Published April 16, 2014

Lyla Foy's solo recordings, released under the name WALL, first drew attention to the 25-year-old. Now, signed to Sub Pop worldwide, Foy, has ditched the stage name and issued her full-length debut. Foy opens for Wake Owl Turner Hall Ballroom on Saturday, April 19. The show is the first of her U.S. tour. We talked to her from London about the record and the tour.

The third time in Milwaukee is the charm for indie folk band Wake Owl

Published April 14, 2014

When Wake Owl first arrived in town, they were at the bottom of a three-band bill at the Cactus Club with their freshly released debut EP, "Wild Country." Since then, their crowds and popularity have only grown, moving up to a $10 Pabst Pub gig last June and now a Friday night headliner gig at Turner Hall Ballroom. And instead of a five-song EP, Cameron and company arrive with a brand new full album, "The Private World of Paradise."

Published March 30, 2014

Nashville's Wild Cub, who played here in February, is back for another gig at Turner Hall, on Tuesday, April 8, opening for American Authors. Because the band was so recently here, we reprise our interview with singer/guitarist Keegan DeWitt, but with a little update about that February visit.

A chat with Irish soul singer James Vincent McMorrow

Published March 28, 2014

When I saw James Vincent McMorrow at a small afternoon radio set at The Pabst Pub, I knew he was someone to watch. Now, with a modest hit album under his belt and a new album making the rounds, McMorrow is back in town for a show tonight at Turner Hall Ballroom. Before he hits the stage, OnMilwaukee.com got a chance to chat with the Irish singer about his new album, his inspirations and why Milwaukee is a special stop for him.

"The Sing Off" champs Home Free bring a cappella to country

Published March 20, 2014

Before the country a cappella group Home Free takes The Pabst Theater stage for two shows Thursday night, I talked to tenor Rob Lundquist about the group's origins, its time on "The Sing Off," and why country music and a cappella just haven't gotten along until now.

"X Factor" group Fifth Harmony attempts to make a name for itself

Published March 19, 2014

Less than two years ago, girl group Fifth Harmony was being judged by Top 40 pop star Demi Lovato on the now-defunct Fox singing competition "The X Factor." Now, they're touring the nation alongside the former Disney star. It's been a long, odd road to get to this point for the five ladies who were suddenly smashed together into a girl group live on TV and eventually finished in third place on the show.

Mullen and The Works will rock you

Published March 17, 2014

When frontman extraordinaire Freddie Mercury passed away in late 1991, the opportunity to experience the sound, fury and spectacle of Queen live appeared to be gone for good. But in 2000, a young singer named Gary Mullen appeared on the British TV talent show "Stars in Their Eyes" doing his remarkable impersonation of Mercury. Two years later, he created "One Night of Queen."

Published March 15, 2014

Country music star Cassadee Pope is one of the select few - five to be exact - to come away as a winner on NBC's hit show "The Voice," charming viewers and taking the title back in 2012. Before she hits Milwaukee for two performances today, OnMilwaukee got a chance to talk to the singer about her experience on "The Voice" and a Milwaukee venue she calls one of her favorites.

Forget rubber, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. burning up dance floor instead

Published March 13, 2014

When you hear the name Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., there are certain sounds - growling engines, fierce loud automotive roars, squealing wheels - you instantly imagine. But don't be fooled by the odd NASCAR-themed moniker. Or maybe do be fooled. Maybe that's the point.

Where there's Hood Smoke, there's a bass line on fire

Published March 11, 2014

Bryan Doherty of the Chicago-based jazz-infused rock band Hood Smoke is quietly becoming a star of the bass world. But while his thumping bass lines have that jazzy soul groove sound you'd expect from a band that calls the Windy City home, it's the Cream City that Doherty originally called home.
