Kittanning, Pennsylvania based rock outfit A Common Crown have been pretty busy as of late, dropping their new single “Awake” and album The Reckoning . Their rise in the Pittsburgh scene has been somewhat of a slow burner, having really branched out within the last year and establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with (no pun intended). Having already started with top notch musicians; they have found their sound, their groove and they are ready to take on the world, starting with Pittsburgh.
Mostly playing the bar scene in around Pittsburgh, PA. As of the shutdown of all bars I have been doing live streams every Wednesday and Friday on my Youtube Channel. Come see/hear!
All recordings include me singing, playing guitar, bass, and in most cases drums and whatever else in a very rough fashion.
Originally hailing from Toronto, Chrystyna Marie sings with a powder keg voice over a cocktail of grungy blues and pop. The classically trained Canadian-born singer has supported Ontario acts and been featured as a demo singer on indie labels from as young as 18 years old.
Chrystyna has taken first place in various categories in the Kiwanis Music Festival 2 years in a row. She’s taken lead roles in local community plays; West Side Story as Maria and Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Over the years, she has racked up a long list of smaller roles in music videos, television and was also the lead singer in an LA founded pop group called Greencat. Writing and releasing her own music, with her own unique voice, however, is where her true passion lies.
Believing the classics are just as essential as modern favorites, she finds musical inspiration in everyone from Janis Joplin, Ottis Redding and Etta James to Selena and Christina Aguilera.
Although Chrystyna has been represented by several independent labels over the years, she decided that in order to shape the sound she wanted, releasing music on her own was absolutely necessary.
Chrystyna says about her music, ” Breath is life, and life is music. I wanted to create music from personal experiences and true emotions. Something the everyday person can relate to and build strength from having been exposed to it. With a raw and gritty feel to emulate these experiences and emotions.”
Her first solo single, “Loaded Gun”, is proof that this was the right choice, revealing the first taste of Marie’s gritty take on the blues.
Hard hitting, head banging, straight forward Heavy Metal is the mission of Corners of Sanctuary – nothing less will do. Old School is back with a vengeance…. Metal has returned – COSnROLL!
A D&D Campaign that came to life and formed a metal band. The legend of DETHLEHEM began in the realm of GHORUSALEM many eons ago. During their journey, the warriors of DETHLEHEM have traveled through time and space to do battle against dragons, wizards, warlocks, leviathans, shape-shifters, and a sh*t ton of other things that needed to be SLAIN (for XP, duh).
It’s hard to tell whether Frank Vieira found country music, or whether country found him, but there’s no denying it’s a perfect fit. You can hear the passion in his voice and see it in his face when he performs, from the heartfelt, “I’m Right Here”, to the everyman anthem, “Fill it Up.” Frank’s sophomore EP set to release in June reflects an impressive maturity as a songwriter and performer.
