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.
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!
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.
FUBAR is an original band from Irwin, PA that loves making music with our own unique blend of rock, reggae, punk and ska. We have been around since 2011 and our music has evolved along with our line up. We’ve opened for a handful of national acts, played the final Pittsburgh stop of Vans Warped Tour and played over a hundred shows from basements, backyards and bars to large stages and concert venues. We look forward to bringing more music in 2019!
With the world in a current state of quarantine, lockdown and uncertainty due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, positivity for our global community seems to be in short supply. Everyone is looking for a way to cope. Social media platforms have become the norm for virtual interaction and connection as social distancing is in full effect. And in the wake of the virus’ stronghold on a day to day activities as well as the global economy, music venues have closed, concerts cancelled and tours postponed possibly until 2021. But the soundtrack of our lives continues to play a group of musical artists have come together to write and record an all-new, original song to bring both music and hope back to the forefront while raising some much-needed awareness for and thanks to those who have been working countless hours to keep our world healthy and well.

We are two-person (for now), female-fronted, indie rock band. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, we’ve been waiting a long time to get to this point. For years,
we’ve dreamed of recording our music, so we could share it. Finally, the
advances in technology that allow at-home studios to record and produce
professional-grade music have made this possible. “What happens to a dream
deferred?” Sometimes the dream is realized!
With an eclectic list of dozens of songs written over the years, our challenge is to
record, mix, master and produce a song a month until all the songs are released.
Our first album has fourteen diverse songs to kick off our journey.
Many more on the way…
