Randy melodies

Music

Mia Cantu
Folk and blues artist Randy Montgomery started making music when he was 14 years old. As a self-taught guitar player, he would mimic the ways of his musical idols, Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie.

Chad Sullins and the Last Call Coalition — Incommunicado


Country

Joshua Boydston
Just a few minutes into Incommunicado, it becomes painfully obvious that Oklahoma native Chad Sullins knows his Red Dirt, country, classic rock and blues, and he blends them into the perfect barn-party soundtrack. The album plays like The Hangover set in Stillwater instead of Vegas, with all the emotions, amusement and reflections therein.

Feathered Rabbit — Feathered Rabbit


Indie

Zach Hale
Feathered Rabbit is kind of a throwback band. Unlike most others in the digital age, its increased exposure has come by way of a bedazzling live presence and the ensuing word-of-mouth.
