Despite all the despair, hopelessness, fear, anxiety, death, destruction, and uncertainty that 2020 has thrown at us, we have all taken solace in our music and found hope through it. We are carried through the pain with messages of inspiration, songs of motivation, and songs that just plain electrified our souls.… Continued →

Dawning Of The Age of Modern Elitism (and it's many annoyances) Reading the cesspool of comments online whether it be Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, or heck even old school “www” websites (remember those?), one is left with a dilemma….do I bite my tongue or join in with the crazy circus monkeys? Hopefully not the latter, am I right?......

Check out my "Best of 2017" List. These are just some of my favorites, not necessarily the "Best" by a definitive standard but just albums I enjoyed this past year. Enjoy!

Hey friends it’s that time again, time for another “list”. Feel free to offer up your big Laugh-Out-Louds and smirks for some “hits” I found appealing 10 years ago. A lot of stuff from that year was enjoyed by me, some I am rediscovering, and others were missed opportunities. Check out my “list” below and feel free to listen to the playlist I created on Spotify for this list found in the article.… Continued →

I have added a bunch of band tshirts, new band specific lots from artists like Dogwood, Forever Changed, Dashboard Confessional, Juliana Theory, Further Seems Forever, and so many more being added each day. There are quite a few “classics” to be found including sealed copies of Sagoh 24/7 first two (and only) releases (band featured members that went on to form Anberlin).… Continued →

I wrote this piece for my Grandfather’s funeral that took place on Friday. In case you didn’t know, my grandfather went into the hospital about 3 weeks ago because of a collapsed lung from a biopsy procedure the week before. They went in to remove the cancerous tumor a few days later and discovered that the cancer had already spread throughout his body.… Continued →

I need to be clear about something. Neither myself, the graphic artists (Benaiah Clothing), or any staff member at IVM are into Illuminati, Free Masonry, or any other “Occult” type organization. The “new” logo was simply chosen because I thought it looked cool and I dug the colors/design. There is no deep hidden meaning behind the lightning bolt eye other than it representing our “Vision” (Indie VISION Music).… Continued →

These titles are MY personal faves of the first half of 2012 (so far). This is only an (MY) opinion and does not reflect the overall personal listening habits of other such staff members at IVM.

Today’s blog is mostly about those long forgotten “Classics”, the bands and/or albums that have been largely overlooked by a new generation (and those that follow). I made a post about this on my facebook page and I figured i’d elaborate on the subject here. Here is what was said: Even though some bands have enjoyed recent reunions (and success), there are numerous others that have been virtually forgotten.… Continued →

I feel I should pull this post out every few years so people can get to know me and my vision for IVM. I wrote this in February of 2009 but much of it is still true and relevant to my life today.
