Maize is a folk trio based in Columbus, OH made up of Maggie Lynch, Alan Dill, and Tom Kocab. Their recently released single “Leaves” was recorded by Johnny Franck of Attack Attack! fame and is your quintessential love song centered around Autumn. Lyrically, the band has a bit of maturing to do, but this single is ear candy with its harmonies and light, carefree licks of the guitar. You can stream/get the single below:
Rekoncyle is a faith based rock band from Quispamsis, New Brunswick, Canada. They are seeking to follow in the footsteps of fellow countrymen Hawk Nelson, Thousand Foot Krutch, Nine Lashes and others with publicity around their debut release, Resolution (available on iTunes and Amazon). With radio airplay across the pond already, they seem to be on their way. While I AM TUNED UP does not feel the band is bringing much that is new to the table in the way of sound, we admire the international recognition the band has received already and think they have the potential to break out in the future. Listen to one of their singles below, and see what you think.
