Local composer discusses the inspiration for his “Madame Bovary” concerto

Written by Samara Napolitan | Monday, 03 October 2016 09:30 |

It depends on who you ask, but Gustave Flaubert’s literary masterpiece “Madame Bovary” is about either a hapless dreamer or an adulterous drama queen.

When patrons visit National Parks, they expect to hear the wild sounds of nature — the wolves howling, geysers churning and insects humming, but perhaps not plucked spines of an amplified cactus.

Razz Na$-T Shoots ‘Planet Cracker’ Video

Written by Eric Mitts | Thursday, 04 August 2016 08:24 |

When REVUE got a hold of Grand Rapids rapper Razz Na$-T earlier this summer, he was gearing up for a life-altering trip to Las Vegas. 

However, his destination wasn’t just the alluring glitz of the Vegas strip — it was the natural splendor of Lake Tahoe, the site of his latest music video.

“Just know that it involves motorcycles, a devil and a demon, the desert, clear water, blue skies, and of course California evergreens,” said Razz, aka Riley Dean. “The rest is a surprise.”

Billy Strings Moves from Traverse City to Music City

Written by Dwayne Hoover | Friday, 29 July 2016 08:46 |

With a youthful and punk-fueled exuberance, picking and vocal capabilities that seem well beyond his years, and a heart steeped in traditional music, a live performance by William Apostol (aka Billy Strings) is truly an experience.  High energy meets raw talent in an electrifying, twangy and sometimes dizzying way.

Apostol has made quite a name for himself in the bluegrass scene as a gifted guitarist out of Traverse City. He’s spent the last couple of years touring heavily with mandolinist Don Julin and playing the music he was brought up on as a kid. In late 2015, however, Apostol announced he was parting ways with Julin and moving to Nashville to embark on his solo career.
