West & Run defines itself with latest release, New Kid

Written by Jayson Bussa | Monday, 09 December 2013 12:41 |

Ryley Grayson doesn’t like to get caught up in discussion about labels or musical genres. Him and his band, West & Run, just want to play the music they like and let the cards fall where they may. Alive and kicking in one form or another for the last three years, West & Run has toiled away in the West Michigan music scene, slinging a high-energy, peppy brand of rock that many might call pop rock.

The coming year might be the biggest yet for Kalamazoo's Megan Dooley

Written by Jayson Bussa | Thursday, 24 October 2013 14:09 |

It's fair to call Megan Dooley the First Lady of Kalamazoo Music. Listening to Dooley recount the early days of her career requires a serious stroll down memory lane, which is a trip for those who pine for days where venues like Club Soda, Mr. Wonderfuls and Kraftbrau held the scene together. "It's been 13 years since I got on stage for the first time to play music; I was 15," Dooley said.
