Tuesday: Scattered Melodies feat. Killer Maus – Black Hole

Since their debut album in 2013, they’ve featured over 30 different musicians throughout their releases, ranging from rock, reggae, progressive, funk, and alternative. Scattered Melodies continues to push the boundaries of the way musicians collaborate, in their case being the consistency of drum and bass while featuring the different vocalists & other musicians. Some of their past featured artists include members from Fairy Bones, The Hourglass Cats, Pride Through Strife and Ruca, who have all been showcased on Homegrown. “Black Hole” features the vocals of Killa Maus, you can preview their song below.

Wednesday: All Rights Reserved – Arizona Rain
All Rights Reserved was formed in 2010 in the suburban Phoenix city of Mesa, Arizona. ARR’s members consist of Lead Guitar Player, Hytham Mousa, Lead singer and Guitar player, Craig Hanson, Bassist Andrew Bouk, and drummer Brad O’Brien. The band pays a mixture of original rock tunes with varying influences throughout the decades. The music ranges from angst riddled Punk to Alternative Pop Rock.
With the innate desire to form a band and express his artistic abilities, Craig Hanson, a Montana native, teamed up with native Arizonan Andrew Bouk. Via Craigslist (no pun intended) Craig and Drew discovered the immensely talented lead guitarist in Hytham, whom grew up in a desert on the other side of the world in Egypt – and exceptional drummer Brad, originally from Michigan.
The band co-writes the songs with Singer/Songwriter Craig as the catalyst. As Craig is often quoted saying, “The songs pretty much write themselves.” An idea, riff, or beat by someone and everyone dives in with creative input to produce a song.
After breaking the local music scene in venues across the valley in the years prior to 2015, All Rights Reserved released their first album which is self titled, “All Rights Reserved.” The debut ARR album includes fan favorites such as “Won’t Give Up,” “Cameras,” and “Couch Potato.” That same year ARR Band was successfully launched on Pandora, Spotify, and I Tunes and began to build a beautiful fan base from around the globe. ARR Band says: “Our amazing fans fuel our desire to continue to create the best music we can make, and we are humbled and forever grateful for their support. We love you fans!!!” You can follow ARR on Facebook and Youtube and preview their song “Arizona Rain” below. If you love it, vote to hear em again for the Song of the Week at the bottom of the page.
Thursday: All New Hopes – Hope

Gunnar left the band in early 2016, and after multiple lineup changes, the band concluded on remaining a three-piece.
