Hey ya’ll, it is another Tuesday and I have some music for your listening ears. I am so ecstatic to share this group with you all. I heard a song of theirs on BonnerfideRadio back some time ago and I was sold. For those that know me know I am a music fanatic. I love music and all it offers especially band stuff. My ear is always tuned to the music that brings everything together. I always look at the cd inserts to see who is playing the organ, drums, etc. And this group is so unique because I feel like every member brings their own flavor to the fold and the end result is some crazy out of the box music that you can jam for hours. The song, ‘3 are 1’, is so authentic and I love how each element of music comes together. They have three awesome projects, ‘One Heart at A Time’, ‘The Mixtape’, and ‘The CoverUp’, which I am in the process of hearing more of and reviewing in the coming weeks. They are a 13 member band based in Chicago and they are on a list of my favorite new groups. I want to present to some and introduce to other, Shocking Truth and their story goes something like this:
