PJ LaMariana has released his new album titled ‘For Your’. That initial first listen gives me hope for the independent music scene. That feeling of jam band meets troubadour meets poet gives me a case of the smiles. But, add to that monster hooks and subtle melodies you get the golden era of radio meets the modern era of Spotify. Think golden era Dave Matthews with a touch of The Doobie Brothers filtered through pure originality.
