Driven To Success

Dig into AM Taxi’s history and it might be easy to assume how the Chicago band quickly made it to the Virgin Records roster with their first album We Don’t Stand a Chance. But don’t think you can figure out the whole story, singer Adam Krier says. Krier and bassist Jason Schultejann logged time in ska pop-punk act Lucky Boys Confusion, where Krier also contributed to the songwriting, but...

Quickly Orchestrated

Anniversaire’s album Nightingale may sound like the product of a meticulous, involved studio session, but singer Aaron Jordan says the orchestral pop band knocked out the recording of their debut disc in three days. The Omaha four-piece consisting of Jordan, bassist Travis Ahrenholtz, cellist Megan Siebe and drummer Ben Eberly recorded their album at ARC, the studio owned by the Mogis...

Musical Identity Crisis

Quartetto Gelato would like to change your mind about chamber music. The Canada-based foursome doesn’t just regurgitate the same sonatas and arias that are standard for every classical musician.

The repertoire includes everything from opera and classical, to folk and gypsy songs, and Neapolitan standards, all done with a passionate...

Marathon Man

The first time I saw singer-songwriter Mark Mallman was at a pizza place that no longer exists. October 2005. The sign outside Sammy Sortino's on S. 72nd St. read, "Welcome Piano Man Mark Mallman." As I stepped inside I was overcome by a waft of sour pepperoni and an ocean of nomming families pushing mozzarella-covered glop into their drooling maws. The guy at the door told me Mark Mallberg was...
