Most rock & roll music aficionados will agree that collectively, the best music we ever produced came out of the 60s and 70s. And then many will agree that this trend partially continued into 80s rock and then into the 90s with grunge.
However, after the 90’s most will again begin to agree that rock’n roll (and most all of popular music produced after this time period) took a huge nosedive.
Yes there were always the few artists here and there that broke from the norm to create music that stood out from the mob masses but they were the exception rather than the rule.
What happened? Was it a corporate takeover of music that caused such a descending spiral? Was it the lack of psychedelic -drug usage in creative circles? Was it the decline of supportive musical/artistic communities? Or was it some government-supplied creativity destroying sedative added to our water supply? Ha! Maybe it was a combination of all of these factors and more.
Speed up to the year 2016, right now when the world is most definitely on the verge of being more chaotic than it ever was. Is really good rock music is slowly starting to make a comeback? Yes! It is!
And this is occurring with no help from the corporate powers that be. It’s happening because independent musicians are creating their own type of music artistry. With an entrepreneurial spirit they are bypassing traditional routes of music production/distribution and going into their own personally built recording studios and making music the way they want it to be made. After that they use social media and all available online musical resources to make their music heard, known and loved.
Thank the rock’n roll Gods and Goddesses that they are doing this!
“In the Wind,” an acoustic rock duo in the state of Maine led by Joe Tucci and Seth Leaf Pruzansky have decided to take matters into their own hands. They have created universally appealing acoustic rock music that explores such themes as human consciousness, political independency and the freedom of self-expression.
On their bandcamp page below they have released three songs in anticipation of their soon to be released full-length album.
Please listen to the songs on their bandcamp page

And if you’re into it, please share this music with others. If you really like their music than let them know. If you don’t then find some other independent musicians whose music you do like and please help support their efforts.
If enough rock music connoisseurs begin to support independent musicians then maybe, just maybe there is a good chance that we could experience a full-blown revival of pleasing to the ear music in this and in the coming decade
