Scott Holt - Thought Provoking Blues Artist with a HUGE guitar sound.

Photo of Scott Holt by Stephen Ferry

Thought provoking blues rocker, Scott Holt, is one of the hardest working blues artists you will find. Just check out his tour schedule and you'll know what we mean.

His blues tracks are hard hitting and grooving. His master guitar works will leave guitar fans very happy that this guy is helping keep the blues alive.

One of his songs entitled "How Do We Sleep" is what gives him that "Thought Provoker" title. He questions war, disease, poverty and how do we sleep knowing what we know. Artists who write thoughtful lyrics like this are heroes to us here at MusicLoad.

Please check Scott Holt out at MySpace.Com/ScottHolt


Hanggai - Traditional Chinese World Music Group based in Beijing - Most Interesting Music We Have Found In A While!

MusicLoad.Com presents the music of Hanggai

Hanggai is a traditional Chinese world music group from inner Mongolia, presently based in Beijing, China. It is one of the most interesting music groups MusicLoad has come across in quite a while. Whilst we cannot understand the Chinese lyrics, we are impressed and mezmerized by the quality of the instrumentation & compositions and the uniqueness of the voices. The music is pure and raw, yet it sounds as if the music is tailor made for a major motion picture soundtrack for the biggest of films. The music evokes a serious wide range emotions while listening. Enjoy! GC

One Day As A Lion - Maximal Hip Hop - Minimalist Noise, Funk That You'll Love

Anti Records recording artists "One Day As A Lion" is a recorded interaction between progressive rap rock vocalist Zack de la Rocha and drummer Jon Theodore from Los Angeles, California. We are not joking when we say this minimalist sounding rage has "it". Their track entitled "Wild International" is literally off the hook!

One of their band friends on myspace, Slight Curvature (, said this about One Day As A Lion: "Makes you wonder where the real groove in Rage came from..." in reference to the Rage Against the Machine sound. That comment pretty much sums it up for MusicLoad.Com and we've said enough.

Listen to One Day As A Lion at

Pillow Theory - Outstanding Hybrid Rock/Soul/Funk Sounds

Photo by Caitlin Casella

Pillow Theory befriended MusicLoad.Com at our MySpace.Com/MusicLoad page. In that hit or miss world of listening to bands non stop, Pillow Theory turned out to be a band that we actually listened to all of their tracks with a happy smile on our faces with the volume knob cranked up to 10+.

The band defies a pigeon hole description, except to say it has hints of hard rock band Living Color with other hints of Seal. But that is only a surface description.

A Sweet Treat by the name of Gaby Moreno

MusicLoad.Com presents Gaby Moreno
Gaby Moreno is one of MusicLoad's most favorite unknown artists. Her most recent album entitled "Still The Unknown" is very organic, minimalist from a production standpoint and raw.

She is one of those artists who opens up a show softly and people keep talking and chatting like nobody is on stage. After a few moments, however, crowds become dead silent as they hang onto ever nuance of Gaby as she digs deep in her bag of soul.
