Upstate, NY’s Artisan play melodic hardcore with drive and heart. “Living in a consistent state of pessimism will create a harsh dynamic between yourself and the rest of the world, hindering your friendships, relationships and…well…your life in general really,” opines vocalist Jackson Corbo.
I was looking forward to seeing the band share the stage with Hundreth and Meridian at a recent Poughkeepsie, NY show but the gig was snowed out. I hit up the band and made sure we still connected anyway, because they are doing things right in many ways.

I live in Melbourne (Aus) and the scene here is awesome. I love being part of the community here whether I’m in a band, running a show or writing! There are so many great artists coming up who are putting out great music that by the time I’ve listened to it all and I’m ready to pen my views something else comes along and grabs me with its riffs and blasts all over again!!! I’m a relatively new contributor to DS but it’s been a great experience so far and I’m looking forward to adding more in 2015. Til then here‘s what grabbed me the most this year locally and internationally. Some bands you probably won’t know, some you will. Enjoy :)Add to My Radar
