Empire Road Band Review: Bonus Free song downloads

Music, to me, is the purest form of expression.  The right song will transport you to another place or time.  The truly great songs can evoke a clear memory of where you were when you first heard it. I can  listen to music and instantly it clears away all of the stress or burdens of the day and completely transforms my mood.  The old saying is that music calms the savage beast and the beast for most of us is the daily grind of our lives.

My taste in music is as eclectic as the many genres that are out there waiting to be heard.  I listen to just about every form of music with  few exceptions.  Country, old rock, modern rock , and blues are my favorites.  I was recently introduced to a band,  Empire Road .  I had the privilege of listening to 5 songs from their EP.    Empire Road is passionate about their music, which is obvious in the tracks from their self-titled EP.   Founded in 2009, Empire Road consists of  five guys based in New york,  Joe Lorge (lead vocals), Mark Lichtenstein (guitar/vocals) , Peter Horowtiz (guitar) , Nick Tortora (drums) and Marc Horowitz (bass guitar). 

These talented musicians do not box themselves into just one classification of music and definitely stray from the mainstream with a sound that is edgy, classic and unique all at the same time.  The first time I heard “Wasted Away” , I found myself already singing along by the chorus and completely forgot that this was a band I was hearing for the first time, they felt like old friends, comforting and real. 

Their songs are powerful with memorable lyrics and their musicianship is flawless. Listening to the songs made me feel like I was listening to live music and  I have to admit, it only took hearing  one song to call myself a fan.  I instantly downloaded the songs for my Ipod so I can take them wherever I go.  I spent my teenage years in the wonderful 80’s and their music has that sort of feel for me.  Their sound is unique and as hard as I tried to compare them to another band, I could not come up with a single one.  

Empire Road is giving access to their songs to all of my readers.  Listen to each track and I’m sure you will love them as much as I do.

Fizz bath Shop: Review and contest

I am a girl that loves to be pampered and I love finding new products that make me feel relaxed and rejuvenated.  I have always been a firm believer in the healing power of a hot bath and great products.  As I have gotten older, I have come to realize the need and significance of using all-natural and organic products, not only on my skin but from an Eco standpoint as well.  

I was recently introduced to the Fizz Bath shop
and I absolutely love their products, which are 100% natural and mostly organic.   I received the lip balm and it is a soft, velvety treat for my lips, with absolutely no stickiness what so ever.  The mood balm smells intoxicating and I applied it to the underside of my wrists and it really did give my mood a little jump start.  

The Bath Fizzes and bubbling salts
are extraordinary and I especially love the one for aches and pains as I have arthritis and it felt so luxurious soaking in them, and oh! Mama did it relieve the aches!  From coconut milk to clean out impurities to serenity that can help ease headaches and upset stomachs, you are absolutely sure to find a few favorites.

The Lip scrub  is something unique that I had never heard of.  Living in Michigan winters makes my lips dry and peel and this scrub erases the dead skin and leaves my lips feeling fresh and smooth and the orange scent is amazing as well. 

 The sugar body scrubs  are my absolute favorite.  I have used a lot of scrubs and most of the time the oil lifts to the top and you have to wade through it to get to the scrub.  You will not have this problem with this scrub.  The oils they use stay mixed and the scent is heavenly.  I used the lavender scrub and wow, it left my skin flower petal soft.

I have started a wish list of products I am going to get for myself because they have so many to choose from and I want to try them all.  The headache balm is first on my list as I suffer from headaches very often and am tired of always taking medication.  Here is just a few of their unique products you are going to want to get your hands on…

  • Foot repair kit
  • Pedi butter
  • Bubble drop bath fizz
  • Bath and body oil
  • shower steams
  • Body butters
  • Eye balm

and so much more.  Browse through their website  and make your own wish list, I  know you will love these products as much as I do.  Fizz Bath shop is having a contest on Pinterest, Pin and win.   You can win a $100 Gift card to Fizz Bath shop and a $100 Visa gift card. The contest will run from April 1st thru April 30th and the winner will be announced on May 15th.  Follow the easy instructions to enter.  Make sure you stop by their twitter and facebook pages to show them some love and tell them I sent ya!

I received one or more of these products for free.  I only recommend products that I would use myself or believe would benefit my readers.
