The Groundhog Blues: Winter 2013 Releases - Rapping Rock

We continue with the announcement of those releases that made the cut for the eligibility pool of the Platinum Vinyl Awards. This is the last multiple genre post. This time we will combine Rap and Rock. Not really an unheard of mix, as hip hop and rap are getting more rock influenced by the day. Not that I mind.

Rock was a very surprising entrant this time. Maybe having alternative siphons off too many, but having only two entrants for the pool from here in three months was a little surprising. 

Rock Music

  • Apologetix - Hot Potato Soup
  • Colton Dixon - A Messenger
  • I am Empire - Anchors 
  • The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - Et Tu Brute?
Colton Dixon is one of many American Idol castoffs (Hello Mandisa) to grace Christian Music. Personally, my fave so far is Brooke Barretsmith.

Hip Hop/Rap

Rock and Hip Hop are done. Considering that there were no children's music entries this time around, out of 10 genres, we are done with 5 in two posts. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
