Song of the Week | Aly & AJ – Take Me

Photo credit: Stephen Ringer This week the WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is on the long awaited new single, “Take Me,” from sister duo Aly & AJ. The track is the first new material in ten years and marks a significant change of direction for the musicians. The decade long hiatus appears to have helped shake off the discouragement they had fallen into with the music business after a successful charge out of the gate twelve years ago following the release of their debut album, Into The Rush, which went on to become a gold record. Aly and AJ Michalka have known success in both the music and acting world,…

Today we focus the WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight directly on the fantastic debut single, “Driving Around,” from the talented L.A. musician Kelsey Kerrigan’s upcoming album due to be released this fall. Kerrigan began work on the record at Sunset Sound Recorders while pursuing a degree in audio engineering and production at Los Angeles Recording School. A fateful meeting with Ryan Adams (Yes THAT Ryan Adams) would help to shape the sound and style of her work, providing a musical compass to keep the song-writing on track even while immersed in her studies. It would seem as though everything is falling into place now that the album is complete and…
