Scattered Clouds – “Enchanteresse”

We first met Scattered Clouds last year at the RBC Ottawa Bluesfest, and they blew us away with their experimental rock.

The music is […]

Skid Row – “18 and Life 2015”

Your typical Revue reader might not quite get why we’d cover Skid Row. However, they’ve recently released an updated version of their biggest hit, with their new singer.
