    In the Spotlight - Season 3 - Ep. 20 with Mercy Music - A Powered By Rock Podcast Short

    Hey there, it’s Isaac from Powered By Rock here to bring Brendan, Jarred and Rye from Mercy Music into the spotlight for a few minutes, and make them sweat with some on-the-spot questions.

    Welcome, guys. Are you ready to be put in the spotlight?

    1 - Okay, I know during the Palapalooza Podcast you guys were asked to name some of your favorite Vegas bands, and that you kinda forgot some of the bands you wanted to mention. Here’s your shot to redeem yourself. Name as many awesome Vegas bands as you can in 30 seconds…

    2 - In the spirit of the movie Old School, if you guys had to compete in a sort of 3-event competition in order to show that your band is the worthy of its own fraternity what would the 3 non-instrument playing events be, and who is in each event?


    Weight lifting - Jarred
    Fashion show - Brendan
    Dance battle - Rye

    3 - What one musician who is alive would each of you most like to meet?

    4 - If you could make a wish and change something about the Las Vegas music scene to make it better, what would it be?

    5 - Being married and having kids makes it tough to be in a full-time band. How hard is it going to be to leave your families behind when you guys have a world tour after the new album comes out?

    I want to thank the guys from Mercy Music for stepping In the Spotlight and answering these hot seat questions.

    Until we see you again for the next episode,

    Rock on!

    Season 3 - Ep. 23 - The Rock Band Who Should Have Already Been a Famous Headliner with Mercy Music

    Season 3 - Ep. 23 - The Rock Band Who Should Have Already Been a Famous Headliner with Mercy Music

    Welcome to the Season 3 Finale of the Powered By Rock podcast where I am going to be speaking with the Las Vegas rock band Mercy Music about so many things today.

    If you have followed this show for a while, you will know that Brendan was actually on the season finale of season 1 which was almost exactly one year ago today. So, I guess this is just going to be an annual tradition now.

    Well, in that time, I have gotten to know this band a bit better, and having watched them play several shows, I can say that these guys are the best kept secret in rock music.

    The band has a new album coming out in 2023, they have a new SIDE PROJECT band, and they also are going to be headlining a world tour…okay, the last one hasn’t been confirmed yet, but let’s just assume it’s going to happen.

    We’ll be speaking with Brendan, Jarred and Rye from Mercy Music right after this

    In the Spotlight - Season 3 - Ep. 19 with The Moröns - A Powered By Rock Podcast Short

    In the Spotlight - Season 3 - Ep. 19 with The Moröns - A Powered By Rock Podcast Short

    Hey there, it’s Isaac from Powered By Rock here to bring Robbie and Jonny from the punk band The Moröns into the spotlight for a few minutes, and make them sweat with some on-the-spot questions.

    Welcome, guys. Are you ready to be put in the spotlight?

    1 - If you were only going to have one shot to play one of your original songs for your favorite band to show them you are good enough to be on tour with them, what song of yours would you pick, and what band would you be playing in front of?

    2 - You guys talk a decent amount about partying and drinking. If you are throwing a bash, who is the first band member to pass out, what’s their punishment, and what are you guys drinking throughout the night?

    3 - Your new album is called The Book of Morön which alludes to the famous play The Book of Mormon by South Park’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Are you guys fans of South Park? If so, what character from South Park would each member of the band be?

    4 - What were the best and worst shows you guys ever played?

    5 - Robbie, you told me that you guys would be up for a Steak Eating Challenge to match Handheld’s maple syrup chugging contest. Are you ready to start? Just kidding. But if you guys were to compete in a food eating contest, what WOULD you eat, and who do you guys think would win between you?

    I want to thank the guys from The Moröns for stepping In the Spotlight and answering these hot seat questions.

    Season 3 - Ep. 22 - Discussing New Album The Book of Morön with Canadian Punkers The Moröns

    Season 3 - Ep. 22 - Discussing New Album The Book of Morön with Canadian Punkers The Moröns

    I am going to be speaking with the Calgary-based punk band The Moröns today about their new album The Book of Morön which I think is potentially the best punk album of the year, and we will also be talking about some of the other great things the band has been up to, their history, and why they think Canada is so damn punk these days.

    If you haven’t been paying attention, well, you probably need to start listening to these bands from the Great White North, eh?

    We will be speaking with the band about all of this and more right after this.

    In the Spotlight - Season 3 - Ep. 18 with Oh, Lonesome Ana - A Powered By Rock Podcast Short

    Hey there, it’s Isaac from Powered By Rock here to bring Evan Bailey from the Sacramento rock band Oh Lonesome Ana into the spotlight for a few minutes, and make him sweat with some on-the-spot questions.

    Welcome, Evan. Are you ready to be put in the spotlight?

    1 - Now, there are a lot of bands from California, but not necessarily a lot of famous ones from Sacramento. I know Deftones, Cake and Tesla are all from Sacramento. But do you have a favorite band from Sacramento that maybe people haven’t heard of?

    2 - As Sacramento is the capital of California, I figured what better way to really put you in the spotlight than to see how well you know your state capitals. Can you name these state capitals:


    Oregon - Salem
    Nevada - Carson City
    Tennessee - Nashville
    Connecticut - Hartford
    South Dakota - Pierre
    Kentucky - Frankfort

    3 - What is your favorite rock album of all time, and who is your favorite rock band of all time?

    4 - I am not sure why, but when I listen to your album, I am often reminded of the movie Slingblade which is a great film starring Billy Bob Thornton about a boy who has a s****y stepdad (much like the lyrics of the songs on the album). What’s the best Billy Bob movie?


    Bad Santa

    5 - If you could change one thing about California, what would it be?

    I want to thank Evan from the band Oh Lonesome Ana for stepping In the Spotlight and answering these hot seat questions.

    Season 3 - Ep. 21 - Discussing New Album Megadeth Tee with Sacramento Rock Band Oh Lonesome Ana

    Hello and welcome to the Powered By Rock podcast where I am going to be speaking with the Sacramento indie rock band Oh Lonesome Ana about their incredible new album Megadeth Tee, the process for creating it, and so much more.

    I got the chance to hear about this band through a press release for their single “Rushing Lattice” that had a music video accompaniment, and just from watching that video, I knew I had to learn more about this band and made sure to check out the full album when it came out.

    We’ll talk more about why this band is so incredible, and why I think you should also be listening to them right after this.
