You may have heard of Nick Maas, formerly of Neon. In fact, we've had him and Neon on Local Love before! This time he's back under a new alias: Cabin Essence, which is his new solo project. Much of Nick's work has been inspired and influenced by, to name a few, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Who and The Beach Boys. While listening to Cabin Essence, you're almost taken back with the smooth vibes and the feel of 60s rock. It's almost as if you had dropped a needle on a record before hitting play. Check out Cabin Essence LIVE this Saturday (4/16) at The Warehouse or check them out via social media!

Shawn Bohannon, otherwise known as The Rocker Devine, is a retired Marine who now keeps his hard core status through his lyrics. The Rocker Devine delivers his messages and stories of real life through Hip Hop. Although the beats and lyrics may sound intense, as the story behind them is, you'll notice that The Rocker Devine diverts from using the vulgarity that many hardcore rap artists use.
Tune in for Local Love (3.3.16) to hear more about The Rocker Devine, or visit his website here
