I've started a blog entitled "Four Chords & Seven Years Ago." While the name may seem cheesy, the intent is anything but that. What I hope to accomplish is to open your ears (and mine) to something that you may not have heard before in hopes that it will drive you to explore music. I'll be grabbing people within the industry to contribute weekly. Head to the replies to read the first installment, which is an introduction to the feature and I talk about Down To Earth Approach.

It's been a year since Down To Earth Approach decided to call it a day. In memory of their valiant years as a band, they wanted us to have three ABSOLUTExclusive b-sides from their 2007 album, Come Back to You, which you can now download for free. Also to bring back the good times, the band has included a video of random tour moments and commentary from good friend and tour buddy, Aaron. See all of this at the band's AP.net Profile.
