Chloe Dolandis' debut album, Bring Back the Fever, may have been released as a jazz album in 2011, but, as the Boca-bred artist told New Times in a recent interview, there's More to her talents than being “pigeon-holed into one genre.” That's why the "young voice with an old soul" is releasing her five-track EP which features nothing but the singer's "voice and only a single instrument."
Fuel's original lineup may be a thing of the past, but Brett Scallions is keeping the band alive. And this week, the voice behind "Falls On Me," "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)," and all your fave rock anthems of the '00s will be taking over Fort Lauderdale's Culture Room. But don't worry — Scallions promises he and his crew will "play the songs you know" and "bring out the hits."
