Former Trans-Siberian Orchestra vocalist James Lewis has died, and a number of his former bandmates have taken to social media to pay tribute to the singer who was part of the outfit from 2004-2012. A cause of death was not revealed.

Dan Roth broke the news to fans with the following Facebook post, "Today we lost one of the best vocalists and human beings I have ever known...James Lewis. Though he most famously toured and recorded with Trans-Siberian Orchestra for several years, he was one of most down-to-earth people I had ever met. When he lived in New York, he and I would hang out often, laughing and just having a blast. Whether he'd be texting me from backstage while the TSO show was going on, or sending my daughter an unexpected, amazing birthday present, or sharing files and stories from his older bands, or comparing notes and sharing advice on our back issues, he was always such an authentic, nice guy. Nothing but great memories and great music. Rest in Peace, James." (continue)

For Gonzalez, Fantasy's direction and aesthetic was immediately clear. "I wanted this record to be very impactful live," he says.

The combination of guitars and synths is always in my music, but it's maybe more present on this new record than on the previous ones." (continue)

Jean-Philippe Sauve's musical project Feathership recently released a new EP called "Peace Talks". To celebrate we asked Jean-Philippe to tell us about the track "Dream Aloud". Here is the story:

"Dream Aloud was one of the most fun Feathership songs to create and record! Musically and lyrically, the song is a kind of folk-utopian tale that evokes a call to action to collectively be more daring in our fight to avoid global catastrophes. But that collective narrative is also mixed with a more personal story in which the narrator is trying to do the best with his life, as he contemplates where his life is at. (continue)
