“Sweet as pie. And once you get to the chorus… feel like I’m Julia running towards Richard. You know, in the movies.” – Dianna Agron, Glee, YM&C

“Santa Barbara’s Tommy and the High Pilots work a hook like a group weaned on 1990s radio rock. But they throw in inspiration from ’80s greats, too: Mellencamp and Petty on previous albums, Peter Gabriel on their upcoming full-length, Only Human, out

in May on Redbird Records.” –The Pitch, KC
