20 years ago our founder worked in radio at a large station in a large market in the USA learning the ropes with the best in the business the same year Hard Drive with legendary Rock Radio DJ Lou Brutus debuted each week in 1996!

With access to the best DJ's, the best Rock music (ON-AIR, CD and Singles) that "DIDN'T" make the cut at the station our founder worked at, he suddenly found himself in a very unique situation surrounded by THOUSANDS of "rejected" CD's by bands most never heard of... including the DIAMOND of an (EP) "I Was Dog" and the subsequent follow up debut full-length album "I Was Here" ft. "Super Car", "Another Story" "Blueprint For A Possible Song" and MORE!
I Was Here (Reprise/Warner), despite it's rapidly growing "cult following" with alternative rock music fans the worldwide.

2 it's credit "I Was Dog" and "I Was Here" by Love In Reverse quite literally helped change our founders life for the better by opening his mind up to new and different approaches to songwriting, production, packaging, promotion and MORE for the emerging music artist. As he was encouraged to "Think outside the box" and allow himself to experiment with ideas that he thought needed to change within the music industry to better serve the interests of the artist FIRST and help them UP, versus focusing on what the artists can or should be doing to help the label UP.

Love In Reverse (among others like Failure, SeLF, Protein, P.O.L., MyHead, Schleprock, NIrvana, The Toadies, Meat Puppets and MANY others who were "experimenting" with pushing themselves and the music as it was back then to NEW plateaus and in new directions, often incorporating MANY different feels and/or genres 2gether 2 make things fresh and vibrant and relevant to a NEW generation that was breaking free of what "was" into what "could be" and eventually MANY years later was infused into MANY emerging music artists approaches due to these heavy influences by the creative geniuses of the 90's like Michael Farentino and Love In Reverse and others that had a positive impact on our founder and still does to this very day!

This is MORE of a Comment than a "Review", because the truth is the only way to Review Greatness is to encourage YOU the listener 2 get YOUr own copy of the (EP) I Am Dog and just... LISTEN!
When YOU do, YOU may just find what our founder did 20 years ago this year (2016)...
Greatness is decided ultimately by those who LISTEN!... "REAL FANS!' we call YOU at [UP]hiLL Radio! YOU hold MORE power 2 "Help Others UP!" than YOU may even know or understand, even in the NEW MUSIC BUSINGESS! The MORE we progress, the MORE "REAL FANS! Make It Happen!"

Sincere thank YOU for those who do LISTEN 2 greatness without rushing passed in a hurry to the other side of another "HIT' song, which sadly is too often the case within the Music Business!

With influences from the Love In Reverse band story and others. our founder has been on a quest to continually improve his 'ear" and "eye" for talent in all genres in hopes 2 "Help Others UP!" that may otherwise "fall through the cracks" of the industry like it so often happens for approximately 1 in 7 artists who are signed, according to insider statistics by Reprise Records on the ABC TV Special "So, You Wanna Be A Rock Star?", featuring the rise and fall of Love In Reverse AND Peter Frampton (Frampton Comes Alive!) fame.
