Track Feature: Katie Bogle - Think Of You (A Lot)

Katie Bogle's new track "Think of You (A Lot) is the kind of energetic and rhythmic pop you would hear blasting out of your radio on hot summer day.

The track has a great flow as Katie sings with a warm and infectious tone. And this a good thing considering she is singing about someone she really cares about. So yes it is sincere, but a lot of fun too.

Now that is the way it should be with a good catchy pop tune! So roll down the windows and crank up the volume!

Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck


About Katie: https://www.facebook.com/katie.bogle.37

Katie Bogle is a queer female artist based out of the northwest suburbs of Chicago. The singer/songwriter has dedicated her solo career to making original pop music with upbeat rhythms and simple melodies.

Heavy influences range from nostalgic 90’s acts like Third Eye Blind, blink-182, and Alanis Morissette to the pop infused, dance-rock stylings of The 1975 and Jack Antonoff. Bogle has channeled each of these artist’s styles to create her own edgy verses and catchy choruses while contemporizing the lyrics and song structure.

New Group RUFFYUNZ Featuring Guest Artists Pat Travers & T.C. Tolliver To Release Debut Album


Featuring Pat Travers and members of The Plasmatics and Cactus!

RUFFYUNZ is a partnership between Randy Pratt (Cactus/The Lizards), Emmy winning engineer JZ Barrell, and singer Ed Terry and a collection of drum and guitar masters. Guest artists include guitar legend Pat Travers and drummer T.C. Tolliver from The Plasmatics. The songs are mainly about sex, animalistic sex, with a couple of “Dark Dread” numbers thrown in for bad measure.

“Funky, Heavy & Tight” is RUFFYUNZ credo!

Bassist Randy Pratt on bass, pedals and riffs and is best known for his work with The Lizards & Cactus. Singer Ed Terry has sung live with Stevie Wonder, Sister Sledge, John Oates, Sissy Houston, Slash and recorded with John Lennon, Keith Richards, Talking Heads, Simply Red, Little Steven, David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Fleetwood Mac, David Lee Roth, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner! JZ Barrell handles recording, engineering, mixing and arranging…he earns his writing credits. Jesse Berlin is the band's “go-to-first guitarist” usually and helps set a bedrock with embellishments.

The band's concept is to use “known” drummers and guitarists as guests on their records. Once the guest guitarist has done his or her thing, Jesse trades solos with them…and he really throws down the gauntlet, as he SHREDS!!

Says Randy, “The songs are written bass/drums first, creating a lot of grooves and BIG RIFFS. From decades of reading Bass Player magazine, it seems most song writing bassists don’t write on bass…so I hope that gives us a bit of a unique vibe….plus my ever growing collection of uncommon effect pedals, not intended for bass, influence the way I play and the stuff I come up with. After the sessions, my partner JZ Barrell arranges the music into more  defined song form. Usually, Ed Terry writes his vocals and lyrics, quickly, and records them at his home studio. Amazingly, it seems like we go with his first takes 90% of the time! Also, he writes most of his vocals to bass and drums, which is 'different', too, isn’t it? Josh and I produce the records. Then guitar is added to make the compositions come alive, searching for that sweet spot where James Brown and Black Sabbath collide.”

RUFFYUNZ next record is in the works now with and exciting new cast of guest players!
