Recommended Posts



Press release:

Rough Cutt announce the Worldwide premier of their New Video and Single: Black Rose.

Premiering March 25th at 3:33 pm eastern time on Facebook live at Bravewords.com

and all Bravewords Platforms. Join us also for a live Q&A with the band following the World premier of the video.

Hailing from the Sunset Strip’s hair metal days, Rough Cutt has gained a faithful audience worldwide and is excited to announce the release of their new video and single, Black Rose! It brings forth a new sound with reminiscent elements of their first two Warner Bros albums, and a new lineup with pioneers Chris “The Count” Hager on guitars and Dave Alford on drums. New guitarist and Shrapnel Records recording artist Darren Householder joins the ranks along with Oregon native and Pacific Northwest musician Jeff Buehner on bass guitar . Filling the shoes of the singer was no easy task, and required a dynamic talent and presence. Rough Cutt is happy to introduce new singer and Sunset Strip veteran Steven St. James! Steven fronted the prominent LA band “Sarge” in the 80’s and soon became a Motown recording artist. His soaring range and melodic sense will usher you in to a new sound, new songs, and yes, the new Rough Cutt.

I agree, St. James sounds pretty good.  The song isn't bad by any means but a little lackluster as a single to showcase a new era of the band.  The chorus reminds me a little of something Paul Stanley might have recorded during the mid-80s.
