Big Time Rush member, Kendall Schmitt has branched out away from the modern boy band to start a new project. He is now part of a new band, Heffron Drive and while its not a huge jump sound wise from BTR, it is slightly different.
With their single, "Parallel", some genre lines are crossed. While it has a dominate pop feel to it, there's also a slight mix of something else that can't quite be named. Its unique to say the least.
Regardless of your thoughts about Big Time Rush, it is highly recommended that you give "Parallel" a listen. You can get the song on iTunes now, and surely an album will be in the near future.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
