Interview: Colorway’s F. Alex Johnson

posted October 9, 2015, 10:43 am by JasonHillenburg | Filed Under Interviews | comment Leave a Comment


Northeastern based Colorway, fronted by singer/songwriter and guitarist F. Alex Johnson, have made an impressive impact in recent years with the release of two full length albums. The first, a self titled effort, introduced the world to a lean, muscular guitar-based attack that embraced pronounced pop sensibilities while practically crackling with intelligence, wit, and insight. The band’s most recent release, The Black Sky Sequined, is another well-crafted collection that develops the first album’s promise into an impressive musical and lyrical statement. It was my good fortune to speak with F. Alex Johnson recently about the band’s first two albums, his songwriting, and the band’s future.

Music Emissions:
I was wondering if you could compare the writing process for the self-titled debut as opposed to the second album, The Black Sky Sequined. Did it come harder?

F. Alex Johnson:
When I was doing the first album… Read more

Jazz Street: Mel Torme

posted October 8, 2015, 8:58 pm by Nathaniel Lathy | Filed Under Jazz Street, Throwback Thursday | comment Leave a Comment


Mel_TormeA broadcast journalism professor told us, “there are no good rock songs. It’s all percussion.” He didn’t find many people nodding in agreement with his statement, which he uttered often. Still, you could see where he was coming from and appreciate his position, when he referred to his hero, Mel Torme. A remarkable singer, he made his mark appearing in films, as well. I watched the musical comedy film “Good News” from 1947. And my first reaction to the movie was that it was corny. I did find myself enjoying the songs with the chance to see Torme sing a particular treat. I had already listened to one record of his songs and had already become a fan. In the previous decade, my interest in jazz continued to grow. And in recent years, I’ve found I can’t get enough of his singing. His voice has an irresistible quality. The arrangements serve him, well. His voice has some similarity to Chet Baker’s. I like Torme’s singing better (I’m a big fan of both artists). He admired the singing of both Ella Fitzgerald and Patty Andrews. I like these singers, as well.

Interview: Bron Don

brondonWe want you to meet the UNSW Contest Winners: ladies and gentlemen, Bron Don! We asked the Boston natives a few questions to get to know them a little better.

What’s the story behind your band’s name and how did you decide to become a band?
Bron Don: To be honest, we don’t even really know the origin of “Bron Don”. Before we became a band, when we were just homies, it was a word we kind of came up with. It had no real meaning yet could mean anything. When John, Mitch and Wolfgang recorded “The Vibes Project” we decided to name ourselves after this mysterious word that we had recently brought to life.

Review: Catch A Fire Tour at The Greek Theatre

posted September 28, 2015, 1:18 pm by Carlita | Filed Under Music News | comment Leave a Comment


3350 Last night, the Greek Theatre got scorched as the Catch A Fire tour passed through LA. On a frenzied night, where many clogged Griffith Park streets and sidewalks, ensnarling them in traffic to view the Blood Supermoon, the crowd’s energy hung in the electric hot night air. Put together to celebrate Bob Marley’s 70th birthday, a loaded lineup minus Barrington Levy brought out reggae lovers from near and far to see Tarrus Riley, Jo Mersa (Stephen’s son and Bob’s grandson), Morgan Heritage, Super Cat, and Grammy winners Stephen and Damian Jr. Gong Marley. Whining, jumping and flag waving all got the crowd hype as I also partook and danced in the photo pit. There’s no doubt Kingston, Jamaica, 420, “One Love” and Rastafarians praising Jah repped.

Review: Ruby Rose at Beta Waterloo

Ruby Rose, of Orange is the New Black fame, tattoo model and DJ, played a set at Beta in Waterloo on September 13, 2015. The night I went to see her, started typically – with a very long line. Luckily, however, my sister has mad connections and we were able to jump the line. Apparently, networking pays off (I’ll have to give it a try some time). Beta filled up quickly, turning into a confused hive of dancing, drinking, the consumption of various substances which induced a variety of strange behavior, and music. Like all worthy celebrities, we were subjected to an opener, Adam Spears.
