Introducing: Pablo Embon

posted November 28, 2016, 2:29 pm by Brian Rutherford | Filed Under Introducing | comment Leave a Comment


Pablo Embon originally hails from Argentina, rich in its history of tango and Andean folk music, where he learned from famed classical guitarist Eduardo Isaac. Pablo played in several modern bands and as a single musician in his youth.cache_14832517

Later in life, Embon immigrated to Israel where its unique blend of klezmer, Hebrew and Middle Eastern music no doubt had an influence on the musician who at this point had already spent years creating and performing unique modern and alternative jazz compositions.

Embon started his music education at very young age. As a child he developed intuitive composition skills, adopting piano and guitar as his core musical instruments. Later on, he pursued advanced music education in the composition and harmonization fields and won recognitions in several public music contests in Argentina.

Once in Israel, Embon became an independant musician. He continued his education in music recording, production and orchestration, releasing nine music albums between 2004 and 2009, all including original composition and arrangements. These albums contain different music styles, such as alternative, smooth and fusion jazz, orchestral instrumentals and solo piano with some classical music influences.

Embon is not a purist when it comes to jazz. His music is fusion, drawing on direct on indirect influences that include Pat Metheny, Azymuth (a great band from Brazil that emerged in the 1970s), the late bassist Jaco Pastorius and Chick Corea’s Return to Forever (especially the early edition with Airto Moreira and Joe Farrell).

With over 35 years of music experience, Pablo Embon has the advantage over other egregiously talented musicians in that he is highly accomplished on multiple instruments and has had the privilege of studying and composing in vastly different geographic sectors.

Summer Series

pssummerseriestourposter1proofb-1

Remember those awkward school discos with the teacher’s favorite 80s classics on repeat? Those days are over. The Playground Sounds revolution is here.

In what could possibly be the coolest thing to hit schools since Sunnyboy Ice Blocks, some of the buzziest names in Australian (and international) music are heading back to where it all began, playing schoolyard sets across the nation this summer. From October, Jake Stone (Bluejuice), Just a Gent, KLP, The Aston Shuffle and even Zia from The Dandy Warhols are among those who will DJ at lucky schools as part of a one-of-a-kind silent disco for students.

The whole shebang is thanks to Playground Sounds, a brand new health and wellbeing program that encourages students to get moving through the use of silent disco headsets. Busting out a unique mini festival experience for students from ages 5-18, Playground Sounds also offers a unique incentive for kids to exercise. Tracking movement with the use of a wireless heart rate monitor around the student’s wrist, it records individual student activity and also provides real time updates on the student’s intensity during the program.

Introducing: Drew Cole

posted October 22, 2016, 10:04 pm by Carlita | Filed Under Introducing | comment Leave a Comment


Reading through New York based musician Drew Cole’s compelling bio, one might mistake it for a copy of a screenplay for the latest Academy Award nominated film. Experiencing personal trauma and tragedy at an early age, Drew sought comfort in music and moved with an aunt to a historical Upper West Side neighborhood enclave that greats like Nat King Cole, Roberta Flack, Duke Ellington and John Lennon also called home. His aunt, who would become an influential figure in his life, provided Drew proximity to cultural institutions like Lincoln Center and its impeccable vinyl record library, as well as access to his first guitar and piano. Those instruments opened up a new world and led to memorable moments throughout his storied career, facing addiction and adversity along the way.

We recently corresponded with Drew, who recently released several projects this year including his latest EP, ‘It’s All About Me’ on Bandcamp, to ask some random questions about his fascinating life. Read more

Introducing: Celadon Candy

posted October 2, 2016, 7:22 am by Brian Rutherford | Filed Under Introducing | comment Leave a Comment


According to the NY Journal, the origins of Celadon Candy can be traced back to 2010 when Paul Allgood and his band Wedlock were doing much better on hiatus. Multi-instrumentalist and programmer Jason Bowden had done a couple remixes for the band, but he was more Mr. “self-contained” than Mr.” band mate.” Fore-warnings aside, he and Allgood still collaborated, producing a pair of short EPs(cc: and fwd:) subsequent to splitting up. cccwideKeyboardists Josh Whitehead and Jorge Rangel were also near casualties in wake – save for Allgood and Rangel keeping in touch for sporadic work on remixes and other band demos.UK Indie Trinity Eclipse took note and asked to release their compiled work as a full album , entitled “Celadonia.”

Music Emissions: Tell us about the history of Celadon Candy…

Celadon Candy:

Just before Wedlock’s Witnesses EP came out in 2010, I began working on a side project with multi-instrumentalist Jason Bowden, who had remixed a couple of Wedlock tracks prior to that.

Name five artists of extreme genre that inspire Celadon Candy’s sound?

Five is probably too many to list, but I hear anything from Peter Gabriel to Phil Collins, to a slightly more electronic version of Pink Floyd in general I hear something British and synth pop.

If you could share the stage with any artist, live or dead, who would it be?

I think it would be fun to open for somebody like Scritti Politti or Howard Jones – I think it would have been fun to perform with the Associates, A.R. Kane. It’s just a matter of who would take us.

Lets play word association, you respond with a one word answer to the following

Spotify, Pandora or Youtube: Exposure
Trump or Clinton: Trudeau
Record Labels: Yes
Social Media: Sometimes


Favorite cover song of all time?

Too many to list, but the best covers are the ones you listen to that transcend the genre of the original.


Name the most underrated artist in the music industry

R P Junior as Raydio.

Introducing: The Channel Drifters

tcd-1

Exploring New York based quartet The Channel Drifters’ new self-titled album, one can’t help but grin. Hybridizing the pop and folk genres, Mike Mahony, Nick Barone, Ryan Harden and Melissa Mahony each bring something different to the sonic table, creating undeniable band chemistry and crisp harmonies that could be destined for mainstream radio any day now. It’s obvious the collaborative songwriting process works, with each member putting their individual signature on each track. Cutting across decades, melding 70’s Laurel Canyon era, 90’s Lilith Fair and a tinge of blues rock guitar, places The Channel Drifters in a unique position. Hailing from the Hudson Valley provides rife natural inspiration as guitarist Mike Mahony mentions they’re “about an hour away from NYC, just far enough away to be surrounded by wilderness, and the Appalachian Trail is literally in our backyard.” Being in this type of environment lends itself to seeping into their songwriting. Fellow guitarist Nick Barone also points out the Hudson Valley “is the home of the most notorious outdoor musical festival of all time, Woodstock. As a guitar player, just knowing you live only an hour from where Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana made a stamp on musical history is pretty cool and it provides a certain energy and influence.”

Music initially entered each band member’s lives at different points, from early memories of listening to the radio on car rides with parents as Mike recalls, playing Queen’s “Greatest Hits” on cassette like guitarist Ryan Harden or “singing since talking” like vocalist Melissa Mahony. In fact, Melissa loved musical theater and opera so much, she thought she might pursue a career in either once upon a time. Definitely reflecting her vocal training in the band’s songs, we’re certainly glad there was a change in plans and she also fell in love with the ukulele instead. When considering the band’s musical heroes, several enduring icons come to mind, ranging from Paul McCartney, Kurt Cobain, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, BB King, Damon Albarn, Eric Clapton and Dave Grohl who yielded a pretty incredible WTF moment for Nick who got a chance to speak to him about guitar playing once at a wedding. Along these favorite artist lines, if they could listen to at least five albums for the rest of their lives, classic albums like The Beatles’ “Abbey Road”, The Counting Crows’ “The Desert Life”, Weezer’s “Pinkerton”, John Mayer’s “Continuum”, The Head and The Heart’s self-titled album and Radiohead’s “Kid A” make the cut.

Although these admirable selections remain planted in certain genres, surprises lurk into their personal musical collections. One might find Halsey, Cher, N’Sync, Earth Wind and Fire, The Prodigy or Death which reflect a varied range of tastes. With each band member listening to different styles of music, they influence and learn from one another. Although they’ve just released their debut, new music is already in the works as they’re working on a sophomore effort and have no plans to remain “out of sight”. If they remain focused, there’s no doubt this band is destined to play a large festival “beneath the sun”.
