As we approach the end of January, that means only one thing to a music vendor, biz professional or musician- The NAMM Show! Thousands eager to avoid snow and escape to sunny Southern California (or sit in traffic trying to get there if you live in LA or SD) descended upon the Anaheim Convention Center in search of fun, networking and ware sampling last weekend. Back for my second year, I made sure my agenda for each day included poking and prodding of new products, award ceremonies and checking out acts in the hotel lobbies of two adjacent hotels, filled with musicians of different genres playing until midnight.

Interview: Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp

posted January 26th, 2015 by Carlita | Filed under: Editorial, Interviews, Live Show Reviews | 0


Ahh the 80’s. The beloved era of memorable fashion choices, Flock of Seagulls haircuts and synth and saxophone filled interludes. When looking back on the music of the decade, it’s no doubt Spandau Ballet left an unforgettable mark in music history with their brand of soul-tinged new wave pop. In a list of bands I wished would tour again, they’d definitely be up there. Well, Virginia, wishes do come true as Spandau Ballet began hitting the U.S. road for the first time in 30 years. For anyone that checked out their Yahoo Live stream of the concert in LA last night, viewers saw genuine excitement and appreciation to be back onstage and an unspoken familiarity that comes with being chums and bandmates for over 35 years. The set list not only included classics but a few new songs found on their greatest hits ‘The Story – The Very Best of Spandau Ballet’ newly released compilation record.

Ash 1

You know when you’re in a horrible mood and you come across a song that makes you forget about all the BS for a few min? In such a scenario recently, enter rising artist Ash.’s latest EP title track, “Perfect”. Sharing stages with Janelle Monáe, singing in her dynamic backing band, Cleveland born ATL-based ASH brought some sunshine to my day and prepares to release her EP in February. Courageous enough to leave the cushy safety of a public sector DC Capitol Hill job to follow her calling, her journey into music’s been an interesting one.

Introducing: The Grey Agents

18105classifiedmisnformationClick here for Jason Hillenburg’s five star review of “Classified Misinformation”

Sometimes life just happens. The history books of popular music are filled with ribald tales of twenty-something’s who formed bands, left smoking craters of motels in their wake, and rocketed to some sort of, usually fleeting, success. There are other stories.

Popular music history seldom mentions the artists who, for one reason or another, answer the call of real life and leave dreams of a musical career behind. For every young, strutting rock star, you’ll find hundreds of men and women with greater or equal talent who stepped away. Then, there are stories about some who have re-entered the fray with spectacular results and The Grey Agents are one. Read more…

Interview: Cooper Phillip

posted January 15th, 2015 by Carlita | Filed under: Music News | 0


Encountering Cooper Phillip’s beautifully simple “Silence” video, raw talent immediately hit my ears and made it clear the sky’s the limit for this Russian rising star. Listening to her impressive pipes, her voice, which won singing competitions at 11 years old, easily elevates her above the rest of aspiring sirens. Not only gifted vocally, she learned classical piano and harp, being raised in a family of accomplished classical musicians. Making the courageous decision to follow her dreams thousands of miles away from her homeland, she made her way to NY and LA, with not much else besides perseverance and a will to succeed.
