Introducing: Pablo Embon

posted November 28th, 2016 by Brian Rutherford | Filed under: Introducing | 0

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.

pemecataRead/Listen

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 22nd, 2016 by Carlita | Filed under: Music News | 1

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 2nd, 2016 by Brian Rutherford | Filed under: Introducing | 1

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.
