On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
Richie Auriemma will take your ears on a folk & roots musical tour from his home state of Washington in the Great Northwest that will make your heart cry & sing in equal degrees, particularly on tunes like "Blue Eyes Cryin".

 When he first moved to Olympia in the late '70's, the town was  a Mecca for long-haired hippie types that sang music much like this, often fueled by tons of espresso & other stimulants. So listening to Richie's vocals & lyrics takes me back to much friendlier times; times full of energy & light, as well as "message".

His favorite track for that kind of nostalgia, actually, is "Okay (So Stoned)"... Stratocaster effects, with his vocal somewhat submerged, like if you were in a submarine, you know, will give you that good ol' "contact high" you've been lookin' for ever since the early '90's, when "PC" took over the world & chased all those great street musicians off the street corners"

The Candles
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
The Candles is Josh Lattanzi’s first solo project, encapsulating the varied styles and influences he’s picked up while recording and touring with the likes of Ben Kweller, Albert Hammond, Jr. (The Strokes) and the Lemonheads, to mention just a few.

“Making music with such talented people for so long has been incredibly inspiring. I could keep making albums and touring with these artists who are so damned good at what they do, and I probably will, but it feels like the right time to do something that truly belongs to me,” the multi-instrumentalist says of the inspiration for The Candles’ debut, “Between The Sounds.”

With the first significant free time he had in years, Lattanzi began the process of crafting his debut. From June to October of 2008 he wrote and recorded demos in his New York City apartment. The west coast sounds of the seventies that snaked like a vine from Gram Parsons through Evan Dando and Ryan Adams nestle up nicely to Lattanzi on such tunes as “Let Me Down Easy” and “Between The Sounds” while “Here Or Gone” finds the singer delivering a big “roll down the car windows” chorus that would make Tom Petty smile.

The single "Here or Gone" is available on iTunes now. The full length album "Between The Sounds" is available now.


Clever Things

With over 50 live performances under their belts, The Cranks write and perform poppy, indie alt-rock like pro's - and they're barely in high school. Greg and Connor deliver a driving rhythm and Haley's bright, clear vocals are beyond her age, their writing far more mature than expected for a teenage band. As a 3-piece, their sound is dynamic and open, punchy and powerful. As a judge on Community Auditions Star of the Day in Feb ’10, Joyce Kulhawik (arts and entertainment anchor for Boston’s WBZ-TV News) called Haley a “triple threat” of great vocals, song writing and guitar playing.

"Showing much more poise than your average fourteen and fifteen-year olds, The Cranks write upbeat pop tunes with an alternative twist...The possibilities buzz in and around lead vocalist Haley Gowland who has a voice that fits in well with 1990's acts like Belly and Throwing Muses." - Wildy's World Blog 6/2010.

So I've had a determination to focus on my artistry first."

At 14, she began to take piano lessons, influenced by her internationally famous father, singer and keyboardist Johnny Galan, and at 15, Galan frequented New York City to study acting.

Meanwhile, she was writing poetry (which she began to do at a young age), storing away her lyrical murmurings and rhythms for future songs. At 18, Galan began to professionally record her own original songs, putting her creativity and musical ear to use. Inheriting the fierce musical talent that came down through her bloodline, two of Galan's strongest influences are her grandfather, Nando Galan, one of the most popular Hispanic saxophonists known today and her father, Johnny Galan, who taught her almost everything she knows.

Extremely individual and unique, Galan has been performing her particular style of dance/pop music for thrilled New York audiences, while choreographing, dancing and singing with her team of backup dancers. The musical knowing she received from her family and the opportunity to create an electric intimacy with her audiences are Galan's most treasured gifts.

With an already established loyal legion of fans, Macgyver Knife's ambitions lie on a national and perhaps even an international stage, sharing their feel-good indie rock, that's built on rolling-riffs and foot-tapping drum and bass, with the world.

Her life stood on a knives blade for a few deadly months but it was not to be the end.Her operation and recovery was a miracle, though there were many grueling months ahead, Anna-Christina didn't take advantage of her bed rest but instead schemed and plotted her "spectacular comeback".

No words could describe her hardship and pure determination to return to music and by July 2006 she was back with a vengeance clawing out from the pit of despair and defying all odds, she made an astonishing comeback. She proved what a courageous little being she is. Not only was it a return to stage and a conquering of many obstacles driven by an extremely determined mind but something evidently had changed in the charismatic singer. Her spirit showed that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel and her light was music.

Mikey's Imaginary Friends
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
Mikey's Imaginary Friends is a psychedeletronic art rock band influenced by artists such as Jimi Hendrix Experience, Harvey Danger, Primitive Radio Gods, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Their anthemic pop melodies and colorful instrumentals coincide with ironic (albeit honest) lyrics, reminiscent of "true" punk bands. The music of Mikey's Imaginary Friends is only a portion of their art. Their live performance includes a multi-media digital projection of images and video footage to further entrance the flood of dancers--Mikey included. The energy of their shows is never replicated, but they bring a fresh wave of passion with each new set.

“...Unique lyrics complimented the melodic uplifting beats and the crowd was riveted and glued to his every move. That is no bull shit.”
   -Ben Webster, Chicago Examiner

“The delicacy of each track is juxtaposed with raw anger and nostalgic dialogue that sings from the lost direction of growing up...”
   -Peter Jostrand, The Vice

“...Uncoventional. Its like Mars Volta on Vicodin.”
   -Ben Webster, Chicago Examiner


Abe Millett
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes

Abe is currently the bassist for Third Eye Blind as well as a well-established solo singer/writer & piano player. His multi-instrumentalist talent is clear on his new song, Trains, from Abe's  debut album titled I Need You. His album will be dropping in late June on iTunes.

Says Millett, "I like music with the human touch. As much as new pop music can be catchy and be a formula that an artist can follow to insure some success - it's souless."

"Give me something played and sang by a person and not manipulated in a music editing program - that's not art or even real music to me - that's engineering! Maybe it's cool, but it's still engineering. I want music."

"I've been playing rock bass since I saw Oasis on MTV. But I have always been a musician. I've always been a writer and always been a singer...."


Kathleen Montaigue
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
Kathleen Montaigue has been singing and performing since she was 8 years old in her Band, "Moontagu", consisting of her two brothers and father. She is now 19 (2010) and has become a force in the "singer/songwriter" genre. Kathleen is a guitarist and regularly teaches guitar to young people in her area of Wales.

Born in Australia, Kathleen grew up wild and free on the family farm in the North East of the state of New South Wales in the sub-tropics. She and her two brothers were home-schooled with the emphasis upon all aspects of music. Her Father, Erle had been a musician all of his life with several hit records to his name in Australia. Her Mother, Sandra is also a musician so the whole atmosphere was steeped in music, writing music and music production.
In 2003, the Montaigue family with their two dogs and publishing business, moved to Wales in the UK to continue with the music in the UK.
Kathleen works hard at several normal jobs in her local village in Wales in order to support herself. She then comes home and writes music or practices her singing and guitar, then goes out at night with her band to perform. So she is doing the "hard yards" the right way.

We are currently cataloguing all of Kathleen's songs at Moontagu Recording studio and her first solo CD Album "Green & Gold" is almost completed. Her songs are of the "Rock/Country" genre with some "Acoustic". Her voice suits the Rock Genre, however, she also has the ability to sing very gentle and melodic acoustic songs with only two guitars. Her songs are heartfelt with lyrics that actually mean something! Her melodies also come from the heart and they ARE melodies.

Kathleen continues to write from the heart and so far she has a catalogue of around 30 songs ready for production. Combine those with the catalogue of songs written by other members of Moontagu and she has an almost unlimited supply of solid potential hit records as well as quality album tracks.


The Neon Graveyard
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
The Neon Graveyard are a new Indie Rock n Roll five piece from London. Formed in 2010 when Gog, Bungle, John and Simon - formerly 4/5 of punk band Johnny Deptford - teamed up with new front man Tony.

They recorded their five track EP in December 2010 at Assault & Battery II Studios in London. This was drummer Simon's swan song and he left the band and moved to France. Matt Brandon recently joined on drums to complete the current line up. You can't quite pick their sound. It stirs memories of bands and genres spanning the last four decades but they don't sound like any one. Their punk influences still cut through giving a simple, raw edginess to the polished, catchy tunes. It's all very English; or is it?"



On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
Paradox were formed in 1996 by brothers Pete Mac and Mike Mac in Cork, Ireland. Mike the older brother grew up listening to Guns n’ Roses, Metallica, the whole ...80’s metal phase and started playing guitar at an early age before switching to drums a few years before the band formed. 'Appetite for Destruction' was the album that turned Mike onto Music and Rock n 'Roll at the age of 8 and opened the doors to many more bands of that era. By the time Pete discovered music it was 1991 and the whole Alternative scene just started to take off.

'Corporate Pollution' is the third Paradox studio album displaying the bands most powerful sound to date. 11 songs were recorded and mixed in 9 days @ Data Recording Studios in County Kerry, Ireland. Just like the previous two Paradox albums brothers Pete and Mike Mac play all instruments. Pete plays all guitars, bass, vocals while Mike plays all drums, piano and vocal harmonies. They also co/produce the album. A few of the songs appeared as acoustic tracks on the Pete Mac solo album 'In Limbo' in 2009 (Emptiness, Bury the World, Serenity) but were re-recorded with drums and a full band sound for this album.

'Corporate Pollution' is the bands biggest loudest sound yet.

the perms
The Perms
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
MThe Perms’ 5th studio album "Sofia Nights" is special. In an industry where bands are lucky to last past their first single, this group has stood the test of time and continued to find success in creating stick-in-your-head songs. Their friendship and shared passion for making music that matters has been the motivation that drives this band forward.

When The Perms started writing for the new album, it became clear that the band wanted to push the boundaries of their songwriting while keeping the hooks and energy that have created their own sound. There was a renewed sense of freedom and an “anything goes” mentality. The only rule was that the song was most important. If an idea worked, it was embraced. If it didn’t, the band quickly moved on. The band thrived in this creative atmosphere and the results were 10 fresh tracks that showcased the group’s ability to write harder-edged, hook-filled songs that effectively transfer over to their energetic live performances.

The Perms are an alt-rock trio from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The group is made up of Shane Smith (bass/vox),
Chad Smith (guitar, vox), and John Huver (drums). The band formed in 1998 and has released four albums prior
to Sofia Nights – Keeps You Up When You're Down (2009), Better Days (2005), Clark Drive (2002), and Tight Perm (1998).


Prospect Hill
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
Prospect Hill released their first full length album titled “Out of The Ashes” in 2006. While the record generated some good buzz, ultimately their sound wasn’t quite where they wanted it to be.

As 2007 came around, so did a new lead singer. With the addition of Adam Fithian, Prospect Hill literally found the voice they had been looking for. With all the key players in place, the band began the process of putting a fresh demo together. With the release of a four track demo featuring newly penned tracks “Breakdown,” “Panacea,” “S.O.E.” and “Walk Home,” Prospect Hill took to the road with their electric live shows, touring relentlessly up and down the east coast, building a bigger and stronger fan base with each stop. As 2007 continued on, the process of recording their new album began to take shape.

Touring along such big name acts as Powerman5000 and Hinder, Prospect Hill dazzles audiences with their hard hitting new sound. In May of 2008, Prospect Hill released “For the Lovers, the Haters and the Dead.” The album featured Godsmack’s own Tony Rombola on the track “S.O.E.” The radio ready “Breakdown,” which also appeared on the demo released a year earlier was re-produced by renowned producer Anthony J Resta, whose previous credits include acts such as Collective Soul, Duran Duran and Elton John.

Genya Ravan
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes

“I Won’t Cry Anymore” the new single on Bongo Boy Records, written and produced by Gar Francis, unleashes a powerhouse with the vocal dominance of New York City icon Genya Ravan.

For those of you who don’t know, Genya lead the successful all girl group Goldie and the Gingerbreads in 1962 and was signed by Atlantic boss Ahmet Ertegun. A strong woman with a powerful voice she lead the horn based rock/fusion band Ten Wheel Drive in 1969. With numerous albums and singles to her name, she is still a major force to be reckoned with. “I Won’t Cry Anymore” recaptures that authentic R&B of yesteryear and gives the listener a ringside seat to the evolution of a sophisticated women’s strengths and emotions.

This new release by writer/producer Gar Francis is a sonically polished, deceptively effortless and relentless tune that is everything we've come to expect from his pen. Indeed, this is as close as we may get today to a true emotional blending by a talented songwriter and a legendary singer. “I Won’t Cry Anymore” celebrates liberation on all fronts with lead and background vocals from the pipes known as Genya, instantly recognizable guitar chunks & keyboards by Gar, smooth as dark chocolate bass by Danny Caruso, and precision drumming by rhythm king Bobby Chen. This third Bongo Boy release is again mixed by the Gar Francis/Kurt Reil team at the House of Vibes in Highland Park NJ and mastered by our favorite drumming Grip Weed. “I Won’t Cry Anymore” is available as a digital download at CD Baby, iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, etc.

Rydell Reveen
Rydell Reveen
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes

Rydell Reveen started his music business perseverance at the age of 16 years old, and he first started off with the percussion instrument playing to famous drummers like NIEL PEART , BILL BRUFFURD . PHILL COLLINS, and many more progressive rock music drummers back in the 80,s when the British invasion came around in the music industry. Rydell Reveen was born and raised in Miami Florida and now resides in Pembroke Pines Florida and has lived in Florida for much of his entire life. There came a time when Rydell Reveen wanted to write lyrics for the band but the band members did not take it to lightly that a drummer would have control of copyrights. But Rydell Reveen aspired to be more than what the band wanna be,s thought of him.

He then, after so many years of drumming, took up basic music theory classes in college and learned his lines and spaces as well as his treble clef and bass clef in one semester of class, as well as his time signatures. Rydell Reveen never reached a degree, but what he has in his mind and heart where yet to be revealed. It took him 19 years to develop his own style of composing music, after all it,s not what you do but how you do it, and that is exactly what Rydell Reveen had in mind. After many years of struggling with personal issues he finally reached his peak of control with music. Since Rydell Reveen always had a piano in his home from a very early age and the support of his dear mother for nearly all his life, he decided to stick to the electronic key board synthesizer, which by the the way Rydell Reveen also plays the guitar but did not start with the guitar from the get go.

Rydell Reveen published two NEW AGE albums in the year 2001 { Forgotten Paradise and Heart of the sunrise} when the internet was booming. Rydell Reveen would always stick by the classical music ambient feel of music because he always liked the spacey feel of things to come in the universe. But since Rydell Reveen was a percussionist he still liked though and heavy perpetual rhythmical patterns in his music. So up until this day Rydell Reveen has been writing songs with intense dynamic structures in them.

On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
On a cold and rainy night, on what seemed to be normal February evening, Michael Spaulding closed his eyes and fell asleep. After a very long, painful, and fitful sleep he woke with visions of the dark days of his past, broken memories of drug addiction, parental loss, and the pains of love and love lost. With these visions and memories fresh in his mind he began sculpting lyrics and music, which would turn into his debut solo EP "From Then To Now," on which Michael sang and played every instrument, with the exception of the drums, which were played by his producer Joe Merrick of Guilty Dog Studios.

With this album being his solo and vocal debut (having played guitar in the past for local Boston rock band Synj, along with many others) Michael’s vision of musical greatness became, to him, a more possible reality. After the release of “From Then To Now” Michael gathered an amazing collection of musicians to form a live band consisting of drummer Chris Tagliaferro, bassist Jay Dwire, and guitarists Rich Spates and Josh Goodno.

In less than 12 months from bands debut live show (which was to a sold out crowd) the now complete “Spaulding” has already accomplished much more than would normally ever be expected from a new band after only a year. Some of the highlights have been opening for national bands that include 3 Doors Down, Sevendust, Prong, Soulfly, Nonpoint, Puddle of Mudd, and Cold. Along with these live accomplishments,Spaulding has been featured on some of the most popular radio stations throughout New England, including 107.3 WAAF and Kiss 108, among many various local and college radio stations.

What started out as just a dream for Michael Spaulding has turned into what some critics in New England have called "The next Boston band to explode in the national scene." Now with a complete line-up, and the will to succeed at all costs, SPAULDING is determined to make it to the top!

Tasting Grace
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes

Fans of Evanescence and Linkin Park will notice a similar sound resonating from Tasting Grace. With a twisted combination of No Doubt and P!NK’s stage persona matched with a Madonna-like sensuality and grit, the dynamic of this group is palpable. Tasting Grace is fronted by singer/songwriter Jenna "Grace" Milano, “the hot blonde with a very strong and powerful voice that can definitely hold a candle to Evanescence singer Amy Lee,” according to Aquarian Weekly. Milano’s signature look shines through in vibrant stage attire, slinky dance moves, and a “rocker chick meets pop princess” attitude.

>From Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston and Bon Jovi to the new teen sensations The Jonas Brothers, New Jersey has been giving birth to one success story after another. Tasting Grace is especially grateful to have started out with a performance at the same place The Boss made famous; the band headlined one of their very first shows at the renowned Stone Pony in Asbury Park. The Pony is best known for kick-starting the careers of music icon Bruce Springsteen and, more recently, the pop-rock sensation My Chemical Romance.

“There’s something magical about the music of Asbury Park, especially at the Stone Pony,” said Milano. “I realized how special our performance was when we took the stage that night. To play inside the four walls that Springsteen made famous is an honor.”

Tasting Grace recently shared a spread in Steppin’ Out Magazine with Courtney Love, Snoop Dogg, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. "If you haven't seen this band you're missing out!" said celebrity journalist Chaunce Hayden. Tasting Grace has been featured on popular music websites including, a digital art district founded by System of a Down's bass player Shavo Odadjian, and, where their track “Lighting Candles in the Rain” was in rotation for several weeks.

Two Earth Hours was founded by Scott Jackson, a music student under the tutelage of his songwriting teacher David Randle. Drawing influence and inspiration from Third Eye Blind, Scott began writing lyrics and music. He then took the musical portions of the songs to David whom he utilized as co-writer and producer. Using his keen ability to improve songs while still keeping his students’ original visions, David molded the songs into the versions that you now hear.

Scott and David then recruited the top musical talents in their hometown of San Diego (including Skelpin’ frontman Tim Foley on vocals) and recorded "About Anya". The end result is a debut perfectly in tune with Scott's original vision, even yielding comparisons in sound to Scott's original source of inspiration: Third Eye Blind (Troubadour, November 2009). Furthermore, the combination of thoughtful lyrics, straightforward yet unique instrumental flourishes and Foley's excellent vocals yielded this same write-up to declare Two Earth Hours "a new music scene in the making."

Van Ghost
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
For nearly a decade Michael Harrison Berg of Van Ghost was a behind the scenes type of guy. Having poured his energy into his ventures as a concert promoter and band manager, little was left over for personal creative endeavors.

That all changed in 2007 when Berg’s close friends encouraged him to revisit the acoustic guitar he put down in his younger days and asked him to perform a song at their wedding. Melding the inspiration from the many talented bands he has worked with and his own passion for music, the singer returned to his roots. He began writing songs, drawing from his life experiences, creating a heartfelt and staggeringly honest perspective. After building up a solid repertoire of poppy folk ballads, gritty Americana tunes and classic rock laced jams, Berg called on his dear friend Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), and they collectively assembled an all-star cast of musicians and named the project Van Ghost.

With an exquisite 5 piece band flavored with psychedelic guitars, an earth shattering rhythm section, & haunting guy/girl harmonies, the band played it’s debut show before a packed audience at Chicago’s revered Metro in January 2008. It was an auspicious beginning for one of world’s most promising new acts.

Following up their debut record, “Melodies For Lovers”, on Split Red Records, the band headed down to Nashville, TN to begin the tracking of their next release “The Domino Effect” for Dustimmoff Records (a start up label with Split Red owner Timm Martin & 2009 Grammy winning Producer/Engineer/Mixer Justin Niebank). With Justin Niebank at the helm the bands sound continues to develop and expand. Berg has established that he is as comfortable operating under the spotlight as he is behind the curtain. With Van Ghost, he sets out to inspire music fans the same as other artists have inspired him – one song at a time.

Teddy Woodward
On-Air Band/Artist: Yes
Teddy is a singer songwriter from Franklin, Tennessee, right outside of Nashville. He grew up in Baltimore, spent time in L.A., and eventually ended up in Nashville. After a few years in Nashville, he got a job working for legendary record producer "Cowboy" Jack Clement. Hanging around at Cowboys' were people like Chet Atkins, Johnny Cash, John Hartford, and a who's who of great Nashville musicians.
While he has had a few minor cuts, the best known song of his was done at the end of a session in Nashville. The musicians (all well known) had enjoyed his songs, and wanted to do another, even though the time they were paid for was LONG since up.

They decided on a song called "I'm Not a Criminal", a comment on America's marijuana laws. Apparently, the Almighty wanted the song to be, bcause they NAILED it on the first take! Johnny Neel and Kenny Malone, Nashville legends, did a few overdubs, and the strange odyssey of "I'm Not a Criminal" began. It was the early years of the internet, and the song got around to activists, and we were invited to play Hemp-Aid 2000 at Rainbow Farm in Vandalia, Michigan. A year and a few months later, the owners of Rainbow Farm were dead, murdered by the FBI and the Michigan state police. There has since been an article in Playboy about the shooting, and a book has been written aout it.

At this point, ESPECIALLY to any musicians reading this, these were GREAT GUYS. The first time we played there, they paid us $1300.00 EXTRA. When was the last time MOST of you had anybody pay you MORE than they owed you. It was just one of MANY injustices our government inflicts on innocent people all the time.
The song was then included on a CD from, their best of the best from around the world of marijuana related music. Teddy continues to play, write, and record and pitch his songs, as well as play gigs from time to time.
