Reuben and the Dark lead off the show at 2:05 pm ET with their new single "Rolling Stone". Reuben and the Dark is the newest project from Calgary's Reuben Bullock and which I cxaught at a club in LA and had to have on the show. Fresh off the release of his second solo album, Bullock has formed a band of some of Alberta's finest musicians, quickly building a reputation as a killer live band. Their soaring four-part vocal harmonies achieve epic heights woven into hammering beats, always leaving crowds hungry for more. At the core of all this are Bullock's songs, which manage to achieve a balance between seemingly disparate elements: the introspective with the anthemic, and the feat of sounding simultaneously ancient and uniquely contemporary.
Irene Diaz returns to Music Friday at 2:30 pm ET with her unique, aching blues and ukelele-backed pop rock. She will also talk with us about the Womyn of Color Conference she is a participant in at Cal State Univesity.Born in the heart of Los Angeles, Irene Diaz has emerged as an independent artist with a tremendous sound and a huge future. A singer/songwriter who plays both guitar and piano, accompanied by her very talented collaborator Carolyn Cardoza,Irene is at home in a recording studio, a showcse or a big hall - she maintains the same intimacy with her audience through a very personal voice. Her initial exposure to music came at a young age, at only 15 years old she developed her own writing/playing style that sets her apart now at 25. We are delighted she can take a break to talk with us.
