Rooftop Revolutionaries are a modern hard rock band from Los Angeles fronted by opera-trained rocker Eleanor Goldfield.  They have stood out in the Southern California underground rock scene by  expressing political and social views in their songs, blending a message with a heavy rock sound similar to that of Alice in Chains. Rooftop Revolutionaries have played Los Angeles venues such as The House of Blues Sunset Strip, The Roxy, Viper Room and the Troubador. They released their debut album this summer, Resolute, to rave reviews. Best of all Eleanor joins us Friday.

In an industry saturated with fly-by-night singles, auto-tune pop, and packaged artist-development, Alex Nester brings back the art of music-making in a collection of original music chronicling her trials and letdowns with the state of music business today and her bout with cancer as a teenager. A life of trial and triumph has  shaped her unique sound filled with messages of love, faith, positivity, and healing while channeling the retro soul artists of the 60’s and 70’s. Her resume includes 12 albums, countless jingles, and over 25 theatrical productions, as well as working with established musicians such as Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, The Fifth Dimension, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. We are so looking forward to talking with Alex this Friday at 2:30 pm ET.
