Dublin-native Mark Geary is a celebrated musician who began his career more than 20 years ago. In 1992, Mark bought a one-way ticket to New York City and spent several years playing the local circuit in the East Village which included numerous appearances at the acclaimed Sin-é cafe with other upcoming artists including friend Jeff Buckley. Mark is described as a "quintessential singer-songwriter" and his records have been hailed as encapsulating both boisterous joy and gentle, delicate moments that endear themselves to the listener and evoke comparisons to artists such as Van Morrison, John Lennon, Elliot Smith and Richard Thompson. His body of work includes 4 studio albums, 2 live recordings and collaborations with a number of artists including the release in 2013 of a charity version of his song 'Christmas Biscuits' with friend Glen Hansard in aid of St Vincent De Paul, in Ireland. Mark has also lent his talents to the visual arts scoring several films including “Loggerheads” (2005), “Steel City” (2006) and TriBeCa Film Festival “Sons of Perdition” (2010). Touring and performing are Mark's lifeblood and passion, and his finely crafted songs and charismatic storytelling provide his audience with a unique experience on every occasion. Over the last 20 years Mark has toured all over Europe, US & Australia, and has shared the stage with The Swell Season, Glen Hansard, The Frames, Josh Ritter, Bell X1, Coldplay, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders & Joe Strummer. Mark has recently competed tours in Switzerland and Germany, including a headline spot on the critically acclaimed “Songs from Ireland: Old and New” tour. Dates in Switzerland, Ireland and New York are also planned in which Mark will be road testing songs from his forthcoming 5th album, released in Autumn 2015.?
It's Robert Cooper hosting tonight folks! And toniight he is going to be talking one of his favorite doom metal albums, Woods Of Ypres "Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light." Mark takes the night off, however, Coop won't go it alone as he picks up a wandering MHOD faithful along the side of the road... Jesse Starcher. Join us as we talk, religion, spirituality, death, and other topics (that last part is guaranteed).

Sirgun Kaur is an Arizona-based sacred chantress who is also an avid blogger and Kundalini Yoga instructor. There has never been any question in Sirgun Kaur's mind what she should do "when she grew up." From collecting nursery rhymes as an infant, to sharing her adolescent woes with a sympathetic piano, or touring the United States as a singer-songwriter in her early 20s, music has always been an anchor in Sirgun's life. It was not until she discovered Kundalini Yoga, chanting, and mantra, however, that she understood the transformative and healing potential of music. In a word: magical! Since then, Sirgun has released four albums of sacred chants: Reclaim Your Happiness, Dayaal, The Cosmic Gift, and The Music Within.
Her latest album, Reclaim Your Happiness, was released through Spirit Voyage as part of their Meditations for Transformation series. Sirgun says that her childhood of constant travel, living as an expat in France, has taught her abundant gratitude for her voice. Her voice has received international recognition at White Tantric Yoga events, where her song "Bliss" was selected as the soundtrack to the KRI promotional DVD "Facets of the Master," played at each break.

Keith Handy has been composing, arranging, performing, recording, and producing original music since his childhood in the early 1980s, primarily, but not exclusively, in the style of progressive or "art" rock, including several concept albums and a rock opera.
Early on, he functioned primarily as keyboard player and support vocalist for various original and cover bands, but soon decided it was more important to focus on continued artistic growth than to navigate the internal politics of band membership. He started acquiring recording gear, learning the guitar, and going ever deeper with the crafts of arrangement and production.
In line with Keith's passion for the continual study of the creative process in all forms, he has since branched out into improv comedy (incorporating copious amounts of improvised music), computer art, programming in C++ for generative art and signal processing, puppetry and puppet making, and video editing.
Still a studio hermit, his long term goal is to make the bulk of his work available as a "box set" type multimedia package, as well as have a chunk of that collection visually interpreted as video and theatre.
When not immersed in all this complicated stuff, he is happy to drink a beer or two and play a few old songs on an acoustic guitar at your backyard fire.

Sly and the Family Stone was an American band from San Francisco. Active from 1967 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of soul, funk, and psychedelic music. Headed by singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone, and containing several of his family members and friends, the band was the first major American rock band to have an "integrated, multi-gender" lineup.
Brothers Sly Stone and singer/guitarist Freddie Stone combined their bands (Sly & the Stoners and Freddie & the Stone Souls) in 1967. Sly and Freddie Stone, trumpeter Cynthia Robinson, drummer Gregg Errico, saxophonist Jerry Martini, and bassist Larry Graham comprised the original lineup; Sly and Freddie's sister, singer/keyboardist Rose Stone, joined within a year. They recorded five Billboard Hot 100 hits which reached the top 10, and four ground-breaking albums, which greatly influenced the sound of American pop, soul, R&B, funk, and hip hop music. In the preface of his 1998 book For the Record: Sly and the Family Stone: An Oral History, Joel Selvin sums up the importance of Sly and the Family Stone's influence on African American music by stating "there are two typesof black music: black music before Sly Stone, and black music after Sly Stone".

(Italian American promotes) Black Sabbath are an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward. The band have since experienced multiple line-up changes, with guitarist Iommi being the only constant presence in the band through the years. Despite an association with these two themes, Black Sabbath also composed songs dealing with social instability, political corruption, the dangers of drug abuse and apocalyptic prophecies of the horrors of war.
