  • Interview with March to May Folk Duo from seattle

    in Radio

    When is the right time to take a chance? Who are the right people? What are the right conditions? Neither Darren nor Beth re...alized the musical potential they had when they first met in December 2012. It took several chance encounters -- passing vocal harmonies on a trip to the coast with friends, tentative instrumental work one cold winter evening, comments here and there on lyrics and melody -- before the spark hit. But when it did, it didn't take long for them to catch fire. After playing over 50 shows in less than two years, they are releasing their debut album, The Water's Edge, in April 2015. http://www.marchtomay.com


    March to May formed in the Spring of 2013 as a collaboration between singer/songwriters Darren Guyaz and Beth Wesche. Overla...ying Celtic folk harp, guitar & keyboards with rich vocal harmonies, they sing deeply relatable stories of every day life and what it means to love, to live, and to reach beyond what seems possible. They sing from the heart, and carry the listener to a place within their own imagination, their own story.

    LIVE:Chesapeake Bay Reggae Fest Pre show- International Stars Tuff Lion & IBA

    in Music

    A veteran of countless live performances and tours as a bandleader or sideman over his long career, Tuff Lion’s recording presence has “finally” begun to blossom with the access that home recording studio systems afford the masses today. Undeniably, he has risen from near obscurity to many V. I. producers’ “A” list. You may also see his name credited on some recordings to performances on other instruments such as, bass, keyboards, organ, drums and some backing vocals. This is indicative of the depth of his musical scope. “I-Man play instruments for the sake of music, not the other way” says the graciously humble Tuff Lion, noting that he “really only practices” on the guitar.
    Iba (pronounced: 'Eye-bah') was born Charles "Chucky" Encarnacion on May 7, 1970 on the island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. As the son of a musician, Iba was indoctrinated into music at a very young age and his passion for knowledge led him to embrace the teachings of Rastafari in his formative years. Over time and thru much diligence, Iba became lead singer of St. Croix's Front Line Reggae Band and quickly became one of St. Croix's celebrated singers.   In 1995, life and mother nature (Hurricane Marilyn) intervened in this burgeoning career and Iba relocated to Connecticut, USA. In Connecticut, Iba kept at his passion by fronting the Survivor's Reggae Band for the next 3 years.

    James Mcfadden of LA Rock band Crack in the Shell

    in Rock Music

    Tonight, Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes Crack in Shell's James McFadden to the show.



    www.crackintheshell.com


    Crack in the Shell, founded by James McFadden (Bass/Keyboards) and Daniel Alan (Vocals) in 2010, cannot be pigeonholed into just one musical category. CITS show variety both musically and vocally, ranging from punk to rock to psychedelic in style. Comprised of veteran players from TN. to CA. to Lebanon, the band's sound is as diverse as their background.   


    CITS have been making a name for themselves, and have played as direct support for The Gin Blossoms, Winery Dogs, Don Dokken, Bret Michaels, Geoff Tate, Lou Gramm, and more.  


    Crack in the Shell are currently putting the final touches on their video for “After Life,” and finalizing their third release ‘I Am Alive.’
