Georgia rap legend Sonny Spoon is an extremely diverse artist with many talents. Born and raised in the city of Macon, Sonny Spoon has worked diligently to make a name for himself and put his city on the map. His career began at the tender age of 14 when he started performing at local talent shows and gaining the confidence of his peers and elders as a creative story teller through music. His lyrics reflect the pain of young black males being raised in the deep south and the trials they endure while seeking to maintain a positive perspective and become successful. No stranger to the streets, Sonny’s music truly imitates the life he lives.
As an independent artist Sonny has recorded a total of nine albums and has collaborated with hip hop heavy weights such as T.I., Cee-lo Green, Field Mob, 8-Ball & MJG, Bun-B and Young Jeezy. He is also globally known for his hit single "The Dirty Bird," written for the Atlanta Falcons during their Super Bowl run in 1998. His new album Back to Work was released in 2011.
Sonny Spoon was well on his way to stardom when his career was suddenly derailed because of his incarceration for narcotics and weapons possession in 2003. Upon his release from the federal prison system, Sonny Spoon has been on a mission to ensure that other young people are aware of the consequences of bad decision making. He has worked diligently with public schools, non-profit organizations and many independent agencies that would allow him to share his testimony as a deterrent for at risk youth.
Camille Thurman was born in St. Albans, NY. She is a saxophonist, flutist, vocalist, composer, and educator. Her lush, velvety, rich, warm sound on tenor saxophone has been compared to tenor greats Gene Ammons, Dexter Gordon and Lester Young. Camille’s ability to sing four octaves and perform vocalese greatly influences audiences reminiscent of Minnie Riperton, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. Her ability to take the sounds evocative of yesteryear’s legends and creatively pair them with the nuances, edge ad freshness of today’s music not only expanded the possibilities of jazz in the the upcoming generation but gained her the respect of audiences in Israel, Switzerland, and around the world.

With a music career that has spanned 40 years, Murray McLauchlan writes and performs songs that capture slices of life and the human experience in his songs. From "Farmer's Song" to "Down By The Henry Moore" to "Whispering Rain", you'll find yourself transported into the scenes he's capturing with his voice, melodies and lyrics. Each of those songs has received a SOCAN Classic Music Award.
Born in Scotland, Murray came to Canada when he was five years old. At 17, he began playing at coffeehouses in Toronto's Yorkville area and later attended Central Tech as an art student before deciding to become a full-time musician.
Murray has eighteen albums of songs to his credit and has won eleven JUNO awards as well as RPM Big Country and Toronto Music awards. In 1993, he received The Order Of Canada. He was the host of the national CBC radio program Swinging on a Star for five years. With over a quarter of a million listeners every Saturday, this show focused attention on the artistry of distinguished and famous writers as well as the new and upcoming.
Tune in to hear this Canadian music legend talk about his songs and share them with us.
This is the first time that I could actually list an artist - from A to Z - that Winston Byrd has had in his circle. He has played trumpet for over two decades with the best of the best...ready for a taste of that alphabetized list? Abbey Lincoln/Blood, Sweat & Tears/Chaka Khan/Dells/Ellington's Orchestra/Fathead Newman/Grateful Dead/Horn (as in Shirley)/ I - as in Will.I.Am - whew! It goes ON and on!
Winston hails from Wilmington, Delaware - so he heard the music of the extended Philadelphia region, as well as New Jersey and New York. What steered him in his musical journey, initially, was feeling the sound of Maynard Ferguson (in seventh grade!) - then seeing Dizzy Gillespie with Jon Faddis on the 1986 Grammy telecast. Jon actually became a mentor - and introduced our guest to some pivotal admirers who would pave the way for more awesome associations. And SO much work! Music that was developed "on the road" as opposed to what could have been learned in the classroom. Part of that amazing journey revolves around the artistry that Winston has developed with big bands. Orchestras. He loves ALL of it, though. Way beyond HYBRID, this one! LOL! This is Multiple Genre Magic that Winston Byrd has cultivated.
Two albums to his credit - and we'll hear tracks from both. "Soul Searchin'" and "The Tao of Pooh" bring to your ears a full fruition of all that expertise he has brought to performances and projects by other artists. If you do the research, you'll see one rave review after another from fans of trumpet who cannot believe what they're hearing. Winston Byrd is THAT good :)
What we'll have for you is superb music and conversation - and a special July 4th show. Gather friends and join us!
Most of us have heard 90s rapper, KRS-One, talk about how far hip-hop has plummeted down the music totem poll. We have heard similar sermons from other older rappers as well. But as far as new main-stream hip-hop artists are concerned, the buck mainly stops at T.I. There simply aren’t many others. However, in a recent interview with The Daily Beast, platinum recording artist, Cee-lo shared his thoughts.
Here’s what he said:
We don’t judge, but we acknowledge that acting and performing music are very kindred spirits. You write something down, go into a recording booth, and reenact the emotion onstage. At one point in time, there was a code of conduct: creed and credential. And I’ve said this before on Twitter, but hip-hop was once an Ivy League institution, and now it’s become a community college—you don’t need any qualifications to come on in. And, quite frankly, it can be a little embellished-upon. There’s a low entry level, and it’s become monotonous and congested. All you need to do is be able to rhyme “cat” and “hat,” and you can become an MC. But executives have a lot to do with the larger agenda to emasculate and colonize.In a recent interview with MTV’s RapFix Live, hardened hip hop hotshot Busta Rhymes spoke about the current illuminati obsession in hip hop and how he thinks it is now spiralling out of control. Explaining how he has “always been intrigued by the possible realities of secret societies, hierarchy governments and people that really pull the strings” (which is why he named his albums things like The Coming, When Disaster Strikes & Anarchy etc).
