Life can be meaningless if your life is out of rhythm, if there is no happiness to ceate a rhythm. Everything in life can sound pretty, but if your life has lost the beat and the there is no trumpets to keep you moving ahead to the promise land you will get stuck seeing somthing that has no meaning for your life. Happiness is like a rhythm that keeps you hearing the music moving you forward to a place designed for you. We were meant to enjoy all we do becasue when we enjoy what we do it is enjoying what came from the hand of God. Without the enjoyment of God there is no beat of the drums there is no sweet sound of trumets and not guitars moving in rhythm.

Dair, a French resident, brings the extremes of world musical guitar disciplines: Flamenco & the Blues to his musical compostion. "Blues has this rawness, a simplicity and an undisguised passion in it’s expression of life’s experiences.

All these experiences have gifted is his guitar passion remarkable albums and hundreds of studio hours in film and television soundtrack recording. In an interview with Glen when asked about Music. Chris replied: "It’s like breathing, if I stop, I die. I’ve been playing all my life and I could never give it up, that would be unthinkable. It’s more exciting now for me than it ever was.

I sing with a celtic influence which I couldn't explain until I found that I have an Irish great grandmother, which kind of clarifies that for me. My style includes Psychedelic Blues Rock, Folk Rock, Ballads and so on. I am not influenced by anyone musically, I like all sorts of music, from Aaron Neville to Rammstein !'

Billy Conway, who played drums in my parents’ band, and the rock band Morphine, took me aside one night and asked me when I was going to start writing my own songs. I thought that was a pretty good question.” So Reed got to work, and in his late teens.After a move to Colorado, Reed’s clear tenor, emotional songwriting, and undeniable charisma as a front man launched Acoustic Junction in 1989, which developed a cult following in the jam- band era of the 90s. The band released six albums, a collaboration with Graham Nash, and was signed to Capricorn Records and later Mercury Records. Reed found a new kind of success in short trips once or twice a year to Los Angeles, New York and Nashville that earned him placements on the silver screen, television, and commercials. Heput what money he could from the royalties to make three solo records: Spark (2004), Stoned Beautiful (2007), and Once an Ocean (2009) Country legend Lee Ann Womack’s September 2014 release leads with his song “Fly.”Lost in the West is a soundtrack for the invisible cinema of the mind. It features seven songs combining Reed’s powerful lyrics and vocal performance set against wide-open landscapes painted with Stratocaster and Wurlitzer. A deeply talented and accomplished cast joins Reed as producers, performers, and co-writers on this record. John also delivers a masterful performance on percussion, and Jefferson’s varied guitar work shines throughout the record. Anaïs Mitchel sings on “Rags and Bones” and “Four Lanes.” Frazey Ford appears on “Caroline” and “Steal Away.” Reed co-wrote “Caroline” with Esmé Patterson, founding member of Paper Bird, and he teamed with Gregory Alan Isakov to write “Rodeo Clown.”The choices Reed has made earned him the respect of his industry peers on one hand, and his loved-ones on the other.
A show dedicated to "True Life Experiences." The Life & Motivation of Michael & Denny Jenkins,often dubbed “The Earth, Wind, & Fire of Gospel”, the driving force behind Spirit 2 Spirit are two brothers, Michael and Denny Jenkins. Together the two have over 50 years of musical experience. Michael plays bass, keyboards, and percussion. He has done lead and background vocals. He is a truly blessed lyrical writer, arranger personified, and a technical engineer, whose creativity in digital recording, editing, and mastering is unequaled. His ability to get the best out of an individual (not limited to musical or vocal artists) permits him to meet the challenge all producers and writers face in creating a viable product to be loved and cherished by the general public, as well as revered and respected by those in the industry. Denny, by design, is a percussionist who uses the keyboards to enhance his song writing ability. His strength lies in his lyric writing, and arrangements, and he sings lead and background vocals. The brothers have a musical background wherein their father, the late Thomas Jenkins helped form, manage, and sing for the Gospel Quartet #THEMIGHTYSOUTHERNECHOES, of Washington D.C. The group’s name was retired in 1999 by Mr. Thomas Jenkins, Co-Founder, after 48 years of praising our Lord God in music and in faith. Michael and Denny were also blessed with the opportunity to play with their father‘s group a couple of years before it’s retirement, and decided to continue their father’s legacy through the group “SPIRIT 2 SPIRIT”.
MXMGBTR - Motivating & Inspiring the Next Generation X, through "True Life Experiences."
The group originally consisted of frontman Melvin Riley, Gordon Strozier (lead guitar), Gregory Potts (keyboards), Willie Triplett (percussion/keyboards), John Eaton (bass guitar), and Gerald Valentine (drums). They had performed throughout Flint at high school talent shows and were discovered by WJLB Detroit Radio personality The Electrifying Mojo in 1982. They gained regional fame with their first release, "Tonight," in 1983. "Tonight" was an underground hit in Flint and Detroit which helped garner them national prominence shortly after their signing under the MCA label. They recorded their debut album, Ready for the World, during 1984 with producer Bernard Terry and engineer Charles Brown, Jr.
In 1985, the band signed to the Steven Machat-Rick Smith management company, AMI. The agreement with MCA was redrawn, and promotion and marketing dollars were committed to promote the group. This proved successful as the group was steered to #1 on the US pop charts as well as top five in all the Western European countries and Australia, with their best-known hit "Oh Sheila." In the US, this song went to #1 on the R&B, Pop Charts, and the Hot Dance Club Play charts that year, becoming the first ever single to hold the #1 spot on all three of these charts simultaneously. The song "Digital Display" followed and hit #21.
In 1986, the band released their second album, Long Time Coming, produced by: Gary Spaniola which returned them to the Top 10 on the pop charts with the slow jam, "Love You Down," which peaked at #9.
Ready for the World went on to release several more albums that failed to capture the success of the group's first two releases, and as a result, they disbanded in 1991.
On the August 13, 2015 edition of "Nature Of Reality Radio" I welcome Alexandre Tannous who has been active as a musician, educator, composer, and as an ethnomusicologist. He holds a Bachelor of Music with a double major in Music Theory and Composition, and a Master of Arts degree in Music Education from Columbia University Teachers College. As a recipient of the Mellon Fellowship he also earned a Master of Arts and a Master of Philosophy degrees in Ethnomusicology from Columbia University where he was enrolled in the PH.D. program.
As a musician, he has performed a variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, rock, and non-Western music on the double bass, guitar, piano and percussion. Alexandre is also active as an ethnomusicologist. He has conducted fieldwork for 17 years in over 40 countries around the world. His ethnomusicological research investigates issues of acculturation, community, musical identity in an urban setting, and the concepts of talent, charisma, and leadership in music. He is a sought-after ethnomusicologist/composer consultant on projects in recording studios helping creating awareness in amalgamating various musical cultures.
For the past eight years he has been researching the therapeutic and esoteric properties of sound from Western scientific, Eastern philosophical, and shamanic societal beliefs perspectives. This has lead him to design a protocol of an integrated experience he calls “Sound Meditation” in which he raises an awareness to how a specifically designed sound can have the ability to help us to disconnect from habitual patterns, and guiding people in how to disconnect from the mind in this setting while listening to the specific traditional instruments he plays. He currently works as a sound therapist and teaches this practice.

Minor is steadily, patiently pointed to major as Sondra adds percussive highlights and Mariam moves to the harp for the final pianissimo movement featuring introductions of the players.
