Doug Hocking Western Author is my guest. Website: www.doughocking.com Doug Hocking is an independent scholar and author of fiction who has completed advanced studies in History, Ethnography and Historical Archaeology and lives and breathes Way Out West. His principal interest is in New Mexico Territory from the Mexican War up through the Civil War. It was an exciting period when the land was new and isolated from the rest of the country and violence ran at its high mark. Following leads from source to end he is learning about the Santa Fe Trail, the Fur Trade, the Mexican and Civil Wars, the Apache, the Penitentes and percussion cap weapons.
“I’ve found that the way to know history is to learn about the tools people used, the landscape, the trails, the climate and the economics of the times until the options open to people begin to make sense. I try to express that both in fiction and history writing.”
Singer/Songwriter, John Enghauser's new album, "Reality," delves head-first into meaningfully relevant subject matter ranging from the male-female dynamic in the blues-y guitar-driven "Keep Your Jacket On"; the seductive rocker, "Black Dress"; and as Enghauser explains, "a message asking our predecessors if they would have made the same environmental mistakes in hindsight" in the mid-tempo jazz shuffle, "Tears Of Yesterday"; to the funky groove of "This Fate I See" - "about the silent March in Tehran after the stolen vote...a song of hope and optimism that things will change for the better", explains Enghauser. Enghauser wrote, arranged the album performing lead and background vocals, electric and acoustic guitars as well as keyboards and hand percussion.
Abdias Ernesto Garcia is a folk experimentalist from Puerto Rico who adorns his roots as a percussionist with a sensibility for poetry and culture. Combining different genres into one cohesive package, Abdias fuses magnetic and hypnotizing soulful grooves, mesmerizing vocals that create a lushful landscape of multi-cultural sounds. He has understood and spoken the universal language of music since the tender age of 2 when he began playing percussion on his grandma's pots and pans. Abdias has been living in the experiment of life and music from the days of his youth when his uncles introduced him to some of the greatest musical concoctions in their 78 Vinyl records to currently producing albums for performing artists in his Orlando, Florida Studio, Abdias has soundly embraced music as a part of himself in his lifelong journey. Abdias began to build his artistry from scratch through winning talent shows and international competitions including Sabado Gigante & Juventud Vibra, studying at La Escuela Libre de Puerto Rico as he trained and played with the likes of Tito Puente & Giovanni Hidalgo, also performing in concert halls with Awilda Carbia (a prominent Puerto Rican Comedian), working alongside musical director Tito Curet Alonso, performing with El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, and playing on stage with Willie Colon. Abdias’ latest release entitled “Mas Colores y Menos Horrores” (More Colors and Less Horrors) presents ten new original songs that highlight his personal growth as he continues to explore the experimental acoustic sound that has become a trademark for the passionate songwriter.

The origins of Waterseed begin in New Orleans, the birthplace of multi-instrumentalists Lou Hill and J Sharp, the architects of Water Seed’s cool, elemental sound. Preternaturally aware of their paths fairly early, Hill began playing the alto sax in fourth grade while Sharp was developing his piano chops over the three-notes of “Hot Crossed Buns” at the tender age of five. Both learned as children to respect their crafts through studious dedication, rigorous practice schedules, and trying their hand at several different instruments before landing on their primary tools of musical expression, the percussion for Hill and the keys for Sharp, each finding their home. Sharp reared in a home of classical music, engaged in demanding training while nursing concerto circuit dreams. Hill was immersed in the radio R&B and funk of the day and the jazz culture of his storied surroundings. Both formally trained in esteemed music programs, Sharp through the famed NOCCA, the Jazz and Heritage School at Southern University and Dillard University, Hill at the venerated Xavier University. Enter Pasadena bred flautist, Cinese. Inspired by the legendary Bobbi Humphrey, the orchestral-trained Cinese switched to jazz after a 10-year business and school-led hiatus with music. Answering a Craigslist ad for Water Seed, Cinese learned her classical meets jazz foundation found nice complements with Hill and Sharp’s, rounding out their sound. Now, with a 5 piece band that eventually included bass player Marius Tilton and lead vocalist Ryan Johnson, the concept albums soon followed. Their self-released, experimental 2006 EP debut, Two Words, uncovered an avant-garde Water Seed sound, developed enough notice to garner the band an audience & brief attention from Sony Music.
