Legally Blynd is easily the tightest, most creative soul-blues band performing today. Great songs rooted in the blues and gospel quartet traditions, written by and featuring the deeply soulful lead vocals of John "Jubu" Smith, a double whammy of awesome guitar work by Jubu and Errol Cooney, and a rhythm section made up of some of the most accomplished players in the business make for a truly world-class team. --Lee Hildebrand, Veteran Contributor to the San Francisco Chronicle and Living Blues.
Legally Blynd consistently produces music that pushes the boundaries of what music should be. Combining soul, gospel, and blues influences, Legally Blynd brings a clearly differentiated sound to a diverse group of audiences everywhere.

Derrick “Doc” Pearson gave his life to Jesus Christ in 1990 and since that time has only used his gifts, talents and abilities for the building of the kingdom of God by answering the call of the Lord to preach the gospel through his music and songs. He and his wife Lamar formed IAM Music Company to release his brand of inspirational gospel music.
IAM Music Company’s music projects have garnished thousands of song downloads, music streams and video views, while receiving numerous awards and accolades including: a Top 10 Billboard Gospel Album Chart position, a Top 50 Media Base Gospel Charts position, 7 Rhythm of Gospel Award Nominations, an EnSound Music Award and more.

Derrick states that, “These 10 years are only the beginning, as God is not through with me yet”. God promised that, “He who began a good work in me shall complete it until the day of Jesus Christ”.
This Wednesday on A Kind Voice on Music we talk with singer/songwriter and storyteller George Schricker about a career spanning decades - both for himself and for his audiences. George has presented his storytelling method in 48 different artist residencies, and spent twenty years performing for children in schools accross the country. His efforts culminated in a children's album, George's Brother, whose song "Archaeopteryx" was even nominated for Children's Song of the Year.
George has since returned to writing and playing for primarily adult audiences, with album releases in 2010 (Back on Track) and 2012. "Losing Track of Time", one of the songs on Back on Track, received notable mention in The New York Times and significant airplay in our fair state of Indiana. In tonight's episode we listen to several tracks from his latest album, Precious Time, and talk about George's band, event center, and love of songwriting.

Of all the human qualities that are desired by people here in America and around the world right now, there can be little doubt or question that leadership is at the top of that list. Diluted by decades of indifference and mediocrity since the days of the "Greatest Generation" that fought in World War II, leadership as become a quality as rare as 100-carat diamonds and honest politicians. Nevertheless, those of us with long memories do recall touchstone individuals who not only made a difference in their time, but changed the very world they were part of forever. One of these was a somewhat gnomish and often disliked naval officer who created a whole new technology and era literally through the force of his own will: Adm. Hyman G. Rickover, USN.
Today, Rickover remains something of an enigma to military historians and analysts almost 3 decades after his death. Arguably one of the most brilliant and powerful naval officers of his day, he never commanded great ships and fleets in battle. Able to make other officers and politicians sweat and fear for their professional lives, his actual job for most of his career was to build engines for submarines and surface ships. And while his nuclear engines changed the history of the world, at no time did he ever command a ship powered by one. To learn more about this important figure in U.S. history, join author, historian, journalist, game designer, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@Greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. His guest this week will be U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) author and career submariner RADM Dave Oliver, USN (Ret.). Oliver is the author of the new book AGAINST THE TIDE, a biographical study of Rickover and his unique leadership and management styles.

This episode of A Kind Voice was visited by a number of technical issues - bumper glitching, mic glitching, losing our guest. It is a testament to our dedication to the topic and our editing process that the only easily noticeable remnant of these problems in the recorded show is the host's change from microphone to telephone connection after the first break.
We're always continuing to refine and better our proccess here at A Kind Voice on Music in order to bring you the highest quality wholesome discussion and entertainment possible. There will be bumps in the road as we transition, but over time you'll see a big positive difference when you look back.

JCraig is an emerging force on the music entertainment landscape, launching out of total obscurity after overcoming addiction, tragedy, and transforming himself round by round into a reliable Pop and R&B headliner.
In a southern town, Memphis, home of STAX, is where you’ll find JCraig working diligently to uphold the rich musical excellence from the town’s iconic legends such as Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Aretha, Tina & Ike, Elvis Presley, Kirk Whalum, and Pop star Justin Timberlake. Now, there’s JCraig and he’s in a league of his own these days and seems to be transcending time and the complaints that he should throw in the towel. But, how could he? Music is in his hands, his head—it’s all over him.
This PK was the youngest boy of five, born to a Bishop. From the earliest moments ,he was singing and playing guitar in the church. He became an accomplished musician. It was obvious to his peers in New York that an album was in the making. Oftentimes, they would par ooze the musical credits looking of his JCraig’s name.
After serving his country in the armed forces and overcoming many of life’s tragedies, he has emerged simply as a singer with a soulful niche, and he knows how to work it. He enjoys making music you can make love to, drive to, clean house to, and just simply smile and feel good to.
Today's episode shines our spotlight on the words and music of Nashville singer/songwriter, Mia Rose Lynne. To learn more about Mia's music please checkout her now-funded Kickstarter project, or her website. Hosted by Ryder Timberlake.
