    BITS: LITTLE RIVER BAND'S WAYNE NELSON

    in Entertainment

    Lead singer and bass guitar player, song writer and co-writer for the Little River Band, Wayne Nelson has been playing bass and singing lead vocals with the band for more than 30 years. Nelson reminisces with Halli when he joins her at the table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.


    The Little River Band originally formed in Melbourne, Australia, in 1975. Nelson came on board in 1979 the first American to join the band. All told, LRB has sold more than 30 million records and achieved 13 U.S. Top 40 hits, most notably Reminiscing, Lonesome Loser, Cool Change, The Night Owls and Take It Easy on Me, the latter two songs featuring lead vocals by Nelson, along with his considerable talent as a bass guitarist, his funk bass skills distinguishing him early in the band’s history. Just as compelling as the story of the band is Nelson’s personal life a story of extreme highs and tragic lows. 


    Reminiscing with Little River Band’s Wayne Nelson, Halli’s guest for the hour when he joins Halli at her table Wednesday, May 20, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

    Willie Nile; If I Was A River.. New Music and Tour!

    in Entertainment

    In his three and a half decades as a recording artist, Willie Nile has earned a reputation as both a fiercely committed rock ’n’ roller and a singularly insightful songwriter. It’s Nile’s introspective side that fuels If I Was A River, a deeply compelling ten-song collection that diverges from his usual sound, while affirming the remarkable melodic and lyrical skills that have long endeared the artist to his passionately loyal fan base.Working with Grammy-winning producer Stewart Lerman (Boardwalk Empire, Antony and the Johnsons, Loudon Wainwright III, Dar Williams) Nile recorded the material in an appropriately spare environment that helped to capture the songs’ intimacy and immediacy. He also employed the same Steinway Grand piano that he'd played 34 years earlier on the evening of the death of John Lennon, while both Lennon and Nile were recording at Manhattan’s Record Plant. When Nile was working on If I Was A River, the legendary piano was residing at Hobo Sound in Weehawken, NJ, where he recorded the new album with a minimum of embellishment or trickery.  If I Was A River also features some contributions from guitar master Steuart Smith (of Eagles/Rosanne Cash/Rodney Crowell fame) and multi-instrumental stringmaster David Mansfield (whose voluminous credits range from Bob Dylan to Johnny Cash to Yo La Tengo), along with backing vocals from singer-songwriter and frequent Nile co-writer Frankie Lee.It’s hard to think of many other artists who are doing some of their best work in the fourth decade of their careers, but Willie Nile continues to seek out new creative challenges and conquer new musical territory.“Doing this album was liberating in many ways,” he states. “I learned that it’s fun to change horses and take different roads from time to time as one travels through life, and I think I'll carry that lesson with me in the records that I make in the future.?
