    INTERVIEW W/ TOP R&B INDIE ARTIST J-CRAIG ON THE BEREADYFORTHEMOMENT PODCAST

    in Indie Music

    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.

    The Edge with Cassandre Dayne

    in Entertainment

    Join Cassandre Dayne on Sunday, August 2nd at 2pm EST as she highlights another artist who takes their works to the edge. Up this week - David Paris Carter-Singer, an accomplished author and fellow Booktrope team member. 


    Paris Singer was born in Brussels, Belgium. He has lived in the U.K. and in various places in Spain, where he currently resides. At university, he studied English law and Spanish law, but didn't like it. He then studied translation and didn't like it, either.


    Currently, he teaches English in the south of Spain. He is told he has far too many interests. A few are basketball, tennis, swimming, playing his old guitar, learning Japanese, painting, reading, cooking...(See? Too many). Not a day goes by, however, where he doesn't write something, be it under a palm tree or on a bench at a bus stop somewhere.


    Join for a lively conversation...If you dare.

    Starling Glow Live

    in Military

    Join us this week as we welcome the pop rock band, Starling Glow. The LA based band fronted by Liz Hill, has just released their brand new single “Caution Tape,” which comes off their debut EP. Liz Anne Hill took about 15 years and a few busted romances to create the songs that make up her band Starling Glow’s self-titled debut album, a blend of modern pop musical styles that ranges from pop/rock to dance and indie. Grammy nominated producer, songwriter, and musician Billy Mohler, one time member of L.A. band The Calling, who has also played or worked with Smashing Pumpkins, Macy Gray, Liz Phair, Kelly Clarkson, AWOLNation and skateboard pro Tony Hawk was hired to produce the record and immediately recognized the fellow Orange County native’s talent. The record was just released this past March through the newly formed Indie Label Trailblaze Music Group, where Mohler is General Manger.  A multi-instrumentalist, Hill grew up in Orange County surrounded by music. Her mom played piano, her dad guitar and older sister piano, pipe organ and drums, while they all sang. Her earliest musical influences include blues/country artists like Bonnie Raitt, Shania Twain and Dolly Parton, while learning to play Jimi Hendrix and Steely Dan songs on bass. We will talk to Starling Glow about their upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at their music, feature their latest songs, and ask them to share their message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Starling Glow at http://www.starlingglow.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with them during the show (718) 766-4193. If you would like to participate in the live chat during the show, you must sign up on the show site first and then log in during the show. As always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners. Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
