Next time on Third Eye Cinema: one of the premier names in old school speed metal shred guitar!
Working alongside Rainbow, MSG and Alcatrazz frontman Graham Bonnett, he blazed his way onto the 80's metal scene with the somewhat uncharacteristic Stand In Line, making enough of a name for himself to release his own REH instructional video Speed Soloing before seemingly vanishing from the scene thereafter.
After spending a full two decades producing quality, effectively Christian metal albums solely available as imports from the RCA Victor Japan label with original vocalist Rob Rock (Angelica, M.A.R.S. Project Driver) and Chastain/Fifth Angel drummer Ken Mary, he’s returned to domestic shores courtesy of Frontiers records.
With a blazing new album evoking the sound and style of classic 80's L.A. style metal and some blazing, sweep picked arpeggiation and fiery 32nd note runs still marked by a strong grounding in melodic structure and classic song construction, Impelliteri appears to be poised for their first U.S. breakthrough in decades (and their first domestic release with longtime vocalist Rock in the drivers' seat)!
Join us as we speak to one of the great shredders, the legendary Chris Impelliteri, only here on Third Eye Cinema!
Week 89 (Sun. Apr. 19) Chris Impelliteri

Jim and Jennifer are excited to talk with David Randle. David is a musician extraordinaire. In this late teens he was already playing concert dates with Cream, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Steppenwolf, Buffalo Springfield, Eric Burdon & The Animals, The Byrds, and many others. Fascinated by the compositional elements of music, David studied with two of southern California’s most prominent classical composers. He developed a signature writing style with an ever present weaving of interesting guitar work through his backdrops. After leaving active playing to own a very successful musical instrument store, get married and raise a daughter, the creative call was too great to resist and David began teaching developing artists how to perfect their writing styles while using his abilities to both arrange and produce their music. He began doing a small amount of live playing again, which put him in perfect position to receive “the call.” One day a singer named Rebeca called him inquiring about them working together and she had such an amazing voice and gift for melody writing that the answer was obvious. And they became Rebeca and David: http://www.rebecaanddavid.com/
Guitarist Dom Minasi is a native New Yorker and part of New York City's illustrious Downtown Scene. An innovator in the field of improvisational Jazz, Dom wears many hats: musician, composer, arranger, educator, author, producer and owner and president of CDM Records, an independent record label.
B DEVINE BIO: B.DeVINE jokes that if Prince and Jill Scott could have created a love-child it would have been her! A singer since she could remember and a songwriter since she entered puberty, DeVINE found herself drawn to all types of music, from R&B to House and anything in between.
Armed with only an idea and ProTools, she decided to form her own genre of music, affectionately named etry, due to its infusion of intimacy-based spoken word with smooth melodies. To put it simply, it is Erotica set to music. Literoticism, another term coined by B.DeVINE, is the ability to create and/or heighten sexual pleasure through literature and sound.
WHYTE HENNY BIO: Jeremy May (born November 26, 1986) Known by his stage name WHYTE HENNY, is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer/rapper and composer. After receiving his first guitar at the tender age of 5, WHYTE HENNY realized his life’s calling. After years of practice and patience WHYTE HENNY was afforded the opportunity of a lifetime. His first live performance came while opening for his dad’s band (“What's Up”/ Imago Records) in front of a sellout crowd at the age of 10. After seeing his son perform, Henny’s dad realized his son’s undeniable talent.
With a new sound, WHYTE HENNY is now in the process of recording his debut EP album entitled “TRAPPMETAL” and two mix-tapes “A SHOT-OF-HENNY” and “HENNY ON-THE-ROCK”, all slated for early January 2015 releases. Lending their production talents to both projects are the 5x Grammy Award Winning Multi-Platinum producers The Newton Twins (“Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”) and “The Specialist” the Multi-Platinum Grammy nominated producer for Pink’s (“Can’t Take Home).
WHY DO WE CHEAT ON YOUR WIFE?
WHY DO WE STEAL?
WHY DO WE QUIT OUR JOB?
WHY DO WE DO BAD BEHAVIOR? WHY?
NEXT QUESTION........HOW DO WE STOP DOING THE "BAD" BEHAVIOR
You know that you should exercise, and eat lots of veggies and less fried, salty and sweet foods.
But knowing something and actually doing it are two very different things.
You know you should stop procrastinating. You know you should watch less TV or go to social sites (or news sites, or your email program) less often. You know you should be writing, or learning that language you’ve always wanted to learn, or practicing guitar, or decluttering your house.
Knowing isn’t the problem. It’s the doing that gets us every time.
Welcome! We're stoked to have Joel Plaskett back on the show, this time discussing his most recent release, Joel Plaskett & The Park Avenue Sobriety Test. It touches on his solo acoustic side, his guitar rock work with the Emergency, his happy-go-lucky rhyming talents, carefree memories of growing up in Nova Scotia, and a little bit of anger at the forces making life tougher these days. There are many moments that draw on previous classic Plaskett, from beloved albums such as Three and Ashtray Rock, right back to his Thrush Hermit days. And there are new sides to his sounds as well – Joel like you’ve never heard him.
Of course, we'll also have our Canadian Spotlight Song of the Week, which comes to us courtesy of Kaylan Mackinnon.
March To May’s Darren Guyaz (guitar, vocals, keyboard) and Beth Wesche (Celtic harp, vocals)first met in December 2012. By March 2013, the folk/indie/Americana duo had co-written their first two songs, by April they had a paid gig under their belts, and by May they had a name and shows booked out into the months ahead. Before settling in Seattle, Washington, where the act is now based, both Darren and Beth had traversed the Western Hemisphere separately. Darren migrated from the northern Appalachians to his birth-state of Montana, before heading on a SouthAmerican adventure across the Andes mountain range, eventually falling in love with Seattle andthe Pacific Northwest. The daughter of a US Foreign Service Officer, Beth also spent time in theAndes, as well as a host of US states on both coasts, before moving to Seattle, just blocks fromwhere her beloved Celtic harp had been created, years before. The duo has drawn comparisons to acts like The Civil Wars, Damien Rice, the Swell Season, The Banner Days, and Robert Plant andAlison Krauss. The Water’s Edge is the debut release from March To May, out April 25th, 2015.For more information, visit www.marchtomay.com.
You’ve got to understand music’s traditions in order to reinvent them. Jordan Bratton certainly does. The 18-year-old singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer possesses a prodigious grasp on all aspects of music. His critically applauded 2014 mixtape, The Grey Area, and debut single “Danger 3” are wholly the products of his personal production and songwriting vision. Armed with a multitude of talents, he stands poised to truly break ground.
At only four-years-old, the New York native realized his innate passion for singing. Encouraged by his “musical” family, he joined the choir in Kindergarten and enjoyed his first moment in the spotlight singing a solo at Lincoln Center during the holidays. Young Jordan also learned the drums before picking up piano and organ at age eleven followed by guitar, bass, and even clarinet. Immersed in the likes of Earth Wind & Fire and Kim Burrell among other R&B and gospel icons, he even started performing live with his dad’s band as well as playing organ at church.
“I built a great feel and vibe for soulful music,” he explains. “I really admired those artists, and they impacted my singing so much.”
Around the same time, Jordan also hit Broadway. After joining the touring production of The Lion King as “Young Simba,” he went on to star in The Color Purple. All the while, he amassed an impressive collection of songs and productions created in his parent’s basement.
