    Singer and Artist, Garek

    in LGBT

    GAREK is a New York based singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Wisconsin, he made the transition to New York in 2010. Fusing Industrial Rock (a la Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Garbage) with haunting melodies and explosive choruses, GAREK creates a distinct sonic landscape. This Electro-Industrial hybrid, coupled with his artfully degenerate style, make him a force to be watched.

    GAREK’s first single “Save The Queen” has already gotten tastemakers around the globe buzzing. London’s EQ Music has hailed him as “a deity of Industrial-Electro mastery” while Australia’s DNA Magazine says, “He’s ready to rule the world!” MTV’s LOGO (NewNowNext) says, “for all [his] influences, there’s something distinctive about what Garek is doing.”

    “Save The Queen” and “E.T.” set the stage for GAREK’s rise as a 90s kid with a contemporary torch. Stay tuned and visit his official website HERE; also purchase his debut EP, "Take the King, Vol. 1" here on iTunes

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Award-winning Guitarist, Tom Lagana!

    in Music

    It has been several years since Tom Lagana and I have had the chance to talk.  Let's just say that he's a BUSY man. Here's why: Tom's a Jazz guitarist - but also well known for his master classes in Classical.  And he has performed with orchestras: he has played with the NSO, alongside Eric Idle of Monty Python.  And was with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra when John Waters celebrated his 30th anniversary of "Hair Spray."  He's also a composer and bandleader and he takes his teaching abilities very seriously.  Towson State University (where he received his Masters of Music) and the University of Maryland  are two wonderful institutions that are grateful to him.


    So you see that it has been a TAD tricky to rope Tom into another interview!  The last time was when we were face-to-face in a radio station's studio.  And we were focusing on Tom's last CD - which is why we're catching up NOW - because he has a new one!  "Vol. 1"  is what this beautiful collecton is called, featuring the group with George Garzone.  With Bossa, Jazz favorites and originals.  Exceptional music by a seasoned and passionate artist who was mentored by the legendary Charlie Byrd.  So close a relationship was theirs that Charlie hand-picked Tom to play at his favorite watering hole (also legendary), The King of France Tavern.  That's where Tom & his Trio became fixtures.  


    There has been much that Tom has seen in his wonderfully satisfying career - early success came in the Walt Disney Jazz Band in Orlando, Florida.  He also won the Sidney Lieberman Competition, an award that is usually given to pianists.  Tom was the first guitarist to be honored.  "Just Jazz Guitar" featured his analysis of Pat Metheny's work, which thrilled Pat.

Since the age of 7, Karma who was born Paula Renee Joseph absorbed every ounce of music she heard which eventually led her to

    With the goal to create music that doesn’t have an expiration date & to become a brand that people can relate to more so than just an artist, Karma jumped feet first in to writing, singing & production. Not only has Karma been the back-up singer for several artists including Sharon Maree, Steve Harris, Brooke Taylor, Sheena Player, Minh & Amber Melody, which has allowed her to tour opening up for the likes of the Isley Bros and Maze Frankie Beverly; Karma has also written songs for several artists exclusively under Heat Pharm Productions.
