Tonight Jamie welcomes award-winning singer-songwriter Bernie Nelson to the Show.
His first No.1 single, “Daddy Never Was The Cadillac Kind,” is now a country music standard with Million-Airplay status. It’s no wonder his name is among the A-list for hit songwriters. Now he’s taking his songwriting talent solo in his own career as a recording artist, and he’s started off running. Everyone who’s anyone in the music industry has been out supporting his new album, Blue.
Pop Artist Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) Welcomes Pop Country Singer/ Songwriter Amanda Lamb to the show.
With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots.
Growing up in Newport Beach, humming along to Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain on the radio, Amanda Lamb was entranced by the authenticity of country music. “The stories in these songs sounded real,” she says. When she began her personal musical journey, she recalls her grandmother making a perceptive suggestion. “She said, ‘Why aren't you singing country?’” Recording in Nashville, she realized that her Grandmother had been right. “Country Music feels more comfortable than anything I have ever done,” she says. “It feels like home.”

As soon as you hear the music of singer & songwriter Karma who is based out of Los Angeles, CA; you will quickly realize that not all Karma is bad. Karma describes her style as R&B sprinkled with a twist of Hip Hop and Soul. Since the age of 7, Karma who was born Paula Renee Joseph absorbed every ounce of music she heard which eventually led her to
embark on her own music career. Appreciating music from artists who may not be number one on the charts all the time, Karma notes artists such as Teedra Moses & Aaliyah as influences in addition to legends such as Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight, Lauryn Hill & of course Aretha Franklin just to name a few. Karma learned at an early age that being versatile with music would lead to a well rounded career so she immersed herself in to Jazz, R&B, Soul, Hip Hop plus Pop music to help cultivate a unique style all her own.
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.
Karma is now back working on her new project tentatively titled “Karma is A…”
