This episode of Behind the Prose is more like Behind the Lyrics. Indiana-born, New York-based singer/songwriter Gandhi takes us on a journey that starts when he taught himself how to play the guitar and write songs. That was 15 years ago. Today, like prose writers, Gandhi says through an process of experimentation and practice, he’s found his voice and is preparing for the release of Rebel On, an EP that reflects the musician with a mission he’s become.
In this interview, you’ll learn there are many parallels between penning lyrics and writing prose, including a surprising discovery about the role of the producer.
We listen to some of Gandhi’s song’s, dissect his lyrics, and invite you out to Brooklyn on May 1, where Gandhi will perform a collaboration show with writer and photographer Abigail Ekue. The Darker Side of Lust Private Reading and Concert features Ekue’s erotic poetry and Gandhi’s acoustic melodies and vocals.
Go ahead. Listen. Learn. Write songs.

DIRT ROAD ANGELS
The five talented, creative and seasoned recording artists that make up Alberta's Dirt Road Angels are: Shawna Lynne, Shila Marie, Danita, Karen Claypool and Dahlia Wakefield. Their brand new album is called Paint The Town Red. It features catchy country rock songs such as the title track, which is their first single; the upbeat and fun song "Make Me Wanna"; they get tender on "Memories" and show their heartwarming side on "Best Friend." All are songs they wrote and performed at their 2014 Canadian Country Music Association Diamonds in the Rough showcase.
Country music became Curtis Braly's first love. While in school, he took advantage of every performing opportunity given to him. In the eighth grade, he won first place in a talent contest singing "Old Time Rock-n-Roll". That set things in motion for Curtis to seriously pursue performing live. "Something magical happened to me on that stage," he said. "I knew that music was my destiny, there is no other feeling like it!" This Texas artist's latest single is called "Doors Closing Everywhere."

Their musical bond is as strong as their small town roots: Twin Kennedy, comprised of West Coast sisters Carli and Julie Kennedy, have been making music together since they could talk. Born and raised in the small town of Powell River, British Columbia, the sister duo grew up perfecting their sibling harmonies and dynamic live performances, while making their name known throughout their small community as a family band.
Growing up in such a musically infused family, it is no wonder that these sisters crafted their sound through a unique fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz and classical music. With years of classical training, including their Bachelors Degrees in Music Performance from the University of Victoria, the sisters have found their home in country music. With Carli on vocals and guitar, and Julie on vocals and violin, these petite powerhouses will fill your soul with joy and warmth through their seamless harmonies and heartfelt songwriting.
Having released two EPs - and receiving seven BCCMA Award nominations since 2012 - as Carli & Julie Kennedy, these sisters are set to debut their first album as Twin Kennedy on April 7th. Produced by multiple CCMA and JUNO award winning artist George Canyon and renowned producer Graham Sharkey, the album "It's A Love Thing" is a beautifully honest account of the ebb and flow of the navigation through love and life.

Songwriter and Recording Artist JAMES HOUSE co-wrote Grammy Nominated Country Song of the Year “Ain’t That Lonely Yet” (recorded by Dwight Yoakam) and CMA Nominated Song of the Year “A Broken Wing” (recorded by Martina McBride) along with another smash hit "In A Week Or Two” (recorded by Diamond Rio).
Other artists to record his songs include Tina Turner, Olivia Newton-John, Rod Stewart, The Mavericks and Sara Evans - to name just several.
Born & raised in Sacramento, California, James pursued music in L.A. before making the move to Nashville in the late 1980s. Not long after the move, he was signed to MCA Records, where he began a string of chart hits like “Don’t Quit Me Now” and “Hard Times For An Honest Man.”
A switch to Epic Nashville produced the critically-acclaimed Days Gone By album and yielded the top 5 hit “This Is Me Missing You,” and top 20 singles “Real Good Way To Wind Up Lonesome” and “Little By Little.”
His latest album is entitled Songwriters Serenade. It features 10 songs co-written with James by some of the most successful songwriters in country music. One of the most talked about tracks has James singing the duet "Over Getting Over You" with newcomer Natalie Noone (daughter of famed founder/member of the Herman's Hermits, Peter Noone).
MERRITT WHITLEY BIO: It was something that started out as passion, and slowly ignited into a deep, unconditional love. Singing, and songwriting has been an influential part of Merritt Whitley’s life since the very beginning. Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Merritt’s songs are reflections of her life, and stem from her personal experiences.
When Merritt was 15 years old, she wrote a song for the very first time. She was instantly hooked into the magic of writing her own music. However, she did not share her talent with anyone at first. It wasn't until later in high school that Merritt finally shared her music with the world, and received an incredibly positive, and unimaginable response.
Merritt enjoys performing, and has a way of drawing her audience into her life and music. Her songs are relatable, catchy, and paint a vivid picture. Merritt thoroughly enjoys writing about love, life, and everything in between, but most of all, sharing it with others.
Merritt’s musical inspirations range from artists such as Carrie Underwood, Colbie Caillat, Cassadee Pope, and Taylor Swift. She is currently working with an incredibly talented producer named Larry Gann, who has worked with some of the top artists in the industry.
Merritt will be releasing a brand new EP with four original songs within the next month. The title of her new single is "Goodbye" and it will be featured on iTunes with the rest of her music.
We'll also be interviewing Hasan Yates CEO of Masculine Footwear, Luxurious hand crafted Italian shoes for men and woman.
New Jersey based singer, rapper, and songwriter Justina has been building a strong internet presence in the past months with her music videos garnering front-page features on notable websites and blogs.
Justina’s music showcases her eclectic and edgy ability to fuse hip-hop with her playful pop sensibility and distinctive raspy vocal tone. Her critically acclaimed sound — which has been compared to Nicki Minaj and Kesha — has music fans of all eras hailing her the ”Hip-Hop Joan Jett”.
After winning a songwriting competition that focused on bringing change for the less fortunate, Justina was featured on a limited edition Cheerios box that was distributed nationwide. She also donates her time to the non-profit organization Pinups For Pitbulls — an organization based on pitbull rescue and community education — appearing in their 2011 pinup calendar.
You can currently find Justina touring the country with Conquer Entertainment — the music division of Shop.com — promoting both her projects and their upcoming product releases.
