With 2 decades in the music business under his belt, Philly rock veteran John Faye has truly taken matters into his own hands: his new solo album Meddling Kid (which he is releasing a song at a time until the full record drops later in 2015) is an artistic tour-de-force on which he plays every instrument and sings every note (with the one notable exception of inviting all of his colleagues from his former band IKE to sing gang vocals on his remake of that band's signature hit "Into Philadelphia"). The lead single, "D.N.A.," is a scathing rebuke of skin-deep relationships and snap judgements in the age of Tinder and short attention spans.
John Faye has amassed an impressive musical resume dating back to his major label days fronting 90's alt-rockers The Caulfields (whose single "Devil's Diary" cracked the modern rock top-40, and whose album tracks landed on soundtracks for Disney's "The Babysitter's Club" and "Melrose Place"), to his first solo foray The John Faye Power Trip, which morphed into the aforementioned IKE (who put out 6 full-length records from 2003-2011), and his punk / garage-rock influenced duo John & Brittany, who gained notoriety on the Sirius/XM channel "Little Steven's Underground Garage" and on MTV-u with their video for their song "Paper Planes."
Now, in 2015, Faye is forging a brand new DIY path with his new record and live band, fittingly called John Faye & Those Meddling Kids! With sold out headlining shows in their home town and a coveted slot at Radio 104.5's Summer Block Party with Nate Ruess of Fun, The War On Drugs, MS MR, and Civil Twilight, John Faye is poised to bring out the Meddling Kid in everyone within earshot.
When you contemplate the illustrious career of Harvey Mason, your mind HAS to be blown. Born and raised in Atlantic City, young Harvey absorbed the vibes of the great musicians THERE - and showed so much promise on drums that he was playing with Duke Ellington and Errol Garner in the 60's. Early in his recording career, there he was - up front and center with Blue Note Records. And on Columbia: Please go check out Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters for a refresher course in freshly fused Jazz :)
The associations that this consummate first-call musician has made through five decades is staggering. Because, quite simply, HE is. Nathan East has shared space and stages with The Mase for 25 years or so (Fourplay's "Silver" just dropped) and he firmly suggests that drummers of ANY note studied Harvey Mason in order to find their own style. He was THAT distinctive THAT early in his journey.
We dare you to find another legendary drummer who has been involved with more Gold and Platinum recording sessions than our guest. Awards, accolades, nods from NARAS and "Modern Drummer." Over 150 motion picture soundtracks. A regular fixture at the Oscars each year. And that long relationship with Fourplay cannot be stressed enough. When you're with a successful musical unit for 25 years, that's cause for celebration!
As bandmates Nathan, Chuck Loeb, Bob James, and Harvey prepare for a holiday run at the Blue Note in New York, our friend wanted to take the time - during this Thanksgiving week - to express his gratitude for all that his fans have given him. How beautiful that NEW fans and fellow artists got together for his album last year. And how wonderful that life-long "brothers" are banding together again right before Christmas. How fortunate are we to visit with Harvey again? You already KNOW :)

First, let me say a sincere thank you to Kari Gaffney, who introduced yours truly to Nancy Lane. Kari-On Productions has given "Hybrid Jazz" new breath - since the company is intent on fabulous artists. To keep UP with the stable of talent that they offer is a formidable task. But there's no doubt that we should cross paths with Nancy. She's so beautifully natural in her delivery. There's nothing staged or phony - she means every line in every song - but she's having a BALL while delivering the message :)
Turns out that it MUST be hereditary, this musical talent. Nancy's Grandmother was an opera singer - her Aunt was a Jazz entertainer. Dad used to play sax at home as his enchanted daughter danced. AND brother managed a record store in Montreal - which paved the way for many a musical style to be heard throughout the house.
To show you how intent little Nancy's heart was - at TEN - her dance instructor invited the class to perform any piece that they desired. While classmates chose the latest Pop offerings, Nancy selected Stan Getz's "Reflections." Can you just see them stopping in their tracks? Hah!
At 18, a sound engineering student asked Nancy if she would record a Jazz standard for his final. Unknown to her, he submitted her voice to "Downbeat" Magazine - who recognized the teenager publicly for her intonation and interpretation. So, you might figure that Nancy Lane's future would be bright. And it IS. She has done radio jingles, soundtracks, and has been the station ID voice for the now CKLX in Canada.
We'll talk about Nancy's songwriting, too, for sure - and this wonderful debut. "Let Me Love You" is peppered with the kind of songs that we heard growing up - in a whole new way :-D You'll LOVE Nancy Lane!

Every album I have done recently had been different from the others and that is because I like yo gom in and record what6ever bI am feeling at the moment. I am fortunate that my songwriting career has given me the freedom to do that."
