    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Blues Metal Band Sons Of Texas

    in Rock Music

    There is nothing subtle about Texas. There is a reason why we use the term “Texas-sized” to describe anything in life that’s exaggeratedly large, from posteriors, to bong hits, to jugs of beer. This boldness, naturally, extends to the Lone Star’s musical exports, loud n’ proud legendary artists like ZZ Top, Pantera, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, among many others. Now, firmly in that cocksure lineage, is a mighty bluesy metal band from McAllen, Texas aptly named, Sons Of Texas. The young quintet’s debut, Baptized In The Rio Grande—produced by the iconic Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Crowbar, Chiodos, Hatebreed)—is a Texas-sized portion of power metal grooves, dazzling guitar solos, strip joint/tailgate sing-along choruses, and soulfully charred vocal melodies. Sons Of Texas was spawned in McAllen, Texas, a valley town without the music legacy of Austin or Arlington. Sons Of Texas solidified in 2013 around a lineup of local all stars. The group is Mark Morales, vocals, Mike Villarreal, drums, Nick Villarreal, bass, Jon Olivarez, rhythm guitar, and Jes De Hoyos, lead guitar. Despite being just in their mid 20s, never having recorded an album, and having only existed for about a year, the guys play with seasoned authenticity and fiery brilliance. Baptized In The Rio Grande is an album for raising hell and enduring hard times. The record spans good old bad boy anthems like “Texas Trim” and “Baptized In The Rio Grande,” the stately ballad territory of the haunting “September,” and the dead end job-frustration of “Pull It And Fire.” The standout “Blameshift” showcases the guys have modern rock radio potential without sacrificing heft for hooks.

    PETER BECKETT & RONN MOSS OF THE ROCK BAND "PLAYER"& THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL

    in Entertainment

    Peter Beckett, the triple threat singer, songwriter, and guitarist for the rock band Player, which scored a U.S. #1 hit with “Baby Come Back” and fellow band member and former star of daytime television’s soap THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL as Ridge Forrester, Ronn Moss join Halli at her table Wednesday, January 6, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.


    Born in the Aigburth district of Liverpool, England, Beckett was greatly influenced by seeing the Beatles perform at the famous Cavern Club. At 16, he recorded his first record, “All Night Stand”, with a band called The Thoughts. He moved on to play with other groups before relocating to Los Angeles, ultimately teaming with JC Crowley, Ronn Moss (The Bold and the Beautiful’s chisel-jawed Ridge Forrester), and John Friesen in 1976 to form Player. And that’s just the beginning. He would go on to write for such notable artists as Janet Jackson, Olivia Newton-John, The Temptations and Kenny Rogers as well as for films and television during the 1980s. He joined up with Little River Band in 1989 and toured with them for over eight years.


    Ronn Moss was born and raised in Los Angeles. He grew up surrounded by the theatre, concert, and rock & roll music world. At age 11, he started learning to play the drums, guitar and electric bass. In 1976, he joined PLAYER primarily as bassist and singer. In 1987, Moss was offered the role of “Ridge Forrester” on the then new soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful. He accepted the part, which he played for 25 years, winning fans worldwide.


    Now the babies have come back to their roots — Peter Beckett and Ronn Moss on the road again with Player. They stop by The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, January 5, 3 pm ET for a little reminiscing. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Hard Rock Band Failure Anthem

    in Rock Music

    Failure Anthem get right to the point on their full-length debut album for Razor & Tie, the cleverly titled First World Problems. The Greensboro, NC quintet—JD [vocals], Ryan [bass, backup vocals], Kile [guitar], Zane [drums], and Wil [rhythm guitars]—architect eleven impactful, invigorating, and infectious anthems with hooks so robust that modern bells and whistles just aren’t necessary. It’s a tried-and-true approach that feels timeless as the boys make hard rock hypnotic again. Like a big screen blockbuster you can’t turn away from, they don’t waste any time reaching the climax either… The group began to take shape in the summer of 2013. While working at a local Greensboro studio alongside his friend Drew Fulk and assistant engineer Zane, Kile penned his own music. He spent the day handling recording for everybody from Nightmares to Cane Hill and producing and co-writing with the likes of Motionless In White, while nights were devoted to a new project with Zane, Wil, and Ryan. After watching a Facebook video of JD covering Matt Anderson’s “Coal Mining Blues,” Kile reached out to the vocalist. “Failure Anthem has an underdog meaning,” says Kile. “It’s the outlier concept. The person who is allegedly not built to succeed is actually the one who comes out on top. That message is in the music.” For Failure Anthem, it’s all about sharing that uplifting message via the songs in the end. “I’d like for people to gain inspiration, knowledge, and strength when they listen to Failure Anthem,” JD concludes. “It’s meant to push you through the day.” That’s the point of all great rock music…For more information, visit www.failureanthem.com
