    Jj Thames, Sugar Brown, Polly O'Keary & COUCH KID NEW MUSIC Tweed Funk

    in Music

    J.J. Thames was raised in a blue-collar family.


    J.J. began performing at the tender age of 9 years old, and became a blues- shouting banshee by the time she was just 18 years old.


    She cut her teeth after moving down to Jackson, MS. Where she began to perform with the celebrated "Chitlin' Circuit superstars like; Marvin Sease.  


     J.J. and I will explore her roots and check out tunes from her album, Tell You What I Know.


    Ken Chester "Sugar Brown" Kawashima was born in Bowling Green Ohio.


    His attachment to the Blues came while he studied at the University of Chicago by day and prowled the blues clubs at night, backing artists such as Taildragger and "Big Eyes" Smith.


    He now lives in Toronto, and his latest album is entitled Sugar Borwns Sad Day and Sugar and I will chat about his journey to where he is today while we listen to tunes from the album.


    Polly O'Keary began playing music in bars in Mexico at 16, and after a early rock career that included a record deal, she fell in love with blues at 28. 


    She was first named Washington Blues Society Female Vocalist of the Year in 2004, and has won it twice more since then. 


    Her first and second albums were well-reviewed, and the second was named Album of the Year by the WBS, and Polly was named Songwriter of the Year.


    She spent time touring with Too Slim & The Taildraggers and is now back in the Northwest with a new trio. Polly and I will discuss her career and listen to songs from her latest, Compass.


    Tweed Funk originally came to The Couch back in April of 2012.  They return with their new album, First Name Lucky and we will find out what the band has in store for 2014 while we listen to cuts form the album.

    Tweed Funk & Boy Wells Sit On The Couch

    in Music

    The band Tweed Funk earned their way to the 2012 IBC by way of the Grafton Blues Society.  Not bad for a band together for less than a year.
    Their debut album, Bringin It brought the band huge recognition and airplay. 
    Joseph "Smokey" Holman on vocals, JD Optekar on guitar, Marcus "MG" Gibbons on drums, Eric Madunic on bass and Jon Lovas on Sax are the core of Tweed Funk.
    They have a new album dropping the week they are on the show entitled Love Is and we will be playing cuts from it on the show as we chat with the guys.
    Then Boy Wells will make his trip to The Couch after having to reschedule his first appearence.
    Wells is a veteran of the southern rock scene that was rooted in the geographical and multi-stylistic pocket around the nation’s capital, who now resides in the artistically fertile hills of Central Texas.
    His album Blue Skies Calling is a collection of sweet tuneage.
    Boy has had some difficult times in his life and we will explore how they shape his music and where he is headed in his career.

    I AM A SUPERWOMAN PRESENTS: FINANCES WITH FUNK

    in Finance

    Trisha Funk has been helping individuals and small business owners gain control of their finances and put themselves on the track to succeed financially for over 10 years.


    I live to rock your world.


    I know what you are thinking! “You can’t’ help me. I’ve got some serious debt. My finances are out of control….. No seriously, I AM in debt.”


    I have worked with families that are literally a week away from bankruptcy, who turned their lives around. (Often within months!) You do have the power to transform your finances and your life. And I can help. I personally live a life that backs up the fact that you can achieve your wildest dreams by living very deliberately in a way that involves daily actions that reinforce what you really want out of life.


    My foundational approach to helping you unlock the life you have always dreamed of goes WAY beyond budgeting! I’m all about the math but I’m way more about you living a life completely free to be the human being you were created to be!


    I want to maximize your impact on the world around you. I’m so interested in you developing your:  Talent, Personality, Spiritual Gift, Core Values and Experience


    It’s hard to fail in life when you make a decision to do what you were created to do. When you do what you were created to do (with a little direction) the finances take care of themselves.


    .I’m all about living a frugal life. I’m all about saving on the “have-to’s” so I can chose to spend freely on the “want-to’s”. And you can too! I can’t wait for you to live a life that is full of living richly every single day!

    CM Radio - Mar 25, 2015 - Thomas D'Arcy, Rebel Hero, Luke Nicholson

    in Music

    Lots to talk about in this episode, with four - yep, four - interviewees.


    Thomas D'Arcy's latest full-length, Fooled You Twice, dropped in early March and since, it's been getting a lot of positive attention. New Canadian Music, for example, said, "Pop craftsman Thomas D'Arcy is at his melodic and catchy best on second solo record Fooled You Twice." Mike chats with Thomas about the album and a lot more.


    Luke Nicholson's Frantic City is his most poignant album to date. Having written the majority of material for this record while touring away from his new born daughter, one can hear the love, and maturity in both his lyrics and delivery. He's also launched an interesting new contest we'll chat about.


    Mike also catches up with Toronto's Rebel Hero, a funk-rock trio with an impressive resume that's taking part in the April 4, 2015 edition of Generation Next Live at the Phoenix.


    Finally, we speak with musician, engineer, producer, and studio owner Mike Saracino about his new initiative, The Globe Series, which takes him around the world to record on-the-rise musicians and spawn international collaborations.
