    The ultimate soul crooner, Oakland, California native Lenny Williams possesses one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music.  With his rich, passionate vocal style, he is rightfully regarded as one of R & B's most influential soul men.  Williams began his musical career making records that have subsequently become R & B and Pop classics, tunes like the mega-hit "Cause I Love You" (recorded on his solo album) and "So Very Hard To Go," which he recorded as the lead singer for Tower of Power.  Lenny Williams' style has transcended into the new millennium, influencing many of today's newest R & B and Pop vocalists.

    Special Guest, Musician - Aris

    in LGBT

    "I am hard at work on my 3rd full length album "Pulse", and uplifting journey of love and life. I'm making an album that will touch you and inspire you and resonate with all your emotions. The album is a mixture of dance, rock, soul and world sounds... tribal beats, soaring hooks, entrancing guitars, lush strings and bubbling synths .  I want this album to be a soundtrack for the passions of your life. I also hope for "Pulse" to feature several notable guests vocalists - amazing powerhouse vocalists who have touched your hearts and made your bodies move on the dance floor. 


    I've started recorded basic tracks for the album, and I will utilize this crowd-sourcing campaign to finish the instrumentation on these recordings, and give them extra layers of dimension with live string arrangements and supporting vocals. This is my second time as executive producer on an album, and based on the success and critical acclaim of my last release "Twilight Revival", I am certain I can deliver my best material ever.  With your help, we can bring this music to the world!


    I was raised by a single mom who always taught me to dream big. She herself had toured in the 1960's and 1970's as a belly dancer. She taught herself how to dance, how to sew, and sewed all her own costumes. She taught me how to be brave. She taught me how to love. She taught me that love could change the world... that it could move mountains!


    This new album "Pulse" is all about love. Falling in love, Loving yourself, Loving Life, and I can't wait to share it with you all!" - from Aris.

    The Week In Reviews - The Mangoes

    in Music

    Today on the program I will be talking to Tim Morse of the the Mangoes. They have just released their self titled debut almum and it is fair to say that it is an absolute delight. While most artists love to stick in a particular genre these guys know no bounds. Are they 60's pop, 70's prog, 80's rock? I don't know. But they sure are fun to listen to. Please joinus and listen in for what I am sure is going to be an interesting interview, we will also be playine some tracks from the album.


    The Mangoes first album is really a rock opera and we've used different genres of music, instrumental interludes and guest musicians/vocalists to help tell the story. While the story takes a serious turn at the end we want the listeners to know that the whole thing is very tongue in cheek. It's just a story and no Mangoes were hurt in the making of it!

    Will and Thunder Welcome MindMaze

    in Rock Music

    Our first guests of 2015, MindMaze are a promising band like no other. Hailing from Allentown, Pennsylvania the four-piece band are relatively young, but have honed their craft with over one-hundred gigs, including sharing the stage with metal mainstays such as Saxon, Primal Fear, Overkill, George Lynch, Doro, Fozzy, Raven, Jon Oliva’s Pain, Circle II Circle, and others as well as being selected from hundreds of entries to open for Mötley Crüe in May 2013.

    Vocalist Sarah Teets displays both power and range in her vocal work, which maintains a cleanness that still has grit when it needs to. Her vocal style and attitude immediately set her apart from the stockpile of dime-a-dozen female vocalists on the metal scene today, calling to mind a soaring, melodic, and powerful style akin to greats such as Bruce Dickinson, Ronnie James Dio, and Russell Allen. Matched with the impressive yet tasteful playing of the rest of the band (including brother Jeff Teets on guitars and keyboards, Kalin Schweizerhof on drums, and Symphony X’s Mike LePond on bass) and an exciting live performance to boot, MindMaze are winning audiences over with every show and every listen of their music. It’s only a matter of time until the rest of the world takes notice.

  • Carlito live on MRTR

    in Pop Culture

    New Years Special!


    Hosts: Jamel, Derrick Dwayne and Flash Gotti


    #MyRealTalkRadio Interviews Singer/Actor: Carlito


    25 year old Carlito Olivero hails from the windy city of Chicago, Illinois. Singing in English and Spanish from the age of 5, he had aspirations of making singing and performing his career.


    In 2007 responding to a Craigslist ad, Carlito auditioned for a lead vocalist role for the Latin Pop group Menudo. Later that year, an MTV reality television series titled Making Menudo premiered with 15 contestants competing to land a slot in the new band. Besides a return to the original name, this 2007 lineup would be the first to live under the new age cap of 20. Carlito Olivero, along with 4 other latin hopefuls were formed as the new Menudo with an album planned for release in the fall. Signed to Sony Music, the group toured in support of their debut singles “Lost” and “More Than Words”. The group disbanded the following year and Carlito relocated to Los Angeles to continue to pursue his singing career and move into the acting arena.


    Upon his arrival to Los Angeles, Carlito was tapped as a lead in Mario Van Peebles directed teen based film entitled “We The Party” (released 2012) and years later in 2013 auditioned for the Hit Tv show “X Factor” on fox. Ending the competition as a TOP 3 finalist and becoming one of the first latino contestants to ever participate on the show, Carlito has walked away with fans hearts worldwide.


    With 2 major films hitting theaters in 21015, Carlito is continuing to grow on both his acting and songwriting skills, while collaborating with numerous industry pros. His Urban based Rhythmic Pop flavored with occasional Spanish language have created a unique sound which sets him apart from the male vocalists in the current pop/r&b landscape.
