Phoenix-based indie rock band Treasurefruit spikes sultry swing motifs with classic country twang in the name of rock and roll. The quartet is currently recording their first full album "Poisonous Dwellers of the Desert" in an all analog (reel-to-reel tape) format, set for a Spring 2015 release. Featuring singer/songwriter Anamieke Quinn, drummer Ehren Stonner, guitarist Matt Ventre and bassist Brenden McBride.
As a little boy, James was known as Jimmy. He loved to eat Italian food, play with his dog Snoopy and spend time with his best friend Manny.
At the age of 18, he began his career as an Army band musician. He spent three years performing in Japan (where he once greeted Kenny G on a train platform). He now calls himself a musical storyteller. Using music, he shares his story of being molested as a boy and his forgiveness journey. James believes that lack of forgiveness is holding many back financially, spiritually and emotionally from becoming all they were meant to be.
At the age of 30, James began to share this Forgive & Live message to audiences all over the United States and Mexico. James wants to see everyone start his own Forgive & Live journey. In addition to speaking he is a music teacher, a podcaster (The Music Ed Podcast), an author and a recording artist.
James’ mother was on welfare when he was a child. Nobody in his family had been to college. James earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees while working full time and being a parent. He believes in life-long learning.
James married his beautiful high school sweetheart. She has put up with him for 28 years. They have four wonderful kids and the two most beautiful, terrific granddaughters in the universe. They make their home in Colorado Springs, Colorado. One of his life goals is to act his shoe size, not his age.

Really good memories have been made in Baltimore - and you're about to HEAR one of them on 10/23/2014 :) Lionel Lyles has been firmly entrenched in the Charm City music scene for YEARS - even when he was attending North Carolina Central University.
He formed his Quintet back in Morgan State University days - in 2000. The worked that he turned out with his band has been noted in our region and beyond. When "The Nightlife: The September Sessions" arrived on the scene, we were all convinced in town that Lionel was on his way. But, he was intent on education. He wanted no false steps in a journey that he considers both a musical one - and a spiritual one.
His NEW CD "At the Precipice", will re-awaken those Jazz juices in you. Lionel has a way of conveying "the masters" that he reveres in a refreshing way. He's young and hip to the current music scene, but his preference - fortunately for us - is Jazz. Oh, YES, that's what you'll hear on the next "Hybrid Jazz!"
Matter-of-fact, you'll get a sneak preview of Lionel's new work - he's sharing it with us! And what we have in the mix to coincide with our friends's visit: artists from both Baltimore AND Florida. Where the memories have been wonderful - and where the memories WILL BE so! You'll find something that you like - that's a promise.
Join us in The Chat Room at one p.m. Eastern time on 10/23. Lionel drops by in the third hour of the show. It's an exciting time for a good friend - let's celebrate!

Heliosaga- “Towers In The Distance” is the anticipated album rooted deep in European tradition, combining the best elements of power, symphonic, and gothic metal. Drawing comparisons from such bands as Xandria, Delain, and Leaves Eyes.
The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life.
“Towers In The Distance” lyrics are deeply personal, and the primary themes revolve around the state of the world, mortality and the personal struggles that all encounter. Mixed by Michael Hansen (Phonomik, Chainfist) at Phon Studio and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios. Bass guitar tracks were recorded by Chad Novell (Fibonacci Sequence) and a guest guitar solo was performed by Gilbert Pot (Elegy).
Heliosaga was founded in 2010 by Damien Villarreal (keys/guitar) in San Antonio, Texas, soon after joined by Jordan Ames (drums). By September of 2010, the line-up was complete and the first practices were held. The ensuing year would see a five song demo, the first shows and various line-up changes. In 2012, Chelsea Knaack joined as lead vocalist and the band recorded the single “The Light of Ardor”, which was released in January 2013. Shortly before the recorded single was release, the band relocated to Minnesota and continued the writing process.
Originally from Detroit, Lashonda Lester has been working in entertainment in some capacity for over 20 years. She's the creator, star and executive producer of "Weird! True Hollywood Tales", a biography lecture series about strange or mysterious Hollywood tragedies, now in its third season.
Lester also took 3rd place in the 2014 Funniest In Person Austin contest, and has opened for comedy heavyweights such as Earthquake, Rickey Smiley, Kyle Kinane, SNL alumnus Finesse Mitchell, Godfrey, and legendary Grammy Award winning band; Earth, Wind, and Fire!
What else?? She recently made her national television debut for Nickelodeon's NickMom Night Out comedy showcase. When she’s not performing comedy, Lashonda enjoys buying frivolous items on eBay, keeping up with the latest conspiracy theories and spending time with her family.
This week, we're bringing you a special roundtable interview with the artists on the upcoming Bands On The Run Tour - Doc Walker, The Road Hammers, and Blackjack Billy.
Doc Walker is dropping their eighth studio album - appropriately titled The 8th - on Oct. 21st, featuring the already-hit singles "That's How I Like It" and "Shake It Like It's Saturday Night." It's the band's first full-length without longtime member Murray Pulver, so we'll talk about readjusting to life on the road and how the new material will take shape on the stage.
As for the Road Hammers, their record Wheels has been doing well since dropping earlier this year. Frontman Jason McCoy talks about some of the differences between performing as a member of the trio vs. his solo tours and a lot more. Noll Billings, vocalist with Blackjack Billy, also weighs in on the band's experiences in Canada thus far and what they're anticipating for this upcoming run with their friends.
Finally, in CM Academy, we speak with James Boyle, the current executive director of the Halifax Pop Explosoin, who's getting ready for his first run at the helm. The lineup this year features acts like Against Me!, Danny Brown, and our Nov/Dec 2014 cover artists, Zeds Dead. We'll chat about what's going on leading up to this edition and what fans should be looking forward to.

Eliot Lewis (born March 10, 1962) is an American rock, R&B and soul singer, keyboardist, guitarist, bassist, drummer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known for his work with Average White Band (1989-2002) and Hall & Oates (2003-present). Lewis is also an integral part of Live From Daryl's House, a monthly Internet-based show hosted by Daryl Hall that is now carried by several television and cable networks across the United States.Lewis grew up in Norwalk, CT, the youngest of three children, in what he describes as a very musical environment. Although his mother was a classical pianist, Lewis’ first instrument was the drums, which he discovered at age 10. When he was 12 years old, he formed his first band, Take Off, with three childhood friends. The father of Take Off’s bass player worked for several major record labels and was instrumental in exposing young Eliot to many of the artists of the day, including The Who, Elton John, and Alice Cooper. He even arranged a jam session for the boys at his house with Peter Frampton.
In his early 20s, Lewis was introduced to Dan Hartman, a singer, songwriter, and record producer responsible for hits such as "Free Ride," "Relight My Fire," and "I Can Dream About You." Lewis began working with Hartman, collaborating on music for some of the day’s top stars and working on albums like Joe Cocker’s Unchain My Heart and Tina Turner’s Simply the Best.
A few years later, Lewis inked his first publishing deal with Sony Tunes, where he collaborated with many other songwriters, including Porter Carroll Jr. of the band Atlantic Starr. After several years with Sony, Lewis signed with Warner Chappell Music, then produced a number of releases for RCA.
