  • Mark Geary, Dublin-native new tour and Lp to drop in Fall 2015.

    in Pop Culture

    Dublin-native Mark Geary is a celebrated musician who began his career more than 20 years ago. In 1992, Mark bought a one-way ticket to New York City and spent several years playing the local circuit in the East Village which included numerous appearances at the acclaimed Sin-é cafe with other upcoming artists including friend Jeff Buckley. Mark is described as a "quintessential singer-songwriter" and his records have been hailed as encapsulating both boisterous joy and gentle, delicate moments that endear themselves to the listener and evoke comparisons to artists such as Van Morrison, John Lennon, Elliot Smith and Richard Thompson. His body of work includes 4 studio albums, 2 live recordings and collaborations with a number of artists including the release in 2013 of a charity version of his song 'Christmas Biscuits' with friend Glen Hansard in aid of St Vincent De Paul, in Ireland. Mark has also lent his talents to the visual arts scoring several films including “Loggerheads” (2005), “Steel City” (2006) and TriBeCa Film Festival “Sons of Perdition” (2010). Touring and performing are Mark's lifeblood and passion, and his finely crafted songs and charismatic storytelling provide his audience with a unique experience on every occasion. Over the last 20 years Mark has toured all over Europe, US & Australia, and has shared the stage with The Swell Season, Glen Hansard, The Frames, Josh Ritter, Bell X1, Coldplay, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders & Joe Strummer. Mark has recently competed tours in Switzerland and Germany, including a headline spot on the critically acclaimed “Songs from Ireland: Old and New” tour. Dates in Switzerland, Ireland and New York are also planned in which Mark will be road testing songs from his forthcoming 5th album, released in Autumn 2015.?

    Breaking the Chains.....Our Lives, Our Pain Re-Imagined

    in Motivation

    The "I have a dream speech by Martin L.King debuted in Detroit over fifty years ago on June 23, 1963 and changed the course of this nation, and re-imagined what was possible. Born that same year on July 23rd, I recently celebrated my 52nd Birthday, and realize that my life has been engulfed inside the Civil Rights, and parallels closely with the transformation I endured causing me to re-imagine the little black girl born in 1963 also,


    Today we are sharing about the healing that must occur between these two cultures that caused such strong divisional lines of hatred, distrust, and pain merely based on skin tone. Although our nation has become much more diverse and Civil Rights are being fought for so many more, we still have a core pain in cities across the nation that still reek with the racial tension of the past.


    Today, let's look at racial reconciliation and find ways to re-imagine ourselves, our cities and our nation.


    What's possible for us today should we have dialogue about the pain we have both experienced? Our featured guest, poet and author Alicea Davis has a special message for healing our communities and racial reconciliation. Join me as she shares what she has re-imagined for us here in Detroit, and the work she's doing to close the gap in our consciousness so we see ourselves anew - as citizens of the same family. May we all remember our Divine heritage, our spiritual birthrights, and co-creative powers for creating a miraculous world.


    Let's re-imagine our self-image, re-create our belief in everyone's worthiness, and choose to live in excellent communities that flourish abundantly with knowledge, intelligence and resources to be self-sustaining.

    Celebrated Musician on Healing Self Care: Recovery Now with Kim Justus

    in Education

    Bill Protzmann is a man on a mission: to raise awareness of the power of music as self care.


    On  Memorial Day weekend 2007 Protzmann premiered a new version of his one man show, Connected!, with a focus on using music as a self intervention tool for issues related to military service. In 2011, he launched Music Care Inc, a for profit corporation dedicated to providing education in music as adjunct treatment for post traumatic stress, depression, and anxiety.


    Bill holds magna cum laude degrees in piano performance and creative writing, and has concertized and performed for many years with a focus on bringing music to audiences in non-traditional ways. His recording of “Amazing Grace” topped the mp3.com charts in July of 2000, and he has released two all-original CDs. He has performed and worked with opera stars, poets, Dixieland, jazz, rock and pop tribute bands, in musical theatre, and as a solo concert pianist and entertainer.


    Recovery Now is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."


    We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers. The front portion of show is our featured guest, the second is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!

    Should Single Motherhood Be Celebrated?!

    in Women

    On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, join us as we look to find ::ANSWERS:: to the question of whether single motherhood is over celebrated. We will discuss why some single mothers wear their single motherhood as a badge of honor. 


    We will also discuss comments made by New York Times columnist David Brooks who has a problem with single mothers blaming them for their own poverty. He goes on to say...


    "There is a very strong correlation between single motherhood and low social mobility. There is a very strong correlation between high school dropout rates and low mobility. There is a strong correlation between the fraying of social fabric and low economic mobility. There is a strong correlation between de-industrialization and low social mobility. It is also true that many men, especially young men, are engaging in behaviors that damage their long-term earning prospects; much more than comparable women.


    Low income is the outcome of these interrelated problems, but it is not the problem. To say it is the problem is to confuse cause and effect. To say it is the problem is to give yourself a pass from exploring the complex and morally fraught social and cultural roots of the problem. It is to give yourself permission to ignore the parts that are uncomfortable to talk about but that are really the inescapable core of the thing."
