    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Trumpeter/Vocalist Bria Skonberg!

    in Music

    Have mercy, this powerful woman from Chilliwack, BC, is on fire!  Bria Skonberg is her name - with ancient Swedish heritage and Dixieland in her veins.  Trumpeter, Vocalist, Composer, Bandleader and benevolent contributer to the community. Ten percent of the proceeds from her 2012 release, "So Is the Day", has benefitted The Jazz Foundation of America.  

    So - with that knowledge - it comes as no surprise that good things are coming Bria's way.  When one GIVES like that, they usually do :)  This award-winning artist knew early in life that she wanted to play the trumpet.  There she was, her first professional gig at 16, singing and blowing that horn - and blowing the audience AWAY!  She hasn't looked back since then - having played at countless Jazz festivals around the world, both as bandleader and guest   In 2010, Bria moved to New York City and there was an instantaneous connection.  She had headlined at Birdland, Cafe Carlye, Dizzy's and The Iridium.  

    Those that she has met in her fascinating journey have been significant.  Wycliffe Gordon has been one of those with whom Bria has felt kinship - and they have been involved in each other's projects.  The Jazz Journalists' Association and Downbeat Magazine Critics' Poll have taken notice of the incredible creativity of this gifted musician - and have publicly acknowledged their admiration.  Bria is the recipient of The New York Bistro Award for "Outstanding Jazz Artist."  Once you hear her previous effort and her latest CD, "Into Your Own", you'll HEAR why.  Combining her love of classic Jazz with World percussion, Soul and electronic effects, Bria delves into a different zone than anyone you'll hear.  SO different that she had actually staged an event combining Jazz and Stand-up :)

    Our VERY cool guest joins us on 6/12 at two p.m.

    Center of Light Radio Show with guest Rod Roddy of LeRoux

    in Spirituality

    Center of Light Radio Show with host, Keith Anthony Blanchard 

    Show Topic: I will speaking with Rod Roddy of Louisiana's LeRoux.

    In 1978 a rock group was formed out of the Levee Band. They were best-known for songs like  "Nobody Said It Was Easy" or "Lookin' For the Lights" (their highest charting single), "Addicted," "Carrie's Gone," "Take a Ride On a Riverboat" with its 4-part a capella intro and the regional smash "New Orleans Ladies."

    Their early music, combined many elements such as funk, R&B, Dixieland jazz, rock, and some Cajun flavoring, thus defying a pigeonhole into one definable category, like many other diverse Louisiana artists common to an area known for its many musical influences and tastes. After recording the album Up in 1980, they became a noteworthy exponent of the developing AOR sound. 

    Born in Houma, Louisiana, (a renowned pianist), Rod Roddy was a huge inspiration in the music of his band. His funky rhythm and incredible improvisation skills were a key ingredient in the musical textures that gave Louisiana's LeRoux its unique sound.

    Holly Stephey and RJ Comer" Porch Songs"

    in Pop Culture

    RJ Comer is a classically trained singer and composer .  Now he’s the banjo-wielding front man and primary songwriter of the roots rock show band, Dance Hall Pimps , & is branching out with an acoustic Americana solo project "Porch Songs"..  As a signed recording artist, singer, songwriter, and lyricist RJ’s music is fueled by a strong belief that there will always be an audience for good songs in the great Mid-Twentieth Century American musical genres as well as for contemporary songs inspired by that material. In 2009, RJ launched his first band the Dance Hall Pimps. In 2012, the Dance Hall Pimps released their debut LP, Beast for Love.  RJ wrote & co-wrote 8 of the 10 original songs on the debut LP, including the rockabilly single “Mommy Was A Zombie” and the big band/New Orleans throw-back and title cut “Beast For Love”.  RJ’s fusion of classic Dixieland jazz, bluegrass, and rock & roll styles on plectrum banjo caught the attention of Deering Banjo Company who have included him among Deering’s sponsored artists.  RJ and the Dance Hall Pimps are currently recording their follow-up to Beast For Love.With the Dance Hall Pimps, RJ is a physical showman and singer, belting out their songs above the band’s drums, guitars, organ, and horn section.  But RJ gets to explore his a quieter side on his solo Porch Songs project an acoustic mash-up of New Orleans jazz, country, soft ballads, Americana, swamp, blues, and acoustic rock.  With the Porch Songs project, RJ shows his softer side on acoustic Americana ballads .In addition to the recently-released first installment of six Porch Songs, RJ will go back in the studio and record traditional blues, country, acoustic rock & some covers for the next set of Porch Songs.  RJ will again return to his family’s music on a forthcoming jazz collaboration with DHP saxophonist, Steve Carr.
