Hey there Tea Sippers! We are going to read all of the tea leaves on this one as we have been waiting for a sign that music was going to return to telling stories and being the voice for those who can't put it the words or the groove together to tell what's on their hearts. For many of us, our teenage years were full of songs that really expressed how we were feeling and dealing with life at that time and my guest today is the founding member of one of those groups that spoke to and for us......
When SURFACE hit the scene with "Shower Me with Your Love", "Happy", "Closer Than Friend" and the many other jewels that become our language, this man was the creative force behind it.....and now this man and the crew is about to RESURFACE and let the magic begin again as our language is more sophisticated, experienced, and wiser! Mr. David Pic Conley will be Dishing Tea with Big Meach about the journey from then til now. We will get into the psyche of the business from the musician's standpoint and not just the vocalist.
This is going to be a Wonderfully, Delicious Hot Pot of tea for your nerves, darling so make sure you have plenty of crumpets!!

After Copeland left the group in 1984 Bernard Jackson and David Townsend replaced her by becoming the Surface we know today. More success came in 1985 when Conley became a staff writer for Screen Gems BMI. Shortly after in 1986 Surface landed a record deal with Columbia leading them to release their debut album in 1987.

Jill Brzezinski-Conley was diagnosed with Stage IIIC invasive breast cancer one day before her 32nd birthday on July 15th 2009 – just 6 months after she married the man of her dreams. Her journey began with the most progressive form of treatment available. Jill’s treatment included 16 rounds of grueling chemotherapy, 31 rounds of radiation and 4 surgeries including a double mastectomy with additional surgery ahead. During her treatment she suffered a broken rib and endured serious complications after her reconstructive surgery. Her strength and determination proved pivotal, and after 2 years Jill was in remission and now considers herself a survivor. Unfortunately 12 months later Jill found out she had developed bone cancer and at 35 years old, the prognosis is terminal. Through all of this, Jill has kept her wit, determination, and never ending smile, with no room for self pity, while frequently making jokes about her baldness, lack of eyebrows and eyelashes. Her sense of humor, courage, positive attitude and inner beauty is truly remarkable. Anyone who has ever met Jill will tell you that she leaves you with a lasting impression. The room lights up upon her arrival. In September 2012, Jill’s best friend Nikki Closser reached out to world acclaimed portrait photographer Sue Bryce. Sue was so overwhelmed with Jill’s story and the message she wanted to share with the world, that she was instantly determined to help this beautiful girl spread that message. Sue arranged for Nikki and Jill to meet her in Paris where she would photograph Jill, capture her incredible beauty and help to tell her story to inspire others and educate the world about Breast Cancer.
