    I AM A SUPERWOMAN PRESENTS: FINANCES WITH FUNK

    in Finance

    Trisha Funk has been helping individuals and small business owners gain control of their finances and put themselves on the track to succeed financially for over 10 years.


    I live to rock your world.


    I know what you are thinking! “You can’t’ help me. I’ve got some serious debt. My finances are out of control….. No seriously, I AM in debt.”


    I have worked with families that are literally a week away from bankruptcy, who turned their lives around. (Often within months!) You do have the power to transform your finances and your life. And I can help. I personally live a life that backs up the fact that you can achieve your wildest dreams by living very deliberately in a way that involves daily actions that reinforce what you really want out of life.


    My foundational approach to helping you unlock the life you have always dreamed of goes WAY beyond budgeting! I’m all about the math but I’m way more about you living a life completely free to be the human being you were created to be!


    I want to maximize your impact on the world around you. I’m so interested in you developing your:  Talent, Personality, Spiritual Gift, Core Values and Experience


    It’s hard to fail in life when you make a decision to do what you were created to do. When you do what you were created to do (with a little direction) the finances take care of themselves.


    .I’m all about living a frugal life. I’m all about saving on the “have-to’s” so I can chose to spend freely on the “want-to’s”. And you can too! I can’t wait for you to live a life that is full of living richly every single day!

    in Entertainment

    Simpson’s latest masterwork is the perfect amalgamation of music that is close to his heart – Jazz, R&B, Funk and Soul. Out Of A Dream (Released February 17, 2015) is Simpson’s sixth album as a leader and third recording for Shanachie Entertainment. “When I first embarked on making this album, I was at a point where I felt I had to take my music to a different place,” explains Simpson who enlists nine different co-composers on the album that keep the sound ever-evolving and fresh. “By collaborating with other composers I was able to explore different styles of writing while still maintaining my own vibe.” Out Of A Dream unites Brian Simpson with an all-star cast including saxophonists Najee, Dave Koz and Grace Kelly, guitarists Marc Antoine and Norman Brown, singer Maysa and trumpeter Maurice Brown, Jonathan Fritzen, among others.

    DW3 pays “Tribute” to their late drummer-mentor Ricky Lawson

    in Entertainment

    GRAMMY®-nominated vocalists DW3 are brothers Billy & Eric Mondragon and Damon Reel.  With the release of their highly-anticipated Woodward Avenue Records debut, Southern California’s premiere R&B, funk and contemporary urban jazz powerhouse DW3 lets the world in on a cool “Vintage Truth” paying tribute to their late drummer Ricky Lawson.


     “Vintage Truth” features contributions from a handful of the genre’s superstar performers. Brian Culbertson plays piano on the opening track, the rousing, vocal harmony laden R&B tune “Let The Music.” Paul Brown produced, mixed and contributes his inimitable guitar to “I Can’t Tell You Why,” while Greg Adams lends trumpet and horns to Eric’s original tune “Hold Me,” and Dave Koz infuses his lush sax emotion on “When You Cry.”  Before he passed away, legendary GRAMMY®-winning drummer Ricky Lawson, who performed with DW3 in the final two years of his life, co-produced four of the core tracks on “Vintage Truth” with keyboardist Sean Dancy – including “Dance With Me,” “Overjoyed,” “California Dreamin’” and “When You Cry.”

    CM Radio - Mar 25, 2015 - Thomas D'Arcy, Rebel Hero, Luke Nicholson

    in Music

    Lots to talk about in this episode, with four - yep, four - interviewees.


    Thomas D'Arcy's latest full-length, Fooled You Twice, dropped in early March and since, it's been getting a lot of positive attention. New Canadian Music, for example, said, "Pop craftsman Thomas D'Arcy is at his melodic and catchy best on second solo record Fooled You Twice." Mike chats with Thomas about the album and a lot more.


    Luke Nicholson's Frantic City is his most poignant album to date. Having written the majority of material for this record while touring away from his new born daughter, one can hear the love, and maturity in both his lyrics and delivery. He's also launched an interesting new contest we'll chat about.


    Mike also catches up with Toronto's Rebel Hero, a funk-rock trio with an impressive resume that's taking part in the April 4, 2015 edition of Generation Next Live at the Phoenix.


    Finally, we speak with musician, engineer, producer, and studio owner Mike Saracino about his new initiative, The Globe Series, which takes him around the world to record on-the-rise musicians and spawn international collaborations.
