Kori’s saga is filled with a love affair for music. Kori grew up with 100% hearing loss in her left ear, which has not stopped her from pursuing her musical career. She is a classically trained pianist, and composes all of her music. Kori’s song “Carpe Diem – Featuring Aeone” won the 2012 Independent Music Award for Best New Age Song. Kori’s album “Trillium” was nominated Zone Music Reporters 2009 Awards “Album of the Year” and “Best Contemporary Instrumental Album”. Lately, she has been diagnosed with a vocal disorder, which has stopped her from singing, however, she still can “sing” with her fingers using her main instrument, the piano. Kori lives in Southern California with her husband, 4 children, a cat, dog, bunny and her eyes are midnight blue.
“Kori Carothers is, without question a brilliant pianist and composer. What sets her apart, however, is the broad range of styles she utilizes so gracefully. Kori moves between the worlds of achingly beautiful acoustic piano composition and lavish keyboard production with remarkable ease. The result “Trillium”, a cohesive collection of compositions of stunning breadth and dynamic range, confidently held together by her singular musical voice. ~Will Ackerman, Windham County, VT May 2009

RICKY “FREEZE” SMITH BIO:
Ricky D. Smith (was born March 25, 1960) is an American musician, songwriter, and producer. He was reared in a Christian home at an early age, where music became and inevitable part of his future. At the age of five Ricky discovered his talent on drums, which later branched into other interest in the piano, organ and bass guitar.
Ricky made his debut at 7 years old, where he began playing drums in church along side with his mother who was a great pianist, organist, and choir director, which lead himalso to play with Billy Preston for concerts in church.
Ricky’s Music Career began at the age of seventeen where he went on tour playing drums and keyboards for the pop singing group (The Sylvers). This thrilling experience ranged from Concert Halls, State Fairgrounds, to Stadiums filled with screaming fans that every aspiring musician dreams of… This connection with the group prompted extensive collaborations with Leon Sylvers for several Albums he was producing, at that time was asked to play keyboards for Solar Recording group (Dynasty), and this is where songwriting and producing records began.
Ricky was introduced to Morris Day in 1985 and played keyboards on the “Color of Success” album. Morris and Ricky went to work putting together the band for the Tour, and they hit the road to sold out shows all over the country. Ricky and Morris also put together an all girl band signed to Warner Bros. called (The Day Zs) too. They still hit the road every year as Morris Day and The Time!!!

In the ten years that yours truly has been in Baltimore (this time around!), there are some significant talents that stand out. And always will. Some of the musicianship has been more than stellar. Let's call it haunting. And that is the case with the voice of Kristin Callahan.
Singing since she could speak, the vocal ability that Kristin has is worn like a second skin. She's comfortable singing - and it doesn't matter what genre. Though her golden throat lends itself naturally to Jazz and the Great American Songbook. And one wonders what's in Kristin's future - because if this is the beginning of her career and she's so good NOW - have mercy - what the heck else should we expect?!
Encouraged by both church and school early on, our Maryland Girl found herself in Washington, D.C. Under the tutelage of respected pianist and educator, Vince Evans. Vince was able to steer Kristin in a direction that felt both comfortable and challenging. And that challenge is something that she relishes. Her first project dropped in 2009, "A New Love." Last year, we heard the evolving bliss of Kristin with "One Magic Day." Some of the best in Baltimore and D.C. joined her on these 14 songs. Including Warren Wolf on vibraphone - and Vince Evans (of course!) on piano :)
Kristin's got an amazing opportunity to shine on 12/21/14. She's at the Chesapeake Arts Center - the same place where we last saw Jeffrey Osborne. She'll dip into both of her albums, some holiday tunes (no doubt!), and possibly give us a sneak preview of her forthcoming CD - which takes her into a new direction. 2015 should be QUITE interesting for our guest!
What a pleasure to share Kristin with you again - we had a lot of fun the first time that she visited! 12/16 at 3 p.m. Eastern - join us :)
This week's set of of shows have been special - and we're wrapping it up with a big red bow on 12/11! Eric Byrd kicks off the one p.m. Eastern hour with his enthusiasm for a big show on Saturday. That's at the Eubie Blake Cultural Center in Baltimore - with special guests Delandria Mills (flute) and Jeff Antoniuk (sax). The Eric Byrd Trio will perform songs from their popular "Charlie Brown Christmas." :)
Eric has been a respected pianist in this region - and beyond - for three decades! He has been an in-demand leader AND sideman (over 15 musical projects as a guest star) - and has served as State Department Ambassador for multiple countries. The depth of his work can be heard in the aforementioned 2009 release - and also in "21st Century Swing: Live" that was recorded at a popular Jazz Festival last year. A foot firmly in the past with an eye on the future of Jazz - this is why so many appreciate him!
The award-winning Deanna Bogart joins us after Eric. Born in Detroit, but spent early years in Arizona and New York - and surfaced in the D.C. area - where this radio host met her. While she was a key member of the band, Cowboy Jazz :-D At six, Deanna was kicked out of music school because she chose to play piano by ear as opposed to chart. She has been rebelling ever since! Refusing to believe that "girls don't play saxophone", she gravitated and mastered the instrument - and became a hellacious songwriter along the way. Over 20 Wammies to her name and the respect of international audiences - which includes eager children (many of them special needs) - who she LOVES to teach. A featured figure in The Rhythm and Blues Revue (Magic Dick, Tommy Castro), Deanna SHINES most as Band LEADER. What a show! Please join us in The Chat Room on 12/11!
WE ARE TWIN..

The group just finished their debut album called "xtra love" release this November, blazing a trail for a punk rock, soul & Pop aesthetic that stood out immediately.

LA-based three-man band, Willodean, chronicles longing, loneliness, and lost loves, Willodean is Dan Barrett, Eric Holden and Randy Wooten. They have just released their self-titled debut album about people as afraid of finding love as losing it. With Dan Barrett’s gravelly baritone, Eric Holden’s upright bass that resonates with sturdy, near-ancient melodies and guitarist/pianist Randy Wooten’s lyrics the evoke a dreamy world of misgiving and missed chances. We won't miss the cahnce to ask them about it this Friday.
