    STEVIE J - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - TUES, DEC 23 , 2014 - 6:00 PM PST

    in Music

    Stevie J. Bio. - Already hailed as the new face of the Delta Blues, Stevie J is well on his way to capturing the crown of Southern Soul as well.


    His guitar skills are nothing short of spectacular. He is a supremely confident vocalist capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric from any genre. Yet Stevie J remains humble and true to his first love. THE BLUES


    Stevie J, the son of pastor and native of Jackson, MS, started his career in the gospel field playing for artist such as the Williams Brothers, The Five Blind Boys of Alabama, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, The Jackson Southernaires and the great Shirley Caesar.


    Stevie J found his true calling when he teamed up with legends such as Bobby Rush, Pat Brown, Denise LaSalle and Shirley Brown. Stevie J recorded with Bobby Rush on the Folk Funk album and is also featured with the Martin Scorsese blues series live at Ground Zero. Stevie J has toured throughout Switzerland and France performing at the Cognac Blues Festival. His talent has also taken him to Spain, Italy, Norway and Belgium.


    Stevie J is a delight to the eyes and ears. He plays what he feels and has fun doing it. Right now Stevie is enjoying the success of his new album 2 Sides OF a Man with the single “Because Of Me”, which is #1 on the Southern Soul chart.


    There can be little doubt that Stevie J  is the undisputed New Face of The Delta Blues (and goodwill ambassador of American Music), for as long as he lives.

    Sovereign Self

    in Self Help

    Featuring Host Martin Campbell and Co-Host Ron Mayer


    Martin Campbell is an author and business executive who is dedicated to helping people improve their lives by assisting them in finding out who they are and who they want to be. From being a councillor to writing about bringing understanding, unity and joy into people’s lives, his focus has always been on people’s core needs. As a dedicated supporter of individual spirituality, Martin believes humanity’s last major hurdle is in achieving individual empowerment and freedom. He knows first-hand that expanding human or individual spiritually is not always easy, nor accepted - no matter who you are. He firmly believes it is through our love and individual paths, that together we will propel humanity to its greatest heights. Yet he recognizes that it has been his life’s traumatic events, which provided him with the opportunity to grow stronger. Martin is grateful for all that has occurred. His joys and sorrows have made him who he is today. He says for that - he is truly thankful.


    Ron Mayer has always been a Spiritual Seeker, or as his elder, Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha puts it, “A Spiritual Archeologist.” He has an interest in ALL things spiritual as well as a love of art and music, and plays the piano and guitar. He loves to “watch people.”


    Ron has come to the realization that self-development is never complete or a finished process, and when our journey of self-discovery begins, it is a forever endeavor from the heart.


    Expect him to bringing fresh, new and at times controversial ideas about Spiritual Ascension, the science and spirituality of the art of bio-regenesis.

    Nell Simmons - R&B Artist 2:15pm


    Phenomenal Singer who has been blazing the scene as of late. One of the most powerful voices in the world this woman will blow you away. If you were to ask Nell who she is and what she contributes to the industry Nell says "I am something of the opposite having come to the industry only recently and largely in isolation." My story is about someone who came to make music later in life and had to do so using modern desktop technology and the internet to produce and promote more out of necessity than anything else. I think I can provide some insights for other emerging artists trying to find their way in the modern music industry.
