    A Kind Voice on Music - Jackie Gray

    in Music

    For this show we introduce you to the very talented Jackie Gray. Emerging artist, Jackie Gray, brings a combination of sultry vocals and piano mastery to her debut album, creating a genre all her own.  An authentic singer/songwriter, Gray’s music is a tribute to the vintage-era songstresses of the past. Her soulful yet torch/jazz-inspired voice has a timeless sound that was made for both an antique gramophone and a modern radio.


    A Nashville transplant, Gray ventured from Seattle to the Music City in 2011, originally anticipating breaking into country music. After teaming up with 27-year music veteran and producer, Jim Reilley, she spent the last several years crafting a style that blends decades and genres into one sound.


    With smoky, impassioned singing and an updated nod to the great musical standards, Jackie weaves a tapestry of intelligent lyrics and delightful original ,yet familiar music. Host Mitch Ruth, will ask Jackie about the journey to her unique style, the differences between making music in the Pacific North West and Nashville, and what is coming up in her musical career.  Mitch may also get to ask the fabled question, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it; what is the best beginner piano method book to use with a six-year old?"

    A Kind Voice on Music - The Kissers

    in Music

    Another Kind Voice on Music will feature The Kissers from Madison Wisconsin.  After a six year hiatus the Irish Folk Rock group has reunited to create an all new album "Three Sails"


    The Kissers are known for the frenzied energy of their live shows, their off-kilter humor, and their eclectic instrumentation. Violin, banjo, accordion, and an array of sonic effects combine with diverse musical influences for a unique sound that straddles the gap between indie-rock and Irish music. Audiences and reviewers, trying to describe them, cite bands as varied as the Shins, Pogues, and the Decemberists. The Kissers maintain that they are rock musicians who learned to play Irish music, not vice versa, and so their music sometimes feels more at home in a club than in a pub.


    The Kissers will join host Mitch Ruth and for our show, we will feature some past favorites from the Band, discuss the future, hopefully get a few sneak peeks and find out just what they wear under those kilts (wait, that's Scottish....never mind). I may also ask that eternal question: "If you were a tree what would be your favorite brand of breath mint?"

    A Kind Voice on Books and The Writer's Block

    in Books

    In the first hour on A Kind Voice on Books Jason Lawrence will interview Dr. James Millhouse. Dr. Millhouse is a licensed psychologist out of Atlanta Georgia who provided mental training for sports performance to athletes from the amateur to the professional and Olympic level in almost every sport. He has also been featured on NBC Nightly News during the Olympics as the next breakthrough in athletic training. One of his most recent accomplishments, however, is the publication of a great new book called, The Parents Manual of Sports Psychology: A Practical Guide to Achieving Athletic Success. It’s a great new guide based on Dr. Millhouses years of experience working with athletes of all ages, and it lays out a comprehensive plan for re-training the mechanics of an athlete’s mind so as to ensure they always play at the top of their game.


    In the second hour on  The Writer's Block, Bonnie Marlewski-Probert will interview Cynthia Brewster-Keating and on the topic of FEAR. Fear of publishing, fear of sharing your kind voice, fear of success, fear of failure... FEAR is what holds most people back from living the life they were meant to live and for writers or artists, that fear can be paralyzing. 


    Cynthia just published a book written by her mother when her mother was just a teenager. Sadly, even though her mother was fearless when it came to horses, when it came to publishing her work, she was unable to muster up the courage to do it. However, after her passing in 2009, Cynthia discovered the unpublished manuscript and made it her mission to see her mother's dream become a reality. The book is entitled, Over Hill n' Dale and it tells the story of two tween BFFs who love horses and share adventures over the summer.
