You did not know I adore him?  Now you do...Join us Sunday as I sit a spell and get nosey with the wonderful wonderful Kevin Sandbloom....


     


    Kevin Sandbloom is a man who knows a little bit about rebirth and new beginnings. Throughout his career, he has continually reinvented himself. First he was a member of cover bands and then he did an extended stint with the popular Southern California band The Congregation. But, perhaps his most intriguing transformation has been as a traveling solo artist who wows crowds from Boston to St. Louis to his native Los Angeles.

    Seven full-length albums and an EP under his belt, he is currently touring and promoting his latest recording, STILL BLUE [Sandbloom sings Joni], a complete cover of Joni Mitchell’s Blue. He has performed on stages as diverse as Poetry N Motion in London, England to Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York to Berklee College of Music in Boston to B.B. King's Blues Club in Los Angeles and is a fixture at music and poetry venues across the U.S. He brings a fresh sound to an industry weaned on Auto-tune without being retro or dated.


    Regarded as a songwriter at the top of his game, he wrote the title track for Grammy-nominated guitar legend Robben Ford’s Supernatural album. He has also contributed music to many independent films including Laurence Fishburne’s directorial debut, Once in the Life and he had a featured appearance on the ABC Family series “Lincoln Heights.

    The N'Tuned Show Afternoon Mix-Up With Link Music

    in Music

    Before the music of today, there was great R&B. The 90's and early 2000's were filled with what many people call "real R&B" and "great music". Behind many of these classic songs that kept us desiring love and love making, was Link. Lincoln Browder is a successful singer/songwriter hailing from Dallas, TX, that has definitely made a name for himself in the music industry, and continues to put out amazing R&B music that makes the world yearn for the return of the "Real R&B era".


    [Link is the songwriter of many of our favorite R&B songs from the 90s and early 2000s, and the silky voice behind hits, such as "I really wanna sex your body", "I dont wanna see", "Don't run away", and "911-0024".]

    A Conversation with Herb Fame

    in Lifestyle

    Peaches & Herb are an American vocalist duo, once comprising Herb Fame (born October 1, 1942) and Francine "Peaches" Hurd Barker (April 28, 1947 - August 13, 2005). Herb has remained a constant in "Peaches & Herb" since its creation in 1966, while seven different women have filled the role of "Peaches." History: Herb Fame (born Herbert Feemster, October 1, 1942, in Anacostia, Washington, D.C.), sang in church and neighborhood groups as a child. After graduation from high school, he worked in a local record store where he met record producer Van McCoy and was signed to Columbia subsidiary Date Records by McCoy and A&R executive Dave Kapralik. Francine "Peaches" Barker (born Francine Edna Hurd, April 28, 1947, in Washington, D.C.), using the stage name Francine Day, started a singing trio initially dubbed The Darlettes and later renamed The Sweet Things after a change of record label to Date Records. Having produced two releases for the trio, McCoy decided to record Feemster/Fame and Hurd/Day together at Kapralik's suggestion. The resulting single, "We're in This Thing Together," was distributed to radio stations but went nowhere for months until December 1966, when a St. Louis disc jockey broadcast the single's B-side, a revival of the 1934 hit "Let's Fall in Love." The new duo, christened "Peaches & Herb," had a string of successful singles and albums over the next two years such as "Let's Fall in Love," "Close Your Eyes," "For Your Love," and "Love Is Strange."

    From The Desk of Kiler Davenport Presents: KD Live - Interview with Billy Grima

    in Music

    Billy Grima is a singer/ songwriter living in the Caledon Hills of Ontario, Canada. Born in Blacktown, NSW Australia, Billy started writing at a very young age and was singing in a church choir by the age of 8 years old. At 15, Billy moved to Canada and settled in Toronto. Like classic singer/songwriters, Billy Joel, Jim Croce, James Taylor and Bob Dylan, life's daily realities and everyday events are a source of Billy's inspiration. His smooth and soulful sound has earned him comparisons to contemporaries Jason Mraz, Ed Sheeran, Jack Johnson and even Bruno Mars.


    Billy has 3 albums to his credit: I'm Just Standing , A Little Piece Of Heaven and his latest, titled Sugar & Cream, produced and engineered by Pete Swann (Glass Tiger’s Alan Connely, Adrian and Justin Lifeson, sons of Rush’s Alex Lifeson.)  Sugar & Cream features a tasty blend of pop, rock, soul and Americana, including the first single, “Pleasure To Have Met You.”  The album is going for worldwide radio adds this spring.


    "Writing a hook or humming a melody is medicine,” Grima says.  Let Sugar & Cream be the prescription for your perfect playlist.

    CM Radio - Apr 22, 2015 - Joel Plaskett & More

    in Music

    Welcome! We're stoked to have Joel Plaskett back on the show, this time discussing his most recent release, Joel Plaskett & The Park Avenue Sobriety Test. It touches on his solo acoustic side, his guitar rock work with the Emergency, his happy-go-lucky rhyming talents, carefree memories of growing up in Nova Scotia, and a little bit of anger at the forces making life tougher these days. There are many moments that draw on previous classic Plaskett, from beloved albums such as Three and Ashtray Rock, right back to his Thrush Hermit days. And there are new sides to his sounds as well – Joel like you’ve never heard him.


    Of course, we'll also have our Canadian Spotlight Song of the Week, which comes to us courtesy of Kaylan Mackinnon.

    Cruzita Carrillo with Boyd and Lucinda

    in Lifestyle

    Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, “Cruz” has been a triple threat in the entertainment industry by having experience of performing as a Singer, Actress and a Model. As a young girl she would play endlessly her mother’s classic albums, with the dream of being on stages and performing in front of live audiences. She continued to feed her passion for singing by following the examples of past influences like Selena & Mary J. Blige. “Cruz” has trained with top vocal coach Seth Riggs who has also been involved with many other mainstream Artists and has helped them succeed in the industry. “Cruz” has been signed previously to 2 independent record labels and 1 major record label (Universal's "Bungalow Records"), as well as having been part of multiple advertising projects including billboards, print ads, commercials and countless magazine covers. She also makes it a priority to be involved with charity work in the Latin community and raising awareness for campaigns such as anti-bullying, women rights and domestic violence. -- The real worth of “Cruz” is much more than all of these things mentioned above. Her true strength lies in her character, hard work and determination to be a positive influence to others to not give up in chasing their dreams while helping others along the way. Her journey so far has not been easy, but she will certainly show that her current and future pending projects in collaboration with “Tambora Records International” (Tamboramusic.com ) shall make a strong and attractive impact to her listeners.“No matter the dream you have, believe in it; You can do anything you want to do.
