Listen in to Nash Johnson, (Lisa Fischer's #1 Fan), talk about the amazing R&B Vocalist and Songwriter, Lisa Fischer. Lisa is the backup singer for the Rolling Stones and many other bands as well. Her voice will give you goosebumps! Listen in for yourself as we play some of her music in the interview.
The massive success of “Whiskey & Wine Vol. 1” kept the band on the road for the most part of 2014. The first single “That Was The Whiskey”, co-written with Nashville songwriter Lori McKenna (Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Hunter Hayes), premiered on CMT trending in the Top 10 and was nominated in the "Country Song" category at The 13th Annual Independent Music Awards. When the New York based, alt-country female rockers do something, they do it big. Catapulted into the national spotlight in 2005 with a groundbreaking major label debut that landed them in the top 20 of the Billboard Heatseekers chart for an entire year.
Best known for relentless touring and masterful musicianship, the band played upwards of 280 shows a year in their early days. Founding sisters Cathy and Kristen Henderson have always had the same philosophy. Play better than the boys and make sure the fans feel like part of the family. Catchy songs, has allowed this self-sustained group to maintain her independence and leave an indelible mark on an industry best known for leaving girl (bands) behind.
In a business riddled with pitfalls, the fans have been the one thing Antigone Rising count on. Their first independent fan-funded CD (2000's "Rock Album") raised ten thousand dollars via checks through snail mail before the internet ever kicked into high gear. Their fan funded effort for "23 Red" raised quadruple that number, with fan perks including bowling and kickball with the band, private house concerts, and band members making personal happy birthday phone calls. Their latest campaign through PledgeMusic reached 154% of its goal within weeks. The fans are the lifeblood of Antigone Rising and have always been the most critical part of the formula.

No pay, no game - Unprofessional behaviour of artistes chases away major record labels.The '70s,'80s and early '90s were the glory days of Jamaican music, with several of the island's artistes inking record deals with esteemed and internationally acclaimed recording labels, including Island Records, CBS Records, Colombia Records, EMI, Rolling Stones Records, among others. Fast-forward to 2015, one can't help but wonder, where have all the major labels gone?
Veteran entertainment manager Copeland Forbes believes major labels severed ties with Jamaican artistes because of unprofessionalism and a lack of vision. The effect of the anti-Jamaican music campaign led by the homosexual community was also brought under the microscope.
According to the man who has represented icons like Beres Hammond, Gregory Isaacs, The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Ziggy Marley, Sugar Minott, among others, during his career, Jamaican artistes need to be taught proper business ethics and attitude. He also credited Shaggy's success to his ability to make good business decisions.
"Some of these artistes, if you tell them to go overseas to do some promotions, if dem nah get paid, dem nah guh. Mi see me and Shaggy just reach New York from Japan on a 15-hour flight and he received a call saying his song just took off in England and they needed him to make an appearance. The same night, Shaggy took a flight to England and it was free because it's promotion. But some of these artistes won't do that. Dem a guh tell yu sey dem have to go home to eat, and do this and that. So the major labels are there to help us, but we must pull our weight too," he said

Paul Revere and the Raiders: An American Musical Revolution – Part I (1961- 1967 ‘The Classic Years’ ”)
Labeled by Paul Shaffer of The David Letterman Show as “the greatest show band of all time,” Paul Revere and the Raiders became the vanguard of America’s response to the British Invasion with one of the most exciting live shows in the business. Their hits are now seen as bold, unpretentious pieces of '60s rock & roll with a defiant, punk edge, which would become the foundation for the development of punk rock. Although they experienced disappointment when they saw another version of “Louie, Louie” become a national hit, they bounced back to sell records in numbers second only to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones during their three biggest years (1966-1969) while garnering more TV appearances than any other rock ‘n’ roll band from 1965- 1968. Tonight, in Part I, we focus on the years when a band with a Northwest U.S.A. origin grew so highly in popularity that each member’s charm and fame would rival the Beatles with their own fan clubs and constant appearances in every teen magazine.
Our fourth episode will feature a segment on bad bus etiquette (which went missing in action from our previous ep), as well as a glimpse into the dark history of DC Comics and the pulps, commentary on the first incarnation of "Granny's Round Table", an article on the recent evolution of chimpanzees, and a short list of things they DON’T tell you about menopause (but really should). So pull up a twig and a cup of tea, perch in front of the plate of cookies, and help yourself to some piping hot opinions! :)
Ash Fawkes is located in Arkansas and was one of the originators of the "Operation Expose CPS" movement. They began the ball rolling with "Operation Death Eaters", a protest that took place on February 13th. The Stanley Family incident had just happened there in Arkansas, and Ash and others decided to make DCFS the target of the Feb 13th International Day of Protest for Operation Death Eaters.
They started to use the hashtag #OPExposeCPS to promote the event, and it was fairly successful. After that, Ash and another Anonymous member in Mississippi were kicking around ideas, and had the inspiration to report CPS to the FBI as a child trafficking ring. They both laughed and discussed it again, and discussed it again, and in light of the work Nancy Scheafer had started prior to her death, decided it sounded like a great idea. They then talked to some other Anonymous members around the country and decided to launch a nationwide operation.
There existed, in Cananda, a similar movement, and they were already wanting to do the same thing for the Children's Aid Society there. Upon hearing of Ash's group's desire to do a movement like theirs, they contacted them and suggested an "International Day of Protest." Together, they decided on June 5th, because a lot of Anonymous Protest groups do events on the 5th of every month. events like "Remember, Remember the 5th of November..."
Join us at 2 p.m. for Ash and Myself, as we go over our linked causes, and learn more about the man...behind the mask.
