Episode 280 - Russell Sinclair

Today's guest is UK musician Russell Sinclair! I recently called over to Plymouth to speak with him about his brand new debut album "Bought & Sold." It is a fantastic collection of songs, two of which are featured with this episode. Russell draws his inspiration from many styles of music. I first saw him online and checked out his website. I bought all of his music within minutes! He is the kind of artist that can instantly inspire you. I am also featuring songs from his Plymouth Tapes EPs so that you can discover his work at the same pace that I did. After you listen, I highly encourage you to buy the rest and support this talented singer/songwriter. He is also known for his energetic live performances. Search for him on YouTube and see what you're missing! Learn more at http://russellsinclair.co.uk/ and http://russellsinclair.bandcamp.com/. If you reach out to Russell, please let him know that you heard him here first. Enjoy!

Episode 279 - Judy Chaikin

My guest today is Judy Chaikin! She is the Writer/Producer/Director of "The Girls in the Band." It is out now on DVD and VOD. I LOVED this movie. It was so exciting to have been given the opportunity to speak with Judy about it and feature her story of how the project came together. It is a documentary that details the journey of female jazz musicians from the 1930's through today. I am a huge fan of music, and thought I knew most of the highlights of 20th century musical history. I was wrong. This was an entire branch of the musical family tree that I was not aware of. The ladies featured here had to endure a career full of racism, sexism, and segregation...all while being world class musicians and entertainers. Their story may have been completely forgotten if not for the efforts of Judy and other likeminded film makers. We learn more about the past through interviews with the musicians, and a something about ourselves when we see the effect that prejudices and certain laws can have on people. To call it "compelling" isn't enough. It held me from start to finish and left me with the desire to learn more. One of the bands that Judy featured was "The International Sweethearts of Rhythm." I tracked down a few of their recordings and have included them with this episode. Learn more and buy your own copy of the movie at www.thegirlsintheband.com, and learn more about Judy at www.onestepproductions.com. When you reach out to Judy, please let her know that you heard her here first. Enjoy!

Episode 278 - Luke Wade

My guest today is musician Luke Wade! Many of you know him from Season 7 of "The Voice." One of his performances caused Adam Levine to stand on his chair! We talked about his time on that hit show, as well as his life before and after the time that he spent there. Luke also told me about his recent tour and his plans to record a new album in 2016. He currently has a PledgeMusic Campaign which allows you to contribute towards the creation of the album. Learn more at http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/lukewade and visit him at his website www.lukewademusic.com. Three of Luke's songs are featured with this episode, including his cover of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" where he duets with Mia Z. If you reach out, please let Luke know how much you enjoyed his appearance on this show. Enjoy!
