Temple of Switches very unique





 Temple of Switches is from the Central Coast of California. The core members, Kevin McConnell(keys and vocals), Jay Heffner(drums) and Mike Monda(guitar and backing vocals) have known each other for decades and had played music together in "Jam" bands back in the late 70's and early 80's.  The three reunited in mid-2012 to create what is now Temple of Switches. 
       The two primary writers Kevin and Mike are on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to their approach to music. Mike likes the dark and dissonant and would rather not play at all than compromise. Kevin on the other hand is perfectly at home in the pop genre with a desire to appeal to the millions.
        Lyrically Mike draws from pain and sadness and typically paints a cloudy picture whereas Kevin is the inspiring optimist with his fist in the air. On songs like "Desert Sands" and "The Positive side (part two) there is almost an outright conversation between the two where the song dwells on the sad and hopeless until Kevin steps in to let us know that it's not that bad, and that everything will be alright in the end.
        The result is a perfect blend of dark and beautiful, melodic and dissonant, power and finesse. Decidedly retro sounding with rich Hammond organ tones through a gritty old Leslie, and every guitar sound in the book. 
        For the rhythm section, Jay's approach to drumming is powerful and at the same time complex and full of creative fills (Neal Peart fans take note). Since the bands inception a few years ago finding the right bass player had been quite a dilemma, cycling through more than a handful of people, with Mikes brother Joe traveling over 300 miles to fill in when needed, and eventually recording the bass tracks for their debut CD.

The Selects is #Flyah




From the farmland and gently rolling hills of southern Indiana comes the sound of a strange rock band roaring to life. Although there are many local bands which populate the bars and clubs of the area, this one is different. The songs are unique, the playing is of a style harkening back to 70's punk rock and reminiscent of 90's grunge at the same time. The theme of The Selects seems to be 'unique' as just looking at the members this becomes apparent. Front man and bassist Ethan Eck is a classic punk rocker, drummer Rama Sobhani is an efficienado of 50's and early 60's rock, and guitarist Matt Hutson embodies the power pop and grunge of the early 90's. The band's beginning dates back only a year with the break-up of two Vincennes, Indiana bands; Sonic Strike and Paper Sweaters. The three were united by their desire to make a brand of rock music all their own. Vincennes is now where they call home, a tiny, quiet town free from the urgency of big city America. It is here the punk rock/grunge music is made against the prevailing winds of country and southern rock in the area. Taking the stage adorned in plaid, punk rock and Big Star T-shirts they convey a message that many legendary bands have; this our music and we won't back down from it. Their new record, Fast Times at Hammerheads, is a taste of the band's sarcasm inspired by a disasterous gig at a defunct club in Evansville, Indiana. Although The Selects may not have known it, the hip-hop club in which three people attended their show will become a part of the band's legend as much as the community of skaters and punk rockers that have given their praise and acceptance.

Jackie Venson is #Flyah





It is legend that a blistering Jackie Venson guitar solo knocked Pluto straight out of planetary existence.
Venson’s “…astonishing mix of raw soul, superb musicianship and laid back grace…” (Austin American Statesman, June 2014) has been compared to the likes of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and fellow Austin native Gary Clark, Jr. Originally a classical pianist, Jackie picked up the guitar, shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music, and made the giant leap from the tradition of classical music to the raw and gritty blues.
Enthralled with music since the age of 8, this young singer/songwriter/musician instantly captures your attention with a vibrant musical soul and passionate control of her instruments, that reach far beyond her tender age. As she mindfully blends Blues, Rock, R&B, Soul and more, with her introspective lyrics, the message is clear. When you’re listening to Jackie you hear the “Truth in Music”.
In recognition of her dedication to her craft, Bestfan.com said “Venson is no dilettante, wannabe performer, however a real staple of what a musician can achieve when they put in their 10,000 hours for both musical schooling, and late night pub sessions for practical honing.”
Her live performances revisits what makes music so powerful: emotion and passion. She thrives without the flash, instead favoring a clean sound, genuine soul, and meaningful connection with her audience. Music is not only what Venson does – but also defines who she is and reminds her where she wants to be: performing.
Having finished her second tour of Europe and the recent declaration of “Jackie Venson Day” (May 21st) in the “Live Music Capital of the World” Austin, TX, there’s no doubt she has every reason to lead the way with the trademark smile that

Kenny Sway is Flyah



The singers that inspired me was from the Temptations; Eddie Kendrick's was a great inspiration because of his high pitch tenor, David Ruffin, who had that old soul of a raspy voice, Paul Williams, who wasn't afraid to take big risks, Otis Williams who knew how to come in with the harmony and Melvin because of his great bass drive.
I have no set sound; I love and enjoy every bit of music. I want to go above and beyond the peek of music. I want my audience to experience a life changing move of music. I believe
life is music and music is life. I want my audience to say to themself "Kenny Sway music inspired them to move on and hold back nothing from life". I want my audience to know, that my gift is from God, and when I sing; I want the audience to experience the love and heart of Jesus Christ in any song that I sing and know that we as one can make the world a better place for all man kind; living in peace and harmony.
My first song after elementary school, was a song called (Relax). I grew and matured in my music, performing in Washington, DC whenever and where ever I could perform with my band the Unknown; most of the time we perform on the streets of Washington, DC. My music has touched everyone and moved them in one way or another. I want to thank everyone that has supported me and those who continue to support me and continue to believe in me, thank you. Remember, your dreams are already your reality; for God I live and for God I'll die. Hear me, see me on Youtube-Kenny Sway, Instagram- kenny_Sway, Viemo-Kenny Sway and SoundCloud-Kenny Sway.

Clast a duo from Sacramento and Oklahoma City.







Clast is a duo from Sacramento and Oklahoma City. The music they create is a collective effort grown from a long lost friendship rekindled from across the country. Kelly Edward Berger lives in Oklahoma, but is originally from Sactown. After years apart, rumors of Kelly’s death were extinguished when Tom found him in the Mission District of San Francisco, and brought him back to Sacramento for more music, but the time wasn’t right. 8 transformative years passed. They finally rekindled their collaboration through sharing tracks across the web. In late fall of 2014, Kelly flew from Oklahoma City to Sacramento for the first time in nearly a decade. Tom and Kelly played, wrote, and recorded each day of the week-long visit. Fiona Pulskamp joined in on a few sessions. Once back in their respective cities, Tom and Kelly curated, recorded, and experimented with each chosen song. Working individually or sharing screens, shipping files back and forth (each adding or removing pieces) and always discussing the vision for each track. Clast released their debut E.P. Tell Me A Story (2015), and their full length album, Feel Free (2016). Clast’s heart-filled songs disclose their individual revelations of overcoming suffering by embracing compassion, and creating a life of meaning. This is music out of necessity, so Clast is here to stay.

Troy Lindsey & Eden Moody is Flyah







Troy Lindsey’s Emotive Wanderlust

Finding inspiration in one place isn’t rare, but the gift of travel can open up the creative doors to an endless amount of possibilities. Singer-songwriter Troy Lindsey has been lucky enough to land a day job that allows him to see the world, but when he’s not clocked in working on Sikorsky skycranes, he’s making music with emotion at the core. Anything can be a trigger, whether it’s the way the sky turns orange, a hotel room in Japan or firefighting down under, Lindsey has seen it all and has been triggered by those and more as he works on his upcoming sixth album. 

Following up 2014’s Cold Emotion, Lindsey’s upcoming album will be produced by Scotty Schultz and feature a diverse cascade of songs, along with a duet with country singer Eden Moody. That diversity comes from the music he grew up on. Waylon Jennings taught him how similar rock and country could be. He says, “The grit and stories were just tough and the emotion felt real while still rocking and not putting me to sleep.” While Jennings was a lesson in genre, Neil Young and Bob Dylan showed him the importance of storytelling through song. Which is what he always tries to employ as he writes about his travels whether they be about the few weeks he spent in the jungles of Peru, or some other adventure he’s been on. 

Like the time he was in Russia and was trying to fill the gap between cultures and penned “Cold Emotion.” It’s not always about the emotions felt when abroad, as “Dark Hour” came from witnessing all the school shootings in the states, and then there’s “Runners.” A song that has yet to be released, Lindsey assures listeners will know what it’s about from the start with the line, “Runners were born for losing, and losers were born for running, I find myself in the middle, of it all again.”

Troy Lindsey has been lucky enough to travel the world thanks to his day job, and through that and his other adventures - he’s been moved emotionally to write about his escapades and put them to song. Most of which can be found on his previous five albums, as well as on his upcoming release.

Forbidden Planet is a 4-piece instrumental band





Forbidden Planet is a 4-piece instrumental band dedicated to boldly exploring the uncharted terrain of genre-bending progressive rock. With an aural salad spanning neo-classical, rock, grunge, jazz, ambient and all shades of metal, Forbidden Planet draws inspiration from the rich and varied musical history of our species to dredge the depths of the subconscious and call upon the Monsters from the Id.
Forbidden Planet’s debut album “From the Bedroom to Oblivion: Two Decades of Obscurity”. Released in October 2015, the album has recieved glowing reviews both locally in Singapore and abroad. Chris Ang, writing for one of Asia’s most loved online magazines, Bandwagon included the album in the Industry picks for ‘Best Albums of 2015’ calling it a “hidden gem”.
U.K. music blog site, Ready To Rock wrote “Forbidden Planet balance musical and compositional excellence, with just enough mystery to keep us coming back for more. This is an excellent album that I unhesitatingly recommend for prog rock and guitar fans in general”. Radio Heatwave, one of Singapore’s largest internet radio station said, “The album is by far the best balancing act since Joseph Gordon Levitt in The Walk, as at no point in the album does one invade the musical space of the other, and the most prime example of this in the album would have to be its musical apex, “Put On The Suit”. Online Music magazibe Moshin Mag posted, “a solid and thoroughly impressive debut album 
with balanced sounds and powerful instrumental skills”.

THE MELLER BAND with a Disco Classic



The Meller story may be true...... Pop-duo formed in 1964. Members: Ron Meller (artist name), b.1948 and Dan Martin, b. 1949. Ron: vocals, guitar, bass, piano, drums Dan: vocals, organ, bass, percussion, arrangement. There were several different band members, including family and friends, but they never became regular members. They were discovered when they played school concerts in Norway, and were especially known for their harmony singing. They were invited to be the opening act for the Rolling Stones in Oslo in 1965. When their parents thought this was not appropriate, the Pussycats became the warm up act for the "Stones". Eventually they obtained a record deal and the first single, "Why did you have to go?" became a hit in their home country in February 1966. They sought their fortune in London in the summer of the same year, and the second single, "Let me tell you," went straight to the top in England. Their success continued through the 60s with the highlight being when "Condition of Love" topped both the charts in UK and US late in 1967. Ron has said that George Harrison was inspired by his slide guitar on "It's Alright" in 1969, a studio-live song from 20 July that year, hours before the moon landing. Internal strife beset the first half of the seventies. In 1974 there were rumours of a collaboration with other artist like Elton John, 10cc and the ABBA guys, but this was nothing more than rumours. The Meller Band had new hits in the late 70s and debuted with film music. In the 80s their music style changed, as did the rest of the pop world . In the 90's music was again simple with clear references to the 60s. In the new century, it is still the simple melodies that dominate, but with symphonic elements, and they became a role model for Coldplay. It started fifty years ago and they still manage to conjure up new pop hits! Two "greatest hits" collections are under way, "Volume one 1966 - 1983" release in 2015. "Decades of number one hits 1966 -1983", 10 smash hits: 1) Why did you have to go? 

(1966) 2) Let me tell you (1966) 3) Condition of love (1967) 4) It's alright (1969) 5) My time (1971) 6) Playing this game (1976) 7) Get into (1977) 8) Harmony (1978) 9) Summer by the sea (1982) 10) This place (1983)

Sarantos back with a Top 40 Hit

Sarantos Bio

Sarantos continues releasing a new song and music video every month in 2016 as he unveils his highly anticipated 3rd album. This CD will expand on his unique signature style that merges 80s rock with modern pop rock music. Sarantos will continue with his edgy experimentation! Fans and fellow musicians marvel at his humble down-to-earth demeanor, his dedication to his mission and the wealth of free content that continues to drop every month along with his contributions to charity!

His 1st solo album dropped on November 18th 2014 and Sarantos essentially has released 2 CDs every year since. He has tackled almost every genre imaginable ranging from pop, rock, jazz, rap and country. Fans continue to be amazed with his passion and creativity with surprises such as a Christmas album, solo instrumental CD, bonus covers, a steady stream of radio interviews and much more. Fans wonder if there will be another surprise waiting for them at the end of 2016??

Sarantos unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as "an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!"

Since 2014, Sarantos has won over 25 awards with Akademia LA Music,
Beat 100 while also being nominated for the International Music & Entertainments Awards
and the Hollywood Songwriting Awards.

Even without ever using a professional music studio, label, ad agency or radio promoters, Sarantos song “What If I Never See You Again” was in the top 200 on the majors list in the US for radio airplay according to the Digital Radio Tracker Top 200 charts. On the independent charts, Sarantos was in the top 10. He was on both these lists for most of 2015! Within 3 weeks of “Dreamer” being released in April 2016, it hit the #169 spot!

Sarantos prides himself on not releasing robotic music. In concert or on the radio, Sarantos music is authentic and real. It has imperfections like genuine human music should. He is always trying to sound different musically, lyrically and vocally. He does not want fans or critics to get bored with his efforts. Despite the momentum and continued traction, Sarantos still has not turned a profit since he gives away all of his songs, videos and books for free and since of course, everything costs money to make. That said, Sarantos donated $2,000 anyway in 2015 to the various charities that were picked for his songs. It's not much but every little bit counts. Hopefully this number will continue to increase as his journey continues.

Sarantos currently has over 1.3M Social Media followers and is rated #2 on Reverbnation in the pop genre worldwide. Sarantos performed at the Toronto Music Festival in May to a sold out live audience. Sarantos music receives rave reviews every month and he relishes this chance to pursue his life-long dream.

With new hit tunes waiting to be released every single month until the day he dies, Sarantos music screams success and stimulates an overdue conversation in the always-changing music industry. Sarantos loyal music fans continue to show their support by proudly showing off Sarantos merchandise and staying tuned daily for his heartfelt social media posts. His songs are being broadcast every day on various radios stations around the globe. Sarantos continues to do weekly interviews internationally and fans can listen in to some of them on his YouTube page. Let’s not forget his funny, sarcastic, witty and genuinely real music videos that leave his fans not knowing what to expect next. Sarantos never sticks to just one theme or one emotion. He doesn’t want fans to get bored with lame music videos that are common in the industry. What will he try next?

There will always be plenty of buzz as Sarantos strives to release something new to his fans every single week! Every year until the day he dies, Sarantos will release a new song on the 1st Tuesday of every month, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a book chapter from his fiction/fantasy book on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, and a new Uncut Behind The Scenes video on the 4th Tuesday of every month. A new CD & book will then be released every November along with a surprise CD. Every year. Forever.

Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby. Sarantos has written over 2,500 songs!

Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos' father passing away in 2010 after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma, chronic allergies, eosinophilic esophagitis with a stricture the size of a straw, going thru life's ups & downs, the timing was finally right to start pursuing his lifelong dream in 2014. And so it began. Sarantos main motivation remains, however, to raise money for charity.

33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity!

Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to release his music every month as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. His fans help him choose the charity each month. Just a few of the charities chosen so far include the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's, American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Children's Hospital of Chicago, Feed The Starving Children, The Trevor Project and many more.

The website, Melogia (which in Greek means "with words") was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.

Sarantos Mission or Goal:

My goal when you listen to one of my songs is very simple. I want you to feel the need to:

-Sing
-Dance or move to the groove
-Play the song over and over again

One foot out the door

Bridge
I wish someone had helped me
Showed me there was no need to be afraid
PreChorus 3
I been thru much
Without much luck
In all my years
So many fears
Chorus 3
I recollect
The long weary road I’ve travelled
All that doubt and all that pain
Day after day, always betrayed!
But Now I'm tired
Tired
Fade out
I’m so tired of being scared (I’m a fighter)
I’m so tired of being myself (I’m a survivor)
I’m not gonna be scared anymore (I’m a fighter)
I’m not gonna be scared anymore (I’m a survivor)

Svante Widerström is #Flyah



Svante Widerström writes 10 songs every year that he wants to record and release. And since his former band Arbogast suffered a slow death in 2014 it was necessary for him to create a new platform from which he could throw his songs into the great nothingness.
Svante's old friend Nanne Westerholm stepped in behind drums and together they released the album “Catching up with the future” in mars 2015 under the name Sundown Delay.
Though satisfied with the result, as a duo they weren't able to play live. To be considered a band they needed at least a bass player. They found the missing piece in Björn Ericsson and recorded the mini LP “Rubik’s Cube is fighting back” which will be released in april 2016.
