As owner and founder of The Forward Progress Sound (TFPS), composer, music producer, audio engineer, songwriter, and multigenre artist, Eddie S.G. is simply a music geek. As a kid growing up in Queens, NY, his passion for music began with his parents and in school. Rock ‘n’ Roll, Salsa, Merengue, and R&B were always in the air around the house, as poetry and playing clarinet in the school band became his hands-on access to creativity. Trouble at home forced him to leave at age 16. From that point on, music became more than just something in the air to him. It became his outlet. He started inking his thoughts, rhyming them, and then turning them into lyrics.

Eddie S.G. signed up to join the Marine Corps in his senior year of high school and left for bootcamp after graduating. After a 7-year career and one year as a Boeing contractor living in the UK, he decided to return home to pursue a higher education in music. He graduated from the Institute of Audio Research with a diploma in Audio Engineering and Music Production in 2010. Afterwards, he attended Fordham University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2014. In October 2014, he founded TFPS and began releasing music under his label.

Although Eddie S.G.’s first love is Hip-Hop, he is also passionate about Classical, R&B, Rock, House, EDM, and New Age and tries to listen to everything in-between as well. He takes pleasure in creating music, not worrying about blurring the lines of genre. The music that pours from his heart is dark and deep. Whether with lyrics, instrumentation, or both, he prefers speaking through music, making his sound very personal. This is especially so since he is rather quiet otherwise.

Eddie S.G. is simply music




Jessica's Theme Band was formed in Athens, Greece, in 1989, by John Goudoulas, Jim Karahontzitis and Nick Agathos. They wanted to present a different view to covers such as Tush, I know A Little, Feel Like Making Love, Don't Believe A Word etc as well as their own, original, material. Following numerous live gigs, collaborations with local acknowledged musicians, and even after receiving the first prize as band of the year in 1991 on a Greek TV show, the band was disbanded in 1994. After each member's musical journey, they decided to re-unite with two significant additions: Tony Linaris on drums and Denis Kaskouras (a later member of the original band) on bass. With a complete line up, the band started working on its first album, in 2013, inspired by bands from the early seventies (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Bros, Molly Hatchet, Eagles), by various British bands like Bad Company, UFO etc and by Irish bands like Thin Lizzy, Rory Gallagher etc.

The Damnable Cads are a cadre of arrogant swine who travel the world swilling beer and keeping the neighbours up late. Do not trust these men. Unless of course you’re just after a good time that you’ll deny ever happened.

This band is awesome.  I normally just listen to one song when I put bands in our magazine but these guys will have you coming back for more.  I really love the way their songs play out.  They have a cool calming vibe with well put together lyrics.  They remind me of great bands like Three Doors Down and Owl City.  They have about 5 or six songs on Soundcloud that are all creative and different from most.  Take the time to check them out and don't be afraid to comment and tell us what you think

"Lying, Crying, and Dying," is, for the most part, an upbeat collection of pop/rock story songs, about life, love, and death.  With strong lyrics, good beats and interesting vocal harmonies, "Lying, Crying, and Dying," is one of the more interesting entries in the pop/rock category.  One of the reasons, the collection is successful, is that, the overall sound is more like that of a pop/rock band, rather than a singer/songwriter.

Singles (by track number)
  1. "Why Don't U Call Me" (Uptempo) A boy tries to help the girl of his dreams recover from a broken heart.
  2. "The Rock Singer" (Mid Tempo) A man tells the story about meeting his rock idol as a teenager, and how that meeting affected the rest of his life
  3. "Afraid of Love" (Mid Tempo) A girl, whose boyfriend cheated on her, is asked, by a rival suitor, to reconsider love.
  4. "X-Rated Movie Star" (Uptempo) A story about a young "Hollywood" actress, who ends up in the porn industry.
  5. "Selfish Man" (Slow Country Song) A man's wife dumps him for taking her for granted
         7. "Ode to a Rainy Day" (Slow Tempo) A man tries to cope with the death of his mother
         9. "The Messiah" (Slow Tempo) A gospel song about the crucifixion of "Christ."

GHOST IN THE MACHINE

ARTIST BIO

Ghost in the Machine is reborn! The U.S. band that has fused Rock, Electronica, and Industrial into their own form of "Rocktronica" has now evolved an organic rock sound only GITM could deliver - a perfect blending ofGhost in the Machineelectronic hard rock, industrial, and electronic dance music. Its latest album,Broken from Binary, is truly the reinvention of Ghost in the Machine.
Since its first album, named for the band, was released in 1998, GITM has been a trailblazer in Rocktronica, creating an uncategorizable hybrid of modern rock, metal and hard rock, dance, urban, industrial, techno, and electronica, all in various flavors, melded into a perfect, seamless mix that people love to hear. Many of the songs from the ground-breaking albums that followed (The Haunting BeginsThe Repo Session, and The One Within), have weaved their way into 21st Century American culture, heard on TV shows on almost every major cable channel, in feature movies and indie films, on commercials, and in video games, mobile apps, and other modern media.
While staying true to its industrial/electronic roots, with aggressive and emotionally charged songs, Ghost in the Machine's Broken from Binary, released in 2015, brings a new, modern, dark and edgy sound with pop appeal. Featuring GITM's cover of Billy Joel's song "Pressure," the voice ofGhost in the Machine takes you on a journey through the dark side. As an unseen ghost, you are witness to what happens inside the machine - love and hate, oppression and enlightenment woven into well-crafted songs with thundering grooves, heavy guitars and lush electronics.
Ghost in the Machine
Ghost in the Machine's songs always exude an understanding of how music reflects life - both the good and the bad. Music makes us feel invigorated; it motivates and drives us. It also angers and saddens us. It's really another sense by which we experience the world around us. Thus, life and music are intimately intertwined. By casting a wide net and bringing it to bear with utmost focus, GITM's lean, mean compositions have consistently brought a magnifying glass to life's complexities…and done so with keen listener appeal.
The duo of C4 and Face were the founding members and remain the front line of GITM today. Wanting to create music that fused elements of different musical styles, C4 and Face, both former members of late-'80s metal bandHangman, formed the new band in 1995. In early 1996, the band nameGhost in the Machine was chosen after seeing it on a movie box. It was 
Ghost in the Machine
symbolic of the band's essence: while a computer seemed lifeless at the time and devoid of emotion, the band's music - created in, and coming from, the computer - seemed to bring the computer to life; it is that music that is the ghost in the machine.
Its debut EP, the self-titled Ghost in the Machine, was unleashed in 1998 upon an audience of listeners who quickly made it a success. The following year saw the release of the band's full-length effort, The Haunting Begins, which, for the first time pushed GITM into prominence in charts at sites such as the former Mp3.com, former Garageband.com andSoundClick.com.
Fellow friend and musician DJ R.J. joined the band in 2002; and in 2005, the trio released The Repo Session followed by The One Within in 2006. In 2008, the original members and DJ R.J. separated due to creative differences.
Acclaim for GITM grew and continues to grow. Featuring "Contact," "Invincible," and an industrial rock cover of ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man,"The One Within has, for instance, gone on to win Best Industrial Album at the 2009 JPF Music AwardsGITM songs "Three," "Invincible" and "Embrace" have also placed in international songwriting competitions and many other GITM songs have been nominated, while "Rodeo" and "Second Coming" have been features and chart toppers on sites such as the formerMp3.comGarageband.com and Broadjam.com. In both 2012 and 2013,GITM was selected as one of Supercuts "Rock the Cut" Ambassador Artists, and "Invincible" and "Three" have been featured on Supercuts radio commercials and in-store programming.
GITM songs have been chosen for numerous network TV shows, includingMistressesFriends with Better LivesThe Mindy ProjectArrowMiss USARaising HopeCastleBurn NoticeFastlane,Greek, and Drive. Its songs have also been licensed for cable TV shows on nearly every major channel, including Spike TV,MTVVH1Animal PlanetThe Travel ChannelThe Learning ChannelA&E,Cartoon NetworkNational Geographic,Food NetworkUSA NetworkESPNThe Sci-Fi ChannelWBHistory ChannelTLCHGTVDiscovery Channel,UFC and more.
GITM songs can also be heard on feature films, such as The Marine 4: Moving TargetFace for SaleH2O ExtremeFrakenhoodAce of Hearts,Souls of StrifeA Night at the CatShred, and Shred II. The songs "King of my World" and "Monster," for instance, can be heard on Shred II and Ace of Hearts.

About the Artist

DeDe: An Artist In her Prime-Ahead of Her Time
At the October, 2015 International Music & Entertainment Awards (http://www.IMEAawards.com), we had the pleasure of hearing 2014 Two-time Album of the Year winner & 2015 Song of the Year winner, DeDe Wedekind, perform her Folk Song of the Year Nominee, “Prime of Life” from her upcoming album Dream of You. But her Song of the Year Category win that night was for her Adult Contemporary original, “Stronger”.

What sets this talented artist apart from others is not only her great vocals, which garnered her Best Vocalist in March 2014 on SingerUniverse.com, but her unique & versatile songwriting. DeDe writes songs that cross many genres of music including: Adult Contemporary, Folk, Pop, Country-Pop, Rock, Americana, Singer/Songwriter, World Music, Jazz and Inspirational. This was evident when at the 2014 IMEA Award Show she received 9 nominations in 7 different categories (the most of any IMEA Artist). 
And indeed she was a winner: she went to the stage to accept a grand total of 3 IMEA awards that chilly October Night in Kentucky for: AC Album of the Year for Love & Fairy Tales (7/2013), Holiday Album of the Year for World of Christmas (11/2013), and Song of the Year for “Canon on the Lord’s Prayer”. This tied DeDe with friend and singer/songwriter Matthew Huff, Country Artist of the Year who also won 3 awards, the most awards won by any artists at the show. Says DeDe about this honor:

“We were all rooting for each other, all of us Indie artists who had been hanging in there, writing songs like crazy, and performing all over the place… in a very tough, sometimes brutal industry. I’d just joined the IMEA because it sounded like a worthwhile organization for indie artists-and it is. The rest was about timing: I decided to submit a bunch of songs from my 2 albums I’d just released in 2013 on a whim-thinking “what the hec”? I have all these new songs, and maybe these judges will like one of them? But getting that many nominations, and that kind of real support and recognition for my music, well, that was only surpassed by getting to meet and know all of these other great indie artists from around the world- (struggling!) artists who were a lot like me. It was truly a watershed moment for my songwriting, and it was a life-changing and pivotal moment for me and my music career.”
Growing up near Houston, she hails from a long line of actors, storytellers and musicians on her father's Welsh side. She is one of seven musical children from an exceptionally creative family. DeDe herself is a classically-trained singer, pianist and flutist. While she had pursued music on a part-time basis in her 20’s and early 30’s after a career in marketing, she came to realize that music was coming back into her life. Only about 7 years ago, DeDe started singing songs around the house that she’d never heard before, and started having dreams about music. It was at that moment she realized that her true calling was to pursue a more active role as a songwriter and musician. She decided to hone her theory, performing and songwriting by returning to college for additional musical training. With the support of husband, Larry, she began to pursue music again full-time.
DeDe tells stories through her music: her original songs are about her feelings, her life, her personal thoughts, joys, losses, hopes, dreams and experiences. She feels that she has a calling from God: a gift for relating her music & melodies to what we all are experiencing in our real lives. “At first it was really scary for me to step out on a limb and try to start a new career in a field where I’m definitely not an expert. But I'm not afraid anymore," says DeDe. "Not afraid to say the things that I feel need to be said, and to take a chance with my music. I've found my joy, my purpose, and my peace."
Her latest album, Dream of You, is unique in that it tells the story of the emotions, struggles, triumphs and the journey that is DeDe’s life. However, it’s not a blow-by-blow recounting of each and every major life event, but rather a playbook of dreams, hopes, and feelings, both positive and negative. Its full of thought-provoking lyrics: observations about the changes she’s been through, and all the emotions and relationships along the way that defined the life-shaping moments in her life. Each song is autobiographical and details actual feelings and thoughts she had about events and experiences: songs about her dreams, hopes, disappointments and relationships that are all a part of what has made her who she is. 
Every listener will be able to relate to DeDe’s dynamic and word-picture filled lyrics, since her songs tell the story of events that happen to us all. Songs that encompass the dreams of youth (Dream of You), the wild times and struggles of growing up & looking for love, such as we find in her 80’s Bon-Jovi like rock tribute: Leaning on Heaven. We relate to her searches for acceptance and meaning in life via Prime of Life, and the rush of sexual attraction and thrill of romantic love in DeDe’s super-sexy, Latin bossa nova, Recipe of Love. Then it all unravels with her Rolling Stones-esque Sell Me Out about complete betrayal of trust, heartbreak, and being left all alone. And in the end- redemption: finding the strength to get through anything with “Stronger”, and the capacity to know and be able to give true love (Love Lives On, with Andrew Fromm on piano, writer of N-Sync’s Millenium Album). 
Through the many challenges and experiences DeDe ‘s faced personally and in her music, she finally feels equipped to accept herself and her circumstances, understand the real meaning of love, and what truly matters in life. Important things like: relationships with family and friends, finding unconditional love (My Unsung Hero), a solid marriage (Today I’ll Marry My Friend), and the realization that she is comfortable with where her life has lead her. She has also discovered how to overcome fears and the renewed ability to believe in yourself and in the one(s) you love. 
When I spoke with DeDe she told me the depth of her faith has grown as she has gone through life’s adventures good and bad, and she hopes that the overall positive tone of her songs speaks as much to others as they have helped her: and that they offer hope, joy, peace, love, acceptance and comfort. Her music is written, arranged and selected to communicate (God’s) love to a hurting world, even if you’ve never stepped inside a church. DeDe’s witnessed firsthand how music can bring together people of all ages and cultures, and that music can touch the very heart of the listener. Says DeDe:

“So many people listen to music every day. We hear it everywhere: on TV, on the radio, and with the advancement of technology listeners have the ability to take music with them on their daily journeys. My desire is that my music will help a person through a difficult time by giving them inspiration and motivation. This is what inspires me to keep writing music and performing.”
Despite having several singles climb the Indie charts, the release of three albums, and the upcoming completion of a fourth album in early Feb. 2016 (all with well-known award-winning producers, Grammy winners, and Multi-Platinum producers & songwriting friends at the helm), DeDe’s entire career thus far has been built in an independent and very organic fashion: “I never really sought to control what direction I would go in, it was just God leading me and my music, along with my husband, Larry, one step at a time.”
In addition to her songwriting and current performance career, DeDe’s been pursuing a speaking and music ministry to empower women and teens to overcome their fears, and also support those who are abused, or who are living in poverty or need hope and a new direction in life. “I have a heart for children and women, and I know their struggles,” she shares. Her Song of the Year Stronger from Dream of You, is about not giving up or giving in (to suicide, abuse, neglect, peer-pressure, poverty, circumstances, substances, etc.) DeDe says of Stronger, “I wanted children and teens (and adults), to know that just because something really bad happens to you, or you’re not popular, or you don’t look or act like everyone else, you can and will make it through the difficult times, and become a stronger person because of it. But you have to embrace forgiveness (for others and yourself), and trust in yourself and in God.”
Her new song , “Love Lives On”, also from Dream of You, is an ode to deep love and acceptance that references Corinthians 13, without pushing any religious ideas or themes. The song was written as a tribute to unconditional love and specifically in memory of Larry and DeDe’s stepson Matt, who was tragically taken from them this year. But it also began as a way to promote world peace and unification through loving and accepting others-unconditionally. 
DeDe’s also clear about what motivates her career. “I didn’t go into this looking for money or for fame. My sister Missi Pyle, is a well-known comedic actress in Hollywood, and I’ve seen firsthand all the pressure of what that kind of life is like out there, and it’s just not for me.” For DeDe, it’s all about writing songs that bring people hope, comfort peace and acceptance.

DeDe’s been a repeat FINALIST in many International Songwriting Competitions including: the 2015 IMEA Awards: 2 Song of the Year Nominations & 1 Song of the Year win. She just was named a Folk Finalist (Top 5 overall), in the July 2015 Song of the Year.com Songwriting Contest for her song ‘Prime of Life’, also from Dream of You. DeDe also won 2nd Place overall in the Dec. 2014 Dallas Songwriting Contest. "The Plans I Have for You", from the same album, was a FINALIST in the UK Songwriting Competition in Aug. 2013. DeDe had 2 major wins from the International Songwriting Contest for 2 of her original songs from Love & Fairy Tales in 2014: "The Fairy Tale Song" was a FINALIST in March 2014, and “Blame it on the Summertime” was also a FINALIST in the ISC in Dec. 2014.

DeDe: An Artist In her Prime-Ahead of Her Time






Le Folli Arie become a reality in 2012. The band is made of four musicians living in Milan that have a huge live experience. They all have worked in various musical projects and share a common love for music from the 70's(Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, PFM, Banco di Mutuo Soccorso, Area,...). They have also been influenced by grunge, pop, latin, funk, jazz, heavy metal. The clash and melt of all these musical influences gave birth to Le Folli Arie's unique style.
The process of making the band sound whole and unique required 2 years of labor-intensive work.
Once you listen throughout the album you can perceive the binding that gathers the 13 tracks together.
The listener is able to experience many extremely different atmospheres and emotional episodes and to appreciate a deep sense of coherence throughout the entire listening experience.
That's why defining Le Folli Arie's style is not a simple task: it could be prog music dressed as pop or the exact opposite.

In a world dominated by media where the key word is appearance, Le Folli Arie take a brave and anacronistic choice: you will be able to see them only during their live shows.
There will be no official photo shooting sessions, they will not appear neither in their video clips nor on their cd booklet, promotional posters and so on... They would rather release written interviews or be interviewed on the phone whenever that is feasible.
The utopic point behind this choice is to communicate with their fans through their artistic means only avoiding any other interference as much as possible.
There will be no void in the visual compartment though. Matteo Compagnoni, (www.facebook.com/MatCompArt)already responsible for the CD artwork, will tell Le Folli Arie world,
through his surreal and visionary, evocative and disturbing drawings.

Le Folli Arie”, Simone Corazzari (lead vocals, guitars, author and producer), Massimiliano Masciari (bass and steel drum), Francesco Meles (drums and percussions) and Marco Antonio Cerioli (keyboards and vocals) trusted the mixing and mastering of their album with Lorenzo Cazzaniga, one of the best italian producer (Claudio Baglioni, Lucio Dalla, Fabrizio De AndrĂ©, Ray Charles, Sting, Mina, Pfm, Pooh, Vasco Rossi,...). Lorenzo is the last and most precious piece of the complex puzzle which is Le Folli Arie's sound. (here you can find CD credits:www.lefolliarie.com/doc/credits.pdf).

Making their own way through echoes of Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, Porcupine Tree, Lucio Battisti, PFM (and many more...) Le Folli Arie's first work is a true musical voyage you could easily get lost into, that gently flows with no discrepancies; sounding almost "concept"!

Le Folli Arie is on the run!

The Quiet Cull is a rock quartet based out of Anchorage, AK. Fashioned from roots like Thrice, Brand New, and Sparta, the sonic territory they cover is certainly dynamic. With a range of hard and heavy, to mellow, somber and slow, TQC is surely described as contemplative and introspective.

The band started as the brain child of founding member, Todd Farnsworth, who wrote and recorded the bands first full length, before the bands official formation. Growing up in a small town, Farnsworth tried forming the band much earlier, but could never get members to commit. So after many fruitless rehearsals, he decided to hunker down and write the rest of his ideas. Relying on his knowledge and skill from playing percussion in middle and high school, and also from playing guitar for several years, he tracked what is now "Allegories In Rhythm". He now says, "I never imagined a band I would be in to start with a full record, before ever filling out the band. It was out of necessity, but I am so glad to have a full band for future writing. It's so much better having a group of musicians to bounce ideas off of, rather than one guy who just dabbles on instruments. It's very one-dimensional."

After their debut LP release, Allegories In Rhythm (April 2013), the band quickly went to work on their follow up EP, What We Left Behind, (July 2014). During the summer of 2015, the band took a tour of the Pacific Northwest. Afterward, they settled down to start recording their next full length record. 
This Cold, Rational World marks the bands third release, and second full length record. It was just released in November of this year. 

The new album sets a different pace from the bands previous releases. With half a member change over, the band has finally settled into it's skin. This Cold, Rational World is the title track, and intro, which sets the brooding mood for the whole album. Songs like Defaite, The Widow and To The Depths show how the band is equally adept loud and distorted as it is quiet and clean. The whole record has an energy the doesn't give out, even through the ebb and flow of the tracks. Also of note is the change in instrumentation. Songs like Steadfast and When You're Going Through Hell show how some songs need time and space to unfold; that the chorus is not the only important part of song. However, not unlike their old material, the lyrics remain personally identifiable, emotional and intimate, posing questions for the listener to answer. 

Says Rob Daily, of Daily Unsigned Radio, "The Quiet Cull is an alt/rock band who has captured the essence of modern and active rock radio…great melody lines and huge choruses."
Chrisroq, of Nuroq FM Radio, calls The Quiet Cull "One of Alaska's best kept secrets... They must not have FM in Alaska, or these kids would be dominating it!"

The Quiet Cull is:

Todd Farnsworth - Vocals/Guitar
Josh Byrd - Guitar
Nick Vasquez - Drums/Percussion
Mark Farnsworth - Bass Guitar/Vocals
