Joseph P. Hradisky Jr - Method #FlyahSubmission

Joseph P Hradisky Jr started in music at Lansing Middle School band as a drummer. He found he was quite good with the sticks he knew it would be a great way to spend his life. Unfortunately life had other plans which made it way too difficult for him to follow this dream. It was at this time he saw his first synth and was able to test it out. This was better than drums, but way more expensive, making it out of his reach.
     After graduating from Lansing he decided to follow in his father's footsteps by joining the U S Air Force. Four years later he left the military seeking something his heart kept pulling him toward. Part of this pull was also a picture of his future wife, he knew he would never be able to find her in the service. Shortly after returning to upstate New York he did find her as he knew he would. In 1989 they married and moved to Montour Falls, N Y to raise a family. Also, during this time period he kept talking about publishing a book. She got tired of hearing him that she found a way he could publish his own e-book. Then along came Create Space, a free publishing company.           

At this point a strange set of circumstances occurred. First he found Create Space made it possible to publish your own music. At the same time he found the Sample tank app which was an easy to use synth. Then the music began to demand out and soon. Sample tank used a mp4 format while Create Space needed an mp3 format. After exploring the internet he found which was a free site to convert mp4 to mp3. What he liked most about all this was how many new things he was learning.

 Joseph also knew that his songs had to be made to be heard more than once. If he could listen to them over, and over, again then the song would make the cut. This brings us to the now, to figure out what he needs to do to put his music out there so people can hear it. CD Baby was the next step leading to radio airplay.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
