    The Amazing Kendal Conrad! Award Winning Songwriter! Singer! Actress! Keith Urban's favorite Raise 'Em Up Tour Moments...

    Bucks County Bytes presents to you the award-winning songwriter, singer, actress, and Keith Urban's favorite Raise 'Em Up tour moments, Kendal Conrad!
    I discovered Kendal from my friend and social media personality, George Wacker, who is known as Lehigh Valley With Love....once I went exploring Kendal's music I was in love with her voice and her Martin guitar! I reached out to her and asked if she could come on the show and tell the world her story! She has the most amazing personality, voice, and love for what she does!
    Kendal Conrad has such an extensive list of remarkable and outstanding performances,  but the highlight really is when she performed and sang a duet with Keith Urban on stage in Bethlehem's Musicfest singing "We Were Us" as part of the Raise 'Em Up Tour and it is said this is one Keith Urban's favorite tour moments!
    She also joined Walker Hayes onstage to perform "Halloween" for 92.5 XTU's Ski Day at Jack Frost Big Boulder. Kendal is also International Miss Talent and won the title with her original song "Girlstrong." She has performed at the White House, Wells Fargo Center, Sands Casino, Six Flags, Hersheypark, the Bitter End, Musikfest, and the Susquehanna Bank Center for 92.5 XTU's anniversary party. Kendal has sung the National Anthem for MLB, NBA, MMA, NASCAR, and NBC’s National Dog Show. She was a finalist in the NBC 10 Talent Search and a finalist in the Colgate Country Showdown. Kendal was the 2015 Country Showdown Winner for Philadelphia's 92.5 XTU. She has opened for country artists Blake Shelton, Charlie Daniels Band, Devin Dawson, Drew Baldridge, Alabama, Walker Hayes, Hunter Hayes, Brandon Lay, Carter Winter, Sara Evans, Tucker Beathard, Jerrod Niemann, Michael Ray, Thompson Square, Parmalee, Dylan Schneider, Diamond Rio, Kane Brown, Granger Smith, Phil Vassar, Craig Morgan, Rodney Atkins, Easton Corbin, Trailer Choir, Maggie Rose, Craig Campbell, Mo Pitney, Striking Matches, Old Dominion, Outshyne, Chris Cagle, and The Cadillac Three and performed personally for author Nicholas Sparks. She has played the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, the Foundry at the Fillmore, iPlay America, Jenks Club, Prospector's Saloon, One Centre Square, Sherman Theater, Sellersville Theatre, Provident Bank Park, PPL Center, Wayne County Fair, PGA Concert at the Bogey, and the Santander Arena. Kendal was an extra in the film Silver Linings Playbook where she can be seen bumping into Bradley Cooper. She starred as Holly Golightly in the exclusive post-Broadway production of Breakfast at Tiffany's at the Civic Theatre of Allentown. Kendal recorded her first EP in country star Reba McEntire’s studio in Nashville.
    But my favorite part about Kendal is her sincere love of music and her love of the Martin guitar she plays...and I had the honor to chat with her and who she is on my podcast...her laugh and love are truly addicting and I hope you enjoy her chat as much as I did!!

    The Powerful Benefits of Kangen Water with Thomas and Kristin of Nature's Waves Inc.

    The Powerful Benefits of Kangen Water with Thomas and Kristin of Nature's Waves Inc.

    Bucks County Bytes is happy to bring you Thomas Sinner and Kristin Singh of Nature's Waves Inc. where we talk about the benefits of Kangen Water...Change Your Water, Change Your Life! Thomas and Kristin and I met through one of my earlier podcast show guests, Nick and Steve from SerisEvents, our very healthy and organic private dinner event planners. Here I learned about Kangen Water and had to find out even more! So I found Thomas and Kristin and was able to eventually schedule a show while they were in the middle of moving to Boston.
    Join us for an in-depth conversation about how water can transform your life, make the needed changes, help the environment, as well as learn about Diane, Thomas's mom who is an advocate for the water system and who is a survivor of lung cancer.
    I am a firm believer that drinking from plastic bottles is detrimental to your health in so many ways, that I took the dive in finally....as I am a Kergan Water believer and going through a detox stage...realizing we have done more harm to our cells by drinking water from plastic...I am a farm girl by nature, and we only had a well and never drank from a plastic bottle, only from a glass. I am happy to be part of the Kangen family...

    Make sure to follow all of Thomas and Kristin on their social media, and please contact them for more info! And if you are local to Bucks County, I would be more than happy to give you some water as Thomas's mom did that for me... I wasn't feeling too good and I started to drink the 8.5 and 9.0 ph which changed my world! Thank you all!!

    The Iron Triangle with Award Winning Photographer Jeff Weiser

    The Iron Triangle with Award Winning Photographer Jeff Weiser

    Bucks County Bytes brings to you photographer Jeff Weiser and the story behind his love of photography and The Iron Triangle. I have always been in love with the camera and capturing the moments of places, people, and landscapes, and Jeff's images lure me to who is behind the camera and the stunning landscapes that he captures, but it the people's faces that fascinate me. A face has mystery, a story, as the eyes and expression are beyond what words can sometimes measure.

    Listen in as Jeff Weiser talks about who he is, how it started, and tells us about the Iron Triangle...a place I never knew existed until now. Let the story capture your imagination of what life is like in a place that New York tends to forget about.

    The Iron Triangle is also known as the Valley of Ashes from The Great Gatsby. The Iron Triangle is encompassed in acres of auto repair shops, salvage yards, and abandoned stolen cars that have been picked clean. This is the gray and dirty part of Queens that you drive through to get from Long Island to NYC. Jeff says that people in the photos that he captured enjoyed having their pictures taken and took the time to talk and tell him a bit about their lives. They know him as “the guy with the camera”.  Jeff does make a point of returning and giving them copies of their photos. We definitely had a great talk on the podcast as I was intrigued by his ability to be in The Iron Triangle and capture these moments...

    The podcast cover is "Javier's Yard" and is currently featured in Black & White Magazine at the time of the interview.  It also won in the photo contest "Looking Back Looking Forward" as it is a part of a series that Jeff has been working on for the past year, Faces of the Iron Triangle. When you go to Jeff Weiser's website you will also see "Man of Faith" that took a Gold Award in the Tokyo International Foto Awards this year.

    Make sure to connect with Jeff Weiser on all his social media links as well as view the website of his amazing images...
