    Ellen Tackenkamp - Songwriters Guild Live

    Songwriters Guild Live is a weekly radioshow in Amsterdam, focussed on artists who write their own songs. This week your host was Ro Halfhide. We're mentioned as one of the leading podcasts on songwriting! blog.feedspot.com/songwriting_podcasts/

    Ellen Tackenkamp begon haar muzikale carrière in de straten van Dublin, waar ze met lievelingsnummers van haar grote helden, zoals Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, en Bob Dylan, de regenachtige straten van Temple Bar van een zonnestraaltje voorzag. Terug in Nederland studeerde ze jazz aan het conservatorium van Amsterdam, waar ze kennis maakte met het werk van de grote songwriters uit The Great American Songbook. Haar grote passie voor de samensmelting van tekst en muziek spoorde haar aan om de Engelstalige poëzie onder de loep te nemen, en ze studeerde vervolgens Engelse Taal en Cultuur aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam. Goed beslagen ten ijs zocht ze in 2016 de rust en natuur op van haar geboortestreek, de Achterhoek, dit keer met genoeg lef om zelf de pen ter hand te nemen. Haar composities resulteerden in het uitbrengen van haar solo-debuut album “Letters” in het voorjaar van 2019. Ellen's songs zijn persoonlijk en ontwapenend, en daardoor universeel. Ze neemt je mee op een reis door het menselijk bestaan, en doet dit met humor en een afwisselend programma, waarin ze ook bekende en minder bekende songs van haar collega's en helden ten gehore brengt.

    Ellen maakt verder deel uit van de succesvolle pop/folk formatie Woolf, en schrijft momenteel muziek voor het gedichtenproject “TIME,” dat in 2020 opgevoerd & opgenomen zal worden i.s.m. het duo De Thuiskomst (accordeon & viool) Met haar Letters tour reist ze momenteel de wereld over.

    Eyal & Radiator King - Songwriters Guild Live

    Songwriters Guild Live is a weekly radioshow in Amsterdam, focussed on artists who write their own songs. This week your host was Ro Halfhide. We're mentioned as one of the leading podcasts on songwriting! blog.feedspot.com/songwriting_podcasts/

    Eyal:
    Eyal is een verhalenverteller die het hele alternatieve folk-, rock- en indie oeuvre bespeelt in eigenwijze, melodieuze, verhalende liedjes.

    Radiator King:
    Somewhere between punk and blues – a porch and an alley – lies Radiator King, the performing/recording name of Boston native and Brooklyn based, Adam Silvestri. Established in 2011, Radiator King’s music shows influences from both Dylan and Strummer with a sound described by Boston blog Allston Pudding as something akin to what “Tom Waits locked in a room for a month with nothing but a copy of Springsteen’s Nebraska” might produce. Whether alone with a guitar or backed by a band, Radiator King embodies the raw energy of punk, the grit and intricacy of delta blues, and the lyrical potency of folk in “songs that are the sonic equivalent to an old whiskey bar at the end of a dirt road.”

    In early 2019, Radiator King, the musician behind 2017’s A Hollow Triumph After All released his newest project — the Roll the Dice EP, via SoundEvolution records.

    Imbued with the pugilistic grit and deft lyrical instincts that have long defined the songwriting of Adam Silvestri, Roll the Dice’s lead track “Raylene” serves dually as a thematic continuance of steps taken and a turning point in Silvestri’s development and direction as songsmith.

    "What I truly believe is that music and myself are made out of the exact same thing. I do this not for any notoriety or fortune, but because I am literally called to do it from the deepest part of my being. There is nothing else on earth that even comes close to music." - Wil Key

    Los Angeles-based artist and producer, Wil Key, is the genuine article! A triple-threat studio veteran who has produced, recorded and performed with some of the finest talent on the planet including members of Linkin Bridge (America’s Got Talent, Jimmy Fallon), R&B/Jazz singer Miki Howard, The Flobots (Universal Records) Def Jam recording artists Playa, whose subsequent debut album was produced by Timbaland and features Missy Elliot and the late Aaliyah among others. The Louisville, Kentucky native, who sings and plays several instruments, has also worked extensively with former JIVE recording artists L.A .Ganz, with whom he attended the High School of The Performing Arts as a Theater and Music major. The group recorded fifteen tracks for the label, four of which went on to be included on Major-Motion-Picture soundtracks including Booty Call, Phat Beach and The Long Kiss Good Night (Samuel L. Jackson). In addition to co-sequencing the LA Ganz song "Count On Me," which is featured on the soundtrack for the New Line Cinema release Dangerous Ground (Ice Cube), Wil also performs the piano solo. Wil is an alum of Howard University (Fine Arts) in Washington, D.C - home to several highly talented contemporaries including Chris Dave, Gorden Campbell, Sy Smith, Maritri Garrett, Marlon Wayans and Eric Roberson (to name a few). He moved to Denver and studied graduate audio recording for 2 years at the University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) with Roy Pritts. While there, he received honorable mention from legendary producer and engineer, Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zepplin), for his production and performance of the original song "Dandelion" which is featured on the school's CD release for that year, as well as Wil's solo debut CD entitled "Gypsy." Wil went on to receive a Masters of Music in Jazz Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has been a guest lecturer at several college campuses including the University of Louisville, and the University of Northern Colorado where he has presented courses on keyboard technology and software synthesis. He currently teaches college-level Music Production courses in Hollywood, CA and runs his own recording studio in South Bay, Los Angeles called The Bridge.
