    Shannon Rae is 100 Proof all original California Country Rock. She is a Southern California native raised on The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt and Tom Petty and influenced by Shania Twain, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood. Her second album Lucky 13, showcases that Shannon has hit her stride with an original style all her own. Lucky 13 is a sassy combination of Country, Rock, Pop and even a splash of Bluegrass. Grammy award winning producer Chris Lord Alge says, "Shannon Rae has everything it takes to be a country rock star!”
    Shannon’s distinctive musical career includes two all-girl trios, pop band Demimonde (Saban/Shuki Levy) and the country influenced Sweetwater Junction, which fed her desire to write and perform as a solo artist. In 2015 Shannon joined forces with producer, songwriter and band mate Dave Polich who together have written and produced a noteworthy catalog of songs, making their mark with the debut hits Walk Away, Both Guns Blazin’ and Beer Trucks & Girls. And now with the release of Lucky 13, you’ll hear the new singles Get Lucky with it’s own original choreographed dance by choreographer Kristal Lynn, and Tequila, a crowd-pleasing sing along! 
    Her live shows are a must see as Shannon and 100 Proof (her 6 piece band) bring a rockin’ high energy performance of all original country tunes with catchy riffs and engaging lyrics that will get the whole audience a singin’ and a two steppin!

    Conventional wisdom says the two frontmen of a band shouldn’t live on opposite sides of the United States, but that's never seemed to deter Avi Vinocur and Patrick Dyer Wolf. Drawing their name from Pat and Avi’s onetime geographic midpoint between their homes in San Francisco and Chapel Hill, NC (the real town of Goodnight in the State of Texas, a tiny hamlet east of Amarillo), the four-piece also exists at the center of its songwriters’ contrasting styles — via a 1913 Gibson A mandolin and a 2015 Danelectro, at the crossroads of folk and blues and rock ‘n’ roll, in a place where dry wit and dark truths meet hope and utmost sincerity.

    Michael Paulo - Sax Player with Bobby Caldwell, Kenny Loggins, Al Jarreau

    Michael Paulo - Sax Player with Bobby Caldwell, Kenny Loggins, Al Jarreau

    One of the most versatile and cosmopolitan saxophonists in pop, soul and contemporary jazz for nearly 35 years, Michael Paulo has added his distinct saxpertise to a virtual who's who of artists, including Al Jarreau (Paulo's longest term touring association), James Ingram, No. 1 Smooth Jazz Trumpeter and guitarist Rick Braun and Peter White, Oleta Adams, Kenny Loggins, Patti Austin, Jeffrey Osborne, Jeff Lorber, David Benoit, Carl Anderson, Bobby Caldwell, Johnny Mathis and more. Paulo grew up in a musical family (his father a pianist, his mother a singer, his siblings all playing instruments) and though he came upon the sax relatively late at age 15, he quickly became first horn player in his high school band and was playing professional gigs around the islands within a few years. Rather than accept a scholarship to North Texas State, he chose a more adventurous road by joining Hawaiian pop/rock band Kalapana, which had some success on the mainland but was most popular in Japan. After playing regularly and recording on all four of Kalapana's albums from 1975 through 1979, Paulo recorded a solo album for Japanese release on Trio records. In addition to exposing him to the Japanese jazz audience, Tats in the Rainbow gave him the opportunity to work with legendary pianist Herbie Hancock.

    Many Bodies, One Mind - Diana Purim and Krishna Booker of Eyedentity

    Many Bodies, One Mind - Diana Purim and Krishna Booker of Eyedentity

    “Many in body but one in mind” is an ancient Buddhist concept which signifies a unity that has at its heart, respect for the diverse and unique qualities of each individual. This unity can be formed only among those who respect one another and cherish each other’s unique attributes and abilities, while working in harmony to compensate for one another’s weaknesses. In essence, many people having the same feeling, thought or aim toward a goal.
    This has been a major theme for Eyedentity over the years and through many transformations since its inception in 1997. Searching for their own voices in a family of giants, it can be witnessed in the desire of its founding members to individuate themselves from their legendary forefathers, all the while preserving, sharing and honoring their history as they forge ahead together into the musical unknown.
    Diana Purim began her musical career in 1972, touring with Chick Corea’s Original Return to Forever in the belly of her mother. She grew up on the road traveling like a gypsy from country to country with her parents, Brazilian Jazz pioneers, singer Flora Purim and percussionist Airto Moreira. Krishna Booker is the son of renowned Jazz bassist, Walter Booker, nephew of Wayne Shorter and godson of Herbie Hancock. Credited by Herbie in his book for introducing him to Hip Hop and the idea for “Rock It”, Krishna began his musical career beat-boxing for Herbie. He later went on to making original music with Diana, his wife and childhood friend.
    The two share a deep love of music and a background in Jazz, Funk, Brazilian and Latin Fusion. Their passion for all kinds of music fueled the fire of their creativity and together, they stretched the boundaries of Hip Hop by fusing it with all their multicultural musical influences. “For the purists, we remind them that even Jazz is an art form born of Blues and Classical music. In fact,” explains Diana, “all of the world’s music has evolved from its most primitive indigenous origins, being shaped and molded by geographical, political, social and cultural influence to become what it is today.”
    Using their Hip Hop experience to carry them through their first Trip Hop venture, they found some success with a single called “Heavy Interference” from their first release. “It was a struggle for us to find our true sound,” says band leader / composer / percussionist / producer, Krishna. “We’ve been influenced and inspired by so many styles of music and were using the Eyedentity platform to experiment with them all. Although we had some brilliant moments, we hadn’t achieved a homogenous and unified sound until now. I feel like we have finally found Eyedentity’s identity with this new album.”
    During the search for their unique Urban/Brazilian sound, they began to notice commonalities in the art and music of varying countries, especially within the slave
    culture, music, spirituality and art of oppressed peoples. In Brazil, slaves were allowed to bring their culture from their countries of origin. We clearly see this reflected in their spirituality, dance, art, food and music. The slaves in America were more restricted and forced to abandon their culture for the customs of their oppressors or risk being beaten or killed for not complying. Yet somehow, they found other ways of expressing their authenticity without risking life and limb through the musical mediums of Jazz, Blues, Rock, Hip Hop, etc…

Good guests, bad host

Jackie Bertone does a good job of booking session players who have worked with some of the best names out there (and in some cases, some of the "names" themselves). The big problem with this podcast (other than having the same ads air over and over and over constantly) is the host himself. Jackie is one of those terrible interviewers who is more interested in talking (about himself) than listening to the guest. He brings up his own health struggles and deaths of friends incessantly, he constantly tries to manufacture a bond with guests by name-dropping, and he seems to ask some questions only for the purpose of agreeing with the guest in order to be obsequious. The worst thing is that he does zero research and frequently gets the bio facts of the guests wrong. My favorite was when he kept playing tracks to drummer Tris Imboden where Tris kept having to humbly say, "Well, I didn't play on that. That was a very talented drummer named X." He asks the same questions over and over, works his theory about how Italians "taught the world to eat" into every conversation (we're glad Italians love their own food, but newsflash: every culture thinks their food is the best), and never follows up interesting comments by the guest with more questions on that topic because...well, they're not on his question list. Also, on the technical side, there is a constant delay and the host and guest talking over each other. Jackie blames techolocials "gremlins," but many other podcasts with the same budget (say, Ken Rudin's Political Junkie) do phone interviews without these problems. So his team comes off as unprofessional. The podcast would be immensely improved if Jackie did a bit of research on the guests, went into interviews without an agenda, stopped repeating comments he's made in other interviews, stopped namedropping and talking about himself, and worked up different questions for each guest based on facts of THEIR life, not his magic list of boring questions.

Great Guests - Host that doesn't listen

The first reviewer Terry212am got it exactly right. Jackie gets his research wrong and tends not to listen. He will set up a guest for something insightful and of real interest to the listener. He will even say "we're going to talk about ..." and right before he lets the guest answer he'll say something like, "What's your favorite restaurant?" Also, big name dropper. You may find the guests interesting, but you will have to sift through the drudge of the host.

Awesome
