Dr. TRACEY WILEN is the very first Dr. that we've ever had here at ROCKWIRED. She is a prominent thought leader and speaker on the impact of technology on society, work and education. We had a great discussion regarding her latest blog THE CAREER SELFIE. It was a fantastic discussion and we sort of brought it all back to the business of music making because no other industry has been impacted more by technology than music. DR. WILEN is a frequent contributor to the HUFFINGTON POST, the author of over eleven books and has been featured prominently in FORBES, CBS NEWS, FOX NEWS, USA TODAY and THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.  Her new blog focuses on new work trends that will no doubt have you taking inventory at what you have to offer in the workforce.

AND CUTS FROM HiS NEW ALBUM RAiNMAKER
We  first became acquainted with the chops of singer songwriter JEFFREY HALFORD back in 2008 with the release of his album BROKEN CHORD. His beefy sounding roots rock coupled with his DYLAN-esque lyrics was certainly an inspired set of songs that spoke to all of the life's joys and its hardships - a truly bittersweet  collection that seemed to mirror the economic decline of the country. After a six year hiatus HALFORD is back with his album RAINMAKER and so far his new set of songs is living up the title. Critical acclaim is certainly amassing for this glowing follow up which once again highlights this singer songwriter's innate ability to shake rattle and roll all while telling you a TOBIAS WOLFF-styled tale.

http://www.rockwired.com/gtoheading.JPG Congratulations on your ABORIGINAL PEOPLES CHOICE MUSIC AWARD nomination! Were you surprised at all?
Yeah we were very surprised. It's something that we are really super proud of. DEREK MILLER won an award last year and he's on the same label that we're on so we had high hopes for sure.

And I'm super-thrilled that you guys are in the rock category. Rock n roll in Indian Country is really hard to come by.
I know what you mean. There's a lot of blues and a lot of folk. We're definitely something different. I don't know what genre you could put us under. We're definitely very progressive rock n roll. We're definitely something new that is coming out of the Reserve.

Now you've got the album DEAD WAIT getting pressed as we speak. You guys have been working on this thing or a year?
It's been a long haul but we're really proud of what we've come up with.

ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE AUGUST  2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE
http://www.rockwired.com/sihasinheading.JPG After years of being with the band BLACKFIRE you now have this new project SIHASIN. Talk about what inspired this change in direction.
JENEDA: As Navajo people one of our main philosophies is SIHASIN. It is one of our guiding principles as Navajo people. SIHASIN means to plan and to ask in a way that is hopeful. It is hope. For us we saw a lot of things happening at home on our reservation and it felt like for a lot of youth that we spoke with we found that there was a lot of hope that was missing. When we were doing our Youth Empowerment training especially talking to Navajo youth we spoke a lot about the importance of having hope and when you do plan and make decisions you should always do so in a hopeful way. You need to think in a positive way in order to make these things happen. There were a rash of suicides that had happened on our reservation and I felt that I needed to do something else. There needed to be some sort of reminder to kids that they can't give up hope. That they can't surrender to gang violence and suicide all of these barriers that exist that have become obstacles for our youth. SIHASIN became this project for us and all of our songs are about empowerment and hope. It's a long story. It's a very epic story.

http://www.rockwired.com/u2.JPGRecently U2 gave out their new album for free but despite that people are treating it as though it is the end of the world. I'm not a fan of U2 myself, they have songs that I enjoy and what not. They aren't a terrible band as people make them out to be, I simply just accept that they aren't quite my cup of tea. It's a pretty awesome gesture for them to give out their new album for free, just think of how U2 fans feel towards that as well as how many new fans that it may bring them if people would shut the fuck up and listen to them. Maybe it isn't the best album that they've done but it's something and it's for free. Would you rather pay 12.09 or whatever fucking price to sit and listen to the album pissed off thinking of how you could have bought some righteous grass and cheeseburgers.

The first edition of BRIAN LUSH'S ROCKWIRED MONDO MiXTAPE SHOW features an exclusiveinterview with indie film director GEORGE PAPPY regarding his new documentary film THE GREEN GIRL- a feature-length documentary about SUSAN OLIVER, known primarily today as STAR TREK's first iconic Green Orion Slave Girl (from the original 1964 STAR TREK pilot, reused in the 2-part 1966 episode THE MENAGERIE).  She was a highly- prolific actress in the golden age of television, a record-setting female aviator, an original member of the AFI DIRECTING WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN, and one of the only women directing major TV shows in the 1980's.  Tragically taken by cancer in 1990, she's been inexplicably forgotten by the industry to which she gave so much of herself.  This documentary chronicles the remarkable achievements of her all-too-short life.

ROYAL HOLLAND
AND CUTS FROM
HiS DEBUT EP
"VOLUME ONE: THE MAZE"
A longtime presence on the Cincinnati indie rock scene, multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter ROYAL HOLLAND began developing his intimate and grooving synth-folk vibe while performing over the years in bands that played everything from 90's alt rock to punk. The demise of his last group KOALA FIRES in 2013 inspired him to finally take a leap at a solo career. Holland - whose voice has been favorably compared to that of the great ROY ORBISON - locked himself into a practice space and created a sparkling new set of demos that have evolved into a projected series of EPs and LPs over the next few years. His infectious five track debut EP VOLUME ONE - THE MAZE was helmed by GRAMMY winning producer BRIAN OLIVE, best known for being part of the garage rock group THE GREENHORNES and who has worked with everyone from DR. JOHN to DAN AUERBACH of THE BLACK KEYS. He and HOLLAND will collaborate later in 2014 to record the second volume, and shortly thereafter for a third. The singer's plan is to then release the songs on the EPs collectively on vinyl before moving on to tackle a full concept LP (whose songs he is already at work on).

HiS LATEST EP
"FULL METAL THUNDER"

When you scan through what are supposed to be rock stations on the radio , the only place you hear guitar solos is on classic rock radio. No wonder you've got guys like GENE SIMMONS thinking that rock n roll is dead. In the world of modern metal one ax man has made quite a name for himself through his work with DEATHRIDERS, HELLION and now through his own solo work. MAXXXWELL CARLISLE - the metal guitar virtuoso and bodybuilder (why wouldn't a shred metal guitarist have a pair of guns like this guy?) has released his latest EP FULL METAL THUNDER. The short yet powerful set packs a punch with such blistering tracks as the propulsive title track, THE POWER OF METAL COMPELS ME and THE CALL OF METAL. More recently he has released a single VISIONS OF  SPEED AND THUNDER which precedes a forthcoming compilation of the same name.  In the upcoming edition of BRIAN LUSH'S ROCKWIRED, MAXXXWELL will be one of the guitarists profiled in our special feature KICKING AX.

 MiKE SHiRLEY - DONNELLY OF CURiOUS QUAiL AND  CUTS FROM
THEiR ALBUM "AFTER THE LiGHTS FAILED"
Evolving over the past few years from a the singular vision of multi-talented composer and musician MIKE SHIRLEY-DONNELLY to a full band vibe, San Jose, California based indie rockers CURIOUS QUAIL - praised by DEATHAND TAXES MAGAZINE as "The Bay Area's Next Big Hope" - is an eclectic group blending 8-bit electropop, fuzzy alternative rock guitars (think: classic 90's) and dynamic orchestral arrangements.  A follow up to SHIRLEY-DONNELLY's THE GLOW EP (2009) and INSTANT GRATIFICATION (2012), AFTER THE LIGHTS FAILED - the first album featuring all of the current band members-- includes ten compelling tracks continuing the charismatic, visionary frontman's provocative theme of a society that has lost its technological capability and has been forced to create a new community based civilization. Several of the new tracks make clever references to previous ones, leading to a unique "through line" of narrative continuity; for instance, the title of one of the key songs on the new album is the title of the previous project. The rumbling, blistering INSTANT GRATIFICATION is about the way technological isolation from others sealed its doom and led to the new society. Another focal track is THE VILLIAN about one of the perpetrators being caught in the nightmare he created, which begins with a dancing violin and evolves into a fiery rocker. The closer RECONSTRUCTION is both a cautionary lesson and a chronicle about the people who are left banding together to survive in the new world.

WE THiNK!!!
http://www.rockwired.com/gene.JPGRecently GENE SIMMONS came under fire for his statements regarding the death of Rock which many people were upset and offended by what he said despite the fact that what he is saying is absolutely true, which I am going to discuss why it is but before I get into that I am going to post a link to the interview where GENE SIMMONS makes these statements rather than provide little bits and pieces. CHeck out that story here.

Let's face it, there is no real support for the Rock genre, though in instances there are but it's simply not enough. Where are the people going out to local venues and shows? For instance I was at a show this past year where maybe 8 people showed up despite the show being advertised months in advance, granted it was the weekend of Independence day which of course takes away from the overall turn out. I went on Facebook during the show to see exactly where people were and what they were up to which you know what the majority of posts were? It was mainly shit such as "Man, I wish I had something to do", "I'm so bored there's nothing to do around here", "What's going on tonight". These posts coming from people who claim that music is their life this, Rock is their life that, my hearts been broken hit me with a wiffle ball bat nonsense yet whenever it comes to supporting new and upcomming bands as well as the venues which host these bands, they're nowhere to be found, this is typically because they talk about how music=life or how music saved their life to fit in socially with other people because these simply are phrases, these words are not followed by any action and people buy into their bullshit. This isn't a fucking singing contest, these bands aren't people who have other people write their songs for them which these big mainstream bands out there are having songs written for them by the same person which is why everything on the radio sounds specifically like a band which  I'm not going to name but you know who I'm talking about.

The thirtieth issue of BRIAN LUSH'S ROCKWIRED will also be one of the year's biggest. Every October we give it up up for the leading ax men and women  in active rock and this year  we've got an amazing list of guitarists to highlight. Originally called 25 GUITARiSTS YOU'VE GOTTA HEAR - this annual editorial special is now called KICKING AX and in a year that is full of name changes, we couldn't think of a title more appropriate. " Strapping on a guitar and wearing it low and putting your hip into it is a dying at these days." says BRIAN LUSH. " All of this hipster bluegrass music that you hear on the TONIGHT SHOW and what are supposed to be active rock radio stations are taking something away from  rock n roll which I still believe is the greatest American invention.  The electric guitar truly symbolizes that invention. If this forthcoming issue does anything I really want readers and listeners to come away with an understanding of how this instrument  has changed history and changed lives and how hopefully it can change the current emphasis on moody acoustic ballads back to a more bombastic sound in rock radio.

A month after ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE  highlighted all American Indian and First Nations talent  in our special issue ABORIGINAL SOUNDS, along comes the band BLACK STONE to prove that Indians getting together to play rock n roll isn't quite the rare occurrence that we've been led to think  it is.  Of course  once again we had to look north of the US/Canada border to find an Indigenous act that wasn't hip hop or EDM. BLACK STONE formed in 2013  and with the release of their self-titled debut CD they are winning fans, accolades and favorable press for their fist-pounding, AC/DC styled approach to rock n roll. By the sound of things, these guys are all about a good time - a refreshing  departure from the "Idle No More" and  "Keystone Pipeline" politics that permeate much of contemporary Native music as of late. Sure times is strange but why get in the way of a good time?

http://www.rockwired.com/september2014.JPG

The music website ROCKWIRED.COM will be ten years old come New Years Eve but that isn't stopping ROCKWIRED MEDIA LLC - the company that manages the site - from kicking the celebration off a few month early with some exciting changes to their monthly magazine and their roster of online radio programming.

The biggest change is in the name of the monthly magazine. ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE is now BRIAN LUSH's ROCKWIRED. ROCKWIRED'S founder BRIAN LUSH explains the reason for the slight change in the magazine's moniker. "I've been running this thing for a decade now. With the magazine growing in terms of all who contributes to it I think it's important to drive home the fact that there is someone in charge." says LUSH "At the end of the day ROCKWIRED is my responsibility and - in an emotional sense - it's my baby. I'm proud of the work that has been done in the past for years and I think it's about time I put my name on it."

The magazine will brandish it's new name in the September issue which will be available Thursday September 4, 2014.

Now MONGREL is back with their new album EVOLUTION and there isn't a title more fitting for this album.  This time around, the songwriting  has been crafted by the band as whole giving SAVAGE more electrifying material to apply his guitar playing pyrotechnics to and gives HOGAN something to sink her fangs into as one of active rocks most  charismatic front women.

You never have any idea where folks are going to end up. A couple of years ago a band out of Nova Scotia called DALI VAN GOGH  was featured on ROCKWIRED RADIOPROFILES and were one of the bands to be featured in the first issue of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE. Sadly, the band is no more but guitarist is founder ISAAC KENT has taken the moniker and applied  it to his fledgling record company. DALI VAN GOGH  MUSIC is open for business and one  of the first acts to sign the dotted line is  the band REVENGE KILLED MARY JANE.  With singer   front man JAWN E. MAC and guitarist JARRED MASON as the creative nucleus - REVENGE KILLED MARY JANE  are on the verge of releasing their debut album SCARECROW on August 15th. Believe us when we say the band thunderous metal approach is going to making some serious noise.

It's been so long. I seem to say that every five episodes of this show but who can find the time with the magazine and everything else that has to do with ROCKWIRED. The August issue is out there for everyone to read and so far the response has been pretty good. It's the annual ABORIGINAL SOUNDS issue and the issue was sorely lacking input form our contributor JEREMY GILLEY. Fortunately things are shaping up for the upcoming September issue which will feature contributions from GILLEY and hopefully a continuation of our ROCKWIRED CONCERT WATCH series. It's been brought up over and over (by me) that ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE is the first American Indian-owned rock magazine and flipping through the pages of the August issue I feel like we short changed people by not bringing up the exploits of TED NUGENT or WAYNE COYNE of THE FLAMING LIPS. Maybe I didn't bring it up because I felt all slighted by INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY not doing a story on us and figured I'd let them take up the slack, but what kind of attitude is that? I've been a music journalist for ten years now an I feel like I should have made at least one statement about these two assholes. I tried doing it onthis show and I don't think I did it all that successfully. I have not intention of dropping the issue. Please let be known that I think that COYNE and NUGENT are douches. Aside from this we spend the show talking about our future plans for ROCKWIRED.COM and ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE. It turns out that JEREMY is the grand nephew of rock n roll legend JERRY LEE LEWIS and televangelist JIMMY SWAGGERT. As you'll see below, JEREMY is out to prove tot eh world that JERRY LEE LEWIS is the DEVIL himself. Clearly we don't JEREMY enough to do.

JENEDA AND CLAYSON BENALLY (NAVAJO) OF SiHASiN AND CUTS FROM THEiR LATEST ALBUM
NEVER SURRENDER

Brother and sister, originally from Black Mesa on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, were born into the heart of a political land dispute separating them by a fence from traditional homeland and family. They grew up protesting the environmental degradation and inhumane acts of cultural genocide against their traditional way of life.Their musical style encompasses many genres of music including rock, punk, folk, world. JENEDA and CLAYSON are at home on any stage.  SIHASIN is a Navajo word that means "Hope and Assurance" and is the basis for the duo's new sound. Bass and Drums with vocal harmonies giving way to Navajo singing and melody creates a duophonic energy that leaves you with a feeling of Get Up, Stand up, use your voice and DO! Their unique new sound continues the power and energy of resistance for environmental and social injustices.

JORDAN BECKETT OF BOOTSTRAPS AND  CUTS FROM THEiR EP  SLEEPiNG GiANT
Sometimes the best way to make the fates bust a gut laughing is to start making plans.  Portland native JORDAN BECKETTT migrate to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career as a screenwriter but turned to music and songwriting when a relationship has dissolved before his very eyes leading him to long drives up and down Highway 101. When lending a friend a mixtape, BECKETT had accidentally sent him his own recordings . The friend in this scenario is SAM JAEGER and actor filmmaker known for his work on PARENTHOOD and  ELI STONE. When JAEGER needed music for his debut film he ordered BECKETT to flesh the songs out. With a little help from DAVID QUON and NATHAN WARKENTIN, BECKETT's project got nicked BOOTSTRAPS. Now  the accidental band has released their debut EP SLEEPING GIANT - a grand assembly of moody, driving rockers that revel in all that is rocky and devastating about modern day romance.

TONY CLARK OF TONY CLARK & KiLLiNG TIME AND  CUTS FROM THEiR EP  WHEN i'M iN MY CAR
Tall dark trees...the stench of rotting seaweed and oysters, lingering mist wafting over hills and towns. And the slightly deranged humour of a race of men that run around in logger shirts drinking cappuccino - all these things are quite apparent in TONY CLARK's songs, but the German based Seattle native does have more to offer. Years traveling the globe, sitting in the Himalayas meditating over a sitar, playing the streets of Europe with South American Indians, or bearing the icy cold waterfall of a Japanese zen monastery - all these have left a trace in TONY'S musical oeuvre."At some point, I decided the rock song was the right cup, the flask, the vehicle for conveying my ideas." says TONY "I tried other things, but it was all too much of a compromise. I'm happy if I can write a good rock song, with some spices thrown in for good measure." TONY CLARK AND KILLING TIME have been together only for a few months now, but the combination of EMIL ABRIGADA on bass, SASCHA BARANSKY on drums, and TONY's singing and guitar is the future. "Although we come from really different backgrounds, we spent 3 or 4 hot days together this last summer, and we all loved it ...and it was clear that this is the way we want to play."

COLE CHiLDERS AND  CUTS FROM HiS NEW EP  AURORA
Growing up in Bainbridge Island, Washington, singer / songwriter / guitarist COLE CHILDERS was surrounded by Seattle�s grunge movement, but at 17 with guitar in hand; he knew he wanted music to be his own. His debut slo EP AURORA kicks off with the hard hitting modern rock track, "SAVE ME," ,and then slams right into the first single "FALL WITH ME," the video of which is shot from a soldier's point of view.  "This video was very important to me," relates COLE.  "So many people read military death tolls in the paper and have a standard reaction without true feeling behind it.  We did this video in order to cut to the core of the viewer so they may understand the true sacrifice that military and their families make everyday."  The LINKIN PARK infused "ADDICT" follows. The song doesn't necessarily reference drug addiction, rather anything that controls someone physically and mentally in a negative fashion.  "Being high without a drug is referring to finding true happiness and overcoming the crutch," says the singer / guitarist. The breakneck juggernaut of "RUN AWAY," then crashes through and "could be the most meaningful song to me," says COLE. "It signifies the father - daughter relationship in a broken marriage.  Giving assurance to the child that I will be your rock and can always be counted on,"  Featuring a hook as wide as the Pacific Ocean, "IIMPOSSIBLE," touches on the struggle of trying to break through to your significant other during the dying phase of your relationship. The Ep's title track, "AURORA" finishes off the record with a more acoustic oriented approach than the rest of the songs on offer and tells a story of a girl cheating on her boyfriend. While she's torn apart by guilt and not knowing what lies down the road, he just moves on with life, having few cares in the world ... sort of an about face on life.

DEBORAH HENRiKSSON  AND  CUTS FROM HER NEW ALBUM  TRACES
New Jersey born, Sweden based singer DEBORAH HENRIKSSON has been a glorious work in progress since her 2007 recording debut SIMPLE GIFTS, bringing her ethereal vocals and rich, global musical sensibilities to recordings where she re-imagined everything from classical art songs  to contemporary folk and Celtic based tunes and pieces by LOREENA MCKENNITT, ELEANOR MCEVOY, MOYA BRENNAN (from the Irish band CLANNAD) and even 18th Century Scottish poet ROBERT BURNS. DEBORAH's ongoing journey of discovering her true artistic expression reaches a powerful breakthrough moment on her latest full length album TRACES. The 12-track collection marks her debut as a heartfelt lyricist singing songs that emerge from her innermost places. Her songwriting partner is her longtime producer, MATS NYMAN. The story of this album is unique from the others in that TRACES is about HENRIKSSON's search for her own voice, trying to figure out what she had to say musically after spending so many years gracefully interpreting everyone from MOZART to JONI MITCHELL. The epiphany to start writing her own lyrics came from her frustration over trying to finding fresh outside songs that captured what she wanted to communicate as an artist. She saw this as a watershed fork in the road - either keep doing the same thing or dig deep to see what she could pen herself. She and NYMAN experimented with different approaches to songwriting, but in the end, rather than simply write poems for him to set to music, she generally sat with him as he created melodies and arrangements and - filled with fresh inspiration - she would go off and start writing lyrics.

They are currently releasing their new 7 song EP. THE BLB DEMO, whose title is a playful misnomer since it's a fully produced set capturing their dynamic multi-faceted sound.

From beginning to end the crowds attention was captivated which I don't feel happens too often because for some reason people tend to treat the opening act as if they'll contract a venerial disease through some sort of physical or air born manner but the crowd was into it, screaming, yelling, dancing around, and it carried on all through the night.

DEAD WAiT

Citing influences such as RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, BOB DYLAN, TOM WAITS, THE DARKNESS, THE BLACK KEYS  and KINGS OF LEON, GHOST TOWN ORCHESTRA create a vibrant folk-inspired sound well suited for fans of rock & roll and alternative folk fans alike. LOGAN STAATS (guitar/vocals),VICTORMARTISIUS (guitar/vocals), IAN MARTINS (Bass/vocals) and PAUL VENDETTI (Drums) steadily morphed themselves into an experimental rock-funk outfit during the the early summer of 2012 in the forgotten ghost town of Brantford Ontario. What began as a simple collaboration project between the young but scattered musicians quickly transformed into a rambunctious hybrid of swaggering indie rock and danceable Folk not bound by any specific genre. Guided by sandpaper-gritty vocals, a blend of raw unpolished boogie rock, and unvarnished guitar parts these gentlemen of the stage are set to prove that anything is possible when you put you heart and soul into it.

When it comes to strolling through the past darkly , no one out there comes close to Haida singer-songwriter KRISTI LANE SINCLAIR. The stripped down acoustic sound is all the rage in the indie rock scene but SINCLAIR takes that sound and  goes a little deeper on her latest  release THE SEA ALONE. Her sound is a mixture of folk, and grunge with a few classical flourishes accentuated by cellist CRIS DERKSEN but it is SINCLAIR's haunting lyrics and her distinctive growl that make THE SEA ALONE an affair to remember.

We've highlighted drummers, bassists and female frontwomen. For September, ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE gives it up for the men behind the microphone. At ROCKWIRED we feel it's time we gave it up for the men in active rock. While the front man may not be the most  unsung member of any rock band but any charismatic front man needs to be recognized and there has never been a  shortage of that within the pages of our publication. We've titled this special issue GUYS OF ROCK and in it you will find a fourteen-page spread featuring 25 of active rocks' leading front men. Included in this issue is aa exclusive podcast featuring interviews with these 25 front men as well as musical performances.  And what would ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE be without our ussually rocking editorial?

It's like we're putting our ear to the train tracks and we can here something roaring in the distance. (HED) P.E. has been releasing music since the late nineties and their unlikely combination of metal and reggae sounds has set them apart from much of their active rock brethren.  Now with backing from the label PAVEMENT ENTERTAINMENT, the band is due to drop their most ambitious effort to date on July 22nd. The forthcoming album EVOLUTION is just that  - a step forward inthe band's sound  while simultaneously embracing  a few sonic flourishes from metal's winding past.  "As a guitar player when you are playing live you have your metal stuff and you are coming at it form a metal point of view and then the next song could be a reggae song which is a completely different approach." says (HED)P.E. guitarist JACKSON "If you attack reggae with a metal approach it's going to sound a lot different than if you attack it from a genuine reggae approach. That was probably one of the biggest challenges for me. This album really showcases what we do live. It's not a typical combination that you find in a record but it is one that (HED) P.E. an definitely do well."

In the years that ROCKWIRED has been doing ABORIGINAL SOUNDS we've been  pretty desperate to find a band of Natives that aren't afraid of turning up teh volume and just letting it rip. With all of the hip hop, blues, reggae and new age that has become typical of teh sounds comingout of Indian Country  we've been shouting out into the heavens this simple question "Where is the metal music?' Obviously we had to set our sites above the U.S. Canadian border and become acquainted with the band KICKIN KROTCH. Comprised of members of the Maliseet and Mi'kmaq Nations. KICK IN KROTCH take their inspiration from lifes hard knocks and set it to music you can bang your head to. Sure, the metal appraoch has set them apart form the likes of  FRANK WALN or a A TRIBE CALLED RED but their headbanging approach is showing signs of paying off professionally. THe band is currently nominated for  the prestigious ABORIGINAL PEOPLE"S CHOICE MUSIC AWARD on the strength of  their gritty self titled album.

RE-EVALUATES
THE 1989 EURYTHMiCS ALBUM
WE TOO ARE ONE
FEATURiNG  SONGS FROM THiS UNQUALiFiED CLASSiC AND ViNTAGE iNTERViEW EXCERPTS
It was marketed as "a bold new beginning" for EURYTHMICS back in 1989 but the album WE TWO ARE ONE ended  up being the last album from the duo of DAVE STEWART and ANNIE LENNOX for a decade. Sure the album isn't as remembered as say SWEET DREAMS (ARE MADE OF THIS) or TOUCH or BE YOURSELF TONIGHT but the album captures an interesting moment in time for one of rock's most imaginative songwriting partnerships. You see, the story of EURYTHMICS was always kind of backwards. It's a story about falling in love and then breaking up and then deciding to be in a band together. This strange romantic circumstance has always led to some engaging music but by the time WE TOO ARE ONE hit the presses, that  chemistry was combustible and you can hear the explosions in such kiss offs as YOU HURT ME (AND I HATE YOU) ,  (MY MY) BABY'S GONNA CRY and DON'T ASK ME WHY whihc includes the jagged line "I don't love you anymore / I don't think I ever did." Too many hard feelings in an album can be hard to take but leave up to this duo to serve up these bitter gems with style.

BYRON from PELVIC MEATLOAF has been a huge, huge help. Aside from his talent he is an amazing guy We also have YVONNE LAUGHLIN who is really pushing BACK FROM ASHES everywhere. And the fans have been really pushing us as well. Fans and friends have really made things happen for us. When we get up every morning we just write. So thanks to all of those people. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be getting out of bed.

What are you looking to as a release date for this album?
We're looking at releasing it towards the end of the year. Maybe around August.

So far how do you feel that ti's different from your previous release?
It's a lot more intense as opposed to 261 and BROKEN. There's been a lot of personal stuff that has been going on since JASON left and I personally put my own touch to it. I was worried that the fans were going to react to it very differently. And they loved it. They were like "Wow! It's like new life has been brought to BACK FROM ASHES!" They loved it. The reaction has been great.

ORiGiNALLY FEATURED iN THE JUNE  2014 EDiTiON OF ROCKWiRED MAGAZiNE
http://www.rockwired.com/3dinyourfacehighlight.JPG So you guys are based in Omaha, Nebraska?
Correct!

What kind of scene are you guys surrounded by?
It's a tough scene. We're surrounded by a lot of indie music. That's what is hot right now and we're kind of smack dab in the middle of a thriving indie rock scene which completely goes against the grain of what we're doing. Indie rockers are minimalists and we're a band that puts on a big rock n roll show. We've got the loud guitars, big hair and makeup.

Minimalist is a great word to describe the current indie scene. Who all comes out to see you guys when you do a show?
It's an array of people. It would surprise you. It's kids that have never seen rock n roll shows before and their parents will bring them out because their parents grew up in the eighties and can remember what rock n roll used to be. We've got kids in the audience - anyone from twenty one year old college students to forty or fifty year old parents. A whole gamut of people come out to see us.
