Discuss the lyrics of the song.
‘I Don’t Mind’ tells a duel-meaning story about the bittersweet experience of letting go of what we know to experience what is possible…  Whether we are letting go of someone or something, we are letting go to set out on the journey of life to explore all that we truly are and all that is truly possible.

Elaborate on your music career.
Currently I am blessed with playing drums in many bands with some of the top musicians in the Northwest.

I’ve actually got a lot of big plans for the upcoming year. I’ve just completed a brand new State of the Art Recording Studio. I’m working on a lot of new music that will ultimately be 2 different albums that will release this summer. One is all New Age/Ambient music and the other is more Dance/Indie-Electronic music. And because my music is extremely eclectic I say ‘New Age’ and ‘Electronic’ in the broadest sense.  Perhaps a safe way to categorize it would be more under the umbrella of alternative music with electronic and new age influences.

I will be playing several festivals across the United States this year both solo and with full bands as well as playing locally in the northwest with several different bands.

Along with working on a lot of new music in the studio right now I am putting together a whole new live show for my solo act and it’s going to be amazing! I’m all about innovation and stepping outside the box. And yeah, I’m stepping way outside the box.
.

.

.

 

Brief us on how you are reaching fans with your music.
Word of mouth through social media has been my strongest marketing influence.  I perform regularly in the Northwest and have built a strong reputation with a loyal fan base here.  However, with the help of social media, much of my fan base comes from Europe.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your motive behind making music.
Feelings and emotions are the source of my musical inspirations. For me, when creating new music everything starts with a feeling. Far before the words come. The beautiful thing about feelings is they create a different story for all of us. You’re not being fed a picture show and driven by plot. Writing from a place of feeling and emotion you set the stage for the listener to explore the ambient space of their own imagination and see, feel, and hear the story that feels right for them. And although much of my music may not fall under the genre of “ambient music” I still consider it to be ambient music just because of its ambient nature.

I consciously make an effort not to judge myself nor anyone else regardless if I feel I’m right or their wrong or vice versa. There is no winning that argument, only a difference in perception. The same holds true when it comes to art. Music especially. I don’t look at it as creating music so much. I look at it as creating space for the mind to wander and the heart to explore. Without judgement we leave the stage wide open to infinite possibilities whether they might feel good or bad. That’s a good thing because everyone has their own perceptions and by putting our judgement aside we create a universal space for everyone to explore.

.

.

.

 


Discuss your lyrics and songwriting.

To me, music is all about creating feeling and emotion that provokes the listener to create their own story according to how it feels for them.  I try to write more reflective lyrics that allow imagination to flow for the listener so they can build their own story from it in whatever way it has meaning for them.

I love to explore new places and I love to feel emotions whether they’re uplifting, sad, strong, dark, whatever… I am moved by emotions. And because I allow these emotions to feel me up freely, without judgement, from a place of self-awareness, they manifest through my music and become real for the listener.

I have a deep love for people and I want to give them something that will move them. Something that might alter their state even for just a moment to give them a chance to reflect on something different. To take them away on a journey and perhaps inspire them to new possibilities and ultimately give back to the Universe and create something beautiful themselves. In a sense I consider music to be healing music when you successfully induce feeling and emotion that brings inspiration to others.
.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your work and achievement so far in your music career.
I’ve always been a very eclectic music writer and the reason for that is because I don’t judge what I hear and I don’t try to steer and control the direction of my flow. Not to say that I haven’t found myself trying to do that from time to time, and when that happens I always find myself left uninspired and out of integrity. I guess you can say that my “Stand in Life” is all about being true to self and contributing to the world what the Universe calls on me.

I’ve come to the awareness that I’m not the one driving the ship… If I were, we would all be doomed because I have no idea where I’m going. One of the most beautiful things in the world is simply “not knowing.” That is my story… I don’t know!

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on using rhymes dictionary or writing software to develop lyrics.
I’ve never used rhymes dictionaries or any sort of writing software to develop lyrics.  I just write what the music tells me to write.  I very rarely, if ever, have a lyrical story in mind when writing music.  The music pretty much always comes first and then a write according to how the music makes me feel and what it’s driving me to say.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the music industry.
The music industry is volatile right now and changing rapidly.  It’s tough on digital sales but the sky is the limit for taking advantage of all of the avenues that are opening up for the DIY’ers who have the courage and passion to do what they love to do.
.

.

.

 

Elaborate on how you prepare yourself for a recording session.
I don’t really have a given ritual for prepping for a recording session other than when I close my studio door; I am turning off the world.  Nothing about the outside world matters at that point.  It’s sort of like having a magical room that you can enter and anything is possible and nothing else matters.  No bills to pay, no responsibilities, nothing…  It all disappears.  You have to be willing to let go and just be in the moment.  And always trust that what you’re doing at any given time is right!
.

.

.

 

Brief us on your preference in terms of tempo as in up-tempo, mid-tempo or slow tempo.
In short, tempo most often is not a conscious choice for me.  The music chooses the tempo.  Depending upon the many factors including mood, emotion, feeling, etc… tempo has its natural place there.  My writing is driven by these moods and emotions and whatever those may be at any given time will choose their natural tempo to reflect their linier movement through space and time.
.

.

.

 

Discuss your shows or live performance.
I have a much different approach to my music which has allowed me to create quite a ‘cult following’ of modern alternative music lovers and the real value comes from my live performances which is not just a performance. It’s an invitation into a world of captivating imagination, intense musicianship, and magnetic flare that leads you on an epic journey of sight and sound with each and every movement. Enchanting vocals, finesse drumming, and an eclectic mix of spellbinding music are the ingredients which always leave you craving for more.

I perform all my music live as a One Man Show. I play drums, keyboards, sing and control all my backup sequences with synth and triggers. It’s definitely not your average show. I love performing equally as much as I love writing and hopefully it shows.
.

Share your press release and reviews with us.
As a solo artist/musician and producer James is a veteran performer playing with all the top Inland Northwest bands. For the past 10 years James has been masterfully producing and arranging his own music and performs all of it live as a ‘One Man Band’ playing drums, keyboards, and vocals to a full array of his digitally mastered tracks. As the Inlander Magazine once wrote “James is a masterful techno wizard.” But, it’s not really techno. Highly ‘technical’ yes… Techno?  Not so much… James has a very eclectic approach to his music which has proven to have a wide genre appeal to music lovers and combined with a highly charismatic stage presence and sophisticated drumming you are guaranteed top notch entertainment.

Send a message across to your fans and supporters.
I’ve been doing this a while and I understand that you can’t please everyone and at the end of the day what really matters is that I’m true to myself and the integrity of my creations. But, although I operate way outside the box, I know there is an audience and I love my audience. I live to create for my audience, to amaze my audience, and to hopefully enlighten my audience with something that wouldn’t otherwise be there. That’s why I’m here. This is my purpose…

.

Discuss the story line of the song.
‘I Don’t Mind’ tells a duel-meaning story about the bittersweet experience of letting go of what we know to experience what is possible…  Whether we are letting go of someone or something, we are letting go to set out on the journey of life to explore all that we truly are and all that is truly possible.

.

.

.


Tell us what makes this song unique from others.

What fans tell me that stands out most about this song is that it seems to fall in the electronica genre but with a more modern alternative flavor and a strong flowing arrangement that you don’t get with most electronica type songs.  And nicely controlled vocals which add a more New Age Contemporary flavor.

.

.

.


Tell us the theme of most of your compositions.

Since my themes change constantly I would say that the common theme surrounding most of my compositions would be change…  Life is all about growth and growth requires change.  There is a bittersweet connection to this thing we all have in common which is change.  It’s sad, it’s happy, it’s painful and yet rewarding and comforting.  It can be scary yet inspiring.  Change contains so much feeling and emotion.

Throughout the 70s, the band Silver Laughter made a name for themselves by writing catchy, hook laden rock songs with more than a hint of Beatles influence and by touring extensively throughout the United States and Canada. In their prime, tracks from the band’s two critically acclaimed albums and numerous singles could be heard on radio stations across the nation. Sadly, as the 70s drew to a close, the laughter stopped as the group disbanded.

In the years that followed, the band has been remembered and celebrated for their wonderful music. 2014 saw a Silver Laughter reunion when the band was inducted into the Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their albums and singles have become sought after collectibles, and the band’s amazing catalog of music was reissued on a German label in 2015 by New Music/Green Tree on both CD and vinyl.

Getting up on stage again for the Silver Laughter reunion re-ignited the fires of inspiration in bassist / vocalist / songwriter Mick Orton. Together with musicians Tom Kelley and Ricky Zero, Mick has begun a new chapter in his musical journey with his new band The Silvers! Not long after releasing their first CD single, “Running Away”/”Nothing Really Matters”, which also became their first animated video, drummer Glenn Stone joined the band.

Within just a few short months, the guys have already assembled an impressive collection of songs that would fill close to two albums and are coming up with new material constantly! Their first album, “After The Laughter”, was released in March of 2016. Most recently, their second animated video of the song, “No More (This Time I Mean It)” was also released on YouTube March 1, 2016.

Their first EP of 6 new songs called “End Of Summer” was released on August 31, 2016 along with their third video called “Just Fooling Around”.

The fun doesn’t stop there. The Silvers finished their second album, “PLAY!” in March of 2017 with producer, Drew Youngs, a NEW 14 song album.

In September of 2017, Drew Youngs replaced Ricky Zero in THE SILVERS who released a 7 song EP called “Another Summer”. They have also been chosen by people associated with “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” to be featured in a kids’ cartoon series called SILVERS which should be released in 2018!

Be sure and watch for more news about this group of musicians on their Website!

And watch for animated music videos on their YouTube channel: YouTube

 

 

Go into detail on why you love music as a career.

Mick says, “Ever since I was young I have wanted a career in music. I started on piano, but found it was easier to get into a band if I played guitar, bass or drums. There were so many guitar players out there that I decided to play bass so I could also write music and sing. After all, Paul McCartney was my hero.”

.

.

.

 

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans on your music. People seem to really like our 60’s sound a lot. And we want to please as many people as we can, so we are developing as song writers and as recording artists.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

We have found that Twitter and Facebook are excellent places to find fans. Also joining other related groups (such as those set up for musicians we like or fans of instruments) are an excellent source to drop our name!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you record your song.

The songwriter usually records a demo for the others to play to. This sets the tempo and general feel of the song so that the others can play along. Then our producer joins it all up in the end.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the story behind the song.

This song was written with a positive message. THE SILVERS come to the rescue and blow away the bad guys in a whirlwind of positive music.

.

.

.

 

State your musical skills.

I am fortunate enough to be able to play bass, guitar, piano and have played drums in the past. I do most of the vocals and write most of the songs with a little help from Tom and Drew.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how long it takes to complete a song from the start.

It can really depend on the song how long it takes to write. Some of them come quickly, so require a bit more thought. For example, one of the songs on our upcoming album to be released in May came to me while I was walking the dog. Occasionally I get stuck on lyrics and send them over to Tom or Drew who help me get the message across.

.

.

.

 

Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.

My songs usually start with a bit of meditation to try and tap into that universal source out there, and then I pick up the guitar and start strumming. Once I get a nice hook, I record it on this little hand recorder I have (so I won’t forget if I stall or get called away). Then I go to my 8 track recording unit and lay down a drum track with my BOSS drum machine which I call Ringo. I record the beats per minute on the lyrics sheet in case I have to redo the drum track. Next comes guitar, then bass and finally some vocals. I try and put in harmonies and backups so the other guys know what I am after. Sometimes they listen! 😊

.

.

.

.

Discuss music in full details.

It seems to me music has gotten extremely over produced in most recent years. THE SILVERS are trying to somewhat simplify our recordings but still with top notch mixing and mastering.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite genres of music with reasons.

I think our favorite genres of music are pop because of the hooks and melodies. Second would be rock because of the harder edge we use sometimes. Then there is some reggae that we implement from time to time because of the bounciness and fun lyrics they often use.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your rehearsal.

THE SILVERS don’t rehearse because we don’t play live. We are a geographically diverse band with Tom and Glenn on opposite sides of Wisconsin, and Drew and me out here on the West Coast San Francisco Bay Area. We use Dropbox and other methods that allow us to trade large WAV files for our tracks.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite musical instruments.

My favorite musical instrument is bass, of course. But I love the combined sound of drums, bass, guitars and keyboards (as well as strings and horns when we use them).

.

.

.

 

 

Discuss your personality in full details.

I am pretty easy going guy, but I do have specific ideas about my music which annoys my producer sometimes; on tracks we lay down and while I’m away, sometimes he adds instruments which change the feel of the song. Sometimes I like it, and sometimes I do not. I have no problem telling someone what I think!

.

.

.

 

List your musical work.

Back in the mid to late 70’s my music partner at the time was Jon and we wrote about 24 songs during our years together on the road in SILVER LAUGHTER which resulted in two albums, “Handle With Care” and “Sailing On Fantasies”. Both are now collector’s items. We toured the Midwest and Canada extensively until 1979.

When SILVER LAUGHTER split up, the guitar player for that group, Ken, and I moved to California wrote a bunch of songs that were finally recorded 2 of them in 2015 on our first CD. At Christmas time 2016 we wrote and recorded a song called “What Are You Christmas?” It received rave reviews and was downloadable from our website until the end of that year.

In March of 2016 we released a 14 original song album by THE SILVERS called “After The Laughter” released in March of 2016. Most of them were co-written with my pal from SILVER LAUGHTER, Ken. However, he chose not to join the group, so I enlisted Ricky, an online friend from Atlanta, to play guitar as well as an old pal, Tom, to play guitar also. Glenn used to do sound and lights for SILVER LAUGHTER and was a drummer in his own right. So I tapped him for that job.

Then in September of 2016 we released a 6 song EP called “End of Summer”. All songs were originals as well. At the end of the year we released a downloadable Christmas song on our website called, “Sing Another Christmas Song”.

In March of 2017 we replaced Ricky with Drew who also plays many instruments and sings and writes as well. We put out another album of 14 all original songs called “PLAY!”.

Then in September of 2017 we released a 7 original song EP called “Another Summer”. It contains the hit song, “Yes, You Can”.  In December we released two more Christmas tunes, “Christmas Dance” and “My Favorite Christmas Dish” along with the other two songs and allowed them to be downloaded for free until the end of the year.

Right now we are busy finishing up a third 14 original song LP of original songs called “Soul Surrender”. It should be out in May.

Share your memorable experiences with us.

Some of the most memorable experiences were meeting people we’d only heard on the radio like SUGAR LOAF, JOE WALSH, LYDIA PENCE & IN COLD BLOOD, GREGG ALLMAN, and even met TINY TIM at a venue in Iowa!

.

.

.

 

Share your press release and reviews with us.

We have all of this on our website under reviews. We have been featured in SHINDIG! Magazine several times as well as other publications.

.

.

.

 

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

We are THE SILVERS. The band in the ‘70’s was called SILVER LAUGHTER and just as THE SILVER BEATLES dropped the SILVER, we dropped LAUGHTER and became THE SILVERS.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

“Yes, You Can” is the title of our hit single (which is also an animated video on YouTube as are several of our other songs) and refers to the chance we all have of facing huge odds and overcoming them. Yes, you can!

.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

The song is off our 7 song EP called “Another Summer”. Since our first 6 song EP was called “End of Summer” we decided to go with something similar. Also because they were both released at the end of summer in September.

Hailing from Hollywood, CA, childhood friends Monte McConnell on drums, Rob Richman on bass and Ty Stevens on guitar team up with vocalist Trent Durazo to create a special concoction of rock and funk with odd time groove. Collectively, they are responsible for touring, writing, producing and contributing to selling millions of records for some of the biggest names in the music industry.

Monte McConnell’s style of drumming is energetic, intricate and impressive. Being the son of a touring musician the groundwork was laid long before he even picked up a pair of sticks. Monte is a musical sponge – His influences range from James Brown to Afro-Cuban to Led Zeppelin to Jazz. The care and power is evident in every beat, he also can play most triangles.

Rob Richman took a page out of John Lennon’s book and decided to express himself as an artist as well as a musician. Rob’s bass playing ability is intuitive and creative. Seemingly effortless – but far from – To be able to lay a foundation with unwavering time and melodies – Technique and a strong “true north” must be present. Rob’s influences are taken from the greats – Tony Levin, Paul McCartney, Derek Smalls, John Paul Jones and Jaco.

Ty Stevens uses his guitar and his pedal effects with great skill to create his sound. Surprising and appropriate are words that best describe his playing. Ty has the ability to find guitar parts that elevate a song to the next level. Ty’s guitar influences include Hendrix, The Edge and Jimmy Page.

Trent Durazo, a graduate of the prestigious M.I. music school, takes what he learned and turns it into a very raw, very palpable vocal performance. The lyrical content is not to be overlooked; the care and craft for each song is evident to the listener from word one.

When these four talents combine – they create a rhythmic power infused with intensity, benevolence and the gift of great, memorable songs.

9 Dogs is a force to be reckoned with. Turn it up and lose yourself in their music.

 

 

State your reason for choosing music as a career.

Playing music is something I wanted to do all the time since I was young. Learning how to play instruments, sing, and play in a band… I was obsessed.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

The band will usually write the music first. I will then listen to the music over and over and see what kind of head space it puts me in. The lyrics can be from my own experiences or me trying to put myself in someone else shoes.

.

.

.

 

Share your press release and reviews with us.

9 Dogs was featured on The Frosty Heidi and Frank Show which airs on the LA based radio station 95.5 KLOS. Some quotes from the shows DJs are: “This music makes my head hurt” and “I think my eyebrows are sweating.” 9 Dogs ultimately won over the listeners and is now in the running to play the radio stations big end of the year festival.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your life outside the music world.

There is not much of a life outside the music world. Outside of the band I teach music to kids, play in cover bands for fun and spend time with family.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your music career.

My music career consists of teaching music, and playing in 9 Dogs. I graduated from college with a performance degree and never looked back.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

Well, 10 Dogs is just too many dogs… and 8 Dogs doesn’t have the same ring to it. So, 9 Dogs it is!

.

.

.

 

List your five favourite music videos with reasons.

All music videos by the band TOOL because they are super weird and trippy. “Take On Me” by AHA because it’s just cool. “Up Side Down & Inside Out”  by OK Go – They did something I’ve never seen before and its super fun to watch.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your source of inspiration.

Artists who have become successful in the music business despite having mental afflictions. i.e.: depression, anxiety, PTSD.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

This was the first song that I wrote vocals to for this band. It was my “audition” to see if I could write to this kind of music. It turned out pretty cool so we recorded it in Ty Stevens studio and put it on the record.
.

.

.

 

Tell us your future projects.

We are always writing so a new record is never far down the road.

.

.

.

List the names of those that have supported you so far.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your thought on quality and quantity for the release songs.

Quality Quality Quality.

.

.

Tell us your viewpoint on comparing music career to non-music career.

A music career is fun and full of uncertainties and barely paying rent. Non-music career… I don’t know I’ve never had one. I imagine it’s a bit more stable.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on categorizing music into genres and sub-genres.

Genres and sub-genres are a nice way to try and explain something intangible, but don’t get carried away.

.

.

.

 

State the genre you despise most with reason.

I don’t despise any genre of music.

.

.

.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day- saw it when I was 5 years old and I’ve never been the same.

Step Brothers: Will Farrell and John C. Reily are beyond funny in this movie.

Caddy Shack: Bill Murry… duh!

Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back: Because I am a nerd at heart
.

“Too Far Gone”: about using drugs to open your mind and self-medicate and getting caught up in going ever further down the rabbit hole.
.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

“Too Far Gone”: It’s the title track on the record, our first real song together as band and it just seemed fitting for this record.

FCB is a production company/label based in Jackson, MS. Owned and operated by childhood friends and musicians with over 20 years of experience. In recent years we decided to give music another chance at the helm of our lives, and take it off the sideline. After over ten years of being involved only financially, we felt it was time to place our hands on the “keys” once again.

 

 

Discuss your personality.

The personality of the company is very complex and simple at the same time. With different views and opinions that always seem to meet again at the point of getting the business done.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your existence as a musician.

This company is not yet 2 years old. Coming from the days of physical sales and now learning to navigate this digital market.

.

.

.

 

Go into details on the changes in your life for choosing music as a career.

It really does not change our lives that much because the music is always a part of our lives.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career.

The biggest benefit is freedom to do what we want. The biggest hurdle is finding time for loved ones, with all the long hours and travel.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you will manage fame as an established artist.

Fame is not a concern of FCB; our focus is on the business end.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the storyline of this song.

The song is featuring artist – Dextersosoreal. It is basically his narrative on his feelings towards anyone that is not a person of honor and his/her word.

.

.

.

 

Let us know the greatest moment of your music career.

There are a lot, but maybe the biggest was Pimp C of Underground Kings. We were in Too Short’s Atlanta studio called Oakland City Studios at the time, and he just walked in. It was a big deal for us as we had his album in our CD player in the car outside!

.

.

.

 

Explain what you have in mind before considering music as a career.

Before music we were just children.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your moment of rejections as a musician/artist and how you are able to cope and move on with your career.

In this business, you always hear a lot of “no’s”. We just move forward without paying a “no” any attention.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song, artist and the artist’s name.

Dextersosoreal is one of the guys in the game that has the total package. The look, the talent and the sauce. He is one of the most honest people we’ve come across.

“FXCK 12” is pretty self-explanatory. It puts you in the mind of NWA’s infamous “FUCK THE POLICE”!

The Sunbathers

The Sunbathers is a one man power pop project from Connecticut that began in 2015 with the full length album “Dreamin’ of You.” Highly influenced by groups like The Beatles, Elliott Smith, Big Star, and glam-era Bowie, their first album is filled with catchy love songs that build to eargasmic crescendos. The Sunbathers’ new EP, “From Outer Space,” was released on April 6, 2018 and features three new songs and a darker, more mature sound. The songs blend in more contemporary influences and boast abstract lyrics about alien rock bands, isolation, and homogenization without sacrificing catchiness or immediacy. “From Outer Space” is available everywhere music is sold and streamed online.

Blow_Flyy

Blow_Flyy who performs out of Toronto Canada, hailing from Halifax/Dartmouth Nova Scotia, is a new age artist with new thought process, he does it his way, for the fans, that is without rhyming, instead being a story teller. When it comes to the industry, he like most artists who are true to the game and themselves is OK grinding pursuing his career solely as an independent artist so to keep full control of his own musical content. While many artists are looking & chasing labels to be signed, he remains loyal to his identity and genre. As an artist who has clean content, he has potential to gain a lot of respect within the wide spectrum of the industry. Respect with parental units and less vulgar entities will bring new money in a present yet undisturbed revenue stream. Blow_Flyy is destined to make a dent in the industry starting in Canada, to the U.S., and then world-wide, definitely keep your eyes on this artist….

22 HERTZ

 

The industrial music landscape will never be the same. 22HERTZ, the brainchild of independent musician and songwriter Ralf Muller has crash-landed onto the Toronto music scene, making a tidal wave-like splash with his debut album, “Detonate”. Inspired by legends such as Nine Inch Nails and Steve Vai, he paints with a wide, noisy, yet captivating brush, creating songs capable of abrasiveness and beauty at the same time.
