Living Waters

Winners of the September 2015 Akademia Award for Best EP, Contemporary Christian. One song, “Peter the Rock”, was presented to John Paul II by Ambassador Raymond Flynn. On the very first Top Ten Countdown for Catholic Music on Adoration Radio; achieved #1 on that Countdown.

The Platinum Auddy Songwriting Award from uplaya.com was given to “Love’s in a Name”. Living Waters was nominated as “Best Rock Artist” for the 2014 Artists in Music Awards for “Booze Blues Cruise”. Recently, we won the 2017 Radio Music Award for Contemporary Christian Song, for “Do What He Tells You to Do”.

Living Waters started as a house music ministry group at a retreat center in MA in 1976. In imitation of Lighthouse in Ann Arbor it expanded to a full production with dance, drama, lighting and sound production. Travelling in a converted bus LW played in at least 8 states, including Yankee Stadium, the World Marriage Encounter Convention, Hartford Civic Center and more. Over the decades they developed a very unique Christian rock style that has been described as “uplifting” and “inspirational”.

There were many highlights: the song “Peter the Rock” was presented to and blessed by Pope John Paul II at the hands of Ambassador Ray Flynn. Living Waters played and sang with Dana and John Michael Talbot. Eventually, the group became a faith family, many members marrying other members in the group & having a lot of talented kids.

Now, the band continues to meet and pray together. Over recent years LW has achieved amazing success on the Internet. The band has been featured on Windows Media and the ReverbNation main page. After four decades of continuous existence as a band, they have achieved their long-term goal of a digital album release, “Refresh” on iTunes, Amazon mp3 and other sites..) There is also a collection of Christmas classics entitled “The Joy” that is pouring out to refresh hearts and souls. And in 2015, a brand new two-song EP, “Alive Again”, was put out on major outlets and is attracting major attention. In 2016, a collection of recent work entitled “Still Flowing” was released. And now a new production of concert classics is underway.

Find out what all the excitement is about. Dive in & GET REFRESHED!

Francesca Brown

Tell us everything will need to know about you.

My name is Francesca Brown, and I am a singer songwriter in Los Angeles.  I spent half my childhood in southern California and the other in northern Illinois.  I always felt like this was a big conflict in my life as a child, when I moved to Illinois everyone looked at me like I was a weird California kid and when I moved back to California people thought I was a country girl with a strange midwest accent.  I now embrace this in myself.

As a child I was able to listen to whatever I wanted and my mom was always bringing us to see live music, mostly blues.

In my early twenties I found the folk and old time country girl in me; I knew that I had to write songs and sing them, something I had always known since childhood, I just didn’t know how to make it happen.
.

.

.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason.

I would sum it up as Americana, it captures blues, country and folk
.

.

.

 

Tell us your experience as a musician.

I have been playing in and around Los Angeles for 10 plus years, as a solo artist, with a band etc…

.

.

.

Tell us the theme of your song.

“West Valley Lullaby” I actually wrote a while ago, after digging through some old memories in my mind.  The song was about a time in my life when I was going back to school and my life was at a crossroads.  I spent a lot of time driving though the west San Fernando Valley up to my sacred place, Topanga Canyon.  I love to write about actual LA locations in my songs, I feel like hearing references to real places makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, especially when you are a local.
.

.

.

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.

Mi familia!!  Ivan Rivera who plays with me in my new band, The Night Howlers, and who also engineered/ played/ in my EP latest EP ‘Whiskey Barrel Blues.  Steve Valensuela, who engineered and helped to produce my record ‘Collide’.
.

.

.

Tell us about your future goals.

Continue to make music, tour, and get my songs in some awesome new shows on Netflix or HBO!

.

.

.

Go into detail about your opinion on religion and politics.

As for religion … I am not… I am spiritual, I think our earth needs to be valued a bit more than a book or some glowing figure in the sky.

Politics…hmm better not, but let’s just say I am from California and I live in Los Angeles… and I am an artist.
.

.

.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

I hope it is inspiring to women especially, to be loud, proud of who they truly are, join other women, to be honest with themselves, and not fear the judgement of others.
.

.

.

Explain the changes you have observed so far in the music industry.

Obvious one is the internet, and the streaming of music.

I would also say that it just doesn’t seem like people want to go out to see live shows as much, or at least in a casual sense.  Also clubs and venues use artists to make money and often times either do not pay their talent, or set impossible standards that a smaller indie artist may not be able to meet.  😦
.

.

.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

Bob Dylan

Pete Seegar

Joni Mitchell

Loretta Lynn

 

Bob Dylan seems to paint a picture with his music, it feels so familiar.

 

Pete Seeger was truly an activist, he lived to and did change the world, not just musically.  He is kinda my Jesus.

 

Joni is a lot like Bob in a way, she paints these familiar pictures with her songs.  I want to curl up and cry and laugh in each one of her songs.

 

As for Loretta, she is my other half.  I appreciate her blunt songwriting, plus she makes me think of my Grandma Gladys and dancing around with her to country music.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.

Sometimes something like a phrase just comes to me, and sometimes I start with a guitar riff and it unfolds from there.
.

.

.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.

I do, I love it!  And I am super excited to be playing some of my shows with my new band The Night Howlers.
.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the kind of music with genuine message that inspires them.

Well, I personally can dance to anything depending on my mood and partner.  I guess I could say moderation; they both can work on their own or together at times.

.

.

Tell us what you know about copyright.

I do it online… It’s important… Do it.
.

.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performing Rights Organization.

Now that we are in the age of internet and streaming, it seems that there are certain changes finally being recognized and that need to happen and these organizations are helping to pave the way I suppose.
.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

No specific way, it happens either one way or the other… melody first or lyrics first, but mostly they sort of flow out together; or I will get a phrase in my head and the attitude of it will inspire the melody and instrumentation.
.

.

.

Go into detail on the recording process of this song.

Usually I start with a guitar track, which I often times I record in my closet at home, then take that to the studio and add vocals, and from there I add whatever I feel fits and sometimes it unfolds unknowing of what I wanted and other times I know everything I want to include.

.

.

.

Discuss your music performance.

Sometimes it is solo or with another guitarist to add some pizazz, but now I have a trio backing me so that’s pretty cool!
.

.

.

Tell us how you will rate yourself as an artist.

Awkward question, but I think I work hard and put my soul into my music, and that has to count for something.. right?
.

State the official date of release.

December 15th 2017.

False Gharial

Share your life story with us.

False Gharial is a band of passionate musicians. It all started when Hatem, the lead singer and rhythm guitarist, moved from France to Singapore. He posted an ad in local musician forum looking for a band and mentioned Paradise Lost as influence. It turns out Paradise Lost is not common in Singapore and the ad interested Faisal, a big fan of PL. That’s how the 2 of them connected together and Hatem was introduced to Zan, the drummer, and Black, the lead guitarist of the band at that time.

 

.

.

.

 

List the names of those that have assisted you so far in your music career and use this opportunity to thank them.

Justin Ho: He patiently listened and provided feedback on the song structure and recording. His contribution is critical in this EP and we are so grateful to him.

.

.

.

 

Narrate your experience while recording in the studio or while touring.

“Birth” is a DIY EP, meaning all the recording happened at Hatem’s basement. It was definitely a learning experience and a lot of time and effort were allocated to learn music production. We tried to capture this moment in a making of music video.

.

.

.

 

Go into detail about your songwriting process.

Hatem, singer and rhythm guitar, is the main songwriter. It usually starts with a main riff that develops into a song structure then he shares it with the rest of the band. Bass and drums comes next, then leads and finally vocals.

.

.

.

 

Brief us on what you have on the way for your fans out there.

Francois recently joined the band as a lead guitar, and he is very proficient and a riff machine. We will be looking at releasing a full album by the end of the year with him.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you are doing to increase your fan base.

We are trying to play as much live venues as possible, also we are reaching out to blogs / music website and see if they could review / write about us or about the EP.

.

.

.

 

Tell us that point in time that you just feel like giving up on your music career.

We never give up on music; we are just so passionate about it!

.

.

.

 

Go into detail on how you make your instrumentation or melody.

There is no magic formula; I usually start playing random riffs at rehearsal, practice, etc…Until one of the things catches my attention. I then build upon it until I reach a song structure upon which I share with members of the band for feedback. If that works well we include the feedback and take it from there for leads and vocals

.

.

.

 

Tell us your complete understanding of copyright.

We have a pretty good understanding of the music copyright. Our EP is copyrighted and protected by Compass, which is the Singaporean equivalent of the US ASCAP or BMI. All the songs have ISRC code as well.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the best way to get in touch with you on social media.

The best way is definitely through our Facebook page

.

.

 

Tell us your favourite genre of music.

Heavy metal and progressive metal.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the subject matter of most of your songs.

It is mainly about injustice in this world and its implication to the weak people out there. Raped children, abused women forced into prostitution, terrorism victims…

.

.

.

 

Tell us all we need to know about this song.

This song is inspired by the movie of the same name and deals about prostitution from side, women and clients. It features an epic Gilmouresque solo from David Wallimann.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you think about digital distribution and streaming.

Digital distribution provides lots of opportunities to new bands to distribute their work at low cost. But unfortunately this creates competition and the market is flooded with lots of music. Your works need to stand out to be listened to. It also contributed a lot to the reduction of the music business as a whole.

.

.

.

 

Tell us various ways that artists can boost their revenue.

Merchandising definitely, but also premium / collector packages, vinyl, private encounters / lessons, etc… But to reach that level you need to build a strong presence in social media and become known, which is more and more difficult in today’s conditions.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your thought on self-training and going to

educational institution to study music.

I don’t have any opinion on it, as long as you can play good music then whatever way you’ve chosen would work for you.

.

.

.

 

Go on at length on what it takes to write a hit song.

I obviously didn’t write any hit song 🙂 but it will probably need simple structure, good melody and originality.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you will buy if you want to build your own studio.

Most probably a high end gear: guitar, bass amp and cabinets. Also a good sounding drum kit and excellent recording mics. A good desktop with wide screen and the best of UAD / Waves and Slate digital plugins

.

.

.

 

Go on at length on what it takes to gain the attention of the audience while playing live.

Stage presence and communion with public. Performance needs to be impressible and flawless as well

Callen

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Conner Edmunds & I grew up in California moving to Boston for school and then Nashville for music.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about yourself as an artist.

I started releasing songs under “Callen” because my middle name is Allen. I like the ring of it and also didn’t want to think too hard about a band name.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about the genre of your music.

The genre of my music is best described as indie pop because of its mixture of electronic and acoustic elements surrounding poppy vocal melodies.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about the story behind your song.

This song in particular was a fun co-write and collaboration with Evan Jenkins. It started out with a lyrical concept way out in left field and very hip hop, then turned into this ballad that’s not really saying “I love you,” but it’s saying “I’ve loved you for a while now and it took leaving to realize it.” When we were writing it I was picturing two kids growing up together as best friends in a “middle of nowhere esq town.” When they both move away; it takes missing each other for them to realize they should give love a try.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about the problems you are facing as a musician.

The problems I faced as a musician yesterday are a lot different from today; in fact they are completely different and new every day. Every real successful musician these days is an entrepreneur; using creativity to take on new challenges of the music biz. An interesting problem I’m facing right now is on my first release – “Silver & Gold.” A lot of bloggers and curators got back to me with “too pop.” It’s an interesting problem to have and can be interpreted in so many different ways.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.

“Silver & Gold” started out with a kind of melancholic piano progression that I had been singing “I’m ready to let go” over. I wasn’t really trying to write anything in particular. I was just trying to write about a moment of clarity I had recently come to in my life. In terms of recording and production, I developed this song by making loops and letting them develop over time. Once that was done I turned it into an arrangement and recording real instrumentation over it. I had a few friends come in and help me with instrumental ideas. I ended up chopping up their ideas to make new ones. It was fun to work without a deadline and have a community work on a project.

.

.

.

 

List the names of blogs, radio or TV stations that have supported you so far.

So far this will be the first blog besides Eternity Network to support “Silver & Gold”! So thank you so much. There are some local stations out in Nashville I’ll be going on for “Silver & Gold” in the coming weeks so I am excited for that. Audiotoxblog also just shared Silver & Gold!

.

.

.

 

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goals.

My music career is still in its beginning phase, but I’ve learned a lot in the past few years and am still learning a ton every day just by working with other people and attacking the new challenges artists face. My goals as an artist are to tell a hectic story through video and music and eventually connect everything I release, all in the process of reinventing myself.

.

.

.

 

Brief us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

On the regular, my motivation to create is more like a need. Creating music is a release that I would not be able to survive without, and I’m sure it’s the same way with a ton of other artists. What inspires lyrics for me most of the time are moments of clarity in looking back on life. (A-ha moments) When these happen I just become a lot more self-aware and it makes it real easy to write it out with taste.

.

.

.

 

Brief us the top-secret behind making a hit song.

I wish I knew the answer to what the secret is to “making a hit song,” but I am yet to write a hit. If I had to guess it’s a juicy sweet relatable spin on a cliché turned into a hook.

.

.

.

 

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

My advice to any upcoming artist is work hard on making your vision come to life, but don’t abandon your friends along the way. Music is not the only part of life that’s great. Invest in other people as much as you invest in yourself.

.

.

.

 

Discuss at length your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

My career in music includes a fair amount of DIY touring with “The American Indie,” whom I play drums for as a permanent member. We’ve been lucky enough to have one of our songs reposted by Alexrainbirdmusic and a couple of other bloggers that have given us a good start on generating a Spotify following. We are planning on releasing another EP in the near future with some bangers on it so that is exciting. As a drummer I’ve played for various artists and cover bands, and everything has been a great learning experience. I also play drums currently for a group called “Fontaine.” We are planning a release fairly soon on some songs that have been in the works for a really long time so that is also exciting. Go over to Facebook and follow both of these bands!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

I have a process as a producer now that changes fairly often, but stays within a certain template. There are a few constants in my flow. Most producers might be against this, but I am usually mixing a little bit and making post production tweaks as I am creating things part by part. Mixing as I’m producing just helps me see and hear what I am really going for. At the end of the day the whole process is done quicker! For the past few months I always start songs by just playing on an upright piano. When I’m writing lyrics in that process I write whatever immediately comes to my mind down and put it on the scrap page (usually the left page) and then writing actual lyrics on the right page. I always write down where the song is coming from, and am very literal with it because that helps me write with clarity.

.

.

.

 

Name the artists you are willing to collaborate with.

There are numerous artists I’d like to collaborate with. Two artists I currently can’t stop listening to & would love to work with in any capacity are “Great Good Fine Ok” & “Before You Exit.” If you haven’t heard of them then go check them out on Spotify, you won’t be disappointed! I also have been listening to a new artist named “Shallou” a lot lately. The productions coming from that artist are real smooth and actually make it really easy for me to focus on anything haha. So thank you Shallou!

.

State the links to your social networks and stores for purchase of your songs.

.

 

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

My saddest day is definitely when my tiny little scrumptious Boston Terrier bird eating dog died. My happiest day would currently is settling into Nashville. It still feels surreal. I love that city so much.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your song.

“Silver & Gold” is a song about anxiety & clarity.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you manage other activities with your music career.

Me and my friends all have a saying “my life is in shambles”.

.

.

.

 

Tell us five artists you can regard as legends.

Blackbear, Muse, Prince, Nirvana, The 1975 .

.

.

.

 

Tell us your future plans pertaining music.

My future plans pertaining to music include, releasing a ton of it and making a ton of video! I plan on making collaborative releases more common among indie rock and indie pop. I’ve noticed those are just more popular with Hip-Hop; its subgenera and pop.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you think about creativity and originality in music.

Originality is sweet when it sounds good. It’s pretty hard to come by anything purely original these days because there are so many genres saturating the music industry. I love original sound design on commercial music. I think Zedd is one of my favorite producers in terms of sound design. His new song (a great collaboration) is a banger. All of that being said, I don’t think it’s so crucial. I think you can still make a great song with sounds that are current. I think it’s better to not tie yourself down to ideas like the importance of being “original” when creating a song. It kind of ruins the flow if you are stressing out about something like that. Originality comes on so many different levels and I don’t think you can force “tasteful” originality.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the major reason you are into music.

I am into music because of its ability when done right to completely change someone’s life.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your view on old school music and new school music in terms of preference.

I make it a goal for myself to discover at least 10 songs a day. Spotify makes that real easy. I’m usually listening to modern music and things that are coming out now, but I am obsessed with Ray Charles. That’s been a thing for a while.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your most memorable day as an artist.

My most memorable day as an artist would be sitting down and listening to “The American Indie’s” first EP on big speakers after it was completely done. It was one of those “a-ha” moments I was talking about earlier. I was able to hear continuity within those 5 songs. I feel like we were both stressing on the idea of the whole EP having character that ties all the songs together, and listening to all the songs so many times in the creative process made it really hard to make any subjective statements on a listening perspective. I think that continuity and character or as most people call it “having a sound” can’t be forced or honed, but it can be supported after discovery.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you would do for the people if you found yourself in a position of power.

If I found myself in a position of power I’d reinvent Woodstock, but this is why I’m not into politics. Since having one million dollars would be considered a position of power, I’d take the first $500,000 and either start a foundation for music in third world countries or give it to a foundation that is already doing it like Playing for Change.

.

.

.

 

State the official date of release.

“Silver & Gold” was officially released on January 22nd.

FORBIDDEN SEASONS

Forbidden Seasons ‘Thank You For The Venom’:
Italian Metalcore Mob Reveal Video Single From Forthcoming Debut LP

Italian metalcore quintet Forbidden Seasons have unveiled the video for ‘Thank You For The Venom’. Featuring Suicide Girl Riae, vocalist Mark Seasons reveals: “The song talks about an ill relationship with someone very dear to me. They played with my life; tried to take advantage of my weaknesses and unconditional love, turning it into hatred and venom, consuming my soul. When in times of need this person tried to get back in touch, they managed to make me feel even worse; numb even though in my veins flows their own rotten blood. The video explains this relationship; the protagonist forced to interact with a mysterious and dark entity which ultimately despite all the efforts, manages to corrupt her, convincing her to consume its venom. With this track I wanted to release the evil which I’ve had inside for years. Even though I don’t usually like to talk about my personal issues, thanks to my band and family, I managed to open up.”

‘Thank You For The Venom’ is taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘Promise’, which will see release via This Is Core on 16th March 2018. The LP follows on from their 2017 debut, EP ‘Paramnesia’, with vocalist Mark Seasons saying of the title: “’Promise’ refers to all the promises made by people that are never fulfilled because of their selfishness.” The writing of the record began after their Russian tour in February 2017 and taking their time, recording took place over 7 months at HTR Studios in Turin. Covering such topics as loneliness, anger, apathy and misplaced trust, the outcome is self-described as “really reflecting who we are and the direction we want to take. Both in terms of sound and composition it’s very different from Paramnesia, heavier than our last work; we wanted to create a deeper sound according to our emotional state.” Melodically charged, beauty meeting darkness, their sound evokes Saosin and Underoath, Forbidden Seasons certainly are a promising prospect.

Hailing from Turin, Italy, the band is completed by Symon Ray on Lead Guitar, Danny Ghale on Rhythm Guitar, Paul J. Price on Bass and Federico Spagnoli handling both Drums and Keys. Founded in 2015, they simply came together as five individuals’ intent on realising their dreams to play music. Mark explains the moniker: “It’s about discrimination and lack of half measures in society. Everything is completely bad or good, black or white. There’s no space for gray anymore. Forbidden Seasons, it’s like forbidden feelings, forbidden thoughts, forbidden actions, forbidden goals… So we thought that name fit great with this idea.”

INHEAVEN

INHEAVEN – Sweet Dreams Baby

RETURN WITH BRAND NEW TRACK ‘SWEET DREAMS BABY’

New headline tour commences at the end of January

“Indie’s most dangerously exciting debut-album-darlings.” – NME

“INHEAVEN know their way around a tune. Boasting turbocharge riffs, instant hooks and the striking vocals of guitarist James Taylor and bassist Chloe Little, it is easy to see why Julian Casablancas’s label scrambled to spread their gospel in America.” – Q

“Noisy, riotous, anthemic and bristling with excitement, INHEAVEN is an album to rage along with.” **** – DIY

“There’s something special about INHEAVEN. With them leading the way, the new wave of British indie may actually stand a chance.” ***** – Dork

“INHEAVEN are one of the most exciting up-and-coming British bands around, with fans in all the right places, and a debut album full of 5* bangers, they’ve finally arrived.” **** – Upset

“a certified banger glistening with dreamy hooks and an anthemic quality which will have it replaying in your head all week.” – Wonderland

After a year in which they fulfilled several landmark ambitions, INHEAVEN today share their brand new track ‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ – their first new material since their critically acclaimed debut album was released last summer.

It comes after Huw Stephens highlighted the band in his Alternative Tips for 2018 list, and they were also praised by DIY in their Notable First Steps of the Year feature. They hailed INHEAVEN as “torchbearers for a new, vital era of British guitar bands.”

‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ is an anthem for those who are hoping for better things to come in 2018. “Ever wish you were someone else? Every wish you were somewhere else?” begins frontman James Taylor, expressing desires that many will identify with. Subsequently joined on vocal harmonies by Chloe Little, the duo’s lyrics remind people not to lose sight of their aspirations.

Sonically, ‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ echoes a succession of timeless American influences – from the insistent percussion of the great 60s girl groups to Springsteen’s yearning and the widescreen hooks of Kings of Leon. The track was produced by INHEAVEN’s regular collaborator Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Pixies, The Amazons).

The accompanying visual for the track is suitably dreamlike. It flickers between an exuberant band performance, sepia-tinged close-ups and intimate shots of Taylor’s vocal delivery.

INHEAVEN followed their debut album with the release of the ‘Acoustic’ EP. It featured their take on Ride’s 1990 shoegaze classic ‘Vapour Trail’ which prompted Vanyaland to comment that it’s “exciting when a new band filters it through their own musical lens.”
