Blame Kelli Ward for this earworm! The video just makes me smile.
A couple years ago, a friend of mine sent me a link to a Serbian musician named David Maxim Micic and his EP called "Bilo".For lack of a better descriptor, think Middle Eastern inspired progressive rock with jazz influences.
This came from an evening of amazing accidental discovery: first, a super talented young guitar player and Berkeley student named Maddie Rice, taste technique and tone! Then, checked out a session she did with an artist named Drew ofthe Drew, a funk bassist/dub step artist-producer which was totally sick! The vocalist on that session, Joanna Teters, blew me away with her Soulful smoky voice.
This is Jim. You heard me speak of my friend Joel from California, while here he is. When was the last time you saw a solo bass player singing a blues tune incorporating tuvan throat singing?. Here, that's where! A full Band arrangement can be found on Joels CD called "82 Feet of Water". Click here to check out Joel's disc.
This is an international guitar duo you've heard weekday mornings with Jim and Dee. Loren is from central New York, Mark is from New Zealand I saw them open for Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, they practically stole the show! Take a look at their website here, and check out the video which was shot in Rochester during the show I attended!
A while back, I ended up dialing a wrong number and left a message. As a joke, the recipient of my message called back and it turned out to be a talented young singer from Geneva named Dana Zona!
