Crystal Bowersox, a northwest Ohio native currently calling Nashville home, has built her life around music.  Crystal’s love for music developed at an early age from a need to find peace in a chaotic world. Through art and creation, Crystal was able to direct her energy and emotion, finding a way to mend a mind in turmoil.  For her, music was always the most effective form of catharsis, and she would play for anyone, anywhere. In her own words, “my guitar was an appendage. I couldn’t live without it.”

Dead set on a career in music, Crystal moved to Chicago as a teenager, where she spent her days performing underground on subway platforms in between working odd jobs. While in the big city, she broadened her musical horizons and shared her talents with a variety of venues, ultimately auditioning for the ninth season of American Idol. Crystal’s time on the show proved to be well spent, as she immediately left the the soundstage for the recording studio. Since her introduction to the world through television, Crystal has released two LP’s, two EPs,  and several singles. Additionally, she has used her talents to benefit several causes close to her heart, and has become an advocate and inspiration for people living with Type 1 Diabetes.

However, it is what’s in front of her, not what’s behind her, that will define Crystal’s personal and professional evolution. The accomplished singer-songwriter is set to release a new project – a live album, recorded at the Kitchen Sink Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, cleverly titled Alive. Not only is the title a play on words, representing the rawness of the tracks, but it pertains to the place where Crystal currently is in her life.  That place is one of joy, fulfillment, and stability for Crystal and her eight year old son, Tony.

To create her newest project, Crystal called on her “chosen family” of musicians. The combination of keeping those she cherishes close to her and taking an honest look at life has resulted in the truest music she has released to date. Crystal has drawn on her various influences —  across folk-pop, classic rock, soul, blues and country — to make the kind of music that resonates with her spirit. It is both tender and tough, rough yet polished, and it encompasses many genres without falling neatly into one category. As one of her songwriting partners describes it, Crystal has “a voice like dirt and diamonds.” Her music is intended to bring a positive message of love and light to the world – things that folks will be able to take with them on their own journey, so that they, too, can feel truly alive.

Similar to her beginnings, Crystal intends to make music that has healing power, but at this point, she sees far beyond her own troubles. Her live show is a safe space for concertgoers. Attend a Crystal Bowersox show, and you just might see a grown man cry and a child dance simultaneously. You’ll also likely get the chance to meet her personally; Crystal is typically the first one to arrive and the last one to leave the venue. Meeting with the fans and hearing their personal stories is something Crystal considers a blessing in her life.

By reliving her own painful moments in song, Crystal hopes to transcend that pain, lifting herself and her audience to a higher place. In the opening lines of “A Broken Wing” she sings, “I know there’s beauty in the burden / And even on my darkest day that sun will shine.” Crystal’s story is one of resilience and perseverance, and it’s evident in every note of her newest release, Alive.

The Ballroom Thieves fought through a year of tribulations with their sophomore album, 2016’s Deadeye, as their shield and sword. Only through continuing to write and perform together were guitarist Martin Earley, cellist Calin Peters, and drummer Devin Mauch able to fend off their darker days. While the skies may not be completely clear, the path ahead is — and the trio take their first steps forward today.

The next phase begins with their new single, “Only Lonely,” a track that harnesses the Thieves’ handsome harmonies and nimble, sturdy acoustic folk. Though disarmingly warm, the lyrics expose the terrible version of oneself that emerges when an unhealthy mental state gains control. “I think anyone who has struggled with depression, anxiety, or profound loneliness can identify with the idea that sadness is at once a passenger and a conductor,” says Earley, “and sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference.”

Just as the Thieves survive on the strength of their reliance on each other, however, the chorus of howls throughout the song remind the listener that we never battle alone. “Depression can be an isolating maze, but despite the reclusive heaviness of the words in the song we attempt to keep a team mentality when a band mate, partner, or friend is living in the darkness,” says Peters. “The band remains and gains strength after the touring years have taken their toll, sometimes howling as one, other times answering the cry of distress, but always relentlessly singing.”

That pack mentality pervades all aspects of the upcoming EP from which “Only Lonely” stems. It’s what pushed Peters to step into the writer’s role more than ever, a challenge she admits she may never have undertaken if not for the buoying of Early and Mauch.

” I feel powerful and proud of myself for trying something new, and also sort of protected and encouraged by the guys,” she proclaims. They’ve also rallied a brand new team for this latest outing, with producer Ryan Hadlock joining them for the first time and the support of a new label, Nettwerk Records. “They believed in what we were doing artistically and they weren’t going to try to affect that,” says Earley. “That’s a really incredible thing to hear from a label, especially one of that size and that reputation.”

More details on the EP are forthcoming, but their Nettwerk debut single makes one thing clear: The Ballroom Thieves are stronger together than ever, and they’re ready to confront both inner and outer demons with the assurance of a band that’s only begun to rise.

VoicePlay is unlike any theatrical experience available today, recreating the orchestrated sound of an entire musical production with nothing but the the human voice.

The cast of VoicePlay has taken the timeless sound of vocal music and turned it completely on it’s head.

2016, Laith Al-Saadi won America’s hearts and a spot in the finale of NBC’s The Voice. Now he’s poised to bring his authentic blend of blues, soul and classic rock to audiences around the nation and the world.

Laith Al-Saadi has always had the perfect combination of Midwestern hustle and incredible musical chops – honed at the University of Michigan school of music in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and on stages across the country working with legends like Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Son Seals, Gregg Allman and B.B. King.

“Laith is one of the most diverse talents we have,” said Maroon 5 frontman and ‘The Voice’ coach Adam Levine. “Incredible guitar player, incredible singer.”

Entertainment Weekly called Laith Al-Saadi “a power performer who is so legitimate and memorable.”

Audiences have agreed, propelling Al-Saadi’s most recent release, REAL, to the top of the blues chart for five weeks and the top 20 album chart for two weeks. Laith also had four singles in the top ten iTunes singles charts, and his albums In The Round and Long Time Coming spent time at the top of the rock and album charts.

Guitar World Magazine has called Laith Al-Saadi a cross between “Danny Gatton and Buddy Guy at their best,” and Guitar Center crowned him one of the top four blues guitarists in the United States.

Laith Al-Saadi Martha Redbone is one of the most vital voices in American Roots music. A multi award-winning musician, the charismatic songstress is celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music embodying the folk and country sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky mixed with the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn. With her gospel singing father’s voice and the spirit of her Cherokee/Choctaw mother’s culture, Redbone broadens the boundaries of Americana. Her break-out CD with Martha Redbone Roots Project, The Garden of Love – Songs of William Blake, was produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder/Grammy Winner John McEuen. “A brilliant collision of cultures,” lauded the New Yorker of Martha’s magnificent voice, Blake’s immortal words and a masterful cornucopia of roots music… folk, country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul, and traditional American Indian.

Redbone and her long term collaborator, pianist Aaron Whitby are called “the little engine that could” by their “band of NYC’s finest blues and jazz musicians” (Larry Blumenthal). From a humble beginning with residencies at the original Living Room on the Lower East side and at Joe’s Pub and nationally at powwows across Indian Country in support of her debut album, Home of the Brave (“Stunning album, the kind of woman who sets trends” Billboard), Redbone has built a passionate fan base with her mesmerizing presence and explosive live shows. Her album Skintalk is described as the soulful sound of “Earth, Wind and Fire on the Rez” (Native Peoples Magazine) and is recognized as an example of Contemporary Native American music in the Permanent Library Collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. She was named a 2015/16 Fellow of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation.

Currently Redbone is developing BONE HILL, a musical theaterpiece, based on the stories of her Appalachian mining family’s heritage and history. In the piece Redbone travels back in time to her own childhood and beyond into the memories and tales of her Cherokee ancestors revealing an untold American story fueled a wide range of American music. Commissioned by Joe’s Pub/The Public Theater arts’ initiative, New York Voices, and a recipient of the New England Foundation for the Arts/National Performance Network.

Over the last decade Connecticut native Stephen Kellogg has performed more than 1500 concerts around the world, raised thousands of dollars for causes close to his heart, been named Armed Forces Entertainer of the Year, and penned singles for artists like “American Idol” winner Nick Fradiani and legendary guitarist Robert Randolph. He’s also had his songs covered by international major label acts and released eight albums of his own that have yielded hundreds of thousands of ticket and album sales.

When it comes to performing, CBS radio has called him “the best live act you’ve never seen” and another writer for No Depression gives him the oddly flattering title “the best songwriter you’re not listening to.” Filmmaker Peter Harding was so moved by the underground nature of Stephen’s story that he made a documentary called “Last Man Standing” which went on to become an Amazon exclusive film. While it’s true that Kellogg may not currently be a household name to everyone, he has persisted in building a substantial career that has landed him onstage with some of the biggest and best touring bands in the world (Train, Sugarland, Jason Isbell, Sara Bareilles, Hanson and OAR to name a few). Kellogg’s music has found it’s way onto the Billboard charts and been featured in numerous films and TV shows. His Americana-tinged, folk, pop and rock stylings can make his sound hard to define, but to his core this musician and father of four brings heart and incredible energy to everything he does.

For all the innovation and invention that goes into modern music these days, it’s the inspiration derived from one’s roots that proves the most enduring. So credit Galway, Ireland’s We Banjo 3 for finding common ground between old world tradition and authentic Americana by plying their banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin in an innovation fusion of styles that they dub “Celtgrass.”

Four albums in — their latest, String Theory, was released in July of 2016 — the band’s rousing revelry, sheer virtuosity, power, passion and purpose have made them one of the music world’s most celebrated ensembles. Variously described as “astonishing,” “the Gold Standard of Irish and American Roots music,” and “the Irish Punch Brothers,” they’ve can claim the # 1 position in Billboard’s World Music charts, top honours from IMRO (the Irish Music Rights Organization), top sales numbers and the distinction of entertaining an American president, an Irish Prime Minister and members of the U.S. Congress at the annual “Friends of Ireland” luncheon on Capitol Hill. Little wonder then that We Banjo 3 is literally taking both sides of the Atlantic by storm, carving a reputation as one of the world’s most imaginative ensembles.

Of course, all results are generally due to the sum of the parts, and the individuals involved here all contribute to the common cause. Made up of two sets of siblings — brothers Enda Scahill (tenor banjo, vocals) and Fergal Scahill (fiddle, viola, dobro, percussion, guitar, mandolin, vocals) and brothers Martin Howley (tenor banjo, mandolin, vocals) and David Howley (lead vocals, guitar) – We Banjo 3 finds a natural symmetry as well as a cohesive chemistry that’s been imbued in the band ever since they were initially drawn to one another by their common creative interests. Inspired by the traditional Irish and Americana music they heard growing up, they placed three banjo players in the mix in the beginning, eventually diversifying their sound while broadening their boundaries as well.

Likewise, the individual members brought a credence that extended well beyond their family connections. Martin is a seven-time all-Ireland banjo champion and the first Irish musician to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. Enda has recorded with Ricky Skaggs, the Chieftains and many others, aside from being considered as one of the world’s leading authors and authorities on Irish banjo techniques. Fergal has performed with dozens of artists at home and abroad, and is widely recognized as an Irish champion of both fiddle and bodhran. David has been cited as a solo artist of exceptional skill, while Garry is a veteran of work with numerous bands and individual artists.

Likewise, the evolution in the group’s sound followed a natural progression that evolved early on. Their 2012 debut album, Roots of the Banjo Tree, leaned entirely on banjo music and the various styles implied by that instrumental arsenal. Their critically acclaimed sophomore set, Gather the Good, released in 2014, furthered that vantage point, an aural summation of the impressions and experiences gained while touring the U.S. and their initial introduction to Nashville that was followed by the release of 2015‘s Live in Galway, recorded in the same small hometown pub where the band performed their very first gig.

Their new album, String Theory, appears to be a change in their tack, but only slightly. Half traditional covers, half original material, it finds the band’s reverence for their roots given a contemporary twist, further solidifying the common bonds between the two styles. The various jigs and reels underscore the band’s celebratory stance, but on a tender ballad like the 17th century soliloquy “Two Sisters,” the mix of love, jealousy and evil intent sound tailor made for modern times. While the instrumental interplay is in evidence as always, each individual musician adds his own distinctive style, further affirming their collective cause.

Christopher Cross made history with his 1980 self
titled debut album, winning five Grammy
Awards, including
for the first time ever
the four most prestigious awards: Record of the Year
(for the single “Sailing”), Album of the
Year, Song of the Year (also for “Sailing”), and Best New
Artist.
Now, 30+ years after his extraordinary emergence into the music business, Cross continues his
recording and performing career with a new album,
Secret Ladder, that evokes the artistry of su
ch
great singer
songwriters as Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman while addressing contemporary
concerns head
on
a combination which is sure to please his loyal fan base.
Indeed, the 13 tracks, mostly written with his longtime collaborator Rob Meurer, contin
ues the
exploration of adult subject matter broached in his preceding album
Doctor Faith (2011). “My
passion and commitment to music haven’t diminished a bit, and I make no apologies for exploring
mature subjects,” says the San Antonio native, now living i
n Austin after decades in Southern
California.
“Of course, I’m still a romantic at heart,” adds Cross, whose classic hits
including “Ride Like the
Wind,” from
Christopher Cross, and the Oscar
winning “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)”
f
rom the film starring Liza Minelli and Dudley Moore
remain staples on radio to this day.
This romantic side is readily evident on
Secret Ladder
songs like “Simple,” in which he elicits the
tuneful sense of love and serenity that marked “Sailing.” But fro
m the album’s first song, Cross
evinces a sharpened focus in addition to his
magic melodic touch.
The bluesy “Reverend Blowhard” “is an unvarnished commentary on TV evangelists,” says
Cross.
He acknowledges a definite cynicism in this opening song that be
ars the influence of both
Newman and Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, “who are lifelong influences on the
songs Rob and I write.”
There are other
hard
hitting
songs on
Secret Ladder, most notably “Got To Be a Better Way,” which
rails against a
man “seething in his world of carbohydrates and TV” while lacking any empathy for
his fellow man, and “Island of Anger.” “We look back at our lives and see the idealism when we
were kids,” Cross reflects, “and then look at the way things are now
and see ho
w so many are
disillusioned and almost immobilized with outrage.”
Yet Cross remains a spiritual, if not religious, artist, and the
Secret Ladder
album title manifests this.
The conceptual album cover art, by photographer/graphic designer Sandrine Lee, expr
essly suggests
a Magritte painting in its depiction of human figures climbing the fretboard of an upright acoustic
guitar
surrounded by a blue sky filled with clouds, at the same time invoking Joni Mitchell’s lyric in
“For the Roses”
“And pour your simple
sorrow / To the sound hole and your knee.”
“I write my songs on the guitar, and that’s how I realize my spirituality” says Cross. “Music is the
source, the wellspring. The people coming out of the guitar’s sound hole on the cover are climbing
the ladd
er to a higher plane.”
Cross also notes that Secret Ladder’s “I Don’t See it Your Way” is a Joni Mitchell
influenced
track.
“I dedicated my last album to her,” says Cross. “She
remains my
biggest influence,
musically.
She’s
a hero to both Rob and me.
Th
is song is
about the end of a relationship, and we
tried to write it in a very Joni
like feel and style.”
As always, Cross enlisted the finest support musicians, including bassist Will Lee (of the Fab Faux
and
Late Night with David
Letterman), drummer Kei
th Carlock (Steely Dan and Toto), guitarist Eric Johnson, saxophonist
David Mann, and vocalists Michael McDonald and Jeff Foskett (Brian Wilson’s musical director).
“Eric and Michael are usually on every record I make,” says Cross, and in McDonald’s c
ase, he joins
Cross vocally on the poignant and uplifting anthem, “Light the World,” which also features an
African chorus alternating the lyrics in Swahili.
“I have
travelled
to Africa
with my kids, my daughter was a youth AIDS ambassador,” explains
Cross
. “She helped with testing in a village in Tanzania and spent another week in Kenya. I was very
touched by the people I encountered there.
I wrote the song with Stephen
Bray
who is a close
friend
and a wonderful collaborator. He worked with Madonna early
in her career and composed music
for
The Color Purple
on Broadway.
For the Swahili chorus, we enlisted the assistance of the
interpreter we had in Africa who was the head of African Studies at UCLA. It is really
a magical
component to the song. You feel l
ike you know what they’re saying, even though you don’t.”
“The Times I Needed You” employs a vocal chorus, arranged by Meurer, intentionally reminiscent
of the Beach Boys. “It’s very much a tribute,” says Cross. “Brian Wilson’s writing was a big
influ
ence on me
and
Carl Wilson was my No. 1 vocal influence growing up. Years later, we became
very close.
Carl
sang on my second album (1983’s
Another Page), and we did a lot of touring
together and vocal sessions for other artists. He’d always say, ‘We make
a nice sound’
I just
treasure that.”
While Cross is an avowed pacifist, he is a big supporter of those who serve in the armed
forces.
Secret Ladder
includes the late
added track, “We Will Remember You,” as a means of
honoring their service.
“My fath
er was an Army doctor and my mother, a nurse,” he says. “I feel strongly that returning vets
and those who made the ultimate sacrifice deserve to be recognized and never forgotten. The song
itself is neither pro
nor anti
war. The children’s choir
really e
nhances the message. We recorded it
after the album was finished, but
I
felt
that it definitely needed to be included.”
Cross’ own children influenced the instructive “Wonderland,” a dreamy, lyrical take on reality which
is enlivened by Johnson’s rock
guitar play. “It’s a general thesis on where things are, a way of
looking at life,” says Cross, “and how we’re wishful for our kids
and their future. At the same
time,
it’s hard not to be frustrated and cynical.”
Secret Ladder
ends with the loving, l
ushly orchestrated “A Letter to My Children.” “It’s a very

For 18 years I have undergone the ritual of walking the red carpet at the Juno Awards and endured the same experience,” reported guitar impresario Jesse Cook, on the phone from Oregon prior to flying into Toronto to perform at two concerts at the Rudolph Theatre which are being televised as PBS specials.

“As I walk down the carpet, the E Talk Daily crew runs past me in pursuit of the Swollen Members or whoever is the flavour group/artist of the year. Next year when I take the same walk, that band/artist has gone missing and they are chasing someone else.

“Meanwhile I still have an audience, I still sell records, I still perform concerts all over the world. I figure that one day, E Talk is going to say `who is that guy we keep running past, maybe we should stop and talk to him?

One thing Jesse Cook doesn’t have to worry about is being a flavour of the year tag. Ever since his breakthrough at the 1995 Catalina Jazz Festival in California where an impromptu performance which triggered a 10-minute standing ovation before he had even performed a note, Cook capitalized on the ensuing publicity to push his debut “Tempest” album into the Billboard charts at No14.

Born in Paris to photographer John Cook and TV producer Heather Cook, young Jesse constantly moved between Paris, the Arles region of France and Barcelona where he picked up an interest in flamenco music.

Cook proved to be a child protégé, enrolling in the prestigious Eli Kassner Guitar Academy in Toronto after his parents divorced and his mother moved him and brother back to Canada. From there it was on to the Royal Conservatory of Music, York University and Berklee College in Boston.

During visits to his estranged father who had moved to Arles, Cook became acquainted with his father’s next door neighbour Nicholas Reyes, who happened to be lead vocalist for the renowned Gypsy Kings flamenco band.

Since the release of “Tempest”, Cook has reeled off six more records and three performances DVD, all of which have registered either gold or platinum sales marks. Cook’s latest release, “The Blues Guitar Sessions” released in 2012 is enjoying a similar success story.

Known to the masses as `that flamenco guy’, Cook notes his guitar styling are much more wide ranging, as reflect in his new release. “I love flamenco music; a true flamenco artist is the best guitar player on the planet. The unfortunate thing is because we live in the West, we don’t have an appreciation of what flamenco is.”

“When I started as a kid, it was as a classical guitarist with some flamenco training,” continued Cook. “Then I went to jazz school and learned jazz improvisation and later turned back to flamenco. Now what I do now is none of the above. My musical style is now more of a fusion; I am trying to find out what happens when you mix it all together. Now I appreciate we live in a sound-bite culture so when someone asks me `what is it that you actually do if you are not a flamenco artist. What are you; Country, Heavy Metal?

“I realize what I do is not for everybody,” Cook explained. “I make music I like to hear. I have an
esoteric taste in music. “Some people don’t get it and I quite accept that yet some people love it, that’s why my music is so subjective.”

Yet considering Cook’s music receives virtually no radio exposure and his albums aren’t exactly a hot selling item at Costco, Cook accepts he has to be creative in marketing his product. This involves constant touring plus a series of PBS concert specials recorded for the North American market.

“Normally, I try to restrict my touring to short segments, but having said that, I have just completed a European tour, a Canadian tour plus about 70 dates in the U.S, it’s what you’ve got to do to sell records these days,” explained Cook. “It’s no longer possible to browse through a record department to find your favourite albums, those departments don’t exist anymore. It’s all about the Top Twenty CD’s that are being sold at Costco, or Walmart or Target. If you are not in that Top 20, you’re not selling CD’s at retail.”

Cook is also disturbed that in his opinion, all music on commercial radio follows the same formula. “The hooks are up front, the chorus is up front, they’ve auto-tuned the snot out of the vocals, every beat is corrected by computer – this is how you have to sound to get on radio. But I am saying this as people queue up in droves for McDonalds or Starbucks coffee and other things that are manufactured en masse. Yet at the end of the day I believe people want something with a little more humanity to it.”

“I don’t live in the world where I sell millions of records, I am completely out of that box,” he continues. “If people buy my records, it’s because they’ve seen my shows or it’s a word of mouth thing.”

Another problem for Cook is that he doesn’t release singles that can be downloaded on to MP3 players. His recording world is albums, a form of process that is becoming increasingly obsolete. “I grew up in the world of albums. I love to play an album from track one, listen to the whole thing, I immerse myself in it. Yet the majority of people who listen to music don’t list to complete albums. They download from one track to another but they lose the sequencing of an album. Imagine downloading track seven from Sgt Pepper and then track three from Abbey Road or re-sequencing Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon. You lose the entire sequencing of the record. Correct sequencing has always played an important part of me producing a record. My records are created to be heard in sequence.

One method Cook has utilized to promote his records is television exposure of his concerts via a series of PBS specials. “PBS is a fantastic outlet for people like me to get my music heard. They will play entire concerts,” noted Cook. “I had played at the Montreal Jazz Festival and the organizers gave me a DVD copy of my performance. Problem is they always shoot these concerts the same way. The cameras are locked in position, there’s no dark spots on stage, it’s all illuminated for the camera, the audio and video are mixed simultaneously as the concert progresses. They virtually hand you a copy of the show as you walk off the stage – but they are all so generic looking.

Even in this state, Cook found he could get some mileage from the DVD’s but he wanted a better performance so he decided to shoot his own performance. Cook couldn’t secure any financial investment so he rented out the Rose Theatre in Brampton Ontario in 2012 and shot his own show. “I had no budget whatsoever so I called in a group of young movie students to produce the show, passed on a mobile and instead stuck a hard drive on the mixer. I had friends show up with their cameras and shot the show – the result was that it looked and felt like a movie.

Cook took the resulting production to the PBS convention in Denver, working the halls, handing out flash drives of the show’s highlights. “PBS stations are all autonomously programmed – it’s not like one person makes a decision for the whole network – but we got four or five stations playing the concert. Then it was 20 to 25 and after five months we had over 50 stations airing the show, some of them repeatedly.

Encouraged by the results, Cook decided to shoot another show to promote his Blues Guitar Session release resulting in two dates at Toronto’s Randolph Theatre in April. “Bit more of a budget but I am essentially using the same people and the same production techniques,” explains Cook. “This time we have firm commitments in place from a number of PBS stations including key stations in Chicago and Boston. They don’t pay for the programming but the exposure they provide is invaluable.”

Cook may continue to get a cold shoulder from the E-Talk Daily crew but his popularity is international and his product sales are consistently solid. His music is utilized by such sources as Russian figure skater Irina Slatskaya who won a bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Beijing dancing to `Mario Takes A Walk’. He has also opened for the likes of B.B King, Ray Charles and Diana Kroll, appeared on records by several artists including a 13-year old Charlotte Church,Holly Cole and Liona Boyd.

Cook meanwhile is committed to more concert activities as his criss-crosses the globe promoting his new recording. “We’re musicians, we have to tour to pay my bills, that is what we do,” concludes Cook. “I really don’t have many other options. I’d make a lousy dentist.”

ARTIST BIO

For 18 years I have undergone the ritual of walking the red carpet at the Juno Awards and endured the same experience,” reported guitar impresario Jesse Cook, on the phone from Oregon prior to flying into Toronto to perform at two concerts at the Rudolph Theatre which are being televised as PBS specials.

“As I walk down the carpet, the E Talk Daily crew runs past me in pursuit of the Swollen Members or whoever is the flavour group/artist of the year. Next year when I take the same walk, that band/artist has gone missing and they are chasing someone else.

“Meanwhile I still have an audience, I still sell records, I still perform concerts all over the world. I figure that one day, E Talk is going to say `who is that guy we keep running past, maybe we should stop and talk to him?

One thing Jesse Cook doesn’t have to worry about is being a flavour of the year tag. Ever since his breakthrough at the 1995 Catalina Jazz Festival in California where an impromptu performance which triggered a 10-minute standing ovation before he had even performed a note, Cook capitalized on the ensuing publicity to push his debut “Tempest” album into the Billboard charts at No14.

Born in Paris to photographer John Cook and TV producer Heather Cook, young Jesse constantly moved between Paris, the Arles region of France and Barcelona where he picked up an interest in flamenco music.

Cook proved to be a child protégé, enrolling in the prestigious Eli Kassner Guitar Academy in Toronto after his parents divorced and his mother moved him and brother back to Canada. From there it was on to the Royal Conservatory of Music, York University and Berklee College in Boston.

During visits to his estranged father who had moved to Arles, Cook became acquainted with his father’s next door neighbour Nicholas Reyes, who happened to be lead vocalist for the renowned Gypsy Kings flamenco band.

Since the release of “Tempest”, Cook has reeled off six more records and three performances DVD, all of which have registered either gold or platinum sales marks. Cook’s latest release, “The Blues Guitar Sessions” released in 2012 is enjoying a similar success story.

Known to the masses as `that flamenco guy’, Cook notes his guitar styling are much more wide ranging, as reflect in his new release. “I love flamenco music; a true flamenco artist is the best guitar player on the planet. The unfortunate thing is because we live in the West, we don’t have an appreciation of what flamenco is.”

“When I started as a kid, it was as a classical guitarist with some flamenco training,” continued Cook. “Then I went to jazz school and learned jazz improvisation and later turned back to flamenco. Now what I do now is none of the above. My musical style is now more of a fusion; I am trying to find out what happens when you mix it all together. Now I appreciate we live in a sound-bite culture so when someone asks me `what is it that you actually do if you are not a flamenco artist. What are you; Country, Heavy Metal?

“I realize what I do is not for everybody,” Cook explained. “I make music I like to hear. I have an
esoteric taste in music. “Some people don’t get it and I quite accept that yet some people love it, that’s why my music is so subjective.”

Yet considering Cook’s music receives virtually no radio exposure and his albums aren’t exactly a hot selling item at Costco, Cook accepts he has to be creative in marketing his product. This involves constant touring plus a series of PBS concert specials recorded for the North American market.

“Normally, I try to restrict my touring to short segments, but having said that, I have just completed a European tour, a Canadian tour plus about 70 dates in the U.S, it’s what you’ve got to do to sell records these days,” explained Cook. “It’s no longer possible to browse through a record department to find your favourite albums, those departments don’t exist anymore. It’s all about the Top Twenty CD’s that are being sold at Costco, or Walmart or Target. If you are not in that Top 20, you’re not selling CD’s at retail.”

Cook is also disturbed that in his opinion, all music on commercial radio follows the same formula. “The hooks are up front, the chorus is up front, they’ve auto-tuned the snot out of the vocals, every beat is corrected by computer – this is how you have to sound to get on radio. But I am saying this as people queue up in droves for McDonalds or Starbucks coffee and other things that are manufactured en masse. Yet at the end of the day I believe people want something with a little more humanity to it.”

“I don’t live in the world where I sell millions of records, I am completely out of that box,” he continues. “If people buy my records, it’s because they’ve seen my shows or it’s a word of mouth thing.”

Born and raised in Southern California, Karla Bonoff was a songwriter by the age of fifteen. She and her sister Lisa were writing songs and playing as a duo titled “The Daughters of Chester P” named after their father, Dr. Chester Paul Bonoff. She had already fallen in love with the guitar and studied with Frank Hamilton of the famous folk group, The Weavers. By 16, Karla and her sister Lisa auditioned for Elektra Records. An 11-song demo [recorded by Doors’ engineer Bruce Botnick] was recorded but no deal came of this first effort.

Karla’s sister became a teacher of history and religion, but Karla’s passion was always music. She became friends with other singer-songwriters and musicians [in the ’60s] who were creating their own unique sound. She talks about lining up at the legendary Troubadour at noon on Mondays to get a slot in the famous Monday night Troubadour “hoot,” which was a breaking ground for many artists who went on to great success. She says, “It was an amazing time. Jackson Browne, James Taylor and Elton John were around the Troubadour in those days.” There were some other writer-singers who became friends of Karla’s, and eventually, they decided to put a band together. They were Kenny Edwards, (who had started the Stone Poneys with Linda Ronstadt and Bobby Kimmel), Wendy Waldman, and Andrew Gold. Something powerful in their combined sound drew them together. Thus the band Bryndle was born – one of the early songwriter groups, even before the Eagles. The band made an album for A&M, but it was never released. They were, unfortunately, a bit ahead of their time.

Speaking of the A&M project, Karla says, “They didn’t release it. I think they didn’t really know quite what to make of it. This was right before Crosby, Stills and Nash, and before Fleetwood Mac. We were these two girls and two guys… the closest thing they could compare us to was the Mamas and the Papas. They actually had Lou Adler [producer for the Mamas and Papas] produce a single to try to make us like that. In the next few years, had we stayed together, I think we could have done well.” A single, with Karla singing lead, was released from those sessions, but failed to forward the band’s career. “It was a hit in Santa Maria [California],” Karla remembers. Bryndle broke up, but it launched four very illustrious careers. Kenny and Andrew joined Linda Ronstadt’s band, and through that connection, Ronstadt was to hear a demo of hers. Karla recalled playing a tape of “Lose Again” for her. “Hey, you know that’s real good,” Bonoff remembers Ronstadt saying, “What else have you got?” On Linda’s “Hasten Down the Wind” album [released in 1976], there were three Bonoff songs: “Someone to Lay Down Beside Me,” “If He’s Ever Near” and “Lose Again.”

As Ronstadt was scoring hits with Karla Bonoff songs, Karla herself was signed as a solo artist to Columbia Records in 1977. There, she not only recorded the three songs Linda had done, but also the hit single “I Can’t Hold On” and the tune “Home,” which later wound up on one of Bonnie Raitt’s albums. The producer of this great first album [and the next two] was Karla’s old friend and partner, Kenny Edwards. Bonoff then embarked on a solo tour to promote her album, and by the time she reached Seattle, “I Can’t Hold On” was Number 1 in the Pacific Northwest. “I was headlining and I barely had enough songs to play,” Karla recalls, still amazed at the memory. “So I just kept playing them longer!” She went from there to coveted spots on major tours, opening for James Taylor and Jackson Browne and earning a rave review in Time magazine. Two subsequent albums, “Restless Nights” [released in 1979] and “Wild Heart of the Young” [released in 1982], established Karla as one of LA’s major artists and songwriters. Musicians such as Russ Kunkel, Joe Walsh, Waddy Wachtel, Danny Kortchmar, Don Henley, Timothy Schmit, Peter Frampton, Bill Payne, J.D. Souther, and her old partners from Bryndle, Wendy Waldman, Andrew Gold and Kenny Edwards all participated in the making of these wonderful records. Bonoff had a big hit with “Personally,” from her album “Wild Heart of the Young” – a song Karla did not write. “I’m sure there’re people out there who only know me from this song, but I really enjoyed singing and recording it.”

Her fourth album, New World [first released in 1988], was originally released on Gold Castle, and is now available on the Valley Entertainment label. Karla began to tour in Japan, where audiences fell in love with her, and where she became a very successful artist – and continues to be to this day. There’s been work in film – she and J.D. Souther wrote songs for the motion picture “About Last Night.” She is also the voice on the Tom Snow/ Dean Pitchford song from “Footloose” called “Somebody’s Eyes.” In 1994, Karla had a top-ten AC hit single with a song from the film “8 Seconds,” called “Standing Right Next to Me.” This track was produced by the legendary Keith Thomas (a longtime fan of Karla’s) and written with her old partner, Wendy Waldman. Throughout the years, Karla has continued to do what she does best. She’s toured with Bonnie Raitt, John Prine, J.D. Souther and others, building up a passionate audience, resulting in sold-out houses everywhere. In 1990, strange things began to happen in Karla’s life. Her career came full circle. She wrote three songs which wound up on her old friend Linda Ronstadt’s album “Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind.” “All My Life,” a duet with Ronstadt and Aaron Neville, won the Grammy for Best Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. People magazine ranked “All My Life” as one of the top 5 most popular wedding songs.

In 1993, Karla’s song “Tell Me Why,” sung by the legendary Wynonna Judd [with Karla on acoustic guitar, and Bryndle members singing backup vocals], was the title song to Wynonna’s second album, and a tremendous hit. The Eight Seconds soundtrack album [released in 1994], featured the aforementioned “Standing Right Next to Me” and a duet with Vince Gill on “When Will I Be Loved,” [a ’70s hit for Linda Ronstadt] bringing Karla’s sound to an even bigger Country music audience.

Karla and her three old partners, Kenny Edwards, Andrew Gold and Wendy Waldman, then decided it was time to put Bryndle back together again. The thought had always been there, but now with each person having experienced many successes alone, there was much more to bring to the Bryndle experience. “When we decided to put this band back together,” Bonoff explains, “we realized that one of the things that was wrong with it the first time was that we all wrote separately. We thought it would be great to write together this time. It’s been new and really fun to do that, the four of us.” Twelve out of the 14 songs on Bryndle’s CD were written as a group. In the fall of ’95, after four years of hard work, the first Bryndle CD came out, released in the United States and Japan. The band toured Japan in the summer, then began to tour the United States. Karla had some incredible showstoppers on the record and onstage. “On the Wind,” “Under the Rainbow” and “Daddy’s Little Girl” brought the house down every single night no matter where Bryndle played. Bonoff fans flocked to the shows and were thrilled to see her with her old friends, having a great time. In 1996, Andrew Gold left the band but Bryndle continued on, performing into the summer of 1997.

A duet with the Dirt Band, “You Believed in Me,” written with Wendy Waldman, was released in January of that year on a prestigious MCA album honoring the 1996 Olympics.

In 1999, Sony/CBS Legacy released “All My Life – The Best of Karla Bonoff,” a 16-song fully remastered collection spanning Karla’s entire career. An extensive article by Billboard Editor-In-Chief Timothy White and an interview with Karla were included with the CD.

Progress on Bryndle’s follow-up CD [with the working title of “Bryndle 2”] stopped and started after 1997 and for a few years, it appeared there might not be another release by the band. At one point, parts of the unfinished “Bryndle 2” digital recordings were lost in a hard drive crash – a nearly fatal omen to the project. Meanwhile, Karla [accompanied by Kenny Edwards] began touring more as a solo act as Bryndle stopped performing live.

In 2001, enthusiasm for the “Bryndle 2” project built up within the band and the recording pace intensified. Regular sessions took place at Kenny’s Santa Barbara studio and Wendy’s San Fernando Valley “Long House Studio.” Former bandmate Andrew Gold contributed to the recording as well. Finally, in the first week of 2002, “House of Silence,” the second collection of songs from Bryndle, was independently released. Although there’s a different feel to the recording compared with the first album, it still reflected the unique sound that these artists make when their talents merge. Autographed editions of this CD are available from the Karla Bonoff Store and it’s been released in Japan through Japan/JVC. Karla often plays the song “(My Heart Is) Like A Compass” from this release when she tours.

In November of 2002, Karla, Kenny Edwards and Wendy Waldman played their first show together under the Bryndle banner in more than 4 years. The setting was an intimate house concert in the Los Angeles area. Rumors of a CD release of “The House Concerts” have begun circulating. Although there are no plans for Bryndle presently, the members remain friends and there’s always the possibility of future recordings and performances.

In a 2000 magazine article, Karla described herself as “semi-retired” – content with going out on short tours a few times a month. But she’s also talked of recording a new album as well – perhaps at home. “I’d like to make a record completely for myself, one that isn’t governed by what other people in the business think it needs to be,” she said. “I don’t have to go audition. I don’t need a record company to pay for it. I can put it out on the Internet and it doesn’t really cost anything. If a record company picks it up, great. If they don’t, it doesn’t really matter.”

“I always had somebody mad at me because I wasn’t making records, keeping up the pace,” revealed Ms. Bonoff, who writes about four songs a year. “I’m really not that prolific – I think I’ve spent so much time trying to fit a round peg into a square hole that I just sort of worked my way out of wanting to write anymore. And I got a bad taste in my mouth about not being able to just be myself. I think in the time I’ve taken off, I’ve watched music change to the point where I really see songwriters – and women in particular – being able to write about what they want to. So it encourages me to just go, ‘You know what? I’m just going to write whatever I want, and I’m just going to make the record I want.'” When it comes, a new collection of songs from Karla Bonoff will be exactly her vision of what it should sound like, and well worth the wait.

In 2007, Karla finally released a live double CD, a project she had talked about for years. “I think many of these songs have improved with age and and I have never really documented what we do.” Karla recorded all but one song of it at a small club in Santa Barbara with her long time touring band, Kenny Edwards and Nina Gerber, plus Scott Babcock on percussion.

Karla continues to perform all over America. Often after her concerts, Karla talks with fans and signs CDs and well-worn LP covers people bring to her shows. Japan has also been very supportive of Karla’s music and she’s toured there twice in recent years. An expanded version of her “Best Of” CD collection as well as Bryndle’s “House of Silence” were released in Japan in 2002.

Sadly, during the summer of 2010, Kenny Edwards required an emergency med-flight back to his home in Southern California, and was hospitalized with rapidly advancing prostate cancer. He passed away peacefully August 18th in Santa Barbara CA among an outpouring of loving words, thoughts, generosity, and kindness from friends and fans around the world. Karla expressed her loss, “I want to thank Kenny for being my teacher, my musical partner and my best friend for the last forty-three years.”

Karla’s legacy as a writer and perseverance as a performer are spoken best in a Billboard Magazine review of Karla’s “All My Life” recording. “Long before Alanis and Jewel, there was a breed of singer/songwriters whose earthly anthems of soul-searching, heartache and joy touched souls in a way few can muster today.”

In 1999, Sony/CBS Legacy released “All My Life – The Best of Karla Bonoff,” a 16-song fully remastered collection spanning Karla’s entire career. An extensive article by Billboard Editor-In-Chief Timothy White and an interview with Karla were included with the CD.

Progress on Bryndle’s follow-up CD [with the working title of “Bryndle 2”] stopped and started after 1997 and for a few years, it appeared there might not be another release by the band. At one point, parts of the unfinished “Bryndle 2” digital recordings were lost in a hard drive crash – a nearly fatal omen to the project. Meanwhile, Karla [accompanied by Kenny Edwards] began touring more as a solo act as Bryndle stopped performing live.

In 2001, enthusiasm for the “Bryndle 2” project built up within the band and the recording pace intensified. Regular sessions took place at Kenny’s Santa Barbara studio and Wendy’s San Fernando Valley “Long House Studio.” Former bandmate Andrew Gold contributed to the recording as well. Finally, in the first week of 2002, “House of Silence,” the second collection of songs from Bryndle, was independently released. Although there’s a different feel to the recording compared with the first album, it still reflected the unique sound that these artists make when their talents merge. Autographed editions of this CD are available from the Karla Bonoff Store and it’s been released in Japan through Japan/JVC. Karla often plays the song “(My Heart Is) Like A Compass” from this release when she tours.

In November of 2002, Karla, Kenny Edwards and Wendy Waldman played their first show together under the Bryndle banner in more than 4 years. The setting was an intimate house concert in the Los Angeles area. Rumors of a CD release of “The House Concerts” have begun circulating. Although there are no plans for Bryndle presently, the members remain friends and there’s always the possibility of future recordings and performances.

In a 2000 magazine article, Karla described herself as “semi-retired” – content with going out on short tours a few times a month. But she’s also talked of recording a new album as well – perhaps at home. “I’d like to make a record completely for myself, one that isn’t governed by what other people in the business think it needs to be,” she said. “I don’t have to go audition. I don’t need a record company to pay for it. I can put it out on the Internet and it doesn’t really cost anything. If a record company picks it up, great. If they don’t, it doesn’t really matter.”

“I always had somebody mad at me because I wasn’t making records, keeping up the pace,” revealed Ms. Bonoff, who writes about four songs a year. “I’m really not that prolific – I think I’ve spent so much time trying to fit a round peg into a square hole that I just sort of worked my way out of wanting to write anymore. And I got a bad taste in my mouth about not being able to just be myself. I think in the time I’ve taken off, I’ve watched music change to the point where I really see songwriters – and women in particular – being able to write about what they want to. So it encourages me to just go, ‘You know what? I’m just going to write whatever I want, and I’m just going to make the record I want.'” When it comes, a new collection of songs from Karla Bonoff will be exactly her vision of what it should sound like, and well worth the wait.

In 2007, Karla finally released a live double CD, a project she had talked about for years. “I think many of these songs have improved with age and and I have never really documented what we do.” Karla recorded all but one song of it at a small club in Santa Barbara with her long time touring band, Kenny Edwards and Nina Gerber, plus Scott Babcock on percussion.

Karla continues to perform all over America. Often after her concerts, Karla talks with fans and signs CDs and well-worn LP covers people bring to her shows. Japan has also been very supportive of Karla’s music and she’s toured there twice in recent years. An expanded version of her “Best Of” CD collection as well as Bryndle’s “House of Silence” were released in Japan in 2002.

Sadly, during the summer of 2010, Kenny Edwards required an emergency med-flight back to his home in Southern California, and was hospitalized with rapidly advancing prostate cancer. He passed away peacefully August 18th in Santa Barbara CA among an outpouring of loving words, thoughts, generosity, and kindness from friends and fans around the world. Karla expressed her loss, “I want to thank Kenny for being my teacher, my musical partner and my best friend for the last forty-three years.”

Karla’s legacy as a writer and perseverance as a performer are spoken best in a Billboard Magazine review of Karla’s “All My Life” recording. “Long before Alanis and Jewel, there was a breed of singer/songwriters whose earthly anthems of soul-searching, heartache and joy touched souls in a way few can muster today.”

Project/Object is the longest continually touring alumni-based Zappa tribute band in the world. For nearly twenty five years they have toured and performed Zappa music with more of his bandmates than anyone other than Zappa himself. Project/Object tours of the USA, Canada & Europe have paved the way for a rich variety of excellent, contemporary Zappa tribute acts.

Project/Object is the band that brought most of the currently touring Zappa alumni out of retirement and onto the road. To date, almost twenty musicians, from every era of Zappa’s history, have performed with Project/Object. The band is back on the road with a short tour that reunites old bandmates Napoleon Murphy Brock & Denny Walley. The setlist features material that they performed on tour together with Frank, as well as Zappa classics and faves from other albums they did with him.

Napoleon Murphy Brock, the frontman for Zappa’s early seventies bands, first appeared on the breakthrough album Apostrophe (‘), then handled lead vocals and sax for the incredibly popular Roxy and Elsewhere.  His vocals on One Size Fits All are legendary, and he appeared with Denny Walley on the iconic Bongo Fury, which documents Zappa’s 1975 collaborative tour with his old friend Captain Beefheart. Brock went on to tour with fellow Zappa alum George Duke, and with Duke reached new heights in the hugely popular George Duke Band. Napoleon later provided harmony vocals for Sheik Yerbouti, one of Zappa’s biggest selling albums. He also appears on Thingfish and You Can’t Do That Onstage Anymore – Helsinki.

Denny Walley, a key member of Zappa’s mid 70s and early 80s tours, is the band member that goes back the furthest with Frank – they met during the 8th grade! Denny brought his incendiary slide guitar work to many Zappa tours and albums, splitting time as Captain Beefheart’s slide guitarist as well. Denny appears on what is arguably Beefheart’s greatest work: Bat Chain Puller, and on Zappa favorites like Joe’s Garage and You Are What You Is. Denny not only performed with Zappa on SNL a few times, but later became a set-builder for the show!

Denny Walley, a key member of Zappa’s mid 70s and early 80s tours, is the band member that goes back the furthest with Frank – they met during the 8th grade! Denny brought his incendiary slide guitar work to many Zappa tours and albums, splitting time as Captain Beefheart’s slide guitarist as well. Denny appears on what is arguably Beefheart’s greatest work: Bat Chain Puller, and on Zappa favorites like Joe’s Garage and You Are What You Is. Denny not only performed with Zappa on SNL a few times, but later became a set-builder for the show!

Project/Object is the longest continually touring alumni-based Zappa tribute band in the world. For nearly twenty five years they have toured and performed Zappa music with more of his bandmates than anyone other than Zappa himself. Project/Object tours of the USA, Canada & Europe have paved the way for a rich variety of excellent, contemporary Zappa tribute acts.

Project/Object is the band that brought most of the currently touring Zappa alumni out of retirement and onto the road. To date, almost twenty musicians, from every era of Zappa’s history, have performed with Project/Object. The band is back on the road with a short tour that reunites old bandmates Napoleon Murphy Brock & Denny Walley. The setlist features material that they performed on tour together with Frank, as well as Zappa classics and faves from other albums they did with him.

Napoleon Murphy Brock, the frontman for Zappa’s early seventies bands, first appeared on the breakthrough album Apostrophe (‘), then handled lead vocals and sax for the incredibly popular Roxy and Elsewhere.  His vocals on One Size Fits All are legendary, and he appeared with Denny Walley on the iconic Bongo Fury, which documents Zappa’s 1975 collaborative tour with his old friend Captain Beefheart. Brock went on to tour with fellow Zappa alum George Duke, and with Duke reached new heights in the hugely popular George Duke Band. Napoleon later provided harmony vocals for Sheik Yerbouti, one of Zappa’s biggest selling albums. He also appears on Thingfish and You Can’t Do That Onstage Anymore – Helsinki.

For 18 years I have undergone the ritual of walking the red carpet at the Juno Awards and endured the same experience,” reported guitar impresario Jesse Cook, on the phone from Oregon prior to flying into Toronto to perform at two concerts at the Rudolph Theatre which are being televised as PBS specials.

“As I walk down the carpet, the E Talk Daily crew runs past me in pursuit of the Swollen Members or whoever is the flavour group/artist of the year. Next year when I take the same walk, that band/artist has gone missing and they are chasing someone else.

“Meanwhile I still have an audience, I still sell records, I still perform concerts all over the world. I figure that one day, E Talk is going to say `who is that guy we keep running past, maybe we should stop and talk to him?

One thing Jesse Cook doesn’t have to worry about is being a flavour of the year tag. Ever since his breakthrough at the 1995 Catalina Jazz Festival in California where an impromptu performance which triggered a 10-minute standing ovation before he had even performed a note, Cook capitalized on the ensuing publicity to push his debut “Tempest” album into the Billboard charts at No14.

Born in Paris to photographer John Cook and TV producer Heather Cook, young Jesse constantly moved between Paris, the Arles region of France and Barcelona where he picked up an interest in flamenco music.

Cook proved to be a child protégé, enrolling in the prestigious Eli Kassner Guitar Academy in Toronto after his parents divorced and his mother moved him and brother back to Canada. From there it was on to the Royal Conservatory of Music, York University and Berklee College in Boston.

During visits to his estranged father who had moved to Arles, Cook became acquainted with his father’s next door neighbour Nicholas Reyes, who happened to be lead vocalist for the renowned Gypsy Kings flamenco band.

Since the release of “Tempest”, Cook has reeled off six more records and three performances DVD, all of which have registered either gold or platinum sales marks. Cook’s latest release, “The Blues Guitar Sessions” released in 2012 is enjoying a similar success story.

Known to the masses as `that flamenco guy’, Cook notes his guitar styling are much more wide ranging, as reflect in his new release. “I love flamenco music; a true flamenco artist is the best guitar player on the planet. The unfortunate thing is because we live in the West, we don’t have an appreciation of what flamenco is.”

“When I started as a kid, it was as a classical guitarist with some flamenco training,” continued Cook. “Then I went to jazz school and learned jazz improvisation and later turned back to flamenco. Now what I do now is none of the above. My musical style is now more of a fusion; I am trying to find out what happens when you mix it all together. Now I appreciate we live in a sound-bite culture so when someone asks me `what is it that you actually do if you are not a flamenco artist. What are you; Country, Heavy Metal?

“I realize what I do is not for everybody,” Cook explained. “I make music I like to hear. I have an
esoteric taste in music. “Some people don’t get it and I quite accept that yet some people love it, that’s why my music is so subjective.”

Yet considering Cook’s music receives virtually no radio exposure and his albums aren’t exactly a hot selling item at Costco, Cook accepts he has to be creative in marketing his product. This involves constant touring plus a series of PBS concert specials recorded for the North American market.

“Normally, I try to restrict my touring to short segments, but having said that, I have just completed a European tour, a Canadian tour plus about 70 dates in the U.S, it’s what you’ve got to do to sell records these days,” explained Cook. “It’s no longer possible to browse through a record department to find your favourite albums, those departments don’t exist anymore. It’s all about the Top Twenty CD’s that are being sold at Costco, or Walmart or Target. If you are not in that Top 20, you’re not selling CD’s at retail.”

Cook is also disturbed that in his opinion, all music on commercial radio follows the same formula. “The hooks are up front, the chorus is up front, they’ve auto-tuned the snot out of the vocals, every beat is corrected by computer – this is how you have to sound to get on radio. But I am saying this as people queue up in droves for McDonalds or Starbucks coffee and other things that are manufactured en masse. Yet at the end of the day I believe people want something with a little more humanity to it.”

“I don’t live in the world where I sell millions of records, I am completely out of that box,” he continues. “If people buy my records, it’s because they’ve seen my shows or it’s a word of mouth thing.”

Another problem for Cook is that he doesn’t release singles that can be downloaded on to MP3 players. His recording world is albums, a form of process that is becoming increasingly obsolete. “I grew up in the world of albums. I love to play an album from track one, listen to the whole thing, I immerse myself in it. Yet the majority of people who listen to music don’t list to complete albums. They download from one track to another but they lose the sequencing of an album. Imagine downloading track seven from Sgt Pepper and then track three from Abbey Road or re-sequencing Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon. You lose the entire sequencing of the record. Correct sequencing has always played an important part of me producing a record. My records are created to be heard in sequence.

One method Cook has utilized to promote his records is television exposure of his concerts via a series of PBS specials. “PBS is a fantastic outlet for people like me to get my music heard. They will play entire concerts,” noted Cook. “I had played at the Montreal Jazz Festival and the organizers gave me a DVD copy of my performance. Problem is they always shoot these concerts the same way. The cameras are locked in position, there’s no dark spots on stage, it’s all illuminated for the camera, the audio and video are mixed simultaneously as the concert progresses. They virtually hand you a copy of the show as you walk off the stage – but they are all so generic looking.

Even in this state, Cook found he could get some mileage from the DVD’s but he wanted a better performance so he decided to shoot his own performance. Cook couldn’t secure any financial investment so he rented out the Rose Theatre in Brampton Ontario in 2012 and shot his own show. “I had no budget whatsoever so I called in a group of young movie students to produce the show, passed on a mobile and instead stuck a hard drive on the mixer. I had friends show up with their cameras and shot the show – the result was that it looked and felt like a movie.

Cook took the resulting production to the PBS convention in Denver, working the halls, handing out flash drives of the show’s highlights. “PBS stations are all autonomously programmed – it’s not like one person makes a decision for the whole network – but we got four or five stations playing the concert. Then it was 20 to 25 and after five months we had over 50 stations airing the show, some of them repeatedly.

Encouraged by the results, Cook decided to shoot another show to promote his Blues Guitar Session release resulting in two dates at Toronto’s Randolph Theatre in April. “Bit more of a budget but I am essentially using the same people and the same production techniques,” explains Cook. “This time we have firm commitments in place from a number of PBS stations including key stations in Chicago and Boston. They don’t pay for the programming but the exposure they provide is invaluable.”

Cook may continue to get a cold shoulder from the E-Talk Daily crew but his popularity is international and his product sales are consistently solid. His music is utilized by such sources as Russian figure skater Irina Slatskaya who won a bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Beijing dancing to `Mario Takes A Walk’. He has also opened for the likes of B.B King, Ray Charles and Diana Kroll, appeared on records by several artists including a 13-year old Charlotte Church,Holly Cole and Liona Boyd.

Cook meanwhile is committed to more concert activities as his criss-crosses the globe promoting his new recording. “We’re musicians, we have to tour to pay my bills, that is what we do,” concludes Cook. “I really don’t have many other options. I’d make a lousy dentist.”

Laith Al-Saadi Martha Redbone is one of the most vital voices in American Roots music. A multi award-winning musician, the charismatic songstress is celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music embodying the folk and country sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky mixed with the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn. With her gospel singing father’s voice and the spirit of her Cherokee/Choctaw mother’s culture, Redbone broadens the boundaries of Americana. Her break-out CD with Martha Redbone Roots Project, The Garden of Love – Songs of William Blake, was produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder/Grammy Winner John McEuen. “A brilliant collision of cultures,” lauded the New Yorker of Martha’s magnificent voice, Blake’s immortal words and a masterful cornucopia of roots music… folk, country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul, and traditional American Indian.

Redbone and her long term collaborator, pianist Aaron Whitby are called “the little engine that could” by their “band of NYC’s finest blues and jazz musicians” (Larry Blumenthal). From a humble beginning with residencies at the original Living Room on the Lower East side and at Joe’s Pub and nationally at powwows across Indian Country in support of her debut album, Home of the Brave (“Stunning album, the kind of woman who sets trends” Billboard), Redbone has built a passionate fan base with her mesmerizing presence and explosive live shows. Her album Skintalk is described as the soulful sound of “Earth, Wind and Fire on the Rez” (Native Peoples Magazine) and is recognized as an example of Contemporary Native American music in the Permanent Library Collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. She was named a 2015/16 Fellow of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation.

Currently Redbone is developing BONE HILL, a musical theaterpiece, based on the stories of her Appalachian mining family’s heritage and history. In the piece Redbone travels back in time to her own childhood and beyond into the memories and tales of her Cherokee ancestors revealing an untold American story fueled a wide range of American music. Commissioned by Joe’s Pub/The Public Theater arts’ initiative, New York Voices, and a recipient of the New England Foundation for the Arts/National Performance Network.

2016, Laith Al-Saadi won America’s hearts and a spot in the finale of NBC’s The Voice. Now he’s poised to bring his authentic blend of blues, soul and classic rock to audiences around the nation and the world.

Laith Al-Saadi has always had the perfect combination of Midwestern hustle and incredible musical chops – honed at the University of Michigan school of music in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and on stages across the country working with legends like Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Son Seals, Gregg Allman and B.B. King.

“Laith is one of the most diverse talents we have,” said Maroon 5 frontman and ‘The Voice’ coach Adam Levine. “Incredible guitar player, incredible singer.”

Entertainment Weekly called Laith Al-Saadi “a power performer who is so legitimate and memorable.”

Audiences have agreed, propelling Al-Saadi’s most recent release, REAL, to the top of the blues chart for five weeks and the top 20 album chart for two weeks. Laith also had four singles in the top ten iTunes singles charts, and his albums In The Round and Long Time Coming spent time at the top of the rock and album charts.

Guitar World Magazine has called Laith Al-Saadi a cross between “Danny Gatton and Buddy Guy at their best,” and Guitar Center crowned him one of the top four blues guitarists in the United States.

ARTIST BIO

2016, Laith Al-Saadi won America’s hearts and a spot in the finale of NBC’s The Voice. Now he’s poised to bring his authentic blend of blues, soul and classic rock to audiences around the nation and the world.

Laith Al-Saadi has always had the perfect combination of Midwestern hustle and incredible musical chops – honed at the University of Michigan school of music in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and on stages across the country working with legends like Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Son Seals, Gregg Allman and B.B. King.

“Laith is one of the most diverse talents we have,” said Maroon 5 frontman and ‘The Voice’ coach Adam Levine. “Incredible guitar player, incredible singer.”

Entertainment Weekly called Laith Al-Saadi “a power performer who is so legitimate and memorable.”

Audiences have agreed, propelling Al-Saadi’s most recent release, REAL, to the top of the blues chart for five weeks and the top 20 album chart for two weeks. Laith also had four singles in the top ten iTunes singles charts, and his albums In The Round and Long Time Coming spent time at the top of the rock and album charts.

Guitar World Magazine has called Laith Al-Saadi a cross between “Danny Gatton and Buddy Guy at their best,” and Guitar Center crowned him one of the top four blues guitarists in the United States.
