Kevin Bernard SandersonKevin Bernard Sanderson (a.k.a.) Kevin BerSan is a self-contained artist/writer/producer who began playing music as a drummer in school bands. The challenge of finding other band members who work well together lead to me eventually learning to play other instruments as well.

It seems determination paid off for me as this is my first full album and it is winning fans everywhere. I’d much prefer just being a drummer in a band, but since my solo project is a hit, I’ll keep pushing it.Songs on the album are mostly r&b with one reggae-style song (track 3), one ’50s-style song (track 4) and one smooth jazz song (track 9) thank you and enjoy Kevin BerSan.

R&B The Classic Way with William Odell Hughes

William Odell HughesWilliam Odell Hughes is a R&B artist who makes you move, think and feel. “Everytime It Rains” is a mid-tempo R&B jam. You can’t help but add a little bounce to your step as you’re moving and grooving to this one. Moving on to “Is This How You Like It” we step up the beat a bit, while the vocals remain to have that classic R&B soul to them with a punch of funk overall in the track, but low key.

Then comes the booty…I’m not sure what I was expecting with titles like “Big Booty” and “Butt Rattle” but somehow my expectations were still met. When you listen it’s like booty anthems for the mature crowd out there, not so much the Nicki Minaj, and JLo listeners. In all seriousness though, after the booties come and go, you have a man who can write a real heartfelt and striking song. “Drive By Shooting” is a hard one to get through because of the compassion in the story and you feel every note.

The same goes for “Statutory Rape” as well. It’s clear that Hughes is all over the board with his music, but all the while remains classy and cool. If you’re into the standards when it comes to R&B, check out William Odell Hughes.

Mercury Down Alternative Featured Artist

Mercury DownIf you have ever wondered how a band gets started and what influences people to write music and lyrics, here it goes. Each of Mercury Down’s members has been involved in multiple bands over the last 20-30 years and has had influences from just about every genre of music.

Artists like The Beatles, Eric Johnson, Dada, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rush, Yes, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Wes Montgomery, etc…,

With all of this influence coupled with teaching and studio experience, the combination wouldfoster an amazing and diverse range of music and lyrics.

Mercury Down started as two solo projects in the fall of 2011. Larry Puterbaugh and Scott Shaver wanted to work on some of their own originals with Matt Cameron over seeing the production at his home studio. The initial idea was to lend their talents to each other’s originals. Cameron had a several songs of his own that were in need of some bass and vocals, so he decided to have Puterbaugh and Shaver trade studio time in exchange for work on his tracks.
There was no band collective in mind, explains Cameron, “just three projects that merged easily into one”, now known as Mercury Down. With new song ideas flooding in, the band decided tospend last year writing/recording, pushing the cd release to this year.

In the process of creating “Phases – Volume 1”, they started getting inspired with new musical ideas that began to transform into a second album. Stay tuned for “Phases – Volume 2” in the near future. It will include an amazing array of music that will more than complement the first album release.

Soul Chatter Is A Touch of Rock

March 4, 2015 in Featured Artist by Indie Artist Radio

SoulChatterSoul Chatter is roots rock, indie, folk-influenced, white soul, retro; ultimately the listener will decide what label(s) apply. We take the lyrics pretty damned seriously (at least the lyricist does) and work to create soul stirring compositions that stay with you, make you want to dig in a little. Intelligent, melodic, listenable rock songs with strong melodies, crisp guitar and rollicking keyboards. Toss in some horns and strings and plenty of heart.

Cleveland, back in the stone ages. The early 1980’s. Dark and dusty warehouses, long rehearsals, no money and trying to play only original music in a town with very few venues straying from a cover band format, especially with no local connections and certainly no pedigree. Modern music was hitting the radio. MTV had stumbled across its video format. We had real drums, a battered Wurlitzer electric piano, a couple of battle scarred amps and no ability or desire to play synth bass or a drum machine.

A band with three core members (keyboards, guitar and vocals) begins assembling original works. Ill-paid live performances, wallet-emptying studio projects and a revolving cast of support musicians straight out of The Commitments come and go. After a few years of long rehearsals, late night trips to Irv’s Deli and lots of very bad attempts at humor, the trio becomes a duo (the duo made this dubious mistake, but it has finally been rectified by the time of this writing). An ever-changing crew of characters join us for more studio sessions (whenever money other than that earmarked for rent was available) and the occasional ‘live’ performance.

Forgotten Paradise A short Film by Sylvia Love Johnson

Forgotten ParadiseIn search for the answer of some of the most important questions in life, two young boys 8 and 10 years old put into action their creative skills, they decide to make a film about fear and loneliness. Research, a spirit of adventure and pure child like reasoning results in a surprising turn of events. A hearty, emotionally uplifting comedy, with poetic elements of spiritual awakening.

A short Film by Sylvia Love Johnson

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”Aristotle

Forgotten Paradise is an emotionally uplifting poetic piece seeking the attention of our youngest audiences. This ‘children’ genre film with simplistic and age appropriate content incorporates adventure, fantasy and imagination elements in a realistic manner, from the point of view of children creating stories and making films. It demonstrates a moral massage based around the concepts of fear and loneliness. We attempt at decomposing these feelings to find the real essence in them and then conclude that such feelings are but the creation of our own minds.

The idea was born from the desire to exploit “fear/s” which govern the majority of our awaken life as human beings; these feelings/emotions block our growth, our development, our achievement path and more. Thus the need teach our children to perceive ‘fear’ differently from an early age.

“Education is teaching our children to desire the right things” Plato
