AkasaAkasa is a  singer,  songwriter, performance artist and conceptualist of positive-message music videos. Her cross genre music contains the fusion of Rock, Pop, World, New Age, Jazz and Classical music. She brings many of these talents together on her latest recording, Portal. “My sonic vision is to serve as a bridge between all of the world’s cultures, to show the beauty of our diversity, and to help promote a greater awareness of our similarities,” says Akasa. “I want to do what I can to help the world heal and inspire our society of human-beings in reaching its full creative potential.” Akasa works toward these heroic goals in subtle ways using gentle music,visually-interesting story-line videos, and lyrics sung in a variety of languages (including Latin, Native American, English and her own original Akashic language). Akasa’s vocalizations are ethereal, mystical and enchanting.  Her music was inspired by her life experiences in exploring the depth of the individual psyche and finding the meaning and possibility in human experiences. In some of her songs, she used her imagination to paint a sonic journey into the cosmos and the unknown realm.

Akasa’s music contains authentic emotional expressions and multicultural elements. There are sounds for healing, expanded consciousness and transformation. “The main message in my music,” Akasa explains, “is encouraging everyone to set their inner spirit free, discover their own unique gifts, and become a creative force making a better world. I also believe in using love and compassion as the means for helping people understand their past, , heal their psychic wounds and begin recognizing and transforming any negative emotional patterns.”

Akasa writes the lyrics and vocalizations as well as much of the music. She is assisted in composing and creating the music by keyboardists and co-producers Morris Hayes (Prince, Chaka Kahn, Martika, George Clinton), Nick Michaels (Pete Townsend, Robert Calvert of Hawkwind, Tara London), Aaron Michael Stern (Jon Anderson of Yes, Tin Soldier, Charles Castronovo) and Andre Mieus (Steven Lee, and a CD titled The Tempered Klavier). Special guests Bill Scott plays guitar on “Let Us Be” and Shenkar (Shakti, Frank Zappa, Sting, Yoko Ono) bows viola and sings backing vocals on “Sky Children.”

Emma Cairo Passionate Country Rock Singer

April 18, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

Emma CairoEmma Cairo Release
“Southern Songs from the North”
I am a passionate country rock singer, residing in Los Angeles, yet I am originally from Denmark, Scandinavia,
The tranquil darkness and melancholy of the North is the backdrop of my music. I mix it with the emotional and feisty temper of the South. Along with a profound love for the US, this creates my soundscape. And, now, the time has come to share it with the world! I have just released my EP, Southern Songs from the North.


After having toured in Asia and the Middle East, I realized that we are all flakes of dust in an infinite universe. This realization filled me with inspiration and love for the universe and for music – the magical vibrations of the cosmos. The art of controlling these vibrations is my calling.
I am often referred to as “The Uncrowned Viking Princess of Country Music.” However, I plead for your help in retrieving my actual crown! Even princesses need exposure.
Your services to the crown will not go unnoticed!

Mike Vale – A Life in Music

April 18, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

| Website | Facebook |

Mike ValeMike Vale has been doing what he does best for 55 years now: writing and recording great music. His new CD, ‘In My Dreams’ marks his 20th album as either a solo artist or part of a band. In an age when pop and rock careers seem to survive not much longer than Andy Warhol’s notorious 15 minutes, that in itself is something to be applauded.
But more than that, this new collection of 10 original songs is as fresh and true a picture of a musical life as you are likely to hear this year. 74-year-old Vale has put all he has learnt over five decades in the business into a heartfelt record that is at one time sad, poignant, uplifting and beautiful.

His music on this album, as it has been throughout a long and successful career, cannot be pigeon-holed into genre. It is certainly rooted in the blues and country, but there are elements of pop, rock and even soul in this wonderful, timeless mix. With influences spanning Ray Charles, Van Morrison and, latterly, Ray LaMontagne, it is no surprise that ‘In My Dreams’ encompasses a wide range of styles.

As Mike himself says, this is “music for music’s sake” and these are songs that will appeal to anyone who loves what music should be about: the heart. That has been the case throughout Mike’s career. He has performed as a member of The Raconteurs and, more famously, Tommy James And The Shondells, whose 60s hit ‘Crystal Blue Persuasion’ penned by Vale & James, enjoyed a renaissance when it was used to soundtrack an episode of cult TV series ‘Breaking Bad’. Vale’s new album employs the talents of Donna Groom, Don Garvin and Jack Hunt, with technical assistance coming from former Shondells ally and long-time friend Tommy James. It’s quite a line-up of talent, and it is quite a record. The feedback from the industry has already been impressive and the tracks have been played on more than 50 radio stations across the US and beyond.

For those who don’t already know the incredible sound of Mike Vale, ‘In My Dreams’ is the perfect introduction.

STARTR3K JONES to Release His First Single, ALIEN

February 25, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

| Website | Facebook | Twitter |

STARTR3KJON3SDC’s premier rock/alternative pop/hip-hop recording artist & songwriter STARTR3K JONES will release his first single, ALIEN, from his highly anticipated debut album BEYOND, which is expected to be released in mid spring 2014. ALIEN, which will be released everywhere music is sold worldwide under independent DC-based record label Itrinity(e) Music Group, falls more on Startr3k’s hip hop spectrum and will have its listeners dancing in the club.
When asked about his inspiration behind ALIEN, Startr3k had this to say “The inspiration behind Alien came from people’s misperception of me. So many people assumed that I wouldn’t be able to produce a song like Alien, let alone execute it then keep rolling with the punches. I made Alien for all the people that underestimated me. I also gathered inspiration from people who told me to be the best at whatever I do and by being different my music harder to replicate.
A lot of artists just stick to one sound and stay in that same box.  I’m an artist; I create best with no limits and no boundaries.I want and need I have a tenacity to be different. I need my music to be a platform for real talent. I’m here to set the bar HIGHER. This is no longer an earthly issue; this has become a war in the cosmos. Dare to be different.  I did….”
”I’m taking particularly sensitive care with this project and artist Startr3k Jones.. “ says Itrinity(e)’s CEO, Dwight “Turbo” Dillard “so much so that I’m hand picking specific collaborative artists for Startr3k Jones’ new album ‘Beyond’, which is slated for release in early spring 2014 and features Fat Trel, David Correy and many more well known artists”.
