With “All The World’s A Stage, award winning percussionist Tom Teasley has created a feast of soundscapes with the rhythms and sounds of instruments from around the world. There are so many colors and textures of the Middle East and Asia. Teasley plays instruments that many have never heard of, including the aquasonic, balafon, bodhran, cajon, didgi-harp, riqq, melodica, coumbek, Korg wavedrum, Roland HandSonic, MalletKat, and bansari whistle. Nice mix of acoustic, and electronic percussion with endless possibilities.

It’s always a treat getting a project from a percussionist, because when you are a supporting musician, your job is to make the lead performer sound as good as possible, and not necessarily to display all of the skills you have within your arsenal of skills. Now, on this 9 track CD, music fans will get to connect with a wide range of exotic sounds, and something as simple as a whistle takes on a different purpose when used for percussion, most notably on the track “Rise Up”. The voice is another interesting ‘instrument’ when applied by Mr. Teasley, not like a beat box but with the techniques used in Indian music, heard on “Fuska and Varuna”. This is a CD that will bring you to new places and you’ll be glad that you took the trip. Happy travels.

Revolver Underground Now Broadcasting On Indie Artist Radio

March 20, 2012 in News by TMC

Indie Artist Radio is proud to announce a brand new show on the #1 Indie Station

Revolver Underground will be a vast internet music network, initially specializing in the independent, Top 40 market and existing as an outlet for independent artists to bring their work to the world. Through the process of natural evolution, the initially capitalized independent segment will progress until virtually all musical genres are included and distributed globally via a multi channel internet radio experience.

We believe that this method of musical conveyance has not been taken advantage of to it’s fullest potential. In the past, ‘indie’ artists have been left to fend for themselves. Without corporate support, without global airplay, without a ‘chance’ in the grand scheme of success as defined by the contemporary music industry. As has become popular knowledge…this is no longer the case. Read the rest of this entry →
