Music Reviews, North America, Kentucky
Musicians give back to hometown children in the arts charity with compilation CD.
Artists and Musicians with roots in Southern Kentucky recently came together in the recording studio to benefit the Son Rhea Foundation, a children and the arts charity.

The CD compilation project, dubbed Jambodians, features Grammy winners Sam Bush, Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters) and Curtis Burch along with Bill Lloyd, Tommy Womack, Jonell Mosser and more than forty others.
The majority of the Bluegrass to Blues, Celtic to Pop, Country to Rock and Roll project was recorded at Sound Wave Studio in Nashville TN by Grammy winning producer and engineer Richard Adler.
The Jambodians are those who spent their musically formative years in the Bowling Green KY area performing original music during the 70's and early 80's.

Bands such as New Grass Revival (Sam Bush, Curtis Burch), The Kentucky Headhunters (Greg Martin, Richard Young, Fred Young), Southern Star (Bill Lloyd, Kim Ritchey, Randy Goodman), Government Cheese (Tommy Womack), Kenny Lee Blues Band (Jonell Mosser, Byron House) are only a few examples.
Each year at Christmas, the Jambodians and their friends gather in Bowling Green to give their time and talent to the Son Rhea Foundation's Holiday Bash.
The annual concert is a fund raising and Arts awareness event with non-stop performances crossing all musical boundaries.

All the proceeds from the sale of this CD go to providing musical instruments and other art related needs for children who might otherwise not afford them.

Europe, Sweden, Music Reviews - Culloden
By Fredrik Joachimsson
My Name is Fredrik Joachimsson from Sweden. I formed my band Culloden in 2002, and we've been rehearsing since. Not a single show have we played yet! I've worked hard to get the sound that I wanted, both on the CD's that I produce and with the guys that I play with! Throughout these two years I believe I've changed a lot musically. It started when my first keyboard .. Read more...

Europe, Uk, Music - Watch out for bogus competitions on
the Internet By Glenn Williams (Lazyswede Productions)
Back in 1998 I saw on the internet a song writing competition and decided to read more about it. The more I read, the better it sounded but something in the back of my head told me something was not right with this! I decided to email them and they replied sending me the entry forms and a short note stating that this year the competition was free! Read more...

Asia, Russia, Music - Dr. Agranovsky &
The Black Bread Band
What are bands made of? Sometimes of haphazard people and stuff bound by a chain of coincidences. Sometimes they are assembled on purpose, but that's another story. Dr. Agranovsky - man and group - grew out of the Moscow "kitchen blues". This story started in 1972, when Agranovsky brothers (parents off on vacation) had their home open for part-time-job-most-time-rambling musicians and Moscow.. Read more...

By Michelle Dee
Kentucky has been hiding a secret. No poultry-pickers, it's not the Colonel's secret recipe. No, it is the diverse collection of Grammy award winners on the Jambodians CD. I have just been given a copy of this CD to listen to. A thought went through my mind as the first track started; Read more...

Europe, Sweden, Music Reviews - A nightmare at the
Rönne River bar Sweden - Confusion From L:A
By P.O. Rydeström
We had been given a gig at a pub in a small town called Ängelholm in the south of Sweden. This was after the owner of the pub had heard about our three piece band, comprising of two guitarists and I on saxophone and this bar was called the "Rönne River bar". It was in the middle of the summer and we weren't exactly looking forward to playing in a smoke filled pub on such a hot night. Read more...

Europe, Uk, Music - Sending Out Demos - Some Simple
Advice By Glenn Williams (Lazyswede Productions)
There are thousands of demos posted daily to record companies and radio stations and managers etc. The chances of them all being heard is so small that sometimes it hardly seems worth bothering. In many cases, the problem is simply to do with the packaging of the product. I must admit, I was also once guilty of sending out a CDR or a cassette with just my telephone number.. Read more...

Europe, Uk, Music - SIT UP and Listen to Riley by Cilla
Dave Robertson, Riley song writer has a way with words. You can just hear a ghost of a twang of his Liverpudlian accent come through. Just enough to melt one or two hearts, I suspect. And the tunes? Well, I can't stop listening. They stick in your brain. Sit Up, the single from their new EP is, to me, their most memorable song. The lyrics are simple; like the Sunday morning when you woke up ..
