Returning to visit us for a second time on this weeks award winning Twitter Tuesday Live, was the awesome MICHAEL CHANCE along with fellow guitarist BRIAN DiBAGIO. Unfortunatly Patrick McGuire another band member was unable to join us today.
I have always admired Michael’s soulful voice and he won me over back in 2012 with his song “Cry Wolf” I was thrilled when he contacted me and ask to come back on the show again, Mark and I love having guests make return vists!
DEAD LETTERS is a new project that he has been working on along with other talented musicians. They have also joined forces with another band called BIG DAMN HEROS who have a celtic feel to their music and they are working together to produce a new album.
Michael and Brian explain it all so much better than I do, in our hour long interview with them. They were awesome to talk to and as usual we had a lot of fun. You can also find out why they are called DEAD LETTERS, interesting story! Check out the interview from this link: http://www.wwirradio.com/home/category/podcast/
During the show we asked Michael and Brian to do a selfie….well here it is! We should make that a regular feature on Twitter Tuesday Live, I mean if Ellen can do it at the Grammy’s, then why can’t we!
WHEN THE WORLD BEGAN is an awesome album by DEAD LETTERS it is a mixture of old and new songs. We featured two songs from this album on tonights show “Down to See Me” and the beautiful and my favourite “Strung Out”. We also featured “Gypsy Girl, and it was the first time it has been played tonight so we felt very honoured!
They also have a SAVE THE BAND campaign, which I for one will be helping out with as I believe this band could go far. Here is the link if you would like to be a part of it too: http://www.gofundme.com/6cjjjg

INDIE MUSIC BUS ARTIST OF THE MONTH – PALAYE ROYALE
PALAYE ROYALE is a fashion-art rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada their musical output is primarily based around the rock genre, with some classical and psychedelic influences.
PALAYE ROYALE are set apart by their artistry & integrity. They are “indie” in every sense of the word; completely “hands-on” from their words & musical arrangements as well as directing & producing their own music videos, to handling their own social media.
The band’s look, feel and authentic style makes them stand out while they remain true to their music.
Much like Panic! at The Disco and Arctic Monkeys, the band gained a substantial fan base online from Europe and the USA before the release of their first EP.
