This week, Mark and I had so much fun with the guys from BROKEN ROMEO and like the first time they were on, we did a lot of laughing, and of course dropped a few “F” bombs along the way!
Calling in from their home in Tuscon Arizona, brothers James and Steven Turpin were joined by their bass player Ari Sloane. It was great to meet Ari who was unable to join us the last time!
Currently in the progress of producing new songs, we featured 3 new songs of their up coming new EP and they all “Rock! One song “Astronaut “ was only released a couple of days before Twitter Tuesday Live! This song is different from the usual sound of Broken Romeo, but just as awesome! It got a lot of good feedback from our live listening audience!
The reason I love these guys is because they have a passion for what they do! This band is so commercial ready that they could be picked up by any good record company at any time! I guess they just have to be in the right place at the right time, because they are up there with the rest of the rock bands out there!
So each week I have been asking our guests to send a selfie of themselves during the show….however this week, we were having so much fun on and off the air that I forgot! So I stole a selfie of the guys after they had listened to their song “The Astronaut” and it was a wrap! Thank god selfies are the norm for 2014 and that everyone is doing them! Thanks guys!!!!

Season IV has begun!
“Established in 2011, the Artists In Music Awards was originally created to honour and recognize the most talented and gifted artists.
Over the years, this tradition has evolved beyond the recognition of a singular art form with a desire to encompass all areas of Arts & Entertainment.
On April 28, 2014, Artists In Music Awards joined forces with the Siqueiros Foundation of the Arts. SFOTA is an organization with two goals in mind – the dedication to empowering creative youth by providing scholarship opportunities to underprivileged children and providing an avenue to explore and express the arts through unity and community involvement. SOFTA is also dedicated to creating jobs for out of work artists using Federal aid through the resurrection of the Federal Art Project (FAP), a program with a focus on putting Artists back to work, but disappeared after the end of the Depression Era in 1943.”
This new partnership with the Artists In Music Awards and the Siqueiros Foundation of the Arts is not only a new chapter for both organizations, but an exciting opportunity for all artists to be apart of.”
Be a part of the 2015 ARTIST IN MUSIC AWARDS. For more information on the various categories and how to submit please check out this link: http://www.aimusicawards.com/

Just A Little Different
by Skinny Bitches
“Robyn Craig and Ricardo Temporao are Toronto musicians and friends who decided to start jamming in early 2011 with him on guitar and her on drums. By experimenting with harmonies and heavy arrangements (reflecting influences from Belle and Sebastian to Death From Above) they tried singing with and against each other. From sweet sounding layers to biting reminders that duet is a four letter word, they figured they might be on to something a little different. Skinny Bitches was born. The focus became material that could reflect their love of rock’n’roll while writing melodies that allowed each voice to compliment the other. This concept is at the heart of their early video “Let’s Get Lost” (whose setting seems like that of a Brazilian carnival). After recording some demos they went on to play a few shows in Toronto and Montreal. Most recently, they released their self-produced EP “Debut” and accompanying video “Gunsmoke” which demonstrates how this may be pound for pound one of the loudest rock bands going… but then again they’re just a couple of Skinny Bitches.”

FEEL GOOD STORY
BILLY KAY country singer from Nashville, was at Ernie’s Smokehouse in Clifton this week, when a deaf woman got up really close to him and copied his body movements. Even though she couldn’t hear the music, it made her feel so happy. It also made Billy happy to know that he can have this affect on people! How awesome is that! Good onya Billy!
