Mark & Carol
Mark and I would like to thank Californian Rock Singer SERVET for making a return visit to us on Twitter Tuesday Live.
It was great to catch up with him again and to be able to present some of his new songs of his up coming album. As always Servet provided us with great entertainment as well as awesome music!
Every week we ask our guest to submit a selfie of them during the show…..so this was Servet’s! I swear that is not how he looked on the sound check when we were able to video with him, anyway I guess he is just a quick changer! lol
Please check out the hour long interview with had with Servet, it was a great show! http://www.wwirradio.com/home/2014/07/08/episode-152-featuring-servet/

Hailing from Melbourne but comprising English brothers and a Western Australian, rock power-trio Elcaset defied huge distances and sibling rivalry to create their signature melodic-yet-gritty sound that invokes the grunge-led riffs of of Rival Schools, pithy vocal hooks of Biffy Clyro and powerpop cadence of Jimmy Eat World. And although the band only formed in mid 2012, Elcaset’s members are no rookies.
As part of Failsafe, on was snapped up by Deck Cheese Records (UK home of The Living End and Jackson United) while 14,000 kms away, another cut his teeth in bands alongside Adam Spark (Birds of Tokyo) before touring with Gyroscope, Trial Kennedy & Calling All Cars in Perth’s Love You Not. Those early projects instilled a DIY rock’n’roll spirit which carried through to Elcaset’s beginnings and beyond, with a combination of hard work and blatant lies landing them their live debut as headliners at the world famous Esplanade Hotel.
Further headline gigs followed at other well-known Melbourne venues before the band headed to Oaklands Studios to record their debut single, Losing Ground. Following the single’s original release on 8th September 2012, Elcaset landed support slots for the likes of Sydonia and Decortica (NZ) and have since lined up slots with Dallas Frasca and King of the North. http://www.elcasetmusic.com

We were joined by (going left to right on the above photo) Dave O’Brien, Tim Howe, John Mobley and Joe Goltz, who all joined us from their studio in Washington D.C. They already had me sussed out way before the show started and they knew all about me filling up the harddrive during a show! Today was no exeption and as always I had so much I wanted to find out about the band, however now that the show is only an hour long I have to squeeze as many questions in as I can, so I have to talk a lot lol The bossman, Mark is always on my back, moving the show along lol. The whole interview was lots of fun and we really enjoyed chatting with them all, even if Tim was not happy about being sent off on a deserted island! Tim, I promise, you will be rescued one day!!!!

During the hour long show, we featured three songs by the COUSIN JOHN BAND including one called BROKEN HEART TATOO whichalso happens to be the title of their latest CD. There is an official video to this song that shows the lead singer John Mobley being tattoed by tattoo artist Tina Marie, from TANTRIC TATTOO BOUTIQUE in Sandy Spring MD http://www.tantrictattoo.com/ John related the story behind the song and the tattoo, which is dedicated to his sister that passed away two years ago.

Winners of this week’s MUSIC SCENE INVESTIGATIONS – BAND OF THE MONTH is a band from Boulder called ROCKTIN GROVE with their song “Path Of Least Resistance”. I just happened to be on the panel that week and I know that I voted for this song, so I am please that they won this month!
The music we make stems from the great friendships we have. The seven of us were all destined for different paths, but through music we arrived at Rocktin Grove. Building from a love for funk, bluegrass, indie rock, classical, and world styles Rocktin Grove’s sound is a tasteful blend. Smooth fades, euphoric builds, infectious grooves, and soulful harmonies mix to form music that sweeps you away.
Also interested in sustainable agriculture, the seven of us believe music and community action can help improve and empower our world. Calling Boulder, Colorado our home, the mountains, beautiful blue sky, and deep powder keep us loving life and loving music.

This is Carol signing off!
It was our pleasure to welcome back this week, for the second time SOREN BRYCE. Soren who at just 17 is a multi instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, artist, actress, and video host! Hard to believe isn’t it that someone so young can be so talented, well she is! She has an incredible voice and is working hard to produce her debut EP.
Soren defended her title of “Best Folk/Acoustic Artist” at the 2014 Artist in Music Awards and also took the award for “Best Singer Songwriter” as well as performing live at this years event!
The first time we met Soren in January she blew me away with her song “DROUGHT” although not available on the new EP, it can still be purchased via her web page. During the show we also played GONE and THE PERFECT STORM, two songs that will be featured. I like the path that Soren is taking with this new EP and can’t wait to hear the finished product!
Check out her pledgemusic page http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/sorenbryce so far 69% funded with 24 days to go. I have just pledged and am looking forward to my signed CD!
During the show we talked about her up coming new EP and of course her love of Ben Howard, who I sent to rescue her from the deserted island that I put her on 6 months ago! Soren is a real pleasure to interview and I know that our live audience enjoyed her too! Check out the hour-long interview with her from this link: http://www.wwirradio.com/home/2014/06/03/episode-148-with-soren-bryce/
We ask all our guests to take a selfie of them during the live show and of course she obliged! Thank you Soren, look forward to your next visit with us!

TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE 10th JUNE 8PM EST – we welcome back for the second time, the beautiful and very talented LAUREN MARSH http://www.laurenmarsh.com.
Please be sure to join us live on the air and hear some of her newest songs!
Another artist that I have just supported today is BRONI, singer/songwriter from Melbourne Australia. This guy is awesome. We interviewed him for the second time a few months back and he is so much fun. Not only does he write great songs but the artwork on his CD’s are so damn cute! Even though you can go on Broni’s web page and download his songs for free, seriously for the $13 that I paid, in my opinion it is money well spent! I can’t wait for it to arrive and add it to my ever growing awesome collection!
If you would like to find out more about BRONI please check out this link: http://www.bronimusic.com/
