Toronto’s Jim Armstrong always has stood for the downtrodden. Now add social justice crusader to this troubador-songwriter’s arsenal of message music. His new single “Joe Fresh” takes dead aim at a Canadian retail giant and garment brand found among 340 bodies in the Bangladesh factory collapse this Spring. Joe Fresh is one of five tracks on […]

#13 Brett Ryan Stewart

2011-10-0600:36:42

When an artist you’d never heard tells you he considers his latest record to be “more of an offering than a group therapy ssession” you veritably race to binge on his old stuff. Admit it. Feeling another’s pain from the safety of your iPod is delicious. Resist, until you’ve first devoured Tilt from Nashville singer-songwriter, Brett Ryan Stewart. You’ll […]

Voices United For Veterans Radio is HERE! We launch our mission to help end Veteran homelessness this 4th of July with the debut of the Mats 4 Pats band! A small but growing collective of deeply caring Indie artists who’ve joined forces with us. Great interviews too, and touching personal stories.  We are a veteran-run […]
#12 Gangstagrass

#12 Gangstagrass

2011-03-3100:23:05

Lightning on the strings, thunder on the mic It’s called Gangstagrass. Bluegrass & Hip/Hop’s answer to the Reese’s peanut butter cup. A sweet mix that led to an Emmy nomination for best theme song, “Long Hard Times to Come” heard Wednesday nights on the FX hit TV series Justified. The genius behind this hip/hop mashup is a Brooklyn-based producer, […]
Show #11 Jim Armstrong

Show #11 Jim Armstrong

2011-02-0500:42:34

Courageous doesn’t begin to tell this story Jim Armstrong didn’t just overcome adversity, it is his constant companion. Epilepsy (since age eight), brain surgery and a horrific run-in with a fork lift would stop most of us cold. All they do for Jim is spur his enormous talent and immense heart to churn out eerily touching tunes. His new opus, […]
Show #10 Melina Gerges

Show #10 Melina Gerges

2010-12-0900:38:50

If you love pop, but hate the indiscernible lyrics and three chord banality of today’s pop, you will flat out adore Melina Gerges. She’s a rare combination of high musical intellect (as you’d expect of a classically trained Italian opera diva), great range and perfect pitch, with the ability to write modern songs that pour from her soul into yours.  Born […]
Show #9 Richard Kincaid

Show #9 Richard Kincaid

2010-11-2500:44:50

His music is a unique blend of vocal purity, soaring emotions, the strength of opera and musical theatre, with the flavor of 70”s R&B/Soul. Equally unique is the path that led Richard Kincaid to Return to his passion. Classically trained from grade school through college, the dynamic range of Richard’s voice could be held back only so long. Longtime businessman and […]
Show #8 Ironwood Rain

Show #8 Ironwood Rain

2010-10-0300:31:02

Now that the smoke has cleared from the release of “Burn The Ships”, their first CD to fly all-original colors, Ironwood Rain stands firmly on the shores of acoustic nirvana. No longer content to front a mostly-cover band, vocalist/bass player, Scotte Burns and childhood friend, songwriter and guitarist, Mike Kloepfer set sail by adding two key mates (and deep-sixing the […]
Show #7 gilli moon

Show #7 gilli moon

2010-07-3000:45:00

gilli named her just-released sixth album The Stillness to reflect where her soul lives these days. In that quiet place under the radar. A stark contrast to her meteoric rise from the Australian wildnerness to Los Angeles and indie music icon status. With the same futility reviewers must feel when they try, with words, to […]
Show #6 All Mod Cons

Show #6 All Mod Cons

2010-07-2000:39:57

Many believe The JAM, as All Mod Cons co-founder, singer and bassist, Glenn Matto puts it, “single-handidly invented Indie music.” But that, Matto says, “would only be half right.”  Since 1989, Boston-based All Mod Cons (named after The JAM’s breakout album) has been paying tribute to and recreating the excitement, passion and raw energy of the British punk-pop legends. One of three original tribute groups to hit […]
Show #5 Crazy Mary

Show #5 Crazy Mary

2010-06-2300:33:35

Commercialization be damned… Their art firmly rooted in the 60s, Crazy Mary has been around the NYC music scene for a dozen years. You will find their genre somewhere in the rock/ progressive rock/ Alternative/ Underground spectrum. What you won’t find is a band that produces sounds to get “discovered” by a major label. They […]
Show #4 Maree McRae

Show #4 Maree McRae

2010-06-2200:31:55

Urgency… It is the title of her new album and for Maree McRae the music contained therein is deeply personal. Begun as an Americana / Country studio project, something delightfully odd happened on its way to radio stations across the land. One of the tracks, “Breeze” became the #1 most added single in the country […]
Show #3 Mark Radcliffe

Show #3 Mark Radcliffe

2010-06-2200:33:57

If The Eagles and Jack Johnson had a baby… His music and lyrics would sound a lot like Mark Radcliffe. He grew up in Maine and Vermont, taught high school English for years (yes, waited tables & tended bar) and wrote ad copy. Along the way he’s played and sung his tunes from NYC to Atlanta […]
Show #2 Lily Sparks

Show #2 Lily Sparks

2010-06-2200:35:10

Club Indie luvs to rock… Who are Lily Sparks? Verb tense issues aside, this is one mother lovin’, hard rockin’ girl band. Oops, sorry Nick, nobody questions your masculinity (at least not while you’re wielding those drum sticks)! They’re taking NYC by storm, and taking no classic rock ‘n roll prisoners. Spend some time this St. Paddy’s […]
