Im new to Podomatic so its time to ROCK!!

BIG THANK YOU to all my fans, bands, and supporters. All these cool accolades would not be possible without YOU!!

Halshack is a radio show, public relations manager, indie A&R rep, talent scout and band promo label....oh and almost forgot we write articles and reviews too (whew!!...im busy when you write it all down..lol)

Reason this show is so cool!!! Im about to tell you. I have many segments that drive the listening experience!
Each segment is a 2 song block with no interruptions! (beginning with episode 8)

x2 means there are 2 segments

Alt Vault x2 (new for ep.8)
Pop Stop x2
Rock Block x2
Funk Trunk (ska, reggae, funk)
Blues Grooves (americana)
Breakout Artist of the Month
Shacktrack of the Month
Carolina Homegrown band of the Month

(I live in NC and always on the hunt for great local talent from both N and S Carolina)

and my proud creation!!

Mystery Spotlight x2
(mystery band, no one knows who, not even the band......big surprise!!!)

My main focal countries are obviously the USA but I get cozy with our Canadian neighbors as well as our friends across the " pond" in jolly ole England. I have even found an amazing artist in Africa and a phenomenal alt rock band on the little tiny island in the middle of Mediterranean Sea called Malta. Shows you that nowhere is safe from the "clutches" of the Halshack...lol


Thank you to all my fans, bands, and supporters. My success is only because of you, this is a team effort and I am proud to have all of you batting for the Halshack!!

Halshack is an independent A&R rep with 15+ years in the music business scouring the indie scene for the best and the brightest unsigned indie talent in the world!!

Halshack is an indie promo label with 35 bands and artists under his name and most of these groups and solo artists are in viable mainstream contention for potential success and possible stardom for these vying hopefuls. I pride myself on finding top quality rising acts that have made a name for themselves in their respective genres. What you will hear on my show rivals no other indie rock show on the planet. My groups are grade A top-notch artists and musicians that have attained massive followings and semi successful careers with opening for major acts and touring across the country and across the world.

I look for and aspire to finding only artists that mimic what you would hear on major broadcast radio stations mainly in rock, alt and top 40 but I also include a little reggae, ska, funk and americana as well. You will find a lot of diversity on my show and nothing but solid radio ready tunes one after the other. My musicians have mad skills and they are the drive behind my passion, motivation, and determination to see them succeed in this vast ever changing music landscape.

Halshack is also looking for a team of writers/bloggers to help review and write spotlight articles and pieces on bands and artists involved in the show. i have a couple of people to write but need more, lots more..lol

Well halshack is busting at the seems with talent and the potential to cause mass mayhem among the music industry..lol
In order to make this the best indie podcast and to continue to grow the indie music community here at the halshack, then we could use a little monetary assistance to make this really take off!! 100,000 plays is great but lets make it a million, then people are really hearing whats going on here at the Halshack but only way we can do that is by help from the fans, bands, promoters, and supporters. Anything you want to give will be much appreciated and just know that you got the gratification of helping to grow and nurture something that is bigger than all of us...the indie music scene!!

Moving Forward as said by the excellent singer/songwriter Dustin Paul from NY, we are doing just that! keeping on with the Geo location theme we're trekking on northward to include all our great Northern USA bound acts. Como Bros from NY coming in strong with 2 new songs!! These guys just really continue to up their A game!! Well done fellas!! Youve got a hit with MONEY for sure!! geez guys, the whole song and every freakin' lyric and word just screams $$$$$...lol (oh the irony and the relation every listener will feel from this song..its just one of those major clandestine hits in the making and folks guess what?? YOU HEARD IT HERE 1st on the HALSHACK baby!! They got a new one too about going back home and its just damn awesome!! Love me some Como Bros. You should too!!From the windy city of Chicago through the brisk chill of the Ohio valley to the steel mills of Pennsylvania on up to the Big Apple and rounding out in the far north east at Hallowell, Maine. You will find the very best the USA has to offer in the indie unsigned market (that I have heard, that's the thing just like the BIG labels don't know about these acts, there's plenty I havnt heard yet..always on the hunt!!) from all types of rock, alt, pop infused genres!This show arguably contains my best vocalists. Dustin Paul and Luis Feliciano of (Ode to No One) Como Brothers as well, Minshara, Heavy English..dag-on there is some damn fine talent in this show!! I chose NYC and the Statue of Liberty and the Twin Towers as a symbol of a strong Northern character to be resilient and honorable!! We should all NEVER FORGET the tragedy that unfolded that horrific day in New York. I thought since Sept 11 was just a few days ago this would be the upmost time to pay some homage to the victims and their families.Halshack will forever remember that day as will so many others that are in the hearts and minds for all people affected that day. I have found the best picture I could to symbolize those beautiful steel structures in all their glory! NEVER FORGET is tagged on the bottom with that dreadful black stain of a date in our nations history! We have been resilient as a nation but we have lost the true meaning of NEVER FORGET! America came together the most it had come together in decades. What has happened to our countries UNITY? We should NEVER FORGET that as well................Find the Halshack on all major music services or Halshack.com or google me!! I'm everywhere baby!! Shacklist found at my website and as always thank you for supporting and rockin' the HALSHACK!!
!!!!BRAND NEW MUSIC ALERT!!!! Most of the music in this show is NEW!!Sticking with the location theme were gonna trek across the grand ole' USA to our west coast neighbors and serve up some Cali to Washington gold and of course we cant forget those great environmental leaders of Oregon stuck in middle. I recently made a cool Lego video with my son Tyler, featuring (TOP by HOONCH), in order to support the show with new avenues to promote the HALSHACK. The west coast of the USA is a busy place with many fantastic sights and sounds to enjoy while you soak up those California rays. There are many avenues of styles of music to traverse off the Gold Coast. You cant go too far without running into a famous star or band in SoCal and one day these great Halshack acts will be sharing that musical high life as well with the golden state song warriors. The Pacific northwest has become a hub of techno jargon and silicon landscaping but Seattle rock still exists and going strong in Wash and Oregon among all the Yahoos and Micronauts running around!...lolWho said anything about traveling all those roads and highways of the west coast to hear a bunch of great outstanding bands and artists. Look no further but the Halsahck. Ive done all the leg work for you! Ive just about not heard any better indie/unsigned acts hailing from the tri-state area! Were you guys hit with the "musicanator"? (any one who watches Phineas and Pherb cartoon will get that joke..lol)Long live Perry the Platypus...lol and long live the Halshack so these bands will have their chance at a bright sunny future living and loving life under the sunny rays of the west coast USA!!Shacklists can be found at my websiteHalshack.comShows can be found across most major music services.Be sure to vote in the BATTLESHACK 2 contest on my website. Alot of these acts are in the contest to be voted for a top 10 show. Ep 17 will be the Battleshack 2 results show. Get your votes in now. Vote for your fave 3. Voting closes soon!! NO kidding!! Go vote now before its too late!! Thanks so much everyone for your undying support!!HALSHACK has 40k subscribers and heard and played in over 70 major US cities and 70 countries around the world!
Narrow Plains, rising popular band from the UK won a prestigious contest to come to the USA 4 years ago and work with famed producer John Davenport (John Mellancamp, John Lennon are just a few of his credits). While they were here I got the pleasure of having a beer and some laughs with Charlie, Roger and Stuart. Great guys and outstanding gentlemen. Glad to have them as part of my camp of quality artists from around the world!Check these fellas out 70k fanbase on Twitter and growing!They have their own Shackstars episode 11.5 and their very own professional review from my staff at CREWS VIEWS at Halshack.com
Battleshack 2 results show Ep. 17 is just around the corner so I thought since PODOMATIC expanded my space I would give you folks a chance to hear this cool episode and download it. This was the results show for the Battleshack 1 released on Oct 15, 2017! Check out the show and listen as we countdown the most popular acts from our first group of about 35 to 40 acts from our first 3 years in operation! You could go find the (Shacklist) at my website to see who won but where's the fun in that?I will admit my audio is rough, hence the re-boot with new audio equipment and new bands for Ep 11 Jan 2018!!Go check out the early roots of the show. It had its charm but greener pastures were ahead for the HALSHACK!!
This was another show I had to take down from the servers. Now my capacity has doubled I can re-upload this to my feed. This show got little publicity and has had the least amount of plays due to its release date. I put this out at Christmas 2018 so people could have fun around the campfire or a New Years party. Its a great chill show with lots of indie flavors and styles to burn the night away under the starry skies while lighting up the night with fun tunes. Shacklist can be found at my website on the SHACKLISTS page. Enjoy this gem of a show on my podcast feed anywhere you can find the Halshack!! New episodes coming and new exclusives for Spotify in the works baby!
This is a re-release from Mar 2018. I had to drop it from Podomatic to make room but these awesome guys at PODOMATIC just doubled my storage space!! Thanks fellas! Sooooo....they are back.NARROW PLAINS, what an outstanding acoustic trio from London, UK. They won a contest to come to America to North Carolina and worked with famed producer John Davenport and even had an interview with me and I got to see them play out a show at the Blind Tiger in Greensboro, NC.These chaps have had their music featured on BBC radio all over the UK and are steadily growing their base at about 70k strong! I'm proud to know these good gents and look forward to more quality tunes from these wooden wind pipes of England.Find everything HALSHACK at my website , find all other 25+ shows at PODOMATIC or my Rockcasts page.Find 4 exclusives at SPOTIFY!!
This is a re-release from Feb 2018. I had to drop it from Podomatic to make room but these awesome guys at PODOMATIC just doubled my storage space!! Thanks fellas! Sooooo....they are back. The eclectic boys from Malta. Airport Impressions has to be one of the most diverse, most original bands Ive ever heard. Errol Sammet, lead singer, can reach wondrous heights and breathtaking lows as he and his band of cronies take you on a journey of sights and sounds while they whisk you way to the busy streets of Berlin or the sunny skies of Ballymena. They are one awesome band and I for one stand behind them all the way...I was included in the EPK to help this band get noticed by SONY!!! Very cool. Glad I could help.SONY has recently partnered with these fellas on (Orchard) distribution deal with their new song "Faith" which we will hear SOOOOONNNN..lol on a new episode of the HALSHACK coming in August...(thinking its gonna be in a SPOTIFY exclusive)Find all 25+ (posted) episodes of the HALSHACK here at Podomatic or on the interwebs..lol...GO find and listen, discover the magic!! 4 SPOTIFY (exclusives) shows you can only get there.

Bonus show to tag along with Carolina Footstompin putting the focus on the region of the southeast and including my acts in Tennessee and Georgia. Please enjoy a taste of these artists who don't sound very southern ..lol (some do) but are southern bred and have hit songs to boot.
Home is the where the heart is what they always say! Well, I'm puttin' the focus on NC and SC best talent. I been stompin' my feet all around the Carolinas all my life and especially the last few years looking far and wide for those Ace level acts who can represent the south with pride and dignity and show the world we got what it takes here in the Tarheel and Palmetto states to be a major player in the music industry. Ive got a newspaper article coming out soon in support of this episode. Antoinette Kerr, freelance writer for the Lexington Dispatch is working on a nice piece for the Halshack. Thank you so much to the good folks at the newspaper. Were featuring some awesome talent from all over our stateS with an alt vault to start then a pop stop and then a rock block and so forth. All great music. No 4-corded pop music here, real musicians and singer song writers from all across our 2 states representing the finest of their genre. Folk/Americana, pop, rock, alt, and indie is all on display here for people minds hearts and ears to enjoy. Hoping a fair amount of these bands and artists will be able to attend our (CAROLINA SHACKFEST) in High Point, NC at AFTER HOURS on N Main. St. in mid-November (if we have one..whole event is still TBA) We will keep you posted on the website and the shows. I will know more by Ep 17 BATTLESHACK 2 release in the fall. Stay tuned.....Find this show on every major music service including Spotify, Iheart, Itunes and Stitcher! If you like what you hear, please share.
Ok Im in a giving mood!! Surprise!! Its a mystery show for our mystery spotlights. Its a mystery because I didnt plan this it just fell in my lap as I am planning the Carolina shows (TBA) Ive learned there's too much fate wrapped around my show and a huge story I will share with all my fans and friends sometime. Im learning Im not in control of my show. It gives me cues when and where to do stuff..lol..I just listen and say yes sir were gonna do that...LOLOLOL..(seriously)So while I'm simmering the Carolina heat and our southeast neighbors for 16 and 16.5 get a taste of a couple Carolina acts Spank and Triton who made the spotlights so special early on in the show and get acquainted with some eccentric eclectic groups from all walks of life. Its a mystery show for our mystery elite acts from ep 1-15!Find the shacklist at my website, Find the show on every major music service including Spotify, Iheart, and Itunes as well as Stitcher and plenty more...thanks for letting me take me up space on your phones.
