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!!

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. Please download and take me with you or stream as well. Your choice!!
July is a great time to travel to the mountains or the beach. This is an awesome playlist to take for the car ride or chillin' and relaxin' under the sun! I have been listening to a fair amount of well-known indie playlists that were "good" or just OK, but not "GREAT" I look for STANDOUTS and I was left feeling less than inspired by these BIG lists with hundreds of thousands of subscribers or millions of plays on You Tube and Spotify. They just dont have access to or the knowledge of the music I have. Exclusive bands and little no names artists that could rock the music world whether it be pickin' a banjo or throwin' down in a club or jamming on an axe laden guitar. Halshack can spin up any genre at the top of the game! You're sure to get your fix of excellent Americana folk/indie acts here from all over the world! The best indie/unsigned talent there is, its even better than BIG radio music!Be sure to "Say Hello" to "Mariette" as we sit around the campfire and enjoy the "Burn Pile" one last time and catch this little indie show while you bask up the summer sun. There will be some hot heat coming from the Carolinas as we heat things up later this summer with our very own "on fire" quality artists from right here at home. Ep 16 "Carolina Footstompin" and Ep 16.5 "Southern Roots" bonus show to include regional artists. New reviews coming for some of these acts, new music, new festival starting this fall, maybe NOV or DEC (CAROLINA SHACKFEST)...hopefully (still TBA on this event) Battleshack 2 (ep 17) coming this fall (Be sure to vote for your fave 3 at Halshack.com)Voting open until Labor Day 2019 (Sept 2nd)Find us on every major music service under the sun! IHEART, SPOTIFY, ITUNES, PODOMATIC, PLAYER FM, GOOGLE PLAY, CASTBOX, STITCHER, etc.... Were growing folks!Over 40k subscribers, played in over 70 major US markets and over 70 countries worldwide!!THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL THE LOVE!! COULDN'T GOT HERE WITHOUT YOU!! KEEP SPREADING THE WORD!!
So I put this out a couple months ago On Drooble as an exclusive. Its time to let this bad boy out the box!! It's an out of the box rock band like none other (The UK's) from the heartland of the USA. Let me tell you something these guys have started "A Movement" for me in Kansas! Its my next best area to Greensboro and the UK!! I get alot of plays, downloads, streams, and if I'm not mistaken I believe I'm being broadcasted somewhere in Kansas around Wichita. I get MUCH LOVE DAILY from Wichita, Kansas!Thank you so much for all your support and continued love for the Halshack to all the good people of the Heartland of the USA!!Here's your very own Kansas/Missouri based band special featuring 10 tracks of the best psychedelic rock these corn huskers could muster.3 tracks from their first ep which is good but you gotta get PAST that into what makes this band so fantastic!!!!! Their almost full cd "Bad Seed" (i chose 7 tracks from it to showcase) ITs just superb!! Its a growth show!! You think im gonna give you the best up front. Forget that!!Find the Shacklist at my website!!Halshack.comHalshack keeps growing!! Look for us on most major music platforms. Heard, streamed, downloaded or broadcasted in 70 USA major metropolitan markets and 70 countries worldwide!!Were thinking of having a festival for NC bands and spin up a bunch of party music from the Halshack "end of the summer bash" on Fri. Sept 27th (tentative) at AFTER HOURS in High Point, NC. (CAROLINA SHACKFEST) All local peeps from Greensboro/High Point/Winston Salem area need to get out to this show if we have it. I'm trying to gear up interest as best I can but people need to interact with me. Ive sent out invites on Facebook with my local friends and doing several posts to draw interest. Got a newspaper article coming soon from the Lexington Dispatch! Wow! Thank you so much to the local paper, that will help boost the festival I hope!New (Ep 16)"Carolina Footstompin" and (16.5) coming out for the summer to support the festival and just because I also have been wanting to do a special on our home based artists here across both the Carolinas and our regional southern states. Will be adding Tenn and Georgia to the line up in the bonus (Southern Roots)Heres a 2 minute sample commercial or you can find it on Podomatic or about any service (music for this show will be somewhat diff than whats on the commercial plus more acts in the podcast to feature, I just got new tunes from some of these acts...its gonna be a blast!!)https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/halshack/episodes/2019-06-29T12_46_58-07_00

Over 30k subscribers added, multiple music platforms to be heard on (over 20 and growing). Over 70 major USA cities and 70 countries from around the world are all figuring out that the Halshack is where its at and my quality of bands is above all others. I bring my own acts to seize the day and show people real bands still exist today. Its taken me 5 years to put together this list of fine rock bands from all corners of the globe. I have more, I cant possibly cover all the songs and bands in one hour so there will be more Rock Ages following down the road but for now enjoy my playlist of the BEST rock songs and rock bands playing today. They say rock is dying and that is correct. In the big market all were left with is old has-beens and limited selection of styles of rock. Im here to show rock music fans that its not dead its alive and well and ready to rock the ages!!Lets do this. Have fun. You know I had to upstart and upstage any playlister on the planet. You will NOT outfox, out create, or surpass my musical talents and abilities of my golden ear. If its better, I havn't heard it yet!! Thats my reputation and I'm stickin' to it.HALSHACK RECORDS will become a reality with the help of all my listeners and supporters to keep spreading the news and we will land a BIG FISH to invest or partner up. Its only a matter of time.

Its June, Summer is upon us and starry skies are abundant in the sultry nighttime sky here in the Carolinas. Its a beautiful sight to see as I set my starry eyed gaze on conquering the music universe. This show is one of those more artsy musically skilled type shows full of eclectic bands sure to please your whimsical palette. Americana/folk, some alternative to start, lots of great "pop" hits as well and plenty of cool rock songs to send your mind wandering off into the stratosphere! 3 Excellent Canadian bands taking flight as well as our favorite Italian band on the planet from Malta will be joining this expedition to the stars. New producer JAEM is shooting his lucky stars and there's even a Pink Floyd esque band in the mix as well. Just the perfect show for taking a trip through space and learning all about how your life can change in a blink of an eye when that rare comet comes around and streaks a blaze of light into your life! I think I may have seen that "Good Comet" in my life recently! I hope she comes back around!! Thanks Tyler Stenson for the great song! Well played and just what a nice touch with those superior golden pipes!Show keeps growing and gaining serious popularity. Keep sharing and telling people about the Halshack.

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there. We're celebrating women around the Halshack. There seems to be a stigma and true statistics that back up the claim that there are far fewer women at the forefront of the music industry. You find alot more men and male bands with that the extra talent needed to push forward. Well you girls and ladies and Moms are just as awesome and you seem to always have to work harder to gain the attention of your peers and THAT'S UNFAIR!! Women are just as fantastic and can be super talented just as much as the guys!! (if not better) There's just far fewer to choose from with ace level talent, songwriting skills, captivation ability, "x" factor appeal. Even diggin' in the trenches of the internet audio sphere, I have not come across many that, are not signed or famous already, who have the whole enchilada..lolWelcome to the future of the music industry folks. I'm sure there are ALOT (probably hundreds or thousands at least or more from all over the world) more than these 8. But that's what I've "discovered" so far. I don't know they are out there until I find them and that's a daunting task. I do have a few more ladies waiting in the wings. You super talented gals are a rare breed indeed. I have 77 acts now with only these 8 having prominent female leads so HATS OFF to you ladies gettin' in here and stickin' it to the MAN...lol So MOM's everywhere, rejoice that you are amazing at anything you do and don't ever let a man belittle you or treat you badly. Please "don't love a Monster like Lauren Dair". Cant help who you love but you can get help out of that relationship. Any man who treats a woman this way has no concept of love or the value of life and can never make you happy! Please, tell a family member, the police, a friend. Call the battered woman's abuse centers, they will get you help before its too late and you cant call anyone! We love our MOMs and all the women everywhere. Please respect them and they will respect you back. After all it takes 2 to love and make a happy life and love for Mom and the children (whether kids or adults). Allright, Moms of these artists, I hope i made you proud this mothers day and I hope all women enjoyed this "very special" edition of the Halshack! MUST ADDBeen on this great music site recently called DROOBLE. Great community for amateur and professional musicians. Lots of good people, listen to music, leave reviews, and engage in a thoughtful and rewarding music community. So i found 2 artists on Drooble that made the grade. Both females too, I was so pleased to find them and I had this idea swirlin around in my head for a girlshack so it was perfect timing to put this out and add brand new artists from DROOBLE. (Maisie Mae Wardley) and (Lucia Banfield). Well done young ladies for grabbing my attention.We did a review for Maisie Mae already and posted at my website, written by music blogger/band pr manager/and writer of books and poetry Andrea Baskin. Thanks Andrea for the nifty little piece on Maisie. She sure is talented and so are all these brilliant performers.www.halshack.comreviews atwww.halshack.com/crews-viewsEp 15 (new talk and music show with a theme loosely based around time (SPRINGTIME SUBLIME) and to support the show, companion bonus show (TIMESTICHERS) be out soon. Im hoping around the end of the month.Find us on Itunes, podomatic, PLAYERFM, Castbox, and my website. You can stream the show or download and take it with you..ENJOY!!Spotify (new episodes land on the 15th of every month if I have one)Thanks for rockin' and sharin' the Halshack!!
