WELCOME TO THE FABULOUS SAVAGE HENRY!!

Halshack (Shackstars series) SAVAGE HENRY- Mar 2019 (bonus show- music only)

Hi again everyone..surprise!! Im back with another show for March. I know the end of VERBAL ACTIONS has you sweltering and drooling for more Savage Henry then you've come to the right place.

Life may have forced your hand to look elsewhere for love and respect in your life. Life may be great for you and you may have found never-ending happiness. Whatever the case I hope life is kind to you and opens doors for your future should you feel that same passion as I to change your life and give it meaning, purpose and value. My journey started 20 years ago with a "little" but mighty band from Denver, Co. (ON SECOND THOUGHT) lead singer my buddy and friend Damon. I found love through the music of this wonderful beloved band from high in the rockies.

They forever changed my life. A few years later the original act disbanded and the singer and current drummer at the time co-founded a newer tighter well produced and carefully skilled version of this band and together they formed the clandestine SAVAGE HENRY.

Taken after the poetic and yet disturbed writings and teachings of Hunter S. Thompson (FEAR and LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS) Damon cautiously and painstakingly writes the most catchy hooky songs and Stu Miller blends his magical axe laden skills into a fun delve into deep provocative thought yet adds a layer of fun to their arrangements that just cant be found anywhere in today's music.

This band was the ultimate kick-starter for me and my career. This act has allowed me to build a solid reputation to build my name and earn much respect along the way. Savage Henry and On second Thought will be forever immortalized here at the Halshack. One day when I become a record label then maybe the whole world can enjoy this band as I have for the past 20 years.....

I put together a best of playlist from both of their cd releases "ALL IN" and "STEP LIVELY" (you will notice a subtle shift from ska to more rock with the 2nd album, still great!!)but did not include Alive and Kickin' from All In since it was just played at the end of Verbal Actions (Mar 2019).

So as I look back at my life and reflect on my roots and looking at starting over again with new beginnings. If you folks want to know what makes the Halshack tick and what drove my passion for life, love and music. Then look no further cause this is absolutely the funnest good time rock/ska/pop influenced freakin' band you will ever hear!! Guaranteed or my name is not HALSHACK!!

SIDE NOTE....song "MONKEY" from a ALL IN features MEGADEATH owned 7-string guitar (STU MILLER-guitarist) purchased this guitar from the axe man for MEGADEATH and featured only in the song MONKEY. COOL ASS SONG!! and what a great funky riff written by Stu. WELL DONE GUYS!! HATS OFF TO SAVAGE HENRY!!

Halshack- NO DIRECTION- Ep 14.5 (Apr 2019-bonus)
Well everybody..Nashville was an eye opening and jaw dropping experience. Made some great connects and had some mishaps along the way that have sent my future plans into unknown territory. I've started a movement and made some real headway on the formation of Halshack Records. Only problem is I have no clear concise picture as to where to go next. As my life and label have no real direction right now...lol I'm kind of now in "no man's land" in between the nexus of something good and something stellar or legendary even. The sheer potential of TOP 10 hit bands and artists under my wing is enough to give anyone a swift kick in the head that what I'm about to undertake is monumental and overwhelming at the same time. Looking for investors and partners to make Halshack Records a reality for so many struggling and starving fantastic worthy of stardom indie artists.So have fun as I take you on my journey to "Nowhereville" along the way you will find us feeling up for the cause of it then already gone and moving forward with our plans to conquer the music world! From being on the up to going for high places and screaming out echoes about all our bands. It came down to this current state folks as Ive had a breakdown in Nashville of friendships but I will never give up on my artists or you the fan and find the easy way out. The music fills my spirit up and every face that I meet that doesn't feel the love for good indie music is a faraway place from you the listener. We're on an elevator moving up with the movement that began with one to aspire to new heights, so finally the world would be in our reach where other podcasts are just not there with us on that level. Nashville tried my patience and tried to curb my enthusiasm as well but it only made me grow in lots of ways, made new contacts, gained a new audience and opened my show up to regional support from the entire southeast. In the words of Dangermaker at the end of the show... "....everyday every night, I know what I want, its black and white, I'm still here!!!"Find us on Spotify, Itunes, Podomatic, Castbox, PlayerFM plus others. www.halshack.com
Halshack- (Walla/Hoonch--Apr 2019) SHACKSTARS- "Gangsters of Suburbia"
"Oh no he didnt"..lol. You know I did!! Introducing the original Gangsters of Suburbia, the one and only, California based pop-synth group Walla/Hoonch. (Music-only) one-hour special of the best tracks from this awesome eclectic synth pop act. its part of my "SHACKSTARS" series. Be sure to check out other "Shackstars" episodes. These guys have been with me since the shack opened up its little doors and windows and let all these tunes out to the world. They are absolutely the best damn alt/pop band anywhere working today!!! Ive heard BORNS, Walk the Moon, Passion Pit, Young the Giant, Foster the People and any other well known alt band out there today in a similar fashion.These BIG LABEL bands and others in a similar vein can't EVEN begin to touch the writing prowess of Jonathan Hoonch Kim and the creative blending of the synth laden keys of Gabriel Nava Rodriguez. This band has been quietly in development for years and are now ready to storm your earwax and give your brain an orgasm..lol HIT HIT HIT band, nothing but potential hits one after the other from this very polished, very skilled group of musicians from Cali.Walla officially started in 2012 with the release of their first EP which included "Animal of Love" and "Rising Tide". From that success they would push on to release 2 more successful ep's as their sound grew and matured into "Nature" ep and then went for more indie type direction with "Gangsters of Suburbia" hitting the digital landscape by 2015.After that, Walla began to work on cultivating that sound into something more.....Here come problems within the band and creative differences began to manifest within the core 5 members. Soon, that would lead to the demise of Walla after much publicity on the web and thru digital services like Spotify and Soundcloud. Walla had built a name for themselves and was looking at possible record deal from Mountain Dew owned "Greenlight Records". The boys had built one heck of a reputation in SoCal and were headed skyward before creative differences got the best of the group and it all came to a screeching halt.Circa 2017, from the ashes of the former act rises a new kind of "Walla". Their name is HOONCH, taken after the middle name of the lead and consisting of the main 2 creative forces that made Walla so great (Kim and Rodriguez) This band means absolute freakin' hardcore business!! If you thought Walla was good, Hoonch takes Walla and exponentially improves on their formula to bring you the absolute best most catchy, hooky, fun alt pop gold this side of ..hmmmm..well the planet actually. No joke! Ive scoured the globe. Ive listened to to all the bands like this that are known and popular from years past to present day and you cannot and will not throw a name at me of band from this style and say its better. I have always and will continue to always call this band the "Cali Pop Kings" cause until the labels or YOU the listener or fans can prove me wrong otherwise. There's not a group out there right now with more character of hit potential than what these guys have to offer. Mainstream pop GOLD and millions of fans across the world is just the tip of this acts potential. See for yourself. I don't have to sell them. The music sells itself but I just love them a whole lot. These are "my boys" and you will be impressed at the sheer amount of radio hits this band has under their belt and tucked away hidden in their library. These fellas too good to be unknown and swimming around in the sea of obscurity.THEY INSTANTLY BECAME MY DAUGHTERS FAVE BAND FROM THE MOMENT SHE HEARD THEM. College crowd just eats this act alive!!WWW.HALSHACK.COMFind all these Halshack including the shacklist for the episode at my website as well as find more great shows and tunes at SPOTIFY, ITUNES, CASTBOX, PODOMATIC and PLAYERFM.Thanks for being a part of the indie community and helping to make HALSHACK RECORDS a future reality.
Halshack Ep. 14.5 (Nashville Dreams)-Mar/Apr 2019- bonus show...music only
A new phase in life is here and a BIG move is in store sometime in the near future as I take my show and bands to music row in Nashville to open up the shack to the world of business. HALSHACK RECORDS baby!! I'm looking at possibly setting up shop in Tennessee so this is a clandestine venture for yours truly. Scary thoughts, new city, so far away from friends and family but big dreams ahead as me and the gang (Halshack gang that is) reign down a music storm on Nashville of the best mix of rock, pop, alt and americana you will find anywhere on the planet of present day artists.As you can imagine I have been very restless of late. Cant sleep, cant eat well, vivid dreams when I do sleep and wide eyed daydreamin' of beautiful girls and the bright lights of Nashville. Hoping to find that cool place I can call Fletcher Bay (reference to ep 13 song from UK artist Harry Pane). So as I reconcile memories of home and past loves to thoughts about a future in the professional music industry with a chance to change the world through music, I press on with guile and determination to succeed. We all have delusions of grandeur but when we have so many quality songs and artists its hard not to see the grand scheme behind all these big dreams, thoughts, memories, and my electric beautiful life that lies ahead of me on this road of stereo dreams. HIP HIP HOORAY folks!! We almost made it!! Keep dreamin' BIG bands and fans and hopefully the wheels will be rolling soon and we will be inking some deals in music city!!Thanks for all that you have done to get us this far. We could not have done it without you and your undying love for our family of artists and the indie community!!www.halshack.com Keep up with all things at my website. Tracklist can be found at the shacklists page. Check us on Podomatic, Spotify, Itunes, Castbox, and PlayerFM as well as my website!!Keep rockin' and sharin' the Halshack. Thanks peeps. You're the best shackheads a guy could ever have!!...lol

Happy New Year 2018!! Time to get crankin' with a new episode and all new 11 bands and artists to get your new year started off with a bang!!There's even some Hollywood star talent in this show. A popular actor turned musician will be featured amongst many other rising talent hopefuls. There's even an all-new me to present with a new mic setup, I'm sounding more professional and ready to take on the radio airwaves in any city anywhere USA/Canada/UK/Australia and wherever else people like good music and a happy endearing infectious host...me!!

Why is there an 11.5 and why is there 2 versions? Oooohhh..Im' soooo glad you asked..lolWell since this show also runs on 2 radio stations Bombshell Radio and Discover Unsigned, I have 2 hour time slots to fill so I make an extra 45 min showcase on past talent and officially with this release they will be full cd's. (Well as much as I can fit anyway..lol) There will be no me just music and you can find a track list posted on the podcast and at my website. Now I made 2 versions cause frankly I couldn't decide who to use and who to keep back for episode 12 Shackstars and I thought I would let the radio stations play both if they wanted or they could choose. Plus these camps are just so nice about sharing and spreading the love all around for the Halshack that I shall always try to return the favor for these so helpful ladies and gents. Thanks again folks!! See you soon for Episode 12!!
