Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, Joe Perry Supergroup Announces Live Dates Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup featuring Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, have announced their first live dates, set for next month. Rounding out the lineup will be former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum, both of whom also play in the supergroup Velvet Revolver. The name "Hollywood Vampires" references a loose collective of rockers, including Cooper, John Lennon, Harry Nilsson and Keith Moon, who got together in the early Seventies and drink on the Sunset Strip at the Rainbow. Cooper's crew – which is issuing its debut album, Hollywood Vampires, on September 11th – plans on keeping true to its moniker's origins. The first Hollywood Vampires concerts will take place at the fabled Sunset Strip outpost the Roxy on September 16th and 17th. It will be the group's only U.S. show. Cooper guitarist Tommy Henriksen will also be playing at the show as will bassist Bruce Witkin, who played with Depp in a band called the Kids. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday via Ticketfly. The group has also planned an appearance in Brazil on September 24th as part of the Rock in Rio festival. Prior to that show, the band will be meeting with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to help fit 150 people in need with hearing aids and bring some of the fans to the show so they can hear music for the first time. As for the Vampires' music, the crew plays a mix of cover songs by members of the original Hollywood vampires, including the Who's "My Generation," the Doors' "Five to One" and "Break on Through," Nilsson's "Jump Into the Fire," Lennon's "Cold Turkey" and Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression," among others, along with some original tunes. Their debut album will feature a number of notable special guests, including Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl,

Slash, Joe Walsh and AC/DC's Brian Johnson. Video of the group's star-studded recording sessions can be seen here, with artist proceeds from the album going to the charity MusiCares. Keith Richards Makes Past Solo Albums Available Online With the release of Crosseyed Heart, Keith Richards' first solo album in more than two decades, due out next month, the musician will be offering up his two previous LPs online for the first time later this week. The 1988 solo record Talk Is Cheap and 1992's Main Offender will be available to stream and download, via Richards' own Mindless Records label, on Friday, August 14th. Richards released Talk Is Cheap at a time when Mick Jagger was promoting his second solo album, 1987's Primitive Cool. When Rolling Stone asked Richards how it felt to put out his first solo record, in a 1988 interview, the guitarist said he felt ambivalent. "It's kind of strange, because it was never in the cards for me," Richards said. "It was not something I wanted to do. Also, in the back of my mind, doing a solo record meant a slight sense of failure. The only reason I would do a solo album was because I couldn't keep the Stones together." The group, of course, regrouped the next year and put out 1989's Steel Wheels. These days, Richards and Jagger are both happy in the Stones. Earlier this year, the guitarist told Rolling Stone he wanted to see how far the band could go. At the time of the interview, in advance of the band's recent Zip Code tour, Richards had decided on the release date for Crosseyed Heart and said he was still considering performing live as a solo artist. Richards made Crosseyed Heart with two musicians he worked with on his past solo releases, guitarist Waddy Wachtel and

drummer/co-producer Steve Jordan. The record also features appearances by Norah Jones, Spooner Oldham, Aaron Neville and Larry Campbell, as well as late Stones saxophonist Bobby Keys. In other Richards news, Netflix will premiere a new documentary about the guitarist, Under the Influence, by filmmaker Morgan Neville, who recently won the "Best Documentary" Oscar for 20 Feet From Stardom. It will explore the music that inspires Richards and how he writes music and will appear on the streaming service on September 18th. Sara Evans, REO Speedwagon Tapped for 'CMT Crossroads' The latest installment of the musical mash-up series CMT Crossroads takes flight next month as REO Speedwagon, the rock band that hit with "Time for Me to Fly," meets "Born to Fly" country superstar Sara Evans for an episode Evans calls "a dream come true." The concert will be taped in front of a live audience at the Factory in Franklin, just south of Nashville, and will premiere Saturday, September 19th, at 10:00 p.m. ET on CMT. This marks Evans' third appearance on the genre-hopping series. In May 2008, the singer was joined by The Voice coach Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5, and in 2012, she was among the acts on an episode featuring Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons. "We met Sara Evans when REO played with Brad Paisley at the Sony Music Nashville annual cruise and we all became fast friends," REO Speedwagon lead singer Kevin Cronin says in a statement. "When we got the offer to do CMT Crossroads with her we jumped at the chance to hear Sara's sweet voice on our songs, and to put our spin on hers. Sara put me at ease right away and her energy is contagious." "I've been a huge fan of REO Speedwagon for as long as I can remember," Evans notes. "Their songs have been a part of the soundtrack of my life."

The episode will mark the 52nd installment of the network's music series since it first debuted in January 2002 with Lucinda Williams and Elvis Costello. Other artists who have appeared more than once include Kenny Chesney and Martina McBride. Earlier this summer, the most recent Crossroads pairing took place as Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd shared the stage with Brantley Gilbert. In 2014 alone, the series spotlighted Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic, Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry, and Lee Ann Womack and John Legend. Danger Mouse Preps New Record Label, Signs Autolux Danger Mouse has announced his own Columbia Records imprint, 30th Century Records, which will feature artists personally signed by the songwriter-producer. Danger Mouse – best known for high-profile collaborations (Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells) and production work (U2, the Black Keys, Beck) – will debut the label with his first signing, experimental rock trio Autolux, who are currently working on their follow-up to 2010's Transit Transit. Danger Mouse is rumored to be producing two of the most two heavily anticipated new LPs from artists at opposite ends of the sonic spectrum: Red Hot Chili Peppers and Adele. "We've got lots of songs, and we're working with an unnamed producer who is really challenging us to find new ways to come up with new music," stated drummer Chad Smith. "We've done the 'guys get in the room and jam out songs, everybody playing together all at once' thing. And we wrote a bunch of songs that way. And we're now going to try another method that will be really challenging for us and will bring new, exciting results for the band. "We've written and recorded in a way that we've never done before, so the record is going great," Smith added. "We all have high hopes that it's going to take off and we're going to do something very different and unique for the Red Hot Chili Peppers."

With a career spanning over 25 years, four number one hits, 18 top ten’s and record sales eclipsing 75 million, Taylor Dayne has remained a household name throughout. Crossing over multiple genres has been natural for her since her music comes from her heart. Dayne’s fiery passion for music, love and life has been laid out for the world to enjoy as we have had the pleasure of watching her grow before our eyes. Needless to say, it was a true honor to sit down with Taylor as she opened up and let Full Access inside of her present day world. We touched upon multiple topics covering her entire career. Naturally, with a career that has lasted as long as hers, I need to ask, after all these years what is it that keeps her going? “You need different prospectives, initiatives and desires,” she says. “I guess I always remained very hungry. I love that feeling of being on stage.” After multiple top ten Billboard hits Taylor Dayne tells me, “I better not be done yet.” She continues, “We just released my Greatest Hits Live CD. I wrote a song called Born To Sing and we recorded an acoustic version that is available on there. When we play it live, people just seem to resonate to it. It's a very personal song for me.” We had talked about her growing up in New York and what influenced her at a

5

young age. She says, “My family and the music we listened to on Sunday's. My parents were avid theater goers and celebrated that by taking us to the theater all the time. It made me appreciate the arts and different ways of creating the arts. They were very encouraging. All that helped me realize that I needed to take care of my voice, so not to blow out my voice in the clubs, I began taking lessons. I became classically trained and to this day I still warm up and vocalize the way I was trained too. I grew up with New York radio and musicians like Bill Withers, Al Green, Karen Carpenter, Blood Sweat and Tears and Pink Floyd. Then came the writing influence from Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. They mesmerized me.” With so many artists out there I asked Taylor who she would like the opportunity to collaborate with and this is what she said, “Dre, Kanye, Justin Timberlake and I could go on and on, but those are the top of the list for me.” Knowing how diverse her taste in music is, what would I find on her playlist right now? “Let's start out with older Jamiroquai, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Anthony Hamilton, Foo Fighters, Calvin Harris and David Guetta, just to name a few,” she says. “It really depends on the mood I'm in.” With all the success, it must be hard to make your way through the day without

being noticed. Does she enjoy being in the public eye? Dayne tells me, “Yes I do. I love having fun with the pictures and meeting new people everyday. It never gets old.” As I was getting ready to start this interview, I was feeling the nerves and it made me think about whether she still gets that feeling at this point of her career. “Sure,” she says. “It depends on the audience or the venue where I'm at. I don’t get nervous about the performance if I'm prepared, but yes I'm always a bundle of nerves. It's just my state of being. God help me.” Being on the road has its ups and downs. When asked what are the best and most difficult parts Ms. Dayne replied, “The best part sure ain't the physical part. Anybody that says they enjoy getting on a plane or a bus is crazy. Touring use to be so nice when you could just jump on a plane and go, but with security now it makes it difficult. Getting up on stage and looking back at your drummer or keyboardist and know that you are hitting the notes makes ya feel good and the crowd noticing that has them walking away feeling that good vibe also. When I'm reaching people and helping them heal, I know I'm going to leave the stage a better person.” Music is just one part of the life of a musician. You have to find a way of balancing the other obligations. “It's not easy I tell you,” she says. “Raising kids is tough, but I think we are up to pace. They are 13 and it makes me think a lot where before I just did. They think a lot and they are giving it to me. Sometimes it hurts, they push the buttons. That's what children do, that's what happy families do. I'm still learning and growing. Had a wonderful conversation with my son yesterday, we are in that moment now.” With as many Taylor Dayne songs that are out there, I had to put her on the spot and find out which one is her favorite. “I have

three that I love to perform which are I’ll Be Your Shelter, Tell It To My Heart and Love Will Lead You Back. Taylor seems to have a connection to Florida, there have been many times when she has scheduled shows just in the Sunshine State and she never misses it on a full tour. What is it about this love affair with our southern peninsula? “For one my parents live there,” she laughs. “Look at the eclectic shows I'm doing there. I played The Lyric Performing Art Center in Stuart, I'm doing the Magic City Casino in Miami on September 12th and coming back with the whole freestyle line up at Amalie Arena in Tampa on September 19th. That's when I look at my touring and say ‘Wow, I have really crossed over.’ The melting pot there makes it fun.” As our conversation came to a close the one thing that I walked away with is the simple fact that Taylor Dayne will always transcend time. Her music will never have a time stamp on it. It is as current now as it was then. Make sure to visit www.taylordayne.com to download her “Greatest Hits Live” CD, to watch her newest video “Dreaming” and to keep up on all things Taylor Dayne! Taylor Dayne is part of the spectacular lineup performing at the Super Freestyle Explosion on September 19th at Amalie Arena. Tickets are available for this show.

1968! That's the year Deep Purple was formed. 19 studio albums, 35 plus live albums and 43 singles. Talk about history! With 27 tours under their belts, they are considered one of the hardest touring bands in the world. No matter what the line up, they have always been a powerhouse. When keyboardist and founding member Jon Lord took ill in 2002, they called upon a storied replacement to step in and carry on the signature sound of Deep Purple. Don Airey has been a mainstay ever since. With a resume that includes stints with Rainbow, Ozzy, Black Sabbath, ELO, Gay Moore, Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Jethro Tull, Saxon, Steve Vai, Michael Schenker, Bruce Dickinson and Brian May, it was safe to say there wasn't a better musician to continue the legacy that was built before his arrival. When I found out that Mr. Airey was available, I jumped at the opportunity to sit down with him and find out a little bit of what lies behind the man that has helped to make the keyboards into a lead instrument, instead of just a third piece of the rythym section. At 67 years of age, this Sunderland, England born musician still plays like a kid. I asked him if he could point me in the direction of the fountain of youth. With a laugh he says, “Hennessy Cognac.”

He definitely set the tone for this chat session and wiped away any nervous feeling I was battling. With a career like Don’s, I'm wanting to find out who we need to thank for setting him off in the right direction. “My Father, who was a piano player himself, got me started as a youth,” he tells me. “He always encouraged me and when he heard that I liked someone, he would go out and get their record for me. Early musical influences consisted of Charley Parker and Bill Evans, all the Jazz greats he introduced me to. He had a profound effect on me.” In order to withstand the test of time, there has to be changes made in ones life to accommodate the future. Airey tells me, “Complacency was key. Especially on the road. You have to keep yourself occupied and not get into the rut.” Being in a band and always on the road often makes it difficult to balance life. When asked about this, Mr. Airey says, “Touring is a problem when you are a family man. It's always been a part of my life. I have been married a long time, 38 years.” He continues with a laugh, “My wife says the best sight she sees is two big suitcases in the hall. It's a good arrangement, I'm going out and the money is coming in.” I wonder if nerves still play a part before

a show. “I think I'd be even more nervous if I didn't get nervous,” he says. It seems that there is always that one person or group that eludes you, someone that you have always wanted to work with, but doesn't seem to come to fruition. Don says, “For me that would be Eddie Van Halen. I have always wanted to work with him. I think he is a marvelous player. I think he's about the only one I haven't worked with. I'm a great admirer of his playing.” I thought I would try and put him on the spot. I asked Don Airey to pick a favorite project, outside of Deep Purple, that he has been involved with. “The first incarnation of Rainbow,” he says. “With Graham Bonnet and Cozy Powell. That was a marvelous experience. What an incredible band. Also, Gary Moore’s Still Got The Blues project.” Looking back on the history of Deep Purple line-ups, I asked him what he thinks is the key to the current. “Steve Morse came in and didn't try to be Ritchie Blackmore, he was just himself and I have done the same thing. We have kept our own identities. Obviously, the Hammond is still there, but I'm more of a synth man than Jon was. Steve and I get along well. He keeps me up to speed, he keeps all of us up to speed. His knowledge of rock music is

encyclopedia like.” Being involved with music in this capacity for as long as he has, I ask him about current bands. What has he been listening to. “Rival Sons,” he says. “They are a great band. Deep Purple is fortunate enough to have them on our upcoming European tour.” With all of the topics we touched upon, I would need an entire issue of Full Access to fit them in. With his experience and knowledge I could sit there all day and just listen to him talk about the many projects and musicians he has been involved with. I was lucky enough to catch Deep Purple on their current tour. Between the five members, they have a combined age of 335 years. But in all honesty, age has not slowed them down a bit. They still sound just as good if not better than when I saw them almost 30 years ago. With most bands, member changes alter the core to a degree that leaves you wondering why they continue, but not with Deep Purple. I went into the show with the mindset of if nothing else, I was going to walk away with witnessing a historic show. Still amazing, so if you have the chance please do yourself a favor, get out there a see it for yourself. Be sure to take the younger ones with you, so they have the opportunity to see what rock and roll is truly about!

Who is Bebe Rexha? If you don't know the answer to that question mark my words, you should and you will. She was the copen behind “The Monster” with Eminem & Rihanna, which won her a little thing called a “Grammy.” She has appeared on hit songs by Nico & Vinz, Cash Cash, Pitbull and David Guetta. She has a solo album called “I Don't Wanna Grow Up (May 12, 2015 – Warner Bros.)” featuring songs such as “I Can't Stop Drinking About You,” “Gone” and “I'm Gonna Show You Crazy.” Take her exotic look, melodic voice, ability to write hit songs, musicianship and passion, roll it up and what you have is the whole package. I had the pleasure of joining this Brooklyn, New York born talent while she was in the middle of “Van’s Warped Tour 2015.” Aside from her solo career being in full swing, she is also the lead singer of Pete Wentz’s band “Black Cards.” I asked her about the difference between the two and this is what she said, “With the solo project it all falls on you, there is no one else to blame. Success, failure, creative control all reflects on you.” Being of Albanian decent and raised within a different cultural upbringing, I was curious where she drew her influences from. “My mother,” Bebe says. “She is

unconditional. I think she knows my inner voice more than anybody. She knows me down to my bones. She is my cheerleader. Her and music are the two constants in my life.” As she continues to gain momentum through all the collaboration she has been a part of, who is the person she would most like to work with next? Rexha says, “Kanye West! I love his presence, I really respect him even though I feel he is on the edge and misunderstood. He always speaks his mind. As I grow I'm getting thicker skin and I feel like I could stand up to him. There is just something very interesting about him and very real.” We talk about the ups and downs that come with being on the road. “My favorite part is the fans and seeing people sing my songs. It makes me feel like I'm here for a reason. Now the worst part is missing the family and dealing with a relationship. I literally just went through a break-up while on this tour. It's a constant grind everyday. You are doing it for the love of music and being part of something bigger. Unfortunately, you lose people along the way and it is painful. But this is what we have chosen to do and it's just a part of it.” As popularity grows, so does the attention from fans. Bebe explains, “I used to have

Full Access Magazine


a lot of social anxiety and even to this day. I don't like going to parties or going out, but when I get up on that stage and meet the fans, it's like I turn into this alter-ego. I turn into this other person, moonshine.” Moonshine? “Yes, Moonshine,” she says with a laugh. When one’s family or friends attend a show it usually raises the anxiety level. Bebe Rexha says, “When my parents are watching, it really makes me nervous. I just want everything to be so perfect when the family or friends are around, that I add extra pressure, so I get really nervous.” Most people dislike change, but sometimes it is a necessity. Certain things demand an adjustment in ones life. I asked Ms. Rexha what has she had to change to further her career in music? “Fear,” she says. “I wouldn't move out of my parents house and I had to live by their rules. In their culture by now, I should be married to another Albanian. I knew I was different from everybody in my family, so I had to fight that fear, so I could move out and live in a different state. I grew up very sheltered, so I had to make that move so I could go off and pursue my dream, my career.” There are a lot of things that need fixing in this world. I asked Bebe what she would change in today's music world? “I feel that everyone gets put into a box, labeled. If I wear all black or grunge it up a bit, they look at me and say that I must be a rock chick. I would make it to where you can be who you want and just call it music. That simple.” In closing, I asked Bebe Rexha to tell the world what she wants us to know about herself. This is what she had to say, “I am like every other human being in the world. I feel alone sometimes. I am constantly trying to find myself and love myself. I do this because it is my therapy and I hope for it to be other people's therapy.

I hope to start a movement, so that guys and girls have someone to really look up to. May it be a song that's meaningful or just a party fun song that they can listen to for 3:30 and forget about all the screwed up stuff that is going on in their lives because that's the beauty of music. That is what music is supposed to do. It is supposed to free us from the reality of the world. Sometimes the world isn't a pretty place. So, with that being said, I hope someday I can sellout arenas and just rock with people, bringing them to a different place, even if only for one night. Bebe Rexha will be performing in Orlando on September 26th, opening for Nick Jonas at the House of Blues. Showtime is 7:30pm. Tickets are still available for this show.

If you are a fan of country music, chances are that you heard Old Dominion’s music before you even heard of the band. They have written songs for famous country artists like The Band Perry, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan, but now they are focused on writing music and on performing the music themselves. Old Dominion is a five member band of country songwriters: Matthew Ramsey (lead singer), Trevor Rosen (guitar and keyboard), Whit Sellers (drums), Geoff Sprung (bass), and Brad Tursi (guitar). Matthew Ramsey sat down with Full Access magazine and talked about the secrets to maneuvering through the Nashville music scene, the band’s songwriting, and the band’s road to success. The band has its roots in Virginia, as 4 of the members are from there; those roots are reflected in the band’s name. Ramsey explained, “We wanted something that kind of would signify Virginia. Old Dominion happens to be the nickname for the State of Virginia…we were setting up for a show one night and I said, you know, the only thing I could find that’s not taken is Old Dominion and everybody looks at me and just says, well, ‘what’s wrong with that?’ So we said ‘alright, sounds good.’” Old Dominion also has a very simple, but

15

distinct logo as well. “We wanted something … that was kind of memorable and that we could kind of slap all over everything…we were looking at a lot of beer logos and a lot of like micro-brewery logos, and we just kind of liked the impact that they made,” Ramsey reflected as he described the origin of the band’s logo. With their band name and logo, they moved to Nashville to chase the songwriter’s dream and found that it might take 10-15 years to acquire the ingredients needed for success. Ramsey explained,” It’s just like going to school when you move to Nashville, and the talent pool there is the best of the best writers and musicians from all over the country… that’s who you’re competing with… and it just takes that long, to stay after it, learn the game, get in the circles, do all the networking, and learn how to write for the radio and for what’s next on the radio; not for what’s on the radio now. A lot of people move there and they chase what’s on the radio now, but those songs were written three or four years ago; so you’re already late to the game if you’re doing that.” The band learned a lot while writing songs in Nashville. Ramsey continued, “Everyone hates the word “formula,” but there is sort of a formula to a hit song: there’s a big hit

Full Access Magazine


chorus, there are hooks, and finding ways to write these hooks in a new way…so you learn how to navigate around those things while still write what’s in your heart, it’s a balance, and these choices become second nature to you.” With thousands of songwriters relocating to Nashville all of the time, chasing the same dream, one would think that the Nashville music scene would be cold and cut-throat. Ramsey described it quite differently,” I’ve been in Nashville for probably twelve, thirteen years now, and I have yet to see anything cut-throat about it… it’s competition for sure, but it’s healthy and supportive competition …everyone there loves a great song; that’s why they’re there…and when they recognize a great song, then they’re happy to let that song succeed…the ones that are cut-throat won’t make it, because it’s a very supportive business.” However, it takes more than talent and connections to get noticed in Nashville. “Some of it is luck… there are so many amazing people out there that will never see success and that’s a shame. There are people out there that are way better than us, that will probably never see success; there’s a big part of it that is just waiting your turn, being patient, keeping a positive attitude, and knowing that you have to constantly work to get better,” Ramsey added. Through this commitment, Old Dominion’s songwriting and performances has earned them recognition in the country world. For example, they were invited to perform at the Grand Old Opry. “It’s a huge badge of honor to be invited by the Opry to come and play because it’s been around so long, and it’s such a staple in country music that when you get tapped for it, people start turning their heads.” A few months ago, Old Dominion performed at the CMA Music Festival kick off concert. Ramsey recounted, “Award shows, I think, are always great because fans from everywhere come to those and there’s always like a certain energy

that those fans bring. Country music fans in general are very loyal to not just one artist, but to the genre of country music…so when they show up and they travel for a show like that, they’re coming to celebrate the entire genre and every artist that’s there…so you really can feel a lot of love from those crowds.” Old Dominion has been recording in the studio finishing up its first full-length album on RCA Nashville. RCA has given them full reign to express their musical and songwriting skills without creative interference. The album has accents from various genres of music sewn throughout. The band recognizes that the lines between the genres of music have been blurred, so the album has a little rock, rap, and hip hop in the country songs. Ramsey described the album as sounding, “Very fun with a sad undertone through the whole thing.” Old Dominion will be returning to Florida to perform at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando, on September 16th for K92’s All-Star Jam, which also includes Sam Hunt, RaeLynn, Canaan Smith, Parmalee, Eric Paslay, Frankie Ballard, Cassadee Pope and Michael Ray.

Within these words will lie the story of a band out of Detroit, MI. This band is like none other. They are hard to take serious, but in turn, they are serious about their trade. With Jason Spencer (Guitar), Chad Nicefield (Vocals), Kyle Landry (Guitar), Puhy (Drums) and James Lascu (Bass), the party is all in a day's work. These five make up the band Wilson. I sat down with Wilson on what was Chad’s birthday, so the mayhem was already in full swing. On tour supporting their latest release Right To Rise (Razor & Tie 2015), I cornered not one, but all five members and held them captive for what was to be a confusing, but extremely enjoyable 20 minutes of extreme interviewing. Out of the gate I try to bring the tone to a serious level and delve into the transition from 2013 to now. Chad says, “Well Jason started the band and in the beginning the band started out not being taken seriously and how I view the changes was weeding out the people who weren't in it to win it. As things got more impressingly ramped up, they realized where they needed to be in life and it wasn't in that place. As those changes went on, we found the right people to replace them.” Comparing past projects to a current one becomes the topic. Kyle says, “This

19

compared to other bands is described best by one word, fun.” Puhy adds, “There was always that one person, if not more that always talked about how serious they were and all the stuff they wanted to do, but never follow through with it. This is the first band that I have been with where everybody knows what we have to do and are actually doing it. We are all in it for the same reason and we back up what we say, which is awesome.” There are always a lot of influences in a persons life. I asked where theirs came from. “My parents,” says Chad. Puhy continues, “My brother. He is eight years older than me and he is a photographer. He puts his passion in his work and I always looked up to him. When I was coming up a little bit, he was always the person I could turn to for advise.” Frustration builds at times so I wonder if there was ever a time when they wanted to call it quits. “No, I think every one in this room is a glutton for punishment. This isn't band number one and isn't even band number two, so I think that we realized what we all wanted to do with our lives at a very young age and have been trying ferociously and violently to get to this point,” says Chad. I ask who they would most like to be on the

same stage with. Collectively, “Deftones, Metallica, AC/DC, Kenny G, Foo Fighters.” Chad says to Puhy, “If we get booked on a Kenny G show, because of this I am gonna slap you so hard.” The ups and downs of touring exist. “The best part of touring is playing each show,” says Jason. “The worst part is everything else,” James adds. As they gain popularity and become more noticeable, I ask how it feels to be sitting at the cool kids table. Puhy says, “Personally for me, it never has been difficult to divide the public eye thing and alone time. It's fun to be social, but yet you need that time to yourself. I have just as much value who I am away from the spotlight. As long as you know yourself in those two forms then you should be fine.” Chad says, “I love talking to people, but sometimes with all the shows, we do I need to protect my instrument and talking to much can affect that. Tonight maybe a time to mess around, but you always have to think about tomorrow. Sometimes, I need to take a step back.” James adds, “ For me, it is difficult to accept a lot of praise. I'm always feeling that there is so much more I can be doing to improve myself.” The talk turns to parenting. “I feel like I'm the father figure of the band and Jason is probably the mother figure. He is more into the organization of stuff and he also has that mother like nurturing side to him.” Puhy leads into the changes that need to be made. “I needed to become more social. Talking to random people has been tough. No problem if I know you.” Chad says, “Every few months, I notice a small change in myself. That comes from being able to look from a different perspective. Looking at myself from how other people would look at me. I'm a go, go, go type of personality. So perspective has been the hardest thing, but I have been working on

it, as we move forward through these past couple of years.” When it all comes to end, how people have perceived you through the years can be important. I asked the guys how they want to be remembered when it's all said and done. Kyle says, “That we deserved everything that came to us. That we rolled up our sleeves and got it done. Those dudes had a great time doing it.” There ya have it, I actually pulled some seriousness out of these guys. It wasn't hard. When I looked back on this interview I came to the realization that I would be hard pressed to find a more passionate and down to earth group of guys. They know where they are headed and it is all because they haven't forgotten where they came from. By the way, their show is off the hook! Wilson is currently touring with Tremonti and Trivium and will be performing in Florida at the House of Blues in Orlando on September 11th and The Ritz in Tampa on September 12th. Be sure you catch this great show.

Distinctions like electric and acoustic are akin to flavor profiles when selecting from the smorgasbord of musical stylings. To be electric is to be at least a little bit spicy. Whether we're talking lamb vindaloo or blazin' buffalo wings, to plug in is to cook with some heat. Acoustic music, in turn, has a cool, refreshing flavor; think sushi, or perhaps a fruit salad. Shane Doss is comfortable catering toward both palettes. Producer, multi-instrumentalist, and lifelong rock-and-roll artist, he formed PrideTribe after being introduced to vocalist Carolyn Street. He had just recently relocated to Tampa Bay, by way of Atlanta, having moved to Florida a year ago to work on songs for a now-defunct collaboration. When he and Carolyn initially started writing music together, their focus centered around songs for acoustic sets. “What happened was, when I met Shane, he was putting his electric soul somewhere else,” she said, “but that situation sort of stalled.” Soon, the material once reserved for this other project migrated into PrideTribe's kitchen. Soar and Roar, their debut EP, reflects their newfound freedom to explore both electric and acoustic influences within a single endeavor. Two of the EP's five tracks are already

available on SoundCloud. The first song, “Fractured,” opens with gentle, pianodriven verses before building into a melodic power ballad. “Rise” similarly starts with a soft-spoken acoustic guitar that transitions into an inspirational anthem propelled by distorted riffs. PrideTribe thrives in the space between softer, unplugged songwriting and the more bombastic forces of classic rock. Their attention to dynamics can be found even in the name of their EP – Soar and Roar is a symbolic amalgamation of an eagle and a lion, two animals that very much embody Shane and Carolyn's individual approaches to music. Shane is ever the lion. Born a Leo, his guitar playing is powerful yet precise, catering both to tradition and innovation. Raised in Chicago, he remembers seeing Boston play Chicago Stadium back when he was only 5 or 6 years old. “This was unique,” Shane remembers of his discovering rock and roll. “It was like a circus.” There was no looking back after that concert. Ever since, he's kept influences like Bad Company, Styx and Van Halen close to his guitar. Shane grew from instrumentalist to record producer after cutting his teeth in studios around Atlanta.

Recording and producing are distinct processes within Shane's craft. “I become a different person when I'm producing,” he said. He'll be the first to admit that he tends to be a lot more critical when sitting on the other side of the soundboard. Yet despite his high expectations, when producing Soar and Roar with Carolyn, Shane was taken back by how often she would hit the mark on her very first take. “Carolyn's voice speaks for itself,” he said. The eagle to Shane's lion, Carolyn brings balance to the group's six-string melodies with her soaring vocals. As a duo, PrideTribe has played in front of local crowds, including a spot as headliners at this year's Shark Fest Music Festival at Screwie Louie’s in Seminole. While they have started to make a name for themselves with their acoustic selections, the band is looking to expand its roster in order to incorporate the material recorded for Soar and Roar into their live performances. Their search for a rhythm section is dedicated to finding the right musicians. PrideTribe is patient. “We don't want any hobby rockers,” Shane said. “We're doin' the art, the real thing.” Guiding their voyage is manager Tom Parrish of Shark Alley Records. Carolyn and Tom had worked together before, and Shane was quickly welcomed into what is fondly referred to as the “Shark Alley family.” Being an independent act, PrideTribe is

very aware that it is an upstream swim to pursue recording and performing original content rather than pandering to the built-in fanbase inherent to playing covers. “As original artists we have to be determined to have our voices heard,” Shane said. Soar and Roar will formally release once the band has found their drummer and bassist. Given the considerable progress PrideTribe has made over such a short period of time, it is a safe bet that the group will be squared off at four sooner rather than later. Once united, the tribe plans to tour festival circuits to spread their sound. Until then, as Shane says, “It's all about finding the right players.” What PrideTribe lacks in a rhythm section, they make up for in dedication and craftsmanship. After talking with the band this afternoon, Shane sent me a followup message that they had just booked their next gig: October 1st at Uncle Fats. This window, between now and whenever Shane and Carolyn turn into a four-piece, is a great time to check out the softer side of PrideTribe. Not that their acoustic leanings will be discarded completely. The duo are excited to announce that they are in talks to record an unplugged version of their EP, aptly abbreviated to solely Soar. Stay tuned to PrideTribe's SoundCloud station and Facebook page for the latest news and grooves as they prepare for what's next.

The Foreign Exchange Tales from the Land of Milk & Honey FE/Hard Boiled 333d2 by Terry Canter If you are curious about Phonte and Nicolay’s mindset going into their fifth studio album as the Foreign Exchange, just look at their social media accounts. Phonte, the group’s affable frontman, feeds his Twitter stream with acerbic real talk and hot-take movie reviews. On Facebook, producer Nicolay posts videos of bobblehead dolls in his studio, and jokes about his paltry royalty checks from streaming services. After 11 years together, and several albums of grown folks' soul, it seems the two aren’t taking themselves too seriously. They're having fun and don't mind bringing you into the fold. Tales from the Land of Milk and Honey is a delightful collection of sophisticated R&B and electronic dance, tied directly to the era of Morris Day funk grooves and Teddy Riley’s New Jack Swing. As it plays, Phonte, Nicolay, keyboardist Zo!, and vocalists Carmen Rodgers and Tamisha Waden recall the storied Minneapolis funk sound while staying true to their own established blend of Eurocentric electrosoul. In a way, Milk and Honey feels like a concept record: The press photos resemble a parody of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and the title track evokes Sergio Mendes’ brand of airy Brazilian jazz. The lyrics pull from Stevie Wonder's songbook of imagined utopias and peaceful horizons. Then suddenly, on "Work It to the Top", Phonte sings in a nasal tone that channels groups like Ready for the World and Cameo over a vintage, computerized-R&B stomp. Milk and Honey moves swiftly and has the same radiant mood as 2013’s Love in Flying Colors, the group’s previous album. But if Colors embraced the joy of a new relationship, Milk and Honey explores the 25

comforts of sustained romance, where the urge to hit the club gives way to Netflix date nights and glasses of wine at the crib. "Body", a standout near the album’s end, says as much: "Nowhere to go and it’s nothing on these streets," Phonte sings, who addressed a similar notion on his 2011 solo album, Charity Starts at Home. The familiarity of the music is the best kind, and for anyone who has kept up closely with this project, it's both a joy and a comfort. Ever since the group’s landmark debut, the Foreign Exchange has evolved into a roving crew of musicians who specialize in adult contemporary soul. They tend to focus on the day-to-day aspects of love and life, which helps them stay connected with their cult followers, some of whom have kept up with the crew since its inception on Okayplayer. Overall, Milk and Honey is a victory lap and a nice step forward in the group’s creative progress. Or maybe it’s a two-step. Rayland Baxter Imaginary Man Japanese Rainbow ggggf by Terry Canter

On the cover of Rayland Baxter’s 2012 debut album, the Nashville folk singer portrays himself as a longhaired, mustachioed rambler with holes in the elbows of his denim shirt. He’s covering his eyes in the “see-no-evil” pose, but on feathers & fishHooks, Baxter confronts some of those troubles of lost love and foolish actions through fingerpicked guitar ballads full of honest admissions. Three years later, Baxter cleaned up for his second album cover. Half of his chiseled, now-shaved silhouette is masked in the shadows while the other half stares you down like you’re now the one performing those evil acts that shall not be seen. The son of pedal steel player Bucky Baxter

Full Access Magazine


(whose credits have appeared on Bob Dylan, Steve Earle and R.E.M. records), Rayland melds this traditional country twang with newer experimental sounds. The elder Baxter does, in fact, play on Imaginary Man, joined by a muddled string section on “Oh My Captain,” a lightly distorted electric guitar lead in single “Yellow Eyes,” and extra-terrestrial attempt at communication in the Mac DeMarcoesque “Freakin Me Out.” The unifying thread between Baxter’s two efforts is his slowly warbling tenor. His familiar, yet, unusual yearning punctuates songs like the two-and-a-half-minute acoustic “Rugged Lovers” and the similarly spare, album closing “Lady of the Desert.” But mostly, Imaginary Man sounds like Baxter composing a conscious push to the mainstream. It’s just that his previous, strange, and wanderlusting alter-ego seems to capture more curiosity. Palehound Dry Food Exploding In Sound ggdff by Terry Canter

On 2013's Bent Nail EP, Palehound's Ellen Kempner sang about taking a carrot for a pet in order to stave off late-teen loneliness. She makes similarly childlike gestures on her debut album. "You made beauty a monster to me, so I'm kissing all the ugly things I see," she seethes at an ex in a so there voice on Dry Food's title track. It's the most deliciously futile form of revenge and reclamation: doing the opposite. Dry Food is partially a product of the 21year-old Boston-dwelling songwriter's first big breakup—the deeper kind of solitude

of having known and lost someone. Its sound captures the Herculean efforts required to survive the ensuing slump: "All I need's a little sleep and I'll be good to clean and eat," she sings in a medicated sigh on "Easy," her acoustic guitar rising and dipping with the methodical pace of someone trying to make a new routine stick. But like her former camp counselor and roommate, Speedy Ortiz's Sadie Dupuis, Kempner never lets a sad jam wallow: she kicks the end of the song into shape with a zippy electric guitar motif and some awkward, itchy squall. It's followed by "Cinnamon," which takes the opposite tack, hooked around the kind of amiable, waterlogged psych burble that Mac DeMarco noodles in his sleep. Kempner sings dreamily about her worst self-defeating impulses, but is stirred from her reverie by a divine revelation that her life is becoming "a pretty lie." Frantic drums force the song somewhere agitated and ascendant, but instead of bursting into some bright new phrase, the furor falls away like a captivating slo-mo bellyflop. Saddest of all is closer "Seakonk," where Kempner protests that she's not alone, actually; she's home watching TV with her parents, sister and their dogs. There's a blithe fairground pirate ship sway to the song, which she closes with a jaunty "doo doo doo" that could have come from the credits of one of the cartoons she's watching—only she lets the final note deflate with a groan. It's at this point that Dry Food confronts the point it's been evading: kidding yourself is no way to recover, and comfort offers little impetus to move on. Palehound's discomfiting, unflinching debut suggests she knew it all along.

Whitesnake / the Dead Daisies (hard rock Live - orlando, FL) - 8/03/15

When David Coverdale announced that The Purple Album, Whitesnake’s 12th studio release, would be a “re-imagination” of songs from his tenure in the Deep Purple Mark III and IV lineups, opinions were mixed. Perhaps some felt that without the distinctive vocal parts from Coverdale’s band mate Glenn Hughes, the material would lack the dynamics of the original recordings. When Whitesnake brought their “2015 Purple Tour” to the Hard Rock Live in Orlando, any doubts were quickly erased when the band wisely opened with perhaps the most well-known track from that period, “Burn.” New guitarist Joel Hoekstra, along with 13-year Whitesnake veteran Reb Beach, were quick to demonstrate the expert guitar work that this material demands, pulling off several solos that would (or should!) make Ritchie Blackmore proud. Rounding out the band are longtime bassist Michael Devin, keyboard player Michele Luppi, and the drummer with the most years spent in Whitesnake, the extraordinary Tommy Aldridge. The 13-song set included six Deep Purple tracks from the new release, four songs from the massively popular self-titled 1987 album, two from the 1984 breakthrough Slide It In, and the title track from the excellent 2011 release Forevermore, which Coverdale dedicated to “all the fans that have supported me for 40+ years.” There was also a brief, but dazzling, dual guitar solo leading into “Mistreated,” and an amazingly powerful solo from Tommy Aldridge, who turns 65 this year and attacks his kit with an energy that drummers half his age would find hard to muster. Presenting a set that is almost half Deep Purple songs may have left a few fans disappointed who might have wanted a few more from Slide It In and perhaps one or two from Slip Of The Tongue, but this is what Whitesnake 2015 has to offer and what was advertised. David Coverdale is justifiably

proud of the songs he wrote and sang from 1974 to 1976, and delivered them (and the Whitesnake material) with the same vocal and physical agility he has always displayed.The regular set ended with the powerful one-two punch of “Stormbringer,” which I was pleasantly surprised to see dozens of fans in my vicinity singing along with, and the Number One hit “Here I Go Again,” which seemingly the ENTIRE audience knew the words to. After a few minutes, the band returned with an epic ten minute version of “Still Of The Night,” which Coverdale was clearly saving a few high notes for. Also on the bill was The Dead Daisies, who put on a great opening performance, and performing songs from the debut album including opening the show with “Mexico.” This very talented group of veteran musicians gave the audience a high-energy show, and think that everyone there was very in to their performance. This was definitely a fun show to watch and would definitely recommend going if this show decides to come back to the area.
