Tool Announce 2016 Tour, 'Unparalleled Sonic and Visual Experience' Two weeks after Tool staged their lone concert performance together in 2015 – a Halloween gig that featured the band dressing up as Led Zeppelin – the group has announced a January tour. Tool's official site was updated last Thursday night with a note presumably penned by singer Maynard James Keenan, who's currently trekking in support of Puscifer's Money Shot as well as working on an authorized biography. In the post, the author hinted that a window has opened in Keenan's packed schedule, allowing for a Tool tour. "For those of you who only like NEWS about TOOL, here's something that should be of great interest," Tool wrote on their official site. "The impenetrable veil of my dark scrying mirror finally cleared today - enough so, in fact - that I could perceive a large heptagram on a complexly lit stage where four performers were dwarfed by dramatic video projections. Evidently the sonic and visual extravaganza that I was receiving is a rare glimpse of future Tool U.S.A. tour dates in the month of January, 2016." On Tuesday, Tool formally announced the first eight shows of their upcoming trek, which kicks off January 9th at San Diego's Viejas Arena. The tour then slithers its way eastward along a southern route before culminating in Charlotte, North Carolina on January 26th. Tickets for the gigs go on sale November 20th; Check out Tool's official Facebook for more information. Puscifer's current tour concludes December 14th in Prescott, Arizona. Progress has been slow on Tool's first LP since 2006's 10,000 Days, but in an October Rolling Stone interview, Keenan assured fans that the band is working on the follow-up. "Do I seem like a lazy person to you? They're working hard in their own way; I'm working hard in my own way, and I've got nothin' for ya," Keenan said of the next Tool LP.

Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooter Receives 20-Year Sentence The man charged in connection with the April incident where multiple gunshots were fired at Lil Wayne's tour buses in Atlanta has pleaded guilty to the shooting. Jimmy Carlton Winfrey was sentenced to 20 years – 10 in prison followed by 10 on probation – after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors. Winfrey was initially indicted on 30 counts stemming from the April shooting, but as per the deal, he only pleaded guilty to six gang-related charges, TMZ reports. No one was injured in the incident. Winfrey is the only one so far to face charges for the April 26th shooting, even though Cash Money CEO Bryan "Birdman" Williams and rapper Young Thug were named as Winfrey's associates. The shooting occurred just months after Lil Wayne's very public beef with Cash Money, his longtime label, an acrimonious split that resulted in Wayne suing the label for $51 million in January. Birdman denied any involvement. In the State of Georgia's indictment against Winfrey in July, prosecutors claimed the Young Thug associate opened fire on the tour buses and then attempted to hide the Camaro he was driving at the time. The indictment noted that, five days before the shooting, Young Thug posted an Instagram video that appeared to threaten Lil Wayne; Winfrey and weapons were seen in that video. Similarly, the video for Young Thug's "Halftime" features Winfrey toting an assault rifle that was similar to the firearm used in the tour bus shooting. After the shooting, Winfrey placed a call to a cell phone owned by Birdman. The indictment spans 30 counts, including aggravated assault, criminal damage to property, possession of a firearm and violations of both the RICO Act and Street Gang Terrorism Prevention Act. According to police, Winfrey orchestrated the shooting in order to gain "street cred," the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Winfrey will

be eligible for parole. Rita Wilson Announces New Album, Spring Tour Actress and musician Rita Wilson will release her self-titled second LP early in 2016 and is taking the new music on the road. The singer-songwriter co-wrote all the tunes on her follow-up to 2012's AM/FM, teaming with some of Nashville's top tunesmiths for the project, including Matraca Berg, Jessi Alexander, Jon Randall, the Warren Brothers and Kristian Bush. Producers on the new LP include Nathan Chapman, Richard Marx, John Shanks and Babyface. Wilson's tour will kick off in March, stopping in more than 20 cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Nashville and Clearwater. Before hitting the road, Wilson will settle in for a residency at New York's Café Carlyle, from February 23rd to March 5th. Pre-sale ticket information is available on her website. Born in Hollywood, Wilson, who is married to Oscar winner Tom Hanks, is recognized for her numerous on screen roles in films (Sleepless in Seattle, It's Complicated) and TV (The Good Wife, Girls), as well as in live theater. A friendship with famed songwriter and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, was the encouragement she needed to try her hand at co-writing, in spite of what she says made for some initially awkward encounters. "It was really nerve-racking, because you go in, meet complete strangers and expose yourself," Wilson tells Rolling Stone Country of her earliest efforts. "You leave there after you've had musical intercourse, and you're left with a beautiful song baby. [Laughs] You have to be open to everything and let it all hang out without any sort of protection. That's what I find so humbling is that people are willing to do that." Rita Wilson will make a stop in Tampa Bay

at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, FL on April 12th. Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott Recording Gospel Album Now that Lady Antebellum's fall and winter hiatus is in effect, the group's Charles Kelley is gearing up for his solo tour — which kicks off November 28th in advance of his solo LP. Now comes news that his bandmate, Hillary Scott, is also working on a new album – a gospel collection she's recording with her parents and younger sister Rylee Jean Scott. Expected early in 2016, the collection will feature gospel standards and new material penned by the family. Scott's mother Linda Davis is perhaps best known for "Does He Love You" — her 1993 Number One duet with Reba McEntire — but before that Grammy-winning smash she sang in a duo called Skip & Linda. Davis's husband Lang Scott is a songwriter, musician and web-design entrepreneur who began playing in Reba's band not long after Davis was tapped to open shows for the country superstar. Hillary Scott often traveled with her parents at that time. The gospel album is being produced by Ricky Skaggs and was inspired in part by Davis and her family performing at the June 2015 funeral of Jim Ed Brown. "He was about family harmonies and his family wanted us to be a part of that," Davis told the Tennessean, adding, "Ever since Hillary was a little girl, [family harmony] is all she's known as well as Rylee Jean." As far as Lady Antebellum's future is concerned, Kelley assures fans the group this is only a break, not a break-up. "We can take some time off and not feel like we're going to lose it all. We felt like that in the past, if we left off the throttle. So, yeah, we're not quite as hot as we were around 'Need You Now,' but we realize the fans are there," he tells Rolling Stone.

John Michael Montgomery, with more than 30 Billboard hits under his proverbial belt, songs like “I Love the Way You Love Me,” “I Swear,” “Be My Baby Tonight,” “Sold,” and many more have earned him his title as a balladeer – but he’s much more than that. “I didn’t want to get painted into the corner as just a balladeer, because I spent years in the clubs honing my skills, and I was able to sing everything from the sad love songs, to a Bob Seger song. I can even sing a ‘lil Bluegrass if you want me too. Plus, I didn’t want to do concerts of just slow songs. I didn’t want my fans to be sleeping half way through the show”. The ballad, “I Love the Way You Love Me,” was his very first number one record, and solidified his place as one the great balladeers “You know every singers dream is to have that signature song, and I really thought it would be that song. And then I found ‘I Swear,’ and it became an even bigger hit. I was like ok, that’s’ a signature song right there.” He grew up listening to a lot of Lionel Ritchie (master of timeless love songs). “I think for me, it was just natural to find songs like that, that touch me the same way his music touched me, and hopefully when I sing them they touch other people the same way. I’ve always treated my songs like a love affair. If i’m gonna spend the rest of my life with

a song, I want it to be the right one.” He takes a song that he is considering and puts it in his CD player in his pickup truck, and plays it on repeat, literally listening to it everyday for weeks. “I’m gonna be singing these same songs 25 years from now, and I wanna be able to enjoy singing this song. I want it to stick with my fans.” Formerly, he was a part of family band Montgomery Gentry, with hits like “Where I Come From,” and “Something to Be Proud Of,” he grew up with a very musical family. “We (my brother and I) went straight from high school to the honkeytonks, I got my record deal, and a few years later he got his, ever since then we’ve been doing our own thing,” and so when asked if he would consider a family collaboration in the future. He said most definitely, Yes. “We just haven’t been able to get through the red tape, we have been talking about at least doing a song or two together on a album... He (his brother) has had some bad luck these last 2 or 3 years – divorce, and of course, he just had a child pass away. We are just kinda waiting for the stars to line up directly, I guess.” I know I, along with their fans will definitely be looking forward to that. Asked how the music industry has changed

over the years, he says, “Nashville is really guilty of trying to manufacture a carbon copy. Like ok, wow that’s working, we need to find an artist just like that, instead of going down a more unique road. I tell people back when I was growing up, we had Johnny Cash, Willie, Wayne and Hank Jr. Everybody had there own style, and their own voice to the music and that’s kinda is what made us (country music) a little unique, where pop has always kind of been guilty of the carbon copy format. “When it comes to music, when you start force feeding someone the same thing. Beefsteak is great unless you have it every single day of your life. I’m really getting tired of steak. I think I wanna try some chicken. “ So, he goes on to tell a story of how the music industry was shocked by an unexpected change. “It was all about soundtracks, and that pop country sound. Warner Brothers decided to take a chance on this guy and put out this one song, “On the Other Hand,” Randy Travis and this album as traditional as it could be, stormed the scene and the song single handedly changed the whole format. It became so popular, I could just hear and see the labels going, ‘all these college kids are just eating it up,’ We didn’t think they’d like that? That’s traditional country!” Asked if there were any stories of the way his songs had affected people, he said he has been told that his songs have helped people who were contemplating committing suicide, families that had been separated, and that they’ve used the songs as foundations for important life events. One lady told him that she had used his song ‘I Swear’ for her last 3 weddings. He laughed and said, “You might wanna change songs, maybe find a different song, I’m not sure that one is bringing any luck to you.”

John Michael Montgomery has had an amazing career, with soul touching songs that make his fans feel the way he did when he would listen to fellow balladeers. I wish him, and his family great success as he continues touring, creating, and performing songs that will last a lifetime. I am personally looking forward to seeing his upcoming tour, a family collaboration, and watching him as he continues to shine. John Michael Montgomery, along with Darryl Worley and Jason Michael Carroll, will be coming to the Concert Courtyard at Ferg’s in St. Petersburg, FL on December 4th. Doors open at 6pm and showtime is scheduled for 7pm.

Full Access recently had the opportunity to interview Andrew McMahon from Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. Andrew is a singer, songwriter, pianist and a cancer survivor. We asked Andrew what was the reason that he changed the name from Jack’s Mannequin to Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and he responded, “There are a number of reasons, I think the project itself was born out of a need for a new adventure. It felt a little bit like being out in the middle of nowhere and trying to find my way back to the thing that makes me tick and makes me want to make music for a living. And that is where I think ‘The Wilderness’ came from.” If you had never seen Andrew McMahon and The Wilderness perform you are certainly missing a unique, interesting and amazing performance. Andrew told us that he is doing things on this tour unlike any of his other bands. He said, “We have a much more involved stage show and I brought on this amazing set designer who does art installations for a living, who has helped us build out what I would like to think of as another worldly stage. We have artificial turf spread out all over the stage and on the piano, and there’s a goldfish bowl with a mechanical fish swimming on the top of the piano. We have these beautiful balloon

displays and things like that. So, it’s a little bit more of a theater piece than my shows have been in the past, but it’s still the same. It’s high energy, you’ll see me beat the shit out of the piano pretty often and jump off the top of it. I think more than anything, it’s really a show where we try to connect as much as humanly possible to the audience and keep them as present as possible.” Day to day living is what influences Andrew to write music. He says from album to album that, “You will hear, generally, where I am in my life and what’s going on. That’s how I’ve always used songwriting, partially as a coping mechanism and on the other side, a way to answer questions or work through details of what life’s thrown at me.” Andrew says that he balances his touring schedule with his family pretty well and takes his wife and daughter with him as many places as he can. He says, “They’ve been out on the road with me for this whole run. Whenever we hop into a bus and I’m not flying every day to shows, they’re generally with me. It makes it a lot easier to balance because we all end up living in the same space and living the same life. I feel like the best balance for us is to stay close and that’s been going pretty well, in her first couple years on Earth here.”

This year basically marks the 10th anniversary of Andrew surviving cancer, we asked him to tell us about the Dear Jack Foundation. Andrew responded, “It was started on the heels of a lot of really generous fans who, when they found out I was sick, they were donating money to organizations that we had appointed as, In Lieu of flowers, you can donate to this organization and help make a difference. Over the years, we’ve really honed our focus into advocacy and initiatives that impact the lives of adolescents and young adults with cancer. So, people ages 15-39, who are either in treatment or transitioning into survivorship. That’s really what we do. We grant a couple scholarships every year for young survivors to go to college. We help fund an adventure camp called “First to Sense.” It’s an organization that basically does these incredible adventure camps for young adult survivors and patients, to help them build their confidence back and be surrounded by people in their peer group who are dealing with the same thing. This is a big struggle for adolescents and young adults, to find people who are going through what they are going through. And then now, we’re focusing on another workshop, called “Breathe Again.” Where we’re gonna help people transitioning into survivorship by teaching them yoga, meditation techniques and nutrition and wellness and other holistic wellness approaches to transitioning from their treatment, into survivorship.” Andrew produced a “Dear Jack” documentary where he carried around a little handheld video recorder and it had become this extended video diary. Andrew says, the reality of the documentary was that he had been filming his whole life in the studio with Jack’s, the birth of the Jack’s Mannequin process and project. “If you listen to ‘Everything in Transit,’ you hear all these little speaking parts and things like that. That’s all just stuff that was taken off my video camera. There was this natural

transition when I was diagnosed. I just was so used to having this experience with this video camera, that I talked to it daily and went through what was going on in the hospital room and what was going on with my health. And a couple of friends who make documentaries came to me, because they had seen the camera and they’d known that I had been documenting in my life in the time leading up to it. It was their feeling that if they could get these experiences edited together and show people what it really looks like, in a raw state, to be in that place, it would be helpful, I was like, ‘I think that sounds right.’ But in those early years of recovery, I was anything but excited to look at that footage again. But what we found, and what I think is the enduring legacy of that documentary that I’m really proud of, is that I talked to transplant nurses and oncologists and people who give this documentary to kids who are going through it at the time. And to other patients that are dealing with it and survivors. And it’s become an educational tool to show people, it’s not easy, but you can survive it. There is a green light at the end of this particular tunnel and to keep your head up. And that’s been, I think, what I’m most proud about with the documentary.” We asked Andrew about what his biggest accomplishment personally has been. He responded, “Surviving the cancer and realizing I had reached a point where I wasn’t in a really healthy mental state. Getting brave and figuring out what that was and getting the therapy. And the things that I needed to do to get my life back on track. I think that for me, is my greatest accomplishment. And the fact that it led to the birth of my daughter and the birth of this project.” Keep up with Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness on his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also join the Dear Jack Foundation on his website.

If you like to laugh-really laugh-then comedian Brian Regan is a “must-see” for you! Regan brings his style of comedy- a very sarcastic and a self-deprecating take on life and every day observations, to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, December 12th at 8 pm. Brian recently spent time with Full Access Magazine to talk about his career, some of his hilarious experiences and his “cleanapproach” at sharing his anecdotes with his audiences. “When I first started, I didn’t have any agenda. I was always mostly “clean” anyway, that’s just how I think comically. I think of everyday things. I didn’t want to be 95% anything, so I made a point to be 100% clean and see if I could get people to laugh without using certain words. I don’t think of it as clean, I just think of it as everyday stuff,” Regan explained. “My show is a little bit of everything. Its life experiences and it’s also just observations about things that really have nothing to do with me sometimes. Sometimes its things I have gone through or read about or whatever…” Regan, now 58, has been doing comedy since his college days in the early 1980’s. During his career, Brian has performed on the “late-night” circuit and has appeared on countless tv shows. His stand-up act has been featured on HBO and on Comedy

Central. In 2007, Regan signed a deal with Comedy Central to star in two one-hour specials, release them on DVD and to headline a theater tour, “Brian Regan in Concert: A Comedy Central Live Event,” which began later that year. He has appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman” 8 times. Brian talks about the highest accomplishment, in his mind, that can be achieved by a stand-up comedian, appearing on The Tonight Show and the emergence of social media on the world of comedy. “When you’re doing Letterman, when I did it, it was as a stand-up comedian. That’s the expectation in the air that you’re going to come out and be funny. I always hoped it would go well and the audience gets “hooked-in.” But its pressure to be funny, I seek it out, it’s a blast. You want to be in position to perform and for it to go well. There’s pressure, but it’s exciting,” Brian said. “The social media thing for me is weird because the world has changed so much since I first started doing stand-up. When I first started, the idea was to get on tv. “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson was still happening and it was every comedian’s goal to get on The Tonight Show. There really was no other huge goal, that was the thing. And if that happened it

was kind of like ‘being knighted’ like ‘now you are a successful comedian,’” Brian added. “Now, there are so many ways to get comedy to the people. People can just make a clip at a local bar that has a comedy night and post it on YouTube. There are so many venues, good and bad. I try to utilize it, but not as much as a lot of other people do. That’s how I feel about twitter. I might post a comment every now and then. If I have shows I might post that, but I don’t want to be one of those guys, ‘hey, remember me! Don’t forget about me! I’m still here!’ It’s like, ‘calm down buddy!’” Brian originally had the goal of being an accountant as his career choice while enrolled at Heidelberg College in Ohio in the late 70’s and early 80’s. After attending some stand-up shows in his native Florida, Brian eventually dropped out of college during his last semester prior to earning his degree to pursue a career in comedy. Brian recollects this time in his life. “I dropped out of college with about ten credit hours to go to try this “comedy thing.” Thinking if it didn’t work out, I could always come back and get my degree and do whatever. I was passionate about it and hoped it would work, and fortunately it seemed to work out for me. I think it was 1980 when I started out at a comedy club in Ft. Lauderdale and they had an open-mic night and I auditioned there and auditioned about five times before they ‘passed me.’ I knew I wanted to do comedy, but the only places I knew where there were comedy clubs were in New York and Los Angeles. I thought I was going to have to move to New York,” Brian explained. “Then I saw an ad in the Miami Herald for the grand opening to The Comic Strip Comedy Club in Ft. Lauderdale. It was unbelievable for me. Growing up in Miami, I could drive an hour and audition at this club. Then clubs started opening up all over; maybe in 1981 or 1982 it started exploding. I was fortunate that when I was good enough to

start going on the road, clubs were popping up all over the place.” “I certainly like the hours. When I was in college, a comedian performed in our school and his show started at 8:00 pm at night and I always had trouble waking up for my classes and I remember thinking, ‘wow, I could get up by 8:00 pm, so if I had a job that started by 8:00 pm, maybe I could function in this world.’ Making people laugh feels good and I like when the shows start, “Brian added. By combining some of his own life experiences with that in which he sees in everyday life, Brian puts a hilarious spin onto just about everything he comes across. One of the most-memorable catch-phrases from his act has been answering back to someone with the response, “you, too” when it definitely doesn’t apply. “I recently did that again. I was in an airport and the ticket-counter lady gave me my boarding passes and said, ‘have a nice flight.’ I said ‘you, too….oh wow, that was stupid,’ and she said people do it all the time. I told her, ‘no, you really don’t understand...if anybody shouldn’t be making this mistake, it’s me.’ She had no clue what I meant, so I just shook my head and walked away.” Be sure to check out the always spot-on and hilarious Brian Regan on December 12th at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater at 8pm. You can also keep up with Brian on his website, on Facebook and Twitter.

With such a short history behind them, PVRIS (pronounced Paris) has accomplished a lot. Led by Lyndsey “Lynn Gunn” Gunnulfsen (Vocals, Rhythm guitar, Keyboards), this four piece Electro-pop, Post-hardcore group formed in 2012 under the name Operation Guillotine and quickly changed their name to Paris. During their Sophomore year, a legal dispute forced them to replace the “A” with the letter “V” while keeping the pronunciation. Rounding out the line up are the other 2 founding members, Alex Babinski (Lead guitar, Keyboards) and Brian MacDonald (Bass guitar, Keyboards), along with touring member Justin Nace (Drums). Signing a recording contract with Rise/ Victory Records, they released their debut full-length disc called “White Noise” (Nov 2014) to the critics and fans liking while receiving rave reviews. The popularity and recognition continued into this year with them winning both the “Relentless Kerang!” award for Best International Newcomer (June 2015) and the Breakthrough Band award at the “Alternative Press Music Awards” (July 2015). Amidst their extensive touring, I was lucky enough to sit down with the stunning lead vocalist of PVRIS, Ms. Lyndsey Gunn, and talked about influences, touring, videos and more. Right out of the gate, we start to discuss who

13

had influenced her most to get her to where she is today. While most musicians will cite various musicians, she tells me that her brother is first and foremost. “He has always taken me under his wing and showed me how I should be, taught me manners and explained key points of life to me. My brother has been real important in my handling of being involved in the music world,” she says. With her tough touring schedule starting of with a stint on “Van’s Warped Tour” in 2013 after winning a contest, she has been fortunate to share the stage with acts like A Skylit Drive, Mayday Parade, Pierce the Veil, Sleeping with Sirens and Bring Me the Horizon. Upcoming tours will see PVRIS in support of Awolnation and Fallout Boy. With headliners like that, I wonder which act out there she would most like to tour with. Lyndsey says, “I would really freak if we had the chance to hit the road with Florence and the Machine. I'm not sure I would even feel worthy of touching the same stage as her though. She is incredible, just so talented.” In my interviews with musicians, the ups and downs of being on the road always find its way into the discussion. “I really like seeing new places all the time.” Lyndsey continues, “Being in a different place every day and getting to say that you have travelled the world. You find little sweet spots here and there that add up to little bits of home. I love all the different food. Now, on the other

hand, I feel like traveling is stifling when it comes to creativity. It's a weird contradiction because it is very inspiring and you get a lot of ideas. I feel really in the zone to do that, but there never seems to be a good environment to do so. It ends up being like blue balls for creativity.” Playing that many live shows within ten or more tours, over four years, you would have to think that every thing becomes a part of a routine, the norm. She tells me that even though they play a ton, she still gets nervous. “Some days are better than others. At times, I will get so anxious and just be like dreading it. It is so random and without reason, but there is always some form of nerves creeping in.” Sounds like she deals with daily stress just like anyone else has to. Stress not only plays a part on the mind, but also the body. Touring takes a lot out of you so it is important to be aware of your surroundings and how the daily activities take their toll. Even at a young age adjustments are necessary. “I have tried not to change as a person, so at this point nothing physical. The biggest thing that I have had to change is watching what I say. I have to monitor what comes out of my mouth a bit more and especially on social media. I have had to give less of a shit about the shit people say and their opinions. Get thicker skin for sure.” Being conscious of people's opinions is a given. Random is easier to let go but what about the opinions of your peers? Lyndsey says with a laugh, “I hope they say nice things. Our manager is our secret spy and he says they like us and think we are good kids. When it is all said and done I hope to be remembered as hard working, good people and that we were like machines.”

In the music industry today, it seems to be just as important to have a visual aid along with your music. Live shows, that's a given, but videos to accompany your songs seems to rank up there as well. “I love doing the videos,” Lyndsey says. “I try to incorporate them into the band as much as possible. Our pictures on social media are well thought out. I think the visual aspect should be just as artistic as the music. We have done a video for every song up to this point.” Do you have enough control over that aspect? “Oh, creative control is very important.” When you are in the middle of music as a career and you have to listen to it on a constant basis, I'm sure what you listen too is pretty selective. Out of curiosity, I wonder what the lead singer of PVRIS is listening to these days. She says, “Of course, I can't get enough of the new Florence and the Machine record. I just recently got into Depeche Mode. We were in Amsterdam not long ago and I was flipping through channels and there was this band on live. I loved all the electronics in their music, so Depeche Mode has a new really big fan.” It's not very often you get a band manager involved in the conversation, but while I had Lyndsey preoccupied with a copy of the magazine, I asked PVRIS manager, Matty Arsenault (Vocals for the group A Loss for Words) his opinion of Lyndsey and he simply said, “She is a monster and I mean that in the best possible way.” Thanks to the captivating Lyndsey and Manager Matty for the great conversation. I look forward to catching up with them soon as they continue to beat the pavement. Pvris will be performing at 97x’s Next Big Thing at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on December 5th.

When you are sitting around with your friends talking about putting together the perfect band, I'm not sure if the roster of Saint Asonia would even come to mind, our bad. Looking at this line up, I'm not sure you could put together a better supergroup. So when lead guitarist Mike Mushok, who was on hiatus with Staind, reached out to lead vocalists and rhythm guitarist Adam Gontier, formerly of Three Days Grace, about writing some material together, it was perfect timing as Adam was looking for a project. Next thing you know, Saint Asonia was born. Then came the rhythm section with Eye Empire Bassist Corey Lowery and former Finger Eleven drummer Rich Beddoe completing the line up. To find out more about the group, and about himself, I recently had the opportunity to chat with Mike Mushok as they were getting ready to set out on tour. With all the realignment happening in the music world these days it's almost comparable to a sports free agent market anymore. Chemistry is more important than anything when considering the formation of a project. The advantage of being a seasoned veteran in this industry is the relationships you form over the course of your career. Knowing whom you are comfortable with

ahead of time made it quite easy when putting together this supergroup. Mushok tells me, “I'm not sure about this supergroup label. We are just some friends who decided to get together and make a record. We shopped it to RCA and they liked what they heard, so at that point we decided to call it a band.” Usually when a band records their debut album, they start the support tour right around the time of the release so the hype is alive and kicking. Saint Asonia launched their self-titled debut album July 31st, 2015 (RCA Records; Producer: Johnny K), but unveiled themselves with a live performance at one of the largest festivals in the states, Rock On The Range, in mid May 2015. Coming out to the world in that kind of forum had to play on the nerves. “Not really, we were more excited than anything. We were well rehearsed at that point. We have all done this quite a bit. There have been times in my career when nerves were hitting and I wonder where the hell they were coming from, but not this time. We were very prepared,” Mike explained. With 17 number one singles out of 25 top ten hits between the four members, it speaks volumes on the ability to write. Surely after that kind of success, writing material for

a new project had to put the pressure on. He says, “Not really, I just put together what I think are cool riffs and then I handed it over to Adam and told him to just do what you do. I really don't think you can look at it in the sense of pressure. We just stayed true to who we are and wrote about the things we know. We know we are going to play those songs every night, so we just wrote to the best of our ability. We were really pleased with the end result.” Now that the album is complete and available for purchase, I'm sure Mushok loves it. With it being fresh, I'm curious if he has had the opportunity to develop a liking to any of the tracks. Mike says, “I love playing “Let Me Live My Life” and “Trying to Catch Up with the World.” I'm really proud of the entire album.” Setting up the direction, goals for a new project would seem to be an important part right from the beginning. “I wanted to go out on the road and not have to pay for it,” Mike says while laughing. “But that really is a tough thing in this day and age. It's hard to start a new band. It’s much different than ten years ago. In most cases you would be lucky to break even. We are off to a great start in my opinion.” Now that we have the lowdown on Saint Asonia, I want to find out about the man behind the lead guitar so I ask him about his musical influences. “My uncle who was a singer/songwriter started me out on guitar when I was very young, but what really pointed me in the right direction was Tony MacAlpine. Having him as my guitar teacher back in Springfield, Massachusetts and to play with him was nothing short of amazing.” Whether it's partying less, giving up bad habits, taking care of your health or one of many other things throughout a career, adjusting ones self is something that is a

given. “You are absolutely right. My biggest adjustment came about because of my family and that was learning to sacrifice my time with the family while being out on the road. I'm extremely fortunate to be able to make a living at something I love to do and they understand that this is how I support them, but it doesn't make it any easier.” Achieving success is measured in many different ways by each individual at different points of the journey through life. I asked Mushok what the definition of success is to him and this is what he said, “To me success is the ability to take care of my family. As the man of the house and a father, there is nothing more important than that.” Now we have reached the speed round of the conversation. What is the best part of touring? Mike says, “Being up on the stage and sharing our message.” Have you had that “Wow” moment? “Starting out and playing a festival in Tampa as the festival opener, but then coming back the following year and being greeted by thousands of people knowing who we were.” Do you enjoy being in the attention of the public eye? “When I'm up on stage, Yes. There is a time and a place for everything and the bathroom isn't one of those.” Who would you like to tour with? Most definitely The Deftones.” That brings us to the final question. What are you listening to nowadays? “Howard Stern. I really don't listen to a lot of music but that would also be the Deftones.” As it reached the end of our conversation, I really was wishing that we could continue but I had a show to review and he had family to tend to.

Julia Kent Asperities The Leaf Label 33332 by Terry Canter

Asperities are harsh qualities or conditions. I had to look that up, though the bleak, snowy landscapes evoked by Canadian cellist Julia Kent on her album of that name couldn’t convey the feeling any more clearly. Her combination of low string tones, subtle electronics, and scratchy field recordings feel like looking out the car window as you roll through the desolate roads in the middle of nowhere, on the way to something terrible, or having left something terrible, or both. The album weighs a cold, magnetic ton, sinking slowly into the subconscious and blossoming icy petals of tension, sadness, and anxious beauty. Kent herself has admitted that this album is a major leap in her ability to leave rough edges and push deep into uncomfortable emotions, rather than strive first and foremost for beauty. “I’ve finally reached a point where I can move beyond trying to create something that is primarily attractive to the ear,” she explained to The Out Door, “and focus instead on directly expressing emotion.” While Asperities certainly displays the immense tonal control and technical prowess of a classically trained musician, it carries an undeniably haunting emotional resonance. To say that the album works like the score to a psychological horror film would suggest shock tactics and dissonance, but Kent makes use of a slow-building, lingering dread without ever releasing tension. The album sets its alluring darkness in motion immediately with “Hellebore.” Much like Asperities, the song’s title should give the hyper-literate a hint as to its contents: a hellebore is a type of plant that produces beautiful flowers, but is also poisonous. In a bit of striking etymology, the words come 23

from roots meaning “food” and “to injure”; that which should be sustaining (the cello is such a soulful instrument) leads to pain and suffering. Things don’t exactly clear up by the album’s conclusion either. We end with “Tramontana”, the classical Italian word for a northern wind, also literally translating to “across the mountains.” In just four minutes, “Empty States” builds from growing grey cloud rumble to an all-out storm. Kent’s cello moves like windshield wipers, starting at a ginger back-and-forth sway before erupting into a methodically ominous and quick-stepping saw, the catastrophe now surrounding despite the attempt to fend it off. Things escalate most clearly on “Terrain,” where electronic percussion lends a menacing inescapability to what were once tense, contemplative proceedings. While Kent’s field recordings and found sounds used to feel like precise mechanisms — specifically the clinking glasses and scribbling pens on 2013’s home-driven Character, or Delay‘s evocations of airport noise, there was something almost pedantic about their theme and theory, too concretely positioned in the world. Asperities conveys a similar sense of place without ever explicitly detailing where it’s set or why, allowing the listener to envision their own wrinkles stretched over Kent’s richly drawn skeleton. That change makes a lot of sense for a classically trained musician carving out a niche as a solo artist after spending time with the likes of Rasputina and Antony and the Johnsons. With those acts, Kent’s skillful playing added a layer of entrancing beauty within an already dramatic, narrative-driven piece. Much like Colin Stetson, Matana Roberts, Sarah Neufeld, or Mats Gustafsson, Kent has unlocked the formula through which her already expressive musicianship can be understood on its own terms. She no longer needs Antony’s words or the audience’s associations tied to airport sounds; she has created a language all her own. Asperities uses that language to produce a haunting,

powerful world that won’t fade from memory for a long while. Jeff Lynne’s ELO Alone In The Universe Columbia Records gggdf by Terry Canter

For years, it seemed that Jeff Lynne and Electric Light Orchestra had gotten lost in the zeitgeist. When Tim Heidecker “took over” Rolling Stone, he reasoned that it’s odd that Tom Petty is worthy of a cover story and Lynne isn’t. ELO was once the biggest rock band on the planet, a legitimate heir to the Beatles’ pop rock throne in the ’70s, and yet they had become a band best known for their placement in advertisements and film soundtracks. It’s fitting, then, that 2015 sees Lynne’s return as a rebranded Electric Light Orchestra: Jeff Lynne’s ELO. The first record to bear those three letters since 2001’s Zoom, Alone in the Universe stays within the sounds we know of the group — everything here is definitely a pop song — while using technological advances to replace the bleeps and bloops of yesteryear. Gone are the artificial beeps of “Telephone” or the dense orchestra of “Livin’ Thing”; replacing them are layers of piano and subtle strings. Forget about the disco of “Shine a Little Love.” Instead, we get the retro reggae of “When the Night Comes.” Opening single “When I Was A Boy” sets the tone for the rest of the album. A pop ballad, it’s not remarkably catchy or unprecedented, but what it lacks in wit it makes up for in earnestness. Like Brian Wilson’s “Love & Mercy”, it’s just one chord progression with changing melody and evolving production. There’s a veteran’s coy smirk in his lyrics: He’s not just commenting on how good the times were when he was young, but how he still feels the same way. “Don’t want to work on the

milk or the bread/ Just want to play my guitar instead.” It verges on cheesy, but succeeds in capturing a man longing for his youth. While some of it falls short of past greatness, the core of the album shows Lynne hasn’t lost his mad genius after more than a decade of silence. Alone in the Universe is some of the best (and most consistent) work he’s created, but it’s still set in an established path, missing the big hit to push it over. When Lynne writes hooks, you get the feeling he could whip out Top 40 tunes faster than Max Martin if he wanted to — but he doesn’t. The entire second half of the album is a collection of songs you’ll have stuck in your head, wondering how they wormed their way in there. The closest thing to another ELO hit is probably “One Step at a Time”. It feels like a quick dance jam, but its echoing backing vocals give it a shiver of something more — and a descending modulation gives it the ELO trademark smirk. Even when it’s being simple, there’s a deeper musicianship going on than anywhere else. Cowbells set an optimistic chorus; a guitar solo turns the mood from upbeat to pessimistic; and the production goes minimal as Lynne’s voice grows desperate: “Talk to me/ With the sadness in your eyes/ Everything will soon be better/ You’ll soon begin to realize/ Come on and talk to me.” ELO once branded themselves the future of pop. Now 68, Lynne is back and sounding like the present without the gimmickry of forced narratives or the club drum sounds of 2015. The title track epitomizes this, coming across more like a modern Mott the Hoople doing a ballad than an elder trying to play catchup. It’s easy to get lost in the record’s 10 tracks over and over, if not intentionally then by accident. Lynne may be crying out after his failed return in 2001, wondering if he’s all alone out there, but if Alone in the Universe shows us anything, it’s that a good song is always a good song.
