ACROSS THE DESK
years of being only for heavy rock but in actuality we have covered many kinds of music and genres over the years. Itâ€™s interesting how our musical taste and experiences have expanded and exploded with technology. I am very thankful for the many radio By Robin Noll stations that are now available over the internet and thoroughly enjoy Pandora where I can listen to worship songs while I work. Happy New Year and all that jazz. Itâ€™s already January 4th so &KULVWLDQPXVLFKDVH[SORGHGWKURXJKRXWWKHZRUOGFRPSDUHGWR if youâ€™re like me youâ€™re ready to be done with the holidays and what it was when I was growing up. I enjoy the old hymns still pressing on to the year ahead. Not that I had a bad holiday season but some of the new music is so anointed. Itâ€™s great in having the itâ€™s just hard to gather information. Keeping focused is always a choices we have today. Music has such an impact on our everyday struggle for me working from my home but even harder during lives. We are addicted to sound, being silent is becoming a lost holidays. We were blessed with great family time even went to art. That being said, musicians have a multitude of ways to let the see Star Wars, there was 12 of us and it was pretty cool.

So appreciate them. Just a bit of motherly advice after 34 years in the business world.

Just saying, take it or leave it. January is a laid back month but Tubbyâ€™s, The Eagle Hotel and Gulliftyâ€™s have schedules that offer you entertainment all month long. The Eagle Hotel is gearing up for 105.7 X-treme Beer Pong tournament. Stopped in there last year and they were having a

blast competing against each other. Plus Mike is always raising money to help someone, thatâ€™s just Mike. Be sure to thank Mike for his military service also as he is a Veteran. Tubby is providing entertainment all month long without charging a cover for any of their acts. Great food, great times at Tubbyâ€™s and their prices are very reasonable so you always have a little â€œcha chingâ€? left in your pocket. We did get some sad news over the holidays and that is Ike Eisenhower owner and manager of Gulliftyâ€™s for years has passed on to his next journey. His kids have been running Gulliftyâ€™s but itâ€™s been sad. I know that he has a great relationship with Jesus so we know he is about in his 30â€™s right now enjoying some awesome music and being reunited with his beloved Keith but it doesnâ€™t make it any easier for his family as they deal with the loss of another of their precious family member. The great thing about death is that it makes one aware of just how precious it is to spend time with your family, hugging and loving on one another, WKXVZK\ZKHQLWFRPHVWR&KULVWPDVFRQFHUWVDQGVXFK,KDYH to lay aside my work and attend those family events, no one is guaranteed tomorrow.

Pennsylvania Musician Magazine
Out & About continued.... but I really wish we could convince some more of the original clubs, coffee shops, wineries, etc to advertise their shows in our magazine. Plus I wish these bands that work so hard at creating EPs, CDs, etc. would use our magazine to promote as well. For only $30 you can get a business card sized ad in the magazine. A Full Page is only $375! And there are plenty of prices in between to meet every budget. My Grammy always used to say, “It takes tickets, to make tickets!” and she was one smart lady! Hit me up and lets talk about how we can help you get your band and/or business off to a great start in 2016. My next adventure started early with a trip to Perry County to help my Mom, Robin Noll, celebrate her birthday! Before I went up to take her out for dinner I went to my friend Michelle’s house, and we did a full Extreme Makeover on ME! It involved curling irons, make-up, and even jewelry! When we got up to Mom she hardly even recognized me. It was quite priceless, I wish I would’ve taken a video! Ha! We went out to Mastrachio’s in Newport for some delicious dinner and then it was time to take the birthday girl home and get out there in my speFLDORXWÀW:KHQ\RX·UHDOOGUHVVHGXSZKHUHHOVHZRXOG\RXJR besides the Double K. My good friends Steel were on stage and it was hilarious to see how many people had to do a double take to even tell who I was. I had plans to go see some other bands, but once I heard Steel playing and being with all my friends I couldn’t leave. It was a great night of music and shenanigans once again! Steel is taking the month of January off but will be rockin’ next in February so get out there and support these guys! Trust me you won’t be disappointed! The night after Christmas I found out Bob and Vicki were heading to the Eagle Hotel for a night out on the town and I decided to join them again. The Special Darrell Adams project was on the stage. It was advertised as a night of Asking Andy or Deezle Church, but I think it was more Lindsey Erin without Lindsey herself, so I’m not sure what it was, but regardless it was the day after Christmas and there was live music so we were happy. The Eagle Hotel in Fredericksburg is such an awesome place to hang out. They have great staff that know how to mix some great drinks. When I got there Bob and Vicki were eating some wings, and even tho I just got done eating a huge dinner I was tempted to eat again, but somehow resisted! If you want to go out for a delicious dinner and support a venue that also supports live music get out there and support the Eagle Hotel. Mike is located right off Route 78 with plenty of free parking! Check out the Eagle Hotel ad in this issue and plan your next night out on the town! Last but certainly not least I decided to end my weekend of Christmas Fun head banging with Penntera at Tubby’s! I’m so glad I made the trip up there for HD’s last show. It’s hard to believe HD won’t be on the stage with Penntera anymore, but they already have a replacement, who even played a few songs at Tubby’s, his name is Pat Bowser. I haven’t seen him play before, but he did an amazing job stepping up to the plate. I’m so glad that this isn’t the end for Penntera. It’s a blast rockin’ out with these guys. It was a bittersweet night for sure, but we wish HD all the best at whatever his next endeavors may be. Penntera’s next show at Tubby’s will be on Good Friday, March 25th. They will not only be playing with their new guitar player, Pat Bowser, but they will also be bringing two new bands for Tubby’s as well, Iron Maiden tribute, “Maiden Kaos,” from Virginia, along with Xtrophy from Waynesboro. One thing for sure is the night will be epic! Mark your calendars now! Check out their full schedule in this issue and get out there and rock with Penntera!! Well that’s all for this month. I’m so ready for 2016!! I’m ready for a year of new friendships, new adventures, and spending even more time with the friends I already have and the family I love!

WHAT DO YOU NEED?
Or Do You Remember the Boy Scout Motto? Be Prepared! Preparation means a lot. Whenever you have a show, event or just a gig you better be ready to do it. That means all aspects of it â€” load-in, setup, show and load-out. Sometimes you need to do an advance site survey; or actually YLVLWWKHYHQXHRUVLWHWRGHWHUPLQHVSHFLĂ€FDOO\ZKDWLVQHHGHGÂ˛ Ă€JXUHRXWZKDW\RXQHHGWRXVHDQGZKDW\RXQHHGWRGRZKLOH youâ€™re there, where the good restaurants are, etc. Doing a site survey and advance production meetings can be fun, but most of the time it turns out to be a quick visit, and then you are on your way to another venue. However, if the stars align right, you actually have time to visit friends; eat, drink & be merry! Bringing in or arranging certain materials and/or gear to be at a site can make the difference between a â€˜well-oiled machineâ€™ or a â€˜clusterfâ€Śâ€™ I recently did a small outdoor event. One of the things that I thought to bring was some plywood sheets to make a roadway to roll the equipment from the truck to the stage area. That turned out to be a good thing as the ground was soft and the cases just got stuck in the mud. Too bad we didnâ€™t have more plywood sheets available though. We used the sheets we had but had to keep moving them from behind the gear to the front to keep the stuff rolling instead of building one long road. It was still easier than not having any at all! One of the great joys of doing outdoor gigs is coping with mud. Some time ago we were doing a tour of outdoor venues; festivals
DQGVWDGLXPV0DQ\IHVWLYDOVDUHLQDĂ€HOGVRPHZKHUH2QHRI WKHVHĂ€HOGVZDVLQ)UDQFH,QVWHDGRIEXLOGLQJDGHFHQWURDGWKH locals decided just to get big construction earth movers and use them to drag our semi-trucks of equipment in and out of the site. Needless to say the truckers were not happy about their rigs getting pulled through a bunch of mud that was full of deep ruts from the vehicles. It was a time consuming mess! A few days later we were in Germany and the locals there used PHWDOWLOHVZKLFKĂ€WWRJHWKHUWRIRUPURDGZD\V7KHWUXFNVKDGQR trouble at all getting in and out. Being prepared and having the right stuff makes your life much easier and usually results in a better show. Now for this time of year you need snow shovels and tire chains and heavy coatsâ€Śâ€Śâ€Ś.
:::'Â˛:KDW:RXOG:ROĂ€H'R" :HRQO\GRVPDOOVKRZVÂŤÂŤ In reality there is very little difference between a â€˜largeâ€™ show and a â€˜smallâ€™ one. A few more truckloads of gear, a few more stagehands, musicians, technicians, caterers and so on are all. What is the same, is the desire (or lack of) of the musicians and staff to present a great show. The audience should leave wanting more after having a good time. That usually means that the band and techs know the songs (or how to fake it) and how to connect with the audience. As well as having a good sound balance and lighting support. No matter what size room or venue, you â€˜simplyâ€™ adjust your volumes and the amount of gear and have a good time. As you know that sounds easier than it is but that is why you have talented people working with you.

Introducing Husband/Wife Christian Contemporary Duoâ€Ś. â€œRandy & Jade Fisherâ€? By Robin Noll Randy Fisher is a Multi-Award-Winning Christian Singer/ Songwriter from Pennsylvania; most recently being awarded the 2015 Christian/Gospel Artist of the Year by the InternationalMusic & Entertainment Association. Randy began playing the guitar at the age of eight, and songwriting in his teens. He has served in several ministry roles in various churches over the years, positions including: Worship Director, Youth Director, and Teen Bible Quiz Head Coach. It was while he was rehearsing for worship at the River of Life church in Duncannon with his buddy Jake Compton that he said to Jake after rehearsal, while looking at the church doors, â€œDid you ever look at those doors and think that the next person that comes through those doors could be the person you will spend the rest of your life with?â€? At that moment Jade entered into church with her family. Randy was immediately attracted to her but it took him six weeks to get the courage to ask her parents if he could date her. At that time they both were singing at church and one of Randyâ€™s criteria for a mate was that she had to sing and be on key, JadeĂ€WWKDWFULWHULDDQGWKDQVRPH*RGÂˇVSHUIHFW match for both of them. They started dating in December 2002 and were married in July of 2005 with three children to follow.

This yearâ€™s edition of Patched Together was the biggest and best yet, with the combination of music, childrenâ€™s activities, multiple basket and other prize giveaways providing an unforgettable day, while raising funds for the Healing Patchâ€™s mission of providing counseling and mentoring services to youth who have been impacted by the loss of family and loved ones. I also got to see Jim Donovanâ€™s Sun King Warriors as they heralded the debut of their self-titled album during a special concert event on Thanksgiving weekend at the U.S. Hotel in HolliGD\VEXUJ)DQVIURPIDUDQGZLGHĂ€OOHGWKHURRPWRFHOHEUDWHZLWK the Sun King Warriors. Matt Otis & the Sound launched the evening. Joined by Sun King Warriors bassist Kent Tonkin and percussionist Harry Pepper, group namesake Matt on vocals and guitar, Johnny Bayush on violin and guitar, drummer Charlie McClanahan offered a fun, upbeat set that spotlighted original songs. Matt and the Sound did songs from their CD such as â€œKarma,â€? â€œDown, Down, Down,â€? â€œDisease,â€? â€œMakeâ€? and â€œThe Most Important Thing,â€? along with older and newer tunes, plus an interesting take on Patti Smithâ€™s â€œBecause the Nightâ€? with a Danzig â€œMotherâ€? midsection. With Kevin McDonald playing guitar this night, Jim Donovan and the Sun King Warriors again generated ecstatic vibes as they introduced songs from their CD. Out of a boisterous drum and percussion introduction, the Sun King Warriors quickly triggered passionate dancing and grooving in front of the stage as they launched into a mixture of songs from the album and select cover material. The group did such numbers from the CD as â€œIâ€™m Doing Fine,â€? â€œRight in Front of Me,â€? the combination of the percussion prelude â€œMarch of the Sun King Warriorsâ€? into â€œYou Got to Believe It,â€? the gentle â€œCanâ€™t Stop Fallingâ€? and more. The group improvised a groove that set the foundation for percussionist Harry Pepperâ€™s spoken-word exploration about life and its rhythm, and they also offered their renditions of favorites from The Clash, Ramones, 9LROHQW)HPPHV-RKQQ\&DVKDQGWKH'RRUV)RUWKHLUVHWĂ€QDle, the group reprised two Rusted Root numbers, â€œBack to the Earthâ€? and â€“ according to Jim, â€œthe song that paid for my houseâ€? â€“ â€œSend Me on My Way.â€? Jim Donovanâ€™s Sun King Warriors recently completed a crowd-funding campaign to launch the new
CD internationally; they will celebrate that release with a CD-release event at Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh on March 12. During my high school years, several years before I got hooked on local music, one of the band names I would frequently hear mentioned in the hallways of Altoona Area High School was Piranha, which enjoyed a popular initial run on local stages from 1975 to 1979. The original lineup of Piranha marked their 40th anniversary on Thanksgiving weekend with a special reunion show at 30 SomethingWKHVKRZDOVRVHUYHGDVDEHQHĂ€WIRUSt. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital. The St. Judeâ€™s theme was set early as show emcee Scott Cessna introduced young St. Judeâ€™s cancer patient Drew Storm, who drew jubilant applause when he announced that he is now cancer free! With guest Rich Piccerillo helping out on lead guitar, The Backyard Rockers opened up the evening with acoustic classic rock favorites, with Richâ€™s lead solos highlighting renditions of Neil Youngâ€™s â€œDown By the Riverâ€? and â€œRockinâ€™ in the Free World,â€? Lynyrd Skynyrdâ€™s â€œSimple Manâ€? and more. No Angels then built up to the main event with their strong set of classic and modern rock favorites.

Then Piranha â€“ singer Lane Williamson, guitarist John McKelvey, bassist Phil Brulia, drummer Barry Jacobs, plus special guest guitarist Rogan Allen â€“ proceeded to rock the house with a mixture of hard-rocking classics and original songs. PiranhaLQVWDQWO\KDGGDQFHUVLQIURQWRIWKHVWDJHDVWKH\Ă€UHG through the Aerosmith double-shot of â€œWalkinâ€™ the Dogâ€? into â€œLord of the Thighs,â€? and proceeded with numbers from Van Halen, David Bowie, Robin Trower, Bad Company, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent and more. These guys sounded solid, and beamed with enthusiasm to be rocking a stage again. During the middle of the set, Lane introduced two original songs the group created and performed back in the day, â€œHustlerâ€? and â€œHot Lover.â€? For WKHĂ€QDOHPiranha poured heart and soul into a version of UFOâ€™s â€œRock Bottomâ€? to end the night. Felix & the Hurricanes seized the opportunity of a Pittsburgh Steeler-less Sunday in November to celebrate local blues, organizing the inaugural Bye Week Blues event at the groupâ€™s weekly
Sunday night performance venue, Altoonaâ€™s Black & Gold Tavern. This event shined the spotlight on blues variations from three different bands â€“ the host band, or course, along with the Jukehouse Bombers and Miss Melanie & the Valley Rats. In progUHVV DV , Ă€UVW DUULYHG WKH Jukehouse Bombers delivered their hard-edged brand of electric blues, mixing original songs with select numbers from Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Rogers, Anders Osborne and the Allman Brothers. Highlights included the throaty howl of group ringleader/guitarist Jimmy Roach, witnessing the triple-guitar army dynamic of Jimmy, Joe Roach and Andrew Kirsch, and Joe demonstrating his slide talents on a cigar box guitar â€“ all backed by the beefy rhythms of bassist Troy Laney and drummer Dave Vernot. Some of their highlights included new original songs like â€œAbsolute Successâ€? and â€œEvil Iâ€™ve Done,â€? and their powerful read of the Allman Brothers/Molly Hatchetâ€™s â€œDreams Iâ€™ll Never See.â€? Miss Melanie & the Valley Rats then took the music in a more soulful direction. Even though battling cold issues this day, namesake â€œMiss Melanieâ€? Morrison Zeigler still belted out premium voice, baring heart and soul on the groupâ€™s original songs and tunes from James Brown, O.B. Wright, Ray Charles, Louis Jordan and more. Mark Ross crafted masterful guitar leads, Rev. James Harton generated tasteful organ nuances, and drummer Jordan Thompson provided just the perfect rhythmic touch to nudge each song forward. Highlights included guest Pat McGinnis sitting in on bass for numbers such as Rosco Gordonâ€™s â€œJust a Little Bit,â€? local â€œTambourine Ladyâ€? Priscilla Gati tapping along on Louis Jordanâ€™s â€œAinâ€™t Nobody Here But Us Chickens,â€? and Miss Melanie celebrating Sunday with her set-closing rendition of â€œAmazing Grace.â€?

(dedicated in memory of Felixâ€™s parents), â€œSoulshine,â€? â€œDreams Iâ€™ll Never Seeâ€? and â€œBack Where It All Begins.â€?

Lee, plus giveaways of a blues-themed guitar lamp and a bicycle donated by Tony Mollick. Based on the success of this day, Felix indicated he would like to make Bye Week Blues an annual event. Classic progressive rock is not a musical style commonly encountered on local music stages in these parts, so when an area band tackles the detailed epics of this genre, it becomes a noteworthy event. Enter Skye 2.0’s performance at Pellegrine’s in Altoona last month, which not only boldly took on some of rock’s most challenging compositions, but also drew a good crowd of onlookers in the process! The current mach incarnation of a band whose original tenure happened on area stages in the early 1970s, Skye 2.0 – featuring founding Skye members Ken Civils on keys and Bill Hocherl on drums, singer/keyboardist Adam DiFlaviano, guitarist Don Osborn and bassist Kris Civils – pulled off some numbers I never imagined I would ever hear a local band cover! Opening with Deep Purple’s “Highway Star,” Skye 2.0 dug into the catalogs of Yes, Boston, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Styx, Kansas, King Crimson, Europe, Rush and Flash. Highlights were numerous, including Yes epics such as “Roundabout,” “I’ve Seen All Good People/Your Move,” “Yours Is No Disgrace” and more – including a unique fusion of the Simon & Garfunkel and Yes versions of “America!” There was also Ken Civils’ “Hallelujah” chorus (from Handel’s “Messiah”) keyboard prelude into a passage from “Jesus Christ Superstar,” King Crimson’s “Court of the Crimson King,” Uriah Heep’s “Easy Livin’” and “Look at Yourself,” the full-length edition of Flash’ 1972 claim to fame “Small Beginnings” and more. A nice-sized audience of fans – including a number of area musicians – was on hand to witness and support this spectacle. Skye 2.0 will bring their unique spectrum of proJUHVVLYHURFNÁDYRUVWR(EHQVEXUJ·VCastle Pub on January 23. I also saw Don Osborn and Bill Hocherl with their acoustic project, Triple Threat, last month at Pellegrine’s. Don on guitar and vocals, Bill on drums and bassist/singer Bill Hunter
presented a quality mixture of acoustic classic rock and blues, doing tasty renditions of numbers by the Zombies, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bill Withers, Albert Collins, the Allman Brothers and more. Highlights included Triple Threat’s takes on Bobbie Gentry’s “Ode to Billie Joe,” their fusing of B.B. King & Eric Clapton’s “Help the Poor” with Peter Green’s “Black Magic Woman,” and the night-ending version of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Cost of Freedom/Ohio.” Triple Threat can usually be seen performing during the second Thursday of the month at Pellegrine’s. ,FDXJKWP\ÀUVWRIÀFLDOORRNDWQHZDUHDURFNHUVBone Jacked early last month at D’Ottavio’s Gran Sasso in Hollidaysburg. Bone Jacked battled adversity this night, as lead singer Mat Wirtner was mostly sidelined with a bout of laryngitis, and could only contribute some harmonica accompaniment early in the show. Guitarist Jeremy Gena and bassist Mike Gherrity shared the vocal workload instead with Terry Wilt on drums. Both did a respectable job singing classic rock numbers by Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Georgia Satellites, Grand Funk Railroad, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Healey Band, Allman Brothers, Cream and more. A former solo performer, Jeremy pulled some songs from his own library, fronting Bone Jacked on versions of Prince’s “Purple Rain,” Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On,” and leading the group into an impromptu version of “Hoochie Coochie Man.” The Gran Sasso audience liked it enough to demand an encore at night’s end, which the group answered with a strong version of the Black Crowes’ “She Talks

Matt Otis & the Sound By Jim Price to Angels.” Watch for the full-strength Bone Jacked roster on various area stages in 2016. Harrisburg area foursome JJ Rupp has recently been playing every Sunday night at State College’s Phyrst. During one such show early last month, the group – namesake JJ Rupp on lead vocals and guitar, guitarist/singer Richie Hume, bassist James McFadden and drummer Tony Kobel – performed an energetic blend of rock, pop and country favorites. They jumped between Big & Rich and Nirvana, Incubus and Florida Georgia Line, and even pulled out tunes from Hall & Oates and Cyndi Lauper. They had the large crowd of mostly ecstatic Penn State students standing and dancing atop tables and benches and partying down. JJ Rupp performs shows throughout the Northeast; they return to the Phyrst on January 10. $QRWKHUEDQG,VDZIRUWKHÀUVWWLPHODVWPRQWKZDV6RPHUset-based trio Private I, who capped a triple-bill at McGarvey’s.

I enjoy how this Cambria County-based group’s unique sound is evolving; as lead singer/guitarist Lloyd Rummell, guitarist Bill Stiles, bassist Joe Stiles, drummer Brandon Adams and electronics/sample man Anthony Dostal merge elements of hard rock, surf rock, gothic, punk and metal into their collective musical identity.

STRAIT & MILLER â€œSTEAL MY SOULâ€? (no label) Chris Strait and Dylan Miller began their songwriting and performing collaboration in 2011 after graduating high school. After issuing the six-song EP â€œPalm of Her Handâ€? in 2013, the Huntingdon-based duo has followed with WKHLUĂ€UVWIXOOOHQJWK&'â€œSteal My Soulâ€?. This CD introduces listeners to the pairâ€™s slant on acoustic roots-based music and Americana, mixing elements of folk, bluegrass, country and delta blues over eight original songs and two remakes. Both musicians sing, with Strait handling guitar and harmonica duties and Miller wielding mandolin and resonator guitar. A number of noteworthy musical guests help Strait & Miller bring the songs to life, including Chris Lawson (Nobodyâ€™s Heroes) on stand-up bass, Daniel CollinsRQĂ€GGOHBen Souders and Bobby Baronner on banjo, Johnny Stevens (Mama Corn) on dobro and harmonica, and more. The original songs are simple, catchy and to the point, featuring relatable words about life and its simplicities. The pair prefer the tranquility of small town life to the temptations of the big city on the folksy disc-opener â€œAlcohol and Pills,â€? and favor simple pleasures over the rat race on â€œJust Canâ€™t Afford a Peace of Mind.â€? The title track â€œSteal My Soulâ€? likewise prefers the simplicity of homegrown music to the major music industryâ€™s manufactured sounds, with guest Junior Tutwiler adding some electric slide guitar punctuation. Love triumphs over adversity on the bluegrassy â€œAway From You,â€? and love is a lifelong sentence on the uptempo â€œThe Very Day You Die.â€? Strait & Miller honor their EOXHV LQĂ XHQFHV ZLWK DQ XSGDWH RI *XV &DQQRQÂˇV EDQMR blues number â€œGoing to Germanyâ€? and the disc-ending delta blues rendering of Robert Johnsonâ€™s â€œLove in Vain.â€? The vocals are spirited and enthusiastic, and the instrumental performances sound smooth and vibrant, suggesting the joy of a back porch jam session. Produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Tom Bone Edmonds, the sound is clean and full, and enables Strait & MillerDQGWKHLUDVVHPEOHGFDVWWRĂ€OOWKHVSDFHZLWKDEURDG deep presence. â€œSteal My Soulâ€? is a quality effort, and should further establish Strait & Miller as a rising force in roots music and Americana.

JACK PYERS â€œNO ROAD HOMEâ€? (Sticky Records) Jack Pyers is best known as the bassist for Dirty Looks during their peak years with Atlantic Records, and prior to that, as the guitar player for northeastern PA-based hard rock juggernaut Harpo. With both of those projects now in the continued on page 20 ..
Pennsylvania Musician Magazine
PA Reviews continued.... rearview mirror, Pyers has embraced acoustic music and folk, DQGKDVLVVXHGKLVĂ€UVWDFRXVWLFVRORDOEXPâ€œNo Road Homeâ€?. The album title is symbolic in that Pyers cannot return to either of his previous band situations, so he is forging a new focus and direction over the discâ€™s nine tracks. Rock is still a component of Pyersâ€™ musical persona, evidenced by the aggressive style of the restless disc-opener â€œItâ€™s Alrightâ€? and the punk-toned â€œAll Night Long.â€? But Pyers explores other acoustic terrain as well; painting a sagebrush mystique on â€œCowboy Song,â€? crafting a wistful mood with â€œIn This Dream,â€? delivering an escalating melody and arrangement with â€œStay,â€? and mixing several guitar rhythms and tempos on the energetic â€œDo You Know.â€? He looks for release from torment on the somber â€œHold My Head,â€? and ponders loneliness on the thoughtful â€œStill Be Mine.â€? His experimentation with varying acoustic guitar styles keeps the disc interesting, and his restrained singing style supports the prevalent song themes of loneliness and longing. Produced and mostly recorded by Bret Alexander at Saturation Acres Studio, the disc sounds clean, basic and stripped down, with Pyersâ€™ voice and guitarwork doing the talking. â€œNo Road Homeâ€? represents a new beginning for Jack Pyers DV KH H[SORUHV QHZ DFRXVWLF IURQWLHUV DQG Ă€QGV KLV QHZ musical voice.

SANE ADVICE By John Kerecz
Where has the year gone? Seriously, each passing year seems to go more quickly than the last. The days whiz by, the months pass, then another year completed done, a year, a trial, an adventure lived out, and with each comes the awareness of how little we really know in this life. Our job, age, where we live, and how much money we make, ZLOOQHYHUGHĂ€QHZKRZHUHDOO\DUH$VWKH\HDUVJRE\,UHDOL]H more clearly that life is more rewarding when, instead of getting all we can out of it, we give all we can through it. Be forever thankful for family and friends who encourage, who strengthen, and who believe the best for you in the years ahead. Few of us will ever be rich in the worldâ€™s standards, yet we might be wealthy in the things that matter most in this life, many of which money could never buy. So, a new year begins. Be ready to be living it out; choose to make the most of the gift of every day.
