obollc6srxbngudzho7qbi1hwv39jqmnToday, I was introduced due to a thriving, new, non-local artist named Matthew Schultz who has a cool, new single out called “Right Heart Wrong Time (Part II)” featuring a beautiful and talented young woman named Alessia Guarnera on vocals.   According to Matthew, he thought Alessia’s “beautiful, amazing, earthy, raw vocals” would be a perfect match to his low baritone, and boy was he right!  (more…)

Junior Turner’s newest release, “Natural & Nice” is a rockin mix of big band dance groove with a touch of blues and refreshingly sweet lyrics!  This song has a cool horn intro that’s sure to catch you’re attention, but it’s the lyrics which are the heart of the song; a sweet, and slightly salty, story about how outward beauty can be totally overrated!

I’m really, truly excited to tell you about this cool project, called Chords of Truth, Remixed!

This project really is awesome, so first, I gotta give you the low-down on what its all about!
CHORDS OF TRUTH:
A couple of years ago, American acoustic folk singer/ songwriter, Jason Garriotte, released his first EP, a 7-track album titled, “Reflections of Reality”, under the project name Chords of Truth!     “Reflections of Reality” had amazing success, and Jason began touring and performing countless shows all over the country.

CHORDS OF TRUTH, REMIXED:  Amazingly, along the way, he found that many artists in the electronic music community connected with his music and his lyrics, so he decided to try his hand at some musical collaborations and see if his songs and lyrics would translate well in new formats.   To get these collaborations going, he held a couple of contests where he made his acoustic songs and lyrics available for remixing and had artists from all over the world submit their versions of his songs!  He received an amazing number of submissions reaching from across a multitude of genres, and the ultimate release of a 26-track, double album, titled “Reflections of Reality, Remixed” has exploded under the cross-genre category of “folktronica“.

The result of the Chords of Truth, Remixed project is an idea that has now encompassed 14 different producers, a double album, 8 additional remix EP’s, and a total of 57 remixes/interpretations of the original 7-track album!

The “Reflections of Reality, Remixed” double album was released on March 12, 2013, & you can support this project by purchasing a CD on Amazon, iTunes, or at CDBaby for as little as $9.99!  Jason & the other contributing artists have also graciously made this whole project available for FREE for those who want a copy & would share it with others!  Download any of the songs or albums for free,  HERE!

VENUMB DUBSTEP REMIX:

One of the 8 additional remix EP’s that evolved from this project was a killer dubstep remix by Dayton artist, Joshua Gleissner, aka Venumb!   According to Garriotte, “Venumb has cleverly weaved his sounds, beats, and rhythms into the classic acoustic folk style recordings” of the original Chords of Truth tracks creating something “Powerful and Different!”   If you’re a fan of Chemical Brothers, Knife Party and Massive Attack, you’ll be an instant fan of Venumb!  Two of Venumb’s tracks, “Tune Your Mind” and “Pop or Soda” were finalists in the remix contest and made it to the final double-album release!

curseofcassandra3Dayton’s got a hot new band on the scene! Check out Curse of Cassandra!

They just formed earlier this year, but their dark, ambient, electronic rock took Music Connection’s June Featured Band/Artist contest by STORM, garnering over 500 votes before the end!  Ending up in 2nd place, they gave our June winner, Gathering Mercury, a solid run for their money and tromped all the other competition!

curseofcassandraI sat down and checked out their page this afternoon and found some great things waiting for me!   Their song, “The One I Need”, is exactly as advertised. It’s a dark, passionate song with strong dance beats and haunting vocals that you should definitely check out!  They’ve also got some sweet photos and some great shows coming up this month in Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus!   Check them out on June 21st at Jimmie’s Ladder 11 in Dayton!  I can’t wait to see and hear more from this project!
