Couch Kid News Segment With The Soul Of John Black & Sonny Rock
Tonight we had two Couch Kid News Segments to open the show.
First The Soul Of John Black stopped by to talk about the two awards his song, Higher Power won during the recent Independent Music Awards – first taking the industry judge’s award for R&B song and then The Vox Pop (fan) award for R&B Song and to thank his fans for their votes. He also discussed getting ready to head back into the studio and start on his new album, which he said would be out sometime in 2015. Then Sonny Rock popped on to talk about his Radio Show Local Licks on WRIP-FM and http://www.wrip979.com. His show airs on Tuesday evenings from 6pm-9-m Eastern and Sonny plays all kinds of cool music…check him out and find your new best favorite band or artist!
DANNY BRYANT & JON TROUT
Danny Bryant is Walter Trout’s protégé and while Walter is recovering from his successful Liver Transplant, Danny and Walter’s son Jon Trout have been out with the Walter Trout Band bringing the music to the fans. The tour ends the end of this week, so we had a chance to recap the last four weeks with the duo and also check in on Walter’s health. Keyboardist Sammy Avila even chimed in for a bit! During our time together we played two of Danny’s songs (one with Walter) and the title cut from Walter’s new album “The Blues Came Callin'”
Colleen Rennison is 25 years old, but has the vocal abilities and stage presence of someone who has been at it much longer. Her debut solo album is entitled See The Sky About To Rain and it was produced, recorded and mixed by Couch Kid Steve Dawson, who also plays guitars on all the tracks. Colleen joined me to talk about her musical career as well as her career as an actor and director. A well-rounded young woman, it was a pleasure speaking with her and sharing her music.
DAVID MICHAEL MILLER
David Michael Miller began singing, like many, in church. The Buffalo, NY native is also the front man for Dive House Union who made the semi-finals in the IBC this year. David has released his solo album, Poisons Sipped and we talked about his career, how the music industry disappointed him back while he was in college and where he is headed now.
Anni Piper has visited twice. The first time, back in 2011 and then she joined me in April of 2013, after her album with Nicole Hart was released. You know THAT album…Split Second, the one conceived after the President of Blues Leaf Records heard them both on the show in 2011 and decided to put them together and then only alluded to it only in the cover notes!!!!! Anni is finishing up a tour of the US and called in to talk about her time here and we asked if it meant if she would be moving here full time… what was her answer?
