ABOUT MARK RADCLIFFE

Mark Radcliffe - the sea before us - Blow it all Away!In a world of teenage American Idol winners, Mark Radcliffe is a bit of a late-bloomer.  Maybe that’s what the music world could use a little more of.

As a former English teacher on the coast of Maine, Mark Radcliffe spent years working with words in a classroom before ever fashioning them into songs. And these years spent in other pursuits provided life experiences that would pay off in time, translating to introspective songs of love, loss and the search for self that fans everywhere could embrace as personal anthems.

Radcliffe was raised on an eclectic diet of U2, Marc Cohn, the Indigo Girls, Crowded House, and Martin Sexton, developed a deep affection for melody and harmony.

Radcliffe knew his full musical message would be best expressed using layered and atmospheric sound, so he joined up with LA producing team of Rob Giles (The Rescues) and Rich Jacques (RightTheStars) to produce his first full-studio release, “The Sea Before Us” in 2009.  “The Sea Before Us” is a lush, atmospheric collage of California acoustic pop-rock, oozing with catch hooks, infectious melodies, and lyrics that beg to be sung over an open highway.

The album found radio success with the lead single “In the Sun”, climbing to #45 on the A/C charts.  The press embraced Mark as well, describing him as “an undeniable talent, a singer/songwriter in the mold of Duncan Sheik, David Gray or Kenny Loggins” by PowerPopaholic.  Radcliffe has drawn further comparisons to John Mayer, Chris Isaac and even The Eagles, with crafted songs that “spin tails of love and loss in easy, cultured pop arrangements that are hard not to like.” (Wildy’s World)  But ask an average fan, and they’ll offer simpler testimonials like, “his album hasn’t left my car’s CD changer in six months.”

Through a strategic partnership with Hyundai, Mark has been touring nationally in support of “The Sea Before Us”.  Hyundai gave him a brand new 2011 Sonata to use as his tour bus and paired him with cinematographer Liam Finn to capture the adventure. To help bring the car to the people, Mark put together a Hyundai House Concert Tour all up and down the West coast, all of which culminated in a 5 minute tour video that became featured content on Hyundai’s website and part of their 2010 “Hyundai Uncensored” campaign.

Currently, Radcliffe is back in New York, playing around the city and steadily working away on new songs.  ”The Sea Before Us” is in stores and online now.

Music on the Album: Jealous of the Angels

Quotes about Jenn Bostic

“Jenn delivers on both performance and songwriting. Well mixed  songs with enough of her own individual style to carry things off in a crowded  musical market place.”
BeeHive Candy 2011

About Jenn Bostic

“Love me,  hate me/Leave or take me/Just don’t make me change” “Change”

Jenn Bostic’s career as a singer and songwriter began when she  was 10 years old, in the back seat of her father’s car with her older brother on  the way to school. A horrific crash that killed her dad, a hobby musician who taught her folk songs like “Sunny Side of the Street,” and turned her on to Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt, changed the 25-year-old’s life forever.

“God must need another angel/Around the throne tonight,” she sings on “Jealous of the Angels,” a song on her second album, the follow-up to her promising debut, Keep Lookin for Love. “Your love lives on inside of me/And I will hold on tight.”

Born in Philadelphia, but raised in Waconia, Minnesota, a small town 30 miles west of
Minneapolis, Jenn grew up singing with her family around the piano. Her father,  a CEO of NordicTrack, played a variety of instruments, including accordion, while his daughter picked up a love of folk, blues, R&B, soul, show tunes and, eventually, country. Seeing her father die in front of her made her angry with God at first, but she later found an outlet for her sorrow in music and writing songs.

“The first time I was able to sit down at the piano and play, I shut my eyes and honestly felt a presence next to me,” she explains. “I poured my heart into those first few songs. The only way I could connect and be with my dad was when I played music. And I still feel that way.”

Jenn went on to perform wherever she could, taking voice, piano and acting lessons, singing in choirs and school musicals. She would sit in with a local roots band, Traveled Ground, that consisted of teachers from her middle and high school, and once included her father on accordion.

She went east to attend the famed Berklee School of Music, where she honed her performance skills while studying music education, a field still vitally important to her.

“One day, I’d love to open up a ‘School of Rock’ type institution,” she says. “Just really give back by working with people who are as passionate as I am about music.” She also discovered country music, singing for a cover band called DiggerDawg, which opened for a variety of performers, including Alan Jackson, Josh Turner, Brad Paisley, Reba McEntire and Gretchen Wilson, as well as traveling to Iraq and Kuwait on an Armed Forces Jet.

     Thanks for watching, I’m Bruce Oliver with the Cruise Radio Network and host of the Cruise with Bruce Internet Radio show.

     Sheri Miller is a New York City based musician who writes melodic, poetic and catchy songs on guitar and piano.  The MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE says her songs are written and performed with “exquisite sensitivity…talent…and originality” with her soulful, inspiring, and distinctly unique voice.

Since leaving the band, Sheri has co-written with icon songwriters like J.D. Souther from the Eagles, Shawn Mullins and Jill Sobule. Sheri’s stunning new record, “Winning Hand”, produced by legendary Kevin Killen who also worked with U2 and Peter Gabriel, features incredible musicians like Will Lee of the Fab Faux, CBS Orchestra, Charley Drayton who performed with Fiona Apple, Divinylis and Johnny Cash, and Gerry Leonard who performed with David Bowie and Suzanne Vega.

Sheri Miller – “Inspired with passionate, soulful vocals, poetic, heartfelt lyrics, great songwriting, and super-catchy hooks, the stunning new CD by this authentic, rising artist is one to watch. Produced by Grammy-winning Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel).” – #CyberPR

Guest singer-songwriter Jeff Johnson talks music | SHINE & Chicago

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

 

 To hear my interview with my guest Greater Chicago native and singer/songwriter Jeff Johnson please go to http://InternetRadio.CruiseWithBruce.com/music/
 
 Thanks for watching, I’m Bruce Oliver with the Cruise Radio Network and host of the Cruise with Bruce Internet Radio show.  

 

Singer/songwriter Jeff Johnson was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago in the 70′s and first started playing the piano with his brother when he was 9 years old. Bacharach and David, the Beatles, The Beach Boys, Bee Gees, Elton John and others influenced their song writing and playing since then. In the late 80′s they formed the Chalk Farm band which enjoyed much success in the Chicago club scene, headlining at the legendary Cabaret Metro and Park West among other venues.

      After Chalk Farm broke up, Jeff moved to Los Angeles and found success as a dance music artist in the mid 90′s with two club hits – his own song “Whenever You’re Lonely” and a dance cover of the Bee Gee’s “How Deep is Your Love” which appeared on over 30 compilation albums in Asia. Both singles were released on his own Interhit Records label founded along with his partner remixer/producer Chris Cox. While running Interhit he also wrote songs for Englebert Humperdink’s Dance album in 1998 and co-wrote the album cover hit “Try Me” for Japanese artist Mylin’s Beautiful album in 1999.

     Between 1999 and 2008 Jeff ran label/distributor Megahit Records when he found the long lost songs that he and his brother wrote when they were younger. Over the next couple of years Jeff worked to remix the material for release and wrote 20 new songs. With the help of several musicians from R&B legend Bobby Caldwell’s touring band including Jean McClain (aka Pepper Mashay the lead singer, drummer Johnny Friday and guitarist Carlyle Barriteau, bassist Reggie McBride and recording studio owner Carmen Grillo they worked on his new album “Shine”. Jean McClain brought in Marcellina Hawthorne and both handled background vocals while Carmen brought in Alex Wurmbrand, Paul Henning, Alwyn Wright and Maxim Velichkin to lend their talents on strings. Renown horn players Greg Adams, Michael Paulo and Lee Thornburg as well as organist Joey Navarro added to the collaborative efforts.

Guest singer-songwriter Andrew Cole music | Why We Wonder & Toronto

Thursday, July 21st, 2011


 

 To read about Andrew and hear my interview with my guest Greater Toronto Canadian singer/songwriter Andrew Cole please go to: http://InternetRadio.CruiseWithBruce.com/music/

 

Listen to internet radio with Cruise with Bruce on Blog Talk Radio

Thanks for watching, I’m Bruce Oliver with the Cruise Radio Network and host of the Cruise with Bruce Internet Radio show. 

Andrew Cole is a Toronto born singer/songwriter that moved with his parents to Liverpool, Wales, Las Vegas, Toronto and Florida as a youth. A natural born singer, Cole grew up constantly singing other people’s songs, developing a vocal style characterized by a remarkable range of expression. Still, Andrew couldn’t see himself as a performer on stage. When he finally took to the stage and began the process of finding his voice in 2002 he entered and won Stars In Your Eyes, a nationwide UK musical competition; the next year was named the UK’s North West Artist of the Year; over three years of university at Salford in Manchester – the longest uninterrupted time he’d spent in one place – he played the pubs four nights a week, further developing his already substantial vocal chops.
Still his voice as a songwriter remained in lock up, expressed only through his reinterpretations of the songs he chose to cover. It wasn’t until he returned to Canada after his father’s death in late 2004 that he began working on his own material; writing his first song – Why We Wonder’s closing track, We Must Win – in the backyard of his new home in Oakville, Ontario.
When Canadian rock icon Tom Cochrane and his wife Kathleene Cochran, now Cole’s manager, heard rough demos of those first efforts they were convinced by what Cochrane describes as “a voice other singers would die for”, and set out to help the fledgling songwriter realize his potential.

WHY WE WONDER – Although there are shades of David Gray and The Beatles haunting the edges of his voice and arrangements, Cole’s songs and sound are entirely unique: From ‘My Lovely’, which begins as a campfire love song and mutates into a torrent of raging guitars that come on like a swift summer storm and pass just as quickly; to his brutally frank expressions of the dangers of time running out before love on lead single, ‘Out Of Time’; through to ‘Dead Roses’, a country tinged ballad inspired by a simple emotional reaction to a women’s perfume and featuring backing vocals by Kathleen Edwards.

     Why We Wonder was released June 8, 2010 (Crier Records / Fontana North / Universal Music Canada). The video for lead single, Out Of Time, directed by Andrew MacNaughtan, is currently in heavy rotation on MuchMoreMusic.
