    Elisa Brown Singer/songwriter Host of The Heart of Art-on PBS

    "Tom's talent for selecting an impressive array of gem stone tunes for his weekly broadcasts is consistently stellar. So, while I was expecting to bookend some great music for my week as the Featured Artist, nothing could have prepared for the caliber of artistry that Tom chose for the week that my recordings were aired.

    I was literally blown away -- and truly honored -- to have my works featured alongside such a world class line-up of songs.

    Thanks,Tom, for getting my music out into the world!" Visit Elisa

    Steve Ratchen From recording artists Division 1.1, The Wizards of Winter and formerly of Alchemy X

    Tom is an absolute pleasure to deal with! His breadth of musical knowledge is surpassed only by his affability and charm- Having been in the recording/performing industry for many years, I have worked with a plethora of radio personalities and music show hosts and sometimes the process between artist and media can be confrontational or awkward at best. From our initial contact Tom was nothing but professional while being as cordial as if we'd been friends for years!

    This is a man who appreciates the diversity of artists on his programme and truly champions the cause of eclectic, independent music, that is, none the less, every bit as polished and produced as any record you'd hear on mainstream radio! And that is no small feat in and of itself- In an industry that has eroded so badly due to the generic refuse that passes as "music", it is only on programmes like Tom's Independent Music Show, as well as other like-minded grass roots shows that one can hear artists and genres that you would never be aware of otherwise- A noble and imminently necessary endeavor and one that I think Mr. Lambert is excelling in- Visit Steve


    Steve Vozzolo Tragic Poet Records

    Every now and then, something very good and very special happens in the music business. Being named the "Featured Artist" on Tom Lambert's "The Independent Music Show" is one of those very special events for me.

    I am an independent Singer/Songwriter, Recording Artist and Record Producer. I operate my own indie record label, Tragic Poet Records. I have released four CDs and I am currently working on my fifth CD, "The King of Vagabond Road - Songs Inspired by the Paintings of Jack B Yeats." My recent CD release is, "Fifteen Minutes Of Fame - Music Inspired by the Art & Times of Andy Warhol - Steve Vozzolo & The Tragic Poets." My songs have been covered by a number of other artists, most notably, Arlo Guthrie.

    The benefits I have enjoyed as "Featured Artist" are quantifiable in that my music has been heard world wide on over 190 syndicated radio stations by many hundreds of thousands of listeners resulting in new fans and increased music downloads and CD sales. My status as "Featured Artist" has resulted in significant interest and airplay for my music by other radio stations, as well. While I do have a presence on social media, Tom Lambert has made an "art form" of effective promotion on social media sites which has also been of great benefit to my music. Also, the acknowledgment, validation and recognition of my music serves as wonderful motivation for me to keep working. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation go out to Tom Lambert and The Independent Music Show.

    Warm Regards, Steve Vozzolo Visit Steve


    Deborah Henriksson D.H.P Records

    Being "Featured Artist" on 'The Independent Music Show' has been a GREAT experience for me! Not only did the program air two of my recordings – one to begin and one to end the show – but Tom's commentary sparked extra interest that "only" airplay alone could not supply.

    I definitely recommend the Featured Artist promotion to other artists. Visit Deborah

  • 'A Stephen's Indie Picks Presentation'--'Featured Artist...31/MaY/2019...Rusty Smith'

    As a young man, Rusty Smith made his living as a working musician playing bass and then transitioned into the field of recording and mixing in his thirties. He grew up in Dallas, Texas and was active in the local music scene as a bass player in the early 70's. The first band he was in was in 1965 at the age of 12. One of his band mates was Mickey Mantle Jr. , son of the New York Yankees player. Other local musicians he crossed paths with over time were Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, Eric and Larry Tagg, Brent Bourgeois and Rocky Athas.

    After playing in club bands for several years, Rusty moved into being a session bassist in Dallas and played on several tracks for artists such as Texas songwriters, Don Magee and Jon Early. Soon he realized the process of making records was something he loved and he moved into being a recording engineer.

    Rusty relocated to Los Angeles in 1987 and moved into the field of sound mixing for movies and television. It was during the big switch from analogue post production to digital and he got to ride the wave of change while working on some high profile shows. The biggest show being The Simpsons. The opportunity arose in 1992 to mix the dialogue and music for "The Simpsons" and it turned into a 15 year ride with over 350 episodes mixed. He also earned three of his 7 Emmy nominations mixing the Simpsons.

    His career in mixing television included HBO's "Deadwood", "Rome", Showtime's "Masters of Sex" as well as "Ray Donovan". He mixed for 20 years at Sony Pictures Studios and for the last 2 years at Universal Studios.

    In 2008 he started sitting in with local musicians in Big Bear California, a small mountain resort town that had a lively music scene. Th Skeleton Key Band performed a lot of Grateful Dead which was something he had never really played before. It was a jamming environment and there was a lot of freedom. Making some good friends in Big Bear, he ended up collaborating with some other songwriters there and released his first album, "Time for Things to Change" in 2015. He followed with the release of a second album in 2016 called "Paint Brush Monkey". It contained selections from his pre 2015 recordings along with some new material.

    Rusty released a third album in 2017 that was a little more experimental than the previous releases entitled "Out of the Ordinary". He had been listening to some new releases from one of his longtime favorites, Todd Rundgren, as well as a lot of Jackie Greene and those had an impact on the sound of the record.

    "Make Some Noise" and "Take Me as I Am" are the first songs released from Rusty since his 2017 release of the album, Out of the Ordinary. There will be an album later this year which will continue the forward momentum of Rusty's continuing journey in the creation of music to move both the mind and body.

    Rusty is starting new projects with artists he has discovered and plans to debut his new You Tube channel and website, Record, Mix, Repeat.com. later this year. The site will feature live performances in studio and on stage of Rusty and various artists form the southern California area. Stay tuned!

  • 'Featured Artist...07/June/2019...Erica Stone'

    Erica Stone, the epitome of a small-town girl in Southwestern Missouri who grows up to be a wife and a stay at home mom, with dreams of someday making music. That someday would involve years of twists and turns which nearly swallowed Erica Stone whole.

    Music City also came calling around the same time for Erica and her husband. Early 2004, music showcases and meetings with industry executives seemed promising for Erica and her then musical duo partner, and just as the duo was about to get signed to a major label, the doors closed.

    The music dreams dimmed and took a side-seat; but not due to the politics and roller coasters of Music Row. Erica and her husband opened an orphanage and an adoption agency to rescue the hundreds of children being beaten, traded, trafficked, separated, and displaced from their families. In the midst of the firestorm, they lost their precious daughter, Adama, due to negligence and corruption within the Sierra Leone borders. And without music and writing as her therapy, Erica felt like she was losing the core of who she was. But sometimes, it takes losing yourself to find yourself.

    Nearly a decade after she gave up her undeveloped dream for a destined reality, Erica is now sharing her story with the world, as an artist, author, and advocate.

    "I'm in a different position than I was the first time," Erica says. "I don't think I knew who I was. But today, I feel confident in my story and the mess of what I am and who I am. There's no façade--no putting on the best show in somebody's office," referring to a time when producers advised her not to talk about Africa in front of execs, for fear of losing her career. And when it comes to the future, Erica is learning to trust the process and surrender the outcome.

    NASHVILLE, TN. - (May 22, 2019) – In a room full of music industry VIP's, media, friends and family, Erica Stone shared several cuts and the stories behind the music she recently released on her current music project, Antidote. The long awaited and highly anticipated album was released on digital platforms on April 29 and featured on the New Music Nashville playlist. Download and streaming links available here.

    "I'm not the girl that came to Nashville ten years ago. I've been on quite the journey and the music reflects just that. This record explores love, loss, what happens in the dark, and how important it is to let the light in," reflects Erica Stone. "My hope is that each listener takes a piece of this album and keeps it tucked away... always knowing... regardless of the struggle... they are never alone." "Music should move you in some way; to action, to compassion, to change, it should touch your heart and move your soul. Erica brought all those things to the table when we started writing for the record, so the producing part came pretty easy," stated Producer, Brian White. "Brian Bunn & myself really just captured an artist just being herself. What an amazing record, what a stunning artist, what a beautiful story. I feel privileged to be a part of her journey."

    The twists and turns of life nearly swallowed her, but she rises to the surface with incredible new music, new lyrics to tug at your heart and melodies that offer you courage to stand or a safe place to find solace.

    Antidote, features two current singles by Stone, "Lies" and "Glass House." The video for "Glass House" spotlights real stories from individuals who messaged her, willing to share their setbacks and insecurities in front of a camera. The collaborators on this project are those in her tight circle that worked with her nine years ago and stuck with her, when others strayed.

  • 'Featured Artist...24/May/2019...Modern Mimes'

    Modern Mimes is an American music artist duo from Fort Lauderdale, FL. The duo consists of Adi Elcida Hernandez on vocals/guitar/sampling and Ernesto Paez on the double neck guitar bass. Their music can be best described as "Future Goth" a term they coined in order to explain the fusion of alternative heavy guitar riffs, powerfully haunting vocals, subconscious provoking lyrics, electronic drums, and catchy pop melodies.

    After almost 3 years of quietly creating and crafting their sound, Modern Mimes released their debut album "Wake Up" in early 2017. Their single "Love Hate," premiered on Blank TV and their video, directed by Carla Forte, was selected at various film festivals. They followed up their debut album with a cover of Type O Negative's "I don't Wanna Be Me." The Goth Metal Legends not only approved of the cover but quickly promoted the single and video before it's release. " I Don't Wanna Be Me" has resulted in a successful 30k+ views on Youtube and was featured on Loudwire.com amongst other media outlets.

    The duo has performed 2 years in a row at Riptide Music Festival, the biggest two day Alternative and Classic Hits music festival in Fort Lauderdale. They also toured the Southeastern United States, SXSW, and have a session on Balcony TV.

    Modern Mimes is a perfectly chaotic reflection of the inner workings of Adi & Ernesto who create music in hopes of inspiring listeners to journey through their subconscious and look within. Their sophomore album "The Gray" will be available in the Fall of 2018 and was produced by Rick Lander (Flaw & Dead Horse Trauma) and Anthony Santonocito ( John Hampson(Nine Days) & Brianna Taylor).

  • 'Featured Artist...17/May/2019...Wang Chung'

    Wang Chung, one of the defining bands of the 80s who conquered the UK, US and global charts, return with their original key protagonists, Jack Hues and Nick Feldman. Having become a staple of movie, TV, game soundtracks and commercials over the years, their name has almost uniquely passed into popular culture. The line "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight" from their mega-hit Everybody Have Fun Tonight has developed a life of its own, prompting the band to appeal to their fans around the world to have it officially recognised in dictionaries as a verb.

    Their upcoming new album, Orchesography, is an orchestra-boosted version of their best-known tracks, featuring the first single, Dance Hall Days, as well as Everybody Have Fun Tonight and Let's Go. As well as satiating the appetite for their legion of fans from back in the day, they are also introducing themselves to a brand-new audience who will have heard them featured across popular culture, from their breakout soundtrack to legendary The Exorcist/French Connection director, William Friedkin's 'To Live & Die in LA', to 'The Breakfast Club', 'Sex and the City', 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City'; 'Breaking Bad', 'South Park' to Rick Grimes' first and final scenes in 'Walking Dead'.

    A band which have always looked forwards and well as back, Wang Chung have re-recorded some of their iconic tracks, combining their electro-pop, new wave sounds with the full backing of the City of Prague Orchestra. Their combined efforts bring new life to some of their classic tracks, including Dance Hall Days; Everybody Have Fun Tonight; Let's Go and Space Junk. For over 35 years, Wang Chung have enjoyed success around the world, with America, Canada, Australia and the UK in particular taking them to their hearts, with six top 40 hits, including a number one hit. Featuring tracks taken from across their six albums, Orchesography is an exciting opportunity to acquaint yourselves in a new way with a band who have broken through into popular culture like few before.

    After a twenty-year break, Wang Chung reformed in 2010 and have successfully toured the world ever since, as well as delivering the critically-acclaimed album of new material, Tazer Up in 2012. Dance Hall Days is prime Wang Chung, a track which has found itself as not only a huge international hit but also cementing itself across TV, film and video games up to the present day. Featuring in films such as Bachelor Party, The Fighter, Deadpool and Bumblebee; TV shows including Breaking Bad, Mr Robot, Saturday Night Live and Glee, not to mention to console phenomenon, Grand Theft Auto, Dance Hall Days sounds as fresh today with its new make-over as it ever has.

  • 'Featured Artist...12/July/2019...Joey Stuckey'

    Joey Stuckey is an award-winning blind guitarist, songwriter, singer, composer, producer, radio and television personality, music columnist, educator and sound engineer. He is also the official music ambassador for his home town of Macon Georgia.

    Joey's guitar style is reminiscent of rocker Jeff Beck and jazzer Wes Montgomery, while his vocal influences range from Mel Torme to Gregg Allman.

    As an infant, Joey lost his sight and sense of smell as the result of a brain tumor and was introduced to music from an early age. His mother enjoyed opera, while his dad enjoyed country music. When he was 13, Stuckey developed pneumonia and eventually had to be home schooled for an entire year.

    "I lived for my shows on Saturdays," says Joey. "I was a huge fan of public radio and on Saturdays, I listened to a show called, 'After Space.' It was DJ'd and produced by a guy called Rob Thomas (who eventually became a good friend and is still a great friend today). He would play radio shows like, 'The Lone Ranger,' 'The Shadow,' and other classic shows. I was so enamored with these stories - the sound effects and narration broadcast in a format accessible for the blind were just amazing." The show was produced so eloquently, Joey decided that sound production was what he wanted to do with his life.

    What began as a simple statement turned into a life-long passion. After that evolutionary period in his life, Joey bought all kinds of sound equipment and was soon recording sessions in his house with various garage bands. He was amazed at the writing ability from the many musicians he came across. "I realized, at that point, that there were things I wanted to share with the world," says Stuckey. "And I knew that the medium for that was music."

    Without missing a beat, Joey graduated from high school at the age of 14 and at 17, began his musical career by taking classical guitar lessons from noted music professor Terry Cantwell. Joey went on to attend Mercer University. He furthered his musical education by studying with renowned jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan and later, with Professor Steven Crowell.

    Despite his physical limitations, Joey has flourished in every aspect of his life. He released several albums, including 'Take A Walk In The Shadows' (1995), 'Ironies, Pain And The Light That Guides' (1999), 'Live And Stuff,' (2000), 'Live And More Stuff,' (2001), 'So Far,' (2003), 'Oceanside,' (2009), 'The Shadow Sound,' (2011), 'Mixture' (2012) and 'The Acoustic Sessions, Volume I' (2014). Joey experienced national success with the launch of 'Mixture,' which reached #9 on the CMJ Top 40 Jazz Charts for North America.

    In 2002, Joey met his wife, Jennifer, who works as a certified nurse midwife in Macon. He is also the owner and sound engineer of a recording facility, Shadow Sound Studio in Macon, which boasts vintage analog gear and state-of-the-art digital technology.

    Joey enjoys promoting music in various ways. He is a featured music columnist for the webzine 'Portal Magazine' and contributes regularly to a music blog on 'Gateway Macon,' where he writes about the history of music in Macon and other music-related topics.

    Joey is currently involved with students, instructing them on guitar, voice, music theory, and sound engineering. He is the professor of Music Technology at Mercer University and an official mentor for the Recording Connections School in Los Angeles. No stranger to musical theater, he was the music director for Macon State College's production of 'The Rocky Horror Show' in the fall of 2002. Recently, Joey has taken on the role of music publisher and has a growing catalog of great songs in multiple genres. His publishing companies include Sociology Publishing (BMI) and Sign Wave Publishing (ASCAP).

  • 'Featured Artist...05/July/2019...Luanne Hunt'

    Thanks to the Internet and social media, more and more independent artists have risen to worldwide prominence through hard work, perseverance and grassroots promotion. One of those "superstars" is country music singer/songwriter, Luanne Hunt.

    Throughout her illustrious career, the award-winning, Grammy-balloted recording artist has built an impressive list of accomplishments, including scoring numerous No. 1 hits on independent country music charts around the world.

    She is best known for her chart-topping single, "Christmas Without You," which was recently named by Sweden's largest daily newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, one of the Top 25 Christmas Songs of All-time.

    "Christmas Without You" also landed on two "Best of 2015 Female Country Holiday Songs" lists in the major U.S. publications, Autostraddle and Truckers News.

    "Being on these lists with so many A-listers felt like a real accomplishment," said Hunt, whose studio musicians have backed everyone from the Righteous Brothers to Kenny Loggins. "It's a huge challenge to find success in the 'big leagues' as an Indie artist, so these honors were quite a validation for all the work I've put into my craft."

    Hunt, who was inducted into the Independent Superstars Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016, has been working hard at making quality music for twenty years. Her efforts paid off big time in 2007 when her CD, "Breaking Through," produced two hit singles on U.S. and European Charts. The enchanting "Solace in The Wind" reached No. 1 on the European Country Music Association's chart (Belgium) in July, 2010.

    Additionally, the song landed on the 2009 Grammy ballot in two categories: Best Country Song and Best Female Country Performance.

    Hunt's most recent CD, "Backroads, Bottles & Blues," has been hailed by critics as a musical triumph that could very well be Nashville's saving grace.

    "Wow, I've been waiting for "Backroads, Bottles & Blues" for a long time, said Bob Everhart, president of the National Traditional Country Music Association. " I can finally say, 'Hey Nashville, take a few steps back while a real country song and artist takes front and center stage. Well, maybe not just a few steps, take a lot of steps back, (because) here's a country album that a whole big bunch of people have been waiting for a long time to hear."

    Hunt began pursuing a professional music career in the mid-1990s. She found immediate success with her critically-acclaimed single "I Don't Bother Counting," which was frequently played on the former KIK FM country radio station in Orange County, California and on other stations throughout the Southwest.

    Over the years, the Pennsylvania native's songs have been played on AM, FM, satellite and Internet stations around the world, including Pandora radio. In addition, she is a four-time American Songwriting Awards winner and also is the recipient of three "CD of the Year" awards from the National Traditional Country Music Association (NTCMA)."

  • 'Featured Artist...27/June/2019...Kristin Hersh'

    Indie music heroine and celebrated 4AD Records veteran Kristin Hersh announces June 'Live and Loud' tour dates in support of her new highly acclaimed album 'Possible Dust Clouds', out now digitally, on vinyl and CD via Fire Records. Playing as a hard-hitting electric trio, along with Fred Abong (Throwing Muses) and Rob Ahlers (50FOOTWAVE), these shows are loud, tight and intense, featuring material off this LP and from across Hersh's 30-year career.

    Kristin Hersh is most recognized as frontperson for the influential art-punk band Throwing Muses and power trio 50FOOTWAVE. Throwing Muses gained traction in the early '80s, playing with bands like The Pixies and Dinosaur Jr. Kristin's solo career spun off in 1994 with the widely acclaimed 'Hips and Makers', featuring 'Your Ghost', a duet with R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe. Kristin has since released a steady stream of distinct solo albums with 2010's 'Crooked' the first release in the inventive book/CD format she is now known for.

    In addition to a series of frighteningly intense mini-albums via 50FOOTWAVE, Kristin's writing career has also flourished with the highly acclaimed 'Rat Girl' (titled 'Paradoxical Undressing' in the UK) and the award winning 'Don't Suck, Don't Die', a personal account of her long friendship with the late Vic Chesnutt.

    Hersh is also pleased to announce that Throwing Muses will be performing at the Pasadena Daydream Festival on August 31, along with The Cure, Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, The Joy Formidable, Twilight Sad, Chelsea Wolfe, Kaelan Mikla and Emma Ruth Rundle.

    Kristin Hersh's astounding career has crowned her queen of the alternative release. Her tenth studio album 'Possible Dust Clouds' is a highly personalized sociopathic gem delivered as a futuristic rewriting of how music works – a melodious breeze with a tail wind of venomous din.

    A turbulent cracker with riot grrl swagger, this album is Hersh's first new material since 2016, when she released her critically-acclaimed double album-book combo 'Wyatt at the Coyote Palace'. In contrast to that LP, which saw Hersh record over several years, playing all the instruments on these songs over many years, this album involves numerous friends.

    Enveloping the juxtaposition of the concept 'dark sunshine', she created this brooding solo, expanding her off-kilter sonic vision. Produced by Hersh herself, this album was mixed and mastered by Steve Rizzo with contributions by Fred Abong on bass, Chris Brady (Pond) on vocals and bass, and drums by Throwing Muses' David Narcizo, Rob Ahlers and Kristin's son, Wyatt True. The result is a squally and heady mix of discordant beauty.

    "When I heard the record back after leaving the atmosphere of the studio, it was like stepping back from a painting. It just sounded like this chaotic party. You want the chaos, you want the violence, the sweetness lends itself to a fun explosion. And that's what "Possible Dust Clouds" sounds like," says Kristin Hersh.

    Feedback and phasing gyrate from simply strummed normality. Imagine Dinosaur Jr and My Bloody Valentine cranking up a Dylan couplet. 'Possible Dust Clouds' is a glorious return to form for one of alternative rock's true innovators.

    Touring allows listeners the chance to experience what the BBC calls Hersh's "dark and dizzy world". For this tour,
 Fred Abong also opens the show with an acoustic solo set in support of his own recently-released 'Pulsing' EP. His music is alternately described as "ragged Replacements" and "Elliott Smith with balls".

    Hersh admits, "My new favorite incarnation is the super-group I'm playing in now, with Fred Abong from the Muses and Rob Ahlers from 50FOOTWAVE. We're touring 'Possible Dust Clouds' because they both played on it, but I had no idea it would be this incredible. We're all terrified that this tour will end someday. Which it will."

    'Possible Dust Clouds' is available now online everywhere and on vinyl via Fire Records, who also re-released her seminal album 'Crooked' on snazzy orange vinyl on Record Store Day 2019. Hersh kicks off her new tour on June 19 in Northampton, MA at The Iron Horse. Ticket info and sales links for all shows can be found at www.kristinhersh.com/appearances.

  • 'Featured Artist...21/June/2019...Michael Owens'

    MICHAEL OWENS first solo release, The Devils Doorway, garnered airplay and rave reviews around the world. The Right Kind Of Crazy is the second solo effort by Michael Owens. The album features an eclectic blend of Rock, Blues, Americana & Country based songs. The bonus track "14 South 5th Street Blues" was placed in the documentary Jay's Longhorn (about the infamous bar that in the late 1970's was the Minneapolis counter point to New York's CBGB's) and features members of Owens legendary band Fingerprints as well as Minneapolis legends Curtiss A and The Suicide Commandos Chris Osgood. The Documentary is currently a finalist in two Film Festivals. In October 2015 Steve Earle spun Fingerprints track "Down" on his Hardcore Troubadour Radio show on Sirius Radio.

    MICHAEL OWENS is a singer, songwriter, guitar player and Record Producer. He founded BLACKBERRY WAY RECORDING STUDIOS, the infamous Minneapolis Recording Studio, Record Label and Music Publisher. Blackberry Way was proud to be included in the New York Times best seller "Trouble Boys" by Bob Mehr about Minneapolis's Legendary band The Replacements. The Replacements recorded several albums at Blackberry Way including "Let It Be." Rolling Stone Magazine's 100 most important albums of the 1980's sandwiched "Let It Be" between Peter Gabriel & Prince at number 15. Blackberry Way has been featured in Billboard, Musician, Cash Box & Mix Magazine. Blackberry Way Records has placed several songs in TV shows & films including "Red Oaks" on Amazon, "Wicked City" on ABC TV, "Stranger Things & The OA" on NetFlix, "Young Sheldon" on CBS and the Documentary Jay's Longhorn.

    Fingerprints shared the stage with Pere Ubu, Blondie, Peter Hammill, Mitch Ryder, and Dwight Twilley. The band performed at several Walker Art Center events including the M-80 music festival in 1979 featuring the Richard Lloyd Quintet, Chris Stamey & The DB's, The Fleshtones & Joan Jett. In 1999 the band performed at The Mill City Music festival featuring Prince and reformed in 2019 to perform two sold out shows at The Parkway Theater in Minneapolis in support of the documentary "Jay's Longhorn." The late Tim Carr (A&R at Warner Brothers) called Mike's song Wasted On You, the best single song on the first three EP's simultaneously released on Twin/Tone Records (The little Red Records-Fingerprints, The Suburbs and Curtiss A's Spooks) The band also headlined at The Walker Art Center Presents "The Cream Of The Crop" in 1979.

    In the aftermath of Fingerprints Mike along with Blackberry Way partner and Fingerprints drummer Kevin Glynn, formed THE IDLE STRAND. With Gary Menne on bass the band released two LP's on Blackberry Way Records. The LP's received rave reviews in Boston Rock, Rockpool and Cash Box magazines. The LP's were released in Europe on LINE/WARNER BROTHERS RECORDS, and garnered tons of college radio- play in the USA. The Idle Strand has several songs placed in TV shows on ABC TV as well as Amazon Streaming TV. As a record producer/recording engineer and session musician Mike appears on countless projects over the years.

  • 'Featured Artist...14/June/2019...The April Fools'

    The April Fools return for a celebration of "Third", their highly-anticipated new release, engineered and produced by Mike Owens at Blackberry Way Studios, and mastered by Andy Walters at Abbey Road Studios, London, UK.

    Members of this all-star lineup have rich histories that include work with Lowell George of Little Feat, Link Wray, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Chuck Berry, Roy Buchanan, The Hard Left, The Flamin' Oh's, Tetes Noires, and Robert Palmer, and have appearances on Austin City Limits and The Tonight Show on their credits.

    The appropriately titled "Third" finds the Fools in top form as personnel changes propel the band to a blues influenced Classic Rock feel while still retaining the Roots Rock and Americana sounds the band is known for.

    Their latest video is the first episode of a new series Blackberry Way "In Studio" The Making Of Third. The video currently has over 2000 views on Facebook.

    The April Fools began as a studio project for singer/songwriter Brian Drake, who intended to record a batch of his songs with help from a wide network of players to flesh out the tunes. Guitar, bass, and drums would be augmented by horn players, strings, woodwinds, keyboards, vocalists, and more depending on the specific song. The songs themselves spanned a broad spectrum—rock to straight-up country to alt-country/Americana to blue-eyed soul to Brit-pop to folk to 70's AM radio and more.

    The four original band members got together for their first jam on September 15, 2013 with the agreement that this was simply a project—a project with a beginning and an end. Then, a funny thing happened; they became a band. The ease of collaboration—the charmed chemistry that presented itself—was apparent almost immediately and they all knew, without saying anything about it, this was something they wanted to continue to do as an ensemble.

    Finding a cohesive thread with which to bring together those diverse genres, they began recording sessions for what would become their debut album. Released in April 2015, The April Fools garnered airplay on more than 100 radio stations across the U.S.

    Fast-forward to December 2017. After releasing their second album Colorwheel, guitarist Clay Williams chose to exit the band. The three remaining members carried on with the addition of Minneapolis veteran Terri Owens (Tete Noires, The Flamin' Oh's, and others) and Dallas transplant Brad McLemore (Sara Hickman).

    Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the new April Fools!
