Just a quick heads-up that I'll be taking down the page for the "7 Secrets to Low-Cost Music Promotion" workshop series later tonight. So if you want these exclusive audio recordings, please go to this page now: I presented this workshop in four different cities -- Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Diego. The most recent one took place in January 2010. On my birthday late last month, I made all four of these audio recordings available for the first time -- but for a limited time only. And the time to get them ends tonight! So jump on this while you still can at I would have taken them down sooner, but Pooki and I have been on a vacation that took us through five states in 17 days. We had an awesome time visiting Denver and the Rocky Mountains for the first time, as well as Seattle and the scenic Oregon coast. We had a blast. But now I'm back home feeling refreshed and ready to get back to the business of helping you promote your music. Hope you're having an adventure of your own this summer too! Remember ... the "7 Secrets" workshop recordings won't be available after tonight. Go grab 'em now at Cheers! Bob

Sofia Talvik

“We all know the Swedes can write a mean pop songs – but what about folk songs? Well, one artist is nonchalantly transferring the charm and fun found in most pop songs into sweet, ­acoustic twang. Sofia Talvik, brings bubbly blonde ­ambition to this raw and often quiet genre with a captivating breath of fresh air.” about Sofia Talvik’s album ‘Florida’

Sofia Talvik is the next rising star from the Sweden. She’s emerged like a Lady of the ­forest bringing a new ­interesting side to folk music. Where other artists surrender ­to the mainstream, Sofia makes her own paths through the ­musical underbrush of today. Her soft and airy music has been recognized by music lovers and critics all over the world letting her tour the US several times and ­making her the first ever Swedish female singer to play at the Lollapalooza festival in 2008.

“It’s not often that an album takes your breath away, and I hate to sound hyperbolic, but “Florida” actually has several “Oh my god!” moments of sheer beauty.” So writes CDbaby about Sofia’s new album, but who am I to tell you what to think, put the CD in your player and ­decide for yourself if this isn’t the most intriguing artist you’ve heard so far.

You probably haven’t heard of Aidy. Apart from a couple of tracks being used in independent films and a couple of tracks making compilations, he has kept pretty low key, preferring the lo-fi sounds of home recording and very occasional shows to a life in any kind of limelight. This shows in the fragile, bittersweet pop music that he revels in writing and only works to cement the fact that you’ll be glad you found him.

Taking the ramshackle charm of Guided By Voices at their most melodic and adding a boyish enthusiasm that tips its hat to both Weezer and Matthew Sweet, Aidy is one of Britain’s greatest unknowns. Tracks spanning across a career of demos and self-releases, Prettyish is one of his most recent compositions – both charming and warm, bruised and hopeful.

Aidy will continue to write and record long after this compilation of his work. But here is a worthy first for a man writing for himself in the hope that others will hear the sounds creeping from between the cracks – each one a small and worthy victory.

Katrise is an Orlando based R&B producer, songwriter, and artist.  With over 13 years of recording, songwriting, and production experience, she has collaborated with a wide array of writers and artists.   She grew up listening to musical greats such as Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Natalie Cole, Lauryn Hill, Tony Toni Tone, Mary J. Blige and The Temptations. Nevertheless, her primary influence has not stopped her from challenging herself with other genres from reggae to rock.  She calls herself an, “all around producer/songwriter.”

Katrise most recently recorded her first commercial album effort, “Embrace My Music Vision,” a twelve track R&B album with songs that are all thoroughly tied to the deepest inner recesses of her love for music.  The album is scheduled to be self-released in March 2010 with new singles, “Energy” and “Slide With Me” currently airing on Internet stations such as Jango Airplay, Last FM, and Sound Machine Radio.  FM stations include “The Carolina Beach Sounds Show” on Cool 105.3 based out of North Carolina and WZOE Real FM, “All Around the World” with Rihki Kennebrew in Philadelphia, PA.

One of her most notable collaborations is with locally known Kendra Legare and B Rob Productions.  Alongside Kendra and B Rob’s composition, she co-wrote lyrics, performed, recorded, and mixed “Keep it Light,” which won 13th place overall in Broadjam’s Six Pack Contest under the ‘What Does it Say?’ category landing the trio among the top 20 finalists.  It won 6th place within the category itself.   She also arranged and sung backgrounds vocals on five of Legare’s songs on her freshman album, “Life, Love, Lessons & Jazz,” (released April 2009) which has notable followings in Orlando.

Katrise has also collaborated with Chicago land’s Songs 2 Share President, Roberta Annicks on songs such as “uBoy,” “Fly in the Kitchen,” and “Just This Once” all available for license through   Both “uBoy” and “Fly in the Kitchen,” contain lyrics written by Annicks, while Katrise did the musical arrangements, performance, and production on the tracks.  “Just This Once,” lyrics by both Annicks and Schroeter, was also arranged, produced, and performed by Katrise. 

Other notable projects include co-writing with Boston based writer Shawn Lopes on tracks such as “Half Step/Whole Step,” “Good Girls,” and “When I See You,” all indie chart toppers on Artistopia in the R & B category.  Furthermore, Katrise composed, arranged, and produced the entire musical soundtrack for popular Purdue University news magazine show, “The Fast Track” in West Lafayette, IN.  The show had quite a following on the local level with some 35,000+ viewers.   The show aired on Purdue University’s cable network and Lafayette, IN’s WLFI channel 18.

With various musical accomplishments under her belt, it is clear that Katrise’s new album, “Embrace My Music Vision,” is not just a title, but also a request and a course of action soon to be taken by the world at large.

New York City-based piano-driven, alternative-rock band lead by singer-songwriter Lachi has garnered widespread attention, performing throughout the Northeast. On July 27 2010 EMI will nationally release Lachi's debut self-titled album, which captures the West African-born songstress’s knack for blending hauntingly honest and personal lyrics with breezy, appealing melodies.  On July 22, Lachi will hold a release party at the renowned NYC venue, Joe's Pub.

Legally blind and supported by blind band members, Lachi’s sociopolitical and poignant lyrics are often inspired by the stigmas of her visual impairment.  Radio Indy says her vocal and lyrical depth "captures what was once a great time for music.” With performances deemed "consistently good" by Computer Music Magazine, "gorgeous" and "catchy" by CMJ, and "standout" by NYU's Washington Square News, Lachi brings the art back into songwriting and the vigor into performing.  Through their devotion to music and their hard work and ethics despite all adversities, they have and continue to inspire.

Elliot Szabo

Elliot Szabo`

Las Vegas singer, songwriter, and all-out acoustic rocker Elliot Szabo ( engages his audience with a mixture of relatable lyrics and infectious grooves, delivering an upbeat set of crowd-pleasing tunes and styles similar to those of Eric Hutchinson, Matt Nathanson and Duncan Sheik.

Szabo had performed as a solo artist and in various groups throughout the Midwest before making the move to the Entertainment Capital of the World. Szabo joined up with drummer Kenny Byrne, bassist Gary Coveny and keyboardist / guitarist Andy Vieluf and the foursome have been writing, recording and playing shows throughout the Southwest since 2007. He and his band mates have a true love of performing, which shines through on stage during each show.

Born and raised in Indiana, Szabo cites the rock classics of the 60’s and 70’s such as Cat Stevens and Jethro Tull as his musical influences. Throughout his youth, Szabo’s father played guitar, which inspired Elliot to do the same. He painstakingly studied the songbooks of such iconic performers as Neil Diamond, George Harrison, and Paul Simon, and soon father and son would spend many a day jamming together.

“My music is inspired by a variety of personal experiences and stories throughout my life,” says Szabo. “The song themes explore the complexities of human nature within different situations.”

Elliot Szabo’s EP, “Between Two Points on a Map,” was released on June 26, 2009 and features tracks such as “Crawling,” “Majesty,” and “Window.” Szabo recorded the tracks at Digital Insight, a leading live tracking and mixing studio in Las Vegas. Digital Insight’s clients include B.B. King and Kayne West, among many others. Szabo also worked with engineer Rob Root (The Killers, “Day and Age”). “Between Two Points on a Map” is available for purchase at

Allen Karl

Allen Karl

“Hold on to your dreams with both hands and don’t let go. There’s no guarantee you’ll make it to the top, but I can promise you one hell of a ride. And sometimes that can be enough.”

--Allen Karl

Country recording artist Allen Karl is much more than “The Good Guy in the Black Hat”. He’s a seasoned entertainer, international dignitary and preserver of the tradi tional country and western music genre that has defined a nation.
From Willie Whistle to Recording Contract: A Teenager Finds His Calling
Allen’s love affair with music dates back to the tender age of 12, gathering with family and friends in the kitchen of his Pottsville, Pennsylvania home and soaking up the playing techniques of his talented mother and grandfather. Combining raw talent and an insatiable appetite for learning, the young man progressed at an unbelievable rate. Recognizing his uncanny knack for picking, local radio station WPPA hired him for the “Willie Whistle” show, a half-hour program on Saturdays that offered Allen the rare opportunity to “cut his teeth” in a formal performing and recording medium.

Encouraged by the radio station, the 17 year-old entered a talent contest at the Santa Fe Ranch in nearby Reading. Hosted by Shorty and Dolly Long and the Santa Fe Rangers, Allen stole the show and was signed to a one-year recording contract with King Records. What followed was a whirlwind introduction to some of the biggest names in the business. For the next two and a half years, he opened shows for such trailblazers as Skeeter Davis, Jeanne Sheppard, Hawkshaw Hawkens, Eddy Arnold, Wanda Jackson and the inimitable Patsy Cline.
During Allen’s senior year in high school, he and three classmates put together a rock and roll band called the “Shuffles” and appeared throughout areas of Pennsylvania near his hometown. They played for school and street dances, fairs and clubs.

Serving with Honor and Starting a Band: Allen Entertains Abroad
Following his sense of duty, Allen joined the United States Air Force. But music was never far from his mind. He started his first country band while stationed in Japan--The Dixieland Playboys. The group played a string of hot spots in Tokyo, culminating in appearances at the second largest Grand Old Opry opening for Ferlin Husky, Hank Snow, The Young Jimmy Rogers and Johnny Cash. Allen also appeared one Saturday night a month at Tokyo’s “Little Copa Cabana.” On one occasion at the Little Copa, Allen had the distinct privilege of playing guitar on stage for Julie London.

That stage experience was invaluable--and the contacts he made would serve Allen well throughout his career. After a couple of tours in Vietnam, Allen found himself in Thailand leading an all-Thai band as a weekend headliner at the Miami Club in Udorn. He spent the next four years honing his technique and learning to read his audiences.

Taking the Show Back to the States, and to Bigger Stages

Situating himself in Fort Worth, Allen began a string of premiere dates in Fort Worth, Dallas, Grand Prairie and Amarillo opening for the likes of Johnny Rodriquez, Willie Nelson Ray Price “The Cherokee Cowboy” at Panther Hall. The trail then led from Texas to Nashville, where he took up residence three nights a week at such storied halls as at the Opryland Hotel’s Staircase Lounge, The Stockyard, The Hall of Fame Hotel and Moxie’s Lounge. Recognizing a star in the making, Century Artist Records signed Allen to a contract in 1978 and released a record called “Gonna Buy Me a Camel”, Allen’s musical statement about the impending gasoline crisis.

In the late-80s, Allen appeared on the Grand Ole Opry Gospel Hour, by invitation of Hank Snow. About that time Allen was proclaimed an honorary member of the Cherokee nation in recognition of his unwavering support of the Cherokee people, followed by his induction into the Native American Hall of Fame by chief Black Eagle. In 1989 he was signed with Century II Records where he recorded ten singles, a twelve-song LP called “She loves My Troubles Away,” and shot a video for “Face of Love”.

Brief Burnout Gives Way to Victorious Comeback

Possibly feeling burned out, used up or whatever happens to artists who give their heart and soul to the business, Allen all but dropped out of country music in the mid-90s. But fortunately for fans, the hiatus didn’t last long. In 2001, he started writing and recording in Nashville again. 2006 marked the release of an 18-song CD titled “Rolling River,” sold wor ld-wide including the U.S. and twenty-three countries.

In August of 2008, Allen was inducted into the Traditional Country Music Hall of Fame in La Mars, Iowa. Allen released two more CDs-- a gospel CD titled “No Place Like Home” as well as a Christmas collection entitled “It’s My Favorite Time Of The Year.” Both CDs have enjoyed international interest. A tour of Ireland and Northern England is scheduled for 2009
Influences, Advice to Young Stars, and Odds and Ends

You might say that much of Allen’s success is owed to a strong family upbringing, a stable home life and an appreciation for the traditional country trailblazers that have influenced his career. His younger brother Jerry is still a close contact. He married his hometown sweetheart, Darlene, and the two have four wonderful children--daughters Janelle, Rebec ca, and Amanda and son Travis. Rounding out the clan is his grandson Mitchell, the apple of Allen’s eye and whom he describes as his very best friend.

Allen counts Jim Reeves, Eddy Arnold, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings as his biggest musical influences. And when it comes to young talents rising up in the business, Allen hopes to be the same positive influence that those legendary performers provided for him. His advice to aspiring singers and songwriters? Make sure that the music business is so mething that you love passionately, then focus, make a plan and stick to it.

Even though Allen Karl has had a career most artists only dream of, his future is even brighter. He now does all of his recordings in Nashville and is gearing up for more releases and international tours. Allen tours with his band, “Canyon River,” and has opened several shows for Tom Grant and Ronnie Dove. Allen considers his band to be some of the greatest musicians that have ever picked up an instrument. But perhaps more than that, Allen feels close to his band members--like they were family.

How he’ll outdo nearly forty songs, LP releases, a music video and worldwide acclaim is tough to imagine. But you can bet that “The Good Guy in the Black Hat” has the personal drive and artistic talents to give it a go.

On June 15, the oddball pop-rockers in Devo released their first new studio album in 20 years. Something for Everybody finds the group exuding an energy and swagger reminiscent of its earliest efforts. The sound is of a 21st-century band — fresh and powerful, yet unmistakably Devo.
Devo’s bouncy, synth-driven music has been immortalized through its kitschy costumes, funny hats (formally referred to as “energy domes”) and hit single “Whip It.” But Devo has also crafted a huge body of work and a strong cult following.
The band was formed in Akron, Ohio, by Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale in 1972. The two met in the art department of nearby Kent State University, and were witness to the 1970 shootings there. Their school closed for nearly four months, and Mothersbaugh and Casale ended up passing the time writing music together.
“We were just trying to figure out what we were seeing in the world around us,” Mothersbaugh tells Weekend All Things Considered host Guy Raz. “And we came to the conclusion that we were observing not evolution, but de-volution.”
This inspired the name “Devo” — short for “de-evolution.”
High Art Meets Commercial Art
The space where high art intersects with commercial art has proved to be fertile ground for Mothersbaugh’s songwriting and composing. He says he wasn’t interested in what those commercialized sounds helped to sell, but rather how effectively the sounds influenced people’s minds.
“We had seen people get shot when we were in school, and we came to the opinion that rebellion and anarchy were obsolete, and the only way to change things in our culture was through subversion,” Mothersbaugh says.
Outside of Devo, Mothersbaugh has built up a reputation for composition, scoring Wes Anderson’s films, the Rugrats theme and the music to the videogame The Sims 2, just to name a few. He’s also had a recurring segment called “Mark’s Magic Pictures” on the popular Nick Jr. television show Yo Gabba Gabba!
Bandmate Casale had been nudging Mothersbaugh to work up new Devo material, and when an ad agency asked to license one of their older, oft-licensed songs, the band asked if the agency would be interested in something new. The result was “Watch Us Work It,” but before the tune made it into the commercial, the song was remixed by the Swedish band The Teddy Bears. Mothersbaugh says he was surprised and excited by how much Devo’s members liked the final product.
“It made us think, maybe it’s time for us to try it out again,” he says. “We’d never really enjoyed collaborating with people outside the band. Devo was always very insular and protective of our aesthetic, and all of a sudden, the idea of other people coming in and taking what we had always done and held as our very protected artwork — and bringing something to it that made us like it better — sounded very interesting to us.”
Something For Everybody
Devo employed a process called “corporate consensus building” for Something for Everybody, in which the band honed its final product using input from fans. The move both upends the traditional model for the music business and remains consistent with Devo’s subversive, sarcastic aesthetic.
“In an age where everyone feels that their opinion is important, we actually solicited opinions from fans and let them weigh in on what songs we would put on the record,” Mothersbaugh says.
Something for Everybody comes with an “88 percent focus-group approval sticker” on its cover; a 100 percent focus-group-approved version of the album has been released simultaneously. The band members also conducted “color studies,” in which they found that their fans preferred blue energy domes to red ones. In spite of the change, Mothersbaugh says he intends to keep wearing the multi-tiered hat.
“That’s what keeps us young. It’s like an orgone energy recycler,” he says — a shout out to a universal life force suggested in the 1930s by psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich. “It’s made out of a very special material called PVC.”
Perhaps the most memorable focus group, Mothersbaugh says, was a listening party on the day of the album’s release. The audience? Twenty cats.
“There were various reactions to the songs,” Mothersbaugh says. “We had some professionals that do the measuring of the reactions of the cats — I don’t know if it has all been processed yet, but I’m sure what we’re going to find out is more information from that. We could have the feline-approved version of the album.”

Barbara Louise Holmes' on Possible Politics for RUNAWAY GENERAL STANLEY MCCHRYSTAL


LIMON CO (IFS) - Speaking with Novelist Barbara Louise Holmes about General Stanley McChrystal's Situation, she had this to say, ". . .McChrystal's no fool, and there has to be a good reason for his name calling, and I would not be a bit surprised if there would be a political agenda to his words. Holmes places him among one of the "brightest" generals in the history of the United States, and as such, this error in judgement was done for a reason. Holmes, whose father was a naval officer during World War II, who saw duty in the Pacific theater of operations, gives her an understanding of the military mindset, as with her own years of service in the military, especially in the legal departments, she understands the responsibility of command of what can and can not be said between the civilian and the military side."

Holmes, starts off the conversation, like this . . ." A Hole of His Own Making - is the cry among the military leaders. McChrystal wanted away out of the box, and to establish himself as 2012 elections as a true leader, as he has worked for the administration, and they did not listen. So Tea Partiers, this is your moment in history, a handsome young white man, four star general, with a voice of defiance for authority, and a true leader for the party, I give you 2012 Presidential Candidate Stanley McChrystal" - this June 23, 2010, Barbara Louise Holmes.

Barack Obama has an easy choice to make: fire a general who has established a culture of insubordination and indifference toward civilian leaders and partners in government or defer yet again to a general who acquires power like medals every time he outwits or outmaneuvers the White House.
General Stanley McChrystal went over clear lines in the debate about the surge into Afghanistan with freelance comments he made in London. Recently, McChrystal stated that the move into Kandahar would slow and threw into doubt confidence in a July 2011 drawdown start date. He didn't consult with anyone before a public redesign of US strategy.
And now in this Rolling Stone report, "The Runaway General" (pdf), McChrystal and his team are reported ridiculing Joe Biden, Richard Holbrooke, Jim Jones, just about everyone not in their groove on strategy.
McChrystal has gone over too many lines.
Obama needs to fire him. If he doesn't, McChrystal's brand will be validated and the environment of insubordination and unprofessional conduct will be reinforced.
If McChrystal survives his White House encounter, then Obama will be diminished.
That is what this has come to.
