Many musicians (and non musicians) had their first contact to music through a choir at school, church or community group. A choir brings back a lot of affective memories and the Brazilian group Boca Que Usa (a playful Portuguese translation of the Italian expression boca chiusa, used to describe wordless humming), from Rio de Janeiro knows just how to balance impeccable technique with a passionately executed repertoire. I talked to Amilcar de Castro, thirty years of choir experience and one of Boca Que Usa first time members, about the successful journey of the awarded group, which includes participations in festivals in Argentina, Venezuela, USA, Spain and the most recently in the city of Riga, in the Republic of Latvia.

 

(GF) What is so special about choirs?

(AC) Singing in a choir is a very rewarding experience, especially when you have the opportunity to be in a group with  a variety of repertoire that allows you to go from the erudite to the popular. It allowed me to meet several musicians from all over the world, to get in touch with diverse styles and ways of making music. When I started, I had the chance to be part of one the most influential choirs from Rio de Janeiro, Canto Em Canto, conducted by Elza Lakschevitz, a reference in Brazilian choir singing. At the same time, I started to work with Boca Que Usa. I am very proud to be part of it since its first formation, back in 1997.



(GF) How is the repertoire selected?

(AC) Boca Que Usa has a wide and diversified musical proposal. The repertoire contemplates from old to contemporary songs from many genres. We privilege tunes that are less known in Brazil   and we work under no fixed, direct regency, that is, the preparation of the songs is done collectively. Actually, collaborative work is the international current trend and it has been one of the  pillars   of our group.



(GF) The group has been active for over two decades. Any special memories?

(AC) Boca Que Usa has already won gold and silver medals representing Brazil at international festivals. Those were opportunities to show a little bit of our music to other cultures and to prove    that there is also quality choir music being done here. Another interesting moment happened during our last festival performance. We sang a tune in Latvian. The audience was very impressed!    They simply could not imagine that Brazilians would come up with a song in their language!

(GF) Future plans?

(AC) Logistically and financially speaking, coordinating a trip for twenty singers is not an easy task, but the big plan of Boca Que Usa for 2019 is to take part at the ‘Garda International Choir    Festival  & Competition’, in Italy. It is a daring goal, considering that Brazil has no tradition in choir singing, what makes sponsorship or any kind of funding support extra difficult.

Lovesick Radio – Band Review / Interview

Lovesick Radio are a Pop/Rock band formed in 2006 in Las Vegas, Nevada, borne out of an ever growing pedigree for success. The six- piece unit are fronted by Lead singer Troy Brown whos is joined by Drummer Matt Seskevics, Bassist Glenn Viers and guitarists David Harris and Matt Bores.

They have toured extensively throughout the States in support of prestigious acts like Kid Rock, Bon Jovi, Scott Weiland, Three Days Grace etc . As well as this, They have toured across the Far- East in countries like Japan South Korea and China, including a recent appearance at ChangJiang Music Festival. They have even featured on MTV programmes “My Sweet Super Sixteen and “Bands on the Rise” They have been described as an “ unapologetic arena pop-rock band that you actually want to hear”. This is a fair assessment from a band with an arsenal of well written rock songs that focuses on Love, Betrayal and social disorders.

The band write wholesome music full of Rock ‘N’ Roll attitude coupled with a hint of Honky Tonk and blues influences that bring that much needed swagger modern day rock acts crave.

I will be looking at a few tracks from their back catalogue, before there upcoming LP is released.

Numb Me Up ( Stripped) is an acoustic version of the original hit. This track is a ballad I personally feel is about a man talking about the struggles he finds in a relationship with a loved one. The basic strumming patterns and hushed vocals produce an unlayered track full of melodies.

Tell Me Why is a pulse rating hard rock tune that has Boogie Rock influences . The opening riff adds salvo with slide guitar effects that adds an extra layer to the music .A huge pop chorus blends with the high energy of the music and the defiant message that will keep those fists pumping.

Hooray ( She Got Her Way) shows the band’s blues influences growing. The mid-tempo feel adds a confident vibe to the song’s structure. Brown snarls about a promiscuous woman full of sarcasm with trumpets added in the background and meaty riff that is testament to the musical craftsmanship

Come Together is an anthem that shows how the sounds evolves. This guitar orientated track has a tenacious riff that blends with soulful vocals and tasty breakdowns with a delicious solo that fits in towards the end.

Lovesick Radio certainly deserve more success. It will be interesting to hear anymore capabilities from the new LP.

Band Interview

Could you tell us how you first met The Old School Project?

First I wanted to say thanks for taking the time to interview the band. As for the question; I wish I had a better answer for this but it was through the power of the Internet.

Could you explain to new listeners how you first met? And why you chose to form a band?

This version of LSR really came together after Troy and I ( David) recorded “ Hooray (She Got Her Way)”. We really enjoyed the process and decided to write some more songs together and just see what happens. After that things just started happening fast & we are still playing catch up.

What is the reason behind the name?

The name came from something our old drummer said. He was going through a break up and mentioned how every song he was hearing on the radio was about heartbreak. It was almost like the radio was love sick. We all just kinda looked at each other and said I think we have the name.

You recently performed at the Changjiang Music Festival in China, Could you tell us a bit about that experience?

This was our third time in China. We love the Country and the people. It’s pretty crazy to play for a few hundred thousand people. The people that bring us over and their crew are some of the best people to work with. Plus the crowds are great and we can’t wait to go back! We feel blessed to get to travel to all these different counties.

    

You have also performed in Japan and South Korea, What is a usual Far- East crowd like compared to a home crowd?

Each country and town are different. But the thing that’s really the same throughout the world no matter where you are is music brings people together. Everyone is there is have a good time and so are we!

Did you get to go sightseeing around the area? And the festival itself?

Sometimes we do! And when we get the chance we definitely love getting out to the city or around the people at the shows. But a lot of the time all we get to see is what we see through the window of the bus as we pass these beautiful landscapes.

Where there any local bands in particular that caught your eye?

There was this band that went on before us in China that was killer. I’m blanking on the name right now! We love catching the bands sets that we get to share the stage with.

You have some dates coming up, could you tell fans what to expect from the shows, and do you have any guests?

The shows are going to be fun with a ton of energy. We are looking forward to getting out with Wayland for a few dates. They are great live !

You have had the privilege to share the stage with an array of musicians like Scott Weiland, Hinder, Three Days Grace, Paramore and a host more, what was it like to perform with them, and who was the biggest influence on the band?

For me Scott Weiland was huge. I grew up loving Stone Temple Pilots and still do. Bon Jovi & Kid Rock was pretty crazy as well cuz those were stadium shows. And I think everyone grew up hearing those bands songs on the radio non -stop.

The band’s latest single “You Should’ve Known” is been broadcasted ON Air  on The Old School Project 24/7.

Published in Europe Section

Hello, River, thanks so much for speaking with me. I appreciate you taking time out of your day. I promise there aren't too many questions; shall we begin?

Cliché, I know, but can you tell our avid readers how River Lynch and The Spiritmakers came together and how you came up with the name of the band?

It started in 2015 when I decided to record a four-song EP of my originals. These songs were begging to be played with a band. Through a mutual friend, I met our bassist, Schuyler Skuse, and was re-introduced to our drummer, Tim Leverett. After a really successful set at the EP release show in 2016, we felt like we had something good and just started booking shows from there. The name Spiritmakers comes from my song of the same name. My definition of Spiritmaker is 'someone who lifts the human spirit through the power of rock ‘n’ roll music'.

River, you began your musical career as a solo artist before 'rallying the band' - a direct quote from your Facebook. Do you find being in a band more challenging or easier than performing on your own? How so?

‘Rallying the band’ is code for ‘Let's roll!’. I wouldn’t say there are more challenges being in a band compared to performing as a solo artist, just different challenges. With the band, it’s things like working around each person’s schedule and making time to accomplish everything we hope to. When performing solo, not having the band there to rely on can be tough at times. They’re different but I really enjoy both. My introverted self is a solo artist, and my extroverted self is the frontman of a rock ‘n’ roll band.

Do any of the band members have a musical background?

Schuyler began playing upright bass in 3rd grade, and electric bass in 5th. After performing throughout high school in an orchestra, jazz band, and the rock band The Absolutes, he went on to pursue a degree in Music Management at The Hartt School at the University of Hartford. At Hartt, Schuyler studied the bass with world-renowned jazz bassist, Nat Reeves, and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Music.

Tim is a multi-instrumentalist, played piano since he was 5, picked up the drums at 13, and guitar at 18. Tim is also a composer and songwriter who has created full-length orchestral ballets and instrumental pieces for TV and film, as well as writing over 100 songs.

As for myself, my musical experience started with the trumpet in 4th grade playing in the school band. Around 12 years old I got my first electric guitar and was part of a rock ‘n’ roll band in high school. At 17, I wrote my first song.

You are releasing a new single in March called 'This World Now'. What can you tell me about it?

It’s the heaviest song we have recorded so far. I hear it as a ‘psychedelic-western’.

  What was the inspiration behind the new track?

   The inspiration for 'This World Now' originated with an overwhelming feeling of personal injustice. Wanting to help someone who needed it, but not actually being able to help them. I see the song as sort of a thriller short film. There are three characters: the victim, the                     assailant, and the anti-hero. It’s dark and heavy, but speaks to the side of human nature that just wants things to be right. I’m really excited for people to hear this one. It’s a different side of us.

  What was the recording process like for 'This World Now'? Did you experience any problems?

   No serious problems while recording, fortunately. A while back, the guys and I laid down the foundation for the song; bass, drums and some rhythm guitar. More recently, I went back with our producer, Doug Zogby at GFI Studios, and began filling in the colours with vocals and       lead guitar parts. We’ve been playing this song live since our first show, so it’s been a lot of fun to bring it into         the   studio and really explore its full potential. I am really pleased with the way this song turned out.

  Could you briefly describe your song-writing process for us? Does each band member have a set role or is it a big ol' jam session?

   I write the songs and then bring them to practice and show the band. I’ll play them through a few times so they can get a feel for the structure, and then they start playing along to see what feels right. In most cases, it only takes a few practices for a song to be stage ready. It’s       all about the song with our band. Whatever we are playing, it’s to serve the original vision of the song.

 When you mention rock 'n' roll to someone, the associations range from Elvis to Nirvana or Deep Purple and Guns 'N Roses. What is your definition of rock 'n' roll?

  For me, rock ‘n’ roll should be dangerous, rebellious, loud, and dirty. It should have grit, passion and attitude. It should swing, boom and groove. It should make you move, make you feel, and make you think. It’s a mystical force that lives in your soul and is available to everyone.

  Rock ‘n’ roll is a symbol of freedom. Any band or artist that creates a genuine display of that, I would call rock ‘n’ roll. Chuck Berry, Elvis, Little Richard, the Stones, Hendrix, they are all prime examples of just that.

  How do you feel rock 'n' roll has changed over the years and has the change influenced your music?

The basic fundamentals of rock ‘n’ roll really haven’t changed much since its birth in the 1950s. I personally think in the past few decades it began to lose it’s ‘roll’, becoming stiff and uninspired. Of course, there has always been a handful of great artists keeping the flame burning in every generation.

Right now, I hear a lot of bands with similar influences as myself. I’ve noticed that a lot of people my age grew up listening to music from the 60s and 70s, and I think that is reflected in today’s rock ‘n’ roll. There are some really great bands right now that capture that genuine rock ‘n’ roll sound. It keeps me hopeful for the future. It’s not heard that often on terrestrial radio or in the mainstream. Fortunately, there are so many other ways to discover new music today.

Are there any bands or artists that inspire your sound?

We have a wide range of influences from all different times and all different artists. With that said, our sound has a 60s and 70s vibe for sure, so we are heavily influenced by a lot of bands from that time period. On a playlist, we are placed with bands like The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Alabama Shakes, Ryan Adams, and Gary Clark Jr. to name a few. We’re just trying to do our own thing in our own time.

Grassroots music receives more promotion now than in previous years with the help of the internet, so what is it like being an independent band in the 21st century?

Being an independent band in the 21st century is empowering but also very challenging. You have to do a lot of things you never thought you would have to do - one part musician, one part businessman. On the other hand, you have complete freedom with your creative path. There are also more resources for independent bands to use now, than ever before. That makes some stuff easier, but also brings along an entirely new set of challenges.

It’s good though, there are a lot of opportunities. I also think the general public is much more aware and supportive of independent artists nowadays. It’s all about building a fan base of your own.

What advice would you give new bands?

Remain true to your creative vision. It’s easy to forget why you’re doing all this in the first place.

Other than the upcoming single, 'This World Now', what can we expect from River Lynch and The Spiritmakers in 2019?

We’re focusing on playing in new places. Over the past two years, we’ve done multiple 3-day tours in Canada and on the East coast. We would like to do more of that. We’re also working on booking more festival shows, and we will have even more new music as the year goes on. We have had some good fortune come our way since we started. We’re taking that with us as we head out through 2019.

Thanks so much for speaking with me, River. Wishing you the best for your new release and all your future endeavours!

Son of an amateur musician, Sulimar Rass began his career at a very early age performing at festivals and bars in his hometown, Dom Pedrito, in Rio Grande do Sul, almost at the border with Uruguay. Based in Pelotas, he opened the RASS School of Music and graduated in Phonographic Production. 2016 he released "Absurd Conclusions", his first album. Far from the Gaucho stereotype, Rass lyrics are philosophic and romantic, while his arrangements mix Brazilian urban influences and rhythms from the River de la Plata Region. Still waters run deep.

(GF) When did your relationship to music?

I was born in an extremely musical family that has always encouraged me a lot, my father was an amateur musician and until now music aficionado. At the age of fourteen I received my first payment as a musician. Since then I never stopped dealing with music. My life was practically all dedicated to music, living from her and for her.

(GF) How would you define the kind of music you do?

(SR) I often say that my three strongest influences are the Brazilian southern folk music, instrumental music (from all genres) and Brazilian popular music, but I am also influenced by jazz, bossa nova, classic, rock. I think the sound I make is universal. It can be played and enjoyed everywhere.

(GF) What about your new album "Canções Inerentes" (Inherent Songs)?

It will be released on all digital platforms in September 2018 and in physical format in October. It is heavily influenced by rhythms and themes pertinent to the region southern Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina with modern arrangements and strong jazz and classic influences. I recorded part of it in Argentina, produced by Sebastián Perkal, winner of a Latin Grammy in 2010. The musical production is signed by composer and arranger Edu Martins. Edu has worked as a musician, producer and arranger over the last few decades alongside Brazilian music artists such as Cesar Mariano, Guinga, Milton Nascimento and Gal Costa, among others and also international artists like George Benson and Dave Liebman. In addition to Edu Martins, the pianist Mauro Filho takes part in the album. Mauro is a member of Edu Martins Trio and has performed with saxophonist David Lieberman, Débora Blando and Geraldo Flach. Mariano Cantero was in charge of the percussions. Mariano is also a teacher at the La Plata Graduate Conservatory in Argentina. He coordinates workshops in Córdoba, Tucumán, Mendoza and Rosario. He is also a member of the "Acá Seca Trio" and the prestigious percussion ensemble "La Bomba of Time ", directed by Santiago Vázquez.

(GF) Future projects?

After the release of the album, I will dedicate my time to conclude and release my online course for musicians who seek to improve their musical knowledge. I also want to publish my first book. It will be called "The surprises of the alter ego". A compilation of short stories that portray everyday´s life in a humorous way.

Stead Job is an old-school rock band from the metropolitan area of São Paulo, Brazil that hits the road on a customized yellow van called "The Kombosa Submarine" (Any reference to a certain quartet of Liverpool is not a coincidence). These four Classic Rock´n 'Roll aficionados bring a part of rock history live to the stage. I talked to Vanessa Abreu, lead singer and guitar player is responsible for the amazing female vocals. She represents the Pin Up and of the 50´s.

 

 

(GF) Characterization is an important element not only of your performance, but it seems to be part of the very concept of the band. Can you tell us more about it?

(VA) We thought of a way of mixing the previous experiences of the members, who had been over 20 years on the road in many bands of different styles. We dress as characters who represent our favorite decades in the history of rock music. I am the Pin Up, with red lipstick, representing the 1950´s aura. I also try to show that there is a place for women in rock. Lêu Abreu, the drummer, is the hippie of the 1960s. His costumes evokes the vibe of Woodstock. Renatera, the bass player is passionate about the 1970´s Groove and Marquinhos Carvalho, guitar player, is a represents the geek culture of the 80's.

(GF) What is the typical repertoire of a show?

(VA) The show's repertoire includes a hand full of classics, hit songs from Led Zeppelin, Queen, Janis Joplin and Creedence, among others. The Brazilian rock is represented by Rita Lee and Raul Seixas. And, of course, there´s also Beatles. Actually, we got the name of the band from the lyrics of "She came in through the bathroom window" and "Paperback Writer". We like to think of it as the perfect soundtrack for a road trip.

(GF) Who is in the audience of Steady Job?

(VA) The band has been together for three years and after almost a hundred shows in the curriculum, we realize that Steady Job attracts both young and old children interested in the sound and the story of rock music. Our motto is "Rock brings people together". I think the elderly have their memories revived and youngsters start to learn about the rhythm and develop a taste for it. Sometimes our fans turn into friends these relationships go beyond show days and come to life in genuine friendships. Last year we recorded a CD with the favorites of the audience. It also included the single "Three Wishes", the group's first composition.

(GF) How about future projects?

At the end of this year, we will record our first EP! We still don´t have an official release date, but I can already tell you that the album is full of love stories, from different points of view. We mixed the melodic styles of folk and powerful choruses of pop, but with a vintage signature, that is our trademark.

Chatting With Liber Electro

If you're into indie electronica performed by a duo from the Southern Ukraine, well then you've hit the jackpot with Liber Electro. Taking some time out, Maksim and Mila, sat down with me and spoke about their band's name, singing in English, recording processes, and their plans for 2019.

Good day everyone. I hope you are all well. Thanks for speaking with me, it's much appreciated. Let's get to it, shall we?

Hey! Let's go!

How did you come up with the name Liber Electro? Does it have a specific meaning?

Our keyboardist, Maksim, came up with the initial name 'Docks' which everyone misheard as 'Dogs'. We got sick of all the fresh jokes like 'fetch', 'bow wow' and 'roll over', so we had to reinvent the name. As you've heard, we have some electric vibes in our music and we want to keep our options open for merging and fusing genres going hand in hand with inspiration, hence, Liber Electro.

How did the band meet and form?

We first gathered as a student project and did some rock 'n' roll music. Later on this project turned into a cover band. Maksim and I, Mila the vocalist, decided to try out and do something new, experiment. The idea wasn't popular among others to say the least, and so we decided to focus on creativity, while others just kind of turned their back on us.

Who inspires you to make music?

While there is a long, long list of artists that would probably take a multi-volume book collection if we tried to write it down, it's more of something inside you that you cannot keep to yourself, which you want to share and to give. Also, when you hear some sounds that you thought wouldn't fit into one piece, that are impossible to combine or create harmony together, you get this ticklish desire to explore it and see what else could stand together.

Another thing we'd like to mention is a team. If there is a gang who really dig what they do and never stop learning, something great can come out of it.

If you had to describe the band in one sentence, what would the sentence be?

Per aspera ad astra.

Your last album was in 2016, can we expect any more releases soon?

Our new album is still smoking hot out of the oven as we've just finished the mastering! We can't yet name the exact date, but stay tuned!

As an indie electronic band, what is your song writing process? Do you have the lyrics first followed by melody or put lyrics to the melody?

We are the followers of the classic school philosophy, so lyrics come first. It has nothing to do with Maksim being a Master of Music in Composition.

Of all the songs you have released, and I mean all of them, which is your favourite and why?

For Maksim it is 'New Day' as it was our first successful experiment with hard guitars and electronica. For me it is 'Equipoise' as it is rebellious and has a rock soul to it.

And which is your least favourite, and why?

We don't want to sound stuck-up, but we like all of them as we nurtured each and every of them.

What do you think is the most difficult part of being in a band?

To mix different worldviews in one song. We see eye to eye, but still have different approaches and ways of putting it into music.

Do you have any advice to people starting a band?

Never give up! It might sound banal but if you already decided to be in a band, you have to stick to the plan.

What are your plans for 2019? Is there any chance of a tour?

A secret. How about a wild guess?

Do you find it difficult to perform in English despite Russian being your home language (I assume)?

Nope. Nowadays, a good command of English is a must, plus it's kind of easier to express your thoughts in a foreign language. It kind of gives you more freedom to say what may have seemed too freehearted in the native one.

And that's it! Thanks so much for your time; I look forward to new material soon.

Thank you for your time, it was a pleasure! Odessa says hi!

The First Worth Mentioning In Our Long List

Chasing Shadows

 

Chasing Shadows are an Indie / Pop/ Rock act formed in August 2010 at The King’s Head in Rhuddian, North Wales.

The five-piece consists of Sam Roberts (vocals), Ben Etchell- Rimmer (guitar) Russ Pearson (bass) and Chris Leonard on drums. Their music will enrapture you with its raw energy and catchy pop choruses that will captivate any true fans of British bands like Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks and Razorlight. Robert’s broody vocals blend with the smooth harmonies of Etchell- Rimmer's guitar lines create a melodic pop sound.

The band claim to write ”music about everyday life because there is nothing much to write about from where they are from”. They don’t define themselves by any genre and invite the audience to make up their minds to what they think.

Chasing Shadows recently released EP “Darker Days in July. You can find it via Itunes, Spotify, Soundcloud and all good media outlets.

 

There is little information I could find on the band to write this article. However, you can find out more about upcoming gigs and music via their social media accounts.

http://www.chasingshadowsmusic.com

This is the band’s official website that is a work in progress. There is a music video for latest single “Warning Signs” plus an option to access the band’s catalogue. Overall, there is not much choice for new visitors.

Published in Australia Section

One minute and fifty seconds. That´s all it took for me to fall in love with the Slovakian Stringbow Trio. When that short video hit my Facebook timeline, I knew it was time for me to pay attention and listen carefully. The record was from a live performance at a summer festival in Trnava, one of the many cities in Slovakia where the band performs their irresistible mixture to always crowded, enchanted audiences. Suddenly, the video is gone, followed by another one and before you know it, the internet ocean drowned you again. But not this time, I thought. I had to learn more about those extraordinaire musicians! First, I could find they came from Topolcany, a city founded in the 9th century that used to be a regional market centre during the Middle Ages and a crossroads of trade routes. Classy, all right! That explains the cosmopolitan flair of the Trio formed by: Adam Halás (21), Violin; Rastislav Sumega (20), Guitar and Lukáš Deviatka (20), Upright bass. But who were those guys? Searching for the 1:15 video post once again, I came to Adam, the violin player and voice of the Trio, when it comes to international relationships:

(GF) How would you describe the repertoire of the Stringbow Trio? By the way, how did you guys come to that name?

(AH) The name of the band was created by the words string and bow, meaning the violin bow. Our repertoire consists of songs from all over the world, including famous compositions, which are arranged in an original way. We also like to play songs from Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, in French string jazz style. In other worlds, it is music without borders.

(GF) I would definitely say you guys get a touch of Latin Jazz in your tunes, too. It is really impressive!

(AH) It´s just creativity and music fusion, but I would say that, if there´s something special about our style of playing, it is the fact that the Trio consists only of string instruments. I believe that this unusual formation gives our music a unique sound.

(GF) Your live videos show a very dynamic stage performance and I would say you´ve probably known each other for a while. How did you guys meet and when did the Trio started?

(AH) We are classical trained musicians, so we all met at the Conservatory. That´s where we started to make music together. Although we also perform as soloists in Chamber orchestras, jazz groups, tango orchestras and many other formations, the Trio itself started performing internationally in 2017, after we got the price at the New Faces of Slovak Jazz competition.

(GF) Future plans?

(AH) The Trio will record its first album. We don´t have a release date yet, but we will come with more information by the end of the Summer. You have something to look forward to!
