The vibrant and vivacious Grammy nominee, singer, songwriter, producer, dancer, and so much more, Chris Bennett, has released her 12th album entitled "Something Wonderful". Accompanied on the piano by Bill Marx, (son of Hollywood royalty, Harpo Marx of the Marx Brothers), "Something Wonderful", is a kaleidoscope of timeless songs from the “Great American Songbook”, executed in a compelling and sophisticated explosion of brilliance. Beginning her career as a vocalist and dancer in Las Vegas and on TV with Dean Martin and Jim Nabors, Chris Bennett found her way to Munich Germany where she met four time Grammy winner Giorgio Moroder, producer of Donna Summer, and was asked to join Munich Machine, an up and coming disco group as lead vocalist for “Munich Machine, Introducing Chris Bennett”, which contained the dance version of Procol Harum's "Whiter Shade of Pale".

Photo by Columbia SC photographer Sean Rayford One of the most refreshing, and talented duos to suddenly appear on the international pop scene and conquer the music industry are British/American brother and sister Faith and Harry Rowan. At the tender ages of only 12 and 13 they are already accomplished multi-instrumentalists, composers/songwriters /vocalists producing mature, sophisticated and professionally sonic tracks. Faith & Harry just launched their fourth track of this year entitled "Just Be There", an emotionally charged and heartfelt story about love, (of a friend) that is lost and missed. The song has a spirited flavor and a unique authenticity. Faith sings that song with an audaciously vibrant flair and a believable innocence. The two started playing music at age 3 with the violin, and then learned piano and guitar as well. In Harry's case the drums [...]

This evening I met a fabulous new artist, and a delightful man as well. W.B. Jones is the brainstorm behind Free Willy, a feel good, drama free, magical, musical combination of 70's style music, modern alternative bluegrass and just a Texas fashioned phenomena. The band proudly just released their debut album entitled, "Remember the Alamo". Although not the type of music I would normally listen to, I was miraculously amazed at Free Willy's ability to sound like a full-blown orchestra. I was also pleasantly surprised at frontman, W.B. Jones' vocal clarity. By the time I had finished listening to the complete recording of this full length album, I was a fan forever. The members of the band include: W.B. Jones, lead vocalist and rhythm guitar, Jim Taylor, back-up vocals and bass, Spence Peppard, back-up vocals, lead guitar, drums, Kevin Carter, [...]
