The Empty Hearts – Fill An Empty Heart

empty_heartsEven though The Empty Hearts feature members of Blondie, The Cars, The Chesterfield Kings and The Romantics—as well as being christened by Little Steven Van Zandt from his super-secret list of unused band names—this is no cynically constructed super group.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer Clem Burke, guitarist Elliot Easton, bassist Andy Babiuk and lead singer/rhythm guitarist Wally Palmar have parlayed a combined lifetime of rock ‘n’ roll into their self-titled 429 Records debut, a sterling collection of influences that include ‘50s American roots rock ‘n’ roll, ‘60s British Invasion and ‘70s garage-punk that is anything but retro, rather a refreshing return to core musical values.

Simone Felice – Molly-O!

Simone-FeliceSimone Felice is a celebrated songwriter, author, and poet. He was born on 4 October 1976 in Palenville, New York, a small working-class hamlet in the Catskill Mountains. At the age of twelve Simone suffered a brain aneurysm and was pronounced clinically dead for several minutes. Recovering from emergency brain surgery in a local hospital, he spent two months in intensive care, relearning basic motor skills, including reading and writing. Simone’s new full-length album, Strangers, (due out March 2014) is a ten song collection recorded in the Catskills with producer / friend David Baron, along with guest artists The Felice Brothers, Leah Siegel, and Wesley Schultz & Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers. Here is a body of work that truly captures Simone’s rare gift as a poet, song-crafter, and unique visionary; an album certain to cement Felice’s place as one of the great songwriter-poets of his generation.

Waiting For Henry – Incomplete Me

WfHWaiting For Henry return to the Jersey Shore as part of the Songwriters On The Beach series with special guests EdTang & The Chops on Thursday August 14. 7pm, free and all ages on the 5th Avenue boardwalk in Belmar.

Waiting For Henry is a new band of old friends brought together by the emotive American rock & roll of their debut album: Ghosts & Compromise. Fronted by former Mr. Henry lead singer/guitarist, Dave Slomin, the band includes Dave Ashdown on drums, guitar & vocals and Michael Chun on bass. Like all artists meant to be heard, Waiting for Henry draws on the past in order to see the future… both musically and personally. AmericanaRockMix got it right, recognizing in Ghosts the “great music that can be rendered when a band lands on the borderline of indie rock and Alt. Country without getting too caught up in either territory”

Peter Bradley Adams’ journey to singer/songwriter is a typical one as he combines his ideas with those of his musical influences. A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Adams credits his grandfather, a former professional jazz clarinetist and accomplished pianist, as being his earliest musical inspiration. Adams began playing piano at the age of 6 and continued studying piano throughout high school and college.

He worked with composer Michael Kapsner while studying abroad in Freiburg, Germany. While focusing on piano, organ, and music composition, his experience in Germany inspired Adams to continue his musical studies stateside. Adams graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Music from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.

He continued his studies at the University of Alabama’s School of Music in Tuscaloosa where he earned a Master’s degree in Music Composition. Adams was drawn to Los Angeles in the mid ‘90s to study film scoring at USC Thornton School of Music’s famed Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television (SMPTV) program which is the world’s most acclaimed programs of its kind. Adams worked as a freelance score composer for film and television until forming eastmountainsouth in 2001.
