The Judes

About: The Judes

Cory, Jim and Mike are three likely lads from Winnipeg, Canada who formed a band that has evolved in to something pretty amazing. The Judes have a unique presence, that something special that sets them far apart from the everyday songs that bombard us at every turn. It is this simplicity and rawness that takes everyone to that great place which is fun, good times, and above all an appreciation of great music.

There are some obvious Beatles connotations and influences (Hey Jude) but don’t brush this off as another wannabe band as you will be sorely mistaken! The Judes have already made waves in Australia on their last jaunt overseas. A small tour with a big outcome, fans and crowds all finding an unquenchable curiosity with this international Trio.

Every now and then a band comes along that grabs you by the ears and just makes you listen. One that doesn't sound like just anyone. A band that changes people's perceptions. A band that quite possibly, changes music.

In an age where music is regurgitated and the rate of 200mph, it's refreshing to hear something a little different and less sterile - something that has heart and soul, something that lights that spark of emotion that makes you feel music.

A return to fun. A return to roots.

This is what music is meant to be about. This is what we almost lost.

This is passion, dreams, and the belief that one band can change the world.

The Judes are planning a second exodus to Australia’s shores later this year. With a firm fanbase in place and a taste of life downunder it promises to be a road trip like you see on the movies. If you keep an eye on the street press, your local live music website & the festival listings no doubt their names will be there. Go and watch them then breath out a sigh of relief, music is alive and well again.

Don’t take my word for it, download a copy of The Judes EP offering ‘Sunflower’ from digital retailers everywhere…. I think you’ll get it

Steve Morin & The Higgs Boson Project

About: Steve Morin & The Higgs Boson Project

The Higgs Boson. A title not frequently heard of or talked about amongst the masses. The search for "Dark Matter" and "Dark Energy" that make up more than 96% of our universe. It is the undiscovered particle thought to give matter mass. The God Particle! It is also the name I've chosen for this musical endeavor.Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoy your stay! About the Guitar....I borrow these lyrics from the song Discovery,by Rush. "Behind my beloved waterfall, in the little room that was hidden beneath the cave, I found it. I brushed away the dust of the years, and picked it up, holding it reverently in my hands. I had no idea what it might be, but it was beautiful" ... ... "I learned to lay my fingers across the wires, and to turn the keys to make them sound differently. As I struck the wires with my other hand, I produced my first harmonious sounds, and soon my own music! How different it could be from the music of the Temples! I can't wait to tell the priests about it! ..." What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it gives forth a sound. It's got wires that vibrate and give music. What can this thing be that I found? See how it sings like a sad heart. And joyously screams out its pain. Sounds that build high like a mountain. Or notes that fall gently like rain. I can't wait to share this new wonder. The people will all see its light. Let them all make their own music. The Priests praise my name on this night. Welcome to The Higgs Boson Project!

Mickey's career started in 1956 playing clubs in Atlantic City and Philadelphia. In 1957 he and Bill Harner started the doo-wop musical duo "Billy and Mickey". Billy and Mickey was one of the first white acts to break the color barrier playing a string of black and white concerts in the 1950’s.

In the 1960's Mickey was managed by the original owner of Harlem's Cotton Club, Herman Stark and son Steve, performing in the upscale hotels of Miami Beach.

In 1974 Mickey was signed by Soul Train legend Don Cornelius and Dick Griffy to Solar Records. By 1975 Mickey was recording the first album recorded at sea. Don and Dick moved the famous Record Plant Studio in Sausalito, California aboard a 110 foot ship! Helmed by the legendary Bob Johnston (Bob Dylan, Elvis, Johnny Cash) the album was recorded with an all-star roster of musicians including hit songwriter Jimmy Webb, Leon Pendarvis - NBC's Saturday Night Live music director, Chuck Leavell of the Rolling Stones and Willie Hall of the Blues Brothers band.

In 1978, Mickey’s album "Love Life" was nominated for a Grammy award. Engineered by Grammy-winner Eric Schilling, "Love Life" still sounds fresh today and is currently released around the world by Vision Records and Banderia Music Company.

By 1980 Mickey had decided to take a new direction with his music. Partnering with Rod Glaubman (founder of PACE, the largest non-profit performing arts organization in America), Mickey and Rod created concert events for those with disabilities, veterans and senior citizens. In 1983 Mickey was featured on NBC’s Today Show (see link at left).

In 1984 Mickey was awarded a gold record for his song, "Love Is Where You Find It". It went to number one on Billboard's R&B chart, recorded by "The Whispers" on Solar Records.

Johnny Duhan

About: Johnny Duhan

Johnny Duhan started his career as a fifteen year old front man with Granny’s Intentions, the most popular beat group in Ireland in the 60s. After rousing Dublin with their soul touch, they moved to London, were signed to the prestigious Deram label, enjoyed considerable success and disbanded before Johnny was twenty one. Johnny started writing folk songs, poetry and prose at this stage. In a career spanning 40 years, his greatest achievement is a quartet of epic albums - Just Another Town, To The Light, The Voyage and Flame - which correspond to the four chapters of his lyrical autobiography, TO THE LIGHT. Johnny’s songs are sung worldwide in a variety of languages, thanks to the focus put on them by Christy Moore, The Dubliners, Mary Black and hosts of other Irish and international singers. His song The Voyage has become a modern classic. Christy Moore has termed Johnny “One of our greatest songwriters.” And the late Ronnie Drew described him as “one of my favourite songwriters.” A new album, The Burning Word, has just been released.

Johnny’s journey is set out in a series of albums that portray his life - his Limerick boyhood in JUST ANOTHER TOWN; his tilt for fame and the girl in TO THE LIGHT; his reflections on family life in THE VOYAGE; and his spiritual quest in FLAME. Johnny lives in Barna, Galway.

Ari Hest

About: Ari Hest

On the L train heading East in New York City, Ari Hest is surrounded by business people, kids heading home from school, and foreigners looking at subway maps. Ari has his phone up to his mouth and he's singing jibberish into the receiver. After a few seconds he stops, puts the phone down, and says, "Sorry, needed to get that outta my system."

And I believe him. Hest doesn't so much play music as it flows through him. He explains, "No matter what I'm doing, aside from sleeping, there's a soundtrack to it. It's a blessing and a curse, as it drives some people in my life nuts occasionally, but it's how I've been and always will be."

Music is Hest's unparalleled passion, one that's seen him create at an astounding pace since he began writing songs in his late teens. Aside from the hundreds of melody snippets swimming around in his iPhone recorder, Ari has hundreds more on his home computer. And then there's the six albums, three EPs, and "52" in 2008, an innovative project whereby he wrote, recorded and released a new song every Monday for a full year. There's also educational music he's written for kids and as he puts it, "songs I write with others in mind to sing them."

And now, Ari is ready to release his seventh full length, The Fire Plays. Never has he put forth an album as cohesive and rife with personality. From producer Gerry Leonard's hypnotic, ambient guitar on the gripping album starter, "Untitled Part 2" to the final strum of the heartbreaking finale, "Something To Look Forward To," you are taken on a journey of self-exploration. And like Ari, by the end of it, you are spent. He explains, "When Gerry and I chose the songs for the album, we focused on how they were going to both musically and lyrically connect. I wanted people to hear it and feel like they opened a window into someone's thought process. Someone is drawn to something, a person or an idea of some kind, and there's this ride of emotions that follow - optimism, gratitude, self-sabotage, and eventually a desire to keep it simple and not think so damn much.

Drawing inspiration from a wide range of musical influences, the songs of The Fire Plays fuse the sounds of 70's pop era music akin to Gordon Lightfoot and James Taylor with the sprawling electric guitar soundscapes you'd hear from artist/producers like Ry Cooder and Daniel Lanois. At the forefront is Ari's rugged yet subdued voice which one-time Hest producer Alex Wong described as, "a bear eating honey." Throughout the album, Ari's command of how each song should be sung is striking. He can sound vulnerable, formidable, angry and hopeful, all with an honesty and passion you simply don't hear from most singers these days.

Lyrically speaking, Hest has never been a stranger to revealing the personal, and The Fire Plays is no exception. But unlike some previous efforts, lyrics on The Fire Plays are more easily relatable, perhaps a consequence of Ari's steadfast commitment to improving his songwriting. Hest explores raw emotion the way an archeologist digs for clues to life - with unrestrained excitement. They range from the more abstract, "And as I let them go, water cries for my soul, stripping me down to the bone," from the remorseful "Set In Stone" to the more straightforward but equally powerful refrain, "I play with fire, and the fire plays with me," from the title track.

Though often melancholic, the album also reveals an optimism, as we hear on the fragile-sounding and nostalgic "Concrete Sky": "Someday, I'm gonna cut through to you, and you won't put up a fight," and the playful "Winter of Yes": "And my face is so cold that I tear, but I won't let this be like any old year." Whether light-hearted or dark and intense, Ari's practical lyrics mold seamlessly with his grainy voice and quiet confidence to create an earnest, engaging delivery.

Hest's music has been featured on numerous television shows including Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill. He's also scored a film called Dreamriders, which won several independent film awards. And throughout his career, he has toured worldwide relentlessly to support his records, most recently in Israel as well as several European countries, and built the kind of loyal fan base any musician would envy.

While The Fire Plays is an excellent indication of what Hest is capable of, his live show will leave even more of an impression. Watching him play, one can't help but be thrust into his world, hanging on every word like a child listening to a ghost story. Some people smile, some people cry, but everyone at the least stops in their tracks to pay attention.

With The Fire Plays due out November 13, 2012, Ari will again tour to support the album, making stops throughout North America and Europe, as well as Israel and other new territories.
