Maggie Sayles Releases Debut Trust

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Portland, Oregon—April 23, 2007— Maggie Sayles discovered her musical talent at an early age when a fascination with the family stereo earned her continual reprimanding from her parents. Her persistent defiant rock and roll attitude became a source of ongoing concern but eventually she had her way. As they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and she ended up with her first guitar-a Sears & Roebuck’s flame-top 6-string.

Maggie attended the prestigious Marylhurst College, majoring in composition and theory. During that experience she gained a deep respect and appreciation for classical music, then decided to hit the road in search of something more personally fulfilling. Traveling took her musically into the far corners of the world filling her soul with the music of Vietnam, the rhythms of Africa, and the sounds of the Ituri Forest Pygmies and Native American flute. In conjunction with that mind expanding music the young artist experimented with midi, studied studio recording, jazz guitar, and video production. During this time her songwriting flourished. Music was Maggie’s only real emotional outlet and she set out to pour every ounce of time and energy into it.

In April 2006, Maggie quit her day job to make room for music again and in January 2007 released her debut album Trust. Maggie says “The ability to make music is such a wonderful gift. I’m barely breathing without it. There is no other path…” That statement summarizes a lifetime of love and passion for music as an art form. All of her feelings reach its fruition on the eclectic and driven tracks of Trust, a progressive rock adult contemporary treat for the ears and senses. The album uses rock as a platform and dives into the realms of progressive and jazz while very skillfully combining all three genres to give the alert listener some substance and a requirement to absorb repeated listens to realize the scope and breadth of this work.

“Down On Love” is a track that starts as a pitter patter of rain drops outside your window which builds into gradual hard driving sheets of musical rain that leaves you hanging in anticipation for the next track. The following track “Only You,” ups the ante with more powerfully focused energy, pushing the musical envelope to the brink, while the catchy “Please” is a radio friendly spot on pick for a single. The album features the give and take female to male vocals from Sayles and her counterpart Rex McNew. As the album takes shape and develops into one complete and memorable listening experience that is not to be missed.

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018 http://ghost-official.com


With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…

Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert Review

The Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert The Palace Theater Albany, New York April 3, 2019 http://www.experiencehendrixtour.com/


The pictures I have provided were snapped by me with my phone to give you an idea of the backdrop to the music prior to the show. That screen changed with each song and it was very trippy psychedelic colors and images that mirrored the timeframe of Jimi in his prime. -Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck
The Electric Church arrived in Albany, NY last night with its all-star cast for the Experience Hendrix 2019 Tour.The music of Jimi Hendrix continues to thrive and be embraced by fans worldwide. This is a tour I have been wanting to catch for several years now and I finally made it, and so glad I did.
The best thing that could happen to this event is the involvement of Billy Cox. Anyone familiar with Jimi’s music knows that they were friends for a long time and Billy played bass on some of Jimi’s albums. Also, with Janie Hendrix involved it makes everything legit. Also havin…
