Mike Marino and His RestlessSoul Releases Folk-Americana Gem Out Of The Darkness


Philadelphia, PA-July 26, 2007- Mike Marino and His RestlessSoul has a message for music lovers. He asks us all to come Out Of The Darkness and think about the world we live in, to make an effort to change our own surroundings and address our habits. This may sound ambitious for an indie artist that plays roots, Americana, and folk music, but why not? Bob Dylan did it and became a legend for his outspoken stance on politics and the human condition. They key is that the music has to be good and the message clear - and that is exactly the case here.

Marino makes a big impression on Out Of The Darkness and has reached another level of musicianship and lyrical prose. Folk, Americana, and Blues fans will be delighted with the combination of 70’s flavored acoustic and electric guitar work that Marino and his Tri-State all-star team provides on the session.

Mike was musically influenced at first by the British Explosion; particularly The Beatles, The Who, Cream, Procol Harem, The Moody Blues, Dave Mason/ Traffic, and John Mayall's Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton. His songwriting roots are firmly planted in the American Heartland and that is more apparent than ever on the standout release Out Of The Darkness.The album is produced by the artist and Co-Produced by Mike Dugan & Robert Campanell.

Prolific tracks such as “Racin’ To A Red Light”, a hard look at our fast paced lives, and “Stuck Out In The Rains”, a revealing look at the flood in New Orleans that quickly became a national disaster, are bound to win the hearts and ears of millions that enjoy Americana and folk sprinkled with the blues.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
