YLN VIDCAST: HEZEKIAH

Written by  on September 15, 2014

HIP HOP/FUNK/PUNK/PRODUCER

It’s been a couple of years since we had Hezekiah in the studio and it was great catching up with him. Hezekiah is one of the hardest working musicians/producers we have spoken with. He’s writing music, recording, collaborating and producing. He’s got a side project called Johnny Popcorn along with his solo work. Hezekiah has fun with his music but always tries to have a positive message in his music. He also doesn’t like to be pigeonholed into a genre. If Hezekiah likes the way a song is going, he’ll continue creating it no matter where it takes him. Check out the Vidcast and let us know you think of it and the site in general.

TONY DESIMONE AND THE MERCY RIVER BAND

Written by  on September 8, 2014

ROCK/POP

Tony, Rick and Jim stopped by the studio to talk about about their music and the band. Tony DeSimone and the Mercy River Band is a group that recently got together, but they are made up of veterans of the Philadelphia music scene. The music played by Tony and the band was written by himself and the band has done a good job of making them their own. It will be fun to hear their new music when all of these veteran musicians work together on their first project. The chemistry of this band is obvious and is a strength as they are serious about their music but know how to enjoy themselves. Check out the Vidcast and let us know what you think of it and the site in general.
