Rick Keene Music Scene – Dalannah Gail Bowen; ‘Looking Back’ and Forward

Some voices are not meant to be silent.

Born of African-Canadian and Cherokee heritage, Bowen’s indisputable prowess as a prolific singer, songwriter, actress, playwright, storyteller, event producer, social activist, International Memphis Blues Awards semi-finalist and International Blues Hall of Fame Master Blues Artist has secured her standing as a fixture of the blues, rock and soul music-making scene for over 40 years.

Dalannah‘s latest release, her fifth, is a treasure. Rarely does an album come along blessed with perfection in music and – perfection in voice. ‘Looking Back’ is a personal journey and a triumph of the soul.

Please listen below to my chat with Dalannah and hear some of the best music possible.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Adam Karch Proves Everything Can Change on New Album

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange

Adam Karch may or may not have used David Bowie’s song Changes as an influence for his new album; Everything Can Change.

The album, Karch’s fifth studio offering, reminds everyone the more things change; the more they stay the same. Karch maintains the finesse which his fans are accustomed to but adds another dimension to his songwriting.

Please listen below to my chat with Adam about the new disc and where he is in life. Did everything change …?

Rick Keene Music Scene – Six Songs You Can’t Say on Televison ( or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Benny Hill ).

George Carlin knew the deal. Somehow he knew how the rich control the media and in return – the media control the masses. 

Disguised as a ‘news story’ – the real goal is to send patrons to an establishment or buy a product. Anyone who ‘helps’ – gets free ‘meals’.

Same thing with music. 

Buy advertising and just like that, your music is on the playlist. Have a cousin who works for the media outlet? Next thing you know – headlining a major festival is on the itinerary.

 

 

Please listen below to six  songs that will never be heard on the rad … er … television.
