We’ve been off for a few days, but tonight at 6pm ET we are back with Gashouse Live! We’ve got a few in-studio guests, a ton of new music, and a look at the weekend’s activities ahead.
Mike Z of Unsung Philly will be co-hosting the night which is always a good time. There’s also a rumor that Jersey Jim will be stopping, and you never know who else might wander through the studio.
We will be discussing the world of music both locally and nationally. We’ll be playing some tracks from the bands playing our big show at The Legendary Dobbs Saturday night, and we will be building anew Youtube playlist which always leads to great discussions. And let’s not forget all the new music we have lined up for you today:
Coastalrise: REVRBNATION PICK Under the direction of frontman, Timmy Whiting, Coastalrise has been creating together since October of 2010. This group of friends had no intention of becoming a band, but through a shared passion for their faith and their art, the music was a natural product of their friendship.
Coastalrise has been quickly rising on the indie scene. Just after the release of their self-titled debut album in June of 2011, they showcased at the prestigious ‘Creation Festival NorthEast,’ where they took the top indie performer pick, landing them international recognition.
Marla Mase: REVERBNATION PICK Marla Mase is a writer/performer/producer/singer/songwriter from New York City. She writes songs, plays, monologues, short stories, erotica, blogs, and poems. She is known for her gutsy, sexy, raw performance style and her intelligent lyrics and is regarded by her peers as being a true musical pioneer. Her songs, a mix of world beat, spoken word, funk, r&b, punk, soul, and classic rock-n-roll are infused with GLOBAL SOUL, the signature sound of Tomás Doncker, her guitarist, co-writer and producer . She is backed by his band, the Tomás Doncker Band.
Modern Colour: While bursting onto the Philadelphia music scene as the city’s response to the deconstructed blues-rock pioneered by Jack White and The Black Keys, Modern Colour expanded their sound by experimenting with different genres and working with artists representative of each. Though the band is still a straightforward and in-your-face rock n’ roll group, a closer listen reveals layers of hip-hop, neo-soul, R&B, Americana, and funk influences hidden beneath the blues bars and driving drums. Modern Colour have a their CD Release show Saturday March 15th at The M Room.
Kenny Fame: Already a regular on Gashouse Radio, this NY singer/songwriter just finished up a few new tracks that will be a part of The Radar. The 2 songs Kenny is debuting are completely DIY from arrangement to production. For more information on Kenny Fame, visit reverbnation.com/kennyfamemusic or follow him on Twitter @68levi.
Quinn Archer: This will now be the third straight day on The Radar for Quinn Archer. She is an LA-based singer/songwriter with a bit of a darker edge. We have 2 singles from Quinn and on tonight’s show we’ll be playing her first, Walk Through The Fire.
Riley Road: Riley Road plays a blend of Blues and Rock that has been described as “authentic power blues”. The band consists of guitarist Nick Cianci, drummer Isaiah Weatherspoon and bassist Brandon Walker and has been playing local to the Phoenixville – Pottstown – Malvern area as a trio since the Fall of 2010. The talent and creativity of this band creates high energy, dynamic music with a strong rhythm section. Riley Road is also playing the M Room on March 15th with Modern Colour, Working Class Villains, and Joe Robinson.
