S02 E25 I'm the Hook and She's the Bridge | A Music Junkies Podcast with Harley Cornell
This episode's guest has a sexy voice!  Harley Cornell, host of the HOOK AND BRIDGE PODCAST.  Harley has a PEARL JAM tattoo.  One of his all-time favorite bands.  It all started at a bar much like what we know as CHEERS where everybody knows your name.  They were doing the song, karaoke style, and Harley dedicated the song to BOBBY FOX just believing he was present.SUNSET BOULEVARD was Harley's first band name.   It's interesting how humble Harley is that he did not have ONE of his songs on his playlist.  And he has amazing stories about how the music on his playlist affected his life.  He is a big LYRICIST.   There is, beyond the music, nothing MORE THAN WORDS.   The first cassette was PINK FLOYD, the first CD was KEITH URBAN, and the first MP3 download was BAD COMPANY.  Harley even remembers the exact albums and songs.What performance did he do in grade three that sent him home?  A resurgence in his life is the PIANO MAN.    Harley's wife Lindsay and his little sister Taylor are on the show, and his wife keeps getting BILLY JOEL and ELTON JOHN mixed up when the songs come on.  Both are amazing artists!From being a POKEMON fan and starting a Podcast about that, a busy life ended up closing that up.  When things settled, they decided to start again, and THE HOOD AND BRIDGE PODCAST came from the hook, which is what Harley is, Taylor is the bridge, and Lindsay is the "and", what keeps the team together.  It's a weekly show, and BREAKING NEWS, Ralph Sutton, from the SDR Show will be a guest.Country bumpkin, his first "metal" he heard was NICKELBACK!  And why the briefcase? A :)  And the beautiful story about his father being a shitty father, but a great friend.  The song that comes to mind is AJR's - DEAR WINTER.What a great episode.  Great conversation, a great connection, and was simply a great guest.To find out more about the Podcast, and more about Harley, please visit hook_and_bridge_podcast   The #1 Music Comedy Brother Sister podcast!

S02 E24 I Just Planted One Right On Her Lips | A Music Junkies Podcast with David Barbusci
Memoires of a Modern Marriage was where it started and it may have been LOCO because nobody cared.  So Liz and Dave decided to call their new Podcast We Say Weird Shit.Dave Barbusci - the name is Bar-Boo-Chee - spoke to putting his playlist together and it was like a SLIVER in his side that almost ended him up in therapy.  And doing this on a SATURDAY NIGHT or a BLUE MONDAY is not the best time to do it.  You end up coming out of this like an ASTRO ZOMBIES member.How many words do you know from INFORMER?  Dave says "Informer".  And he was not thinking that it was a mating song (lie).  There was a friend that was a pseudo-gangster guy, and a friend of his older sisters who taught him how to dance.  Relating a song to memory.  Can Dave dance?  Ask him to JUMP.   That may be the extent of it.  And he wore the entire wardrobe backward.Although Dave felt like a MISFITS member at times and was going to do silly things in High School, he had the intelligence to realize that there is a TIME TO PASS on that thought to save his popularity?  or loss thereof.What a wonderful guest.  His memories are relatable and honest, and entertaining.Very amazing information about Dave is below.  Great fun.A hilarious conversational podcast between a middle-aged, blue-collar husband and wife covering many different life struggles, sex, and nostalgia.

S02 E23 My Therapist Tells Me I Can't Do That Anymore | A Music Junkies Podcast with Kingsley
Kingsley has an amazing voice with such great stories.  I bet YOU DIDN'T know that her first song was about finding out someone loved her but wasn't in love with her.  She said, at least he was honest.  She held her feelings to put into the song.   That experience was like THERAPY and made Kingsley learn more about herself.There was this one song that had Kingsley FALLIN' in love with singing and it was then she knew she wanted to be on stage.  She had a lot of encouragement from her mother to pursue her dream.So many singers write about LIFE AFTER YOU LIVE and share experiences that you can resonate with as a listener.   When Kingsley is BURNIN' UP she writes her best songs.  Kingsley loves herself, and it's great BABY when you find yourself and live who you are.To GET BACK to who you are, the person who has to save you is yourself.  Kingsley's video for THERAPY was all about that.  A must-watch.Who is her inspiration?  ALICIA KEYS.  Her favorite video she created?  I'M FINE.What a beautifully talented artist, singer, and songwriter.  This episode is a must-listen-to.To learn more about Kingsley, go to www.iamkingsley.comMore about Kingsley:Growing up in the shadows of Chicago, Kingsley was raised to the rhythms of house music. The third eldest daughter of eight, she demonstrated a strong desire to perform and sing from an early age. She sang before she could talk, belting out Disney tunes and performing for family and friends. She joined the choir when she was 8 and taught herself to play guitar and piano. By the age of 10, she started a family band with two of her sisters called, Heart filled. Inspired by The Jonas Brothers, Kingsley wrote and produced her music to match their memorable iconic pop style.During 2020, a year plagued with the hardships of covid and social inequality, Kingsley was fortunate to keep her music career afloat when so many other artists could not.  Teaming up with a group of Black American females, she managed to produce the inspiring “I’m Fine” video. The entire cast and crew for the video, including the director, choreographer, camerawomen, photographers, stylists, and dancers were Black-American women from Portland. In addition, she landed a brand partnership with black own local makeup company, Event Cosmetics, and released her album, Crying On Holiday in May of 2021!Watch the full episode on YouTubeCheck out the Playlist on SpotifyFollow us EverywhereMake sure to HIT that LIKE BUTTON and SUBSCRIBE to our Channel to be notified of new episodes! Please share our pageA new EP is out every MONDAY at 12 pm Rock on! Music JunkiesSupport the show

S02 E21 Who Needs Boybands When There is Madonna | A Music Junkies Podcast with Elisha
Elisha picked music that she just liked.  Some have meaning, some don't because she's a dancer.  So not all of the dancing music has meaning except for the beat.  She loves dancing, has danced competitively, and only pole dances at the bar.  LOLMarried 17 years, she still likes SEX ON THE BEACH yet acts LIKE A VIRGIN.  Elisha was a BASKET CASE when she hurt herself and had a gash on the toe that went to the bone from hitting a boat prop swimming the night she met with her future husband.  Not because of her toe, but because she didn't get to have SEX ON THE BEACH.LOVE IS having a partner who remains calm and romantic.  "I COULD NOT ASK FOR MORE", Elisha feels, except maybe if he would do laundry as well.Elisha loves dressing up, being VOGUE-ish, and also having FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES, having THE business-like LOOK, and also GETTING DRUNK ON A PLANE.  A mishmash, as she says.  And she loves "MAKING MEMORIES OF US."  That's what life is about.Words of wisdom - strive to be happy and stay true to yourself.  Don't do what goes against your inner being or gut.Fun times - SWEET DREAMS are made of these.  Thanks, my friend, Elisha, for being my guest.  Great, fun stories.View this full episode on YouTube, listen on Spotify,Follow us everywhere Make sure to HIT that LIKE BUTTON and SUBSCRIBE to our Channel to be notified of new episodes! If you would also like to share our page, I will be very grateful!!New EP is out every MONDAY at 12 pm Rock on! Music JunkiesSupport the show

S02 E20 Music Flowing From The Veins of Montana | A Music Junkies Podcast with Brett Koolik
DID YOU FORGET AGAIN?  Yes, Brett forgot what his playlist was, which was fun because it makes it more interesting.Seeing the MONTANA SKY was a pinnacle moment for Brett and inspired that song and his album.   HONEST, if he could be any singer he would be Freddie Mercury.  (trivia - Freddie's original name was Farrokh Bulsara)What was the name of the song Brett graduated to?  IDK or don't think we had one, was his answer. :)DOUBLE TAKE!  Brett could not believe that I reached out to Chris Sligh and that I invited him to my show, and that he agreed.  I had to repeat it.  Yes, it was through something Brett posted on Instagram. When in doubt, pass.  This is the best advice Brett has ever had and it was from his grandfather.  Useless talent?  Brett can do a backflip.   Brett shares about when there was NOTHING LEFT, and he spoke his THOUGHTS OUT LOUD about how it was for his ex, who never did anything wrong.   Beautiful song.Favorite song to perform?  IDK.  Seriously, that is the name of the song.  What's behind the story of CAROUSEL?  Listen to find out.  Brett has never had the chance to share it before.  He was also upset there weren't more sexual questions.   Next time. Words of wisdom?  Keep making the same kind of music, don't let that change.Click here to follow Brett KoolikMore about my guest:Brett Koolik is a Vanderbilt University alum and Nashville artist and behind-the-scenes hitmaker. A triple-threat singer/songwriter/producer, Koolik’s heartfelt storytelling and sophisticated sense of melody define his orchestral pop sound. Initially studying biomedical engineering, Koolik embraced his passion for music, and his gift for toplining and production drew attention from music industry heavyweights — with his 2017 single “The One I Need” finding its way to a TV star and aspiring pop artist. With comparisons to legendary artists Jack Antonoff and Jon Bellion, Koolik is setting the stage for breakout success. The 22-year-old artist's debut EP ‘Paradise Valley Fault Line’ will release this summer, and he will be headlining the ‘Culdesac and Camp Tour’ which will roll up into summer camps and neighborhood culdesacs across Southern, Northeast, and Midwest U.S. cities in Summer 2022.“I have ADHD and it’s sometimes hard for me to focus on things — but with music, I get lost in it,” explains Koolik. “There is an analytical component to audio engineering which I think is so cool. From the kick drum to the snare and synthesizers, I love when everything comes together to make that final perfect sound.”Watch  the episode on YouTube Playlist on Spotify Follow us everywhereMake sure to HIT that LIKE BUTTON and SUBSCRIBE to our Channel to be notified of new episodes! Please share our pageNew episode is out every MONDAY at 12 pm Rock on! Music Junkies Support the show

S02 E17 Embrace What Makes You Different | A Music Junkies Podcast with Altamadum
Great to have Altamadum back again sharing about their new single UPON YOURSELF.  What was tedious about the last month?  Making it perfect.  Going from a ballad-driven album, they moved more into Hard Rock on this one with more electronic sounds.   Sam, Brendan,  Cam, and James work together closely with Russ and are excited about the new direction.  They are not trying to RUN FROM YOU with their new genre, but rather providing a fresh new sound.   It's definitely not BREAKING THE LAW of the music world to do this.  Change is good while keeping that ALTAMADUM feel.With Sam's passion for space, APOLLO was born, and it was the first one they recorded with Russ, their Producer and Sound Engineer, and James' uncle.HAIL TO THE KING of solos, Cam.  We chuckled about how long his solos are when they are on tour.  Cam chuckled and said it simply is because he forgets to cue the guys by turning around. :)  The favorite song they created?  Apparently, it's coming out on their 6th album.  So stay tuned.You can find out more about Altamadum and their albums as well as their social media presence by visiting www.altamadum.com.MORE:Altamadum was born in Thunder Bay, ON in the fall of 2007. Lead guitarist Cam Thomas & drummer Brendan Byers approached classmate James Cole, with the hopes of him filling in on bass guitar. The trio carried on writing mostly instrumental pieces for the next few months. Cole suggested that Sam Mucha come on to sing for the group. Cole received a demo of Mucha singing & was impressed by the singer’s diversity & range. Cole presented the demo to the band & they agreed to have Mucha come tryout on the condition he be able to play rhythm guitar, Mucha accepted. At this time, the band decided to adopt the name 'Altamadum' as the new title. The group’s first show took place at their High school for a Christmas Concert in 2007.  The four carried on for the next two years playing mostly covers of classic & new rock, mostly in local bars, clubs & parties.In the fall of 2010, the band entered the local “Last Band Standing” competition.  The band continued writing & performing, highlighted by winning Last Band Standing in 2011. This was followed immediately by the band moving into Elder’s Thunder Sound Studio to begin production on their debut album “We Are…”. The band reduced the number of shows they had been playing in 2012 to put all focus on the development of the C.D.Entering 2014, the band began to work on a 2nd album titled 'Levels' which is due out in the Spring. They embarked on a summer tour of Ontario playing a total of 7 dates. Upon arriving back home, Altamadum was offered their first magazine appearance in L.A. Shortly after this the band was approached to work with a few international media outlets. Among them was our record label “From the Depth Entertainment”.Altamadum released “Anybody Out There (EP) – (2017), A Monument to Time (2017), Through Motion Chronicles (2019), Born in The Afterglow (2020)” and their upcoming album “In My Blood” set for release in 2022.

Fake Rock Records Twitter handle owner, Chris Fake, shares so much including loving music and being an extra in a Kevin Costner and Jennifer Gardner film in Draft It.  What was he?  A party attendee and a referee and holding up their pants while running.  Did he meet them?  He did Jennifer, and he says she was just a sweetheart.  Made him ADDICTED TO LOVE!Chris' playlist is a trip down memory lane.  He likes all kinds of music.  His Twitter did not start in 1999, it did start just recently.  Why did he start it?  He's not quite sure.   The posts are hilarious and SUPERNAUT real.  They are Fake Rock Records, yet with some of our views of truth behind the creative posts.   Listening to VAN HALEN created an ERUPTION where Chris felt like he just wanted to throw, not ANOTHER BRICK ON THE WALL,  but his guitar!!  across the room trying to figure out how to play it on his guitar.   It was so different and amazing.  Chris also plays the keyboard, is single, has two daughters, and is not dating.  When he does date, it's like a ROCK AND ROLL FANTASY.  He likes down-to-earth girls with the same interests.   Maybe a COME ON EILEEN type of girl?   Doesn't sound like he wants a BARRACUDA. :) Words of wisdom?  Go with the flow...  chill out!Find him on Twitter @cmoda1980 Trivia break: From songmeaningsandfacts.com, this song's meaning is: "Come on Eileen” is a teenage love song, as the lyrics imply that Eileen is just now blossoming into a woman, and the singer appears to be one of her peers. The majority of the song is dedicated to his attempts to – succinctly put – get intimate with her. However, he does not perceive this as an act of lust. Rather he believes that his love for her will endure forever."More about my guest, Chris:My name is Chris Modarelli. I went to art school, worked as a graphic designer, and loved music. I play guitar, and keyboards and once appeared as an extra in a movie with Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner.

S02 E11 Dreaming of a Small Prairie Town | A Music Junkies Podcast w/ Tanner Gordon
Singer and songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta,  Tanner is my guest in this Podcast.  He challenges his listeners.  I love that.  And with over 250 shows across CANADA, you may ask, how does he challenge his listeners?  Let's move forward...Each song that Tanner has composed has a story and is deeply personal.   The TIME Tanner writes is usually after waking from a dream.  That his parents were SAFE in Vegas when the shootings happened, Tanner and his BROTHER were relieved.   These experiences transfer OVER into his songs.  Tanner explains the story behind LOSE MY MIND which is a wonderful tribute in part to his grandmother who had Alzheimer's, something, he says, many families are struggling with.  Tanner tells of a recurring dream of him being in a small town and walking in fields, although he never lived in a small town.  They had stopped for a while and did START AGAIN, which allowed him to get back to his concept writing.Tanner's words of wisdom - too young musicians, keep writing your songs and don't half-ass anything.Check out Tanner's amazing talent by visiting Tanner Gordon.Overview of my guest:Tanner is bringing it all back to where it started. The new album features Tanner’s signature melancholy lyrics and brooding acoustic undertones. At the same time “Start Again” pushes Tanner to new depths vocally, lyrically, musically, and stylistically. Pushing new boundaries and challenging the listener to think of their memories and how time shapes who we are. Since his debut album in 2008, Tanner has gone on to perform over 250 shows across Canada. Tanner has been the frontman of “The Unfortunates” since 2009, releasing 4 albums, completing a National Tour, named Sonic Band of the Month, and in 2020 winning “W.A.M Album Of The Year” and in 2022 his song "Start Again" was named to the "World National Indie Radio's Best Songs of the Year"Watch the Full episode on YouTube  Download Playlist on Spotify Follow us everywhere  Make sure to HIT that LIKE BUTTON and SUBSCRIBE to our Channel to be notified of new episodes! Please share our pageNew EP is out every MONDAY at 12 pm Rock on! Music Junkies Support the show

S02 E10 The Music of Overcoming Sex & Love Addiction | A Music Junkies Podcast with Brianne Davis
Interestingly enough, Brianne already had a playlist, having created one for her book!  What a wonderful episode with Brianne, sharing her experience being on True Blood.  She speaks to the camaraderie.  We then move on to being a sex and love addict and having narcissistic tendencies.  FUCKYOUNOAH speaks to that narcissism and is reflected very much in her main character Roxanne in her novel Secret Life of a Hollywood Sex & Love Addict.We moved on to discussions of the disconnection occurring due to Social Media, and the false reality of relationships built over those platforms.  "MY STRANGE ADDICTION included hoarding people - finding people and falling in love with them even when it was going sour," Brianne explains.  Almost like keeping a JAR OF HEARTS.   She is 12 1/2 years recovered from being a sex and love addict herself, which was why she wrote her novel. To cut the ties is not THE END OF EVERYTHING.  You have to make that decision with NO HARD FEELINGS.  It's about letting go.Brianne felt the "I HATE U, I LOVE U" reflected how she felt about herself and had to surrender.  She describes it as torture.This compelling episode is a must-listen-to.YOU'RE THE INSPIRATION to many, Brianne.  Thank you for sharing your story.Amazon:  https://amzn.to/2MjsjvL\Website:  https://secretlifenovel.com Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/secret-life/id1521171499Instagram:@thebriannedavis@secretlifenovel@secretlifepodcast Tik-Tok: @the.briannedavis   More information about my guest:From bringing compelling characters to life on screen as an actor, calling the shots behind the scenes as a director and producer, lending her thoughts and opinions to the podcast airwaves, and even penning her debut literary work, Brianne Davis has emerged in the entertainment industry as a powerhouse female creative in 2022.Thriving behind the camera, as much as in front, under her production company Give & Take Productions, Brianne has produced three films while also directing “The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story” and “Deadly Signal.”With over 12 1/2 years of recovery as a Sex and Love Addict, Brianne hosts the popular personal journal podcast “Secret Life.” The podcast launched in August 2020 and features inspiring true confessions from an eclectic group of guests, unpacking a plethora of taboo topics.
