Music industry update | California, USA | Indie artist, Megan Mcduffee

Would you be considered a peeping Tom in modern society if you fancied nothing more than to get a sneaky peep behind the curtains whenever your favorite artist or band is in town and maybe even get a few pics or video clips as well to take home with you and keep as memorabilia? When does a hardcore fan cross the line and become creepy? Is there an actual line or is it just an arbitrary line that appears once the subject starts feeling uncomfortable? What if you made sure they were fully dressed and nothing was showing or happening every time before peeping if there was a sure way to pull that off? What if your favorite artist is Cardi B or someone who is never fully dressed? Sigh!

 Well guess what? It turns out you probably wouldn't nowadays. Over the past few decades it has become the norm to peek behind curtains, everyone's doing it. In fact fans are being invited behind the scenes more so than ever before now so much so that if you were a creepy fella or lady who loved nothing more than the thrill of not getting caught seeing something you shouldn't be seeing there wouldn't be very much excitement left there for you anymore, if any at all. Behind the scenes clips are an exciting way to get insights into the real personas of our favorite entertainers and sometimes could even result in more excitement than the actual content - the songs, the albums, and shows we fell in love with them for. The only prerequisite is that you wait to get invited to peek before peeking, he-he-he. But wait, what if you assumed the invitation was implied? Aaarrrghh!!! Alright let's move on, head hurts now. 

Megan McDuffee has always been keen to show her fans what's going on behind the scenes since she stepped out from behind the curtains working as one of San Francisco's top independent music composers for television, film and gaming to become a recording artist, and fans have enjoyed and cherished her openness every step of the way. She recently released some exciting behind the scenes clips showing bloopers from the video shoot for her single "13th Hour" which was released earlier this year. Go ahead, check it out below, no one's judging you here, you know you want to. Go on, take a peek. Besides, you were invited. 

... "But wait, what was all that talk about peeping Toms then?" you ask yourself while scratching your head gently. Just the result of a mixture of guilty conscience and confusion in just the right amounts to be considered as neither. Let's just say some clearly labeled security cameras were recently installed and people have been doing stuff right in front of them. It's like they want to get caught. Long story short, labels have been made bigger and clearer, camera wasn't moved.

Music industry update | Ohio, USA | Indie artist, Mal V Moo

The hardest part about the music industry today is the sheer amount of competition there is, especially in popular club and dance music genres like EDM, R&B and hip hop. To survive in today’s music industry, artists have to come up with creative new ways to generate revenue or simply have other talents and avenues to express themselves creatively and/or make money. 

Mal V Moo made her name locally as one of Ohio, USA’s top new artists to watch back in 2013 when she released the single “Bait” which featured fellow Ohio artist Mike AZ and reintroduced fans to the essence of a vocal performance style that was quickly fading away at the time, and is now almost non-existent as more and more artists refuse to actually "Sing" but rather opt for the new and controversial vocal performance style artists like Drake made popular, where they sing, whine, talk, cry, rap and do spoken word all at the same time while calling out all their fake friends and pointing out each and every one of everybody else's flaws while simultaneously pouring champagne over a bunch of slow clapping badonkadonks and blowing smoke into the microphone before arrogantly proceeding to metaphorically ejaculate into pour unsuspecting listeners' ears without their knowledge - what happened to R&B right? Will we ever hear real love songs again or are ass eating anthems the only future R&B music lovers have to look forward to? Sigh! 

Anyway, where were we? Ah yes, many of Mal's fans were recently shocked to discover that she is also a children’s book author and has recently published her first book “Little Lamb’s Sweet Learn To Write Workbook”. On the 7th of July, the book went live on Amazon and selected popular online book retailers and is available in digital format as well as paperback. [Buy book below]

Music industry update | California, USA | Indie artist, Ava Lemert

The good times we’ve all missed so badly are slowly returning. It’s time for us to get our oldest looking, dustiest sneakers; our tightest, most torn jeans and our dirtiest t-shirts with the most holes; and head out again as many nights as possible every week to paint the town red and load our bodies with toxic chemicals that make us feel so good, too good even sometimes - so good, in fact that some people may feel the urge to hug a toilet bowl afterwards while moaning, groaning, doing dirty things to it, calling it God and making promises they'll never keep. No one likes to feel that "good" obviously, so let's be moderate as we all emerge from hiding ey? wink, wink. 

Yes, live music is back; clubbing is back; and our favorite watering holes are pouring out liquor again. You are not dreaming, slap yourself two times and see if it hurts. Now twist your nipples really hard and then pull suddenly while snapping your fingers, and see if that hurts. See?

A crowd favorite at some of California’s top live soul music venues, Ava Lemert is an artist whose music is perfect for these unprecedented times. Smooth, calming and easy on the ears, her songs set the perfect mood for those who like to take life easy and sip their wine really slowly. Located on Fair Oak Boulevard in Sacramento,  Ettore’s is one of the various venues she frequents. They hosted a few outdoor, socially distanced gigs during the heat of the pandemic but they are slowly getting back to full capacity again. A few weeks back, Ava announced a series of live dates at the elegant California entertainment and dining venue beginning on the 21st of August at 6:30 PM. Concert tickets, subsequent live dates and venue information are available on the Skunk Radio Live Events platform.

Back in June, critically acclaimed indie rock sensation Frank Palangi released what has been called his most exciting record to date. Hailed left, right and center by even the most discerning rock music critics and fans, it was one of several highly anticipated tracks that the fast-rising independent rock star, who made his debut just over a decade ago, has released this year; and a record that according to many could be the “big one” that could end up catapulting him into the big leagues alongside top rock artists and bands like Day of Fire, who he worked with in the early days of his illustrious indie music career. 

 Sadly, just over 2 weeks after the release of the record, the New York star’s music recording studio was hit by lightning and burned down to the ground. Financial support and well wishes immediately started pouring in from fans; and fellow musicians have even hosted benefit concerts and created crowdfunding campaigns to help. Frank has also recently set up a crowdfunding campaign of his own and is appealing to fans and supporters to donate to help his rebuild his studio. Please visit Frank Palangi on Go Fund Me and if you can’t donate share the campaign with friends so that word can get out there and we can sooner rather than later see this highly promising independent rock star back in the studio recording again and playing his part in keeping real rock music in its most intrinsic form alive in his very special way.
