Today Mark and I had the pleasure of meeting Cincinnati born SHAWN BRAY. Shawn describes himself as a very boring person….well that is not the case, far from it in fact. During the show Shawn had plenty to say! Shawn is our first non-vocalist/instrumentalist to join us on the show.
We had a nice crowd of listeners tune in live. We even had SPACESHIP DAYS who changed their days of rehearsals so that they can tune into the show live instead of the podcast! Lydia from ROSERED AND THE BUTTERFLIES said she listens to TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE over her downloads!
SHAWN BRAY, he takes pride in the fact that he has created his own sound of music, and that he is not following a trend! His music has been described as celestial electro, however for now he is sticking to Electronica. He said he is a bit like a baker, he takes a bit of this and a bit of that, and mixes it all together! Mark has a new word for Shawn, he called him a digital musicologist, he isn’t really sure if that is a word, but he likes it and I think he will patent that word! Lol
About a year ago, Shawn submitted a song to the station called RUSTY AIRWAYS, and Mark liked it so much he pinched it for the theme tune of TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE, unfortunately the royalty cheques seemed to have gone missing as Shawn says he has not received any….hmmmmm lol sorry I can’t say that with a straight face! During the show, we actually played the full version, however we kept expecting Mark to talk over it! You might not know Shawn very well but if you are an avid listener or a downloader of our podcasts you will sure know his music that’s for sure!
Anyway please take the time to listen to SHAWN BRAY for yourself, it is a fun show and I can guarantee that you will have a few laughs!
During the show we also featured three of Shawn’s songs:
ONCE UPON A MORNING
Was written in the early morning hours. I generally write most of my stuff over night and into the early morning. This one was no different but it had came together quickly and I called it Once Upon Morning as it was finished as the sun was coming up.
HYPNO LATIN GROOVE
Is a song that features latin beats which I love. I am very much into Latin and Middle Eastern rhythms and try to experiment with them in songs as much as I can.
Rusty airwaves was inspired by the fact that traditional radio does not do much to support independent music and new media outlets such as the internet has embraced the independent musician and has done so much to get our music heard.
Shawn can also be found at the following social sites
Shawn thank you for joining us on the show today. You were far from boring, in fact towards the end of the show you were really starting to open up! The animal in you started to appear! Lol A good fun show Shawn and good to see you have a great sense of humour, which judging from all your tweets I knew you would have. Mark and I wish your mother a very speedy recovery, please give her our regards!
Here are a few questions that we never had time for if you wouldn’t mind answering them for us:
Assuming you have an Ipod or some sort of personal player, if you were to turn it on now, what songs would be playing?
- The Green Children – Skies on Fire , Massive Attack – Live With Me, The Asteroid Galaxy Tour – The Golden Age, Anything from my favorite duo Phantogram.
If you were to do a music score for a movie, what type of movie would you chose and what actor would you like to write for?
- I think my music would work great in a drama. I would like Russell Crowe so it would be cool to have him in it but I also adore Mila Jovovich and would like to have her in it. Maybe both. That would be cool.
Who would you like to play or write music for?
- Wow, there are so many. I am really into Skylar Grey right now but have always wanted to do something with Nadia Ali.
What advice would you give to young musicians just starting out on a musical career?
- Stay true to yourself, follow your dreams and never let anyone get in your way.
What plans or goals do you have for 2012?
- I hope to have a new album out with some vocals on it and to have my publishing and licensing company going full throttle.
During the 2 hour show we also played the following artists which I will add are all new to our rotation:
OBLIVIOUS SIGNAL – THE INFLICTED SHAME
ORDER OF VOICES – DON’T FALTER
LUCKY MUNK – THINGS WE DIDNT LOSE
STEPHEN LYONS – FALL
MIMI PAGE – COLORBLIND
TERRY SPRINGFORD- PRETTY GIRLS
IMAJ – BLUSH (Next weeks Guest)
Twitter Tuesday is an interactive show. Here are a few of the tweets:
