I hope this week finds you all well!
A lot of great musicians seem to be coming out of Canada these days and this week BUTTERFLIES RADIO will be featuring two Canadian bands!
TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE 27TH MARCH 2012 8PM EST (for me in Australia that’s 8am Wednesday and for those of you in Europe I think its 1am) Our special guest this week from Canada are GLO
Multi-talented, Canadian alt-rockers GLO are excited to announce the release of their latest musical offering entitled No One Hears Me. The album is a strong blend of unyielding melodic prowess with catchy, fast-paced anthems, as well as beautiful flowing ballads that redefine the modern rock genre. No One Hears Me was recorded with the help of platinum-certified record producer John Nathaniel. It is a libidinously sweaty commingling of three extraordinarily talented musicians and is not to be missed. No One Hears Me will be released in April 2012. http://www.glo-music.com
Bill HEMP from DYMAXION VEHICLE was our guest on last week’s show. Another great show of course! If you missed it you can listen or download the podcast from http://www.butterfliesradio.com/home/twitter-tuesday-live/
SAM BRADLEY is the featured guest this week in the INDIE ARTISTS SPOTLIGHT presented by KIVA JOHNS ADKINS. This is a pre-recorded show and airs on MONDAY 26TH MARCH 2012 8PM EST
Sam was born in London and educated everywhere from Hong Kong to Nashville. He left school at sixteen and the idea of being a singer, songwriter and artist was born. Part of his inspiration to make music his full-time passion came from observing fellow Londoner and close friend Marcus Foster at work, and another part came from performing with his mother, Canadian folk musician Lee Lindsey. He started by recording music at home and performing at open mic nights but in 2008, Bradley’s anonymity was quickly revoked. His song “Too Far Gone” was included in the first Twilight film as a gentle compliment to the movie’s dinner scene. Co-written by the film’s lead actor Robert Pattinson, the track made its way onto the film’s soundtrack via Pattinson’s version entitled “Never Think.” It provided the jumping off point to begin production on Sam’s first formal release. With the release of Zuni, Sam notes “I definitely feel pressure now that I have an attentive audience.” http://www.sambradley.com
