This week’s guest on TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE and returning for a second time is JAMIE ALIMORAD and you can catch the show on 10th APRIL at 8pm EST
“Jamie Alimorad has been a solo artist since 2008. He has been performing at the Boston college scene and the local club scene in the Boston area. He graduated from North-eastern University with a bachelors of science in music technology in 2010.
His first EP, Cornerstone was released in September 2010 to rave reviews. The four songs on this EP, “What You Have”, “She Is….”, “In Her Smile” all peaked #1 on the Indie 104 Top 40 chart and “Stay With Me” peaked at #3. “She Is….” Was the most played song in the history of iRadio LA.
Jamie Alimorad is proud to add to these accolades with the release of the long awaited CD Words Left Unsaid which will be set to launch in April 2012. The lead single on it new CD is “Dancing With You”. It is about realizing there’s no better feeling than being with the one you love. It has a pop/rock rhythm to it, a great dance beat and hot vocals.
The songs on Words Left Unsaid are strategically laid out to stay in step with the storyline. The energy of these songs are fun and full of happy joyful tunes. They capture the essence of this artist, creating, clean fun sing-along music that everyone in this world really needs. “
Mark and I are looking forward to having Jamie back on the show and hearing about his new album!

“Kevin Gullickson started his work in the independent music industry with his first release of a 4-song EP which received radio play in his hometown of Rochester, MN. Shortly after, he followed up with a sin-gle which received radio play in the Minneapolis/St Paul area.
Kevin travelled throughout Europe to develop his own sound and style which he later developed with a band The Blokes, which was an instant success in the Minneapolis/St Paul club scene including First Avenue. Kevin later moved to New York City where he continued writing, recording and playing the clubs as a solo musician. During the course of these years, Kevin had been contacted by 5 major record companies and 3 Grammy Award winning producers, expressing interest in his music” http://www.radio-drive.com

BIG KETTLE DRUM have been in the newsletter a lot over the last couple of weeks and this week we have more news on this awesome band.
The roots-rock band, Big Kettle Drum, is on the cusp of something big. The buzz surrounding the band has generated interest from major labels, publishers and booking agents. They have 30 days to get it together and play the show of their lives…but life happens in between…this is their story.
The band is filming a documentary of this experience and the turmoil going on in their individual lives. “Four Roads” will follow the journey of each band member in their attempt to push aside fears, obstacles and the unknown. The film will debut at the Soulfest 2012 Festival in Gilford NHand reveal the final outcome of their journey. Did they sign a major record deal? Did the lead singer’s son receive a bone marrow transplant? Did the band break up? All we can do is watch…
