About Jared James Nichols

You can’t teach the blues. It’s not something that can be codified in music books or learned on YouTube. It goes much deeper than that and it comes from the inside. It’s about the way the guitar strings are bent and the sound gets transmuted directly from a player’s soul. It’s simple: at the end of the day, either you’ve got it, or you don’t. Jared James Nichols has definitely got it. The Wisconsin-born, Los Angeles-based singer, writer and guitarist’s new LP Old Glory & The Wild Revival channels blues grit and gusto through bombastic arena-size rock ‘n’ roll. It’s raw, raucous and righteously real.

As soon as he got his first guitar at 14-years-old, the stage immediately called to Jared. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that he grew up minutes away from The Alpine Valley Resort — where Stevie Ray Vaughan performed his last show. However, no divine coincidence could truly foreshadow just how adept at the six-string he would eventually become. He personally traces the beginning of his story back to a blues jam that his mother brought him to.

“Two weeks after I got an electric guitar, I was on stage with all of these old cats from Chicago playing the blues,” he recalls with a smile. “The music immediately resonated with me. It was all about the feeling and the soul behind it. None of these guys were music nerds. They were true blues guys playing what they felt. That power and reality struck a chord in me.”

Soon, he found himself practicing for twelve hours every day. Hitting up the local jams, he ended up sharing the stage with legends including Buddy Guy, “Honeyboy” Edwards, and “Big Jim” Johnson as well as opening for Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Derek Trucks. By his 21st birthday, he had logged over 500 gigs. After a short stint at Berklee School of Music in Boston, he headed out to Los Angeles where he garnered numerous accolades at the world-renowned Musicians Institute, winning the 2010 Jerry Horton guitar contest, the 2011 Les Paul tribute contest, and the 2011 “Outstanding Guitarist” award. 2012 saw him release his debut EP, Live at the Viper Room, gaining the notice of both Guitar World and Guitar Player and inking a deal with Sony/MTV’s Hype Music Publishing. However, everything simply laid the groundwork for Old Glory & The Wild Revival.

Teaming up with Aerosmith engineer Warren Huart, Jared began working on the tunes in early 2013. Honing his voice as a guitarist, songs like the first single “Let It Go” speak through a delta-style soul with the right amount of rock bravado. “That one is a blues rock song about love and give and take,” he reveals. “It’s got its own style and it opens the door to what I’m doing”. In addition to Huart, “classic rock legend” Eddie Kramer (Hendrix, Humble Pie) has come aboard for new tracks.

Elsewhere on the LP, “Blackfoot” charges forward with a riff as sharp as a tomahawk and a whole lot of spirit punctuated by Jessica Childress of The Voice’s backing harmonies. “In Wisconsin, I was surrounded by Indian reservations and culture,” he continues. “I’d do casino and reservation tours as a kid. When I wrote the song, I was reading about all of these badass tribes. I love that spirit and vibe inherent in Native American culture. The Blackfoot were truly bad motherfuckers. That lick is what I feel their culture represented.”

On stage, it truly comes to life with his power trio rounded out by the Swedish born Rhythm Section of Eriik Sandin (Bass) & Dennis Holm (drums). Jared’s presence becomes amplified with guitar in hand. Audiences have experienced that everywhere from his performances at NAMM and SXSW to the iconic Sturgis Buffalo Chip Festival where he’s played twice alongside ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Kid Rock and the Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary in Milwaukee to his first venture across Europe and the UK this past summer.

Ultimately, he lives up to that idea of Revival in the album’s title. “I want people to get excited,” he concludes. “I want them to feel like anything is possible in this music. I want them to know great blues rock exists. If I can give someone the same inspiration I was blessed with, I’ve done something right.”

**UPDATE**

ICYMI: Watch this week’s hilarious show feat. Robbie Furze of The Big Pink here or in the player below.

About Robbie Furze | The Big Pink

Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell formed The Big Pink in 2007. Although both of music stock, their debut, A Brief History of Love, was the first collection of songs that either were really able call their own. Both from London, the genetics of The Big Pink are not incidental. Milo, the son of 1960s producer Denny Cordell, is behind the celebrated Merok label, instrumental in unleashing the mutant soul of Crystal Castles, Salem, and Teengirl Fantasy upon the world, while Furze first made a name for himself playing with industrial behemoths Panic DHH and Alec Empire. Such disparate roots speak loudly of the ambitions of The Big Pink, as they pull unexpected and marginal forms into the spotlight of a wider audience.

Having released a low-key single on unknown independent House Anxiety in 2008, the band’s rising star drew the attention of 4AD, penning a worldwide deal with the label in early 2009. Ignoring the pressure that befits such music industry hype, the band eloped to the Electric Lady Studios in New York to record and self-produce what was to become their epic debut album, A Brief History of Love. The final results were eleven stunning tracks set within a sound world that combines melody and beautiful abstract noise in a manner redolent of their eclectic musical backgrounds.

Having toured the world throughout 2009 and the early part of the new decade, the band took a break to reconvene, with their only new release in 2010 a mix tape as part of the renowned K7! mix series. The Big Pink’s second album, Future This, was released in January, 2012. Named after a skateboard company’s slogan from the ‘80s, it’s an apt title. Recorded over the summer of 2011, with ideas flowing, they worked with producer Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Friendly Fires) to help them match their high ambitions. The end result is a perfect realization of the band’s initial intentions to marry their more outre influences with a pop sensibility. The 10 tracks add more shades to The Big Pink palette, commanding attention throughout with its genius gently sinking in like all good records should. The band are currently in Los Angeles working on their third studio album.

You can listen – and watch – the world’s leading BYOB radio show live on Wednesday nights from 8 til 9 PM at our state-of-the-art all digital home: TradioV.com.

**UPDATE**

An incredible evening of live music and conversation with Lili Haydn. We covered puberty, how to find your inner funk, the importance of embracing your intuition, Anita Hill and the roots of feminism, and the civil rights movement from Martin Luther King, Jr. to #BlackLivesMatter! Watch it here or via the player below.

About Lili Haydn

Referred to as the “Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” Lili Haydn astounds with her fiery and virtuosic music and vocals. A distinguished singer, songwriter, composer and violinist, Haydn has released four critically acclaimed albums as a solo artist and has collaborated with legendary artists such as Herbie Hancock, Sting, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, the LA Philharmonic, and George Clinton, to name a few.
 
After a successful first solo album, Lili Haydn experienced a major setback. She had just moved into her Los Angeles home when she began to notice a decline in her physical and mental health. Unaware of what caused this sudden change, Haydn spent months with various experts to figure out the cause of her illness.
 
Engineers discovered the presence of the pesticide Chlordane in the foundation of the house. The pesticide had spread into Haydn’s heating and air conditioning ducts, contaminating the entire house. The musician had been suffering from toxic inebriation for months and struggled to find a cure for her significant loss of brain function. She tried everything from drug detoxes to monthly sauna sessions, but nothing worked.
 
When she eventually regained her health, Haydn remained committed to educating the public on the positive effects of music on the brain through a series of lectures on TEDx Talks, NPR, and other speaking engagements. See one of her TedxTalk here!
 
Since her recovery, Haydn has scored numerous feature films and recorded her latest album, Lililand. Her most recent full-length release is an entirely improvised collaboration with composer and pianist Bill Goldstein called Evocations.

For more on Lili Haydn visit her website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube channel and catch a very special performance on Friday, November 6th at The Grand Annex in Downtown San Pedro, CA. Tickets are available here.

**UPDATE**

ICYMI: Last week’s show feat. Shana Halligan can be viewed here or via the player below.

About Shana Halligan

Back To Me is the new album from sultry songstress Shana Halligan. Smart and sexy, the 13-track album challenges pre-conceived notions of pop music, as Shana mixes her trip-hop background with downtempo, electronic-charged modern jazz. (Check out the album in its entirety here.)

“This album is about love, loss, finding my way to happiness and peace, finding strength, owning and accepting my passion, my humanness, feeling weak, and feeling strong again,” says Shana. “Eroticism, vulnerability, fear, and the deepest gratitude I can imagine. Connection, expression and art. Saying goodbye to anyone who thought I couldn’t make it and not being afraid to let go, to just be me and all that comes with it.”

During and since her time as the lead singer/songwriter of Bitter:Sweet, Shana Halligan has sold more than 500,000 records and has accumulated over 70 album credits to her name. Other releases from Shana Halligan include her solo debut EP Paper Butterfly and 2012 album Richmond Parade.

She’s also collaborated with many major acts, including writing and recording with Serj Tankian of System Of A Down and Thievery Corporation (co-writing and performing their biggest hit in recent years “Depth Of My Soul”), and has performed at several celebrated venues across the nation, including the Hollywood Bowl, the Royal Albert Hall (London), the Bowery Ballroom (NYC) and the Hotel Cafe (L.A.). Outside of her own music, Halligan also writes for other artists and is developing a TV project that combines her love for music and passion for cooking.

Next month, Shana will perform a Back To Me release show presented by KCRW at The Hotel Café in Hollywood on Thursday, November 12, marking the first time the songstress will perform the album live. Look for Shana to tour in 2016.

**UPDATE**

Watch our show feat. Liana Maeby and Dana Gould here or in the player below.

About Liana Maeby

Liana Maeby’s accomplished debut novel, South On Highland, is a meditation on the addiction memoir. The book was initially intended to gently mock a genre the New York-born, but Los Angeles-raised author felt a deep affinity for. However, during the process of writing, Maeby soon found that the universal truths were more compelling, regardless of the comedy, tragedy, fact and fiction that conveyed them. Thus, the resulting book — which is helpfully subtitled “A Novel” for those who may be confused — very much reads like an autobiography, even though it isn’t, exactly, precisely, or at all really.

Like the novel’s protagonist Leila Massey, Maeby is an impossibly cool, witty young writer in Hollywood, with more than a dabble of experience with a variety of illicit substances. However, unlike her fictional character, Maeby’s life hasn’t imploded spectacularly after raiding a big shot executive producer’s bathroom cabinet during a potentially career-making Beverly Hills Passover soiree (yet?!?). But, in other respects, the novel does draw directly on Maeby’s experience in an entertainment capital that demands youth and experience — two qualities that are often considered to be mutually exclusive. As such, South On Highland offers brutal commentary on the sordid underbelly of a highly hypocritical industry that for the most part spits out saccharin entertainment for the masses. Read our exclusive interview with Liana Maeby on SuicideGirls.com.

South on Highland: A Novel by Liana Maeby is available via Amazon.com now!

For more from Liana, cyber stalk her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

About Dana Gould

Dana Gould is a comedian with a deep dislike of bios. He doesn’t have one on his website, nor does he have one on his Laugh Factory Page — which is erroneously entitled “DANA GOULD BIOGRAPHY” but only bears the insincere promise that there is a “Bio coming soon.” Don’t hold your breath. It’s not. The page has looked like that for almost as long as time has been recorded on the internet.

In lieu of a gushing, professionally-written bio that will assure you that Dana is both hilariously funny and enormously talented, you’ll just have to take our word for it, since he’s been on SuicideGirls Radio before and was funny as fuck! Then again, if you don’t want to take our word for it, take Liana’s; She was so impressed with his mad Twitter funnybone tickling skillz that she went through every tweet he ever wrote to compile her Top 10 Faves.

If you’re still not convinced of Dana’s ability to make you pee your pants, find out for yourself; He has a show coming up this Sunday (Oct 18th) with The Tinkle Twins, April Richardson, Steve Agee, Ali Wong, Dean Delray, and Chris Garcia at the NerdMelt Showroom in Los Angeles. Get your tickets here — incontinence guaranteed!

About Stephen Bradley

For 19 years Stephen Bradley has been performing and touring the world with the legendary band No Doubt. As a trumpeter, vocalist, and keyboard player, he has developed into a well rounded and skilled musician. Soaking all of these invaluable experiences over the years has led him to finally release his first solo EP. Entitled ‘Runaways,” the four-track EP was inspired by the transient and frenetic energy of Hollywood.

Recently relocating to Los Angeles from his home in the Bay Area gave Stephen the perspective of many who relocate to Southern California with dreams and aspirations of fame and fortune. ‘Runaways’ is an embodiment of the two faces of Hollywood.

Co-producing with the help of a young and talented producer/DJ Javan Slagle, the ‘Runaways’ EP is an amalgam of classic musical sensibilities and modern aesthetics.The pair met each other through a mutual acquaintance, and initially were performing in local venues along with projection artist Matt Meza. The project was initially called ‘Mr.Etienne’, and featured Stephen improvising over ‘chillstep’ styled instrumentals by various artists. The trumpet signal would be manipulated by Slagle in real time, and Meza would run the projections and lighting. The overall concept was to create a mood for everyone to enjoy, with the emphasis being on the music not the performer. Over time, the project evolved as it was decided by the group to create original music.

‘Runaways’ was born from the many nights immersed in the Hollywood party scene. By day Bradley and Slagle would be exploring different ways to capture this ‘modern’ sound they were looking for, and by night they would bear witness to the drug and alcohol-fueled nightlife. Within each song, there is a story either based or inspired by all of these hopeless nights.

About Padhia Avocado

“I am an artist, a writer, and a life coach, but also a flawed human with a difficult past. I share my story in hopes that I can inspire others to overcome the things that prevent ease of being. The truth is, I spent most of my life wanting to die because I didn’t understand how to live. I had no resources or skills for living an emotionally healthy life. I left home at an early age and spiraled into a deep depression that eventually consumed me. Seeking professional help, I was put on all kinds of medications. I was told to accept that my life would be about coping, yet I just never could fully accept that my fate was a lifetime of suffering.

“About six years ago, I got off all the meds and addressed everything that shaped me into the dysfunctional person I had become. I broke apart as a human in ways I could never explain. Standing there in the rubble of my life, I had only one choice… to build a new one. I use all of those experiences to help others make it to the bright side as well, as a life coach specializing in helping people find their way to freedom from darkness to a baseline state of happiness with peaks of joy.”
