Talk Music Talk with boice

Drummer and jazz artist Antonio Sanchez has a long and storied CV that just keeps getting more and more impressive. From graduating Magna Cum Laude at the Berklee College of Music to being a longtime member of the Pat Metheny Group to his Golden Globe-nominated score for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman film. The five-time Grammy winner is equally astounding as a bandleader; his most recent release is this year’s Lines in the Sand, which features his band Migration and is the Mexican-American composer’s response to our current administration’s immigration policy. Most...

Talk Music Talk with boice

There's something about YATTA that can neither be defined or contained, but is wholly familiar. It's somewhat akin to that feeling you experience when a dear friend crosses your mind and shortly thereafter they text you. In this way, the Brooklyn-based artist’s music, voice and poetry can be a comfort, yet like nothing you've ever heard. YATTA’s 2016 debut, Spirit Said Yes!, was merely a warm-up for this year's stunning WAHALA (PTP), an exploration of their many journeys that include being black and trans. [This episode features “Francis” from WAHALA in its entirety.] Visit YATTA...

Talk Music Talk with boice

Singer-Songwriter Rasha Jay instinctively knew that the path to her passion meant, as she says, writing her own story. Even if that meant shifting her focus from a career in theater or songwriting for other artists. Rasha’s intuition has led to her hard-won and exciting second EP, High Dive. Her sound is an eclectic palette of soul, rock and alternative music with that powerhouse voice always at the center of your attention. [This episode features High Dive’s title track in its entirety.] High Dive EP Release Party (August 23, 2019): Fox and Crow, Jersey City...

Talk Music Talk with boice

It's the return of Public Speaking; the electronic solo project of Jason Anthony Harris. With his third appearance on TMT, Jason’s new album, Six Golden Tumors (Floordoor Records), is the brilliant reason for the occasion. The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter and sound artist’s latest release is the outcome of his deep research into Old Testament violence and horror movies. [This episode features “A Fox with No Eyes and a Hole for a Mouth” from Six Golden Tumors in its entirety.] Six Golden Tumors Album Release Party (August 20, 2019): (with Dead Rider, A Bunch of Dead People &...

Talk Music Talk with boice

There are many reasons to admire Sir Ari Gold, besides the fact that he was knighted by a drag queen: He's been an openly gay pop singer from the top of his career for nearly two decades. Anything with his name on it, from music videos to performances, is a thrilling mix of provocation and heart. And over the past 6+ years, Ari’s been fighting cancer with a determination most people will never possess. GoldNation-Remix to Freedom, Ari’s most recent album, is his celebration of life through dance music; it features new versions of songs from his 2015 studio release, Soundtrack to Freedom....

Talk Music Talk with boice

In the ‘90s you couldn't escape the sounds of Ruffhouse Records. Their roster included the classic hip-hop of Cypress Hill, Kris Kross, Kool Keith, Fugees and Lauryn Hill. In 1989, the label was founded by Chris Schwartz and his partner, Joe Nicolo. Chris’s new memoir, Ruffhouse: From the Streets of Philly to the Top of the ‘90s Hip-Hop Charts, not only chronicles his perspective on the music business but also his oftentimes, tumultuous personal life. Throughout its pages, Ruffhouse is a prime example of someone who never gave up on his dreams. Chris continues to be a music pioneer with...

Talk Music Talk with boice

When you listen to the first Color Collage album, Pieced Together, it sounds so good you can’t help but think, This can’t get any better! Initially the solo project of Shane Conerty, the Brooklyn- based singer/songwriter decided to turn Color Collage into a full-band and proved that the debut was merely a warm-up. The first evidence is the new single (and cool video!) “Eye on You”. [This episode features an exclusive TMT four-song acoustic set with Shane on vocals/guitar and backing vocals by the Foxy Johnstons (Kim Foxen & Mel Johnston).] Visit Color Collage...

Forget triple-threat, anyone can do that, Leo Manzari is some kind of multi-threat. Tap dancer. Rapper. Singer. Actor. And who knows what else he has up his sleeve. Since he was two-years- old and started dance lessons, the D.C.-native has carved out a fantastic path filled with highlights that include performing (alongside his brother, John) under the tutelage of mentor Maurice Hines in the Lincoln Theater D.C. production of Sophisticated Ladies, an acting stint on Homeland and the featured tap dancer in Hozier’s new music video, “Almost (Sweet Music)”. Based in Brooklyn, last year Leo...

It might have taken singer-songwriter Savannah Lancaster ten years to finally realize her career in music, but the wait was worth it. Last year’s debut, Letters, was released in the winter, but Savannah’s evocative vocals against a backdrop of elegant jazz, soul, pop (or whatever she touches!) are perfect for any season. [This episode features “Better Off” and “Love is Mean” from Letters in their entirety.] Visit Savannah Lancaster online:  https://www.savannahlancaster.com           ...
