The Tour Bus Music Show - Episode# 42 - Interview And Music With Familiar Sin From Orlando, FL
Some dishes are best served RAW and there’s nothing closer to raw than rock bands. The power, the message and the music has been delivering that message for a long time. With all of the changes and styles in today’s music, it’s good to see that the message that has always been the backbone of rock music is not lost on a younger generation of musicians. Being outspoken, loud, blunt and unforgiving is in the very essence of what makes up some of the best rock bands of all time and it is what gets the message across. Familiar Sin from the Orlando, Florida area is one of those bands. Not only do they play the music, but they live the life. Founded in 2009 the band has spread their own brand of whisky and women fueled original rock music around the nation. I had a chance to catch up with them a few weeks back for a candid, if not “revealing”, interview with the band. In our time together they paint a real picture of life on the road as a rock band bringing the party and all the debauchery that comes with it. They also share 4 of their songs with us to serve as the anthem living life on your own terms and to remind us that being a little bad can feel so good. Welcome Tour Bus Music Show listeners and Leather Ladies around the world, this is T. Mic, your host and this is episode# 42 where again we will be featuring Familiar Sin from Orlando, Florida. Before we get to the interview I just wanted to bring to up to date on what will be going on in the next few weeks here on the Tour Bus. We are currently working on bring you some great interviews this season and we invite you to join in the fun in you are going to be in Louisiana within driving distance of Baton Rouge and Lafayette, LA in mid-March. We be on location at The Varsity Theater in Baton Rouge, LA on March 15th shooting a video interview with Nonpoint that day and will be at their show that night filming and shooting photos at their show with Hinder. So join us at the Varsity Theater that night for a great show, we’d love to meet up with all of our Tour Bus Listeners there! The next day, March 16, we’ll be at The Station in Broussard, LA where we will be attending CrouchStock. This is a concert featuring bands from 10:30am to 10:00PM that will feature both local and national touring and recording artists such as Sevendust, Pop Evil, Trapt, Candlelight Red, CrackJaw, Digital Summer and many more. Then at 10:00 starts an after party in the club that’s not to be missed. Remember to get your tickets early because this event WILL sell out! We’ll be there doing video interviews with several bands including Sevendust and Candlight Red and will be bringing them to you in the coming weeks and of course we would love to meet you there as well!

Familiar Sin is: CJ – Vocals Chris – Lead Guitar Caveman – Bass Josh – Drums You can find out more about Familiar Sin at: http://www.reverbnation.com/familiarsin and connect with them on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/familiarsin Familiar Sin’s Bio: When you think about rock and roll, does “Sin” not come to mind? Well, the Central Florida based four-piece Familiar Sin is always the first to bring both. Summer 2009 is when the Sin began and they haven’t looked back since. “The reason we started Familiar Sin is so we can Use Our Demons and Make Them Work for us”, says the front man CJ Orazi. Fueled by honey flavored whiskey, greasy rock and dirty women, they bring the party with them wherever they go, leaving a tattoo of their testimony. Familiar Sin IS getting down to the business of Jamming and Preaching the Gospel of celebrating good old fashioned “Sinning”. This band lives its name and plays from experience. Managed by Mind’s i Entertainment, look for big things in the future from Familiar Sin. And ask yourself, “Am I a Sinner”? See you at the next show.... Familiar Sin.

The Tour Bus Music Show - Episode# 41 – Jasmine Cain From Nashville, TN
Born To Be Wild… More than a song, more than the theme of a culture, and more than a way of life. It brings visions of life on your own terms, a sense of freedom and adventure. It could also bring to mind the living embodiment of the song in the remarkably talented and lovely Miss Jasmine Cain. Born in the heart of the iron horse territory; Sturgis, South Dakota, her life is the story of how hard work combined with talent can lead to a successful and rewarding music career, all without a record label pulling her strings. Jasmine’s raspy, soulful voice and gypsy sprit weaves a spell that can enrapture the mind and entangle the heart as your listen to her singing stories that feel like they come from your own life. Combine that with her killing looks and disarming personality and you understand why after talking to her for five minutes you feel like you’ve known her your whole life. She’s friendly, down to earth and has a quick wit. But when she takes the stage in what is often more than crowds of 1000 to 5000 or more her stage presence burns hotter than the bright lights she performs under. Welcome everyone to Episode# 41 of The Tour Bus Music Show. I’m your host T. Mic and it was my privilege to interview Jasmine Cain a few weeks back and I have to say it was one of my favorite interviews I have done in the over 40 shows of The Tour Bus Music Show. Normally our interviews can last from 20 to 30 minutes or so when I realized that towards the end of what was more of an interesting and enlightening conversation rather than interview, it astounded me that we had at that point been talking for almost an hour. It was a frank and honest conversation about her life, her experiences, the challenges of maneuvering successfully through the crazy business end of a music career, our mutual love of music, playing bass, singing and motorcycles. One thing I learned about her in our conversation that behind her warm & charming personality is a brilliant songwriter and musician with a knack for drawing in support, endorsements and recognition of her talents. She is the current JPF Female Artist of the Year and Nashville’s Music City Mayhem two –time Female Rock Vocalist. She also hold a total of 8 JPF awards - the most awards ever to be awarded to any one artist from the JPF Association. I just wanted to let you know about a few things going on here at the Audios Maximus Network and things happening in the coming weeks here on the Tour Bus Music Show. As we announced last week, we will be re-launching another music show of ours that has been on hiatus for some time. The On Stage Music Show will soon be back on the air with lots of great music and interviews with a number of very talented artists and groups from other music genres such as blues, lighter rock, jazz, acoustic and lots of other styles of music. The Onstage Music show will be back on the virtual air, as it is of the internet in mid-March and will be posted bi-weekly. We’ve got some great talent lined up and ready to bring to the world. You will be able to find out more after March 3rd by visiting us at www.amnpodcast.com/theonstagemusicshow. We will also be re-launching our Nue Muzik on the Double Planet show where for an hour per show, we will feature just the music from artists heard on The Tour Bus Music Show and The Onstage Music Show. Nue Muzik On The Double Planet will go live in Mid-April of this year. We also have a big surprise for a new music show that we are currently working on that may launch as early as summer 2013. It is something that has had a tremendous popularity in the past and is still in high demand today. There are still lots of details and legality’s to work out before we can announce exactly what it is, but if we are successful in pulling it off, it will be worth the wait, so stay tuned here to The Tour Bus Music Show where we will be telling you more about this in the near future. So it’s sufficient to say that we have a lot of great music shows coming in the near future and you will be able to subscribe to all of them soon, we’ll be letting you know how and where real soon. Stay tuned to the end of the show and we’ll tell you about some great contests we will be having starting in March where you can win some cool prizes such as Autographed CD’s from some of the groups that have been on The Tour Bus Music Show on past episodes. You can find out more about Jasmine Cain by visiting her website or connecting with her online at: www.jasminecain.com www.facebook.com/jasminecainrocks www. twitter.com/jasminecainrock Jasmine Cain’s Bio With so many miles behind and so many miles left to travel, Sturgis, SD, native, Jasmine Cain, has paved a way for female rockers in the motorcycle culture. Current JPF Female Artist of the Year and Nashville's Music City Mayhem two-time Female Rock Vocalist, she has set the standard and raised the bar. Living her life through her songs and gypsy spirit like a modern day Janis Joplin, she is a ghost on the road sitting next to you as you take your own musical journey. With three self-released albums ("The Inside" 2004, "Locks & Keys" 2008, "Highway Prophet" 2011) and a newly released music video for her title track single, "Highway Prophet," Jasmine Cain has sold over 20,000 albums, and gained 5,000 views in the first week of her music video alone. She holds 8 JPF awards--the most awards ever to be awarded to any one artist from the JPF Association. Her performances are stadium-quality rock shows to audiences of 1,000-5,000 on average. Jasmine Cain encompasses what a true artist is meant to be, taking the reins as the songwriter, lead vocalist, and bassist for her band of rebel rockers. Her songs are emotional, raw, and timeless. Her voice is a mixture of strong, aggressive, soul-filled attitude, while allowing you to feel a slight vulnerability that takes you on an emotional, super-charged ride. You can hear your own life story in every raspy note. Her natural ability to capture and hold the attention of her audience has earned her several nationally known tours as the headliner for Easyriders Bike Show & Rodeo Tour for 3 consecutive years, main act for 7 years at the Full Throttle Saloon (which has now become a TruTV series), and the official touring band for Broken Spoke Saloons nationwide. "Jasmine Cain is an old school rocker in a modern day package! Her band is loaded with great players, great songs, explosive energy and a bass playing, drop dead gorgeous lead singer who writes, records and rocks the mic on award winningsingles and heavy weight albums at every turn. This gal is bursting at the seams of the indie world ready for the biggest stages around!" -Brian Austin Whitney, Founder Just Plain Folks Music Organization (JPF) "Jasmine Cain is THE REAL DEAL! Few new artists come to mind who encompass the essence of rock n roll. Jasmine 's songs are filled with emotion as well as detail, putting you in the driver's seat as she takes you on a musical ride of imagery and diversity. With an unrepentant spirit, Jasmine Cain is ready for lift-off. Lucky for us, the lift-off is NOW!-Mac, 97.1 RQQ- Nashville's Rock Station, Music Director/Afternoon Radio Personality "In the twenty years that I have bee promoting events, the longest lines I have ever seen at a band's merch booth is at Jasmine Cain's booth. They leave the audience wanting more and that's how I measure the success of a band" says John Green, Promoter for Easyrider Events.

The Tour Bus Music Show - Episode# 39 - Interview and Music With Farewell 2 Fear From New Orleans, LA
Welcome back to The Tour Bus Music Show. It’s episode# 39 and on this show we will be featuring an interview and music with Farewell 2 Fear. Farewell 2 Fear is a 5 piece band that was launched in 2010. With members hailing from several cities, the band is based in New Orleans, LA. The band was signed to the Silent Majority Group (SMG) label in late 2012 and is currently putting the finishing touches on a new album currently slated to be released in Spring 2013. The group currently has shows scheduled across the south ranging from Louisiana to Florida with more to come in support of their new album in the summer of 2013. F2F Is: Mike Craig: Lead Vocals Bob Bearden: Lead Guitar Mojo: Guitar, Vocals Jimmy Adams: Drummer Jeremy Sevens: Bass To date the group has released a single from their previosly released EP.The chart topping hit “Fire” from that EP is currently being played in heavy rotation on SiriusXM Octane. The group has also released another single, a rocking cover version of Rihanna’s hit song “Diamonds” which has landed as Texas’ Rock 108 #20 on their top 40. As we think you will hear on this week’s episode, this band has a lot in store ahead for them and in our opinion from what we have seen so far, we think we are going to see great things for this group going forward. You can find more information of Farewell 2 Fear at www.farewell2fear.com, http://www.reverbnation.com/farewelltofear and you can also connect with them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/farewell2fear as well as on their twitter account at www. twitter.com/farewell2fear. F2F Bio (From Their Website) Farewell 2 Fear was born out of the huge black hole that mainstream rock radio left during the absence of super rock stars like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Sound Garden. Farewell 2 Fear revisits that era with big rock riffs, big choruses and big anthems for a new generation of mainstream rockers. The band has members in New Orleans, Jacksonville and Lincoln. Launched in 2010, Farewell 2 Fear was formed out of a passion for music with a message. F2F music at the core is that of “empowerment” and endless possibilities. The meaning behind the name: fear impedes all areas of our lives’, the day you say “Farewell 2 Fear” is the day you realize that you are free from any obstacle holding you back from living the life you were meant to live. Couple that message in with talented vocals, awesome writing, killer guitars, bass and drums and you have F2F. In late summer 2012 the band met former Creed, Sevendust and Paramore Manager, Jeff Hanson. F2F was immediately singed to Hanson’s ADA promoted and distributed label, Silent Majority Group. SMG is home to Tantric, Candlebox and Framing Hanley. Under the A&R direction of Hanson the band co-wrote and produced the album New Blood with Brett Hestla (Dark New Day/Creed). Farewell 2 Fear’s first single from the LP was exclusively released to SiriusXM’s Octane and debuted at number one on their playlist and landed at #8 on the listener generated “Big-Uns” countdown! The band launched lyric videos on YouTube for “Fire” and a cover version of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” in January and generated over 50,000 views in the first 4 weeks.

The Tour Bus Music Show – Episode 37 – Interview And Music With New Orleans’ Own Circle of Light
Welcome to episode# 37 of The Tour Bus Music Show. On this episode we will be doing something a little different. We will be featuring the “rebirth” of a band that was very influential on me, T. Mic, years ago when I was just an aspiring musician. The band we will be featuring is a group of musicians that were known around the southern United States and the original line up of Lillian Axe. But this is not the Lillian Axe that released records worldwide, performing in music videos on MTV and toured extensively throughout the 80’s and nineties. This is also not the current ass-kicking group of musicians that are known as the Lillian Axe of today. No, this was the original, hard rocking, take no prisoners, metal in your face 4 man group of Johnny Vines (vocals), Steve Blaze (guitar), Michael Maxx (bass) and Danny King (drums). As a phoenix reborn from the ashes of yesterday the reformed group now known as Circle of Light has recorded and released its current CD “Rebirth”. The album is comprised of 11 tracks of the band’s music from the early days. What is ironic about the album is even though the music was written 25+ years ago it sounds as fresh and timeless as if it were written in the modern rock era. The album was released on August 28, 2012 on CME Records. The interview that we did with the group was done right after the CD release party at The Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans on August 11, 2012where they performed a scorching show to a packed house. We covered the performance there as well as having the privilege to see the group in its debut performance ironically opening for Lillian Axe at Fire in Jackson Mississippi a few months before. It was surreal to see a band that had not taken the stage together since the mid 1980’s come out not only sounding as good as they did back in the day, but even better with their audience singing along to every lyric even though they hadn’t heard these songs in over two decades…amazing. Both times we saw the group the completely obliterated the audience with their energy. pounding riffs, scorching solos, and a rhythm section that could give a fleet of pile drivers and jackhammers run for their money. Along with the interview we feature four cuts off of the album in a show that comes in at just over 40 minutes. This has been a reunion a long time coming with fans waiting in the wings for it to happen. They played the anthems that rocked a generation of young southern fans in the eighties and all the while infecting the modern youth with nothing less than pure heavy metal made up of sweat, rock and 180 proof steel string poison. Sufficient to say “The Boys Are Back In Town” and hopefully won’t be going away anytime soon!

On this episode of the Tour Bus Music Show: Raw Rock Power is what powers this bus and let me tell you that after today’s show the tank is full and the bus is ready to roll. This T.Mic of The Tour Bus Music Show and our featured guest is no stranger to the Audios Maximus Network. We first interviewed him back on The Tour Bus Music Show – Episode# 7, he returned for the 2010 year end special. Heaven Below, is Fronted by Patrick Kennison on lead vocals & guitar, lead guitarist Jesse "Bawls" Billson, and rounded out by rhythm section John Younger on bass guitar & Aaron Rossi on drums, the band and their music has become a force to be reckoned with in the rock scene. Of course tonight’s featured guest is Patrick Kennison of Heaven Below! Heaven Below has to its credit: Number 1 in sales at tradebit.com, top 10 on Amazon.com New Hard Rock Release Chart, Top 20 on Music Choice." These types of recognitions are typical of veteran rock bands, but Heaven Below has already taken home these honors in the short time this Los Angeles based unit has been together. "When Daylight Dies" took the radio airwaves by storm in 2010 with syndicated radio shows such as Hard Drive and The Rock 30 were spinning the Ben Moody (Evanescence) and has since been played on 50+ radio stations across the country. Press outlets such as Hard Rock Haven have hailed Heaven Below as "the next Guns N' Roses". The New York Examiner referred to their live performances as "unbridled balls to the wall ferocity". With the buzz and momentum of the band growing, the opportunity to tour and spread the word beyond radio and internet hype has been inevitable. The band has put 4 successful club tours under it's belt, sharing the stage with major artists such as Buckcherry & Avenged Sevenfold along the way. Since the release of their most recent album “Falling From Zero” the band has had some great opportunities that have presented themselves to bring their music to an even wider audience (more details on this coming soon) as well as pairing up to perform with great bands such as Queensryche , Steel Panther, Lynch Mob and many others. Patrick shares with us on this episode what has been happening with the band, talks about the new album and some of the stories behind the music on their new album. Yes, Heaven below is going places and at a break-neck pace to be sure. They are also an exceptional rock act to see live. If they are coming anywhere near your town they are definitely a band to make the trip to see. In the meantime be sure to check out their album “ Falling From Zero” which is packed with some great tracks and a few surprises (but you will have to listen to the album to find them).

The Tour Bus Music Show - Episode# 32 - Interview And Music With Guitar Center's 2011 King Of The Blues, Jonathon "Boogie" Long
Blues… It’s roots go back to the Mississippi Delta. It has told the stories of heartache as well as life’s pleasure and pain. It’s notes forged from the soul. It’s music has been grinded out of beat up acoustic guitars on front porches on hot southern nights and burned out of electric guitars, piano’s and blues harps in dark juke joints from St. Louis To Chicago. But on today’s show we’re goin’ to Baton Rouge, LA to sit down and talk to a modern bluesman who won Guitar Center's 2011 "King Of The Blues" competition, Jonathon "Boogie" Long. In an interview that runs almost one hour we'll dig into Boogie's story of how his life has been shaped by the blues and has recently come to be one of the hottest young blues players in the South. We'll also feature 3 cut's off of his soon to be released, self-titled album, Jonathon "Boogie" Long and The Blues Revolution. The tracks we will be featuring are: Blues Revolution Bad Karma Bad Day The interview was recorded in early summer of 2012 shortly after the Baton Rouge Blues Festival.

The Tour Bus Music Show - Episode# 31 - Interview And Music With Rana And James With Legacy Of Disorder
We’ve got a great podcast show for you today. But it’s not for the timid, we’ve got Rana Freilich (Rana Frellich) and James Robinson from the New Zealand (by way of Texas) hard rock band Legacy Of Disorder. Legacy of Disorder wrapped their tour with shock rockers GWAR at the end of April and immediately hit the road again, this time touring with Fear Factory throughout May of 2012. Their sophomore album is titled “Last Man Standing” was produced by Sterling Winfield (Pantera, Damageplan and Hell Yeah) and hit the #1 position on the Most Added Record on CMJ’s Metal Radio Chart this past spring! To explain what this means I’ll quote a recent press release: The band scored 55 new adds, which means that in a week-long span, Legacy of Disorder impacted their album, 'Last Man Standing,' at radio, and more college stations reported it in their top five official adds than any other record added to new rotation. To put it in perspective, this is difficult for a well-established band to do, much less an up-and-coming one! The bands lineup is: · James Robinson – Vocals · Rana Frellich – Guitars · Jason Keill – Bass · Matt Thompson – Drum The band has been on a break-neck tour schedule for the earlier part of this year and has quite a bit more planned for later in 2012. In this podcast interview, T. Mic talks with Rana and James about the history of the band, the production of their newest album and digs in deep to really find out what makes this band tick, We talk about their recent tours with GWAR and Fear Factory and we take a look ahead at what in the near future for this hard rocking band from New Zealand. We’ll also feature several tracks from their album “Last Man Standing” that is due to be released to the public in August 2012 including Last Man Standing, Treading The Tainted Path, Break and Hell Tonight. The Full Track Listing For “Last Man Standing” is: 1. Thorns 2. Punish All 3. March To The Death 4. Last Man Standing 5. Treading The Tainted Path 6. Break 7. Hell Tonight 8. Impaler 9. Warrior Gene 10. Came To Fight It’s very easy to search for information on Legacy Of Disorder’s tour schedule, other interviews and news on the band; but for your convenience, we have provided links to the band’s sites below: Legacy Of Disorder Official Web Site Legacy Of Disorder Merchandise Facebook Reverbnation Myspace Youtube Twitter

T. Mic and I interviewed the members of Wheeler Brothers outside in Gonzales, LA. It was a beautiful Saturday morning and we were outside on the patio of a coffee shop, sitting around a table chit chatting like we’ve known them for years. They are a wonderful, talented and personable group. The five-piece act composed of Austin natives combines the gutsy indie vibe of the modern central Texas music scene with the longing strains of time-honored Texas folk. Brothers Nolan, Tyler and Patrick Wheeler met Danny Matthews at LSU where they spent their afternoons picking guitars and swapping stories in the bar rooms of Baton Rouge and New Orleans. When the brothers went back home, that’s when they added the rest of the band. In this episode we go into detail with the guys about what makes the band tick and what goes into in creating the unique Wheeler Brothers sound. We’ll also play several tracks from their album Portraits.
