Chart Attack Review below:
Sin Dealer – Dying to Live – CD Review
By Jason Daniel Baker

  Vocalist Eric Kuthe, guitarist Ron Bechard, bassist Frank Sargeant and drummer Jeff Zurba form Sin Dealer, a Toronto based quartet locally considered one of  Toronto’s finest metal bands.
  Drawing upon the vast wealth of long experience on the Toronto music scene the members of the combo unleash a sound that is raw yet paradoxically polished at  the same time.
  Comprised of former members of bands like Edwin, Sea of Green, Sons of Otis and Plasma Blast, the respective pedigrees are indeed impressive but would be  immaterial if they couldn’t play together as smoothly as they do.
  Comparisons are too numerous to mention and ultimately pointless. This outfit is such a blending of different influences the term “Sludge Metal” is used and I do not  think it is misapplied.
  Sin Dealer are an absolutely awesome band in my opinion, and I really think their sound is topflight with great riffs and attention to melody. One sees plenty of heads  bobbing to their rhythm at their shows. True metal fans fully appreciate the talent of this group…………………..

Sylvia Tyson in Quartette 2007

October 29, 2009
sylviatyson_downatthefair_2009

CD Cover

Artist: Quartette
Release: Down at the Fair
Year: 2007
Chatham Connection:  (Sylvia is from Chatham-Kent. (Born Sylvia Fricker September 19, 1940 in Chatham, Ontario)

Who:
Sylvia Tyson, Caitlin Hanford, Cindy Church, Gwen Swick

Tracks:
1. Down at the Fair
2. Twenty Shades of Blues
3. That’s What You Always Say to My Heart
4. Where Love Lies
5. All These Things Are You
6. Who’s Foolin’ Who
7. Nothing Can Make the World Right Again
8.  Tell My Lord
9.  Sing a Song of Sadness
10. My Invitation
11. Marie Antoinette
12. I Mean What I Say
13. I Can’t Wait 
    
Notes: Even after four decades of songwriting, and with over 200 songs to her credit, Sylvia says she is not a prolific songwriter. Still, “Down At The Fair” features two of her finest songs: the spiritual “Tell My Lord” (with the magnificent line, “I can tell my Lord things I couldn’t tell my mother”) and the remarkable character sketch, “Marie Antoinette.”

The latter is a story of a deluded woman working as a maid in a hotel who believes that in a perfect world she’d be the Queen of France. The song is a reminder that all around us are people whose lives we know nothing about, and some of them are quite delusional.

“When I was a kid I knew a girl who was adopted, and her name was Marie Antoinette,” Sylvia explains. “She truly believed she was descended from the Queen of France. I thought that was an interesting concept. The line ‘Off with their heads’ gets a laugh from audiences.”
_____

Quartette was formed for a concert at Toronto’s Harbourfront in the summer of 1993. The following year, the group received the Canadian Country Music Association’s award for best vocal collaboration. In 1995 and 1996, it garnered Juno Award nominations for top country group. An hour-long showcase on “Adrienne Clarkson Presents” on CBC-TV introduced them to an even wider audience in 1995.

SYLVIA TYSON Quick Bio

  Sylvia Tyson first made her mark in the ’60s with the folk/country duo Ian & Sylvia which recorded 13 albums. Ian and Sylvia, who married in 1964, were at the forefront of the ’60s North American folk movement.
  Following Ian & Sylvia’s breakup in 1977 as an act and as a couple, Sylvia released seven solo albums.
  In the ’70s, Sylvia hosted CBC-Radio’s roots music series “Touch The Earth,” and hosted CBC-TV’s “Country In My Soul” series.
  Sylvia received Canada’s highest civilian award, the Order of Canada in 1995. She is one of the founders, past president, and song honoree of the Canadian Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.

Shawn Daudlin – Radio Release CD (2007)

August 20, 2009
Cover
Cover

Artist: Shawn Daudlin
Release: Radio Release
Year: 2007
Type: Pop

Born: Chatham Kent Ontario Canada
Resides: Toronto area.

Tracks:
01. My Reflection In Your Eyes
02. Too High To Climb (feat. Toni Anderson)

 

Album Notes:

Apmar Music is excited to announce that two new songs are now available with the release of Shawn Daudlin’s promotional CD. Shawn’s upcoming full-length CD, which will include the two singles, will be released within the next few months.

The promotional release showcases two new tracks. ‘My Reflection in Your Eyes’ is a beautiful, acoustic driven ballad. Shawn sings about the loss of love and as we all know, love never leaves quickly, but like an unwelcome dinner guest, takes its time exiting. ‘My Reflection in Your Eyes’ recently received a honorable mention from the Billboard Songwriting Contest.

With tongue firmly held in cheek, Shawn and soul singer Toni Anderson proudly wave the break-up flag with ‘Too High To Climb’. This retro disco tune laughs in the face of a love that lasts forever. After all, some mountains are just too high to climb!

You can’t help but smile when you listen to the music of Shawn Daudlin. He is an artist whose musical influence draws upon the very roots of what music is today. From the first note sung, it is apparent that Shawn is a singer who loves what he does and has a distinct appreciation for music.

Together with Producer/Songwriter Alan Poaps (Apmar Music), Shawn has collaborated on many recording projects, writing lyrics and melodies to compliment the arrangements written by Alan. Some of Toronto’s finest players have worked with this duo. Talented musicians, who have toured with the likes of Bruce Cockburn, Holly Cole and Big Sugar, provide the riffs and grooves.

Shawn’s self-titled, debut recording, received regular airplay on radio in Germany, Denmark and Southwestern Ontario. Extensive internet promotion through radio and Pop Music fan sites have helped to create awareness of Shawn’s music and broaden his audience base.

The Laws – Ride it Out CD (2007)

July 24, 2009

Artists: The Laws
Releases:  Ride It Out
Year: 2007
Connection: John Law was born in Chatham Ontario.

John Law – vocals, guitar, mandolin
Michele Law – vocals, bass

Note: Recorded in Nashville with producer Regie Hamm.  The Laws trademark “tight-as-a-glove” harmony singing is highlighted throughout the 11 songs.

…..Cut to 2007, and John and Michele are not only husband and wife but are also partners in music, performing as The Laws and getting ready to make a strong move for greater recognition in the Americana ranks in this country behind a typically ambitious touring schedule (200-plus nights a year on the road) and a stirring new album for their own label, JML Music, titled Ride It Out. The duo’s fifth long player, Ride It Out is noticeably lacking any false notes in its compelling original songs, empathetic musicianship and emotionally charged vocal performances.

   Recorded in Nashville with producer/writer Regie Hamm, and co-written with some of Music City’s top tunesmiths, Ride It Out showcases all the Laws’ strengths. Stylistically its songs range far and wide within a roots framework. Smooth country folk powers the album opening “Am I Still the One”; “Put Some Love Into It” is a jazz -tinged frolic keyed by Michele’s saucy vocal; the guitar-mandolin instrumental “Texacadia” is a Nickel Creek-style display of assured, hot pickin’; the classic country-tinged “Too Lonesome to Cry” features lyrics as simple, direct and devastating as the Steve Earle of “Valentine’s Day” and “Hometown Blues”; and, to close things out, “Getting Over You” is a bopping little folk-flavored ditty that evinces an ironic, Steve Goodman-like sense of the absurd in its account of someone doing everything but getting over a lost love. Vocally, Michele ranges from a soothing, plaintive, Emmylou Harris-like harmony (“Am I Still the One”) to assertive, Martina McBride-style belting (“Getting Over You”), whereas John’s rich, nasally tenor bears some semblance to that of the estimable Texas craftsman and New Traditionalist pioneer Radney Foster. And despite the presence of a few other players on the album, Ride It Out has the intimate feel of a Laws stage show, where the only sounds come from the duo’s voices and instruments.

   John and Michele, who have become accustomed to living in their van (in fact, their personal possessions are in storage in Canada; they are, in essence, homeless), have made a commitment of sorts by putting down roots in Nashville, where they have rented an apartment and have signed a publishing deal with SWITR, Inc.

Not least of the Laws’ selling points is their acumen in the kitchen. They published a cookbook and have appeared on numerous cooking shows through the years, generating almost as much press for their culinary skills as for their music. They also offer shows that are part cooking workshop, part musical performance. This sprang from their determination to eat healthy while touring constantly.
Cooking or music? Music or cooking? At one point that might have been a tossup. Now, however, with the assured, resonant performances on exhibit on Ride It Out, it appears the Laws are really ready to start cooking. But not in the kitchen

 11. Forever Always Ends (Acoustic Bonus Track)

 Notes:
   This is the sophomore self-titled release through Universal Canada that spawned major radioplay for songs such as Bomb Hands, Everyday (Late November) and He Said, She Said.  That latter song earned Social Code nominations at the Western Canadian Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year and Outstanding Rock Recording of the Year, and continues to get frequent spins on the country’s modern rock radio stations.

   After sharing the stage with bands such as Fall Out Boy, The Used, Good Charlotte, Ten Second Epic and Alexisonfire, Canadian punk-rockers drop their new highly-anticipated album

 It’s more Social Code than anything we’ve ever done, asserts Nesbitt, who also designed the record’s artwork. This album is Social Code. The album, which was mixed by Arnold Lanni (Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan) and Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Hinder), netted Social Code a deal with Universal Music, which will release it on May 8. And as for all the people who told them they couldn’t do it, all the inner turmoil and all the moments of lost direction? They’re all lessons that have made Social Code, stronger, better and wiser.

Social Code Discography:
1999 Binbox – as Fifth Season
2001 Patiently Waiting – as Fifth Season
2004 A Year at the Movies
2007 Social-Code

7th Reign – Self Titled CD (2007)

June 20, 2009

Artist: 7th Reign
Home: Chatham Kent /Sarnia
CD Release: Self Titled
Year: 2007
Style: Power metal.
Local connection. Mario & Dave.

Brian Soulard: Vocals
Mario Panayiotis: Guitars
Dave Davidson: Bass
Niall Mellors: Drums

Tracks
1 Till the End 2 Defied 3 Believe 4 Dark of the Sun 5 Asylum 6 By Way of Deception 7 Lady Babylon 8 Executioner

   The band 7 th REIGN was formed in January 2005 by Marios Panayiotis and Brian Soulard. (ex- EIDOLON vocalist) They started off with one goal, to form the kind of band that they would want to hear and see live. They were not worried about current trends or past influences but instead concentrated on creating good music that would cross many themes and styles but was built on the best form of music……METAL!!
   Marios and Brian were introduced in April 2004 by MEGADETH/EIDOLON guitarist Glen Drover. Glen knew that the two were exactly what the other was searching for. It took another eight months for them to figure it out!! Once they decided that they were destined to play together they started to form the early foundation of 7 th REIGN. After writing and recording for six months they realized it was time to finish the forming of 7 th REIGN. By September of 2005 they had found the pieces of the puzzle that they needed. Drummer Niall Mellors and bass player Dave Davidson (Fuz z)  (Another Chatham boy Lyra/Tangled Puppet/Manpower/) completed the band.
  Over the next four months they rehearsed new songs and refined existing ones. In January of 2006, they played their debut gig at the Opera House in Toronto to a packed house in support of Finnish Metal band SONATA ARCTICA. The overwhelming response from the Metal crowd confirmed that the band was on the right track. Although 7 th REIGN was excited to start playing live they knew that it was also time to start focusing all of their attention on recording their debut album. During this process Fuz z informed the band that he was on the move and needed to leave the band. Although they were saddened at the news of his departure they were excited to welcome new band member Adrian Robichaud (EIDOLON). Brian and Adrian had played together on four albums and the band knew that the addition of Adrian would bring them to a whole new level of technical skill and professionalism.
   7 th REIGN is a POWER METAL band that has a great amount of technical ability and a theatrical sound. Their self-titled debut album is filled with fast double bass, shredding guitar solos, soaring vocal lines and passionate lyrics.

    It was in the Fall of 2006 when those friendly ex-magician’s of Square Root of Margaret came off of a very successful western tour of Canada, in support of their previous album “Cloud Nine Revisited.” While on a brief break from the road, SRoM’s drummer managed to cut his thumb off! Although the doctor’s were able to successfully re-attach the digits, the inner thumb needed further healing. And so the intrepid stunt-drummer set off to the eastern coast of Canada, with recovery on his mind.

   He was gone for six months. Not content to sit around twiddling their own, the other fellows in Square Root of Margaret set about writing and recording what would prove to be their most ambitious pop album to date…Teragram Photeur! 13 new songs about time and space, perception, and perspective

  Here is the Video “Hollywood Will Find A Way” from this CD. Filming and Editing:

Bryce Birkin – Bass
Nick Sennema – Drums

Tracks:
You don’t know, post hope, voice, miss Sagittarius, cellardoor, last night, hometown, damned, I try, smile

    It took the fall of 3 separate bands to create what will now be known as “Us And Omens”… Throughout these groups singer/guitarist Mike Sennema found not only good friends but 3 guys who share the same love and respect for music.
    Jammin in the early days with Bryce Birkin (bass), playing in Horrorshow with Phil Guerin (guitar) and later on living and playing with Phil Wilson (drums) in Estella Fritz has enabled these 4 musicians to get together and jam for a commmon goal… to make noise, to make records, and to have fun doing so.

Hoogie On The Road

May 3, 2009

Home: Tilbury Ontario

Here is Chatham Kent native Jeramy Donais (HooGie). He has been touring the world with different bands as part of their road crew.
   This was posted July 2007, when he was guitar tech for Breaking Benjamin. I first met him when he was working for ‘Not By Choice’ (If I remember correctly) & my ol band Janet Theory were on the bill.
    He has worked with Treble Charger, Theory of a Dead Man, Sam Roberts, and is spending allot of 2008-2009 working guitar tech for ShineDown. Got to love it.
