Halshack ep 15.5 (ROCK AGES) June 2019 --Bonus music only
A year ago today I began work on the clandestine Ep 12 (Stevie Nicks special), it was also my older brothers birthday as today is as well. Heath Jester, I love you so much brother. Happy birthday man!!
Well so much has changed and transpired in the last year. Its been quite amazing to see all the growth that the show has made. Over 30k subscribers added, multiple music platforms to be heard on (over 20 and growing). 64 major USA cities and 64 countries from around the world are all figuring out that the Halshack is where its at and my quality of bands is above all others.
I bring my own acts to seize the day and show people real bands still exist today. Its taken me 5 years to put together this list of fine rock bands from all corners of the globe. I have more, I cant possibly cover all the songs and bands in one hour so there will e more Rock Ages following down the road but for now enjoy my playlist of the BEST rock songs and rock bands playing today.
They say rock is dying and that is correct. In the big market all were left with is old has-beens and limited selection of styles of rock. Im here to show rock music fans that its not dead its alive and well and ready to rock the ages!!
Lets do this. Have fun. You know had to upstart and upstage any playlister on the planet. You will NOT outfox, out create, or surpass my musical talents and abilities of my golden ear. If its better, I havn't heard it yet!! Thats my reputation and I'm stickin' to it.
HALSHACK RECORDS will become a reality with the help of all my listeners and supporters to keep spreading the news and we will land a BIG FISH to invest or partner up. Its only a matter of time. So in the meanwhile have some "ROCK for your AGES"

Halshack Ep 15.5 (Lost -N- Space) 6-15-19 (Bonus show Music Only)
Its June, Summer is upon us and starry skies are abundant in the sultry nighttime sky here in the Carolinas. Its a beautiful sight to see as I set my starry eyed gaze on conquering the music universe.
This show is one of those more artsy musically skilled type shows full of eclectic bands sure to please your whimsical palette. Americana/folk, some alternative to start, lots of great "pop" hits as well and plenty of cool rock songs to send your mind wandering off into the stratosphere!
3 Excellent Canadian bands taking flight as well as our favorite Italian band on the planet from Malta will be joining this expedition to the stars. New producer JAEM is shooting his lucky stars and there's even a Pink Floyd esque band in the mix as well.
Just the perfect show for taking a trip through space and learning all about how your life can change in a blink of an eye when that rare comet comes around and streaks a blaze of light into your life! I think I may have seen that "Good Comet" in my life recently! I hope she comes back around!! Thanks Tyler Stenson for the great song! Well played and just what a nice touch with those superior golden pipes!
Show keeps growing and gaining serious popularity. Keep sharing and telling people about the Halshack. As the late Casey Kasem would say "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars" I have remembered that and lived that my whole life. Well its time for space folks. Lets fly there together!!

Time for Spring. Time to grow the Halshack. Its Ep 15. We got awesome new talent to spring into action in your eardrums. We got an authorized "unauthorized" cover (lol..ill explain) of a popular hit song from a known female artist turned into a male rock/alt song.
Trapdoor Social scored a BIG ticket win and are touring with the B52's this summer in Europe.
Battleshack 2 is coming so MAGIC Giant is coming around to start again with their great awesome folk music. Plenty more good folky americana tunes in this show as we are featuring more from new acts FAN FIQTION (collaboration group), and past greats ROGER JAEGER and BIG LITTLE LIONS.
Pop Stop is sure to please with 2 newcomers Jael Johnson and local homegrown artist from SC Jimmy Mowrey.
Mystery Spotlight is rockin' it out this episode to ??????..wait and see???

Halshack Ep 14.5 (Happy Mothershack Day) 5-12-19..Bonus show (music only)
Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there. We're celebrating women around the Halshack. There seems to be a stigma and true statistics that back up the claim that there are far fewer women at the forefront of the music industry. You find alot more men and male bands with that the extra talent needed to push forward. Well you girls and ladies and Moms are just as awesome and you seem to always have to work harder to gain the attention of your peers and THAT'S UNFAIR!!
Women are just as fantastic and can be super talented just as much as the guys!! (if not better) There's just far fewer to choose from with ace level talent, songwriting skills, captivation ability, "x" factor appeal. Even diggin' in the trenches of the internet audio sphere, I have not come across many that, are not signed or famous already, who have the whole enchilada..lol
Welcome to the future of the music industry folks. I'm sure there are ALOT (probably hundreds or thousands at least or more from all over the world) more than these 8. But that's what I've "discovered" so far. I don't know they are out there until I find them and that's a daunting task. I do have a few more ladies waiting in the wings. You super talented gals are a rare breed indeed. I have 77 acts now with only these 8 having prominent female leads so HATS OFF to you ladies gettin' in here and stickin' it to the MAN...lol
So MOM's everywhere, rejoice that you are amazing at anything you do and don't ever let a man belittle you or treat you badly. Please "don't love a Monster like Lauren Dair". Cant help who you love but you can get help out of that relationship. Any man who treats a woman this way has no concept of love or the value of life and can never make you happy! Please, tell a family member, the police, a friend. Call the battered woman's abuse centers, they will get you help before its too late and you cant call anyone!
We love our MOMs and all the women everywhere. Please respect them and they will respect you back. After all it takes 2 to love and make a happy life and love for Mom and the children (whether kids or adults).
Allright, Moms of these artists, I hope i made you proud this mothers day and I hope all women enjoyed this "very special" edition of the Halshack!
Been on this great music site recently called DROOBLE. Great community for amateur and professional musicians. Lots of good people, listen to music, leave reviews, and engage in a thoughtful and rewarding music community. So i found 2 artists on Drooble that made the grade. Both females too, I was so pleased to find them and I had this idea swirlin around in my head for a girlshack so it was perfect timing to put this out and add brand new artists from DROOBLE. (Maisie Mae Wardley) and (Lucia Banfield). Well done young ladies for grabbing my attention.
We did a review for Maisie Mae already and posted at my website, written by music blogger/band pr manager/and writer of books and poetry Andrea Baskin. Thanks Andrea for the nifty little piece on Maisie. She sure is talented and so are all these brilliant performers.
Ep 15 (new talk and music show with a theme loosely based around time (SPRINGTIME SUBLIME) and to support the show, companion bonus show (TIMESTICHERS) be out soon. Im hoping around the end of the month.
Find us on Itunes, podomatic, PLAYERFM, Castbox, and my website. You can stream the show or download and take it with you..ENJOY!!
