A Man with A Dream: The Stone White Story

                                 

 

 

 

Hello, my dear music lovers. Welcome to the next installment to the Metronome Theory. You all know me well enough by now that I love sharing contemporary music artists with you.  I find it quite invigorating to share new talent. It certainly gives me immense pleasure to introduce to you, Stone White. This southern gentleman has a lot of soul and his performances pack a punch.  If you’re like me, enjoy artists like James Brown, Wilson Picket, Elvis, then you will love this man. I call him a southern gentleman because he is. He hails from Nashville Tennessee but he currently resides in LosAngeles, California where stars are born. Stone White comes from humble beginnings and he learned early on that he wanted to perform. His mom allowed him to watch the video of live performances of James Brown and he also listened to live albums of Elvis and other classic R&B men of soul as well as Country. He related to me that his mom used to work at a bar and she would bring him with her and he quickly learned if he danced for people he would earn candy money. Later as he grew he would mow lawns to earn money for buying record albums and CDs. I knew he was a kindred spirit of mine as he expressed himself about how much he loved music. He also is still a fan of shows like The Midnight Special, In Concert, Don Kushner’s Rock Concert and many other music and dance shows of the day.  That’s how people like me know we had good TV back in the day because even if we could not see our favorite artists live we saw them on TV.  I wish the young people of the day had that luxury that we did because some of the performances we saw were unforgettable like when Red Bone a Native American band performed their song Come and Get Your Love. This song is now popular again because of the Guardian of The Galaxy movie franchise. Stone and I just talked about stories like that because that is what influenced him as a young person and helped to grow a passion that he shows every time he performs or put out a video. He learned from the masters about how having a presence on stage is just as important as the performance. People need to be entertained. Stone is what I call the total package. His music and live shows take you back to a time when music was pure and real. He reminds us of the nine-piece soul and blues bands that brought the funk and soul. He is no one trick pony by any means. He not only is soulful and funky he has the spirit of a rock and country artist flowing through his bones as well as a fantastic dancer.  You can tell he works hard on his craft and every part of what he does has been carefully thought out and he does not put out anything unless it is just right.  Stone evokes memories and he creates new experiences with a sense of nostalgia in his music. His experience in the theater also shines through with his performance. This man will execute precise movement as well as style to his action-packed shows without offending anyone by over-sexualizing anyone. In fact, he says if you are good at what you do profanity and over sexualization is not necessary. In other words, your talent speaks for itself. My interview with Stone White has been one of the most enjoyable with this true down to earth man. I just simply adore him. I hope you will jump on in and support this artist that I really do love .The incomparable Stone White. Now my dear music lovers this is the part I love to do and that is share where you can get more information and see Stone in action. Thanks for your support and I wish you Love, Peace, and more good Music.

Hello, my lovely ones. I am presenting to you my fellow music lovers a glimpse of behind the scenes at the music industry. This article is going to be the first of its kind to be showcased on the Metronome Theory. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you a record label called Ink Rebellion Boutique Record Label. This record label is in the UK and it is owned by Colonel Red. You may be wondering why I am sharing what I know about him again, well I am showcasing him in a different light.

that requires a great deal of dedication and demanding work before you can

Propaganjah: Reggae’s New Messengers of Peace and Love

 

 

 

 

Hello, my metronome Theory enthusiasts. I have a brand new band to introduce to you. I know you all have an idea about how I feel about music and I try to get you the music fans the best of the best for your listening pleasure. I want you to meet a from Ocala Fl. Reggae band called Propaganjah. Their name alone should give you an idea of what values these guys hold dear. The name Propaganjah came from their percussionist Ginjah.  These musicians are the real deal if you like Bob Marley, The Wailers, and all the reggae greats then you will enjoy this band. Their music is all about that positive vibes, love, and peace for all humankind. Their music just puts you in a good mood. Their music is very honest and as their name suggests they follow the philosophies of the Rasta principles. They are very open about where ganja plays in their lives as well. These guys, as well as the leader, were very cool to interview. Rob Burr is the guitarist and lead vocalist, Ginjah Riggio is the percussionist, Marlin Sessler is the bassist, Tyler Stalbaum is the drummer, Aaron Bergman is the saxophone player.  The adage never judge a book by its cover is a phrase that can be applied to this band because as you will see, they don’t look like the typical reggae band. Their sound, however, is totally legit. I can not tell you guys how awesome it was to meet these guys really and to prove how legit they were when we met at The High Dive Bar in downtown Gainesville, Fl they were opening up for the legendary Wailers and I got to meet and speak to Donald Kinsey that was totally exciting. He took my information and said he would check out my site.  The opportunity to open up for the kings of reggae for a band that has only been together for a year is a huge undertaking, and it speaks volumes about them.  Rob told me briefly about his music background. His dad was raised in the Virgin Islands because his family is native St Croix Islanders. The music he listened to growing up is truly a musical gumbo featuring Calypso, Soca, just to name a couple. He credits Steel Pulse, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Thrid World, Inner Circle and much more as his musical heroes.  The band wants people to get into their message of positivity and love.  Their goal is to lift people up in all that is good and Ire when you come to their shows as well as when you listen to their music. I can personally say mission accomplished because when you hear Road to Somewhere and Better Daze, you can’t help but feel calm, cool and totally chill.  You know how I do things on the Metronome Theory I invite you all to take a look and investigate this talented band for yourselves. I am confident that you will come to the same conclusion that Propaganjah is the future of reggae and the pied pipers of positivity, peace, and love. You can check them out on their Facebook Page

Klymaxx: The Saga Continues or Don’t Slap Me Cause I’m not in the Mood

            
Klymaxx Now                                                           Klymaxx Then
original Klymaxx Line-up
The 1980s were a fabulous year for music. Many bands had breakout careers and hit songs during this decade leaving behind an indelible mark on music history.   One such band was way ahead of its hand taking it a step further by following in the footsteps of female musicians like Sister Rosetta Thorpe.  The all-female band I am speaking of is Klymaxx.  Yes, The Maxx is back and I am so proud and excitedly happy about that.  Original member guitarist Cheryl Cooley has a brand new line-up of the iconic group.   The members are as follows: Lead Vocalist Christie Malone, Vocalist Tiffany Payne, Drummer and Vocalist Tramisha Vaughn, Bassist April Fletcher, Keyboardist Maggie Daniec and the awesome lady of Klymaxx Cheryl Cooley.  I have to admit I loved all of the artists I have written about thus far, in fact, some of these musicians and I have developed quite the friendships and I love and adore them all for what they do and for the people they are. This interview with Cheryl Cooley is the most important and the one that I am deeply honored to bring to you because when Klymaxx came out all we saw women do was play to the camera and get their sexy on. Some were talented but you could tell that some of these women made it by sleeping their way to fame and fortune.  The same can be said today in a way it’s all about image and who you can disrespect on record or at an awards show. I could name a couple of people off the top but you guys know that is not how I roll.  Seeing a woman work hard and hold her own in the male-dominated field of music entertainment was very rare or taken as a novelty. Some women had to undergo being accused of being gay or weird just because they wanted to focus their energy on being the best musician they could be. The point I am making is that being a female musician is not an easy task to do because of imaging and other trials and tribulations that a woman must face. She always has to prove herself and break the mold of what we view as a musician.  In the 1980s men were dominate in what we perceived as great musicians in all genres. We fell for the image of the sexy front man or guitar hero tantalizingly teasing the women in the audience as they performed their music so expertly.  The 1980s brought about real musical change and Klymaxx the first all-female R&B, Pop and Funk band flipped the script on everyone.  It was during this time that Cheryl Cooley who was spotted rehearsing in a studio by these innovative women who dared to be different and give us a new image of what a band, as well as a strong musician, should look like. This is why Klymaxx is my musical heroes because of this dare to be not only sexy, clever, smart, but talented gifted musicians and vocalist.  They were a well-oiled music making sisterhood and they made me as well as other young women and girls feel important and empowered.  The original seven-member band at their first signing with Solar records were Percussionist Bonnie Thompson, Bassist Denise Walk, Guitarist Ann Williams, and Drummer Bernadette Cooper. What these ladies saw in Cheryl that day watching her play her guitar was awe inspiring and became the beginning of the legendary band we all have come to know and love. The women began to embark on their musical destiny but they needed a keyboard player so they placed an ad in the newspaper and Keyboardist Lynn Malsby, their Lead Vocalist Lorena Porter (Stewart) she audition to be in the group Rose Royce but her vocals were too strong for what they were looking for so they sent her to Klymaxx. Joyce Irby did not become part of the band until 1981 after they signed with Solar records.  Then came keyboardist Robbin Grider and percussionist Judy Takeuchi.  Bonnie was excused from the group during the first signing due to a personal issue with another member of the band. In 1981 Klymaxx recorded their first album called   Never  Underestimate The Power Of A Woman.  Their first single was the title track. More personnel changes took place and the band we became familiar with consisted of   Bernadette Cooper, Robbin Grider, Lynn Malsby, Cheryl Cooley, Lorena Porter and Joyce Irby in the 1990s the band changed again and became a trio with Cheryl Cooley, Lorena Shelby, Robbin Grider.   Joyce Irby reunited with Lorena Shelby and Cheryl Cooley for the album titled One Day; the album was released on Irby’s 1869 EP Wreckudz label, and featuring the single “All I Think About Is You,” written by Babyface. Replacing Bernadette Cooper on drums was Terri Lyne Carrington.  I am hoping this is right ….. Whew.
In 1982 they recorded Girls Will Be Girls this and well as the first album and the album Girls in the Band recorded in 1983 under the first signing with Solar Records (which was never released due to label change), In 1984 under the Constellation label which is still Solar it all has to do with distribution Meeting in the Ladies Room came out and it went Platinum, Then Klymaxx came out in 1986. Then in 1990 they went to MCA and recorded The Maxx is Back (technically Klymaxx was still with Constellation distributed by MCA) and in 1994 they went to Valley Vue and recorded One Day. Here is a little history fact about Klymaxx Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced several songs for them and the song Meeting in The Ladies Room was inspired by a real life situation that involved one of the writers of the song. The writers of the song were three members of MidnightStar Reggie Calloway, Vincent Calloway, and Boaz Watson. The song I Miss You sung by Klymaxx Member Joyce Irby caused the band to be in the top three charting on the 1986 Billboard end of the year best artist chart.  The Men All Pause was written by Bernadette Cooper and Joyce Irby and who could forget the tag line Don’t Slap Me Cause I’m Not In The Mood.
Klymaxx was truly a fierce force to reckon with.  The saga continues with the current line up of the band their song called 4 Woman is a song that not only empowers us as women but it encourages sisterly love among one another no matter the race or background we may have.  We truly need more anthems like this one.  It is also a sure sign that not only is the Maxx back no matter the changes in life or professionally, it shows us the resilience and passion that one woman has for music. Cheryl Cooley did not want the legacy of Klymaxx to fade away because she knows the power that name has in music history and how it has caused many young women to pick up her guitar and let the world know she is for real.  I am looking forward to seeing more of what this dynamic band will be sharing with us now and forever more. The saga not only continues it is kicking doors down and taking the music industry by storm.

A Commentary About Music

the song below is Shining Star performed and owned by Earth Wind and Fire

 

 

 

Hello music fans and lovers, it has been a while since I made any commentaries about the one subject I am very passionate about.  I’m not talking about industry stuff I am comparing how we listen and get our musical fix.  I am proud to be a woman of a certain age and I love listening to music. I also love writing and talking to the people who create my favorite thing to talk about as well.  Anyway, I want to take you back in time the 1970s I was a kid back then and that was when I was really coming into my own concerning music and my love affair with it.  I remember listening to the radio back then; I listened to four radio stations at different times of the day. I lived in Hamden, Connecticut a suburb of the greater New Haven area. I would wake up in the morning and start my day with 1460 Waves AM. That was our pop station.  I would hear the likes of Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Three Dog Night, Bon Jovi, Kiss and more they would play the occasional artist of color so that they could legally say it was a pop station. I loved this station I even listened to them in the evening when my sister and I had to wash dishes after supper.  She would wash one night and I would dry or I would wash one night and she would dry.  Then I discovered 1340 WNHC that was the R&B station and where my mentor Jazzy was the late afternoon on-air man all the way to when whisper softly would come on I forgot who the Dj was that did that but that was the slow jam portion of the program.  WNHC moved to North Haven CT and became an FM station then over the years they went off the air. When I was an eleventh grader I got to meet my mentor Jazzy. He was tall and Chocolate brown in complexion and he had these eyes Oh MY. He had a big Fro. He wore glasses and had a voice that would stop traffic and he had an eye for the ladies, he let me come into the studio where they played music and the Dj that was before him his name was Mike don’t remember his last name he was good too. Mike was maybe five eight five nine and he was light in complexion he was ok looking too but he was not Jazzy. That experience helped to fuel my passion for music and how it is presented I wanted to be a DJ and Jazzy after me meeting him at a career day at my high school showed me the ropes.  He showed me that when the red light was on he was live on air and I could not speak.  When the light was off it was ok to speak and ask questions. I was 17 at the time and it did not matter because the whole time Jazzy stared at my chest along with Mike like deer caught in headlights. That’s how I know he had the eye for the ladies.  I truly believe if he was trying so hard to hold on to his professionalism and the console was between us I would have been in the studio with a human octopus. I must get back on track the other station I listened to as a kid was the college station WYBC FM which is now currently the main station that represents the African American Community in New Haven. I then listened to WBLS FM from New York that was the station to listen to if you wanted to hear the latest and greatest urban and dance music. Dj Red Alert and many other famous New York Dj came from that station doing a remix and party segments.  I remember not knowing who my favorite artists looked like sometimes you saw them on album covers and sometimes you had to wait until Right On magazine or Tiger Beat teen magazine did an article on that artist.  These magazines were known for their pin-up posters of the sex symbol of the day be it a group, single music artist or actor. I had my fair share of posters. The ultimate way to see your favorite artists back started late at night I remember Friday nights mom letting me stay up to watch Don Kershner’s Rock Concert, The next day after cartoons and chores were done Soul Train and American Bandstand. Then late that night was The Midnight Special. That was how I got to see my favorite music artists perform and even see them in concert. That does not include the many variety show appearances and dance shows Like Solid Gold. I think there was also a show called In Concert.  The next best thing was going to the record store and buying small records called 45s and albums and the 12in Dj’s cut of a single song from the original and all the many ways to remix this one song the 12 in the disc is the same size as an album.  Then there were eight tracks and cassettes. Nowadays we can get music in almost every form reel to reel, eight-track, cassette, record and digital.  Music doesn’t have to be a tangible entity any more music can be downloaded and played on your cell phone before a digital Walkman was the rage even portable eight-track players and cassette player and boom boxes not to mention cd players.Radio has even changed you can listen to custom stations via satellite stations such as Sirius and XM or online Stations like I Heart Music and Tune IN. You are no longer limited to local stations you can hear music from all over the world on these stations. Music has definitely evolved with the changes.  I love music any way I can get it; I am a firm believer in paying for your music because just like getting music has changed so has the creation and distribution music.  There are lots of independent music artists that depend on money from the consumer to survive. I won’t go too much into that because that’s another story. I would be interested in finding out how you the fans like getting your music what form. Thanks for your support and reading a commentary from me.

Blu Casey: More than Just a Singer

Uncle Terry Casey From Mazarati Days         My Sissy Blu Casey

(We do not own the rights to the picture of Terry Casey)

 

Hello Metronome Theory Lovers and Friends, I’m about to introduce to you a wonderful singer and business woman. She comes from a long line of Gospel singers. Her name is Blu Casey. Her last name may be familiar to you if you are a Mazarati fan. She is the niece of the original front man of the band Terry Casey. This woman is dynamic because of her devotion to her sons as a single mom the support of her family especially her Uncle Terry. She communicates with her uncle’s fans and relays their messages of admiration and love to him. In fact, that is how we met via YouTube.  That was so long ago and we have been like sisters ever since talking about music and the ups and downs of life and being single moms.  She is one of the few females I consider a friend.  She is also an excellent businesswoman. She owns an adult store online called Casey’s Playground.    http://caseysplayground.adultshopping.com/ Everything she touches turns to gold. She is also very humble it’s funny that she did not think she was worthy of being written about. Here is why I think she is because she has that soulful and gospel feel to her vocals. She can sing alone and in harmony. She can also sing her own songs but do something else that I value and takes great skill. She can sing someone else’s songs and make them her own. She puts her own spin on it and gives you a new way of seeing and thinking about that song.  Here is a perfect example I love the song Baby Come to Me by Regina Belle. It’s a classic romantic love song. When I heard Blu’s version I immediately said this is going in my stash for that special evening with a certain someone. It really spoke to me. I am sure many of her fans that go out to see her perform or those who hire her for events would agree wholeheartedly.  Her vocal stylings are broad she can sing anything from Gospel to Rock and everything in between.   I am really honored to share this artist with you and I hope you enjoy her talent and visit her store to add a little spice in your love life. Please enjoy the video which she did herself. At the end of the day, it is all done with love and admiration of her fans.  As I Promised Goody Goody by Frankie Lymon sang by Blu Casey. In fact, this is a ten song set and my favorite Baby Come To Me is In this set.

 

 

Marcia Carr: Dj Extraordinaire and More

CARL:NIKKI:MARCIA:ROBIN! PRIDE N POLITIX

 

Hello, Metronome Theory fans. It is 2017 and we are certainly getting more interesting articles for you to indulge in. The first one out of the gate is a new friend of mine, in fact, I call her my Soul Sistah from across the big pond.  She really is our lives professionally and personally, has mirrored each other.  Our experiences are either very similar or the same. Her name is Marcia Carr and she is an extraordinary DJ. She is a female with passion that takes what she does on her wheels of steel seriously.  Her journey is very interesting. Like me, she is a single mom. I say this because, we as women of a certain age have come to learn a lot of things and we take pride and putting important. If a man should happen to come along its all good and if not we continue to live our lives as full as we can. Faith is number one. We both know that if we did not have it, did not work on making positive changes, enlightened ourselves on what is real and what is not, we would not be the fun loving people some of you have come to know.  She has found that not only having a great spiritual foundation, everything else seems to fall into place. However, it helps you to work with lots of different people no matter what their opinions and feelings are. Marcia has been an instructor for budding radio announcers. She has been a music journalist for two popular magazines in the UK. She was a street dancer and she currently hosts an event for female DJs called “Girlz B Like.” It’s a celebration of and for female DJs.  She not only does events all over the world but she also does a set on the UK’s number one soul station “Mi-Soul.”  This busy mom has to work like many of us in order to pay the bills.  All of this began when her family lived briefly in the US.  At the age of six, Marcia discovered one of my favorite shows: Soul Train.  Her love for music and dance did not diminish, even when she moved back to the UK.  It was a relative of hers that made frequent trips to New York City and would send back or bring back the latest sounds.  When Marcia became a teenager, she saw boys Djaying and mixing records.  She said to herself: ‘I can do that.’ And she did. She performed at her first party and the rest is history.  She was a young adult taking a class in radio announcing, though she had experience doing so on a college station. When she finished, she was offered a position at her school to teach a class. She did that for a year.  She also became a music journalist for two popular music magazines like I mentioned earlier. This came about during a conversation with some friends. She stated her opinions about some music and they told her she should write into the magazines. “Touch Magazine” loved what she said so much that they printed her comments and offered her a job.  She became a person in the know within the music scene. This led to an article about a band called Pride and Politix and a lifelong friendship between her and the front man. Who knew many years later I would connect and write about Colonel Redz.  He connected me to Marcia; an awesome lady with spirit.   Despite the ups and downs of life this dynamic Dj finds pleasure in bringing people together on the dance floor and tantalizing them with her musical delights. Like a mixologist, she mixes sound and musical concoctions to stimulate the mind, body, and soul. This is her gift of love to the world.  Similarly, just like my Soul Sistah,  I give you the chance to learn about artists like her to broaden your musical horizons so that you can see that when you listen to her she’s more than extraordinary she is truly passionate about what she does and it’s all done in love.

Now for my favorite part, I get to share links to where you can learn more about Ms. Carr. Enjoy everyone.
