The Power of Love by Melvin Leonard/Barbeque Hot Sauce Band #RnB #Soul


Listen on Apple Music

Melvin Leonard hails from the colorful southern city of New Orleans, Louisiana. His grandfather, Walter Manaday, played drums for Louis Armstrong. His mother, Mary Sterling Leonard, played honky-tonk blues piano in church along with having a superb velvet voice. Melvin grabbed a pair of drumsticks before he grabbed his first bottle, and he has been pounding out rhythms for as long as he could remember. 

Singing at church and other events, at the tender age of 10, these talents began to develop in Melvin`s childhood with music, song, and appreciation for the unique southern sound named Funk. 

His professional career started in the internationally acclaimed nightclubs of the New Orleans French Quarter. As a singer, songwriter, and producer, Melvin`s  style of singing is funky, and he is likely to become one of the hottest stars of the R&B world. 

Melvin first new CD release was titled "Melvin Leonard: The Prince of the Blues" in 1996. It received a multitude of appreciation and took off like a rocket. 

The songs on this CD are: 

 You Wont Miss Your Water, Till Your Well Runs Dry 
 You Up-Set Me Baby 
 Drunk Woman Ain’t No Good For Me 
 So Long My Baby Is Gone 
 Nobody Wants You When Your down and Out 
 I’ve Been Ripped Off For My Money 
 One Woman with Two Men 
 I’m A Fool for You Baby, But Mama Didn’t Raise No Fool 
 I’m Your Blues Man Baby 
 Don’t Talk About My baby, Leave My Baby Alone

Melvin`s enthusiasm for music is expressed in his new release, "Fired Up," his second CD with a more R&B Funk original style. 

The songs on this CD are: 
 Slipping In the Mix
 Fire It Up 
 Wave In The Water 
 VooDoo Booty Shake 
 Hello Y’all 
 Shake Your Booty
 This Is What Dreams Is All About 
 She’s Sexy 
 Your Got To Move Your Body

The second CD propelled Melvin into the next level and will surely result in success. In turn, Melvin`s second CD is a high demand item for all music lovers. Both CDs were released on his own Spice Records Label that is colored with the soulful sound of the Southern Funky South.

The greatest moments in Melvin`s career have been playing his music live. He has played with some of the greatest artists in the music industry. Such as The Heart of Soul Band, The City News Band, The Profascinations Pros Band, The Chaparrals Band, Jean Knight, Irma Thomas, King Floyd, Aaron Neville, O.V. Wright, Z.Z. Hill, Arnie Kato, Antoine and Anatole Domino Jr. just to name a few.

Home by Kittenhead #Rock #Alternative #BMI #Oakland #CA #California


Listen on Apple Music

Kittenhead is a playfully sinister pop- punk posse that, for over two decades now, has been pumping out its one-of-a-kind rock ‘n roll vibes to its loyal fan base. A California band, through and through (LA, OC, SF), Kittenhead is a five-piece litter of veteran punk rock cats with a line-up that exemplifies the term diversity, spanning various genders, sexual orientations and ethnicities. Despite its unique differences, each band member is in agreement in an intense love of rock n roll (and a little pussy play!?). Kittenhead’s current and past line-ups have consisted of music pros from Green Jelly, The Generators, Butt Trumpet, the White Trash Debutantes, Blackjack Betty, the Dirty and Lisafer. It’s an incestuous group of felines, considering at one time or another, most bandmates have played with another memeber in different combos of prior bands since Junior High school.

Kittenhead is big on supporting charitable causes close to its members’ hearts. The band has played the mainstage of major LGBTQ-oriented festivals including Oakland Pride and Folsom Street Fair and has been a marquee performer at various roller derbies across the U.S. (driven by its “Derby Girl” single, which teams still use in match warmups).

I Know I Love You Performed by: Brian Berggoetz #Americana #Folk

Listen on Apple Music

Brian Berggoetz is based in Tucson, Arizona. The group is led by singer and songwriter Brian Berggoetz. His music could be described as a unique combination of different styles and influences, such as pop and rock alike. Brian has been passionate about music throughout most of his life. He is a self-taught guitarist and a gifted songwriter who has been active since his early 20s. What makes his music unique is the fact that he doesn’t just write his own music, but he also has a penchant for re-writing classic songs in his personal style. While many cover song artists tend to reproduce the covers they interpret verbatim, B3 is very gifted when it comes to bringing a touch of personality and authenticity to the material that he performs. 

The artist is active as a performer, and he had the chance to play live extensively, including opening and sharing the stage for internationally respected acts, the likes of Reverend Horton Heat, Charlie Sexton, and Jerry Giddens, only to mention a few. Brian took the local music scene (and beyond) by storm with not one but two amazing bands. He uses these different line-ups to bring his sound to different dimensions. 

One of the groups is a straight-up, pure rock and roll affair, consisting of a lead guitarist, a drummer, and a bass player supporting Brian as a lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player. The second line-up allows Brian to experiment with a warmer, more laid-back sound, which features orchestral elements such as a violin and a cello. It is always interesting to hear Brian arrange some of his songs differently. Sometimes, he performs the same tracks with both line-ups, but he changes the song arrangement to fit the specific sounds the band has to offer depending on whether he is going to perform them with his rock lineup or with the classical band. The fact that he is so versatile and his songs fit such different contexts are incredibly remarkable, allowing people to enjoy different sides to his artist pathos and personality as a whole.

Much like a baker using the proper ratios and ingredients, he can expertly craft his music by knowing exactly how to blend all of these different influences into something that is quite special and personal. There is a time for melody, and there is a time for energy: Brian is able to endow his tracks with equal doses of these two important elements, and his sound is balanced and poignant because of that. His songs always stand out as a fantastic example of what it means to make pop-rock songs that are catchy yet extremely insightful and diverse.

The hard-hitting punch of this track speakers for itself, and if you enjoy the music of artists such as Bruce Springsteen, and John Cougar Mellencamp, only to mention a few. Currently, the band is also working on new music, with an upcoming album to be released very soon. If the material he’s been released thus far is any indication, audiences are certainly in for a very special treat. Brian, aided by his trusty bandmates and musical collaborators, is always eager to set the bar higher, creating music that the crowd can easily relate to. Whether you enjoy his songs at home or get a chance to see him on stage, the experience will undoubtedly leave a profound impression and a big mark.
