Tell us more about The Sky Is Not The Limit:
A juicy, guitar driven, tube amplified, blues & rock'n'roll inspired by the early delta blues composers, as well as the rhythm and blues icons from the revolution era of the 60’s. Strong pro-eco message, a call for entire humanity to come to it's sense.

Inspiration came from the radio news on a child left in a car while father went shopping on a extremely hot summer day. Adam took this story and inverted in in his own cynical way to show thoughtlessness, egoism and cruelty of people. Many of the verses are showing few other examples of some people trademark behavior of our times.

Guitar riff is written in contrary with a relaxing mood, so music and lyrics are in contrast which enhances further the message. 

The song was written by Adam & Robert during one of the rehearsals in the summer of 2018. Recording was made in Stockholm, Sweden. "We spent about week in a very nice summer house next to the Nordic fiords. After the recording sessions we were sitting on the sun-deck roof of the house and discussing social and political things of today's world. All nights long.... Summer solstice hoaxed our senses and we didn't know, it was a morning ot the next day... Amazing moments, a lot of good memories."

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ⭐️ Shadi G - Wrong Kind



radioairplay.com independent new music



Shadi G - Wrong Kind
R&B, Soul, Pop
Sweden




Just like my other songs, Wrong Kind was produced, written and performed by me. It was recorded and produced in my bedroom, and released by a record label that I started. The song touches upon the matter of being in a relationship where the other person thinks they know what you need, and has a lot to say about it. It's about the power of listening to yourself and knowing exactly what it is you need. And the freedom that comes when you get it. 

Shadi G is a Swedish songwriter, producer and singer whose soulful voice and unique RnB/Soul sound is striking the attention of some of Sweden's biggest music magazines.
Being schooled in classical music from a young age, growing up with music all from jazz, RnB, soul, hip hop to Persian music, where she has her roots, Shadi is crossing borders with her own soulful sound, both in style and language.
Straight after high school she went off to London to learn music production and in 2016 she released her debut single “Lost”, which got her on to some of Swedens biggest playlists. In 2017 she started her own record label, Goldamin Records, from which the second single “Where We Go”, was released. From the label followed her first EP "No Fear" and singles “Disconnection” and “Mind”. 

A new artist but already carving out a clear space in her field, and as stated by Soundlooks Magazine - “Discussions are quietly surfacing about whether Shadi G may become an important face of contemporary R&B”.


Can you describe your sound in one ramble-on sentence?
Smooth R&B/soul with heartfelt lyrics and the most velvety, soft vocals.

What's your earliest music-related memory growing up?
From a very young age I started singing in our cities most renowned choir. There I was schooled in classical music and got the disciplin from a very young age. And I remember how powerful it felt being in the midst of the magical sound that was created when so many people's voices was merged together. And how cool it felt to be a part of that.

Do you write/compose your own songs? Briefly describe your songwriting process.
Yes. I produce, write and perform my own songs.  The process of making the music can be quite different. But it can start with me sitting in front of the piano and feeling out different melodies. I have a lot of lyrics and different small sentences that I write down on all different places, my phone, small paper notes etc. So I start playing on the piano and start merging melody and text together. And the story can be different, depending on what i have inside and what I need to ventilate at that time. Then I take it to the computer and start to make a production for it, trying out different sounds and feels for it. Then I record vocals, and play around a lot with backing vocals!  

Does anything in particular inspire you to write? What get's your creative juices flowing?
Relationships, the one between you and someone you love, between two other people, the one to yourself.

What do you like more: Performing live or recording in the studio?
Up until now it has been recording in the studio. I haven't really performed a lot because I have mostly been writing music and producing. I think I have been trying to keep myself in the background and not be much up on the stage. But the more I do it, the more I love. To also tell the story of your music live to the audience.

Any embarrassing on stage moments you'd like to share? C’mon, don’t be shy!
Just an overall stage-fright that has been not pretty at times haha!

What has been a highlight for you in the past year? (Either personally or for your music career.)
When the music I have written and created myself was listed as one of the best songs of that year, by one of Sweden's biggest music magazine. That felt so amazing and huge.

If you were to cover another band/artist's song/record, which would you pick and why?
Probably SiR's John Redcorn!

What are some artists/bands that you're into at the moment? Or any particular song you find yourself listening to over and over?
6lack! I find his voice and music so melodic and lyrics amazing. Also Little Simz, Snoh Alegra, H.E.R. and Daniel Caesar to name a few.

What do you enjoy doing outside of music? Does your hobby rejuvenate your creativity?
Being in nature, doing yoga, cooking, baking, dinners with friends! Yes, I think it's powerful to have different interests and passions that gives you bliss and energy. And they also create a good balance between the different interests.

What's one thing people should know about you?
I need a lot of alone time. But then I can be social and around people again! :)  


If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
If you have love for something, a passion that you want to go for, just go get it!

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ⭐️ Al Morreira - I Need You



radioairplay.com independent new music



Al Morreira - I Need You
Pop, Country, Hawaiian
HI, United States





Al Morreira was born in Hawaii and started playing guitar at age 12, that is, when he wasn't surfing on the north shore of Oahu where he grew up. Al enjoyed the beautiful beaches and exotic sunsets that inspired him as a songwriter. His beautiful voice and songwriting talent allowed him to share his love of music by performing internationally, while serving in the U.S. Air Force. 

Al's success as a guitarist-vocalist placed him first in 11 Air Force Talent contests. He was the grand prize winner for an Omaha,Nebraska radio station. This led him to being nationally recognized with a recording contract in Nashville, Tennessee, where he charted "Top 100 Country" in Billboard and Cash box magazines, with the single "Where do I go from Here", under his then show name "Al Garrison". Al has since returned home and has been sharing his music locally appearing in numerous events, radio and the television show "Hawaii Stars".  A caregiver for his mom until her passing and away from his music for a while, Al is now back to his songwriting and wanting to share his music again.

Can you describe your sound in one ramble-on sentence?
My sound is easy listening, heartfelt songs. I've been told sounds similar to Elvis Presley, BJ Thomas, Englebert Humperdinck and slight Tom Jones.

What's your earliest music-related memory growing up?
My first musical electrifying moment was as a child, seeing Elvis Presley singing and playing the guitar in the movie "Love Me Tender".  This triggered my love for music and wanting to play the guitar which eventually I was able to acquire and was able to perform for audiences in small and large venues also in competing in various talent contests.

Do you write/compose your own songs? Briefly describe your songwriting process.
Yes, I write/compose my own songs which I enjoy.  My creative process with this is to first get the feel on the song/music then create the lyrics to fit that feel.

Does anything in particular inspire you to write? What get's your creative juices flowing?
Listening to other artists such as Tom Jones, Elvis Presley and other present artists who create the musical feel  with their singing presentation definitely gets my creative juices flowing.  I believe a good song written and expressed well, is equivalent to a good, effective speaker who can translate that feeling and excitement in a powerful way that the audience and relate to it, enjoy it or be a part of it.

What do you like more: Performing live or recording in the studio?
Through the years, I've enjoyed live performances but for now I'm enjoying more the writing and doing studio recording of my own songs and presenting it to our audiences via the internet.  This has been a God's gift for me in the healing process having been a caregiver for our mother until her very last breath.  She and my dad were my greatest musical supporters.  Music is the best thin in anyone's life, I believe, whether one is writing, creating it or as a listener.   Very healing and good for the soul.

Any embarrassing on stage moments you'd like to share? C’mon, don’t be shy! I've had two on stage shocking and embarrassing moments:
1. While entertaining with my band members, I stepped up to the microphone to sing, got close to the mike touching my lips to the microphone immediately getting a shock bite to my lips which threw me back. Not sure what happened, cross current of whatever but it zapped me good to which I earned the name "Hot Lips".    Funny but scary.

2. Sitting, singing the song "Feelings" with my eyes closed and really getting into it, I hear the audiences soft voices chattering which confused me as to why this was happening.  As I open my eyes I see that my microphone on the stand was not secured well and it slipped down so the my voice became softer and distant and the microphone was down at about crotch level.   Now, keeping this in mind, this was in the middle of a contest.  Not good!  

What has been a highlight for you in the past year? (Either personally or for your music career.)
Highlight for me in the past year has been with Radio Airplay in the amount of audience enjoyment of my songs with a accelerating accumulation of fans that I'm gaining daily.  To a songwriter this has to be a highlight to songwriting knowing that many are liking and enjoying the music we've created. A wonderful feeling!

If you were to cover another band/artist's song/record, which would you pick and why?
Although I really doing my own music and the various songs that I have, I would enjoy doing songs by Englebert Humperdinck, Elvis Presley and Tom Jones.  I would pick these because as I previously mentioned like a great speaker they really come across with the message to each song with feeling, happy or sad.

What are some artists/bands that you're into at the moment? Or any particular song you find yourself listening to over and over?
There are so many great artists today as in the past so this is a really good question.  I have been so busy lately working on my own song material that I have not been paying attention to other songs at the moment.  I'm having so much fun trying to get my songs out there to our audiences that I've been concentrating on this only at this time.  

What do you enjoy doing outside of music? Does your hobby rejuvenate your creativity?
Outside of music, I enjoy looking after my health and caring for myself the best I can.  Being a caregiver, though tremendously rewarding and I would never trade it for the world, took quite a toll on my health.  With this said, I enjoy my daily exercise, eating healthy, relaxing and working with my computer in designing my music album covers. Actually, music is my hobby, I'm having a great time with it and it does rejuvenate my  creativity on different levels.

What's one thing people should know about you?
I truly enjoy seeing people happy, healthy, productive and successful doing whatever complements these for them individually. Primarily, without our health we each do not have anything.  


If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
Live well, love much, enjoy and appreciate life and each other to the fullest. Like the notes in a song, when all is in key, the music is so beautiful!  Music is a powerful, healing element, enjoy it!

Promote Your Station 🔥 Name Dropping 🔥 It's Not A Bad Thing

Name-dropping: the practice of naming or alluding to important people and institutions within a conversation, story, song, online identity, or other communication.

Typically we consider this a negative thing right?  A tactic used to impress someone or boost credibility. Well, we are here to tell you when promoting your Jango station NAME DROP AWAY!

What better way for your fans to support your music then to be able to hear you alongside all the other music they want to listen to. Your fans can directly support you by listening to your artist station on Jango.com and Jango Radio App, they'll hear all of your live uploaded tunes within the mix of your similar artists and any artist they add to your station.

How can you promote your artist station?

All live songs will give you the ability to either share the song with a direct URL or easily share with a Facebook post. Copy and paste the URL or click the Share button in order to create a shared FB post. 




Share your public profile.
You can promote your general public profile too. It will start your artist station with a random live song on Jango and allow your fans all the same access to support your music. You can locate that at the top right of your Radio Airplay dashboard.

Does promoting my station benefit my PopScore?
Thumbs up initiated through the Jango station player and not the Promo Module do not get reported on your Radio Airplay dashboard. In order to maintain the integrity of PopScore, thumbs up that are not created via a play credit interaction do not count as a direct like in your reporting.  However, they do count as a positive interaction on your profile. Moreover, new fans will absolutely count as a positive interaction and be present on your dashboard. The PopScore formula includes all of these interactions. Promoting your station can absolutely benefit PopScore.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ⭐️ Craig Ledford with The Band Of All Things - The Answer



radioairplay.com independent new music


Craig Ledford with The Band Of All Things - The Answer
Rock, Acoustic, Blues
TN, United States




Released first album under Grandfather Dragon in 1992. Released second under Alister Blak in 2000. After freelancing as a Bass player for some national artist, began With The Band Of All Things in 2010. More releases coming soon!



Tell us a little about this video: This was filmed in South East Kentucky. I lived in the house in the video at the time. Many of the scenes are childhood memories. I did not grow up there, my parents were from there. I moved there for a few years in adulthood. Many friends and family still do. I have relatives in those old graves in some scenes. That was my rooster too. His name was Cogburn, named after a John Wayne character.

Can you describe your sound in one ramble-on sentence?

Classic sound mixed with a modern presence, a mood and feeling of a quiet rage, with an underlying peace and wisdom.

What's your earliest music-related memory growing up?
Being the youngest of seven children, music of every genre passed my crib. But it was Aerosmith "Back in the Saddle" that made me say I want to play and write.

Do you write/compose your own songs? Briefly describe your songwriting process.
My process begins with a melody, be it a guitar riff or vocal line. I get the basic feel and write the rest according to the aggressiveness of the melody. I hone the idea on a home 8 track recorder, give that recording to the other musicians, then take it to a professional studio. I never keep any lyrics that takes me longer than twenty minutes to write.

Does anything in particular inspire you to write? What get's your creative juices flowing?
Sometimes a news story, but for the most part, it is life experiences. Either way, I always try to create a relatable experience for the listener.

What do you like more: Performing live or recording in the studio?
I really enjoy both.

Any embarrassing on stage moments you'd like to share? C’mon, don’t be shy!
Played an older club with bad ground wires. During a song, my lips touched the microphone. It was like getting punched by a Mac truck. It numbed my lips, I sounded like I just walked out of a dentist office for a couple of songs.

What has been a highlight for you in the past year? (Either personally or for your music career.)
The song "The Reckoning" was on a music video television show called "Nashville Next".

If you were to cover another band/artist's song/record, which would you pick and why?
Johnny Cash "I hung My Head". Songwriting excellence in my opinion.
What are some artists/bands that you're into at the moment? Or any particular song you find yourself listening to over and over? I'm currently into Ozzy Ozbourne's latest album "Ordinary Man". But Zakk Wylde solo stuff, and of course, Slayer is never far from my play button.

What do you enjoy doing outside of music? Does your hobby rejuvenate your creativity?
I experience a lot of paranormal things, so ghost hunting. I always watch the skies because of things I have seen up there. A passion for ancient history. The subjects work their way into songs sometimes.

What's one thing people should know about you?
I believe love should be the biggest part of human life.


If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
Life is but a state of mind. If you control that, you have much more control of your existence. Pain is always inevitable, misery is by choice.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ⭐️ Twin Charade - Inaboyasa



Twin Charade - Inaboyasa
Rock, Hard Rock, Alternative, EDM
Canada

The circus has arrived. Joshua Pivato & Alex Kachkan make-up the dynamic alt-rock duo called Twin Charade. Their music stands for the art of autonomy. It's a call to become an overcomer. It's often satire, it's always theater, it's wrapped in the fiery spirit of Rock n Roll... and they want you to dance to it.

Are they conjuring something, putting a spell on me, or is this Parseltongue? The funkiness only increases throughout the recording. Headphones a must for maximum tripping. I get this Larry LaLonde from Tales from the Punchbowl vibe throughout the solo.  Hope the Radio Airplay artist community enjoys!






Can you describe your sound in one ramble-on sentence?
A sound it seems that seeks to find a way to leave the world behind, to tread the valleys of sounds galore, and walk through every musical door, and on each one Twin Charade a'knocks, to never be pinned inside a box, to rock to roll, to dance and scream, to bring to light the waking dream.

What's your earliest music-related memory growing up?
The sounds of Mozart from within the womb. Or something like that...

Do you write/compose your own songs? Briefly describe your songwriting process.
We write & compose all of our music from a place of unhindered free-flow, through channeled imagination and pure unfiltered passion. Then we hit the record button too - that always helps.

Does anything in particular inspire you to write? What get's your creative juices flowing?
We thrive off of one another's ideas the most. A brand new guitar riff, a provoking vocal line...

What do you like more: Performing live or recording in the studio?
Performing Live.

Any embarrassing on stage moments you'd like to share? C’mon, don’t be shy!
On one of our first gigs, at the crescendo of our "intro", our equipment malfunctioned and we stoof on stage repairing it for a good 45 minutes while the crowd watched. Then we re-did the intro all over...


What has been a highlight for you in the past year? (Either personally or for your music career.)
This year has been the year we release what has been a long labor & labor of love. That's highlight enough for us and we truly can't wait for what comes next.

If you were to cover another band/artist's song/record, which would you pick and why?
Hmm. Maybe Katy Perry. Her music can be quite cinematic.

What are some artists/bands that you're into at the moment? Or any particular song you find yourself listening to over and over?
We're always finding new fantastic artists. There's no shortage out there. Lately we've been listening to some Billy Talent, Periphery, Delta Rae, Billie Eilish.

What do you enjoy doing outside of music? Does your hobby rejuvenate your creativity?
Alex practices mixed martial arts, enjoys a variety of teas, and enjoys fashion. Josh is a film/tv actor, enjoys a lot of coffee, and enjoys yelling.

What's one thing people should know about you?
We are here to perform with all of our hearts and we are here to find you, our tribespeople and to share with you all of the energy we have & together celebrate the magic of music.

If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

Inaboyasa, baby.
