Rock and R&B Band Blue Meadow Identify With Their Influences Boyz II Men and Little River Band

ImageRock and R&B band Blue Meadow likes to identify with their influences such as Boyz II Men and Little River Band because they feel it shapes the music they make today.  The boys of Blue Meadow have set out to make music that is truly their own, following the old adage “if you want something done right, do it yourself.” By mixing an array of different styles into one pot and creating their version of popular rock, their debut album 39th & 8th proudly introduces a collection of musical styles that epitomize the unique essence, energy and special vibe that is the Big Apple. The band recently released a music video for their new album’s first single, “Cloud 9.”  You can watch the video here!  If you love their hit single, you should check them out live! Blue Meadow will be at the Highline Ballroom in New York this summer on July 21st. Tickets can be purchased here.

Blue Meadow consists of four singer-songwriters from NYC: Densen Curwen, Devon Joseph, Dexter Lendor, and Jamal Reed. You may recognize the name Jamal Reed because of his success with the group Naturally 7.  Best known for their distinct style of “vocal play” Naturally 7′s style of R&B vocals mixed with beat boxing is carried over to Blue Meadow through Jamal’s instantly identifiable voice. The best part is that all four members sing!

You can order or download their album here.

Eric Dill’s Single, War With The Wolves, Hits Top 100 on Radio – Win 2 Tickets to Private Listening Party

Eric Dill’s accomplishments when he was with The Click Five (TC5) are all but a memory as he carves his own niche sound, in his own way on his new solo record “Forever Is Not Enough” coming out on November 20th. No doubt, some of you remember his platinum Single “Just the Girl’”.

On the heels of his exceptional performance at Gene Simmons Rocktoberfest, Eric Dill’s solo single “War With The Wolves” just landed in the top 100 on the Top 40 radio chart!

For his new release, his independent record label is putting on the glitz with an intimate Private VIP Record Release party at the Gibson Showroom and one lucky fan will win 2 passes to it (you’ll need to make your own way to LA as transportation is not included if you win). It’s going to be in Beverly Hills, CA on the evening of Thursday, November 15th. He’ll be performing at the Release party with his band electrically and also doing a few acoustic songs. The place only holds 99 people so it will be such a special treat!

Rock Artist Eric Dill, Formerly of The Click Five Launches Solo Career With Songs at Gene Simmons Rocktoberfest

An evening of good food, great beer, even greater music at Gene Simmons & Wolfgang Puck’s Rocktoberfest at LA Live – I recommend attending next year if they do it again!

What particularly got me to commit to attending is that I saw that Eric Dill who used to be the lead singer for the Click Five was performing.   I’ve been a big fan since I first heard him in the early 2000’s.  Eric did not disappoint!  He totally rocked the house with his renditions of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”, Radiohead’s “Creep” and (I think it’s by the Outfield) “Your Love”. 

He was backed by some of the all star band that Simmons put together for the event,  Eric Dover/Guitar (Slash’s Snake Pit, Jellyfish), Brent Woods/Lead Guitar (played with Vince Neil), Michael Devin (Whitesnake and European sensation Steamroller), Matt Laug/Drummer (Alanis Morissette, Christina Aguilera, Richard Marx, etc.), Teddy Andreas/Keyboards (appeared with Carole King, Slash, Ziggy Marley, etc)  and  Big Jim Wheeler/Sax (has toured  with:  Kenny Loggins, Loggins and Messina, ABC, Slash’s Snake Pit).

Eric just released his first solo (Halloween) single “War with the Wolves”.  The full album I hear will be out in November with all originals (not covers).  Watch the video here it’s sure to become a cult classic!
