Q&A with Croatian multitalented artist Boris Hrepić Hrepa, the blues and music was always part of his life

Posted on February 5, 2023 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

"I am working with kids whole my life, or through my TV show for kids, or as an art teacher, or as a father of three kids, and also through Blues At School that I am doing from Memphis to Croatia. Kids are pure essence of human being, so open, so natural and direct. Someone said that if you look into kids eyes you can see God. I am always learning from kids."

"Music does calm the savage beast, but also feeds him as well. I found that no matter what changing moods I have gone through in life; music has been the great equalizer. No matter if it is pain, happiness, sadness, anguish, exhilaration, love, music has played a key role in helping me cope and keep well adjusted."

"I believe I am missing the days that there were Heroes and big talents in the Blues scene and all music genres. Even 80's 90's pop starts, rock starts, bands, greatest talents. My fear is Blues becomes only entertainer music for people only listens to dance and have parties and losing the soul and vibe same time, those great performing musicians / singers becomes really rare to see now a days."…

Q&A with UK band of The Cinelli Brothers, a rising force on the music scene; an amalgam of blues, rock and soul,

Posted on February 4, 2023 at 10:30am 0 Comments

"I believe that the 60’s and the 70’s were magnificent years for the British scene. The most important bands in the world came out of those years, and it was revolutionary. Much of that audience lives still, and they transmit the passion for live music to their children and grandchildren. I have seen it at the CB’s shows."

Q&A with Greek band of Omonoia Circus; hand-made real music, psychedelic, jazz, and progressive rock

"Poetry can have the same subversive power as music. Although it is much more solitary both in creation and appreciation, it can open minds, unite them. Poetry is a door. It can open galaxies of space. It is infinite. In fact it is not much different that music and where music and poetry join, magic can result."

"In the way that music provides a soundtrack for our lives, the messaging in songs impacts the way we think and perceive the world. Music can be a safe place to explore ideas. As songwriters, I hope that we can broach challenging topics. I also hope that we will have critical listeners."

Kate Weekes: Better Days Ahead

Q&A with veteran musician Charlie Souza, bass player, vocalist, performer, writer and producer in the music over five decades

Posted on February 3, 2023 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

"I’ve learned that the hardest thing to do when you’re an artist/musician/writer, is to get outside of yourself and listen to others to help understand what makes the music work and flow even better. Some of us haven’t been able to do that since our own level of talent keeps us self -involved."

""The interesting thing is, when travelling around, you realize that every human being aspires to similar things outside of life. They want a good home, a good mate, a decent job and some entertainment. Blues is appreciated anywhere I’ve travelled to It’s a bit of a universal language that can reach every culture."
