Have you heard about a show on TV called The Voice? Have you ever wondered what Shakira is really like? Well wonder No longer. We have have Singer/Songwriter Jeremy Briggs in studio, straight from his time on The Voice. We talk about his history in music and baseball. We hear about his journey with Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll...but he didn't do the Sex and Drugs part and just stuck with the music. Personally I thought the Sex and Drugs part was why ALL musicians got into it. That's why we are here and he is on the National stage. Enjoy.
In the Big Z Studio we have Singer/Songwriter Justen Farren. He drops a couple of beautiful songs for the Boys. We talk about the Sac Music Scene and Relationships. Who in the studio built there own house? Well it wasn't me or Junior that's for sure. What I really want to know is who's watching the Animals when he goes on Vacation. Listen and enjoy.

Soulful and melodic are just a few of the descriptions for the Voice of Carly DuHain. We hear what started her on her musical journey, was it love of music? Her parents guidance? No, it was a Guy. Take a listen to her story and a couple of songs.
We finally get a little culture in Big Z Broadcast Studio as Joe Kye drops in with his Violin. Just one thing I should warn you about, Never and I mean NEVER call it a Fiddle! He goes CRAZY! Joe is a resent transplant from up north who has been here for a short time but has impressed some of Sacramento's most noted musicians. That is how we got his name. He drops a couple of original Tunes on us, and I'm here to say they sounded Great. You will think so too.

In a world when the name "Britney" (in any incarnation) is synonymous with soulless pop music, one Brittany is aiming to take it back, and add a little soulful rock stank to it! That Brittany is Brittany Vanessa, and she's the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the rock group, The Other Brittany. Brittany sat down with us, along with her bassist (and father), DeVon, to talk about what it's been like for her growing up in a musical family, venturing into songwriting and performing, and dealing with insecurities along the way. We find out what some of her musical influences are, what her goals are for the future, and what it's like to perform in a band with her father. They also perform two songs, and Junior attempts to start a war between her and certain pop singers who deserve it!
