"When I wrote this song I knew no one in the industry. I had no money, and I had no plans of moving to music city. I decided to work hard, where i was, with what i had, This song is about the one thing every singer dreams about: being on the radio.

The viola da gamba is a versatile bowed and fretted instrument with ancient roots in Moorish Spain and Renaissance and Baroque Europe. As much a jazz or rock improvisor as an interpreter of ancient music, Gerald Trimble sails the viola da gamba out of its accepted role in historical performance and into a much deserved role as a world instrument.
Jason Vivone
Jason Vivone
"KC bluesman Jason Vivone is a storyteller extraordinaire, telling tales that can make you laugh or cry, sing along or sit and think. Perhaps it is too simplistic though to call him a “bluesman” as he definitely pushes the blues envelope not just beyond the traditional boundaries, but beyond many traditional offshoots as well. His music backdrops are eclectic – he is unafraid to break away from any blues purist ideology and twist the music into his own signature version of it”
