2,457 views

The Clearwings is an independent alt-folk duo with a focus on the intimacy of live performance. They combine tight harmonies with driving guitar, bringing a modern edge to a classic folk sensibility. The result is a dynamic sound, with influences ranging from 60s greats like Peter, Paul, & Mary, Johnny Cash & June Carter, and Ian & Sylvia, to modern rock interpreters like The White Stripes and The Strokes.

The Clearwings is fronted equally by Raven Adams (vocals & percussion) and Mark Phillips (vocals & guitar). While Raven is native to Santa Cruz, California and Mark from Golden, Colorado, the pair began collaborating on music in college in Maine and moved to Colorado in 2009. They began performing as the Clearwings in December of 2013. Since then, they have been gigging extensively around Denver, recording, and traveling to New Mexico and California for shows. Their sets include standards and covers in addition to ever-increasing original material.

The Clearwings launched their first tour in September 2015, kicking things off in California, and will be on the road through the end of the year.

The Clearwings Are Excited To Be On 7522 Beach Mountain Radio.

About Grace:
Mixing seemingly effortless musicality and original storytelling, Grace Morrison turns deeply personal and historical stories into song for listeners from all walks of life. ”With a crystal clear voice and songs that land squarely in your heart, Grace has something truly special,” says producer/performer Jon Evans of Brick Hill Studios. And Jon should know, he has spent his career playing with the very best singer-songwriters of our generation: Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Ben Folds, and Paula Cole.

2017 marks a turning point for Grace as she released her first full length CD: ”I’m The Apple”. The deeply personal album is full of catchy choruses, history, emotion, and storytelling; all key elements of her unique style.

Grace is a regular on national festival circuit and has won a number of prestigious awards including the Eventide Arts Songwriting Competition and the Big Break contest where her music video was played on the season finale of American Idol.

Grace on Grace:
I like to tell stories stories that, ordinarily, people wouldn’t think about. My latest CD includes songs inspired by World War II, Anne Boleyn, addiction, and new love. But they all relate. We all feel the same things. Love, hate, anger, shame…as a songwriter my job, my passion is to speak for the unspoken, the forgotten. And hopefully do it in a way that has you singing along with me.

Others On Grace:
”I am in awe that such a young woman would do a tribute to those of us who served, and particularly to those who fell. Thank you!” Congressionally chartered Vietnam Veterans of America regarding the song and video ”Taking Johnny Home”

”Her voice is honest and crystal clear and the songs are clever and inspired. As a side note, it is a testament to her talent that Morrison sounds as good live as she does on her record.” Mark Gorman, Newport This Week

”Grace’s captivating stage presence and flawless vocals take only a back seat to her perpetual charm. The combination of laser focus and positive spirit makes her quite an exceptional musician and person.” AMVCreative CEO, Armen Varadian

”Grace’s voice is a reflection of herself–pure and true. She is an incredible talent.”
Bongo Beach Productions, Grammy nominated recording engineer, John Mailloux

Harpeth Rising Joins 7522 Beach Mountain Radio

Harpeth Rising chose to name themselves after a river because water is both dynamic and powerful. These words also describe the music created by the three women – Jordan Greenberg (violin, vocals), Rebecca Reed-Lunn (banjo, vocals) and Maria Di Meglio (cello, vocals). Unapologetic genre-benders, they fuse Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into a sound that is organically unique.

Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianship and a deft, yet soulful lyrical perspective. Harpeth Rising’s roots run deep – from their varied ancestry across Eastern Europe to the musical hotbed of the Mid-South they now call home, they weave together ancient and modern ideas, creating a sound that is both familiar and impossible to categorize.

Harpeth Rising is excited to be heard on 7522 Beach Mountain Radio.

Greg Johnson Joins 7522 Beach Mountain Radio With His Cape Cod Music

1,306 views

Cape Cod has long been known for its pristine beaches, the local surf and art cultures and the live music scene. For three decades, Greg Johnson has been a central part of the Cape’s local color as a Nauset Beach lifeguard legend, professional artist and musician. His James Taylor Tribute Band ‘SHOWER THE PEOPLE’ draws full houses and rave reviews at every show.

Greg comes from a long line of Johnson family artists and has recently made a name for himself as an aquatic artist. He studied art at Ohio Wesleyan and the University of New Hampshire, and is self-taught as a painter. Looking into one of Greg’s large acrylic paintings gives the viewer a feeling of being immersed in the water with the whales and dolphins. For Greg, the aquatic life he paints represents spirituality, peace and freedom.

The inspiration for his work comes from a variety of sources, including his family and aquatic muralist Bob Wyland. Greg also gives motivational credit to the years he has spent at Nauset Beach, where whale and other marine life sightings are an everyday experience.

His work is displayed in galleries, private homes, libraries, banks, coffee shops, and local business offices. Most recently, Greg has opened a gallery and studio in East Orleans.

Greg Johnson is excited that his music is heard on 7522 Radio.
