Guest Biography:

Young Woman on a Mission

I was born in New Britain, CT and raised in Southington, CT. I am also an only child. When I was younger, I was very athletic. I was always playing sports and being active. During the summers I lived on a beach, it was always my favourite spot to be. 

When I got into high school I became a God-mother. Today, my God-daughter is three years old. I focus on spending time with her and help her to become the woman that she is capable of being. This was one of the biggest events in my life because it gave me a responsibility to care for her for the rest of my life. My God-daughter, Brooklyn, is one f the main reasons that I want to do well in life. 

Spinal Fusion

Two of the hardest events that I have overcome in my life are my back surgeries. Having one in 2010 and one in 2012, I had a rough high school career. I was in and out of the hospital and finally ended with rods and screws holding up my spine. I look at these events as a learning source teaching me that I can push through anything standing in the way of me being successful.

Haiti Mission

In high school, I also got into missionary work. I began going on trips to Haiti. There, I stay at an orphanage. I help take care of the children, I make home visits around the village, I visit the sick and elderly, and I raise money to help it become a better place. I have started leading my own trips to Haiti during the summer. I also spent Spring Break '14 performing mission work in New Orleans, Louisiana. While I was there we helped to paint the exterior of a house, put up walls in another house, and even paint one woman's porch and living room along with gardening work and talking with the locals. Missionary work is something that is very important in my life and something that I see myself doing for the rest of my life.

One day I hope to own my own non-profit organization in Haiti. 

Al is a loyal, focused, motivated, hard-working, confident, and realistic person. In addition, having a good sense of humor has allowed her to build long-lasting relationships. Throughout her career, these attributes have served her well.

Success doesn't fall from the sky, it takes hard work, dedication, and commitment to winning. As a voracious reader and a serial question-asker, she is constantly in search of knowledge.

Al spends her free time drag racing in the NHRA D1 Circuit, doing yoga, volunteering in Haiti and the local community church, and cooking.

Joe Louis Walker
Guest Occupation: Legendary Blues Guitarist-Singer-Songwriter-Producer
Guest Biography:

W  A  L  K  E  R

LEGENDARY BLUES GUITARIST/SINGER/SONGWRITER/PRODUCER

NEW RELEASE

B L U E S   C O M I N'   O N

with all-star cast of musicians

 

Joe Louis Walker picked up the guitar as a child, and by the time he was 16, was an in-demand musician on the local club scene, regularly backing touring blues artists rolling through town. As a 16-year-old, he was the house guitarist at San Francisco’s famed musical playground, The Matrix, where he played with or opened shows for everyone from Lightnin’ Hopkins to Jimi Hendrix to Thelonious Monk. In addition to his work at The Matrix, he was a regular at Bill Graham’s famed Fillmore West. San Francisco’s music scene was quickly becoming a melting pot of blues, jazz and psychedelic rock, and Walker was right in the center of it. These ear-opening surroundings explain the ease with which Walker blends blues, rock, gospel, jazz and country, making it seem as if the walls between the genres never existed in the first place.

The blues legends Walker accompanied shared not only musical knowledge but also their personal wisdom with the teenage up-and-comer. Fred McDowell, Ike Turner, Albert King, Freddie King, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Lightnin’ Hopkins and many others taught, fed and chastised the youngster. Blues icon Willie Dixon told him to set his sights high. “What’s your style? You need your own sound,” Dixon preached. Walker took the advice to heart and developed his own fiery, melodic and always unpredictable guitar attack.

Walker met legendary guitarist Michael Bloomfield in 1968 and the two became fast friends. Bloomfield introduced Walker to many of the day’s top rockers, including Sly Stone, Carlos Santana, Steve Miller, Bob Weir (of the Grateful Dead), Jorma Kaukonen (of Jefferson Airplane) and even jazz legend Wayne Shorter. Bloomfield helped push Walker’s blues in a more rock-fueled direction, and he became the single biggest influence on the young Walker’s sound. The two shared an apartment for years and remained close friends until Bloomfield’s death in 1981.

Walker has released 24 albums and toured the world virtually non-stop. He has garnered four Blues Music Awards (and has been nominated a whopping 52 times) and holds an international reputation as one of the blues’ most prolific and talented stars. He’s also recorded as a guest with some of the blues world’s best-known artists, including appearances on Grammy-winning records by B.B. King and James Cotton.

His latest release is entitled BLUES COMIN' ON joined by a host of talented friends and peers on this superb studio album. Features guest performances by fellow blues icons Keb' Mo', Eric Gales, and Albert Lee plus Detroit soul singer Mitch Ryder, harmonica virtuoso Lee Oskar, Hot Tuna's Jorma Kaukonen, punk rock vocalist Charlie Harper, legendary session player Waddy Wachtel, and many others. This album explodes with the passionate playing and souful melodies that have made Walker a favorite among true blues aficionados including The Rolling Stones!  -Available at amazon.com

Guest Biography:

Aly Conyers is a 17-year-old student who attends a private high school in South Carolina. A three time all-American sprinter, Aly was supposed to spend this summer competing at track and field events.

Aly grew up surrounded by officers in uniform. Her father was in the Army, and her family has lived on military bases in Toronto, Seoul and Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. She has been raised with deep respect for the military, but also with an understanding of racial injustice in the world. 

Her father encouraged her to read James Baldwin and Malcolm X from a young age. She vividly remembers her first protest: She was about 11, on vacation in Chicago, when her family decided to join a Black Lives Matter march. And now, Aly is leading marches in Washington, DC.

Aly created a group with her older brother Ace Conyers and a friend called Faces of the Future, hoping to get other teenagers more involved beyond the protests in DC.

REVERED SINGER

DAUGHTER OF LEGENDARY BLUES ICON

B. B. K I N G

NEW RELEASE WITH ALL-STAR CAST OF MUSICIANS

'B L U E S  F O R  A  K I N G'

 

Born and raised in West Memphis, Arkansas, Shirley began singing in the church choir at age nine. When she was thirteen, she met another music legend – Etta James. 

Young Shirley was so impressed by Etta’s performance that she made Etta her musical role model. Ruth Brown and the late Mahalia Jackson also greatly influenced the fledgling singer.
Shirley says, “I grew up around the stage watching my dad become famous, but I never imagined I’d become a blues singer too.” 

Ms. King came late to the blues, first trying it on in 1990. Within six months, she was a regular performer at famed Chicago blues club Kingston Mines. Two years later she released her first CD, “Jump Through My Keyhole.” 

In 1999, Shirley released her highly acclaimed blues album, “Daughter of the Blues,” which featured her soulful, bluesy versions of classics like Wang Dang Doodle, Sweet Home Chicago, Every Day I Have the Blues and, fittingly, The Thrill is Gone.

Once her father caught her act he lent his full support to Shirley’s efforts at carving out her own career.  She admits that having a legendary father helped open some doors for her, but it was her talent, charisma and high-energy stage presence, along with her big, beautiful singing voice, that put her on the musical map.  

From traditional blues to gospel to funky R&B to smooth soul, Shirley defies genre and her singing and stage antics never fails to excite her growing number of fans worldwide. 

Shirley also believes in giving back. She has also worked with kids as an artist-in-residence with the highly acclaimed Urban Gateways Arts in the Schools Program at Chicago Public Schools and continues to expose school children to the history blues has played in American culture. 

Shirley also published her memoirs in 2017 entitled Love is King, which is dedicated to her father and goes into detail about her life with her dad, to whom she was very close. 

Blues Hall of Fame guitarist Joe Louis Walker, who guests on two tracks on the new album, said, “I’ve had the honor of performing on two B.B. King albums.  Now I have the distinct honor and pleasure of playing on his daughter’s album, Shirley King, who is also my dear friend.  Keep the thrill goin’ on Shirley….”

With her powerful voice and outgoing personality, Shirley always rocks the house whether it’s on an international stage, a festival or a nightclub.  

She’s ready to bust out bigger than ever on her own in a way that would make her daddy proud.  Make sure to come along for the ride.

As an attorney and small business owner I’ve seen the effects of too many regulations and taxes that are too high.  California is becoming unaffordable for working families and that is making it impossible for our children to be able to plan a future here.

I am currently a practicing lawyer in Ventura County as well as the Dean of a California law school. I live in Oak Park with my husband Michael and our six-year-old triplets, Annabel, Bianca, and Liam.

DRUMMER

RELEASES NEW ALBUM OF RETRO POP SONGS

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

 

Legendary Alice Cooper Group drummer Neal Smith released a new album on June 1st, 2020. Neal’s new Retro Pop album is titled “POP 85/95” signifying the music style and time period in which Neal wrote these songs between 1985 and 1995.The songs and album concept are totally sexy and politically incorrect. Neal’s “POP 85/95” songs represent all aspects of relationships, falling in and out of love in a simpler bygone era before Coronavirus, politically correctness and the new world disorder.

With the onslaught of glam hair bands and heavily homogenized rock of the 1980’s, Neal Smith, Hall of Fame Drummer and founding member of the original Alice Cooper Group, was looking for a new direction for his songwriting. Inspired by another drummer, songwriter, singer Phil Collins, Neal turned from writing hard rock to a slicker, more pop rock songwriting style. In the late 1980’s he took four of his new songs into the studio and recorded them. One of the songs “Secret Eyes” helped land a recording deal with newly formed record company called Grudge Records. Along with Dennis Dunaway (Alice Cooper fame), Joe Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult fame), Charlie Hune (Ted Nugent fame) and lead guitarist Jay Jesse Johnson (also known as “Triple J”), a new band called “Deadringer” was formed and signed by Grudge Records. Deadringer recorded an album in 1989 called “Electrocution Of The Heart” featuring the single “Secret Eyes.” The album and Deadringer were all short lived after Grudge Records quick demise. After Deadringer and well into the 1990’s, Neal continued writing songs with Jay Jesse Johnson (“Triple J”) in this pop rock style.

Decades later, well into the New Millennium, Neal was searching through his archives of music and found those songs that he composed and recorded with ‘Triple J” between the years of 1985 and 1995. Inspired by “Triple J’s” amazing lead guitar work, Neal polished the songs and brought them back to life with the help of two of his best friends, Peter Catucci (bass guitar of Killsmith) and Rick Tedesco (guitarist/engineer). Now, much to the excitement of his fans worldwide, Neal Smith’s “POP 85/95” is available digitally and on CD!

City and state officials had deployed thousands of National Guard soldiers, enacted strict curfews and shut down mass transit systems, but that did little to stop many cities from again erupting into unrest.

Protesters in Philadelphia hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police, officials said, while masked crowds broke into upscale stores in a San Francisco suburb, fleeing with bags of merchandise. In Minneapolis, a truck driver drove into a massive crowd of demonstrators nearly a week after the death of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded for air as an officer pressed a knee into his neck.

Conservative political commentator Kathy Barnette shares how liberal leadership has failed the black community and how being a democrat is not synonymous with your skin color. 
 
During his first historic run for the presidency in 2016, Donald Trump made an impassioned plea to the black community. "Give me a chance," he said. "What the hell do you have to lose?" 
 
According to Kathy Barnette, black Americans have nothing to lose, except for crime ridden communities, neighborhoods that have become shooting galleries, more social welfare programs, and the mocking indifference of the Democrat party. Barnette argues that even a cursory look into the black community reveals the destabilizing effect liberal policies have had on the black family. 
 
There was a time when Barnette bought into the same lie as everyone else-that if you're black, you must be a democrat. In fact, she was born into the Democrat party just as much as she was born into brown skin. There was no point of separation. Until she began to understand what it truly means to be black in America. Barnette contends that being black is more than just the color of her skin. It's a culture and a consciousness, too. 
 
In NOTHING TO LOSE, EVERYTHING TO GAIN, Barnette writes about why liberal policies have failed the black community time and time again - and will fail the larger American community as Democrats rush to the hard Left of the party. From the "Great Society" to Kanye West's ongoing war with the liberal establishment, this book provides sharp, eloquent commentary on the most pressing issues facing black Americans today: broken family structure, loss of identity, the legacy of slavery, and more.
 
Barnette argues that President Trump has not been willing to presume that the "black vote" is a foregone conclusion resting comfortably in the back pockets of Democrats. With his plainspoken style and willingness to face harsh truths, the president has done more for the black community than any president since Abraham Lincoln. Barnette insists the time is now to get back what has been lost, to fix the brokenness, and to recognize and support those who are actually working in our favor. 
 
We have nothing to lose, and even more to gain.
