My good friend Fiona is doing a regular fetaure on Solar Radio http://www.solarradio.com/ – The Juice – Live and direct from New York and in her own words –
” I wanted to inform you that I’m doing a segment on John Dean’s radio show from NY- The Juice live and direct- basically informing people with some new music and telling his audience what’s hot and happening in NY.
I hope you can tune in.
Tonight I just finished— I previewed 5 artists with new tracks.
‘If You Want Me’
Jennifer Johns from Oakland
‘Chasing The Sun’ an exclusive track
HERO- from Canada– off an upcoming album called ‘ Salvation Army’ called ‘What We Gonna Do’
Stephen Simmonds from Sweden— soul artist that’s big over there…’America to Africa’ off the album called ‘ For Father’ and I ended the show with Panamanian Lyricist/Vocalist ALOE BLACC with his upcoming solo album ‘Shine Through’ called ‘I’m Beautiful’.
A great selection if I may say so myself.
Let me know if you can give this some love— I think it has great potential for The Juice and increasing listenership.
Jennifer Johns, of course, is a friend of the site – http://www.lifeandsoulpromotions.co.uk – having been featured previously.
Hope it goes well Fiona and good luck
