    good story - money quote: "...McKenna has become formidable in country music, co-writing nearly 100 songs a year."                                          ...that's a song every 3.65 days(!)

    The article about EGREM (the Cuban studio) in the same issue is also interesting.

    Hi folks. I'm actively looking for  two people musicians and writers.   On the mature side, 40s maybe 50's. Male female doesn't matter.   Sirius original songwriters who can play and sing and write. Just finished my 7th album and would love to start something playing out at meaningful venues. Acoustic only, sorry no kids. Let me know.   For lack of anything to reference to, maybe Lady Antebellum. Great vocals and writing. Multi instrument would be nice. I play guitar mandolin and dobro. Let me know, thanks and hope to see everybody soon. Tom

    Just moved here a couple of weeks ago. Relocated because it's a great music scene. Could use a little help from my fellow Riders if you know of any simple affordable  room to rent, I could use all the help I can get. Southern Maryland or Rockville Bethesda area, E-Tec. Let me know. It would be most appreciated. Tom the music alive

    I’m now relasing music under the stage name Zadok Strawberry, and I have a new EP , “Songs For Nemisis”. It is now live on Spotify, Apple Music, etc. I think I’m doing a better production job than my other releases, and trying to make it more compelling and concise. I played and recorded everything you hear, with Shisha McKee adding vocals on one track. I would love feedback, even if you don’t feel as good as I (sometimes) feel about it!

    About Cargo & the Heavy Lifters

    Cargo & the Heavy Lifters formed in the Summer of 2015 and met with immediate success. The powerful and soulfully irresistible voice of Randy McCargo is backed up by the Heavy Lifters, veteran musicians who play slick-tight compositions and arrangements of standards that shatter the expectations of any audience. CHL aggressively tackles any genre from any decade with the same energy and mastery. On any given night they can be as good as the best Rock, Blues, Country, and Soul bands, all at the same time. CHL released their first CD, Live at Jammin' Java in November of 2016. The hit single Hello Josephine! played on over 100 broadcast radio stations and a dozen internet stations worldwide. On any given day you can hear CHL in over 50 countries (including the US of course) on 160 broadcast stations. When Habit of You is released in the Spring it will play in 43 countries on the first day.

    “With groovy guitar licks and bursting soulful lyrics, Cargo & The Heavy Lifters provide an exemplary look at what American music sounds like. With covers and originals, the group focuses on the old school aspects of blues, rock and even country. The booming voice of Randy McCargo make this group a must see, as his dynamic voice is a rarity in the modern scope of music. From the sound to their attire, this band is wonderfully old school, and as their website exclaims “awesome.””
