UK based hard rock band Starseed is quickly garnering a buzz across the pond here in the US. I have been reading about them, but they caught my attention again when a couple of their singles were featured on the competition reality TV series “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes” on MTV…debut album “Peace Machine” that was released in the US on February 21…US tour is forthcoming… and so is an interview here on Ifelicious
Someone on Facebook asked me recently, what’s my secret to pushing through that wall? Honestly, I don’t have one. You’ve just got to want something more than you want to give up…As I’m dragging through today trying to make sure those end of the week loose ends are tied up in a nice bow, I found myself singing the chorus from the 80s song “Break My Stride” by Matthew Wilder, from his album “I Don’t Speak the Language,” on replay in my head.
I haven’t blogged about “Glee” yet, but I absolutely love that show. While life has landed me in Ohio, known as the gateway to the midwest, I am tickled that Ohio seems to be referenced over and over as “Average America.” Or, maybe it’s because Ohio and the rest of the midwest is brimming with talent that traces their roots to the midwest. Actually, that is the case for the hit television show “Glee.” Set at McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio, the show’s creator Ian Brennan drew inspiration from his own Prospect High School in Mt. Prospect, Illinois.
After releasing North By Northwest (2005) and Dead Letter Perfect in 2007 (which have led to features on SoulStice in XXL Magazine, The Source, Urb, various other key urban publications and websites), SoulStice returned in 2009 with Beyond Borders, an “international concept album” featuring beats crafted by Belgian producer SBe and vocal collaborations with G.L.C., Kev Brown, Zap Mama, Oddisee and Supastition and included blog favorites “Chi Worldwide Remix” f/G.L.C. & Naledge (Kidz In The Hall) and the controversial “Strange Kind of Love.”
