Loudini interviews Jonathan Cavier

Blue Room is Cavier’s second full-length album, and the followup to 2016’s Premier release and contains the new single “When You Come Around”

(Los Angeles, CA) May 4, 2017 – Pop singer-songwriter Jonathan Cavier is preparing for the release of his second solo album, Blue Room, which will be released via iTunes and all major digital outlets on May 12. Blue Room’s first single, “When You Come Around,” was recently released on April 21 and the video for the song will be released next week in advance of the full album. On “When You Come Around,” Sting’s influence can be heard as Cavier passionately sings about his desire to connect with someone special over an affective acoustic melody. There is raw emotion in both Cavier’s voice and lyrics on Blue Room showing an artist that has a deep strength in communicating emotion to his listeners. Blue Room’s sound is a continuation and maturation of the sound from Cavier’s first solo album, Premier, as both of these releases blend together pop influences from the 80s, 90s and music of today. On Blue Room, Cavier continues to “transport listeners to colorful three-minute worlds,” a process he started with the 2016 release of Premier.




Cavier’s time in the atmospheric pop duo EyeTalk gave him years of experience and exposure in countries all over the world. With the maturation of his songwriting and composition and the wide array of generational influences on Blue Room’s ten tracks, one can see an artist truly coming into his own.


About Jonathan Cavier
Phoenix-based singer-songwriter and pop performer Jonathan Cavier is no stranger to writing catchy tunes that blend wide-ranging influences into a multi-faceted yet cohesive sound. Originally from Northern California, Cavier (“cav-AIR”) moved to Phoenix, AZ where he performed as Alan Clark in the atmospheric pop duo, EyeTalk. Over the course of 10 years and five albums, this venture saw their music reach international audiences in Italy, the UK, and Australia. After five albums and hundreds of shows played throughout the US, Alan Clark has reintroduced himself under the pseudonym Jonathan Cavier. With one solo album, Premier, already under his belt, Cavier further defines his sound on 2017’s 10-song release entitled Blue Room. In addition to his musical endeavors, Cavier is a semi-professional tennis player and a member of the USTA and IFT. Cavier says practicing and playing in tournaments is “the fountain of youth.”

Hard Rock Singer Songwriter Chris Cornell

This week  Lou and Keith celebrate the life of late great Chris Cornell. The guys will share some interesting facts and stories about Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of The Dog alumni  Featured Loudini Artists:  Bridge To Mars  Four Sticks  Freerock Saints












Bridge to Mars
"Quality from start to finish, Bridge To Mars have the potential to make some serious waves in the world of classic rock with this debut album"
Jim Rowland, Uberrock

Not just a copy of course,Bridge To Mars have made their own wonderful way. They learned from a master, they run with the best, they make a stupendous noise.
All aboard!
9 out of 10
Steve Swift, Powerplay magazine UK

"Bridge To Mars is spot on target. If you like the genre, you will love this album"
Craig Hartranft, Dangerdog

"So I think it’s fairly obvious that I rather like this release and if 70’s rock / hard rock is your bag , then you will too."
Dan Mann, Rockposer

"All in all a killer debut for this power trio, a band I’d really like to see live, where I think the songs will really come alive. Highly recommended!"
Janne Starck

So, on closing, if your into MetalCore, Djent, Thrash metal etc. then you may think this isn’t gonna be your cuppa tea. However, like everyone else who is into Rock or Metal or every genre and era, you will always listen to the likes of Zep, Cream, The Who etc., and if you liked these, then you will love Bridge To Mars. This albums sound, has its roots well and truly planted in the late 60’s and 70’s early classic rock, psychedelia era, but with an all important 2016 contemporary take on it. This is one classy album. Buy it! You sure as hell won’t be disappointed.

Would I buy it? – Yes, and I did, and so should you!

Would I recommend it? – Most definitely!

Would I pay good money to see them live? – Without hesitation. JJ Marsh is without doubt one of the greatest guitarists to grace this planet.

Overall –
Rating – 5 out of 5

Loudini Interviews Amilia K Spicer

As the lyric from her song “Shotgun” implies, singer-songwriter Amilia K Spicer has a thing for wide-open spaces and exotic places. Even her record label name, Free Range, reflects her vagabond spirit—which has carried her from the rolling green hills of her native Pennsylvania, to the hill country of central Texas, and even the mountain monasteries of Nepal. She lives in Los Angeles and Austin, but she might tell you she feels most rooted when she’s heading toward a distant horizon, guided by the sky. Her label’s motto? “Don’t fence me in.”

The songs on her new album, Wow and Flutter, capture the vastness of those horizons with a cinematic quality, somehow sweeping us into the panorama as we listen. It should surprise no one that she pursued a career in film before music became her muse.





When Spicer answered music’s call, she was first discovered at a Los Angeles club. That led to a rare main stage Kerrville Folk Festival debut, three Kennedy Center performances, song placements in several high-profile TV productions (Party of Five, Dawson’s Creek), and more. Spicer’s first two releases, Like an Engine and Seamless were released to critical acclaim, with New Texas Magazine calling Spicer “A formidable talent.” Spicer’s music has also earned comparisons to that of Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, and Lanois. During the writing process for Wow and Flutter, Spicer took time to work on several other projects. Among these, she has been lauded for her contributions to Cinnamon Girl: Women Artists Cover Neil Young and A Case for Case: A Peter Case Tribute with John Prine. She also appeared on the 2009 Safety Harbor Kids Holiday Collection, alongside Jackson Browne, Sheila E, and Paul Barrere. Spicer has enjoyed other collaborations as well, most notably appearing on albums by John Gorka and the final Rounder release from the late Bill Morrissey.

Spicer describes her folk-Americana style as red-dirt noir, evoking majestic vistas—and shadowy mysteries. Crafted on piano and more recently, guitar, her richly textured songs are sung in a honeyed alto that’s equal parts earthy and airy. Her sound is like glass: spun from sand and fire into something smooth and clear. And sometimes beautifully etched—with acid. The album’s title, a reference to pitch changes caused by imperfections in analog audio, was chosen in part because the sounds so sensual. “Wow and flutter reminds me of wax and wane, ebb and flow,” Spicer says. “Or something opening and closing, like a heart.” Moon, tide and heart fluctuations—and other natural-world phenomena—are part of Wow and Flutter’s essence. Its songs carry titles such as “Lightning,” “Windchill” and “Wild Horses”; they mention hurricanes, open flames and stones polished in the rain. A hoot owl calls at the start of “Shotgun,” which turns Native American- and African-influenced vocal undulations and delicate slide guitar into a truly hypnotic reverie. There’s an intimate sensuality, too, but it’s as if she’s dancing behind a veil, letting her music reveal what it may. However, in “Fill Me Up,” the western-tinged first track, when she sings the line, Shenandoah’s got secrets so deep, we can infer she’s talking about more than a mountain. In the soaring “What I’m Saying,” she declares her intent to find her purpose and place in the world. “I want to be a force to be reckoned with,” Spicer asserts. “I want to cause a beautiful commotion.“

Loudini Interviews Julio Duran of Polar Waves

Flashback to an idyllic formative moment: Polar Waves singer-songwriter Julio Duran is home in Chile during a cold snap. The country is in the grip of a polar vortex, but he’s indoors staying warm with his buddies and some booze. His wanderlust to break out of a safe existence is hibernating and he’s in the moment. It’s a short-lived time of serenity before Julio heeds the call of his soul to bravely venture into an unknown future, in an unfamiliar country.

This winter Julio shares his journey with Polar Waves’ debut album, No One Needs Help Anymore, a visceral collection of unguarded emotionality and blood raw rock n’ roll produced by modern rock legend John Keane (R.E.M./Widespread Panic).





“It’s been quite a trip for me since I came to this country about 10 years ago,” the Athens Georgia-based artist says.
