When I listen to an album that has the ability to take me on a journey of emotions and guides me through a trail of experiences, it is a true gift. The music of the brilliant Michael Marquart and his music project A Bad Think is quite magical and precious and does just that. He recently released his fourth studio album, Sleep this summer through Windmark/The Orchard and I describe it as a “zen inducing musical gem” and it is definitely a must have. It is rich in musical tones, emotion and his passion shines through with each note and lyric.

You may be familiar with Michael from his stint in the 90’s as the drummer for British Grammy Award band, Flock of Seagulls but what I really want you to familiarize yourself is with his solo work. He is the sole member, singer-songwriter of A Bad Think. With songs on the album like On and On, Photographs and Happy Little Pills, you can’t help but feel his voice wrap around you and embrace you as you experience his gift of music. I can’t express enough how impressed I am with his work and we recently had the opportunity to chat with him. We are pleased to bring you that interview here:

* * * * * *

Music Junkie Press: Hi Michael, we are very excited to talk with you. We have been listening to Sleep, which came out earlier this summer, love it. Amazing songs and I can only describe it as a zen inducing musical gem.

Michael:  Michael: What a very nice compliment.

Music Junkie Press: I mean it is really amazing, whatever emotions you are going through, you seem to capture this dark place in a beautiful way. How was the recording process for you, was it as emotional?

Michael:  Ya, It really is. I go in the studio, I am in there all day, no one ever comes in, no one ever bothers me, and I just get lost. I start working on something and five or six hours go by and I kind of even forget where I am and I get kind of taken away. You know I really kind of thrown, taking a ride into the music on all that stuff. So absolutely. It is a very emotional process going through all of it.

Music Junkie Press:  I can imagine. It is definitely very passionate. I have to ask, who did the artwork for work the album cover? Where did that come from?

Michael:  You know it is actually this guy, I commissioned this guy to do this painting and he won Album Cover of the Year for last year with a band called White Lies, I think. And he won Album Cover of the Year throughout the world. He is kind of a local guy and you know I heard he was kind of a starving artist in New York and everything and so I commissioned him to do that painting. And then he was a quarter way into it and then he won this Award and then has this big show in Manhattan and now he is like the man right now.


Music Junkie Press: It is great, the artwork brings out these rich tones and colors which is so much like the music. He captured that perfectly.

Michael:  I know, he did an excellent job and I love it.

Music Junkie Press: Now this is your fifth album for A Bad Think on Windmark Records. What would you say would be more of the inspiration behind this album versus the others.

Michael:  Correct. It is like a nonstop process for me. I keep kind of waiting for the creativity and all that stuff, the writers block, kind of waiting for a dry spell to kind of happen but the ideas just keep coming and coming and coming and I just chug along and it is like I have six songs already going for the next one. It is just something that keeps going on. Some of the albums have kind of a concept feel to them. The Sara Lee album was a concept album but the rest of them were not, they are just songs of where I was at the time and you know what I was thinking about and sounds I was experimenting with so they all sound like they belong on those albums but they are not concept albums. But I just chug along and try to stay out of the way of the songwriting process and let the songs go where they want to go and not get in the way.

Music Junkie Press:  That is it, the songs are so fluid and just flow on the album.

Michael:  I am so lucky or I don’t know if it is luck or a curse. You know, I start thinking about it, thinking about it, day and night and I can’t sleep, I have this melody going through my head and I am just going, “Is this fun or not?”

Music Junkie Press: Yes, it has the pros and cons to it! It is interesting because one of the songs on the album that just grabs me and captivates me is Photographs. What is the history behind that song?

Michael:  Oh, well thank you. I wrote that song on the piano so that is why it is a little bit different sounding than some of the other ones. You know that song is kind of about my daughter, you know she is all about selfies and photographs and all that stuff and eventually all those pictures, these smiles frozen in time, you can’t always go back, so, it is good to keep your eyes looking forward.

Music Junkie Press:  You touched on the fact that we are in this digital age, completely overload it seems but is there something from today’s technology that you wish we would have had growing up?

Michael:  Today’s technology makes it really easy for someone like me to create because I grew up the old fashioned way. There was no autotune, there was no beat detective, none of this stuff. You would have to play stuff from the beginning of the song all the way to the end right and if it wasn’t right, you would have to do it again, and you do it again, again, until you got it right. So you can do so much more creative wise sound sculpturing that you could never do in the past. The stuff in the past is a little more organic and natural feeling and you can’t, you have 16 or 24 tracks or later in the analog world, you could have 48 tracks and that is not a lot of tracks. Most of my stuff, even though it doesn’t sound like it, there is over a 100 tracks on almost all my songs. So, it is, and they are all stereo tracks, you have a click track and an authentic track which uses up two tracks and so there is pros and cons. You kind of lose that kind of natural organic thing, which there is a lot of bands out there kind of getting back into that. Jack White is doing a lot of that stuff. So it is nice to hear that all that is not going away. But it has really given me a way to kind of really express myself. I was a Music Theory Major in College so I understand all the aspects about tones and structured scales and all that stuff. So it works out for me.

Music Junkie Press:  It is nice to see that you bring out the honesty in the music. It seems that it has made it simple for people, it is so easy for anyone with a computer can make music or put a song together but honestly, they are missing something. They can make it, make a song but they can’t bring across that emotion through their music.

Michael:  You are absolutely correct and that is the problem with people that are making music. A lot of people, you know they are trying to catch on to that thing that everyone wants to hear now.  It is like Mumford & Sons, Oh My God how many Mumford & Sons bands are out there. They are everywhere and nobody can think for themselves and that is what keeps it for me because I do my music and you may not like my style of music or you may, or you may not like the sound of my voice or you might, or whatever but it is truly mine and it doesn’t sound like anyone else. I own it, come good or bad, it is mine and a lot of people don’t look at it like that. They try to jump on the hot bandwagon and try to coattail someone’s success.

Music Junkie Press:  So true. Exacty, the uniqueness is gone and it is the thumbprint identity is missing from it all. Now, with the music so emotionally filled with layers, have you been performing it live or can you perform it live?

Michael:  Well, funny you should ask. I just got back from LA and did a week of rehearsals and you know to try and see if I could put this thing together and actually do some live shows and naa, it didn’t go so well. It is hard, you have to understand my music and kind of believe in that stuff. You can‘t just hire a really good sessions player and go, “ok man, this is it, here it is, now go figure this out and play”. I mean they chart it all up and they are playing these parts and it just doesn’t sound right.

Music Junkie Press:  Exactly, I can’t imagine how they can replicate it. Because your music is so wrapped in your passion and emotion and I don’t know how they can capture that as well as you do. That is why the people enjoy the albums so much because you get so much out of it and your mind takes you to wherever you need to go when you listen to it.

Michael:  See, and that is exactly what I hope to achieve. It is people like yourself that really know how to listen to music, it truly is an art to know how to listen to music, to be able to listen to something without judging it and just let it take you where the music goes. You just find yourself going to the places that you never thought were there.

Music Junkie Press:  That is so true. I thank you for the great music! Are you currently working on any videos for the music?

Michael:  There is the On and On single, and we have a video out for that. I don’t know if you checked that out other than they lyric video. We have that out. That is the video for this album and the guy that did is a movie director and the video just came out great. It should be when you go to A Bad Think, it should be on that channel and be the first one that comes up.


Music Junkie Press:  How about if you could go back to your 14 year old self, what advice would you give to yourself at 14?

Michael:  Well, I would tell myself to not deviate from what you really believe in musically. Because when I started playing and started playing in bars at 14 and we were writing music, and we were doing songs that were 20 minutes long that had all these passages and we had all this theatrical stuff going on and it was truly  an experience. Then you kind of, like the band breaks up or something, then you get hired to go and do this other band and you just kind of start band hopping, and you start working your way kind of up the charts and then you find yourself playing Foreigner or Journey songs to make a buck. And you kind of write music that is kind of the music that people are signing so to do exactly what we talked about earlier, to really stay true to yourself musically, because nobody, everyone is unique and every musician has something to say and don’t be afraid of saying what you have to say. Whether people like it or if it fails or not, it is yours and there is no excuse.

Music Junkie Press: Just own it and be honest. So true and great advice. We have to get a lot more of today’s youth into that belief and not follow the cookie cutter bands and such. Then you see a select few who are doing exactly what they want to do and making their own sound, doing what they like, doing what they want. You stick with them for a while and you follow them and then people will find the beauty in it.

Michael:   Plus, even if you don’t like them, but have respect for a band that is not trying to make a buck, they are making the art that they truly believe in. I am not kind of into Country, or that is not kind of my big genre but I really respect those artists, that, that aren’t just trying to cry in my beer with another bad lyric song but are actually taking it seriously and not trying to make a buck but trying to express what they really have to say and I respect that in every genre.

Music Junkie Press: I love it! I like trying to get people to listen to a variety of genres. It has become a checkbox of genres, even sub-genres created but it is neat to see some youth, I know in our area, where they are listening to a variety of styles and not labeling it, or classifying themselves by the genre they listen to. To just listen and it could be many moods you have throughout the day and to listen to a variety of music that encompasses all those moods or emotions and to be open to music.

Michael:  What a nice trend. I could only hope it keeps going in that direction.

Music Junkie Press: Lastly, is there anything that you would like to share with our audience and your fans?

Michael:  I would just like to thank them for listening to my music. I mean that is really the only thing that I can really say, to thank them for listening. I don’t know what else to say. Anyone that listens to my music, I know everyone’s minutes on this Earth is valuable and to spend it listening to what I have to say is really important to me and it really means a lot to me.

Music Junkie Press: We thank you for your gift of music and for Sleep. It is definitely the zen inducing musical gem that everyone should listen to.

Michael: Thank you so much and I really enjoyed speaking with you.

Rockers, Art of Dying from Canada have a constant spot on my daily music playlist.  Their music not only kicks ass in rock n roll but also have such emotionally charged lyrics that many can connect and relate to.  I personally, have experienced the power of healing through music by listening to my favorite Art of Dying songs at one of the hardest times in my life. It truly is music to feed your soul wrapped in blazing rock and roll.  Art of Dying is Jonny Hetherington on Vocals, Greg Bradley on Guitar, Jeff Brown on Drums, Cale Gontier on Bass/Vocals and Tavis Stanley on Guitar and Vocals.

We have been awaiting some news from Art of Dying about the progress of their new album and we have just learned that the new album is FINISHED! They worked in secret and finished the new album which was produced by David Bendeth. It won’t be long now until we get more news on it’s release.

In addition, they  have also announced that they have signed to Eleven Seven Music. Here is the news post which appeared on their site with the news:


It’s been a busy year for Art of Dying as we’ve inked a deal with Eleven Seven Music, (Motley Crue, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Escape The Fate) and finished our new record with David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin, Of Mice & Men) in New Jersey completely under the radar. 

I can’t tell you how excited we are about the new music! Making this album was one of the most intense experiences we’ve ever been through, so we kept things pretty tight lipped in order to focus all of our energy into every lyric, note and beat of the creative process. We’ve seen all of the calls for new music coming in from our fans on our social media channels, and now I’m thrilled to say the record is done, and the wait is almost over!

Many thanks to Allen Kovac, Nikki Sixx and our new family at Eleven Seven Music for aligning their vision with ours and helping us make this album a reality. We’re ecstatic about our new home on the label where we’re joining some amazing bands. North America is home base for Eleven Seven, but they put a ton of weight in touring their bands internationally to places in Europe, Asia and South America. So if you want to see Art of Dying in your back yard, now is the time to speak up and be heard! 

So make sure to visit their social media sites and stay tuned for more new music. You can also head over to Itunes here and make sure you have all of their music in your collection. They are definitely ear porn and you will be hooked! In case you missed our interview with vocalist, Jonny Hetherington, you can read it here.

~ Enjoy, Marisol

Ray Goren

Ray Goren may be only 14 but you would have never guessed with the talent and maturity that he displays in his new EP, Save My Soul. This is one talented young man who has everyone taking notice. His new EP which features 5 emotionally driven songs that will take you on a musical journey of loss, love, hope and so much more. His ability to create a connection with the listener through his songs at such a young age, has me excited for what the future holds for him.

The EP was produced by Justin Glasco and John Sosin and  shows the maturity and songwriting of a master craftsman. Like his previous EP “LA Sessions” (produced by Eddie Kramer), Goren played guitar parts and other instruments while his producers added additional instrumentation and Chaun Horton added drums.


One of my favorite tracks is the inspirational and moving song, Rise Together. It will grab your attention and awaken your senses. The bluesy title track of Save My Soul has such a smooth groove to it and I love the swirling bluesy guitars. Ray’s vocals are inviting and soulful, carrying so much depth and passion for a young man. Quite exceptional from start to finish.  Check out the lyric video for Save My Soul here:

Now head on over to iTunes and pick up the new EP. Make sure to visit his social media sites and stay up to date on the latest news. We will see if we can bring you an interview with this musical prodigy.

“I’m saying hello to a new dream
I’m taking it back what’s left of me
Don’t even try
You can’t stop me now!

I gotta feeling where I used to be numb.
I can feel it now rushing through my blood.
I’m stronger than I ever thought I was,
and now I found another way out of here.”

– Scott Stapp ‘Break Out’ Lyrics

Grammy award winning artist Scott Stapp has been busy touring this summer in support of his spectacular solo album, Proof of Life. This is the second full length album and is quite a personal one for Scott. The album is a collection of amazing rock tracks yet filled with emotionally driven lyrics and sung through the amazingly unmistakable vocals of Scott. Proof of Life is the first new material since Scott‘s release of his 2012 uncensored memoir where he shared his life story of his fundamentalist upbringing, the rise of Creed, his ongoing battle with addiction, the rediscovery of his faith and the launch of his solo career.

The album has been getting rave reviews as it not only satisfies your need for rock, but also provides the listener a connection to the emotional journey of life. Proof of Life was produced by Howard Benson, mixed by Chris Lord-Alge and debuted at #37 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts.  It has been nominated for Rock Album of the Year by the GMA Dove Awards. It is truly no surprise since this album is spectacular on so many levels. With the great success of the album, Scott is setting out on another leg of the US tour in support of the album.

Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to chat with Scott about his upcoming tour, the album and how things are going with his solo career. We are pleased to bring that interview to you here:


So I hope you get a chance to take a look at the tour dates and get yourself to a show.  One thing is for sure, Scott‘s performances provide a night that is truly magical. Whether you are there to rock out, emotionally connect, immerse yourself into song, or to support Scott on his musical journey, it will be a night you will not soon forget.

Last Saturday, we had an amazing time covering the Jason Becker Not Dead Yet 3 Festival at the Great American Music Hall. It was a night full of spectacular music and Richie Kotzen headlined the event after some stellar sets by  Michael Lee Firkins  Spiralarms and Ben Woods.

The event which is put together by Dave Lopez and is a benefit with proceeds going towards medical supplies for Jason as well as his future care. It was a magical night where many great musicians came to honor the amazing fighting spirit of Jason as he battles ALS. Jason was in attendance with his family and friends as we all enjoyed a fantastic night of amazing music.

Richie completely rocked the place and his energy on stage is unstoppable. His passion and emotion came through strongly with each note and word. Richie has one of the most powerful voices out and when he sings, his voice just travels through your body, awakening every sense, inviting you to move and then touches your heart.  It was quite an emotional night for all of us as we all wish the best for Jason in his battle with ALS and you could just feel the intense love for that man in the room from all the musicians. Richie shared the story of when he worked with Jason on his first album and it was great to hear what an impact Jason has made on everyone.

The performance by Richie was simply spot on and spectacular on all levels. Mike Bennett who performed earlier in the night with Ben Woods just killed it on the drums and Dylan Wilson on bass was an energetic wildman! It was one set that I wished would go on all night! Check out the photos of the set by our Rockin Ryan:

Richie set off to start a tour in Spain this month and will return to US for headlining shows in November. In addition, he has just released The Essential Richie Kotzen on Loud & Proud Records and is  a MUST HAVE! We will be bringing you a full album review. For now, check out his newly released video for War Paint here:

Jesse Denaro has announced a US Fall Tour in support of his new album, Dear Love. The tour will also feature Animal Flag. Singer/Songwriter Jesse has done a wonderful job at creating an album full of emotionally driven lyrics, songs that connect the listener and engages them on his musical journey.  It is quite a superb journey to be a passenger on as you will experience the ups and downs of life, love and loss. I can only imagine how wonderful it will be to experience the music live. Jesse posted the following about the tour:

Hey Guys!

This fall I am embarking on my first ever full US tour! I am going out with my best friend Animal Flag and we are supporting both of our new albums (“Dear, Love” & his upcoming self titled EP coming this Fall). Touring takes a lot of time, preparation and money, so if you have a spare dollar or two head over to iTunes, band camp or whatever and pick up “Dear, Love” or any older releases from Matt. All the support is appreciated!
We hope to see you at these shows. Share this post, tag a friend who lives in the area, bring a friend to a show, tell your parents or pets or whatever. Let’s make this awesome.
The shows that say ‘TBA’ we are still looking for shows, so please feel free to help us book those dates. WE WANT TO PLAY SHOWS IN YOUR HOUSE OR VENUE OR WHATEVER FOR YOUR FRIENDS.
Details on each show will be released closer to the start of tour.


The tour poster includes many LA dates and we are hoping that a Northern California one will be added soon. Check the dates and see if they will be coming to a venue near you.


You can pick up Jesse’s new album, Dear Love on  iTunes You can check out one of my favorite tracks, Young & Naive here:


Jesse‘s music is magical and his honest emotions shine through his passionate vocals with such a vulnerability yet a sense of comforting. It is an album that you will fall in love with, regardless of what your main love of music may be. His sound transcends the blurred lines of genres and creates a clarity through song.  I will leave you with my absolute favorite track which I must have played a dozen times this morning! The Grand La Monz:


Make sure to pick up Dear Love on  iTunes and also visit his social media sites and stay up to date on his latest news.
