It has been quite a year so far for the young metal band, Unlocking the Truth. The band with young members of 12/13 years old have been taking the metal scene by surprise and everyone has been talking about them. They were the youngest band to ever perform at this year’s Coachella Festival. Not only that, but many considered them to be the highlight of the festival.

The young band Unlocking The Truth are from Brooklyn, New York. At the young ages of twelve and thirteen these three kids are skilled musicians and have everyone taking notice of their exceptional talent. Unlocking The Truth are currently scheduled to open once again for Guns n Roses this weekend at their Las Vegas Hard Rock Residency. They are then scheduled for several more dates and festivals to include Heavy Montreal Festival on August 9th which will include headliners Slayer and Metallica. Amazing that such a young band is already achieving what other bands take years to conquer.

One thing is for sure, Unlocking The Truth deliver explosive live sets that leaves everyone in awe. Here are their upcoming show dates in case you will be able to catch them live:

  • JUNE 6         Las Vegas, NV            The Joint – supporting Guns N’ Roses
  • JUNE 7         Las Vegas, NV            The Joint – supporting Guns N’ Roses
  • JULY 11        Camden, NJ               Susquehanna Bank Center/Warped Tour
  • JULY 12        Wantagh, NY              Nikon At Jones Beach Theater/Warped Tour
  • JULY 13        Hartford, CT                Comcast Theatre/Warped Tour
  • JULY 15        Burgettstown, PA        First Niagara Pavilion/Warped Tour
  • JULY 18        Rochester, NY            Main Street Armory – supporting Queens Of The Stone Age
  • JULY 20        Philadelphia, PA          Skyline Stage At The Mann Center For The Performing Arts – supporting Queens Of The Stone Age
  • AUGUST  9         Montreal, QC              Parc Jean Drapeau – Heavy Montreal Festival
  • AUGUST 23        Brooklyn, NY              Commodore Barry Park – Afropunk Festival

 

I can only imagine what the future has in store for this young metal band that write and create their own lyrics and music. The trio has already appeared on national television (CNN, Fuse and more – click here to check out their performance on FXX’s “Totally Biased”), performed at such high-profile music festivals as SXSW and AfroPunk and has been featured in such major outlets as Spin, The Huffington Post, Revolver, Loudwire, Vibe and more. The band recently signed with The Cherry Party record label, and will soon head into the studio to record their debut solo album; more details to be announced shortly.   Make sure to visit their social media sites so you can stay up to date.

Let me introduce you to  Traedonya. Traedonya was raised in New York City and she surrounded herself with all kinds of music from Hip Hop, Funk and Rock. She truly is a lover of a variety of music and with those influences has created her own unique sound.   Traedonya has been dubbed the ‘The Bride of New Funk Hipopera” and she surely lives up to that title with her fusion of  hip hop, jazz, and her vocal range.

Traedonya has launched her pre-orders for her new EP, “High Fructose Corn Syrup” through a PledgeMusic campaign. Traedonya says, I don’t believe in genres, I believe in the song married with the music. As I am in life, I wish not to be placed in a box with my music. I am excited to be working with Pledge Music on my solo debut project. After having the meeting with them, I felt this was a perfect marriage. This is the 2014 music industry!  

 

As part of the campaign there will be various merchandise and perks for fans to get involved. Pledge Music gives her fans and those who are interested in the artist to go thru the whole journey with TRAEDONYA!  This will allow all pledgers to become patrons of the arts in modern society. In ancient Rome, this was how artists were allowed to bring their passion and vision to life.

As part of the campaign TRAEDONYA! will launch her personal brand with her own line of Hip Opera Gloves featuring her new logo. We were seeking a product that would be a fit for TRAEDONYA! and felt that gloves were a perfect because over the years  she always wore them. It was a natural extension who she truly is. The gloves are tasteful yet current in fashion Prohibition’s Ambassador At Large A.K Smith-Ford.  Prohibition has partnered with http://thefuturehasnomemory.com to assist in the roll out of the Gloves.

The Campaign just isn’t about TRAEDONYA!. An integral part of this campaign will be the St. Judes Childrens Hospital. The mission of St Judes research is to advance cures and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay for care.  This has made me very happy to be able to assist this great institution says TRAEDONYA!.

Unlocking The TruthCoachella Festival was treated to an amazing performance by the pre-teen metal band, Unlocking The Truth from Brooklyn, New York. At the young ages of twelve and thirteen these three kids are skilled musicians and have everyone taking notice of their exceptional talent. Unlocking The Truth were one of the inaugural performances on the main stage Saturday and their explosive live set generated a massive circle pit and left the crowd crying out for more. 

Of their set The Los Angeles Times declared, “Playing a hard distorted blend of metal, speed punk and alternative rock on the main stage, they were as well-practiced as units three times their age” while Buzz Bands LA avowed that the band “overpowered an ever-growing mass of moshing festival-goers with the heaviest metal in Indio this side of Motorhead…Malcolm Brickhouse, Jarad Dawkins and Alec Atkins play their instruments better than most bands on the bill…”

Electric Black Horse

Remember a time when Sexy Rock and Roll was the music of the scene? You were treated to rock and roll full of catchy hooks, sexy flash and flare that left you begging for more. The time has come for Electric Black Horse to revive our need for Sexy Rock and Roll baby! They not only carry the glitz and sexy glam but have the rock and roll to back it up.

Straight from New York City are four guys bent on delivering rock and roll complete with their high energy and  glam-tastic flare. They are known to have an amazing stage presence and always give it 150%. I am hoping that they will be coming out to California now that I am hooked on them! Want a taste of them, well then check out my favorite song, Boys and Girls from them “Cheap Party Favors

 

Electric Black Horse is Michael Pate on Vocals/Guitar, Merx on Lead Guitar, JT Hardy on Bass and Shane Considine on Drums. Combined, they bring to life the groove and attitude amidst harmonious vocals and rockin tunes.

Another one of the songs that I love is Champagne on Ice, where you will be singing along in no time and ready to have some fun. It reminds me of mix of early Van Halen, T. Rex and Kiss.   You are going to love them. You can pick up their new CD, Cheap Party Favors which is available on CD Baby here, Itunes here, and Amazon here. Head on over and pick up your copy today!  We will see if we can bring you an interview soon.

Let me introduce you to  Traedonya. Traedonya was raised in New York City and she surrounded herself with all kinds of music from Hip Hop, Funk and Rock. She truly is a lover of a variety of music and with those influences has created her own unique sound.   Traedonya has been dubbed the ‘The Bride of New Funk Hipopera” and she surely lives up to that title with her fusion of  hip hop, jazz, and her vocal range.

“Another Lie” was produced by Large Professor and has been described as an anthem song for females. The story of the song is something that I am sure lots of ladies have experienced. The song not only features Traedonya‘s lyrical acumen but the jazzy vibe and instrumentals will have you reminiscing of classic R&B/Jazz. It is refreshing to see a new generation add their own influences and create an entire new subgenre. That is what Traedonya has done and I look forward to hearing more.

“Another Lie” is the first song of her new EP, “High Fructose Corn Syrup” which is set to release in July. You can take a listen right here and you will be singing it in no time:
