Autumn 'Journalist' Update: Sneak Preview

Posted by Kathy Jo Keller on August 28, 2014 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Hi Everyone,

 

All good things must end, they say, and that includes Summer Vacation...but what a fun memorable music mix Summer 2014 turned out to be!

 

Keltfest, Castlefest, Park Pop, Waterpop, North Sea Jazz Festival, Kristoffer Gildenlow, The Royal Spuds, Rastaban, Golden Earring; and I've had the pleasure of interviewing so many amazingly talented musicians this summer, plus I've made many nice contacts for future interviews. As though that were not enou...

The Real Thing: Interview/Promos/Article

Posted by Kathy Jo Keller on May 26, 2014 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (0)

As many of you know, my old blog crashed a few months ago! :(

Happy to say announce that another artist update is completed for 'Mission Blog Repair'!


Since I've been following this band since 2001, it is logical to assume a nice friendship has developed over the years. :)  My husband and I try to get out to a gig at least twice per year.



It doesn't matter if it is a performance of The Real Thing (U2 covers) or The Next Thing (All cov...

As many of you know, my old blog crashed a few months ago! :(

Happy to say announce that another artist update is completed for 'Mission Blog Repair'!

Ivo has been very busy since our last encounter; I popped in to see him play at a small benefit concert several months back, and it is past time for a second interview with this fantastic singer-songwriter. 

I really want to hear all about his latest tour with his new band promoting the new album; the pub tour through Ire...

The Royal Spuds: Interview & Promo

Happy to say another artist update is completed for 'Mission Blog Repair'!

No matter your mood, there is a song from The Royal Spuds that will fit the occasion. We visited relatives in South Africa last week and I have a fond memory of bouncing around in the back of a jeep on a 4x4 trip on our way to Bulshoek Dam with The Royal Spuds basting in my earphones! 

Enjoy our fun and quirky interview and check back soon for my review of Keltfest, where I look forward to yet another ...

Nax & The New Shining blog posts have finally been repaired and are ready for you to 're-share'. :)


As my 'Mission Blog Repair' Continues... it was obvious that one band was my major obsession. (Obviously, I was honest when I said The New Shining was my all time favorite!) :)


From my first blog post (May/2013) promoting the 3FM Serious Talent Tour, until the last segment of my interview series with Nax, where he discusses the years with The ...

Today the 'bookblogworld' link was deleted. I have sent an email to my publisher, SBPRA in America to find out what the problem is with the site. 

Happily, I had copy/paste all articles to a Google Blogger site. 

All interviews can be found at above link. Cheers, Kathy

Here it is! Thank you for your patience. There was a small time delay due to technical issues of installing a 'translation' tool.  Default the article to your 'Native Language', and let me know in the comments if translation is accurate. (Original text is written in English, naturally.) :)

Hello all of my supportive friends and fans,

Still trying to work out the most efficient way to utilize social media. :)  Some follow me on Facebook, more follow my Twitter, even larger group follow my Journalist Blog. In order to reach a very large group of followers who avoid FB & Twitter, I need to send out emails via Google +, Link'd In, and the list goes on and on.

The only Social Media that I actually pay for is this author website. As in, I actually own this domain...

Nax: Up Close and Personal

Posted by Kathy Jo Keller on March 21, 2014 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (0)

It’s hard to do the right thing

All the noise around me makes my head spin

When everybody’s telling you what to do

It’s best to stick to your plan, and just follow through”

 

The above quote from Do The Right Thing, quite sums up the creative genius of Nax, who has become well known in the Netherlands as front-man for The New Shinining (TNS). One thing that I’ve discovered in the past six months of interaction with this talented...
