Airport Impressions (Let it Shine)....Malta

Many lasting impressions this band leaves behind in their wake after a show or just listening to their very stylish professional sound.
Airport Impressions flying all the way in from the tiny Mediterranean island nation of Malta. There's no where in the world that's safe from the clutches of the Halshack!!..lol
Let it Shine.... off their 2nd album release "Marietta". Amazing song with thundering drums and stellar vocal work as well as a diverse fantastic rhythm section, its no wonder this band was my mystery spotlight for Episode 7.
Be sure to check out their excellent spotlight article written by master blogger M. Stuart Persson and be sure to take a listen to episode 7 where I featured 4 songs by this talented quartet from Malta!!

Airport Impressions (While You Wait)... Malta

I swear this is the next BIG U2 type band. There hasnt been a U2 since well.... U2 (lol) but they have that sound and festival fare. Look for this band to be flying to airports all over the world and leaving good impressions in their wake. Also a little birdie told me I'm going to be featured in their EPK going out to several industry leaders and record labels for supporting their band and you'll find a nice quote from me and my website information.
Thank you to the management staff and the band members for supporting and teaming up with the Halshack.
Please see their other track for more band info.The Civics (Nashville, TN)....Remember Me

Excellent mainstream pop/rock sound from this up and coming vying act from Tennessee. Really good "radio ready" band that has shared the stage with several touring bands including American Idol winner Danny Gokey.
The guys have just released a new single for June 2017. See what you think of "The Civics"...thanks for rockin' the Halshack!

The band and the singer in this group are quite brilliant. The different levels in this song are very complex, it shows a fanatical skill for writing and song arrangement. The vocalist is British and it works very well in his favor. He has a fantastic range and with Civilized Tears, they have played numerous concerts an even opened for National acts. Radio play and distribution across major outlets.
There's not enough good comments I can make about this song, the group, and the man behind the band Timothy Bennet-Smith. Ive had the pleasure of promoting and getting to know this act over the last couple of years. Tim has been busy helping his wife Bambi ,who is also the band's bass player, raise their 3 children. We will hopefully see this band get back into the "groove" of things as their children grow and time will allow Civilized Tears to be reborn. Until then, help them keep the dream alive and we will be waiting for their clandestine return to the music-sphere.
I feel this song represents the very best of the bands playlist but also the rest of their songs are very good too. Will be featuring some more of this band in future episodes of my show.
Be sure to find everything halshack at these links. listen to an epidose, play some songs, hit the download buttons, get the app on Google and Itunes, give us likes and comments and plylist adds. All these things help keep us up in rank on the charts.
Currently #1 alt chart, going for #1 overall at podomatic. Please help us get there....

What an excellent rock band, primed and ready for the masses. This band has a solid footing in the bay area and continues to reach outward setting their horizons on national success.
They have a handful of radio ready well produced tunes for the commercial market and could do well on the rockwaves in any city USA.
Be on the lookout for more from this rising quartet out of Cali, as they are sure to impress many on their rise to possible fame.The Family (Greensboro, NC) ....Stray
June 10, 2017 01:11 PM PDT
Best known in the area for their rockabilly meets bluegrass head on into a culture shock of melding musical styles that is "The Family". Ive seen this band "live" with Narrow Plains on Memorial Day weekend 2015. It was an excellent stroll down a musical journey of pop dance bluegrass and Americana all melded into a tye-dyed frenzy of folklore and good times.
This track "Stray" strays away from the norm of their playlist but I feel it shows the pure raw vocal strengths and abilities of this group. It seems to outshine the rest of their songs but not to downplay the bands other releases. Just really dang good in my opinion.
See what you think of local homegrown favorites from Greensboro, NC "the Family". They have been in rotation on the show in past episodes 6 and 7. Go back and listen. Good shows indeed.
Thanks for rockin the Halshack!Flygone (You)...Coventry, UK

Pretty cool punk rock band out of the UK that Ive been watching grow for years since our time spent on Roadrunner Records website pushing bands. They have quite a meaty bass player that I find has an extraordinary skill on the 4-string. It shows through in alot of their tracks.
Do suggest you keep a watchful eye on this quartet from Coventry. They are sure to widen some ears and brighten some eyes as they build their name and following playing around England.Fresh Batch (Explode).....Greenville, NC

North Carolina's premiere reggae band hailing from the college town (East Carolina Univ) of Greenville. These guys have played numerous shows and have enjoyed opening for many well-known reggae touring bands. If you're ever spending some time in the eastern part of NC, I suggest catching them out live. Be a fun time.
Know what else is fun, spending some time at my website, listening to and voting for your favorite bands in my all new BATTLESHACK contest!!Hoonch (La, Cali)....1984

Born from the ashes in the breakup of Cali pop kings Walla. Vocalist Jonathan Kim and keyboard/backing vocals Gabriel Rodriguez, citing creative differences packed up their toys and headed for a new sandbox to play in.
The duo were quite the creative driving force behind Walla and they have really dug deep on this new album and found the "pop" spark that made Walla so famous. They drew from all 4 of their past ep's to bring us one awesome stellar 6 song ep "Audio Paradisio" that represents the very best of Walla and builds upon that sound to bring us an all new "pop masterpiece".
I swear if this cd were to fall in the hands of the right major label these guys would be multi platinum stars.
Well... another homerun from the Halshack!! Were batting a thousand...come root for us to #1 show on all of Podomatic.

Alt Vault x2 (new for ep.8)
(I live in NC and always on the hunt for great local talent from both N and S Carolina)
and my proud creation!!
Mystery Spotlight x2
My main focal countries are obviously the USA but I get cozy with our Canadian neighbors as well as our friends across the " pond" in jolly ole England. I have even found an amazing artist in Africa and a phenomenal alt rock band on the little tiny island in the middle of Mediterranean Sea called Malta. Shows you that nowhere is safe from the "clutches" of the Halshack...lol
Thank you to all my fans, bands, and supporters. My success is only because of you, this is a team effort and I am proud to have all of you batting for the Halshack!!
Halshack is an indie promo label with 35 bands and artists under his name and most of these groups and solo artists are in viable mainstream contention for potential success and possible stardom for these vying hopefuls. I pride myself on finding top quality rising acts that have made a name for themselves in their respective genres. What you will hear on my show rivals no other indie rock show on the planet. My groups are grade A top-notch artists and musicians that have attained massive followings and semi successful careers with opening for major acts and touring across the country and across the world.
I look for and aspire to finding only artists that mimic what you would hear on major broadcast radio stations mainly in rock, alt and top 40 but I also include a little reggae, ska, funk and americana as well. You will find a lot of diversity on my show and nothing but solid radio ready tunes one after the other. My musicians have mad skills and they are the drive behind my passion, motivation, and determination to see them succeed in this vast ever changing music landscape.
Halshack is also looking for a team of writers/bloggers to help review and write spotlight articles and pieces on bands and artists involved in the show. i have a couple of people to write but need more, lots more..lol
Well halshack is busting at the seems with talent and the potential to cause mass mayhem among the music industry..lol
"You can shine or get in line..lol... I, for one, plan to stand up, stand out, and be heard by revolutionizing the music industry one indie band at a time"------Halshack quote
