So I put this out a couple months ago On Drooble as an exclusive. Its time to let this bad boy out the box!!
It's an out of the box rock band like none other (The UK's) from the heartland of the USA. Let me tell you something these guys have started "A Movement" for me in Kansas! Its my next best area to Greensboro and the UK!!
I get alot of plays, downloads, streams, and if I'm not mistaken I believe I'm being broadcasted somewhere in Kansas around Wichita. I get MUCH LOVE DAILY from Wichita, Kansas!
Thank you so much for all your support and continued love for the Halshack to all the good people of the Heartland of the USA!!
Here's your very own Kansas/Missouri based band special featuring 10 tracks of the best psychedelic rock these corn huskers could muster.
3 tracks from their first ep which is good but you gotta get PAST that into what makes this band so fantastic!!!!! Their almost full cd "Bad Seed" (i chose 7 tracks from it to showcase) ITs just superb!! Its a growth show!! You think im gonna give you the best up front. Forget that!!
Find the Shacklist at my website!!
Halshack keeps growing!! Look for us on most major music platforms. Heard, streamed, downloaded or broadcasted in 70 USA major metropolitan markets and 70 countries worldwide!!
Were thinking of having a festival for NC bands and spin up a bunch of party music from the Halshack "end of the summer bash" on Fri. Sept 27th (tentative) at AFTER HOURS in High Point, NC.
New (Ep 16)"Carolina Footstompin" and (16.5) coming out for the summer to support the festival and just because I also have been wanting to do a special on our home based artists here across both the Carolinas and our regional southern states. Will be adding Tenn and Georgia to the line up in the bonus (Southern Roots)
Heres a 2 minute sample commercial or you can find it on Podomatic or about any service (music for this show will be somewhat diff than whats on the commercial plus more acts in the podcast to feature, I just got new tunes from some of these acts...its gonna be a blast!!)Halshack (CAROLINA SHACKFEST) Commercial ad (sample music) for potential
June 29, 2019 12:46 PM PDT
THIS IS FAKE NEWS!!
DISCLAIMER.....This is a commercial ad sample of music from the bands that may be playing this event!!
Were thinking about putting on a big event in High Point. We need guarantees and promises to show so we can put on this event. If we can have a successful event this will kickstart more of these in the future and maybe grow to other cities and states!!
PLEASE find me on Facebook or Twitter or Podomatic or email through my contact page at the website (Halshack.com) or Instagram or wherever. Facebook messenger me.
Please let me know in some way you are coming. The club wants this event and the bands want to do it but not without some kind of guarantee they will be paid for the efforts. I cant pay them but the door ticket sales can so you gotta come folks and support.
Be games, prizes, cool Halshack music and dancin' all night!!
Also (Ep 16) and (EP 16.5) are coming to support this show (CAROLINA SHACKCAST) and (CAROLINA FOOTSTOMPIN')
SURPRISE!! Me on the mic doin' the Carolina thing baby!!
Thanks a heap everyone!!Halshack ep 15.5 (ROCK AGES) June 2019 --Bonus music only
June 22, 2019 08:21 AM PDT
A year ago today I began work on the clandestine Ep 12 (Stevie Nicks special), it was also my older brothers birthday as today is as well. Heath Jester, I love you so much brother. Happy birthday man!!
Well so much has changed and transpired in the last year. Its been quite amazing to see all the growth that the show has made. Over 30k subscribers added, multiple music platforms to be heard on (over 20 and growing). Over 70 major USA cities and 70 countries from around the world are all figuring out that the Halshack is where its at and my quality of bands is above all others.
I bring my own acts to seize the day and show people real bands still exist today. Its taken me 5 years to put together this list of fine rock bands from all corners of the globe. I have more, I cant possibly cover all the songs and bands in one hour so there will be more Rock Ages following down the road but for now enjoy my playlist of the BEST rock songs and rock bands playing today.
They say rock is dying and that is correct. In the big market all were left with is old has-beens and limited selection of styles of rock. Im here to show rock music fans that its not dead its alive and well and ready to rock the ages!!
Lets do this. Have fun. You know I had to upstart and upstage any playlister on the planet. You will NOT outfox, out create, or surpass my musical talents and abilities of my golden ear. If its better, I havn't heard it yet!! Thats my reputation and I'm stickin' to it.
HALSHACK RECORDS will become a reality with the help of all my listeners and supporters to keep spreading the news and we will land a BIG FISH to invest or partner up. Its only a matter of time. So in the meanwhile have some "ROCK for your AGES"

Halshack Ep 15.5 (Lost -N- Space) 6-15-19 (Bonus show Music Only)
June 12, 2019 02:03 AM PDT
Its June, Summer is upon us and starry skies are abundant in the sultry nighttime sky here in the Carolinas. Its a beautiful sight to see as I set my starry eyed gaze on conquering the music universe.
This show is one of those more artsy musically skilled type shows full of eclectic bands sure to please your whimsical palette. Americana/folk, some alternative to start, lots of great "pop" hits as well and plenty of cool rock songs to send your mind wandering off into the stratosphere!
3 Excellent Canadian bands taking flight as well as our favorite Italian band on the planet from Malta will be joining this expedition to the stars. New producer JAEM is shooting his lucky stars and there's even a Pink Floyd esque band in the mix as well.
Just the perfect show for taking a trip through space and learning all about how your life can change in a blink of an eye when that rare comet comes around and streaks a blaze of light into your life! I think I may have seen that "Good Comet" in my life recently! I hope she comes back around!! Thanks Tyler Stenson for the great song! Well played and just what a nice touch with those superior golden pipes!
Show keeps growing and gaining serious popularity. Keep sharing and telling people about the Halshack. As the late Casey Kasem would say "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars" I have remembered that and lived that my whole life. Well its time for space folks. Lets fly there together!!

Thanks for listening and enjoying and being a part of the Halshack.Halshack Ep 14.5 (Happy Mothershack Day) 5-12-19..Bonus show (music only)
May 12, 2019 01:35 AM PDT
Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there. We're celebrating women around the Halshack. There seems to be a stigma and true statistics that back up the claim that there are far fewer women at the forefront of the music industry. You find alot more men and male bands with that the extra talent needed to push forward. Well you girls and ladies and Moms are just as awesome and you seem to always have to work harder to gain the attention of your peers and THAT'S UNFAIR!!
Women are just as fantastic and can be super talented just as much as the guys!! (if not better) There's just far fewer to choose from with ace level talent, songwriting skills, captivation ability, "x" factor appeal. Even diggin' in the trenches of the internet audio sphere, I have not come across many that, are not signed or famous already, who have the whole enchilada..lol
Welcome to the future of the music industry folks. I'm sure there are ALOT (probably hundreds or thousands at least or more from all over the world) more than these 8. But that's what I've "discovered" so far. I don't know they are out there until I find them and that's a daunting task. I do have a few more ladies waiting in the wings. You super talented gals are a rare breed indeed. I have 77 acts now with only these 8 having prominent female leads so HATS OFF to you ladies gettin' in here and stickin' it to the MAN...lol
So MOM's everywhere, rejoice that you are amazing at anything you do and don't ever let a man belittle you or treat you badly. Please "don't love a Monster like Lauren Dair". Cant help who you love but you can get help out of that relationship. Any man who treats a woman this way has no concept of love or the value of life and can never make you happy! Please, tell a family member, the police, a friend. Call the battered woman's abuse centers, they will get you help before its too late and you cant call anyone!
We love our MOMs and all the women everywhere. Please respect them and they will respect you back. After all it takes 2 to love and make a happy life and love for Mom and the children (whether kids or adults).
Allright, Moms of these artists, I hope i made you proud this mothers day and I hope all women enjoyed this "very special" edition of the Halshack!
Been on this great music site recently called DROOBLE. Great community for amateur and professional musicians. Lots of good people, listen to music, leave reviews, and engage in a thoughtful and rewarding music community. So i found 2 artists on Drooble that made the grade. Both females too, I was so pleased to find them and I had this idea swirlin around in my head for a girlshack so it was perfect timing to put this out and add brand new artists from DROOBLE. (Maisie Mae Wardley) and (Lucia Banfield). Well done young ladies for grabbing my attention.
We did a review for Maisie Mae already and posted at my website, written by music blogger/band pr manager/and writer of books and poetry Andrea Baskin. Thanks Andrea for the nifty little piece on Maisie. She sure is talented and so are all these brilliant performers.
Ep 15 (new talk and music show with a theme loosely based around time (SPRINGTIME SUBLIME) and to support the show, companion bonus show (TIMESTICHERS) be out soon. Im hoping around the end of the month.
Find us on Itunes, podomatic, PLAYERFM, Castbox, and my website. You can stream the show or download and take it with you..ENJOY!!
Spotify (new episodes land on the 15th of every month if I have one)
Thanks for rockin' and sharin' the Halshack!!

SURPRISE!! It's Funkin' 420 folks! Sure you didnt expect another show already. Why the hell not? Most everyone's partying today and enjoying some good ole' reggae and ska. Why not we join in on the fun too?
You know if Halshack is gonna serve you up some tunes on 420, it's gonna be the best of these high times...lol
So enjoy my spur of the moment show, I had no idea I was going to do this. It wasn't planned or very thought out. About 3 this morning, I looked at the date, started laughing and thought to myself "I got this"!!
Well have a fun party on the house from yours truly. As its time I set my sights on Ep 15 (new artists and me on the mic) with all these good times were celebrating, its time to grow my label and shoot for the stars with the new time-spaced based episodes for May/June.
Hope everyone has a happy safe "holiday", be sure to burn as much time wasting away your 420 listening to good music and bands from the Halshack. There's plenty to NOT do on a day like today....lol..so HAVE FUN doing nothing but as always be responsible.
Find more great HALSHACK shows and episodes on Spotify, Podomatic, Itunes, Castbox, and PlayerFM! and of course at the home website!
Just enjoy it folks! 3 songs in and your hooked for life. Any episode from 11 forward. Just hit the play button!! And as always have fun!Halshack (Spotify excl Dec 2018) rel on Pod (Apr 2019)
April 13, 2019 01:43 AM PDT
This was an exclusive teaser I ran on Spotify back in Dec 2018 featuring 5 really cool pop infused styled songs from different genres. Its not up on Spotify for now so I thought I send it over here to Podomatic and Itunes for a bit.
Have fun getting a trial run of the Halshack if you've never listened before or if you've never heard these songs or if its just been so long you forgot!!

Halshack- NO DIRECTION- Ep 14.5 (Apr 2019-bonus)
April 11, 2019 11:44 PM PDT
Well everybody..Nashville was an eye opening and jaw dropping experience. Made some great connects and had some mishaps along the way that have sent my future plans into unknown territory. I've started a movement and made some real headway on the formation of Halshack Records.
Only problem is I have no clear concise picture as to where to go next. As my life and label have no real direction right now...lol
I'm kind of now in "no man's land" in between the nexus of something good and something stellar or legendary even. The sheer potential of TOP 10 hit bands and artists under my wing is enough to give anyone a swift kick in the head that what I'm about to undertake is monumental and overwhelming at the same time. Looking for investors and partners to make Halshack Records a reality for so many struggling and starving fantastic worthy of stardom indie artists.
So have fun as I take you on my journey to "Nowhereville" along the way you will find us feeling up for the cause of it then already gone and moving forward with our plans to conquer the music world! From being on the up to going for high places and screaming out echoes about all our bands. It came down to this current state folks as Ive had a breakdown in Nashville of friendships but I will never give up on my artists or you the fan and find the easy way out. The music fills my spirit up and every face that I meet that doesn't feel the love for good indie music is a faraway place from you the listener. We're on an elevator moving up with the movement that began with one to aspire to new heights, so finally the world would be in our reach where other podcasts are just not there with us on that level.
Nashville tried my patience and tried to curb my enthusiasm as well but it only made me grow in lots of ways, made new contacts, gained a new audience and opened my show up to regional support from the entire southeast.
In the words of Dangermaker at the end of the show... "....everyday every night, I know what I want, its black and white, I'm still here!!!"

Im new to Podomatic so its time to ROCK!!
BIG THANK YOU to all my fans, bands, and supporters. All these cool accolades would not be possible without YOU!!
Halshack is a radio show, public relations manager, indie A&R rep, talent scout and band promo label....oh and almost forgot we write articles and reviews too (whew!!...im busy when you write it all down..lol)
Reason this show is so cool!!! Im about to tell you. I have many segments that drive the listening experience!
x2 means there are 2 segments
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
