HALSHACK Ep. 9 (4-25-17) ALT, ROCK, POP (Brand new Music!!)
April 25, 2017 12:30 AM PDT
Ep. 9 (4-25-17) new format!! Still the same great show!!
Brand new streamlined edition of the Halshack Rockcast!! Shows gotten too long so were trimming it down to get you "in and out" in just about an hour. Come on folks you've got an hour to spare right while your cleaning house, driving the car, working at your computer or working out at the gym.
Give us a download and you will discover that the Halshack is not playing around when he says "only the best indie rock, pop, and alt"
Halshack's bands and artists come with a long list of accomplishments from opening for National acts on worldwide tours, radio play on FM stations in various cities, TV interviews and numerous radio gigs. Fans ranging from 5,000 to 300,000 so these are no small potatoes bands and artists. They have proven track records to succeed in the ever growing music factory and some have potential to break out as world wide stars. Thats correct folks everyone of these fabulous artists are unsigned with no major label backing. (not that they are not worthy) We just havn't found the right deal yet or made the right contact or they simply want no label involvement and want to pursue their own path.
So we're doing it on our own Indie style!! Maybe one day with the right backing we can form our own major indie label without all the red tape and blurred lines. Until then we're plugging good music and Grade A talent till the cows come home and the pigs fly!! Wahooo!!!
So how about giving us a listen or download, you may even discover your new favorite band and want to help support their efforts.
Thanks for rockin the Halshack and getting us to over 100,000 total plays across all channels.
Lets keep it up Shackheads..lol
Thank you to all my bands, fans and followers!!

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!
numberonemusic.com/halshackindierockcastCivilized Tears (Nashville, TN)...Blue Sunrise
June 13, 2017 10:24 AM PDT
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....
Thank you for rockin' the Halshack!!Dangermaker (Desdemona)...San Francisco, CA

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
