January’s Women Who Rock – Triple R Girl is Manda Mosher

MandaMosher2 webIntro and Interview by: Christi Broekemeier

It’s not often that an interviewer and interviewee become great friends; this is a transient industry after all, but in the case of Manda Mosher and I we hit it off from the first day we connected about 4 years ago and since we have seen one another morph and change both in our careers and personal lives. In fact I think that I can be one of her harshest critics rather than one that simply hands out the compliments left and right because I know what she is capable of doing. Also, while I tend to interview female musicians more than male (though both are great) artists Manda has been one of my favorite Indie artists male or female that I have ever come across. With an amazing voice, soul and songs that seem as if they are speaking to the listener and only the listener- I know why over the last year her career has been taking off-now allowing her to work with such famous people as Kevin Costner and his band. Signed to Red Parlor Records in the last year or so; she has been working extra hard to build the great fan base who tends to show up to her shows in spades.

Women Who Rock – The Triple R Girl for December is Samantha Gibb

samanthagibb coverHello cats and kittens!

Our last Triple R Girl of 2009 is the very multi-talented, very gravitational SAMANTHA GIBB. She formed her band, MEG, in Miami Beach, FL, in 2002. The band consists of her dearest friends from club days on South Beach. MEG is Samantha Gibb (lead vocals, piano/keys, and rhythm guitar), Lazaro Rodriguez (lead guitar, piano/keys, percussion, and back-up vocals), and Nick Sallons (bass, percussion, and back-up vocals). The MEG/Samantha sound is melodic rock/alternative with touches of electronica and some yummy bass. It’s romance, soul, hope, melancholy and beats, all rolled into one.

Rock and Roll Report Podcast #64 – The Best Thing to Stick In Your Ears!

mandy with ipodAfter an unavoidable delay The Rock and Roll Report Podcast is back and ready to rock your socks off! This week I once again went all over the rock and roll map with some 60’s inspired tunes, some heavy stuff, some punk and some sunny pop tunes. It’s what I like to refer to as a trip to the rock and roll buffet!

As usual you have a wide range of styles from a wider range of bands and artists who are either unsigned or are signed to independent record labels. If you like what you hear please consider supporting these bands in a tangible way by buying their music, going to their shows and buying their merch.

Kitana CoverIntroducing our Triple R Girl for November: Kitana Andrews, a.k.a. “Pink Chocolate,” is the ferocious and sexy front woman of Brooklyn Soul Punk band, Sister Anne!

What exactly is “Soul Punk” you ask? Kitana describes Sister Anne’s special sound as a potent mix of punk rock, a lil’ melodic metal, and rounded out with the soul that comes naturally when your singer grew up in the high-energy gospel church.

Women Who Rock! The Triple R Girl for June is Indie Rocker Lani Ford of Stark

lani-ford-with-roses-by-lucky-lawlerSTARK is a New York City rock trio with old school roots and original tunes! They play honest, raw, straight-up rock with poetic hillbilly angst. Brace yourself for the sophomore LP from STARK—Put It To Your Head. 10 tracks that are harder, more punked out and fun, but still feature Ford’s haunting vocals with bitingly funny lyrics that tug at your heart. It’s dark comedy and punked out country blues all rolled into one sexy package. With it’s new line-up, the band promises more great, hard rock and have already been writing for a new studio recording. Also, a new music video for “OH NO!” shot in Coney Island, NY has been released.

Women Who Rock! April’s Triple R Girl is the Amazing Christine Varian of Ardor

Emerging to stardom from a once working class lifestyle under the grey skies of Ohio, Christine Varian is a classic example of how hard work, dedication, musical talent, street smarts and a whole lot of sex appeal can quickly pull a person from the shadows into the spotlight.
