Georgina (a.k.a - George) Agombar and I first connected via Instagram - While I was impressed by her website and music, after chatting with her, I was very heartened to hear what George had to share. Listen in as we chat about how George has naturally discerned for herself at a young age what it takes to provide collaboration to support musical talent in helping them to personally identify what achieving success is in the new music industry. For me, George Agombar is a positive example of what is great about a new and up-and-coming group of young music entrepreneurs for 2021 and beyond.

Darrell_Craig_Harris_in_his_virtual_studiob11...

I had the pleasure of touring with Gary Puckett for a number of years and it was great to re-connect with him again - Just like old times. As you'll hear we covered a lot of ground in the hour that we spent chatting. I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I did in making it. Below is a summary of the fantastic achievements that Gary has attained thus far in his impressive musical career.

GARY PUCKETT and the UNION GAP was one of the most successful musical groups of the sixties.

Gary's unmistakable signature voice garnered six consecutive gold records and top ten Billboard hits with the following titles:

"YOUNG GIRL" • "WOMAN WOMAN" • "LADY WILLPOWER" • "OVER YOU" • "THIS GIRL IS A WOMAN NOW"
"KEEP THE CUSTOMER SATISFIED" • "DON'T GIVE IN TO HIM" • "HOME"

GARY PUCKETT has performed on more than thirty network television shows and prime time specials during his career, even adding a command performance for the President and Prince Charles at the White House. The Union Gap disbanded in the seventies. In 1974, "Young Girl" was reissued in England where it received a silver record award for attaining a top-five position on the pop charts, several years after its initial release.

Gary continues to tour nationally & internationally, has a new album out now, "GARY PUCKETT - LIVE"

Gary currently resides in Clearwater, FL with his wife and family.

Darrell_Craig_Harris_in_his_virtual_studiob11...

My chat with Waylon Revis, vocalist for 'A Killer Confession' and former 'Mushroomhead' vocalist was great fun while at the same time insightful. This is one happily married dude living in Florida. When listening to this chat I am sure like me you'll feel the clear sense that having faced personal adversity nothing now is gonna stop him from his razor-sharp focus to move forward in life. 

We cover lots of topics from his past, time with 'Mushroomhead'. How he has been dealing with life not touring due to CV19 and how he's preparing to go back out on tour and how he continues to develop his latest project 'A Killer Confession' and its music.  This was real quality time spent, and I hope we can do it again soon.

It's great to chat with Bucky Heard. He joined with  'The Righteous Brothers' in 2016 at the invitation of Bill Medley, who said he'd found not only an amazing voice, he also found the right chemistry pairing up with Bucky. Above and beyond singing with the Righteous Brothers, Bucky offers an online vocal singing coaching method he's developed called Vocal PREP Metrix. Working on a strong foundational balance between Pitch, Range, Endurance, and Power.

Bucky Heard is also an actor/director/producer.- Bucky has also teamed up with The Righteous Brother guitarist John Wedemeyer. and they're well-known on the local Las Vegas music scene. Bucky and I also cover a lot of ground in this podcast and Bucky offer's great insight on dealing with the current situation and tips for longevity in the music business.
