MusicTelevision presents SIAM and her music videos to Loneliness, Same Thing and Paradise

SIAM is the alter ego of a recording artist from Ghent Belgium whose real name is Isolde Van Den Bulcke. Just below are three of her songs with music videos that are worthy of some love from music lovers everywhere. The first video, Loneliness, is her most recent followed by two of her works from the year prior. Very much looking forward to hearing more music with videos from this artist. Enjoy! GC

Wynonna & The Big Noise

Music Television presents Wynonna & The Big Noise

Curb Records recording artist Wynonna Judd is a historic country music figure whose latest record, based on the number of YouTube views, seems kind of under the radar for an artist of such legendary status. But it's certainly not for a lack of soulful country character.

This album is a very big deal for Wynonna and her husband, drummer, bandmate and the album's producer, Cactus Moser. Cactus spent a long time recovering from a motorcycle crash that occurred in 2012 shortly after they were married. The crash left him with an amputated lower leg and a shattered hand. He recovered, bucking doctor's predictions and is solidly back to playing, as well as producing. Wynonna and Cactus dated in the 1980s and they go back a long way, but the accident brought them together stronger in ways that only tough times can.

It has been 13 years since Wynonna recorded a record of non cover songs. She managed to avoid doing the new record to match the short term whims and supposed tastes of today's demographics, but instead wrote and sang songs that are honest reflections of her place in life with all of the ups and downs she has experienced.

The recordings, as well as the music videos, are wonderfully organic with old school written all over them. It was recorded live in her home/farm studio with all vintage gear using her regular band and a few special guests (not typical session musicians often play on recordings for big acts) and it's worthy of garnering lots of love from fans who manage to hear it. All of the players make it as tasty as tasty gets. Cactus makes it happen with his prosthetic leg and rehabilitated hand with the custom stick holder. The happiness and contentness of how they went about making the record shows in some of their expressions in the video, where they all seem to be in a great head space.

Fans will want to grab tickets to her domestic U.S. shows stretching from May through December 2016 by visiting her tour page. Enjoy! GC

SHEL - Rooftop

MusicTelevision.Com presents SHEL

Literally, one of the most dynamic, original and organic groups on the planet is this quartet of ladies known as SHEL.

Down below is their latest music video to their song titled Rooftop which is part of their upcoming 2016 album titled Just Crazy Enough.

Music Television presents SHEL - Just Crazy Enough

For those not yet familiar with SHEL, it's a group a four sisters (Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza) who long ago tapped into their individual musical genius and then onto their collective genius' as they began to create a great organic band with real instrumentation and sweet voices and brilliant harmonies (with no auto-tune and very little (if any) production necessary) backed by their impeccable musical poetry and arranging skills. Their studio recordings are in direct alignment as to how they sound when they perform live. And they nail their stuff live, as is evidenced in earlier live and studio recordings which you will find at the links at the bottom of this page. They are truly badass!

I first heard the group by way of Eva who had made a friend request on Ron Paul's official MySpace page during the 2007-2008 presidential election cycle. I personally ran the page on Congressman Paul's behalf and when I noticed Eva's friend request accompanied by a photo of her leaning on a musical instrument case in a Chaplinesque pose, there was something about her... that little thing that made me go "hmmmm?"

I browsed her page and quickly learned that she was a truly inspired artist with this amazing sense of light as if she were the world's greatest photographer with this grand sense of poetry, irony, tragedy mixed into all the mediums she works in.

After doing a little digging, I ended up on the telephone with Eva's mother from their farm in Colorado and before I knew it I was having a conversation with Eva and getting emails from her with mp3's of some amazing music that she personally wrote. Not long after that I learned that she was part of something bigger! And that was and still is SHEL.  At the time (2007-2008), I was the sole overseer of Eric Clapton's official MySpace page, and I had the priviledge of organizing Clapton's Top Friends List. Next to various legends, I would handpick and feature young lesser known acts of substance to try to give them a little exposure. I added SHEL to the list. Fans picked up on it and loved them to the max :)

It is now almost a decade later and the group is still constantly creating and traveling in non-stop work mode. They write, they record, they gig, they tour and they shoot and ultimately tell stories through their always evolving music video repertoire. In their own original way, they seem to be influenced by and often seem to be channeling energy from T.S. Elliot and greats like Charlie Chaplin and groups like Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin. Their videos which are more like little films put them into a category that transcends music and catapults them into being more like multi-media artists, actors and filmmakers. They are the real deal, the genuine article. Although they had an amazing sound and vision 8 years ago and I still love hearing and seeing their earliest work, where they are now did not happen overnight. These are four ladies who have really been paying their dues for a major portion of their lives and it shows in everything they do. Enjoy! GC
