Bio: (Taken from Man On Earth's MySpace page)

MAN ON EARTH describes their sound as 'Eclectic, experimental rock based music with a commercial accessibility' All Music Guide takes it a bit further - "melodic, post-Britpop sensibility with sharper-edged American guitar muscle, then tops it off with thoughtful lyrics. Surprisingly mature and far-reaching, the band is really too eclectic to simplify with easy comparisons."

MAN ON EARTH was formed in New York City by lead singer Steven Nathan shortly after recording the bands debut album in his bedroom studio. The band is rounded out by Alex Polaris (Guitar, Keyboards) Dave (Drums) & Alex Goumas (Bass).

Three years after the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, MAN ON EARTH is back with 'The Time Spent Wondering', produced by Grammy winning producer & mixer, Ken Lewis (Lenny Kravitz, Beastie Boys, Fall Out Boy, Kanye West). The album contains guest appearances as diverse as the band's music. The legendary Dr. Fink, iconic keyboardist of Prince & The Revolution as well as Stephen Pearcy, the voice of the mega-platinum arena rock band RATT, have come on board to lend their talents and support to this ambitious project.

MAN ON EARTH's strong 'do-it yourself' ethic and non-stop hard work has garnered them a large amount of recognition and success over the past 3 years. Entirely on their own, the band has had their videos played on Much Music, been spun on over 300 radio stations, featured in film & TV, booked nationwide tours, and directed their own music videos. Shortly after the release of their first album MAN ON EARTH also won the ears of Grammy winning producer Ken Lewis who began working with the band on the songs that have become 'The Time Spent Wondering'.

'The Time Spent Wondering's first single 'all we want' has already gotten a head start this fall from Alternative rock station KACV in Amarillo TX. The song instantly generated phones and within a month it became the 1 most requested song on the station. FMQB declared 'All We Want' a Best Bet pick of the week and a growing number of prominent stations across the country have begun spinning the song as well. The video for 'All We Want' was directed by the band who encouraged fans from around the world to submit videos of themselves with signs explaining their dreams and goals. The outcome was truly inspiring and the video has had a huge response online. In addition pre sales for the album through an exclusive deal with saw the album debut 8 in their top 100! MAN ON EARTH was also recently named one of the top 20 most popular alternative bands in NYC by the Deli Magazine.

With roots in pop, rock, alternative, funk and hip hop music, Sleeping Lessons takes pride in their ability to fuse and create an enjoyable end product.

Beginning in the winter of 2009, the band began experimenting, trying to find new sounds, as well as stabilize a lineup. Going through numerous musical and roster changes, they believe they have found the perfect fit.Having played music together for years, members Brandon Clark(Lead Vocals, Piano), and Preston Briggs (Drums), concluded that finding a bassist and guitarist was crucial for a definitive sound. An essential way to break the mold was to add new influence and tone. Enter Andrew Seltzer (Bass) and Colin Filgate(Guitar),both mutual friends with a solid musical background in various styles of funk and hip hop, as well as an ear for production. Their addition has become ideal in accomplishing exactly what the band set out to do.

After intense practices, a few broken instruments, and a few lost voices, the band is thrilled about the new sound. "I really think we've finally found our element," states Brandon Clark, "We really just want to have as much fun as possible."

Recording a tentative EP with 6 new songs, the band is very optimistic for the future. Look out for their new music coming soon, and stay posted on shows near you!

Inner City Elegance - Connected

Inner City Elegance

Main Genre: Rock / Emo Rock

Snippet From Inner City Elegance's MySpace Page:

"Inner City Elegance isn’t far off either; this three piece is taking off in Calgary. With Internet radio play along with air play on Fuel 90.3 this band can get your attention. Lead singer and guitarist Bruno thrills the ladies with his accent and does not disappoint with his voice. Spencer sings back up and demolished the drums with an entertaining spectacle, and Justin rocks bass and backing vocals while driving the songs along. " -Aurgasimicalgary

"Imagine if Led Zeppelin played emo rock, the result could very well be Canadian rockers Inner City Elegance. This band truly sound fresh with entertaining songs that are almost artrock, they've got the same energy as The Who but with Talking Heads sense of humour. At the same time, they also bring thoughts to modern bands like Retrograde and Circa Survive. So you see, it's not easy to label their music. It's pretty exciting though to think how they came up with this odd sound, my guess is that one of the members loves 70's rock while one of the others loves alternative rock and the remaining member is a fan of progressive music. Anyway, I enjoyed listening to their debut EP."

"A band that really has their stuff together. After crawling around on the Internet for over 2 months now trying to find the hottest bands ready to jump into the big time, Inner City Elegance has made an impression on me. Not only with their music but with how they manage themselves. Being a former Band Manager I understand how difficult it is for a band just starting out and I know how hard it is even after that to continue to grow in the public' eyes. Someone once said to me 'Making The Music Is the Easy Part, the Hard Part is Getting People To Listen To It.' I believe Inner City Elegance has succeeded in doing just that." Dave L.

Creatures of a Beautiful City - Connected


Location: LA

Main Genre: Alternative/Pop Rock

This local LA-area-based band has been working and writing their current catalog of music since late in 2007. The band was originally born from singer Bluu Williams vision from a previous project. Only guitarist Runn remained from the aforementioned project; through like interests, a deep-seeded passion to play, write music and an identical work ethic to what they invision, these two decided to "BE" the "band" and to pair themselves with other musicians. These musicians had to be highly skilled, creative and willing to take a chance in the writing process. Bluu and Runn decided in order to acheive this unique sound they were looking for and to keep their audiences excited and anticipating what will come next, they would bring in different musicians with diverse backgrounds. Each musician joined the group in hopes to break out of their shells from previous projects. This was the start of Creatures of A Beautiful City! Aptly named for the city in which they inhabit.Every musician involving themselves with CBC, do so from a deep hunger to create an experience that will heighten the listeners senses as well as their own. The only intention within their sound is to create a unique but comfortable balance from all the influences that surround them. The easiest way to "classify" their sound is to say that they can bring you to a different place. With the ever-present melody from Bluu's stunningly captivating voice; there is no mistake for their sound. Pair this with grooving bass lines and rhythmically challenging drumming, it brings the melody of the guitars in with full force as they push and pull the tonal balance of the band. Between heavy groove and free-form progressive rock, the band is able to create a distinct style all their own. Creatures of a Beautiful City is attempting to become a striving force in not just the local L.A. music scene, but is ready to share their love of music and experiences with the world.

"CBC produces some of the coolest rock songs I've heard out of LA, let alone the US for an Indie band. Not many bands today just play that classic rock style of music we all know and love. CBC also specializes in Alternative and Pop Rock. While every other band out there makes up some fancy new genre no one has ever heard of before, or claims to play a new style of music every gig. Thankfully, CBC calls it like it is: They ARE rock. It is hard to sit still and listen to their music at the same time, simply because your foot is tapping the whole time. I can only imagine what it would be like to see them in concert. A lot more then your foot would be moving I'm sure of that." --Dave (Founder of RAI)

Charly H. Fox [a.k.a.

"Professional Remixes and Awesome Originals is the essence of Charly H Fox. He produces some really nice dance tracks and as a fellow DJ would definitly play in my next set. The part about creating his own radio station I find to be hillarious and completely inspiring at the same time. Who knew some local DJ with less then standard radio equiptment would make the most popular radio station in his area? That shows me the potential that Charly H Fox has to become one of the top DJ's in the world." -- Dave (Founder of RAI)

Contact Info:


"My first ever visit to Carter's website introduced me to one of the most professional looking blogspot sites on the net. Instantly that told me this guy has his stuff together. I was now excited to listen to what Wolfgang Carter had to present to the floor. It is an understatement when I say that his music is the pure essence of what rock IS: Flowing guitar melodies, great vocals, and a drummer with the capabilities to make it nearly impossible to keep your foot from tapping against the floor. I have never seen Wolfgang Carter preform in person but definitely plan to! But when I picture him preforming I picture him on stage at a popular local bar late at night, and then at the same time I picture the stage turning a full 180 to reveal a crowd of a couple thousand." --Dave L.

--"DJ Takkei contacted me one day without warning. Honestly though, this was a pleasant suprise. Between business and school it has proved very difficult to look for new artists to feature and help them out, let alone update the website. Listening to all of DJ Takkei tracks brought some new inspiration to my cause here at RAI. I started my DJ career at 16 and I am currently attending Rowan University for Audio Engineering and Radio/TV/Film. It sounds wierd to say I see myself in Dj Takkei. The main difference between us is the music we produce. When I listen to DJ Takkei's tracks in a row and feel like I am listening to a professionaly released trance album. When I listen to mine, I hear sparatic techno ideas and projects that spring randomly into my head. I feel as though DJ Takkei sees a larger image. I feel as though next time I walk into my favorite music store I'll find a DJ Takkei album right in front of the door." ~Dave L (Founder)

I do not know how but HydroPhon!c managed to perfectly combine the hard thumping kick drums of hardstyle at 144BPM's with the LPF'd BASS of dubstep at 70 BPM's.

"The first time I met Mike Menichini was at a rehersal for our high school's production of The Wizard of Oz.  It was our freshman year.  I heard him sing the tenor part in "The Wonderful Land of Oz" while I sung bass a few feet away.  He was one of the strongest tenors I could hear among the underclassmen and one of the most conifent.  I knew he was good then, and I knew I was a little bit jealous.  His confidence on stage can easily be seen in the above video.

The next preformance of Mike's that stands out in my mind is Senior year at Cherokee High School's "Cherokee Idol".  Mike did an amazing preformance of "Moondance" that turned the crowd into a crazed collection of wild fans cheering for Mike.  Naturally after working the crowd so well Mike went on to win Cherokee Idol that year.  It was then that I knew that a few years down the road I would be walking through Target's music section and come across a new CD:  Mike Menichini's Best Hits 2 Disk Collection.  Now that I run a music promotions company I am honored to help make his vision and dream a reality."
