GIVE ME A BREAK Radio Featuring Roy August, T Jae Christian , Lacy Jay Syler and yours truly Bobby Pizazz Also "Up to the Minute With Ed Beaver"

 

T Jae Christian Like so may artists, T. Jae started his music career at an early age, and by the time he moved to Nashville, he was a seasoned entertainer, and on his way to becoming an established song writer. He put his performing aside for awhile to pursue writing and record production. Before long his songs were being recorded by such artist as: Roy Orbison, Nat Stucky, Charlie Pride, Jeanne Pruitt, T. Graham Brown, (blue grass great) Jimmy Martin, and many independents. Due to his friendship, association and guidance of the legendary Producer, Owen Bradley , T. Jae has also become an outstanding producer. In the late 1980’s, as the music was going in a different direction,(no longer traditional country) he formed his own label (Universal Sound Records) to make an outlet for the many great older artist that were being cast aside for the new movement. After establishing himself as a viable artist and producer in the European market place, he released such fine Indie artist as: Mary Lee, Pat Roden, Rick Sharp, Harley Cummins, Paul Alan coons Ralph Parker, Mindy Miller, and as of late, the great T. Graham Brown, who he is currently touring with and producing on Universal Sound Records.  T. Jae has performed with many great artist: George Jones, Buck Owens, Ray Price, Conway Twitty, Roy Acuff, Ferlin Husky, Jimmy Martin, Johnny Paycheck, lefty Frizzell, to name a few. He has toured Europe playing to sold out venues every place he performed. The European market has been great to T. Jae with awards such as: Artist and producer of the year, many #1 releases and albums of the year. In 2009, he recorded his first country gospel album, spawning four #1 singles, and a video (This Is Where Jesus Would Go) which was nominated in the top four with Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, and Tracy Lawrence.T. Jae is quick to credit all his success To the great musicians, song writers, and fans around the world but most of all the DJ’S that really make the wheels turn, for it is they who get the music to the people! His new album, “I WISH I WAS HOME” has just been released in july 2012 which includes two Duets with T. Graham Brown. If you get a chance to come to any of his shows, he is most happy to meet and greet and spend time with his fans., so treat yourselves to a great show and fellowship.

Roy August For the first time in his life, hit songwriter, Roy August, has songs on the charts that he is singing himself. Indie Connect interviewed the ‘new star’ on his long career in the business. I loved the music of Roy Orbison, The Four Seasons, Bobby Vee and Hank Williams. And later, The Beatles, Beach Boys etc. I practiced my writing inspired by all of them.  Fancy Free was a miracle to me. It was at a time when I was struggling and almost ready to give up and leave town. I had a lyric for the song, which I took to the Oak Ridge Boys’ office. At the time, Jimbeau was the manager. The Oaks were totally into Gospel then. I gave my four verses and a chorus to Jimbeau that day so long ago, and he said he’d co write it with me. He offered an equal split on the writer’s shares and the Oaks would get the publishing. It was a done deal. We worked on it until it was two verses and a chorus. Then it sat in a file for 8 years before it got recorded! When it did, it helped both of us. It jump-started Jimbeau and his legendary career, and helped me raise my family. It also was the Oak Ridge Boys’ first #1 hit!!  Exerpts from Interview on  IndieConnect  By Justene Carter Visit Roy August   on   Universal Sound Records   FaceBook    ReverbNation   Damn Good Tunes   IndiConnect   LinkedIn    CDBaby

John Heinrich was born on October 26, 1951, in Poughkeepsie New York. He moved to Lexington Kentucky in 1957 with his Parents. In 1964, John got his first Guitar and soon after was playing in bands with friends around his neighborhood.

In 1970, John went to the University of Kentucky to major in stand-up Bass but soon realized that he was thinking in terms of Melody, "I knew that if I was going to work I needed to find a melody instrument." John Had already begun playing the Lap Steel in addition to bass guitar so the move to pedal steel seemed logical. John practiced day and night, brought his guitar home every night from a job, and listened to as much steel as possible. "

Some of his early influences were Don Helms, Buddy Charlton and of course the master at being commercial Mr. Pete Drake."

John played throughout the United States and Canada with many Groups including his own "Second Hand Rose," which played at the DJ Convention in 1974 at the "Peavey Room, King of the road hotel," and also the group had a spot on the "Grand Ole Opry 50th Anniversary" radio show.

Today, John is a studio musician in Nashville, his talents on the Steel Guitar, Saxophone, Dobro and Flute, have made him in demand. John is the staff Steel Guitarist for the renown "Gene Breeden Studios," on Music Row. John says "I have many friends around the world today thanks to the Steel Guitar and music," Heiko Aehle is a friend of John's that lives in Germany. John says, "I was trying to contact the North Tennessee Steel Guitar Assoc. on my computer and when I typed in the address and clicked on 'go,"

Heiko's Home page came up and after e-mailing with him, found out that he lives in the same area of Germany that my family the HEINRICH's came out of in the Eighteen Hundreds"! "Heiko and I probably would have known each other long ago or played in the same bands if my family had never immigrated."
