Jazz/World recording artist Kenny Love has worn many hats in the musical arena — international radio/video promoter, media publicist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist. His foray into the world of music began at the tender age of four when, as he recalls, “A miniature trumpet was casually removed from my grasp (and lips) during preparation for a March of Dimes parade as a result of my having failed to cause it to transmit sound, although I was huffing and puffing quite professionally.” This would later become the first instrument for which he received formal training and ultimately mastered.
Sometimes we survive through our art, and sometimes we save others. Jennifer Richman has done both.

The members of Stanford, California-based Literary-Rock band Glass Wave understand this better than most. Comprised of three professors, a Ph.D. candidate and an upstart jazz drummer, Glass Wave seeks to bring the exuberance of rock n roll to bear on the world of literature. Taking on the works of Edgar Allan Poe, Ovid, Sigmund Freud, Jane Austen and others, Glass Wave recast classic tales from new and surprising perspectives against musical arrangements that incur thoughts of groups such as Pink Floyd, Jefferson Airplane, Jerry Garcia and even The Decemberists.
For Greg Susoreny, it’s been a long time coming. His debut as a songwriter and recording artist is the fulfillment of a genuine passion carried in his heart over several years. While his arrival in music comes after starting several businesses in other industries, he is not ending something; he’s just getting started. With the sharp contemplation and adult contemporary/country sound that defines his music, time spent listening to Greg feels like talking over beers with Kenny Cheseny and Don Henley. All insight, and no hangover.

In a world fraught with cynicism and decay, Danni Rosner shines like the sun. The loquacious twenty-six year old chanteuse is one of a new breed of pop singer/songwriters responding to an uncertain world by looking inward. A perfectionist, Rosner exacts every ounce of truth and emotion from her life; mining the soil of her heart for anything of value and illuminating those gems into song.
Richard Kincaid’s plaintive voice unleashed like an arrow from its bow, soars as it gathers momentum with yearning and unabashedly hits home in the heart. Longtime businessman and CEO of the largest publicly traded office real estate company in the United States, when his company sold in February 2007, Richard experienced a moment of reckoning. He faced a choice: he could step back onto the corporate treadmill or pursue projects that really mattered to him. “I didn’t want to continue on autopilot,” he says, “I wanted to make conscious decisions about my life and I needed outlets for my passion that corporate life never provided me.” Thus, Richard turned the page and began a new chapter in which he returned to his first love: music and simultaneously blazed a trail through new territory: philanthropy.

She May Be Someone You Don’t Know You Want, Until You Get Her
Elizabeth Tryon has just released the album, From Elizabeth, and this stunning new work could come from no one other than Elizabeth Tryon. This is because it is unique – just like Tryon is. While Tryon’s music holds immediate appeal to fans of Josh Groban and Sarah Brightman, and their respective mixtures of pop and classical musical elements, Tryon – the artist – simply transcends any such easy categorization. After all, this is a woman that writes screenplays, has perfected multiple British accents — which are in high demand for commercial voiceover work — and is an actress in the highly competitive New York City theater scene.
Melina Gerges is thriving in today’s topsy-turvy music business because she is a renaissance woman with more skills than one can count. To begin with, this classically trained opera singer recently applied her studied vocal craft in the highly demanding Italian opera scene. At the same time, however, she is also Melina Gerges, the sophisticated American pop singer with a distinctly sassy, European vibe. This compelling combination of classical music training, along with American pop, European dance, and exotic Middle Eastern roots, leaves no question about her utter uniqueness. Without question, Gerges has no trouble standing out above the rest of the pop music crowd — especially in a music scene that oftentimes appears like vocalist cloning gone awry.
