I work with indie bands who have earned top star music collab projects with (Stevie Nicks, Frankie Muniz, Lil Zane, Belinda Carlisle, Eminem, including many more credits) We also help represent #1 Billboard rock band CAVO!!I am honored to have been bestowed with such gifted musicians and music and to be revered with such respect among my peers. Thanks so much for your love and support as we continue to rise to the top of the music industry. I am currently fielding investors and/or partners to make HALSHACK RECORDS a reality. I have partners who are former major label reps as we all come from a major label background in some capacity. I earned a partnership with REVERBNATION about 3 years ago through the former owner of the company Lou Plaia. He and his partners after 15 years of investment into the indie music community sold the company to Bandlab! A Singaporean company. I have continued that relationship as most reps still work for the company. They have fed me hundreds of new bands through their "Opportunities network" as well as my contacts with Belinda Carlisle and Eminem and Lil Zane and Nic Collins (son of Phil Collins) in his own band as a drummer as he is also the current touring drummer for Genesis! Im very very honored to have these credits!We recently put heavy focus on the radio station for ZENO FM! So far it has received massively strong positive reviews and people have logged thousands of hours of listening for the station in a short time! AWESOME!! Find the show on every major music platform in the world and on ZENO FM (exclusive content) and on HALSHACK.com

Episode 126: Halshack Ep 27.5 (80s were Dazy 2) July 2023 (bonus show w- Belinda Carlisle)
Lets get back to basics folks!! The 80s/90s were the king of the road for music! Diversity in music is what makes the culture of the world spin out on the airwaves. Back in the day we opened our ears and eyes and our borders to music from all over the world from the British Invasion to South African vibes to Gregorian chants even...lol Its a crime that music has flown in the direction it has. Newcomers (DARKBIRD) from Austin, TX are certainly not guilty of any musical "Crimes" as their new hit has soared in for a landing on the Halshack! I'm glad they decided to pick my landing zone and launching pad for their band. We will do what we can to help Darkbird build a nest here at my show!We even got super lucky to land Belinda Carlisle and Gabe Lopez in a new duet "California Blues". We are absolutely not feeling the blues around the Shack these days! I'm honored to have their support!  Over the years the labels seemed to have forgot where quality meets innovation and "catchy" writing skills as well as pro experience to produce a top hit. The hits of today fail in comparison on many fronts from the forefathers and mothers of popular music of the past. Its not about "Get off my lawn"!! or "Kids today and their music"...lol It's about the very quality of whats being produced from an objective professional perspective. That all stopped about 10 to 15 years ago. That's when the decline of diversity set in and we only have what we have today at the top. We cant forget what "powerhouse hits" came well before the industry decided to stop looking for real singer songwriters and closing our musical borders to the knowledge of the world radio sphere. Its a "crime" that no one knows these bands exist and could compete with the greats of the past! Its a "crime" that there's no central place for music where we can share in that collective experience that made our world so connected without the internet or our phones. These new technologies have made us less connected than ever before!Lets rock 80s/90s!! Pop wave, Brit wave, Americana/rock in this show!! Have fun!!Up next maybe Ep 28 Shacknation 13 (full talk and music) or another theme show, not sure yet! Whatever it is, it will be great as always from your trusted guru of the radio dial!We got some BIG announcements coming soon about the High Rock Music Festival and the Shackhole down at the Axehole in Lexington NC!Find my show everywhere on Itunes, Iheart Radio, Podomatic, Deezer, Amazon Music and many more!Halshack.com you can find everything here including the tracklist at the SHACKLISTS page!Halshack.com/shacklistsThanks so much for becoming a fan! Help spread the word! This has been a 10 year passion project with no money made! Time to turn Halshack into an LLC and start the income stream for the bands with festivals and much more!

Episode 125: Halshack ep 27.5 (Rap Shack 13) July 2023-- WARNING!! 18++ Explicit Content!!
Brand new Reverbnation Campaign #7 (Rap Shack 13) almost 1000 submissions so far and these roughly 20 new artists were chosen to be a part of my special rap/hip-hop series that's been earning many accolades throughout the industry. The nature of music is a funny thing. True it's ever changing but good quality acts don't usually go against the grain. Nature gave humans the ability to vibrate with the world in musical bliss across multiple genres and styles from new to classic and from young to old. Rap/hip-hop/R&B is deeply rooted in blues/jazz/gospel buried in the rich history of the backwoods also city pubs and clubs of the south.Rapshack thirteen is lean, mean, and green with the rising talent that can only be found out there in the indie wilderness of hip hop land. Take a musical hunting trip through the vast prairie of rap/hip-hop sounds that are a rare find from the usual habitat of the top music market. Rest assured you can always escape the insanity of the world as you spend some quality time outside the "concrete corporate" musicsphere with the Halshack! Lets all get back to the basics of what the last 30 years of hip-hop has taught us about writing a good catchy tune and that would be................It's all in the melody! Melody is the key to unlocking the sweet spot of rap infusion. There was once a day when rap was one dimensional and kept in a box. That box has exploded to an artistic robust world of music that only nature herself could have created. Catch my boy "IamTonyDomingo" with his debut track "You're Missed"  (featuring the cool beats of UK producer 2Deep with sweet soft vocals by Marian) on the worldwide Halshack airwaves hailing the mountains of Tennessee. Try not to let the insanity of the world get you down like Leroy Booker with his new track debut "I'm Insane". Hope you have a good journey through the backwoods and down the backroads to visit my RAPSHACK. This is an exclusive trip you can only take here at the Halshack! Find the show everywhere on the web at Amazon Music, Iheart Radio, Itunes, Podomatic, and many more! Visit the show website to find 15 pages of content built over the last 10 years just for you the listener! Halshack.comMore to come with news of the Shackhole challenge game night this summer!

Episode 120: Halshack Ep 27.5 Happy Mothershack Day 2- May 2023- Holiday Special bonus show
Happy Mothers day to all our loving Moms! Its been 4 years since the last Mother's Day show.  That one dealt with all my female artists at the time to celebrate women and their achievements. This time around I'm building on the idea of family, moms, dads, kids, babies and more titles dealing with the subject of moms lives even if you are NOT a MOM yourself you will still enjoy this show. Thanks to all our Moms for the daily sacrifices they make for the love of their families. Sometimes life is great and works out how you want sometimes it isnt and these are life lessons that we all need to learn at any age. There are stories here of youth  and never being to young for love or having fun in the night to growing older and desiring a more simple quieter life. Don't worry about the kids, they will be alright! You just focus on you this Mothers Day and have some "Whiskey Baby" on us!Thank you to our loving mothers for all they do!HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all!! Have a great weekend!Find the show all over the web from Itunes to Iheart, to Amazon Music to many more including my website Halshack.com Find the tracklist at Shacklists pageHalshack.com/shacklists

Episode 119: Halshack- Ep 27.5 (LOST WAYS) May 2023- bonus show w-CAVO- official cut
"Themes are us" here at the Halshack! ..lol with special guest (CAVO) This show came about because of a submission from Alternative Twist Radio! They submitted to me a new competent talented artist by the name of Will Buck! I searched through his library and found this "little diddy" that almost "slipped my grasp"..lol with his song "Sleight of Hand"  Will bucked this idea into my head to do a theme show based solely around this song. I had to find a way to use it so I dug deep through 10 years worth of my catalogue new and old to pull out one of the best episodes in the theme series to date! The best shows come along unplanned!This episode is all about what one faces from the negative side of life. Its a very serious tone. Some of the songs are upbeat but the show as a whole will tax your inner self and test your strength plus your mental fortitude. You can and will survive. Learn how to cope and find the inner strength needed to push forward. A good support system in your life is a must.  Everyone experiences loss in many ways from the loss of a loved one to the loss of their family unit to losing ones keys or even losing yourself to the madness we call life. We all desperately want change but some lack the will or the fortitude to see it through. I have been in a very dark place the last several years of my life at different moments after the loss of my family unit plus the loss of my pets dying to losing my great house at the lake after 7 years then my car died. (lost house due to owners selling, I was a renter). Life has been somewhat strange and an adventure ever since...lol Its allowed me much introspective and retrospective on how to cope with life's curve balls. Through it all the music and my new phase of life have kept me positive and happy, for the most part, despite all the misery!New adventures are on the horizon as we plan forward for a SHACK HOLE at the Axe Hole/Friction Skating in Lexington NC! Next year coming August 2024 is the High Rock Music Fest with Halshack at CARAWAY SPEEDWAY! (hopefully, we are waiting on county approval for a permit for the festival at this time)Spotify playlist for some of the potential acts at the fest. we could see 40 to 50. Heres at least 15 to get you started!https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7acb5ugqLCvykCiztlz027?si=8ba26a7ba0e24883We will keep you posted!Find the show everywhere you find great podcasts like ITUNES, IHEART RADIO, AMAZON MUSIC, PODOMATIC plus many more!Find 15 pages of content including video shows like MTV, contests, and music blogs plus more! Halshack.comFind the playlist at Shacklists page at my websiteHalshack.com/shacklists Find BRAND NEW playlist series built on SPOTIFY of our quality artists! Just search Halshack Rockcasts under playlists.

Episode 118: Halshack Ep 27.5 Rap Shack 12 (Apr 2023)- Bonus show (Warning 18+ Explicit music)
Rap Shack 12 is sure to delve into some great jams to make you go "........DAMN!"..lol We're back again with another edition of my stellar rap and hip hop series I'm becoming renown for around the globe per our official radio submission campaigns with Reverbnation! This rounds out official campaign number #6 with the company. Moving on to 7 this summer!! We had 1500 submissions and chose about 50 to fill a few shows! Be sure to get your submissions in for the next campaign starting May 15th and ending July 31st! "She wanna do it for the Gram!" says Black Shawd and indeed we do want to get our message out to the Gram and Tik Tok and anywhere else who wants some dope tunes for your ride or to flash your hide...lol I managed to put together a cool special featuring some new rap infused R&B with a little soul pop in between then we go cruising into the islands for a little flavor of Jamaica. Skylar Lutes and Drifting Roots were having fun in the sun till the boys in blue thought they we're a "suspect" for bringing too much good music to your ears! Meanwhile MIGS718 is getting "Wasted" off good vibes after his BRAND NEW track just released!! Then we're going to take a slight stroll down memory lane to the harder edge of rap with some various new and old style hip hop mixes! Thanks for enjoying this journey with me. Its hard to put these shows together and manage to find all the right material to form a proper flow in order to arrange these various styles in a one hour setting. I manage to get lucky and do it everytime which is quite intriguing that I can do this without flaw. It does take alot of work. I have to dive through every single library of every potential artist for the episode and find the song that works and is presentable and professional enough for radio play. If its not there it doesnt make my show. Thats the quality Ive become known for. I appreciate everyone so much for becoming a fan and recognizing what we do here at the Halshack! It means the world to me and the most to these artists who have no voice to help them stand out! Find our shows across multiple platforms like itunes, Iheart, Amazon Music,. Podomatic, and many more plus my website at Halshack.comSee you soon! Time to start up some theme shows again and have a  Shack Hole "live" event coming soon to the Axehole and Friction Skating this summer in Lexington NC. where we hope to announce our official plans for the High Rock Music Fest Summer 2024 once we get the approvals and location solved.  See ya later alligators!! ...lol ....... Peace out my friends!!

Episode 117: Halshack ep 27.5 (Shacknation 12)- Apr 2023-- (Belinda Carlisle--Gabe Lopez)- bonus show.
Please welcome Belinda Carlisle to the Halshack!!  Well last year we didn't get to put much focus on this special event! Due to the Wampus Cat Music Festival with Lit, Everclear and Sister Hazel this song was completely over shadowed! I talked about the song and played it in the Wampus Cat Special but it was a wash for their representation! Well I'd like to give this song justice and put the proper focus on the stellar career of Miss Belinda Carlisle of the Go Go's fame! I'm honored to have her on the show! She released a book recently about her troubled life behind the scenes which I believe many of us did not know about! I'm thankful she found a clean road to sobriety and she's with us today to share her stories of trials and tribulations. I'm glad she's overcome her problems and back on the road touring and cutting new music like this song with Gabe Lopez! Gabe submitted to me again for the show which we've already heard Gabe 3 times now on 3 diff tunes so thought we should swing back around to this little "diddy" about feeling the blues for home in CALIFORNIA BLUES! Honored to have this duet! This is all part of Reverbnation Campaign #6! We had 1500 submissions and all total almost 50 were chosen. There was 2 Shacknation shows and one rap show still to be released Rap Shack 12 will be out soon! Announcements will be coming shortly in emails to the lucky winners to get on my show! This is a great show. 10 minutes longer than normal. Lots of varied popular styles blended together. First you have some pop then a little EDM to swing your hips too then we work into some modern contemporary and off with a Brit wave to end the  block. Third we will rock you out with various styles of new rock from light to heavy in your face tracks with Once Around at the end! Its a blast! Share to your friends and associates! You find the show all over the web! Itunes Iheart Amazon Music Podomatic and many more!!Halshack.com See you again soon for Rap Shack 12!High Rock Music Festival plans are in full swing for Summer 2024! More on that later!
