An Interview with Amber

Last week we left off with Amber talking about her happiness in regards to a recording project “I’d rather take a long time to make sure that I’m at least a little happy, than unhappy all over the place,” she replies. This week in the completion of her interview with Margaret Coble she discusses being on top of the charts and not being known to radio politics to being a woman in the music industry. AmberMC: When Gordan Lightfoot cover with Ultra Nate and Jocelyn Enriquez, from the disco movie 54 came out, it did very well. You’ve pretty much been consistently on the charts for the past few years. A: I have basically been on the charts with every song. It’s really weird to see when I go perform, because that’s where people [make] the connection with the face and the song. I started off with “This is Your Night,” and people are like, “Oh my God, this is her!” It’s still a big play song. Then I sing…

An Interview with Godsmack

Godsmack is a Boston based band put together by lead singer Sully Erna(former drummer of Strip Mind) around 1995. With friend and bass player Robbie Merrill, Erna hooked up with local guitarist Lee Richards and ex Lillian Axe drummer Tommy Stewart and formed the original line-up of Godsmack. After jamming on some new tunes both Richards and Stewart left the band. Current guitarist Tony Rombola took the helm on lead and Joe Darko filled the position on drums. The band in 1996, with a loan from a friend recorded their first recording All Wound Up. The recording drew a big following in the Boston/New England area.

Redesign Your Summer Wardrobe Online!

Each season comes with its own urge to change wardrobe dynamics. Each season is an opportunity to buy something new, try something new and to imply something new. Something to experiment with the colours, textures, patterns, or cuts. With summer just around the corner, it was time for me to reload my armoury with an indispensable dose of fashion. I always love the convenience of online shopping as a great tool to cope up with never-ending queues, busy schedules and limited time. I’m an addict when it comes to experimenting with my wardrobe scenes and I always used to visit many different online stores before making any deal. I had always longed for a designer store focused on contemporary women. Recently, while discussing my online shopping interests with my colleague, she suggested me to visit IFCHIC, betting that this will be my one stop destination for all online shopping henceforth. IFCHIC is an online boutique that carries a respectable amount of designer clothing, accessories, and shoes from premium brands.…

Erie, anxious, fifties style crooning, dramatized with classic Hollywood fear, the new Misfits Roadrunner release, Famous Monsters is the Boris Korloff of punk. Their signature grisly talent has been recently summoned by the silver horror screen great, West Craven. Jerry explained, “Scream” was written for West Craven, for Scream 2. Unfortunately, we didn’t get into the studio and put the song on tape before the movie came out. We submitted it to Wes for Scream 3, hopefully he’ll use it.” MisfitsGeorge Romeo directed the video for “Scream” which marks his plunge back into the zombie world after a 16 year withdrawal but 21 Century…
