Yung Caly (FB/flyy1) & The Real Stevie Bee (FB/TheRealStevieBee)           

 "Hip-Hop/Conscious Rap/Good Music"/Radio Edits (Click Archives below :)  

Thanks to P-Squad Entertainment for the photos, media & artist interviews.

As a radio-host this is my Hip-Hop premier :) featuring artists The Real Stevie Bee and Yung Caly who label their music "Hip-Hop/Conscious Rap/Good Music" :) The "Good Music" statement got my attention :) I'd never seen artists describe themselves like that before :) I liked it... sounds confident :)

These articulate young artists rap their thoughts to track.  And I have to tell you, some of these words run deep.... I don't know how many times I listened to Yung Caly's radio edit of 'Black King' but it was so transcendental that I started to write out the lyrics for myself, just so I could be inspired at a glance.

On the new music scene (post 6 major labels now down to 3) we as musicians are all re-defining the music business paradigm.  The Real Stevie Bee had the sense to create a collective of sorts in founding P-Squad Entertainment out of Florida by bringing together the most talented folks around to rap their messages in some inspirational tracks/radio-edits with "... messages of hope, love and prosperity... bold messages used to change the music industry and the world we live in..."...(Click Blog Title to See More)...

After graduating from Drury University in Springfield, Missouri with degrees in Philosophy and Theatre, John Dillon co-founded the band The Ozark Mountain Daredevils. The band signed a recording contract with  A & M Records in 1973 that resulted in eight albums that sold millions, and earned them four gold records in the US and Canada.

The Daredevils' first radio hit was "If You Want To Get To Heaven" a song John co-wrote. Their second album "It'll Shine When It Shines" included the song "Jackie Blue" which became a #1 hit worldwide.

John's insider knowledge of the music industry, his talent as a composer and lyricist, and his years of experience on the road were the motivating factors behind the creation of a new, more inclusive paradigm for the discovery of new artists and their music. A creative partnership was formed with three other innovative people who shared that same vision. ArtistSignal is the result.

John and The Ozark Mountain Daredevils continue to tour, write and record. John's additional industry talents contribute to the Meridian Creative Alliance including original licensing placements.

It's been a long wonderful road for The Ozark Mountain Daredevils.  Open the November issue of Rolling Stone and John Dillon's picture will remind you of how wonderful it's been.  In a world of one hit wonders John Dillon and The Ozark Mountain Daredevils look like they still have the whole world in front of them as artists and consultants developing and implementing innovative new business models.

https://www.Reverbnation.com/StacyPriceEmotionally honest lyrics merged with the magic of her indie-pop musicality, Stacy Price energizes hearts and minds within the Denver music scene. She possesses a lush crème vocal style while utilizing the punch and drive of indie-rock magnetism which is the keystone of her grounded yet creative sound.
 
Stacy grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, listening to the underground sounds of R.E.M., The Indigo Girls, Sinead O'Connor, Souixsie and the Banshees, 10,000 Maniacs just to name a few. Her latest project 'Paper & the Queen' explores the raw emotion that often leads to fiery situations with songs like "Just Get Me Out", "She's the Queen" and "Paper Thin." In other facets, this album touches on the tenderness and explosion of new found love with songs like "Your Return" and "Tangled Up."
Stacy's Lush, smooth yet strong and captivating vocals in juxtaposition to the amped up guitars of 90's underground rock, fuels a sort of resurgence, linking two pairings that normally aren't mixed together. Think Ingrid Michaelson vocals with the driving electric guitar rhythms of Liz Phair.

https://www.Reverbnation.com/LaraRugglesLara Ruggles grew up listening to Patsy Cline, Emmylou Harris, Cat Stevens, Joan Baez, and the Judds. She sang her first concert in three-part harmony and won her first poetry slam.

Lara's unique blend of avant-pop and soul-folk is passionate and powerful, even when sung from whimsical points of view such as the perspective of a purse. With the attention to lyricism of Conor Oberst, the intensity of Florence and the Machine and the ear for infectious melodies of Ingrid Michaelson, Lara’s piano and guitar-driven originals invite the listener on a journey through soaring hooks, battle scenes and postcards written from well-loved and desolate desert landscapes...
