Stephen Wesley Impacting Top 40/Hot AC Radio

Stephen Wesley

Howard Rosen Promotion (www.howiewood.com) artist Stephen Wesley is impacting Top 40/Hot AC radio with Cowgirl featuring Slash.

During one of the most poignant speeches in cinema history, Tim Robbins turns to Morgan Freeman in The Shawshank Redemption and says, Hope is a good thing; maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. That powerful prison yard scene could very well be an outtake from Orange County singer/songwriter Stephen Wesley’s life.

In 1997, a group of Stephen’s friends nearly went on trial for armed robbery, and for reasons known only to himself, Stephen offered himself up as the culprit and took their punishment-a prison term of 8 years. At only 18 years old, Stephen Wesley found himself behind bars, seemingly at rock bottom and with no future or hope for personal deliverance. It was a chance encounter with a prison chaplain that started Stephen down a musical path he says turned his life around.

I was sittin’ out in the yard, and I was teaching myself to play guitar and I was singing along, Stephen says, recalling the moment his troubled life changed for the better. The chaplain heard me and he came up and he said, ˜Hey, would you like to be in my choir and go out into town, and I’ll take you around with the choir? You have a beautiful voice and I would just love for everybody to hear it.

Stephen says his first choir gig outside of prison was one of those pivotal life moments most musicians experience.

Everyone lined up to ask for my autograph¦ young kids and older people; several hundred of them, all asking for my signature while I was in my prison uniform, he says. Right then, it dawned on me.

bree Going for Adds Now

bree

Howard Rosen Promotion (www.howiewood.com) artist bree is going for adds at college radio May 6 & 7.

In a world where much of rock has lost its passion in a soulless sterility of studio smoke and mirrors comes bree – a 23-year-old Christian cult castaway from Harrisburg, Oregon who discovered the truth the first time she plugged into a Gibson Flying V and cranked up a vintage Marshall amp.
With influences ranging from Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley and Wanda Jackson to The Beatles, The Who, The Clash and The Ramones, BREE has created her own slice of the rock n roll pie.

Brendan Kelley Impacting Top 40/Hot AC Radio

Brendan Kelley

Howard Rosen Promotion (www.howiewood.com) artist Brendan Kelley is impacting Top 40/Hot AC radio with You Make It Easy.

Boston’s Kelley may be 21, but he sounds 35. Having briefly relocated to Austin for a wet-behind-the-ears debut, this time he headed to Nashville like a modern day Dylan, only not to make a country pop statement. With a voice that bears passing resemblance to Stevie Wonder, Kelley exists in a place between classic rock and commercial alternative. And though occasionally that tricky sonic fit hangsin the air more than delivers his songwriting, like Maroon 5, when he comes down squarely in the former, you see precocious talent. E.g., I Love You Not flits between Pink Floyd’s Money and John Lennon’s White Album tracks, with a minor hail to Hendrix and Cream/Dominoes/Blind Faith-era Clapton. He does soul-pop, too on the lightened Live My Dreams. with Jonny Lang.
