On May 25, the EU/UK based GDPR rules will take effect which govern how companies can collect and use consumer data. And if you have a website on the World Wide Web that COULD be accessed by citizens of the EU/UK, this means YOU. So, we’re gonna talk about it and especially why it took government intervention to do this when the evil empire of marketers could’ve just handled it by being less creepy and invasive. Way to go digital marketers! We’ll also hit who’s winning and losing and give you some tips to make sure your web operations are GDPR-approved, which I will define as “not nearly as creepy” (NNAC).

One of the most versatile and cosmopolitan saxophonists in pop, soul and contemporary jazz for nearly 35 years, Michael Paulo has added his distinct saxpertise to a virtual who's who of artists, including Al Jarreau (Paulo's longest term touring association), James Ingram, No. 1 Smooth Jazz Trumpeter and guitarist Rick Braun and Peter White, Oleta Adams, Kenny Loggins, Patti Austin, Jeffrey Osborne, Jeff Lorber, David Benoit, Carl Anderson, Bobby Caldwell, Johnny Mathis and more. Paulo grew up in a musical family (his father a pianist, his mother a singer, his siblings all playing instruments) and though he came upon the sax relatively late at age 15, he quickly became first horn player in his high school band and was playing professional gigs around the islands within a few years. Rather than accept a scholarship to North Texas State, he chose a more adventurous road by joining Hawaiian pop/rock band Kalapana, which had some success on the mainland but was most popular in Japan. After playing regularly and recording on all four of Kalapana's albums from 1975 through 1979, Paulo recorded a solo album for Japanese release on Trio records. In addition to exposing him to the Japanese jazz audience, Tats in the Rainbow gave him the opportunity to work with legendary pianist Herbie Hancock.

Walrus Audio is a collective of artists, musicians and engineers attempting to find the balance between art and performance in sound manipulation. Throughout the years we have been inspired by sounds created by our favorite companies: the perfect breakup on an overdrive; a thick, punchy distortion; an endlessly sustained reverb; a self-oscillating delay. We had to give it a shot. Through many months of late night breadboarding sessions, circuit problem-solving, and sonic tweaking we have come up with a range of guitar pedals as versatile as they are functional. From smooth fuzz to cutting overdrive, our attempts have been to highlight the functions that we would want from these particular sounds. Once we had an accurate idea of the sounds we were creating, we then tried to capture the feel and representation of the pedals through their individual artwork. This process was made possible by Oklahoma artist and musician Nathan Price. Taking stylistic inspiration from classically animated films and using freehand sketching, Nathan has perfectly captured what our pedals should look like. It is our goal to make guitar effects that are as interesting to play as they are to look at. So that’s what we are going to do.

With Shadow Weaver, veteran alternative rockers the Choir took their first plunge into crowd-funding. Although the GRAMMY®-nominated group has long relied upon some of pop music’s most ardent supporters, the results were unexpected. “The response was not only stunning, but humbling,” says singer and guitarist Derri Daugherty. “It made us want to deliver, and I think people are going to be blown away by this record. It’s pretty epic.”

A fearless sonic explorer, Daugherty has nurtured shimmering, otherworldly textures by employing his guitar in impressionistic brushstrokes rather than blunt force. He has also dug for visceral tones associated with shoegazer and noise-pop styles.

Together with Daugherty’s imaginative soundscapes, the Choir has also won careful attention through drummer Steve Hindalong’s contemplative lyrical themes. Past Choir albums including 1996’s Free Flying Soul summoned images of unfettered potential alongside Hindalong’s “prayers and twisted love songs.” The new album’s title turns a shade darker, recalling the questioning nature of the group’s 1985 debut Voices in Shadows.
