Guitarist/singer/songwriter Bob Mould was initially a member of HÃ¼sker DÃ¼, one of the most influential American bands of the ’80s. HÃ¼sker DÃ¼ was a post-hardcore punk band that helped define the sound and ideals of alternative rock. After HÃ¼sker DÃ¼ broke up, Mould signed a solo contract with Virgin Records in 1988. The following year, he released his first solo album, Workbook, which represented a major shift in sonic direction. Workbook was an introspective collection, featuring keyboards, acoustic guitars, and even strings.

The Rock Life
Don’t miss the premiere of the newest VH1 Celebreality show, The Rock Life, featuring Roxy family, Whitestarr. This show is absolutely HILARIOUS and definitetly not to be missed.
Led by singer/songwriter Cisco Adler, son of music mogul Lou Adler, Whitestarr has been kicking around the L.A. basin for seven years. They’ve been signed and dropped by Atlantic Records, and virtually ignored by the industry they hope to conquer. They’ve been in rehab, in the tabloids, and in relationships with some of Hollywood’s hottest starlets. The only place they haven’t been is the Billboard charts. But with Roy Orbison’s son on drums and a fleshy former lawyer named Tony Potato as backup dancer, Whitestarr is a rock and roll circus that’s as much fun off-stage as they are on. Throw in an afro-ed axeman named Rainbow, and you’ve all the ingredients for the ultimate rock and roll cocktail. Get an insider’s look at the backstage drama as these four rockers (and one dancer) fight to keep the band together and stop at nothing to realize their rock dream. It’s going to be an uphill battle, and it’s going to take more than a famous name to get there. – iTunes

Tonight at The Roxy! Jonatha Brooke with Maia Sharp!
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Jonatha Brooke has been issuing albums that merge folk and pop since the early ’90s, first as a member of a duo called the Story and now as a solo artist.
Being the child of country songwriter Randy Sharp (he’s written hits for Clay Walker, Patty Loveless, and others) and growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the ’70s had to have given Maia Sharp a leg up on her way to a musical career. That was the era of Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, and Rickie Lee Jones and music was in the Southern California air. By age 12, Sharp was noodling around on the piano, saxophone, oboe, and guitar. Fast forward to her early twenties, and she could be found on-stage at one of L.A.’s many acoustic venues performing her own jazz/folk songs to an engaged throng of fans. When not on-stage, Sharp could surely be found collaborating with artists such as Carole King, Jules Shear, Lisa Loeb, and Jonatha Brooke.
Check out Jonatha’s video for “Better After All” below, and don’t miss her performing it live tonight!
