JIM PETERIK

music has gotten me through many tough and challenging times in my life and has always been a source of inspiration. it seems i always fell back on music as a means of expression when the words just wouldn't come. i remember when i thought i had lost the love of my life to another man, i extended the shows i was playing with the ides of march with interminable blues jams. it may of been hard on the audience but it was good for the soul. One of the biggest hits i ever had- "Vehicle" by the ides of march, was inspired by that same girl who i felt was using me as her "vehicle" to get her around town. i just turned my frustration into sound.

thoughout my career, song opportunities seemed to come out of the blue when i needed them most. just before we got the call from sylvester stallone to write the theme song for rocky 3, i was sitting around with this great band just kind of waiting for a miracle to lift us out of obscurity. i guess it did the trick.

when my dear sister janice passed away in '95, i was filled with grief, guilt and questions. somehow, perhaps with her help, i wrote a song that became my own best counselor. it's called "Changed By Love" and became the most requested cut from my jim peterik and world stage album. i still sing that song when i need a little extra strength.

most recently, while going though my 3rd mid- life crisis, i came up with the song, "First Time Around The Sun" which ended up on my new Pride Of Lions cd which is currently doing well in Europe. The gist of this song is that every day is a new chance to press reset and start over- being a better and more loving person- to put any useless baggage away and treat tomorrow as "day one- first time around the sun".

finally, on that same PRIDE OF LIONS ALBUM IS A CUT CALLED MUSIC AND ME WHICH REALLY DESCRIBES MY ONGOING LOVE AFFAIR with music- from listening to clandestined rock and roll eminating form the transistor radio underneath my pillow, to the first time being onstage and feeling my worries magically melt away. the chorus goes. "Music has no borders, no color, no creed, music is the language of my soul, a techincolor vision on a black and white screen, it will always be- music and me". music and me copyright 2003 jim peterik music.

 keep rocking! jim

ROB BONFIGLIO

* How has music inspired you?

Music to me has always been the most direct link to the deepest emotional part of me. I was a particularly shy kid and even before I found I had an ability to create it, music really empowered me. I found I could connect with and define emotions within me that I wouldn’t have otherwise known existed without music. To connect with something so pure & that comes from such a spiritual place; it’s like wielding a sword of your own emotions. You don’t have to explain it in words, it just is. Music has allowed me to connect with people, places & situations I’d never have dreamed of without it. To me, having the gift of music is a pretty noble gift. That’s inspiring.

* Your musical inspirations?

AC/DC, Beatles, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, ELO, Funkadelic, Serge Gainsbourg, Billie Holiday, Iggy Pop, Elton John, The Kinks, Led Zeppelin, Miles (Davis), New Radicals, Shuggie Otis, Tom Petty, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, T.Rex, U2, The Verve, Brian Wilson, XTC, Neil Young, The Zombies

…and that’s only the first A thru Z list!!

* Has music helped you through a difficult or traumatic time in your life?

Music has helped, guided and accompanied me through every aspect of my life to date. Looking back over specific times of my life, there is always one song or another that plays in my head like a soundtrack to that time. I guess that goes for musicians & non-musicians alike…it’s quite a testament to the power of the medium.

* Any CD’s or songs which are meaningful to you?

I guess this would be part 2 of the last question...I could probably fill a book on that! For me, the songs that are important & meaningful are not necessarily my all-time favorite songs.

Just off the top of my head, “Daniel” by Elton John & Bernie Taupin takes me directly to the time my family & I moved from Philadelphia to Chicago, my first major life transition…I was 3 years old. Kinda like that scene in the movie “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”...

“Everybody Wants To Rule the World” by Tears For Fears is a window to my high school graduation. Everyone going in different directions, losing track of each other & starting new phases in their lives. I remember a popular kid in our class died suddenly just weeks before graduation…whenever I hear that song I think of him & how he’s forever young & a high school senior in my memory.

I could go on & on, but I don’t think we’d have enough space!

* Discuss the creative or songwriting process

It all begins with a spark of inspiration…a guitar riff, a melody, a memory; anything that evokes a particular feeling. From there it’s a matter of elaboration & keeping a thread of an idea. The idea can (and usually does) change in direction & that’s when it begins to take a life of its own. Pushing an idea in any one direction takes finesse; it’s easy to fall into the trap of forcing it to where you think it should go. I’m a stubborn person, so I have to take particular care to not force an idea. Without getting too Zen, It’s kind of like following a feather on the breeze…it’s gonna go where it wants to go naturally & your job is to guide it along. You have choices as to structure, emphasis (or de-emphasis), style, etc. & that all comes from knowing your craft. I hope to never totally “know” my craft because the fun is in learning, discovering & ultimately integrating something new. We all have room to improve & that sort of defines our humanness.

A child of the '70's, Rob Bonfiglio (a.k.a. "The Better Days") was born in Philadelphia and weaned on lp's, 45's & am radio, not to mention the hodge-podge of pop culture which permeated the decade.
 
"I have such strong memories of being a kid and obsessing on bands & music.  Songs like Sweet's Ballroom Blitz; the energy really knocked me out. That and Bohemian Rhapsody, Band On The Run, Walk This Way…it was such an incredibly diverse time for music. At what other time could you listen to the radio and hear Rhinestone Cowboy followed by Killer Queen?" 
                                                        
Co-founding mid-nineties alterna-rock band "Wanderlust", Rob found himself recording for RCA records and touring extensively. "It was an eye-opening experience for me; a real learning process to the fundamentals of writing, arranging & recording as well as the joys & rigors of the road.  The situation was ultimately disappointing and somewhat stifling to me on the creative level, but certainly an experience I would never trade."
 
Marrying Carnie Wilson (daughter of legendary Beach Boy Brian Wilson), Rob relocated to Los Angeles in the spring of 2001.  "Since moving west, I've been writing and recording songs myself, under the moniker The Better Days. I've been writing and performing for quite a while, but not until this point did I feel everything come together in a really cohesive way; a strong collection of songs that I believe make a great whole."
 
Adding the talents of Jimmy Khoury on guitar, Ted Kamp on bass & Pete Burke on drums, The Better Days as a live working band came together about a year and a half ago, garnering a reputable following through consistent and captivating live performances on the Los Angeles club circuit. Recent accomplishments (including the placement of several songs in Myriad Pictures' upcoming worldwide release of the film Eulogy starring Ray Romano, Hank Azaria & Kelly Preston; as well as writing, arranging & co-producing for Carnie Wilson's forthcoming debut solo release For The First Time), have opened the eyes and ears of fellow musicians and fans alike, making Rob Bonfiglio & The Better Days a hot commodity among music industry insiders.

"Our primary goal from the outset has been to present our music to as vast and far-reaching an audience as possible.  We live to perform and are more than ready to make our major label debut." 

Ladies and gentlemen, these are The Better Days.

JEN CHAPIN

* How has music inspired you?  
* Your musical inspirations?

I am very much a word person, and I get pretty intense about writing my lyrics, but it's the wordless expression of music itself that moves me most. I love deep grooves and searching melodies. I love to dance, even to non-”dance” music. In the song off my new album Linger called “'Til I Get There" I have a lyric "I dance to a Love Supreme" that alludes to John Coltrane's very primal, spiritual composition on the album of that same name. There was an otherwise uneventful night I remember when I first moved to NYC and was a bit overwhelmed with wonder at my new life when I found myself being released by that composition.

Overall I think I am most often inspired by music that is different from my own -- music from different cultures, especially. Bob Marley, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Fela Kuti... And I am deeply in love with classic soul, especially the stuff from the Stax label in Memphis during the 60's.

* Has music helped you through a difficult or traumatic time in your life?

My memories of first listening to music alone in my bedroom trace back to the time when I was ten and had just lost my father. I discovered top 40 radio then. I also went off that summer to a camp where I was surrounded by kindly teenagers who took me into their magical musical worlds: David Bowie, Cat Stevens, classic rock.

During my senior year in college I was simultaneously dumped (for lack of a better word!) by my band and by my boyfriend. I had been dependent on the band as my only opportunity to sing and perform. Also, listening and getting excited about certain songs and records had been a major part of the now-defunct relationship. So it felt like music had been stolen from me and I didn't know how to replace it. Not having any musical outlets of my own to comfort myself in was especially tough because I was just beginning the process of developing my own musical identity.  I didn't have any skills on an instrument and hadn't started writing songs, so I felt like I had no where to put my voice and my passion. This is why I am always eager to encourage women to develop some independence in their musicianship and/or their appreciation of music -- so that they have their own songs, their own voices, their own ears. Relationships with people and groups can always end, but the music will always be there if you make it your own.

* Discuss the creative or songwriting process --

I don't have one methodical writing process but rather have a variety of different ways that I might approach making a song. In writing the first tune on Linger, “Little Hours,” I had an idea for the subject matter of the song and some lyrical fragments, so I started looking for a push-pull kind of rhythmic/harmonic idea that would communicate the push-pull of the hours in a day. “Numbers” started with the first line of lyrics and the bass line. “Passive People” was built off a 70’s drum machine “rumba” beat and some political frustrations! “Regular Life” started with a chord pattern on the wurlitzer piano. “I Could Fall” started with the chorus melody. So it could be just a small section of lyrics, groove, harmony or melody as the preliminary idea I get attached to; and then I build it from there. Once I have that first idea, I work on the rest in steps, but I never develop a whole lyric without knowing what the music will be, or vice versa. The two have to hold hands and pull each other along!

Look for the new Jen Chapin release Linger from Hybrid Recordings, in stores on February 24th. "Once you put it on, it can become addictive." -- Steve Morse, Boston Globe

Jen Chapin is a New York based singer songwriter on the rise.  She has been dubbed "a first rate storyteller" by Jazz Times magazine, and she earns that praise many times over with her debut album, Linger.  On this captivating full band effort, Chapin reaches out to her listeners with an honesty and directness seldom heard in even the best pop songwriting.  She is emotionally intense but never overwrought; socially conscious but never preachy.  Her melodies are pure, her rhythms taut, her harmonic palette uncommonly rich.  She unravels the complex world around her with witty, disarming and ceaselessly original lyrics, revealing a hungry and seasoned talent.

Linger also kicks off Jen's multi-album deal with Hybrid Recordings, the label led by former A&M head Al Cafaro and veteran concert promoter John Scher.  Jen co-produced Linger with Rod Sherwood and bassist Stephan Crump.  Also appearing on Linger are Peter Rende on keyboards, Jamie Fox on guitar, Chris Cheek on saxophones, and Dan Rieser on drums-all major talents on their instruments, uniquely able to give Chapin's songs the sophisticated, subtle readings they require.

With Linger, Jen continues to prove that musical depth and accessibility are never mutually exclusive.  Still, she challenges her audiences with new sounds: witness 2002's Open Wide (Purple Chair Music), an entire album of duets with Stephan Crump on acoustic bass.  Jen and Stephan received rave reviews for this unique recording, and they've toured throughout the U.S. as a duo.  (Three songs from Open Wide can be heard in a full band context on Linger.)

Jen Chapin was born to an extended family of artists and academics, and raised along with her four siblings in Long Island, New York.  She entered Brown University, studied abroad in Mexico and Zimbabwe and earned a degree in International Relations.  But then, as Jen recounts, "I had the belated realization that I would go crazy if I weren't seriously involved with music somehow.  So I turned down a spot in a graduate teaching program to become a freshman again at Berklee College of Music.  I thought I would end up singing in a bar band as a sideline to teaching high school  or working for a non-profit organization, but I just kept getting sucked in deeper to the music..."

Since relocating to New York in 1995, Jen has delved headlong into the city's vibrant and varied music scene, performing at venues such as Joe's Pub, The Bottom Line, Town Hall, Fez Under Time Cafe, Mercury Lounge, and the nerve center of the new singer songwriter scene, The Living Room.  She has been a supporting act for Aimee Mann and Bruce Hornsby, and her songs have been featured in the feature film "Fresh Cut Grass," which recently won honors at the Hamptons and Texas Film Festivals and is now being broadcast on Showtime Networks.  Along with Norah Jones, Jen sings on the debut album by guitarist Joel Harrison's Free Country, a band that performs traditional country and Appalachian tunes in a creative jazz setting.

All the while, Jen has worked hard to interweave her musical and political passions.  She chairs the Board of Directors of WHY (World Hunger Year), an activist organization co-founded by her father, the late singer songwriter Harry Chapin.  She is especially committed to WHY's "Artists Against Hunger and Poverty" program.  Drawing on her experiences as a middle and high school teacher, Jen has also developed a number of workshops/lectures, including "Music and Social Action," "the Hows and WHYs of Hunger", and "Black Music in America."  She has presented these workshops to high school and college students and other audiences.

Linger, Jen's urban folk manifesto, is an eloquent summation of these efforts.  We hear her tangle with romantic struggle ("I Could Fall") and sexual passion ("Me Be Me"); political frustration ("Passive People") and career related heartbreak ("Regular Life"); the ever-present rays of hope ("Till I Get There", "Gold") amid the hectic, self-absorbed rat race ("Little Hours", "City", "Numbers").  "Jen has such integrity, such a strong identity, and such a strong idea of what she wants to convey," marvels co-producer Rod Sherwood.  In "Gold", Jen puts it another way: "[I] want to stir up some trouble everywhere I go."  With Linger as her calling card, she's poised to do just that.

DAYNA STEELE

How has music inspired you?

Music has always been my escape. I’ve never been able to play music in the background.  If it’s on, it’s my focus!  Music has inspired me to work on my songwriting craft til late in the night and all the cracks in the day.    

Your musical inspirations?

I have so many different musical inspirations.  When I was still in utero, I was said to have kicked away at the Metropolitan Opera House as Beverly Sills did her thing. Good, real music is my inspiration.  Songs written from the heart that move people are inspiring to me.

Has music helped you through a difficult or traumatic time in your life?

Being a teenager was about all the trauma I’ll ever need. And I spent many a night locked in my bedroom blasting my stereo and singing along.

Any CDs/songs which are meaningful to you?

I love Maxwell’s version of the Kate Bush song “This Woman’s Work”. I love Bonnie Raitt’s  “Wherever You May Be”.  All of Coldplay’s tunes are fantastic.  I could listen to their CDs forever and every time I do, they excite me like it’s the first time I’m hearing them.

Discuss the creative or songwriting process --

The most exciting part of the process is writing a new tune.  It’s such a feeling of satisfaction and can be a real high.

ELLEE VEN

Music has inspired me in a zillion ways! it's one of the few things in the world that is void of boundaries.  Love it. And I think it does have therapeutic properties. I went through a time where I was doing things to satisfy other people and I kept coming up at dead ends.  I was so undecided about EVERYTHING. Trying to please others.  Deaf to instinct. So the move to music was a good one.  It saved me. And recently, times have been WAY more challenging.  I've gone through a divorce, I've moved a zillion times, my father just passed away, I'm expanding on my business and still, I’m as hopeful as I could be.  Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin and Bjork are huge inspirations.  Lenny Kravitz and Prince too, They were just into expression. The beautiful thing about the songwriting process is that it's all in a moment. And if you are lucky enough to capture it, you have the power to inspire many. It is always something that’s challenging and changing.  An existence where you have lots of room to grow: that makes me tick. 

Concept artist.’ As the present races into the future, the idea of an artist who holds just that – their art – paramount above commercial aspirations seems more and more like a relic of times past; a privilege relegated to the musical icons of the 20th century. Any musician who chooses to finance their own career, competing neck and neck with giant corporate labels solely to ensure the integrity of their music, is taking a risk few would bet their livelihood on. But then, Los Angeles chanteuse ellee ven has never been one to play it safe, ever since she traded a life as a teacher and wife for the allure of the stage. And with the level of talent ellee displays on her three independent releases to date, such a gamble becomes a sureshot.

Born Jessica Kunin, she graduated from Pepperdine University with a Masters degree before a ‘moment of clarity’ spurred her to start Hot Sauce Records, her Hollywood-based independent label through which she personally manages her career, and reinvent herself under the moniker of ellee ven, a play on the number 11 which represents two equals in perfect union. “I was feeling bad about some of the choices in my life, and then all of a sudden with the ellee ven thing it was like I could create this totally different persona,” ellee explains. Her roots lie in vocal jazz, but her lush, luxuriant fusion of rock, rap and soul (a mixture she has dubbed ‘groove tonics’) has earned her glowing comparisons to artists from Bjork and Lenny Kravitz to Diana Ross and Prince. Her collaborators include Adrian Peritore a.k.a. Guy Perry of The Motels, Terral “Terry” Santiel of Rose Royce, DJ Swamp (DJ for Beck, Fuel and the Chemical Brothers) and Prodeje of South Central Cartel.

Songs from her 2001 debut album The Eleventh Hour have been placed on CBS’s Judging Amy, and MTV’s The Real World, Road Rules, Undressed and Extreme Road Rules. “Wasted” and “Feels Like Something New”, two singles from her sophomore opus Mind Control, charted high on MP3.com and commercial A/C charts respectively upon its release in 2003. ellee ven’s upcoming release, eleven by ellee ven, is a double-disc set which will include a new album of tunes as well as 4 x ellee ven, a DVD-disc shot by three-time MTV award winner Eric Zimmerman (the director behind Nine Inch Nails videos “Down On It” and “Head Like A Hole”), which also comes complete with 7 more songs. eleven by ellee ven is slated for a March ‘04 release on Hot Sauce Records with distribution from Select-O-Hits, and commercials for the release are in regular rotation on MTV, VH1 and BET. With an ethnic background (Spanish, Greek, German, Russian, and Italian) as diverse as her music, this artiste, businesswoman and universal goddess is poised to make an indelible mark on the face of contemporary music.
