Erk FM: International 431 – Full Of Grace

by Erk

Welcome to episode 431 of Erk FM: International. On this episode, Erk presents songs from CC Grace. Her bio is the funniest that Erk has read in some time & it really sums her up well!

  "C.C. Grace is a classic country and folk singer, currently living in Pasadena, CA. Little is known of her early life. She appears to have emerged on the California music scene full-grown. Some say she is the alter-ego of Callie Cardamon, a jazz singer also living in Pasadena, California. But Callie Cardamon is a brunette and barely five feet tall, whereas C.C. Grace is a blonde and easily 5’4” (in her kickass cowboy boots), so that couldn’t be true. Plus, C.C. Grace denies that she is anyone’s alter-ego and finds it insulting to be considered a mere creation of someone else’s imagination. It’s true that C.C. doesn’t remember much of her life prior to about seven years ago when she started writing and recording most of the songs which appear on her “Fortunate Woman” CD. But that could be due to many reasons, most likely that she fell and hit her head and didn’t regain consciousness until now. Regardless of who she...

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 419. On this episode, Erk features some instrumentals. Instrumentals are often not played on music podcasts, especially for an entire episode. All music supplied by AirPlay Direct.

  On the first part of the episode, Vitamin String Quartet play a selection of songs inspired by Pink Floyd. Many bands are inspired by Pink Floyd but to have a string based collection of songs is unusual for Erk FM! Apart from Pink Floyd, the collective of musicians based in Los Angeles have played string tributes to many of the famous names in music.

    On the second part of the episode, Erk features guitarist Hrant Bedoyan. With a variety of influences & cultures growing up, Hrant started playing bass & keyboards as a child before being heavily inspired by harder music as a teenager & moving to the guitar

  Finally, Erk features Exitwound. Exitwound has been a one man project since 2002 being self-described as cool trance metal which evolved during the healing of old wounds by the artist. His guitar playing has been compared to Jimi Hendrix amongst others.
