Supporting the release of their highly anticipated 4th album, and possibly warming up for headlining the huge UpRoar festival, Shinedown came to Toronto’s Kool Haus July 10th, to show their fans that they are back!
Alisha Turull started out in the music business by playing instruments. Quickly though her focus on music would redefine what she wanted her career goals to be: working behind the scenes in the music industry and helping her clients to become rockstars. Turull started her career while in college in her school’s radio station, then joined the heavy metal artist management company, Heavy Hitter. Now she’s the Executive Assistant to CEO Billy McGathy at In De Goot Entertainment (a company that manages artists such as: Shinedown, 10 Years, Adelitas, Way, Black Stone Cherry, Chevelle, Halestorm, In This Moment, Neon Trees, Sevendust, and Theory Of A Deadman). PureGrainAudio had some time recently to talk to Turull and this is what she had to say.
The sound of madness means, quite literally, the sound of life. And according to Shinedown drummer Barry Kerch, that was the driving force behind the band’s third album.
If you’ve tuned into Modern or Active Rock radio in the last few years, you’re probably already familiar with Shinedown. The Florida band’s contagious brand of Melodic-Rock has been a playlist staple ever since they signed with Atlantic Records and released their debut album, Leave A Whisper in 2003.
Recently, Chris Gonda had a chance to sit down with Shinedown’s bassist, Brad Stewart, and drummer, Barry Kerch. They talked about the origin of the band, getting signed, the new album and their many influences. Check it out!
As you lay there on the piping hot sand just a few metres away from the calm sparkling ocean, the sun’s beautiful rays wrap your body in a tingling blanket of warmth. You are relaxed and at peace with your surroundings, and furthermore with yourself. This my friend is sunny Florida, and this is paradise.
