Hello and as always, your support and encouragement has been truly appreciated. We have had a really great year in 2015. Many first, we became National Recording Artists thanks to our out of state Fm/AM Radio Stations adding us to their rotation. We had our first media/license credit, as well as our first Review in a legitimate music magazine, released our full length album "Unicorn Graveyard", have our album in multiple local Nashville music stores, etc... it has been a humbling and confidence building year for us both. For the new year, we are starting it out by performing at the legendary Exit/In and are going into SweetSong Nashville within the first couple of weeks of the year to begin recording the new musical works for our upcoming album. We both wish to thank you with everything we are for taking the interest and supporting/encouraging our musical works and we look forward to sharing more with you as we move forward.
Hello to all and thank you for checking in with us... many things have been manifesting; such as Unicorn Graveyard is officially released and it has been received well. It is available for in store purchase if you are in the Nashville area at The Groove and will be in more stores by the end of the week. It is also available at http://cnmsites.wix.com/vladopus9/ and although the site is still under construction (if you have any trouble ordering feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org), you can purchase the all original ten song album for $5.00 plus $3.00 shipping and handling. The first batch of orders went out at the beginning of the week without a hitch. There will be the ability to order single and digital downloads shortly but I encourage you all to order it through the mail, the artwork is quite interesting. We have been playing out a lot and have begun to book larger venue shows here and there as well as out of Nashville venues also. We truly appreciate all of your encouragement and support. Please keep listening and we will keep creating. Thank you (Vladopus9)
Hello all, 2014 was quite the year for us... we had our first FM Radio In Studio Performance, had our first Marque Billing, made many friends, began recording in the greatest studio in the world (SweetSong Nashville), nominated for Duo of the Year on the Nashville Universe as well as Lisa being Nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, air play on multiple internet-radio, FM, and AM radio stations, working with a few non-profit organizations concerning musical works of ours being used, and the list goes on and on... we are really looking for the life/professional experiences that are to come... Vladopus9 will be back into the studio next week (SweetSong Nashville)... very happy to be sharing "She's a Going" with you all... as always thank you for the encouragement and keep checking in... much more to come.
July and August have been very productive months... from new venues, new recordings, and significant strides in both musicianship and professional concepts and issues. Lisa has truly grown into a magnificent and well rounded/experienced vocalist. By the end of this month (September) Lisa will begin adding percussion oriented instruments into the musical works which has us both excited. We are still continuing to record Unicorn Graveyard at (out forever home for recording) SweetSong Nashville and we are in serious discussion as to keeping the album to eight songs which will enable for us to only need to record two more songs and then duplication and packaging can begin. I will keep you posted... as always thank you for the encouragement and support. Joe and Lisa
June was a fantastic month... we performed at four music festivals and a ton of venues. We began recording with the most amazing individual at Sweetsong Nashville (hope you are enjoying them as they are posted). We have a couple of big announcements but we are still needing a little more time before we make them public. Everything is very positive and it is because of all of you who have taken interest in these musical works. Thank you and keep checking in... so much more to come.
Hello all, it has been a while since I last posted an update. You will be happy to know that Vladopus9 is moving forward... we have began to actually obtain tangible and consistent new opportunities as well as booking steady. Our live shows are more solid than ever and we are extremely optimistic for the future (both near and distant). There will be some major announcements sooner than later and we are very excited to share the news with you. There are new shows being added all of the time and expect postings of a Video Interview that Vladopus9 was fortunate enough to be included in for a series concerning Music City and the performers and musicians that are directly involved. There will also be some new live performances added as well. Keep checking in and as soon as we can... we will have a few significant announcements to share. As always, thank you for all of the encouragement, support, and interest... keep checking in and we will keep writing music... thank you all. Joe and Lisa (Vladopus9)
It has been a while and much has transpired... we have released our first official single "The Hovering Boot" recorded at Center Street Recording Studio, we have began booking shows again after a short and necessary hiatus in order to add to our library... looking forward to all upcoming shows but we must admit we are very excited about the June 14th Hillbilly Hot Rod Music Festival and Birthday Bash... we are truly appreciate of all of the encouragement and look forward to seeing you all at the shows and sharing the new musical works being created... keep checking in and we will keep posting...
Well a lot has happened since I last checked in... we were Artist Spotlight of the week on VRadio Nashville, earned a performance slot in the Nashville Universe Industry Great Reveal, were invited guests to the first worldwide writer's round on VRadio Nashville, a school in Illinois is going to use some of my instrumentals in their performance arts and choir programs for students to learn how to write song lyrics, I have written two new songs, I began a welcomed collaboration with a great artist (Doug Briney), and I was asked to assist a youth with his songwriting endeavors, and next week we will begin recording the full length album Unicorn Graveyard... in addition, we have played many shows. I am very humbled as my songwriting progresses and I am looking forward to more interactions, performances, and life experiences as both a musician and a songwriter... keep checking in and keep writing music and so will I...
The September 3rd show at Dan McGuinness which we (Vladopus9) will be performing at will be broadcast live on VRadio Nashville at 7:30 p.m. Central Time... hope you can give it a listen... Vradio Nashville is an internet radio station that airs all over the planet-, so I know you will be able to pick it up)... http://tunein.com/radio/VRadio-Nashville-s136848/
