Happy 98th Birthday Grandmere!
My dear sweet Mom turns 98 years old this month. She has four children, 17 grandchildren & 23 great grandchildren. My family is going to be hosting a Zoom Birthday Celebration call on her birthday for the extended family during which we're going to present her with a music video celebrating her life. The video features a song I wrote for her.
You're the hero of my nights
You're the hero of my days
You're the hero of my dreams
You're my hero all the way
You're my hero all the way
Healing hands that let me know
I can fail and still succeed
A generous smile so beautiful
Lending light to every need
Now as I've grown into a man
I've come to realize
The awesome power of the love
There in my mother's eyes
Somewhere between awake and dreams
Exists a holy place
It's there that I first realized
Your amazing grace

Silly Girl, my homage to Keith Urban's song "Stupid Boy"....
Many years ago when I began fumbling in the dark trying to understand what makes the difference between mediocrity and excellence in songwriting, I studied the works of Keith Urban. When I heard his song "Stupid Boy" with all of its self-deprecating honesty, I found my answer. I spent a year of my life studying how to write a song under the tutelage of a master. I tried to summon up all the best creativity I could, including trying to get in touch with my "feminine side" and wrote this, my homage to Keith Urban's "Stupid Boy" and I called it "Silly Girl". I hope you enjoy listening and reading what I came up with.
Greg Johnson & I are happy to share our newest song with you "Sparrow Pretty Sparrow", a song about a caged bird...but is it about much more than that??? This is our homage to all caged creatures of all kinds throughout all of history. From the caged bird that Maya Angelou wrote so eloquently about, to the young Mexican children caged by our malevolently narcissistic and racist excuse for a president, to the incarcerated innocents and unjustly incarcerated young black men in this country, to the slaves kidnapped and transported from Africa and forced into slave labor and, yes, even now to all of us worldwide caged in our homes for the noble purposes of flattening the curve of this pandemic.
Destination: Paradise is an IslandVibe style of dreamlike fantasy by Coconuts & Moonbeams, a musical collaboration of Greg Johnson & Starbu5st Records.
The Chain tells the story of a son raised in the Bayou by a father who's earned his livelihood and fed his family by cooking moonshine. Unfortunately, the old man imbibes his product too much and too frequently and he's a mean drunk. The story is told from the son's point of view who wishes to escape the pain, the shame of his father's mistreatment. Sung by the incredible Bobby Sahlen.

A Different Kind of Sleep
Notwithstanding the reality of the fact that only a small segment of the population are electronic industrial music fans, I cannot contain my excitement over how great I personally feel this production by myself, Ron Potter and Nathaniel Jones has turned out. This is music intended to be played at very LOUD volume. The musicality of this genre typically tells the story, but sometimes the lyrics are significant. Down to the very depths of his soul, this guy needs the kind of true restfulness and escape from the insanity of his world that only comes from a very special kind of sleep, which no matter how hard he tries, he cannot achieve. We're seeing inside the consciousness of a man who's perfect world where worries fade away is a fictional place that's been mangled by reality.

The Bitter End
The Bitter End is a hang banging electronic industrial rock piece from longtime collaborators Stuck With Green and Evan Zappa & the Necessity. The lyrics are written from the point of view of an infant child looking up at his parents and other admirers, but with the wisdom of Solomon, commenting on the big picture of life with expertise far beyond his age!

La Bruja ("The Witch")
In the annals of Mexican folklore, there is, perhaps, nothing more powerful than the story of La Bruja ("The Witch"). The Robles Sisters' masterful rendition of this centuries old folk song tells its story with powerful emotion.
As a small indie label representing & collaborating with artists from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina & Great Britain, Starburst Records is extremely concerned with the precipitous and disastrously rolled out refugee/immigration/Muslim travel ban recently implemented by the most unpopular president in American history. This is the subject matter of our latest music video featuring the song Madam Liberty by Johnny Starburst.
Keeper of the Truth
Rapazzi is an international musical songwriting/performance collaborative of artists from Mexico, Brazil & the USA. Its song "Keeper of the Truth", written in 2014 & released on its 4-25-2016 "Ready to Strike" album was written as a tongue in cheek satire without ever anticipating the dramatic political changes that were to come......
His warnings are inscrutable
His mysteries profound
A child devoid of principles
Unfettered and unbound
He grew beyond eternity
Was understood by all
The teacher of the universe
Stood proud and he stood tall
The keeper of the truth he is
With wisdom flowing free
Even fawning birds and foe
Bow to his majesty
Mankind no longer has to wait
To see why we're alive
All the answers on display
Truth's Keeper has arrived
Far beyond bigotry
Intolerance and hate
Impatient over ignorance &
Using fear as bait
Consensus as a tool
Shutting out adversity
Changing all the rules
