Artist, Author & Movie Star: Linda Chorney
Grammy Nominee Chorney made history as the first truly independent artist to get nominated for a Grammy without a label, manager or publicist, for BEST AMERICANA ALBUM "EMOTIONAL JUKEBOX" for the 54th GRAMMY AWARDS. Her nomination was met with some controversy by the gatekeepers. She embraced it, and wrote her first book. Next she's going for an Oscar to piss them off, too!
Linda Chorney was born before the war. She started singing as a fetus. She received a standing ovation in the delivery room and has been singing ever since. As of the year 2013 she has released 6 CD's, 3 cassettes, 1 Grammy nomination and 0 Grammy's. She has performed on all seven continents, but only one planet. Her goal is to get 1 Grammy and sing on 2 planets.
Highlights in her career thus far are singing for Nelson Mandela, in front of a crowd of 250,000 humans. And of course playing in Sports bars where no one is listening. She just released her first book, "Who the F*#% Is Linda Chorney?!", and is going for the Pulitzer. Sounds quite self-absorbed, wouldn't you say? Just because it happened to you, doesn't make it interesting, but sometimes, putting it to music does. Now she is out with a new film and album and we are so pleased to have her on to tell us all about it.
Artist Joshua Smith :
Working in a vortex of color and often on over twenty varying sizes of canvas at a time, Smith, not unlike the dreams he credits with inspiring his work, paints in a fever of remembrance, memory, mysticism and metaphor. Taking clues from architecture and religion, Smith’s paintings are a reflection of art and faith.The US American master of oil painting Joshua Smith translates his imagination on to canvas. Through the medium of painting, Smith developed his own language which speaks of fantasy and nature, blending surrealism into the physical world, with playful imagery and fragments of playful subject matters. His paintings on canvas often presents landscapes with chairs, birds, butterflies and clouds, an imaginaire world where beings are either dreaming or existing in a parallel world, a virtual universe in which dreams and reality fuse.
So I ask you, what more could you want? "Get Behind Me, Now Stay There" more fun than ..............................
