Pieter Hendriks - Soothsayer Orchestra
Today
Pieter Hendriks - Soothsayer Orchestra
On this episode Brian is joined by Pieter Hendriks, the man behind Soothsayer Orchestra.Soothsayer Orchestra releases new album "The Last Black Flower" on 4th February 2023 via Lay Bare Recordings.Pieter Hendriks is a musical solitudinarian who has enough gumption to leave the commonplace behind and only take with him what can enrich his music and performance. There is a certain weight of tragedy in his music. Pieters gravelly voice possesses an uneasy moodiness that reflects doom and despair, which immerses you in the dark side of life. Then, amidst this darkness Hendriks shifts his compositions to newfound hope, warm and flowing, creating a longing, yet bold mood.Born and raised in the early 80’s in a small, isolated town in the south of The Netherlands, Pieter was introduced to music at a young by his parents. With instruments laying around their home and a large record collection which got him hooked on everything from Leonard Cohen and David Bowie to Band of Gypsy’s.Musically, Hendriks grew up in the gritty hardcore-punk scene of the mid 90’s playing drums in several acts such as Reaching Forward and Born From Pain, touring internationally sharing the stage with names as Type O Negative, Sepultura and Fear Factory. The new millennium brought a musical shift towards southern rock inspired blues in his role as drummer for Black Bottle Riot playing shows with acts such as ZZ Top, Pearl Jam and Ten Years After. All these influences plus his parents record collection create a solid foundation for the diversity of Soothsayer Orchestra.In 2021 Dutch label Lay Bare Recordings released his self-titled debut album, most lyrics and song ideas were written in an old caravan in the middle of the dark forest of the Eifel in Germany. Isolated from modern temptation, just loneliness and silence to focus on his songs. In his brand-new studio, fittingly named “The Dungeon”, Hendriks crawled back into writing mode for new album The Last Black Flower and explored new territory, always looking for new influences. Elements of electronic industrial music and psychedelic vintage rock blend with the dark bluesy foundation on which Soothsayer Orchestra is firmly built. Lyrically and conceptually this album can be seen as a documentation of self-reflection that Hendriks went through during the often hopeless and haunting years of the pandemic. What came out of this is a beautiful and very honest album that lays bare one’s soul and takes the listener on a musically dynamic journey through Hendriks his mind. Tune in to hear about:The Last Black Flower.Pieters early influencesConcert experiencesFuture plansMuch much more!!Find Soothsayer Orchestra here:https://www.instagram.com/soothsayer_orchestra/Find CTMU here:https://linktr.ee/ConcertsthatmadeusNewsletter: https://concertsthatmadeus.aweb.page/p/f065707b-2e34-4268-8e73-94f12bd2e938If you would like to support the show you can do so by rating/reviewing us on Itunes and Spotify or by signing up at https://www.patreon.com/ConcertsthatmadeusSave 10% on Band Builder Academy membership by following this link https://bandbuilderacademy.com/Brian_Concerts/join and using promo code "concerts" at signup.

Ruff Majik
On this episode Brian is joined by Johni Holiday, frontman and chief songwriter of South African stoner rockers Ruff Majik.Originally formed in 2012, it wasn't until 2015 that Ruff Majik released their debut EP "The Bear" which led to some touring and recognition.Fast forward to 2022 having built up a rockin back catalogue of music, a strong following and having achieved something most South African bands aspire to, touring Europe. Ruff Majik released their latest single "She's Still a Goth" on 28th October. Johni and his wife's fascination with b-grade horror and gothic imagery has always been influential in the lyrical themes and overall image of the band. When Anni fell in love once more with 80's tinged gothic synthwave during the pandemic, it inspired him to write a tune in ode to her - featuring references to classic gothic imagery whilst still fitting neatly into the realm of Tarantino-esque desert rock. The track is the first single from their highly anticipated upcoming album Elektrik Ram, which drops in April 2023 via Mongrel Records.Tune in to hear all about:She's Still a GothThe bands highly entertaining approach to social media.Johni's concert experiences.Why a Ruff Majik concert will be the wildest show you will ever attend.And much much more.Find Ruff Majik here:https://www.ruffmajik.com/https://www.facebook.com/ruffmajik/https://twitter.com/ruff_majikhttps://www.instagram.com/ruffmajik/Find CTMU here:https://linktr.ee/ConcertsthatmadeusNewsletter: https://concertsthatmadeus.aweb.page/p/f065707b-2e34-4268-8e73-94f12bd2e938If you would like to support the show you can do so by rating/reviewing us on Itunes and Spotify or by signing up at https://www.patreon.com/ConcertsthatmadeusSave 10% on Band Builder Academy membership by following this link https://bandbuilderacademy.com/Brian_Concerts/join and using promo code "concerts" at signup.

Atomic Drive
Nov 17 2022
Atomic Drive
On this episode Brian is joined by Floris from South African rock band Atomic Drive.Atomic Drive is an original high-energy, melodic riff rock band from Cape Town, South Africa. Drawing influence from the likes of Audioslave, Guns n Roses and AC DC, the band was formed in 2019 by Floris le Roux (Vocals, Guitar), Steph Nortje (Drums) and Nick Kuiper (Bass, Backing Vocals). Since then, Atomic Drive has released numerous Music and Lyric Videos.Following the release of their debut single "My Beautiful Life" the band received favorable reviews which led to them being booked for shows and festivals across South Africa. Sadly, the outbreak of COVID-19 and implementation of national lockdown hampered all further arrangements for these shows, with dates eventually cancelled shortly thereafter.During lockdown, the band decided to focus on creating more music, resulting in the subsequent release of their second single in April 2020. “Face of My Enemy” was accompanied by a hauntingly artistic lyric video, quickly becoming a favourite, not only for Atomic Drive, but anyone who saw it. This would also turn out to be one of the last releases of the band with vocalist Jesse Jordan who immigrated to the UK with family. In honour of their time together, Atomic Drive had their last live performance with Jesse in October 2020.The year 2021 was set to be a time to regroup for the band that had set out to find a replacement vocalist, auditioning many singers around Cape Town. The uncertainty of shows and future commitments that continued within the industry as a result of COVID-19 and the lack of finding a new vocalist resulted in the band taking time off to reorganize for the remainder of that year.As the industry slowly started to recover in 2022, so did Atomic Drive after deciding to keep their vocals in-house, with Floris taking over as vocalist and Nick on backing vocals. Taking some rehearsal time with this new dynamic, the band fervently enjoyed the three-piece setup and decided to permanently keep the line-up as is.Tune in to hear all about:The latest release "Wires"The formation of Atomic Drive.How the band dealt with show cancellations and a change in lineup following Covid.Floris' musical history.Concert experiences and much much more.Find Atomic Drive here:https://www.facebook.com/atomicdrivesa/https://www.instagram.com/driveatomic/https://open.spotify.com/artist/08dR3D9mPEFjMPvt6l2Pop?si=W3g2tvOLSYiRti8M17WIwAhttps://music.apple.com/us/artist/atomic-drive/1456425367Find CTMU here:https://linktr.ee/ConcertsthatmadeusNewsletter: https://concertsthatmadeus.aweb.page/p/f065707b-2e34-4268-8e73-94f12bd2e938If you would like to support the show you can do so by rating/reviewing us on Itunes and Spotify or by signing up at https://www.patreon.com/ConcertsthatmadeusSave 10% on Band Builder Academy membership by following this link https://bandbuilderacademy.com/Brian_Concerts/join and using promo code "concerts" at signup.

Chokesetter
On this episode Brian is joined by Jesse from Chokesetter.Chokesetter formed in 2018 with a few old friends and longtime veterans from the local music scene in Northwest Indiana.

Burnline
Oct 20 2022
Burnline
This week Brian is joined by Lauren and Jason from BURNLINE.Songwriting duo, BURNLINE, is an ecosystem of sound. Comprised of transcendent, echoing vocals by Lauren Davis and steady, river-rippling guitar by Jason Mann, BURNLINE has played gigs both near and far, small and large. In one moment Mann is harmonizing with the chatter of winery patrons, in another Davis is opening for indie rock acts like Car Seat Headrest. Together, they boast grit and gravel, cotton-ball clouds and blue sky. Davis has performed straight-forward rock most of her musical years. With the help of Mann, she found that her true voice is more country with a dash of blues. Mann has been a full-time musician for decades, and is the master of strings and ivory. The two collided when Davis was recruited to front another project. "Something clicked, and I'm loving the gritty and honest sound. He's insanely talented, and I think he pushes me to be more. I’m excited about what we've been able to create," Davis explained. BURNLINE’s music flutters between smooth and gritty, empowered and vulnerable, landing right in your ventricles. Fans of Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, and Kacey Musgraves will appreciate the duo’s raw storytelling and soulful melodies. They’re not prettied, they’re not sugar-coated, they’re definitely not songs you've heard...but they are absolutely relatable. Tune in to hear all about:The history and formation of BURNLINE.The recording process of the debut EP Matches.Jason and Lauren's influences.Concert experiences Future plans and much more.Find Burnline here:https://burnlineband.com/https://www.facebook.com/BURNLINEBAND/https://instagram.com/burnlinebandhttps://www.tiktok.com/@burnlinebandFind CTMU here:https://linktr.ee/ConcertsthatmadeusNewsletter: https://concertsthatmadeus.aweb.page/p/f065707b-2e34-4268-8e73-94f12bd2e938If you would like to support the show you can do so by rating/reviewing us on Itunes and Spotify or by signing up at https://www.patreon.com/ConcertsthatmadeusSave 10% on Band Builder Academy membership by following this link https://bandbuilderacademy.com/Brian_Concerts/join and using promo code "concerts" at signup.
