This page is just a few of my personal favorite musicians and singers. As I recall more I will post here in the future.
I have included on this page two that are personal friends of mine,
Bum Bar Bastards (Jim Davidson) & Tom Parella.
You can purchase Their CD's from the links provided. A special thanks to YouTube for the videos. Just a sampling of what you can find through the artist's official page links.
All singers and artists on this  page have a distinct style and type of voice I find when  listening to them reach deep down within my soul and touch something primal and basic within me. 
Quite an eclectic group if I do say so myself.
I hope you enjoy the selection  I have chosen.  I have included each with a link to their personal websites, so that CD's can be purchased or just to hear more of their music.

Bum Bar Bastards
These are some very long time friends of mine    
Who back in the time of free expression were.
doing just that over the phone lines.
They were called prank calls then and what pranksters and  .
innovators they were. As we all were in the
late 60's and early 70's very expressive and very

creative and oh so very vocal. So come and relieve some
that time's humor and mischief.
But for those parent's out there you might want to have 

under-age children pass on the listening.

Walela, the Cherokee word for Hummingbird and the symbol of inspiration
for this family of women singers. They are Rita Coolidge, her sister Priscilla Coolidge, and
Priscilla's daughter Laura Satterfield.

Check out Laura Satterfield new album.

My friend Jim Davidson turned me onto these guys in the early 70's
 and I went to several of their concerts through the years.
It is a long love affair with their music that continues today and for all time.

My Favorite Rick Nelson Song
Garden Party

Rick's Sons Tribute Sing Garden Party

Stevie Ray Vaughan
Gone way to soon.
What a treasure he was and he is missed by all of us.

Tom Jones

Nina Simone
Simone had a reputation in the music industry for being volatile and sometimes difficult to deal with, a characterization with which she strenuously took issue. In 1995, she shot and wounded her neighbor's son with a pneumatic pistol after his laughter disturbed her concentration. She also fired a gun at a record company executive whom she accused of stealing royalties. It is now recognized that this "difficulty" was the result of bipolar disorder. Simone reluctantly took medication for her condition from the mid-1960s on. All this was only known to a small group of intimates, and kept out of public view for many years, until the biography Break Down And Let It All Out written by Sylvia Hampton and David Nathan revealed this secret in 2004.


Tom Parella

Musician/Vocalist/Songwriter (SESAC)family.
Like a bartender mixing cocktails, musician/vocalist/songwriter Tom  Parella
blends elements of Rock,
Country, R&B, Latin, Gospel, Folk & Jazz in
varying degrees from song to song.
Whether performing solo-acoustic or with a band, tightly
constructed songs, thoughtful lyrics and strong melodies
characterize Parella's music. Please stop by his site and hear
 some of his music. It is an experience of spirituality
 letting his music surround your senses.
Thanks Tom for playing "Rocky Raccoon" every time I asked.

Jim Byrnes
I have been a fan of Jim Byrnes for over 15 years now.
 Incredible voice that reaches deep within my soul.
He has several CD's available here is only one link to start your search.

George Harrison
My favorite Beatle, quiet, soft spoken, spiritual with such an intensity of soul.
This shows in his writing and his music. I first say him as in the theater, waiting in line with all
those screaming girls just like me to see A Hard Day's Night. Then Ed Sullivan, just focused
completely on this young boy named George.
