Axon Radio(feat. Gerald Albright): Prom Drama


Recently I was contacted to get my opinion on a potential new release by a studio session creation. Two musicians from Indianapolis-- Drummer Travis Brant and Bassist Cory Carleton, who called themselves Axon Radio, sent the basic track to Grammy-nominated Producer-Manager Bud Harner to see if he would produce it. Bud enlisted Gerald Albright on sax, Michael Thompson on guitar, Luis Conte percussion, Matt Rhodes on keys (The Voice) with Travis and Cory. The song was mixed by Steve Stykes. Bud reached out to me for my opinion of the song before releasing it.  I happen to be with a friend Arnold Cole who has a good ear so we listened and gave it two thumbs up. Upon release it was the #2 Most Added song on the Billboard Smooth Jazz chart and of course you can hear it on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
