Celeste Buckingham Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On edition, is a long form interview series featuring actors and TV personalities discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Jason Ikeler interviews Celeste Buckingham.

By the age of 17, Celeste Buckingham had already conquered the European music scene. Born in Switzerland to a Swiss-American family, she rose to international recognition on the program SuperStar, indisputably solidifying her status as a pop star in Eastern Europe along the way. Her 2012 full-length debut, Don’t Look Back [EMI Czech Republic], yielded the Top 10 single “Run Run Run”, which even garnered the honor of “Best Czech & Slovak Act” at the MTV Europe Music Awards. However, in 2013, Celeste officially arrived in the United States, immediately turning heads as she commenced her next conquest.

Flaunting true individuality and an inimitable presence, she captured the attention of fans and tastemakers alike via her soulful delivery and impeccable vocal stylings evocative of influences such as Etta James, Adele, and Joss Stone. She describes her sound best though.

“I never follow a specific genre,” Celeste exclaims. “The music that I like to write and perform is raw and organic with a lot of soul and even a little bit of jazz.”

Stateside, she began a collaborative partnership with musical director Earl Cohen—whose credits include everybody from Lady Gaga, Pharrell, and P!nk to Whitney Houston, Anita Baker, and David Bowie. Together, they began working on her inaugural North American album in earnest during early 2014 with Celeste co-writing everything. In the midst of creating music, she became nominated in the “Best New Artist” category at the Radio Disney Music Awards, marking a major U.S. accolade.

Ultimately though, the best way to meet Celeste is through her music. “I am a songwriter first and foremost,” she declares. “I live the song, and every single piece is like a story or a movie. I develop a relationship to it, and I like to write about subjects that are important to me, my friends, and other young people out there. Music is a ladder for the soul. It should have content, meaning, and beauty.”

That mentality extends to her pursuits outside of music too as she remains dedicated to numerous philanthropic and charitable pursuits. Her track “Nobody Knows” benefited children with Autism, while the video for “I’m Not Sorry” spoke out against discrimination towards women. She also takes time to work with The Boys And Girls Club of America as well as CARE.org.

Celeste stands poised to make a very big impact and could very well change pop music in the process…

Rixton Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On edition, is a long form interview series featuring actors and TV personalities discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode hosts Jason Ikeler & Whitney Lane interviews Rixton.

Jake Roche – lead vocals and rhythm guitar. Charley Bagnall – lead guitar, backing vocals. Danny Wilkin – bass and keyboards, backing vocals. Lewi Morgan – drums and occasional backing vocals

Jake Roche (son of actor Shane Richie and former The Nolans member Coleen Nolan) and Danny Wilkin started writing together after they left school. They were later joined by Charley Bagnall through mutual friends and finally Lewi Morgan was the last addition to the band after meeting Jake through a girl he was seeing at the time. The band’s initial fame was through cover releases posted on YouTube; in an interview with Metro, Roche divulged that they had performed a number of covers of songs – “stuff like Ignition and Thong Song” and then decided to do “a more personality driven cover”. Roche had heard The Nolans – of which his mother was a member – performing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas when he was four and suggested that Rixton cover it. For this performance, Rixton wore “elf ears” and created what Roche called “more of a comedy sketch”. Scooter Braun saw this and offered to sign Rixton. This is a source of frustration to Roche given that “…Christmas” was the video that “took the least time and money and when [Braun] saw [it, they] were four mates having a laugh” and that “[Rixton] put a lot of effort into doing covers and uploading them”.

The band attracted attention with “Make Out”, a song that involved the members lampooning famous 2013 music videos such as “Stay” by Rihanna, “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus, “Roar” by Katy Perry, “Applause” by Lady Gaga, “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke and “Beauty and a Beat” by Justin Bieber. The video was released on 22 October 2013 but it was never released as an official single. The band’s debut single, “Me and My Broken Heart”, was released on 14 March 2014. “Me and My Broken Heart” was released to radio on 11 March 2014 and made its premiere on KIIS FM in Los Angeles during one of JoJo Wright’s shows. It has charted in Australia, Sweden, the United States and reached number 1 in the UK. “Me and My Broken Heart” went gold 27 May 2014 and Rixton was awarded their first gold plaque on 29 May 2014 in New York City.[citation needed] Their first extended play, also titled Me and My Broken Heart followed on 18 March 2014. An album is underway for release through School Boy, Giant Little Man, Mad Love and Interscope Records later in 2014. Justin Bieber joined the group on stage at the SXSW Festival on 10 March 2014. They are also lined up in mid-2014 to play summer festivals across the United States and United Kingdom before returning to North America to embark on their debut tour, The Broken Heart Tour, playing in 12 US and Canadian cities.This was followed shortly after by a UK tour in November 2014. In addition, they played a pop up gig in New York which required police attendance to control the crowds. They will open up for Ariana Grande on The Honeymoon Tour during the North American dates.

The debut album Let the Road was released on 2 March 2015.

Nate Green Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On edition, is a long form interview series featuring Actors and TV personalities discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode hosts Mikaela Phillips and Jason Ikeler interview Nate Green.

Nate Green, a Kentucky born nomad is not only singing a similar tune, but living it. Having relocated from city to city more times than your average twenty-five year old and calling home anywhere his guitar is, the young singer-songwriter hunted all over for inspiration in creating his own style and was determined to not only make a name for himself in country music, but to leave a mark.  Merging slick country lyrics with sharp sounding elements of pop, all while adding an edgy twang reminiscent of the Bakersfield sound, sets Green apart from, well…everyone.  But the road to his artistry, like many before, hasn’t been an easy one.
After honing his songwriting skills, Green packed up his things a week before finals his freshman year of college and made the pilgrimage to Nashville, diving head first into the waters of the country music industry.  Living off basically nothing, he began acoustically performing around town to make rent and co-writing with several up-and-coming Nashville musicians and producers.  Although he was slowly but surely making small waves in the industry, his writing style was dramatically different than his peers. When producers interested in working with him began pulling him in various directions trying to influence and redirect his style and sound, he realized he needed to be true to his self.

Hamish Anderson Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On edition, is a long form interview series featuring Actors and TV personalities discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Jason Ikeler interviews Hamish Anderson.

Hamish’s bio: Having made a name for himself across the local scene in Melbourne, Australia for his impressive live show that encompasses a mix of blues, rock and folk with moments of loud, electric blues-soaked songs as well as delicate acoustic balladry, Hamish Anderson’s debut EP was released independently in November 2013, it comes armed with a host of noteworthy tunes and a songwriting and vocal maturity well beyond his twenty-three years.

After topping the Triple J Unearthed charts in the pop/rock category with a demo track, Hamish picked up his guitar and headed to Sydney to record a five-track EP in BJB Studio with producer Eric J. Dubowsky (Art vs. Science, Weezer, Bluejuice). The EP was engineered by Jean-Paul Fung (Birds of Tokyo, Last Dinosaurs, Silverchair) and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Dr John, The Shins).

After hearing a few of Hamish’s songs, Rami Jaffee (keyboardist for Foo Fighters and founding member of The Wallflowers) stopped past the studio (while on tour in Australia with Foo Fighters) to record organ and piano, alongside bass player Rob Calder (Angus & Julia Stone, Kanye West) and drummer James Hauptman (Bluejuice).

Hamish has based himself in the United States since March 2014 and has just completed a national tour consisting of 18 dates (including Nashville’s 12th & Porter; New York’s Rockwood Stage; Seattle’s The Crocodile; and both The Viper Room & Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles).

For now Hamish is keen to work on an EP-basis, saying “I very much like the idea of releasing EP’s as little snap shots of where I’m at musically.” And he isn’t wasting any time, having already headed back in to the studio to record new tracks with Krish Sharma (Rolling Stones and Counting Crowes credits) at Henson studios in Los Angeles. The next EP release date is September, 2014.
