My Radio’s brand new record “Starts In The East, Falls In The West” has landed an official release date of
November 27th, 2012 (Redeye Distribution). This love letter to the roots of indie rock came to life in Boston and
L.A. with Grammy Award winning producer Ducky Carlisle and noted songwriter/producer Bleu. In support of
their record, My Radio will be touring the East Coast in November 2012 and the West Coast in the early part of
My Radio is a melodic rock accident that happened in Southwest Virginia when singer/songwriter JP Powell
(Chauncey, Bleu and My Favorite Relative) left Boston for Roanoke and ran into drummer Hunter Johnson
(Justin Jones) at a coffee shop.
My Radio quickly added guitarist Brett Lemon and bassist Jeff Hofmann to round out the group that has been
playing small theaters (Dumas and Jefferson), venues (Iota, The Mercury Lounge, Arlene’s Grocery, The Lizard
Lounge, Local 506, Kirk Ave Music Hall, Eddie’s Attic, Milkboy, etc.), colleges, and festivals (Floyd Fest,
DownXdowntown, Steppin’ Out) throughout Virginia, North/South Carolina, DC, Philly, NYC and Boston.
After self-releasing their debut CD titled “Give Us The Sun,” My Radio signed with Ocean Park Music Group
out of Santa Monica, California. In addition to landing Fox Sports placements, the song “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” is
featured in the movie, as well as the associated trailer and soundtrack of, The Joneses (Demi Moore and
David Duchovny), which was released on April 16, 2010. At that same time, My Radio was the featured artist
on MTV.com. “Ourstage,” an MTV affiliate, has actively promoted My Radio. They are quoted as stating that
My Radio writes “ridiculously catchy songs” that exhibit “hooks and grit culled from years of listening to the
Stones and Elvis Costello, with some Remy Zero pop sensibility thrown in.” In the following year, “Yeah, Yeah,
Yeah” again struck gold with a featured placement in the very first episode of Showtime’s award winning
So basically My Radio then had cash in pocket while maintaining independence. Why not make a record in
Boston and L.A.? With a Redeye distribution deal and financial support from high profile placements, My Radio
has effectively become it’s own record company.
