ION INDIE MAGAZINE May 2017, Volume 36 - Page 4

Music by Anthony Krizan “One More Last Time” ION Indie Magazine’s May issue spotlights the Florida-based rock band NEWMACHINE--and their hook-laden music, searing guitars and voracious vocals. Senior Journalist JERE PERRY provides the 411 on this popular band with the big sound, inside this edition! Our ION family has again grown! We are welcoming a new photojournalist to the fold…GREG HILD! Pennsylvanian Greg debuts in this issue with several contributions to our May 2017 content with an impressive first showing indeed! View Greg’s electrifying photography inside these pages. Congratulations to ION “cover alum” LIZ BILLS and ANALOG HEART! Much like when Liz was jumping in the air on her cover of ION Indie Magazine back in August of 2016, this editor was jumping for joy to hear that Analog Heart got the nod to open for none other than the iconic BON JOVI! Way to go, Liz and Analog Heart! We are continuing our support of our broadcast partner AYERWAVES RADIO and owner JOSH AYERS’ upcoming June event AYERWAVES UNDERGROUND MUSIC FESTIVAL. This event, sponsored by this publication, features a plethora of independent artists and bands. This month, we are shining a light on performing artist, IRA WOLF. Learn about Ira inside this issue! And…IT’S HERE! “EYE ON JAMZ” radio—hosted by SHELDON SNOW—has launched. Be sure to set your calendar to tune in to “Eye On Jamz” every Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. EST at our broadcast partner NEUE REGEL RADIO’s site,! Our newly-revamped format debuted on April 4th—featuring music by the hottest independent artists of today, along with an insightful interview with Official CMT Artist ASHLEY WINELAND, another “cover alum” (December 2014) of this magazine. And speaking of Ashley, she is also appearing inside these pages, as she opened for Grammy winners DIAMOND RIO at the Sun City Fair in El Paso, TX. This coverage is provided by Senior Photojournalist TIMOTHY SCHUMANN—whose lens also captured the iconic southern rock band MOLLY HATCHET at this enthralling event, which was produced by our friends at UNIVERSAL FAIRS. “Music isn’t what I do, it’s who I am. Music is a life force that beats within. It permeates the senses and encompasses the spirit. Music transcends. It heals the heart, purges the soul and provides refuge from pain. Music is immortal.” ~The Fairy Rock Mother
