3) The Adam Brown - Hummin' Around: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvCl2LkVl1c&t
Next us a very hot new artist named Willa Amai. I wonder if her name is a stage name or not. Why? Because "Amai" directly translates into "Sweet" in Japanese! I thought that was a bit unusual and have never heard that last name before. Anyone have a clue out there?
Willa's bio says, "At nine years old, Willa Amai began her journey writing songs about heartbreaks she had yet to experience, losses she had never felt, and social injustices she didn’t even know existed. With eclectic inspirations - from Regina Spektor records played during bath time to the poetry books her parents read to her - this Los Angeles native quickly amassed a body of work revealing lyrical complexity far beyond her years. She also created imaginative melodies, something she partly attributes to synesthesia (a neurological phenomenon in which one sense triggers the perception of another sense, like seeing letters and words as color). Now 17, Willa is sharing her music with the world, showing the extraordinary depth of her narrative voice and the subtle power of her songwriting."
Willa Amai will be featured on my radio show tomorrow morning. 明日の朝５時に Mike Rogers Show フィーチャ! (August 1, 5:00 am Japan Time) & Saturday July 31, 10:00 pm UK, Saturday July 17, 1 PM Los Angeles time) www.koradio.rocks

At #1 this week, is a band from New York named Bad Mary! I love these guys!
Their bio states: "PUNK THAT’S FAST, LOUD AND FUN! Bad Mary is Amanda, her dad, her husband, and her professor. We draw our influence from the likes of Blondie and The Ramones, Green Day and Paramore, and create our own kind of punk that takes you back to New York in the 70’s – but with a modern vibe. We like to hold up a warped, fun-house mirror to our current culture and the world we see around us. We’re pushing back on all the crap going on in the world because that’s not what’s important, that’s not where your life is – life is in the fun."
Hopefully, if this Corona nonsense gets straightened out, they will appear at our Ninja Indies Music Awards on Dec. 8!!!!

The band got the young talented players, Ayumi (Key), Maryne(Ba), Aiko(Gt), Misaking(sax). They inspired from the origin of funk music groove and offers the unique music with massive groove that made of keen senses.
