Bentwindhttp://www.bentwind.com/ Bent Wind was formed in 1969 in the Toronto, Ontario area of Canada . The original band consisted of Gerry Gibas( Guitar & vocals) Marty Roth (rhythm guitar, vocals) Sebastian Pelaia (bass) and Eddie Thomas (drums).
While only together for a short time the band recorded and released an album entitled, Sussex, in 1969 on the Trend label in Canada . The album was pressed in a very limited quantities and today there is believed to be less than 500 copies world wide.

The album quickly became one of the most sought after pieces of Canadian music and the album is now considered one of the rarist collectable albums in the world with original pressings fetching thousands of dollars on the collectors market.

In 1989 the band, now under the control of Marty Roth, reformed with new members and recorded an album called, The Fourth Line is...You Will , that was released in a very limited independent pressing. That album has also became a collectors item because of its limited availability.

In 1996, Bent Wind released their first CD, Shadows On The Wall, which is another limited edition release of only 1000 copies.

Ossie Gurley (Writer and producer of “Who Let The Dogs Out”

Who Really Let The Dogs Out?

It' s hard to watch a sporting event these days without hearing the crowd scream Who Let The Dogs Out followed by a frenzied series of barking noises. Several professional baseball and football teams argue vehemently over who was the first to use the popular phrase.20/20 Downtown, the Seattle Mariners were credited with being the first team to use it when they played the song Who Let the Dogs Out by the Baha Men this past summer.

But if this is true, then how is it possible that fans of the Mississippi State Bull Dawgs could be heard on ESPN shouting the same phrase over a year before the Baha Men ever released their song? This can be answered by Danville, Virginia based rapper Chuck Smooth.

It is a little known fact that the song released by the Baha Men under the name Who Let The Dogs Out is actually a remake of a Caribbean song titled Doggie, co-written by soca artist Anslem Douglas and composer/producer Ossie Gurley.

Chuck Smooth heard Doggie while vacationing in Antigua in the spring of 1998 and knew instantly that the catchy chant in this song that asked the now famous question would make a great idea for a rap song. After returning home, he licensed a sample of this phrase and wrote a new rap song that he called Who Let The Dogs Out.

Who Let The Dogs Out by Chuck Smooth debuted at #20 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles chart on November 28, 1998. The song moved quickly throughout the south and topped record pool charts in South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi (where it was soon adopted by the Mississippi State Bull Dawgs as their fight song). In May of this year, before the Baha Men ever even released their single, the Chuck Smooth song was named the #12 Rap Single of the Year by Billboard (May 6, 2000 issue page 88). In August of this year, it was #1 for the state of Mississippi on Amazon.com and is currently still on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart!

The label's success caught the attention of Artemis Records who contacted Wingspan in the spring of this year and began negotiations for a distribution deal which included the release of Who Let The Dogs Out? by Chuck Smooth to Top 40/Pop radio. The negotiations continued into early summer until Wingspan learned that S-Curve/Artemis had just released a remake of Doggie by the Baha Men. They had changed the name of the song to Who Let The Dogs Out, rearranged it to make the chant more prominent and even added a rap to the end. When Wingspan inquired with Artemis about the situation, Artemis withdrew their offer.

Wingspan Records then enlisted marketing consultant Paul Porter along with WYZ GIRL Entertainment Consulting. WYZ GIRL also negotiated a production deal with Doggie co-writer Ossie Gurley who will be releasing songs on Wingspan Records in the near future

Eddie Bullen “ Hands Up”
Performer, arranger and producer on Sway's Juno Award nominated Hands Up which, as theme music for Club Med's highly successful TV commercial, went on to garner Gold for Bullen.

Doung Richardson of KOLLAGE

Doug Richardson
Doug Richardson: Doug studied at the Oscar Peterson School of Music and privately with Frank Uhrin. He continued his musical education at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and then at the Dick Grove Music Workshop in Los Angeles.

Doug Richardson worked with many well known jazz musicians including Roland Kirk, Milt Jackson, and Freddie Hubbard. His varied musical background encompasses TV ( The New Generation and Black Hallelujah), radio (Jazz en Liberte), concert dates and club work. Doug also appeared at Montreal’s World’s Fair with Nelson Symonds Quartet. Doug has performed with Nelson Symonds, Wild Bill Davis, Harry Sweets Edison and Fred Anderson. He has been a special guest with Bobby Irving, formerly with Miles Davis and Perry Wilson. Also formerly with Sonny Rollins and a special guest for "The Joy of Sax" presented by Jazz Fm. 91.1

Doug is a very likable, natural guy, which is reflected in his natural lifestyle, natural hairstyle and natural approach to jazz. There’s a wealth of creativity in the eight tunes contained on his “Night Talk” album. He is equally at home playing the blues or a saucy salsa. Anyway you look at it, he’s one of a kind.

Rob Sterling

Featuring
ON WITH THE SHOW
REMINDER
SKY WAS FALLING

Originally from Toronto, Sterling started rock music at an early age, singing in a Junior High School rock band.  By thirteen, he was a drummer in Teenage Kicks, a novelty band that received generous media attention in Toronto as the youngest rock ‘n roll band ever.  Once finished high-school, he spent a year at Humber College in Toronto for jazz bass and the jazz influence can be found these days in his guitar work.  While in India in 1999, he played bass in Silk Route, the country’s most successful Hindi-Pop band but as soon as he was back on Canadian soil in 2000, he set out to make a name for himself on home turf. Recently, he has become a member of the Canadian songwriting association, SOCAN.  Currently he is working on fresh recordings in his new digital studio. These new demos will fuel his new live band VIRAL SPIRAL and will be featured on the forthcoming release tentatively titled QUARAN-TEEN.          Watch for Rob Sterling’s new CD release, “NORTHERN SUN” a record that gives the Canadian music scene one more reason to be proud!

Band: Uncle Seth

Web Site: http://musicface.com/u ncleseth

From its suburban inception in 1999, Uncle Seth has never
  stopped performing its "exuberant and accomplished mix of pop, rock,
  acoustic folk, twisty grooves, tender ballads, and pretty melodies, topped
  off by·rousing vocals" (John Pigeau, PIC Press, Kingston).
 
  This energetic four-piece band performs uniquely fun and edgy songs in the
  vein of such influences as Barenaked Ladies, Ani DiFranco, Elvis Costello,
  Blues Traveler,  David Bowie, and Joni Mitchell. The band's strongest
  asset is its dynamic and funny live show, which never fails to infuse
  audiences with the desire to dance and always leaves them grinning.
  "[Listeners are] immediately drawn to the sweet and sultry sounds of Uncle
  Seth,ä says Mary O'Grady of TO-nite Magazine, "as well as being impressed
  by the humour and the lighthearted banter between [the band] and the
  audience."
 
  A myriad of rave reviews for Uncle Seth's 2002 debut album Lame Suburban
  Poetry helped further the momentum of the band. Finishing third place in
  the "2003 Songs Revealed Competition", Lame Suburban Poetry was also
  embraced by the CBC, where singles such as "If I Laugh", "Little Pieces",
  and "Gentle Shove of Fate" were heard across Canada. The combination of
  quality songwriting, inspired lyrics, adventurous instrumentation, and
  invigorating female vocals made this album stand out among music fans and
  critics alike.
 
  Uncle Seth's 2005 EP Forgive & Forget, Volume One captures their
  distinctive live energy with three live tracks in addition to three
  studio-produced songs. Of the new release, John Lofranco (Maisonneuve and
  Vallum magazines) says, "Musically, there's all sorts of great stuff going
  on·treat [Uncle Seth] like you would treat the latest U2 album: play it
  over and over and over again."
 
  Uncle Seth's latest release is a single, their high-energy take on the
  Joni Mitchell classic "Both Sides, Now." After playing the song in August
  of 2005, no less an authority on cover songs than Coverville podcast host
  Brian Ibbott proclaimed simply, "that rocks!"
 
  The band's most recent honours include a nomination as BEST ROCK ACT at
  the 2005 Toronto Independent Music Awards, and being named Dose Magazine's
  Artist of the Week for April 11-15, 2005.
