Transcript featuring Artist of the Week: Life On Mars

1:04:20

It is now time for the Sunday Girl Artist of the Week. Who is a little bit old and a little bit new. Not age wise. After seeing that I played previous Sunday Girl Artists of the Week, Fernando Perdomo, fellow musician and songwriter Earl Kayoss and you spell that K-a-y-o-s-s, from New York got into, excuse me to say that he was in a separate project along with Fernando called “Life On Mars.”

The band “Life On Mars” consists of Fernando Perdomo, who is both producer and artist on vocals and playing almost all instruments. Earl Kayoss who is a songwriter and artist on vocals and their special guest is Durga McBroom on lead vocals. As the project “Life On Mars” they have released a 10 track album called “Far” and both of the songs I will play today are from this album. The 1st is “Oblivious.”

That was “Oblivious” by “Life On Mars.”

Songwriter and musician Earl Kayoss has written over 700 songs and his website is called, rather appropriately Over700Songs.com and that is the number 700. Earl says that the lyrics are the part that are the most important to him and with each of his songs he wrote the lyrics first with the music coming out of the lyrics. Earl is a registered songwriter and his publishing company is “Vindictive Cat Ltd.”

Fernando Perdomo, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and in demand producer. Originally from Miami Beach, Florida is now based in Los Angeles, California. Whether working on his solo projects or with other musicians, he is highly supportive of other musicians and respected by them. Fernando owns and operates “Reseda Ranch Studios” where he has also had success creating music for film and TV. Fernando’s website is FernandoPerdomo.com.

The guest member of “Life On Mars” is Durga McBroom. A vocalist from Los Angeles who is particularly known for her 3 world tours with “Pink Floyd” and her solo career with “Blue Pearl.” You can find Durga at Facebook/DurgaMcBroomHudson and on Twitter as MrsDurgaMcBroom.

The final contributor to “Life On Mars” is Ruti Celli on vocals and cello. Israeli born, classically trained cellist Ruti began her musical journey at the age of 8. She moved to the USA in 1997 to complete her degree in cello performance. Ruti collaborates with singer-songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire Fernando Perdomo. Together they are the improvisational duo “Fern & Celli” currently receiving local recognition as a unique music act. They are about to release their debut album in the winter of 2017. Ruti’s website is RutiCelli.com and that is R-u-t-i-C-e-l-l-i, RutiCelli.com. I hope I said that right. The 2nd track that I will play for you today is the rather lovely “Someday Maybe.”

I do like that song. Sing along to that one. That was “Someday Maybe” by the Sunday Girl Artist of the Week “Life On Mars.” “Life On Mars” was formed in 2014 from a fateful collision between 2 worlds. Legendary producer and musician Fernando Perdomo and prolific songwriter Earl Kayoss.

The 2 tracks played today were from their debut album “Far” which was released in May 2015 which you can find at LifeOnMarsTheBand.Bandcamp.com. That is LifeOnMarsTheBand.Bandcamp.com. There is a new album currently in production due for release this year. Here is a preview track called “Technology.” You can keep up to date with all this creativity at EarlKayoss.com. That is E-a-r-l-K-a-y-o-s-s. EarlKayoss.com or at Facebook.com/LifeOnMarsTheBand Earl is on Twitter at Over700Songs.

Here is yet another previous Sunday Girl Artist of the Week, Barb Jungr with her reinterpretation of the very aptly titled David Bowie classic “Life On Mars.”
