The Barbarellatones
The Barbaerellatones

by CA Marshall December 2015 will go down in the history books to wrap up yet another fabulous year for Starlight Music Chronicles (SMC). This included the launch of our new website as well as online Magazine. This also included the inception of the Artist of the Month (AOM) competition in July. Little did we know that this would lead to not only a winning Artist/Band monthly, but also new industry contacts, and friends to what we call: our Music Family at SMC. Part of this *New Music Family* is Robbie Quinn, vocalist for the band and we recently chatted with him about this unique band, their experience in the music industry as well as the AOM competition. Here’s the scoop: SMC -Hello Robbie!

Trashy, sleaze-o-riffic…my big influences are Bowie, The Cramps and The Velvet Underground. My previous Glam/Gothabilly band was ‘Sex With Lurch’ and we had 3 drag queen go-go dancers/backup singers and it was very fun and also very dramatic! I am from Hollywood originally but now I live in Hawaii, partly for work. I fly to LA sometimes to play shows and I Record at a crappy little studio on the other side of the island but it’s a lot of fun for me…gotta keep the creative juices a-flowin’! […]

By CA Marshall   SMC – Hello James! We are so excited to have you as our newest Starlight Music Chronicles Spotlight Artist! For the purpose of this interview and for our readers, can you please give us your (Artist) Name, where you are based out of and exactly what Instruments you do play? Nym – I do pretty much all artistic activity under the name The Lady anoNYMous. Well, performance-related activity. I guess you can call it a stage name. I’m a native of the Pacific Northwest United States, having lived in California, Oregon, Washinton, and Alaska. But the past four year I’ve been living in a surburb of Kansas City, Missouri. I play pretty much any instrument I can get my hands on! But I’ve trained as a pianist and a proficient guitarist. For the purposes of composing, I use mainly electronic equipment. SMC – We are happy to see that you are proudly proclaiming your support for activism in the (genderqueer?) community. As you know, we work closely with Morgan’s Mission (www.morgansmission.ca) which is an organization built by the Dunbar Family who lost their child/twin sister to Suicide in June of 2014. Morgan’s mission also speaks out about other societal issues such as: cyber bullying, depression, mental health issues, AND PTSD. Do you feel that what you stand for is relatable to any of these subjects? Nym – Absolutely. A lot of my past work has been about transgender visibility and raising awareness about gender issues and […]
