Halshack Ep 17 (BATTLESHACK 2) Oct 2019 --Main show
Top 10 baby!! Alright the time is here. You asked for it, the fans voted on it so you guys built your very own playlist!
All my fans did an excellent job picking us a very diverse playlist out of this round of 45 plus contenders! It comes down to taste and who participated but they gave us nice overall look of some of the exquisite talent that can be found buried all through out my shows!
All 45 of these acts have had some kind of success in the indie music biz whether it be radio airplay or opening for National acts or having their music played in TV shows and commercials! Its all top quality and hard to choose who is "better" so with that said just sit back with your favorite music listening device and enjoy these sounds from around the globe. 4 US artists, 1 Canadian, 1 Irish and 4 from England round out this list of bonafide true quality players. vocalists, songwriters and skilled musicians.
Some of the BEST talent in the world folks and it can ONLY be found under my label!
Thanks again for all the support and thanks again to all the fans for a hell of a playlist. This is just awesome!

Halshack Ep 17.5 (SHACKCREDIBLES 2) Oct 2019--Bonus show, music only
This is the second portion of the Battleshack 2 (honorable mentions) bands that got the next most round of votes to fill my time at the radio stations and your musical appetite.
Sort of like an 11-20. Special mention to National Parks and their "As we Ran" obtaining the most votes for this group of 10 semi-finalists. The next 4 got equal votes and the last 5 got equal votes so I grouped it together the best way I could into a "flow" that I normally do in a bonus show.
Please enjoy these very worthy artists of our top bands. Its apples to oranges folks, you may really enjoy these tunes alot more than what was in the top 10 and also the other 25 plus bands and artists that were conteding in the Battleshack. Some of our best singers and talent got very few votes so it depends on who is listening and who is supporting and voting. Thanks to all that voted in the Battleshack 2 and thanks to all these awesome acts for bringing us brilliant tunes and potential solid gold hits!!

Halshack Ep 16.5 (NORTHBOUND SOUNDS) Sept 2019--Bonus show...music only
Moving Forward as said by the excellent singer/songwriter Dustin Paul from NY, we are doing just that! keeping on with the Geo location theme we're trekking on northward to include all our great Northern USA bound acts.
Como Bros from NY coming in strong with 2 new songs!! These guys just really continue to up their A game!! Well done fellas!! Youve got a hit with MONEY for sure!! geez guys, the whole song and every freakin' lyric and word just screams $$$$$...lol (oh the irony and the relation every listener will feel from this song..its just one of those major clandestine hits in the making and folks guess what?? YOU HEARD IT HERE 1st on the HALSHACK baby!! They got a new one too about going back home and its just damn awesome!! Love me some Como Bros. You should too!!
From the windy city of Chicago through the brisk chill of the Ohio valley to the steel mills of Pennsylvania on up to the Big Apple and rounding out in the far north east at Hallowell, Maine. You will find the very best the USA has to offer in the indie unsigned market (that I have heard, that's the thing just like the BIG labels don't know about these acts, there's plenty I havnt heard yet..always on the hunt!!) from all types of rock, alt, pop infused genres!
This show arguably contains my best vocalists. Dustin Paul and Luis Feliciano of (Ode to No One) Como Brothers as well, Minshara, Heavy English..dag-on there is some damn fine talent in this show!!
I chose NYC and the Statue of Liberty and the Twin Towers as a symbol of a strong Northern character to be resilient and honorable!! We should all NEVER FORGET the tragedy that unfolded that horrific day in New York. I thought since Sept 11 was just a few days ago this would be the upmost time to pay some homage to the victims and their families.
Halshack will forever remember that day as will so many others that are in the hearts and minds for all people affected that day. I have found the best picture I could to symbolize those beautiful steel structures in all their glory! NEVER FORGET is tagged on the bottom with that dreadful black stain of a date in our nations history! We have been resilient as a nation but we have lost the true meaning of NEVER FORGET! America came together the most it had come together in decades.
What has happened to our countries UNITY? We should NEVER FORGET that as well................
Find the Halshack on all major music services or Halshack.com or google me!! I'm everywhere baby!!
Shacklist found at my website and as always thank you for supporting and rockin' the HALSHACK!!
Halshack Ep 16.5 (WEST COAST WONDERS) Sept 2019 (bonus show..music only)
!!!!BRAND NEW MUSIC ALERT!!!! Most of the music in this show is NEW!!
Sticking with the location theme were gonna trek across the grand ole' USA to our west coast neighbors and serve up some Cali to Washington gold and of course we cant forget those great environmental leaders of Oregon stuck in middle.
I recently made a cool Lego video with my son Tyler, featuring (TOP by HOONCH), in order to support the show with new avenues to promote the HALSHACK.
The west coast of the USA is a busy place with many fantastic sights and sounds to enjoy while you soak up those California rays. There are many avenues of styles of music to traverse off the Gold Coast. You cant go too far without running into a famous star or band in SoCal and one day these great Halshack acts will be sharing that musical high life as well with the golden state song warriors.
The Pacific northwest has become a hub of techno jargon and silicon landscaping but Seattle rock still exists and going strong in Wash and Oregon among all the Yahoos and Micronauts running around!...lol
Who said anything about traveling all those roads and highways of the west coast to hear a bunch of great outstanding bands and artists. Look no further but the Halsahck. Ive done all the leg work for you! Ive just about not heard any better indie/unsigned acts hailing from the tri-state area! Were you guys hit with the "musicanator"? (any one who watches Phineas and Pherb cartoon will get that joke..lol)
Long live Perry the Platypus...lol and long live the Halshack so these bands will have their chance at a bright sunny future living and loving life under the sunny rays of the west coast USA!!
Shacklists can be found at my website
Shows can be found across most major music services.
