Nancy Kells Deserves Your Attention

Nancy studio 1

“You must have lived many lives to write such emotive songs?” Says Norman B in his in-depth and revealing interview with Nancy Kells. The Virginia-based singer-songwriter hints that love and break-ups have provided her with plenty of material to work with. Nancy’s prodigious output came to our attention as Spartan Jet-Plex on the remarkable Fox Food Records. She can also be found using the monikers Noxon Light UniversityLegendary Thunderbirds of Death!Zilla-Plex and collaborating with other talented musicians she has met on Soundcloud, Bandcamp, and Facebook. The seemingly shy, almost self-effacing musician writes beautifully (and by her own admission), sad songs. Nancy Kells’ music is way above average and deserves your attention. Make sure you don’t miss Norman B’s interview with Nancy and hear tracks from her forthcoming album titled Get Some on Life Elsewhere Music Vol. 9.

Sandra Block. Peter James. Bibi Bourelly. Lonesome Ghost.

Next on Life Elsewhere, we’ll explore the work of mystery writers, Sandra Block and Peter James. Norman B will introduce music from Bibi Bourelly, a new artist, he believes will have a big hit. And, talking of hits, this week’s Hit That Never Was features Lonesome Ghost.

Little Black Lies is the debut novel from practicing neurologist, Sandra Block who centers her gripping mystery novel around Zoe, a doctor with ADHD. A new patient arrives, a beautiful sociopath who murdered her mother, Zoe becomes obsessed with questions about her own mother’s death. But the truth remains tauntingly out of reach. As Zoe digs deeper, she realizes that the danger is not just in her dreams but is now close at hand. Little Black Lies is about madness and memory and the dangerous lies we tell just to survive. Norman B explores this fascinating book and the ramifications of mental illness, doctors and lies.

The juxtaposition between real and crime-thriller police are discussed with bestselling mystery author Peter James who will talk about his book, Want You Dead, the tenth in the Roy Grace detective-thriller series. James offers thought-provoking observations about police procedures, criminal minds and the more innocent times of Dixon of Dock Green. Be sure not to miss the early part of the interview when Peter James and Norman B share their respective experiences with stalkers!

Bibi Bourelly, the 20 year-old who penned Rihanna‘s Bitch Better Have My Money and Higher, releases her own single, Riot. “I want to give people the truth because a lot of people aren’t so authentic”. Says Bibi, and this comes across in her voice and music confirms Norman B, who adds, Bibi is going to be a BIG hit!” Let us know if you agree with Mr. B, send your comments to normanb [at] life elsewhere [dot] co.

This week’s Hit That Never Was is by Lonesome Ghost, from Dallas, TX. The plaintive and memorable, My Dear available on the EP titled, None of These Songs Are About You Or Anyone You Know was released in 2011. A perfect example of a Hit That Never Was, says Norman B and suggests that you send your selection to hitthatneverwas [at] lifeelsewhere [dot] co.

This will be a must-listen to show, make sure you tune in at 12 noon ET, Sunday, April 19 at The Source, WMNF HD3 and 5.00pm PT, Monday, April 20 at NWCZ Radio
