Mondo Cozmo – Shine

New band – new tour bus – new music.

Things are shining bright for Josh Ostrander and his new project ‘Mondo Cozmo’ – named after his dog Cozmo. Ostrander says he wanted something that would look cool on a t shirt. Fast on the rise with a rave review from Rod Stewart and he’s been praised with an ‘in tune’ Bob Dylanish quality.

‘Shine’ a big single that hooks right into the heart sounds as good or better live than the recording which is true testament to the sincerity of Josh’s voice. Asked if he wanted to share the meaning behind the song he simply replied ‘Absolutely not. I’ll just play it for you.’ It’s perfect in a way, because the song takes on a meaning all it’s own for whoever listens.

“I am East Los Angeles but originally from Philly. I am not sure if I graduated high school. I can be soulful one moment and screaming Sixes and Sevens the next. I am the guy who orders 2 beers whenever I go into a bar and I pick up the phone whenever my mom calls. I want to do whatever I want. I want to connect with everyone. There is no demographic.”

Be sure to call into their telephone line and leave some love and encouragement.

Don McLean – History Plays On

An enlightening conversation with singer, songwriter Don McLean who’s living proof that three chords are all you need – and then the rest is up to you.

‘I heard Woody Guthrie play and I heard a verse and a chorus and I thought hey I think I can do that. I wrote everything off a guitar and as I got to be a better guitar player my songs grew.’

I really enjoyed speaking with Don who brings you back to where it all started for him – what he’s learned along the way and how much he still loves playing music today.

“Take control, get your life to the place you want it to be – in the height of my career people thought I had it made but Kenny Rogers was right when he said ‘in truth you’re not having any kind of life at all.'”
