My Radio is sneaking through the music industry's back door by writing strong melodic rock tunes for film and TV. In other words, we want exposure and we want to get paid. This summer we signed up with placement gurus Ocean Park Music Group who are the #1 placement company for independent music.

Biography

MY RADIO
My Radio is a melodic rock accident that happened in Southwest Virginia when JP Powell (Chauncey, Bleu and My Favorite Relative) left Boston for Roanoke. It all started when the singer/songwriter ran into drummer Hunter Johnson (Down Dexter and Justin Jones) at a coffee shop.
My Radio quickly added guitarist Brett Lemon and bassist Jeff Hofmann to round out the group. They have been playing venues (like Iota, The Mercury Lounge, Arlene’s Grocery, The Lizard Lounge, Local 506 and Kirk Ave Music Hall) and festivals (Floyd Fest 2008/2009/2010-main stage, Celebrate Fairfax, Steppin' Out) throughout Virginia, North Carolina, DC, NYC, Boston and South Carolina.
After self-releasing their debut CD titled “Give Us The Sun,” My Radio signed up with Ocean Park Music Group out of Santa Monica, California. They have already landed placements with Fox Sports and are currently featured in the movie, as well as the associated trailer and soundtrack, The Joneses (Demi Moore and David Duchovny), which was released on April 16, 2010.
In addition the following are noteworthy My Radio bullet points:
-My Radio’s song “You Are OK” was selected as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition for 2009 judged by Jack White, Tom Waits, Loretta Lynn to name a few.
-My Radio’s single “Yeah Yeah Yeah” has been added to 101.5 The Music Place’s regular rotation.
-My Radio’s debut record titled “Give Us The Sun” has been added into regular rotation on FM 100.3 Radio Lanchid (Budapest, Hungary).
-In March 2010 My Radio was the featured artist on MTVMusic.com.
-“Ourstage”, an MTV affiliate, is currently promoting My Radio. They are quoted as stating that My Radio writes “ridiculously catchy songs” that exhibit “hooks and grit culled from years of listening to the Stones and Elvis Costello, with some Remy Zero pop sensibility thrown in.”
-My Radio is just finished up working with producer Micah Wilshire on the new EP Stand Up.

Lyrics

You Are OK

Written By: John Paul Powell

You don't have to sit there in your broken home watching all the fractures growing one by one. You're searching for a lifeline on the radio; looking for a song, another way to go. And then you hear a voice that calls out clearly. It reminds you of a time from last year. And now you know that you can bring that moment back here.

Stand up sing out for a better day. You're on your way to a better place. Oh my God can you see it now. You are OK.

Remember when she called you on the telephone; such a sunny day, nothing could go wrong. Then she said three words that brought the ceiling down; such a simple sentence, devastating sound. And then you hear a voice that calls out clearly. It reminds you of a time from last year. And now you know that you can bring that moment back here.

Stand up sing out for a better day. You're on your way to a better place. Oh my God can you see it now. You are OK.

And then the rain comes down. It will wash us away. When the rain comes down we will be OK.

Stand up sing out for a better day. You're on your way to a better place. I am OK.
