Meet My Radio

My Radio is a melodic pop-rock outfit from Southwest Virginia that has been playing small theaters (Jefferson and Dumas), venues (Iota, The Mercury Lounge, Arlene’s Grocery, Rockwood Music Hall, The Lizard Lounge, GreatScott, Local 506, The Harvester, Kirk Ave Music Hall, etc.), colleges, and festivals (Floyd Fest, DownXdowntown, Steppin’ Out) throughout Virginia, North Carolina, DC, Philly, NYC and Boston.

After releasing their debut CD titled “Give Us The Sun,” My Radio signed with Ocean Park Music Group out of Santa Monica, California. In addition to landing Fox Sports placements, the song “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” (produced by Micah Wilshire and Mitch Easter) is featured in the movie, as well as the associated trailer and soundtrack of, The Joneses (Demi Moore and David Duchovny). At that same time, My Radio was the featured “Needle In The Haystack” artist on MTV.com. “Ourstage,” an MTV affiliate, has actively promoted 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.”

“Yeah, Yeah, Yeah” again struck gold with a featured placement in the very first episode of Showtime’s award winning “Homeland.”

My Radio has since released “Stand Up For Love” and also “Starts In The East, Falls In The West” (released via RedEye Distribution and produced by Bleu and Ducky Carlisle). Absolute Punk compares My Radio to Elbow, Starsailor, Coldplay and Snow Patrol stating that My Radio has “inherent musicianship that was meant to be heard” and that the record contains “one home run after the other.” Maximum Ink describes My Radio as having “headstrong songs equipped with delicious riffs, nuclear-powered bounce and melodic brawn.” In addition, both records have received regular airplay on college and commercial radio in the US as well as the UK and Europe.

My Radio has most recently enjoyed opening for The Psychedelic Furs, Cracker and The Smithereens while continuing to work on a forth-coming record.
