Wicked Wisdom is:
JADA KOREN aka (Jada Pinkett Smith)
CAMERON “WIRM” GRAVES
More than two years ago Wicked Wisdom set out on a fearless journey to create music that defies boundaries and convention. Fronted by Jada Koren and backed by a live band whose resume displays a wealth of live and recorded projects, Wicked Wisdom has given birth to a sound that cannot be confined in a single genre. Seamlessly fusing the screaming guitars of heavy rock, driving drums of speed metal and unmistakably locked grooves of funk, with a melodic vocal style that is at the same time fierce and vulnerable, Wicked Wisdom tap into the blood line that fuels the human condition. This powerful music will be the soundtrack to revolutions as it pulses with an appeal so broad the typical restraints of our societies fall by the wayside.
When Wicked Wisdom’s Music Director Pocket tuned down his Guitar and started writing new material with recent addition Cameron A.K.A. Young Beige the two realized they were creating a truly explosive sound. This new sound combined with Jada Korens searingly honest and revealing vocals proved the band was on the right path. The addition of Fishbone founding member Fish on the drums pushed the sound even deeper into the depths of a hard, dark soundscape. Bass player Rio extreme stage presence can only be topped by his ability to fly through his booming bass riffs with an easy aggression. Rhythm Guitarist and keyboard player Korel plays the crucial role of maintaining this band’s hard melody while accompanying Pocket’s wild guitar style.

The textbook definition of perseverance is to remain steadfast and stay the course despite being faced with extreme obstacles. But if you look up the term in a musical dictionary, it may just have a picture of Omaha, Nebraska based hard rockers Emphatic beside it. The group have persevered through countless storms and let nothing stand in their way of bringing their brand of melodic hard rock to the masses.
Armed with a new dynamic singer, Emphatic were determined to rise again. The band entered Validus Recording Studios in Los Angeles and began recording their sophomore album with their backs up against the wall. The band came together and poured their energy their new album “Another Life”, which is scheduled for an August 28th release via Epochal Artists/Capitol Music Group. The album is a story of triumph in the face of adversity that scream with intensity on the record’s eleven tracks.
Produced by Emphatic guitarist Justin McCain, who founded the band and is the principle songwriter, “Another Life” showcases the band’s newfound sense of maturity and creative firepower as they belt out a powerful dose of groundbreaking hard rock. Rejuvenated creatively, the band is now firing on all cylinders with a line-up that matches the intensity of their songs. “Another Life” is filled with gigantic hooks, powerful melodies and is an inspiring triumph over adversity. The first single of the record, “Remember Me” is climbing the charts quickly.

Determination. Dedication. Drive. Strong words, but none fit better to describe the level of commitment Modesto, CA’s Better Left Unsaid apply to their music. Active since 2003, BLU combine influences ranging from the thrash of Testament, the grooves of Pantera and the sheer attack of Machine Head into a modern metal whole that stands tall beside the likes of Threat Signal, Soilwork and Meshuggah.
In 2008, Better Left Unsaid released their national debut, The Fight Within, on Stillborn Records. The album benefitted from critical acclaim as well as coverage on MTV’s Headbangers Ball for the video single “Testify”. Sophomore album Only the Dead to Witness followed in 2010, and established the rhythmic pummeling sprinkled with melody that now defines the band’s sound.
BLU are entering ProView Studios this Spring with engineer/producer Adam Ruppel at the dials. The band’s highly-anticipated third album is set for release Summer 2012 and will be followed by extensive touring.
Better Left Unsaid have proven themselves to be a workhorse band with a steadfast DIY attitude. Be it through their seven US tours, averaging 150 dates per year since 2008, or onstage alongside the likes of Killswitch Engage, Devildriver, 3 Inches Of Blood, Daath, Mushroomhead, Hed P.E. and Hatebreed, these guys undeniably get things done, and have their sights set even higher
