Radney Foster Returns to Charleston With New Music / Book Combo "For You To See The Stars"

Veteran Nashville songwriter Radney Foster returned to Charleston this month with a brand new project. For You To See the Stars is not only the name of his new album, but also a collection of short stories influenced by his upbringing in Del Rio, TX and his experiences as a musician. Radney made an appearance at Buxton Books the night before the show to sign autographs, play some music, and sample some bourbon with an intimate audience. His show at the Woolfe Street Playhouse featured Finnegan Bell and The Blue Dogs' Bobby Houck, with whom he cowrote on of his biggest hits, "Half of My Mistakes". Read More Here

The Clauses are For Hire!

While we haven’t directly asked him about his musical talents, even Santa needs help booking his gigs when the holidays roll around. So, when he and Mrs. Claus asked us to be their exclusive booking agent, we were thrilled! Along with providing the entertainment for your Christmas party, Ear For Music is now able to add to the experience by scheduling a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Whether it’s to entertain kids with a storytelling of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and getting them excited for the holiday, or hosting your corporate function with a dramatic reading of the “naughty list”, Santa and Mrs. Claus will make your holiday party an evening to remember!

EFM Featured Artist: 5 Questions with DJ R Dot

Get to know our exclusive artists a little better with our 5 questions!

Favorite Song  I have sooooo many! But if I have to pick one, J. Cole - Love Yourz

Most Memorable Gig Definitely St Patty's Day on River Street in Savannah 2016. We probably played for 10+ hours a day for 4 days straight, but played for maybe 200,000+ people at a time! To see a couple thousand people vibe and party with you is an experience you cannot put into words. 

If You Weren't a DJ, What Would You Do For A Living? I would probably get into some type of engineering job. I love fixing things, I fix all of the equipment for the Clubbullies when something goes down.

Best Part About Being a DJ  Being able to help someone escape their problems of the day.  We are kind of like therapists.  People come out to dance, have fun, and get away from the issues of the world, and I make sure to help them in anyway I can, whether it be a wedding or a birthday party.
