"Sprawling psych-pop-folk collective polishes the jangle 'n' bash with hooks and harmonies to soothe the savage bohemian. The kind of thing that could be a good backdrop for bar-brawling fun… Dashes of harmonica, twittering keyboards, female backing vocals and a well-defined rhythm section… [The Bell Beat] pretty much incorporate all the successful dimensions of American pop."
Evolving Shiatsu Practitioner CRAIG PARIAN on "Metaphysically Speaking", 1-2pm Tuesday, January 18th
On the next edition of "Metaphysically Speaking", Mike Holloway's special guest will be Craig Parian. Craig is an Evolving Shiatsu Practitioner. Shiatsu ("shi" meaning finger and "atsu" meaning pressure) is a hands-on form of physical massage therapy which was developed in Japan. Shiatsu is akin to Chinese acupuncture in that its purpose is to improve the flow of energy, known as "qi" (pronounced chee) throughout the body, along energy pathways known as meridians, and bring the body into harmony with itself.

When Rachael Davis first opened her mouth to sing she had clear tone, sharp control, an extensive range and a keen understanding about the nature of a tune, which were all unusual for a two-year-old. At five-years-old she learned to sing harmony to the mountain songs her mother sang to her, at eight she earned five dollars for her first paying gig with the family band Lake Effect. At nine-years-old Rachael took up piano and started writing the songs that would ultimately prime her for her future as a songwriter.
