3.)... FruityLoops Software (FLStudio) CleverJoe product review

Fruity Loops has been a long time fave of CleverJoe's. This superb drum loop creation software has evolved over the last few years from a 'cool and quirky' drum machine and electronica pattern generator into a monolithic musician's tool.

For the full review see:


4.) Learning to let creativity flow

Unlock the musician within! Here are a few great self-help musician books, including the overwhelmingly popular Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. CleverJoe recently reviewed his own dog eared copy of the book and highly recommends it with three big thumbs up.

6.) CleverJoe's indie band top picks

A couple great new indie bands from New York:

Prospect Place

Prospect Place, a great hard rocking female duo, consists of lead singer-songwriter Yotty and rhythm guitarist-backing vocalist Rev. Together they moved from Israel to Brooklyn, New York to start their music careers. Prospect Place's strong music has been compared to such artist as The Breeders and Throwing Muses.

Three big thumbs up - Clever Joe really digs these ladies. See their web site at:


Jen Elliott, "The Secret's Out"

Her music has been described as mixing rock, pop and blues, her voice compared to Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, Bonnie Raitt and her songwriting ability to Sheryl Crow's. Her new CD is part of a campaign to raise awareness of the plight of one of the world's great Rainforests through a joint undertaking, the Daintree Rainforest Project. Great bluesy pop rock CD, great cause.

Jen's CD is now available for sale online at: (in music stores soon)
