CBS Detroit Interviews Charlie Beans

Alex Miros over at CBS Detroit recently interviewed Five30 Music‘s Charlie Beans about his latest album, howdareyou, as well as the happenings over here at Five30 Music.  A longer feature should give listeners a little bit more background information on our goals and ideals at Five30 and a little history as well.  Check out the article here:
CBS DETROIT – Charlie Beans & Five30 Music

D.Allie – Something, Somewhere, by Somebody (8.26)

Hello Five30 Music goers.  It’s been a little bit of time since we’ve updated the site, and figured we could divulge a little news to you.  Our good friend David Allie from the rising sensation of a band Cold English will be releasing his latest solo work entitled Something, Somewhere, by Somebody August 26 on Five30 Music.

This project is produced entirely by Charlie Beans.  The album boasts one feature:  Eddie Logix, who also has a group with D.Allie that goes by the name Progress Report.  Logix also mastered the release, Five30 Music artist Matt Schwartz provided artistic direction.

The EP has been a labor of love for some time, and it just felt right to release this music sooner than later.  Sound wise, this is a little different from the standard dark production of Beans, for a more traditional hip hop feel that goes great with D.Allie‘s classic style, vibe, and lyrics.

The release party for Something, Somewhere, by Somebody will also be August 26 at The Grasshopper in Ferndale.
Check the flyer below:

What’s cool about this upcoming release is that since we’ve released Matt Schwartz‘s UPPERSdowners album last September, this will be the fourth release this year from Five30 Music, and our eighth release in total.  Thank you for checking out some, if not all of our music as it comes out.  It is much appreciated.  Stay tuned for the latest info regarding all Five30 Music artists, shows, and more.  We will try to be more current with updating the site with show info, as many acts have been getting some great opportunities as of late.

We also started our own Five30 Music page on facebook, so please feel free to give us a ‘Like’ to show some support.  Five30 Music FB Page

CHARLIE BEANS New Remix, and 2.21 Show

It’s been some time since I’ve updated the Five30 Music website, but that does not mean things haven’t been going on.  We’ve received some decent press for Charlie Beans’ howdareyou album, and wanted to put all the info in one place.  Just keep scrolling. We’d like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that attended the howdareyou  album release party at The Berkley Front.  It was a huge success.  It brought us back to a time years ago when Tony Franks and I as Abrasive Method (A.M.) would pack the place, and it was tough to move.  Thanks to everyone who shared the event, bought some merch, and most importantly, attended the show.

The next time I’ll be performing is Friday, February 21 @ Simon’s After Dark in Allen Park, Downriver.  Shout out to GIMIK PROMOTIONS for hooking this up.  I’m just doing a small set.  Here’s the flyer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My good friend Eddie Logix wanted to make a remix for a song off howdareyou.  He chose my song “(I Know) What You’re Thinking” and we released that as a special Valentine’s Day gift to those of heart break.  This is a free download.  Check it out:

We had a nice write up about howdareyou  and its’ release party in Real Detroit Weekly two weeks in a row which was pretty cool.  Here’s the link to read the articles online. http://www.realdetroitweekly.com/detroit/charlie-beans/Content?oid=1611124

I also had the pleasure of being interviewed by Origix & DC of The Zone Radio.  I’ve known these guys for a decade plus, and it was nice to talk to them about my solo album and the other happenings with Five30 Music.  You can listen to the interview here:  http://2raw4fm.com/thezone/2014/02/02/the-zone-radio-worigix-d-c-ft-charlie-beans-february-1st-2014/

We will try to do our best to keep Five30 Music more updated, but wanted to let you guys know what was going on.  Look for more info coming soon including details on Charlie Beans’ upcoming tour, as well as future releases from Five30 Music that are on the horizon.
