Karen Ann Hunter could have coined the phrase “Paying my Dues.”

For over 50 years and from the age of 17 her life has been filled with music and artistic endeavors.

Her first label signing was with disco king Giorgio Moroder in Munich, Germany in 1976, this included a single release called “Dr Funk (with Smiley)” plus a session for Giorgio on one of his own disco hits “I Wanna Funk with you Tonight.”

Back in the UK Karen got signed to a producer and through Chas Chandler’s record label and under the name Yuka with her own song “Who Would Believe a Young Man” had ‘record of the week’ on BBC Radio 1, and she did a number of high profile TV advert sessions. In 1984/85 she sang background vocals on two tours with Gary Numan. Then came two children but the jazz gigs continued.

In 2004 under her maiden name Karen Taylor she released an album of her own songs called “Kickin’ Up Dust,” an eclectic mix of jazz and blues.

She performed live on the Paul Jones BBC Radio ‘Best of British Blues’ show and regards Paul as a longtime supporter of both her and her husband.

In 2007 Karen married renowned guitar player Steve Hunter (Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper) and moved to the USA. Regarding her singing career as over and now very happily married it was her husband that encouraged more writing and recording.

In 2010 Steve produced an album for her called “Empty Spaces” and since then his encouragement has brought forth many new recordings. Also in 2010, Karen recorded backing vocals for the 2 Cellos' hit “Supermassive Black Hole.”

YOUR GUIDE TO ROULETTE EQUIPMENT


If you’ve decided that roulette is your game of choice, regardless of how much experience you have with it, it’ll do you well to understand the equipment that you need to start enjoying this game to its absolute fullest. Of course, while the game of roulette itself might be quite simple (in theory), there are many different bits and pieces that you can acquire when it comes to allowing you to play the actual game, so you might find this stage to be overall more complicated.

Taking the time to research your options here might illuminate new ways of playing the game that you hadn’t expected. You might have simply thought that you’d have to visit a casino to experience this game, but you might find that your options are far more varied.

Your Very Own Smartphone

The first thing that’s important to understand when it comes to talking about roulette equipment is the role that your smartphone can play. In the modern age, activities such as roulette have been digitized, and the online forms that have emerged present you with a far more convenient alternative to their physical equivalent. Of course, there are arguments to be made on either side about which is ultimately superior, but a large part of that answer will be subjective, meaning that you won’t know for sure until you try it.

So, where to begin? 

Making searches such as online roulette real money might be a good place to begin, and it’s important that you find an outlet that you can trust before you begin properly – but once you have, you know that you’ve got a way of connecting with your hobby whenever it is convenient to you.
 
The Wheel

If you do have your heart set on the physical variant of this game, the most important piece of the puzzle will quite definitely be the wheel itself. It might be that you expected this to take the form of an enormous table that will dominate whichever space you ultimately decide to place it, but fortunately, you might be able to find several more manageable variants that are also portable. 

Knowing this and understanding that you might be able to pack everything that you need to play this game in a small bag or case means that you can begin to introduce this game at parties or similar gatherings.

The Betting Mat

While the wheel itself provides the core of the game, the betting mat is still an essential piece of the puzzle. While this is something that could potentially be recreated through your own means, such as with a pen and paper, going the extra mile and having that air of authenticity to the whole experience could be something that actively enhances it for everybody involved. 

If you find that this is something that you want to play with during social occasions, doing everything that you can to make it a positive and engaging time could help to ensure its success. When you’re thinking about the betting mat, make sure you don’t forget the chips.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR MONEY SAFE WHEN GAMING ONLINE


How to Keep Your Money Safe When Gaming Online

Millions of people across the country love playing games online. While some people love playing purely for a thrill, others part with their money to get the ultimate experience. When playing with real money, you need to ensure your details are kept safe online. The last thing you want is for your financial details to be placed into the wrong hands. Whatever online games you play, here are some handy tips on how to keep your money safe and away from cybercriminals.

Choose Reputable Platforms

When playing online games, it is vital that you find the right kind of platforms, especially if you want to spend money. You want to ensure that you aren’t getting scammed, after all. This applies to all types of gaming, but especially in the casino world. 

When you are looking to wager real money in casino games, you should compare different gambling sites at gambleonline.co. You can look at whether you get any additional bonuses for choosing this site. 

Most importantly, though, you can learn who is reputable and trustworthy. There are always new online casinos popping up, but you can look at comparison sites that have already separated the good ones from the bad to make this easy. Always check out ratings and reviews from other players before deciding on a gaming platform. That way, you can be confident your details are kept confidential.
 
Use Strong Passwords

If you enjoy gaming online, you should always make sure to use an array of passwords. Some gamers make the mistake of using the same password for their accounts and online banking. This means should a cyber criminal gain access to your gaming account, they won’t have too much trouble logging into your bank account either. 

You don’t want to lose money, so make sure to use strong passwords that are hard to crack. A general rule of thumb is to never use ‘password’ as your password!

Never Use Public Wi-Fi


For those who are always on the go, you may want to play online games to pass the time. Whether you’re in a café, hotel, or on public transport, you should refrain from using public Wi-Fi to play. This is because you can never be too sure about who is around you and see what you’re doing. It’s wise to stick to your cell phone data instead or wait until you’re home to play online games.
 
Be Careful Who You’re Talking To

One of the great benefits of online gaming is the opportunity to engage with people from all four corners of the planet. When conversing with a player, you need to be wary about what you disclose. You may not think there’s any harm in sharing your name and where you live, but cybercriminals can piece these details together and potentially gain access to your account. Therefore, keep your wits about you when playing and you should have a good experience.
 
Install Anti-Malware Software

No matter how careful you are when online gaming, all it takes is to click a dodgy link and find your device has been infected with malware. To stop malware from destroying your computer and stealing private information, it’s recommended to install anti-malware software. This will add an extra layer of protection to your online gaming.

When playing online games, you’ll want to know your money is safe and secure. To do just that, all the tips above can help keep you protected.

SENTIMENTAL JUNK: NEW LP FROM GUITARIST TOM GUERRA!


“Sentimental Junk” is the fifth solo album from songwriter/guitarist Tom Guerra, and it marks its debut on the indie label Thin Man Music on March 22, 2022. 

Prior releases include 2020's “Sudden Signs of Grace," ”American Garden” (2018), "Trampling Out the Vintage” (2016), and “All of the Above”  (2014). 
 
According to Guerra “this is a back to the roots thing for me...my last album featured a lot of acoustic tunes but this record reflects my renewed love affair with the electric guitar and the pent-up energy that being in lockdown for two years brings.” 
 
The first single off the album, “California’s Got to My Girl” is an R&B-based vocal duet with legendary Boston musician Jon Butcher. Recalling the golden era of Seventies soul, the track is already getting regional airplay. 
 
Said the Grammy-nominated Butcher, "As someone lucky enough to have rubbed shoulders with some of the finest players in the world, I am proud to call Tom Guerra a friend and fellow brother-in-arms. I highly recommend "Sentimental Junk" as a must-hear for anyone digging on guitar music... Like me!" 
 
In addition to the ten new original songs contained on "Sentimental Junk,” the record features a cover of “Clean Cut Kid,” a 1983 Bob Dylan song. Said Guerra “I loved Dylan’s ‘Clean Cut Kid’ though I was curious to see how it might fare with a   harder, straight-ahead rock and roll arrangement.” 
 
Longtime collaborator Kenny Aaronson (Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Billy Idol, The Yardbirds, etc.) not only contributes bass to this effort but also arranged the horns and strings on two of the songs. 

According to Aaronson, "Tom is a great songwriter. He has great pop sensibilities, and I really like his way of crafting a melody. He is a sensitive and keen observer of the human condition as one will hear in his lyrics." 
 
Several tracks on the new album are harder-edged, guitar-based rock and roll numbers, and "Eyes of the World," Guerra’s tribute to Leslie West, features a reunion with his longtime Mambo Sons bandmate, singer Scott Lawson Pomeroy. 
 
Other tracks, including “Think for Yourself,” “A Song for Mark Easton” (written about Tom's bandmate who died of Covid-19), and the aforementioned “California’s Got to My Girl” have strong roots in blues and R&B. 

Recorded two years into the Covid-19 pandemic, Guerra (former Mambo Sons guitarist and Vintage Guitar Magazine writer) says that he finds writing therapeutic. “Being stuck inside for a couple years made us all a little restless, and I think that energy comes across on this record. It’s a good feeling to write, and people need music, especially during times like these.”
