A.V.A Live Radio Behind The Music
I’m Jacqueline Jax, producer and host of A.V.A Live Radio, “The Voice of the New Music Generation.” www.AvALiveRadio.com
is an indie radio station solely dedicated to helping the struggling independent artists in a new and innovative way. Our station not only provides new artists with a platform to tell their story, we get their music heard by finding just the right people to get the music in front of. From movies to management, we don’t only play the best independent artists from around the world, we are working hard behind the scenes to get their music heard by industry professionals who are already searching for movie sound tracks, indie artist tours, commercials, events, and recording contracts. In addition, A.V.A Live Radio also provides a mentoring program where artists give back to other artists, educational resources on the music industry as well as personal and business branding from industry professionals in our community to those who need help thru our Game Changers Series interviews. We are committed to staying a 100% Commercial FREE Radio station, free from censorship just like the independent artists we support.
Something that you may not be aware of is our mentoring program that happens behind the scenes. Every artist who submits music for airplay is reviewed and evaluated by knowledgeable music industry professionals for recording quality, vocal ability and creative originality. If an artist isn’t ready to go live, we provide them with an experienced mentor to help them with guidance. The amazing people who mentor for A.V.A Live Radio are all talented artists and music industry professionals happy to give back to our music community because they believe in our vision and know how important this step is to a new artist.
Artists need encouragement, knowledge, experience, and a place to grow. A place with no boundaries, no limitations, a place where they feel comfortable being themselves. As an artist myself, I have looked to surround myself with supportive people and consider myself very lucky to be a part if this amazing community that has gathered around the A.V.A. As the host of this amazing show, I have had the ability to see first hand what this station has brought to new artists over the three years we have been working towards this vision and I know that we make a difference in people’s lives and I believe that this station has the capabilities to help people all over the world on levels of education, inspiration, creativity, culture, and community. I am so excited to see you all become a part of our A.V.A Live Radio Team.

Up Close and Personal with Ed Concepcion
- I originally moved to South Florida to be an airplane mechanic but quit school to play music.
- I used to be a worship leader for a program in the Salvation Army and turned worship into metal.
- I didn’t start singing until I moved to Florida at 25 years old.
Personal note from Artist:
It all started for me when I was 14 and I asked my dad for a saxophone. Now there is a sexy instrument. My dad was too cheap so he bought me a clarinet. Nothing sexy about that! Me? On a woodwind? Never! So I did what any manipulative 14 year old boy with divorced parents would do. I asked my mom for a guitar and this started a life-long passion for writing and playing music. I was always into the heavier side of everything listening to bands like Iron Maiden, Slayer, Anthrax, and OverKill. My admiration for bands like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd came much later in life. I grew up on the Jersey shore playing in various projects as a rhythm guitarist. I moved to South Florida in 1993 and met guitarist Eric Wright. That’s when things started really taking off and I realized my potential as a lead singer and song writer. Eric had a lot of music written and needed lyrics and vocal melodies. They flowed out of me like wine and Shattered Reality was formed. The first time we hit the stage was 1 year later at a battle of the bands at the Plus Five in Fort Lauderdale. We chose to go all original. We slaughtered the competition! When we got off stage, strangers asked us to sign their tickets because they thought we were going to be famous quickly. Sadly that was not the case. We dominated the local metal scene and broke up 2 years later. I played in various projects over the next 3 years writing music the whole time but never sharing it with the bands I was in because there was nothing serious. Then I met guitarist Steve Mirable who had amazing abilities but could not write. With my song writing and his shredding we formed Warfare but when auditioning bass players, we could not find a committed one. So, after much frustration, I became a bass player. Then we found Roman Vohsalik, who was exactly the drummer we were looking for, and we were now Warfare the power trio, sounding like a cross between Iron Maiden, Metalica, Rush, and Kiss. Once again, we hit the stage a year later with all originals, and blew the crowd away with our originality, stage presence, and tightness. I believe that music should be done right. A true depiction of the artist/songwriter’s heart conveyed through the instruments of others. That’s why I took a year from the formation to the unveiling of each serious project, especially when I’m writing the music. Warfare recorded a 9 song LP in 2001 and broke up at the end of 2002. I continued to play the local South Florida scene in various bands and projects until 2009 when I decided to go completely solo due to lack of dedication of others and the heartbreak associated with the breakup of a band. I concentrated my solo career in Broward County playing places like, Kahunas, American Rock, Cheers, Crabby Jack’s, and numerous gigs in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami/Dade area. I moved from Deerfield Beach to Delray Beach in 2012 were I continue to write and play cutting edge, original music.
Regards, Ed Concepcion
