party at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Mahoney will have a “Never
Hide’ photo spread and article in Rolling Stone's November 14 issue.
Stay/Leave reflects the Minneapolis singer/songwriter's commitment
to his craft and growth as a musician. Evident through the honest
and pensive lyrics, Mahoney's latest CD, released in February 2007,
reaches a deeper poetic level than his previous recordings. While
prior Mahoney albums feature his driving grooves, Stay/Leave marks
a change for the songwriter. Combining a catchy pop/rock sound, bittersweet
lyrics and a comfortably raspy voice, Minnesota raised Tim Mahoney
etches himself as a mainstay in the Midwest music scene. His 150 shows
per year and extensive travels clearly reflect his commitment to music,
performance, and his fans.

set out in a VW bus on his musical journey back in the hazy 60s. He's
been traveling that road ever since, performing thousands of shows
and meeting millions of faces. In the process, his music, like his
rich, melodic guitar work and vocals, has deepened with life experiences
along the way. A prolific songwriter for decades, Belloise, encouraged
by his peers and audiences, decided to release his debut album in
February 2008 entitled "Nothing But Love". His music has received

as Big Joe Turner, Joe Houston, Delaney Bramlett, and Paul Butterfield.

Electric Prunes hails TJ as one of the hardest grooving guitarists
and great songwriters he knows. "Anytime you listen to his originals
you hear them showcase T.J.s rich, powerful voice, and a tasty palette
of guitar sounds - Gibson acoustics, Dobro Duolian slide sounds, the
T-bone of the Gibson 175, the chunky hot sauce of the Telecaster and
the bright sting of the King Bee Jazzmaster."

with an inspirational message akin to CCM cross-over act Switchfoot.

it comes from," says Derick. STRIVE has toured extensively in

gig we had was for 1,500 orphan kids in a city near Moscow. The looks
