Named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s), acoustic-duo Ryanhood have performed more than 800 shows in 42 U.S. states over the past decade. They’ve shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train, Lifehouse, and even been tweeted about by Ellen DeGeneres.
Ryanhood began as humble street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market, when they were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene. Campus Activities Magazine would soon name them “one of the most requested acts by college buyers all across the country.”
Their airtight vocal harmonies, along with Ryan’s rapidly precise guitar riffs and Cameron’s soulfully rich lead vocals, create the pleasantly distinguishable “Ryanhood” sound.
They have since relocated back to their hometown of Tucson, AZ, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band” (you can decide for yourself which is most accurate).

As Somerville develops, many people are being displaced because they lack economic stability. Local jobs can help people afford to live in Somerville and take advantage of new development.

October’s Design Museum Morning will feature Ilya Vedrashko, SVP Consumer & Business Intelligence at Hill Holliday , a full-service advertising agency in Downtown Boston. Ilya leads a team of data scientists, behavioral economists, consumer psychologists, and cultural anthropologists who build models, conduct field studies, crunch data, and solve mysteries.
The group’s input consists of data, but the output are mental models — explanations about how something works in the real world. Mental models guide actions: you will navigate your boat differently if you think the world is flat and rests on a giant turtle.
One mental model that’s been guiding the work of marketers for over a century has been an explanation of how people buy things. During this month’s Design Museum Morning, we will take a closer look at consumption with the help of four iron vessels, a tooth fairy, and old-fashioned lust.
Bonus: Leave your Twitter handle and LinkedIn URL in the Eventbrite page for our network analysis, to be debuted on October 24 at the event!

MURALI CORYELL's RESTLESS MIND showcases an an artist ever seeking, ever growing -- an artist at the top of his game. "I' feel I'll never be free/Till I can be just who I am/I've got a Restless Mind/Can't be satisfied/Won't you try to understand?" (from the title cut, "Restless Mind")...
"Yes, Murali Coryell is Larry's kid. But to leave it at that would be doing a disservice to the son. He's a fine player who doesn't play jazz, but a blues-soul hybrid that suits his playing and his gravelly, soulful singing to a T...soul music with Coryell's twist that's allowed to expand even as the song is being played. No doubt dad is proud of his kid and the path he's chosen." (John Heidt/Vintage Guitar)
"Murali - which translates from Sanskrit to `divine flute' - sounds like his own man - someone who has taken far more from Carlos Santana, Otis Redding...and Hendrix than he ever did from Miles, Dizzy or Dad. He mixes and matches like an enthusiastic chef, and stirs it up just as much." (Nick DeRiso/Something Else! Reviews)
Shake-It-Sugar Records is proud to announce the release of singer/guitarist/songwriter MURALI CORYELL's RESTLESS MIND on August 19, 2014.
Coryell's first studio recording since his acclaimed 2009 release Sugar Lips, RESTLESS MIND was produced by Murali Coryell and recorded at Mesa Recording Studios in Austin, TX. RESTLESS MIND features 11 Coryell originals plus a funked up re-imagining of the Marvin Gaye classic "Let's Get It On", a song Coryell's performed live for the past 20 years. Joining Coryell (guitars/vocals) in the studio are Ernie Durawa (drums), Chris Alcaraz (bass), Joe Morales (saxophone) and Jimmy Shortell (trumpet).
Son of jazz-rock fusion guitar legend Larry Coryell and author/actress Julie Coryell, contemporary soul blues artist Murali Coryell grew up surrounded by great music - by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Carlos Santana. Murali began playing drums at age 8 and continued through junior high school. He started playing guitar after discovering the blues in his early teens. "I was into the music of Led Zeppelin, particularly a minor blues tune called 'Since I've Been Loving You'. My dad told me if I wanted to hear some REAL blues to get B.B. King's 'Live At The Regal' which to this day, I consider one of the greatest recordings ever made. The emotion and sadness in B.B. King's voice and guitar really spoke to me. That's When I first picked up a guitar." He took lessons for a while but picked up most of what he learned from listening to the music of other blues guitar greats...besides B.B., from early Clapton, Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix and Albert King.
The big turning point in Murali's musical career came at age 15 when he attended the National Guitar Summer Workshop in Connecticut. "For the first time in my life I got serious about my music. I started playing all the time. I got into jazz." He joined a jazz ensemble at college, studied classical guitar and graduated with a degree in music theory and composition. He founded a soul/blues band, The Ambassadors, in upstate New York in the late '80s. The band quickly became a regional favorite in New York's Hudson Valley area. In the summer of '94, while a faculty member at the Guitar Workshop, Murali met Duke Robillard who was teaching a master class. "Robillard heard me sing at a concert and asked to sit in with my band. He called me a month later and hired me as second guitarist for his upcoming world tour. He featured me on a couple of vocal tunes, Ray Charles' 'I Got A Woman' and Albert King's 'The Hunter'". Soon after, Murali was signed by the fledgling Big Mo Records label as a solo artist resulting in his Stax/Volt influenced debut CD, Eyes Wide Open In 1999 Murali recorded 2120 for Marshall Chess' CZYZ label. Rolling Stone magazine named Murali "One promising new hound". Since that time he's released several albums including 2003's Strong As I Need To Be, 2005's The Future Of Blues, the solo acoustic album Don't Blame It On Me in 2007, 2008's The Same Damn Thing and 2009's Sugar Lips as well as a collaboration with his father Larry and brother Julian The Coryells (2000/Chesky Records). Murali's 2013 CD/DVD LIVE was nominated for a 2014 BMA for "DVD of the Year". In November 2013, Murali Coryell was inducted in the NY State Blues Hall Of Fame.
In additon to performing with his own group, Murali has toured as a featured artist with award winning bluesman Joe Louis Walker and his father, jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell.

Ultimately, the most important question is: Should you be sleeping soundly at night?

Course: Transforming Staff into a TEAM. Effective Patient Communication of Dental Implants & Digital Technology - 2 AGD Credits
3D digital technology for the planning, placement, and restoration of dental implants has never been more predictable and exciting. The dental TEAM can be the most untapped resource in a dental practice. How often has the dentist made a dental implant therapy recommendation to a patient only for that patient to then turn to the hygienist, dental assistant, or front desk and ask them: “What do you think?” An impactful, educated consistent answer to that question by all the members of the TEAM can dramatically impact case acceptance for optimal treatment for missing teeth, and practice growth. To maximize this significant practice growth opportunity for the dental practice, it is imperative for the entire dental TEAM to consistently demonstrate proficient, consultative knowledge of dental implants and the digital workflow.
Staff members learn to become a confident, positive TEAM in their practice through a combination of presentation, hands-on, and interactive discussion. In addition, course attendees will have an opportunity to practice their newly acquired knowledge individually, and in small groups, and receive coaching and feedback before returning to the office to actually apply their new knowledge and skills with their patients and play an active role in reinventing and growing the dental practice.

Harvard Book Store welcomes international bestselling fiction author VIKRAM CHANDRA for a discussion of his nonfiction debut work, Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code, the Code of Beauty.
Vikram Chandra has been a computer programmer for almost as long as he has been a novelist. In this extraordinary new book, his first work of nonfiction, he searches for the connections between the worlds of art and technology. Coders are obsessed with elegance and style, just as writers are, but do the words mean the same thing to both? Can we ascribe beauty to the craft of writing code?
Exploring such varied topics as logic gates and literary modernism, the machismo of tech geeks, the omnipresence of an “Indian Mafia” in Silicon Valley, and the writings of the eleventh-century Kashmiri thinker Abhinavagupta, Geek Sublime is both an idiosyncratic history of coding and a fascinating meditation on the writer’s art. Part literary essay, part technology story, and part memoir, it is an engrossing, original, and heady book of sweeping ideas.
"An unexpected tour de force. . . . Its ambition: to look deeply, and with great subtlety, into the connections and tensions between the worlds—the cultures—of technology and art. The book becomes an exquisite meditation on aesthetics, and meanwhile it is also part memoir, the story of a young man finding his way from India to the West and back, and from literature to programming and back. . . . Programmers feel an exhilarating creative mastery, and Chandra captures it." —The New York Times Book Review
“Chandra, brainy, delving, and spellbinding, delineates the intricacy and beauty of code. . . . As [he] illuminates links between programming and literature in bedazzling elucidations of Sanskrit, linguistics, aesthetics, and Hindu, Tantric, and Buddhist beliefs, he also conducts unique and heady inquiries into codes, ethical as well as binary. Chandra’s creative and elegant meshing of thought and experience, conscience and storytelling nets both the profane and the sublime.” —Booklist

The Boston music scene has spawned so many great artists, it's hard to keep up, from flat-out rockers like Aerosmith and Morphine to thoughtful folkies such as Patty Griffin and Ellis Paul. That's where Catie Curtis comes in. With her instantly recognizable voice and insightful and often humorous lyrics, Curtis has steadily gained a sure footing among her peers. Curtis first garnered attention as she toured the house concert and coffeehouse circuit (circa the early '90s) to support her independently released disc, From Years to Hours, which followed the cassette-only release of Dandelion in 1989. Her young sound had echoes of Rickie Lee Jones and her songwriting revealed an innocent yet heartfelt poetry that would only get deeper and richer with more life experience. Hear Music took note and put out Truth from Lies in 1995. That offering got Curtis noticed over at EMI/Guardian, who, consequently, re-released the disc in 1996 and its successor, Catie Curtis in 1997. These albums showcased the evolution of the artist and songwriter, as she moved slowly away from her raw folk roots to a slightly more pop sound. The song "Soulfully," from Catie Curtis, was warmly embraced, and found its way to both radio and television with exposure on Dawson's Creek and Chicago Hope. Crash Course in RosesCurtis continued to build a fan base through extensive touring, even hopping on legs of the Lilith Fair tour. When her label closed its doors, she found another home at Rykodisc and sent A Crash Course in Roses into the world in 1999. This offering centered around the haunting theme of the impact of sudden events on life. After touring with Dar Williams for a spell, Curtis was inspired for the next project. So, for her 2001 effort, My Shirt Looks Good on You, she took a more collaborative approach to the songwriting and teamed up with a number of Boston's finest songwriters, including Billy Conway and Mary Gauthier. She also teamed up with hotshot producer/engineer Trina Shoemaker to redefine her sound while making the record. The result was another surefooted step forward for Curtis and a harbinger of more great things to come. Dreaming in Romance Languages, Curtis' first for Vanguard, appeared in 2004. Long Night Moon, much of which reflected on her life as the new mother of two adopted little girls, arrived in 2006, followed by the aptly titled Sweet Life in 2008.
