April 3, 2017 - The polls have closed for ROCKWIRED.COM's recent ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign. Voters from all over the North America  made their vote count and DEREK DAVIS is ROCKWIRED.COM's 76th ARTIST OF THE MONTH. Everyone wants drama in their rock n roll! That's natural. The story of a quick ascent, a record label signing and hopefully a hit song has to result in a fall because that's the way gravity works. BABYLON A.D. was a band that was signed to ARISTA (the late WHITNEY HOUSTON'S label) and had a bit of a hit with the single THE KID GOES WILD which was featured in the 1990 film ROBOCOP 2 and enjoyed heavy rotation on hard rock stations at the time. But one needs to remember that this was the late-eighties/early-nineties and grunge was just around the corner and the bombast of metal (or what some would call "hair metal") would soon be on the retreat. As would BABYLON A.D. But that didn't stop the band's charismatic front man DEREK DAVIS and in the long run time away form music helped BABYLON A.D. Not many bands from the past re-emerge with the original lineup intact. No drama here. Just music. And music is what is clearly what is first and foremost on the mind of DEREK DAVIS on his latest solo album REVOLUTIONARY SOUL which proves to be a significant departure from the sound created by BABYLON A.D. This time around DAVIS  kicks out a different kind of jam with a  full on R&B sound with touches of funk and hard rock. BABYLON A.D. may scratch their heads at first but this amazing set of songs (all produced and played by DAVIS himself)  will no doubt find a home on their i-pod shuffles.

Other nominees for ARTIST OF THE MONTH included MAYVE, MARK REITENGA, RACE TO NEPTUNE, JASON ANDREW BROWN, DAPHNE WILLIS and THE TALKING HOURS.


ROCKWIRED.COM will be launching its latest ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign on April 3, 2017. The nominees include A WAR WITHIN, BLAMSHIFT, A LITTLE IT MORE, REMADA, DOCFELL & CO, RAMA DUKE & CHINO XL and KRISTI LANE SINCLAIR .
