While James Brown gave up the mantle of The Hardest Working Man in Show Business long ago (rest his soul), it seems that Valley performer Paisley Yankolovich is eager to be in the running for the title. One visit to his Web site and you'll see it riddled with show dates and appearances for nearly every evening. Plus, this year saw the release of the audio works Burn in Hell and Love Me Forever.
While Yankolovichs perspective is Christian-based, his music is nothing near what you'd hear in the halls of the Trinity Broadcast Network. Rather, Yankolovich delves deep into his personal life to bring to light stories of personal redemption and weathering rejection, even from those claiming the same beliefs. With a showman's stage presence, Yankolovichs Rocky Horror-style calls out to the masses, mainstream and outcasts alike, with a message of acceptance and love beyond mere tolerance.
