David Rosenblad releases second single of new LP series 'Antique Rose'



The singer-songwriter and composer for film known as David Rosenblad has released his latest single, “Antique Rose.” The piece represents the title track and second single from Rosenblad's ongoing LP series of releases, “Antique Rose,” which began with his recent popular song, “Awakening Through Serendipity.” Both have been proudly published on his own Thirteenth Moon Studio independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry.

David Rosenblad cites some of his artistic influences as the Beatles, Peter Gabriel, Miles Davis, Coldplay, and John McLaughlin (Mahavishnu Orchestra), as well as composers Erik Satie and Karlheinz Stockhausen. While his own repertoire is too varied across styles and categories for a round summation, it serves to note that Rosenblad is an accomplished songwriter in areas including pop, rock, singer-songwriter music, and background scores for film and screen.

Additionally, music by David Rosenblad tends to share common thematic threads.

“A purpose in all of my music,” Rosenblad writes, “is to raise the vibrations of the listener, connecting them to themselves, so they may realize who they are through all shadow and light.”

Asked to comment on the specific topical inspirations for this latest entry in his ongoing musical series, Rosenblad writes:

Roses, astrological aspects, past lives and more are rolled into this love ballad.

“If I have ever been incapable of expressing my true love for you in ways that make you happy, then I hope this song does. It is every layer of my being peeled away, leaving nothing but that love, the essence of what we are, through every word and note” (1 May 2018). The song is dedicated to Jean van Zyl.

Austin's David Rosenblad is a music producer, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, sound designer and composer for film and TV, as well as a music (and yoga) teacher. He is the owner and operator of both DRM:Sir Reel Sound and Thirteenth Moon Studio.

Rosenblad has collaborated or worked with such prominent artists as Sara Hickman, Chrysta Bell, David Newman, Dave Stringer, Blue Spirit Wheel, Herbie Mann, Everclear, Cheap Trick, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bad Company, and scores of others.

Besides traditional performances at concerts and parties, David Rosenblad also often performs at Unity churches and spiritual centers, as well as performing electro-acoustic interactive music for yoga and sound healing events. He has been a featured artist at Austin’s International Day of Yoga for several years, and will be playing guitar as part of a massive production of the Bernstein Mass summer 2018 as part of a worldwide celebration of Leonard Bernstein at 100.

The “Antique Rose” single and ongoing series are available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

Singer Precious Divinity releases single 'Squishy'



The singer and songwriter known as Precious Divinity has released her latest official single, “Squishy.” The track has been proudly published on her own Precious Divinity Music independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. A proud, unabashed pop track sure to attract fans of dance music everywhere, “Squishy” stands to announce the arrival of Precious Divinity to the global stage in the 21st century.

Asked to list some artistic influences, Precious Divinity cites Prince, Hall & Oates, and Al B. Sure! of "I Love It (Papi Aye, Aye, Aye)" fame. Her own sound will appeal to fans of artists such as (but not limited to) P!nk, Beyonce, and Britney Spears.

“Squishy” has been released on the heels of another popular Precious Divinity single, “Let Your Body Groove,” which dropped 14 April. It, also, is available online worldwide.

A veteran of music making, Precious Divinity has been writing original songs since the age of 13.

“I knew I had a talent to write poems as early as kindergarten,” writes Precious Divinity. “I always tried to guess the rhyming words to songs in the car when I was young.”

Divinity goes on to relate that she was originally inspired to switch from writing poems to writing songs after listening to Prince's first two albums. Later in life, she began to hear actual music, as she puts it, and following many years of study on the piano (including but not limited to Westmoreland Suzuki School of Music) she would go on to produce her own music tracks.

By 18 she had been signed to Nevada Recording Studios, a professional relationship which would not bear fruit. It was the genesis of a long career in recording and performance in studios, onstage, and in front of live cameras which took her from her native Chicago to Los Angeles, to New York City, to Texas, to Pittsburgh … the list of locales goes on and on. Nevertheless, a fair recording contract was never to be signed. Today Precious Divinity releases “Squishy” independent of any corporate entity.

“I've had a lot of help from talented music producers in the past,” say Divinity, “but I have written all my own lyrics. Most of the time I hear the melody.”

She's not letting go of the overall theme of her new song, though. Asked to divulge, she only says, “It's a secret.

Fans need not worry, however, because music from Precious Divinity is sure to keep coming. After all, she now acts as producer on her own music releases.

“I'll always write; that's what I do,” Precious Divinity says. “This gift from God has been as much of a blessing as a curse. To create and not be heard is stifling my soul.”

Musician David London once wrote of Precious Divinity, “If it is part of the plan of the Universal Intelligence that guides us, she will realize her dreams.”

“Squishy” by Precious Divinity is available from over 600 quality music stores online worldwide now.

Rappers SB & B Don release album '2 Kings on a Throne'



The writers, performers and producers of hip hop known as SB and B Don have released their debut LP album, “2 Kings on a Throne.” The LP album contains 10 original SB and B Don tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Grand Legacy Music Group independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Aggressive, genuine, and based on old-school elements while bringing something unique into the 21st century, “2 Kings on a Throne” is a rap album likely to put SB and B Don on the mainstream's radar for fans around the world.

SB and B Don cite as main artistic influences Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, Young Thug, Chief Keef, Juelz Santana, Chris Brown, A$ap Rocky, Drake, and Jay Z. Their own sound puts an emphasis on solid beats and lyric gymnastics, narrating true-to-life stories with a brand of urban poetry that is all their own. While their focus rests on the lines and rhymes, however, the production value of “2 Kings on a Throne” still rates higher than more minimalist records, something SB and B Don insist upon.

“Always have good speakers when you listen to us,” laughs SB.

“2 Kings on a Throne” is by no means the only release from the two artists. Between them, B Don and SB, now known as Ace Aydan, have over 20 published original tracks available online today.

Asked to describe the general themes of “2 Kings on a Throne,” the artists have no problem answering.

SB writes that their new album says, among other things, “Do your own thing, speak things into existence, have fun as much as you possibly can, know yourself, gather yourself with a good team of people, know your past and know what you want. Be yourself.”

B Don sums it up by saying, “Our album shares a positive message and it lets the people know that you can turn your struggles into motivation.”

“2 Kings on a Throne” by SB and B Don is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now.

The singer and songwriter from Australia known internationally as Paula Punch has released her latest official single, “Departure Lounge.” Like the rest of the singer's repertoire, “Departure Lounge” has been proudly published on the Punch Park independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. An alternative rock song with a devil-may-care attitude and plenty of groove, “Departure Lounge” is the latest reason for fans of singer-songwriter music to get acquainted with Sydney's Paula Punch.

Paula Punch makes music with genuine heart. Bearing themes of life, love, courage and independence, Paula Punch's latest material has echoes of the legendary Lilith Fair performers of the late nineties.

Punch, herself, has cited as main artistic influences Ed Kuepper, Joni Mitchell, the Seekers, the Band, Bob Dylan, and LP. Her own sound varies from release to release, but can be likened to Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge and Sarah McLachlan. Her upcoming debut full-length album release is expected to encompass the bulk of her official releases from 2017 onward, a collezione which will anchor her in the Australian indie scene for the forseeable future.

Asked to describe the overall message of her new, “Departure Lounge” single, Paula Punch says, “Living life to the full!”

Paula Punch began her music career in earnest in 2017 and wasted no time in achieving Fifth Place in the ASA Songwriting Competition for her single, “Take Me Back.” Her music is studio produced by Rob Gist (guitarist, Girl Overboard). Her musical creativity spun from her creation of Punch Park, which has been described as “a website dedicated to expressing her creativity through fashion, music and art, and sharing her stories by recording and performing her own songs.”

“This new song is a statement about life,” Punch says with characteristic vivacity. “We are not here for long. We better make sure we make the most of every minute. It's about being fearless!”

“Departure Lounge” by Paula Punch is available online worldwide from over 600 quality music stores now. Get in early, singer-songwriter fans.

French EDM artist DP releases new album '(Psy)Trance Vol.1'



The composer and producer of EDM known as DP has released his latest full-length album, “(Psy)Trance Vol.1.” The LP record contains 13 original DP tracks for an approximate total listening time of over 100 minutes. Like the rest of DP's ever-growing repertoire, “(Psy)Trance Vol.1” has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Varied, upbeat, high-energy and high-impact, “(Psy)Trance Vol.1” is the latest reason for fans of the EDM sound to experience this unstoppable DJ from France.

DP (formerly known as DJ Pad) has been producing and composing digital music since 2008 at the age of 20. Classically trained in music theory and an accordion virtuoso, DP is renowned as one of the 21st century's most prolific EDM artists with more than 800 original tracks available for sampling and download today.

DP often cites as main artistic influences Afrojack, Sebastian, Swedish House Mafia, Infected Mushrooms, Psycraft, Hallucinogen, ATB, Cosmic Gate, Atomic Cat, Tiesto, Angerfist, Hanz Zimmer, and Mike Oldfield. His inspirations for “(Psy)Trance Vol.1” are somewhat different, however.

“This album oscillates between old-school trance (the famous Trance 138 of the 2000s) and ultra-modern psytrance (so-called "full on" music)” he explains.

Psytrance has been described as a subgenre of trance music characterized by arrangements of synthetic rhythms and layered melodies created by high-tempo riffs. Psytrance has many subgenres belonging to it, including full on, darkpsy, hi-tech, progressive, suomi, psy-chill, psycore, psybient, and psybreaks. Psytrance is an evolution from goa trance music.

The full-on category DP mentions has been particularly popular in Israel. It is categorized as having melodic, energetic and crisp bass lines with a high bpm in the 140 to 148 range. Full-on has its own varieties, including twilight and night (or dark) full-on, morning full-on, and the forest subcategory.

Preceding “(Psy)Trance Vol.1,” DP's albums include “Waiting to Be Discovered,” “Dubstep: First Strike,” “Dubstep: Second Strike,” “House Vol. 1,” “A Trip in My House Vols. I and II,” “Y,” “The Hymn of Brotherhood,” “Welcome Aboard,” “Psyko Pad,” and “Let's Bounce,” though this list will almost certainly be longer at the time of reading.

“(Psy)Trance Vol.1” by DP is available from over 600 quality online music stores worldwide now.

Gangsta rapper Dr. Noxx releases new LP 'The Public Enemy'



The rapper and producer of gangsta rap known as Dr. Noxx has released his latest LP album, “The Public Enemy.” The gigantic record contains 20 original Dr. Noxx tracks for an approximate total listening time of over an hour. It has been proudly published on the Bloody Corp Inc. independent music label without the support or involvement of the corporate music industry. Based on old-school foundations of hip hop but bringing its own cutting edge of stylistic nuance into the new millennium, “The Public Enemy” by Dr. Noxx is a record fans of the gangsta sound everywhere will want a piece of.

Dr. Noxx cites as main artistic influences several of the titanic legends and masterminds of the genre, including Public Enemy, MC Ren, Ice T, and Boogie Down Productions (which included KRS-One, D-Nice and DJ Scott La Rock among others later). His own sound will almost certainly appeal to fans of the old school, his beats coming largely from the 808s and 909s tradition, and his lines landing mostly on the beats as was standard for more than twenty years.

Additionally, Dr. Noxx's lyric prowess extends beyond English alone into French, making him one of few artists to publish a full-length rap album for the French language in 2018 so far.

Asked to discuss the overall themes and meanings of his songs on “The Public Enemy,” Dr. Noxx writes, “My album is about all social problems, problems such as drugs, racism, police brutality, crime, sex, religious wars, and much more.”

Dr. Noxx's sound is intentionally based on the '80s and early '90s feel of gangsta rap. His instrumentation is taken from analog as much as possible, and the result is an album which will appeal to a broad variety of hip hop's fans.

A veteran of the sound, Dr. Noxx says, “Since 1998, I worked as a producer. I started with music as was done in the 1980s with samplers and a rhythm box, and I played keyboards.”

Naturally, the music comes out with that original groove because Noxx has made it this way out of love for the original hip hop quality which spawned a movement forty years ago.

“I think the old school should come back and replace the mainstream,” he says.

“The Public Enemy” by Dr. Noxx is available from over 600 digital music stores online worldwide now.

Singer Chantal releases debut album 'Scars'



The singer and songwriter known as Chantal has released her debut album, “Scars.” The album contains 13 tracks for an approximate total listening time of one hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement or financial support of the corporate music industry.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Chantal writes, “I studied classical music, but I love listening to everything from opera to symphonic metal. It just depends on my mood. I loved the '80s bands but have probably been most influenced by Tori Amos, Evanescence, Within Temptation and Kate Bush.”

Commenting on the general themes of her record, Chantal writes, “Every song comes from a deeply personal place, and the creation of the album is about the scars we all have and share in one form or another, whether internal or external, physical or emotional, that encompass our human condition.”

The title song of Chantal’s “Scars” was written just after the city of Knysna, South Africa, experienced catastrophic fires in 2017. The media covered the fires until the story no longer generated attention, but the victims of the incident remained. Chantal's concern for those affected inspired the title track.

“The song, itself,” she writes, “speaks to the scars we all carry. Some are shared, others are highly personal, but we all put on a smile and carry on because life goes on. I think this song was a way of reminding myself that I don’t always know what others have been through. And even if all I see is a scar, that doesn’t mean the pain is gone. It doesn’t take the experience away.”

In this way, Chantal's record is a message of encouragement, compassion and humanity.

“We can never underrate kindness,” she says. “I was very moved by the kindness of people from so many different spheres who stepped in after the fire to assist in the crisis. Scars tell us that something has happened here, and not all scars are visible. Kindness places wisdom over ego; it reminds us to be human.”

Chantal has been singing in choirs since a very young age. Her piano playing began at age 10. A veteran musician today, she has been creating original music since 1997. She has performed and recorded with several bands, but “Scars” represents the launch of her solo career. She has said that her songs “are essentially a personal diary of feelings, emotions, reflections and questions.”

“Scars,” the official debut album of Chantal, is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early.
