Rapper MONSTER Mayweather releases new EP 'Real Eyes Realize Real Lies'


The artist and producer of hip hop music known as MONSTER Mayweather has released his latest EP record, “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies.” The extended-play album contains six original tracks for an approximate listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published on the O'Third Mafia independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. A contemporary rap record emphasizing vocal gymnastics and urban poetry over big-production background effects, “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” is officially MONSTER's new flagship album.

MONSTER (Make Other N-ggas Start Trembling when Entering the Room) Mayweather may be the headlining act on “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies,” but he's not the only talent here. His new EP also features the skills of artists such as Zilla, J-Ova, BossMan, TC Gambino, and Supa King Big Pope.

Asked to cite some main musical influences for his new record, MONSTER lists Tupac Shakur and Marvin Gaye, Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes, and the seminal historian and pioneer of Pan-African studies during the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. John Henrik Clarke. As might be gleaned from this roster, MONSTER's “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” is a record with plenty to say.

“This E.P. shares a story to its listeners that's simple, emotional, truthful, real, and valid,” writes MONSTER Mayweather. “I share my struggle and my sacrifices.”

Mayweather hails from the North side of Huntsville, AL, where he became embroiled in gang activity which earned him his nickname, MONSTER. His current official bio shows an awareness of sociology's Culture of Poverty theory, stating: “Transforming and ascending to new levels, MONSTER understands that a Wealthy mindset is better than a Broke mindset and wants his fans to grow with him as his music will grow.”

He strikes a similar note upon being asked to describe the overall theme of his “Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” EP.

“Just because you're being rerouted,” writes Mayweather, “doesn't mean you will not make it to your destiny.”

“Real Eyes Realize Real Lies” by MONSTER Mayweather is available online worldwide from over 700 quality digital music stores now.

RnB and hip-hop artist Chxxsy releases new single 'Day After'


The Swedish artist of R 'n' B and hip hop known as Chxxsy has released his latest official single, “Day After.” The track has been proudly published on the Heart Attack Music independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Mellow yet groovy, unique yet stylish, and dialed-in with all the pop frills for radio play anywhere in the world, “Day After” shows that Chxxsy is a name to watch in 2017 and beyond.

Asked to cite main artistic influences for his new track, Chxxsy (often stylized, 'chxxsy') first mentions classic '80s and '90s pop, then Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson by name, leaving for last modern artists such as Ty Dolla $ign and Travis $cott. His own sound on “Day After” is slick, spacious, and produced with a surgical precision – all of which brings the King of Pop to mind, but Chxxsy's “Day After” has a pronounced 2017 feel to it which is where his individuality shines through.

Asked to describe the overall theme and message of “Day After,” Chxxsy writes simply, “Chxxsy is the message.”

Chxxsy is the stage name of Ralph Charlie, who has been making his own brand of music since 2008. His crew, which have been dubbed the A-Team, work with him to produce popular music for the international music scene. Chxxsy and his A-Team have found particular success in Korea. Chxxsy has also written songs for the famous Russian musician, Sergey Lazarev, songs which achieved prominence on the Russian Billboard charts.

Chxxsy is revving up to release an official EP in coming months with a title and drop date to be announced. Fans are encouraged to sample his music at his official Soundcloud page [link provided below].

Rap artist Oblivion drops new twin singles release 'Fame and Struggles'


The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Oblivion has released his new single and B-side track collectively titled, “Fame and Struggles.” The tracks themselves are “Jump Rope” and “So Gone.” Both have been proudly published on the So Many Visions (S.M.V.) Promotions Records independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. True, gritty, and showcasing Oblivion's knack for making something new and unique from the mainstream hip-hop sound, “Fame and Struggles” stands as evidence that Oblivion has come into his own.

Selma, Alabama's Oblivion cites as main artistic influences Lil' Wayne, Drake, and Gucci Mane. Oblivion's own sound minimizes melody lines and utilizes plenty of space between beats, allowing his vocal phrases and lyric poetry to retain the spotlight. The result is an uncluttered style of hip hop which will attract fans of rap who appreciate wordplay over massive productions involving countless effects and tons of autotune. In other words, “Fame and Struggles” is a straight-up rap record.

Asked to describe the overall theme of his new album, Oblivion writes that it's about: “Life issues, how society sees you (stereotyping), relationships, women, flexing, turning up, making money, buying cars, houses, and jewelry.”

Oblivion is a 23-year-old man born and raised in Alabama, the third of four siblings. He has been crafting rap songs since the second grade. His older brother encouraged his music talent by promising to put him on a track if he kept up the good work. Informing his rap lyrics were difficulties at school including violence and trouble with authority figures.

“One day I decided to put all these bad experiences into my lyrics,” writes Oblivion, “to help me stay focused on the positive, not the negative things around me.”

The negative heaped on him regardless, though, with the unexpected passing of his beloved grandmother. Again, he turned to his music, but life wasn't through challenging him.

“Then my older brother passed away unexpectedly as well,” Oblivion says. “With all this going on in such a short time, I woke up one day and said, 'tomorrow is not promised to you so I need to do what needs to be done to make it happen.' I have put a lot of hard work into my music so I can make my grandmother, my brother, and my family proud.”

The upshot of this is “Fame and Struggles,” Oblivion's spearhead achievement. He makes it clear that these two singles will be the start of something much bigger.

“This is not just a dream for me,” says Oblivion. “I am going to make this a reality because my parents made so many sacrifices for their children to succeed in life, so failure is not an option. I am all-in, and I have my family behind me to make it happen.”

“Fame and Struggles” by Oblivion is available from S.M.V. Records at over 700 quality digital music retailers online worldwide now.

Asked to cite some major artistic influences, LouCii keeps it simple but makes it known he's a fan of the art in general.

“I appreciate any artist that makes music,” he writes.

His new single blends attributes from every popular EDM subgenre. Its tempo is a main attraction. “YouBaby” is a single for anyone looking for audio caffeine. Bursting with motivational beats and uplifting melodies, “You Baby” by LouCii is music to help anyone get going.

Hesohi releases fifth LP album 'Conversation'


The digital music artist known as Hesohi has released his fifth studio album, “Conversation.” The record contains six original Hesohi tracks and a bonus single for a total of an hour and fifteen minutes of listening. Five of these are available only with the entire record while tracks Two and Seven may be purchased as singles. The album has been proudly published on the LovethangBoomin'System independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. An eclectic, post-modern take on trip-hop blended with ambient and classical composition methods, “Conversation” proves that Hesohi is an artist for the new millennium.

Hesohi cites as main artistic influences Art of Noise, Cinematic Orchestra, Towa Tei, Avalanches, Todd Rundgren, Kraftwerk, the Late Night Tales Series, and All Good Funk Alliance. But he's not alone on “Conversation.” Joining Hesohi in the studio for his fifth full-length album are Douglas T. Martin, Derek Sibert, and Steve Fernandez.

Hesohi himself describes his new record as “downtempo,” but admits that “The first term that comes to mind is trip hop.”

“This music doesn’t contain the obligatory sample-based sounds that usually accompany the beats in this genre,” writes Hesohi. “The sound is synth-oriented, with live guitar and bass performances that sound like conversations between the instruments.”

This principle comes from classical music, where it is known as call-and-response, or antiphony. Also similar to classical composition forms is Hesohi's carrying of themes throughout tracks 10 and even 20 minutes long, as well as across the entire record – or as the artist himself puts it: “The idea of the 'track' is expanded and transformed into the idea of the 'composition,' in the way that one might paint a picture onto a large canvas and later paint a mural onto a wall.”

“Conversation” is digital music for the connoisseur of sounds. To steal a phrase from one of Hesohi's cited inspirations, Towa Tei, it is a sound museum.

Hesohi's label, LovethangBoomin'System, says of the record that “There is a feel of a producer exploring the sensibility of techno at a much slower pace, and without the constraint of fitting the end result into kind some kind of format. The songs take their time to get where they are going. The attention to detail provides dynamics that move the listener through the arrangement effortlessly. The time passes in a comfortable manner. The mix is lush but unquiet with a good amount of animation.”

Speaking to his fans, friends and cohorts, Hesohi writes:

“Thanks to the people who have introduced me to so many beautiful songs. I am forever on a quest to listen and learn about the world and it's inhabitants through culture and express myself with music. Thanks to the artists who inspire and energize my spirit. Thanks for the Family love and support. I appreciate very much the people of this planet. Partypeople, hold tight. We are gonna make it. Everything is gonna be alright. Stay positive. Spread love. Be kind to yourself.”

“Conversation” by Hesohi is available from LovethangBoomin'System online worldwide at over 700 quality digital music stores now.

Irish R&B singer Sarah O Gorman releases debut EP 'Concrete Rain'


The singer and songwriter of rhythm-and-blues known as Sarah O Gorman has released her debut EP album, “Concrete Rain.” The record contains four original tracks for a listening time of 17 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Blending elements of soul, R-'n'-B, and even folk music, “Concrete Rain” signals that Sarah O Gorman has plenty of evocative music to share with the world.

Carlow, Ireland's Sarah O Gorman cites as main artistic influences Tracy Chapman, Van Morrison, Nina Simone, Curtis Mayfield, and Joan Armatrading. Music fans will quickly note common threads running through this selection of legends, and as might be surmised, many of these threads lead to O Gorman, herself, and to her new record.

“It feels on a few levels like coming home,” says O Gorman of her debut album. “But that's the story of all human adventure, isn't it?”

This idea of a circuitous journey seems to lie at the heart of “Concrete Rain,” and appropriately also in the artistic process of its creator.

“Making 'Concrete Rain' happened very naturally,” O Gorman says. “I'd written the songs and had been playing them with a loop machine. Then, during a visit home, by happy accident David [Ayers, producer] and I arranged to go in the studio, initially for one day – which quickly turned into a week. I thought, wow, this is really beautiful. We found a flow.”

Sarah O Gorman's current official bio concludes with the statement, “Everything about how we made this EP reflects what I find beautiful in songwriting: the seeming anarchy but perfect fluency of the process.”

The story of human adventure, coming home, loops, perfect fluency – these themes describe the experience of hearing “Concrete Rain” very well, the title of which is also a circular kind of paradox. Sarah O Gorman's songs, studio performances and actual personality coalesce in a way that endears the listener to her as if a relationship were actually being formed. And why not?

Asked to describe the intended themes of her debut EP, O Gorman writes, “You are most beautiful, most real and vital when you stand on / come from your soul ground.”

Art like “Concrete Rain” is one of few ways to stand on and come from one's soul ground at the same time.

“Concrete Rain” by Sarah O Gorman and produced by Red Snapper founding member David Ayers is available beginning 11 June 2017 from over 700 quality digital music stores online worldwide. Get in early, soul fans. Very early.

Jazz-fusion artist Person Natalie releases LP 'Gypsy Dance'


The eclectic saxophonist and composer known as Person Natalie has released her latest full-length album, “Gypsy Dance.” The record contains eight original tracks for about 40 minutes of listening. It has been proudly published on the Person Natalie independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Blending elements of jazz, country, R 'n' B and even world music, “Gypsy Dance” may be one of the most stylistically inclusive jazz-fusion records ever recorded.

For her 2014 EP record, Person Natalie listed such artistic influences as Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Merle Haggard and Motown. For this new, flagship LP release, however, she cites only one: Miles Davis. This is both telling and appropriate of her album, considering the titanic bridges both records build between seemingly disparate music categories.

“This album is intended to be a cross-genre delight,” writes Person Natalie of her record. “It's definitely about enjoying the journey and the positive escape of music, and just letting it develop naturally.”

In addition to the considerable skills of Person Natalie, herself, “Gypsy Dance” also features the talents of players Kye Palmer, Aisha Ewell, and Ron Sanchez. It is her second self-produced album.

“It’s exciting to work with others and I feel very privileged and grateful, especially to David Lewis Luong [producer of her “Dreamy Lullaby” and “Deep as Ocean” releases],” she says. The decision to self-produce her “Gypsy Dance” LP with the aid of her father, a bassist, is a matter of creative expression.

“It feel it's most rewarding to produce on your own (though not easy)” writes Natalie, “when the party you’ve got going on in your head comes to life and translates onto a recording exactly how you intended it – and beyond, really.”

The intuitive sax performer has called “Gypsy Dance” her best studio work to date, but is also quick to reassure, “Oh, I have more up my sleeve,” hinting that her future projects may delve even further into realms outside jazz.

“I have a deep enjoyment of and respect for jazz and those that can play it, as the requirements are very
challenging and keep you thinking,” says Person Natalie, “but I feel more at home and down-to-earth, more relatable, with rock, country and R 'n' B.”

“Gypsy Dance” by Person Natalie becomes available online worldwide 9 June 2017. Get in early, jazz fans. Don't miss her official music video at her official website, link provided below.

DJ Paul Azizeh releases single 'The Dawn of Techno-Logik Records'


The DJ and turntablist known as Paul Azizeh has released his latest official single, “The Dawn of Techno-Logik Records.” While listed as a single, it is actually a bundle of three singles, “First Voyage,” “Lawrence” and “Let Go” with a combined listening time of 25 minutes. As might be presumed, they have been proudly published on the Techno-Logik Records independent music label outside the control of the corporate music industry. Blending old-school vinyl methods and sounds with cutting-edge digital tones and interplay, “The Dawn of Techno-Logik Records” is a release fans of EDM everywhere will want to sample.

Seattle's Paul Azizeh cites as main artistic influences Magnus, Christopher Lawrence, Wes Nesman tha Digital Dragon, and John 00 Fleming. His own sound is firmly based on the traditions and attention to melodies which made turntablism great in the 1980s and '90s, but adds to this his own spin on the post-dubstep electronic dance music scene. The result is an octane-charged groove which will appeal to house music fans from the original digital underground, party-goers of the first raves, and enthusiasts of today's popular EDM festivals altogether.

Azizeh's style is also informed by his own TL Sessions online radio show, a popular monthly program hosted by Azizeh which showcases guest DJs and producers from the United States and around the world.

Electro-goth musician Viii releases singles “Witchlust” and “Rev 22:20”


The music artist of gothic electronica known as Viii has released his second pair of singles for 2017, titled, “Witchlust / Rev 22:20.” The tracks have been proudly published on the Voodoo Creation Records independent music label, along with the rest of the Viii catalog. Bringing the dark, suave sound fans of Viii have come to expect in spades, “Witchlust / Rev 22:20” is the latest reason fans of goth and electronica have to sit up and take notice of this shadowy studio project in 2017.

Viii (pronounced 'Vee') cites as main artistic influences Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle) Crosses, Banks, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, Massive Attack, and Prince. In fact, the single's B-side, “Rev 22:20,” is a cover tune of an original track by Puscifer, headed by the legendary Maynard Keenan. This is the second such arrangment for Viii, whose recent “Lovedecay” single came bundled with a B-side cover of “Lovesong” by the Cure.

Asked to describe the themes of his latest single, “Witchlust,” Viii writes, “Witchlust is a song where the protagonist is seduced and manipulated by a girl, going against his morals and becoming a person he hates. After falling and committing to the relationship completely, he is then discarded and left unable to fully connect with future romantic partners – becoming as cold and heartless as the girl that transformed him was.”

The Puscifer cover, “Rev 22:20” makes an erotic play on the prominent Bible verse which begins, “I am coming quickly.” It moves from here to describe a sexual obsession with a beautiful woman who is damaging to the narrator, who implores the listener to refrain from falling under her spell. In this way, the track braids seamlessly with the situation described in “Witchlust.”

“Witchlust / Rev 22:20” by Viii becomes available 2 June 2017 from over 700 quality digital music stores online worldwide.

Rapper Lay Roo releases new EP 'Crazy Sooper Hero Dreams'


The hip hop artist known as Lay Roo has released his latest EP, “Crazy Sooper Hero Dreams.” The EP contains five original Lay Roo tracks for an approximate listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Lay Roo Entertainment independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Blending old-school groove with the infectiousness of pop and an uncommon warmth of character, “Crazy Sooper Hero Dreams” puts Lay Roo on the hip-hop map of 2017.

Lay Roo cites as main artistic influences Tupac Shakur, Kanye West, Prince, Pharrell, Michael Jackson, and Dr. Dre, as well as a variety of others as different as Nirvana, the Roots, and Beethoven.

Asked to comment on the themes of his new album, Lay Roo writes, “Have you ever watched a super-hero movie? It's usually an average boy/girl, a geek/underdog who starts realizing they have special powers or abilities. They go through a phase of freaking out, unsure of what is going on with them, not sure how to handle their newfound abilities … But each day, they keep pushing their abilities to find their true potential – and the moment they realize just what they are truly capable of, their whole world changes around them. They feel more in control, more complete and happier than ever before.”

Lay Roo sees the superhero in everyone. This is the message of his “Crazy Sooper Hero Dreams” EP, one which comes out loud and clear in his lyrics.

“We all have special abilities,” Roo says. “Yes, it's scary and tough trying something new, but we shouldn't be worried about what other people might say. Whatever drives you, whatever you believe in, whatever makes you happy, whatever passion you have, whatever gets you out of bed in the morning, whatever excites you – do that!”

Sharon Lia Band releases LP 'Fairytales'


The popular pop/rock ensemble known as the Sharon Lia Band have released their latest LP record, “Fairytales.” The record contains nine original Sharon Lia tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Sharrick Records independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Infectious, exciting, extremely danceable and often even touching, “Fairytales” by the Sharon Lia Band is a welcome addition to the Sharon Lia repertoire for music lovers everywhere.

Singer-songwriter Sharon Lia and her crew cite as main artistic influences Elton John, Broadway, and New Age Music. That there is a strong undercurrent of Elton John makes sense, therefore, and “Fairytales” thrums with powerful rock and pop ballads. However, the Sharon Lia Band have a group tradition of being entertainers, first and foremost, so much of their music is of the tapping feet and snapping fingers category, which is likely where their Broadway inspiration comes in.

Sharon Lia's vocal style has been likened to Christina Aguilera by Jersey Fresh Magazine, as well as to Amy Lee of Evanescence by Independent Share Radio. The New Jersey Times has called Lia a “powerhouse vocalist.”

Asked to comment on the themes of their new LP, Sharon Lia says it's about “Empowerment,” and “Fighting for what you believe in.”

This is intuitive, too, considering Lia's status as founder of Ladies Who Rock 4 a Cause, a female-led charity which has been described as “a foundation using the unifying power of music to help benefit others in need.”

Sharon Lia has worked with legendary producer David Ivory (Patti Labelle, the Roots, Halestorm) and with Stephen 'Eppy' Epstein (WAR). Sharon Lia is also co-writer of “Welcome to My World,” a brilliant song left unfinished by Linda Creed and Lonnie Jordan of WAR.

The Sharon Lia Band are currently launching a new video, “Fairytales (Now I Know)” containing scenes from their participation at Grammy week events and, in Lia's own words, “tells the story of a girl fighting against all odds to find a her own happy ending.”

A new official single under the masterful skills of famed producer David Ivory (Patti LaBelle, the Roots, Erykah Badu) is expected from SLB summer 2017.

The Sharon Lia Band will be heading to New Orleans for the largest and longest-running music conference to perform at several venues including the House of Blues August 23-26 2017. They will be at Nashville's Nissan Stadium 17 September for their nomination for the prestigious Josie Award.

“Fairytales” by the Sharon Lia Band is available online worldwide at over 700 quality digital music retailers now.

Singer-songwriter Lyric releases debut LP 'Hear It'


The singer and songwriter of R&B known as Lyric has released her debut LP album, “Hear It.” The record contains ten original tracks for an approximate total listening time of forty minutes. Like all of Lyric's evocative art, it has been proudly published on Bearze's World of Music Entertainment Network (W.O.M.E.N.) independent record label without the support of the corporate music industry. Founded on solid back beats and mellow bass lines, boasting catchy melodies, and showcasing the talents of one of Denver, CO's most ambitious creative minds, “Hear It” is an inspiration for lovers of contemporary R&B music everywhere.

Lyric cites as main influences a wide array of legends, including Aaliyah, Sade, Anita Baker, Whitney Houston, TLC, Alanis Morissette, Xscape, Mary Mary, CeCe Winans, Tupac Shakur, Ginuwine, Chaka Khan, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Al Green. India Arie, Madonna, Mariah Carey, T.I., Michael Bolton, and Yanni.

Clearly, this is the roster of a true music lover. Lyric's current official bio closes with an artistic principle: “As an artist you must enjoy all genres of music to reach out to the world through it as Lyric does.”

Asked to describe her relationship with music, Lyric writes, “Music for me became a way to not only express my emotions but to release the anger and sadness I was feeling, feelings of abandonment. Music was like my coping mechanism that helped me deal with my dad not being around and with my parent's divorce when I was only two years old.”

Like many of the best songwriters, Lyric took the pain of her experiences and transmuted it into something the rest of us can appreciate.

“The goal for my album is making its listeners feel good,” Lyric says, “and to be inspired by spreading uplifting messages they can relate to. It speaks about life, about things like hope, love, inspiration, hardships, faith, overcoming obstacles, and happiness.”

This results in “Hear It” being both easy to enjoy and intriguing as a humanist message. Lyric makes a point of this in her songwriting, and it shows.

“There's so much power in music that isn't realized by many who use it only to benefit themselves,” she writes. “They don't care about the message they're sending out. I'm going to change that through my music.”

“Hear It” by Lyric is available from over 700 digital music stores online worldwide now.

Until recently, Johnathan Christian were Johnathan Mooney (the New Creatures, New York City) and Christian Granquist (the Atom; Stockholm, Sweden). For their upcoming third full-length record, "Dark Hallways," they have been joined by drummer and producer Tiger Koehn (also of the New Creatures).

Johnathan Christian cite as influences for their new "One Last Night" single such legends of the death rock and gothic sound as Siouxsie & the Banshees, Joy Division, Blue for Two, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, and Christian Death. Fans of any or all of the above can expect much to appreciate in "One Last Night," and if it's any indication, in their forthcoming LP, too.

Johnathan Christian's previous two LPs racked up over 2.5 million streams and sales, easily making them one of the more popular gothic/alternative crews. Their consistent quality clutched the interest of Danish electro-industrial pioneer Leæther Strip (Claus Larsen) who lent his skill as producer to "One Last Night."

"It was really great for me to work on this fine new song," writes Leæther Strip. "'One last night' is one of those songs I wish I had composed myself. As a fellow songwriter, it's always a privilege to get to produce and mix a song that is so well composed and arranged."

"One Last Night" by Johnathan Christian and produced by Leæther Strip is available from over 700 quality music stores online worldwide now. Also watch for the "Dark Hallways" LP due out winter 2017. Get in early, fans of dark music everywhere. Very early.

Rapper Mister Guwop releases new EP 'King of the Bando'


The rapper and producer of hip hop has released his new EP record, “King of the Bando.” The EP album contains six original Mister Guwop tracks for a listening time of around 20 minutes. It has been proudly published on the 1300 Block Records independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. In addition to the considerable talents of Mister Guwop, “King of the Bando” features performances by Deshawn$antana and $ayyyAD. Unique, cutting-edge, and presenting one of the most intriguing hip-hop songwriters to appear in 2017, “King of the Bando” is evidence that Mister Guwop is a rap artist for the modern era.

Mister Guwop cites as main artistic influences Lil' Wayne, 2 Chains, G-Herbo, J Cole, and Kevin Gates. His own sound is more pared-down than this, showcasing skillful lyrical and rap performances more than synthesized background music or complicated digital beats, but fans of drum and bass will find plenty of both on “King of the Bando,” too.

Asked to describe the general themes of his new “King of the Bando” EP album, Mister Guwop writes, “It's that life shouldn't be taken for granted, and you should turn up some weed and have fun at all times.”

A lifelong music artist, Mister Guwop notes that, “I been writing my whole life, but when I met Gang, I knew we could make something nice.”

The Gang he refers to is GuWop Gang, with whom Mister Guwop released the “Juggin Like Ryan” full-length record early in 2016. This album was quickly followed by “Juggin Like Ryan 2.” Both releases are from the 1300 Block Records label and still available for listening online at YouTube and other online music resources.

“King of the Bando” by Mister Guwop is available from 1300 Block Records at over 700 quality music stores online worldwide now.

Jonnie Morgan Band have released their latest official single, “Walk Around the Sun.” The single is the title track from their awaited new LP record, “Walk Around the Sun.” It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Bouncy, poppy and founded on funk, “Walk Around the Sun” is only the latest reason for music fans to check out this endlessly fun crew from America's southeast.

Orlando, Florida's Jonnie Morgan and company cite as main artistic influences the Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson, and O.A.R. Other similar acts include the Spin Doctors, Junior Marvin, and the Robert Randolph and the Family Band, as well as other notables in the alt-rock and jam categories. Fans of these have plenty of reasons to hear “Walk Around the Sun” and other releases from Jonnie Morgan Band.

Speaking of the theme of their new single, Jonnie Morgan writes, “The single is a fun, summertime song. To me, it takes me back to being in high school and chasing girls on the beach during spring break.”

Jonnie Morgan was named JBL Professional's #1 U.S. Songwriter for 2017 by legendary producer Quincy Jones and by famed singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon.

“It was honestly surreal,” says Morgan. “I've never won anything on such a grand scale in my life. Flying out to L.A. just before our single release to record at the renowned Village Studios was a dream come true.”

Jonnie Morgan Band have performed with hundreds of artists including Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band ) Less Than Jake, Zach Deputy, Relient K, Sammy Hagar, Better Than Ezra, and Cheap Trick. They are often found touring the American Southeast and performing at festivals, such as the NCAA SEC Opening Day Fan Fair in Nashville, the ACUI World Wide Conference, Sunfest, and the Florida Music Festival, which they have had the honor of headlining three times to date.

Previous releases from Jonnie Morgan Band include two studio albums, “Reflections in the Water” (2011) and “Janus” (2014) and a live album “Jonnie Morgan Band: Live from Sunfest” (2015). Jonnie Morgan Band are currently in the studio working on their fourth album, “Walk Around The Sun.”

Musician Alvaro José Fernández Lago releases new single 'Boundaries'


The composer known as Alvaro José Fernández Lago has released his latest single, “Boundaries.” The track has been released with two accompanying instrumental singles, “Hidden Volcano” and “Training Day” for a total listening time of about 10 minutes. The trio have been proudly published as independent releases outside the influence of the corporate music industry. Textured, sweeping, each bringing as much conflict and resolution as a masterfully written short story, “Boundaries” et al signify that we have much to appreciate in Alvaro José Fernández Lago.

Alvaro José Fernández Lago cites as favorite music artists Eye to Eye, Toto, and Yes among others, all three of whom share Lago's enthusiasm for synth keyboards. The latter two both composed scores for feature films, another major interest of Lago's. He also cites as influences Hollywood composers such as Bernard Herrmann (“Psycho”) and Alan Silvestri (“Back to the Future”).

Lago's own work tends toward the pensive and thought-provoking, like Herrmann's, rather than the upbeat and warm, like Silvestri's. He doesn't shy from dissonance and can form whole movements out of minor chords.

“My pieces tend to be melancholic,” writes Lago, “almost always using slow tempo, trying to develop melodies over the most expressive tones of the orchestral ensemble – but I too like to do more lively things for quartets or on the piano.”

'Expressive' is an understatement. Even for classical music, Lago's work can spool out remarkable narratives using piano alone. Under the David-Lynch-esque writing of Alvaro José Fernández Lago, measures become scenes, movements become acts, compositions become plays.

His pieces even have legitimate themes guiding their trajectories.

“'Boundaries' talks about the hard, inner barriers we erect against understanding in our lives,” Lago says. “'Hidden Volcano' regards the sudden emotions and consequences coming from the crude awareness of these barriers. And 'Training Day' is a summary of the journey, a plea to dissolve these inner boundaries.”

Alvaro José Fernández Lago has only been composing since 2014, but he's still managed to publish albums including “Love Time,” “Winter Time,” and “Simple Things,” as well as official singles like “Poem for Italy,” “Childhood,” and his “Homage to Bernard Herrmann.”

He is currently completing an orchestral suite devoted to the stars, planets, and constellations as an tribute to another of his favorites, legendary composer Gustav Holst.

“Boundaries” by Alvaro José Fernández Lago is available from over 700 digital music retailers online worldwide beginning 21 May 2017. Get in early, instrumental fans.

GS's “The 7” EP was released for free download on DatPiff.com early in 2017. GS has worked with Grammy-winning producers Art N Life, Mike Campbell, Dangerous LLC and others. His Holdat LLC record label includes the talents and professional skills of Will Miller.

Pop-punk clan Our Untold Story release official video 'Calm Seas Don't Make Good Sailors'


The Swedish punk rock crew called Our Untold Story have released their latest official video, “Calm Seas Don't Make Good Sailors.” Like the rest of the OUS catalog, the video has been proudly published on the Cuprite Productions independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Driving, upbeat, minimalist and thrumming with energy, “Calm Seas Don't Make Good Sailors” is the most significant official video from Our Untold Story to date.

Our Untold Story's Xander Turian has cited as main artistic influences such legends as Iggy & the Stooges, the Hives, Green Day, and Blink 182, all of which groups boast similarities with Stockholm's Our Untold Story. Turian has also mentioned a deep love for bands like the Rolling Stones, Dire Straits, the Doors and the Beatles, however, and this classic rock vein tempers OUS's minimalist, pop-punk sound into something that is palatable to a surprisingly broad audience across cultures and ages.

In fact, this seemingly natural knack for rocking across boundaries is a central theme of their new “Calm Seas...” video. It speaks to everyone, woman and man, young and old alike.

“The message I want to portray, is that no matter which path you end up choosing, choose the one that makes you happy, not the one you think is expected of you,” writes Turian. “'Calm Seas Don't Make Good Sailors' means that it is the rough times that truly make you who you are, and make you all the stronger for it.”

The video directed by Johannes S. Karpe portrays Xander Turian as an archetype of humanity growing up with rock 'n' roll music from toddler to family man. His youth is played by his real-life siblings, with a cameo of his actual father playing Turian at middle age with children of his own.

“As the song progresses,” says Turian, “we see the boy in his teenage years, clearly putting music to one side as he focuses on girls, only to find himself in a rut surrounded by trash and dusty instruments, trying to write a new song. After the realities of life have taken their toll and our protagonist reluctantly puts on a suit and tie, we see him in the future, settling down with his kids to watch the same band playing on the computer.”

The kids are all played by my younger siblings and the adult “future” me is played by my father.

“Calm Seas Don't Make Good Sailors” is the accompanying B-side to last year's “Go for Broke,” which was also released by Our Untold Story with an official music video. Both are expected to feature on the upcoming Our Untold Story album, “My Dreams, My Rules,” which is rumored to have a 2018 drop date.

The “Calm Seas Don't Make Good Sailors” official video by Our Untold Story is available online worldwide for viewing now. Get in early.

Nicky Monroe feels she has been destined for the music studio from a very early age. A consummate writer and performer, she prioritizes music over the public's perception of her.

“I want to gain my respect as the first stud artist in the game,” says Monroe of this. “I want to be respected through my talents, and not frowned upon because of the image I portray.”

As a clear symbol of her dedication to hip hop and to her goal-oriented life, Nicky Monroe has persevered through years of hard times in pursuit of her dream, including homelessness and unemployment.

“My friends, family, and fans haven't gave up on me, so I'm not going to let them down,” says Nicky Monroe. “I just need the right team and promotion, but I see my numbers going up. Music is my hustle.”

Pop singer Steven C releases new single 'Amaka' feat. Speedy


The singer and songwriter of African pop music known as Steven C has released his latest official single, “Amaka,” feat. Speedy. The track has been proudly published on the Cytoch Media independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Exotic, uplifting, danceable and keyed for radio play around the world, “Amaka” is a track DJs and music fans alike can get behind.

“Amaka” means 'good' in the Igbo language of southeastern Nigeria, but Steven C's song revolves around more romantic themes than one might think.

“The back-story of 'Amaka' is one of wanting something you can’t have, though you are willing to do anything to get it,” writes Steven C. “He sees a beautiful girl who, at first glance, they have a connection he cannot get out of his head. He later gets her by doing everything in his power.”

This tenacity is indicative of Steven C's character both as a performer and as a regular person. Born into a forward-thinking, polygamous family, he bettered himself by studying electrical engineering at Dorben Polytechnic at Abuja in Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory.

Also helping to make “Amaka” one of the most important music exports from Africa in 2017 are the hip hop talents of Speedy. Having been invited to the sound studio for a listening session by Steven C's manager, Mr. Charles Enemchukwa, Speedy jumped at the chance to be included.

“[Speedy] was so impressed, he said he would not mind being featured,” writes Steven C. “I was absolutely mindblown that he had agreed, as he has been in the industry for a long time and is a huge artist.”

Steven C's music career began in the church choir, which found him being elected choirmaster before long. He founded a singing group called Team Age but was left unfulfilled. With little more than the blessing of his mother, Steven C decided to move to South Africa in 2014 to pursue his dream as a music artist. He was signed to Cytoch Media in 2016. “Amaka” is his most prominent official release to date.

“Amaka” by Steven C feat. Speedy from Cytoch Media is available online worldwide from over 700 quality digital retailers now.

Jagger Spacy releases debut self-titled EP


The pop and rap singer known as Jagger Spacy has released his awaited debut EP album, “Jagger Spacy.” It contains five original Spacy tracks for a total listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent pop release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Full of life and rhythm, groove and personality, “Jagger Spacy” is an EP to put Jagger Spacy in the spotlight for 2017 and beyond.

The message I want my music to portray is that it's OK to be you,” Spacy says of his new record. “I never made music to be the cool kid or to impress people. I always used it as a way to express things I didn't really like to talk about. I think listening to a lot of Eminem kind of influenced that.”

Direct right from the start and heartfelt from start to finish, Jagger Spacy's album is both personal and easy to relate to. A pop singer with hip hop in his veins, finding social commonalities with music artists and with his own fans is important to him.

The 'lifestyle' music is great and all, but I can't relate to that,” says Jagger Spacy. “I don't live the party life and never got into drugs. Yeah, I might bump Migos with my homies to get hype, but 'clean' is kind-of my motto.”

This makes Spacy's album singular in that it's urban music without the vices. The Jagger Spacy EP is neither violent nor womanizing, and doesn't pose with guns, drugs or liquor.

“Don't get me wrong,” Spacy says, “I respect the music a lot, it's just not me. I feel like there's enough of that music out there right now.”

Instead, Jagger Spacy explores themes of fun, fame and humanity.

He writes about his new record, “For this EP I tried to hit emotions that I've felt, but also ones that I feel a lot of people could relate to. I want people to know, 'Hey, I've felt this too – I'm there with ya,' you know? I feel like I've accomplished that goal with this project so I'm pumped.”

“Jagger Spacy” by Jagger Spacy is available online worldwide from over 700 quality music stores now.

John Law releases single 'Gotta Do It' feat. Yvette


The rapper and songwriter known as John Law has released his latest official single, “Gotta Do It” feat. Yvette. The track has been proudly published on the Raspucious Records independent music label without the involvement of the corporate record industry. Imaginative, unique, and full of pop and groove, “Gotta Do It” by John Law is one of the most interesting and original hip hop songs to emerge in the new millennium so far.

John Law hails from Fairfield, a city in the music hotbed of California's Bay Area. He has cited as main artistic influences such legends as J. Cole, Kanye West, and Lupe Fiasco. His own sound seamlessly blends contemporary rhymes with an old-school feel on the back beat and a minimalist production style. The result is a single which will appeal to fans of hip hop all over the globe, and especially listeners who truly appreciate that classic, vinyl-record ambiance that is so hard to come by in hip hop these days.

This undeniably fresh sound comes from John Law's goal to do his own thing in music. Asked to describe his start in hip hop, he replies, “People were rapping who I knew, and I wanted to be different.”

But there is more to “Gotta Do It” than just great style.

“The message my song shares with listeners,” John Law writes, “is that when you have something to do, don't procrastinate. Get it done (or do it) because if you don't it will never get done.”

A man of action, himself, nothing could be timelier than “Gotta Do It” in terms of Law's music career. An official single was just a matter of time.

“Procrastination leads to nowhere or to lateness,” says Law. “I'd rather be early than late because I know you've heard the saying, 'the early bird gets the worm,' and I need to eat.”

“Gotta Do It” by John Law is available online worldwide from over 700 digital music retailers now.
