The International Music Consulting Firm GINGIO Hosts Events At January NAMM and Awards Week

Guitar Player Magazine has premiered folky singer/songwriter Katie Garibaldi's new music video "Star in the East." The video was made by claymation and stop motion artist Marc Morgan, which pays homage to the classic Christmas movies of the '60s that we all know and love.

As told to GuitarPlayer.com, Garibaldi says, "'Star in the East' is a song I wrote about the biblical story of the three kings traveling by the light of the star that's guiding them to Bethlehem to the newborn Jesus. The lyrics are written from the perspective of the three kings and because of it's storytelling style, I was envisioning a video that was a throwback to the old school claymation/stop motion children's Christmas movies. I couldn't get the idea out of my head and I was so lucky and excited to find Mac Morgan by discovering some of his amazing work online. He happily took on the project and I love the personality he put into the characters and all the special details. He blew my expectations away!"

Less Chat, More Action As 'Brazenflow' Hits Us With His Brilliant Tune 'BELL BIV DEVOE'

Music Video: https://youtu.be/NpVX1fOlXSE

Unsigned Brazenflow has landed... and he's coming to mix it up in the crazy world of Hip Hop and R'n'B with his first release 'Bell Biv Devoe'. This fun tune has a subtle message entwined within the trippy and wavey melody which on its own can enrich anyone's day.

Brazenflow's urban tone compliments wonderfully as he moves us with a message to do more, and speak less. A lesson most of could do with taking heed of. He bases his song around the history of 90's R'n'B group 'Bell Biv Devoe' who found that plans they had were hijacked by others in the music industry and they learnt that if they hadn't talked so much that others wouldn't have been able gain an advantage over them.

Inspired as well by more modern artists including 2Pac, Kanye West and Dr Dre; Brazenflow started to combine introspective lyrics with a wide ranging variety of melodies producing an altogether unique sound. This developed during his school years in North London as he was producing more and more music, as well as exploring the UK Grime scene to its full. Joining a music group in Camden, Brazenflow began to collaborate with emerging talent, and after a few years in a music apprenticeship programme he was able to start releasing his music. Respect!

'Bell Biv Devoe' is a track that Brazenflow has given his all, the enchanting lyrics coupled with his new and unique singing style ensures that this is going to be a track that's on everyones playlist. This unsigned artist has also worked hard to put together a video to compliment this fresh new tune. I've no doubt that this is not the last we see….and hear from Brazenflow!

MusicDish Review: Canadian Singer-Songwriter Melvin Alan's "Wonderful Life"

Melvin Alan, a singer/songwriter based in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, crafts appealing tunes filled with hooky choruses, great melodies and pleasing vocals through his acoustic handmade Takimine and vintage telecaster. He focuses on groove, feel and finesse, meanwhile using improvisation as his primary method of creating music. The sounds of his music are known to examine one's inner journey, touching on life's ups and downs, struggles and realisations. His upcoming album "Wonderful Life" is a foray into his consciousness, consisting of 12 alto-rock tracks. With Corey Curtis(bass), Alvaro Rojas(guitar), Sam Cartwright(drums/percussion), Tyson Nelson(keyboards) and himself on vocals, he presents tracks such as "Ragged Mind", a strong opener with a catchy yet sullen vocal line, "Down On Your Knees", a ballad that gets under your skin, and "I Fall For You", a sensual and reminiscent power-pop.

His title track "Wonderful Life" is uplifting and powerful, a song that leaves space for minds to pause and reflect on life. With lyrics like "it's a wonderful life, forever in your heart, forever in your soul, forever rock and roll", we sense the optimistic mood flowing out of Melvin's charismatic vocals, the soaring guitar accompaniment and the saturated drumline. The track's intricate instrumentation and stellar vocal performances keep the listeners hooked with Melvin's emotional story. Meanwhile the music video is engaging as Melvin explores the city, appreciating the beauty of the beach and night markets. Colorful and groovy, the music video certainly presents us characteristics of Melvin's music as dynamic, exciting and bouncy. "Wonderful Life" is the perfect example of the kind of songs that simply begs you to hit the replay button.

Multi-Platinum Rock/Country Songwriter Kevin Fisher (Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans) Puts His Beer Goggles On, Pops A Top And Says 'Beer Me' On His First Full-Length Album

Kevin Fisher (https://beerme.hearnow.com/) has two words and 12 songs for all country-rock fans needing to de-stress after a long, hard day at work: BEER ME!

After years finding success as a country music songwriter but toiling somewhat anonymously behind the scenes, the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and "almost famous" rocker plays conduit to the gods of suds, channeling their glory while taking center stage as an artist with his full-length debut on 37 Records / McJames Music.

Awash in hops and foam, playful metaphors and witty storytelling, 'Beer Me!' is a clever, powerfully rocking, fun and freewheeling, but often heartfelt, musically eclectic joyride of 12 tracks celebrating the magical powers of brew - when someone sees life through beer goggles, the adjectives flow freely!)

Some of these infectious titles will make you laugh, and that's as much the point as sharing the heartbreak of the collection's lone ballad "Beer Blue Sky." You can't help but have a party listening to songs like "Beer Me," "I Wish You Were Beer," "Dog Beers," "Better Beer," "Beerly Beloved," "Beer Thirty," "Beer in the Fridge," "To Beer or Not To Beer" (Kevin's ode to Shakespeare and his English Major days) and "I Like Beer." And no suds-centered collection would be complete without a shout out like "Last Call."

For Kevin, reality and crafty marketing mythology meet at the moment where producer Steven McClintock and the gang at 37 Records found him, sitting on a fence between rock and roll and country. The myth is that he couldn't decide between Chardonnay and beer and he was toiling in a band called Hank Zeppelin. The reality is that Kevin's been in bands since the '90s, when his folk/rock group Naked to the World became the "most endorsed unsigned band in history."

But let's go with the fun stuff. He was in a constant state of confusion about what to listen to, what to drink and what to play. So there Kevin sat, box of wine on his left and a twelve pack on his right. More likely, after a day of serious songwriting, he was de-stressing with his favorite beers. His actual favorites are Sierra Nevada and Newcastle, but more mainstream brews like Coors Light or Pabst Blue Ribbon will do in a pinch. He paid for them, and bought rounds for the whole bar with the royalties from having his songs cut by multi-platinum country music greats like Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans and Uncle Kracker and getting his babies played on "True Blood," "Pretty Little Liars," "Brotherhood" and "America's Funniest Home Videos."

All of a sudden, out of the Beer Blue Sky, a vision of Hank William Shakesbeer showed up with two tall icy cold cans of beer. Billy Shakesbeer hovered over Kevin and spoke these words, "Son, pop a top and let country be your rock. If you can't find it in Country music and beer you can't find it.

Then came the glorious epiphanies of McClintock's partner, Tim James, and Kevin, which inspired the creation of 'BEER ME'. Kevin's life now had meaning: beer. Kevin's life now had purpose: beer. Kevin's thirst now had been quenched: beer. In turn, he wants to tell all country-rock fans who love recent classics like Toby Keith's feisty "Red Solo Cup" and Luke Bryan's haunting "Drink A Beer": Quench YOUR thirst: Drink in this 12 pack and BEER ME!

Kevin has been signed with McJames Music, the publishing company owned by McClintock and James, for four years. He released his Americana oriented debut EP 'A Beautiful Thing' in 2015. Along the way, he came up randomly with a few beer-oriented songs and thought about the way country music goes in waves – sometimes being driven by party/drinking songs, other times not. Realizing those kinds of tunes have been popular lately, he responded with a few brew-filled tunes. He had stockpiled four when McClintock suggested he create a whole album of them.

Kevin says, "My attitude was, broad genres like country, rock and Americana don't line up anymore, so maybe it's time to create a whole new subgenre. Jimmy Buffet's got his Parrotheads, and has cornered the market on island rock or trop rock. Maybe 'Beer Me' can be the start of what we can call 'Libation rock.'"

The singer's many connections ensured that this Nashville and Los Angeles production would include some of the industry's top session and touring players, including guitarists Brent Mason (George Strait, Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band, Blake Shelton) and John Jorgenson (Elton John, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash) and keyboardist Buddy Hyatt (Collin Raye, Johnny Lee, The Bellamy Brothers).
