Trump Helps Artist Finish Album

Despite many negative headlines, Donald Trump has been a godsend to a recording artist from Chicago who had been trying to complete his masterpiece album for seven years.

Recording artist Octathorpe's genius idea started when his Music Life Coach, Mark Desvaux, challenged him to create the ultimate incentive to complete his album within six months. Sheldon Kessel aka Octathorpe wrote a post-dated check for $250 to support Trump's Presidential Campaign Fund as a penalty if he did not complete his album by the deadline.

Octathorpe said: "My dream has always been to be a full-time musician, but life always got in the way. I realised that unless I could finish my current album, the dream would die. When Mark challenged me, he asked me to donate money to an organization that was against my beliefs and values. I became more motivated than I have ever been, and failure was not an option!"

Mark Desvaux of musiclifecoach.com said: "The number one reason people approach me for coaching is they have dream in music, but trying to do things on their own is impossible. For major artists with deadlines set by their label, they have a huge incentive to deliver on time. For the indie artist however, the lack of deadlines is a huge issue. I always ask clients to set incentives to hit deadlines we agree on, and Sheldon's idea was the best I have ever heard. He delivered his album a week early!"

Octathorpe's album "In The Meantime" will be released on September 30th 2016. Listen to a sampler of the album at soundcloud.com/octathorpe/in-the-meantime-album-sampler

Paul Knopf Releases A Jazz Piano Solo Called "Pressed Flowers"

Veteran piano jazz composer and host of the Outcat Show Podcast, Paul Knopf is releasing his new piano jazz solo: "Pressed Flowers," through R. Media Inc. Pressed Flowers is a piano jazz solo that is available right now on CD Baby, ITunes and Amazon for digital download. "Pressed Flowers" by Paul Knopf is a piano jazz instrumental love song.

Paul Knopf explained the meaning of his song by saying: "The piano jazz instrumental love song, Pressed Flowers is inspired by a poem I wrote about an experience I had. Here is the poem I wrote: You return again and again, in repetition, winding, rewinding: Laura, Beatrice. I press you between the pages of the book of life, but the nectar of your presence escapes. It's like a movie. I enter the park through a half open gate as you are leaving or seated at the other end of a subway car, you are reading a book. I never approach you. What if you are not you? The girl I knew in the playgrounds of my childhood."

The Outcat, Paul Knopf is a seasoned jazz pianist with an interesting past. His career started in the 1950's, during that time he achieved critical acclaim from Playboy Magazine and Down Beat Magazine; he also appeared on a 1950's CBS program titled: "Jazz is my beat." However, he was left a casualty when the Rock and Roll takeover of 1960's came to fruition. As the entertainment business closed in on him he resorted to playing jazz piano for strip clubs and society bands; in addition, he also worked with professional dancers such as Alvin Ailey and Martha Graham. The stress of not being wanted as a jazz artist brought on a rocky road of anxiety and alcoholism, but in the 1990's he resurfaced on the Joe Franklin Show to let his fans know he was still here. Paul Knopf's discography includes vinyl releases such as Knopfian Jazz, the Outcat Comes Back and the Enigma of a Day; CD Releases such as Collage and Through it All, as well as digital download EP releases titled: Jazz You Can Feel Volume one and Jazz You Can Feel Volume 2. Paul Knopf was also a featured subject in a documentary titled Bohemia the Life of a New York City Poet. Paul Knopf will be 90 years old in a few months and he shows no signs of slowing down, he does a podcast called the Outcat Show, he performs regularly, and his new jazz piano solo single Pressed Flowers is out now.

We want to bring new life to vinyl industry which is bombarded by commercial music styles and give our listeners the already mentioned rare techno groove.

MusicDishTV Review: "Hello" Music Video By K-Syran

"Hello," from K-Syran's new album "Smoke In My Veins," is released on August 8, 2016. The new single "Hello", is already climbing the Billboard charts, gaining #38 on Billboard Top 40.

In this music video, the international singer/songwriter K-Syran embraces the edgy social media tech. She always has a knack for putting out creative music videos. Along with the seductive dance tunes, K-Syran films a DIY music video using face filters on Snap Chat. She morphs from a puppy to a cat to a flower crown queen. The sass is definitely there in every second of the video and from the comments it seems people love this original idea.

According to K-Syran, "I think it's a mistake to think that lyrics in dance music cannot deal with anything of substance. Dance is a form of spiritual activity for human beings throughout the history of our kind. That's why I want my music to give audiences music that would move their bodies while engaging their minds. " This snapchat-style clip for this hit serves as a unique breakthrough to get people in sync with catchy melody, while digesting the thought-provoking message in a way free from worry or complexity. Known for her bouncy pop artwork, the Norwegian-born star's music has also been compared to such art rock figures as Bjork or Clodplay.

Don't Care" entered the chart at #12, but has been holding fast in the Top 10 for the last 4 weeks. "They Don't Care" has been warmly received across music genre lines

with his critically acclaimed award winning "G-Fire II" CD, say's that he believes the success of the single "They Don't Care", and the accompanying video is because

it relates to people of all backgrounds, ethnic and social groups. He further comments that, as a global community we are all affected by crime, violence, socio-

economic collapse, climate change, and other important issues that confront mankind. Simply put "They Don't Care" is a statement for our times now.

On the album "Outta Time", Vernon has armed himself with virtuoso talent such as, Greg Howe (Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake), Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson,

Jeff Beck), Doug Wimbish (Living Color, Jeff Beck), Victor Johnson (Busboys, Sammy Hagar), Kiko Loureiro (Megadeth, Angra), and others who put on a blistering sonic

display, seasoning each song appropriately.

Keep ROCKing It Sponsors Blind Rapper NovaCain's Musical Journey

Keep ROCKing It (KeepROCKingIt.com), a leading source for mixtape download and streaming, announced to music fans everywhere that blind rapper, NovaCain, is the first

artist to receive a sponsorship contract from the revolutionary website.

As oppose to offering recording contracts to artists, Keep ROCKing It is staying true to its revolutionary business model by offering independent artists sponsorships.

A sponsorship from Keep ROCKing It provides artists with financial assistance towards marketing, advertising, and promotion. In return, artists become official

spokespeople for Keep ROCKing It. With a deal structured in this manner, the sponsored artist is not bound to Keep ROCKing It and can seek a recording contract with a

major label if they choose to do so.

"In an industry where other websites simply reinvent the wheel, we dare to be different," says Keep ROCKing It's President/CEO Mike P. "We have created a platform for

artists to generate revenue from the release of their mixtape and/or single. In this industry, mixtapes and singles were commonly given away for free and considered

'promotional materials.' As we all know, recording a single and definitely recording a mixtape is not cheap. It's not fair for an independent artist to feel obligated

to spend thousands of dollars just to give it all away for free."

"Luckily, we found NovaCain right before desperation overcame him and he began giving away his work of art. Due to him having over 300k plays on SoundCloud, we knew

that he was a special talent and perfect to represent our company. Though we are taking a chance on NovaCain, he is equally taking a chance on us by giving us the

ability to exclusively host and sell his single 'Snapchat Party' through our revolutionary download feature."
Keep ROCKing It and NovaCain have developed a unique marketing plan that allows Nova to control the vision he has for his music career. They have also agreed on the

price of one download credit per download for his single 'Snapchat Party.' One download credit is the monetary equivalent of $.10. NovaCain will directly receive 60%

of all revenue generated from the download of 'Snapchat Party.'

Working closely with producer Sonny Cole, reggae artist Raggs Gustaffe has made a great deal of noise in his scene. Along with his work with Cole, Raggs also saw one of his songs go to number one on the Reverbnation charts and with that, he plans on making more hits in the coming months as he's back to working with Cole on a new project.
