825 Records Releases Kerchief's Debut Album "Machines And Animals"


Following a single release paired with immediate regional touring and press, radio, and TV broadcast exposure comes Kerchief's highly anticipated debut LP "Machines and Animals," available on digital outlets worldwide today.

The success of the album's lead single "Milk & Honey" started swiftly upon its release shortly after Kerchief's debut at SXSW 2015. The in-studio music video premiered on THECOOLTV Network across the United States while internet, indie, and college radio followed suit, consequently obtaining an official CMJ Chart add and a consistent rotation throughout the summer. Press from print magazines such as Music Connection and indie blogs across the web spread the news about the former Vanity Theft guitarist/singer's new venture. The support from all angles is strengthened by a pre-existing fan base accept- ing Britt Hill's new project with open arms and packing clubs from Tennessee to Chicago, everywhere around, and in between.

With ten songs tracked within seven days in Brooklyn, NY, in September of 2014, “Machines & Animals” offers tracks that expertly weave Hill’s smooth voice with the edge of her songwriting and lyrics. Guitar riffs bite into bass lines that ebb and flow with emotional vocals, taking inspiration from a personal journey. Heavy drum beats and layered guitars articulate the feelings behind stories of the pursuit of finding a purpose in life’s daily struggles, reflecting an evident influence from ‘90s alternative rock.

Producer Matty Amendola knew working with Kerchief would be a perfect fit as soon as he heard her demos. Working closely with engineer and Grammy Award winner Butch Jones, he created a sound that would bring Kerchief’s debut album to life. Shortly after, Kerchief signed an artist development and distribution agreement with Amendola's music incubator, 825 Records.

Recent reviews have also added, "Her musical influences are more urban than, say, Ani DiFranco, but she has the same strength of character" (The Blues Bunny) as well as comparisons such as "Arcade Fire- meets-PJ Harvey" (Tunes Digest) and succinct statements such as "Hill’s music reflects a long and sto- ried personal journey that hits with force and leaves the mind in a haze of personality" (Richard Lyne - Appetizer Radio).

Kerchief can be seen during the next few months around the South with a regular show schedule, but has been announced to be headlining The Cutting Room in NYC on August 29th. She'll be backed by special guests bassist Michael MacIvor (Candiria) and producer Matty Amendola on drums.

Advanced tickets are available now via Ticketfly and come with a free CD.

Number 1 iTunes World Artist Breaks The New Age Barrier


With two albums in two years, two weeks at number 1 on iTunes World Charts, a feature artist on Noisetrade and support from one of music's 80's and 90's icons, Belinda Carlisle, Simrit is releasing tracks from her latest album From the Ancient Storm to Triple A radio.



Previously known for her reflective versions of classic mantras throughout the Kundalini Yoga communities around the world, Simrit's previous two albums have demonstrated a definitive departure in sound and style.



Attracting the attention of Belinda Carlisle, Simrit has performed on stage with the ex-Gogo's lead singer, collaborated with Belinda on her 2014 album, has contributed to Belinda's forthcoming 2016 album and is planning a series of joint concerts.



Ms Carlisle said of Simrit "The first time I saw her live I thought – wow she's kind of punk rock. Her sense of melody is different from a lot of the other chant artists and her energy and musicality set her apart."



Belinda continued, "Simrit, to me, is the voice of this new day and age."



This week sees the release of the first single "All of Myself" from the album "From the Ancient Storm" to Triple A radio across, America, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand along with a track from her 2014 album called Revolution.



Simrit describes the songs as a journey of change, "First there is a revolution that occurs, change within, then comes complete surrender to love as described in the song "All of Myself". Everybody comes to the point of surrendering to love in some way. That is what these songs are about."



The tracks have been made available to radio along with two additional songs this week in the hope that the music previously enjoyed by the yoga communities are embraced by the mainstream radio networks.

Singer Sued For $10M & Branded As "Too Old & Ugly" Makes A Come Back


What started out as a $75 gig to sing in a P!NK tribute band lead to Collette McLafferty (41) being sued for $10M and almost ended her career. She overcame with a new video covering P!NK's Perfect (with 20,000 views on Facebook) and her first solo album "42" being released on her 42nd birthday, 11/23. She also found a calling for both legal reform and ageism activism, calling for all women to "feel no shame."

Collette McLafferty had enjoyed a 21 year career as the lead singer of the popular east coast indie band edibleRed (signed to Select Records), a commercial singer for major brands such as Mattel and MetLife, a session singer, and a semi-finalist on America's Next Broadway Star. She and her band were featured on MTV Buzzworthy, VH1 and had much success abroad.

Collette was hired to be the lead singer in a local P!NK Tribute band that, unbeknownst to her, was in a civil war between the current band owner and his former partner, who was also a personal injury lawyer. Out of anger the former partner filed a law suit suing the current band leader and Collette for $10M. In the lawsuit he claimed that she was "too ugly" and "too out of tune" to sing in a P!NK Tribute band. The New York Post picked up the story and headlined it "Singer sued for being too old and ugly for Pink cover band". Time Magazine's website, Yahoo News and several other new sources picked up the headline. >From there Collette's world crumbled amongst the viral media sensationalism which now deemed the 41 old singer "too old" as well as "ugly and a mediocre singer", despite her career success and classical training from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.

With the lawsuit still in litigation, Collette has managed to turn her nightmare into a cause to help countless people by becoming a leader in lawsuit reform through the Lawsuit Reform Alliance and introducing Collette's Law into New York State legislation. Collette's Law will help "discourage meritless and frivolous litigation" by increasing the cost liability for those initiating them. Collette's Law will help save millions in taxpayer dollars as well as save innocent bystanders from going through the emotional and economic horror of unwarranted legal action.

Through the turmoil of the last year Collette has discovered the beauty of having nearly 42 years of life experience. She has come out against ageism in the entertainment industry and dedicated her first solo album, entitled "42", (sneak peak of 1st single "Lunacy") to women who are told their talent is diminished by their age. She created the #feelnoshame campaign urging women of all ages to post pictures with their true age on social media.

In Collette's own words, "Today I am stronger, more experienced and have greater inner and outer beauty. As I turn 42, I truly Feel No Shame!"

Liza Fox Reveals Bipolar Disorder In "I Am Not I" Music Video


US Billboard and UK Music Week charting singer tells a story of her bipolar disorder in the new music video "I Am Not I".

Not long ago, Liza Fox met a mysterious gentleman who cast a magic spell on her. Every midnight, the singer wakes up seeing his shadow above her bed. She experiences extreme mood swings. Liza feels a growing desire to meet the mysterious man again. During the ordeal, she transforms from an innocent angelic girl to a witchy warrior.

The singer's personal transformation is reflected in her new album "I Am Not I" produced by Hungarian DJ Jus Grata. Each of the six songs, including the title track, is a unique story revealing a facet of her multidimensional personality.

Premiering on July 13, 2015, the music video for "I Am Not I" was directed by an eccentric and multitalented barber who, like the singer herself, is fascinated by astrology, esotericism, and the paranormal. "I told my barber what's happening to me, and immediately we came up with the theme for the music video – a mystical story in the medieval style," says Liza Fox.

In the music video, events unfold like a dreamy inception: As Liza is sleeping in bed, a snake crawls on her like a seductive Serpent to possess her spirit as she sings "I am not I when I love you tonight." She looks into the mirror and sees a witchy warrior. Meanwhile, a man dressed like a monk is reading satanic scriptures, casting his evil spell as Liza is falling deeper into darkness. Chained in the medieval torture chamber, she tries to escape through levitation. The video ends with her warrior self setting the water on fire. "By burning water, I claim victory over darkness and bipolar disorder," the singer explains.
