Talented Hip-hop Act, Jon Clawd, Announces The Release Of His First Body Of Works Titled "Fried Fish And Moonshine"


Jon Clawd is a talented hip hop artist that is looking to make a name for himself in the industry by treating lovers of good music to captivating and melodious sounds and lyrics. Known for his characteristic infusion of the soulful sound of trap hip-hop into a sonic self-portrait, Clawd released "Clawd Have Mercy," a few months back where he worked with Grammy-nominated producer, Majid "Chi" Hasan at the console.



Clawd has gained a reputation for effortlessly spitting tight, streamlined verses, which was again replicated in the single produced by Hasan. "Clawd Have Mercy" is unlike the usual trap music, and it is no wonder it has recorded great success in a relatively short while. Most recent Jon Clawd just dropped a brand new video titled "All My Life."



After an adventurous journey across several paths, Clawd has come back to his first love - making good music, arriving as a complex and multifaceted modern artist. His amazing blend of soul, work and originality have helped him to carve a niche for himself in the entertainment world, a feature that remains evident in his recently released project - Fried Fish and Moonshine.



Clawd aims to take trap music to an unprecedented height, backed by RnB/hip-hop field, Rich Mogul.



In addition to providing thought-provoking music to the world, Clawd has also shown his versatility and creativity in motion pictures, as he is also currently working on his emerging web series Little Town, Big Trouble, an on-going project that he helps write, cast, film, and direct. This is in addition to his single titled "Jemmi Kemmil."



Unique combining rigid discipline and dazzling talent on display, the entertainer has been described by many as the missing innovator in the world of trap music and probably the first inductee to its own hall of fame.



Jon Clawd is not looking rest on his hoax as he is currently on a promotional tour to push "Fried Fish and Moonshine" and recently launched out the visuals. He is also looking to make 2019 an amazing year for himself and lovers of music worldwide as he gears up for the 1st quarter of 2019 with his follow up EP entitled Fine Baby.



The music industry and the world as a whole can only sit back and watch Jon Clawd do what he knows how to do best - entertain.

New EP Release From Jazzy Sky - 'Breakfast'


The "Jazzy Sky" band is very pleased to announce the release of their first EP, composed of four Jazzy songs, on December 7, 2018 (pre-order available on the November 9th 2018). This project started in 2016 with the recording of their first single "Breakfast", performed by Elizabeth, and was finished in 2018 to include three other songs performed by guest singer: Camille Van Niekerk.



A presentation video is also available at this address: https://youtu.be/nCq-tlO93EU .



Camille is a singer and vocal instructor. She loves sharing the beauty and joy of music with others, whether through performance or teaching. Camille began studying voice and performing in musicals at age seven. In 2010, Camille began working at University, where she studied classical voice and jazz voice. Camille graduated Summa cum laude with a 3.98 GPA. After graduating, she earned her teaching credential and taught classroom choral and instrumental music. Shortly after moving, Camille began her private vocal studio, providing vocal coaching, ear training, and recording for students of all ages. When she is not teaching, she also sings with chorales and a Gospel Choir.



The music was composed by Stephane Querry, as were the lyrics (with the help of his brother Olivier). Stephane Querry is a pianist and composer who began piano at age eleven. After studying in different music schools, he received a classical piano scholarship to study with Michel Prady, and he has been luckily enough to be selected inside the prestigious professional classroom of France Clidat (at the "Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris") for 4 years (1999-2003), where he developed his technique in classical music. He studies Jazz (Harmony, Piano improvisation, band formation and rhythm) in the David Patrois Classroom in the musical conservatory of the 5th district of Paris and also in other various classrooms (Jean-Christophe Dorchies for example).



Very attracted to music composition, Stephane wrote a post romantic piano concerto and several classical transcriptions for the trio as well as several Jazz songs. The subject of this EP mainly concerns the first steps of a love story with the song "Tonight" which is about the first meeting between a man and a woman, "Breakfast" - a stay in a hotel far away from a love; "All or Nothing" which describes the wish to share a love story happiness with a deceased family member, and finally "In love" which is about the feeling of being in love, with a message of hope.

Esoteric Recordings To Release BE-BOP DELUXE "SUNBURST FINISH" 3CD/1DVD Limited Edition Deluxe Boxed Set - November 23, 2018


Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered four disc deluxe expanded boxed set limited edition (comprising 3 CDs and a DVD) of SUNBURST FINISH the legendary 1976 album by BE-BOP DELUXE.



Recorded in the Autumn of 1975 at Abbey Road studios (with some sessions also taking place at AIR studios in London), SUNBURST FINISH was the third album by Be-Bop Deluxe and the first to feature the line-up of BILL NELSON (vocals, guitars, keyboards), CHARLIE TUMAHAI (bass, vocals), ANDY CLARK (keyboards) and SIMON FOX (drums). It was also the first BE-BOP DELUXE album to be co-produced by BILL NELSON and JOHN LECKIE. An album of immense musical inventiveness and creativity, SUNBURST FINISH was one of the finest albums of its era, a perfect cohesion of ten classic songs written by BILL NELSON (featuring his highly imaginative guitar playing) and a stylized and striking artwork package. Featuring such classic material as "Heavenly Homes", "Crying to the Sky", "Sleep that Burns", "Life in the Air Age", "Crystal Gazing" and "Blazing Apostles", the album also spawned the hit single "Ships in the Night" and launched BE-BOP DELUXE as one of the major breakthrough acts of 1976.



This expanded reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 39 bonus tracks drawn from a stunning new 5.1 surround sound & stereo mixes from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, previously unreleased out-takes from the album sessions, a BBC Radio "In Concert" performance from January 1976, a rare John Peel Show session from February 1976 (unavailable on CD for over twenty years), along with an unissued and previously unreleased 1976 Harvest Records promotional video for "Ships in the Night" and a session for BBC TV's "Old Grey Whistle Test" show from January 1976.



Another highlight of this limited edition boxed set is the lavishly illustrated 68-page book with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. Additionally, the set includes a facsimile of the 1976 SUNBURST FINISH tour programme, postcards and a replica poster. This special deluxe limited edition boxed set of SUNBURST FINISH is a fitting tribute to a fine band, the creative vision of Bill Nelson and a wonderful album.

"I've always been really inspired by the Blessed Mother's story", explains Katie. "Mary was chosen for this miracle and huge responsibility and no matter what anyone else thought, despite any of her fears, and regardless of being turned away at an inn when in need, she carried on and still believed in God's promises.



I wrote this song about her tremendous power of faith, and I wanted the music video to reflect a gradual sense of awakening from timid to bold faithfulness. I hope it inspires people to embrace the kind of gentle but courageous surrender to God's plan that Mary's journey symbolizes to me."

Critically-Acclaimed Instrumental Rock Guitarist Mike Dekleva Releases His Second Four Song Instrumental Rock Music EP "Psychedelia"


Instrumental rock guitarist Mike Dekleva releases his second four song instrumental rock music EP, "Psychedelia," on Friday, November 9, 2018.



"Psychedelia" follows in the footsteps of Dekleva's critically acclaimed and award-winning 2015 debut instrumental rock EP, "Synergy." Like "Synergy," Dekleva's new EP "Psychedelia" is a collection of four new original instrumental rock songs and was recorded at Paragon Recording Studios in Franklin, Tennessee, and in Dekleva's home recording studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico. "Psychedelia" was co-produced by Dekleva and Nashville session guitarist Robbie Calvo, and features performances by Dekleva (lead, rhythm and acoustic guitars), Robbie Calvo (rhythm guitars), Jason Webb (piano and keyboards), Amanda McCoy (bass guitar) and Grady Saxman (drums and percussion). "Psychedelia" was mixed by Casey Barker at Paragon Recording Studios, and mastered by John Mayfield at Mayfield Mastering, in Nashville Tennessee.



Dekleva's guitar playing has drawn favorable comparisons to the playing of renowned guitarists Steve Lukather, Neal Schon, Dan Huff, and Eric Clapton. His music features strong vocal-like guitar melodies and pop-style musical arrangements, but also incorporates elements of classic hard rock music from the '70's and '80's. Dekleva's music has been described as having an abundance of "melody, timbre, tone and all-round class," that should appeal to not only fans of instrumental rock guitar, but to "music lovers in general." (JamSphere Independent Music Magazine, January 13, 2016).



"Psychedelia," will be available for purchase beginning on Friday, November 9, 2018, from Dekleva's "CD Baby" store, as both a special, limited edition CD and as a digital download. The EP will also be available from iTunes in a "Mastered for iTunes" format, with a pre-sale starting on Friday, November 2, 2018.

Announcing Amped Studio 2.0


The brand new version of the online DAW, Amped Studio, features the next generation of virtual instruments, and allows you to 'compose with your voice' with sophisticated pitch- and beat-to-MIDI features that quickly turn your vocal ideas into songs. Best of all, you can use Amped Studio 2.0 for free!



Available: Now

Price: FREE subscription or $4,99 a month for extra content and instruments.



Online music production is about to be revolutionised with the release of Amped Studio 2.0. Amped Studio is a sophisticated online DAW that lets you produce complete tunes with audio and MIDI tracks as you would with any DAW. However, because it's a browser-based DAW, it is not limited to music production on one computer – instead you can make music anywhere in the world for free, as long as you have an internet connection!



Amped Studio already stands out from most DAWs in that you can record and play both audio and MIDI content at the same time on the same track, and also add as many virtual instruments and effects as you want. However, the latest 2.0 enhancements look set to make Amped Studio the most intuitive and inspirational online DAW out there, while also including incredible features that mirror the best in traditional DAW production.



Amped Studio 2.0 now includes external virtual instruments – just like VSTs – which are produced using the all-new WAM (Web Audio Module) technology.



The two free WAM instruments are OBXD and DEXED, each based on famous classic analogue and FM synths. Augur is the first commercially-available WAM instrument but, as WAM is open source, more developers are expected to release WAM instruments over the next few months. You can find more on Amped Studio's sister site WAM.fm.



Amped Studio 2.0 also features brand new pitch- and beat-detection technology called Hum and Beatz, so users can hum or beatbox into the DAW which then automatically creates MIDI notes and beats. Simply assign a virtual instrument, sing and compose with your voice!



As well as the all-new WAM instruments and Hum and Beatz detection, other additions to Amped Studio include volume and panning automation plus a special Content Editor which allows more sophisticated audio editing.



Amped Studio 2.0 is available on a free subscription that includes the all-new WAM instruments and vocal-to-MIDI features. A premier subscription of $4.99 a month gets you more instruments, sounds and audio options. Amped Studio 2.0 has been developed within the new Web Assembly browser technology and currently runs under Chrome, Vivaldi and Opera, and will eventually work in other browsers as they move to Web Assembly.



Bil Bryant, CEO of Amped Studio says:

"The 2.0 update to Amped Studio really drives online music making up to another level. As well as adding sophisticated yet fun tools that help you turn ideas into music immediately, we have looked at the best features in traditional DAWs and brought those online. Our WAM open source technology could see many traditional VST instrument developers start converting their titles for online music production, so that all DAW users can enjoy their favourite instruments, wherever they are in the world."
