Acclaimed Singer Songwriter Winifred Adams Releases "You Are My Rose" As A Mothers Day Tribute

Winifred's song "You Are My Rose" is the perfect tribute to one of the most important people in all of our lives, our Mothers. As Winifred says, "It's always been my intent to help people feel better from the inside out!" and this single will be sure to be the perfect tribute to your mom this Mothers Day!

After being discovered by a major music producer in Canada while shooting an exercise video, singer/songwriter, Winifred Adams, returned home with an audio tape in hand-instead of an exercise video! Very quickly, Winifred gained her first sponsor. Less than one year later, she made her debut in front of the Colorado Rockies 50,000 hometown crowd and went on to complete her first album. She landed on tv, set up distribution in major retail chains and sang at several of her own shows. Her original demo reached radio several times in different states, featuring different versions of her title song, "You Are My Rose." On an exciting adventure, Winifred went on to sing at Shea Stadium several times and numerous pro & semi-pro sports events.

2009 has begun with a run of world-wide radio play on major stations as well as internet and tv radio. All of her songs have been chosen for airplay and each year her special version of Santa Baby is played both domestically and now world-wide! Her songs have been featured on radio stations all across the country and the world.

New Wedding Song Released By Molten Mike

Imagine a room full of people and the bride and groom dancing to the strains of Molten Mike singing "One Little Love".

This happened.

On Saturday, April 11, 2009, Molten Mike's newest single was released at the Wedding of Randall Ierna and Sparky Paradis. Sparky, who is the President of the Molten Mike Fan Club, and Randall, who is Molten Mike's Publisher and Executive Producer were having supper in January, when Sparky Asked Mike to write a wedding song. Mike said "What kind of song do you want?" Sparky said "Something we can dance to that is Country."

But wait, there is more to this story.

Molten Mike has a select few people that he teaches guitar and songwriting theory to. One of his students, Christina Hope came into a class with a 3 chord riff that inspired Mike to come up with a beautiful Guitar part in 3/4 time.

He then wrote a verse, and called Randall to play the fledgling song over the phone. They decided to immediately go into production and booked the services of their favorite engineer, Glenn Laubaugh at ESP studios, who has recorded and mastered 4 of Mike's 5 full length CD's.

Personnel were assembled, notably Kenny K, the regions top Pedal Steel Guitar Player, Glenn Stevenson on Electric and Double Bass, Randall Ierna on Drums, Ralph Famiglietti on Mandolin, Hill Abrahams on Violin, Glenn Laubaugh on Synthesizer orchestrations, and April Yerger for Back up Female Vocals.

"We worked on this song until the day before Mike left for his 2nd Australian Tour, and then when he got back we finished the vocals, Mixing, Mastering and then a rush production job was sent to Disc Makers, in Pennsauken, N.J." said Randall Ierna. "Disc Makers did a super job with the artwork, and packaging and hit their deadline with a day to spare. Each of the guests received their own copy of the song."

"I was amazed at the audiance reaction to my song. Some people actually had tears in their eyes." said Molten Mike. "Ranluron Records presented me with a wall plaque showing the CD and the Artwork. "People were talking about the song and how beautiful it fit the Wedding. Later that evening I performed the song again at a special after party at Grazzi's Restaurant in St. Petersburg. The whole day was memorable." concluded Molten Mike.

"One Little Love" is just what I wanted." said Sparky Paradis. "Mike wrote a beautiful wedding song for us and I believe many Brides and Grooms will dance to this song in the future. I appreciate all the time, talent and energy that went into the production of this song." concluded Sparky.

Molten Mike has 5 Full Length CD's: "Blues Meltdown", "Genuine Bluesman" "The Movie", "Chameleon" and "All Blues". The first four CD's were all #1 Albums on and "All Blues" has been produced twice in Australia and once in the US.
