Professor Louie & The Crowmatix - New Release


The prolific band Professor Louie & The Crowmatix have another fine release - this one is a combination of studio and live recordings.
Whispering Pines features 10 songs from their extensive repertoire including the youtube favorite title track Whispering Pines.

With Professor Louie handling the lion's share of the vocals as well as the keyboards, Miss Marie's singing & percussion, famed drummer Gary Burke, bassist Frank Campbell, and guitarist Josh Colow rounding out the Woodstock band, this collection kicks off with the timeless "Whispering Pines" written by Richard Manuel and Robbie Robertson. This version is simply stunning and at times sounds like a lost track from the Beach Boys' classic "Pet Sounds" album, with its lush production values, layers and textures.

With so many great rockin' tunes, the big finish is the stunning orchestral arrangement of "Melody of Peace" by Burke, Spinosa and Hurwitz, performed with the Prague Radio Symphony and Kuhn Choir, recorded in the Czech Republic after receiving the ERM/NAXOS composition award.
The artwork is very special on the Whispering Pines CD. Woodstock Records developed a Community/Work program with students of NYUlster College Design Department and together they created this beautiful CD package.

Digital Music NY February 9th Networking And Discussion Meetup


So how is 2010 looking for digital music? Pretty good to great based on early reports. People are buying more music, services like Pandora are profitable and now available through TV (thank you, Roku) and in your car (watch out Sirius) and the technology and models that will allow artists, producers and labels to do more and make more are hitting the market.

At our next meetup we'll take a look at which of these developments you need to know about today with an overview of announcements made at the Consumer Electronics Expo and Midem (Eric de Fontenay of Musicdish will have just returned and go over what he saw there). Of course, this is also a great chance to meet, network with and catch up with colleagues in the music, marketing and related media industries.

The Meetup will be in the private room at Gonzalez Y Gonzalez. We are starting networking at 6 (Happy Hour ends at 7) with the speakers and discussions at 7.
