Will Sheridan - G.I.A.N.T.

Going In And Never Timid - G.I.A.N.T. - is Will Sheridan's statement to the world. Following his viral 2011 single Welcome to the Jungle, Will returns with his first full-length album. G.I.A.N.T. is a boiling pot of Will's new-wave-hip-hop sound, dark lyricism, and pop sensibility. Eighteen tracks come together to make a G.I.A.N.T. album and present a ride through an artist's feelings- love, loss, hope, and ambition are all equal parts Will Sheridan. Sheridan made noise last year when he came out on live television which lead to him getting selected to be on an MTV panel on gay rights with the likes of Lt. Dan Choi and author Keith Boykin. Songs such as "Set Fire to the Streets" and "Bully Bulliers" on G.I.A.N.T. display Will's drive for being a fighting human rights advocate. Will Sheridan, who is currently in Kenya for charity work, will be releasing his next single 'Blind' upon his return. G.I.A.N.T. is distributed through Royal Advisor Records which was founded in 2010 by New York DJ/producer Lorant Duzgun.

Siberian Strummers Two Chords Break Cover With 'Y Should I Care', Their Intense Debut EP

Liverpool, San Francisco, Nashville, Seattle: Some cities are writ large in pop music forever. If it has twenty more musicians like Anton Serov, the next one could be Tomsk, Russia. Anton and his band, Two Chords, whose self-produced debut EP was released this month, are Siberians from the far reaches of the Russian Federation, living closer to Mongolia than mainland Europe. Winters bring twenty-below-zero temperatures and the band travel hundreds of miles between gigs. Maybe it's not surprising that this icy crucible of a place has forged Two Chords into a formidable rock unit. 'Break Through', the first song on the Y Should I Care EP, is a testament to the sometimes unforgiving life of the determined rock musician. "This is the message for everyone who dreams to make something in his life," says lead singer and songwriter Anton. "The message is simple - keep doing, don't look around, don't listen to those who are interested in seeing you lose." Anton writes and sings in English, making Two Chords' music accessible to Western listeners. The band say that the Internet has enlightened people in Siberia to great rock 'n' roll music from all over the world. This globalisation of music makes Tomsk just as likely to be the origin of the next great rock band as New York or London. Anton is joined by three Tomsk natives, drummer Yuri Kustov, bassist Yuri Latipov and guitarist Denis Ivashkov. The band's style is a clever amalgam of opposing elements. They deftly weave together the heavy riffing of their rhythm section and flashy, melodic lead guitars. The band are also known for their versatility with different performance styles, playing both raging electric concerts and intimate acoustic gigs. The other two tracks on Two Chords' EP fit in with the band's plan to make simple songs that rock. 'Y Should I Care' is a funny rant about a certain youth fashion afflicting Russia as much as everywhere else. "This is about a young girl who trying to act like someone she is not," Anton says. "Being so impressed with those photos of Suicide Girls she forgot how to be yourself." 'Promises We've Made' is a more emotional number, also based on personal experience. The song is about how the end of a passionate relationship leaves you barely on speaking terms with someone with whom you were once incredibly close. Two Chords are currently working on material for their first full-length album, but if you want to get with this rising force in rock from the very beginning, check out the Y Should I Care EP on their Myspace, Facebook or web pages.

Dissociative Identity Volume 1 By Ariana Receives Strong International Support

Within days of the independent release from Ariana titled Dissociative Identity volume 1, a highly entrenched fanbase shows their love and support of the album by pushing Ariana quickly through the ranks of the reverbnation charts to number 10 in the Tampa, Fl local market. Performing since the age of 14, Ariana has amassed a catalog of 100+ songs that she penned. It was this vast body of work that spawned the Dissociative Identity album concept along with a Super Heroine comic book that is in production. Ariana's music encompasses multiple genre making her music persona multiple personalities. Dissociative identity disorder (DID, also known as multiple personality disorder is a psychiatric diagnosis whose essential the presence of two or more distinct identities or personality states...that recurrently take control of behavior. The diagnosis requires that at least two personalities routinely take control of the individual's behavior. In tuning her craft, Ariana has touched on every genre and morphs into different personalities for each session. No Genre is safe. Tootie - This is the nickname we call Ariana. In fact, it is the only name that she has been called since she was a baby. This character is bubbly, upbeat, has no negative bone in her body. She sees the positive in every thing and finds positive solutions to the worse scenarios although sometimes she can be easily fooled due to being naive about life and tricksters etc. Ariana - This is her legal real name. This is the character that is born with a silver spoon in her mouth and has not had to want for anything. She has always had things and it has made her kind of snobby. She reads incessantly and is ultra intelligent. She is sort of like a genius but because she is snobby she doesn't feel the need to prove anything to anyone. On the album Ariana represents all of the R&B ballads that she has done since she was 14 years old. ShaQuayla - This is the first part of Ariana's middle name. This is the character who wanted to be Ariana but she is so ghetto and hardcore that she warps that image and gets it all wrong. She knows about rules but doesn't care about them and will just take whatever the consequences of her actions are...good or bad. Her speech is the most ghetto and type cast sort of speech you can think of and she makes honest attempts to speak proper but it is comical in nature. On the album ShaQuayla represents the Club songs and raps that Ariana has done since she was 14 years old. Mi'Shon - This is the second part of Ariana's middle name. This character embraces mysticism and magic. As a kid she played games like Dungeons and Dragons and used a Quija board and tapped into the real essence of mysticism and magic. She is very ethereal and weird in her mannerisms and her logic and speech puts you in the mind of David Carradine in the tv show Kung Fu. On the album Mi'Shon represents the rock and roll and alternative and other genre songs that Ariana has done since she was 14 years old. The Dissociative Identity volume 1 album, and series, will directly support the highly anticipated release of the comic book - DIVA TEAM. It is an international effort that will amaze you. Only mailing list members are treated to updates and behind the scenes previews so to encourage your participation Ariana is giving away a free song to get you to sign up and then you will be part of the entrenched fanbase that is currently moving her up the indie charts. Get your free song here: ( ) The Dissociative Identity volume 1 album is streaming on Pandora Radio, available on itunes, itunes Japan, Amazon mp3, Amazon phsyical sales, and more.

Review: Americana/Folk Singer/Songwriter Brian Kalinec's Single "Nowhere At All"

Award-winning Houston, Texas based Americana/folk singer/songwriter Brian Kalinec's single, "Nowhere At All" from his new CD The Fence is a quality song that reflects on living life, and the things that matter - the simple things. Encouraging us not to take anything for granted, the song is beautifully composed and arranged, and features a nice small string section, and lyrical solo violin. There's steel string guitar with a beautiful finger style, and tasteful use of a shaker and percussion. The mix is not in your face, and the lead vocal weaves the lyrics with solid harmonies along with 2 other singers. The female's voice compliments the lead singer nicely. The drums keep it flowing tightly with a great arrangement. "Nowhere At All" is the kind of song that you'll want to listen to repeatedly, and will definitely pique your interest in hearing the full CD. This one is both musically and lyrically strong, and is solid throughout. Email:
