JOHN JUSTISE, from Chicago IL, has managed to unwillingly stay under the radar for quite some time. This year, however, will be his breakthrough year; with some attractive imaginative work, none more so than his newest release/album ‘Continuity’.

As the album’s title suggests, John is continuing on his own musical journey, moving forward, through challenges and new experiences, both the good and the bad.

Quoting key musical influencers as the likes of The Neptunes, Stevie Wonder, Flying Lotus and Michael Jackson, it’s of no surprise that John’s Continuity album features an eclectic palette of colorful sounds, including R&B, Electronica and Jazz fusion.

Big things are in store for John and it won't be long before until he’s sharing more great music with the world.

The Satisfactors are four musicians from four rock n’roll bands who came together to make this awesome album.

The album includes 12 tracks co written by Gar Francis (also known as co writer and producer of Mark Lindsay’s latest rock album Life Out Loud) and Bruce Ferguson. The ultimate Rock N Roll album that you would think that was made back in the glory days of Rock n’ Roll. Each track captures the feel and mood of those good old days. This is a masterpiece that must be heard.

Review for Track#6 (The Single released earlier this year) “Johnny Commando”: “A wonderful ride back to New York City’s 1970′s punk heyday. Bruce Ferguson (The Easy Outs) delivers awesome vocals, with inflections and nuances that remind me of Joey Ramone. The guitar is simple, yet driving, with a dynamite riff and solo. The chorus is fabulous, driving me to rock and bop as I listened. The harmonies are perfectly punk, the transitions amazing, and the hook kills. Produced by Kurt Reil (The Gripweeds) and Jersey’s godfather of garage, Gar Francis, what else should I have expected? Review by Bobby Gottesman – Can’t Believe My Earz, Toronto, Canada.

Candela Music Release Feel-Good Music Video “So Natural”

There’s nothing quite like a calm ocean, a chill breeze wafting through the air, and being in the company of your most beloved friends. The atmosphere only adds to the genuine, organic feeling of happiness when all of the things you love come together; it’s almost as if it’s only natural.

That’s the mood Reggae inspired, Hip-Hop band Candela Music implores with their latest song and music video “So Natural”. A blend of laid back guitar riffs and smooth vocals leads up to the soothing and tranquil vibe of being in tune with positive energy and just having a good time. The song itself has a nice Hip-Hop groove to it whilst adding different elements form other genres that don’t take over the song, much like how the music video only compliments to the feel of “So Natural”.

The video begins with the lead singer in the back of a convertible jamming out on his guitar and singing the melodies of a good time. As the car swooshes by the tall, beautiful palm trees and the bright, blue sky, he’s accompanied by his friends with Cheshire cat smiles ready to take a load off and ready to have fun. The trip quickly transitions on to the beach, where the group and their friends proceed to have a quick jam session and enjoy a spirited game of football. As the group lays back and chill, the rapper of Candela Music, spits his cool flow over the beat as he proceeds to instruct the listener what he’s all about and what makes him happy. He then is quickly picked up by his friends to take him to where the real fun is at; at the beach!

The video concept is light-hearted and story driven. However the intricacies involved with making this video aren’t so simple. A lot of scenery a mass a large portion of the video, but “So Natural” uses interesting camera angles to really highlight the beauty of the atmosphere. Included within the ambience too are interesting filters that add a certain “warm” quality to them, increasing it’s artistic merit.

Overall Candela Music’s video for “So Natural” really is that natural, perfectly demonstrating what the band is all about and giving a positive message to it’s viewers. Without a doubt “So Natural” is a beach party anthem, or at least a feel good song to get anyone in right frame of mind to have a good time and let your worries wash away in the shoes of a relaxing beach.

Being in that environment makes it easier to be creative and get in the zone."

Howell created a state-of-the-art recording studio in his house utilizing every room as space for recording and having purchased a customized soundboard previously owned by Limp Bizkit. "Overall, the sound of the album really turned out the way I had envisioned, and I'm very thankful to have been the producer and engineer."

Be Myself, Anti-Bullying Song, By Indie Artist Craymo

Indie singer/songwriter Craymo from Orlando, Florida releases his uplifting anti-bullying pop anthem Be Myself that gives you the courage to just be yourself no matter what anyone else thinks. Inspired by the sounds of Maroon 5, One Republic and Robbie Williams, Craymo gets the party started with an upbeat hand clapper that instantly puts you in a good mood and entices you into singing along!

Bullying is reaching epidemic numbers and awareness needs to be made to help young kids, teenagers and adults realize that words, taunting, ridiculing and physically harming another person is wrong and damaging to the person being bullied. Growing up gay Craymo was the victim of bullying many times in his young adult as well as his adult life. Being called names, being teased and being emotionally attacked eats away at the human psyche.

Research shows that half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years. More than 10% are bullied regularly. Over 30% of children with a food allergy have been bullied. Food allergies affect nearly three million children. Girls bully in groups more than boys do and though girls use more indirect emotional type of bullying, research indicates that girls are becoming more physical than they have in the past. There has been an alarming increase of children committing suicide as a result of bullying. Bullying occurs globally in schools everywhere, it’s not just a problem for the United States.

Obese children, people with learning disabilities, having health conditions, wearing glasses, physical disabilities, being gay, etc. are all targets for mean bullies. Gay teens are three times more likely than heterosexual teens to report being bullied. In contrast 80% of gay teens said they were less likely than heterosexuals to say they had bullied someone else. Every day over 160,00 skip school in fear that they will be bullied.

Craymo wanted to create a fun, inspirational and empowering song to embrace your individuality, there is no one else like you. You are unique, just Be Yourself.

Be Myself has been featured on the Independent Music Radio Network syndicated in over 35 countries and held for two weeks at #2 position on the Independent Mainstream Top 30 Chart. Be Myself is nominated for best Pop song 2014 Hollywood Music In Media Awards, September and has been selected for a featured spot on Al Walser’s Top 20 Countdown show syndicated globally. Be Myself was co-written by Craymo, Brandon Jarrett and Joshua Danyel of Moho Productions, LLC. The song was produced by Brandon Jarrett and Craymo for Moho Productions, LLC. Craymo is available for personal appearances, live performances and TV and Radio interviews.

Be Myself is available for purchase on Craymo’s website, iTunes and most digital download sites. The song is available for branding and licensing opportunities.

Award Winning Songwriter Introduces DARA

Award-winning songwriter, Benjamin Dara, is crafting a new and expansive sound with the introduction of his new band, DARA. After the release of his first album, "Single Flame", Ben imagined the next step in his music. Since the vision he had for the new sound required like-minded musicians, he found two to form a band with a unified message of peace. With this purpose, they are dedicated to improving the world through their music.

Many things set DARA apart from other bands, and Ben's three-and-a-half octave range backed by the rich vocal harmonies of the band is a good place to start. The Salt Lake Tribune stated that Ben's voice is "sublime and flexible", but this only scratches the surface. With the new-found vocal support of the other bandmates, the lyrics have reached new depths, as well as the added instruments such as violin, piano, bass, and drums.

The eclectic background the members of DARA come from might explain the diverse sound they've created. Drawing from musical influences such as rock, classical, jazz, gypsy, broadway, and even metal, their sound is just as unique as their personal histories.

Given his first guitar at age eleven, Benjamin Dara is also a web designer and entrepreneur, which shines through in his drive to succeed. Beyond that, his Persian background has influenced his music, poetry, and personal philosophy. Some say that his music speaks of a faraway land, and perhaps that contributes to his success with overseas audiences.

Kevin Hutson spent a year touring China as a bassist for an international circus, as well as playing piano and saxophone for a clown act. He also gigged every week playing big band music, which honed his skills as a performer. His technical abilities extend beyond his musicianship by being an accomplished juggler and skateboarder.

Drummer Squid Hampton has traveled across the world honing in on his craft. He draws many of his inspirations from the experiences he had in countries all over the world, including Thailand and Morocco. Now, Squid uses his worldly experience to spread his goal of peace and love through the music of DARA.

The anticipation for DARA's new album has been steadily growing over the past year. Since July they have been recording with Joel Pack at Rigby Roads Studio. Aside from producing Benjamin’s first album Single Flame Joel co-writes for Royal Bliss, and produces for various labels and agencies. The energy was especially electric in April 2014 when Benjamin's song, "Cracks of Life", spent a full month at the top of UK charts. Additionally, they've recently joined with Full Fidelity Management to further focus on their professional path. With so much passion DARA has a promising future on the horizon as they reach for 'heights of space'.
