The New Black 7 Release "God Willin' And The Creek Don't Rise" EP

NB7 Also become the First Monster Energy Endorsed Country Act as well as a Feature Band in One of the Country's Largest New Years Eve Television Broadcasts

(Cedar Rapids, IA – December 9, 2014) – The New Black 7, fresh off their Fall 2014 Tour, are saving the best of 2014 for last as well as kicking off 2015 in a big way. Today, the band announces the release of their latest EP, "God Willin' And The Creek Don't Rise" (Route 3 Records/Carson Entertainment) and after a full summer of recording, the end-result comes at a time when Country Music is finding its roots. The album is truly a unique brand of country rock that is both melodically and lyrically irresistible while maintaining a high level of musicianship and soloing worthy of any classic rock album of yore. Book ended by the conceptual intro/outro of the title track, the first single "Fine Wine" melds country's flair for danceable rhythms with relatable storytelling.

Born out of respected rock journeymen and heralded session players, The New Black 7 was founded by lead vocalist/guitarist Tory Stoffregen and guitarist Jason K. Herman who were soon joined by drummer Brentt James Acrement and rounded out by bassist Dan Dryden. Their direction grew out of an organic love of country music's gloried past along with their admiration of current country crossovers like Blackberry Smoke and Eric Church. "God Willin' And The Creek Don't Rise" is a follow-up to 2012's "Heartbreaks And Hangovers", yielding the single "Crazy All Over Me", which garnered substantial radio and video play.

"God Willin'" was recorded at Shell Rock, Iowa's Chandler Limited Studios, in which the band utilized former Abbey Road studio gear to help give their sound a rich, beefy, vintage meets modern production. Co-produced with Wade Goeke, the band was able to blend hard-hitting country killers with a bit of somber moments while retaining continuity throughout the recording. Their blood line of rock and roll came into full effect with many of the tracks retaining a classic rock vibe throughout, yet "God Willin'" is knee deep in Southern blues, Midwest electric swing and stone cold Country twang all held together with Stoffregen's distilled voice and stout harmonies. "We're ecstatic about the future," states Stoffregen. "With every show, every relationship we build with fans and those in the industry and every recording – things are falling into place in the right way, at the right time for us."

In addition, the band has landed an endorsement agreement with Monster Energy, the world's leading energy drink and lifestyle brand, that makes The New Black 7 the FIRST country act brought on board by Monster Energy - as the brand looks to expand its reach into popular music including rock, hip-hop, electronic, comedy and country. This deal will further help the band establish itself and win the attention of new fans while allowing Monster Energy to reach a substantial demographic for their product and lifestyle features.

With "God Willin' And The Creek Don't Rise" coming out prior to the new year The New Black 7 is fittingly starting off 2015 with a bang and in a huge number of households. The band was chosen to take part in Big D NYE celebration for Dallas, TX based WFAA-TV (ABC Affiliate) performing two tracks in-studio to be aired during the broadcast that will hit nearly 8 million homes in the region, 40,000 fans at the event – via Victory Plaza's big screens - and in over 30 additional markets in the U.S. It's a huge opportunity that will allow first time listeners a chance to hear their raucous country styling including the aforementioned track "Fine Wine" which attracted producers to the band.

A new EP, video, significant pre-promotion via Big D NYE and a Monster Energy endorsement deal means that The New Black 7 will now become married to the road as February 2015 sees the band starting a Midwest and Southern tour finishing in New Orleans before plotting runs to the West and East and all points between. With a healthy dose of work ethic, many hours in the studio while maintaining a healthy concert schedule; the real work is about to begin for The New Black 7…….."God Willin' And The Creek Don't Rise".

Hip Hop Artist QUE QNA Releases New Single Don't Hurt Me From His Highly Anticipated Release Love Of The Game Due 2-2-2015

Hip Hop Artist QUE QNA Releases New Single DON'T HURT ME From the Highly Anticipated release LOVE OF THE GAME Due 2-2-2015

Dateline: L.A.

Global Hip Hop phenom in the making QUE QNA has released a new single DON'T HURT ME worldwide that is receiving rave reviews, airplay & video play worldwide. The NY born, Texas & Vegas based artist is turning heads for his lyrical ability & substance, bold style & charismatic performances. The DON'T HURT ME track, produced by acclaimed European producers SMITH MUSIX, is being played on radio stations, by club DJs & major online sites. The video was shot in Austin Texas while the artist was performing in the Lone Star state.

QUE QNE describes what the song's all about "'Don't Hurt Me' in a nutshell was a futuristic vision of my life being played out in my mind with a girl I just met, and weighing the pros and cons of the rare chance it actually happens with a boastful, sexual and comedic twist." Further explaining what sets him apart in today's marketplace & what he's all about "I think what sets me apart is my ability to go far right then far left musically, and it still have a genuine feel, being as though I where so many different hats in real life, i try to convey that in my music. Having a wide range as far creating music, I think, is one of the most difficult things for most artist. People tend to put artist in categories and expect only that style from you and are disappointed if they don't get that particular sound, but being able to fit in multiple categories or creating a new category gives me the ability to create what I feel without fear of being held to one style."

Taken from his forthcoming EP release "LOVE OF THE GAME" to be released worldwide on 2-2-2 015 (February 2) on the ATTAIN label, through INDIEPOWER & INGROOVES. INDIEPOWER is spearheading a global campaign to bring QUE QNA to the industry & music lovers everywhere.

INDIEPOWER CEO & industry leader JAY WARSINSKE has assembled a great team to build on Film / TV / Games / Commercials, International Markets (including Europe, Australia, Japan, Canada & Latin America), & Publishing areas (aligning with HARMONIOUS MUSIC through MADELEINE SMITH – credits include running Publishing for DR.DRE, 2PAC, EAZY-E, BONE THUGS, ICE CUBE among many). Tours being booked & appearances at industry hotspots SXSW, IES : INDIE ENTERTAINMENT SUMMIT in L.A. in August, WARPED TOUR, BET AWARDS, Spring Break concerts, Summer Tour stops & much more to be announced.

"To have the powerhouses INDIEPOWER, INGROOVES & MADELINE SMITH MUSIC on my side is honestly flattering", states QUE, "knowing how long all 3 have been in the game and there over all knowledge of business and there track records speak for themselves - so being a new artist supported by these guys is very flattering and really strengthens belief in myself and my team at Attain Media Group that we're going in the right direction!"

"Having been a part of breaking iconic artists since the mid-70's & since Hip Hop was born, "says INDIEPOWER & IES Founder JAY WARSINSKE, "you get a instinctual sense on who's the 'Real Deal' and have the talent & mindset to have a chance in this incredibly demanding & complex entertainment business - & QUE has that 'It' factor! Seeing him grow & build in the world's expanding markets & opportunities will be a lot of fun!"

Indie Act Automatik Eden Garner Rave Reviews For Both Ep And Video With Their New Release "Gold To Straw"

Produced by Sean Beavan (NIN, Gwen Stefani), Automatik Eden Follow-up Their Self-titled CD with a Strong New Video and Five Song EP

Los Angeles, CA – One doesn't have to work in the music business to know how competitive and difficult it can be navigating the constant flux of an industry that is ever-changing.

Many musicians are looking for a way to carve a path into a trade that is relentless. Of course it only makes sense that the best way to gain notoriety is to have the necessary talent to do so. Fortunately Cela Scott and David Crocco of Automatik Eden possess that rare talent.

Add to this mix the creative abilities of a top-notch producer such as Sean Beavan and you have a sensation waiting to happen!

Cela and David also have strong credentials. Cela (composer, vocalist, guitar) attended the esteemed University of Southern California's BFA Acting program and landed a spot in the coveted conservatory school.

Her acting and singing career has taken her to many a featured role including a principal part in the latest pilot for the Star Trek series, Star Trek: Renegades. It should also be noted that AE's captivating tune, "Captain of My Soul" is the title track for the project.

Besides being a gifted instrumentalist and song-writer, David (vocals, guitar, bass, drums) has also worked behind the scenes…his post-production engineering skills have been utilized by many a music icon including the likes of Dr. Dre, Busta Rhymes, Nickelback and System Of A Down.

Whilst listening to the beautiful lyricism of "Gold to Straw" one might be tempted to make comparisons to other impressive female performers – a little Chrissie Hynde mixed with a touch of Lana Del Rey – but make no mistake, Automatik Eden's music is distinctly their own. Just ask the well-known Los Angeles music magazine, Music Connection.

The journal stated: "In the dreamy, eerie outing, mixed by Sean Beavan (NIN), you can practically hear the song in a David Fincher soundtrack. AE seem to have the potential to exceed their influences."

The accompanying video for "Gold To Straw" is also considered somewhat of a work of art. Filmed by acclaimed director, Christopher Jelley ("La Nature Morte d'Un Flic"), the sensual and dreamy atmosphere is a throwback to the golden era of European film directors such as Bertolucci, De Sica and Fassbinder.

Cela and David sum things up well, by saying: "The common thread to the artists we love is that they found a way to be original and approach their music more as an art form than a formula. That is our tactic." states David. Cela adds, "The music and musicians we admire had a vision and expressed a way of life…a certain freedom on a higher level."

The two strive to keep an open dialogue with their audience. They make a sincere effort not only to provoke and test, but to inspire. With their strong musical foundation and great perspective, success for Automatik Eden can only be just around the corner.

Their CD is available on iTunes. Official web site:
