Ground Wire Music Opens for Business

Jason Mozersky and Jesse Ingalls, Grammy award-winning members of Ben Harper's band Relentless 7, have launched their new boutique music writing and production company, GroundWire Music. Based in Los Angeles, GroundWire Music will have its focus on writing, creating, and producing original content for film, television, advertising, and brand partnerships.

A native of San Antonio based in Austin, Texas, Mozersky played and recorded for many years with numerous rock bands, including Stevie Ray Vaughan's band Double Trouble. Composer Ingalls, a native of Washington D.C., studied classical and jazz music at the University of Texas in Austin, where the pair's musical collaboration began. They were mainstays in the blossoming Austin indie rock scene of the 2000s, and have been writing and performing together ever since. In 2008, Ingalls, Mozersky and drummer Jordan Richardson, joined forces with Ben Harper to form a new band, Relentless 7.

The talented founders of GroundWire have worked in studios and shared the stage with luminaries including Ben Harper, Eddie Vedder, Jackson Browne, Natalie Maines and Ringo Starr. Their work with Harper as lead guitarist and bassist in Relentless 7 has resulted in five world tours and six studio albums including Dixie Chick, Natalie Maines' critically acclaimed solo album Mother. They were awarded the Grammy for co-producing and performing on Harper's Best Blues Album of 2013, Get Up! with harmonica legend, Charlie Musselwhite.

Earlier this year, GroundWire Music teamed up with LA-based music supervisor, Lindsay Fellows (The Imitation Game). Together they produced national spots for the CBS EcoMedia campaign, Viewers to Volunteers. Mozersky and Ingalls wrote original material for the campaign, which currently is being aired on CBS television and numerous additional social media platforms. Fellows holds out great promise for GroundWire Music, stating "I've been blessed to have been able to work with so many great composers, but it's always exciting to find new artists with a fresh sound. I believe that these guys have all the ingredients that it takes to be incredibly successful."

GroundWire is currently working on a global project for Red Bull Media House, creating and producing original music for Red Bull films and television. Other credits include co-writing various songs used by the NFL, the television drama House, and cosmetic makeup giant, Mary Kaye.

L'illon Releases CD, Warrior Angel Instrumental: Love Frequency, To Promote Feel Good Music

Music artist L'illon has just released her newly transposed CD now retitled, Warrior Angel Instrumental: LOVE FREQUENCY, showcasing her signature Lucid Pop sound in an instrumental 528 Hertz frequency.

The uniqueness of this album not only lies in L'illon's ability for composition of feel good music but also highlights the frequency at which this album is set, namely the solfeggio and Fibonacci number 528 - dubbed the Love Frequency.

The Love frequency is the "Miracle" note of the original Solfeggio musical scale. Research has shown that this core frequency was used in the past by high- priests and healers in ancient civilizations to manifest change and produce abundance.

According to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, a Harvard grad and award winning author, "the 528 Hz is a frequency that is central to the musical mathematical matrix of creation. More than any sound previously discovered, the "LOVE frequency" resonates at the heart of everything. Furthermore, this frequency is reported on having a healing effect on one's damaged DNA". Accordingly, biochemist Steve Chemiski mentions, that the 6-sided clear clusters that support the DNA double helix vibrate at a specific resonant frequency - 528 cycles per second.

Now taking science into account, L'illon's album not only produces a great modern vibe but also has a positive and healing effect on the full spectrum; the mind, spirit and body.

In listening to L'illon's LOVE FREQUENCY album, one can be renewed, reenergized and rejuvenated by her music while driving in a car, relaxing at a spa, flying on an airplane or exercising at a health club. All venues around the globe, from yoga studios to cinemas can now enjoy L'illon's 528 Hz music.

L'illon's LOVE FREQUENCY album will be available exclusively online in 240 countries worldwide, 21 online stores and via

London Producer FR333STAR Unveils Hot New Single Via 5howtime Music

The enigmatic FR333STAR is a solo production/performing artist making forward club-derived music out of the U.K. Belonging to a new generation of beat makers – who, thanks to being weaned on the Internet has learned from the best of dance-music history and then reshaped it into the image of now.

Today the progressive house producer has released his pulsating new single “Spirit”. A fusion of future house synths, pulsating basslines and snares, the new single is an ode to the summertime opening parties.

In FR333STAR’s universe, lush house soundscapes do battle with the speaker-shuddering rumble of contemporary dance floor bass and timeless spirit.

So, behind the evocative beats and the imagery, just who is FR333STAR? Based in London, he’s been producing for a little over 10years and is currently signed to 5howtime Music. More info via the social links below.

Love Jones – A Modern Love Story Of Conceptz

R&B duo Conceptz released a new music video on their most prominent single "Love Jones"

Like many other Rap/R&B music videos, Conceptz' clip on their prominent single "Love Jones" has every element to a hit music video: LA sunshine + mansion + luxury sports car + hot ladies… Unlike many other Rap/R&B music videos, "Love Jones" tells a love story in a modern way that leaves people feeling romantic without presenting too many erotic scenes.

In 2011, two brothers from Orange County, New York formed the hip-hop based duo Conceptz. In 2014, their single "Love Jones" has reached #17 on the Billboards Hot Singles Chart. Months later, trying to strike their fans' hearts again, the brothers come up with a brand new visual to go along their most sought after song.

The video expresses many stages of romantic relationships from distinctive angles of two men: from flirtation, passion, love to intimacy. It discovers different forms of affection ---- and there's no right or wrong way to fall in love, because in the war of love, no one is a winner. In the end of the video, the picture cuts off suddenly, where it leaves the audience wondering many possible endings of the story.

Southern Rock Act To Release New Single

Outlaws & Moonshine the Indiana based southern rock artist is set to release their debut single and video titled 'WHISKEY' on May 12th. The single will be distributed digitally and is already available for pre-order across all major digital platforms. The video will be released through Marvment Entertainment and Vevo.

Hailing as 'new southern rock', their signature sound comes from vocalist/guitarist and main songwriter Beau Van who crafts his songs after everyday life experiences. Beau’s unique approach is to use a balance of old school southern rock with a bit of today’s country rock and a whole lot of guitar. The end results are strong yet memorable songs that hook you and have you singing right along by the second chorus.

The band has recently aligned themselves with major industry players solidifying their brand by signing a sponsorship deal with Coldcock Whiskey in which Coldcock states; "We love you guys and would love to have you work with us".

Outlaws and Moonshine also has endorsement deals with Amedia Cymbals, Pig Hog Cables, Queen City Drums, Spector Guitars, and Xcel Drumsticks.

The band heads back into the studio to finish up their debut E.P. later this month with plans to support the release with a summer tour. Outlaws & Moonshine are in talks with a national country artist to tour as direct support.

Cabinet Of Millionaires' Mix Of Politics And Music

David Cameron talks bullshit on a music video? Yes that's right. In the UK electro rock group Cabinet of Millionaires' new same name single music video, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom was made into a paper puppet and the first words come out of his creepily-cut mouth are heart-pounding: "bullshit lies, revolting, revolting. I won't sit by and watch this unfolding..."

Cabinet of Millionaires make their political view very clear in both their lyrics and the music video, and question about Cameron's statement in his first speech delivered at 10 Downing Street that "those that can [be more responsible] should, and those who can't we will always help". The blend of its blunt yet effective lyrics and the sarcastic video of the political figure puppet putting on a show makes this video the perfect musical entertainment of the current affair.

According to dance music veteran Eddie Gordon (BBC Essential mix / Pete Tong), Cabinet of Millionaires is "the kind of dance track that DJ's like Andy Weatherall would turn people onto or the Talking Heads would delight the New York uber cool clubs with. Great intro on the ‘I've Heard Enough Mix' like the opening of a Doors track"

Cabinet of Millionaires will be released on May 4th, just three days before the UK Election Day. FREE DOWNLOAD (or name your price) from

Lou Ruiz To Perform With TV Star Piper Curda At 'Tween Stars Live' Events in Canada in May

Singer-songwriter Lou Ruiz announced he will be performing live with TV star & singer Piper Curda at two upcoming "Tween Stars Live" Events in Canada May 2nd and 3rd. Piper is best known as "Jasmine" on the Disney Channel TV sitcom "I Didn't Do It". Lou will accompany Piper with acoustic guitar and vocals for her performances in Montreal May 2nd and in Ottawa May 3rd.

The young Houston based singer-songwriter has a sound compared to the style of popular Americana singer-songwriters like Ed Sheeran & John Mayer. Lou Ruiz delivers a unique soulful folk-rock experience. Lou collaborated with Grammy nominated producer Billy Smiley (Johnny Cash, Bebe and Cece Winans) on his latest EP, "The Screen Door". Lou has a beautiful, soulful voice that resonates the heartfelt emotions of his beautiful, self-penned original songs on "The Screen Door". From the edgy strong licks of "Nowhere Train" to the ethereal "Meet Me Here", Lou's Americana songs offer many incredible journeys and musical experiences.

The 25-year old Texas native who studied songwriting and voice at the prestigious Songwriting School of Los Angeles under the tutelage of Rob Seals and had the privilege of learning from hit writers like John Keller (songwriter for Rickie Lee Jones, Aaron Neville, Al Green, Etta James, and Wynonna), Phil Cody (songwriter with Neil Sedaka, Huey Lewis), and Ryan Toby (songwriter for Usher, Will Smith) is excited to be performing again live with the talented Piper Curda.

"I love getting to sing with Piper," says Lou Ruiz. "I'm still trying to find something she's not good at. We usually sing in front of a camera for YouTube, so getting to play in front of an audience together is a real treat. I'm excited to be playing another 'Tween Stars Live' event with her. The last one we did was so much fun!"

After the Canadian shows, Lou will return to the U.S. and kick off a 9-week summer concert tour of Young Life Camps in North Carolina and Colorado performing live for thousands of high school teens at the popular private lifestyle retreats.

Fans can visit for more details and his latest news and tour information.

10 Months, 10 Electronic Music Releases By Worldwide Groove Corporation

As their Year of the Groove approaches the last few months, Worldwide Groove Corporation have stayed true to their commitment of putting out one new music release a month for a year starting in July 2014. Their April release, "Until I Have You", is a ballad of everlasting love and devotion to the divine, featuring seedy guitars and dramatic horn hits over a swaggering mid-tempo groove. Topped off with Ellen Tift's emotional vocal, this track is packed with desperation, and according to many, a perfect song for the next James Bond film.

Keeping up with these consecutive monthly releases is no small feat considering that all of this is just a side project to the mainstay of what Worldwide Groove Corporation do for their clients. Ellen Tift and Kurt Goebel formed Worldwide Groove Corporation in 2001 as a music production company, composing and producing music for advertising, doing remixes, string arranging, and artist development. They didn't do their own artist venture until 2005 when they put out a partial release of what was later completed in 2007, the "Chillodesiac Lounge" album featuring their electronic reconstructions of famous jazz standards. This release landed them on terrestrial and internet radio, international downtempo compilations, retail playlists, and store shelves across the US.

Following the release of that project, WGC stayed busy with their music production work for clients while slowly amassing a collection of songs slated for their own future album, but time passed as other deadlines kept pushing back their available time to work on their own artist releases. Unsatisfied with their slow pace, in a bold move, WGC made the decision to commit to putting out one new music release a month for a year, calling it "The Year of the Groove".

"Deciding to put out one new release a month for a year solved a lot of our problems," says Ellen Tift, songwriter, producer, and singer for WGC. "It gave us a series of deadlines we would need to meet in order to stay on track, so we absolutely had to finish the songs, and it also allowed us to put out music that wasn't cohesive enough to be on one album." Since WGC do work for other projects besides their own, the music they create covers a broader spectrum than what is typically released by bands. "Sometimes we need to produce a track that is electro-pop, and sometimes we write a song that is epic electronic chillout music, so this series of releases has allowed us to get all of those songs through the digital pipeline in a way that makes sense," says Tift.

However, as WGC began this year long endeavor, they quickly became aware of how much they had undertaken on top of their normal work load. "Our other work for our clients hasn't slowed down, and in fact, we've had to take on more work because putting out these monthly releases is expensive and it's all out of our pocket," says Kurt Goebel, programmer and producer for WGC. "I think we will both be glad to take a break when we put out our last Year of the Groove release in June."

Worldwide Groove Corporation do plan to release a physical CD containing some of their Year of the Groove songs and some new material at a future date. To stay informed or contact WGC, go to their website at and join the mailing list.

ABOUT WGC: Worldwide Groove Corporation are Kurt Goebel and Ellen Tift, specializing in electronic pop and downtempo chillout music production, string arranging, and remixes. Their music has been featured on national television shows, in independent films, and used in major brand advertising campaigns in the U.S. and Europe. Both members of WGC have a Master of Music degree in Media Writing and Production from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL. See their full bios on their website.
