Kwame Binea Shakedown Announce Second Single/Video, "Hang On"

Harlem-based roots rock singer/songwriter Kwame Binea, who fronts the Kwame Binea Shakedown, has announced the worldwide digital release of their second single, "Hang On" for Tuesday, June 16, 2015 via and all their major digital distribution partners including iTunes and

"Hang On" is catchy, upbeat, funk/rock/soul dance song layered with a poignant, hopeful and uplifting universal message that encourages "little brothers to hang on."

It was co-written and produced by Kwame Binea and guitarist Justin Wilcox for Binea's indie imprint, Pelopos Entertainment Group. The song also features the rest of Shakedown band, drummer Medley Shabazz, guitarist Art Vanterpool, bassist Phil Bass, Daron Wright on keyboards, Kengo Yamada and Michael Quigley on saxophone, Brian Varneke on trumpet, and guest background vocalists Dietrice Bolden and Jindai Joseph.

The video meshes live performance footage with compelling images that accentuate the broader symbolism and inspiration behind the song. The video was edited by Kate Peterson.

"I really wanted to create an anthem-like track to encourage young brothers to keep their heads up and never stop believing in themselves," explains Binea. "These are tough times and a lot of our young people are a bit lost and aren't getting the level of support they need. So, just trying to give them some of the same kind of positive reinforcement and encouragement I received growing up," he added.

"Hang On" follows the group's debut single/video "Let Go" (released in April). The video was culled from a Kwame Binea Shakedown live performance at the Brooklyn Bowl earlier this year.

Binea grew up splitting time in West London (his birth place) and in his native origins, Ghana. He later moved to Cherry Hill, NJ as a teenager where he started to unearth his artistic aspirations as a burgeoning songwriter/singer/guitarist. While in college he teamed up with guitarist/vocalist Justin Wilcox as a duo, which became the nucleus that spawned the rock/funk collective Kwame Shakedown in Harlem, NY (2011). Over the past several years they have built a legion of loyal fans performing at most of the city's most noted music venues including Joe's Pub, Arlene Grocery, Rockwood Music Hall and Brooklyn Bowl, to name just a few.

The Kwame Binea Shakedown will also be releasing their self-titled debut EP July 17.

Worldwide Groove Corporation Collaborate With EDM Producer Portarius For Upcoming Release

In their final installment of their Year of the Groove, where they have put out one new music release a month for a year, Worldwide Groove Corporation are incorporating the talents of up-and-coming EDM producer Portarius into the mix. Their June release which will feature 5 entirely different versions of their song "Make Me Free" will include one melodic dubstep remix of the track produced solely by Portarius.

"This next release is unlike any of our previous releases in that we will put out five different versions of the same song at once, four of which we produced ourselves and one produced by Portarius," says Kurt Goebel, producer and programmer for Worldwide Groove Corporation. The four versions of the song produced by Worldwide Groove Corporation will mainly stay within their established sound as electronic music producers, ranging from downtempo chillout to deep house to electro, and the fourth incarnation departs from the electronica world in the form of a piano ballad with solo cello. "This project shows the scope of what we do and has been in the works for a long time. We are so glad to be able to end our Year of the Groove with this collection of tracks," says Goebel.

Worldwide Groove Corporation first became acquainted with Portarius while he was a commercial music major at Belmont University, and their electronic music connection became apparent very quickly. "Portarius played me the remix he had done of Kimbra's song "Settle Down", which had won a remix competition, and from the quality of his work, I could tell that he was someone we would be glad to collaborate with on our tracks," says Ellen Tift, songwriter and vocalist for WGC. "We aren't concerned with the fact that he is currently relatively unknown, we made this decision solely on his amazing talent, we absolutely love what he has done with this song, and we hope he gets some good exposure from this release."

"Make Me Free" is the 12th consecutive monthly music release by WGC, and the first of the series to have utilized the production skills of anyone else. "Worldwide Groove Corporation produces a sound unlike any artist I have ever worked with, and it was an invigorating experience to be able to produce my own interpretation of “Make Me Free” for them," says Portarius. "I was so thankful and excited for the chance to bring this song out of one sonic world and into another. WGC’s unique sound is perfect for this kind of remix, and I’m so thankful to have been able to work with them on this, and for the chance to share this track with the world." Portarius is currently working on various electronic music projects while also working full time in the music industry.

Worldwide Groove Corporation have made instrumental and vocal stems of their previous electronic music releases available to remixers on various digital music outlets and through their own website.

Peirson Live on Trip

Peirson will embark on a 900 km North Eastern canoe tour from Georgian Bay to Montreal with filmmaker/adventurer Frank Wolf and Peirson's band (+ guest musicians TBA) joining on dates including; Nature's Harmony EcoLodge in Mattawa, a fundraiser for EcoJustice in-store at Patagonia in Toronto and Dakota Tavern's Hayloft Dancehall show in Picton, ON. The tour begins June 3rd with an intimate show recorded live at The Painted Lady in the heart of Ossington village in downtown Toronto. The tour will celebrate the release of Peirson's latest album Wild Ones and pay homage to the very essence of Canada - the wilderness. Like modern day Voyageurs, Peirson and Frank will travel by canoe on the same water veins as the First Nations did when they populated the lands 10,000 years ago.

Peirson refers to the Wild Ones as a homesick project that prompted him to reconnect with his roots. Written in his New York apartment. Peirson plays each of the 20+ instruments himself and also designed and created the beautiful artwork. Each tile on the cover holds a paper-cut image of one of sixteen endangered species of Canada, and along with the songs, he intends for them to “represent the ten provinces, three territories and three oceans that reside within these fragile habitats.” Peirson's aim was to marry “art, music, and nature in an album dedicated to wildlife and to those living the wild life."


Frank Wolf is a Canadian filmmaker, adventurer, writer and environmentalist. He is known for films documenting wilderness expeditions around the world, with a focus on the Canadian North. His expeditions include being the first to canoe across Canada in one season and cycling 2,000 km in winter on the Yukon River from Dawson to Nome. His films include The Hand of Franklin, Kitturiaq, On the Line, Mammalian, and Borealis, all of which broadcast on CBC's documentary channel in Canada. In 2012 he was named one of Canada's Top Ten Adventurers by Explore Magazine, and in 2015 he was named One of Canada's Top 100 Explorers by Canadian Geographic Magazine.

Thanks to Ecojustice for fighting the good fight and to our sponsors Vasque, Norquay Paddles and Abitbi & Co. for your support.

Cashavelly Morrison Releases Debut Single 'Long-Haired Mare'

Americana folk singer and songwriter Cashavelly Morrison has released her first single "Long-Haired Mare". The song is a beautiful, atmospheric ballad with raw and painful lyrics. Paired with Morrison's bright and melodic voice, it forms a powerful contrast, giving the song much depth.

According to Morrison, she wanted to write a song about a mother who saves her daughter from abuse, but is ultimately punished for it. Being interested in systems of a family and the normalization of certain roles within the family, Morrison explores these themes in her lyrics.

Together with her husband Ryan MacLeod, who plays the guitar and composes music around Morrison's melodies, they form a folk duo with strong Americana atmosphere.

Her music blends the sounds of traditional American roots along with Appalachian ballads, deriving inspiration from her years of growing up in a coal mining town in West Virginia. For her, music is a way to address to racial prejudices in the U.S and the need for equal rights for women and children.

Cashavelly Morrison is currently working on her debut album The Kingdom Belongs to a Child, which will be out in September.

THIRSTY - Quireboys Founder And British Rock Musician, Guy Bailey, Launched The Eponymous Debut Album THIRSTY

THIRSTY - British Rock with a Twist. Shaken and Stirred.

Quireboys Founder and inspirational songwriter, Guy Bailey, launched the eponymous debut album from his brand new project THIRSTY.

Produced by legendary Rolling Stones collaborator, Chris Kimsey, the album is grounded in the classic British Rock tradition.

The inspiration for the album derived from unique songwriting collaboration between Guy and a Russian Poet Irina D. Irina's poems provided the original lyrical concept and idea for each song, which Guy then adapted, shaped and set to music. Each of the ten songs tells the listener a story – mostly true and from the darker side of life – in three minutes or less.

The project gained significant momentum with the support of Chris Kimsey, whose unique gifts and sensibilities helped to shape the tracks into a complete and finished body of work. And the result is a great British album grounded in the classic pop/rock format with thematic elements from prog, arthouse, psychedelic and alternative music.

The album was recorded with the help of some of England's most accomplished rock musicians, including: Simon Hanson, drums (Death in Vegas, Squeeze); Chris Johnstone, bass and keyboards (The Quireboys); Lynne Jackaman, backing vocals (Saint Jude).

"Fantastic Album! Thirsty's dark beats and darker stories get you hooked and leave you wanting more" - Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones, INXS, Peter Tosh).

"Gloriously disheveled" - Phil Alexander (Editor-in-Chief, MOJO).

The album "Thirsty" is now available digitally (on iTunes, Amazon and other major platforms) and on CD with exclusive brochure as well as limited signed edition and can be ordered via Thirsty's website

Thirsty's latest videos, including for its last single, Flawless, are also available on its website.
