Here is a Pre-Review by Michael McKenna for Nor'easter Entertainment Magazine from Allentown, PA. The USA.

The release opens with the beautiful Hungarian musician, Barbara Kiss, and her Dance/Pop/Rock track, "Catch Me", which has those vintage Gin Blossom's guitar riffs, an awesome hook and powerful vocals in the mold of a Susanna Hoffs mated to a pounding percussion. This track has multiple radio crossover possibilities and is a KILLER CUT!

Hailing from Halifax, Nova Scotia and now residing in L.A., International Award Winning Musician, Jon Mullane, kicks it into high gear with "Body Rock" where Jon says, "Turn it up", which is the only way to listen to this, LOUD! The slamming guitars and Jon's forceful vox. I could see this track being the anthem for Rock/Dancer-size outlets worldwide

Amycanbe calls Cervia, Italy home, delivers the alternative single, "Truth Be Told", where one can hear some Sinead O'Connor in her vocal deflections. This mid-tempo track is flavorful and has some interesting accompaniment. NICE!

Inches From Sin, featuring the talents of Robert Brewer and Karen Holloway, give it up with their track, "Murder" that has a cool retro R&B sound that takes the listener back in time. The individual solos and harmonies are spot on and done to perfection! The line, "I smell perfume and it ain't mine" sums it all up!

International singing sensations, Secret Lie, from Portugal, and their smash single, "Filling Spaces", takes one captive from the start with Sarah Madeira's hypnotizing vocals and the fantastic strings that give this a very full sound. The 7 core musicians along with 11 guest musicians give a remarkable performance! WOW!

Alternative/Punk/Garage rockers, Full Body Tones, a 3-piece kicking band from Lexington, Kentucky, comes at you with the snarling track, "King of the World", that features ripping guitars, pounding snare rides and an in-your-face attitude that should be a killer with the younger set worldwide. HOW COOL IS THAT!

We change things up a bit with Daniel Amadee, from the Big Easy, New Orleans, Louisiana, and his Folk/Rock genre track, "Don't Wanna Do It Again", which has a bit of a Smashing Pumpkins feel to the intro. Those unique vocals are captivating as is the simplicity of this tune! CATCHY!

Inches From Sin makes their 2 nd appearance with "Out of Reach", a funky blues based number that tells a story that has implications about what is happening in our country today. Love the retro guitar picking! UP FRONT & COOL!

Oxnard, California Christian/Rock band, Hizreturn, brings us a soulful track, "Forever More" that reaches back with a classic style updated with a retro/mod feel enhanced by the two-voice melodies. The keys with the leslie adds that depth and fat-sound to this track. VERY HEARTFELT!

The 3rd time around is the charm as Inches From Sin closes out this LP with "Move On", is a fun-sounding track that rocks you out from the door. Robert Brewer's vocals are strong and Karen Holloway adds nice harmonies as a compliment. The guitar's are talking BIGTIME!

These Bongo Boy Compilations just keep getting better with each issue. The listener can look forward to quality music each and every time. This is a MUST LISTEN! KUDOS!

Recently Released from the Feds, Former Playboy TV Producer Ken Francis Inks "Buckwild" YouTube Deal with Fullscreen, Inc.

Los Angeles - Former Playboy TV producer Ken Francis III has signed a deal with Fullscreen,Inc., one of the largest YouTube multi-channel network operators. Fullscreen, Inc., will promote and monetize Francis' YouTube channel, "The Buckwild Show," an archive of exclusive behind-the-scene footage Francis has secured filming, interviewing and documenting the biggest names in hip hop over the past two decades, including Snoop Dogg, Run DMC, Black Eyed Peas, Pharrell, Bobby Brown, and Outkast. Francis' channel will feature classic episodes of "The Buckwild Show" as well as his new show, "In The Lab." The signing marks a milestone feat for Francis who was just released from Federal prison less than a year ago.

An original and groundbreaking hip hop music video show, "The Buckwild Show" presents top name artists with sexy models. The series originally aired on Playboy TV in 2005 and has now been revamped for YouTube programming.

Francis' other show, "In The Lab," goes behind the scenes of music productions, featuring footage of studio sessions with various top recording artists. The show also showcases the home studios of famous as well as up-coming artists. There is a "Check The Technique" segment where music producers reveal some of their recording tips and Francis' vintage footage of various celebrities in the studio is highlighted in the "Classic Clips" segment of the show.

"The Buckwild Show" channel will also incorporate current celebrity hip hop news into Francis' funny "Qwik Clips," a 'talking heads' spoof on topical subjects and current events like the Drake vs. Meek Mill rap battle. There is exclusive archival footage of various artists like Kim Kardashian and Ray J, Quincy Jones,Jamie Foxx, Paris Hilton, Russell Crowe, Justin Timberlake and more. Additional content also includes history making footage such as the attack on Dr. Dre at the Vibe Awards and other memorable music events.

Francis' personal adventure in the hip hop industry is urban legend status. The television and video producer once captured and documented Hollywood's most intimate hip hop scenes with his lens. A pioneer underground video veteran, Francis' early productions included the now cult classics "Buckwild Beach Week," "Buckwild in Brazil," and "Buckwild 2001." These DVD productions were the first to showcase the beauty of women of color back when the popular "Girl's Gone Wild" series was ignoring them.

It was also Francis who introduced hip hop programming to Playboy TV with his original series "Buckwild." The shows highlighted uncensored videos and interviews from the likes of Busta Rhymes, Lil' Jonand theEastside Boys, the Ying Yang Twins,Jadakiss, Loon and Treach from Naughty by Nature. Real hip hop heads still own the Playboy TV DVD classic "Snoop Dogg's Buckwild Bus Tour" a project directed and produced by Francis.

A 20-year entertainment industry veteran who worked his way up from an ambitious intern at Polygram Records to owning and operating the hip-hop industry's most sought-after video vixen modeling agency, Dimepiece USA, Francis furnished countless models for the music videos of superstar artists like Jay Z, Usher, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Nelly, Missy Elliot and many others. It was the operation of Dimepiece USA which saw his eventual demise however when he was convicted for the agency's involvement in an international drug smuggling ring. Francis maintains his innocence to this day.

"My ordeal with the Feds and subsequent imprisonment was a very humbling experience after having such broad access to Hollywood's elite hip hop community," reveals Francis. "I believe the journey has enlightened me and given me the answers to some of life's hidden secrets. I have literally sat in a prison cell and dreamt of days like this."

"While incarcerated, I spent much of my time writing my memoirs and reading tech and business magazines. Once I realized the Internet was taking over the industry and moving toward original content, I knew I was sitting on a vast catalog of prized footage. I am more than thankful to be aligned with Full Screen, the number one content provider in the marketplace. Securing this deal with them is a huge affirmation for me and a tremendous boost as I work to secure and position myself again."

New episodes of "The Buckwild Show" air every Tuesday on YouTube and new airings of "In The Lab" premiere every Thursday.

LA's Folk&B ladies ArtPeace announce release date for "Free Music" and video teaser!


And here is the video teaser for single "Hi:)" which is out Sept 18th

On one lazy yet fateful Saturday afternoon, Birmingham, Alabama born and Oakland, California raised, singer/songwriter Taura Stinson googled "Serape Headboard". Feeling unimpressed with initial results, she headed over to Craigslist in hopes of finding a local designer willing to make her Serape dreams come true. She came across Chrissy Depauw's "Love Shack Designs" and the two began discussing specs for Taura's new art piece(pun highly intended). As the conversation came to a close, Taura felt a cosmic nudge deep in her soul and asked Chrissy if she'd consider bartering for the headboard. "Sure, what do you do? ". "I'm a songwriter", Taura responded.

Now Taura could have listed her many accolades, being a Grammy nominated, multi-platinum songwriter who has written for/with artists including but not limited to long-time writing partner Raphael Saadiq, Steven Tyler, Andre 3000, Kanye West, Destiny's Child, Kelly Rowland, Paloma Faith, Jennifer Hudson, Solange Knowles and even Earth Wind & Fire, but being humble she didn't. Instead, Chrissy (an accomplished Singer/Songwriter herself) visited Taura's website and jumped at the chance to seal the deal. Chrissy would handcraft a custom Serape headboard for Taura in exchange for a song. Feeling energized by this quirky coincidence, in less than a week Chrissy had completed the most amazing headboard that Taura had ever seen and they quickly arranged their first writing session.

The stars aligned perfectly as Taura and Chrissy connected on a level only understood by fellow Artists completely committed to their craft. They discussed the highs and lows of their journeys during that magical session and their shared view of the state of the music industry, coupled with infectious melodies and a relentless guitar loop... their first song was born.

Chrissy's journey had been the antithesis of Taura's. The San Diego native became a staple at the Santa Monica promenade years ago and her angelic voice would cut through crowds like wild fire. During her tenure she'd sold over 30,000 copies of her independently released self - titled acoustic cd. She has also shared the stage/worked with many artists including Andy Grammer, Capital Cities, Colbie Caillat and Javier Colon.

Both Taura and Chrissy contributed their talents to film. Chrissy served as co-writer and performer of "Set it on Fire" and "Dream" on the Honey 2 soundtrack, while Taura has co-written songs for various films including but not limited to the certified Diamond soundtrack for Men in Black (Will Smith), The Sitter (Jonah Hill), Epic (Beyonce'), Black Nativity (Forrest Whitaker & Angela Bassett) and Rio 2 (Jamie Foxx & Anne Hathaway), but the 2014 Gina Price-Bythewood film "Beyond the Lights" is where their collaborative journey officially began. Their song "Airplay" was featured in the film and was performed by Chrissy.

Both Taura and Chrissy felt their serendipitous union was not destined to end with one song and so they embarked on an musical journey, with Chrissy encouraging Taura to rise from the anonymous background she'd grown accustomed to and join her in splitting vocal duties.

One night Taura had a vision of herself standing alongside Chrissy with the name "ArtPeace" scrolling behind them. "Me, an artist?" She asked herself. Her soul replied, "Hell, yeah".

Immediately they began work on their soon to be released debut album entitled "Free Music". It includes the haunting single "High", co-written and produced by Darien Dorsey who also serves as co-executive producer. Darien's formal training at the Berklee College of Music coupled with Chrissy's undying love of 90's R&B and Taura's eclectic sensibility rendered a pervasive collection of music that bursts through the rigid and confined walls of "genre". ArtPeace describes their sound as "FOLK&B" which marries the organic sound of Folk music with rich lyrics and instrumentation that bleeds like the blues.

In addition to Darien, ArtPeace collaborated with Raphael Saadiq on the Southern hinged backyard song, "Son of A Gun". Saadiq also duets with the ladies on "Heaven Down Here" which is the sonic equivalent of licking batter dipped beaters of Grandmas best kept secret recipe.

Danny Wimmer Presents Announces Key Additions To Excecutive Team As Part Of Aggressive Growth Plan

Danny Wimmer Presents, producer of some of the largest U.S. music festivals in the rock and alternative landscape, has made several new additions to its executive team and support personnel as it prepares for aggressive growth in 2016. These include Vice Chairman Tony Guanci, Executive Vice President Gary Spivack, Senior Vice President of Operations Charlie Jennings, and Vice President of Marketing Eileen Mercolino.

In February, DWP announced that it had received substantial funding from the United Auburn Indian Community (UAIC) to purchase other festivals and promoters, launch new events and expand its operations, including its subsidiary, Southern Hospitality Concessions.

Founded in 2007 and based in Los Angeles, Danny Wimmer Presents has grown into the world's premier production company for rock music festivals, producing 9 unique live music festivals in high-demand markets across the United States. DWP is on pace to sell over 400,000 tickets this year, a 25% increase from 2014. By merging well-known talent with local cuisine and culture, DWP has become recognized within the industry for delivering the highest-quality, exceptional value entertainment experiences to customers, artists, sponsors, partners and host cities alike.

Says Danny Wimmer Presents CEO Danny Hayes, "In order to effectively deploy our capital, we needed to first add some key executives to our team. I am confident that these additions will allow us to reach our goal of adding at least 5 new festivals in 2016--through growth or acquisition--to our current slate of 9. I also expect that we'll hire an additional 5-10 people next year as we continue to aggressively add events over the next 5 years."

Tony Guanci--who was appointed to the DWP board earlier this year along with fellow sports and entertainment executive Peter Luukko--now joins the company full time in his new role as Vice Chairman. Guanci brings over thirty years of professional experience in the areas of business development, mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning, and management as well as an overall knowledge of the sports and entertainment industries to DWP. Over his career, Guanci has consulted for many of the top companies in sports, music and entertainment, such as: Walt Disney Co., NBC Universal Studios, Spectacor Management Group (SMG), Comcast Spectacor, and sports teams including the Los Angeles Clippers (NBA), Anaheim Ducks (NHL), Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (MLB), and Oakland Raiders (NFL). Outside of the world of sports, music and entertainment, Guanci has developed over 35 million square feet of real estate, which includes industrial, hotels and high-rise residential throughout California, Texas, Las Vegas, and Massachusetts.

Says Danny Wimmer Presents CEO Danny Hayes, "Tony's talents and unrivaled Rolodex will be utilized to help grow DWP's existing business and to seek out new strategic opportunities. Tony has played a pivotal role as an advisor to Danny Wimmer and me from the initial inception of DWP. To now have Tony's full attention really signifies the growth curve we are on and the opportunities we see in the market today. I know I speak for Danny Wimmer when I say that adding Tony to our team full-time is a game changer for us."

DWP's new Executive Vice President Gary Spivack will exclusively buy talent for DWP and DWP related events. Spivack has three decades of music industry experience, including a successful history in talent buying, marketing and curating hard rock and alternative rock music events across North America. As part of the transaction, Spivack's RockHouse Presents Inc. is being folded into DWP. Spivack will continue to be a principal and co-executive producer for destination festivals Rock On The Range, Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion and Northern Invasion.

Founder and Chairman Danny Wimmer, a longtime partner and co-founder with Spivack on such major festivals as Rock On The Range and Carolina Rebellion, says, "Gary is the best talent buyer in the business and his signature is embedded in every show we do. Gary is also key to the services business we are building that includes talent buying, production management, and concessions through our wholly owned subsidiary Southern Hospitality Concessions. People know of us as event creators, but with the addition of Gary, I want to also be known as a complete event services provider."

"Having been in the foxhole with Danny over the years, and side by side partners on such recognized events as Rock On The Range, Carolina Rebellion and many others, the decision to fold RockHouse into the DWP family was a clear next step for me to take. No brainer," says Spivack. "Here's to DWP's future."

Charlie Jennings joins DWP as Senior Vice President of Operations. A concert industry veteran of thirteen years, Jennings previously served as Vice President and Producer at AC Entertainment, where he oversaw the operations and production for AC's concerts and festivals including Gentlemen of the Road featuring Mumford & Sons, as well as the Forecastle and Big Ears festivals, and played a leading role in that company's growth.

"Charlie is a proven leader in the event production space and is key to our effectively executing on our growth plan," says Wimmer. "He has a unique skill set that includes operations at both the event and corporate level. With Charlie handling more of the day to day heavy lifting, I can focus more deeply on the creative direction of this company and each of our events."

Eileen Mercolino, Vice President of Marketing, comes to DWP with extensive experience in entertainment marketing, artist relations, brand and sponsorship marketing. She's held a range of marketing, sponsorship and artist relations positions at companies including Gibson Guitar, Hard Rock Cafe, and the Vans Warped Tour. Most recently at Gibson Guitar, Mercolino was directly responsible for artist relations and marketing partnerships with platinum-selling and high profile artists including Slash, Godsmack, Aerosmith, Weezer, Foo Fighters, Blink-182, AFI, Incubus and Mötley Crüe.

DWP's Head of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships, Clay Busch, says, "Eileen's years of experience in marketing and brand integration at diverse companies in the music and entertainment industries make her an amazing fit for the direction we are taking with DWP."

In addition to these executives, DWP has added additional support personnel and is still interviewing for other positions including office manager and controller.

MusicDish Review: "I Am Not I" by Liza Fox

As she slips into unconsciousness, an evil darkness takes over her angel-like spirit and soul. In her dreams, she fights, allowing her warrior self to take hold. This is the setting to Liza Fox’s new music video, "I Am Not I." Produced by Jus Grata, "I Am Not I" is the true epic of Liza Fox and her struggle against battling her bipolar disorder.

In her bedroom, there is white sheets and white and black hearts hung on her white walls. Also, one can see a witch warrior and a dark angel. This is a representation of the two contrasting sides of bipolar disorder. The music does a great job in the use of symbolism. The harp and vocal choir sounds represent the angel side whereas the saxophone is the darkness. This gives the piece some unique jazz and church choir elements all inside a pop musical setting.

In her video, there is a book of spells where one can see the spell for "Defeating Boogeyman." Part of the spell reads,"I am light. I am one too strong to fight. Return to dark where shadows dwell. You cannot have this Halliwell. Go away and leave my sight. And take with you this endless night." One can imagine this as being the hallmark to anyone battling this type of mental illness. By speaking out about her bipolar disorder, Liza Fox brings attention to this challenging disease.
