Among the first artists that will perform on ADE's Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are Fatima Yamaha, Hercules & Love Affair, Anna of the North, Phlake and Vessels

The first edition of ADE LIVE proved that electronic live acts an exciting and growing part of the dance music scene. Adventurous fans and professionals saw talented artists like RÜFUS, HVOB, SUUNS and Jesssy Lanzy burn the house down. They built the foundation for a prominent place within the biggest club-festival of the world. We pick up where we left off, with even more ambition: more venues, more artists and more to discover. In addition to the OZ and Upstairs, Melkweg will open their biggest hall Max and Sugarfactory will also be showcasing on the first night, in addition to the second. Paradiso only used the small room last year, but this year they open up all doors. A statement that shows ADE LIVE deserves to get bigger and the acts more recognition. Expect dark-romantic electro-funk from Fatima Yamaha, also known as Bas Bron, who amassed a cult status with 'What's A Girl To Do' and recently made a comeback with his latest EP 'Araya'. The nu-disco, house and drop of Techno of Hercules and Love Affair, Arjunadeep's Cubicolor and the jazzy electro of Marian Hill are just a few of the names we released and know there's still a lot more to come!

OC Singer Featured At White House Day Of Prayer For Our Nation

She's no longer just the "Voice of the Voiceless," now, she's also joining the global music movement: "We Are One."

Popular, globally conscious, Orange County singer Laura Angelini was among hundreds of musicians from coast to coast who joined with internationally known recording artist David Longoria for the debut of Longoria's song of unity "We Are One" at the White House Day of Prayer for our Nation May 20 on the lawn of the White House.

The National Day of Prayer for our Nation was created nearly two decades ago by the Rev. Terry Lee, and iconic New York pastor and founder of Bi-Ways and Hedges Youth for Christ Ministry, Inc.

The event annually gathers hundreds to thousands of people from all political and ethnic backgrounds in music and prayers for government, law enforcement, families and more.

This year's event included an hour of music from Longoria and his eclectic crew of singers and musicians. Performers hailed from various points across the country, among them Tacoma, Wash., Hollywood, Calif., Las Vegas, Nev., and Charlotte, N.C.

"We Are One," was written by Longoria, he said, as a way to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie song "We Are The World," which brought an awareness to hunger in Africa.

"I felt the time was now to uplift and bring all people together when our nation is so divided by race, cultures, faiths and ideology," Longoria said, adding, "I knew I had to make the time and effort to perform for the Day of Prayer, as this song needs to be at the center of our divide where it can shake things up for the good."

Longoria began the recording of "We Are One" with the goal of uniting up to 20 artists from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The song and its message reverberated so well that he was soon receiving messages from people across the country and in several other countries as well – from China to Europe and across the Pacific -- all wanting to be part of the project. The list of artists performing on the song snowballed into upwards of 700 artists from Motown to current country, r&b and pop, before it was complete.

"Because of all the different styles of music the various artists perform I combined elements of EDM, dance music; Gospel; Country; Jazz; and, Rock to create a new sound", Longoria said, adding "the result is fresh and uplifting and so powerful with all the great voices."

Longoria said he is honored to be able to bring so many wonderful voices together in what has been called "The biggest song in the history of pop," because of all the artists singing together.

Longoria invited Angelini to sing on the recording and at the event because he knew she'd bring to the project her authentic compassion and concern for worldwide unity.

"She is a strong advocate for championing uplifting efforts and we are an uplifting effort," he said.

Angelini said "We Are One" fits into her passion for unity and concern for others. She said she loves to sing and, "spread joy entertaining audiences everywhere, while making a change in the world.

Angelini has been a regular performer at The Balboa Bay Club and Bistango, as well as many other popular live music venues since moving to Orange County from Las Vegas in 2004.

She's involved in several community and worldwide environmental, animal and health advocacies, including: Ocean Defenders Alliance Fundraiser; the John Lennon Vigil; Angels Of Charity, Music For The Children Of Peru, the Japan Disaster Relief Benefit; Leukemia Foundation; and, World March for Peace and Non-Violence. Additionally she developed music programs OCSA and APA Commercial Music Department as a Vocal Director.

Longoria explains his vision for the "We Are One" song and movement in a Youtube video, in which he plays his original song. "We Are ONE" at: v=iE5eC2Ey9j8 and: v=sYzJitssaDA

Ray Ramon Releases Brand New Single 'Jen-I-Lea'

Australian Recording artist Ray Ramon is back with the release of a brand new song titled 'Jen-I-Lea'

Ray describes the song as "Jen-I-Lea is a derivative of my wife's name "Jenni Lea".

The reason behind the song is the love I have for my wife, that feeling of wanting to appreciate everything we've been through reminiscing about the ups and downs that life may throw at us and determine that come rain or sunshine, she's the one person who sticks around and shows me so much love."

(The Super Fan Review)- Tracey Tiplady (Australian)

"Most of us know one love song that we can relate to. That brings the memories flooding back of a love we shared or a moment we had. Now thanks to Ray Ramon's latest song "Jen-I-Lea", there is a love song we can all love. This song in the pop and dance genre is sure to get you off your chair and onto the dance-floor.

The remixes are superb and the beats just get you up on your feet. You can feel the influence of the late great Michael Jackson in Ray's work with this fabulous song. You can hear the admiration and love he has for Jen-I-Lea but at the same time without even knowing who these people are you just want to get up and boogie. There's no need to bring out the tissue box for this one. All you are going to need is your dancing shoes. Now that's a love song."

New Album Mayhayley's House By Lonesome River Band

After 35 years of releasing hit after hit, Lonesome River Band is back with yet another stellar project. Their new album Mayhayley's House is out today on Mountain Home Music Company. It is available for purchase and streaming at many outlets including iTunes where it is a featured release on the Country music home page.

Mayhayley's House is dedicated to Mayhayley Lancaster, a self-proclaimed "Oracle of the Ages" who handed out "readings" and personal predictions at her home in southwest Georgia's Heard County. She was a quintessential southern woman seer, a well-known lawyer, political activist, midwife and teacher until her death in 1955. Folks would come to her house, pay her "a dollar and a dime" for a reading—to find lost items, predict the future, even to solve crimes. She would also dabble in local politics, lawyering, and farming. Most of all she represented the stout hardiness of independent backwoods folk that sustained traditions and distrusted the encroachment of modern ways. It was rumored, for instance, that what money she had was buried in multiple plots somewhere on her property.

Lonesome River Band, the bluegrass tinkers of tradition, dedicate this album to Mayhayley; to its fans; and, to people who understand that traditions once lost are rarely recovered.
Tracks and songwriters include:
1. Wrong Road Again (Allen Reynolds)
2. As Lonesome As I Am Matt Lindsey, Shawn Camp)
3. Mayhayley's House (Adam Wright)
4. Old Coyote Town (Larry E. Boone, Gene Nelson, Paul Nelson, Jr.)
5. Blackbirds And Crows (Don Humphries)
6. Ida Red (Arr. Lost and Found, PD)
7. Diggin' (Eli Johnston, Kevin McKinnon)
8. As The Crow Flies (Melba Montgomery, Billy Wayne Yates)
9. Lonesome Bone (Curtis Wright)
10. Think I'm Gonna Be Alright (Robert J. Gateley)
11. It Feels Real Good Goin' Down (Shawn Camp)
12. Hickory Hollow Times and County News (Matthew Lindsey, Herb McCullough)
13. Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss (PD, arr. Mike Hartgrove, Jesse Smathers)

Lonesome River Band's 35th Anniversary tour is in full swing with the band performing songs from this new Mountain Home Music Co. release. Summer tour dates include:

With two stellar lead vocalists, Brandon Rickman (guitar) Jesse Smathers (mandolin), and the impressive talents of Mike Hartgrove (fiddle) and Barry Reed (bass), the band seamlessly comes together, performing the trademark sound that fans continue to embrace.
