All-star Ensemble FLOW Debuts Genre-Defying New Music At Carnegie Hall On Friday October 6, 2017

Forty years after Windham Hill Records became a catalyst for the global New Age phenomenon, its legacy of best-selling works evolves into a fresh new era with FLOW - a unique four-piece ensemble comprised of Grammy Award-winning guitarist Will Ackerman, and three noted award-winning artists: Australian pianist/vocalist Fiona Joy, acoustic guitarist Lawrence Blatt, and trumpet/flugelhorn player Jeff Oster.

The all-star quartet celebrates the same-day release of their highly-anticipated debut album with an exclusive concert at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall on October 6 at 8 p.m. They will be joined by special guest artists including Eugene Friesen (cello), Vin Downes (guitar), Tom Eaton (bass and keys) and Jeff Haynes (percussion). Carnegie Hall is located at 881 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019.

For New Yorkers, the concert will be a unique opportunity to see Windham Hill founder and legendary guitarist Will Ackerman in concert for the first time with FLOW. He speaks to the group’s evolution on screen at

Weeks ahead of its official October 6 release, the eponymous album FLOW scored a #1 global airplay debut on the ZMR chart, and music media accolades. Ambient Visions editor Michael Foster wrote, "It was a gratifying aural journey to hear these four remarkable musicians set aside their ambitions or expectations about what the album should be in favor of allowing it to be formed entirely through their interactions as a group into something greater than each one would have been capable of doing on their own."

As reported in BILLBOARD, the concept of FLOW had its origins in 2015, when Blatt invited Fiona and Oster to join him at Imaginary Road to create an album inspired by the iconic Windham Hill sound and ensembles. Ackerman had already produced several of Fiona Joy's and Oster’s albums, plus Blatt’s recordings The Color of Sunshine, Emergence and Latitudes and Longitudes featuring Oster on horns; Blatt and Fiona originally met while recording a special project on Blue Coast Music. All told, FLOW’s members have accumulated literally dozens of accolades, from Grammy Awards to ZMRs, IMAs, IAMAs and a catalog of #1 albums in the genre.

Ackerman says that the project is one where he and the other musicians experienced "real synergy. The group had become a creative entity unto itself and four dear friends had gathered to create something beyond anything they could have created on their own. Experiments don’t always work. This one worked!"

Tickets range from $30-$40; for more information and to purchase tickets visit:

Missing Link Music Signs Bluegrass Songwriter Of The Year Daryl Mosley

Missing Link Music has recently signed a worldwide administration deal with American bluegrass legend, Daryl Mosley. Mosley was named Bluegrass Songwriter of the Year for both 2016 and 2017 by The Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA).

Over the course of his career Daryl has accumulated a slew of #1 hits, his most famous being the southern gospel classic "(Ask the Blind Man) He Saw It All" performed by The Booth Brothers. The song has won an array of awards including Song of the Year at the awards, The Diamond Awards, and the Singing News Fan Awards during the Quartet Convention in Louisville.

Mosley's success does not stop there as his list of collaborations extends far and wide. His talents have led him to work alongside Sharron Kay King, Ken Holloway, Josh Williams, Appalachian Trail, Shannon Slaughter, and country artist Lynn Anderson, earning him elite recognition in the bluegrass and gospel communities.

Growing up he taught himself guitar and before he knew it he was performing on stage at the Loretta Lynch Ranch, playing not only guitar but piano and bass as well. Mosley moved on later in life to form a relationship with the award winning bluegrass gospel quartet New Tradition. The group together is said to have delivered over 200 performances a year. Following his time in New Tradition, Daryl accepted a great opportunity to work alongside the Osbourne Brothers, playing with them for 10 years. Today Daryl Mosley can be found performing with his own group The Farm Hands. Since being signed to Pinecastle Records, the group has released several full length albums including their latest release "Colors" which dropped in late July 2017. The Farm Hands have made quite the name for themselves, being named Entertainer of the Year at the 2017 Bluegrass Music Awards, as well as being named Gospel Band of the Year for three consecutive years.

The team at Missing Link Music is excited to see what Daryl's career will bring in the future.

Love Hope Strength Band Announces Partnership With Killer Tracks

Killer Tracks today announces that I Can, We Can and Love +, will be released this month via the Killer Tracks Artists Series. A percentage of the revenue from the licensing of the songs will go to Mike Peters' Love, Hope, Strength Foundation which "leverages the power of music to expand the bone marrow registry." Two more songs will be released later this year.

The songs were written and sung by Mike Peters, whose band The Alarm produced more than 5 million records worldwide and 16 Top 50 UK singles. Peters is himself a cancer survivor and the subject of a new documentary, The Man in the Camo Jacket, directed by Russ Kendall and produced by Jonathan McHugh, Jonathan Platt, James Chippendale, Alex Colletti and Stash Slionski. The film chronicles Peters' 8-year battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. A special screening of the film will be held on August 3rd at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, followed by a short musical performance and Q&A.

Peters and The Alarm are currently headlining this year's Warped Tour, which includes a stop in Pomona, California on August 6. Love Hope Strength, named after The Alarm's 1985 anthem Strength, will have representatives at each Warped Tour date conducting swab drives and donor matches. To date, Love Hope Strength has added over 150,000 individuals to the bone marrow registry, and has created over 3,100 potential life-saving matches for patients around the world.

I Can, We Can and Love +, are vintage Mike Peters: idealistic, impassioned, soaring. "They are very inspiring and motivating songs, and fantastic additions to our Artist Series," says Killer Tracks VP of Production Carl Peel. "We are very excited to collaborate with Mike and support the work of his wonderful foundation."

"Killer Tracks continues to support great causes and great artists," adds McHugh. "Partnering with Mike Peters and Love Hope Strength in helping to promote his film and music has been a blessing."

Film and television licensing of I Can, We Can and Love + is available exclusively through Killer Tracks.

Roger D'Arcy Releases New Album 'House Of Heads'

HOUSE OF HEADS is already getting a big response from radio stations and fans around the world who are not only praising the thought-evoking collection of original Roger D'Arcy penned songs (plus the first track released from the album - Ordinary Man – his tribute to his musical hero, Gordon Lightfoot) but also its superb production quality - HOUSE OF HEADS has been added to radio playlists throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, North America and the UK. Stations are also adding tracks from D'Arcy's first album Crooked Tales and lining up a huge amount of activities including on-air interviews and promotions

In addition September 8th sees the release of the second track from HOUSE OF HEADS – 'Michael' – which is released following the success of his tribute to Gordon Lightfoot a cover of his classic - Ordinary Man

Roger D'Arcy comments "It's always a challenge to come back with a second album, especially one as eclectic as this one. We recorded the album at Babajim Studios in Istanbul, Turkey – a studio that I actually designed back in my previous life as a studio designer. Many people may well know of my career heading up Recording Architecture which saw me travelling all over the world combining a life long love of music with a passion for design and architecture.

"The song 'Michael' is another tribute to a hero of mine, this one a friend and mentor from my early years in the north of England. Michael had a huge influence on my view of life and showed me that there are many paths - he remains a good friend to this day.."

"We recorded 'Michael' along with the other songs that came together to form what became HOUSE OF HEADS over the fall of 2016 and spring of 2017 and I was fortunate to work with some of the most talented musicians I've ever met and to collaborate with my producers, Pieter Snapper and Mirko Ettore D'Agostino - who are also incredibly experienced sound, mixing and mastering engineers. An amazing experience!"


Roger D'Arcy's music career started at the tail end of university when he formed the label Longsongs Music which went on to sign other artists and received some critical acclaim for bands The 6ix (Radio 1 Best New Band of the Year) The Gift ("It'll End In Tears" and "Crashing Down" receiving John Peel, BBC Radio 1 airplay) and local TV and radio exposure for the band, Go!

He later went on to form the world renowned Recording Architecture which saw Roger design and build recording studios for the likes of The Kinks, Ronnie Wood, Sade, Annie Lennox, The Waterboys, The Cure, UB40 and literally hundreds of the world's finest studios.

He now returns to his first love: Making music…
