  • Pop/Rock Trio Beyond The Sun Releases My Kind Of Crazy EP, Kick Off Tour

    25 Oct 2012, 19:04 by musicdish

    This milestone will be celebrated by an official release party on Saturday, November 3 at The Mod Club, 722 College St. W, Toronto, ON from 7 – 10:30 p.m. as part of the Landmark Events Showcase. This special event is part of the band’s extensive 2012-2013 tour of Canada, U.S.A. and Europe.

    “Colin Radu is an extraordinary up-and-coming singer/songwriter. With his band Beyond The Sun, Colin displays the soulful influences of singers, from Gavin DeGraw, to Ryan Tedder combined with the timelessness of Pat Monahan (Train). He and his band are a force to be reckoned with.”
    Ken Tamplin, The Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, Los Angeles, CA

    “I’ve known Phil Radu for a couple of years, having had him as a student at Berklee in a few different classes. He’s always done really well. Recently I had the chance to listen to some of his band’s latest release. I knew it would be good, but I was still floored by the songs, production, talent and focus. He and his brothers seem to follow a very simple formula: Write great songs; play and sing them really well. Beyond The Sun is a winner in my opinion!”
    Jon Finn, Professor, Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA

    The fresh, energetic and heartfelt music of Beyond The Sun celebrates the Canadian band’s belief that lyrics and melodies can tell an on-going, universal story and help human beings connect powerfully through their many diverse experiences. Through catchy yet personal tunes that sparkle with infinite layers of harmony, guitarist Phil, lead vocalist Colin and drummer Dalton unleash tunes that resonate personally with their audiences. Growing up in an environment where creativity, the Arts and humor were equally supported, they immersed themselves in many styles of music, from pop, rock and folk, to rap and hip hop at an early age and found limitless ways to make music from their toys and other objects they discovered in the world. After forming Beyond The Sun, the trio immediately garnered the attention of audiences throughout its home country and elsewhere. Along with maintaining an ambitious schedule of live shows, each member continues to fine-tune his proficiency at his instrument, with two members formally studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.

    Beyond The Sun has performed at many venues across the GTA including The Reverb, The Opera House, Healey's, Edge 102 Studios and the Royal York Hotel. They have also played at various sports entertainment arenas including the Air Canada Centre, The Toronto Roadrunners Pre-Post game Festivities at the Ricoh Coliseum and seven seasons at the Rogers Centre with the Toronto Argonauts. The three have also played at notable festivals including Festival of the Islands, Burlington Sound of Music, CNE Rising Star and the Brantford and Oshawa Canada Day Festivals.

  • MusicContractStore.com Set To Launch This Month

    14 Oct 2012, 22:02 by musicdish



    Today, The Musician’s Guide and Avenant Law have announced a partnership to launch http://www.musiccontractstore.com, a new online portal to help artists and music companies download high quality music contracts.

    The website, which is due to launch at the end of October, aims to be the ‘go-to’ source for music contracts in the music industry.

    Marcus Taylor, founder of The Musician’s Guide says: “My goal with The Musician’s Guide has long been to remove the obstacles that get in the way of musicians achieving their goals. There’s no shortage of instances where well-known artists have split up over signing an unfair contract, or worse - not having a contract in place in the first place. We’ve created MusicContractStore.com to make high-standard contracts easily accessible to a broad range of artists.”

    Music Contract Store has a number of features that make it stand out from existing online music contract providers. First of all, it’s the only provider to offer contracts suitable for use in different countries, including the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. It’s also the only provider that guarantees all contracts are up to date with current legislation.

    Further product developments will also be announced in the coming months. This includes a custom music contract generator for record labels, as well as a wider range of music contracts, and locations served.

  • New Release By Ariana "You're Not Alone" Is Out Now

    11 Oct 2012, 19:09 by musicdish



    The time is here for the new release by Ariana "You're Not Alone" on Soundcloud http://soundcloud.com/arianaofficial/youre-not-alone

    After taking a few years off, multi-platinum recording artist Ariana is set to release her new single "You're Not Alone" in an unexpected new genre for the soulful Russian American vocalist, whose hits included power ballads "Under the Spanish Sky" and "I'll Do it All Again".

    "Taking time off was the best choice I could've made, because now I'm ready to dive head first into my musical passion -- the world of EDM. It's been an amazing journey, and I'm finally ready to share it with my patient and loyal fans all over the world!" says Ariana of her return to music. Her new single "You're Not Alone" is a delectable mix of vocal progressive house and dubstep with a hint of her current influences, Nadia Ali, Medina, and Kaskade. "Typically, in EDM, the focus is on the DJ and the vocals are like a complementary accessory to the song. I'd like to help change that, and bring the focus back to the singer and create a harmonious marriage, if you will, between the two sides. I think it could really be something glorious."

    In terms of her plans, Ariana doesn't plan to only focus on her own project. "Because I've been in the music business for so many years, I always saw myself developing and producing talent as well as my own music. This is why I try to surround myself with as much young talent as possible -- because that's where the future of music is at. Jack Wilson, who co-wrote and co-produced my new single is a rising star...you can quote me on that!" Judging by the buzz her new track is creating -- we think so too.

    You can follow Ariana's progress on Twitter: @Arianaisback, or her website: www.arianaofficial.com.";

  • Millennium, Pop's Newest Group, Releases 1st Single 'Beach Anthem' Featuring…

    1 Oct 2012, 21:07 by musicdish



    Millennium, one of the newest and most edgy groups to hit the pop music scene, announced the release of their first single 'Beach Anthem' today. It's a suitable title given that the song transports you to a world of sun, surf and sand with its infectious pop melody and cool reggae groove. An added bonus to this feel-good first single is that it features platinum artist Baby Bash, whose distinctive voice has become synonymous with girls, good times and nonstop fun!

    Initially this talented group from Los Angeles had a tough time choosing their debut single from their portfolio of songs which blend catchy hooks, acoustic instrumentation and hip-hop flavor. But with an extended summer season of triple-digit heat and the beach on everyone's mind, 'Beach Anthem' seemed to be the natural choice. According to Sapphire, one of the singers for Millennium, "Beach Anthem is a tribute to beachgoers all around the world, whether on Venice Beach or the coast of Nice!"

    Millennium consists of Stryker, composer, producer and singer for the group, K-King, Sapphire and Adonis- a colorful group of characters on the road to success, beginning with their new single 'Beach Anthem'. The song will soon hit airwaves across the nation and a regional tour is also in the works. Within a few short months, don't be surprised if Beach Anthem becomes the chorus sung over barbeque and bonfire pits across the globe.

    'Beach Anthem' is now available on iTunes and other major retailers. Download it today and keep the summer vibe going!

  • David Longoria's Instrumental Zoon Baloomba Enters Billboard Chart At #50, Is…

    1 Oct 2012, 02:52 by musicdish



    David Longoria [davidlongoria.com], known for his innovative blend of Latin, Jazz and Dance music has achieved National Hit status with his new single Zoon Baloomba as it enters the Billboard Dance Music Charts October 6, 2012 at #50 with a bullet. This marks the first time a trumpet player has achieved success on this chart with an instrumental since Herb Alpert did it with Rise in 1979. Rise went on to reach #17 on that chart and reached #1 on the US Billboard Pop Chart in the following months. Part of the success of Rise was attributed to it being featured in the hit TV daytime TV soap General Hospital.

    Longoria reached #14 on this chart in 2006 with his single Deeper Love (featuring singer Cece Peniston) but Longoria and Peniston sang together along with his trumpet work to create that hit. Zoon Baloomba is an instrumental song featuring Longoria's trademark trumpet embellished by some brief tribal vocals announcing the song's title.

    The single Zoon Baloomba has been presented in several remixed versions including Club mixes from popular remixers Ralphi Rosario, Majik Boys, Mickey Oliver, Gustavo Scorpio, and Mental Blue. It debuts on the chart right behind K-Pop Dance mega Hit "Gangnam Style" by Korean singer PSY at #49.

    The tracks are now available on iTunes, Amazon and other music sales outlets. It is currently playing in clubs across America with a much anticipated official music video scheduled for release in October. The unofficial music videos are posted on YouTube (youtube.com/davidlongoria) and have already gathered about a million combined views to date.

    Longoria is known in Jazz and Latin Jazz circles as an exceptional musician, often considered one of the most exciting trumpeters of this generation. His unafraid attitude in creating cutting edge works has earned him many awards including the Hollywood Music Awards Best Instrumental Artist Award, the ASYM (America Society Of Young Musicians) All That Jazz Award 2011 and the American Jazz Society's Top Contemporary Artist 2012 Award.

    "I always admired Miles Davis for going out on a limb to push the envelope of modern music", Longoria says, adding "and Herb Alpert always knew how to make trumpet music cool and accessible to the public, not just to jazz fans."

    And that's what is happening again now with Zoon Baloomba as it climbs the Billboard Dance chart. Thousands of clubs across America are featuring the song and Longoria's innovative approach to the trumpet and current music in the age of the electronic. "I love to blend my sound with organic and electronic elements to create something unique," Longoria explains, adding "and it's a great feeling to know so many people are enjoying and dancing to my music right now!"

  • New Solo Recording Artist Jey Gibbs Wants To "Touch Yo Body" With Debut Single…

    26 Sep 2012, 17:31 by musicdish



    When Jey Gibbs stepped foot on the stage of the legendary "Showtime at the Apollo," and opened his mouth, he was only 13, but he knew destiny was calling out to him. Singing since the age of four, the young artist was blessed with a gift that made the adults around him take note. So much so that even as a child he assisted his mom when she gave vocal lessons to the choir at his home church.

    Today, the 24-year is cementing his talent with his debut independent single and video release of "Touch Yo Body." If "Showtime at the Apollo" was still taking auditions, its doubtful he would be boo'ed from the stage! Gibbs has a voice and style that naturally causes women to sway and swoon. With a dash of hip hop bravado; coupled with smooth R&B fever, Gibb's vocal approach is seasoned with special flavor. He gracefully exudes a lustful timbre, tempered with a vintage charm, that he calls "Da E-ffect." A gifted songwriter as well, with "Touch Yo Body," Gibbs seduces the ear while he cradles the heart with lyrics that unwind any semblance of resistance. Gibb's B-side release, "Shoulda Coulda Woulda," which he also composed, continues the lyrical seduction with an up tempo beat that bangs steady.

    "I am happy to be able to finally throw my hat in the ring," reveals Gibbs. "It's taken a lot of hard word and sacrifice to bring my music to the table and I could not have done it alone. I am extremely grateful to the team I have around me. With these two songs, I'm singing to the women and I think with one listen, they will get the message loud and clear. I am an artist who is here for them." A Charleston, SC native, currently residing in Brooklyn, NY, Gibbs is a recent graduate of Long Island University with a bachelors in Media Arts. He hosts his own campus radio show, "Business with Jay."

    Both "Touch Yo Body" and "Shoulda Coulda Woulda" were mixed and recorded at Harlem's popular Stadium Red Studios. When not singing and recording, Gibbs supplements his craft by working at La Guardia Airport as a Transportation Security Officer. But by the sound of his first solo offerings, that won't be for long.

    Groove with Jey Gibbs at www.JeyGibbs.com and let him "Touch Yo Body" at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/touch-yo-body-single/id560191181. View the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dja84796lfM&feature=plcp.
