2013 New Music Preview The first quarter of the year is always the best time for artists and bands to break new records. Radio programmers have cleaned the slate on all of their holiday music and most take off some of the songs that they stuck with during the year before. With the major labels always taking extra time to get things “in gear”, it opens up some room to sneak in there before things start to get crazy all over again. New Music Weekly has all the tools of the trades to help make great things happen for new emerging artists. We are also the safe haven for the artists and bands that choose to release their product on small labels. In this issue you will already begin to see some changes in new artists and bands moving into striking position. If some of them ended in a mid-charted position, it might be the time for a few of them to make it to the very top of our charts. Our STS tracking is a reflection of what we have been talking about. You can see the openings occur already this year and for some, this is the opportunity many have been waiting for. If you don’t think the music industry isn’t watching your moves, you need to know that they are and in a very big way. This is also the time when the majors have new budgets and for some out there on smaller indie labels, your phone may start ringing sooner than you thought. In the coming weeks we will be announcing our next Future Hits music sampler start-up. This is a great tool for new artists and bands to get their music to “all of radio”. Artists that find their way on to our Future Hits compilation also get their music serviced through Airplay Access digitally so all of the bases are covered. This is a multi-format CD which means you will find the very best in Top40, Country, AC to College radio. Music and programmers simply take the songs they feel best fit their format. Many of our programmers have both Country and Mainstream stations all in one house so that can be of a big help for those artists that are looking for a multi-format push and coverage. Our New Music Awards is also a great vehicle for artists and bands This is our opportunity to acknowledge the very best for both the major and independent music artists. We also pay tribute to radio stations, music and program directors in addition to record labels and industry professionals. You have one week left to go online to our sight and put a vote in for your favorites as we expect to make the announcement of our winners very soon. The list of winners will be sent to the entire music world through numerous press releases in addition to being posted in our very next issue. The CRS (Country Radio Seminar) will be held in just three weeks in Nashville Tennessee. New Music Weekly will be on sight to meet with artists and bands and to conduct interviews in the media room the week of the event. Make sure to get in touch with us as soon as you can to secure a spot in the line-up. Our schedule is expected to be “jam packed”, but we will get to as many artists as we can. This is always a great opportunity to get together with new faces but also to connect with old friends. You never realize just how many people you know in the industry until you come to an affair such as this. For artists looking for that “extra push”, our special CRS issue is already in pre-production. Get in touch with us this week to make sure you have a spot in this all important issue. There will be limited space but we will try to fit as many artists and bands into this issue as we can. Once again this is just an additional tool to help “spread the word” about your project. As we move into 2013 we want to wish all of our subscribers, artists and stations the very best. We will continue our on-going “new music revolution” as we spread the good word to the entire music industry.

Kesha gets things started at Top40 radio for 2013 in fine fashion. “C’mon” (RCA Nashville) is her latest and she is proving to be the “real deal” after all. One of the most talented groups around these days continues to be Owl City. They are back at it and in a very big way with the gem “Shooting Star” (Universal/UMG). Watch for some big weeks ahead for this excellent single. Will I Am turns everything he touches into gold and this time out he’s taking Britney Spears with him for the ride. “Scream & Shout” (Interscope) is their fun filled duet and make no mistake about it – these two are one dynamic team. We’ll see how it all plays out in the coming weeks for sure. Ludacris and Usher are also getting plenty of spin action at the format. Together they are keeping pace with the best of them with the help of super mixer/producer David Guetta for the smash “Rest Of My Life” (IDJMG). Train keeps cranking out hit after hit and they may have struck one again. “Mermaid” (Columbia/Sony) is the jam that many of our music and program directors are raving about. Justin Timberlake has teamed up with Jay Z for what could be a huge record. “Suit & Tie” (RCA/RLG) is already pulling in some big time adds and spins and keep your eyes and ears on this one for sure. Taylor Swift just can’t seem to get any hotter at radio. Her “I Knew You Were Trouble” (Big Machine/ Universal) is biggest record she’s had out to date but there could be more my friends. The Lumineers are Grammy bound and Hit bound and that’s for sure. Their debut single “Ho Hey” (Dualtone) has become a huge record and look for some bright moments ahead for them in 2013. Newcomer Christy Angeletti continues to impress our panel with her single “Tough Enough” (Ind). Jason Mraz is one talented recording artist. His latest entitled “93 Million Miles” (Atlantic/WEA) underscores just what I’m talking about. Jason did his time in the San Diego area and now he shares his time with the rest of the world. Enrique Iglesias is making beautiful music with Sammy Adams and it’s all coming together. The single “Finally Found You” (Republic) is finally finding a spot on many playlists at radio here and around the world. Recording artist Britt Nicole has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. She shines in the single “Gold” (Sparrow/EMI) that is creating a huge buzz just about everywhere it’s getting spun. Newcomers Beyond The Sun are getting plenty of support from our panel of radio stations. It’s all due to the gem “My Kind Of Crazy” (OM20) that is “oh so good”. Alicia Keys continues to work her magic as her “Girl On Fire” (RCA/RLG) single keeps getting some solid play at radio. Lifehouse continues to deliver excellent music every time out. They display it all once again in the track “Between The Raindrops” (Interscope). Save some room on your list for this strong track. Matchbox 20 is back where they belong and that’s on TF radio. This time out they are taking the single “Overjoyed” (Emblem/Atlantic) out for a spin. Michael Damian is back with a surprise hit single. “Rock My Heart” (Weir Brothers) taken from his movie “The Sweeter Side Of Life” that he directed, is getting a super push thanks in part to multiple airings on the Hallmark Channel. Radio seems to be loving this single “big time” as well. The Rolling Stones are back at Top40 radio and that’s always a good time. “Doom And Gloom” (ABKCO/Interscope) is the one to watch and listen for. Nicki Minaj is getting extra attention from being an American Idol judge and she’s also getting spins for the spicy single “Va Va Voom” (Universal Republic). Apostle J Dancy keeps the heat on everybody with his strong and powerful “Soon” (Predestined International). Rihanna continues to rock the free world with “Diamonds” (IDJMG) and why not. Multi nominee Marsha Jewell keeps rocking the format with her “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane) single. NMA nominee Tommy Roe and Melissa Hooker continue to rock the format with the brilliant “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records). Nominee Matt Backer has teamed up with nominee Julian Lennon for “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records). I’ll have more soon in our very next issue.

Maroon 5 is still keeping the heat on long after the holiday season. Lead vocalist Adam Levine continues to keep that profile high and mighty thanks in part to “The Voice” (NBC) which has become a huge television rating’s hit. The single “Daylight” (Octone/A&M) continues to shine bright and gives this amazing act another well-deserved Hit single. It’s great to see Bon Jovi back in action. Their latest and greatest is called “Because We Can” (Island) and the fans and radio are really loving this in a big way. Taylor Swift picks up where she left off last year only to explode to even greater heights (if that’s even possible). “I Knew You Were Trouble” (Big Machine/Universal) has moved to the top of most charts in record time and that’s where it will no doubt stay for quite some time to come. The Black Keys are getting quite the “buzz” at our format. “Little Black Submarines” (Nonesuch/Reprise) is the gem that many of our music and program directors are raving about. Make sure you save a little room on your new list for this outfit. The Snow Patrol is back and that is always a good thing. “In The End” (IDJMG) could be their best record since “Chasing Cars” so we’ll see how this all plays out in the weeks to come. The new band Jade In Transit is off to the races at multi-formats. “When I Say Your Name” (DreamVista) is picking up so much speed that you just can’t stop them. They might be the one to watch” in 2013. It’s also equally exciting to see the name Van Morrison back in print. He’s got a new single that’s out and about called “Open The Door To Your Heart” (Blue Note/EMC) and we are all just loving this one “big time”. Keep Van in your hearts and minds when it comes to doing your playlist. Christina Aguilera teamed up with Blake Shelton over the holidays and they seem to be keeping the magic alive well into 2013. “Just A Fool” (RCA/RLG) is the track that everybody can’t seem to get enough of and for good reason. Michael Damian is back on radio with a big hit single. “Rock My Heart” (Weir Brothers) It’s not only powering its way up the charts here, but also at Mediabase, FMQB and on the AC Billboard charts. The song is featured in the film “The Sweeter Side Of Life” that has been playing on the Hallmark Channel all month long. New recording artist Bill Songy is making quite the name for himself. His debut single “These Days Are Gone” (Franzia) spent four weeks in the “most added” position and is now making its way towards the top of our charts. Apostle J. Dancy has been “on the move” as of late as his “Soon” (Predestined Int) track moves past the competition. Young Emil has a huge hit on his hands with “Night Train” (Caper) and make no mistake about that. Del Robbins continues strong well into 2013 with his Hit single “Where Did The Love Go” (Fame & Fortune). Multi nominee Marsha Jewell has a good thing going with “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane), set to be her next #1 single. Travis Herlocker continues to amaze with his new single “My Shame” in the one that is getting some serious multi-format action. Just take a look at the stats. Nominee Tommy Roe and Melissa Hooker continue to pull huge numbers for their “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records) track. Nominated artist Matt Backer has teamed up with nominee Julian Lennon for their #1 hit single “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records) and radio loves them. Paul Casey continues to impress with his stellar “Frontlines” (DaBet Records) single. We are getting things set up for our visit to Nashville. One of the things to keep in mind if you are an AC or Mainstream artists is that many of our programmers that may have a Country station also may have an AC and Pop station as well. Many of them will be at this event so this might be a smart way to introduce yourself to them and your music. Get in touch will us soon and we’ll make sure that you are on the post for this event. I’ll have more good AC news next time right here.

ALL ROADS

LEAD TO NASHVILLE If you’re a musician, at some point, the city of Nashville will be in your plans. Music City USA has earned its namesake. For decades, aspiring young, and not so young country artists have packed up all of their belongings and moved to the birthplace of country music as we all know it. A few were overnight successes. It took others a while to make a splash. And still others found odd jobs and waited years, and finally got their break. While it’s true not everybody that sets out to become a country superstar makes the grade- in fact, it’s hard to be considered in the Nashville elite as an “A” lister- that doesn’t stop many from finding out what all the fuss is about. Nashville is still country music’s home. But it’s quickly becoming the home for artists of all genres to see, and be seen. There is one particular area that Nashville is successful in keeping traditional, and deems it important enough every year to draw radio station programmers and music directors to the city. Sure, it’s a party to some extent, but the Country Radio Seminar- CRS- is not duplicated anywhere in the country by any other radio format. There’s a lot to be said about your country music superstar. I take notice and pride in the fact that when an artist wins an award, more times than not, they will 16

thank RADIO as part of being their success. Country artists take the time to talk to stations, and in turn their audience base, and make them feel like they’re part of the family. Because, really, the listener is to the true country music artist. And vice versa. That’s why radio stations like the legendary WSM are known worldwide. Country programmers mingle with artists and attend seminars each year that both inform and entertain. Networking is everything. And it is much easier now than ever before to network and never spend a dime on hotels, meals, and functions. But then, you miss out on the true meaning of CRS. Shaking hands. Have a beverage. Share ideas. No matter WHAT you do in life, it’s always better to try and do it in person. CRS has never lost touch with that human element. CRS brings all together once a year to place a face with the name. Many programmers have gone for years. Many go one year, and move on, and never go again. Same with promoters and record label personnel. But truth be told, CRS is really a must-attend function for programmers, and artists, too. Showcases for new artists are months in the planning for a one hour set to grab somebody’s attention. It’s not by fluke that the Grammy awards named a country crossover hit, “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum, as the song of the year. This multi-format hit had a hook that was unforgettable and all of us could relate to that one person that we really “needed” at some point in our life. Country is real. Country is home. Country is roots. Most, if not all that attend every year, leave with those sentiments. And a sad realization that it will be another year before we all come together again.

MUSIC BIZ Chris Brown ‘Investigated over brawl’

Lindsay Lohan ‘happy with Max friendship’

Chris Brown is being investigated on assault charges after his alleged brawl with Frank Ocean. The fight is said to have started on Sunday when both musicians were at Westlake Recording Studios in Los Angeles and became involved in an argument over a parking space. TMZ reported earlier that police were called to the scene after a brawl between both camps ensued - with claims that nobody wanted to press charges. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department have confirmed that deputies responded to a report of “six men fighting” on Sunday night. According to Radar Online, the department says the altercation, ‘allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim.’ Although the victim has not been named, Frank took to Twitter a few hours later, writing: “got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there. cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys. (sic)’ No arrests have been made. Chris is notorious for his brushes with the law - most notably for his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 on the eve of the Grammy Awards. He was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service. Last year the singer was involved in a bar brawl with rapper Drake in a New York City nightclub, with his attorney claiming Drake was the instigator.

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly unfazed by Max George’s admission they are just friends, as she is happy with their “no-strings-attached” agreement. The pair have been spending increased amounts time together since the troubled actress went backstage at The Wanted’s Jingle Ball concert in Philadelphia last month. Lindsay recently posted a playful photo of her with the boy band hunk on her Instagram account, leading many to speculate about the nature of their relationship. The picture caused Max’s fans to lose their temper on Twitter, with Max responding to their angry posts, writing: “rumors ... That’s all ... Like I said ... 1 million percent (sic).” Lindsay is reportedly not offended by Max’s reaction. TMZ have revealed the red-haired star is telling friends “she doesn’t feel burned because Max is telling the truth ... they aren’t boyfriend and girlfriend ... they just have a no-strings-attached non-exclusive hook-up thing going on.” The US website also claims Lindsay isn’t “taking things seriously” when it comes to Max and just finds hanging out with him fun. It was reported at the end of last year that Max’s bandmates - Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes - don’t want Lindsay around. “Ever since Max and Lindsay started hooking up several weeks ago, his fellow band members have found the amount of unwanted attention the group has received horrifying,’ a source revealed. ‘They have worked very hard to get where they are, and yes, the boys do party, but Lindsay brings all of her nonsense and drama.”

Ukrainian pop-idol star buys Freddie Mercury’s Rolls-Royce

Verka Serduchka Saves Silver Shadow For The Nation! Verka Serduchka (performed by Andrey Danilko) - Ukrainian pop-idol and silver winner of Eurovision 2007 became the owner of a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 74, which previously belonged to Freddie Mercury. During the recent press-conference Ms. Serduchka revealed her plans concerning the legendary purchase: “I bought the car not to drive it, but to preserve it to fans of the Queen!” She will give the Rolls-Royce to the museum of the Queen, that will be opened this year. Before that Mercury’s Rolls-Royce will be exhibited during the show of Verka Serduchka & Band in Moscow (Russia) on 9 - 10 March. Being the big fan of Freddie Mercury, Verka Serduchka said, that the only things that she will keep from the car are: a box of unused Kleenex Mansize and a perfume which remain from when the car was in Mercury’s possession. Verka Serduchka bought a 1974 Rolls-Royce at auction by Coys on January 12, 2013 as part of the Autosport International show at the NEC, Birmingham. The deal was made by telephone.

The Who announce ‘Quadrophenia’

The Who has announced a UK arena tour where they’ll perform their iconic 1973 double album Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with a selection of Who classics. The critically acclaimed Quadrophenia marked the British band’s second rock opera (after Tommy), raised the bar for rock albums as an art form, hit #2 on the UK album chart and massively influenced the future of UK style, fashion and culture ‘ from Paul Weller to Bradley Wiggins, from Paul Smith to Noel Gallagher. The album’s title is a variation on the popular usage of the medical diagnostic term schizophrenia and exemplifies the four varying personalities of the band members who created the album. It features such classic WHO songs as ‘The Real Me,’ ‘5:15’ and ‘Love Reign o’er Me.’ The film Quadrophenia starred a young Sting, Phil Daniels, Ray Winstone, Trevor Laird and Lesley Ash. John Lydon (Rotten) was screen tested for a part, but the idea was dropped when insurance became an issue! This new concert version of Quadrophenia, personally directed by Roger Daltrey, focuses on the

original album and replaces the narrative used in previous stage versions with powerful imagery projected on an array of massive screens, designed to support, complement and propel the musical content of the work by setting it in the context of the history of the band. The Who’s tour features founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, who will be joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), John Corey (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/ backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals).

Elton John has ‘close bond’ with surrogate

Elton John and his partner David Furnish love their surrogate ‘like a sister.’ The 65-year-old British singer and his beau welcomed their second son Elijah on January 11. Elijah was delivered by the same woman who gave birth to his two-year-old brother Zachary and the siblings were conceived by the same egg donor. Elton appreciates his surrogate immensely and considers her family. ‘She is a wonderful, kind and loving woman, who we love like a sister,’ he told the UK edition of Hello! magazine. ‘We have a very close bond with her and were in constant touch throughout the pregnancy. She has given us two amazing gifts and we in turn have a duty of care to her and are fiercely protective of her anonymity.’ Elton is excited about his journey as a father. He loves being a parent and is constantly enlightened by the experience. ‘I have learned that a parent’s capacity for love is endless,’ Elton shared. ‘When another child is born, our depth of love just grows deeper and wider, so it was very emotional.’ Elton’s partner David also finds parenthood to be a transformative experience. ‘Throughout our lives we have both loved and been loved, but the love of a parent for his or her child is different to anything else, as all parents will know,’ David said. ‘You find new depths of love, and experience pure joy.’ Elijah was 8lbs. 4oz. when he was born via surrogate in Los Angeles.

Billy Gibbons elected to Vintage Guitar Hall of Fame

Vintage Guitar magazine has announced the latest inductees to their Hall of Fame. The guitarist getting the most votes (29.3%) was Charlie Christian who was one of the most important innovators during the early days of the electric guitar. It was Christian who moved the guitar from a rhythm instrument to lead with his single-string technique. Also making the hall with 26% of the vote was ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. Vintage Guitar editor Ward Meeker said of Gibbons “Whether laying rock’s most-famous licks on a Strat or his legendary Les

Paul Standard, Pearly Gates, or any number of tracks and guitars in the more than 40 years that is ZZ Top history, Billy Gibbons has been a guitarist who purveys utmost style.” This is the 22nd time that the magazine has selected members for its hall in the categories of player, innovator and instrument. Gibbons and Christian were both brought in as players while the innovator for this year is Mike Matthews, effects pedal innovator and original owner of Electro-Harmonix. The instrument to be inducted is the Gibson Les Paul Junior.

Dolly Parton joins George Jones

George Jones is about to embark on the final tour of his career and he also thinks he has one more album in him before calling it quits. That album, for the most part, is going to be done with the help of Dolly Parton who is writing a number of songs for The Possum. Jones told Billboard ‘I love Dolly, always have and I am so honoured to be doing a project with her. She is writing most of the songs and we all know what a great songwriter she is. I am just waiting for her to tell me what to sing and when to sing it!’ No word on a timeframe for getting the album out. He also talked about his final dates. ‘It is a little bittersweet. I have been blessed to do what I love for all these years and when I return to places that I know I will be performing for the last time it makes me a little nostalgic and sad. I will surely miss my fans and the good people I have met along this journey.’

Tina Turner to become a Swiss citizen

Tina Turner has been a resident of Switzerland for 18 years and is looking to make it permanent. The singer is going through the process of becoming a citizen of Switzerland where she has passed the written civics test and interviews and, according to her local newspaper, the local government has granted her request. The decision now goes to the state and federal authorities for final approval. A rep for the singer told Zuerichsee-Zeitung news that ‘Tina Turner will therefore also give back her U.S. citizenship.’ Later, Turner told the German paper Blick, ‘I am very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. I could not imagine a better place to live.’ Tina was born in Nutbush, TN and Jo Matherne, the mayor of Brownsville of which Nutbush is a part, showed concern about the decision. She told Fox News ‘I think anytime a person, whether they’re world-renowned or the most meek and mild, makes the decision to change their citizenship we need to step back and think what causes that decision.’ Turner lives in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht. 21

Britney Spears has reportedly been banned from going online and reading gossip about herself. The 31year-old pop star has been through a lot recently, after confirming her split from fiance’ Jason Trawick and leaving The X Factor US after one season. Her team are said to be reluctant to leave her on her own, and don’t want her to read about any speculation surrounding her personal and professional life. ‘Britney seems confused and her team want someone with her constantly,’ a source told Closer magazine. ‘They’re worried about what she sees and hears and have banned her from using the phone or going online. She speaks to her family on her security team’s phone. She’s extremely fragile.’ After her engagement ended, Jason also stepped down as one of Britney’s legal conservators. She remains the subject of a conservatorship order following her 2007 meltdown in which she shaved her head bald, and those close to her worried she may have another mental breakdown. It has been reported Britney is considering a $100 million deal for a Las Vegas residency. Britney’s team are concerned she may not be in the right state of mind to perform so many regular shows in the popular party city. ‘It would be mentally and physical gruelling and, at the moment, she seems to be barely getting through the day,’ a source claimed. There is also speculation that Britney has started comfort eating and has gained weight in recent weeks. ‘She’ll eat chips, then say she wasn’t hungry,’ an insider revealed. ‘She needs all the support she can get.’

Swift and Styles Reunion ‘hardly going to happen’

Harry Styles has reportedly ‘stayed away from women’ since he and Taylor Swift broke up in December. The couple dated for several months before splitting over the holidays, apparently after they got into a huge argument while vacationing in British Virgin Islands. Although Taylor arrived in London earlier this week with speculation rife that she went to win back Harry, this tactic didn’t work. Harry may be romantically traumatised at the moment and is said to be embracing bachelorhood. ‘Since he split with Taylor a few weeks ago, Harry has stayed away from women,’ a source told British newspaper The Mirror. ‘Who knows what’s going on but there is no chance he and Taylor will get back together now. ‘People keep on saying that when they meet up in Cannes they are bound to reignite their relationship, but that is hardly going to happen.’ On Thursday a pretty blonde woman was seen leaving

Harry’s multimillion-pound mansion in the upmarket Primrose Hill area of the city. The young lady has been identified as a good friend of Harry’s sister Gemma and the siblings’ mother Anne Cox. Harry often consults the family friend, who is a fellow automobile enthusiast. ‘Harry invited her around and said that they were talking about cars, the girl is a family friend and when Harry buys cars he tends to do it through her,’ the insider said. Although the details of Harry and Taylor’s holiday blowout aren’t known, it has been widely reported that Harry grew bored of Taylor’s interest in antiques.

Morrissey rushed to hospital

Morrissey has been hospitalized in Flint, MI for what is reported to be a possible bladder infection. The former Smiths lead was forced to cancel a show on Thursday night in Flint and postpone shows on Friday in Minneapolis and tonight in Chicago.

street vendor approached them selling roses and John said he’d buy some for his lady, but when he reached into his pocket he didn’t have any small bills,” an insider told National Enquirer. “So Katy ended up paying for her own flowers! And she frequently picks up the tab for their gas, travel, expenses, dining - even his massages!” Although John is happy for Katy to shares some expenses, there are others he draws the line at. The star has sparked speculation he is planning to propose after he was spotted looking at engagement rings over the Christmas holidays. Katy apparently has no problem sharing the cost of things, with her family also happy with the arrangement. “Maybe he’s a saver and not a spender,” her mom apparently said. Katy, 28, and John, 35, began dating after Katy’s divorce from Russell Brand last year. Their friends are said to be convinced their romance will go the distance as they are so right for each other. “John is serious about Katy, that’s for certain. He has never imagined settling down with someone, but he’s infatuated with her. They have the same sense of humour, they love the same music and they love to travel together. And, of course, she’s beautiful. Although John’s got a reputation as a ladies’ man all of their friends completely approve because he’s so dedicated,” an insider previously said.

Stream here, yer’ actually compact discs to follow: http://soundcloud.com/earmusicedel/sets/tom-tom-club-dwntownrockers/s-tUPrZ Chris Frantz; “We recorded the basic tracks soon after we toured with the Psychedelic Furs in October of 2011 at our home studio. These tracks were built from improvised jam sessions with Bruce Martin on keyboards and Pablo Martin on guitar, Tina Weymouth on bass and myself on drums. This is the same way we began “Remain In Light” with Talking Heads. This time our only instruction to the other players was to keep the parts simple with lots of space, like Booker T.

and the MGs would do. There are some beautiful young kids running around Brooklyn in band shirts from the golden age of CBGBs and Max’s, a period that it seems is just as important today as it was back then.” Chris Frantz and Tina Weymout entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

Producers for the event confirmed on Friday plans for a large-scale production number paying tribute to movie musicals of the last decade. Bill Condon’s 2006 film Dreamgirls, starring Beyonce alongside Jennifer Hudson, Anika Noni Rose and Eddie Murphy, will be featured in the act. ‘The musical as a motion picture genre has had a remarkable renaissance in the last decade,’ Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement.

An ambitiously creative and powerful concept album featuring nine continuous tracks that show the obvious strengths of the band, plus two bonus tracks available on the CD version only. Enigma is available on CD and Digital Download at your favorite North American vendors. would come amid controversy for the star. The 31-year-old Grammy winner made headlines this week when she was accused of lipsynching at Monday’s inauguration ceremony for US President Barack Obama. An audio engineer for the musical programme has denied the allegation. Beyonce is also scheduled to perform at America’s Super Bowl half-time show on February 3. It is rumoured she will be joined by Destiny’s Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. Beyonce had not commented on the reports at press time.

Adam Levine: I’m Badass

Adam Levine would rather be “badass” than be buried in a cemetery. The 33-year-old Maroon 5 singer considers himself Jewish, although he has rejected formal religious practise to have a more general way of life. He is unrepentant for his unorthodox Judaism, even though his life decisions ‘ such as covering his body in permanent inkings - mean he cannot be laid to rest alongside others from his religion. “It’s funny, people say two things: they say I can’t be buried in a Jewish cemetery, and I think, so cremate me. It’s not going to matter to me, I’m dead,” Adam revealed to Vanity Fair, when quizzed about the markings. “The other thing people say is I’m not going to want to be an old man with tattoos. And I’m like, yeah, I do. I think it’s f**kin’ badass.” As part of Maroon 5, who are responsible for catchy hits such as Moves Like NMW - FEBRUARY 1, 2013

Jagger, the good-looking star was at risk of becoming a rock-star cliché. Prior to Adam accepting his role as a coach on the US version of The Voice, he was known more for his womanising ways than his music knowledge. “There are worse things in this world than to be considered what I was considered. I think people in the limelight - for lack of a better word - are scared of their own shadows. Especially with all the social media and things that bring a lot of attention to someone’s personal life,” Adam fumed. “People worry more about what they should or shouldn’t be doing, and less about who they are and embracing that.” In 2011 Adam joined The Voice alongside well-known figures in the music industry such as Christina Aguilera. Through the show Adam has been able to reveal his true personality, winning him new fans. “I thought The Voice was a great opportunity for me to repair any kind of character damage I’ve done in the past,” Adam explained. “I can actually speak, rather than be judged on just silly gossip, or someone not liking one of our songs - [neither of which] I think is a fair barometer for judging someone’s character.” The Maroon 5 frontman says that being part of a band is still his greatest passion. As the group prepare to start a US tour next month, Adam explained that The Voice will never beat his dedication to music. “It just was something I loved so much that I wanted to do. I’d been thinking about that since I was 12, and that passion hasn’t gone anywhere,” Adam said.

Blake Shelton picks up where he left off last year and that’s at the top of the Country world. Not only did his stint on The Voice (NBC) lift him to a much higher profile, his latest offering “Sure Be Cool If You Did” (WB/WEA) is keeping his Country fans very satisfied. I really love the new Eric Church single and so do many of our music and program directors. His new “Like Jesus Does” (Capitol/EMI) keeps him well ahead of the pack and what an award winning season he is having. It’s always good to see the name Darius Rucker on the charts. It’s been years since he’s had a mainstream hit but Country radio loves him and they really love his “Wagon Wheel” (Capitol) song. Watch for some big weeks ahead at Country radio for this gem. Miranda Lambert (we can call her Blake Shelton’s much better half) is keeping her New Year promises alive and well. “Mama’s Broken Heart” (RCA/RLG) is her latest and it’s getting major phones from coast to coast. The Florida Georgia Line is taking a stand and make no mistake about that my friends. “Get Your Shine On” (Republic) is the one that has many music critics raving and for good reason. Easton Corbin has come to stay at the format and proves it in every way by the song “All Over The Road” (Universal/UMG). You will love this track every time you hear or play it and that’s a fact. Jake Owen picks up where he left of in with a bright Country smash hit single. “Anywhere With You” (RCA Nashville) is the masterpiece that we are talking about. I also really love that new Rascal Flatts single. It’s called “Changed” (Big Machine/Universal) and it could be one of the best things they’ve done in a long time. Country recording artist Doug Newnum & SOS Renewal have a good thing going at radio. “Giving My Best” (Platinum Plus) is the one that has taken our panel by storm. You can count on some big weeks ahead on this one. It also helps that they have a nominated label in Platinum Plus. Love And Theft have a good thing going and make no mistake about that my friends. Their latest single “Running Out Of Air” (RCA Nashville) is the talk of the panel and for very good reason. I’m also really loving the new Carrie Underwood track. American Idol’s Country sweetheart can do no wrong and she proves it once again with the song “Two Black Cadillacs” (Arista/RLG). NMA nominee Kelly Parkes is “on fire” at Country radio. Her latest hit “As Good As Me” (Ocala) makes her a good shot for this year’s award announcements coming very soon. Charlie Worsham is also in the news thanks to his new “Could It Be” single. Jana Kramer is also making big waves and that’s all thanks to the new single “Whiskey” (Elektra/WEA) that many of our programmers are loving. Jason Charles Miller has it going on with “The Way You Still Want Me” (Render) and you may want to give that a few spins. Toby Keith seems to be a favorite on everyone’s that and that should be no surprise to anybody. Still rocking strong he gets love and continued support for “Hope On the Rocks” (Show Dog/Universal). You can always count on the super star George Strait for a solid song or two. Many are still strumming his “Give It All We Got” (MCA). And when you have a good thing going just keep doing it. Jason Aldean most certainly is a must add to any Country list. Still picking up where we left him in 2012 you can add “The Only Way I Know” (Broken Bow) to his long list of hits. He’s been making the most of things these days and there have been many television appearances on his behalf including a shot in primetime on the big New Year’s Rockin’ Eve event. Lee Brice is also getting lots of attention at Country radio. You have to just love his song “I Drive Your Truck” (Curb). We’ll see how this one continues to work out but it’s already a standard go to record for most programmers. We are getting “set and ready” here at New Music Weekly for the annual CRS. It is our hope to interview and meet many of you at this grand event. Make sure you plan to run something in our special CRS Issue that is already in production now.

C arrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of “American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into a promotion that is sure to please her fan following. S ony Music Nashville and Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, have partnered to launch an augmented reality promotional campaign for Underwood’s No. 1 album, “Blown Away,” which was released in May. U sing the free Aurasma Lite app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play, fans can launch exclusive video of Underwood that is triggered by aiming the device at the cover image of Blown Away. The video leaps from the Blown Away image on the mobile device or tablet and provides a click-through gateway to the album at the iTunes store. The promotion was launched in Nashville recently at the CMA Music Festival.

“ Carrie Underwood is always looking for ways to connect with her fans,” said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville chairman and chief executive officer. “We are excited to embrace a cutting-edge technology like augmented reality to help give fans something special and provide a cool, unique connection between the artist and audience. Sony Music Nashville is excited to watch this fun idea unfold and is eager to partner with Aurasma on other future campaigns.” U pon its release on May 1, “Blown Away” made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums sales chart making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010. “ Carrie Underwood is a proven superstar. We are thrilled to partner with Sony Music Nashville to help increase the momentum of her smash album Blown Away,” said Jennifer Rapp, general manager of Aurasma. “By leveraging augmented reality to bridge the physical and virtual worlds, Sony gives the fans something exclusive and special, helping to keep fans connected and Carrie in the spotlight.” T he free Aurasma app runs on iPhone 3GS (and above), iPad2 (and above), and high-powered Android devices. Y esterday, Underwood performed the first of four concerts on the Australian leg of her tour to promote “Blown Away.” She kicked things off in Melbourne, and will perform in Tamworth and Brisbane on Friday and Saturday, before finishing things in Sydney on Sunday. Also, Underwood has just released the title cut as the second single -- to follow up the chart-topping success of “Good Girl,” which became her fifteenth number one record.

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - FEBRUARY 1, 2013

Sarah Darling Talks ‘Home to Me,’ Moon Pies and Her ‘Bachelor’ Performance Nashville has watched as Sarah Darling has been laying the N groundwork for a successful career in the business for a few years now. With the success of her current single, “Home To Me,” as well as the release of her EP by the same title, it seems like the pieces are finally in place for the Iowa native. “It’s funny how it works,” she relates to Billboard. “You work so hard for years, doing everything you can, and I feel like it’s all happening at once. We keep saying at my label (Black River Entertainment) that 2013 is going to be such an awesome year for my career, and having the EP come out, and the single is connecting with people, which is what you want.” IIt has connected in quite a big way from the beginning. “We sold 8,000 the first week, and it’s been very steady. It really just amps you up, and makes you feel that you have something special.”

The “Home To Me” EP contains four tracks -- one which just might break her career wide open -- the romantic ballad “ the project, and looking for songs. I had been pitched it, and told him how much I loved it. He told me that Jay DeMarcus I wanted to cut it immediately. Most likely, it will be the second single.”

Darling will be performing “Home To Me” on the February 4 edition of ABC’S “The Bachelor.” Of the appearance, she sa to Whitefish, Montana, and shoot one of the dates, and entertain Sean and his girl for this date. It was such a sweet mome and family. It’s a song about love, one that matches what the Bachelor is about. It matches the feel of the show.”

The exposure of the song has helped lead Darling to a new endorsement deal with a staple of the south. “I’m so proud having a RC and a Moon Pie. It just creates a home feeling, and they wanted to partner up with us. What a great company people will send me pictures from Wal-Mart, Kroger, even the Nashville Airport with the boxes of me,” she says.

Another southern tradition that Darling has embraced is the Grand Ole Opry, where she will soon make her 27th perfo Every time I take the stage there, I feel so honored.” 40

“You Don’t Have To Be Lonely.” Darling tells us that she almost missed out on the song. “Dann Huff and I were working on from Rascal Flatts had written it, but it was on hold for them. They ended up not cutting it, and the day I found out, I said

aid “It’s one of the coolest experiences I have had yet in my career, to have that national exposure was so great. I got to go ent. I was in this town square, and the people had come out. It was a neat moment. I can’t wait to watch it with my friends

d to be working with Moon Pie,” she says. “To a lot of people, it goes hand in hand with your memories of being a kid, and y. Who doesn’t love a Moon Pie? My face will be on about two million Moon Pie boxes this year. It’s such a funny thing, as

ormance. “They gave me a shot when I really didn’t have a lot going on. They believed in me, and the songs I was writing.

College radio is “rocking strong” already here in the New Year. This is our very special 2013 New Music Preview that will be the one to set the table for artists coming out with new releases. It’s also your “last shot” to rally for a New Music Award. We will be making that announcement in the next few weeks and we wish all of our artists and bands the best of luck. Now let’s check out some of the music that is making history already in 2013. Wind-up Records’ New York recording artist Jillette Johnson will be touring through the Los Angeles area as she performs with Kris Allen on four exclusive dates. Jillette is currently on a large US tour in support of her recently released, smoldering debut EP, Whiskey & Frosting. With influences like Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and Carole King, this 5-song EP is an intimate and boldly emotional fivesong collection of stately pop from a unique and unflinchingly honest artist. Johnson’s commitment to her distinct vision is thorough and uncompromising, from her willingness to explore the raw and controversial in her lyrics, to her unwillingness to give into tempting hot ticket-career opportunities. Johnson audaciously declined a high-exposure spot on the television talent show The Voice to keep her creative autonomy. Everyone is talking about this girl! Nylon Magazine says: “Her VOICE. Jillette can sing and she’s not afraid to let everyone know about it. She rips through this song like a rock opera. It’s a little La Boheme meets Carol King in her prime.” And Amazon named Jillette one of their “Artists on the Rise.” Previous artists in this category include The Civil Wars, Elle Varner, and The Lumineers. Whiskey & Frosting was Produced by Peter Zizzo, widely respected for developing Vanessa Carlton and Avril Lavigne, and also Michael Mangini, esteemed for his work with Joss Stone, Bruce Hornsby, and David Byrne. Following up the widely received video for “We Want Peace - Reloaded, internationally known musician and Peace activist Emmanuel Jal brings the video for “Cush,” the latest single off of his 2012 release, See Me Mama. Rescued from the ravages of being a child soldier at war, Jal was placed in the expanding sanctuary of school, and it is his experience that education has been the defining difference between war and peace, oppression and freedom. Jal uses his music, which he describes as unleashing a childhood joy, not only to celebrate but also to educate and the imagery in the video for “Cush” make use of the rich & long forgotten history of the Kingdom of Cush, Emmanuel Jal’s homeland in South Sudan. Known in the Bible as the “land between two rivers” Cush is one of the oldest civilizations on the planet, and from which so much was taken and can be seen in all civilizations since, including Ancient Egypt, (when it was thought for centuries to be the other way around). “Cush” is a powerful visual expression of Jal’s tremendous pride in his homeland and his vision for moving forward as a strong vibrant peaceful people with a visceral connection to their magnificent past If a picture is worth a thousand words…..then ICON is your thousand words.
