& NMA CRS NOMI NAT I O N S A R E H E R E

Welcome to our annual CRS and NMA Nominations issue. For those of you viewing this publication for the very first time, New Music Weekly continues to champion an on-going and special “new music revolution”. Our publication gives you the best overview on how major and independent artists are doing in multi-formats of radio from Top40, Country to Adult Contemporary. Our panel of reporting stations is at an all-time high as we continue to build a strong field of music, program directors and radio stations from coast to coast. Here at NMW all stations are treated as equals regardless of market size. This gives artists from all genres an opportunity as we continue to help “level the playing field”. To our good friends at CRS, we send out a special welcome as this event gets started in a brand new venue. The Omni presents some new and fresh opportunity to this annual grand affair and as we have often noted, CRS comes at the perfect time of year. In the early first quarter it is the best time to break new artists and singles and you can’t find a better platform by which to help make these things happen than by attending CRS. The gathering for programmers, many of which preside over multi-format stations also gives artists and labels the opportunity to break bread with the very best in the industry. New Music Weekly is on sight once again at CRS to spend time with emerging and established artists. We are able to obtain enough material and information to help us through the entire year. The outpouring of interest in our publication is an indication as to how pivotal our presence is and we are trying to get to as many of you as we can within this short period of time. All of the event and luncheons also provides opportunities for photos and additional editorial that we will be featuring in many of our future issues. This is also our New Music Awards nomination issue. We are so very proud of this year’s list of artists and their songs, many of which you can view in this particular issue. The event also gives us a change to honor radio stations, record labels, programmers and industry professionals and a big congratulations to all who made the cut. You will also find some artists displaying additional information that equally deserves your immediate attention. Please spend some additional time viewing our charts and the nominees. NMW subscribers, editors and music fans had a hand in the final list of our nominations. On the NMW website we provided an open ballot by which the general public could participate in choosing the nominees. Now that the list has been confirmed, music fans and the public can also now participate in the final outcome via their votes. The sight will be open to the voting public for about three more weeks so help us “rock the vote” so that we can have a fair and honest outcome. Our next issue will feature the winners for the New Music Awards and we wish all of the nominees the very best in turning the nomination into a win. The field of new music during this first quarter is exploding by leaps and bounds. All you have to do is take a very close look at the charts to see exactly what we are talking about. With holiday music now in a re-current category and programmers cleaning up their lists from last year, we see a new explosion of new singles and artists that gives us an indication that this is going to be a grand year in music. From Top40, Country & Hot AC new music abounds at this early stage and we are here to cover all of it for you. New Music Weekly continues to offer artists and record labels the very best tools of the trade. From our tracking services, editorial and multiple charts, we can give you a very different overview into what is really going on. Our stations, music and program directors are extremely open to new music provided that it fits their particular format. We welcome you to become a part of this on-going “new music revolution”. Again a big congratulations to our NMA nominees and another shout out to all of our friends at this year’s CRS. All the signs are out there that this will be one of the best years in music ever. We hope to meet most of you here in person and keep the spirit of this music industry alive & well.

We are all shocked and saddened about the death of the pop icon superstar. He was born David Robert Jones on January 1947, but the world knew him as David Bowie. the English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, painter, and actor. He was a figure in popular music for over five decades, and was considered by critics and musicians as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. His career was marked by reinvention and visual presentation, and his music and stagecraft significantly impacted popular music. During his lifetime, he sold an estimated 140 million records worldwide. In the UK, he was awarded nine platinum album certifications, eleven gold and eight silver, and in the US received five platinum and seven gold certifications. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. Born and raised in South London, Bowie developed an interest in music as a child, eventually studying art, music and design before embarking on a professional career as a musician in 1963. “Space Oddity” became his first top-five entry on the UK Singles Chart after its release in July 1969. After a period of experimentation, he re-emerged in 1972 during the glam rock era with his flamboyant and androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust. He won widespread popularity. In 1975, Bowie’s style shifted radically toward a sound he characterised as “plastic soul”, initially alienating many of his UK devotees but garnering him his first major US crossover success with the number-one single “Fame” and the album Young Americans. The hits went on and on and his legacy is forever in the world of popular music. He was brilliant in concert and in life and all of us will miss him greatly. 3

Mike Posner is back at Top40 and it’s about time. This talented gent is taking the single “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” (Monster Mountain/Island) out for a spin and so far so very good indeed. Jason Derulo is still the hottest hand in pop music these days and it only gets better as his new “Get Ugly” (Beluga Heights/WB) moves ahead of the rest. I’m also happy to report that the little duet with Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello entitle “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (Island/ UMG) is really becoming a monster record. Shawn has had a banner few months and this new one should seal the deal for him and his team. Those crazy Chainsmokers have teamed up with Rozes for, get this, a single called “Roses” (Columbia). As strange as it may seem this production team knows just how to get the morning shows buzzing and this has been translating into hit singles. Maybe they can give some additional inspiration to Justin Bieber? He has teamed up with J Blavin for a very sparse track which they call “Sorry” (RBMG/DefJam/UMG). Only the Bieb could get away with such things because he’s such a cleaver lad but hey whatever works. Travis Scott is fast becoming the talk of the town as his new “Antidote” (Grand Hustle/Epic) takes flight. This one might be worth your time as it appears to be building by leaps and bounds. I also really like the new cut from Lukas Graham. “7 Years” (WB/WEA) is the jam that is setting the world on fire. The pairing of the multi-talented Nathan Sykes with young a stunning Ariana Grande appears to be a very good thing. “Over And Over Again” (Global Music/UMG) is the track and I’d be all over this one if I were you. G Eazy & Bebe Rexha have got it all going on and a bag of chips. Their little ditty entitled “Me, Myself & I” (BPG/RVG/RCA) seems to be working just fine from coast to coast. Also getting in on the spin action is Tori Kelly. She’s so hot that you can barely touch her as the track “Hollow” (SchoolBoy/Capitol) finds higher ground. Everybody is buzzing big time about Twenty One Pilots. You know an act is hot when your local TV weatherman is talking about them and their monster jam “Stressed Out” (Fueled By Ramen). Victor Solomon is taking it to church with a debut single. “I’m Not Your Boyfriend” (Indie) is the first single from him and out of the gate it’s looking pretty good. All you have to do is look at the Top40 “most added” and Indie chart this week to see what I am talking about. And while you are looking at the charts you may notice that Mirage Box is back and in a very big way. Their new single “Secret Smile” (Growlyman Endeavors) is so hot that you can barely touch it. This is such a talented outfit and you can expect some monster weeks ahead for this great new track. They bring back a touch of retro and we need that badly. Primadonna is getting some love from our panel of music and program directors. Their release of the single “Superman” is just what the doctor ordered. Coldplay getting some well-deserved love for their single “Adventure Of A Lifetime” (Parlophone/Atlantic). Chuck Murphy has been having quite a solid showing as his “One More Time” (One West) keeps pulling ahead of the pack. He is also an NMA Nominee. We are so very excited about this very special NMA issue. Please take some time to check out the list of nominations in this issue and there are some amazingly talented artists that made the list. We are also honoring stations, programmers, labels and industry professionals. Please help to get the vote out on our main website and that will make all the difference in the final outcome. Your help can lend a hand as we determine the winners for our New Music Awards. All the nominees are posted on the sight so there is no excuse to miss this.

Rachel Platten appears to have broken the one hit wonder syndrome and is making no apologies about it. “Stand By You” (Columbia) is fast becoming a radio anthem. She has taken the empowerment movement to another level with this bright and infectious song. I’m happy to report that Seal is back at the format. “Every Time I’m With You” (WB/WEA) is his latest and it’s great to hear him back at the AC format. Elton John wants back in on the action and why not. The master of pop is taking the single “Looking Up” (Island) out for a spin and our music and program directors just can’t seem to get enough of it. Elton is also one of the most re-current artists at AC radio and has been for quite some time. Tori Kelly is back at it and in a very big way at that. Her new “Hollow” (SchoolBoy/Capitol) single is quite an amazing track. She may have been dissed as a former American Idol contestant but has come back to prove them all wrong. Keep your eyes and ears wide open for the multi-talented Tori Kelly as she is set to break with even more amazing tracks. And speaking of amazing, Jimmy White is back at the format and in a very big way. His new “Michaela” (828) has been at the top of our “most added” column for several weeks running and radio is all over this single. Jimmy returned to radio after a bit of a break during this past holiday season with his re-release of “I Wish You Peace” which topped many holiday lists. With this new single expect a banner year for Jimmy White. The KAJ Brothers are rocking the music world and doing it in style. Their rendition of “The Way You Look Tonight” (Living Fuel) is stunning. The production is first rate and the vocal performances second to none. You can expect some even bigger weeks ahead for this masterpiece as we get closer to Valentines weekend. Remember that you read and heard about the KAJ Brothers first, right here on the pages of New Music Weekly. Mirage Box is back at the format with one of their best to date. “Secret Smile” (Growlyman Endeavors) is such a homage to the 70’s and 80’s that it’s hard to pin point just what era it reminds us of. I really love the sound of a good trombone ala Chicago and their vocal arrangement is out of this world. Move this up your list as soon as you can. Newcomer Victor Solomon is taking the radio world by storm and make no mistake about it. His new “I’m Not Your Boyfriend” (Ind) is as catchy as anything out there so far this year. He is from the great state of Colorado and continues to produce and write very crafty songs. Look for more to come from the multi-talented Victor Solomon. The young and ever so talented Airy Jeanine is on fire at radio from AC to Top40. Her new “Do You” (Kmina Entertainment) single is ever so brilliant. The production is first rate and her vocal performance is Grammy ready – I just love this single. Michael Stosic is getting raves for his new “Welcome Home” (MiSto Music) track and make sure to spend some time with it. Andy Matteo is getting play for “She’s Already Here” (Ind). John Ratliff continues to dazzle with his current “U” (Ind) single. Eileen Carey is taking us to church with “Faith” (RolleyCstr Music) and inspiring the masses. Brandy Moss Scott has a new gem in “Oh How It Hurts” (Heavenly Tunes) that is already topping our “Most Added” column. Chuck Murphy continues his magical ways as “One More Time” (One West) moves towards the top of the charts. The single has hung in there strong and for good reason.

Vol. 18 Issue 1


With the multi-platinum success of their band Good Charlotte, it’s easy to forget that its founders, twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden, were once small-town boys from Southern Maryland, who could only dream of hitting the big time in the music industry. “We created the band in our bedroom,” Joel says.

“We were sleeping in the same bed wearing winter coats in a house that didn’t have heat talking about what it was going to be like when our band makes it,” - Benji Of course, they did make it. With their 5 full length albums, Good Charlotte have sold over 10 million copies worldwide, attracted an international fanbase, played headlining shows and festivals around the world, and earned a place in history with their radio-ready pop-punk sound captured on such albums as their 3xplatinum breakthrough The Young and the Hopeless. In the process, Joel and Benji have become international stars. In 2011, Joel was invited to appear as a coach on the highly rated Australian version of The Voice, which has just begun airing its new season. This year, Benji joins Joel as a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice Kids. The brothers also own and operate a fully functional recording studio in Hollywood where they write, record, and produce music for other artists. All the Maddens have ever wanted to do is make meaningful music. “We’ve always had the desire to do something timeless that could outlive us, “Benji says. They have already done that. The Young and the Hopeless was a genre-changing album, and they were only 22 when they made it. Turns out, though, it was only just the beginning. Joel and Benji have started a

new band called The Madden Brothers — a moniker whose simplicity reflects their earnest desire to express who they truly are. “Harvey Leeds, the guy who discovered us, used to say, ‘You’re like The Everly Brothers. Why would you be in a band? You should just be The Brothers,’ Benji recalls. “So the idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre, write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically.” When you strip away the live theatrics and fancy production, Benji and Joel are classic pop songwriters at heart, in possession of a killer knack for melody, harmony, and heartfelt story-telling. They showcase these gifts on The Madden Brothers’ debut album, Greetings From California…, which Capitol Records will release this fall. The album is split into two “sides,” the first filled with upbeat, sunny pop-rock produced by their long-time collaborator Eric Valentine, who also produced Good Charlotte’s The Young and the Hopeless and 2004’s The Chronicles of Life and Death. With a cheery vibe and harmonies reminiscent of The Beach Boys and the Phil Spector sound, Side 1 features several hook-happy stand-outs, including the soulful, ’60s-inspired and lyrically unapologetic “We Are Done,” the unabashedly poppy “Dear Jane,” (with lead vocals by Benji, who sings lead of half of the album’s tracks), and the urgent love song “Out of My Mind.” “We knew we needed to work with Eric,” Joel says. “There’s a magic that happens when the three of us get in a room together. He really knows how to pull the best stuff out of us, not to mention he’s an incredible musician and writer himself.” On Side Two, The Maddens’ radiant sibling harmonies are again front and center on songs like “California Rain” and “Brother,” but the music is more earthy, with a warm blend of folk, Southern rock, and ’70s-era FM pop. To get the sound, the guys turned to Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli, known for his work with The White Stripes, The Strokes, The Shins, Boy and Bear, and many others. “We’ve never had a really organic and natural recording, where it was just us kind of naked and not hiding behind walls of guitars and production,” Benji says. “Joe can capture that unvarnished quality and make it sound great. He’s one of the last great classic record-makers.”

Both sides of Greetings From California… reflect The Madden Brothers’ easygoing, West Coast-influenced creative spirit, hence the title, which was also inspired by what they consider a full-circle journey making the record. It began to take shape during a visit to see their friend Pharrell Williams in Miami in early 2012. They had just come off an 18-month tour supporting Good Charlotte’s 2010 album Cardiology and had been talking about doing an album together, just the two of them.

“We went to see Pharrell because he’s someone we really love and respect,” - Joel “Benji brought an acoustic guitar and it felt like a repeat of us leaving home at 18 for California with just an acoustic guitar. Pharrell recognized that we wanted to make classic, California rock and roll and drew comparisons to the Eagles which inspired us even more. We wrote “California Rain” together that night.” The beginning of Side Two, “California Rain” marked a turning point for Benji and Joel. Lyrically, the song tells the story of the brothers’ East Coast to West Coast journey: “Let me take you back before the lights, before the crowd, before we made a sound / All I wanted was to make my mother proud / She told me ‘Son, we’re from the side of town, no one ever makes it out.’” “It’s about the dream,” Benji says. “It’s about the music industry. California is a magical place, and we liken it to the dream.” “We definitely wanted the song to be epic, because California is epic to us,” Joel says. “The song sums up our experience — past, present, and future. We still believe in the dream. We still believe that some kid somewhere can leave home with an acoustic guitar like we did, a backpack, and 40 bucks, and hitchhike down the road and make it to California.” 15

by: Randy Adams

Remember the last time you went to a chain restaurant to celebrate someone’s birthday and the restaurant’s staff substituted a restaurant’s unique hand clapping “happy birthday” song for the traditional song? Did you give any thought as to why they didn’t use the traditional song?

ALL ROADS

Well, consider one further fact: A reported $2,000,000 in licensing fees have been paid annually to Warner Music Group who claims copyright ownership since a 1988 acquisition of several musical holdings which included the well known 120 year old “Happy Birthday to You” song. However, many dispute Warner’s copyright claim, arguing that the song is in “public domain”, available to anyone to use a musician, at some point, the city of withoutIffeeyou’re payment.

IS WARNER/CHAPPELL EXTRACTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN UNLAWFUL LICENSING FEES?

Defendant Warner claims the 1988 acquisition includes valid copyright ownership, and that due to the 1962 Copyright Act extension, and then the 1998 Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act, its ownership interest does not expire until 2030! Therefore, until the court issues its decision (expected this month or next) the debate continues between two groups of thought as to whether or not the Happy Birthday song still enjoys (or for that matter, ever enjoyed) copyright protection. If the court decides Warner does not have valid copyright interest, it will potentially owe millions of dollars in recently demanded fees. However, the court could uphold the Warner/Chappell copyright claim.... or, decide that it is not appropriate to make a decision without a trial..... to be scheduled in 2016? 2017? So don’t light those birthday candles and sing until you receive the court’s decision. The present issue arose when a Jennifer Nelson, who was making a documentary about the Happy Birthday song, faced a demand by Warner (still claiming copyright ownership) to pay a $1,500 licensing fee if she used the song. Warner’s copyright claimed fees encouraged others to initiate a suit against Warner/Chappell seeking a court decision invalidating any copyright claim to the song, putting the song in public domain. Warner claims the 1935 copyright registration (which changed hands but eventual was part of Warner’s 1988 acquisition of musical holdings) is valid. But the lawsuit claims: “...defendant Warner/Chappell boldly, but wrongfully and unlawfully, insists that it owns the copyright to Happy Birthday to You...and has extracted millions of dollars in unlawful licensing fees...” Warner/Chappell firmly disagrees. In an effort to have the court make an immediate decision in advance of any trial, both sides have asked the court for a Summary Judgment decision (that is that their side has such over-powering proof of its position that the judge can rule in their favor without waiting to conduct a trial). Each side presented their evidence in a court hearing last week.

The plaintiffs claim that copyright protection ended prior to the 1935 registration of the song, emphasizing that simply because a copyright is registered does not necessarily mean the registrant has valid copyright protection.. The plaintiffs argue that the 1935 registration is illusory...and point out that the 1909 copyright law (in effect at that time) required material published prior to 1923 be accompanied by copyright ownership notice. Smoking gun? Plaintiffs recently located 1922 songbook which includes a copy of the Happy Birthday song with no accompanying copyright notice. Therefore the Plaintiffs’ anti-copyright position is that the song’s copyright protection ended prior to Warner’s claimed 1935 copyright.

Lady Gaga to perform David Bowie tribute at Grammy Awards Lady Gaga is to honour her idol David Bowie by performing a special tribute to the late rocker at the upcoming Grammy Awards. The music legend, who passed away on 10 January (16) after a battle with cancer, is to be awarded the organisation’s Lifetime Achievement prize, and Grammy bosses have now confirmed Gaga will hit the stage for a special performance in his memory. Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich reveals the Poker Face singer had already been asked to perform at the show, but they decided to change her set into a Bowie tribute following his death. “We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year’s show, but when David passed - almost in a single moment - we knew we had to change direction,” Ehrlich explains. “We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She’s perfect for it.” Gaga is to team up with Bowie’s former collaborator, Nile Rodgers, who will act as musical director for her tribute performance at the awards show in Los Angeles on 15 February (16). The singer is set to compete for a Grammy in the Best Song Written For Visual Media category for her Oscar-nominated Diane Warren collaboration Til It Happens To You, from documentary The Hunting Ground. Other performers at his year’s (16) Grammys, which will be held at the Staples Center in L.A., include Adele, Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood, and The Weeknd. Gaga previously spoke of her admiration for Bowie and credited him with inspiring her pop career. “When I fell in love with David Bowie, when I was living on the Lower East Side (in New York City), I always felt that his glamour was something he was using to express a message to people that was very healing for their souls,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “He is a true, true artist and I don’t know if I ever went ‘Oh, I’m going to be that way like this,’ or if I arrived upon it slowly, realising it was my calling and that’s what drew me to him...” The pop star went on to reveal what she learned from the music legend, adding, “I just know that you can use the theatre of your imagination to entertain people beyond their wildest dreams and then you can put something inside of that that changes the world, and that to me is when you make something truly great as an artist... You don’t nail it every time. I definitely don’t, with all my songs, always hit that note. You try. And every once in a while, the world lights on fire with the music.”

Mariah Carey taking kids on tour Mariah Carey is taking her two children on tour with her to Europe because she wants them to see the world and experience different cultures. The superstar singer, who recently became engaged to boyfriend James Packer, has four-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, with ex-husband Nick Cannon. She is set to embark on a lengthy tour of Europe next month (Mar16), and Mariah admits she is looking forward to taking her son and daughter on the road with her. “Fortunately, they love to travel and they are still young enough where I can bring them around with me so it’s cool...” she tells U.K. TV show BBC Breakfast. “I like them to have experiences. You know it’s funny what they remember sometimes... I love what I do and we’re going to be really excited to see the fans in Europe for the first time in a really long time.” Mariah’s Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour kicks off in Glasgow, Scotland on 15 March (16), and the singer will wrap the dates up in Amsterdam, Netherlands on 23 April (16) before playing a handful of shows in South Africa. During the interview, the Honey singer goes on to reveal her son Moroccan sometimes takes issue with photographers who snap his mother’s picture, but daughter Monroe is happy to embrace the celebrity lifestyle. “It’s funny because my son really doesn’t like the paparazzi and he’s like... sticking his tongue out... But my daughter, miss Monroe, she’s ready to strike a pose,” she adds. Mariah also shows off the engagement ring she recently received from James, calling the diamond sparkler “a moment”, adding, “It feels great (to wear)... It’s very glamorous isn’t it.” Mariah became a mother to the twins in 2011, three years after she married Nick in The Bahamas. They split in 2014 and Mariah went on to strike up a romance with Australian businessman James last year (15). They confirmed their engagement last month (Jan16) after less than a year of dating.

Kelly Clarkson too pregnant for the Grammys

Pregnant Kelly Clarkson picked a a return to her American Idol roots over a night out at the Grammy Awards after her doctor ordered her to choose to attend one event as she nears her due date. The first-ever winner of the U.S. talent show is expecting her second child, and has been open about how her severe morning sickness has affected her ability to make public appearances. And before she welcomes a baby boy this spring (16), Nashville, Tennessee-based Clarkson is heading back to Los Angeles to serve as a guest judge on American Idol for its 15th and final season, a decision which was

both easy and difficult for her to make. “I was going to do the Grammys and Idol... but I just have such hard pregnancies, flying back and forth to L.A., like if they were closer together, I would’ve done both, but I had to kind of choose one,” she tells Houston, Texas radio station 96.5. “I obviously chose Idol because it’s ending and I was the original winner, so it’d kinda be weird if I wasn’t there. “I’m unfortunately going to have to miss the Grammys, because my doctor was like ‘Yeah, that’s not too smart for you...’ I was pretty bummed I’m gonna miss the Grammys this year.” Clarkson is set to join judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. during this season’s first live show, which is scheduled to air in the U.S. on 25 February (16). The 2016 Grammy Awards will be held 10 days before on 15 February (16). The singer first became a mum when she and talent manager husband Brandon Blackstock welcomed daughter River Rose Blackstock on 12 June, 2014. Kelly announced her second pregnancy during a concert in Los Angeles last summer (15).

Celine Dion ‘returning to Vegas for tribute to late husband’

Celine Dion will honour her husband at a tribute event in Las Vegas, according to reports. The singer had been performing her residency at The Colosseum inside Caesars Palace before the tragic passing of Rene Angelil, her spouse of 21 years, last month (14Jan16). While her shows are not scheduled to return until 23 February (16), Celine will apparently return to the venue on Wednesday night (03Feb16) for an event to honour her late husband’s life. According to E! News, Celine is not expected to speak or perform at the event, but will watch as specially invited guests and fans share their memories of Rene with speeches and videos. The news comes after Celine released a statement thanking her fans for their support, after Rene’s funeral at Montreal’s NotreDame Basilica was broadcast nationally. In a message published in French on her website, Celine wrote: “We thank from the bottom of our heart all the people who have expressed their love for Rene during these trying times. Your testimony and your support helped us, more than you can imagine to take this step and say our farewells. “Thank you also to the Government of Quebec for holding a national funeral, as well as to the many individuals and organisations who worked to provide a final tribute to the height of the man he was.” The statement was concluded with Celine’s name, as well as her sons with Rene - 15-year-old Rene-Charles and five-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson, and his three

children from previous relationships. Rene lost his battle with cancer in Henderson, Nevada, just two days ahead of his 74th birthday Celine has had to cope with an incredibly difficult few months, as her brother Daniel one of her 13 siblings - also lost his battle with cancer on 16 January (16), just two days after her husband’s death.

Rihanna released her new album early on Wednesday night (27Jan16) after the tracklist was accidentally posted on Jay-Z’s streaming music and video website Tidal. ANTI, the R&B star’s first album in almost four years was reportedly set for release on Friday (29Jan16), but some fans were able to get a sneak peek of the record two days early due to a glitch in the system. According to Billboard, Rihanna inked a deal with bosses at Tidal to exclusively release the record through their site. But for about 20 minutes on Wednesday afternoon, the tracklist from ANTI appeared on Tidal and reports suggest a number of users were even able to preview snippets of the songs. The brief glitch came hours after Rihanna released Work, her new single from the album, featuring Drake. The single marks the second time the two have collaborated, after teaming up on What’s My Name on her 2010 album Loud. Noticeably missing from the leaked tracklist were Rihanna’s 2015 singles, B**ch Better Have My Money, American Oxygen, and FourFiveSeconds, her collaboration with Kanye West and Paul McCartney. The officially released tracklisting features song titles like James Joint, Kiss It Better, Desperado, Woo, Never Ending, Love on the Brain and Higher. ANTI is Rihanna’s first album since Unapologetic in 2012. Rihanna had originally been planning to release the record last November (15) but various delays pushed the date back. She also recently set the record straight about who she has been working with on the album, after reports it was being produced by Kanye. “FYI Kanye is not EPing Anti!!!” she wrote during a Twitter exchange with a fan. “We’re both working on our own projects right now!”

Kanye West attacks Wiz Khalifa for criticising album name change

Kanye West unleashed a furious attack on Wiz Khalifa on Wednesday (27Jan16) after misinterpreting a reference to marijuana as a swipe at his wife Kim Kardashian. The two first clashed on Tuesday (26Jan16) after the Stronger superstar announced he had changed the name of his highly-anticipated new album from Swish to Waves. Wiz took issue with the term as it has become associated with the melodic style of music made by incarcerated MC Max B. “Please don’t take the wave,” he appealed to Kanye on Twitter. “Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him. He’s the reason I sing on all my songs. That’s the wave. If theres nothing wit that sound ITS NOT WAVY (sic).” Kanye did not respond directly, but on Wednesday, one of Wiz’s tweets caught his eye after the marijuana aficionado posted, “Hit this kk and become yourself” - a reference to his own strain of weed, called Khalifa Kush. Kanye thought Wiz was taking a shot at his reality star wife Kim, who is famed for her leaked sex tape, and he launched into a foul-mouthed rant aimed at the Black and Yellow rapper on social media. “Bro first of all you stole your whole s**t from (fellow rapper Kid) Cudi,” he wrote as he began reeling off 17 reasons why Wiz shouldn’t question his album title. “Second, your first single was corny as f**k and most there after... no one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through...” Kanye then blasted his ex-girlfriend,

former stripper Amber Rose, who went on to marry Wiz and give birth to his son, Sebastian, before splitting in 2014. “You let a stripper trap you,” he taunted. “I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years... I showed you respect as a man when I met you. You wouldn’t have a child if it wasn’t for me.” “don’t ever come out the side of your neck at me (attack me),” he warned, adding, “Don’t even hint at mentioning me my family or my wife I am your OG (original gangster)”. Kanye ended the rant by thanking Wiz for the “extra promotion” for his album, and insisted, “What’s sad is I love Wiz and I love all my brothers and all people... This album is actually a Gospel album... Good energy positive energy (sic)”. Wiz didn’t waste any time in firing back: “KK is weed fool,” he clarified. “Reason’s why your not wavy. Go bacc to Swish (sic).” Kanye has since realised the error of his ways and took steps to make amends for his unexpected outburst - but stood firm on keeping Waves as his album title. “Ima (sic) take these (tweets) down cause it’s all about positive energy,” he later posted. “blessings blessings positive energy blessings (sic)”. “I’m happy that I now know that KK means weed...,” he added. “please excuse the confusion ... now back to #WAVES”

Liam Hemsworth never formally proposed to Miley Cyrus again

Actor Liam Hemsworth has reportedly not proposed to Miley Cyrus for a second time, despite the fact the singer is wearing her engagement ring again. The former couple first sparked reconciliation rumours over Christmas, when the 23-year-old pop star spent the holidays with Liam and his family in his native Australia. Miley has since been seen wearing her engagement ring, which The Hunger Games actor originally proposed with in 2012. However, a source claims Liam, 26, did not get down on bended knee again to give her it. “(He) never formally proposed again,” the insider told Us Weekly, adding Miley simply started wearing the diamond again. “Liam noticed; they are telling friends they’re engaged.” The couple called off its nuptials in September, 2013 after four years together, but has spent increasing amounts of time with each other ever since the holidays. Miley and Liam were reportedly spotted kissing and holding hands at a Golden Globes after party earlier this month (Jan16), and on 16 January (16), images obtained by TMZ appeared to show the singer and some pals unloading her belongings from a removal truck into the actor’s Malibu, California pad. “Miley is definitely ready to settle down,” the insider added to Us Weekly. The stars have yet to comment on the reunion rumours, but Miley made no attempt to hide her ring when she posted a photo of herself holding her left hand to her chest on Instagram on 18 January. Meanwhile, Liam has previously spoken out about their relationship, telling Men’s Fitness magazine he will always love the singer. “You fall in love with who you fall in love with,” he said. “You can never choose. I guess some people just come with a little more baggage... “We were together five (sic) years, so I don’t think those feelings will ever change. And that’s good because that proves to me that it was real. It wasn’t just a fling. It really was an important part of my life and always will be.”

his battle with cancer on 10 January (16), and he has shared his memories of the 69-year-old in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. “I’ve played at being a rock & roll star, but I’m really not one,” he confessed. “David Bowie is my idea of a rock star. Right now, I’m in Myanmar, a little cut off from the reaction to David’s passing, but I can assure you the sky is a lot darker here without the Starman.” The 55-year-old grew up with Bowie and became friends with the star after U2 hit the big time, and Bono credits David with introducing the band to many sights and sounds which influenced the group’s music. “He came and visited us when we were mixing Achtung Baby - and, of course, he had introduced us to Berlin and to Hansa Studios,” Bono continued. “We had a playful sort of banter - he would really go there in conversations, and we would even occasionally hurt each other’s feelings.” While the truth can hurt, Bono appreciated David’s honesty for the most part, especially when it came to remarks he made about his Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which he cowrote with bandmate The Edge. “He took his daughter to a matinee, and he sent me the reasons he didn’t like it,” he recalled, “and everything he said was really helpful, because it was in the early days of the show.” Like all David’s friends, Bono was devastated to learn of his death, but he’s glad he reached out to contact his hero on his birthday, just two days before he passed. “I sent him a long email, and I sent him a beautiful poem by Michael Leunig, called Love and Fear,” Bono recalled. “One line goes, ‘There are only two feelings/love and fear’. I didn’t hear back, but I was told he got it.”

Selena Gomez recorded We Don’t Talk Anymore vocals in Charlie Puth’s closet

Selena Gomez recorded her vocals for Charlie Puth’s We Don’t Talk Anymore in the singer/songwriter’s hotel closet. See You Again star Puth reveals he was putting the finishing touches to the song on tour in Japan when he thought about asking Selena to join him on the record. “I produced it out in Japan, and I wanted to make a record that has that international type feel to it,” Charlie tells People.com. “Selena came on to it, and it completed it all. “I’m good friends with her now, and we talked about wanting to collaborate, and I was finishing the song, and I was like, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if you sang the second verse?’ And that’s really how it happened. “She came over; she recorded it. I didn’t even have a studio set up; she recorded it in my closet, and it really added a lot to the record.” It seems Selena’s tumultuous love life, including a highly-publicised on-off romance with Justin Bieber, was also a factor in her agreeing to lend her vocals to the song. “I met up with Selena,” Charlie recalled to MTV News. “And she went through a very public relationship, on and off, and she could just relate to the song and the lyrical sentiment. “I was playing the song for her, and she just started singing the second verse. I got chills. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that sounds so real. You need to sing on it.’ And she said yes.” 24

Jay Z hit with $18 million lawsuit Rapper Jay Z is facing an $18 million (£12 million) lawsuit over his signature cologne. Bosses at Perfumania Holdings Inc. claim the 99 Problems star failed to promote the Gold Jay Z fragrance while collecting $2 million (£1.3 million) in royalties. “Sales of Gold Jay Z have declined considerably because of Jay Z’s and his teams (sic) lack of interest in supporting and promoting his own brand..., while collecting a handsome guaranteed minimum royalty as well as Perfumania common stock,” the suit reads. The cologne launched in 2014 and was the best-selling celebrity fragrance the following year (15). However, sales have reportedly dropped and bosses at the company suggest it is because the rap mogul refused to make an appearance on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, turned down an interview and cover story for Women’s Wear Daily and would not appear for a promotional event at Macy’s, according to the New York Post. Executives at the company are seeking royalties and $16 million (£10.7 million) in damages. The rapper has found himself dealing with a number of legal issues in recent months, after he and wife Beyonce Knowles won a copyright infringement lawsuit over their song Drunk in Love in December (15). Monika Miczura Juhasz, known professionally as Mitsou, sued Beyonce, Jay Z and producer Timbaland in December 2014, claiming audio of her performing Bajba, Bajba Pelem - a traditional Roma folk song she learned from her grandmother - back in 1995 was taken and “digitally manipulated without her permission” and used during the production of Drunk in Love. She asked a New York judge to grant her unspecified damages and demanded the track be banned from the airwaves unless her vocals were removed from the song, but Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Cynthia Kern dismissed the case, ruling Mitsou couldn’t use the state’s Civil Rights Law because it only pertains to a “name, portrait, picture or voice used for advertising or trade purposes without written consent”. “Courts have consistently held that Civil Rights Law does not apply to works of literary and artistic expression,” she wrote at the time. “It is undisputed that the Drunk in Love song and video are works of artistic expression and, pursuant to well established law, they are therefore exempted from the Civil Rights Law.”

Thomas Rhett continues to push “the genre into exciting new territory” (Jody Rosen, New York Times) as he dominates the radio charts again this week spending a fourth consecutive week at No. One on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his PLATINUM certified hit “Die A Happy Man.” Since the beginning of 2012, only Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay” and Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” have accomplished the same long-standing reign. The track also maintains a third week at the top of the Mediabase radio chart and continues to be the best-selling country digital track for a 10th week since release just 16 weeks ago.

Demi Lovato mourns loss of uncle

Demi Lovato is mourning the loss of another family member with her uncle’s death. The Cool for the Summer star had a difficult 2015 following the passing of various family members, pets and friends, and she took to Instagram.com on Monday (25Jan16) to reveal the death of yet another loved one. Lovato shared a photo of her Uncle Jeff wearing a T-shirt promoting The X Factor, the U.S. TV talent show on which she served as a judge in 2012, along with a caption that reads: “This will always be my favorite picture of my Uncle Jeff. Not only because he’s wearing an elf hat and an X factor shirt on Christmas Day a few years ago, but because he looks happy and healthy. We are so grateful you’re at peace now. “Take care of Uncle Billy and Papa while you’re up there. We love you and miss you already.. #RIP” Last year (15), Lovato said goodbye to her great-grandfather, her Uncle Billy, friend and singer Chris Carney and two dogs, Spawn and Buddy. Before America’s Thanksgiving holiday took place in November (15), Lovato shared an inspirational message with fans, noting the words helped her get through the pain of dealing with so much loss. “Hey little fighter, soon things will be brighter,” the Instagram post read, while the star added in the caption, “When life hands you one too many curve balls.. Remember, #staystrong.”

Ellie Goulding narrowly escaped death during a recent visit to Norway after the vehicle she was travelling in plunged into a freezing lake, almost trapping her underwater. The British pop star was in Europe earlier this month (Jan16) when the all-terrain vehicle she was being transported in suffered a huge technical problem in the midst of extreme weather conditions. Photographer Conor McDonnell, who has been documenting the singer’s shows on the road, first shared the scary tale on Instagram.com on Monday (25Jan16), when he posted a snap of their submerged vehicle in the middle of a frozen lake - and revealed they would have died if they hadn’t climbed out of the sunroof. “This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago,” Conor explained. “That moment when you’re in -25 (degrees) in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof. “’Oh s**t we’re in’ was my first though (thought). Second was to take photos. We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good.” Ellie later shared the same image on her Instagram page, and captioned it, “Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30... Note to self don’t drive a BV206 over a frozen lake”. The singer hasn’t let the incident put her off travelling - she is back on the road after kicking off her Delirium World Tour in Hamburg, Germany last week (21Jan16).

to become the latest stars to offer up clean water supplies to thirsty residents of Flint, Michigan. Locals have had to rely on bottled supplies since 2014, after officials decided to draw water from a river which has since tested positive for lead. The uproar has prompted a number of stars to step up and donate to the city, with superstar Cher leading the charge by uniting with bosses at Icelandic Glacial to provide over 181,000 bottles of water to the city’s residents last week (ends22Jan16). Rappers Meek Mill and Big Sean and rockers Pearl Jam followed suit, and now Combs and Wahlberg have ordered a shipment of one million bottles of their fitness water brand AQUAhydrate to be delivered to city residents, with the help of donations from Khalifa and Michigan native Eminem. The first shipment of 5,000 cases is set to arrive on Wednesday (27Jan16) from the Los Angelesbased company, which Combs and Wahlberg invested in in 2013. They have also pledged to continue sending supplies until Flint’s water crisis is resolved. Meanwhile, rocker Jack White has also started a fundraising drive via his Third Man Records on CrowdRise - the same platform used by Big Sean and Pearl Jam to boost their donations - giving fans the chance to win big prizes in exchange for monetary gifts. And U.S. chat show host Jimmy Fallon has revealed he is sending a $10,000 (£6,670) cheque to officials at Community Foundation Greater Flint to aid locals. Matt Damon has also expressed outrage at the way the situation has been handled, backing calls from fellow celebrities like Cher for Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to step down and face prosecution. “At the very least he should resign. At the very least,” Damon told The Daily Beast. “Listen, everybody’s entitled to a fair trial in the United States of America, but that man should get one. And soon. That’s just my personal opinion.” The Hollywood star, who founded a charity called Water. org to provide safe water and sanitation to deprived communities across the globe, even compared the situation in Flint to the problems in Ethiopia. “We were in Ethiopia together six or seven years ago and this Flint

Brian Wilson announces Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour

Music legend Brian Wilson has announced a 2016 world tour to celebrate and perform the iconic album Pet Sounds for a final time, in honor of its 50th anniversary. Originally released on May 16, 1966, Pet Sounds is universally hailed as one of the greatest albums of all time. With more than 70 dates being confirmed, and several previously announced dates selling out in record time, Wilson and his band will be joined by former bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin when they kick off the tour this Spring. Concert stops include dates in Australia, Japan, United Kingdom, Spain, Israel, and Portugal followed by a full U.S. tour later this Summer and Fall. Fans can expect a live performance of Pet Sounds in its entirety, as well as top hits and fan favorites spanning his 54-year career with The Beach Boys and as a solo artist. Ticket presales begin January 27 with the official onsale January 29 in most markets. Additional dates and special events to be announced. For up-to-date information, please visit www.BrianWilson.com. In 1965, with the Beach Boys out on tour, Wilson began session work on some of the most deeply personal recordings of his career. Inspired by The Beatles Rubber Soul, he challenged himself to create an immaculate musical masterpiece. A vast departure from the bands’ then commercial sound, the resulting “concept album” Pet Sounds achieved great critical success helping usher in a new musical landscape and hit the Top 10 in the US while topping the charts in the UK. “It’s really been a trip to sit here and think about releasing Pet Sounds 50 years ago,” says Wilson.

“I love performing this album with my band and look forward to playing it for fans all across the world.” LABEL

Taken from their number 1 album ‘Born In The Echoes’, the video centres on the evocative dance of a young woman whose body transgresses from flesh to another form throughout the course of the songs haunting vocals and delicate but powerful production. Dom&nic’s vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; their VFX Team created a full CG model of the dancer, Sonoya Mizuno, comprising of 107 individual anatomic rigs, as well as bespoke tools to allow the seamless transformation which happens during the dance.

It is CRS time my friends and I will be on sight to cover all of the action. Look for me in the media room or by one of the Omni watering holes. Happy to report that Old Dominion is back at it with yet another monster hit single. “Snapback” (RCA Nashville) is the track and our panel of ever brilliant music and program directors are all over this one big time. Exciting and fresh Maren Morris is making bold and beautiful moves at Country radio. Everybody is raving about the cut “My Church” (Columbia Nashville) and for good reason, it’s extra special. Look for some bright weeks ahead for Maren Morris to be sure. Chris Young and teamed up with former The Voice (NBC) winner Cassadee Pope for a real gem. “Think Of You” (RCA Nashville) shows the magic of just how good this new duo is. Could it be a sign of more things to come from them or is this just a one-off? Trace Adkins is back at it and just in time. “Jesus And Jones” (Capitol Nashville) is his latest and greatest and this one is a winner from start to finish. Jennifer Nettles has found a new home and good for her. The single “Unlove You” (Big Machine/Universal) shines with her brilliance and with the Scott B & the Big Machine behind her only good things can happen. Jerrod Niemann has a new one that is rocking the Country music world. “Yellow Brick Road” (Aria Tree/C 5) is one that is getting a big thumbs up from our Country reporting stations. Also happy to report that Drake White is getting another deserved shot. His new “Livin’ The Dream” (Dot) is deserving of your love and support and this guy is the real deal and has most certainly paid his dues. Glenn Yarbrough is getting some good solid spin action at radio. His new “On My Butt” (Ind) is a great story and get this one into play now, Doc Holiday is also back on the charts and that’s a good thing. “You Don’t Know Me” (Mega International) is the one that you need to watch for. Better yet, get it into rotation and let your listeners tell you all about how much they love it. Eileen Carey has a lot of faith, some NMA nominations and a #1 single on our Country Indie chart for “Faith” (RolleyCstr Music). You can’t do any better than that. You may want to throw some support in for her on the NMW website and help her turn a nomination into a big win. In fact you can do the same for any of our nominated artists. Willi is making things happen at Country. “For You” (Mega International) is the jam that we are talking about and it is oh so good. Also making some big moves are Stickers. They have a little jam called “Countrified” (Wodarek Music) that is getting some good strong early spins. Bourbon Express is also taking it to radio with “Last Dance” (Ind) and there are some good early reports on this one. Eric Church is having a nice run with “Mr Misunderstood” (Universal Nashville) and he should for this one. Granger Smith continues to be the man of the hour. His strong and chart moving “Backroad Song” (GSL) picks up where it left off last year and to pretty solid results. Michael Ray is back with “Real Men Love Jesus” (WEA) and this is a real winner. Brett Eldredge is getting his buzz on with “Drunk On Your Love” (Atlantic Nashville). Also getting some love at the format is Joe Nichols. He’s taking “Freaks Like Me” (Red Bow/Sony) out for a spin and some of you really like this one. Chris Stapleton is also getting action for “Nobody To Blame” (Mercury Nashville). Joey Canyon has had quite a run with his “Life Without You” (Glo-Dot). It’s the follow-up to his earlier “He’s Coming Back Home To Her For Good” & Joey is looking at some nice NMA nominations as well. As I mentioned at the top of the column, I will be here at the grand CRS event and looking forward to meeting with many of you personally. We’ve been inundated with requests for interviews and will try to fit everyone in. I’m also looking forward to that little Tim McGraw speech I’ve been hearing about. A big congratulations to our New Music Award nominees and make sure you vote for your favorites at newmusicwekly.com. I’ll have more for you on Country next time here.

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 5, 2016

This is our Best Of 2013…so far issue. Throughout this musical visit you will see many Indie artists rising to the top of our charts and a lot of the music perfect for your Summer playlist. You may want to consider being on our Future Hits volume #43. This compilation will get your song to “all of radio” and all tracks will be also serviced digitally through Airplay Access. Contact us this week and make yourself a part of music history. Are you up on These Hearts? Ryan Saunders, vocals, Kyle Colby, guitar/vocals Isaiah Folk, drums, Daryl Van Beek, guitar and Tyler Rice, bass make up this super red hot band. The recent release of the lyric video for “Miserable” has ignited their fans anticipation for their forthcoming sophomore album “Yours To Take” available this month. The new album can be heard live on the band’s headlining album release tour beginning in Joliet, IL. The band’s sound is a combination of honest, refreshing, spirited pitch-perfect harmonies with dynamic and emotive breakdowns. Carrying the torch lit by iconic Victory bands A Day To Remember and Taking Back Sunday, These Hearts has arrived and you read and hear about them first right here at New Music Weekly. The New York based indie rock band Born Cages is set to release their Sidelines EP via Razor & Tie. The band will hit the road this summer as well. Born Cages new EP was produced by Jon Kaplan (Walk The Moon, Augustana) and Oliver Straus (Arctic Monkeys, Matt & Kim) at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY. The band is finishing up their debut full length album to be released later this year. The New York City based Born Cages formed in 2011. Within one year the young band had already released an EP, opened two sold-out shows for Guns N’ Roses and shared stages with such bands as Gold Fields, Mother Mother, and Ludo. The band has had music played on Q104.3 in New York and recently recorded a session at the Gibson NYC showroom that premiered on Purevolume. They were also featured on a large billboard in Times Square as part of a Toshiba promotion. Born Cages is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/ lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). John Tejada has a new exclusive mix for Halocyan Records entitled “Somewhere” via Pitchfork. Have you been following Halocyan Records? This is a global dance brand and record label launched by Dimitri Fergadis, an acclaimed musician and founder of the LA-based experimental electronica label Phthalo Records. Halocyan is dedicated to representing not just the present and future of electronic music, but also its rich history. Halocyan believes that a strong sense of historical roots is an essential launching pad for bold voyages into the unknown. New York City-based retro songstress Joanne Weaver sets out to the Dominican Republic this month to shoot her new music video for “Nature Boy”, the latest single off her debut album Interstellar Songbook which she released in June of last year. The concept album is a collection of Joanne’s unique, psychedelic renditions of eight classic standards from the 40s, 50s and early 60s and is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
