NEW MUSIC

Over the past weeks we have been on sort of a double-date going over this year’s big time CRS (Country Radio Seminar) and our own main event in the annual NMAs. It’s safe to say that both finally happened with few casualties and many good times and smiles. It’s not sure why the events collided but the time-line for both seemed to be on the same course and the best part about it is there were many winners among the two events. With the Country Radio Seminar singling out many of the radio personalities and stations for their annual event and our own New Music Weekly family awarding many artists, bands, stations, labels, programmers and music industry professionals, there was quite a lot of territory covered when both events came to a close. We were on sight this year once again in the media room at CRS spending a good deal of time interviewing artists and bands and taking lots of photos. It was strange moving this entire program to a new arena but it did not take too long for everyone to get a grip on the change of venue as things were kept pretty much intact. Buck McCoy did a super job for us meeting with a good many of you in attendance and at this writing there is still much to pour over. As in the many past CRS events, this get-together gives us ample information that we use for an entire year. If we haven’t gotten your name in-print please be patient as we will try to get to all over you in up-coming issues. Even with a change of venue for the first time in many years, much of the programming remained intact. The many luncheons complete with food, drink and ample talent seemed to be among the many highlights once again this year. Major stars from Tim McGraw to label executive extraordinaire Scott Borchetta were just a few of the major players in attendance this year. We were a bit surprised that even with this starting on a Monday, just how many radio people were actually able to break away and participate. As of the writing we are not sure about their attendance figures but taken that a new weekly schedule was set there were plenty of heavy hitters on hand to make it worth your while. We recently made the big announcement with regards to our annual New Music Awards and although there was no live event, there is plenty of buzz and music industry coverage with respect to the this year’s list of winners. Ed Sherran, Rachel Platten, Charlie Puth & the new DNCE were among the major artist winners while Joey Canyon, Eileen Carey, Chuck Murphy and the band Mirage Box were among the many independent artists to receive awards. Our publication also awarded many of our stations, radio programmers, record labels and industry professionals. For several months NMW provided an open ballot which once again allowed subscribers and music fans to participate by their votes on our website. This year we received a record number of votes in multiple categories and it revealed to us just how many are paying attention to what we are doing here. Since the announcement of our winners we have also received any overabundance of love and appreciation from many of our winners and their music fans. Also please keep in mind that even our nominees can consider themselves winners as they were singled out among the many hundreds in contention. Whether it’s covering the Country Radio Seminar (CRS) or presenting artists and the industry with awards via our annual New Music Awards, we continue to offer to artists, bands and record labels the “tools of the trade”. When you take into consideration our tracking and song services and advertising opportunities to reach the masses with your music, NMW is quite possibly the most important vehicle in helping the launch new artists. From the outset it was all about helping to “level the playing field” and we are thrilled that we have been able to accomplish this and we do so each and every week via our music charts. We’d like to take this time to congratulate all of our winners for this year’s New Music Awards & please continue to join us in this on-going “New Music Revolution”.

Gwen Stefani is back at Top40 radio with one of her best single to date in “Make Me Like You” (Interscope). The song was actually premiered as a “live video” during this year’s Grammy Awards and that most certainly turned out to be a winning decision in helping to break this new one wide open. Watch for some very big weeks ahead for this gem. Also making waves at the format is Troye Sivan. The track “Youth” (Capitol) is an out of the box smash and it’s getting some stellar support from many of our music and program directors. I can’t recall such a major push by a label on a new artist as much as I’m seeing with this new release so that must really mean something. Lukas Graham is making a debut stand and in a very big way. “7 Years” (WB/WEA) is his introduction to radio and what a breaker this has turned out to be. It’s not only a Top40 smash but our friends across formats at Hot AC are also finding this to be pure magic. The ever fabulous American Nomads are breaking the walls down at radio. “Revelation” (Motovun) is the one that has many of our music and program directors declaring this to be a monster hit single. We’ll see how it all pans out in the weeks to come but so far you can put a big star on this winner. Zayn is fast becoming the talk of the town at Top40. “Pillowtalk” (Syco/ RCA) is the jam that you need to be on if you are not already. This one has #1 written all over it so need I say more. Mike Posner actually has the surprise hit of 2016. His “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” (Monster Mountain/Island) is such a huge record that it just can’t be denied. Also not being denied is the always dangerous Taylor Swift. Her latest and greatest in “New Romantics” (Big Machine/ Universal) is running up the charts by leaps and bounds just like every one of her singles have done so far. Watch for yet another #1 for her with this powerful cut. Alessia Cara is a newcomer that needs to be attended to. Her latest in “Wild Things” (EP Entertainment/Def Jam/Universal) keeps this new talent ahead of the pack in every way. The pairing of icon Rihanna and the always loved and popular Drake is pulling in some strong dividends. “Work” (Roc Nation) is the track that many of you are loving big time and for good reason, as it’s a solid hit duet. Jeremih is back at it with more musical magic. “Oui” (DefJam/IDJMG) is the track that is really one of his best to date. Kid Ink has teamed up with the masterful Fetty Wap to bring us a winning combination. “Promise” (Alumni Music Group/88 Classic/RCA) is the song that everybody seems to be buzzing about and the listeners agree. Leslie Becker is getting good reviews for the new single “Slow Burn” (AP Music). Fifth Harmony and their new best friend Ty Dolla Sign have released “Work From Home” (Syco/Epic). It has to be one of the groups best to date so we’ll have to see just how this all works out for them and Simon Cowell. Nelly is getting some real love at the format and make no mistake about that. His “Die A Happy Man” (Records) puts him back on top where he belongs. Meghan Trainor has a new monster record on her hands. “NO” (Epic) is the track that is setting the music world on fire. G Eazy & Bebe Rexha have it all going with “Me, Myself & I” (BPG/RVG/RCA), Victor Solomon continues to work his magic with “I’m Not Your Boyfriend” (Indie) & we may also have something new from him this summer as well. Mirage Box are big time NMA winners and they have a big hit single to add to that. Everybody just loves their latest “Secret Smile” (Growlyman Endeavors) and we do to. Also getting raves is NMA winner Chuck Murphy who has a great new single on his hands called “Falling Star” (One West). The Kaj Brothers continue their winning ways with “The Way You Look Tonight” (Living fuel). Newcomer Dianne Meinke is getting raves for her new “Ten Thousand More” (UVI) and Jimmy White is breaking fast with his fabulous “Michaela” (828). Brandy Moss Scott is breaking big with her stellar “Oh How It Hurst” (Heavenly Tunes) and Airy Jeanine is moving to the top with her masterful “Do You” (Kmina ent). I’ll have more for you next time right here my good friends.

Monitored airplay data is supplied by Spins Tracking System (STS) a division of Backstage Entertainment. Songs ranked by total plays for the airplay week.

Taylor Swift continues to rock the format with hit after hit. Now she’s taking the single “New Romantics” (Big Machine/Universal) out for a drive and the results are as good as usual for her. You can expect another #1 from her with this strong commercial track. Also getting in on the big chart action is DNCE. Their smash “Cake By The Ocean” (Republic) should help to keep them busy with lots of Summer concerts and a Jonas brother to add to all of the excitement. Ruth B has a good thing going and the world of music is very pumped up. “Lost Boy” (Columbia) is the new gem that is getting lots of respect from our panel of music and program directors so what are you waiting for? Daughtry is back at radio and as the final season ofAmerican Idol is upon us it’s only appropriate that the band and the artist get in on the action. “Torches” (RCA/RLG) is the jam from them and this one has some great promise. And speaking of “Idol”, their first born in Kelly Clarkson is also taking advantage of an historic situation. Her new “Piece By Piece” (RCA/RLG) is picking up action from HotAC to Top40 and everybody seems to be on board with this offering. It’s all about timing and this could not be a better one. The fabulous X Ambassadors are breaking down the walls of radio programming in a very big way. “Unsteady” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) is their latest and greatest and this is one single you can’t get out of your head. Recording artist Leslie Becker is getting much love at the format from our panel. “Slow Burn” (AP Music) is a new one that you should be spending some time on. Also getting lots of love and support out there is one of my favorites in Cheap Trick. Newly embraced by Scott Borchetta and his Big Machine (and I do mean Big), “When I Wake Up Tomorrow” (Big Machine/ Universal) puts them back on the map and what a great treat to have them back at radio. Santana is also back at radio and that is always a welcome name to be sure. This time out he has “Anywhere You Want To Go” (Santana IV/Thirty Tigers) and he too might be looking at the Summer of 2016 for a new big US tour. Justin Bieber is getting some real support out there and I have to admit he is delivering the goods big time. “Love Yourself” (RBMG/DefJam/UMG) is another one that is fast becoming a radio anthem. Whether you like him or not, the kid is an amazing talent and seems to be getting it together. Ellie Goulding most certainly has it together and displays it well with “Something In The Way You Move” (Interscope). Robin Schulz has teamed up with Francesco Yates for a blockbuster that they call “Sugar” (Tonspiel/Atlantic) and the results are ever so powerful. The new Borns are also raking it in with “Electric Love” (Interscope). Newcomer Rob Gillette is also on fire with “What I Know Now” (Soul Stew). Jimmy White is back and getting lots of love from radio with his “Michaela” (828) that is the perfect Spring into Summer song. The KAJ Brothers are making it look too easy. Big NMA winners Mirage Box are also building their fortunes at radio. Everybody is really loving their “Secret Smile” (Growlyman Endeavors) single and for good reason. It’s an excellent song especially for the Spring. Newcomer Victor Solomon is also rocking the charts strong with his debit single “I’m Not Your Boyfriend” (Ind). You have to just love him. Chuck Murphy wrote a tribute song to the late Glenn Frey called “Falling Star” (One West) and we are happy to report that radio loves it big time. Airy Jeanine continues her winning ways as the single “Do You” (Kmina Entertainment) moves towards the top. John Ratliff is heading to the top with his ever popular “U” single. Michael Stosic is also on fire with “Welcome Home” (MiSto Music) and this one is excellent. Brandy Moss Scott is breaking fast and furious with “Oh How IT Hurts” (Heavenly Tunes). Young Grace Craichy shines with “Fly Me To The Moon” (Living Fuel) & make no mistake about that. Dianne Meinke is getting raves and big spins for her “Ten Thousand More” (UVI) single and this one is set to go all the way. I’ll have more for you on big AC Hits next time right here. I’d also like to send a big congrats to all of our New Music Award winners!

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

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?

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.

Frank Sinatra, Jr. dead after massive heart attack Frank Sinatra’s bandleader son Frank, Jr. has died, aged 72. Sinatra, Jr. died unexpectedly on Wednesday (16Mar16) after suffering a heart attack while on tour in Florida. Members of his famous family have confirmed the sad news. Crooner Frank’s son had a colourful life he was kidnapped and held for ransom when he was 19 in 1963, but he escaped his captors and was found walking the streets of Bel Air, Los Angeles. His kidnappers were later convicted. He worked for years as his father’s musical director and conductor, and thrilled sports fans last summer (15) when he performed the American National Anthem at a New York Yankees game. Sinatra, Jr. was in Daytona Beach, Florida preparing for a concert when he fell ill on Wednesday afternoon. He was the son of Frank Sinatra and his first wife, Nancy, and the brother of singer and actress Nancy Sinatra and TV producer Tina Sinatra.

Justin Bieber settles with another paparazzo

Justin Bieber is another lawsuit lighter after settling a dispute with a California paparazzo. The pop superstar was slapped with legal action by photographer Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran in 2013, after allegedly clashing outside a shopping mall in Southern California in 2012. In the court papers, Duran’s lawyer, Steven Madison, accused Bieber of kicking and punching his client, leaving him with severe emotional distress, after allegedly taking issue with having his picture taken while he was out with his then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. Gomez had been expected to testify at the trial about what she reportedly witnessed during the scuffle, but on Wednesday (16Mar16), the day the trial had been set to start, Madison revealed the suit had been resolved. Details about the settlement have yet to be revealed, according to The Associated Press, but Duran had been seeking undisclosed monetary damages. Bieber’s attorney, Howard Weitzman, has declined to comment on the news. It’s the second paparazzi suit Bieber has settled in recent months after previously reaching a deal with cameraman Walter Lee in December (15), amid claims he had been left with serious injuries after he was struck by the singer’s Ferrari in Los Angeles in 2013. However, the 22-year-old still faces a legal clash with Florida snapper Manuel Munoz, who alleges the pop star ordered his bodyguard, Dwayne Patterson, to corner him and beat him up during an incident in Miami Beach in 2014. Bieber has been told he must sit for a deposition in relation to the altercation by 31 July (16).

Jason Derulo loves ‘one-on-one’ time with girlfriend Jason Derulo is a fan of the simple things in life. The 26-year-old singer started dating model Daphne Joy, the ex of 50 Cent, last year (15), with the pair making their red carpet debut at the People’s Choice Awards in January (16). Since then, they have barely left each other’s sides, and were seen enjoying a vacation in Mexico earlier this month (Mar16). Jason added he was blown away by the break the pair enjoyed at Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis’ house in Punta Mita, as the property “was right on the water and had a full staff.” However, when it comes to his usual date nights with his stunning girlfriend, Jason prefers to keep things a little more casual. “I love the simple things,” he told People. com “I like just kicking back and getting that one-on-one time, watching a movie at the house, or she (Daphne) cooks dinner. She’s an unbelievable cook!” Jason was speaking as he was unveiled as the official host of the iHeartRadio Music Awards, set to take place on 3 April (16). The ceremony will mark the first time the R&B singer has presented such an occasion on his own, and while he’s feeling a touch nervous about it, he’s also very excited. “I have a little bit of nerves,” he shared. “It’s something new, it’s something a little different. I’ve co-hosted some award shows overseas before, but never hosted on my own, so that’s brand new.” The Floridaborn star is also looking forward to seeing the celebrity performers at the star-studded event. “I’m excited,” he said. “It’s an amazing celebration. iHeart always brings out the biggest artists in the world. I listen to all of the performers – you’ve got Pitbull, you’ve got Justin Bieber, you’ve got Meghan Trainor. There’s no shortage!”

Iggy Azalea

pressured to increase social media followers

Rapper Iggy Azalea has been encouraged by music executives to share photographs with celebrities online to boost her followers. The Fancy singer, who has more than six million Twitter followers, has been put under pressure by her bosses to up her numbers on social media, and they have even suggested she hangs out with fellow celebrities and post photos on social media to increase her numbers. “You go to meetings, you sit down and they’ll be like, ‘Blah blah blah Twitter followers - this is how you could make more,” she told Britain’s Schon! magazine. “Those things annoy me so much because they’re so f**king contrived. They’ll always say, ‘You should take more pictures with your

celebrity friends’.” Iggy has refused to take their advice because she finds it fake, and would rather not hang out with a famous friend, such as Demi Lovato, just for the sake of her social media accounts. “This is so gross!” she added. “Who wants to fake-hang out with people to take pictures for Instagram so you can get more likes? It’s just so fake... My position is - there’s plenty of people in the industry that I like or that I think are great. I’m not someone who calls up someone to go for lunch twice just to take an Instagram picture.” During the interview, the Australian rapper, who is engaged to U.S. basketball star Nick Young, also revealed she has organised the date and the location of her wedding ceremony but details of the day have taken a back seat while she gears up to release her second album Digital Distortion this year (16). “I know where I’m getting married, and the date,” she smiled. “I have my wedding dress being made. I’ve booked my honeymoon... But I haven’t made any major decisions, like I haven’t picked the food or done the table settings or flowers. I’ve been so immersed and involved in getting everything perfect for Digital Distortion.”

Adam Lambert unveils new single ‘Welcome to the Show’ feat. Laleh

Multi-platinum-selling, singer/songwriter Adam Lambert has unveiled his brand new single “Welcome to the Show”. The track was recorded recently in NYC on a day off from his ’ The Original High’ Tour.‎ Shares Adam: “I wanted to surprise my fans with a new, uplifting anthem for the spring. I asked Max Martin for help and he paired me up with two great writers and producers; Ali Payami, who worked with me on ‘Ghost Town,’ and Swedish star Laleh. Adam had a hugely successful 2015 when his latest album, THE ORIGINAL HIGH, debuted in the US top 3, UK top 10 and the top 3 worldwide. 2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year as well with his brand new single, his worldwide solo tour, headlining festivals with Queen, a new track with Steve Aoki, and playing Eddie in the 2 hour Fox television event for ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’.

Madonna denies boozy onstage behaviour

Madonna has denied allegations she has been performing drunk while on tour in Australia. The Material Girl singer has been accused of hitting the stage while under the influence during two shows in Melbourne last week (ends13Mar16).

cocktails. During another concert she allegedly drank tequila and alcohol from a fan’s hip flask. She has now blasted the fresh reports on Instagram.com by calling them sexist. She posted a screen grab of a fan ranting about the rumours, and in the caption, she wrote, “Thanks for supporting me. Too bad people don’t know the art of acting and playing a character. I could never do any of my shows high or drunk. And yes underlying all of this is sexism and mysongony (sic) which proves that not only do we not get equal pay bUt (sic) we are still treated like heretics if we step out of line and think outside the box! . Sexism is alive and kicking but i am ?#livingforlove (sic).” According to one report from the Melbourne show, she told the crowd, “One thing I’m going to do here tonight that I’ve never done before when singing is drink... I’m not supposed to be asking for alcohol right now but, Jesus Christ, get me some drink.” It was thought her boozy onstage behaviour was fuelled by her ongoing custody battle with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie over their 15-year-old son Rocco. The teenager has refused to return back to the U.S. following a trip to London to visit his father in December (15). Madonna was previously forced to deny claims she had been drunk during a Rebel Heart Tour stop in Kentucky in January (16).

The shock the music world felt over the death of Keith Emerson was only increased when it was ruled that the keyboardist had committed suicide. Emerson, who played with a number of bands including Emerson, Lake and Palmer, was found dead in his California home on Friday afternoon by his girlfriend, Mari Kawaguchi from a single gunshot to the head. Kawaguchi has since talked with the U.K.’s Daily Mail, telling them that Emerson was constantly worried that he no longer was able to play at a level he had in the past and that he would be a disappointment to his fans. “His right hand and arm had given him problems for years. He had an operation a few years ago to take out a bad muscle but the pain and nerve issues in his right hand were getting worse. He had concerts coming up in Japan and even though they hired a back-up keyboard player to support him, Keith was worried.” Emerson was scheduled for two nights in Osaka and five in Tokyo, Japan during the month of April. Kawaguchi went on to say “He read all the criticism online and was a sensitive soul. Last year he played concerts and people posted mean comments such as, ‘I wish he would stop playing.’ He was tormented with worry that he wouldn’t be good enough. He was planning to retire after Japan. He didn’t want to let down his fans. He was a perfectionist and the thought he wouldn’t play perfectly made him depressed, nervous and anxious.”

Sony reaches nearly billion-dollar deal with Michael Jackson estate

Executives from Sony Corporation have struck a deal with Michael Jackson’s estate worth $750 million (£525 million). The late pop icon owned a 50 per cent

stake in Sony/ATV Music Publishing before he passed away at the age of 50 in 2009 and the new agreement bosses at Sony struck with Jackson’s executors means the entertainment conglomerate will become the sole owner of the music publishing company. “The entertainment businesses have long been a core part of Sony and are a key driver of our future growth,” Sony President and CEO Kaz Hirai wrote in a statement released to Variety on Monday (14Mar16). “This agreement further demonstrates Sony’s commitment to the entertainment businesses and our firm belief that these businesses will continue to contribute to our success for years to come.” Sony higher-ups agreed to the sum of $733 million (£513 million) for the buy-out, but payment instalments means Jackson’s estate will receive a total of $750 million. Although the deal is pretty much cemented, a firm agreement will be reached on the matter no later than 31 March (16). Sony/ATV Music Publishing, a joint venture between Jackson and the entertainment corporation, was established in 1995 and it is considered to be the globe’s leading publisher of music, with the company either owning or administering over 3 million copyrights. EMI Music Publishing was acquired by Sony/ATV Music Publishing in 2012 for the tune of $2.2 billion (£1.5 billion). Sony/ATV Music owns the copyrights for some of the most established acts in history, including Lady Gaga, the Beatles, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, the Supremes, the Rolling Stones and more. Jackson fathered three children while he was alive, and representatives from his estate claim this significant deal will be very beneficial for his progeny. “This transaction further allows us to continue our efforts of maximising the value of Michael’s Estate for the benefit of his children,” co-executors John Branca and John McClain said in a statement. “It also further validates Michael’s foresight and genius in investing in music publishing. His ATV catalog, purchased in 1985 for a net acquisition cost of $41.5 million (£29 million), was the cornerstone of the joint venture and, as evidenced by the value of this transaction, is considered one of the smartest investments in music history.”

LL Cool J retires - and unretires from music in one day

Rapper/actor LL Cool J retired from music on Monday (14Mar16) - only to unretire and announce a new album hours later. The Mama Said Knock You Out star took to Twitter in an unlikely rant, which included a shocking post which read: “Today I officially retired from music. Thank you for the love.” His missive went on for 13 more tweets, as he wrote, “I want fans vs haters to start making wagers on my next album... my day 1s (original fans) should bet big. I got this.” Stunned fans were left confused after reading the surprising tweets, which he deleted soon after. However, he went back to the micro-blogging site hours later, and revealed he was just kidding around about putting aside his music career, writing, “Today I’m officially coming out of retirement.” LL also revealed he’s working on new music and even going into the recording studio that night to lay down some new tracks. He added, “And starting a new album (tonight)... I’m gonna massacre the rap game!!!” The hip-hop star continued to joke around with his followers, writing, “Oh because I’ve been doing this a long time I can’t have fun with this twitter game ? Lol (laugh out loud).” LL last record, entitled Authentic, was released in 2013 and the LP was his 13th studio album. He recruited various celebrity friends to make guest appearances on the record, including Eddie Van Halen, Snoop Dogg, Seal, Earth, Wind & Fire, Travis Barker, Tom Morello, and Brad Paisley, among others.

Unreleased Prince tracks up for sale

A cassette tape containing unreleased early tracks by Prince is set for auction. The songs, recorded in the 1970s, feature alongside three early versions of tunes he would later release, including So Blue, Gotta Broken Heart Again, and Sometimes It Snows in April. According to TheWrap, two of the unreleased tracks feature “bouncy, upbeat choruses and risque lyrics”, while the third song comes with “a chorus that includes very candid sexual pleas from Prince.” The iconic musician’s guitarist and frequent collaborator Dez Dickerson is putting the item up for sale, and writes: “Prince originally gave me the cassette in late 1978 because he wanted me to listen to a record he had recorded on side A (a female-fronted funk band whose name I don’t remember now). “Sometime during the next year or so, I used the A side to record some scratch bass and guitar parts for songs I was going to be recording for a rock/power pop demo I was doing, recording over the original content (you can still hear a snippet of the funk record at the end of the side).” While the minimum bid on the cassette tape is $20,000 (£12,500), it’s not the most expensive item up for grabs in the upcoming Prince auction - that title belongs to the diamond engagement ring he presented to ex-wife Mayte Garcia. The stunning bauble and five handwritten “heart notes” Prince used during the romantic proposal will start at $100,000 (£62,500). Prince and Garcia wed in 1996, but divorced three years later. Other items up for auction include a 1959 acoustic guitar the singer used to record his early demos, various outfits he has worn over the years and fine china used at his wedding, but it is unclear whether the plates were used at the ceremony with Garcia or his second wife Manuela Testolini. Prince and Testolini split in 2006, after five years of marriage.

Tyga’s team accused of attacking Cash Cash

Members of Tyga’s entourage have been accused of brutally assaulting dance stars Cash Cash on a concert cruise. The rapper’s crew allegedly clashed with Cash Cash in the early hours of Saturday (12Mar16) following a heated dispute over set times on the Inception at Sea bash, which sailed from Miami, Florida to the Bahamas. According to Billboard.com, Tyga delayed the start of his set by over an hour, overlapping with Cash Cash’s scheduled show, which had been due to take place on the same stage. The argument turned physical and resulted in Cash Cash members Samuel Frisch and Jean Paul Makhlouf sustaining injuries, which they showed off in a series of Twitter posts on Saturday (12Mar16), after having to cancel their performance. “Last night JP was violently physically assaulted by @tyga ‘s team mins before our set. Thank u to everyone who helped out. JP is recovering. We are extremely bummed we couldn’t play for our fans and were completely disrespected by @tyga and his team. More on this coming soon...” They also promised to share video footage of the “barbaric and uncivilized” altercation. Tyga’s representatives have yet to respond to the allegations, but on Monday (14Mar16), Cash Cash’s publicist doubled down on the band’s accusations in a statement to Billboard, revealing Makhlouf was left with a concussion. “Early Saturday morning members of Tyga’s touring crew physically assaulted Cash Cash during an altercation backstage at Inception at Sea 24

cruise festival,” the message reads. “Members affected include Samuel Frisch, and Jean Paul Makhlouf. Jean Paul Makhlouf suffered a concussion, injured kidney, alongside bruises to his head and body following the scuffle.” According to the publicist’s account, a Tyga crew member was filmed kicking Jean Paul in the ribs, while another Tyga crew member “slammed him to the ground, punching and kicking his head and body while on top of him”. “Cash Cash was unable to perform their set and Makhlouf was also forced to miss their following show to recover from the incident,” the rep adds.

Rita Ora defends dance moves

Rita Ora has defended her drunken dance moves. Photos of the Black Widow singer doing the splits and attempting the cancan while wearing high-heels during a private party were published by Britain’s The Sun newspaper on Saturday (12Mar16). The photos were taken while Rita was marking her 24th birthday in Marrakesh in 2014, and show her at a villa with friends. Now, the platinum blonde beauty has brushed off criticism of the raunchy photos, claiming they merely show her letting loose and enjoying herself with friends. “Even if you’re 25 or 45, of it’s your 50th birthday and you’re drunk or whatever, who cares! It’s your birthday - you can do what you want on that day,” she told Britain’s Metro. The 25-year-old added that she was more concerned with dealing with “what’s important”. “At the end of the day, there’s going to be judgments, on anything that you do in any kind of aspect and it just comes back to your security,” she said. “I know who I am, I know my fans, I know the records I sell, I know what I do and what I desire and if that’s not getting tarnished then I’ll do what I like.” Meanwhile, the star says that while the public may be used to seeing her looking glamorous at A-list parties, she actually prefers to spend her days off relaxing at home. At the Glamour Beauty Festival at the Saatchi Gallery in London, England, on Sunday (13Mar16), Rita also insisted that she goes without make-up when she has a day to herself. “When I’m on a day off I will be in my bed at home. Do I have my make-up done? Hell to the no,” she said.

ACM “Vocal Group Of The Year” Nominees Rascal Flatts wrapped their second wildly-successful Vegas Residency this weekend at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Over the course of their nine-show spectacular critics praised as “the trio that’s practically made of gold and platinum” (Las Vegas Magazine) “blasted through hit after hit” (Las Vegas Review Journal) as well as a surprise cameo from Brian McKnight much “to the delight of the band and their fans” (Las Vegas Sun.) Following enthusiastic feedback to the group’s stripped-down setup in Vegas, that allowed the group to fully engage with fans, Rascal Flatts announced today that their headlining Rascal Flatts: Rhythm And Roots Tour will kick off in Charlotte, NC on 6/17 and the trio have invited two-time ACM nominee Kelsea Ballerini and red-hot newcomer Chris Lane to join them out on the road.

Iron Maiden Ed Force One plane has accident in Chile

Iron Maiden’s Ed Force One tour jet has been involved in a serious accident in Chile. The undercarriage of the Boeing 747 was badly damaged during a collision on the ground in Santiago Airport in Chile. Two people were taken to hospital but we now understand that they are both confirmed as ‘not serious’. In an online statement Iron Maiden confirmed: “Ed Force One was this morning tethered to a tow truck to be taken for refuelling prior to flying over the Andes to Cordoba for the next show. On moving the steering pin that is part of the mechanism that connects the ground tug to the aircraft seemingly fell out. On making a turn the aircraft had no steering and collided with the ground tug badly damaging the undercarriage, two of the aircrafts engines and injuring two ground tug operators, both of whom have been taken to hospital. We hope of course that they make a full and speedy recovery and we will be closely monitoring their progress. The flight engineers are on site and evaluating the damage, but their initial report is that the engines have suffered large damage and will require an extended period of maintenance and possibly two new engines”. Later an update reported, “We are happy to tell

This spring sees the release of all of Eric Clapton’s live albums from his recording period with Polydor/ RSO,1970-1980. A vinyl-only title, it is a companion set to the January, vinyl-only box set release of all of his Polydor/RSO solo studio albums spanning the same period. Similarly, each album here has been newly remastered and pressed on heavyweight vinyl. Capturing live concerts in New York, California, Rhode Island, Tokyo and London, the collection includes Eric Clapton’s 1973 concert at London’s Rainbow with an all-star line-up featuring Pete Townshend, Steve Winwood, Ronnie Wood and Jim Capaldi. Eric Clapton, who recently celebrated his 70th year, needs little by way of introduction, as a renowned solo artist in his own right as well as a member of the Yardbirds, Cream and Derek and the Dominos. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and is one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. He has been the recipient of 17 Grammy Awards, 1 Brit Award and 1 Bafta. NMW - MARCH 18, 2016

Britney Spears’ latest family reunion turned into a real tearjerker after joining sister Jamie Lynn onstage in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday (15Mar16). The Toxic singer and her brother Bryan teamed up to introduce their little sister to the stage at country music mecca the Grand Ole Opry, and it became a big emotional get together after Britney called Jamie Lynn her “heart and soul” and burst into tears.

Hailed as “idyllic and passionate” (Rolling Stone Country), Chuck Wicks released his sophomore album ‘Turning Point’ on Feb. 26. This “stunning” collection of music showcases his “masterful writing,” pairing his “smooth voice” with the “poignant lyrics and storylines” he’s known for (ASCAP Audio Portrait). With tracks including “Always” — another “enduring wedding hit” (MusicRow) from Wicks — as well as the his rendition of “I Don’t Do Lonely Well” (written by Wicks, originally recorded by Aldean) and the “moody” track “She’s Gone,” Wicks reminds fans that his “fresh” sound is “the finest in the format” (Country Weekly).

to Jamie Lynn as to fans in the audience as she said, “I can’t believe that my whole family kept this secret from me!” “I’m so honoured to be at the Opry, but I’m more honoured to be here with all the people that I love the most,” she sobbed. The singer then took to Instagram after the gig and called her night at the fabled venue “the best surprise ever at the most special place ever”. Meanwhile, Britney posted a shot of herself with brother Bryan backstage, and captioned it: “Before we surprised @jamielynnspears tonight!! So proud of our baby sister.” Mum and dad Jamie and Lynne Spears were also part of the get together, as was Jamie Lynn’s husband, Jamie Watson, and her seven-year-old daughter, Maddie. Jamie Lynn also posted a photo of the Spears clan together before she discovered her brother and sister would be joining her onstage. Britney made the trip to Nashville from Las Vegas, where she’s currently planning and rehearsing for another run of Piece of Me dates at the AXIS at Planet Hollywood, which begin on 6 April (16).

Katy Perry stoked for Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party

Katy Perry is willing to camp outside of a theatre to see Seth Rogen’s upcoming R-rated animated film Sausage Party. The Pineapple Express star recently released the red-band trailer for latest project, which takes place in a grocery store with raunchy talking foods. The preview has already raked in more than two million views, and the pop star is one of the many people eager to view the feature, which doesn’t hit cinemas until August

(16). Katy took to Twitter on Wednesday (16Mar16) and shared the link to the movie’s teaser, adding: “Omg. I will campTWovernight in line like a kid at a (popular ARTIST SINGLE clothing store) Supreme store to see this.” Seth took note of the Roar singer’s excitement and wrote back, “@katyperry I think we can proooooooobably organize a screening for you.” Hype for the film started at Austin, Texas’ South By Southwest festival on Monday (14Mar16), when Seth and his producing partners screened a rough cut of the movie for the first time. Luckily, the workin-progress received rave reviews by viewers in the audience and critics alike, which was a relief to Seth, who told the crowd in a post-screening question and answer session that the film took eight years to make since studio bosses were nervous about producing in the project. Seth was eager to take a chance at making an adult animated film that had never been done before and he was thrilled when top Hollywood producer Megan Ellison, who counts Zero Dark Thirty and American Hustle as some of her biggest pictures, came on board. “We would look at what animated movies did,” Seth said. “People project emotions on things around them - onto their toys, onto their cars, onto their pets. That’s what Pixar has done for the last 20 years. We thought what would it be like if our food had feelings. We very quickly realised that would be f**ked up, because we eat it.” Sausage Party features voices from Seth, Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, James Franco, Kristen Wiig, Paul Rudd, and Bill Hader, among others and famed Disney composer Alan Menken is slated to create the score.

Tony Bennett leads heartfelt tributes to Frank Sinatra Jr.

Tony Bennett and Mia Farrow are among the celebrities paying tribute to Frank Sinatra Jr. The bandleader son of legendary singer Frank Sinatra died unexpectedly on Wednesday (16Mar16) aged 72 after suffering a heart attack while on tour in Daytona Beach, Florida. Family Guy creator Seth

was quick to remember Sinatra Jr., who he worked with on the animated sitcom. He wrote on his Twitter page: “Frank Sinatra, Jr. was a friend to Family Guy, LABEL and a friend to me. I’m saddened at his passing, but grateful to have known him. RIP, Frank.” Sinatra Jr. was the son of Frank Sinatra and his first wife, Nancy, and the brother of singer and actress Nancy Sinatra and TV producer Tina Sinatra. Tony Bennett also used his Twitter page to pay tribute, writing: “I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Frank Sinatra Jr and send my sympathy to Tina and Nancy and the Sinatra family.” Meanwhile, Sinatra Jr.’s one-time stepmother Mia Farrow, who was married to his father from 1966 to 1968, wrote: “RIP Frank Sinatra Jr. Thoughts with his mother Nancy, sisters Nancy and Tina and his son Michael.” Larry King tweeted, “I always admired Frank Sinatra Jr. He was born with a hard name to live up to, but I loved his talent and his ability to be forthright,” while Jerry O’Connell added on his page, “Rest In Peace Frank Sinatra Jr. CLASS ACT.” Sinatra Jr. was close to Dean Martin’s daughter Deanna during their lives, thanks to their fathers’ involvement in the Rat Pack. Deanna revealed she is “devastated” by his death, adding: “He’s one of the good guys”. “I am shocked and devastated at the loss of my lifelong friend Frank Sinatra Jr.” she told Entertainment Tonight. “He was a brilliant musician, both as a singer and a conductor. He was my Pallie… one of the good guys. My thoughts and prayers are with his loving family.” Crooner Frank’s son had a colourful life - he was kidnapped and held for ransom when he was 19 in 1963, but he escaped his captors and was found walking the streets of Bel Air, Los Angeles. His kidnappers were later convicted. He worked for years as his father’s musical director and conductor, and thrilled sports fans last summer (15) when he performed the U.S. National Anthem at a New York Yankees game.

Vice President of Black River Publishing Celia Froehlig has announced the signing of Ben Caver to the Black River Publishing roster.

We look forward to sharing great success with Ben as his undeniable songs and unmistakable voice continue to draw the attention of the industry’s top artists and executives.” Caver joins Black River Publishing at an exciting time in the company’s trajectory as there are two Black River songs in the Top 5 this week with Kelsea Ballerini’s “Dibs” (Kelsea Ballerini, Josh Kerr, Ryan Griffin and Jason Duke) currently at the top of the charts and “We Went” (John King, Justin Wilson and Matt Rogers) .

CRS 2016 is now in the books and what a great ride that was. It was a thrill to catch up to many of you and to see loads of new talent get ready to spring forward. We’ll be featuring bits and pieces from the grand event in this and future issues. Now let’s get into the music that is setting Country music on fire. Jake Owen is pulling in some rather impressive numbers for his new “American Country Love Song” (RCA Nashville) and that tells us all we need to know about this gem. Sam Hunt is on a major roll and make no mistake about that. He’s taking his new “Make You Miss Me” (MCA Nashville) out for a spin and has been getting rave reviews from many of our music and program directors. Eric Church continues to dominate at the format. His new “Record Year” (Capitol Nashville) is also pulling in some rather spectacular numbers. Watch for some big weeks ahead for this monster jam. Newcomer Brooke Eden is getting a lot of attention and there’s good reason for that. Her new “Daddy’s Money” (Red Bow/Sony) is super catchy and some pretty solid song writing at it’s very best. Last year at CRS that super cool duo in LoCash were spending time with a good many of us. Now it seems they have broken through and in a very big way as their new “I Know Somebody” (Reviver) takes flight. We had a good feeling about them back then and they have not disappointed. Kane Brown is set to take off at Country radio. The new “Used To Love You Sober” (RCA Nashville) is a real delight and could be just the ticket to take this all the way. We are happy to report that Sam Austin is back at the format. The single “Saturday Night” (Plateau) is pulling in many of our Country stations and the word is that this one is a fast rising hit. Those fabulous Brothers Osborne, who got their party started on The Voice (NBC), are bringing it home once again. “21 Summer” (EMI) is their latest and all indicators area that this one is set to go all the way. Just remember that you heard that from me. Chris Chitsey is a hard working recording artist who just keeps getting better. He has it all in full display as the new “Just Don’t Know It Yet” (Premier Nashville) takes flight. Also getting some major love at radio is newcomer Tucker Beathard. The debut single of “Rock On” (Big Machine/Universal) from Tucker proves once again that Scott Borchetta and company know just how to find great artists and take them “all the way”. Nobody is hotter at Country radio than Chris Stapleton. He’s brought back a new brand of Country Rock Blues that is setting the world on fire and good for him. He also has the new “Fire Away” (Mercury Nashville) that has music critics and programmers dazzled once again. It’s set to be another banner year for the amazing and super talented Chris Stapleton. We’re also getting stellar review about the new single from Cam. The powerful and solid “Mayday” (Arista Nashville) is starting to break all over radio so get on it. Southern Halo is getting much love at radio. “Little White Dress” (Ind) is the title to watch for but better yet, give it a few spins and let your audience tell you what’s up. Donica Knight is also on fire with the new single “Love Ain’t A Prize” (MTS) and this could also be well worth your time. Country radio is also loving the new single from John Ratliff called “U” (Ind). Already a smash hit on both our AC & Top40 charts this little song is crossing formats and in a very big way. Joey Canyon is a two time NMA winner and a big congratulations goes out to him from me and all the good folks at New Music Weekly. He’s also taking the new single “White Limousines” (Glo-Dot) out for a spin and the response from Country radio has been over whelming. Eileen Carey is also a big time NMA winner and she too has a new single that is breaking down the house. Her new “Bring On The Big” (Rolley Coaster) is the talk of the town so if you’re not on it now - what are you waiting for? As I mentioned at the top of this article, I had such a great time at CRS 2016 that I’m still trying to recover. The new venue seemed to work out just fine and those record label lunches just keep getting better. I loved getting a photo with my new best friend Tim McGraw and his label CEO, Scott Borchetta. Maybe they need one extra artist on their label?

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 - MARCH 18, 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.
