SPRING FEVER AFTER CRS

Spring is “in the air” & make no mistake about that. For many across the USA this welcome change of season is being embraced with open arms, especially for those that have been hit with the worst weather in years. It’s also that time of year when the new music starts in full bloom. Artists and bands are already thinking of their Summer tour plans and they are getting their music out there by leaps and bounds. All you have to do is look at this week’s charts to see just what we are talking about – they are jammed packed with new singles and many from new artists that are breaking at radio. We are also still recovering from this year’s CRS (Country Radio Seminar) and what a great time it was. New Music Weekly was on hand to interview rising stars of music and that kept us all quite busy. We have enough news and information about artists and bands first hand that we will be able to share with you for the rest of 2015. This has become quite a pivotal event for Country artists and for Mainstream artists as well as programmers and radio stations from all over the country and the world were there in full force. For those that say the music industry is dying out, we can tell you first hand that after our week-long visit to this year’s CRS, that you are dead wrong. One of the many highlights of CRS 2015 had to have been the UMG lunch held at the Ryman. There was a line around the block to get into this event even if you were a registered guest. What was very cool about the show they put on is that it was all acoustic, which was quite appropriate for the room. Artists were also limited to just two songs which meant that they had to put their best foot forward. One of the best moments came with young rising star Kasey Musgraves performing hew new “Biscuits” single. There were also stellar performances from Josh Turner, Eric Church among others, and that made it something extra special. We had to bail out and get back to interviewing artists but what we managed to catch was quite inspiring and we hope they do more of that next time out. The New Faces show once again provided a spotlight on many of the rising starts of Country music. We really loved watching the young and talented Frankie Ballard. He put on quite an electric show and proved that you can do a lot to a crowd even though he’s only had one top hit so far. We expect some great things ahead for this super talented young man. Newcomer Sam Hunt showed us just how much Country is changing. Armed with his two big hits “Leave The Light On” & “Take Your Time”, it was like watching a rapper doing his own rendition of Country. Maddie and Tae, who shot to virtual overnight stardom with the chart-topping success of their debut single, the anti-bro-country anthem “Girl in a Country Song ” where quite delightful and showed some great promise. Eric Paslay‘s set kicked off with “Song About a Girl” and ran through a strong rendition of “She Don’t Love You”. Cole Swindell wrapped up the night with a high-energy performance that began with “Hey Ya’ll” and ripped through “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Chillin’ It” and his current hit, “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.” It was a pretty solid night of performances with CRS awards sprinkled through-out the evening. The final Friday night of CRS 2015 ended on a bit of a sad note for many of us. It was the very last time that the infamous Bridge Bar would hold court for nighttime festivities as the event changes hotels next year. Before we wrap us here, we’d like to give a shout out to the “winners” for this year’s New Music Awards. In this issue you will read a little more about them and we could not be more proud for all the winners and nominees.

Billy Idol was born in Stanmore, Middlesex, England. The name was inspired by a school teacher’s description of Broad as “idle”. In an interview on 21 November 1983, Idol said the name “was a bit of a goof, but also part of the old English school of rock. Billy Fury and all that. It was a ‘double thing’ not just a poke at the superstar-like people ... It was fun, you know?” He wanted to be “Billy Idle” but thought he could not because of the Monty Python star Eric Idle and so chose Idol instead. Idol went to Sussex University, to pursue an English degree and lived on campus but left after year one. He then went on to join the Bromley Contingent of Sex Pistols fans, a loose gang that travelled into town when the band played. Idol first joined Chelsea in 1977 as a guitarist. However, he and Chelsea bandmate Tony James soon left that group and co-founded Generation X, with Idol switching from guitarist to lead singer. Generation X were one of the first punk bands to appear on the BBC Top of the Pops. Generation X signed to Chrysalis Records and released three albums and performed in the 1980 film, D.O.A., before disbanding. Early solo success. Idol moved to New York City in 1981 and became a solo artist, working with ex-Kiss manager Bill Aucoin. Idol’s punk-ish image worked well with the glam rock style of his new partner on guitar, Steve Stevens. Together they worked with bassist Phil Feit and drummer Gregg Gerson. Idol’s solo career began with the Chrysalis Records EP titled Don’t Stop in 1981, which included the Generation X song “Dancing with Myself”, originally recorded for their last album Kiss Me Deadly, and a cover of Tommy James & the Shondells’ song “Mony Mony”. Idol’s debut solo album, Billy Idol, was released in July 1982. Part of the MTV-driven “Second British Invasion” of the United States, that year Idol became an MTV staple with “White Wedding” and “Dancing with Myself”. In 1983, in an effort to introduce Idol to American audiences not yet as familiar with him as those in the UK, Idol’s label released “Dancing with Myself” in the United States in conjunction with a music video directed by Tobe Hooper, which played on MTV for six months. Here in 2015 he continues to tour and there is a new single that has just been released to radio and as soon as those early stats come in we will have them for you right here on the pages of New Music Weekly. 3

Jason Derulo has released one of his best singles to date at Top40 radio. “Want To Want Me” (Beluga Heights/WB) is the new one and our radio panel is all over this gem big time. Watch for some huge weeks ahead for this masterpiece and Jason will no doubt hit the Top5 in record time. You heard this prediction right here. The pairing of Zedd and the young and talented Selena Gomez continues to amaze. Radio just can’t seem to get enough of the single “I Want You To Know” (Interscope) & for very good reason. It’s an excellent duet that should see #1 status sooner than later. The Weekend is on fire and make no mistake about that. “Earned It” (Universal Republic) is the jam that is getting raves out there and this one has all the makings of a very big record. I’m also really loving this new song by Who Is Fancy, “Goodbye” (Silent/Republic) is the track that seems to have come out of no-where. It’s a strong offering that will no doubt build a massive station base. Echosmith is one act that needs to be paid close attention to. This little family outfit from Studio City, CA is really making waves at the format and with their new single “Bright” (WB/WEA) this will no doubt help take them to an even higher level. Good talent always seems to find its way to the top. Olly Murs and paired up with Travie McCoy for a solid winner. “Wrapped Up” (Syco/Columbia) is the jam that is grabbing the attention of many of our music and program directors. Look for some big weeks ahead for this one. The new dream team of Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney seems to be on fire at Top40. “Forty Five Seconds” (DefJam) a song that premiered on this year’s Grammy Awards has become a huge anthem and with this stellar line up – why not. Kelly Clarkson has one of her best singles to date out and about. “Heartbeat Song” (RCA/RLG) is one song you just can’t get out of your head. The American Idol folks have to be grinning ear to ear that one of their own is back on top at radio. It can only help this year’s ratings as well. One Direction has also delivered one of their best track to date. “Night Changes” (Columbia) is an excellent song that has proved it’s had some rather strong staying power. It doesn’t hurt to have their fan base as well. Many out there at radio may tend to overlook Andy Grammer but don’t be doing that. His new “Honey, I’m Good” (S Curve/EMI) is as good as anything out there right now. Give this one a shot and you will be glad you did. Taylor Swift just keeps rolling out the hits. She’s done it again as her new “Style” (Big Machine/Universal) single moves to the top of many of our station lists. She just keep getting richer, Newcomers Mirage Box have been making quite a name for themselves at the format. “Juarez” (Growlyman Endeavors) is the track that is helping to make a name for themselves from “coast to coast”. The Hamiltons are also getting plenty of love from the format. “What Happened To You” (Soul Fire) is their strong debut and watch for some big things ahead for this outfit. Sam Smith is rocking once again as “Lay Me Down” (Capitol) takes flight. Recording artist Brandy Moss Scott is having yet another strong run as her “Bye Bye Baby” (Heavenly Tunes) moves past the rest. Our favorite Crossover artist Bill Curreri has a good thing going with “Fade Away” (Ind) and make no mistake about that. Flaunt is also on the move with their brilliant “Have I Made My Point?” (Anticodon). Holiboiz featuring Yosef is also a chart breaker with “Take Me To Temple” (Studio). Check out the winners for this year’s New Music Awards and many of these artists will be on that list come next year. Let’s get this Spring Break Party started!

Nate Ruess is one special talent. As the lead vocalist for the band Fun, Nate has displayed amazing abilities that tend to cross formats. It’s no real surprise that his new solo effort in “Nothing Without Love” (Fueled By Ramen) is doing so well. We wish him the best with this new challenge but we’re sure that he’s going to do just fine. I really love this new band Walk The Moon. Their new and exciting “Shut Up And Dance” (RCA/RLG) is fast becoming a real favorite among our music and program directors. We’ll see how it all pans out in the weeks to come but so far this one is a solid winner. The pairing of Calvin Harris and the multi-talented Ellie Goulding is paying off big time. As we have heard rumors regarding the two in their personal lives that really has no impact on the fact that their single “Outside” (Columbia) is really building a strong group of early believers. Watch for some big weeks ahead for this gem. It’s so great to see that one of my favorites in Mumford & Sons is back. This band of brilliant guys are taking the new single “Believe” (Glassnote) out for a spin and you really need to give this track a shot. They deserve all the support they can get from this format. Maroon 5 has without a doubt come out with the best single of their career. Adam Levine and company pull out all the stops in their new and super-hot “Sugar” (222/Interscope). It also helps that Adam has such a huge profile on the ever popular The Voice (NBC) but this song would move to the top without all the hype and television activity. It’s always good to see that our good friend Kid Rock is back in action. Normally we would have run into him at CRS but this year he has spent getting set and ready for “First Kiss” (WB/WEA) which has all the making of a big hit single. The Weeknd has a good thing going and make no mistake about that my friends. “Earned It” (Universal Republic) is the track that many of you are raving about and for good reason – it’s such a great radio song. Are you ready for some more Billy Idol? Our photo editor Masika Swain is so excited about Billy’s new “One Breath Away” (BFI) that she can still be heard screaming his praises from West Hollywood to Nashville. I’m not sure what that all means but I guess we’ll find out all about it in the weeks to come. Kerris & Justine Dorsey are getting a good shot at radio and why not. Their new “Best Worst Day Ever” (Walt Disney) appears to be making friends and fans in all the right places. 8 Banks is also getting some well-deserved love at radio. “Beggin For Thread” (Harvest/Capitol) is their current gem and this one has some very good solid potential. Andy Grammer is back at the format and it so needs his talents. “Honey, I’m Good” (S Curve/EMI) is a real great track that should find its way to the top of many AC40 playlists and in record time. It also has huge crossover potential as well. Mirage Box is “on fire” and make no mistake about that. Their debut single entitled “Juarez” (Growlyman Endeavors) is about as hot as they come. In fact it’s been on the “most added” list of our AC40 for about a month now and the single is racing to the top of the charts. Please remember that you heard and read about Mirage Box right here first on the pages of New Music Weekly magazine. Echosmith is having quite the run with their new and exciting “Bright” (WB/WEA). Holiboiz featuring Yosef is rocking strong with “Take Me To Temple” (Studio Records). Flaunt featuring Justin Jennings is also moving fast and furious with “Have I Made My Point?” (Anticodon). Brandy Moss Scott is the one to watch and support with “Bye Bye Baby” (Heavenly Tunes). More next time folks.

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

ALL ROADS

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

thank RADIO as part of being their success. Country artists take the time to talk to stations, and in turn their audience base, and make them feel like they’re part of the family. Because, really, the listener is to the true country music artist. And vice versa. That’s why radio stations like the legendary WSM are known worldwide. Country programmers mingle with artists and attend seminars each year that both inform and entertain. Networking is everything. And it is much easier now than ever before to network and never spend a dime on hotels, meals, and functions. But then, you miss out on the true meaning of CRS. Shaking hands. Have a beverage. Share ideas. No matter WHAT you do in life, it’s always better to try and do it in person. CRS has never lost touch with that human element. CRS brings all together once a year to place a face with the name. Many programmers have gone for years. Many go one year, and move on, and never go again. Same with promoters and record label personnel. But truth be told, CRS is really a must-attend function for programmers, and artists, too. Showcases for new artists are months in the planning for a one hour set to grab somebody’s attention. It’s not by fluke that the Grammy awards named a country crossover hit, “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum, as the song of the year. This multi-format hit had a hook that was unforgettable and all of us could relate to that one person that we really “needed” at some point in our life. Country is real. Country is home. Country is roots. Most, if not all that attend every year, leave with those sentiments. And a sad realization that it will be another year before we all come together again. NMW - MARCH 27, 2015

Legend: Clarkson’s one of the best! John Legend found it ‘an easy decision’ to duet with Kelly Clarkson. The All of Me singer teamed up with the American Idol winner on the track Run, Run, Run which features on her latest album Piece By Piece. And the Oscar winning songwriter couldn’t speak highly enough of the 32-year-old. ‘Kelly’s one of the best singers in the business, I think,” he told ET Online. “When she reached out to me, I thought it was an easy decision. I thought the song was great and it’d be great to reunite with my old friend from Duets.” As well as working with Kelly, John also teamed up with rapper Common on Glory for the Selma soundtrack. Their efforts resulted in an Academy Award for Best Original Song earlier this year, which the 36-year-old admits has changed his life. As for who he would love to make music with next, John confesses he’s running out of options. ‘There’s not many people left!” he laughed. “I’m just focused on trying to make great music and whenever the collaborations come, they come, but I don’t focus on who I want to work with next. It’s usually about just trying to make great music.” And with this in mind, the star revealed that he is working on a follow up to his most recent album, Love in the Future. ‘I’m just about to start now. I don’t know exactly who I’m gonna work with yet, but as soon as I get back from a week off, which is about to happen [on Sunday], I’m gonna start writing new songs,’ he added.

Madonna new single ‘Ghosttown’

Madonna releases ‘Ghosttown’ April 20th on Interscope, taken from her critically acclaimed new album ‘Rebel Heart’. One of the album’s many highlights, ‘Ghosttown’ is co -produced by Madonna and Billboard. Madonna and her band recently performed the song on a Jonathan Ross Show special. The Quietus declared the track ‘a brilliant, desperate and rousing anthem’, with critics round the world having praised the new disc. ‘Madonna is back in the game’ ‘ The Telegraph ‘Rebel Heart - her best album in 17 years and one of the greatest of her career’ ‘ The Sun ‘At her best Madonna remains head and shoulders above everyone else in pop’ ‘ Times ‘Effortlessly good pop’ Drowned In Sound Madonna starts the ‘Rebel Heart’ world tour August 29th in Miami.

Jason Derulo: I’m dating

Jason Derulo has confirmed he is indeed on the dating scene again. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter broke up with his girlfriend of two years Jordin Sparks last September, much to the surprise of many of the stars’ fans. But Jason has now moved on from the split and is looking for another lady love. “I am dating,” he told E! News. Jason is open to romancing a variety of women. He appreciates different forms of beauty, but is most interested in being with a partner who shares his curious nature. “I want somebody that I can talk to and is kind like me and likes to have fun and try new things,’ Jason noted. “I really don’t have a type. I think when someone is beautiful, it comes in all shapes and sizes so in terms of looks, I don’t have a specific type.” But Jason will not tolerate a snobby lover with standards that are impossible to fulfill. He needs someone who is willing to give and take, not a person who is prone to complaining all the time. “I don’t like anyone that is too boojie cause I am not that boojie so it does not work if that’s the case,” the Talk Dirty singer confessed. “I like someone that is smart that I can have an intelligent conversation with and someone that desires to take care of me like I desire to take care of them.” Jason is currently hard at work on a new album. His split from Jordin won’t be the LP’s major theme though. “The whole album is not centered around my breakup and it’s not like ‘the NMW - MARCH 27, 2015

story’ cause I have gone through a lot of other things as well,” he explained. “I have so much to talk about.”

Ringo Starr’s book gets full release

In 2013, Ringo Starr put out a limited edition book combining photos from his archives along with writings about his life. Photograph was originally conceived as a limited edition book of only 2,500 copies, which sold out within weeks. Two years later, Ringo Starr and Genesis Publications announce the ‘Open Edition’ - a more accessible and affordable printing of his book to be released in bookstores this September. The author is donating all royalties to the Lotus Foundation. In Photograph, Ringo Starr reveals never-before-seen photographs and mementos from his archives, sharing memories of his childhood, The Beatles and beyond. Ringos lens captures his Beatles bandmates in pensive and playful moments, portraying them from the point of view of an insider, friend and skilled photographer. In an original manuscript of over 15,000 words, join Ringo growing up amidst the excitement of the emerging Merseybeat scene, as he remembers his first car, drumkits, girls and bands on his ‘road of happy drumming’. From Pwllheli to Delhi, obscurity to superstardom, his travels are recounted with honesty and hilarity. ‘I love pictures put together, showing different times of your life,’ Ringo said about the book, ‘At the time, I never thought that there would be a whole book of my photographs.’

Will I Am troubled by tuna

will.i.am thinks people will look back at humans in amazement when the world runs out of tuna. The Black Eyed Peas frontman has become increasingly interested in environmentalism over the years. The 40-year-old musician fears that soon major changes will have taken place on Earth and there will be no way back. “Let’s fast forward to 2060 - I’ll be like 90, the world is different, I don’t know if there’s tuna, we probably ate all the tuna. And we’ll be asking, ‘How did we get here?’ Then we’ll rewind back to now and they’re going to say, ‘We can’t believe the people, as intelligent as they were - they could create artificial intelligence and incredible computers could not realise that sustainability and recycling should be what we do naturally,” he told British magazine Hello! The star can pinpoint exactly when he realised he wanted to make a change in the world. It was after a huge Black Eyed Peas concert in 2009. Although he was on a high from the performance, he was dismayed when he saw all the rubbish which had been caused by the crowd and it provided him with a stark realisation that he was contributing to the world’s issues. He now worries that making environmentally friendly choices has become hard for people as they aren’t readily available, so he’s made it his mission to change that. It’s why he’s partnered with Coca-Cola on Ekocycle, which aims to make startling lifestyle pieces from recycled goods. “I just think people have been hypnotised into thinking that green is faux and odd and they’re not even challenging it,” he said.

Legend: Blurred Lines verdict’s slippery slope

John Legend thinks the verdict in the Blurred Lines copyright case could be ‘a slippery slope’. Singers Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams recently lost their court battle against Marvin Gaye’s family over their 2013 hit single. The judge found that the track infringed the copyright of Marvin’s 1977 hit Got to Give it Up and his family were awarded $7.3 million in damages. While the pair have appealed the decision, singer John believes the verdict could set a scary precedent for artists creating music inspired by others. ‘You have to

be careful when it comes to copyrights, whether just sounding like or feeling like something is enough to say you violated their copyrights,’ he told the Associated Press. ‘[I’m] a little concerned that this verdict might be a slippery slope.” While Marvin’s children, Nona, Frankie and Marvin Gaye III were jubilant at the judge’s verdict, Robin and Pharrell’s lawyer Howard E. King confirmed they are planning to appeal. “We owe it to songwriters around the world to make sure this verdict doesn’t stand,” King told Fox Business Network. “My clients know that they wrote the song Blurred Lines from their hearts and souls and no other source. We are going to exercise every post trial remedy we have to make sure this verdict does not stand. We look at it as being in the seventh inning of a game that could go into extra innings.” While the 38-year-old and the Happy hit maker were found guilty, rapper T.I who features on the record, was not involved with copyright infringement.

Nick Jonas: I’m ready to be slimed

Nick Jonas thinks getting slimed at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is a rite of passage. The American singer will play host at this year’s ceremony which takes place on March 28 and will see Iggy Azalea, Jennifer Hudson and 5 Seconds of Summer take to the stage. The awards are known for covering famous faces in gunge, and Nick isn’t afraid of the slime. ‘I feel like it’s an honour. It’s a rite of passage,’ he laughed to People. ‘It was definitely a dream as a kid to be a part of this show. I grew up a huge SpongeBob SquarePants and Rocket Power fan.’ Nick rose to fame as part of sibling group Jonas Brothers. He and his brothers Kevin and Joe even had their own series on the Disney Channel and became a phenomenon with screaming girls the world over. Since the band dissolved in 2013 Nick has gone on to achieve solo success with his self-titled record and an acting role on show Kingdom. ‘Stepping out on my own and not having my brothers with me all the time has been an adjustment. But I’ve had more positive experiences than negative ones. I’m thrilled how this past year has gone,’ he smiled. While his siblings have been supportive of his career choices, they did give him some flak for a raunchy photoshoot he posed for. Nick was featured in Flaunt magazine last year grabbing his crotch, much to the amusement of Joe and Kevin. ‘They have definitely taken one or two shots in a playful way. But I expected it. We’re brothers. It’s our jobs to give each other c**p,’ he said.

Ellie Goulding ‘keen to get married’

Ellie Goulding is reportedly keen to get married and have kids with her boyfriend. The 28-year-old singer confirmed her relationship with British musician Dougie Poynter last May and the pair have been inseparable ever since. It looks like true romance for Ellie, who is allegedly looking to settle down with her beau. “In many ways this is the happiest Ellie’s ever been. Dougie’s so kind and attentive - not to mention drop-dead gorgeous - that sometimes she has to pinch herself to prove its’ real,” an insider told British magazine Look. “They’ve chatted about having kids. And they’ve talked marriage they want a week-long wedding in Goa or an abandoned Polynesian beach.” Despite Ellie reportedly being excited at the prospect of tying the knot, she is also said to be frightened, as she has a lot to lose if it were to go wrong. The blonde beauty is so loved up that she has apparently been “thrown out of kilter” by her feelings for Dougie. But some of her girlfriends may not have the same outlook on their pal going the distance so soon. Ellie counts fellow A-listers such as Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez as close friends. “Ellie loves hanging out with her girls, just being young and free. I wouldn’t be surprised if 21


they warn Ellie off rushing things and making mistakes. With all the travelling that her lifestyle brings, hanging out with Taylor and so is the closest Ellie gets to normal 20-something life,” an insider added. “So when it comes to marriage, she’s thinking, ‘Why rock the boat?’” If she and Dougie are still together next year, Ellie is apparently considering proposing on February 29 as part of the leapyear tradition in which women get down on one knee.

Chris Brown: I’m off probation!

FOX’s hit show American Idol is experiencing strong ratings in its 14th season with Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta in the driver’s seat as the show’s new in-house Mentor. Borchetta, who has been working with the Idol contestants since November of last year, is prominently featured on the show each week where he advises this season’s crop of eclectic and edgy young singers on song selection, stage presence and fan engagement.

New Music Weekly held court in the media room during this year’s CRS meeting and interviewing many artists and bands. (Left to right) Buck McCoy joined manager Adele Borchetta, recording artist Jimmy Charles and NMW co-editor Larry Weir for a get together during the weeklong event.

Chris Brown is celebrating the fact he is no longer on probation. The 25-year-old singer was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service following his attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. And in court on Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin officially ended Brown’s punishment. ‘IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!! (sic),’ the R&B crooner wrote to his over 14 million Facebook followers after the ruling. Judge Brandlin closed out Brown’s assault case entirely, noting the star completed his court-ordered community service and satisfied the terms of his probation. According to USA Today, Brown and his lawyer Mark Geragos hugged each other in an elevator shortly after the hearing concluded. Geragos is elated his client is now officially a free man.“I couldn’t be more delighted,” the attorney gushed. “He is in a spot right now and a place right now that I couldn’t be prouder of him.’ Geragos also noted Brown’s release from probation is ‘a monumental feat for him’. The good news may be a surprise to many, as Brown was punished significantly in the recent past for numerous probation violations. His probation was revoked in January after another shooting occurred at a concert he performed in San Jose, which left five people injured. It was also revoked in 2013 after Brown was accused of hitting a man outside a Washington, D.C. hotel in October that year. In 2014, he ended up serving time in prison after he was kicked out of rehab.

Celine Dion announces Vegas return

Celine Dion promises to deliver ‘high, happy notes’ when she returns to perform in Vegas. The Canadian hit maker has held a residency spot at Caesar’s Palace on and off since 2003, but last August she cancelled future shows in order to care for her husband Rene Angelil, who is suffering from throat cancer. But fortunately Celine is returning to the Las Vegas Strip in late August and she appreciates fans’ support through her family’s trying time. “It is very emotional for me and I’m anticipating the emotions to grow even more as the date gets closer,” she told People magazine. “It’s very touching. Every night is a new show . I promise there will be high, happy notes.” As well as pulling the plug on her Nevada dates, the 46-year-old had to cancel her Asian tour last year so she could focus on providing Rene with the support he needs. “I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children,” she explained to People at the time. “I also want to apologise to all my fans everywhere for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support.” The My Heart Will Go On singer and Rene married in 1994 and they share three kids together. This is 73-year-old Rene’s second battle with cancer after previously being treated for the disease in 1999. Sam Smith set for Spectre song William Hill have slashed the price of Sam Smith singing the next Bond theme following a significant move and he is now odds on at 2/5 (from 2/1) to sing the title

song for Spectre. His nearest challenger is Adele at 7/1, with Ed Sheeran an 8/1 shot. ‘We would be astonished if there is not something in this gamble, either he has got the gig or they must be in negotiations,’ said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. Who Will Sing The Theme for Spectre: 2/5 Sam Smith, 7/1 Adele, 8/1 Ed Sheeran, 10/1 Lana del Rey, 10/1 Lorde, 25/1 Noel Gallagher, 33/1 Coldplay. 33/1 Ellie Goulding,40/1 One Direction, 50/1 Tom Jones, Others on request Meanwhile Aidan Turner, who plays the title character in BBC1’s Poldark is fast becoming a contender to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, with Britain’s biggest bookmaker William Hill cutting his price for the second day in a row from an original 33/1 into 10/1. ‘Poldark is making Darcy look like a dandy ‘ we believe Aidan can write his own ticket after this,’ said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. William Hill Odds - Next James Bond: 2/1 Idris Elba, 9/2 Tom Hardy, 6/1 Henry Cavill, 13/2 Michael Fassbender, 8/1 Jamie Dornan, 10/1 Aidan Turner, 10/1 Orlando Bloom, 10/1 Richard Armitage, 14/1 Dan Stevens, 16/1 Daniel Day-Lewis, 16/1 Gerard Butler, 16/1 James McAvoy, 20/1 Tom Hiddlestone, 25/1 Damian Lewis, 25/1 Sam Worthington, 33/1 OR BIGGER THE REST.

Scherzinger ‘cut up over Hamilton remarks’

Nicole Scherzinger apparently doesn’t understand how Lewis Hamilton could dismiss their breakup so easily. The pair have been on and off since 2007 but they called things quits, seemingly for good, in February. When questioned about their latest split recently, Lewis acted relatively nonchalant and said it “isn’t a problem” because they’ve been in the same position so many times before. He added that he feels “stronger than ever”. Apparently his remarks didn’t sit well with the former Pussycat Dolls beauty. “She was doing a good job of moving on, but these comments have really upset her,” a source sighed to British magazine Star. “She doesn’t understand how he can be ‘stronger than ever’ when they were an item for so long. It’s making her question their whole relationship.” Nicole and Lewis’ relationship has been notoriously up and down, with rumours 36-yearold Nicole’s desire to marry and have children didn’t sit well with the 30-year-old Formula 1 star. “I developed a mental attitude I would like to say was impenetrable,” Lewis told the BBC. “Of course, in previous years it has been the case where it [a break up] has affected my life in general. “But I feel I still carry that kind of mentality from last year - and while it’s not been easy, having been in this position before I feel stronger than ever, so I don’t feel it’s going to be a problem.”

Cannon responds to Carey cheating rumours

Nick Cannon doesn’t think he was the ‘mother f’er’ that Mariah Carey sang about during a concert in Tokyo last year. The actor and television presenter was married to the We Belong Together singer for six years before they separated last year. In October, Mariah was performing the Billie Holiday classic Don’t Explain when she added to the lyric ‘I know you cheat’ the term ‘mother f’er’. And during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Nick was asked if his estranged wife was referring to him. ‘But weren’t [those] the lyrics already?” the 34-year-old asked host Andy Cohen. “She just added the ‘mother f’er’ to it. Was I the mother f’er? I have.no... I don’t believe that was about me.” The father-of-two was taking part in a game of ‘Plead the Fifth’. As well as denying that he cheated on the mother of his children, Nick also got the chance to take a swipe at Mariah’s critically panned film, Glitter. However the star didn’t rise to the bait. ‘Awesome movie! Honest opinion, great movie, even better soundtrack,” he said. “We have watched that movie together...I loved it so much before I got married, and she actually doesn’t like it...but I actually really love it.” Mariah wasn’t the only famous female that Nick discussed during his appearance on the show. He also took the opportunity to talk about Amber Rose, who he manages. ‘[It’s] that she is one of those people that’s just, uh, probably out to just sell herself for the fame,’ he said when asked about the biggest conception about the 31-year-old. ‘Really, she’s a very intelligent lady that actually has an incredible story that the world will get the opportunity to hear very soon.”

James Carothers Makes His Move

James Carothers is fast becoming a name in Country music. His new album Honky Tonk Land is currently out and it showcases this gutbucket baritone with a stoneCountry delivery bringing to mind influences from Waylon Jennings to Johnny Cash. We spent some time with him during CRS and he gave us a better insight to what he’s all about. Renegade Radio of Nashville recently 24

singled Carothers out as a “New Face of Country” and Music Row magazine’s Robert K. Oermann, speaking about his new “I Must Be Alive,” single said recently, “this moaning ode to a lost love has a super deep resonance and burning passion. As a song, it’s quite well crafted, with admirably dynamic melodic range as well as sturdy lyrics”. After some 20 years in New Mexico, the singer recently returned to his home state of Tennessee. Born in McNairy County, Tennessee, home of Walking Tall icon Sheriff Buford Pusser, he spent his boyhood leading the a cappella singing in the Church of Christ before his family moved out west. “My dad was with the county sheriff’s department in Selmer – after Buford died, of course – and my mother taught school nearby in Adamsville,” James recalls. “After we moved to New Mexico I still came back to Tennessee every summer to stay with my grandparents.” Now with his own young family, he is once again close to his Southern roots. This was his first visit to CRS and he hosted a little breakfast that featured biscuits and gravy. He also played a few songs acoustically as a treat for his guests. James sights influences for his new project as artists ranging from “Waylon, Willie, Merle, and Johnny Cash. “When it comes to my singing style, George Jones and Keith Whitley were especially my favorites”. As far as writers go, it is guys like Billy Joe Shaver and Hank Williams – you can’t get much better than that.” James recorded at Honky Tonk Land studios & is looking forward to live dates this coming Summer. “My ultimate goal is to make good music that I can be proud of,” Carothers says. “People like me have got these dang voices and rhythms floating around our heads, and we can either get them out or just keep singing to ourselves in the grocery store. We know he’s going to be doing much better than performing in a store and we’ll be keeping you posted on the future works of rising Country star James Carothers here in upcoming issues of New Music Weekly.

Rolling Stones delay US tour announcement

The Rolling Stones expected American tour announcement for today looks like it has been delayed. The Stones team have been frantic putting up billboards in main cities across America in the past week with the hashtage #satisfactionThursday. A 14-date tour was expected to be announced today. Nashville’s Mayor Karl Dean went as far as to say that an announcement for his city would be made Thursday at 11am. ‘I know I have an announcement to make at LP Field. I don’t want to say anything prematurally but lets just say don’t ‘Start Me Up’ on that topic. I can’t give you any ‘Satisfaction’ answering your questions. And if you bug me about it I’m going to tell you to ‘Get Off My Cloud’. Late Wednesday, his office said that the announcement had been delayed and would now be made at a later date. The Stones upcoming Stones tour was due to start in San Diego in May and include a complete performance of the 1971 classic ‘Sticky Fingers’ album.

Gaye family set lawyers onto T.I.

The family of Marvin Gaye seem to have been inspired by their recent court win over Robin Thicke. Now they are going after T.I.. The singer’s family, who won a $7.4 million judgement last week when it was found that Robin Thicke and Pharrell William’s Blurred Lines was substantially copied from Gaye’s Got to Give It Up, are evidently still not satisfied. It was later revealed that they were considering a new case against Williams over his mega-hit Happy and its similarities to Gaye’s Ain’t That Peculiar and, now, are going back to the judge in the Blurred Lines case to get further money.

Country Radio Seminar had a number of guest appearances throughout the entire week. Keith Urban took some time out of his busy schedule to stop by and visit with industry folks. Pictured (L-R): Keith Urban and Leslie Armstrong NMW - MARCH 27, 2015

In the new motions, they want the judge to consider overturning the jury’s decision that rapper T.I., (Clifford Harris, Jr.) who also appeared on the record, was not responsible for the parts of the song that were copied. In addition, they want the judge to add Universal Music, Interscope Records and Star Trek Entertainment to the list of entities that infringed on Got to Give It Up. At stake could be Universal Music’s ability to further distribute the song Blurred Lines in physical form or via download sites. The Gayes have said that the barring of sales of the song is not their aim, but only an end to the means of negotiating future royalties on all sales. The real question here is, when is enough enough. Most legal experts have already questioned the jury verdict which, essentially, found that the rhythm and arrangement were what was copied from the original record and NOT the song, setting a new precedent in copyright cases, one that opens the doors to a much more fuzzy interpretations of what is true infringement. The Gaye family had best be careful in their further overreach as it could have an effect on Thicke and Williams’ upcoming appeal.

Bieber sued again by neighbour

Justin Bieber has reportedly been sued once again by his former neighbour. The 21-year-old singer pled no contest to vandalism after being accused of egging the house of Jeff Schwartz in January 2014. Bieber shelled out $80,000 to Schwartz to repair the damage and was put on probation for the incident. And now TMZ is reporting Schwartz has brought forth another lawsuit against the heartthrob, accusing Bieber’s entourage of causing emotional distress just before the incident. According to legal documents obtained by the website, Bieber’s former neighbour, who resides in Calabasas, California, claims the singer’s bodyguard called him a ‘little Jew boy’ before the egging incident took place. Apparently during Memorial Day weekend in 2013, Schwartz and his friend walked over to Bieber, asking him to stop speeding around the neighbourhood and NMW - MARCH 27, 2015

putting people’s lives in jeopardy with reckless driving. Shortly after Schwartz confronted the superstar, Bieber’s bodyguard is said to have stepped up and called him a ‘little Jew boy’ before repeatedly asking, “What are you going to do about it, Jew boy?” ‘Schwartz also claims Bieber hurled obscenities at his wife and minor daughter,’ TMZ writes. In 2014 the Baby crooner was making headlines for all the wrong reasons, as in addition to egging his neighbour’s home, he was caught driving without a licence. Bieber celebrated his 21st birthday earlier this month on March 1 and even though he’s offered several public apologies already, the star made it clear now that he’s reached the milestone age his behaviour will be changing for good “Thanks for all the birthday love. Grateful for everything. Let’s be better this year. Thanks,” he wrote to all his fans on Twitter “I really really really really really really like you (sic)”

It will be released as a double CD; four-LP set on 180-gram vinyl; and digitally beginning March 31, 2015.

Liza Minnelli in rehab

Liza Minnelli has entered rehab. The 69-year-old singer is being treated for substance abuse in a rehab facility in Malibu, California. A representative for Liza confirmed that she had entered the facility several days ago, and is making ‘excellent progress’ so far, according to TMZ.com. The website also reports that Liza’s main downfall is alcohol. This is not the first time Liza has been to rehab. Her most recent trip was in 2004 but she has struggled to stay on track. ‘Liza has valiantly battled substance abuse over the years,’ the representative added to TMZ. Addiction runs in Liza’s family as her mother Judy Garland also suffered from her own addictions before overdosing in 1969. In an interview with The Guardian newspaper back in 2008, Liza admitted that she has always struggled to control her addiction to alcohol. ‘My whole life, this disease has been rampant,’ she said. ‘I inherited it, and it’s been horrendous, but I have always asked for help.’ In the same interview, Liza also admitted having addictions to prescription drugs including Valium, which she says she was put on

In celebration of Record Store Day, on April 18th, Metallica will release No Life ‘til Leather as a limited edition cassette. The seven tracks were recorded in 1982 in Tustin, CA by the band’s original lineup of James Hetfield: lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Lars Ulrich: drums, Dave Mustaine: lead guitar, and Ron McGovney: bass. Straight from the archives, the original source material has been re-mastered to maximize the sound potential for 2015 without altering the original mixes. No Life ‘til Leather will be available for purchase at your favorite local record store and on Metallica.Com. The collection has never been available commercially until now.

Eric Church is back to his winning ways. He’s getting praise from programmers and music directors for his new single entitled “Like A Wrecking Ball” (EMI Nashville). Also having a solid run over the past week weeks is Jason Aldean. Many of our reporters can’t seem to get enough of his new “Tonight Looks Good On You” (Broken Bow). It’s actually one of his best to date if that can be possible. Mo Pitney has also been getting a lot of love from the format. “Country” (Curb) is the single that is making it all happen for Mo and watch for some breakout weeks ahead for this gem in the coming weeks. The Eli Young Band has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Turn It On” (Universal Republic) is their latest masterpiece. Please make sure to add this one to your list and you’ll be glad you did. Eric Lee Beddingfield is also getting some big action from many of our music and program directors. They just can’t seem to get enough of his new “I Just Wanna Play” (Rebel Dawg). I have to admit that I’m really loving this track too. Lady Antebellum are on fire and there is no stopping this vocal powerhouse. “Long Stretch Of Love” (Capitol Nashville) is their latest and once again it showcases their talents as they move past the rest of the pack. Dan & Shay are building their fortunes station by station. “Nothin’ Like You” (WB/WEA) is their latest offering and this one deserves your immediate attention. You won’t find two nicer kids than these two raising stars. It’s great to see that Joe Nichols is alive and well. “Hard To Be Cool” (Red Bow/Sony) is his latest and what a great song this is. We wish him the best as he moves up Country charts from coast to coast. Joe is also one of our favorites at New Music Weekly and our stations love him. Carrie Underwood is back with another masterpiece. “Little Toy Guns” (19 Recordings Limited/Arista Nashville) is the gem we are talking about. The powers that be over at American Idol are watching this one closely. Kip Moore continues his winning ways. This time out he’s pushing his new “I’m To Blame” (MCA Nashville) and it’s paying off big time for Kip. Brad Paisley is on the move with his new “Crushin’ It” (Arista Nashville). Our good pal Kenny Chesney is rocking strong with his latest in “Wild Child” (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville). It’s set to become another #1 for this Country icon. Rising star Eileen Carey is on the move with “Sweet Love” (RolleyCstr Music). We caught up with her at CRS and had a real nice chat. I hope to be sharing more about her in the next few issues. Tom MacLear now joined by his Friends are on the move with “If I Ain’t Broke” (Meg). We also caught up with this recent NMW “winner” and what a super guy he is. Pat Waters is making friends in all the right places. His “Crazy That Way” (Big Valley Agency) is just what the doctor ordered. Tim McGraw has teamed up with Catherine Dunn for a winning combination in “Diamond Rings And Barstools” (Big Machine/Universal). Watch for some quick moves ahead to #1 for this monster smash hit single. Bobby Wills is on the move with “Never Didn’t Love You” (Willing Nashville). Matt Farris and his “She’s Done” (Skytone) appears to be getting some strong support. Jill & Julia are also getting some love at the format thanks to their new “Cursed” (Lamon) single. Sam Austin is also rocking strong with “It Looks Like Rain” (Plateau). We had such a blast at CRS 2015 that everyone here is still recovering. In this issue we also honor the award “winners” for this year’s New Music Weekly Awards. I’d like to extend my personal congratulations to all of the winners and nominees. We’ll see you back here next time and thanks for all your kind words and messages.

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 27, 2015

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.
