NMW - MAY 9, 2014

Vol. 16 Issue 3

We are thrilled to be bringing you a special Independent Music Issue honoring the labels, artists and bands that are the real backbone of the music industry. As consolidations and cutbacks continue to haunt the major record labels, the real stories and talent are to be found in the independent arena. In fact all you have to do to see how many new acts are getting their start just look at our music charts. There you will find the mix of indie and major artists and how they really size up among our radio stations and programmers. Although many are out there looking to get the “big deal” and get signed, one must consider what has been going on as of late. The deals that the majors have been offering artists and bands are not to their advantage in any way. They are now locking in the new upstarts as publisher, manager, booking agent & record label all in one. It’s the only way they can make any money and many of the newer acts are left with very little at the end of all this. For some, it would have been better to march along on their own dime and at least attain a little control. The deals are just as bad for contestants on music shows like American Idol and The Voice, but that’s seems to be the price paid for fame these days. The only way to get a good deal to your advantage is to get your program started at radio on your own. The best plan is to become your own label, build your team and go to work. Radio programmers are very open these days to good records regardless of what label they are on. Once a band or recording artist builds a strong profile at radio, the labels will come calling but with a much better offer. It’s called playing the field from a position of strength. Once you’ve got good numbers, then you can work with a major and the points will be structured far more in your favor. If you want to look at how it’s done the very best way, use the artists Macklemore and Ryan Lewis as the perfect example. They marched all the way to #1 on the pop charts many times on their own label. Most of it had to do with the fact that the music was strong and radio loved it. The duo also was awarded multiple Grammy Awards and the rest is history. For independent record labels, your best bet is to build a strong roster. Getting an imprint deal for your small label might be just what the doctor ordered. You sign three to four acts, artists or bands and then build a story for each. Labels are not so much looking for a “one-off”, but if you can provide a number of interesting acts, it then becomes a more viable commodity to them. It’s strength in numbers they are interested in and it could make all the difference as you build your small label. Most of what the independent artist or label needs to get started can be found right here on the pages of New Music Weekly. Our panel of radio stations, from Top40, AC to Country, are open to new artists and music. Most of them could care less about what label you are on, they are just looking for good music to program. In fact some of our programmers prefer to support the indie artist or band over a major artist. The major labels don’t supply the goods and services they once did, especially to the secondary market stations. Indie artists and their labels go all out to support radio and that can really make all the difference in being successful in this very competitive field. Here at NMW we will continue to offer the very best “tools of the trade” for the independent artist, band and label. It was our promise from the very start of our organization to help “level the playing field”. For many of you the best is yet to come.

Newcomer Ariana Hodes is set to break at Country radio in the weeks to come with her debut single “Brand New Key” (Ocala Records). Mike Borchetta help make the new discovery for his Ocala Record label and joining Big Round Music, only good things are on the horizon. Her first love however is acting and for most hopeful young actresses, it was a long, hard stretch of highway between Concord, New Hampshire and Beverly Hills, but Ariana made the journey seem easy. This Summer she’ll hit the road again for a move to Nashville with her eye on the prize of Country music success. Born into a musical family, performing has always been in her blood. “My mom was in a folk band at the New England Conservatory in Boston when she placed an ad for a guitarist. My dad was a student at Boston College Law School and answered the ad. Soon they formed an award-winning family rock-band called Peggosus. ”My parents used to take my brother and me with them to their gigs. We were their roadies, stage hands and even handled the merch table. I was always around show business and started performing in community theater plays and musicals when I was around 13.” It wasn’t long before Hollywood started taking notice and this dark haired beauty began to rack up an impressive list of stage and screen credits, but Ariana wanted more. In early 2014, she decided it was time to spread her wings and return to her musical roots. With mentoring and guidance from old family friend, Mike Borchetta, and his wife, Martha, Ariana entered a recording studio. Her first single, a soulful, bouncy cover of Melanie’s seventies mega hit “Brand New Key”, is ready to hit the charts and Ariana is anxious to once again hit the road. This time she’ll meet and perform for Country radio programmers and their staffs. “Music has always been a strong presence in my life and of equal interest to me creatively as acting, writing and producing -- but the real catalyst for this effort was realizing that I felt incomplete when not singing and making music. I’m doing this to find my voice, literally and figuratively.” We’ll be following her success story closely here at New Music Weekly and we all wish her the very best. 3

Miley Cyrus has held on to a new formula for making hits thanks in part to her new image and label change. “Adore You” (RCA/RLG) is her latest and it fits exactly where she’s at these days and that’s in a pretty smart place. Newcomers Nico & Vinz are finding love from radio programmers. “Am I Wrong” (WB/WEA) is the jam that seems to be pulling in calls and tweets every time it gets played. Many of our music and program directors concur that there is something very special going on here. Fitz & The Tantrums are making the most of their ten seconds of fame. They may just keep it all going as their new “The Walker” (Elektra/WEA) takes flight. We’ll see how it all plays out for them in the weeks and months to come but so far we have a solid winner here. The Kongos are an act to be watched closely. Better than that just throw a couple of spins in for “Come With Me Now” (Epic/Sony) and get your listeners all riled up. It’s been working for a good many of our reporters. One Republic seem to never run out of gas and that should be of no surprise to those that have been following them. Mark another gem down for their latest in “Love Runs Out” (Interscope). There is a good shot that this could be their very next #1 single. Iggy Azalea has teamed up with Charli XCX for a real gem and make no mistake about it. “Fancy” (Island) is the track that is setting the music world on fire. Remember that you heard about them first right here on the pages of NMW. Tinashe joins the always brilliant Schoolboy Q for a real miracle. “2 On” (RCA/RLG) is their new one and it’s getting raves from many of our music and program directors. You may need to spend a little time with this one by the water cooler. Magic is another act that is killing it out there in radio-land. “Rude” (RCA/RLG) is the single and I must tell you that this one is so catchy that I can’t get it out of my head. Alicia Keys brings some brilliance into Top40 radio just when we need it most. “It’s On Again” (RCA/RLG) is her latest and this one I believe is her best so far over the past few years. We’ll see how it all plays out and watch it make some bold and beautiful moves in the weeks to come. Ed Sheeran has found a way to set Top40 radio on-fire and make no mistake about that. “Sing” (Atlantic/WEA) is his latest and radio loves this track almost as much as they love Taylor Swift. It sure was a smart move for Ed to spend some time with her as it’s opened up a bigger fan base for him to be sure. Phillip Phillips is making his American Idol family proud. “Raging Fire” (19/Interscope) is such a great track for this talented guy and you can expect this one to become another music anthem. That Shakira &Rihanna pairing continues to reap big rewards. “Can’t Remember To Forget You” (Sony Music Latin) is fast becoming everybody’s “top of the hour” song and for good reason, it’s just that strong. I don’t really care what anybody thinks, to me the best song out there is by an act called The Chainsmokers. “Selfie” (Dim Mak) is so funny and brilliant that it stands on its own merit. It might be a song that burns out fast but while it’s on you can really feel the heat. Beyonce continues to work her magic at the format. So many songs are coming off her latest album project that we’ll just have to see where “Partition” (Columbia/Sony) ends up. So far most of the tracks have found their way towards the top but seem to slow down. This is all set to change very soon for this super talented lady of music. Idina Menzel is finding love out there for her “Let It Go” (Walt Disney) single. Recording artist Benzo is finding much support for his debut smash “Heart Beat” (New Terra). Bad Mary is moving fast and furious with their stellar “Better Days” (Dead Pill). Ed Barker and Lance Ellington have a huge hit with “When You Smile” (EBR) and newcomer Ethan Bortnick is set to take over with his “Anything Is Possible” (Symphony Of Keys). I’ll have more for you next time my good peeps.

Ed Sheeran has released one of his best to date. “Sing” (Atlantic/WEA) is such a huge hit that it’s busting out across multiple formats, This kid has come a long way from living on the streets and his story just keeps getting better. The Neon Trees are a real crowd pleaser. We are thrilled to see that their current single “Sleeping With A Friend” (Mercury) being welcomed with open arms. We wish this multi-talented outfit the very best with this fresh and exciting cut. Ingrid Michaelson is getting a real buzz out there at radio. It’s all due to the fun and exciting “Girls Chase Boys” (Cabin 24) that is just getting stated. Paramore is fast becoming one of the break-out bands so far this year. Their new and powerful “Ain’t It Fun” (Fueled By Ramen) is just what this band needed to going from underground to super pop band. You can bet you’ll be seeing and hearing some bigger things ahead from this amazing act. Andy Grammer is back at the format and that’s always a good thing. The single “Back Home” (S Curve/EMI) is just what he needed to get back on the charts and in a very big way. U2 can always light up a playlist and they will be doing it again. “Invisible” (Interscope) is the touch of magic that many of our AC music and program directors have been waiting for. Ethan Bortnick is a name that you may not be that familiar with but that is all set to chance. His new single “Anything Is Possible” (Symphony Of Keys) is nothing short of brilliant. It’s topped our “most added” chart for weeks now and the single is starting to break up the charts at record speed. Please remember that you heard about Ethan Bortnick first right here on the pages of NMW. Newcomer Susan Toney is also getting plenty of attention at the format. The single “The Trail Of Light And Dark” (Strange Child) is the song that is helping to make great things happen for her and for good reason. Better Than Ezra are back and proving once again that they are the real deal. “Crazy Luck” (End) is such a great record that we expect to see big things ahead. Some of our key programmers agree that this one has what it takes to break into the Top10. The magical duo of MacLear & Quinn are having an amazing run up the charts. “Only One For Me” (Meg) is the track that is making it all happen, Recording artist Sam Smith is off and running at the format. “Stay With Me” (Capp) is really a great track and watch for some special things ahead for this talented artist. His Dreams Of Lions are fast becoming a very big deal. “Novel” (Droggmore) is their debut single and this track has had nothing but amazing weeks. The band is here to stay for awhile. British alto sax player turned super recording artist Ed Barker is on fire. He has teamed up with vocalist Lance Ellington for the brilliant smash “When You Smile” (EBR). Jennifer Ashley is beginning to make some major noise at the format. Her new single entitled “Back Where We Started” (SNMG/RED) is on fire and building steam fast. She’s an 18 year old singer from Long Island New York. Jennifer is currently is a first year business student at F.A.U. University in Jupiter Florida. The group Bad Mary is breaking fast with their stellar debut “Better Days” (Dead Pill) and it just keeps getting better for them. Allen D continues his magic as his “You & The Night & the Music” (New Terra) builds stronger each and every week. Marsha Jewell continues her #1 ways and we are so happy for her. The brilliant single “Butterfly” (Jewell Lane) has been impossible to beat, especially on our AC40 Indie chart. Her state of Arkansas got hit recently with some bad tornados and we wish her and the area a speedy recovery. All of us hope that you enjoy this very special Independent Music Issue as we all had a blast putting it all together, I’ll have more for you on the greatest AC hits across the good ole USA next time right here my good friends.

ALL ROADS

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

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

MUSIC BIZ Michael Jackson back: The inside story of ‘Xscape’ Full album details on Michael Jackson’s posthumous album ‘Xscape’, speaking to L.A. Reid and an all-star cast of producers who re-imagined archival tracks by the King of Pop. Reid tells Billboard how ‘Xscape’ -- eight tracks of Jackson vocals set to new music from Timbaland and J-Roc, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain, the former A&M Records executive who is co-executor of the Jackson estate with Branca -- came to be. At first, Reid says, “I had no idea what was in the vaults.” But he says this now with a smile, and the confidence that comes with pursuing an unorthodox strategy and creating something no one believed possible an album that deserves to be discussed in the context of the remarkable music that Jackson made from Off the Wall in 1979 to Invincible in 2001. When first listening to the source material “You can hear [Jackson’s] foot in the booth when he’s singing, and his fingers snapping,” says Jerkins. “It was all raw, it was real. It wasn’t like, ‘Take the snaps out, take the stomps out.’ No - it’s real. It’s him in the booth, and he’s feeling what he’s doing.”

Minaj ‘caught acting bug’ Nicki Minaj wants to do more acting after ‘getting her feet wet’. The musician stars in The Other Women, with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. Although her role in the film was small, Nicki wants to be able to pursue more roles while still maintaining her music career. “It gave me an idea as to what the world would be like... And now that I know it’’s something I can do, I think I want to expand a role eventually,” she told MTV News. Nicki is currently working on her third studio album, the first since 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Despite her busy schedule, the 31year-old would consider making a film if the perfect role came along. “I am going on auditions, and I’’m trying to find the right role with the right director and the right writers,” she said. “I want to be part of something from the beginning stage this time, and I want the role to be custom-made for me.’ Nicki wouldn’t rule out any genre, and says she hopes to make another comedy some day. She is also interested in high-budget action films. ‘I have such a versatile personality,’ she explained. ‘Some days I feel like I wanna do a Will Ferrell comedy; some days I feel like I wanna do more like a Set It Off-type of movie with some other young black actresses and like creating a movement with that. And sometimes I think, maybe I could do X-Men or something.” NMW - MAY 9, 2014

Jenna Rose Music Career In Up-Swing Young recording artist Jenna Rose has been making quite a name for herself in the music industry.

Ozzy: Where are the rock stars?

Ozzy Osbourne is clueless as to who will ‘carry the flag’ for rock stars from now on. The 65-year-old musician was the frontman of legendary band Black Sabbath and has also had a successful solo career. Having now left his wild days behind, Ozzy admits he’s concerned about who can take over his reputation. ‘That might be a very true statement,’ he commented to Kerrang! magazine when asked if he thinks music is suffering from a lack of rock stars. ‘I honestly don’t know who’s going to carry the flag in the future, but I wish someone would hurry up. None of us are getting any younger, you know.’ Ozzy also named one of his idols in the music industry. Insisting someone must be an ‘extrovert’ to be considered a rock star, he explained why he looks up to one particular musician. ‘David Bowie comes to mind. He’s always original with his image and music. Nowadays, I have a problem telling who’s in the band and who’s in the crew ‘ no one looks like a rock star!’ Ozzy mused. The raven-haired singer landed the 23rd spot in Kerrang!’s 50 Greatest Rockstars In The World Today. Asked why he thinks he made the list this year, Ozzy believes his band helped him gain the title. ‘[Why?] Probably because I’m Ozzy Osbourne!’ he quipped. ‘But the past year, with the success of Sabbath’s 13 album and the world tour, probably didn’t hurt.’ Lastly, Ozzy revealed he never dreamed of becoming such a big name in music, revealing he thought he’d end up a plumber.

John Lennon coat at auction

John Lennon’s Coat to be Auctioned by Nate D. Sanders Auctions A personallyowned coat by Beatle John Lennon will be auctioned by Nate D. Sanders on April 29. Interested bidders may participate in the auction online. Lennon’s size 3, blue, cropped coat, designed by Great Coat

Fireman, features an asymmetrical design, epaulettes and silver tone metal buttons. Andrew B. Harvey was given the coat in 1978. Harvey’s certificate of authenticity states, ‘’This British fireman’s coat once belonged to John Lennon. It was given to me in 1978 by Jon Hendricks, my (then) common-law wife’s uncle. Brothers Jon and Jeff Hendricks own adjoining houses on Greenwich St. in the West Village. They jointly run (or ran) a mail-order art gallery called Backworks. Both Jeff and Jon were involved in the art movement know as ‘fluxism’ as was Yoko Ono. Through this they got to know the Lennons in the early seventies. Jon got the job of minding Julian Lennon on a trip (or trips) across the Atlantic. In 1978 we went to stay with Jon for a few weeks. He told me the fireman’s coat hanging in the hall had been left there by John Lennon when he’d called in a few months earlier. I think that was the last time he saw John Lennon, (but his brother must still have been on good terms with Yoko because later, in 1982, he invited us on a New Year’s eve jaunt in a Rolls that she had lent him and some friends for the evening). Jon asked me if I wanted the coat, as I was off on a cross-country hitch-hiking trip and I didn’t have one. I wore it through a couple of hard years. It may well be the coat that John Lennon is wearing on the back of the British album release (I think) as ‘Life With The Lions’, - unless he had several of them. The picture shows John and Yoko surrounded by British policemen, after John’s drug bust.’’ In 1996, Connecticut Beatles collector Keith Marron obtained the coat, which he owned until he put it up for auction through Nate D. Sanders. Mark David Chapman assassinated Lennon in 1980 at the entrance to his apartment building, the Dakota, on the west side of Manhattan. A Strawberry Fields Forever memorial was created in Central Park ‘ not far from Lennon’s Dakota residence ‘ in memory of the revered musician and former Beatle.

Duran Duran in studio w/ Ronson and Frusciante

Duran Duran are back in the studio working on an album with John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Mark Ronson. Duran Duran proved in 2010 that they are still a force with the album All You Need is Now and it appears they are looking to make that force even stronger with the addition of the two major collaborators. The band is in the studio working on their 14th studio album with producer Mark Ronson who produced Now and has been behind tracks on such albums as Back to Black by Amy Winehouse, Alright, Still by Lily Allen, 19 by Adele, Off With Their Heads by the Kaiser Chiefs and New by Paul McCartney. On Wednesday, they confirmed a rumored second collaboration for the set with former Red Hot Chili

Pepper’s guitarist John Frusciante. The band had wanted to keep his work a surprise but the constant talk finally forced them to issue the statement: We were holding this exciting news because we were hoping to give you full details when we announced, but as word has leaked out, catching us rather off guard, we wanted to confirm. yes it’s true, the extraordinarily talented John Frusciante has indeed been doing some work from his home base in California on our new album. The tracks have been going back and forth via the internet, and we are thrilled with the results. We are all such big fans of John’s work and are honoured to have him adding his magic to the record! There are no current plans for John to tour with us, but his guitars sound incredible on the tracks.

Smokey Robinson’s ex-wife suing over royalties

Smokey Robinson could soon see a windfall of money from some of his earliest compositions and his ex-wife, Claudette Robinson, wants a piece of the action. The Copyright Act of 1976 included a clause that is currently coming due allowing artists to regain the rights to their older songs that they may have given up early in their career when they were hungry or not knowledgeable in the ways of the business. A number of artists have already filed claims for their music as has Robinson. The songs that he is seeking are some of the biggest hits from the early days of Motown, ones that are still played regularly on the radio and are generating sizeable royalty incomes. Claudette was obviously aware of the money that potentially could be coming to her ex-husband and contacted him about the royalties; however, Smokey filed a lawsuit in March to try and negate any claims she might have. Last Friday, Claudette took her own action, filing a countersuit claiming that 50% of the royalties from songs Smokey wrote while their married should belong to her, but she didn’t stop there. She has also claimed that Smokey had breached his fiduciary duty and committed constructive fraud by not declaring the possible windfall, scheduled far into the future, during 1989 proceedings after their divorce. According to Smokey’s lawyers, the provisions of the 1976 Copyright Act only apply to the actual songwriter; however, Claudette’s lawyers have countered saying that Congress never intended to preclude the rights of those who would normally have shared in the royalties. The Robinson’s met while performing as the Miracles and were married for 27 years.

Michael Jackson. The 33-year-old singer was part of boy band ‘N Sync for seven years before releasing his first independent album Justified in 2002. Justin wrote a song for Michael years ago, but ‘N Sync used the track instead, which led to an interesting conversation with the King of Pop that changed the musician’s career forever. “It was one of those songs where, it felt a little more personal to me, because I had written it for the biggest artist of all time,” Justin recalled in a forthcoming episode of Oprah’s Master Class. “I guess Michael did hear it, and called me on the phone and said that he wanted to cut the record, but he wanted it to be a duet between himself and I. And I said, ‘Well, it’s already out, we’ve already cut the song as an ‘N Sync record ... could we do, like, an ‘N Sync featuring Michael Jackson, or Michael Jackson featuring ‘N Sync?’ And he was very absolute about the fact that he wanted it to be a duet between himself and I.’ The star claims he never really entertained thoughts of becoming a solo artist before speaking with Michael. “I think it’s the first idea that I ever got about doing something on my own because it was the first time I ever really felt the confidence to do it,” Justin explained. The 20/20 Experience singer went on to sell millions of records worldwide as a solo artist. Justin’s full Oprah’s Master Class interview will air on OWN network May 11.

Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom have reportedly been getting “cosy”. The 21-year-old singer started dating pop bad boy Justin Bieber in 2010 and it’’s thought their on/off relationship is currently on pause. Now it’’s being speculated that she’’s finding comfort in the 37-year-old actor, who announced his split from wife Miranda Kerr last year. According to New York Post’’s Page Six, the pair looked “cosy” as they attended the Chelsea Handler show on Saturday night. The publication claims that Selena and Orlando arrived in the same car and then left together afterwards. The Pirates of the Caribbean star is keeping things friendly with model Miranda for the sake of their three-year-old son Flynn. Meanwhile, Selena’’s split from 20-year-old Justin has been acrimonious. Over the weekend, Justin posted a picture on Instagram, showing him gesturing at the camera in Central Park. The star hinted that he was feeling bitter about his turbulent love life in the caption that accompanied the snap. “Was gonna wait to go to Central Park for when I proposed to my future wife but sh*t sometimes things change. I’’ll think of something more romantic. (sic),” he wrote. Selena’’s friendship

with Orlando could be part of the steps she’’s reportedly taking to keep her life on track. TMZ recently claimed the brunette had cut certain people out of her life, including Kylie and Kendall Jenner, so she could focus on her music. Part of the reason for allegedly culling the famous sisters could be that she fears 16-year-old Kylie was getting close to Justin. ‘Selena is convinced something has gone on between Justin and Kylie,’ an insider told British newspaper The Sun. ‘At Coachella they looked to be back on track. Selena was hanging out with Kylie too and they were behaving like best friends. ‘Then she heard stuff about Justin and Kylie and felt totally betrayed. She went berserk and called it all off again.’

Rihanna ‘leaves Def Jam’

Rihanna has reportedly signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. The Pour It Up hitmaker recently fulfilled her deal with Def Jam and decided to make a switch to the rapper’s label, which has managed her career since 2010, MTV News reports. A source at Def Jam apparently told the outlet Rihanna made her move in April 2013, when Jay made a deal to partner Roc Nation with Universal Music Group. Def Jam will reportedly continue to market Rihanna’s music, however. Rumours of the label change were sparked early on Monday, after Complex magazine noted Rihanna was being branded as a ‘Legacy’ artist on the Def Jam site. Spokespersons for the parties involved had not commented on the claims at press time. Jay famously launched Rihanna’s career after bringing her to Def Jam during his tenure as president of the label back in 2005. He left the company in 2008 and months later partnered with Live Nation on the new venture, signing acts including Rita Ora, Jay Electronica and J. Cole. Rihanna’s seventh album, Unapologetic, debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s 200 US music chart and scored the singer a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album. The 26-year-old took home Artist of the Year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles just last week. The singer recognised her fans and the people she works with in a speech at the ceremony. ‘I know I’m a pain in the a**, but it’s worth it because we got the biggest award of the night!’ she told her team as she took the stage. The pop star also won Best Fan Army, Hip Hop/R&B Song of the Year (Pour It Up) and Song of the Year (Stay).

aren’t going well in their relationship at this time. It is claimed Mariah, 44, is seriously considering divorcing from Nick, 33. ‘Mariah’d cut him loose right now. But she’s worried about him making a grab for a huge chunk of her $515 million fortune,’ one source told America’s OK! magazine, with another insider noting her other half is also in misery. ‘Nick feels burned that Mariah is ready to pull the plug. They have a pre-nup, but after Nick tells his side of the story Mariah will most likely settle with him financially and realise her once beautiful marriage has evaporated.’ Things purportedly went downhill after Nick released his controversial new album White People Party Music on April 1. While promoting the LP in an interview with Power 106’s Big Boy last month, he claimed he had sex with Kim Kardashian and he also revealed graphic details about his intimate life with Mariah. And apparently the Grammy-winning songstress was disgusted by his statements. ‘Nick loves to goof on Mariah, but she hates it,’ a source revealed. ‘She has spent decades cultivating an image of an iconic glamour-puss.’ It is claimed Mariah and Nick, who are parents to three-year-old fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe, are so upset with each other, they didn’t even celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary last week. ‘Mariah threw a diva ft and started browbeating Nick about being an absentee, no-good husband. She gave him hell for being immature and accused him of fooling around with other chicks,’ an insider said. ‘She told him to cancel whatever anniversary plans he’d made.’’

Miley Cyrus was ‘poisoning’ herself without realising, she has revealed. The Wrecking Ball singer spent more than a week in hospital earlier this month after having a bad reaction to medication she had been prescribed for a sinus infection. Earlier today on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, the 21-year-old spoke for the first time about her ordeal since being released from hospital last Thursday. ‘I’m doing good, much better,’ she said. ‘It was so scary. I had basically been poisoning myself with something I didn’t know I was really scary allergic to. It was insane.’ Miley had to cancel numerous dates of the American leg of her Bangerz tour while she was receiving treatment in Kansas. But for someone renowned for being full of energy, Miley soon grew restless while trapped in her hospital bed. ‘I was crying because I was so bored. I’m laying here hooked to all these machines. Every two hours, some woman comes in and pokes me with

a needle, just miserable,’ she recalled. ‘I’m just laying here with nothing to do. I was begging the doctors, ‘Let me out to go do the show!’ It was basically no way.’ The medication she was receiving during her stay made her lose her appetite. But she did manage to find one surprising exception which helped her get through the week. ‘I wouldn’t eat anything cause the medicine made me sick except [Southern country themed chain restaurant] Cracker Barrel. So all I did for five days was be on steroids, get myself better, and eat Cracker Barrel,’ she laughed. Now Miley has recovered from her allergic reaction, she will resume her tour in Europe on Friday.

DJ E-Z Rock dies of stroke

DJ E-Z Rock, who hit the Dance top ten in 1988 with partner Rob Base on It Takes Two, has died at the age of 46. No details have been announced on how the hip-hip artist, born Rodney Bryce, died, although the site AllHipHop News has stated that he had been ill and died of a “massive stroke”. The news was announced on Twitter by Biz Markie (“R.I.P. TO EZ ROCK FROM ROB BASE AND EZ ROCK YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED..” and confirmed to Rolling Stone by Base. Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock, friends in Harlem since fourth grade, released their first single, DJ Interview, in 1987 on the Mike and Dave label and followed with Make It Hot on Worldto-World. Word of mouth brought them to Profile Records in 1988 where they released their first major, It Takes Two. The song went big, especially on the streets and in the clubs, going to number 3 on the Dance chart, 17 on R&B and 36 on the Hot 100. The single, plus the album of the same name went Platinum. They followed up with Get On the Dance Floor (1988 / #1 Dance / #6 Rap) and Joy and Pain (1988 / #58 Pop / #11 R&B / #9 Dance / #5 Rap), cementing them as one of the most innovative stars on the rap circuit. Their sound was a mix of multiple genres and stayed away from rap-only lyrics, using samples from artists like James Brown and Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly, bringing the hip-hop sound more to the mainstream. It was that use of sampling that got the duo into trouble with Frankie Maze taking them to court. Base ended up dropping DJ E-Z Rock in late 1989 and going it alone, saying that Bryce had “personal problems”. They reunited in 1994 for the album Break of Dawn.

The 61-year-old musician even referenced one of his songs in the note, asking that the spirit of his 1968 release Back in the U.S.S.R. be acknowledged. ‘Forty-five years ago I wrote a song about Russia for the White Album, back when it wasn’t fashionable for English people to say nice things about your country,’ Paul wrote. ‘That song NMW - MAY 9, 2014

Tim McGraw made a smart move taking his wife Faith Hill out for dinner and a duet. Together they make beautiful music as “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s” (Big Machine/Universal) pulls in stellar numbers. Watch this gem move the #1 in record time. Brad Paisley has another gem on his hands. The master guitar player/vocalist is taking his new “River Bank” (Arista Nashville) out for a spin and the results are amazing. Blake Shelton could take a lesson from Tim McGraw about taking your wife in for a duet. Instead Blake teams up with Gwen Sebastian for “My Eyes” (Warner Music Nashville). She does a decent job when you can actually hear her in the mix. This single should also find a place at #1 any time now. Josh Thompson is off and running and radio is loving his action big time. “Wanted Me Gone” (Show Dog/Universal) is the tale that many of our music and program directors just can’t seem to get enough of. Dustin Lynch is fast becoming a real favorite here at NMW. The single “Where It’s At” (Ind) is all that good and more. Those Brothers Osborne are at it again and the results are magical. “Rum” (EMI) is the tasty cocktail they are out and about with and it’s getting some great reaction from our panel. Chase Rice is also getting raves for his latest release. “Ready Set Roll” (Columbia Nashville) is being added to Country playlists from coast to coast and we are tracking his action which at this point is extremely impressive. Kacey Musgraves is becoming one of our favorite Country gals. Not only has she penned hits for others, she keeps one for herself in “Keep It To Yourself” (Mercury Nashville) and that suits us all just fine. Easton Corbin keep pulling in the votes and calls for his latest and greatest. “Clockwork” (Mercury Nashville) is the one that’s keeping him at the top of the pack. Clinton Gregory has teamed up with Collin Raye to make some music history. “Some Real Good People” (Melody Roundup) is so good that you’ll have to throw some extra spins in for this hot track just because we said so. Cole Swindell is also making some of the bet music out there these days. His new “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” (Warner Music Nashville) is pulling past many others and watch it blast to the top very soon. Chris Young has got it all going and he keeps building his castle. “Who I Am With You” (RCA Nashville) is another one to add to his already strong list of hits. Our good pal Lee Brice seems to be on a good patch that keeps getting stronger. “I Don’t Dance” (Curb) is his latest and greatest and many of you out there in Country music land know just what I’m talking about. The Band Perry keep the heat on just about everybody as their brilliant and strong “Chainsaw” (Republic Nashville) takes bigger and bolder moves. This is our special Independent Music Issue so let the spotlight shine on some of those artists. Natalie Stovall is getting a strong buzz at Country radio. It’s all thanks to her “Baby Come On With It” single that is pretty strong. Michelle Cupit is basking in the spotlight. She can credit her “She’s A Trainwreck” (Cupit) for all of the recent activity. There should be smooth sailing ahead for this strong recording artist. Marianne Allison is rocking strong with a new track. “Til It Breaks My Heart” lets us know that the indie movement is alive and well. Juanita Rose is also getting a strong buzz with a masterful little song called “The King Of Country Music” (Sims). Ocala and Big Round Music bring us Ariana Hodes and radio is set for a thrill. “Brand New Key” is her release and with the brilliant Mike Borchetta running the program you know that big things are set to happen. I’ll have more on the best of Country music next time right here.

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

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

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - MAY 9, 2014

Billy Ray Cyrus ‘Hopefully, People Learn From My Mistakes’ Since 1992 and the success of a song called “Achy Breaky Heart,” Billy Ray Cyrus has learned all about busy schedules. Over two decades later, there is no sign the Kentuckian is slowing down. The singer is promoting his latest album “Change My Mind,” and has also just released his autobiography “Hillbilly Heart.” “It’s a very busy time,” he told Billboard over the weekend at Nashville’s Parnassus Books. “There was a song that I had a record on a few years ago called ‘Busy Man.’ I have found myself living those words in keeping up with all of this,” he said, referring to his top five smash from 1999. Cyrus goes into great detail about his youth in the book, with one memory concerning his father being a recurring theme of Hillbilly Heart. “Well, he gave me a lot of advice, but chapter one is called ‘Life Ain’t Fair.’ It’s the story about when my mom and dad were getting a divorce. I knew everything was messed up and different in my family as opposed to other families in Flatwoods, KY. One day, I asked him why things were like they were, and he pulled over, looked me in the eye, and said ‘Son, life ain’t fair. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you can move on.” Cyrus said he has replayed that conversation several times since whenever life’s highway has gotten rough. “Sometimes, you’ve just got to call it like it is, and do the best you can do with what you’ve been given. You work hard at your goals and your dreams. The book is dedicated to the dreamers. That’s another thing I learned from my dad -- no dream is too big to achieve. You’ve just got to chart a course, set a plan, and vow to pursue it.” When asked what he would like readers to take from the book, he says “There were a couple of times in my life where the rocket ride got a little fast, and you pray for purpose. I think it was a bit of my purpose to write this book. Hopefully, people might learn from my mistakes. I’m very honest about some of the ones I’ve made. If I can save someone from making some of the same ones, I think that’s the rhyme and the reason of the story. There’s also a few things I did right, and I think that’s something that some folks can borrow from and maybe help them to reach their goals and dreams.” He also talks about the stories of many of his biggest hits, including “Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” a 2007 duet with daughter Miley. “It was about those moments that you have in life as a daddy, where you see your little girl grow up. You think you’re ready to let go, and you prepare yourself for that moment, and you’re set. Then, as she’s saying goodbye, you want to reach out, hold her a bit longer and say ‘Don’t go.’ I still live it every day. I’ve got another little girl who just turned thirteen, Noah, so I’m living it through her. A lot of daddies and daughters have written me stories about that song, and how the song was played at weddings or graduations. One dad wrote me about taking his daughter to join the Army, and they listened to the song before they got out of the car. Things like that are the reason why I bought a guitar and started a band. The music touched somebody’s life, and it tends to make sense.” Having went through the whirlwind of “Achy Breaky” and “Hannah Montana,” the singer says “I’m at a pretty good spot in my life. I’ve written a bunch of new songs for an album I’m going to record this summer. I start a new movie the first week of May called ‘Like A Country Song’ that is filmed here in Nashville. I filmed a pilot with Randy Travis called ‘Still The King’ -- I play a dysfunctional Elvis impersonator who becomes a preacher. Randy’s the sheriff. It’s a great story, and I think it will find a home pretty soon. I love acting, being a singer / songwriter, and being here in Music City at this time in my life -- coming full circle with the book is quite unique.”

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.

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).
