ploggins@newmusicweekly.com

We’re always trilled when we get to this issue each year. After-all New Music Weekly was founded to help the independent artist and their labels so this subject is one that we know quite well. Each week we monitor a good many of the artists that are not on major labels as we continue to help level the playing field for artists in direct competition from the majors.

Larry Weir

A good many of our reporting stations actually cheer these underdogs on and as long as the indie artists and bands provide radio friendly songs, our music and program directors will continue to support them in every way.

Over the past few years the deals that the majors have been offering to start up artists has been at a very low level. In fact many of the major labels take quite a bit from artists that go far beyond just their record royalties. Many want to be the artists management, booking agent, publisher as they try to grab every portion of the already small pie in hopes of getting their fair share. A good many newcomers and even the established artists are saying no to such nonsense and realize that they would be better off going the independent route. There continues to be a cut throat policy in play with the majors with respect to artists on their own rosters. Due to the fact that there are only so many slots to fill at radio, many labels have their secret list of propriety artists. During their weekly conference calls to the promotion staff the true plans are given as to which artists on their label get the real push. If you are not at the top of that propriety list you are in big trouble and many realize that at times their own record label may by actually be fighting against them. For those in that situation it would be best to become independent and not have to compete with your fellow label mates. A good many are finding this to be true and are choosing to opt out. There have been so many changes over the past decade that have actually favored the independent artist and label. The move into the digital age meant that artists and labels no longer had to spend endless funds for marketing with respect to record and chain stores alike. This funding was initially used to take your product from the back room to be placed in positions that the consumer could easily purchase but that all got out of hand and at times those moves were actually never made. The majors always found this a simple way to get out of paying record royalties by simply charting the artist for marketing and promotion. The new age of video has also helped the indie artist. There was a time when you needed to spend ridiculous amounts of money to make a video and then to market it. Now you can make your own video with your cell phone, get it on YouTube and get a million plus followers. This type of activity has gone wild and there are new artists emerging by leaps and bounds just via their video alone. The major labels would always love to charge the artist back for those expensive video productions but in the new age it’s hard for them to get away with that. In many cases bands have been able to come up with cleaver, inexpensive videos. New Music Weekly continues to offer the best “tools of the trade” for the independent artist, band and label. Through our own tracking system, charts, digital delivery systems and a magazine, you can reach the masses each week and keep track of what your record is actually doing. NMW offers special display rates for ads both small and large to help get the message out to the industry. Our new magazine digital distribution system helps us reach a much larger range and now gets out to the entire music industry. As the years progress we will continue to work hard and fight for the independent artist. We ask for your continued support in the venture as we move towards new and exciting musical times. You can and will always be able to count on New Music Weekly for your support system.

Mila Mason is currently rocking the Country and mainstream charts with her single “Run Like a Girl”. In 1996, Mason was signed to Atlantic Records, with her debut single “That’s Enough of That” reaching Top 20 on the Billboard Hot Country charts. An album of the same name followed soon afterward, producing two more singles: a No. 21-peaking cover of Canadian singer Amanda Marshall’s “Dark Horse”, followed by “That’s the Kinda Love (That I’m Talking About)” at No. 59. Mason released her second album, The Strong One, in 1998. This album produced a top lead-off single in “Closer to Heaven”, followed by the title track and then “This Heart” which failed to chart. Dissatisfied by the direction that her career had taken, Mila exited Atlantic’s roster in 1998, taking time off to work on her songwriting. She also married Jason Grainger in the early 2000, and co-wrote Mindy McCready’s 2002 single “Maybe, Maybe Not”. By 2003, she signed to the independent Twin Beat Records label, recording the album Stained Glass Window. Grainger contributed to several of the songs on this album. This album also included her own version of “Maybe, Maybe Not.” She also became one of the first songwriters signed to the Nashville division of the Brumley Music Group, an independent country music and gospel music publishing company. In late 2010, Mila took a break from recording music and touring to head up Faverett Music Group on Music Row, Nashville. Faverett is home to writer/artists Shane Piaseki, Adam Fears, & Dan Schafer. The Faverett catalog also contains songs written by Chris Gantry, Dennis Matkowsky, Josh Osborne, Sheree Spann/Spoltore, Greg Barnhill, Jimmy Olander(Diamond Rio), Jim Collins, Randy Thomas and many others. In 2014, Mila returned to the studio to work on a new record and released the current hit single, “Run Like a Girl,” produced by Tony Mantor. A new album is to be released in June. Look to New Music Weekly as we continue to track and report the success of rising star Mila Mason. 3

Adam Lambert is back with a gem for the format and there are big hopes that this will bring him back as a relevant recording artist. “Ghost Town” (WB/WEA) is the new release and it’s an excellent showcase with respect to what he’s all about. You can be assured that the American Idol team will be pulling for this one to fly big time. Lunchmoney Lewis is making the most of his new found fame. “Bills” (Kemosabe/Columbia) has been a bit of a sleeper but it’s finally getting the attention it so deserves. This guy is a real riot and the song along with the super cleaver video should be doing much better that it has been. We’ll see how it all plays out for him in the weeks to come. Fetty Wap is rocking the music world be leaps and bounds. “Trap Queen” (RGF Productions/300 Entertainment) is the jam that many of our music and program directors just can’t get enough of. It might be time to pay some extra special attention to this if you haven’t done so already. The pairing of Shaggy with Mohombi, Faydee & Costi is starting to finally pay off. The single is pretty much an independent venture in “I Need Your Love” (RAL/Sony) so they are doing a lot of the work on their own. We think that it has a lot of merit and make sure you give this one some extra spins this week if you can. Meghan Trainor is back with yet another gem. “Dear Future Husband” (Epic) keeps her hot as a pistol and you know you have something good going on when Dancing With the Stars keeps using the track for their current line-up of stars. It’s so fifties yet it has that now sound which makes this single a real winner. Dillon Francis has teamed up with DJ Snake for the smash hit “Get Low” (Columbia). Watch for some blockbuster weeks ahead for this masterpiece. Andy Grammer is another artist that deserves more good things. His latest in “Honey, I’m Good” (S Curve/ EMI) is such a great track that you have to wonder why he seems to always have to fight for every break. That’s what makes him a great artist. Sia has another great track on her hands. “Elastic Heart” (RCA/RLG) is the latest from this super talented song writer and recording artist. Carly Rae Jepsen has a new single that is fast becoming a real favorite. “I Really Like You” (School Boy/Interscope) is such a catchy track and many of our music and program directors are raving about it big time. Rihanna is getting some spin action for “Bitch Better Have My Money” (Roc Nation) but it appears that another single has also been dropped so we’ll see that this is all about. Jason Derulo delivers another amazing single to Top40 and Hot AC. “Want To Want Me” (Beluga Heights/WB) has to be him at his very best. Watch for some huge moves all the way to #1 for this monster record. Pitbull has joined forces with Chris Brown (why not – it seems everybody does) for the track entitled “Fun” (Mr 305/Polo Grounds Music/RCA). Omi has a great new single out and about called “Cheerleader” (Ultra). Make sure you give this one some attention in the coming weeks as it could fly. Kelly Clarkson’s new “Heartbeat Song” (RCA/RLG) is such a great track and should be doing so much better on the charts. Not sure if it’s getting the real push from the label that it deserves. Newcomer Jillian Kohr is “on fire” with her new - The Way That I Love You (Black Cherry) single and make no mistake about that. Bernie Townsend has a good thing going with “Just Won’t Touch Me Now” (Gravel Road). The Weekend has the best song at Top40 in “Earned It” (Universal Republic). Who Is Fancy is on the move with “Goodbye” (Silent/Republic). Mirage Box is moving fast again with “Juarez” (Growlyman Endeavors) & “Bye Bye Baby” from Brandy Moss Scott (Heavenly Tunes) is closing in fast. Bill Curreri is also raging with “Fade Away” (Ind). I’ll have more for you next time and let’s support these amazing indie artists.

Rachel Platten has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. Her “Fight Song” (Columbia) is helping to launch her career in a very big way and many of our music and program directors are raving about her. Watch for some big moves ahead for this super talented recording artist. Jason Derulo has one of the best songs of his amazing career and it could not come at a better time for him. “Want To Want Me” (Beluga Heights/WB) shines as a super melodic throw back to years past and this one my friends is headed to the very top of the charts. The song will no doubt keep Jason ahead of the pack in so many ways and it’s just the break he needed at this point in time. The Sam Smith pairing with John Legend for a brand new take on his hit single “Lay Me Down” (Capitol) is actually bringing the song back to radio. Already a smash hit, the song now gets an early facelift and the results may provide a hit all over again. Alabama Shakes are getting a strong buzz at the format. “Don’t Wanna Fight” (Ind) is the cut that many of you are loving and for good reason. OAR is back and that’s always a good thing for radio. “Two Hands Up” (Vanguard) is another brilliant offering for this super talented outfit. We just hope that it gets the shot it so deserves and you can help make all the difference. Kerris & Justine Dorsey keep building their good fortunes at radio and although it’s been taking some time it seems to be paying off. “Best Worst Day Ever” (Walt Disney) is the gem that we are talking about and please give this a shot if you haven’t already. The pairing of Pitbull & NeYo has brought great rewards to the both of them. “Time Of Our Lives” (Mr 305/Polo Grounds Music/RCA) is fast becoming a music pop anthem and the spins continues across formats. Another stellar pairing in Wiz Khalifah with Charlie Ruth is also setting the music world on fire. “See You Again” (Atlantic) is the gem we are talking about and this one is “on fire” and make no mistake about it. Newcomer Jillian Kohr has got a good thing going. Her debut single “The Way That I Love You” (Black Cherry) is killing it at radio and what an amazing vocalist this young lady is. Chakra Bleu is back with a gem that deserves your immediate attention. “All Of Me” (1746) is a really winner and it’s already a “most added” from coast to coast. Many of you are also loving the new Bernie Townsend who brings us “Just Won’t Touch Me Now” (Gravel Road). You may want to throw a few extra spins in for this gem. Recording artist Chris Cox is crossing over his debut single from Country to AC. “Sunday Morning Guitar” (CMM) is the perfect crossover and our programmers all agree on this gem. Carl Wockner is winning raves and proise for “Crayon Days” (Possum/Universal) and it’s all quite well deserved. Parker Harrison has a good thing going with “ Love Changes Everything”. Brandy Moss Scott continues her winning ways with her brilliant “Bye Bye Baby” (Heavenly Tunes) that is destined for #1 soon. Mirage Box also continues ever so strong with their brilliant “Juarez” (Growlyman Endeavors). Tony Clarke is winning friend with his powerful “Raise The Track Up” (Coast). Our new favorite solo artist Nate Ruess continues ever so strong with his “Nothing Without Love” (Fueled By Ramen) single. Walk The Moon has one of the best songs out there and are building their new fortune as “Shut Up And Dance” (RCA/RLG) is fast becoming a solid music anthem in record time. The pairing of Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding is paying off as their single “Outside” (Columbia) keeps building strong. Indie artist Bill Curreri reached #1 on our AC40 chart with “Fade Away” so a big congrats to him. This is our annual Indie Artists issue so check out the rest of the winners in this issue. I’ll have more for you next time right here.

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.

Bieber: I was disappointed with myself Justin Bieber believes you have to ‘own up to the mistakes’. The 21-year-old developed a reputation for being a bit of a bad boy in recent years, having had a number of run ins with the law for issues including egg throwing and DUI. But in the last few months, the Baby singer has realised the error of his ways, and is now mortified by his former behaviour. ‘I was rebelling a little bit. I was getting cockier and cockier. I didn’t have people to check me,” he told Seventeen magazine. “I looked back and I was disappointed in myself. You have to own up to the mistakes. You have to say, ‘I’m sorry if I’ve let you down,’ “. Justin has publicly apologised on a number of occasions in recent months. It has given him time to realise that honesty really is the best policy in life. ‘I always want to be honest and let people know that those mistakes aren’t who I am. Who I am is someone who really cares about people,’ he said. ‘I need healthy relationships with people I can feel safe with. People I can say whatever to, and I’m not going to be judged.” As well as strong professional relationships, Justin also wants to build a solid foundation with the right girl. The star has had an on-off relationship with fellow singer Selena Gomez in recent years as well as being linked to model Kendall Jenner. But it seems Justin has it clear in his mind exactly what he is looking for in a partner. ‘In a girl, I want someone whos confident in herself and honest,” he added. “I have to find her very attractive and as someone I can see myself with for the rest of my life.”

Billy Corgan: Music industry run idiots

Smashing Pumpkins frontman, now wrestling executive, Billy Corgan says the music business is run by ‘feckless idiots’. A clean shaven, suit wearing Corgan is now the Senior Producer of Creative and Talent Development for TNA Wrestling. This week he appeared on CNBC as part of his new role. Corgan articulated the current state of the music industry saying, ‘The music business is mostly run by feckless idiots who do not subscribe to the normal attendance to capitalism which when they do the business tends to work out well, stars tend to rise to the top. Everybody benefits. But it is still a peroquial business. It is run by thiefdoms way behind the times technologically’. Corgan says the real rock stars are in the tech world. ‘The tech world is just blowing music out of the water,’ he said. ‘Music and artists remain incredibly valuable to launching things. Hence tech companies keep cycling back to

music artists. Music artists tend to work out their true value in a free market which they have been slow to do because you have that old model of telling artists they are not worth anything, that they are disposable. What you have seen happen in sports leagues you are going to see that evolution happen in the music business’. One of those new tech / music giants is Jay-Z who recently launched the new streaming service Tidal. Corgan says it isn’t as honourable as the initial hype would have you believe. ‘Although I celebrate the idea of him creating his own model it leaves a lot of people out. At some point you have to have winners and losers because that’s the way it works. To try and sell it as an altruistic thing is disingenuous because its not. He is taking his slice of the pie as he has a right to do. He is a powerful man and he works with powerful people. But I’m an artist and I don’t recall getting a phone-call from him. To sell it as altruistic I don’t but it’. As for the future of the music business, ‘You are going to see a complete disintegration of the model and a reforming,’ Corgan said.

Kinney dishes on his wedding with Lady Gaga

Taylor Kinney has shared details about his forthcoming wedding to Lady Gaga. The 29-year-old Applause singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, became engaged to the 33-year-old Chicago Fire actor in February. Taylor has revealed he and Gaga are doing ‘great’ at the moment, but the details surrounding their forthcoming nuptials are still not locked down. ‘I’m kind of laying low right now, we don’t have a date yet, but soon,’ he told Extra. ‘We’ll probably keep it to ourselves.’ Taylor popped the question over a romantic Valentine’s Day meal, presenting his girlfriend of almost four years with a stunning heart-shaped Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring. The couple met in 2011 on the set of Gaga’s You and I music video and have been going strong ever since. Gaga, a New York City native, is apparently searching for a nice place in Manhattan to buy so she and Taylor can establish their family home near her mother Cynthia and father Joseph. ‘Gaga is looking for a penthouse on the Upper West Side near her childhood home, where her parents still live,’ a source told Page Six previously. ‘She is looking at apartments at around 4,000 square feet, with high ceilings and outdoor space.’ The pop star already owns a mansion in Malibu, California, with rumours circulating she paid $24 million for the property. This estate is said to be spread over six acres of land and is decked out with an eight-horse stable along with riding trails. It’s

believed she and Taylor will be tying the knot at her Malibu compound and her music partner Tony Bennett recently confirmed he’ll be singing at their wedding.

Kanye West receives honorary doctorate

Kanye West has accepted an honorary doctorate degree. The 37-year-old musician rose to fame after releasing his The College Dropout album in 2004. And on Monday he was presented with an honorary doctoral degree from School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), a higher learning institution located in his hometown. “I am a pop artist, so my medium is public opinion, and the world is my canvas,’ he noted in his speech while accepting the award. The star donned a graduation robe to his acceptance ceremony. And in typical Kanye fashion his speech was infused with a bevy of interesting observations. “I’m sorry is something that you can use a lot,” he noted. “It gives you the opportunity to give your opinion, apologise for it, and give your opinion again.” Kanye infamously criticised former American president George W. Bush during a Hurricane Katrina charity telethon in 2005. But the star joked he’s now come to appreciate the politician“[Bush] has some very cool self-portraits,’ he smiled, evoking laughter in the audience. ‘I didn’t know he was an artist.” Kanye informed other graduates of SAIC during his address at the podium that receiving a diploma from the institution will enrich their lives. He also claimed becoming ‘Dr. West’ will benefit his own life greatly. “This honour is gonna make your lives easier,” the star noted. “Two reasons: You don’t have to defend me as much and I’m going to make all of our lives easier. And it’s these Floyd Mayweather belts that are needed to prove what I’ve been saying my entire life. Whether it’s the cosign of Paul McCartney grabbing me and saying, ‘It’s okay he doesn’t bite white people.’ Or The New York Times cover. Or the Time ‘Most Influential’ cover. And now, a doctorate at the Art Institute of Chicago.” SAIC decided to award Kanye with an honorary doctorate for the star’s ‘transformative, genre-defying work’.

American Idol axed

American Idol has been cancelled. The TV talent show has been hugely popular since it first hit screens in 2002, launching the careers of stars including Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks and Carrie Underwood. Fox has now confirmed that the upcoming 15th season of the programme - which will air in January - will be the last. The current crop of judges, Jennifer Lopez, Keith

New Music Weekly co-editor Larry Weir spent some good quality time with the red hot duo Maddie & Tae. They performed a special up-plugged session for NMW and media and then a full concert later during the evening at the House Of Blues in Los Angeles. Weir reports a great night for all.

Urban and Harry Connick Jr., will remain in place for the final showing, with host Ryan Seacrest also staying on. There have also been hints that something fresh could be in store for the season, which will apparently honour its previous years. At the moment there is no word on exactly what that means. At one point American Idol was the most popular show on TV, winning 41 million viewers during the last half hour of the premiere in 2006. 36 million viewers tuned in to see Jordan win that series’ final. Simon Cowell was one of the judges when American Idol launched, but he left in 2010 to bring The X Factor Stateside. After his departure there was a revolving door of judges, with the likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Steven Tyler, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj all doing the honours at one point. This year the run saw a low point of 11.6 million people switching on. Although it sounds like a lot, the programme is expensive as there are judges’ salaries to consider, as well as booking big name talent to perform at the live shows. On top of that there are now many similar programmes being broadcast, such as Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine’s The Voice. American Idol isn’t the only casualty of the new season’s TV schedules. Last week it was confirmed that The Mindy Project had been culled, and it’s also curtains for Kevin Bacon’s programme The Following.

The Monkees return to the UK

Charles Kelley of the country band Lady Antebellum opened up his home to Southern Living for the June issue. Charles and his wife Cassie hosted an outdoor dinner party at their home in Nashville and Southern Living was lucky enough to score an invite – and entertaining tips – from the couple.

The Monkees featuring Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork, will perform their first concert in the UK since their sold-out concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011. The concert will take place at the London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on Friday 4th September 2015. When four young men were cast in the television roles of a struggling rock band inspired by The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night, few could have predicted the impact The Monkees would make on music and pop culture at large, an impact that still reverberates 50 years later. The Monkees’ cult runs deep in the UK, inspiring boy bands everywhere and racking up two more Top 20 albums in 1989 and 1997. Their last tour of the UK in 2011 climaxed with a soldout show at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The forthcoming London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo concert on September 4th will be their first concert since that time and the untimely passing of Davy Jones in February 2012. Now Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork carry on that tradition with a full evening of magic music and multimedia splendor, including rare films and images from their series. Their new show features all of the Monkees hits, including Last Train To Clarkesville and Daydream Believer, plus an intimate acoustic set and selections from their cult classic, HEAD. This Evening With The Monkees is sure to be one to remember for fans on every level.

Stereophonics new album and single

When you visit the newly opened George Jones Museum in Nashville, you’ll not only see Billy Yates’ contribution to George Jones musical legacy through his songs, such as Jones’ 1993 CMA Vocal Event of the Year, “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair” and Jones’ Grammy-Award-Winning, “Choices”, but you’ll also see Yates artistic talents on display. 22

Stereophonics release their 9th studio album, ‘Keep The Village Alive’, on 11th September. The first single to be taken from the album is ‘C’est La Vie’ - a breath of fresh air, petrol charged and whip smart. The accompanying video is once again directed by Kelly Jones and is his sixth successive video direction for the band. Kelly collaborated with acclaimed cinematographer John Conroy (Broadchurch, Fortitude, Luther) and sees Antonia Thomas (Misfits, Sunshine on Leith), Aneurin Barnard (Hunky Dory, Ironclad) and Mathew Aubrey (Made In Dagenham, Just Jim) all star. ‘Keep The Village Alive’ comes hot on the heels of the acclaimed, platinum selling ‘Graffiti On The Train’ (2013) and once again Kelly Jones has written all the songs and shared production duties with long-time

collaborator Jim Lowe. The album was recorded at ICP Studios in Brussels and at Stylus Studios in London. Since winning a Brit Award for Best New Group in 1998 Stereophonics have gone from strength to strength, consistently delivering outstanding music over several decades, a band consistently at the very top of their game. They are the eighth group to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums ‘ the others being: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, Genesis, Oasis, Blur and U2. The band headline V Festival August 22nd and 23rd.

Janet Jackson new album release July 7

There is no official confirmation from a record company or the artist, but many different sources are pointing to a new Janet Jackson album on July 7. Many of the sources, which include Gigwise and Stereogum, have contacted local major retailers who have all confirmed that Jackson is on their future release schedule. The firmest information seems to be from the website JanetClub who posted a picture of a promo disc from a local FYE store: They also posted the original schedule that started people looking into whether the date was true. Right now, Jackson has not officially announced that she is affiliated with a label although site Chicago Defender said on May 8 that she has signed with Atlantic Records; however, they are reporting a July 10 release. Which is correct is in question as this is the time when the world is supposed to be transitioning to a common Friday release date, which would make July 10 more likely. Jackson’s last album, Discipline, did go to number 1 but faded quickly soon after and was considered a sales disappointment. After seven straight platinum albums, Discipline failed to even achieve gold.

Joss Stone to release seventh album

British soul sensation Joss Stone is back with her seventh studio album ‘Water For Your Soul’, set for release on July 17th. The follow up to 2012’s ‘The Soul Sessions Vol.2’, the LP represents a musical departure for Stone. Infused with elements of reggae, ‘world’ sounds, hip hop and of course, soul, the self written and co-produced ‘Water For Your Soul’ sees Joss venturing into previously unexplored territory - collaborating with the likes of Nitin Sawney, Damian Marley and Dennis Bovell. ‘Water For Your Soul’ is the fruits of her travels in sound, demonstrating how the teen soul prodigy has blossomed into an artist of style and substance. It is an album that pulses with the liquid groove of reggae, dazzles with the mix and match sonic adventure of hip hop, shimmers with the exotic sounds of world music and delivers the emotional belt of R’n’B. “It’s really a combination of all the things I like,” explains Joss. The album has been four years in gestation, the product of world travels, emotional adventures, and smoky jams with reggae royalty. A core musical strand can be traced back to LA sessions for Dave Stewart and Mick Jagger’s project Superheavy, on which Stone collaborated with Jamaican superstar Damian Marley. Says Joss: “I’ve always loved reggae and Damian gave me the confidence to go through that door”. One of the record’s standout tracks and the first single to be taken from the album is ‘The Answer’, a cut featuring snappy percussion, a funky guitar line, gospel BV’s and Joss’ trademark soulful vocal. The track was co - written with legendary reggae maestro Dennis Bovell. Speaking about Bovell’s qualities and influence on the record in general, Joss says, “He’s like a reggae encyclopaedia. And he can really sing. His pitch and range is massive. He’s funny too, a great person to work with”. The NMW - MAY 15, 2015

Bieber’s glowing probation report Justin Bieber has reportedly received a glowing report from his probation officer. The 21-year-old star pled no contest to vandalism after being accused of egging the Calabasas, California 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. ‘His overall performance on probation has been good and he continues to display a cooperative attitude,’ a report issued by Justin’s probation officer reads, according to the New York Daily News. ‘More importantly, the defendant appears to be sincere in his efforts to successfully complete this grant of probation.’ Apparently the review was submitted on Monday to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Anita Dymant. Justin was not present during the hearing. The Confident hitmaker is said to have completed 12 anger management sessions as part of the terms of his probation. He has also signed up with a group in South Los Angeles, with the aim of helping improve its facilities. Justin must complete almost five days of community service with the South LA group in order to complete his sentence in the egg-throwing case. Judge Dymant has scheduled an update hearing on the matter for August 3. Justin was sued once again by the Schwartz family in relation to the egg-throwing episode. Jeff Schwartz brought forth another lawsuit against the heartthrob in March, accusing Bieber’s entourage of causing emotional distress just before the incident. Apparently during Memorial Day weekend in 2013, Schwartz and his friend walked over to Bieber, asking him to stop speeding around the neighbourhood and putting people’s lives in jeopardy with reckless driving. ‘Schwartz also claims Bieber hurled obscenities at his wife and minor daughter,’ TMZ previously reported.

An album, remix album, compilation, mix series, autobiography and photo-book all rolled into one - a chance for artists to reveal a wealth of new material, whilst also dipping into their back-catalogue and allowing it to be re-imagined by new artists. The Little Black Book gets inside the artists’ minds and looks to the future and what’s to come. For the second edition of Little Black Book, the reigns have been handed to the prolific and much loved Groove Armada. From late 80s inspiration at the free parties of house collective DiY to the worldwide success of six albums, long summers in Ibiza and global live tours - with such a storied history, it’s hard to image where they’d even begin with a project like this. “People were saying if you’re going to write new material you need to put it out on a major, get the band back together, unleash the machine. But we don’t want to do that. We want to play and make house music, and that’s all’. The mix on CD1 is made up of 100% GA originals and remixes. A 77 minute journey that includes 7 exclusives, a Tony Allen jam, Candi Staton, a Balearic remake of a GA classic and their rework of Arthur Baker anthem, Rockers Revenge. The second disc then sees 12 excellent producers redefine classic Groove Armada records, resulting in some spectacular new versions of tracks like ‘Love Sweet Sound’, ‘Superstylin’, ‘Chicago and ‘I See You Baby’ from the likes of Kolsch, andhim, Huxley, Jaymo & Andy George, Joris Voorn, PillowTalk, Emperor

Diddy shares favourite Biggie memory

Diddy has gushed over the ‘great times’ he shared with late rapper The Notorious B.I.G. Before Biggie, real name Christopher Wallace, was killed by a drive-by shooter in 1997 at the age of 24, he and Diddy were extremely close pals. And the 45year-old music mogul has reminisced about his most cherished moment with the deceased hip hop legend. “My favourite memory was, we were doing the Soul Train Awards, and I bought Biggie some shoes that were three sizes too small,” Diddy recalled on Andy Cohen’s Bravo show Watch What Happens Live. “And we found out about it 15 seconds before we had to go on, so he walked out performing on the back of his heels of the shoes. And he was saying right before we got on, ‘Your shoes are always right! Why can’t you get my shoes right?’ “I was cracking up as I was coming out. It was great. So many great times.” Diddy has been dating singer Cassie Ventura for more than seven years now. But the father-of-six, who has never been married, is not interested in tying the knot anytime soon. “I think you have to be ready for it, ‘cause it’s somebody else’s heart involved, and that’s just a lot of responsibility,” Diddy, real name Sean Combs, explained. “And I don’t want to be going to court and having somebody, like, interfere in my relationship. I’d rather just do the Goldie Hawn. “I will give a contract. I will commit to a contract, a love contract...You have to have an agreement. I don’t think I’m ready right now. But I’m a great boyfriend.” NMW - MAY 15, 2015

Sheeran’s savvy advice Ed Sheeran thinks pop stars are more “sensible” and “savvy” these days. The 24-year-old singer songwriter is arguably one of the most popular musicians on the planet thanks to his hit albums + and x. With several awards under his belt, including four Brits, Ed is no doubt an expert on what sells, which he thinks is a valuable quality to have. ‘I know it’s not a very artistic thing to be, into the way things work, but I wanna know everything. Drake’s the same, Taylor Swift knows everything about everything,” he explained to British magazine The Big Issue. ‘Pop stars nowadays are just more sensible, more savvy. Because it doesn’t last as long. It’s do your time, earn your money, buy some property and when it all goes to sh*t you’ve got something to fall back on.” He added that upon signing a record deal, his manager ordered for Ed to be given the same deal as James Blunt. It certainly paid off, as the red-headed star admits if offered the chance alone he would’ve instead got excited and ignored the money aspect. True to his word, Ed has three houses to his name already - a far cry from his days sleeping rough in London, UK, while trying to make it big in 2009. ‘I actually thrived, because I had to work, I had to find more gigs, places to stay. I never woke up thinking I’m hard done by,” he insisted. ‘What has p**sed me off is I kept a diary from 2009 to 2010 and then I stopped because I just got really busy. If I’d written everything down from that point to this point it would’ve been a very cool thing to publish. I’ve still got the passage about ringing round, ‘You got a sofa? No... Spare room? Nah...’ Yikes. Heating vent.’

with a career spanning for more than 40 years.

Rolling Stones ‘Satisfaction’ 50th anniversary vinyl single

The Rolling Stones’signature tune classic, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, will be reissued as a 12 inch vinyl single to mark its 50th anniversary in June. Satisfaction was originally released on June 8, 1965 and gave The Stones their first American number one record. It reached number one on the Record Word chart on July 3 replacing The Byrds Mr Tambourine Man and number one the following week on Billboard and Cashbox knocking off I Can’t Help Myself by The Four Tops. The b-side to the record was The Under Assistant West Coast Promotion Man, a stab at the American record industry at the time.

Jo Satriani releasing 15th solo album

Legendary guitarist, JOE SATRIANI, announces plans to release his 15th solo studio album, ‘SHOCKWAVE

SUPERNOVA’, on Friday 24th July, making him one of the first to utilise the new ‘Friday, Global Release Day’ for music. The LABEL album will be released on CD, download and 2 LP vinyl. Satriani’s World Tour begins 17th September in Europe (US Tour planned early 2016). The UK leg of the European tour starts November 1st at the O2 Apollo Manchester with special guest Dan Patlansky. It would be easy to call Shockwave Supernova a ‘masterpiece’ or ‘the last word on guitar’ from the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer. Satch, however, sees it much more personally. He has consistently advanced the artistry of the instrument; an effort he dedicated himself to on 18th September, 1970, the day his idol Jimi Hendrix died. Recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, California, Satriani assembled the dynamic trio of world-class musicians who had recently been part of his global tour; renowned keyboardist and guitarist Mike Keneally, a veteran of several Satch outings and recordings; along with drumming whiz Marco Minnemann and bass extraordinaire Bryan Beller. ‘I couldn’t have asked for a better band to help bring these songs to life,’ says Satriani. The album also sees Satriani once again joining forces co-producer and engineer John Cuniberti. Satch and Cuniberti share production on Shockwave Supernova, as they have on numerous albums ‘ their shared history dates back to the guitar star’s 1986 debut album, Not Of This Earth and its follow-up, the platinum-selling, critically acclaimed, Surfing with the Alien.

JLo: Vegas is trouble

The 45-year-old singerand-actress is preparing to perform a string of concerts in Sin City at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino next year. And Jennifer sees herself partaking in huge amounts of fun while she’s in town. ‘It’s the best restaurants, a lot of shopping. You can get into trouble over there,” she laughed to USA Today. “I get into the clean kind of trouble. I’m not a gambler, and I’m not into the nightlife as much, but I have plans to enjoy myself.” Jennifer has a lot on her plate professionally, as she’ll be serving as a judge on American Idol in addition to starring on new TV series Shades of Blue around the time her Vegas residency commences in

But the mother of seven-year-old twins Emme and Maximilian has high hopes for her shows in Nevada, especially since she’ll be just CUME a four-hour driveWEEKS from her life SPINS in Los Angeles. ‘It’ll probably be a little bit of a challenge scheduling-wise, but nothing that anybody doesn’t think [I] can handle,” Jennifer noted. “I’m excited. It’s something I’ve thought about a lot. Just being in one place [and] not having to tour the world as much.” Jennifer begins work on the production of her Vegas shows next month. The entertainer has many ideas about how to make her concerts memorable. “There’s a lot of different things over the years people have come to know me as [and] so many different things we can delve into,” she said. “We haven’t started exactly, but in my mind, I know it’s going to be a multifaceted, highenergy kind of block party.” Jennifer’s Las Vegas string of concerts will officially kick off on January 20, 2016.

Brett Eldredge has been on a nice roll as of late and continues to build his fortunes at Country radio. “Lose My Mind” (Atlantic Nashville) is yet another example of why this guy is doing so well at the format. The Zac Brown Band keeps rolling out hit after hit. “Loving You Easy” (Republic Nashville) is their latest and it won’t be long before this new gem hits the very top of the charts, Lady Antebellum has moved past their tragic accident and remain as strong as ever. “Long Stretch Of Love” (Capitol Nashville) is their latest offering and many of our music and program directors have nothing but good things to say. It’s always great to see George Strait on the charts. “Let It Go” (MCA Nashville) is creating some early spins and a strong buzz so we’ll see how it all plays out for him in the coming weeks. Newcomer Drake White is fighting hard and all of his work might just be paying off. We caught his act at the House of Blues in Los Angeles recently opening for Maddie and Tae and he’s quite an amazing talent. His current single “It Feels Good” (Dot) continues to win some positive praise from the format and we wish him the very best. Gary Allan is back with another track and that’s always a good and interesting thing. This time out he’s taking “Hangover Tonight” (MCA Nashville) out for a good ride. Kip Moore continues to win praise from programmers and music critics alike. “I’m To Blame” (MCA Nashville) is his latest and this one has quite a lot of building and staying power. I also really love the new single from Thomas Rhett. Already born into Country royalty, his new “Crash And Burn” (Valory Music/Universal) is why we keep listening. Darius Rucker finally has a new single out and about and that’s a welcome sign of good things to come. “Baby It’s Cold Outside” (Liberty) is his latest and it comes just in time for an early Summer. Blake Shelton is already set for the Summer of 2015 as he brings his “Sangria” (WB/WEA) to the party. Tim Hadler is getting his buzz on and it’s causing some ears to notice. “One Plus One” (Ind) is the jam to keep a watch for in the coming weeks. Eric Church has not only teamed up with Keith Urban for a #1 single, he’s got another that is rocking at Country radio. “Like A Wrecking Ball” (EMI Nashville) is what we are talking about and our music and program directors are raving about this one – I’m just sayin’. Jason Aldean is also rocking strong as his plans with a massive live tour with Kenny Chesney are unfolding. “Tonight Looks Good On You” (Broken Bow) helps to pick up his stock a bit as he gets set for the tour of his career. Mo Pitney has a good thing going and is taking advantage of the situation. Many out there are all over the single “Country” (Curb) and for good reason – it’s a solid winner. We’re also happy to report that The Eli Young Band continues to build on their good fortunes. The latest track from them in “Turn It On” (Universal Republic) has all the right stuff. Also getting some love and respect at radio Eric Lee Beddingfield. We are thrilled to report that his “I Just Wanna Play” (Rebel Dawg) is a real favorite among our panel of music and program directors and they can’t seem to get enough of this one. Paco & Lauren O`Keefe have paired for a new single that deserves your attention. “The Time Of My Life” (Ind) is the one that you should spin around the block a few times. Dan & Shay are fast becoming one of the hardest working guys on the planet. “Nothin’ Like You” (WB/WEA) is their latest and it’s solid. Newcomer Chris Cox is getting music praise and action for his new single. “Sunday Morning Guitar” (CMM) is the gem we are talking about and watch for this one to keep building strong. This is our Indie Artist and Label issue and artists like Chris Cox deserve your continued support. I will have more for you on the greatest hits from the Country world 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 15, 2015

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?

Halocyan is dedicated to representing not just the present and future of electronic music, but also its rich history.

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.
