THE INDIE ARTIST MOVEMENT

Each year New Music Weekly takes great pride in honoring the independent artist. They are truly the life blood of the industry almost always underestimated and at times ignored by many of the music trades and publications. We started NMW mainly to give a voice to the indie artist so this cause is very close to our hearts. The struggle for new artists and bands here and abroad continues and as more and more recording artists in general take stock of what is going on in today’s music industry, many choose to retain their independence and to take control of their own destiny. With the result of recent changes in the music industry moving from retail into the digital world, the major record labels have had to go from bad to worse. In order for the labels to justify putting money behind recording artists they have made new deals and contracts that have become almost overbearing. These deals include everything from them being your publisher, agent and all around control machine dipping into just about every opportunity that a recording artist could have to make any money. When all of this is said and done the signed recording artists is really left with nothing. Some of the up-start recording artists have decided to form their own labels and deal with the major labels on somewhat of a limited partnership. This way they have the ability to control their destiny, deliver finished masters at their discretion and keep the A&R departments out of the creative process. This sort of new-deal also can keep the majors out of the publishing interests of an artist which is one thing you never want to give up if one can avoid it. Once the legal lines are drafted by an artist’s legal representatives they can then go about the business of creating music without the fear that they are being totally ripped off. There are certain ways to avoid the pitfalls of major record deals. One of the best ways of dealing with the majors going from the independent arena is by a position of strength. Upstart artists from the past from Ed Sheeran to Taylor Swift all started in some type of off-label situation. Much of the early work was done by the artist in getting their music out there via smaller labels that eventually turned into a lucrative business. That is why many times we suggest to artists that they go directly to radio with their music provided that it’s professionally recorded and build a story that will eventually attract the attention of a major for a better deal. If you are breaking a hit single on your own terms the majors are less likely to get in your way and your deal will be a much better one. By making the first move you have moved yourself far ahead of the pack. Otherwise. you really are nothing more than an artist just trying to get a record deal and that crop is so overwhelming that your chances for a signing are much slimmer. Even when a deal is locked in at a major label level there may be other issues that you are not fully aware of. Labels have priorities and for the newer artist you may not really know where you fall in the line of priorities. We’ve heard too many horror stories of a label actually sabotaging the very artists they signed because they had other artists that they believed had a higher ranking for their attention. The majors have weekly conference calls to their field staff and if you are not on the priority list you might fare better to run your own label and control your destiny rather then being put on the back burner of a major record label. That’s why so many artists and bands choose to remain independent. New Music Weekly continues to be the best friend to the independent artist and band. Our weekly charts are a mix of both major and indie artists and the stations that report to NMW are extremely favorable to the independent. This provides the opportunity for us to help “level the playing field”. Through the STS radio tracking systems to our publication that delivers new and vital information to the entire music industry, we continue our quest as leaders of what we call the “new music revolution”. We applaud the independent artist and know that we are always here for you for any and all of your music needs.

Chemical Diary graces the cover of our very special Indie Artists Issue. They first were introduced to New Music Weekly stations and our readers in the Summer of 2016 with their debut single “They Are People Too”. The duo is comprised of guitarist Dudee along with his brother, bassist, and singer, Roland Numbers. They write and produce original music and as of this writing they are building a following. Their debut single was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles California with engineer Morgan Stratton at the helm. For decades the famous studio was home for an endless list of huge contemporary artists including such luminaries as The Black Keys, Jason Mraz, Sheryl Crow, Beck, Daughtry, Paramore, Rascal Flatts and Maroon 5 among others. Their single was later mixed and mastered at over at Studio City Sound in Studio City California by engineer Jeff Ryon. The duo are originally from Bandera, Texas but find now themselves spending quite a bit of time in Los Angeles for recording opportunities. They are also is a powerhouse traveling rock and blues act ready to hit the road on a moment’s notice to provide strong original music. The duo travels the USA in a band van, and a camper trailer much like the early shows provided by the legendary George Thorogood & the Destroyers. With the early success at radio by their debut “They Are People Too”, a track that charted here at New Music Weekly with impressive numbers, the group is now set to go back in the studio and record more original music. Chemical Diary would like to extend an invite to stay in touch with them as their story continues to develop. The duo would also like to send their thanks and appreciation to all of their fans for their support. During a time when music listeners have so many varied choices the team is very grateful to all of those that have stood by them doing their struggle in this extremely competitive music industry. 3

The biggest pairing we’ve seen to date at Top40 radio involves quite the massive pop crew. Case in point is DJ Khaled with Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper & Lil Wayne, Together they join forces for the single “I’m The One” (Epic) and if proof and power in numbers mean anything they are sure displaying all of that and more with this monster radio hit. The pairing of DNCE and Nicki Minaj is bringing about much cheer from radio. “Kissing Strangers” (Republic/Universal) is the jam that I’m talking about and this one appears to have all the legs and spins it needs to break some bigger chart action. Chris Brown is back at the format and that could mean trouble. Regardless of his past, many of our music and program directors are singing the praises of the new “Privacy” (RCA/RLG) track. Halsey is building vast fortunes at radio. The new “Now Or Never” (Astralwerks/Capitol) is the talk of the town and watch for some big weeks ahead for this gem. Lady Gaga has picked up quite a bit of steam as of late. Always a solid fighter she’s taking “The Cure” (Streamline/Interscope) out for a spin at the format and so far this one appears to be well on its way to bigger and better things. Shawn Mendes is as hot as any young recording artist out there today. From You Tube star to radio his new “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” (Island/UMG) is just what every radio programmer needs. Niall Horan is also making the most of his new solo fame and fortune. He wears it quite well as his new “Slow Hands” (Capitol) takes flight. Train has a new single out and about that seems to be getting raves. “Drink Up” (Columbia) is their latest festive release that appears to be pulling in some rather strong early spin action. You may want to spend a little more time with this one for sure. French Montana has joined forces with a few newcomers and is taking the new single “Unforgettable” (Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic) out for a spin. Hailee Steinfeld also has a new single out and about that deserves your attention. “Most Girls” (Republic/Universal) is the latest from this singer/ actress and all around young business women. We’ll see how it all plays out for her in the coming weeks but so far so very good for the rising star. Katy Perry is taking her new best friend Migos out for a chart blitz and it appears to be working for her. “Bon Appetite” (Capitol) is the new jam and this one is pulling some crazy numbers in the very early stages which is an indicator that something very special is about to happen. Something very special is also happening for newcomer Garrett Young. His debut single “Do You Hear My Cries” (West Coast Collective) has had strong week after week action and that is a true indicator that this young and extremely talented newcomer is on his way. As this is a very special Indie Artists issue, all you have to do is take a look at this week’s charts from AC40 to Top40 to know what it’s all about. The pairing of Linkin Park with Kiiara has been a solid winner. “Heavy” (WB/WEA) is the jam that is quietly sneaking past everyone so be on the watch for that one. Maroon 5 has teamed up with Future for what is really pure magic. “Cold” (Interscope) is the duet that is bringing cheers to all the boys and girls. Recording artist Kenneth Roy is back and it and make no mistake about that. His new “Let Your Love Come Down” (Physico) is off like a rocket and there is more to come. John Ratliff and his band mates Receptacle are having a solid run with “Love Is Magic” (Ind). Get ready as they are set to cross from AC40 to Top40 in the coming weeks and that should be impressive. The Lane Project are making bold moves at the format. “Any News For Me?” (Violet) is an extremely impressive debut and watch for some even bigger weeks ahead for this talented music project. Dianne Meinke continues her winning ways and make no mistake about that. Her current “Secret Lover” single is set to hit the top at AC40 and the same will no doubt repeat at this format. Again, this is our special Indie Artists issue and please take a look at some of the stellar independent artists and bands that are breaking fast right here on the charts and pages of New Music Weekly.

Charlie Puth is back with a great single for AC radio and that’s always welcome news at the format. “Attention” (Artist Partners/ Atlantic) is a nice cutting edge track for Charlie and he’s been making the rounds on the national media scene to help push the song across the finish line. We’ll be able to see how that all plays out for him in the coming weeks. One of his idols in John Mayer is also out and about at AC radio. His new single entitled “Still Feel Like Your Man” (Columbia/Sony) is pure John through and through. The real question is can John Mayer keep the support he once had from music and program directors alike. We’ll know the answer to that question sooner than later. Julia Brennan has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. The single “Inner Demons” (Columbia) continues to win the hearts and minds of many in the music industry and our panel of music and program directors just love it. I’m also happy to report that the young and uber-talented Shawn Mendes has released yet another gem for all the boys and girls. “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” (Island/UMG) is yet another single with massive potential. Shawn has really locked himself in as a must add artist and it appears that everything he’s released so far has moved to the top of the charts. Train has a new single at the format and that’s always good solid news. “Drink Up” (Columbia) is the jam that appears to be working at radio and in a very big way. This band has a solid legion of fans that always serve them well so this should be a no brainer for a programming slot. Also getting out-of-the-box raves is the latest offering from Katy Perry. This time out she’s taking recording artist Migos out for some additional support and that is helping to launch the track “Bon Appetite” (Capitol) in a very big way. Watch for some even bigger weeks ahead for this magical pairing to be sure. The Lane Project are taking the music world by storm. “Any News For Me?” (Violet) Is the debut single that has spent a great number of weeks high atop the “most added” columns at AC radio. The track is now crossing over to Top40 which is an indicator that is has mass appeal. Watch for some even bigger things to come for the Lane Project to be sure. Lady Gaga is back at radio with yet another excellent offering. The Cure” (Streamline/Interscope) finds her at her very best and as she appears to be finally be back on track there is room to move for this talented icon. Ed Sheeran has released another masterpiece at radio and I believe it’s one of his best. “Castle On The Hill” (Atlantic) is quite a story song and the only thing that could get in its way is the fact that is last single was such a monster that he now appears to be competing with himself. Renee Zawawi is back at the format with another gem. This time out she’s taken on the classic “Smooth Operator” (Pop Star/PSP) out for a spin and the results are quite amazing. Bruce Blackman is building his fortunes at radio. “Is That Your Yacht” (Starbuck) is the one to watch and listen to all at the same time. Newcomer Garrett Young has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. His debut single “Do You Hear My Cries” (West Coast Collective) is brilliant and radio is loving this entry big time. It’s also crossing over to Top40 and that tells you all you really need to know. Morgan Heritage and DreZion are making magic as they take the very new “Reggae Night” (CTBC Music Group/Empire) to even greater heights. Niall Horan is back with one of his best to date. “Slow Hands” (Capitol) is another masterpiece from the former boy band member now turned into a real recording artist. Dianne Meinke continues to amaze at the format. Her current smash hit single in “Secret Lover” continues to build spins by leaps and bounds as it hits #1. John Ratliff has teamed up with his band mates Receptacle for a real winner. “Love Is Magic” has had solid success week after week and this one could just go all the way. This is our very special Indie Artist Issue. Please take your time to check out all of the independent artists and bands that are making massive progress on our charts. We wish them all continued success.

Chemical Diary made their mark in the Summer of 2016 with their debut single “They Are People Too”. The dynamic duo comprised of guitarist Dudee along with his talented brother, bassist, and singer, Roland Numbers, the team writes and produces original music that is building a following from coast to coast. Even many well respected music and program directors have been singing their praises as of late.

find themselves spending quite a bit of time in the Los Angeles area where recording opportunities abound. With sound stage equipment at their disposal including amps, microphones, a top of the line PA and lighting capable of producing an intimate “live show”, or a large concert event, Chemical Diary is a powerhouse traveling rock and blues act ready to hit the road on a moment’s notice to provide strong original music. They come “ready to play” with a band van, and a camper trailer much like the early shows provided by the legendary George Thorogood & the Destroyers. With Chemical Diary you get a grassroots sound combined with strong original music that many radio programmers find especially appealing these days with the abundance of over produced music.

Their debut single was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles with engineer Morgan Stratton at the helm. The track was later mixed and mastered at Studio City Sound by Jeff Ryon. The duo of brothers are originally from Bandera, Texas but

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

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

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

AC/HOT AC REPORTERS

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

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

Ariana Grande returns home to Florida Ariana Grande has returned home to her family in Florida as she continues to mourn the lives lost in the bomb attack at her Monday night (22May17) concert in Manchester, England. The Problem hitmaker had just wrapped up her show at Manchester Arena when a suicide bomber detonated a device directly outside the venue, targeting fans as they headed home. The death toll currently stands at 22, with at least 59 others injured, and Ariana shared a few words on Twitter late on Monday, admitting she was “broken” by the tragedy. “from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry,” she added. “i don’t have words.” Ariana has since flown back to the U.S. to be with her loved ones in Boca Raton, where she was photographed arriving on Tuesday. According to People.com, the 23-year-old was greeted at the airport by her relatives. “It’s so, so sad,” a source tells the outlet. “She loves her fans and is absolutely crushed and devastated as you can imagine. She can’t believe this happened. She just wants to be with her family and loved ones right now.” Reports suggest she has cancelled her next two dates in London on Thursday (25May17) and Friday (26May17), while the rest of the European leg of her Dangerous Woman Tour remains in limbo as her management team assesses the situation. Another insider tells Entertainment Weekly, “As of right now, the tour is not cancelled. Right now, the focus is on the victims and grieving for them. We’re not focused on the tour.” Ariana is physically “fine”, but emotionally, “a mess”, a source explains, adding, “She’s just absolutely beside herself.” Police in Manchester have made arrests in connection to the bombing, but it is believed the 23-year-old suicide bomber himself was killed in the blast. Thousands of city locals staged a vigil for the victims of the attack on Tuesday (23May17).

with pals - all dressed in gold team jackets. She added the caption: “Golden Girls!” Last week (ends19May17), Carrie gushed about her husband via Twitter, writing: “I am so proud of this man! Mike Fisher making an impact beyond numbers for Predators in playoffs.” Luke Bryan, new dad Thomas Rhett, Brett Eldredge, Lee Brice, and Dierks Bentley also posted photos from the big game on social media. Dierks was there despite the fact illness forced him to scrap a show in Alabama over the weekend - the Black singer held up several notes in an Instagram video.

Chris Brown restraining order hearing postponed

Chris Brown has won the first round of his latest legal battle with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran after she failed to show up in court on Tuesday (23May17). The model, who is shooting a TV show in New Orleans, Louisiana, was hoping to phone in to the court and testify against her ex, who she claims has threatened her life and that of a friend, but the judge overseeing the case refused to even consider her permanent restraining order request if she wasn’t standing in front of him. The case has been continued so Karrueche could file the proper paperwork, which would allow to appear via phone if she could not attend a hearing. Chris was also a no-show. His lawyer maintains the singer was never properly served with legal documents. The Kiss Kiss hitmaker, who was arrested in 2009 after beating up his then-girlfriend Rihanna and sentenced to five years of probation, counselling, and hard labour after confessing to a charge of felony assault, was previously hit with a temporary restraining order after Tran accused him of attacking her and threatening to kill her following the end of their four-year relationship in 2015. He addressed his latest legal woes in a recent rant on Instagram, in which he vehemently denied hitting Karrueche and insists he is the one being harassed by her team of publicists. Commenting on a report about the restraining order on Baller Alert, he wrote, “I’m so sick of these thirsty (desperate) adults. Her team is trying their best. For what? No one has served me and the lengths they are going (to), I should call them stalkers. What’s even more f**ked up is that, they played off my past by saying I abused her. C’mon

now, opening old wounds to make Kae (Tran) a victim, that’s some evil s**t... I want nothing to do with her. You think I wanna chase or still be with someone who would try to destroy me? She doesn’t need a restraining order from me. I need one from them (her team) (sic).”

Katy Perry hugs fans in New York

Katy Perry spent part of her thsi week hugging her fans in New York following a bomb blast at Ariana Grande’s concert in the U.K. The Roar hitmaker was in a car leaving a Big Apple radio station when she asked her driver to stop so she could hop out of the vehicle and share her gratitude with devotees who had been waiting to catch a glimpse of her. In video footage of the encounter, obtained by TMZ.com, Katy ditches her security guards to spread a little love among her supporters. “I don’t have time to do it all (sign autographs and take pictures) but I just want to give you a hug and tell you how much I love you,” she says in the clip, as she walks up to various people and gives them a warm embrace. Katy then urged her fans to do the same for their loved ones. “Will you please just tell someone that you love them?” she pleads in the footage. “Don’t be afraid of the love.” The singer’s act of kindness appeared to be prompted by the tragedy which struck after Ariana’s tour stop in Manchester, England on Monday night (22May17), when a suicide bomber set off an explosive as concertgoers were leaving the show at Manchester Arena. After the news of the incident broke online late on Monday, Katy took to Twitter and posted: “Praying for everyone at @ArianaGrande’s show”. “Broken hearted for the families tonight,” she later added. “Broken hearted for Ari. Broken hearted for the state of this world.” Further addressing the tragedy during a radio chat with Elvis Duran in New York on Tuesday morning, Katy said, “I can’t really tell anyone else how they should feel, but I just feel devastated... I think the greatest thing we can do now is unite as people, as fan bases, all of it... I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other - no barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.” She added, “The U.K., they are just so passionate about music just like anyone else, but they are just so in it, and so dedicated, and so loyal. If this (interview) gets out to anyone, I just want to say that I love all of you out there, and I just know that some of our fan bases kind of go both ways. Ari’s fans are my fans, and my fans are Ari’s fans. We’re just all loving on each other, and we should just stay loving on each other.” The explosion claimed the lives of 22 people, including eight-year-old Grande fan Saffie Roussos, and injured

more than 50 others. Members of Muslim extremist group ISIS have claimed responsibility for the incident. Thousands of Manchester locals staged a vigil in the city on Tuesday to honour the victims of the bomb blast.

One of the biggest pop cultural phonemes in our lifetime has been the Comic Con conventions (which, if you can imagine, actually began in 1970!). And tickets for the main San Diego Comic Con reportedly sell out in record time. While Comic Con is geared primarily toward movie, comic book, and graphic novel fans - Starlight Productions in Massachusetts conjured up the idea of a music related event; and so MusicCon 2017 was created, which took place on the 7weekend of May 20 and 21, 2017 at the Sturbridge Host Hotel and Conference Center in Massachusetts, which is approximately an hour from Boston. The coolest part of the convention was its “80’s theme” - dubbed “Back to the 80s” - and some of the biggest icons of the decade were snagged for the event - who were more than happy to pose for selfies and sign all sorts of memorabilia. While most of the performers got their start over 30 years ago, they most certainly have been very active over the years and are not just relying on past glories alone. The attraction with the biggest buzz was actor/singer Corey Feldman (most know for “Stand By Me” (1986) “The Lost Boys” (1987), and a slew of flicks with now deceased partner Corey Haim). Feldman’s currently focusing on music and said he is in the midst of a “44 date tour” in support of his 2016 release, “Angelic 2 the Core.” Chip Z’Nuff, from the rock band Enuff Z’Nuff, was also very excited to share that his band (in its original lineup) has been touring this past year with Don Dokken (Dokken was also present at the event). Z’Nuff also spoke quite proudly about the bands 2016 release “Clowns Lounge.” In the midst of a well publicized power struggle in the camp of the band RATT, Stephen Percy was in great spirits and was most positive about the groups (currently featuring original members Percy, Warren DeMartini, and Juan Croucier) future. While RATT has not put out any new material since 2010, Percy said new music music will be forth coming, and that the group are about to be hitting up some marquee festivals, including the Rocklahoma Festival this month, and playing both Rockfest Kansas City and the Sweden Rock Festival in June. MusicCon was not just focused on “rock bands”, as singer/model Samantha Fox made her first local appearance in eons. While she keeps a lower profile now than she did in her heyday, Fox talked enthusiastically about her forthcoming autobiography (to be title “Forever” - which she said she would be undertaking a book tour in support of) and a presently unnamed new disc of songs “based her her life experiences.” Also present was Tawny Kitean; actress and the most successful video vixen of all time (with her appearances in the iconic 80’s Whitesnake videos, as well as gracing the cover of RATT’s 1984 breakout “Out of the Cellar” record). Kitean, whose has barely changed since the days when she dominated the MTV airwaves, is hard at work as the executive producer of the show, “Moms Anonymous,” which she said should be “available for streaming in July.” While music was the main focus of the event, Samantha Newark, who was the original voice for the very popular 80’s cartoon “Jem,” was certainly a coup for MusicCon. Newark reminisced most positively about her time voicing the shows main character, and how quickly her life changed due to its popularity. Ironically, Newark, who has also been a singer for years, only did the speaking voice for Jem, while the characters singing was handled by singer/actress Britta Phillips (who is know for being one of the stars of the 1988 girl-band flick “Satisfaction”). While meeting and getting selfies/signatures was the main attraction for the attendees, an added bonus was that some of

the acts performed - karaoke style - at a post show event on Saturday night. MusicCon was a great nostalgic filled time. Hopefully the convention will return in 2018, as it would great to expand and possibly have musicians from the 70s, 90’s. and even some possibly some post millennial acts.

Chris Cornell funeral set for 26 May

The late-Chris Cornell will be laid to rest on Friday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in a private service. Cornell’s body was found early last Thursday morning in his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit, MI. He had just finished a performance with Soundgarden and was found by a band security guard after his wife became alarmed during a phone call. Cornell had committed suicide by hanging himself. Toxicology tests are being run to determine the level of drugs in his system. Specifically, they are looking for the level of Ativan which the singer may have double dosed in the hours before his death. An overdose of Ativan can cause suicidal thoughts. The singer’s body was transported to Los Angles on Sunday. The Hollywood Forever Cemetery is one of the oldest in Los Angeles and is the final resting place of such other musicians, performers and executives as Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Ramone, Kim Fowley, Gidget Gein of Marilyn Manson, Judy Garland, Nelson Riddle, Nelson Eddy, Woody Herman and Art Pepper along with such Hollywood greats as Douglas Fairbanks, Peter Lorre, Janet Gaynor, Rudolph Valentino and Mickey Rooney.

Baltimore’s Megosh is thrilled to announce that they will be heading out on yet another Couch Tour,

Bold new Big Loud Records artist Jillian Jacqueline has released her raw – yet tender – new track and video, “Hate Me.” Fearlessly laying her heart on the table, the song is now available across all digital and streaming platforms and its gritty music video is premiering on CMT and VEVO. Co-written by Jacqueline with Tofer Brown and Hillary Lindsey, “Hate Me” cuts straight to the core of a broken relationship, pleading for a reason to give it up once and for all. “’Hate Me’ is such a moment of emotional exposure for me,” reveals Jacqueline. “It was very stream-of-consciousness to write, and conveys a coping-mechanism perspective that compels me to take all of the blame for the pain that is about to be caused by a breakup. Hatred and anger make people easier to walk away from, so the phrase ‘hate me’ is actually a way of saving yourself from having to bear the sadness from breaking someone’s heart.” NMW - MAY 26, 2017

Following Chris’ death, Vicki issued a statement blaming his suicide on prescription anti-anxiety medication he was taking. “What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details. I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life,” the mother of his two children said. Their lawyer Kirk Pasich added, “The family believes that if Chris took his life, he did not know what he was doing, and that drugs or other substances may have affected his actions.”

Brad Paisley is taking yet another gem out for a drive at Country radio. “Last Time For Everything” (Arista Nashville) is already picking up some big time out-of-the-box adds and it appears this could be his big Spring into Summer hit. Also getting some early activity is the latest from Jake Owen. His new “Good Company” (RCA Nashville) is kicking off in fine fashion and our panel of music and program directors are all over this one. Rounding out this powerhouse trio of Country recording artists is Chris Stapleton. He’s back one again with another monster single in “Either Way” (Mercury Nashville). A most different Country artists that we’ve seen in recent times, Chris has really won the hearts and minds of just about everybody at Country radio. There is no doubt that he deserves all of his recent successes. Tim McGraw and his wife superstar Faith Hill have a good thing going as we all know, Their duet “Speak To A Girl” (Arista Nashville) is fast becoming everybody’s favorite. They are now set for some good live tours and performances for Summer and those crowds should be massive. I’m also really loving the new Jon Pardi single. “Heartache On The Dance Floor” (Capitol Nashville) is one of his best to date and this one appears to have what it takes to go all the way. Jon has displayed some real promise as of late and is fast becoming a must add a Country radio. Josh Turner is back at it and make no mistake about that. We’re falling all over for his new “AllAbout You” (MCANashville) and for good reason, it’s another masterpiece from one of our favorites. Jason Aldean has another winner to hang his hat on. His new “They Don’t Know” (Broken Bow) is fast becoming another amazing single for one of Country radio’s finest. We’ll see how this one plays out in the weeks to come but so far so very good. Drake White continues to build his fortunes at radio. It’s been a bit of a rough go for Drake but his new “Makin’Me Look Good Again” (Dot) keeps him in good rotation on Country stations from coast to coast.All you have to do is ask anyone on our panel about Drake White. .Dan & Shay continue to build fans at the format. Their latest in “How Not To” (WB/WEA) Once again underscores just how good these guys are. Another duo in Al & Trey are building their own following at Country radio. “Anyway” (Tide Productions) is their debut single and this track has had great weeks after weeks and the song is now moving up our Country Top50 by leaps and bounds. It won’t be too long before the entire Country world begins to sing the praises of Al & Trey. Just remember you read and heard about them first right here in this column. Eileen Carey is back with yet another musical gem. “Good Bad Girl” (Rolley Coaster) is her latest and this track is pulling in some rather impressive early week numbers.Also getting some out of the box action is Shari Rowe. Her new “Southern Spells” (Maven Media) is getting lots of attention so you may want to spend a little time with this one to be sure. Peyton Parrish is also getting in on the action. “Country Girl” (Ind) is the one that many of you out there seem to be loving. We’ll see how that plays out in the weeks to come for Peyton. Don Faires seems to be showing up on everybody’s list. His new “Evangeline” (Hologram) is pulling in some rather impressive numbers. You can hear the single right now on the Independent Music Network’s 12th Anniversary Radio Special by going to their website. Bill Kennedy is also making waves at Country radio. “Special Prayer” (Pretty World) is the song that is the new talk of the town. Rachael Turner is also building her fortunes at radio. Her new and tasteful “Hurts Don’t It” (Rustic) is one track that you should pay some special attention to. Zac Brown really put on quite the snow at CRS 2017. We still keep raving and talking about his heartfelt “My Old Man” (Southern Ground/Atlantic) single and many of you at radio seem to agree as this one moves to the top of the charts. Also making more big moves at radio is the new vocal act Midland. CRS proved to be a big jump start for them as their debut single “Drinkin’ Problem” (Big Machine/Universal) moves to higher ground. It’s great to see them take off and we are just thrilled for them. I’ll have more for you on the greatest music from the Country arena net time right there. This is our annual Indie Artists issue so pay special attention to these artists the really deserve your support.

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 26, 2017

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