SUMMER HITS OF 2014 Hot Fun In The Summertime

As long as many of us can remember, the summer always seemed to have those very special musical memories. We’re not really sure why that happens but maybe it’s due to the weather, vacations or that for some reason the music was always just a bit better. So many classic hits from “Summer In The City” to Sly Stones brilliant “Hot Fun In The Summertime”, and numerous iconic songs made you feel good to this very day. Many music acts from Mainstream to Country rely on the summer for their “live” bread and butter shows. From outdoor venues to concerts in the park, most recording artists hit the road and get the chance to play for their fans in large numbers. There again it’s the season when the weather is at its best and many are on vacation from students to the work force in general. The acts play their Summer hits and much more and it becomes a win, win for just about everybody. The record labels also work in conjunction with the artists to help make it all happen. They look at the timeline and can pretty much plan almost a year in advance as to which tracks from a current album will work best for this time of year. Even many of the smarter independents tend to make the right choices when it comes to a summer release. Pick the right track and it could end up making it happen for all the right reasons. You can just see the charts heat up right before the summer tours are starting to happen. The acts have the busses and planes set and ready to hit the road and finally make some cash. When we begin to look back at the Summer of 2014, which songs will stand in your mind as the ones that best represented this time in history? For mainstream radio, recording artist Calvin Harris got a jump on the Summer of 2014 with his “Summer” single. In fact just as the season started, that track was already in the Top10. One song that will no doubt make the list came from the new band Magic. They came out of nowhere with a brilliant song in “Rude” that shot to the top of the charts in record time. Over at the Country format Jake Owen jumped right on in with his “Beachin” and then came Country icon Kenny Chesney to grab a little of the end of Summer with his Jack & Dianne version in “American Kids”. I’m sure you have your own list but these are just a few of the major hits that will no doubt make that list of hits from the Summer of 2014. For artists, bands and labels reading this article, it might be best to start thinking about next Summer. Planning way ahead always makes a huge difference in whether or not the campaign will work. The more preparation the better in trying to win at this kind of large undertaking. Get a bright and solid Summer song recorded in the coming months and then sit on it and be a step ahead of the pack. Please consider New Music Weekly as your partner when you get ready to launch your next release for Summer or for the up and coming Fall and Winter season. We continue to build our station count by leaps and bounds and with our new digital delivery system for the publication we are now reaching huge numbers all around the world. NMW continues to offer the very best “tools of the trade” from tracking to advertising and charts that combine both the major and the independents. Not too many trades are doing that these days. We continue to march strong with our on-going New Music Revolution. In the meanwhile get that nice cold beer or ice tea out of the refrigerator and crank up some of your all-time favorite Summer songs.

“This Is How We Do” is the latest hit single from the amazing Katy Perry. Katy got it all started when she moved to Los Angeles to venture into music. She recorded a collaborative album with the Matrix, which was released in 2009. She also recorded an album with Glen Ballard that was not released due to contractual complications. In April 2007, Perry signed a deal with Capitol Records. She rose to fame in 2008 with the release of the single “I Kissed a Girl” from her second album, One of the Boys. Perry’s third album, Teenage Dream (2010), was preceded by the US Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles “California Gurls” and “Teenage Dream”, and later produced the number-one singles “Firework”, “E.T.”, and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”. The album became the first by a female artist to produce five number-one Billboard Hot 100 songs, and the second overall after Michael Jackson’s Bad (1987). In March 2012, she reissued the album as Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, which produced the number-one single “Part of Me”. Her fourth album, Prism, was released in 2013 and included the number-one singles “Roar” and “Dark Horse”. Perry has received many awards and nominations, and been included in the Forbes list of “Top-Earning Women In Music” for 2011, 2012, and 2013. Throughout her career, she has sold 11 million albums and 81 million singles worldwide, making her one of the best-selling artists of all time. She continues her strong drive by creating hit after hit this summer with singles of her Prism album including “Dark Horse”, “Birthday” and upbeat tracks like “Walking on Air” and “International Smile” We will continue to follow the brilliant Katy Perry story here at New Music Weekly. 3

Pitbull has one of the best songs I’ve heard at Top40 in recent months. He’s teamed up with John Ryan for the cleaver and strong “Fireball” (Mr 305/Polo Grounds Music/RCA) that is really something. If radio gives it a shot and I’m sure they will, this could go all the way. David Guetta has teamed up with Sam Martin and the results are amazing. “Lovers On The Sun” (What A Music/Parlophone/Atlantic) is the latest from this new duo and watch for some big weeks ahead. The Madden Brothers are making quite a stand at the format. Their new “We Are Done” (Capitol) is fast becoming a real favorite among our music and program directors. That can only mean some big things ahead for this band of brothers. Jessie J is back and this time out she’s teamed up with Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj for a single that is pulling in huge numbers. “Bang Bang” (Republic) is the cut that is taking off like a rocket and the phones and research for this one is giving us every indicator that this has #1 potential written all over it. I must admit that I’m really getting into the red hot newcomer Meghan Trainor. Her sudden smash “All About That Bass” (Epic/Sony) is as catchy as they come and once you give it a listen you will be hooked for life. You can bet that this is just the beginning for this bright and powerful new artist. Enrique Iglesias has joined forces with recording artist Descemer Bueno and the results are killer. Radio is going crazy for their new “Bailando” (Universal Republic) and even as it got a slow start, all of the sudden this thing has exploded. The powers that be over at Universal Republic appear to now be all over this one and for good reason. Fences and the brilliant Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are getting some spin action at radio for a new track. The single “Arrow” (Elektra/ WEA) is really something to spend some quality time on. We’ve been getting nothing but raves on it so there must be something to it. Ed Sheeran just keeps pulling rabbits out of his British hat. His new single “Don’t” (Atlantic/WEA) is cranking the spins into power and he appears to have yet another gem on his hands. Katy Perry is back and that should be of no surprise to anyone. “This Is How We Do” (Capitol) is her latest and although it’s off to a slow build don’t let that fool you. Capitol will no doubt be all over it in the coming weeks. Nicki Minaj has a hit in the works and make n mistake about it. “Anaconda” (Cash Money/ Universal Republic) is her latest and this one has some serious leg action. 5 Seconds Of Summer have come onto the scene just as the Summer is getting close to wrapping up. Their new “Amnesia” (Capitol) is excellent and our music and program directors are all over it. Colbie Caillat is back at the format with another strong track. “Try” (Universal Republic) is the new one from this multi-talented lady and watch for some great things ahead for it in the coming weeks. One Republic continue to rock the Top40 world. Their latest “Love Runs Out” (Interscope) is really quite good and they just keep rolling out hit after hit thanks to their multi-talented front man. Bill Curreri is breaking “fast and furious” with his excellent “Son Of An American Dream” (BCM). It pull in big “most added” numbers this week to be sure. Flaunt has joined forces with Justin Jennings and the results are stellar. “Codon” (Anticodon) is the single and take a look at this week’s amazing numbers. Brandy Moss Scott continues to rock the house with her brilliant “Benny & The Jets” (Heavenly Tunes). The Naked Cowgirl aka Sandy Kane is moving past the competition with her smart “I Love Nick” (Sexy). Marsha Jewell continues marvel with “Tomorrow” (Jewel Lane). Kimik X and “Bug Out” (Kaieteur) is the track to keep an eye and ear out for. I’ll be back with more on the Top40 hit train next time my good people.

Mary Lambert is an immense talent and make no mistake about that. Her latest single “Secrets” (Capitol) displays why she is so worth the sudden attention she is receiving. It’s catchy and brilliant in every way and I hope this one takes off for her. So far she is off to a well-deserved stellar start. Christina Perri is another talent that deserves special attention. She’s a brilliant singer/ songwriter and latest release “Burning Gold” (Atlantic/WEA) also deserves your immediate attention. Our favorite male AC artist in Jason Mraz is back to his winning ways. “Love Someone” (Atlantic/WEA) is his new single and it’s another gem from this super talented guy. Clean Bandit has teamed up with Jess Glynne for what is fast becoming the real deal. “Rather Be” (Big Beat/RRP) is breaking at HotAC and Top40, an indicator of a real solid crossover smash. Meghan Trainor is building a huge buzz at the format and for good reason. Her “All About That Bass” (Epic/Sony) is crazy good and this one you can’t seem to get out of your head. Our music and program directors are all over this one big time. This young lady might just have a #1 single for her debut at radio and it’s deserving of any and all of the attention it’s getting from coast to coast. Robert Plant is back and it’s about time. His “Rainbow” (East West) is lighting up the phones every time it gets a spin. Ryan Adams also has a song that might be worth your time and listening power. “Gimme Something Good” (Blue Note/EMC) is very catchy and for fans of this artist they are going to be very happy with the results. Counting Crows are back and what a thrill that is for all of us. “Scarecrow” (Capitol) is the new cut that is getting lots of play from our panel. Are you ready for Kooks? “Bad Habit” (Astralwerks/Virgin) is their jam and this one is worth the spins my friends. Disclosure has teamed up with the brilliant Sam Smith for what could be the song of the year. “Latch”(Cherrytree/Interscope) is so red hot that you can’t touch it. Sam Smith is also red hot so the combination is crazy good. Ingrid Michaelson continues to pull in the spins for the best song of the Summer. “Girls Chase Boys” (Cabin 24) seems to be building at radio even as some move it to re-current. It’s such an stellar production and this artist has some solid staying power. We’ll see how it all play out in the remaining weeks of Summer. Recording artist Bill Curreri is exploding at the format with a brilliant single. “Son Of An American Dream” (BCM) is his debut track from an album of the same name. The single has ranked at the top of the “most added” for several weeks and is now moving up the charts at record speed. For those of you that are not on it – what are you waiting for? MacLear & Waters have a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Someday” (Meg) is their latest and greatest and radio loves it. Chakra Bleu is also on the move in a big way with the brilliant and powerful “The Shadow” (1746). Flaunt has teamed up with recording artist Justin Jennings for a brilliant offering. “Codon” (Anticodon) is the track that is setting the world on fire. All you have to do is look at this week’s chart activity to see how amazing this is being received. Brandy Moss Scott and her rendition of the classic Elton John song “Benny & The Jets” (Heavenly Tunes) is moving by leaps and bounds. The Naked Cowgirl aka Sandy Kane is breaking fast with “I Love Nick” (Sexy) and radio loves it. Marsha Jewell continues her winning ways as “Tomorrow” (Jewel Lane) moves to the top of the pack. Giulia Nahmany remains amazing with her “Girl To Change Your World”. I’ll have more for you on the greatest hits of AC next time right here my good friends.

Dream Wrangler Meredith Day Introduces Teen Singer Autumn Sky Wolfe For decades Talent Scout and Developer Meredith Day has been well known for having great ÒEarsÓ. She discusses some favorite projects including her newest Teen Singer: IÕve been blessed with great projects including Animal Bag, Margo Harshman, Adrianna Le—n and Halfway Band. My job is to hear their dreams and put them on a path to achieve it. Each project is different. I provide the tools, enabling them for success. Animal Bag came to LA to get signed at the tail end of the glam band era. Commonly selling bars out of beer with all originals in their hometown of Charlotte NC, they couldnÕt get a gig in Hollywood due to Òlack of imageÓ. Their talent and music completely blew me away and I took them on. I put them up over the radar and they were signed to Steve Moir Music Management and Mercury Polygram Records. Margo Harshman dreamed of acting. I developed her, and she debuted as Shia LabeoufÕs girlfriend ÒTawny DeanÓ on DisneyÕs ÒEven StevensÓ. SheÕs seen on ÒBig Bang TheoryÓ and the upcoming ÒMentryvilleÓ. She records and regularly performs her original music with Loren Frost. Adrianna (AKA Adrianne) Le—nÕs big dream was to be Òon a soapÓ. I found her scouting David and Ann SchulzÕs Star Theatre Company in Oceanside Ca. Same place I discovered Margo. I helped Adrianna place her music on ÒGeneral HospitalÓ which led to her Emmy Nominated role of Brook Lynn Ashton and then Colleen Carlton on ÒThe Young And The RestlessÓ as well as her own music project ÒCaught CrimsonÓ. I heard ÒHalfway BandÓ AKA ÒHalfway DecentÓ music in a gas station in Orange County. They were already making great money playing biker bars and Òkegger partiesÓ. After development the band won 4th place over 400 bands in KROQÕs 2012 CaboWabo Band Competition with their great original song ÒThe BirdÓ. Currently they are getting ready for their 3rd summer DIY tour. Their video ÒAbstract ArtÓ won Best YouTube.com 3D Video in 2012. They are currently interviewing sponsors for their 2014 tour. Teen singer Autumn Sky Wolfe has been my most amazing find to date. I overheard her singing in a hallway, a raw voice with tons of wonderful potential. I took her on. I felt she could be a significant performer. She reminded me of myself at her age. Big dreams. Autumn has a silver bullet that is very rare in live performers. She has ABSOLUTELY NO STAGE FRIGHT. I have seen her perform shows when everything was crashing around her and she doesnÕt miss a beat. Amazing. Autumn has released her first DIY single and EP titled ÒFire And IceÓ, currently available on iTunes etcÉ romantic POP Ballads. The cd includes a wonderful duet with Lenny KravitzÕs drummer Franklin Vanderbilt, ÒComplicated EyesÓ. I feel Autumn should be a real inspiration to any kid with a big dream! We are shopping for more original music for Autumn. For Info. contact Meredith Day through www.NationalTalentDevelopment.com ����������������������������������� NMW - AUGUST 22, 2014

ALL ROADS

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

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

MUSIC BIZ Taylor Swift Announces Pop Album For those who feel Taylor Swift’s music isn’t really country, this time around, the singer tends to agree. “This is my very first official, documented pop album,” Swift said during a Monday live stream announcing her fifth record, 1989. The singer, 24, revealed that the late ‘80s served as inspiration for the album, due out Oct. 27 – even though she was only alive for one year of the decade. “I loved the chances they were taking,” said Swift of the era. “It was apparently a time of limitless potential ... The idea of that was so inspiring to me.” To debut her next single, “Shake It Off,” Swift started an impromptu dance party, along with the video for the tune. With the lyrics, “I go on too many dates / But I can’t make them stay / That’s what people say,” it sounds like another sure hit, ripped right from Swift’s personal life. “The idea I came up with … I had to learn a pretty tough lesson in the past couple of years, that people can say anything they want about us at any time and we cannot control it,” she explains. “You can descend into insanity over it if you want. Option two is you can just shake it off.”

Madonna Parties With Moss

Madonna frolicked with Kate Moss at her 56th birthday party. The original queen of pop chose a flapper girl theme for her Saturday celebration, showing the younger stars in music she’s still got it. Wearing a beaded mini dress, matching head band and stockings, Madonna uploaded a photo to her Instagram account where she draped herself over British clothes horse Kate. “Bow down B***hes! #whatitfeelslikeforagirl (sic),” she captioned the photo, in reference to her 2000 hit. As well as A-list stars, Madonna was also surrounded by family. Her adopted son David, eight, looked dapper in a top hat and tails and acted as his mother’s plus one for the bash. “My escort for the evening! #swag #boom #livingforlove (sic)” Madonna captioned a shot of a pouting David. The lavish party was held in Cannes, France, with everyone in attendance making a huge effort with their costumes. One photo from the evening shows the Material Girl singer flanked by two friends - one topless, with multiple strings of pearls hanging from her neck as she smoulders into the camera. There was a giant M on display, which lit up giving friends a chance to pose in front of it. Feathers, sharp suits and stockings and suspenders adorned many of the guests, who included DSquared2 fashion designers Dean and Dan Caten. Madonna further teased fans with an old shot of herself, wearing nothing but a pair of long lace gloves. The photo from the ‘80s came at the height of Madonna’s fame, when NMW - AUGUST 22, 2014

she channelled glamour from a bygone era with a bleached blonde hairstyle and thick brows. “In my Birthday suit! The girl cant help it! Thanks for all your good wishes!!!! ??#grateful #livingforlove (sic),” she cheekily captioned the snap.

Sheeran ‘bagged best man spot

Ed Sheeran is reportedly in the running to be best man at Courteney Cox’s wedding. The British singer is great pals with the former Friends star and even introduced her to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, who she is now engaged to. The couple are said to be planning to tie the knot in Johnny’s native Ireland later this year, with Ed apparently bagging a vital row in proceedings. “Not only is Ed great mates with Johnny, he is a close friend of Courteney’s,” an insider told British newspaper The Sun. ‘Ed said yes immediately when asked. Johnny’s other best pal, singer Foy Vance, is also an usher. ‘It’s between him and Ed for best man - they’ll probably share it.” Ed has stayed with Courteney at her home in Malibu and has also spent time with Johnny in Ireland in the past. The couple recently travelled to the Emerald Isle and were seen shopping for rings in Derry, which is where he hails from. As well as picking up some jewellery the couple are also thought to have checked out wedding venues, adding fuel to speculation they will exchange vows sooner rather than later. This will be Courteney’s second trip down the aisle - she was previously wed to actor David Arquette, who she has daughter Coco with. “She has never been happier,” the source explained. ‘And even though it’s her second marriage, she would like people important to her to be there.” Although the 50-year-old actress and 38-year-old musician are exchanging vows in Ireland, they will also celebrate their nuptials Stateside. Apparently they will hold a big party in Malibu to mark becoming Mr and Mrs. Ed confirmed he had played matchmaker to Courteney and Johnny late last year, admitting he was thrilled to see them getting on so well. ‘I wasn’t allowed to talk about this, actually, but it’s just gone public. My housemate, who I’ve lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox,’ he told OMG. ‘They started dating and are crazy about each other and I ended up spending a lot of time living in her beach house and therefore bumping into all these random people. We spent Thanksgiving eve at Jennifer [Aniston]’s and Thanksgiving day at Courteney’s.”

Beyoncé Channels Sinatra

Beyoncé channels Nancy Sinatra in the new teaser for her On The Run Tour special. The singer and husband Jay Z have been on the road performing their joint tour while simultaneously rehearsing for the TV event on HBO. In a new clip for

Vol. 16 Issue 6

the extravaganza released this weekend, the pop star is shown singing Nancy’s Sinatra’s melancholy version of the 1966 hit. The black-and-white video features Beyoncé wearing a gown as she croons on stage while Jay sits in the audience looking on as he puffs on a cigar. HBO has scheduled the premiere of the On The Run Tour special for September 20. MTV News reports the show will take from the couple’s final performances in Paris, scheduled for September 12 and 13. The concert series has been marred by controversy for months, stemming from rumours Bey and Jay are on the rocks. Earlier this month, reports claimed the songstress was fighting back tears while performing in Los Angeles as she belted out her track Resentment to an arena full of fans. ‘She looked like she had been crying from the time the concert began,’ an alleged concertgoer told Radar Online. ‘Her eyes were really glassy and red, and it looked like she was just going through the motions on stage.’ The performance followed on the heels of reports things have become so bad between the pair they are staying in separate hotels while on tour. While the couple have yet to comment on the rumours, Beyoncé all but shut them down with a series of posts of her family on social media. A photo posted earlier this month showed Jay Z holding their daughter Blue Ivy as the family prepared to board a private jet. ‘Thank you San Fran! Your city is beautiful. It was the perfect place to complete the best tour of my life! Thank you to all the fans that supported our show. God bless,’ she wrote.

Rimes Talks ‘Airport Hell’

LeAnn Rimes was apparently put through ‘living hell’ at the airport this weekend. The 31-year-old country music singer, who’s scheduled to launch her upcoming tour in Snoqualmie, Washington this week, hit a travel snag when her bags appeared to get lost in transit. And LeAnn made sure to share her frustration with fans on Twitter Sunday. ‘OMG living hell at the airport. It’s too early for this,’ she wrote her 557,000 followers, musing: ‘It’s 50/50 if my bags get there or not @cltpride #goingnaked #sundayfunday lol.’ LeAnn is scheduled to play throughout the US until midDecember, according to her website. And while travelling may have its pitfalls, the Mississippi-born star recently admitted performing in so many different cities has helped to open her mind. ‘I have so much that I’ve been influenced by from travelling the world. I’m really kind of a mutt. When I get around my mum and my southern friends, I start to get an accent again. I can totally be redneck with the best of them, and I can be totally as posh as possible,’ she told Fox411. LeAnn has meanwhile been focused on her reality show with husband Eddie Cibrian. The

couple, who began seeing each other while they were still married to their former spouses, attempt to clear the air about their relationship in VH1’s LeAnn & Eddie. And the country star insists the project isn’t meant to ‘fire back’ at Eddie’s outspoken ex, Brandi Glanville. Instead, they simply want to have a good time and show viewers they’re not so uptight. ‘I think people think we take ourselves super seriously and we don’t at all,’ she told E! News last month, adding she hopes the show will help her and Eddie ‘take our life back and have fun with our story and where we are now’.

Bieber’s Ice Bucket Challenge

Justin Bieber is daring his fans to take the so-called ‘ice bucket challenge’. The 20-year-old pop star is the latest in a long line of celebrities to join in the shiver-inducing viral video campaign to raise funds and awareness for neurodegenerative disease ALS. Justin posted two videos online Sunday showing himself tossing a bucket of ice-cold water over his head before challenging his fans around the world to do the same. ‘Alright, second ice bucket challenge today,’ he says in the clip. ‘I nominate my Beliebers all over the world. I know you guys got an ice bucket somewhere,’ Justin dares before splashing the frigid H2O over his head. ‘Accept? U have 24 hours #beliebers or u can donate to ALS here. #alsicebucketchallenge #giveback :) (sic),’ the singer then wrote on his social media pages, including a link to the official ALS website. The video followed another in which Justin nominated friend Ellen DeGeneres and US President Barack Obama. ‘I accept, now I nominate @Theellenshow my main man President Barack Obama and @chrisdelia #alsicebucketchallenge,’ he captioned another Instagram video of himself trying to catch his breath after throwing the water over his head. It didn’t take long for Justin’s fans to follow suit. The pop star, who was challenged by manager Scooter Braun to take the plunge, had re-tweeted several fan videos within minutes of posting his own.

Courtney Love You Know My Name Tour

Whether you love or hate her, there is no denying that Courtney Love is hypnotic on stage. Opening with Wedding Day at Festival Hall in Melbourne, on her ‘You Know My Name’ tour, Love delivered exactly what the audience were anticipating – feistiness, coupled with her unique gravely voice. She may be in the tabloids for all the wrong reasons but you have to admire her style as she refuses to be phony. Regardless of public opinion, Love remains true to herself - a quality I find utterly refreshing in a business filled with fake wannabes. Love 21

Warner Bros. Records’ Charlie Worsham impressed the packed house at the third installment of Pickin’ On The Patio 2014 recently.

launched into the eagerly anticipated Miss World followed by Plump from her 1994 “Live Through This” album. The audience were on fire and without holding back Love let her fans know she liked them too. “I’ll be honest, I like Melbourne better than Sydney. It’s just cooler.” And with that, the crowd were yet again whipped into frenzy. It’s been 15 years since Love performed in Australia and although she is now 50, she still possesses the youthfulness of her past. Dressed in lingerie and knee high boots, the musician embodies a true rock star. Sure I may be biased as I grew up listening to Hole in the 1990’s but Love still has it. Performing Gold Dust Woman by Fleetwood Mac, Love prefaced her performance by stating, “This is me doing Stevie, she gave me permission.” Love performed all the favourites, including Malibu, Rock Star, Celebrity Skin, Violet and Olympia. “This song (Olympia) took me 3 minutes to write some time in the early 90’s but you still like it. I don’t know why but were going to play it”. The encore included Northern Star, Petals and Doll Parts and saw Love handing out roses to the waiting crowd. She may have made some scathing remarks to some audience members along the way but that is the Courtney we’ve come to know and love. Love took to the microphone for the last time and said, “Thank you – you have been a great fu#k%ng audience, seriously!” And with that, Love exited the stage. Overall, an amazing performance by a woman who doesn’t hold back and says it like it is.

Mel B: Make my songs better!

Mel B always hopes people will sing her songs better than she did. The star began her career as part of girlband the Spice Girls alongside Victoria Beckham, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell. She’s now putting her expertise to good use as a judge on the upcoming series of The X Factor UK and America’s Got Talent. Mel loves it when contestants belt out songs by her former band but hopes they will bring something new to the table. “It’s kind of funny. We had one yesterday actually and he was a really good singer,” she smiled to the British edition of OK! magazine. “I think he sang Say You’ll Be There. You kind of hope it will be better than the way you did it. I always like it when they put a twist on your song and you go, ‘Ahh, that’s good.’” As well as coping with her hectic career, Mel raises three children. The star, who is married to Stephen Belafonte, says it’s nothing unusual for her to be busy. “I haven’t got a lot on my plate,” she laughed. “I’m always doing everything. If you’ve known me and my life and my work ethic, I always like to keep a

bunch of things happening. Whatever I do, I do it 100 per cent anyway.” Also sitting on The X Factor UK’s judging panel is former Girls Aloud member Cheryl Cole. Mel added that she’d be up for a Spice Girls and Girls Aloud medley while on the show.

Christina Aguilera ‘gives birth’

Christina Aguilera has reportedly given birth to a daughter. The 33year-old singer and her fiancé Matt Rutler, who she became engaged to in January, welcomed their first child together yesterday, Us Weekly reports. It is thought Christina gave birth at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles via C-section. This is Christina’s second child, being a mother to six-year-old son Max from her previous marriage to Jordan Bratman. She and her former spouse tied the knot in 2005 and had their divorce finalised in April 2011. News of her second pregnancy broke in February, and it was confirmed in March that she and Matt were expecting a little girl. Christina shared how confident she felt during pregnancy at the beginning of the month, posing naked for V magazine. “As a woman, I’m proud to embrace my body through all stages of life, staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store,” she explained to the publication. Last month the musician threw a lavish baby shower and dazzled in a gorgeous maxi dress alongside Matt. Her female pals are said to have enjoyed pink champagne and tucked into a humorous cake with the print of a woman giving birth on it. “It was very romantic with candles everywhere,” an insider previously revealed. “Christina looked so happy and excited.”

Aerosmith Continue Tour

Aerosmith are back full force tonight in George, Washington as they resume their Let Rock Rule Tour with Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. A scheduled show on Wednesday in Concord, CA was cancelled at the last minute when drummer Joey Kramer had an undisclosed medical problem. It had been suggest from sources that it had something to do with his heart but that was never confirmed. A publicist for the band has said “He has no history of a heart condition” although they did not elaborate on the actual reason for the cancellation. It is known that Kramer had a minor medical procedure and he has since released a statement saying “I’m feeling better than ever and I’ll be back sitting in the best seat in the house, hitting it harder than ever for our amazing fans. My gratitude and thanks

Nikki Sixx Responds To Gene Simmons’ Apology

Demi Lovato is calling on fans to help her score a MTV Video Music Award. The 21-year-old pop star featured her legion of followers, dubbed Lovatics, in the music video for her upbeat single Really Don’t Care. The clip earned her a nomination for Best Lyric Video at the August 24 ceremony. But facing stiff competition from 5 Seconds of Summer, Katy Perry and Ariana Grande in the new sociallyvoted category, the star took to Twitter at the weekend to urge her 23.9 million followers to vote. ‘Brazilian Lovatics - you’re staring in my lyric video!!!! Wanna win a VMA with me?!! #votedemilovato,’ she tweeted. Demi released the video for Really Don’t Care back in May. The three-and-a-half minute clip, which also celebrated the one-year anniversary of the release of her self-titled fourth album, featured fans lip-synching and dancing to the track, and some getting the shock of their lives as she surprised them while joining in the fun. The track also features British songstress Cher Lloyd. Demi spoke to MTV News last year about collaborating with the singer, admitting it took a family effort to make the collaboration happen. ‘Well first of all, my mum loves Cher Lloyd and my little sister loves Cher Lloyd. And I love her too,’ Demi said at the time ‘She has so much sass and attitude. They were really wanting me to do a duet with her. And so I was thinking, ‘Who else would be more fun to do a collaboration with than a powerful, sassy, attitudefilled girl?’ And there’s just nobody else out there. She fit perfectly on that song.’ The MTV Video Music Awards will be held in Los Angeles, California.

Nikki Sixx has taken the time to write a lengthy statement on his Facebook page to compliment Gene Simmons on his apology over the depression/suicide comments and to inform the public of some facts on the subject. I wanted to take a moment to address the media thats been picked up by media around Gene Simmons comments telling depressed people to kill themselves. I also want to address and compliment Gene for publicly apologizing. That was 100% the right thing to do. This has turned into a bit of an anti-Gene Simmons bashathon and I don’t condone that nor do I support that radio stations across the country who are banning Kiss (the guys in the band didn’t do anything). Gene said something that has been addressed and maybe in a moment of bravado he was just being cocksure and pompous? Out of everything in my life that’s has gone array either from my own action’s or others I try to learn a lesson. There is good in everything. What I know is this. When people are listening we have an opportunity to pass along some valuable and positive information. Since I have had my own struggle with addiction and depression I have been exposed to both sides of the process. Its not as simple as we are lowly addicts or morally incapable of pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps, doing the right thing or just snapping out of it. The process involves hard work and hopefully some form of a support team (family, friends etc) around you. That could mean therapy, rehab, 12 step programs or sometimeseven medication. It’s better than the alternative. Trust me.. So here are some stats I pulled for the uneducated and for anybody needing to know you’re not alone. Thanks for being proactive in bringing awareness..Nikki

Spurred by a promising first half of the year, NAMM members rolled into Nashville’s Music City Center this past month ready to find new ways to grow. With increased buying power, a bigger show footprint, and live music performances, the largest Summer NAMM in six years generated optimism throughout the music industry. Increases in international attendance and progressive educational offerings rounded out the up-tempo vibe.

Rick Parashar, the producer of Pearl Jam ‘Ten’, Bon Jovi ‘Have A Nice Day’ and Alex Lloyd’s selftitled album, has died at the age of 50. According to the King County Medical Examiner Parashar’s died of natural causes. The coroner stated that Rick suffered a pulmonary embolism in his lower extremities. He died from a blood clot that started in his leg and travelled to his heart. One of Parashar’s works was for Melbourne band Juke Cartel, the band featuring Toby Rand.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Debate Next Producer

Red Hot Chili Peppers are about 30 songs into their next album and are still yet to bring in a producer. Could this mark the first Red Hot Chili Peppers without Rick Rubin in 23 years? Rubin produced the 1991 classic ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’ and every Red Hot Chili Peppers record since. Guitarist Josh Klinghoffer joined Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2009 and featured on their last album ‘I’m With You’ (2011). He says the band has been busy in the studio and well down the track of recording the next record despite not having a producer just yet. ‘The Chili Peppers are working every day writing,’ Klinghoffer tells Noise11.com. ‘We have produced a more elaborate demo

SoCal experimental metal group CHRYSALIS are unleashing their brand new music video for the track ‘My Forsaken’, cut from their new album Focus On The Center. The music video is being simultaneously premiered via Revolver Magazine and Metal Hammer Magazine today. Take a look at the video here via Revolver, but make sure to have your holy bibles and crosses handy – the music video features the performance of a true-to-life exorcism. stage into the writing, at least more than the band has before. Flea owns a really great studio now. I’ve been recording and writing with the Chili Peppers every day’. That elaborate demo has generated around 30 songs to date. ‘We’ve written musically 30 songs now,’ he says. ‘We sort of did this last time, which was my first album. We piled a shitload of stuff on Anthony and he actually came through. He wrote lyrics to 50 songs in the end. We recorded 50 last time. We released an extra 17 that didn’t go on the album. We are conscious to not do that again but we are already up to 28 or 30 songs’. Normally former producer Rick Rubin would be working with the band by this stage but he has yet to walk through the studio door leading us to speculate that Red Hot Chili Peppers may have an alternative to Rubin for the first time in two decades. ‘Yeah, yeah, well . that’s not even 100% official yet,’ Klinghoffer says. ‘That is sort of up in the air still. Normally he becomes involved in the arranging process but he hasn’t yet been which is good for me. I like it the way we are doing it so far. There has not been an official producer named yet so in the absence of that you never know what could happen’. While Red Hot Chili Peppers continue working on the next album Klinghoffer will release two albums this year with his other band Dot Hacker. ‘How’s Your Process (Work)’ is out now. ‘How’s Your Process (Play) will be released in October.

Mariah and Nick’s ‘divorce is go’

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s rumoured split apparently stems from comments he made about past lovers. Rumours the couple’s relationship is on the rocks have been swirling for the past few weeks and NMW - AUGUST 22, 2014

TMZ is now claiming they actually broke up in May. The website reports divorce lawyers have been negotiating a property settlement and custody agreement for the past few months and the divorce is “a done deal”. The pair are reportedly living apart and it’s believed an incident in March is what kicked things off. Nick, 33, appeared on Big Boy’s radio show that month and agreed to share the names of five celebrities he’s slept with. Among them he mentioned Kim Kardashian, which is thought to have incensed 44-year-old Mariah. It’s believed arguments ensued and that their relationship “never recovered”. Later that month Nick appeared on Howard Stern’s chat show, where he revealed Mariah made him wait for sex until after the wedding. It’s believed these comments angered his superstar wife even further. Mariah and the actor have three-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe together and another factor is reportedly that the singer worries Nick spends too much time away from them because of work. TMZ adds that Nick apparently can’t handle the fact his wife is allegedly “surrounded by yes men”. The star has previously admitted his comments about past flames may have been inappropriate. “’I thought I was being coy and cunning by naming someone or people that I actually was in a relationship with,” he told Australian radio station 2Day FM. “The world knew these, these weren’t like names that, you know, I pulled out of a hat ‘ these are people you’ve seen me on red carpets with, engaged, in love and all of that stuff, so wasn’t like it was new information. “You know sometimes, as my wife says, sometimes I should just keep my big mouth shut.” Mariah and Nick met on the set of her music video for Bye Bye and married in 2008.

Thomas Rhett has made quite the name for himself at Country radio. He’s now getting additional love and respect for his new single “Make Me Wanna” (Big Machine/Universal) that should build his already hot stock even further. Chris Young appears to be on the verge of having another hit single. “Lonely Eyes” (RCA Nashville) is another gem from this multi-talented Country recording artist and this one deserves your immediate attention. You can’t get any hotter than Cole Swindell. He seems to be on everybody’s Top10 list and for good reason. His “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” (Warner Music Nashville) is just what we are talking about. Those Florida Georgia Line boys keep rolling in the money and in the hits. Their latest offering in “Dirt” (Republic Nashville) keeps these boys ahead of the pack to be sure. I really like the new Jake Owen’s track. “What We Ain’t Got” (RCA Nashville) is the one we’re talking about but we’ll see what the RCA Nashville people are up to with this one. Rising star Jerrod Niemann is a real favorite among our music and program directors. They all just can’t see to get enough of “Buzz Back Girl” (Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville). We’ll see how this one plays out in the weeks to come but so far so good. Brett Eldredge is most certainly a great rising star. He’s pulling in votes and calls by the droves for his new “Mean To Me” (Atlantic Nashville). You may want to pay some very special attention to this one in the weeks to come. Chase Bryant has got a good thing going now at Country radio. He brings it all up a few notches with the single “Take It Back” (Red Bow/Sony) and radio appears to be loving this one. We have mentioned great things about this new rising star here at New Music Weekly and we are proud to be one of the first trade publications to sing his praises. John King is no doubt a talent to be considered. Many of you out there are raving about the track “Tonight Tonight” (Black River) and for good reason, it’s just solid Country. I have to put in a good word regarding Tyler Farr (although he really doesn’t need one). His single entitled “A Guy Walks Into A Bar” (Columbia Nashville) is just too cool for school. I hope that radio gives it a fair shake and puts some welldeserved spins action behind this very cleaver and well written song. Maddie & Tae have come up with a very cleaver song and it’s paying off in leaps and bounds. “Girl In A Country Song” (Dot) is really cleaver and so is the video. These two gals are getting raves reviews from social media and these days that’s what it’s all about. Check them out on You-Tube. Sam Austin is making a great name for himself at Country radio. “When She Does It” (Plateau) is his latest single and our panel of music and program directors are all giving this one a big thumbs up. Recording artist Da Cole has a lot to rave about. His new and red hot “Red Light Green Light” (Durango Music) is excellent and this one should be on the top of your list. Kenny Chesney is making the most of the end of Summer with a wild-fire hit single. His current “American Kids” (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville) might be a little rip on Jack & Dianne but who cares, it’s excellent. Rascal Flatts are rocking strong and make no mistake about that. Their new “Payback” (Big Machine/Universal) is just what the doctor ordered. Keith Urban has another gem on his hands. “Somewhere In My Car” (Capitol Nashville) the follow-up to “Cop Car” is his latest and greatest. He comes to Los Angeles this week and to other parts of the USA for some great live shows. Luke Bryan is on the fast track once again. He’s pulling in huge numbers for his current “Roller Coaster” (Capitol Nashville) and should we be surprised. Have a great rest of the Summer of 2014 my friends.

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 - AUGUST 22, 2014

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

The 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.
