From the Editor’s Desk It’s Our Year End &

Nominations Issue

Coming to the end of a year is always bittersweet. It’s an accomplishment of sorts just to get through it yet there is a sadness that we leave another one behind. This has been a tough year for many. Our financial woes continue, we had a presidential election that tore many people apart and now we are in the grasp of this “financial cliff” that has to worry us a bit. Through it all we “have our music”. It’s the one thing that is the bright spot in our lives. Whether it’s creating it or promoting it or simply listening, it’s the one escape that many of us have in life. Regardless of where the next year or year’s take us, we will always have this bright spot to lean on and to get us through any storm we may encounter. It’s also that time of year when we celebrate and acknowledge the major and independent artists that made an impact on our charts here at New Music Weekly. So much good music seemed to come out of nowhere, most by many artists we had never heard of before. There were some surprises of artists coming back into the picture, bringing us their new and updated sound, along with new young fresh talent that is most certain to be around for quite some time. This is also that time of year through our New Music Awards, to highlight the many talented people in our industry. We are so very proud to be nominating the talented music and program directors and their radio stations. They are the real unsung heroes in all of this, as many of them have broken ranks to pick and play music from new and unproven artists. There is no group more supportive of new artists than the stations and programmers that report religiously each and every week to our publication. Many of them have taken on additional jobs just to keep their love for programming alive and for that we salute each and every one of them. We all know that trying to break an artist or band is no easy task. It requires a team to assist in the promotion and publicity efforts. So it is also with pleasure that we send or kudos to those hard working promotion and publicity folks. New Music Weekly has a small army of promoters and publicists that use our publication as their sole “tool of the trade”. They see to it that artists get their fair shot and believe us, that if we miss a beat or a few spins from time to time we will hear from them. The amount of press releases sent to us each and every week could fill a football stadium, and although there is no possible way to use all of this material, some of it makes the cut. It is indicative of just how hard these people work at their craft each and every day. In addition to this very special nomination issue, this is also our official Future Hits launch as well. Although many of you have received advance copies and digital services, some will be getting a copy of this for the first time. To our radio programmers, please listen to this offering very carefully. As in the past, you have been brilliant in picking the tracks that best fir your format and we know you will do the same once again. There is a solid representation of formats and even tracks that will fit in with the holiday spirit. To our reporters, subscribers and even just our followers, we say “thank you”. Not so long ago we started our little “new music revolution” and you took to it, embraced it and helped turn it into something quite amazing. We will continue to offer the “tools of the trade” and if we fail at times, we will get back up and try to make it all much better. Have a very Merry Christmas, a spectacular New Year’s and we’ll see you back here in 2013.

In a story about “Mr. Know It All” — the first single off Kelly Clarkson’s album Stronger. Indeed Clarkson has earned herself millions of devoted fans thanks to her feisty, straight-talking lyrics. Clarkson’s hits such as “Miss Independent,” “Since U Been Gone,” “Walk Away,” “Never Again,” and now “Mr. Know It All,” are bold empowerment anthems, which she sells to the fullest with her soulful, powerhouse voice and down-to-earth relatability. The vibrant, musically diverse Stronger (which Clarkson says was influenced by Tina Turner, Prince, Sheryl Crow, and Radiohead) will thrill those who love Clarkson for her resilience. The album is filled with candid, emotionally raw tunes like “The War Is Over,” “Darkside,” and “Honestly,” as well as “You Love Me” (in which Clarkson witheringly tells an ex “you’re not good enough”), “Einstein” (the cad in question is dismissed with “Here’s your keys, your bags, your clothes, and now get out of my place”), and the title track, which finds Clarkson putting a fresh spin on Nietzsche’s adage that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and declaring “it doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone.” That fact that these gutsy sentiments are wrapped in fizzy pop melodies, bright choruses, and driving dancefloor-friendly beats (crafted by such A-list producers as Rodney Jerkins, Greg Kurstin, Josh Abraham, and Toby Gad) only makes them that much more appealing. Clarkson’s life has had its share of challenges. Her parents divorced when she was six and her mother struggled financially to raise Kelly and her older siblings. “I figured I’d get to sing and make some money to pay the bills. Nobody thought that show was going to be what it is now.” Of course Clarkson won and went on to become an international pop icon, selling over 20 million albums worldwide (including 10 million in the U.S.) and notching seven singles on the Top 10 on the NMW chart. 3

Top40 radio can’t get any hotter when you combine the talents of Ludacris and Usher. Together they make beautiful music with the help of super mixer/producer David Guetta as the single “Rest Of My Life” (IDJMG) racks in some major action. If you think that’s good how about the new Taylor Swift single. Just when you thought she may have peaked, forget about it. Her new “I Knew You Were Trouble” (Big Machine/Universal) is the fastest rising Top40 hit for her ever! Enrique Iglesias is always about teaming up with artists these days. This time out he takes Sammy Adams out for the ride with “Finally Found You” (Republic). No female artist is “on fire” more than Alicia Keys. So much so that her “Girl On Fire” (RCA/RLG) single displays just what we are talking about. It’s already used in a television commercial and movies are lining up to use it as well. You know she’s doing well when they are even pitching the song and CD over at Starbucks. The Rolling Stones are back at Top40 radio and don’t you ever forget about them. Is it appropriate that the single is called “Doom And Gloom” (ABKCO/ Interscope)? Nicki Minaj is so red hot at the format that you can barely touch her. She takes the single entitled “Va Va Voom” (Universal Republic) for a spin and the results are pretty solid for her. One of our favorite bands in Train is back with a winner. “Mermaid” (Columbia/Sony) is the song that is getting rave reviews. Also getting some stellar reviews is Apostle J Dancy. His debut single entitled “Soon” (Predestined International) moves him alongside some pretty big names in the music industry. Look for a very bright future ahead for the multitalented Apostle J Dancy and remember that you heard about him first right here. Cher Lloyd is another artist that has a lot going for her. She has now teamed up with rapper Becky G for the single “Oath” (Epic/Sony) and it’s getting solid reviews from our music and program directors. Justin Bieber is back with the help of Nicki Minaj (like he needs any help) for the single “Beauty And A Beat” (IDJMG). This kid could really go places if he could just get more exposure. Beyonce is back once again and that must mean that her hubby wants her out of the house. “Dance For You” (Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia) is the cut that is getting some solid play. Pitbull keeps his quest to take over the format “alive and well”. This time out he’s working his TF magic with TJR. The end result is the single entitled “Don’t Stop The Party” (Mr 305/Polo Grounds Music/RCA) that really made an impact on our “most added” list for several weeks running. Recording artist Ne Yo, who can also add record executive to his title, is still pulling in hit after hit. That master does it again with the single “Let Me Love You” (IDJMG) that seems to be everywhere. Kanye West is also getting additional attention at Top40 radio. Many of our programmers can’t seem to get enough of the single “Clique” (DefJam/IDJMG) so keep your eyes and ears open for this puppy. Rihanna continues to rock the format with another gem. We’d have to be talking about “Diamonds” (IDJMG) and don’t you know that. Hedley keeps rocking the free music world. The single “Kiss You Inside Out” (Universal/ UMG) continues to amaze all of us. Good pal and NMW fan Bruno Mars is also hot as can be. He’s still getting raves for the current track entitled “Locked Out Of Heaven” (Atlantic/WEA). Outasight is keeping a good pace on many radio playlists. The single “Now Or Never” (WB/WEA) is the “one to watch”. In case you haven’t noticed, this is also our Nomination Issue. There are a good many major as well as independent music artists that made the list. Sammy Hakim is one for that as the single “Mark Me” (EXT) moves into overdrive with a record weeks at #1. Marsha Jewell has a few honorable mentions just as her new “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane) takes flight. Steve Northeast pulls in some as well thanks to his strong “Sand and Stone” (Tidal) single. Newcomer Greg Merritt also gets well deserved attention thanks to his debut single “Trying To Get Through” (Azure Forrest). This is also our Future Hits issue so that means you are getting a CD in the mail with some of the best new artists on the planet. Check it out people and I’ll see you back here…next year!

No band is hotter at the AC40 format than Maroon 5. It may also help that lead vocalist Adam Levine has such a huge profile on “The Voice” (NBC) which has become a massive television ratings hit. Regardless, their new single “Daylight” (Octone/A&M) can be added to their very large list of radio smashes. Speaking of The “Voice”, recording artist Vicci Martinez is getting lots of love at the format for the single “Come Along” (Ind) and that should be of no surprise to anyone. The band Passion Pit is taking flight at the AC40 format and make no mistake about that. “Take A Walk” (Columbia/Sony) is the gem that many of you are raving about. We’ll see how that all comes to pass in the weeks ahead, but so far so very good for this outfit. The chart action once again will “tell the tale”. Rihanna continues to amaze us as she crosses multiple formats. Her latest offering in the single “Diamonds” (IDJMG) showcases her vocals and really let’s listeners and programmers alike know why she is such the “real deal”. Newcomer Carly Rae Jepsen is having one amazing year. She lights up the music charts once again with the stunning and wonderful “This Kiss” (School Boy/Interscope). The real showstopper can be found as Adele continues her “Hit list”. She can now add another amazing chapter as the new Bond vocalist as “Skyfall” (Sony) takes off with some power numbers. I saw the flick a few weeks ago and thought the singer sounded familiar. Good for her and well deserved. Pink just keeps the singles mounting one after another. Her latest track in the song called “Try” (RCA/RLG) actually has to be one of her best to date if that is even possible. Our AC program and music directors are all over this one “big time”. Matchbox 20 is back with another single at radio and that’s always a good thing. “Overjoyed” (Emblem/ Atlantic) is their latest and it’s nice to hear them once again on the radio. One artist that is always getting airplay is the multi-talented Kelly Clarkson. She’s come a long distance since her American Idol win and can add “Catch My Breath” (RCA/RLG) to her long list of radio Hits. Neon Trees continues to be the surprise of the year. Their latest in the single “Lessons In Love” (Island/UMG) moves them to an even higher ranking. Since it is the holiday season we are getting a lot of amazing Christmas songs. One can be found in the new track from Michael Rapp. The song “Christmas Is For Kids” (Stage Too) is fast becoming a solid favorite among many. Matt Andersen has “My Little Country Church At Christmas Time” (Busted Flat Records) that is really working well. Joey Canyon has a multi-format Holiday stunner in “Colorado Christmas” (Glo-Dot). Toni and Ash came out of nowhere to bring us “Jingle Baby” (Independent). We even have America (remember them?) making a comeback for the Holidays with “Christmas in California”. Izzy Chait breaks with “Oh Holy Night” (McChait Music) from our new Future Hits compilation. Apostle J. Dancy is making quite the name for himself. His debut single “Soon” (Predestined Int) has topped our “most added” column for weeks now and is moving up the charts with lightning speed. Recording artist Travis is “on fire” with his “My Shame” (Tate Music Group) single & Emil is having major chart success with “Night Train” (Caper) Del Robbins is keeping pace with the best of them as his “Where Did The Love Go” (Fame & Fortune) moves higher. There are quite a few artist that have been nominated for this year’s New Music Awards and they include Marsha Jewell, who is back with a new gem “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane). Tommy Roe is on list and he has recently teamed up with Melissa Hooker for the amazing “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records). Matt Backer is a nominee just as his “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records) with Julian Lennon moves towards the top. Claes Cem is also “on” and so is “40,000 Feet” (Momentum Project). Paul Casey is a nominee thanks to his debut “Frontlines” (DaBet Records) single. *Greg Merritt can thank his new “Trying To Get Through” (Azure Forrest) for helping him win recognition as are Royalush thanks to “American Cliché’” (High School). Greg Wallace also made it as his “What If Today” (Riff Ranch) moves higher. Steve Northeast pulled in a few thanks to his amazing “Sand & Stone” (Tidal Records). I’d like to congratulate all of our nominees for this year’s New Music Awards. See you in 2013.

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 Paul McCartney Plays With Nirvana Members The 12/12/12 Concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden has had a lot of great shows, but none more unusual than former Beatle Paul McCartney teaming up with surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic which brought the show to a close. McCartney opened his show with Helter Skelter before playing a few Wings tunes. Diana Krall helped him out for My Valentine off his 2012 album Kisses on the Bottom. He told a story of how a few guys asked him to come jam and it wasn’t long before he realised he was ‘in the middle of a Nirvana reunion’. Introducing Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and touring guitarist (and current Foo Fighter) Pat Smear. They blasted through a new song Cut Me Some Slack before disappearing and leaving his usual (and let’s face it, excellent) band to sound a bit soft by comparison. Alicia Keys closed the show with the help of McCartney’s band playing the Jay-Z song she collaborated on: Empire State of Mind while the stage was filled with fire fighters and other New Yorkers while Paul McCartney danced away. You can preorder all of these tunes on itunes and no doubt these collaborations will be a popular grab. While we’re at it, some of the old bastards still know how to rock (hat tip to The Who) and some of the old bastards have no idea what is going on at all (hat tip to NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams who said The Who were ‘Keith Moon and Roger Daltry’.

Chris Martin Mocks One Direction At Show

Chris Martin joked One Direction didn’t join the Hurricane Sandy 12-1212 benefit because it was ‘way past their bedtime’. A concert held in New York City last night raised more than $30 million for those affected by the superstorm in October. Rock royalty got the party going at Madison Square Garden, among them Coldplay’s frontman who made the quip about the popular teenage boyband. “I know you really wanted One Direction, but it’s way past their bedtime. That’s why you get one-quarter of Coldplay,’ he deadpanned to the audience as he joined REM frontman Michael Stipe for a rendition of Losing My Religion. Surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were joined on stage by The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney to perform a brand new song. Dave spoke about deciding to showcase the track rather than one of their classic tracks. “It’s funny because I think people were expecting us to do a Beatles song or a Nirvana song but when I first called Paul to see if he would jam with us, none of us wanted to do a Beatles song or a Nirvana song,’ he explained. “We wanted to do a new song, so we wrote and recorded a new song in a day and it’s heavy as...” Celebrities such as Kristen Stewart and NMW - DECEMBER 14, 2012

Whoopi Goldberg took time out of their busy schedules to accept donations during the telethon. Other acts taking to the stage included Kanye West, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. The Rolling Stones performed hits such as Jumping Jack Flash, with frontman Sir Mick Jagger telling the crowd, “This has got to be the largest collection of old English musicians ever assembled in Madison Square Garden. If it rains in London, you’ve got to come and help us.” The concert came to a close after almost six hours with Alicia Keys singing Empire State of Mind. Hurricane Sandy caused death and destruction when it hit the east coast of America earlier this year. The 12-12-12 benefit is just one example of celebrities doing their bit to restore the damage done. Recently A-listers including Sarah Jessica Parker and Selena Gomez auctioned off once-in-a-lifetime experiences to help raise money for the cause.

Katy Perry & Mayer Go Public

Katy Perry and John Mayer have gone public with their romance. The two singers have been linked since the summer, with reports rife they have split and rekindled their romance several times. Although neither has spoken about the relationship openly, it seems they are now ready for the world to know they are an item. Katy and John attended a performance of Broadway show A Christmas Story: The Musical in New York City last night and happily walked the red carpet together. The pair smiled as they posed for photographs with the show’s composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, as well as with the cast. They seemed happy and relaxed with each other and decided against dressing up for their date. Katy opted for a multi-coloured, knitted coat, worn over a black knee-length skirt, tights and blue suede calf boots. John wore a plaid scarf and beige trousers, with a checked jacket and white shirt. John and Katy raised eyebrows when they were seen enjoying dates in Los Angeles in August, several months after Katy’s divorce from Russell Brand was finalised. Things soon took a twist though, with claims Katy was concerned famed womaniser John wasn’t ready to commit. “She needs the guy to be on board 100 percent and she was sick of John disappearing for five days at a time, then booty calling her, then straightening up and treating her well, only to go back to his old behaviour a few days later,” an insider explained. Things have been firmly back on track for the last few months, with Katy, 28, even thought to be behind 35-year-old John’s dapper makeover.

as the women have been dominating the last few years. Forbes’ has released their annual list of the highest earning women in music, highlighting many of those names that are dominating the charts across all genres. It was a horse race at the top as Britney Spears beat out Taylor Swift by a mere million dollars. Rihanna was third just four million down.

Swift ‘Loving’ Holiday With Styles

Taylor Swift had a wonderful time in Northern England with One Direction’s Harry Styles. The pair have been romantically linked since September and their relationship is heating up quickly. Harry has introduced Taylor to his sister Gemma and his mother Anne during the couple’s visit to his hometown in Derbyshire this week. At the local pub The Rising Sun in the county’s Peak District, Taylor gushed about her holiday to the establishment’s manager Sarah Walker. ‘Taylor said she was loving being in Britain and she also seemed to like being in the country,’ Sarah told British newspaper The Mirror. ‘And she was excited about her birthday and about flying home for Christmas. She said she didn’t mind the cold, but it will be a lot warmer in Nashville. They were both lovely and she’s a honey.’ Harry also escorted his lady to the picturesque landscape of the country’s Lake District. While in Lake Windermere, Taylor and her beau spoke with jewellery shop manager Claire Dibbs about their experience. ‘I was hyperventilating ‘ I just never expected to see them,’ Claire recalled. ‘Taylor introduced herself ‘ she was really lovely. She said they were just here for the day and I think they were there with his parents. She had a lot of bags from Beatrix Potter World. I saw some cuddly toys poking out of the top of the bag. ‘They’d done a lot of shopping. Taylor said she loved the area and said it was really pretty.’

Carly Rae Jepsen: 2012 was incredible

Carly Rae Jepsen was left ‘speechless’ by the multitude of awesome experiences she had in 2012. The Canadian crooner shot to fame this year when her hit single Call Me Maybe became an international hit. In June Carly put on a free performance with Justin Bieber in Mexico City during an outdoor

concert. Carly admits that singing in front of 300,000 fans was daunting at first. “I thought, ‘How am I going to sing?’,” she told MTV News. “I was kind of speechless by the amount of [fans]. But I went out there, sang Call Me Maybe and they took it home. [The experience was] really cool.” Carly won two trophies at November’s MTV Europe Music Awards in the Best Song and Best Push Act categories. The star is in awe of the great level of success she’s achieved in such a short period of time. “I was really lucky to see some of my favourite acts [Fun and Taylor Swift],” she recalled. “And then I won two EMAs. I was not expecting that.”

Keith Richards: Florence can dance

Keith Richards thinks Florence Welch has ‘moves’ as good as Sir Mick Jagger’s. The legendary rocker and his band The Rolling Stones are currently celebrating 50 years in the music industry with the release of compilation album GRRR! The 26-year-old Florence + The Machine singer joined The Rolling Stones on stage in London last month and the 68-year-old was impressed with what she had to offer. ‘I’d never met her before or seen her work, but I just went, ‘Wow, there’s a strong voice,’’ he told British magazine NME. ‘And as it turned out, she’s a hell of a performer. I mean, she gave Mick a run for his money! And she can move. Great fun, lovely girl. We’d do it again.’ The guitarist has enjoyed a long career of recording and touring with band mates Mick, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood. However, being a permanent fixture within the music industry doesn’t necessarily mean Keith has any interest in keeping up with contemporary stars. ‘There’s this one cat K’Naan, from Somalia, now works out of New York, who’s got some good stuff going,’ he mused. ‘But I don’t play keep-up, no. If I hear something that I like, I say, ‘That’s nice,’ and I’ll chop the track out. But otherwise, I just listen to what I’ve always listened to, which is rhythm and blues, that’s my staple diet. And a dose of country music, and a touch of Mozart.’

Morrissey: Royals should take hoax responsibility

Singer Morrissey has blasted the British royal family, blaming them for the death of a nurse caught up in a hospital hoax. The Duchess of Cambridge spent a few days at King Edward VII hospital in London last week. Her stay was thrown into turmoil after hosts on an Australian radio station posed as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles in order to get information about Catherine’s condition. Jacintha Saldanha, one of the nurses duped into believing the DJs were members of the monarchy, was found dead last week, and Morrissey believes the royal family should take more responsibility for the 21

tragic events. “Even with the recent story about the nurse killing herself in King Edward Hospital, there’s no blame placed on Kate Middleton [Catherine], who was in the hospital as far as I could see for absolutely no reason,’ he told New Zealand’s 3News. “She feels no shame about the death of this woman, she’s saying nothing about the death of this poor woman. The arrogance of the British royals is staggering, absolutely staggering. And why it’s allowed to be I really don’t know. “And I’m sure the palace and Clarence House put maximum pressure on this poor receptionist and nurse, and of course that’s kept away from the press.” Anti-monarchist Morrissey went on to make serious allegations about Catherine’s health. The pregnant duchess checked into the hospital to be treated for severe morning sickness, but outspoken Morrissey has questioned the real reason for her stay at the medical facility. “Does she have a health condition...? Is it anorexia or is it pregnancy? I mean morning sickness already?’ Morrissey added. ‘So much hoo haw and then suddenly as bright as a button as soon as this poor woman dies she’s out of hospital? It doesn’t ring true.’ Morrissey has made no secret of his dislike for the British royal family. Last year, he said on American TV that the royals were ‘absolutely horrible people’ and ‘arrogant, horrible dictators’. 2Day FM hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian have given a series of interviews in Australia about the prank, where they have said they are ‘incredibly sorry’ for the events. A post-mortem has been carried out on the nurse’s body to determine the cause of her death. The results are expected to be published on Thursday, with reports claiming she was found hanged in staff accommodation near the hospital and declared dead at the scene. It has also been reported that the nurse wrote letters to her husband and two children before she died.

Alicia Keys Loves Singing Nursery Rhymes

The Starting Line are excited to announce that they will be kicking off their Say It Like You Mean It 10th Anniversary Tour on December 7th at Saint Andrews Hall in Detroit, MI. This special tour will commemorate the anniversary of the band’s debut album, which earned them at #1 slot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and sold over 300,000 copies on Drive-Thru Records. Fans will remember the pop-punk anthem, “The Best of Me,” and will be thrilled to find that the band will be playing the record in entirety, along with a selection of songs from their other records. The tour will span throughout the month of December, and culminate at the Electric Factory in the band’s hometown of Philadelphia, PA, on December 30th.

Alicia Keys says performing Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star with her husband is one of their favourite pastimes. The singer opened up about motherhood and how she likes to spend time with her family. Alicia gets her husband hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz involved in cheesy rhyme singing to their two-year-old son Egypt. “We’re always singing together. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, The Hokey Pokey, Happy Birthday, and we like one of my songs, New Day,” Alicia told Parent & Child magazine. “That’s Egypt’s favourite.” The 31-year-old chart topper explained what other activities she likes to do with her family. The

highly ambitious star admitted she is inflicting adult culture on her toddler, although she does allow him to let his hair down occasionally. “We love to go to art galleries and to the park. We love to do painting days and to visit our family - and we also love to run around our house and just go nuts!” Alicia laughed. The star is currently promoting her fifth studio album Girl on Fire and discussed how she has changed both personally and professionally since becoming a mother. Alicia feels lucky to have taken to motherhood so well while also maintaining a successful career as a recording artist. “Being a parent has made me more open, more connected to myself, more happy, and more creative. I’m more discerning in what I do and how I do it. It’s just made me a better person all the way around,” Alicia gushed. “What’s been surprisingly hard about becoming a mom is being away from him and trying to find that magical balance for everything, which I kind of expected. But on the flip side, what’s been surprisingly easy is just how natural parenthood feels. I feel great about how easily I’ve fallen into the role. I love it!”

Mick Jagger Gives Rocker Advice

Sir Mick Jagger has divulged the top ten list of things he has learnt after 50 years of Rock ‘n’ Roll. The frontman of The Rolling Stones is currently celebrating half a century of success with the legendary British band. Included on his tongue-in-cheek list were tips on attempting to stay relevant. ‘Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album,’ he told American television host David Letterman. The star then teased about the importance of understanding when you are during a tour and made a light-hearted joke about Maroon 5’s song Moves like Jagger. ‘Before shouting, ‘Hi Seattle!’ make sure you’re in Seattle,’ he deadpanned. ‘[And] you don’t earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger. ‘Everybody you meet after you become famous is only interested in you as a person.’ Mick also gave strange advice about romance and mortgages, before joking he keeps things fresh by sometimes signing a different name when asked for an autograph. The 69-year-old then happily gave his top three tips. ‘Three - Be considerate of other hotel guests - trash your room by 10pm. Two - You can’t always get what you want - like a good joke on the top ten list. One - You start out playing rock ‘n’ roll so you can have sex and do drugs. But you

Justin Bieber was targeted in a murder plot by a convicted killer in New Mexico, according to a local report. Las Cruces prison inmate Dana Martin recruited Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane to castrate and murder the 18-year-old singer in New York City last month, KRQE News reports. Justin was in town performing at Madison Square Garden at the time. The motive for the alleged plot is currently unknown. Dana is serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15-year-old girl in 2000. He reportedly told police the trio planned to kidnap Justin and his bodyguard and strangle them with paisley ties. The convict, who has a tattoo of Justin on his leg, once used paisley ties as his calling card. Tanner planned to castrate Justin and his bodyguard, it is alleged. The news outlet reports Dana alerted authorities about the plot before it could be carried out. Mark Staake was subsequently arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants. Tanner Ruane was reportedly found with a pair of pruning sheers when he was arrested in New York City.

Rita Ora: I’m afraid to fail

Multiplatinum-selling progressive rock luminaries, Trans-Siberian Orchestra will release their brand new five-song EP, “Dreams Of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night),” on October 30 in stores and online. It’s the group’s debut under the partnership between LAVA Records and Republic Records and their first release since 2009’s gold-selling double-disc, Night Castle, which debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200.

The 21-year-old star has had huge success with her music career. Despite having a string of hits under her belt, the pop singer still worries she isn’t good enough. “I’m scared of a lot of things,” Rita revealed to the British edition of Vogue magazine. “I’m most scared of failing, of disappointing people. That’s it.” Rita, who is mentored by Jay-Z manages to mask her insecurities with her confident public persona. But she admitted she flies into a panic if things don’t go according to her career plan. “Something’s always gotta happen! You know when you’ve wanted something for so long?” Rita nervously said. “You want it so much that it’s not possible for it not to happen in your mind? But when it does happen you’re not prepared for the actual experience.” The internationally recognised

singer is still getting used to fame. She struggles to comprehend the reaction she gets from audiences at her sell-out performances. “All these girls were coming up to me with tattoos of my name on their arm. Girls with blonde hair and red lips,” Rita explained. “I couldn’t believe the effect I’d had!”

Christina Aguilera Is Liberal Mom

Christina Aguilera lets her son ‘do everything’. The singer takes a liberal approach when it comes to parenting four-year-old Max, her son with ex-husband Jordan Bratman. The blonde bombshell explained that she certainly doesn’t believe in having separate toys and fancy dress outfits for boys and girls. And with a bulging wardrobe full of extravagant stage costumes, Christina doesn’t mind her son playing with different looks. ‘Max is obsessed with zombies, trucks and video games at the moment! But sometimes he wants to try on one of my dresses. I let him do everything,’ she told the German edition of OK! magazine. Christina added that she lets her son make his own decisions when it comes to his appearance too.

Rihanna asked a producer to create a song for her in two days. The pop star approached Calvin Harris to work on her new album. The 28-year-old was unable to create the track due to the unrealistic deadline he was given. “Rihanna has been recording the new album and she said to me, ‘You have to do something for it,’ and so I sat there and said, ‘OK I need to do this,’” Calvin revealed to BBC Radio One. “I sat in the studio and thought, ‘OK I’ve got two days to do this.’ Two days to make one of the best records I’ll probably ever make in my life.” Calvin previously collaborated with Rihanna on the hit song We Found Love.

Depeche Mode To Release March Album

Depeche Mode are set to release their 13th studio album in NMW - DECEMBER 14, 2012

March 2013 on Columbia Records. ‘I am very happy with how the album turned out,’ comments DM founder Martin Gore. ‘The music has a similar vibe to Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion and I think there are a few songs on the album that are among some of the very best we’ve done.’ The band has announced that the new album will contain brand new tracks written by Gore and Dave Gahan. Gahan reveals, ‘The album has a very organic and direct feel to it. It’s not a blues record, but it definitely has a soulful vibe. During the recording process we really tried to get the elements of performing and the live show into the album more.’ The band gave fans a glimpse into the making of the new album in October when they released the following video clip featuring new music (http:// smarturl.it/dmcollage). Additional album details will be disclosed in the coming weeks. Pioneers of the post-punk era, Depeche Mode have gone on to become one of modern music’s most influential groups with global sales in excess of 100 million. Formed in 1981, Depeche Mode ‘ Martin Gore, Dave Gahan and Andy ‘Fletch’ Fletcher ‘ continue to win critical and commercial acclaim around the world both in the studio and on the road. The band’s 12 released studio albums have reached the Top Ten in over 20 countries, including the US and UK. Their last album, 2009’s Sounds of The Universe, debuted at the #1 chart spot in 14 countries around the world. depechemode.com

Toby Keith keeps our Country hopes alive by cranking out hit after hit. He does it once again with “Hope On the Rocks” (Show Dog/Universal) and many of our programmers are loving this one. George Strait seems to always surface with a winner when you need one. His latest and greatest can be found in the song “Give It All We Got” (MCA). Jason Aldean has most certainly had a stellar last few years. This guy has come a long way and continues to shine with “The Only Way I Know” (Broken Bow). Lee Brice is having himself another banner year and continues trending at radio in a big way with the new and improved “I Drive Your Truck” (Curb). We’ll see how this one plays out in the coming weeks but so far it’s looking real good for our pal Lee. The group we have come to know as Thompson Square keeps impressing every step of the way. The case in point may just fall in the single “If I Didn’t Have You” (Stoney Creek/Sony) that is a real delight. The Band Perry is as tight as any brother and sister act can be in this day and age. “Better Dig Two” (Republic Nashville) is the new one from them and it’s lighting up the phones every time it gets a spin. American Idol’s favorite Country launch in Carrie Underwood continues to shine like the star she is. “Two Black Cadillac’s”(Arista/ RLG) is one of her best to date. Another Idol Queen that can be found as the multi-talented Kelly Clarkson has joined forces with veteran Vince Gill for a real treat. That nugget can be found in “Don’t Rush” (RCA Nashville). Dustin Lynch is rocking the Country world and make no mistake about that. “She Cranks My Tractor” (Broken Bow) is the one that is getting all the praise. It’s kind of interesting to see the name Hayden Panettiere on our Country charts. Not a real surprise considering all the hype and attention that Nashville television show is getting. Nonetheless, she taking the single “Telescope” (Big Machine/Universal) for a ride and so far so very good. Recording artist Michael Lusk is having quite the run up the charts. Make sure to find a spot on your programming list for the single “Try” (Vroom) and you’ll be thrilled. I hope you are ready for JetSet GetSet? They are taking the track “Saturday Night” (Playback) out on the road and things are looking good. Michael Lynne has been picking up a number of believers. They are raving about the single “Missing You” (CMG) and for good reason. Tim McGraw is rocking the free Country world with “One Of Those Nights” (Big Machine/Universal) and the new label thing seems to be working out for him. His better half (and I do mean better) Faith Hill is back and having a good time with her new track “American Heart” (WB/WEA). Little Big Town is also back with a real gem. Make sure you take their latest single “Tornado” (Capitol) for a spin around the block. Just in case you haven’t notices, this is our official Nomination Issue. Some of the notables still rocking strong include the amazing and fun loving Taylor Made. Our stations can’t seem to get enough of “That’s What Life Is” (Little General). Tobi Gordon made the list and she continues to impress us with “Follow The Star” (Platinum Plus). Her label also scored with the Smokey River Boys who have a holiday favorite in “Honky Tonk Christmas” that many of you are loving. Nominee Joey Canyon is also getting some holiday love for his “Colorado Christmas” (Glo-Dot). We were also thrilled to see that the duo Branch and Dean get a good mention. Other notables nominees (among the many) include Erica Nicole, The Wheeler Sisters, Kelly Parkes and Jeff Maddox. This will also be our final issue for 2012. I want to extend my thanks to all that have participated in this column. The outpouring of thanks from artists and bands has been endless and I run into people each and every day that comment about their appreciation for what we do here. It is so vital that we keep the Country charts alive and well for not only the major artists but for the independent one as well. We will continue to help “level the playing field” well into 2013.

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 - DECEMBER 14, 2012

Analog Dolls:

Tashaki Miyaki

Tashaki Miyaki is a sound that’s getting back to basics. The California T band isn’t alone either. A lot of acts today are setting the reset button and getting back to the roots of American music. LA based ‘American surf pop’ band Best Coast and the ‘Indie Pop’ NY sweetheart group Cults are among the better known. And it’s just the beginning. The up and coming Tashaki Miyaki possesses an air of sincerity, exploring both the dark and sweet recesses of the soul via distorted echoes and lullaby voices. Their first album, simply titled “EP”, is an 8-track collection, available T at the moment only in digital format. Songs like “Somethin is Better than Nothin,” “Happiness,” and the Buddy Holly cover “Heartbeat” hint at the fitting mix of Jesus and the Mary Chain and Mazzy Star. I caught a recent show at The Echo in Los Angeles, they had just gotten done with a month long UK tour. The intimate, outer-spacey venue allowed Tashaki Miyaki the perfect setting. The trio sets up front stage, one guy and two girls, drums/lead vocals in the middle, flanked by bass/vocals on the right and guitar on the left. In the background, a large screen plays vintage snippets -- Zepruder-like footage -- of pool parties, the Apollo missions, and flying saucers over Washington. Their live sound is just as entrancing and impressive as their recorded songs. The group’s allure rests in SSo, try not to be fooled, and don’t assume we have them all figured out. The trio can be as endearing and they can be elusive. Not e six-shooter. The music video for “Best Friend” reveals a mellow Bonnie & Clyde playing house, taking road trips in an old run-down Merce exuding something mysterious and mutely sexy. IIn the early 1960s, before the explosion of that era went full throttle, there was a folk revival. It was very much politically-driven, opp totin’ toad named Bob Dylan to the legendary status he’s held on to for the last 50 years. Even more significant than the political stance Century. Shortly thereafter, Dylan closed the door on folk and went electric (to the chagrin of diehards everywhere), 60s pop exploded, an forthcoming galactic album cover reveals) and at the same time aware of the pangs of living in this world. II’m noticing something of a revival in the underground music scene, particularly here in LA. Call it what you want (alternative, dream of any political angst or move for radical social change, clans like Tashaki Miyaki, The Dum Dum Girls, Father John Misty, and aforement buying vinyl (Tashaki even has a formidable cover of Father John Misty’s “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings”). II’ve written before of a polarization within today’s music. The Skrillex vs. Lana Del Rey paradox. While electronic music festivals are s and Polaroid cameras. Their next single to come out, available digitally and on vinyl Sept. 4th, is a cover of the Everly Brothers ballads, “ feedback. For star children born decades too late, Tashaki Miyaki certainly has impeccable timing. 40

n the satisfying paradox of its disposition. even I’m privy to the band members’ names or their backgrounds.

There’s a dangerous subtext beneath the blissful, melodic sway;

nd the rest is history. Tashaki Miyaki falls into the vein of an old dreamy-eyed rock sound, gazing out into the cosmic infinite (as their

College radio is “alive and well”, especially for this “Year End & Nomination” issue. We’ve been able to acknowledge the very best and in this issue you will see most of them “in action”. Through our New Music Awards we are also able to honor many radio stations and their programmers for their yearly contributions. We also give some kudos to record labels, radio promotion experts and public relation outfits. It takes a good solid team to make things happen in this industry and we honor the ones that really help to “make it all happen”. This is also our Future Hits issue and for many of you the CD sampler for your programming needs is here. Some notables include the amazing Pugsley Buzzard. His track “Bad Attitude” (MGM) will no doubt get the phones ringing. The super band Stand Volume also provides us with a major winner in “You Don´t Know Me” (SV). Marsha Jewell brings her new hit single “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane) to the FH party and take a look at her early chart action in this issue. Oliver James kicks it all off with the brilliant “Running Back To You” (Wire & Wood). Shelley Laine is the Country stunner with her strong “Born Again American” & Izzy Chait is just in time for your holiday programming needs with “Oh Holy Night” (McChait Music). Check out these and more right now on your new Future Hits. Ronnie Van Zant, founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, died 35 years ago in an airplane crash that shocked the nation. Now a book honoring Van Zant, written by Ron Eckerman, will be given away in ebook format free to members of the Armed Forces and veterans until Christmas. “The other day I was on a radio program that went out to our military and I announced I’d give each and every one of them a free ebook for Christmas,” Eckerman says. “I hope everybody will spread the word for me. They’ll be able to order it from turnitupbook.com starting on Thanksgiving Day, formatted for their phone, laptop, ereader or tablet. “Sweet Home Alabama,” written 40 years ago by Ronnie Van Zant, Ed King, and Gary Rossington, is beloved of hundreds of millions of people throughout the world, yet few know who wrote it. Ronnie Van Zant, lyricist, wrote dozens of hits including “Free Bird,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “Simple Man,” and countless others in a career that spanned only four short years. Ron Eckerman was with them two of the four years Lynyrd Skynyrd was on the map, and both witnessed and assisted in their climb to the top of the music industry. Now, after 35 years of silence, Eckerman recounts his experiences with the band and the horror of the plane crash in his book, Turn It Up! (Restless Artists).The book is available in all ebook formats and can be read on any electronic reading device. To order a copy, members of the military and veterans can go to the website turnitupbook. com and follow the ordering instructions, beginning on Thanksgiving Day and lasting until Christmas Day. Taos, New Mexico’s newly signed singer-songwriter, Max Gomez, will join several Grammy Award winning singersongwriters for a special holiday concert featuring stories told through songs during “Songs and Stories,” on Friday, Dec. 28. Both Grammy award winning singer-songwriters Lari White and Chuck Cannon, along with Michael Hearne (Texas singer-songwriter of the Year) and Gomez will perform at the special concert from 8 to 11 p.m. at the KTAOS Solar Center. At only 9 years old, Taos native Max Gomez first picked up his brother’s guitar and never put it down, later embarking on song-writing as a teenager. At 15, Gomez began singing both original music and country/blues music at bars in his hometown of Taos.Gomez was recently signed with New West Records and will launch his debut album, Rule the World, in January 2013. Gomez’s catchy debut single, “Run from You” was released in October 2012 and is now available on iTunes. Another new song, “Rule the World” reveals the raw emotion woven within Gomez’s storytelling ability, and can be seen on Gomez’s website at maxgomezmusic.com/works, during an in-studio performance.
