Indie Rock Band This is she, Release Debut EP Nobody is Ok July 3rd

Featuring the powerful single “grow up”

Los Angeles, CA, June 28, 2012 – This Is She is about to turn lives upside down with the release of their new 6-song EP, Nobody Is Ok, gigs at mega events like Summerfest, a performance with Cobra Starship later this year and the release of their video for the single “Grow Up”. With success biting at their heels, This Is She steps outside the box of typical indie rock to deliver catchy hooks, driving rhythms and to create progressive rock n’ roll laced with pop, dubstep and electronica. This Is She is set to present their Nobody Is Ok EP to the rest of the world, available on iTunes July 3rd.

This Is She ensued when Alana Grace (vocals), Ryan Folden (drums) and Christian Paul Meadows (guitar) met while performing at Warped Tour 2009. Alana Grace began materializing the idea behind her next musical venture and enlisted Folden and Meadows to pursue the new vision to eventually become This Is She. The trio stepped away from the traditional aspects of an indie rock band tapping into the dark side of rock incorporating a passion for dubstep and electronica to create a style all their own. This Is She relishes in their unique, unparalleled sound and the inability to neatly fit into any genre. The band delivers a blend of blissful pop, heavily-distorted rock music, and the bombast of modern electronic dance music, all punctuated by Grace’s tortured, emotive, and always-soaring vocals.

This ultramodern rock n’ roll trio flawlessly delivers with their new single and video “Grow Up”. The song highlights Grace’s vocal elegance while morphing the powerful hard rock guitar riffs into memorizing and intense dubstep and electronica samples. The inspiration behind “Grow Up” is a derivative from Grace’s personal life and an old relationship. Pulling from inner emotions Grace delivers with piercing vocals and hypnotizing harmonies.

In 2011 the group was hard at work producing, writing and recording Nobody is Ok at their own studio and at Blackbird Studios in Nashville. This highly anticipated release of Nobody Is Ok EP is the perfect introductory to give the world a taste of This Is She, available July 3rd.

Florida Power & Light Company Partners with Food Distributor Cheney Brothers to support 300 Jobs in Southwest Florida

Florida Power & Light Company’s special discounted economic development rate will help Cheney Brothers Inc., launch a $100 million distribution center in Charlotte County that will eventually employ about 300 people when it’s fully operational.

Juno Beach, FL (June 28, 2012) — Florida Power & Light Company‘s special discounted economic development rate will help Cheney Brothers Inc., one of the largest food service distributors in the Southeastern United States, launch a $100 million distribution center in Charlotte County that will eventually employ about 300 people when it’s fully operational.

Cheney Brothers is in the process of purchasing 35 acres right off Interstate 75 in Punta Gorda, for the new facility, which will serve customers from Marco Island through the Tampa Bay area.

“We need all the help from all the partners we can get, whether it’s our customer partners or our vendor partners, like Florida Power & Light,” said Bill Foley, President of Cheney Brothers, which is headquartered in Riviera Beach, Fla.

Businesses in FPL’s service territory already benefit from electric bills that are among the very lowest in the state and well below the national average. FPL’s economic development rates provide an additional benefit to new or expanding businesses that expand their electric demand by at least 350 kilowatts and create at least 10 new jobs.

“We’re pleased to play a role in Cheney Brothers’ expansion,” said Lynn Pitts, FPL Director of Economic Development. “FPL’s economic development rate provides an incentive to companies that agree to move to Florida or expand their operations here and create new jobs for Floridians.”

“The discount we get from Florida Power & Light is essential,” Foley said. “Along with fuel, our electric bill is probably our next biggest expense that we have at Cheney Brothers. So that discount helps us out initially and in the long-run also.”

The economic development rate is designed to be an incentive that will encourage new investment and job creation in Florida. Eligible business customers receive a declining discount on their standard base energy and demand charges over four to five years. Visit or contact FPL’s Office of Economic Development at for details.

Luxury Travel Ltd to Continue Growth with New Golf Tours and a New Office in Central Vietnam

The company has just opened a new Danang office and launched new golf tour packages “Central Golf Coast Tour of Vietnam” for travelers seeking challenging links.

Hanoi, Vietnam, June 28, 2012 — Golf tours are getting popular in Central Vietnam thanks to new airline access, luxury properties, and golf courses.

Luxury Travel Ltd. is a long established Asian golf specialist and experts in luxury privately guided and fully bespoke holidays in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand. The company has just opened a new Danang office and launched new golf tour packages “Central Golf Coast Tour of Vietnam” for travelers seeking challenging links.

The central coast is growing in stature as one of the hottest tourist spots in Southeast Asia, with a variety of attractions, including golf. Tour operators are now tapping into this growth with new products and offices.

While Vietnam hasn’t been historically synonymous with great golf, travelers can fly from Hanoi, HCM city or Singapore, BKK, and Kuala Lumpur through Danang’s new international airport which has made the region a “must play” golf experience in Asia.

“On our new 6 day tour, golf lovers will play a few of Vietnam’s world-class golf courses, including Montgomerie Links and Danang Golf Club. You will stay in the best beach front resorts in Danang or Hoi An. Additional historic cultural experiences will be available at Hue and Hoi An, and the stunning coastline of Vietnam will ensure that visitors will take away a truly memorable experience and a great story of newly-discovered adventures. This tour is also suitable for non-golfers companions,” said Pham Ha, founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

For many travel experts, Danang is more appealing than Bali or Phuket and its beach has been voted one of the world’s best by Forbes Magazine.

“There are also two new golf courses, the Laguna Lang Co Golf Club and Ba Na Hills Golf Club, which are set to open in Central Vietnam in late 2012. The past two years have seen the completion of many luxurious resorts along the coastline with names such as Hyatt, the Nam Hai, Accord, Vinpearl, Intercontinental, and Fusion Maia entering the market and offering more choices for golfers. We will launch new exciting golf packages and our efforts are to promote Central Vietnam as a high-end golf destination in Southeast Asia. We are seeing the interest from golfers from the Middle East, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand,” added Mr. Ha.

There are 29 golf courses in Vietnam and many others set to open, making Vietnam Asia’s most exciting new golf tourism destination.

It’s Another Contemporary Jazz Home Run for Project Grand Slam with The Joyfully Melodic and Grooving ‘Spring Dance’

When is the last time a jazz ensemble named after the nefarious scheme of a James Bond villain packed such a solidly melodic and grooving punch?

Hollywood, CA, June 27, 2012 – Project Grand Slam, named by leader Robert Miller as a play on “Goldfinger”’s plan to steal all the gold from Fort Knox, is probably the first—and he and PGS are up to plenty of melodic and grooving wonder this summer on Spring Dance, their explosive new album on Cakewalk Records.

The collection’s lead track is its title tune, an upbeat, feel-good, winner penned by Miller. Miller’s other songs include the Joe Zawinal tribute “Joe Z,” a high energy blast that brings to mind the fiery fusion magic of Weather Report, complete with exotic chanting and old school keyboards; the sensual and elegant soprano sax led ballad “Ma Petite Fleur,” a piece Miller dedicates to his wife and that he calls his favorite on the collection; the brass-fired, classic blues-funk explosion “Catch You Later”; and “Flat Busted,” an in-the-pocket, mid tempo grooving urban jazz tune featuring Gilad Ronen’s hypnotic flute runs.

Ronen and Joye Hennessey’s “Remember” is featured first as a dramatic and soulful, longing romantic vocal (highlighted by strings and an emotional sax solo) and, as a coda to Spring Dance, a thoughtful and reflective instrumental that evolves into a percussive, easy rolling, rhythmically engaging samba. Ronen also composed the ambient, slightly melancholy ballad “The Turn,” which featured a smoky sax melody and soaring horn textures.

The band also covered the old Hollie’s hit, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”. Says Miller: “Joye did an incredible job with the song, almost like Mariah Carey singing jazz!”.

The eclectic nine-track collection is the follow-up release to PGS’ critically acclaimed 2008 debut, Play, which included the Top 20 jazz radio hit “The Captain Of Her Heart” (sung by Judie Tzuke). Five of the tracks from Play, along with the band itself (with Miller having a speaking part), were prominently featured in an episode of the hit NBC-TV series “Lipstick Jungle,” starring Brooke Shields. PGS did several live performances at clubs in NYC in addition to a charity show for the Ronald McDonald House.

For the new album Miller invited Mike Eckroth, keyboardist for guitar legend John Scofield, and alto sax man Danny Lerman to complement the core trio. After a few days of rehearsal, the new lineup of PGS convened in the studio and nailed the basic tracks in a week, with most songs done in two or three takes. After some overdubs, Justin Smith was brought in to sweeten some of the tracks with strings. And Joye Hennessey added her soaring vocals.

Miller is a renowned solo artist. His debut project, Child’s Play (Wildcat Records 1994) included performances by Randy Brecker, Jon Lucien and Anton Fig; his follow up, Prisoners of Love (1996) was released on 32 Records, a label Miller co-founded that became famous in the late ‘90s for a series of “Jazz For…” compilation recordings (Jazz For a Rainy Afternoon, Jazz For The Quiet Time, etc.) that dominated the Billboard Jazz charts and sold well over one million units. His band, The Robert Miller Group, played at many major New York area clubs, graduating to the national festival circuit where they appeared with artists like Bruce Hornsby, Bela Fleck and Kenny Barron.

“The essence of where we are as a group, and where I am personally in my life, is captured in the title track of the album with its upbeat vibe,” says Miller. “It’s a feel good kind of piece with an uplifting melody, funky beat and elements of my jazz fusion background. We’re all about strong melodies and great playing. What excites me most is exciting the listener.”
