Souleye, New Age Hip Hop Rapper, Announces the Eagerly Awaited Album: WILDMAN Releasing September 22, 2017!

On September 22, 2017, veteran hip-hop rapper Souleye will release his long awaited full-length record, Wildman.

Los Angeles, CA, September 20, 2017 – On September 22, 2017, veteran hip-hop rapper Souleye will release his long awaited full-length record, Wildman. The Los Angeles based artist teamed up with house duo Crush Effect, comprising of Jess Molloy and Dave Veith, to produce an exceptionally eye-opening hip-hop and electronic fused album.

Wildman represents a mindful and musically engaging listening experience. A socially conscious artist, Souleye delivers an innovative and intense lyric flow that drips with passion. His clever references outline a positive sense of being. In “Follow Your Heart,” the debut single from Wildman, Souleye discusses overcoming hesitations with self-awareness and self-motivation in order to follow your own passions. His rhythmic lines weave in and out of the down-tempo grooves and musical stylings of Crush Effect. Molloy and Veith blend elements of electronic, R & B, hip hop, and trip-hop to create a psychedelic and atmospheric album that occupies the space between a traditional compilation record and a concept album.

“One of the reasons so many pop and hip hop albums don’t sound cohesive is that those 12 tracks were recorded in 12 different studios with 12 different producers,” says Veith, of Crush Effect. “It was nice to do a full record, to build that sound from song to song.”

In addition to Crush Effect, the album features guest appearances by an array of upcoming and renowned artists, incorporating fresh, melodic hooks into each song. The album includes focus tracks such as, “Snow Angel” (Ft. Alanis Morissette), “Hip Hop Medicine” (Ft. Dustin Tavella), “Classic” (Ft. Chantal Kreviazuk, Chachillie), “Fountain of Youth” (Ft. Wade Morissette) and the latest single and title-track, “Wildman” (Ft. Lynx).

Souleye is a one-of-a-kind artist making a statement in the hip hop and electronic scene. He continues to shape his signature style with inspiring and poetic rhymes. His carefully selected collaborators offer creative instrumentation that only enhances Souleye’s enlightened lyrics.

Blue Moon Harem Releases “Finland”

Blue Moon Harem Releases “Finland”, the title track off the “Finland” album. The single is promoted via “Stephen’s Indie Picks” originating out of Muscle Shoals, AL.

Muscle Shoals, AL, USA (March 3, 2015) — Who knew what being hit on the nose by a violin teacher could lead to?

As a child, Jonathan Bix was forced to take violin lessons by his well-meaning mother. What made the situation worse is the fact that his teacher would hit him on the nose when he seemed to be losing focus.

Once freed from this tyrannical teacher, Bix began to teach himself guitar and to take inspiration from the likes of early LP gifts of Glenn Campbell and Willie Nelson, later discoveries by John Lennon and The Beatles, and the Steve Miller music his schizophrenic next door neighbor played every night before bed. As a member of Misguided Youth, Bix toured China and Mexico, opened for the likes of Foghat and appeared with Jane Pauley on NBC’s “Today” Show.

Demetri Joannou became interested in the guitar at the age of eight and began to write songs at 19. A prodigious writer and arranger, Joannou worked with many popular artists in town before finding his true match.

Bix and Joannou first met as members of the popular Boston band Requiem in the mid 1990s. Guitarist Joannou was looking for a vocalist to put his musical ideas into motion when his guitar teacher told him about a common friend who was down on his luck and in need of a job and a musical direction. Joannou got Bix hired in his father’s company and began to collaborate with him in the studio. The result was an album that received airplay all over Boston and was featured three times on Harvey Warfield’s famed Boston Music Showcase. ?Working with rhythm players from such legendary Boston bands as Scissorfight and Two Ton Shoe, Bix and Joannou recorded a full-length Requiem CD in 1997 that landed them a spot on the DiscMakers New England Battle of the Bands. Though the album and the band both well received from Charlestown to China, Bix and Joannou soon felt a need to change their sound and go their own way.

Encouraged and engineered by producer Jim Siegle at The Outpost in Stoughton, MA, the duo began to experiment with looping and other instrumental technologies that allowed them to achieve a band sound without having to deal with the pitfalls of supporting a full band, The result was a new album that the pair released under the name Blue Moon Harem.

After years of extensive touring and constant performing, Bix and Joannou decided to slow down and refocus their creative energies. As Bix had been writing songs on the road on his acoustic guitar, they decided to put together an album that was more focused on song craft than technological wizardry yet which still maintained a rich, full sound. The result is “Finland,” a collection of highly personal songs that are supported by the likes of drummer Steve Hart who has previously worked with Aerosmith axeman Joe Perry, among others.

With their simple, honest sound and thoughtful songwriting, Blue Moon Harem is ready to hit the road again, building slowly from coffee house gigs to arena stages. Their ambitions are great, but so is their talent and wealth of experience. Already ,they are a top selection on such popular Internet stations as Jango Radio and Reverb Nation and the fan base continues to build with every song and every set. Flush with new energy and ideas, the band is already working on their third album and look forward to bringing their music to all corners of the heart, mind, and soul.

“Our message is clear,” Joannou says. “We want people to listen to our music and become inspired.” And all without any damage to the nose!

Antonio “A&R” Richardson Promises Growth in 2012

Antonio “A&R” Richardson had a great year in 2011, but in 2012 he’ll only get better.

St. Paul, MN (USA), Thursday – January 05, 2012 — For Antonio “A&R” Richardson, 2011 was a year of development. The Saint Paul, Minn. hip hop artist and actor built on the success he experienced in 2009 and 2010 to further challenge himself to only get better.

In 2011, Richardson saw the release of two major motion pictures, DreamWorks’ Transformers 3 and Warner Bros’ Contagion, both of which he had the pleasure of being cast in. He also released Cool Is Where I Live, a mixtape available on his website, ionlygetbetter.com.

Perhaps the most rewarding challenge for Richardson in 2011 was the launch of his brand, Busy Little Beavers. Creating a clothing line has been a lifelong dream for Richardson, who is continuously cultivating his own style to represent his individuality using the newest trends to compliment his classic style. As an entrepreneur, Richardson ( http://www.ionlygetbetter.com ) values innovation, creativity, and ambition. He emphasizes attention to detail and quality in everything he does. Busy Little Beavers is no exception; Richardson takes great care in creating a product that lives up to his values: detail is key; quality is common sense. The name Busy Little Beavers came from a recording studio session Richardson had in April 2011. The name refers to a sound that moved Richardson, “I asked my producer what the sound was called and he told me “Busy Little Beaver”. I couldn’t explain it, but the name struck me.” For Richardson, Busy Little Beavers was the brand he had been trying to formulate his entire life.

Richardson also had the honor of participating in an after school program for the students of Elizabeth Hall Elementary School in Minneapolis, Minn. The program was developed to improve test scores by providing students with a structured environment to increase academic skills through participation in enrichment activities of their choice. When the program was looking for a music teacher for the fourth and fifth grade students, Richardson was a natural choice. “Music has really saved my life, I don’t know where I would be without it”, says Richardson, who was the same age as his students when he began writing music.

Fans can expect 2012 to be just as busy for Richardson, who plans to release both a mixtape and album in the coming months and to continue to build Busy Little Beavers. Richardson also has a few new business ventures on the horizon that will be sure to please his followers. Check for news regarding his upcoming releases on ionlygetbetter.com ( http://www.ionlygetbetter.com ) or follow his journey at twitter.com/anrmusic.

The Danish Rock Band Dead Smiling Pirates Release a New Single from the Upcoming Album

Dead Smiling Pirates Release the New Single “By The End Of” on December 2th.

Copenhagen, Denmark, November 26, 2011 – Dead Smiling Pirates used in autumn 2011 focus groups from SoundOut to determine the quality of the tracks for their upcoming album “Harvest On A Hype.” Focus groups identified three potential singles. The band has chosen to release one of them as the first single. “By The End Of” is going to be released on December 2th.

Dead Smiling Pirates hails from Copenhagen, Denmark. The three pirates set sail on the musical oceans for a life of music piracy in 2006 and released a debut album in 2007. This power packed trio plays catchy alternative rock filled with an eclectic mix of influences highlighted by lots of tight breaks, trashy guitar riffs, and punk influenced vocals. They back up their sound with attitude focusing on the irony of life, and lyrics about egoism, ethics, and beyond.

The leadsinger Kim Burmeister says “Dead Smiling Pirates plays alternative rock and sounds like something between Paramore, Blink-182, Linkin Park and Metallica”.

Their motto “Release Your Inner Pirate” gives a hint of their ironic and challenging mindset. This take on life is bound to appeal to young and old alike, with the prerequisite being your own punkrock like attitude and undying nonconformist view of life itself with dead aim at the modern day corporate establishment. If you feel this way join the club and give this indie band a good listen. You are invited to take a voyage on their private ship of musical delights.
