New Streaming and Radio Aggregator Social Platform to Launch at 2019 SXSW Tradeshow

Houston, Texas U.S.A., 2019-Mar-02 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Dousic Media Group (DMG), a Houston based Company with affiliated offices in Punjab and soon to be registered in Singapore, is set to launch its new Dousic Social Platform at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, Texas between March 10th thru 13th, 2019, located at Booth No. 1239, Halls 2-5 in the Austin Convention, where the newly upgraded Dousic website and App will be unveiled.

Dousic is an interactive social media platform that engages users with a diverse discovery experience. In the Dousic community the public can personalize their content and creators can monetize their products.

“With Dousic we wanted to create a social media platform for people like photographers, models, authors and musicians, so that they have total control of their destiny by owning their brands and products via the website and the App. In addition, Dousic is a fully functioning social media platform giving users a wide variety of connectivity such as chat, audio or video calls, all in one convenient location”, said Michael Ferguson, DMG Executive Vice President/Founder.

DMG Founder and CEO, Brian Moore, emphasized that “the Indie Music Industry has been trying to find its footing for some time and from where I sit there is still a clear lack of understanding of how to ensure that Indie Creators get an even playing field and are being properly compensated. Accordingly, we have designed Dousic to give them back brand control and content ownership.”

Following on from SXSW, our future website and App enhancements will ensure Dousic is a place where Creators maintain full ownership and control, giving them stronger leverage when in negotiations with Record Labels.

Dousic’s Mission is to provide a global hub for an interactive and personalized entertainment experience. We are committed to helping Indie Creators reach their full potential.

A movie buff from a young age, he eagerly awaited the release of the latest Bollywood movies, and sat back to listen to and learn the lyrics to songs while most of the audience used it as an interval. The first step of his musical career was in 1966, when he performed with a group of local musicians in a stage show, Young Talents’ Night at the Don Bosco Hall in Mangalore, following which, he has today completed over 10,000 performances, including 1,002 stage shows, across the country.

Dastaan is a soulful reminiscent by Santhosh Hegde to his wife, and pillar of support for almost four decades, Suman. In tribute to her birth anniversary, the musical concert would be held at the Chowdaiah Memorial Hall, in Malleswaram, Bangalore, and would involve engaging performances by Santhosh Hegde himself, along with other talented artists. Presented in remembrance to Suman Hegde and the love and inspiration she brought into the lives of her loved ones, the evening promises to be a magical trip down to the Golden Yesteryears of Bollywood Music.

Joining him in his performance would be his daughter, Mithila Hegde, a filmmaker by profession, who has been performing alongside him since the age of 9. He will also be accompanied by Ahmed Ali, a popular Hindustani/Sufi artiste from Kolkata who has learned his craft from renowned Hindustani vocalist, Ustad Abdul Rashid Khan. The evening would also feature Priya Yadav, who is an acclaimed, versatile vocalist based out of Bangalore. The band accompanying the artist would be a Kerala-based 15-member orchestra that has performed with the likes of Yesudas, S. Janaki, and Unnikrishnan, to name a few.

The concert will be hosted by the multi-faceted Vasanthi Hariprakash, who remains the much loved voice of the Breakfast Show on RadioCity 91.1FM.

Jerry Velona Releases New Album Entitled Love Radio

Boston based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jerry Velona has released his sixth album entitled Love Radio. The record contains 9 tracks ranging from rock to funk, soul, country and blues.

Boston, MA, USA (November 12, 2014) — Boston based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jerry Velona has released his sixth album entitled Love Radio. The record contains 9 tracks ranging from rock to funk, soul, country and blues.

Love Radio features six original compositions by Velona as well as three covers including the lead track, Looking for Lewis and Clark composed by Sid Griffin and a hit for his band The Long Ryders in the mid 1980’s. Velona updated some of the song’s lyrics with Griffin’s permission and about Velona’s version he commented: “Jerry Velona once again proves his musical worth in a balls-to-the-wall cover version of the Long Ryders’ ‘Looking For Lewis & Clark’, a pounding yet melodic take which begs the question: where are the great and fearless leaders of the present day? Velona’s committed vocal and approach to the lyric may not provide a complete set of answers but oh Mercy, they frame the question so very, very well.” A video for the song can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmAAaMoalag&feature=youtu.be.

The record features an assortment of some of the finest musicians in the Boston area including several faculty members of Velona’s alma mater The Berklee College of Music. Local singer Debbie Pierre is featured on background vocals on many of the tracks as well as the lead vocal on The Ghetto (ain’t going back). Hip hop artist and spoken word poet J Ivy is also featured on the same track which was adapted from the Donny Hathaway tune Ghetto first recorded in the 1970’s.

“I’ve spent a great deal of time over the past couple of years composing, arranging and recording these songs,” said Velona, “I’m very proud of the record and I think some of the tracks represent my best work to date.”

Velona produced the record in addition to singing most of the tracks and playing drums and percussion on many of them. The songs were recorded at Woolly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, MA and Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA. Mastering was done by Bill Bromfield at Clockwise Records, Nashville.

In addition to Looking for Lewis and Clark, Love Radio features several straight-ahead rock tracks including the humorous When I Wake Up, the semi-biographical First to Last and the subtly political The Bureau of Whatever.

Other highlights include the deft funk of Our Own Devices which Velona playfully describes as, “our ode to analog fun.” The album also features the bluesy Just Don’t Feel Like Christmas about which Velona says, “I was trying to express the melancholy that often accompanies the Christmas season.” The record is balanced out by covers of the Robbie Robertson song Forbidden Fruit and the somewhat obscure soul chestnut Baby What’cha Got (for me) recorded by the late soul singer Darrell Banks in l967.

Love Radio is available for sale at CDBaby.com http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jerryvelona5. More information on Velona and the release can be obtained at http://www.jerryvelona.com.

Jerry Velona is a Boston area singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He’s played and sung in a number of Boston bands and has written songs which have appeared on HBO, MTV and elsewhere. His voice has been featured in commercials and the theme song for the independent film “Lifestyles of the Poor and Unknown”. He can be reached through his website at jerry@jerryvelona.com.

Greg Shirley Set To Release “Hillbilly Girl” on October 14

Country Singer Greg Shirley Set to Release Debut Single and Accompanying Video for “Hillbilly Girl,” on October 14 from Garage Door Records.

Chattanooga, TN, USA (October 7, 2014) — Chattanooga-based label Garage Door Records announces an October 14 release and radio add date for “Hillbilly Girl,” the debut single from country music singer Greg Shirley, along with its accompanying video. The new single, written by Jason Blaine McEwen and Willie Mack, precedes the release of his first album, Raised on the Run, which will street in late winter, 2015, and was produced by T.W. Cargile and Greg Shirley.

The “Hillbilly Girl” video was directed by Lance Goodman for The Beauty of Music Productions and perfectly captures the upbeat, fun-loving spirit of the new single.

Supporting Alabama-based Greg Shirley on his debut is a virtual “who’s-who” of Nashville players. Jim Moose Brown, a veteran multi-instrumentalist who has lent his talents to recordings from Waylon Jennings, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, and Bob Seger, plays keys. Drummer Eddie Bayers has earned the prestigious Academy of Country Music Drummer of the Year award for eight years straight. Bassist Kevin “Swine” Grantt’s resume includes work for Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Colt Ford, and Willie Nelson.

Co-producer and engineer T.W. Cargile recorded Greg’s vocals at Jamey Johnson’s Big Assed Studio in Nashville. The co-producer of Johnson’s Grammy-nominated “In Color,” Cargile’s track record with Alabama-based songwriters is undisputed.

In addition to Greg’s own compositions, the forthcoming album includes contributions from some of Nashville’s most celebrated songwriters, notably Bernie Nelson and Chris Wallin. Kenny Chesney, Chris LeDoux, and Randy Travis have all taken Nelson’s songs to the top of the charts, and the smash, “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind,” earned him Million Airplay status in 2002. Wallin has enjoyed his share of chart success as well: his recent “Something to Be Proud Of” kept Montgomery Gentry at number one for weeks. His songs have appeared on albums by everyone from Trace Adkins to Confederate Railroad and Diamond Rio.
