90 Year Old NYC Jazz Legend releases new single in 20 years

cover-pressed-flowers

90 Year Old NYC Jazz Legend releases new single in 20 years
Paul Knopf Releases a Jazz Piano Solo Called “Pressed Flowers.”

New York, New York – Veteran piano jazz composer and host of the Outcat Show Podcast, Paul Knopf is releasing his new piano jazz solo: “Pressed Flowers,” through R. Media Inc. Pressed Flowers is a piano jazz solo that is available right now on CD Baby, ITunes and Amazon for digital download. “Pressed Flowers” by Paul Knopf is a piano jazz instrumental love song.

Paul Knopf explained the meaning of his song by saying: “The piano jazz instrumental love song, Pressed Flowers is inspired by a poem I wrote about an experience I had. Here is the poem I wrote: You return again and again, in repetition, winding, rewinding: Laura, Beatrice. I press you between the pages of the book of life, but the nectar of your presence escapes. It’s like a movie. I enter the park through a half open gate as you are leaving or seated at the other end of a subway car, you are reading a book. I never approach you. What if you are not you? The girl I knew in the playgrounds of my childhood.”

The Outcat, Paul Knopf is a seasoned jazz pianist with an interesting past. His career started in the 1950’s, during that time he achieved critical acclaim from Playboy Magazine and Down Beat Magazine; he also appeared on a 1950’s CBS program titled: “Jazz is my beat.” However, he was left a casualty when the Rock and Roll takeover of 1960’s came to fruition. As the entertainment business closed in on him he resorted to playing jazz piano for strip clubs and society bands; in addition, he also worked with professional dancers such as Alvin Ailey and Martha Graham. The stress of not being wanted as a jazz artist brought on a rocky road of anxiety and alcoholism, but in the 1990’s he resurfaced on the Joe Franklin Show to let his fans know he was still here. Paul Knopf’s discography includes vinyl releases such as Knopfian Jazz, the Outcat Comes Back and the Enigma of a Day; CD Releases such as Collage and Through it All, as well as digital download EP releases titled: Jazz You Can Feel Volume one and Jazz You Can Feel Volume 2. Paul Knopf was also a featured subject in a documentary titled Bohemia the Life of a New York City Poet. Paul Knopf will be 90 years old in a few months and he shows no signs of slowing down, he does a podcast called the Outcat Show, he performs regularly, and his new jazz piano solo single Pressed Flowers is out now.

“INDEPENDENCE DAY”, THE FOURTH SINGLE BY SINGER-SONGWRITER AMARU

AMARU-Press-Release-Promo-Pic

“INDEPENDENCE DAY”, THE FOURTH SINGLE BY SINGER-SONGWRITER AMARU
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

It’s the story of the relationship he never had with his biological father… AMARU returns with his new joint “Independence Day”! But don’t expect gloom, because this track will make you shake both your brain AND your booty!

While he looks back on very fond childhood memories, AMARU has always felt that there was “something missing”. Despite the fact that he had a wonderful stepfather and father figure in his life, he couldn’t help but to wonder “what if” and “why”. Moving to Europe in the early 90’s provided him with the opportunity to meet his biological father and to try to establish a relationship with him. That proved to be a massive undertaking, as this man wasn’t really interested in maintaining a relationship with AMARU.

A phone call or an email perhaps… AMARU waited for years, to no avail. In the end he had to face the facts and so he decided to turn misfortune into fortune and write about this part of his life. “Back in 2008, when I started to write this song, I had a melody in my head that went perfectly with the first line of the chorus “Without integrity there can’t be love”, AMARU recalls. “After that, the rest of the lyrics and the melody just came to me and within hours I had finished a brand new song!”, he continues. It would take him 8 years however to actually produce the song and release it as a single! “Independence Day”, AMARU’s fourth single, is a song about letting go, to be liberated of feelings of discontent and sadness, to open oneself up for the promise of a new day, something that everybody can relate to. “While the song has a very deep meaning for me, one may also consider this song a break-up song between two lovers”, AMARU says. “And that’s my intention in my songwriting, the double meaning of words and how different people interpret them”.

AMARU’s “Independence Day” is widely available on all major digital platforms, while the music video can be viewed on his website or on his official channels on Youtube and Vimeo.

Indie pop singer-songwriter Giselle releases new music video for “My Heart Goes…”

MyHeartGoes_017

Indie pop singer-songwriter Giselle releases new music video for “My Heart Goes…”
Indie pop singer-songwriter Giselle, who has opened for Jordin Sparks and wrote and sang several songs on Season 5 of the Emmy award winning FX comedy “Louie,” has released her brand new music for “My Heart Goes…,” the new single off her debut EP “Change Me.” To view the video, go to her YouTube channel.

Directed by Mason Beggs (who regularly directs for Art House in New Jersey and teaches at The New School in New York City), the video can be described as a trailer park fantasy. Backed by the vocals of Gisele, “My Heart Goes…” is about the feelings of innocent love and infatuation and the sense of not being able to communicate that. It’s a fun, carefree song with a modern 60s vibe.

Giselle has performed at top-tier venues including Carnegie Hall, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall and Mercury Lounge and her music is available on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon.

About Giselle

Giselle was born in Miami, FL to Cuban immigrants. Her family’s taste in predominantly Latin music, jazz, & oldies, combined with her own love of classical music and pop culture inspired her music evolution. Giselle became immersed with music, taking private lessons in voice and various instruments. A voice teacher gave Giselle her first ticket to the opera Tosca, which fueled her passion to pursue operatic training and ultimately led to her pursuit of a vocal performance degree at a conservatory Miami, FL. Feeling caged in by the academic environment, Giselle packed her bags and moved to New York City.

Her vocal style evolved as she began charting new territories as a songwriter. After a chance meeting with mixing and audio engineer Adam Tilzer during a recording session, Giselle began working on her debut EP, “Change Me.” Tilzer is the engineer for the Emmy award winning FX comedy “Louie” and on the first day of recording the music for Season 5, Adam overheard Louis C.K. ask for an opera singer. Giselle received a phone call from Adam to be at Avatar Studios. Afterwards, she was asked to come back and sing and write an array of genres on five episodes of Season 5.

Giselle narrowed her focus to songwriting and assisting Tilzer with the production of her original music in order to bring her creative vision to life. “Change Me” combines her confidence and emotional intellect with her diverse abilities as a vocalist. The release of her debut EP “Change Me” is a rebuff to all the attempts to alter her as an artist and an illustration of her evolution as a person and musician.

Dangerous Song

BONNIE-JENKINS-1725

Dangerous Song
Dangerous Song
Linsey Pollak – animal calls (played with WX5 midi wind controller)
Lizzie O’Keefe – voice

Dangerous Song combines the human voice with the sounds of endangered and extinct animals to create an intriguing and moving musical performance. This musical collaboration between Linsey and Lizzie began in January 2015 with a strong musical rapport creating a new musical language with structured, yet very free improvisation at its core. Linsey plays animal calls using a midi wind controller where breath, lip pressure and fingering control real animal call samples. Lizzie joins him, weaving her voice in and out of the musical landscape of animal sounds. This musical journey takes us to a world of sound where the human and the animal combine. A sort of sonic morphing.

Linsey Pollak
……… is well known all around Australia as a musician, instrument maker, composer, musical director and community music facilitator. He has toured his solo shows extensively in Europe, Nth America and Asia since 1996. He has also performed at most major Festivals around Australia and recorded 32 albums (solo & with various groups). He has devised many large Festival pieces such as “BimBamBoo!! (Woodford and Brisbane Festivals) “Sound Forest” (Qld Music Festival) and “The Dream of Zedkat Nabu” (APRA Performance of the Year – Qld 2013).
Linsey has a reputation for making and playing instruments made from found objects such as rubber gloves, carrots, watering cans, chairs, brooms and bins. First developed in his solo show “Bang it with a Fork” and further in the acclaimed children’s show “Out of the Frying Pan”, this line of musical inventiveness has ultimately led him to spearhead Live Looping and develop his solo shows such as “Knocking on Kevin’s Door”, “Playpen”, “The Art of Food”, “Making Jam”, “Cycology” and “Live & Loopy”.
Linsey’s current musical projects include his solo show “Live & Loopy”, World music duo “Dva” with Tunji Beier, exciting new duo project with singer Lizzie O’Keefe – “Dangerous Song” and the Community Balkan Gypsy style street band “The Unusual Suspects”.

Lizzie O’Keefe
Moving elegantly through jazz, folk, classical and Middle Eastern styles, Lizzie O’Keefe is a dynamic and commanding vocalist. Studying opera, classical and jazz from an early age, Lizzie has developed a completely unique signature style. She has lived and performed in Australia, Indonesia and the UK. During this time she has recorded with the Mitchell and Dewbury Band (Brighton), Jazzanova (Berlin), Razoof (Cologne) and Drumagick (Brazil). Whilst living in Indonesia she formed the duo Paramitsha, releasing a self titled EP in 2013. The project pulled on many strains of world music, from flamenco, Arabic and jazz to folk and classical. Having returned to Australia early 2013, Lizzie is now based in Maleny, QLD and is quickly gaining recognition throughout the upper echelons of the Australian music industry. The release of her debut solo EP Leaden Heart in mid 2014, cast Lizzie into the spotlight with the title track making her a finalist in the jazz category for the 2015 Queensland Music Awards.

I’m not sure I have the words to describe the sublime music that emanates from the amazing partnership of Linsey Pollak and Lizzie O’Keeke. Their concert last night celebrated and mourned and played with the sounds of many endangered animals with live looping and voice (but oh, what a voice!). They transported us all to places around the globe.The moments of contemplative silence before the applause and the standing ovation at the end begins to tell you something of the marvels of the sound. – Tamsin Kerr 13/12/15

Honestly that was one of the most unique and beautiful shows II have ever been too. It was a true privilege to see it live and up close. This should go global! − Sam Manger 28/2/16

Thunderbird – New Music, Old School

13043404_795452293921909_1932165739432665559_n

Thunderbird – New Music, Old School
Formed in Vancouver, Canada in 2003, Thunderbird play original songs that recall the classic hard rock sound of the late 1970s and early ’80s.

Inspiration came from the entire spectrum of hard rock styles of that era. So much was going on at the time – everything from blues-rock to boogie, metal and punk. A major influence for Thunderbird has been ‘Oz Rock’, the raw and powerful sound developed by bands gigging in Australian pubs in the Seventies.

Thunderbird’s debut album, ‘What’s The Word?’ was released in 2006. The first single ‘No Prisoners’ was Number One for several weeks on online music site Boost Independent Music, and also charted in the Top 10 in Mike Cameo’s Indie Rock out of Cincinnati, Ohio.

A decade later the band – now scattered across the globe from Canada to Australia, the UK and Costa Rica! – have reunited for a follow up album and to have fun rocking out once more with songs that aim to evoke the swagger and groove of the glory days of classic rock.

Marc LaFrance (vocals) tours with Bachman & Turner and has sung on albums by Motley Crue, David Lee Roth, The Cult & many more. Rod Coogan (guitar) has played in progressive rock bands in Australia & Japan. Holding down the bottom end are veterans Rob Becker and Tim Rath on bass and Kelly Stodola, one of Vancouver’s in-demand session musicians, on drums.

Special guests on the album include singer Steve Mulry of Oz Rock band Black Label, blues/rock guitarist Steve Edmonds and jazz bassist Brendan Clarke.

‘Heavyweight’ is now available on all the major digital platforms – Amazon, iTunes, Spotify. CDBaby etc.
