Samuel Lavon

First off let me just say thank you for spending the time to read this out of your busy day because I’m sure you guys receive tons of demo submissions daily. No matter the outcome I still appreciate your willingness to listen to my music submission.

I am an R&B singer. My name is Samuel Childers, but my artist name is Samuel Lavon. I grew up in a small town called Statesboro, GA. It has always been my dream to be a singer, unfortunately growing up my parents did not have the money for me to go to each and every audition and no major auditions were coming to Statesboro, GA. I used to always sing around the house and really had no idea how I was going to make this dream come true considering I’m a country boy from the backwoods of Georgia.

Once I became eighteen years old in 2004, I decided to leave home and move to Atlanta in hopes of actually making my dreams come true, needless to say that didn’t work out. Being in a city where singers, models, actors, and rappers are a dime a dozen, I just became another person lost in pool of people with the same dreams. After living there for about 4 years, I decided to move back home to Statesboro, GA. I stayed home for about 2 years and then ended up moving to Austin, TX.

When I moved to Austin everything seemed to work itself out, I found someone to teach me how to write songs, and then that person gave me a list of up and coming producers. I called that whole list and only one person called me back. His name is Kris Keyz, he recorded my first song, “Representative” and I have been recording with him for 5 years now. I do feel I have grown as an artist tremendously considering where I came from.

I do everything on my on, I have no team, I write and sing my own songs. I am sure you all hear these stories all the time. I’m just hoping you all can hear the passion in my music. I’m very passionate about it. I understand that everyone won’t like everything I do or even understand what I’m doing, I just hope that you guys can see the vision I have with this music. I have the drive and I’m more determined than I ever thought I could be. Thanks again for reading and listening. Enjoy.

Karina Nistal Band

11x17_Poster

Karina Nistal Band

Singer/songwriter Karina Nistal is known to align herself with diverse and solid collaborations to showcase her extensive range. Her work consists of emotive jazz vocals on downtempo tracks, rapping in Spanish for the worldly sounds of reggaeton, or fusing soulful Latin vocals with lively dance music. Most significantly, it is a vibrant charisma that carries over her poetic musings in either English or Spanish, or her self-assured flirtatious rhymes. There’s a very fine line between poetry and rap, but it’s one that only Karina interconnects with finesse.
Music captivated the native Houstonian at an early age. Karina indulged in old school hip hop, rhythm & blues, soul and jazz. It was Karina’s mixed Latin heritage (Mexican and Cuban) that spotlighted traditional to modern styles.
After several years of featuring on numerous Dance and Hip Hop releases, Karina made her first full-length bilingual debut album, Nistyle (Starlightbeats) which introduced the term “Reggaetron” (Electro-Reggaeton). Nistyle gives a fresh face to the growing “hurban” dance scene and earned Karina various accomplishments including an Armed Forces tour in the Middle East to provide support and morale for our troops.
The following year, the video for her single “Viviendo” premiered internationally on MUN² bilingual video network. Meanwhile The Karina Nistal Band performed festivals all over the southern region including the SXSW Music Festival and made a local television appearance on the Mayor’s Tree-lighting Celebration – KHOU Houston.
Backed by her band, Karina is also a Houston Press Award winner for “Best Local Hip Hop” & “Best Latin Contemporary”. Her sophomore album, Nistalgia (L.O.V.E. Records) was released independently on October 2010. Nistalgia carries her Latin Fusion sound with a mixture of Soul, Hip Hop and a few hot Dance remixes.
After relocating to Los Angeles that spring, Karina began working on a few new projects. The first album released in LA was KaRAGEous which won an “Akademia Award” for her video “Different”. Karina also became an ambassador for the fastest growing inspirational network #Besomebody. Karina turned to her fans to launch the first then second successful Kickstarter campaigns to fund both projects: first KaRAGEous and then Living Proof. Her latest album is receiving international radio play and raving reviews from listeners all over.
Karina continues performing with live musicians, recording singles, making videos, collaborating with various artists, acting and recording commercial voice-overs. This year she performed on a tour in Japan sponsored by Soul Central Magazine. Karina’s second single “Wiser” from her latest Living Proof was just released along with a fun and vibrant colored 360° technology video. Look out for new musical collaborations and performances from Karina including more tour dates including a SuperBowl show this coming February 4th, 2017 in her hometown of Houston.
With seemingly a lot on her plate, the sultry, multi-faceted vocalist admits, “I want to do so much more!”

Seesar

Seesar-Avatar

Seesar

The Seesar project constructs dark ambient soundscapes using unnameable timbres and disconcerting, uncanny rhythms and melodies to evoke the fear and dread expressed within the works of H. P. Lovecraft and other authors of Mythos fiction. More specifically, Seesar draws from Italian Futurism and Dadaist aesthetics, embracing the sounds of modern society that embody the end of world as it was seen around the turn of the 20th Century. It is a fitting incorporation as it parallels Lovecraft’s manifestation of modernism as Cosmic Doom.

In part, Seesar accomplishes this realization of darkness by performing on scrap metal, turning household items into musical instruments, and building new noise-making devices to generate unique sonic additions. Employing textures provided by the inclusion of traditional musical instruments from various cultures from around the World are also part of Seesar’s music, removing it further from the listeners’ familiarity and expectations and thus deepening the connection to the unknown.

Seesar is typically a solo project by percussionist Will Connor, but occasionally extends to invite guest musicians of like-minded musical goals and appreciation for Lovecraft, in order to present new, unheard disturbing passages, only made possible through these collaborations.

By using these approaches, techniques, instruments, and sounds, Seesar performs and composes pieces that pay homage to and recreate feelings cultivated within the literary genius of Lovecraft and other tales of the Cthulhu Mythos.

Currently, Seesar has appeared on several compilations of dark ambient music, released full-length CDs on Dagon Records, and the UK label Sombre Soniks, and has toured extensively through the UK, Europe, and the US. Upcoming Seesar projects include two more solo CD releases in 2017, collaborations as part of the New Leaders of the Eldritch Cult collective, supporting percussion for Tamerlan’s , duet tracks with Kotodama, Cementimental, Anton Mobin, and more, as well as continued sound design with Dread Falls Theatre. Connor works and lives in Portland, OR, US with his library of Lovecraftian tomes, and untold numbers of unusual musical instruments.

New Lovecraft Inspired Project Unites Futurist Musicians from Around the World via New Leaders of the Eldritch Cult

NLotEC-Art-of-Eldritch-Noise-CD-Front-Cover

New Lovecraft Inspired Project Unites Futurist Musicians from Around the World via New Leaders of the Eldritch Cult

23 November, 2016 (Portland, OR, USA) The trend in the arts to embrace the works of H. P. Lovecraft as a source of inspiration has spawned a new movement, Lovecraftian Futurism. This recent artistic direction merges aesthetics drawn from Italian Futurism of the early 20th Century with those of the dark, foreboding narratives of Mythos-related literature and film. One of the groups spearheading this art movement is a collective of creatives whose members are spread throughout the world, called the New Leaders of the Eldritch Cult.
This conglomeration consists of directors, actors, visual artists, writers, and more, but is primarily made up of composers and performers of dark ambient music. With members residing in Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South America, the U.K., the U.S., and more, the New leaders of the Eldritch Cult genuinely span the globe.
Dagon Records, following their relocation from London, UK, to Portland, Oregon, US, has chosen to make their first release out of their new home city a CD for the New Leaders of the Eldritch Cult. The album features Dagon Records artists, as well as some from New York’s Alrealon Records, and from sister-label Sombre Soniks, based in the U.K. The title of the CD appropriately describes the creative movement in one phrase: The Art of Eldritch Noise, referencing Luigi Russolo’s call for musicians to embrace Futurist sensibilities, then tying the release almost directly to Lovecraft, who is sometimes referred to as “the master of eldritch horror”. The release features various experimental performers, including Arcaide (FR), Babalith (PT), Druhá Smrt (CZ), and Hell is Carbon, Benjamin Norman Pierce, The Strange Walls, and Seesar (US). All tracks are collaborations, and the sounds on CD are created using electronics, extended techniques on traditional instruments, or performances on homemade instruments and household items re-purposed for the making of the music on the release.
“We are very proud to be supporting this important and cutting-edge movement of Lovecraftian Futurism; and we are extremely pleased with the results of the collaboration between these amazing artists!” says Will Connor, spokesperson for Dagon Records. “This, too, is only the beginning. Dagon Records has plans to release approximately three New Leaders soundscape collections each year, as long as they want to work with us.”
The Art of Eldritch Noise was released digitally on the 23rd of November, 2016, with a physical CD of the album slated to be available and distributed in Spring of 2017. For more information on the New Leaders of the Eldritch Cult, including the movement’s manifesto for music-makers, visit: http://www.facebook.com/NLotEC The digital version of the Art of Eldritch Noise is available here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/newleadersoftheeldritchc

DREAM_CATCHER_JACKET

Katie Ferrara

Katie Ferrara is a Folk/Pop artist from Los Angeles, CA. Making regular appearances at the 3rd Street Santa Monica Promenade, Melrose Trading Post, Downtown Burbank, and various farmer’s markets in Los Angeles, Katie has carved a name for herself in the streets of her hometown as a “busker” or street performer.

Becoming known in LA is only a small piece of the puzzle Katie has created for herself. Free spirited, ambitious, and self-reliant, she travels the world through music, writing about her experiences in song form. She has toured nationally to festivals including SXSW and internationally, to several countries including the UK, Italy and New Zealand. It was last year that Katie’s talents were discovered in the 2015 “Feeling the Street” competition after being selected as one of the winners on Facebook. The online show, sponsored by TOYOTA, is a global search for the world’s best buskers who must band together to create music on an epic road trip.

Katie’s new release called “Dream Catcher” reflects the hard work and dedication it takes to make it as an artist in Los Angeles. The 6 track folk-pop EP, lyrically reflects the conflict between following one’s own passions and the security of being in a relationship. It is an inspirational album for anyone who has the desire to follow their dreams. Katie’s charming, yet sultry vocals will definitely pull you in and and make you want to stay forever.

Kevin Wood

3AlbumCoversKevinWood

Kevin Wood

“My intention is to make meaningful music that helps people feel good. On a deeper level, I write music that helps the listener feel oneness. . . with humanity, with the earth, with nature, with all that there is; to help people feel more connected and joyful. My music offers spiritual themes that invites the listener to enter a journey into something deeper, a beautiful and mystical place not yet seen, nor heard,” said Wood.

Kevin Wood is an award-winning independent artist/composer who has sold over 85,000 of his three New Age/World albums and 1 million nature sounds tracks (from nature albums that have reached #1 on iTunes New Age, #7 on Billboard and #1 on Rhapsody New Age). He is also a producer and a music promoter for other highly renowned New Age artists.

Awards and Recognition

Kevin’s most recent and third album release, KINDRED, which was debuted at the Deepak Chopra “Seduction of Spirit” meditation training in Austin, Texas, offers a strong World flavor that complements his conventional compositional style. For this album, chants from all over the globe are seamlessly woven with modern grooves and ethereal sounds. Kindred earned “Best Meditation/Relaxation” album of the year from Zone Music Reporter (ZMR). Music from this album was included, along with David and Diane Arkenstone, in “The Seasons” DVD from the Yosemite Natl Park series by EMMY award-winning film maker Sterling Johnson, whose DVDs are featured on PBS.

Wood’s second album, SACRED, is a truly unique project whereby Wood combined Native American chant with Gregorian chant along with his eclectic, mood altering music. Wood’s writing for both albums has turned toward the World genre as he has artistically evolved, particularly influenced by visits to various Native American sites across the American Southwest. Wood has been honored with American Indians offering their chants for his music projects, which has made his songs feel more “meaningful, interesting, and connected,” said Wood. “Sacred” earned Wood #2 “World Album of the Year” from Backroads Music and “Best New Age Album” of the year by the Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR).

Music Career

In music, he’s a composer, a producer, a keyboard player, a drummer, a promoter, an entrepreneur and an active manager of his artist-owned record label, New Vision Music and promotion company, New Vision Promotion. Wood runs New Vision Promotion, which offers radio and retail promotion for New Age/Instrumental artists. He has promoted a number of accomplished artists within his genre including Grammy nominees David Lanz, Phil Coulter, Paul Avgerinos, and renowned artists Stanton Lanier, Michael Whalen, Al Jewer, Jeff Pearce, Jami Sieber and Brian Crain. In 2014 Wood produced a benefit album, Music That Matters, which includes 36 tracks from 36 genre-leading artists, including 9 GRAMMY nominated artists.

Background

The path to living his dream began early. Trained in classical piano and percussion since age 8, Wood was heavily influenced by conventionally structured music – a style that affected him and served him well within the New Age genre. Kevin went on to win music composition competitions in high school using his now-classic synthesizer, the Roland Juno 106, and then host a New Age music radio show while in college.

Other Pursuits

Outside of music, Wood is a father, a husband, a Unity church member and usher, a real estate investor, and even a spare time inventor. “Above all, I love to create, and I really try to go where my heart leads. I deeply believe if you follow your true passions . . . your calling, and work hard at it, you will be well served and be in a better space to serve others too.” said Wood.

Deborah Crooks

Deborah Crooks

I’m reaching out about Bay are based singer-songwriter Deborah Crooks new CD “Beauty Everywhere”(Release date: Oct. 18th 2016). Following Deborah Crooks’ March 2016 release Go Out And Make Some, with Bay Station, her duo project with Kwame Copeland, Crooks went right back to work laying down the finishing touches on her solo CD. While keeping musically in step with the Americana-esque approach with Bay Station, the songwriting on Beauty Everywhere leans more towards the personal, with songs covering the middle of a relationship (“Jumped in Anyway”), the end of a love relationship (“Record of a Day”), and moving into a new home (“Make this House”). Topics also explored are the impact of these uncertain times upon others, on (“Shattered”), about the lengths someone will go to put the pieces back together after their world falls apart, as well as the familial consequences faced by veterans of war (“Overseas and Faraway”). Beauty Everywhere was produced and arranged by Art Khu (Jacqui Naylor, Art Khu Quartet) and recorded at John Vanderslice’s newly opened Tiny Telephone Oakland (an off-shoot of Vanderslice’s renowned analog based Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco).

We would love you to consider reviewing Deborah’s new album.
