Singer/Songwriter and Guitarist Mark Newman Performing Upcoming Dates in CO, NY, and MA

NY Based Blues/Americana/Roots-Rocker

Who’s Played with the Likes of John Oates, Sting, and Elvis Costello Hits the Road to Perform with Brothers Keeper, Eric Clapton Tribute with Godfrey Townsend & Friends, and More

March, 2017 (New York, NY) — Having begun the new year on a high note playing two shows in sunny California with Fred Herrera and Alex Del Zoppo, founding members of Sweetwater (The first band to rock the 1969 Woodstock festival), singer/songwriter and guitarist Mark Newman is headed into the Spring season with a new lineup of shows from West to East as he gets ready to rock Colorado, New York, and Massachusetts in the coming weeks! (Upcoming Dates and Info Below)

Although Newman has played a ton of exciting solo and full-band showcases–notably NYC’s B.B. King’s for the Delbert McClinton Birthday Show, The Space at Westbury opening for the one and only Don Felder and America on separate occasions, The Blue Note in Tokyo, Japan, The Space at Westbury opening for David Bromberg, and NYC’s Legendary Bitter End–he has also worked as sideman to so many soul, blues, and rock greats of our time like John Oates (Hall and Oates), Jim McCarty (The Yardbirds), Willy DeVille, Sam The Sham, and Sam Moore!

A New York native, Newman’s musical prowess has taken him around the world several times over, playing with an eclectic mix of noted musical talents from Sting to Elvis Costello, and Travis Tritt as well as his own solo work. A multi stringsman, Mark has mastered electric/acoustic/lap steel guitar as well as the mandolin and dobro, and with a voice reminiscent of many rock and blues men before him- it has the familiarity of an old friend yet the power and soul of many of today’s rock, soul, folk and R&B icons. For over five years, Newman and fellow songwriter Naomi Margolin have run the “Music From the Hive”  Singer/Songwriter Series, and for the past two years- “The Original Music Series” for bands, in an attempt to keep original music alive on Long Island. Newman also records and produces local artists in the Long Island/NYC area.

“Walls of Jericho,” which was released in 2010, is filled with intricate guitar work and mixed with a plethora of sounds from hard rock to a lighter more Dylanesque folk tinge, but this style comes even more to the forefront on 2015’s  “Brussels” out now on Danal Music and available via iTunes and CD Baby. The live acoustic-driven EP packs a bluesy punch reminiscent of Clapton’s “Unplugged” album through both the guitar work and raw vocal power. On the first track “Mean Season (Lucille, Lucille)”, Newman bellows “I waited til’ dawn, see if the sun will shine when you’re gone // You turn away, I just can’t stay where I don’t belong” and like many early bluesmen before him, you can hear the soulful longing and strife in his voice. With the brilliant slide-guitar work in “Dead Man’s Shoes” we’re easily transported in our minds to the West in the era of outlaws and cowboy boots, and in “Must Be A Pony” reminded about the power of a child’s enthusiasm and the efforts not to lose it as time goes by.

His most recent release, November 2016’s “Scapegoat” is yet another tune that brings Newman’s full-scale musicianship into the forefront as not only a brilliant slide-guitarist, but a gifted lyricist as well. Though a darker tale, the song itself verges more on the upbeat and danceable blues feel with a hammond organ solo that wouldn’t be out of place in The Band, The Doors, or many of the great iconic rock songs of our time. But to judge for yourself, check it out via SoundCloud HERE.

UPCOMING PERFORMANCES:

Fri. March 10th @ The Wildwood w/Brothers Keeper, Aspen, CO

Sat. April 1st @ B.B. King’s Blues Club & Grill for The 16th Annual Eric Clapton Birthday Celebration with Godfrey Townsend & Friends, New York, NY

Sat. June 10th @ The Bull Run, Shirley, MA

As he gets ready for further solo and full-band shows on the horizon in the coming weeks and months (And more with his Sailin’ Shoes – Little Feat Tribute band), make sure to catch the incredible talents of the one and only Mark Newman when he comes to a city near you!

Avant-Pop Saxophonist Daniel Bennett Invades Rockwood Music Hall on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th

Avant-Pop Saxophonist Daniel Bennett Invades Rockwood Music Hall on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th

New York saxophonist Daniel Bennett has been hailed as one of the most original and unpredictable musical voices of his generation. The Daniel Bennett Group performs a special St. Patrick’s Day CD Release at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 3) on Friday, March 17th at 8:30pm. The venue is located at 185 Orchard St, New York, NY 10002. Daniel Bennett can be heard throughout the world performing his award-winning compositions on saxophone, flute, clarinet, and oboe. Daniel Bennett plays quirky Modern Jazz, fused with elements of Surf Rock and Avant-Pop. Daniel Bennett Group will be releasing their newest album, ‘Sinking Houseboat Confusion’ (Manhattan Daylight Media) at the show. Bennett is joined by renowned guitarist Nat Janoff, master percussionist Matthew Feick and Eddy Khaimovich on electric bass. The Boston Globe describes Bennett’s music as “a mix of jazz, folk, and minimalism.” The band was recently voted “Best New Jazz Group” in New York City Hot House Magazine.

The Daniel Bennett Group has been featured in the Washington Post, Boston Globe, NPR, Indianapolis Public Radio, San Francisco Examiner, St. Louis Public Radio and the Village Voice. The Village Voice raves, “saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that’s buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich’s pastoral repetition.” Time Out New York describes the music as, “hypnotic.” Daniel Bennett studied saxophone at the prestigious New England Conservatory in Boston. During his time in Boston, Bennett performed regularly with the Portland Symphony and the New Hampshire Festival Orchestra. Bennett also toured Italy and Switzerland with renowned Boston jazz ensemble, Musaner. In addition to leading his own band, Daniel Bennett performs in Broadway and Off-Broadway theater productions in New York City. Daniel Bennett recently composed the musical score for stage adaptations of ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘Brave Smiles’ at the Hudson Guild Theatre in Manhattan. Daniel Bennett recently played woodwinds in ‘Blank! The Musical,’ the first fully improvised Off-Broadway musical to launch on a national stage. The show was produced by Second City, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Improv Boston. The New York Times called the show, “Witty, Likable and Ludicrous!” Daniel Bennett’s theatrical works have strongly influenced his eclectic sound and musical storytelling abilities as a bandleader. The Daniel Bennett Group performs every month at Tomi Jazz in midtown Manhattan. New Yorker Magazine calls Tomi Jazz, “a favorite out-of-the-way Japanese jazz club.” Daniel Bennett is an official endorsing artist for Morgan Mouthpieces.

“SHOW ME” HOW MUCH YOU LOVE UNSTRAIGHT’S FIRST SINGLE ON 2/17




“SHOW ME” HOW MUCH YOU LOVE UNSTRAIGHT’S FIRST SINGLE ON 2/17

Unstraight is delighted to release their very first single, “Show Me”, to the airwaves and Internet this January 2017, and to everyone’s eager ears and dancing feet on Friday, February 17th at Out of the Blue Gallery (541 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA) at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available for cash purchase at the door. Boston Emissions (every Sunday on WZLX) had the exclusive first play of the single, and it has been at #1 for three weeks! Listen to/love/download “Show Me” at unstraightmusic.com or listen to it under a live show video compilation at youtube.com/watch?v=j_Fg_CCVCvc.

Opening for national touring acts such as Hunter Valentine at the Middle East Downstairs, playing the Boston Dyke March and various various Prides on both coasts, and its strong social media presence have brought dedicated groups of Unstraighters to shows for over three years. As a result, this single release has been very much anticipated. Unstraight’s alternative rock with a punch of riot grrl and a splash of electronics never loses its allure–think Garbage meets Sleater-Kinney.

Unstraight strongly believes in the greater presence of women, gender-nonconforming people, and LGBTQ people in music as there is currently a dearth, and our own all-queer, all-women members as well as many of the shows we put on exemplify and push forward this goal. Our annual BIG QUEER SHOW, scheduled for Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 at Thunder Road (379 Somerville Avenue, Somerville, MA) not only features queer people in music but also works with various GLBT community groups to table and run activities to spread more awareness about what they offer. We are smashing the barriers of the often-heard “you were really good for girls” toward actual equality and a world where we are remarkable for our music and passion and not for the novelty of having women or queers onstage. At our shows, we welcome all who welcome all.

Positive Radio The New Trend

Positive Radio The New Trend

As 2017 takes grip to yet another year new trends begin to take form.Embracing the newest trend in Conscious Radio.
Could it be that in a season when hope does not seem to be a resource that society has to offer because of the past several years violence and hatred has taken humanity by storm. A trend that has lasted far too long and is deep rooted in the world as solutions to resolve are being scouted out. Especially in entertainment where lyrics seem to plague the music and violence in television games and seasonal movies. But not all is lost one conscious entertainment advocate says she saw it coming back in 2011.
Milliea Taylor McKinney is an award winning songwriter who has earned her accolades writing for the legends and superstars in Country Music. Her journey would have taken her full circle as she would have been mentored by one of R&B’s most sought after songwriter and vocalist. Grammy artist Skyler Jett. Most will recall Skyler for his contribution to the R&B Group “The Commodores”. However his fully decorated career can be viewed at www.skylerjett.com.
Skyler, mentored Milliea, that her gift as a songwriter could be better used in writing positive music.
In 2011 Milliea, took his advice and founded her first company in Conscious Music Entertainment. A platform for positive artist to learn how to break into the industry and be taken seriously. In 2012 Conscious Radio was added to her companies however until now the company had not been taken too seriously. But that has changes as most trends sneak into view so it is with the need for a positive platform that would open up their microphones to positive people making a difference. Conscious Radio offers a resource to resurrect the hope for those whose hope is limited or non existent.
Interviews are always available says’ Milliea, who welcomes authors, artist, public speakers, community leaders, and those with a positive message to share. For those interested you can reach out to Milliea, at consciousradio@writeme.com
Milliea say’s, she is excited about offering the new platform and looks forward in bringing new hope to her listeners.

Anyone fitting the discription of Gospel related projects and would like to contribute to his show can also reach out to him at divineradio@mail.com Together these positive advocates set the stage for a new vision and hope for humanity through working with those that offer the same.

Greek electronic composer Sakis Gouzonis to release new album in 2017

Greek electronic composer Sakis Gouzonis to release new album in 2017

Sakis Gouzonis has announced that he is releasing a new instrumental album in April 2017.

Soon after the release of his debut album, First Contact, Sakis established himself as one of the best Greek electronic music composers and orchestrators, astonishing critics and audience alike with the beauty, depth and maturity of his music. Since then, Sakis has released eight more albums; New Earth (2009), The Tree Of Life (2010), Ultimate Love (2011), Vast Victory (2012), Spiritual Unity (2013), Golden Heart (2014), A World At Peace (2015), and Liberating Truth (2016).

Buddy Nelson from Jamsphere in his review said that “‘Liberating Truth’ is unquestionably Sakis Gouzonis’ finest set of instrumental compositions. The music is more in-keeping with Sakis’ refined and positive side, and is possessed by an expansive, grandiose quality. He reaches towards shimmering and rapturous heights with his keyboard tones, while the rhythms gallop along with enchanting splendor.”

Sakis’ tenth instrumental electronic album will be available via his website, www.sakisgouzonis.com, on 17 April 2017.
