R ‘n’ B singer Wayne Marshall releases new LP ‘3rd Visit To The Bedroom’

The R ‘n’ B singer known as Wayne Marshall has released his latest LP record, titled, “3rd Visit To The Bedroom,” to the uniform delight of critics and fans alike. It has been published on the Love Making Music record label. It is comprised of 12 all new and original tracks for an approximate total playing time of 45 minutes. It is a deeply romantic album with intimate themes and erotic undertones, all of which Marshall sings about in his exquisite and precise style over relaxing back beats and the occasional piano.

The evocative title of Marshall’s “3rd Visit To The Bedroom” is plainly spoken and suggestive of what the album portends, but it has a deeper, less obvious meaning.

“It raises the question,” Wayne Marshall writes, “if a male player visits the same female’s bedroom three times in a row, does it mean he has quit the dating game and has finally fallen in love?”

Marshall lists as his main artistic influences the likes of legends such as Burt Bacarach, Stevie Wonder, Mavado, R-Kelly, and Bob Marley. Of these, all are exhibited in Marshall’s style and writing on “3rd Visit To The Bedroom,” and there is a lightheartedness throughout the record that certainly recalls the high-spirited work of Marley and other such performers. Marshall’s previous releases have been far more reggae-inspired, however, “3rd Visit” being an R ‘n’ B record of the highest caliber.

Marshall’s accolades are many, and read like a shopping list of grand accomplishments. He was 1995’s Black Music Award Winner for Best Single, Best Album, Best Newcomer, and Best Male Artist. His 1996 duet with Pauline Henry, “Never Knew Love Like This,” was a Top 40 National hit and no. 15 in the Music Week dance chart, released on Sony Records. “Your G Spot” reached the Top 30 National U.K. list and was number one for 12 weeks in the Urban Street Chart with sales upwards of 80,000. 1995’s “Spirit and Slow Grind” was a Top 40 National hit and no.1 on the Urban Street Chart for 3 weeks. Over 50,000 were sold.

Wayne Marshall’s reggae career has been storied and remarkably successful as well, but his new R ‘n’ B album is sure to turn heads around the world.

“3rd Visit To The Bedroom,” by Wayne Marshall, is available online worldwide beginning spring 2013.

Shelia Moore releases new LP record ‘Tha Story Told Twice According To Shee Shee Vol.1’

The artist of rhythm ‘n’ blues gospel music known as Shelia Moore has released her newest LP record, titled, “Tha Story Told Twice According To Shee Shee Vol.1,” to rave critical and fan reviews. The album has been published by the Bdm / Ugroove Music record label. It is comprised of 17 new and original tracks for more than an hour’s worth of excellent listening. In addition to Shelia Moore’s own gorgeous, sparkling vocals, “Tha Story Told Twice…” also features the towering talents of Liz Vaughn, Shei Atkins, Allegro Adams, and the Knuckle Headz. Moore’s music is spiritually inspired, and every song on this, her most spectacular work to date, has its heart and soul in unwavering faith and praise of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

 

Moore deals with these themes directly and with endless finesse. Her voice is soft, feminine, and guided by her impeccable ear and good taste. Her range is exceeded only by her precision. She is never guilty of being showy, or of oversouling. “Tha Story Told Twice…” stretches over a variety of styles, often utilizing jazz and soul undertones, sometimes dealing in groovy offerings of funk with light smatterings of Motown and disco, and occasionally visiting the hip-hop genre. All in all, the record is exceptional listening, incredibly well orchestrated and produced, and represents a fantastic introduction for the public to this astounding, inspirational singer.

 

Concerning the topics of her music, Moore herself writes, “Music is a ministry, and it is my ministry.”

 

Moore’s faith cannot be overstated. Her songs have titles such as “Give Praise,” “God Is Love,” and “Call Him,” classic names that could easily appear in any Southern Baptist hymnal. She deals with mature, contemporary and complicated Christian issues in these tracks, however, such as premarital sex, and unwavering faith in the face of seemingly untenable adversity.

 

She writes her music in collaboration with husband and fellow musician, Glenn “GP” Piper, whose own, ingenious tonal craftsmanship is braided throughout the record.

 

“As an artist,” Moore writes, I want my music to uplift and inspire. Through the years the sound of gospel music has evolved to speak to new generations; however, the message remains the same: Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Light. It is my desire that all people know Jesus Christ of Nazareth perfects that which concerns us, and to encourage everyone to build a strong spiritual connection to the higher power that is He.”

 

“Tha Story Told Twice According To Shee Shee Vol.1” by Shelia Moore is available online worldwide.

M.A.C. releases new LP ‘Dream’

The music group from Washington state known as M.A.C. have released their newest LP record album, titled, “Dream,” to widespread critical and fan acclaim. It is being released on the Planet 3 Jams record label. “Dream” is comprised of 19 new, original tracks mainly falling in the popular subgenre of electronic dance music called dubstep, though M.A.C. is known for deviating from standard norms when they see fit, resulting in some surprising and delightfully unique compositions. “Dream” is the most significant and anxiously awaited record from M.A.C. to date, and represents an excellent introduction to this ambitious, creative music trio.

M.A.C. stands for Many Are Connected, and is the collaboration of Roc Omega, Andy Cantrell, and Chris S., who are based in Marysville, WA. Their music is characterized by the digitally rendered, industrial overtone and mood that acts as the mainstay of dubstep music, blanketed over aggressive back beats and bass lines that make for excellent dance music, both for personal listening and a club atmosphere.

Regarding the themes of “Dream,” M.A.C. wax poetic. They write simply, “No music, no life. Close your eyes, feel the vibrations, love the feeling.”

This direct relationship with their music is an attribute than runs throughout their new record. M.A.C. is a cult of music worshipers. They revel in their sound. They play in it, live in it. Upon being asked to describe their musical inspirations and main artistic influences, they reply, “Nature, life, the human eardrum, touch, laughter, smiles, and all musical artists and the likes of.”

The album itself is accessible to fans of dubstep and newcomers alike, and is certain to be one of a series of such albums from this up-and-coming powerhouse crew. They promise to publish three additional records in the wake of “Dream.”

“This is our world, so open your mind,” they like to say, meaning that the inhabitants of planet Earth would benefit from a broader understanding of the place we all call home.

“Our goal is only to get the music out,” they write, “to have everyone open their minds and see what they are already a part of. This is our world, it’s time to step inside.”

“Dream” by M.A.C. is available online worldwide beginning spring of 2013.

Rockers Asvatta release debut LP ‘Danger! High Noise Levels!’

The good-time rock ‘n’ roll ensemble known as Asvatta have released their new flagship LP record album, titled, “Danger! High Noise Levels!” The album contains ten new, original tracks for a total running time of approximately 35 minutes’ worth of entirely enjoyable rock music played deep in the groove and with a healthy charge of adrenaline. It is the maiden release of Asvatta, who have orchestrated the production of “Danger! High Noise Levels!” without the help or guidance of music industry representatives, resulting in a collection of absolutely independent songs played purely for the sake of their own sound as Asvatta has seen fit.

This sound is more striking than one might think. Asvatta is a powerhouse little trio in the tradition of Nirvana, Grand Funk Railroad, and other bands who have helped to prove that the right chemistry and musical principles can create a sonic wall that will knock a music fan flat. Their actual sound is hard to nail down, however. There are elements of classic rock, glam rock, metal, and pop rock in Asvatta, but really their tones are their own.

Their vocals are raw and excellent (see “3rd Degree”), their drums solid and driving, their guitars tasteful, soaring, and razor sharp, and as songwriters, their genius is plain to hear. They only record music they’d personally like to listen to, and this seemingly obvious philosophy leads “Danger! High Noise Levels!” to a place music fans will be excited to wind up, as the volume rises and the comic title becomes a literal disclaimer.

Concerning the themes of their record, Asvatta writes, “The album’s lyrics deal with relationships, politics, partying, unrequited love, stalkers, cultural decadence, and the zombie apocalypse.”

Clearly, they have a sterling sense of humor, too.

They name as main artistic influences (respectively) Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Reef, The James Gang, Styx, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, The Flys, Dishwalla, The Academy Is, Hot Hot Heat, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Matchbox Twenty, INXS, Maroon 5, Disturbed, and White Zombie.

If one can believe it, there is a little piece of every one of these legends in Asvatta, too, and the combination is sensationally delightful, heavy-hitting, and fun, fun, fun. If by the end of the record the listener has not yet fallen in love with this endlessly talented, quirky band, then he or she is invited to visit their official website to view their official LP release video, in which they introduce themselves personally and speak to the public from their couch in the most candid and amusing way imaginable.

“Danger! High Noise Levels!” is available online worldwide beginning spring 2013.

Christian rocker Nick Higgins releases new LP ‘No Laughing Matter’

The rock ‘n’ roll hometown hero known as Nick Higgins has released his debut collection of original songs, titled, “No Laughing Matter.” The record contains eleven new tracks for an approximate total of 43 minutes’ worth of high-quality rock music by Higgins, himself. The record is ostensibly an upbeat, immediately enjoyable album with positive overtones and a continuous, catchy groove, but its title bespeaks a more serious intent. It is also a powerful and ambitious charity endeavor on the part of Higgins to raise money and awareness about illicit sex trafficking in the burgeoning black market of human slavery.

In spite of this weighty subject matter – which by no means is the only theme of the record, it being mainly an album of praise songs and material related to the Christian Bible – Higgins manages to make an incredibly lighthearted and delightful set. His youthful and jubilant sense of humor runs rampant throughout the tracks and can easily be observed at any random moment throughout the album. He does not stoop to melodrama, and neither does he take himself too seriously. In fact, the only topics Higgins seems to take seriously at all are his Lord the Christian God, and his personal crusade against slavery, yet even in these his earnestness and clever songwriting allow him to have an awful lot of fun doing so.

He names as main artistic influences the likes of Foo Fighters, Weezer, Lenny Kravitz, and Captain Geech & The Shrimp Shack Shooters, all of whom exhibit elements to be found in his own music, particularly the pop style of song composition and certain similar guitar tones.

Regarding his mission, he writes in his own likeable, personable voice, “This album is 100% to raise money and awareness about human sex trafficking. I had often heard about human trafficking, but didn’t think much about it until I saw the movie ‘Taken.’ I thought, ‘There is no way that stuff is really going on, right?’ After doing some research I found that 27 million people are currently under forced slavery right now. I wanted to do something. I do not ‘possess a special set of skills’ like Liam Neeson’s character in the movie, and I can’t single-handedly take down a trafficking ring. I’m a horrible shot.

But, I had a bunch of church songs I had been planning to record, and decided to record this album and give all the proceeds to an organization that fights human sex trafficking.”

The actual production of the record is surprising to learn about, also, when one considers the high quality of the the finished product.

“I played all the instruments on this album and recorded just about everything in the morning hours between 6-8am. It was a sacrifice, but well worth it.”

In summing up his aims with “No Laughing Matter,” Higgins proclaims in his absolutely serious, yet characteristically jovial way, “Something must be done to fight this great injustice!”

“No Laughing Matter” by Nick Higgins is available online worldwide beginning spring 2013.

Singer-songwriter Rick Slinkard releases new single ‘I Feel Your Heart’

The singer and songwriter from San Diego, CA, known as Rick Slinkard has released his latest single, titled, “I Feel Your Heart.” The song is an intensely heartfelt track that reaches out to the persons who have been affected by the torments of war around the world. It is a ballad of romance set against a tragic background of modern catastrophe that brings tears to the eyes and a knot in the throat. It is also a declaration of the triumph of the human spirit that prevails in times of chaos and destruction to lift love, life, and undying mutual affection to heights no worldly machinations can pursue.

The song itself is composed for piano and vocals with string accompaniment, and features in addition to Slinkard’s own warm, natural singing voice the talents of Astra Kelly, who plays a charming role in the success of the song. An instrumental version of “I Feel Your Heart” is also available.

Speaking firsthand of the themes that guide the single, Slinkard writes, “’I Feel Your Heart’ is about the romantic love found in a young couple who find themselves pulled apart by the trauma of war. It will resonate with a first responder or military family.”

Though this may seem like dark pretenses for a love song, Slinkard’s is not a pessimistic track at all. He continues, “I believe that true love endures separation and even death. It provides hope for eternal life. ‘I Feel Your Heart’ may be played at weddings, funerals and offer comfort to families.“

Sheet music for his song has also been made available.

Slinkard names as main artistic influences legends such as The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Bonnie Raitt, and Ray LaMontagne. He dropped out of high school to tour with his band, but ended up with a master’s degree in MFT psychology, anyhow. His personal history with warfare informs his decision to write “I Feel Your Heart.”

“My dad survived two airplane crashes in WWII,” he says, “and my older brother, the Vietnam War. ‘I Feel Your Heart,’ was just a tune in my head for 10 years. I found myself singing it on walks, from deep inside my soul. I took a picture of my 90-year-old mother listening to the song for the first time wearing headphones, and I honor her with the cover photo. I hope it will comfort you, as well.”

“I Feel Your Heart,” by Rick Slinkard, is available online worldwide beginning spring 2013.
