Rapper Sir releases new single ‘Till I Fall’

The rapper, songwriter and producer of hip hop known only as Sir has released his latest single track, “Till I Fall.” The track has been proudly released under the independent Young Society Music Group label. Indomitable, melodic, with a powerful back beat and moments of great intensity, “Till I Fall” is easily one of the best pop tracks to come from an independent rapper in quite some time.

Sir cites as main artistic influences a broad array of pop and hip-hop stars including Drake, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, the Notorious B.I.G., Eminem, Nas, Canibus, Clip Heatwood, Slick Rick, and Michael Jackson. A particularly eloquent master of the mic, Sir’s lyrics are deliberate and concise, chosen for sound, rhythm and meaning in equal measures.

“I started off managing a rap group by the name of Young Society,” writes Sir of his start in hip hop. “After realizing that my true gift was being behind the mic and impacting people from the stage, I decided to turn to the life of recording and performing.”

A man of great drive and personal direction, Sir’s music has always been about improving the world around him. Though the power and groove of “Till I Fall” stand out as clear priorities for the artist, it is the reason underpinning the track with which Sir is chiefly interested.

Speaking of these themes, Sir comments, “My music gives people looking for a way to express how they feel about today’s society (music, media, etc.) a voice to be heard, received by the masses. ‘Till I Fall’ speaks for those who have smelled, tasted, and experienced success and the things that happen while being at the top of their respected fields. There are going to be people that enjoy seeing you be the best … however, there are also always going to be people who want to see you fall. ‘Till I Fall’ speaks about going until you fall while planning to never do so.”

Sir was born Sir William Christopher Alexander in Jacksonville, FL. He has been honing his craft since the age of 13.

“Till I Fall” by Sir is available online worldwide.

La ‘ Vega releases new single ‘Kill’em’ on MVB Ent.

The rapper and songwriter of hip hop known as La ‘ Vega has released her new, highly awaited single to much critical and fan acclaim. The track has been proudly published on the MVB Entertainment Music Group LLC independent record label. MVB has been spearheading their recent efforts with the seemingly endless amount of hip hop coming from La ‘ Vega over the last few months.

These MVB Ent. releases from La ‘ Vega have included October 2014’s “Nappy” single, November 2014’s “Tipsy” single, and her crowning achievement, the “Best of La ‘ Vega 2014 [#Work]” full-length record, for which she has garnered a considerable global fan base. Cool, feminine, and as explosively direct as her fans have come to expect, “Kill’em” is the new year’s best reason to get into La ‘ Vega for fans of hip hop everywhere.

To describe La ‘ Vega’s signature sound is not as simple as listing other hip-hop stars with whom she shares similarities. Still, such comparisons are unavoidable. Like the music of Nitty Scott MC, Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown, the NYC-born La ‘ Vega takes her groove and attitude from the New York hip-hop tradition, where the music style was born more than three decades ago.

With less than two months on MVB Ent.’s official YouTube channel, “Kill’em” by La ‘ Vega has already racked up approximately 30,000 views with hardly any marketing at all. Her official video for June of ’14, “The Girl You Like,” has surpassed 125,000 views and shows no sign of slowing down.

MVB Ent. has, to date, published more than 30 singles from La ‘ Vega and is likely to drop a great many more by her before too long, if her quick rise to prominence in 2014 is any sign, but this latest single is of particular note for its especial high quality, even in comparison to the rest of her repertoire, which is already of a very high quality.

“Kill’em” by La ‘ Vega is available online worldwide. Fans of hip hop around the world should absolutely get in early.

Asked to comment on the themes or messages of his latest track, Ma$kon Ngmb writes that “Creative music and making your own lane still exists.”

A quick listen through of the “Greedymoneyboy” single is enough to hear that in this Ma$kon is not mistaken. The track is unlike any releases in the category of hip hop to be released in recent months.

Appropriately, therefore, the artist’s current official bio is a blend of symbolism and city cyphers, faithfully reproduced below:

“I’m a symphony of music, and a book of words to any genre
Independent type so it is supposed to be hard to find me
I’m bossing over here at getit2death ent., and never been the type looking for a label to sign me

Vices and Adulation release new single ‘Have You Ever’

The popular duo of dark melodic metal known as Vices and Adulation have released their latest official single, “Have You Ever.” The track is the most significant release from Vices and Adulation in some time and is expected to fuel even more interest in this undeniable Goth-rock crew the world over. With stunning vocals from acclaimed lead singer Lucy-may and razor-sharp guitar work from multiple-award winner Fabian Upton, “Have You Ever” is the latest reason fans of alternative rock have to warm their ears against the emotional fireball that is Vices and Adulation.

Asked to cite a few artistic influences, Vices and Adulation guitarist Fabian Upton names a variety of legends, including ’80s giants like Def Leppard, new-millennium groups like Evanescence and Paramore, and European melodic metal crews like Children of Bodom and Dimmu Borgir. Perhaps unsurprisingly with inspirations such as these, the autodidactic Fabian Upton has been revered online as the 8-Finger-Tapping Guitar World Champion for four consecutive years, and once as the Sweep-Picking Guitar Champion.

While this helps one imagine how his song composition and style of guitar playing might sound, the picture is far from complete without the impeccable singing of Lucy-may Upton, whose crystalline vocals have helped to garner more than 250,000 fans on Facebook and other social media, and whose arresting harmonies – possibly never before showcased as strikingly as on “Have You Ever” – have been turning heads around the heavy-metal world.

Speaking of the themes of their new single, Vices and Adulation write that “Everybody feels pain. We should care more about our surroundings and the people that surround us.”

Vices and Adulation was born in 2013. In addition to her renowned singing, Lucy-may Upton is a published poet and highly skilled artist from West Midlands, UK.

Their first instrumental album released on 4 February 2013 continues to be heard on SoundCloud and other outlets to the tune of more than a quarter-million plays. Their first non-instrumental release, “Dragon Princess 2,” followed in March and won the Akademia award for Best Alternative-Rock Song and gained the group a Facebook’s coveted Rock-Music Crown award.

“Have You Ever” by Vices and Adulation is available online worldwide from the band’s official website and elsewhere [link provided below]. Fans of alt- rock, Goth- rock and melodic metal should absolutely get in early.

Blues man Terence Lording releases new single ‘Forecast Lightning’

The songwriter of blues music known as Terence Lording has released his latest official single, “Forecast Lightning.” The single has been proudly published without the influence or participation of the corporate music power structure. A sonic landscape of shadows, mystery and intrigue, “Forecast Lightning” by Terence Lording is a contemporary reminder of how very ice-cold cool blues can sound.

Terence Lording has cited as main artistic influences such musical legends as the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin. His own sound takes elements of each of these (the innovative creativity of the Beatles, the slyness of Hendrix, the blues and rock blend of the Stones, for example) and makes of them a fresh amalgam that is not often found in modern blues music.

Asked to describe any themes or meanings which his “Forecast Lightning” might have in store for listeners, Lording writes simply that his sounds are intended to paint “musical imagery.” In this, his latest track excels in spades. For this reason, the song is not only excellent for personal, casual listening, but also lends itself easily to background scores for cinema and other purposes.

Terence Lording is a born American, raised in the west and south of the United States, as well as in Europe. His music journey began at the age of four, when he started learning to play guitar. Largely an autodidact, he was classically trained at the ages of eight, 17 and 25, but leans mostly on those lessons he taught himself. His college years found him playing in experimental music crews, while by his thirties he had picked up bass guitar.

He has stated that his main music interests include blues, jazz, soul, hard rock, blues rock, classical music, rock ‘n’ roll, rhythm ‘n’ blues, pop, and writing and recording.

“Forecast Lightning” by Terence Lording is available online worldwide.

Country singer Rhea Francani releases debut single ‘Dizzy’

The performer of country music known as Rhea Francani has released her anxiously awaited debut single, “Dizzy.” The track is the first glimpse of her upcoming freshman EP release, “I Want You to Know,” which becomes available online everywhere 10 February 2015. Both have been proudly published on the Limestone Records, LLC independent music label. Relentlessly catchy, colorfully upbeat and undeniably fun, “Dizzy” is a track that country fans of every generation can get behind.

Rhea Francani originally hails from Buffalo, NY and comes from a broad musical experience.

“I have a great appreciation for a lot of genres of music and artists,” she says in her current official bio. “I’ve performed jazz and theater, and grew up listening to Motown soul.”

She mentions being drawn to the energy of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, an energy her new single has in spades. It was popular country music that finally snared her, though, with its narrative lyrics and storylines.

“I gravitated toward country music because the stories the songs conveyed stole my heart,” says Francani.

As main influences to her own sound, Francani cites pop-country stars like Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum.

“Lady Antebellum is a really big inspiration that got me into country pop. All these artists reached me in different ways, and still motivate and encourage me every day. I want my music to relate to people. If one person is moved, I’ll feel accomplished.”

Rhea Francani’s “Dizzy” has also been concurrently released with an official music video, available for viewing online everywhere. Shot on-location in Nashville, it serves as a fine introduction to this surprise new country talent from Western New York. As it is in the single, itself, Francani’s exuberance is infectious, her joie de vivre palpable.

“I was utterly amazed the first night going into OmniSound Studios and meeting the musicians. I was very moved and excited at the same time, to be around so many talented people who shared the same love for music. They were doing the Nashville number charts as we were getting ready for scratch vocals and right before I sang the first note I started getting teary-eyed. The music I had in my head was coming to life – they helped my music come alive. They added their talents to my songs … It was an experience I’ll never forget.”

Rhea Francani is an honors graduate in Musical Theatre Performance from Wagner College, NYC and impending alumna of Teachers College, Columbia University, NYC with a Master’s Degree in Music and Music Education.

“I am so excited to share my music, my dreams, and my heart with you!” she writes. “Thank you so much for your support. Stay tuned!”

The “Dizzy” single and official music video by Rhea Francani are available online worldwide. Country fans should get in early. Be sure to watch also for her debut EP release in February, “I Want You to Know.”

Pop/folk singer Kelsey Forsberg releases new EP ‘Lost’

The singer and songwriter of pop/folk music from Northern California known as Kelsey Forsberg has released her debut EP “Lost.” The album has been proudly published on the Radiant Soul Records independent music label without the involvement of corporate music entities. It comprises five original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. Warm, heartfelt, and written in the true spirit of the folk and country tradition, “Lost” is the latest example that the real voice of America is in the singing of her independent artists.

Kelsey Forsberg cites as main artistic influences Miranda Lambert, ZZ Ward, Sheryl Crow, Colbie Caillat, Sara Bareilles, and Banks. Her own songwriting style fits in well with that of the legendary performers on this list, but her singing is more down-to-earth, more genuine, and more accessible to listeners of various music genres than many of them. Her natural tone seems to reach through the music to shake the listener’s hand, leading one through the singing of her musical narratives as if down a country road.

This is appropriate, as her debut record revolves around the ins and outs, ups and downs of life – anyone’s life – everyone’s life.

“The ‘Lost’ EP shares the struggles that people go through every day,” writes the singer of this. “It has songs ranging from heartache to getting revenge on a former bully, to being lost in a big city where no one knows your name. The lyrics reveal a discovery of oneself that I hope listeners can relate to.”

While singing has been a lifelong love for Forsberg, it wasn’t until high school that she began taking it seriously.

She writes, “I have loved music and singing since I was a little girl but I really started getting involved in the music scene at age 15, when I began taking vocal lessons and entering into local singing competitions. I took these experiences and began writing my own music. It wasn’t until I started playing at open mic nights in Folsom, CA that I really started to expand my style of music and booking local gigs.”

Now the author and performer of a globally distributed EP album, Forsberg sees music as a part of herself more than ever before.

“Music has become a way of expression and happiness for me,” she writes.

“Lost” by Kelsey Forsberg and co-written and produced by Radiant Soul Records’ David Warren is available online worldwide.

New York’s DJ SeanKev releases new LP ‘HouseFunkysco’

New York’s famous spinner of vinyl records known as DJ SeanKev has released his latest LP record, “HouseFunkySco.” The long-playing album comprises 16 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of nearly one hour, making for a comprehensive serving of the mix master’s material. It has been proudly published on the Seankev Records independent music label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Aptly named, “HouseFunkysco” is packed with endless amounts of funk and groove, and represents one of the best examples of the 1990s tradition of mixing beats from vinyl to be released in more than 20 years.

DJ Seankev hails from NYC’s Queens area, where he learned to spin and mix vinyl albums in the 1980s and ’90s. Often referred to in purist DJ circles as “Doctor of the Mix,” Seankev has been a traditional house-music DJ since the very innovation of the sound.

“I, myself, have been influenced by past and present DJs from around the world,” he writes, “but what separates me is my unique style of how I mix and play.”

This style was standard nearly three decades ago when the musician was learning the ropes from legends like producer Boyd Jarvis. But today, even headlining giants like Deadmau5 have pointed out that many modern DJs simply “press play” on a CD player and do precious little else during live performances. By contrast, SeanKev’s shows are analog and non-digital. His discs are high-quality vinyl, many of them prized antiques in pristine condition. His record collection is a work of art in itself, bearing the highly selective taste of their owner.

SeanKev’s new release, “HouseFunkysco,” showcases the aplomb with which he brings these beats and sounds together from albums pressed long ago. In his music old and new are seamlessly blended. His LP is a fresh group of songs imagined through an old tradition, realized by mixing classic, vintage records for a brand-new, 2015 release.

“My album shares a real, divine message of dancing and of feeling free to the music,” writes the DJ of his new LP. “It gives off a certain vibe to the body and soul, takes a person back in the good-old days in New York City when the clubs of my era in the ’90s were ‘the place to be.’ I had a real good time producing this sound for the world to enjoy.”

SeanKev has performed live with titans like Natasha Diggs, among others. A characteristically humble man, he outspokenly believes that the sound of soul music can spiritually heal a person and align their chakras. He considers the uniformly positive reaction of dancers at his live shows to be living proof of this.

“HouseFunkysco” by DJ SeanKev is available online worldwide. Get in early, fans of beats and dance music. Very early.

Shaniece Page releases new single ‘Number One Fan’

The singer and songwriter known as Shaniece Page has released her latest single, “Number One Fan.” The track has been proudly published on the In Us We Trust LLC independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. A track with melody, energy, and infinite danceability, “Number One Fan” is an RnB single that DJs around the world are absolutely certain to agree on.

Shaniece Page cites as main artistic influences Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Chaka Khan, “and many more.” Her own style reflects the raw talent of Carey, the vocal precision of Houston, the taste and class of Blige, and the undeniable grooviness of Khan. Her music is accessible to nearly every group of music listeners.

Playing into this strength, Page has released her new single in three editions, one with unadulterated explicit content, another edited for radio and public play, and a third remix with digital elements specifically produced for that unmistakable European-house-music sound.

The characteristically humble, yet powerfully confident Page began her singing career in a church choir. She writes of the themes of “Number One Fan” that her single talks about “keeping your significant other’s attention and making sure they are your Number One Fan.”

An extremely well-traveled American singer, Shaniece Page was born in Florida and spent time in Georgia, Texas, Canada and New York before settling in the music hotbed of Atlanta. She has commented that her greatest inspirations have been Whitney Houston and her mother, Cynthia Colston.

The age of 25 found Page attending Morris Brown where she performed in the choir under the celebrated music director, Dr. Gregory McPherson, whose work with the New Kids on the Block helped ensure their legacy. After polishing her direct and arresting stage performance to a high shine, Page began playing every venue she could fit into her increasingly busy performance calendar. Her official bio points out her fan bases in the Virgin Islands, California, Texas, New York, Georgia, and many other states, besides.

Shaniece Page is currently working on her debut record, “Wife, Friend, Freak.” The album will feature her new single as her flagship, signature song.

Young Ent releases new single ‘United We Stand’

The rapper and songwriter known as Young Ent has released his latest hip hop single, “United We Stand.” The single has been published on the VanDyke Entertainment independent record label with loud, proud endorsement by the Fight…Win…Survive outreach and ministry [#FightWinSurvive]. A timely American anthem of encouragement and civil rights, “United We Stand” is a rap song fans of any music genre can get behind.

Young Ent cites as main artistic influences such legends of the mic as Tupac Shakur, the Notorious B.I.G., Scarface, Ludacris, Run DMC, Busta Rhymes, Cash Money, Master P., Eminem, and DMX. His own sound on “United We Stand” combines the best traits of these while adding powerful attributes all his own, not the least of which is Ent’s rich, rolling natural singing voice.

Yet, perhaps the most powerful characteristic of the single remains its crucial lyrical content, the meaning of which strikes at the heart of today’s social injustices. “United We Stand” remarks upon the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO and suffocation of Eric Garner on Staten Island, NY. Both deaths were at the hands of police officials. Neither of these African-American victims were armed.

Speaking with regard to the themes of his new single, Young Ent writes, “This song signifies the climate right now in America and the hope and desire to not be overtaken by it. Two grand jury decisions not to indict white cops who killed unarmed black men, the riots, the protests, the marches, the call for change, the hope for a better future, America and world.”

Not necessarily a straightforward hip-hop track, “United We Stand” has elements of rhythm ‘n’ blues, rap, and gospel music. It has been concurrently released with an alternate, “Lord’s Prayer Mix” version, available from online music outlets as “United We Stand (Lord).” This second, more spiritually profound edition includes Young Ent reciting the Lord’s Prayer at the end of the track [Matt. 9:6-13].

“United We Stand” is co-published by Fight…Win…Survive. Asked to comment on the motto of FWS, owner Steven A. VanDyke remarked, “Life’s circumstances can sometimes knock you or a loved one down, but it doesn’t have to knock you or them out!”

Fight…Win…Survive describes itself as “an encouragement merchandiser and ministry outreach that touches lives all over the world through positive reinforcement of love, trust, belief, inspiration, encouragement and faith.

“In this life everyone has to deal with something,” writes VanDyke. “When you stop and think about it, it is absolutely true!”

A recent statement from Fight…Win…Survive concerned their “Good Grade Challenge,” which the company has described as “a positive answer to the foolish challenge games that our kids were playing and posting online.”

FWS emphasizes that their new single, “United We Stand” “is all about everyone coming together for what is right. This song is set to be the theme of – not the civil rights movement of the past – but the ‘justice for all’ movement of the future.

“It’s not only about color,” writes VanDyke. “It’s about liberty and justice for all!”

“United We Stand” by Young Ent is available online worldwide.
