S.L.O. Studios sprang from the creative mind of composer and producer Nathan Fitch. His first work blends rock and heavy metal with disparate forms including classical, jazz, and techno.

Rhea Francani Releases New Single “I’ll Go”

Country pop singer/songwriter and producer Rhea Francani has released her latest single titled “I’ll Go.” The song was published as an independent release by the Limestone Records LLC music label. 

Lively and inspiring, “I’ll Go” is the latest reason to consider Rhea Francani as New York’s best country music export in recent memory.

Rhea Francani says her artistic influences include Maren Morris, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men.

Louis-Gabriel Pothier releases new EP album ‘Leitmotiv’

The songwriter and producer of instrumental piano known as Louis-Gabriel Pothier has released his latest official EP album, “Leitmotiv.” The EP album contains four original Louis-Gabriel Pothier tracks for an approximate total listening time of 15 mins. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Evocative, narrative, and painting with sonic texture more pronounced than most film scores, “Leitmotiv” showcases Louis-Gabriel Pothier as one of the most intriguing instrumental piano artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Quebec’s Louis-Gabriel Pothier cites as main artistic influences Erik Satie, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Philip Glass, André Gagnon, Yann Tiersen, Ennio Morricone, Philippe Sarde, Francis Lai, and Stelvio Cipriani. Pothier’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds his own play-by-ear style – Pothier does not read or write music – for an uncommon result likely to enthuse all fans of piano. With an emphasis on intuitive melody lines, carefully plotted composition, and (yes) a tasteful use of motifs, “Leitmotiv” by Louis-Gabriel Pothier has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Leitmotiv,” Louis-Gabriel Pothier writes, “My instrumental piano music is mostly delicate and meditative. It aims to evoke feelings of nostalgia, sometimes melancholia, hopefulness and sadness all at once. It aims to bring back powerful childhood memories, to make the listener reminisce about past events which were significant to them, events that are now long gone. My music is very melodic, and it uses a cinematic language to bring images to the mind of the listener.”

The term ‘leitmotiv’ in music means a small phrase of notes which describe a larger idea when repeated, such as the simple, yet haunting melody of the Imperial March used by John Williams in his celebrated music for the Star Wars films. A fan of film background scores from a young age, Pothier has a knack for likewise using the leitmotiv effectively.

His true passions have always been music and cinema,” reads Louis-Gabriel Pothier’s current official bio. “Even as a kid, he was especially interested in piano scores that could be heard in European and American films from the 70s to the 90s. He was particularly touched by melodic themes and phrases that were used as a recurring ‘leitmotiv’ for specific characters or events in a film. Thus the use of the word ‘Leitmotiv’ as the title of the present release.”

Pothier, himself, works in cinema as a film- and documentary-titling artist, creating rolling credits, subtitles and film titles for many productions. His official debut music release, “Piano B,” appeared in 2013. “Piano B” received radio circulation from Radio-Canada and local stations in Montreal, and several tracks were frequently aired on Quebec’s No.1 radio morning-show, “Puisqu’il faut se lever” during their popular “Zen Moment” segment.

Leitmotiv” by Louis-Gabriel Pothier is available from quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, instrumental piano fans.

Plug Mello releases new album ‘Power of the Flower’

 

The hip-hop and rap artist known as Plug Mello has released his official debut album, “Power of the Flower.” The album has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Fun, uplifting, packed with rhythm and occasionally even inspiring, “Power of the Flower” showcases Plug Mello as one of the most intriguing hip-hop and rap music artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Miami, Florida’s Plug Mello talks about the perspective of great rappers.

Jay-Z, The Diplomats, J. Cole, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Pusha T and Eminem,” says Mello, “all legends in their own right. I think it’s an essence they capture and I respect their vision and lyricism.”

Plug Mello’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on urban poetry, bassy beats, and the triumph of the human spirit, “Power of the Flower” by Plug Mello has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Power of the Flower,” Plug Mello writes, “My music is a fun outlet for my self expression. Its message is to live life on your own terms and enjoy the lessons because that’s where the growth is.”

Plug Mello’s not just having fun, though. He’s also telling stories with an eye toward the future.

I enjoy painting with words,” he writes, “and this first album is just one shade in my palette of life experiences. It was a life goal I had. I want to be 80 looking back with a smile because I know I accomplished that goal for myself. If others enjoy it, that’s a major plus, though it’s not the determining factor in my definition of success. My kids knowing I set out to do it, and I did, that’s what I define as successful because that seed is planted in their minds, and seeing it happen is different than hearing about it happening in school.”

Mello’s concern for his family extends to his fans, too.

There are positive messages for my listeners,” he laughs. “You just gotta excavate a little to find the gems.”

Plug Mello has been described as “a captivating Dominican-American hip-hop artist flagrantly exercising his self expression giving listeners across all hip-hop channels a true refresh. With his northern bop crossed with southern melodic productions, blended with seemingly effortless witty lyricism, this artist is undoubtedly set to pave his own lane in the industry.”
