Tanya Dartson releases new EDM single ‘Run for Your Life’

The music composer and singer from New York City known as Tanya Dartson has released her latest EDM single, “Run for Your Life.” The track has been proudly published independent of the corporate music industry at over 700 digital music stores online worldwide. Upbeat, vivacious and poised for play at nightclubs around the globe, “Run for Your Life” proves that Tanya Dartson can produce electrifying pop with the best of them.

A composer with experience in several music genres, Tanya Dartson cites as main artistic influences Axwell, Zedd, David Guetta, Alesso, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, and Steve Angello, but also composers of film scores such as Thomas Bergersen and Hans Zimmer. Elements of these show through in her own repertoire.

Asked to comment on the themes of her new single, Dartson writes, “’Run for Your Life’ speaks about stripping inhibitions, grabbing the moment and seizing your freedom. Life is short and we all owe it to ourselves to run for our lives and pursue our dreams by all means possible!”

Like all Dartson’s prominent hits, “Run for Your Life” has inspirational themes. It’s one she’s especially proud of, as “Run for Your Life” is not just her first pop/dance single, but also the first on which she appears as both co-producer and lead vocalist.

“It has such a positive and uplifting message,” she writes, “and it’s one of those catchy tracks that you can dance to in the nightclub, listen to in the gym or nod your head to on your way to work.”

Until her “Run for Your Life” EDM hit, Dartson was best recognized for her 2010 “Morningside Park” piano composition, which received an Honorable Mention Citation Award from the International Music Prize for Excellence in Composition, as well as for her “Escape from Planet Earth” for symphony orchestras.

“Escape from Planet Earth” was selected by the International Composition Competition organized by the Ravel Association of Bergamo, Italy, as one of the 15 best symphony orchestra pieces from thousands of international submissions in 2015. Dartson was one of the youngest composers to reach the final round and the only female composer in the Symphony Orchestra category to be selected.

Since that time, Tanya Dartson’s music has appeared on NYC’s News 12, Brooklyn TV channel, in UCAN! Magazine, on iHeart Radio, on Canada’s FM 98.5 CKWR, on WFCF, Flagler College Radio, on 88.5 FM, Radio Horizon, on 93.9 FM in South Africa, and elsewhere.

“My ultimate dream is to have ‘Run for Your Life’ heard and shared by millions of people all over the world,” writes Dartson.

An official music video for the track is expected to drop in August 2016. A teaser for the video is available for viewing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5O8rvOwllY.

“Run for Your Life” by Tanya Dartson is available online worldwide now.

Ebony Archer releases new single ‘Gotta Believe in Me’

The inspirational singer and songwriter of pop and R ‘n’ B known as Ebony Archer has released her latest single, “Gotta Believe in Me.” The track has been proudly published on the Inspired by Purpose Inc. independent music label without any involvement from the corporate music power structure. An unstoppably upbeat and uplifting single that has been picking up steam since its first appearance online, “Gotta Believe in Me” by Ebony Archer is a dance-floor high point in indie music that doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.

Ebony Archer cites as main artistic influences such legends of pop, gospel and soul as Whitney Houston, CeCe Winans, and Aretha Franklin. Fans of these singers will find many happy parallels between their respective styles and that of Ebony Archer, herself, whose invigorating, natural jubilance and spirited tenacity finds her in the same proud echelon, and whose unassuming, “Watch this!” demeanor on “Gotta Believe in Me” is both infectious and refreshing.

These sentiments have been so uniformly echoed throughout the World Wide Web since the release of Ebony Archer’s single that the high quality of her singing – not to mention the equally lofty caliber of her songwriting – sometimes goes unmentioned. This is an unfair mistake, as Archer’s natural singing voice is both clarion and crystalline, her tones landing somewhere between Y2K-era Cher and the more danceable offerings from Whitney Houston.

In view of Archer’s long experience, this should not come a surprise.

“I started getting involved in music at the age of eight,” she writes, “when I joined an renowned gospel group called Walt Whitman and the Soul Children of Chicago.”

Since then, Ebony Archer’s goals have enlarged to include the betterment of society at large, and to read the accolades posted on her official website (link provided below) her efforts have not been in vain.

She comments on this, “I want to empower, inspire, and motivate the listeners through the words I write, the melodies I sing and the message I am trying to portray.”

It is exactly this mission which has caused her to be called in various locales, “The Inspirer,” a title which she proudly carries from state to state on her popular music tours.

Ebony Archer has shared the stage with such names as Yolanda Adams, R. Kelly, Celine Dion, Nick Carter, and others. In 2001, she was featured in R. Kelly’s video, “The World’s Greatest.” She won the runner-up award in the national “Black Girls Run” competition with over 40,000 votes, and is widely expected to exceed even these achievements before long.

“Gotta Believe in Me” by Ebony Archer is available online worldwide.
