Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) Produces Exquisite Debut EP for New Australian Indie Duo, Secret Solis, with Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) on the Drums

Adelaide, Australia, 2017-May-18 — /EPR ENTERTAINMENT NEWS/ — Between sold out tours of Australia and Canada in 2016, Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) invited new Australian indie folk / rock duo Secret Solis to record their debut EP, “Deep Down” at River House Studios near Byron Bay. The sessions produced a five track album of indie folk / rock anthems, the tracks resonating with both Led Zeppelin’s driving acoustic rock and the ethereal ballads of Pink Floyd. Jeff’s eastern palette adds an eclectic flavour to the EP that is reminiscent of his early albums with The Tea Party, as in Splendor Solis and Edges of Twilight. Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) joins the line up on drums providing a John Bonham / Ginger Baker style foundation for the albums songs.

When asked to describe the project Martin says “I have been waiting for years to produce a sound like this at River House Studios. Of all the production work I have done over the last 25 years, including my work with The Tea Party, Secret Solis’ EP “Deep Down” is in the top five of work that I am most proud of.”

Secret Solis was formed in 2012 when established Cairns-based singer/songwriter, Kian Eder met Cally Pysden, a pianist and singer/songwriter from Adelaide. Before meeting Cally, Kian’s music was heavily influenced by Pink Floyd, The Tea Party, A Perfect Circle, and acoustic rock cross-over artists like Ben Harper. Collaborating with Cally added a new dimension to Kian’s vision, elevating the music to new heights with her soaring ethereal vocals the likes of Enya, Dido, Sia and Amy-Lee. Enter Jeff Martin as producer and musician using production techniques straight out of Jimmy Page’s playbook, and Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) on drums and you have a special magic happening in the mix.

Martin agreed to produce the band after hearing only a small section of their demo, “Speechless Soul” and the rest is history. Jeff plays all the heavy guitars and solos, hurdy gurdy and synths including his boutique theremin. He also lends his voice to the band’s debut single, “Sunshine”. The second single, “Are You Listening?” features Jeff playing an old school rock solo unlike many have ever heard.

Both singles are now available at secretsolis.bandcamp.com

When asked what the songs are about Kian says “The songs are based on our personal experiences but ultimately we are aiming to create relatable themes that resonate with everyone. We want this music to heal, uplift and empower people to face and overcome the many challenges of life as our favourite music has done for us.”

The Debut EP “Deep Down” will be released via bandcamp on the 16th of June, 2017.

Secret Solis are currently seeking expressions of interest from record labels, managers and booking agents to take the project to the next level.

Norwegian rock legend Gudny Aspaas to launch her new album in Oslo on April 5 at the Rockefeller Music Hall

OSLO, Norway, 07-Jan-2017 — /EPR ENTERTAINMENT NEWS/ — Tickets for the concert are now on sale, and can be ordered through www.gudnyaspaas.com which also features samples from “No Stranger”. The concert will also feature tracks from Gudny’s back catalog.

“The concert and album are the culmination of several months of work – and I’m thrilled with how “No Stranger” has turned out,” said Gudny. “I was lucky to work with some incredibly talented musicians and a wonderful team, and the result is, I think, the best work I’ve ever produced. I’m really looking forward to being back on stage, and I can’t wait for people to hear the new album in April.”

“No Stranger” is representative of the eclecticism of Gudny’s extensive career in music, with all of her – and her musicians’ – many talents represented in tracks such as the vocally complex “Galactic Child” (which allows her to show off her distinctive voice) through the eloquent piano/vocal piece “Hello Again” to the classic rock ‘n’ roll of “You Can Run”. From haunting simplicity to wall of sound, “No Stranger” fully demonstrates the breadth and depth of Gudny’s musical genius and her pioneering versatility as a composer and performer.

Gudny represented Norway four times in the Eurovision Song Contest, and fronted iconic progressive rock group Ruphus in the 1970s, returning for a reunion in the 1990s and again in 2010 – also at the Rockefeller Music Hall. Ruphus’s “New Born Day” was voted as one of the top 50 best Norwegian albums ever made. She has also released numerous solo singles and albums.

Originally from Meråker but now living in Oslo, Gudny comes from a musical family in which almost every member could play an instrument. Singing shyly for her family from the age of four, she and three friends formed “The Singing Goats” at the age of 12, supporting their vocals with guitars and tambourine. Having won a music competition, she released her first single in 1969.

Gudny is also a supremely talented creative artist, working mainly in silver jewellery. She graduated from the Statens Kunst og Håndverksskole (State Academy of Craft and Art Industry) and now has her “Silverland” gallery/workshop in the centre of Oslo near the Slottsparken.

Interactive And Multi-Cultural PIE Holiday Stories And Carols CD Available On CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon And Other Online Sources

Several years ago, a creative team led by Riviere, produced a Holiday CD which features his 10-minute version of A Christmas Carol titled Old Mr. Scrooge. Other stories include A Kwanzaa Story, The Armadillo’s Feliz Navidad and The Hanukkah Candles as well as classics like The Elves and The Shoemaker and The Dwarf and The Cobbler’s Sons. The team also recorded several classic carols and a “participation story” titled On A Winter’s Day that includes a warm-up.

“We believe the CD will be a wonderful gift for children but also a creative tool for teachers in Elementary Schools to introduce, in a fun, imaginative and interactive way, holiday stories from other cultures and classic stories that have begun to slip away from our modern-day celebrations,” Riviere pointed out.

The CD, entitled PIE Story Theatre Holiday Stories & Carols is available for download from CD Baby (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/pieholidaystoriesandcaro) or on iTunes, Amazon and other online sources. “It’s been a labor of love and a long time coming but I believe adults and children alike are going to love it!” Riviere said.

The artists involved with this CD were actor/voiceover artists Melissa Center, Kellie Johnson, Michael Menger, Babs Smith and Riviere. Riviere adapted and wrote a majority of the stories (including Old Mr. Scrooge which was published through Lulu Press) but The PIE Troupe did collaborate on The Kwanzaa Story and The Armadillo’s Feliz Navidad was written by renowned international artist, John Bellia.

PIE (Projects In Education) Story Theatre was formed to be the Educational arm of The Emerging Artists Project in 1991 – a non-profit theater organization co-founded by Patrick Riviere. It is currently the educational initiative of All Seasons Theatre Company. PIE has an acclaimed and popular history reaching thousands of children and families with live programming in the New York tri-state area, Chicago and Los Angeles. Currently PIE has two active companies in Los Angeles and New York City and has plans to revive in Chicago and launch a Company in Boston.

Buy the Ltd Edition Double Vinyl of 3 Knights “Burial Proceedings In The Coarse of 3 Knights Remixes” and transfer the Tape Archive of Music of Life to Digital for Reissue and Remixing

Classic Artists such as Simon Harris, Derek B, Hijack, Hardnoise, Demon Boyz, MC Duke, Daddy Freddy, Asher D, First Frontal Assault, Killa Instinct, Son of Noise and many others graced the label.

Music of Life are using their kickstarter.com Project to fund restoration of the tape archive to Digital. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/690609829/restore-music-of-life-tape-archive-to-digital-for

Income from this project will be ploughed in to transferring the tape archive of Classic UK Ragga Hip Hop label, to digital format, re-mastering and
reissuing the music, making remixes and issuing some classic lost tracks that, for reasons no one can explain, did not get released in the early 90’s. The archive revealed 5 unreleased Son of Noise classics. 4 more versions of Militant Posture – Dawn of Terror and other gems yet to be
transferred.

Music of Life has been dormant since 1998 with a limited online offering. A meeting with Chris France (the business brains behind MOL) in September 2012 led to Robin Allinson being appointed Label Manager. His mission was to complete the catalogue available for download.

Many of the recordings were missing. After months of searching, a chance discovery revealed the location of 19 boxes of the original 2 track production master tapes and 24 track tapes in a Publishers storage warehouse. Simon Harris (the music production brains behind MOL) supplied all the DAT tapes he could find. The digital offering expanded as a result with the addition of classic recordings by:

•Killa Instinct
•Hardnoise
•Son of Noise
•Daddy Freddy & Asher D
•First Frontal Assault
•Kobalt 60;
•Professor Griff
•The Microphone Prince
•Chris Biscuit
•She Rockers
•Sparky D
•Brothers On Organised Mission

The analogue tapes have been sitting in storage since the late 80’s and early 90’s so they need baking before recording to digital format. Luckily they were stored in the right environment and the tapes we have transferred so far have come out well. The tapes were baked and transferred to high quality Digital files at FX Group in Acton, London, using state of the art machines for the best results. We can get a big discount for doing it in bulk. Transferring tapes allowed us to reissue the first ever LP from MOL, DEF BEATS. Relicense Hijack titles for reissue and start this remix project.

With a modest budget to transfer the tapes to digital for remixing and a wide choice of 24 track tapes to choose from Robin chose a classic.

3 Knights – “Burial Proceedings in the course of 3 Knights”.

The idea is that we could raise income to transfer the entire archive in one go. Complete the catalogue, remaster and reissue some lost classics and issue new 21st Century UK Hip Hop and other styles again. The rebirth of a classic label, the rescue and restoration of a classic archive.

Our rewards include being added to the advance promo list for life (£10), digital files (£5) and physical Vinyl containing 3 Knights – “Burial
Proceedings in the course of 3 Knights Remixes” (£25),

This is essentially Hijack by another name. We invited Hijack Producer, DJ Supreme to do a remix. Other producers were invited to make new versions. They all contributed them for free to this project. People that have kindly contributed so far are:

•DJ Supreme (Hijack)
•Mista Bohze (II Tone Committee)
•Krash Slaghta (II Tone Committee)
•DJ Mada (Son of Noise)
•Spatts (The Criminal Minds / 32 Troop)
•Chrome (DEF TEX / Son Records)
•DJ Tones (Sublime Wizardry / 32 Troop)
•Alan Johnson (Hardnoise)
•Sure Shot (Blak Prophetz)

Links in brackets are Discogs

The remixes are all different, with totally new backing tracks. Equally we found the mixes to be of a very high standard and the feedback has been very positive. So much so, that we want to commit as many as possible to wax for the vinyl lovers. The full tracks are available to hear on soundcloud.com as 128kbps streams along with much of the Music of Life catalogue.

EXTRAS
We have 60 Music of Life slip mats in stock to add to the first vinyl heads package. 10 of them are Glow in the dark.

We know that there is an army of UK Hip Hop fans that would love to get their hands on some exclusive new vinyl from Music of Life and feel this is the best way to involve fans directly in Kick Starting the process.

We have recently relicensed the Hijack titles that came out on Music of Life. The tapes are transferred already. DJ Supreme is still deciding who to ask to remix “Style Wars”. Supreme and Alan Johnson of Hardnoise have already made new remixes to issue on Music of Life. We have also
transferredHUSTLERS CONVENTION and Militant Posture. We also have the Demon Boyz LPas 24 track reels!

Other remix projects have been started already featuring new Jungle Drum & Bass from Bay B Kane and Dominic Stanton (Domu, Sonar Circle, Umod, Zoltar etc) / Two Hungry Ghosts Blog. More will follow.

If we don’t meet our goal then we won’t get any money at all and the release will have to go to digital only and the tapes will sit on the shelf

The video was made by Robin Allinson (Label Manager) in one shot on his smart phone in the studio so may be a little rough and rugged. Thank
you for taking time to read about our project. Check out all Music of Life and Stay On Target remixes below.

Bringing You The Best Cheap MP3 Websites

Are you fed up of searching for cheap MP3’s online only to find that site after site simply fails to deliver what you are after in terms of price, or music variety and quality? Maybe you are also fed up of signing up to MP3 membership sites, but then they fail to give you access to any decent MP3’s and you are left feeling ripped off. Well, then maybe it’s time you visited Buycheapmp3s.com

This new look website has been setup by people just like you who were fed up with wasting endless hours on the Internet looking for low cost MP3’s only to come across site after site that failed to live up to expectations.

Basically they have taken the hassle out of searching for low cost MP3’s online by searching the Internet for websites supplying cheap MP3’s that really do deliver. They do this by spending their own money by joining up to download sites, and then test the service on your behalf to see if the cheap MP3 website in question offers you good value for money or not. They spend their money so you don’t have to.

On their MP3 website you will find a wide range of impartial reviews of websites offering you low cost MP3’s. The best thing is the reviewers only pick sites that offer 100% legal and cheap mp3 downloads, so you won’t sign up to a new service and then find yourself accused of illegal file sharing at a later date. Many of the sites reviewed are based and licensed in Russia, which due to the music licensing laws there, means they offer totally legal chart MP3’s at incredibly cheap prices.

Indeed the cheap music download sites that can be found on the Buy Cheap MP3’s website, offer music track’s at great prices with whole albums of CD quality music available to legally download from as low as $1 per album. Imagine how much money you can save by not paying out up to $20 for every new album you want to download?

The great thing about this new MP3 website though is the quality of reviews. Each MP3 website is reviewed for not just the quality and range of MP3’s on offer, but other factors, such as does the website offer a wide range of different genres from hip hop to classical music? How easy does the sites design make it to navigate? Also, most importantly the value for money per track that the website offers. Which, after all is a key factor when you’re seeking to buy cheap MP3’s.

The impartial reviews take you beyond the hype and the fancy graphics, and tell you which sites deliver the goods at a low price and legally.

They also score the websites based upon the all important “Download Speed”, as the guys running BuycheapMP3s.com recognise that not every one has 50Mb, or even 20Mb download speeds at home, and they believe that the best priced MP3’s in the World aren’t that great if they take forever to download.

The BuycheapMP3’s website and the great reviews you find on it, is extremely easy to navigate and you won’t have to signup to anything to get access to the details that you need to make just the right decision as to where to buy new MP3’s from. Using this site will save you hours of time and wasted money, as they personally try out each service before they give you their verdict on it.

It was mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound Studios in New York. “I’ve been blessed with the privilege of recording this album surrounded by people who believe in me and in my work as an artist.

The Talented Reggae/Hip Hop Musician From Jamaica Has Released His Anticipated Sophomore Album, A Move Which Will Thrill His Fans Around The World

No Phear recently released his new album, marking a huge stage in the career of the versatile reggae/hip hop singer-songwriter. No Phear, who hails from St. Ann, Jamaica, has released his second solo project and is now promoting the album to build upon his fan base and introduce his music to more people than ever.

The Talented Reggae/Hip Hop Musician From Jamaica Has Released His Anticipated Sophomore Album, A Move Which Will Thrill His Fans Around The World

The album, I Stand Alone , consists of sixteen original songs from No Phear, each providing a combination of contemporary driving beats, resonant vocals and inspired lyrics. The rhythmic undercurrent bears testament to a modern interpretation of reggae , and the music is accentuated throughout with elements of dancehall and hip hop.

The album was recorded at Rockstar Entertainment & Music in New Jersey, and its creation was supported by musicians like Pink Bling, Super Shane and Notorious. It was produced collaboratively by No Phear, Showtime da Producer and T and was post-produced by T from High Stakes Records.

I Stand Alone reveals the array of influences that have found their way into No Phear’s music. While his grounding is in traditional reggae, his style has been shaped by other musical forms indigenous to the Caribbean. No Phear always brings something singular and fresh to a traditional sound. For this reason, his preference for unconventional beats has been enhanced by his ability to blend the essence of reggae/dancehall with a modern urban note flavored by rap and hip hop.

No Phear said of his work, “Since going solo, my style has developed, and I’ve incorporated other sounds and genres which have all made their way into I Stand Alone . The album is a reflection of my influences over the years and the changes that I’ve experienced as an artist.”

The album is available now on iTunes Rhapsody napster and Amazon; and fans are encouraged to visit No Phear’s website, which provides everything you could want to know about the promising musician: fans can check out No Phear’s brand new “Zion’s Gate” video, view photos, and sign up for the mailing list to receive information about upcoming shows and No Phear news.
