MIGUEL CONFIRMS JUNE 30TH RELEASE DATE FOR THIRD STUDIO ALBUM WILDHEART 

[Los Angeles, CA - May 18, 2015] Grammy Award winning recording artist Miguel has confirmed the official release date for his highly anticipated third studio album, WILDHEART, out June 30th on ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records.  WILDHEART is the long awaited follow up to Miguel’s 2012 critically acclaimed sophomore release, KALEIDOSCOPE DREAM, which spent 20 weeks on the US Billboard 200 Album Chart.  The album’s first single “Coffee,” and its edgy, re-imagined alternate version, “Coffee (F***ing)” ft. Wale, were produced by Miguel and released May 4th to critical praise.
 
A new teaser for the album can be viewed HERE.
 
Miguel:
Miguel first hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single “All I Want Is You,” from his major label debut album of the same name, a song which blended a stark hip-hop beat with Miguel’s creamy vocals to form a sound that was absent from the radio and established Miguel as one of the most unique and soulful voices in modern R&B.  The album also features “Sure Thing,” which hit #1 on US Billboard's Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 “Quickie.”  Miguel’s follow up was his critically-acclaimed, four-time Grammy Award nominated, sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream, which features his third US #1 hit single “Adorn,” the intoxicating “How Many Drinks?,” “Do You…” and “The Thrill.”   In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. Lead single “Adorn,” written and produced by Miguel, garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 on the US R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks becoming the longest running #1 in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart.

About The Chainsmokers 
Wise beyond their years and aggressively handsome, these two overachievers are focused on success… Never before has the world seen two furry browed individuals such as these two (seriously they have really bushy eye brows)… As you might have imagined Alex and Drew did not meet on the set of their Vogue Cover shoot while surrounded by super models, but rather somewhere else. Apart from Social Darwinism, the thing that separates these two men from the rest is their unsettling and uncanny ability to discover and create trends. They find the parts of things that people actually give a shit about, whatever they may be, and focus on creating and improving those parts. With live sets and productions that their own mothers describe as, “sounds nice, but a little loud,” these two always put on a show that was not ever described as sexy and life changing, but should be. Apart from their unique personalities and boyish good looks, they have many similarities. They each graduated from prestigious North-Eastern Universities, they like hot chicks in yoga pants, enjoy a good burger, and have been rejected from many of the venues they now play at.
 
The Chainsmokers have become the hottest young American EDM DJ duo. Their live shows are becoming the most sought after in EDM. Their wild antics, hilarious personalities, and addicting productions have fans interacting with them non stop and running to see them live every chance they get. Their signature sound has its foundations in Indie, Progressive and Pop Music. On the production front, their original tracks have all reached the Beatport top charts and their remixes always hit #1 on the HypeM charts. They've gotten immense support by friends such as Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, Pete Tong, Afrojack, Tiesto, W&W, and more. There first major release, #SELFIE, and its official music video swept the world and was followed by the hit singles “Kanye” and “Let You Go.”

Experience Hendrix LLC and Legacy Recordings Announce Complete Acquisition of 88 Live and Studio Master Recordings By Curtis Knight & The Squires featuring Jimi Hendrix in 1965-1967

Buy Out of Historic Recordings from Ed Chalpin and PPX Enterprises Ends Decades of Thorny Litigation

July 17, 2014 - New York, NY - Experience Hendrix LLC, the Hendrix family music company which owns and administers the Jimi Hendrix music rights, and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, have acquired the full and complete rights to 88 studio and live recordings made by Curtis Knight & The Squires featuring Jimi Hendrix in 1965-1967, putting an end to all claims on the recordings once held by PPX Enterprises and Ed Chalpin.

The total buyout of these master recordings places a historic exclamation point following decades of litigation between Jimi Hendrix, Ed Chalpin and PPX Enterprises.  All 88 tracks recorded by Chalpin and PPX from 1965-1967 are finally under complete ownership and control of Experience Hendrix LLC.

In the early 1960s, before launching a solo career that continues to influence pop, rock and soul music, Jimi Hendrix was a little known sideman, working for short periods with a variety of artists including the Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Little Richard and the Harlem-based R&B combo Curtis Knight & The Squires.

Ed Chalpin was an entrepreneur and record producer who founded PPX International, Inc, in 1960; PPX specialized in providing backing tracks for movies, TV shows, trailers and commercials, working with a variety of artists, producers, directors, music supervisors, record companies, and production companies.   During his tenure as a guitarist for the Squires, Curtis Knight introduced Hendrix to Chalpin.  On October 15, 1965, Chalpin inked a notorious three-year recording contract--for $1.00 and a 1% royalty--with Jimi (then "Jimmy") Hendrix and Curtis Knight & The Squires that would prove endlessly problematic, once the guitarist hit big with his own group, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, in 1967.

Knight’s single releases featuring Hendrix as a sideman did not enjoy commercial success and the guitarist relocated to Greenwich Village where he formed Jimmy James & The Blue Flames in 1966.  Animal’s bassist Chas Chandler discovered Hendrix performing at the Café Wha? as Jimmy James that summer and offered to take him to London.

When Jimi signed with manager Chas Chandler and began his transition from sideman into the stratosphere, Chandler dutifully sought out, and bought out every contract his new artist might have outstanding.  The exception, Hendrix's 1965 agreement with PPX, became the source of a string of legal battles running from the 1960s into the 21st century.

Through the years, many of the recordings Hendrix made with Curtis Knight & The Squires were made available in misleading packages (often misrepresented by images of Hendrix leading the Jimi Hendrix Experience as opposed to being a member of the Squires) and have never been properly released, or evaluated, as vital and explosive exemplars of electric R&B and essential components in Jimi's artistic evolution.

In 2007, Experience Hendrix LLX obtained a stipulated court order of almost $900,000 against Ed Chalpin.  The payment  to  Experience  Hendrix  was  the  culmination  of  a 2006 lawsuit commenced  in  New  York  against Chalpin and two of his related companies.

The case dates back to a 2001 lawsuit in the UK High Court by Experience Hendrix against Chalpin and his PPX Enterprises to enforce a 1973 consent decree, which limited Chalpin’s rights in Hendrix recordings to 33 masters largely recorded in 1965 when Hendrix was an unknown backing guitarist for the R&B combo Curtis Knight & The Squires.

On July 5, 2002, a London High Court order was issued which read: "Ed Chalpin / PPX Enterprises Inc. must not issue or release recordings on which Jimi Hendrix performed in any capacity whatsoever (other than 33 songs with Jimi Hendrix as a sideman)."

Later in 2003, a New York State Court upheld the UK court’s decision.

The 88 recordings include a mythic live performance on December 26, 1965 (before Jimi's upcoming success in England) at George's Club 20 in Hackensack, New Jersey, as well as studio tracks cut by Curtis Knight & The Squires with Hendrix in July 1967 (after the May 12 release of Are You Experienced that same year).  Legacy Recordings and Experience Hendrix plan on releasing these historic recordings--properly mixed, mastered and annotated--in definitive new editions, curated and remastered under the direction of Eddie Kramer (Hendrix's long-time sound engineer) over the next three years.

Grace Announces Debut EP Memo - Available May 26
Premieres New Track “Memo (Boyfriend Jeans)”
Via Entertainment Weekly – TODAY
Latest Single “You Don’t Own Me” Ft. G-Eazy
Currently #1 on Australian iTunes Charts!

(May 19, 2015) Australian vocal powerhouse, Grace announces today her upcoming debut EP, MEMO – to be released on May 26th via RCA Records. The title track “Memo (Boyfriend Jeans),” premiered on EW.com, yesterday. PRESS HERE to listen to the track!
 
Grace’s first single off of her upcoming EP is a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 anthem “You Don’t Own Me,” featuring new verses rapped by G-Eazy and its original producer, the legendary Quincy Jones. The single just crossed over 4 million plays streaming online and is currently #1 on the iTunes Songs charts in Australia. PRESS HERE to check it out!
 
The remainder of the EP is filled with original songs that highlight her influences, which range from Gladys Knight to Amy Winehouse. Grace co-wrote all of the EP’s five songs, including the title track song when she was only 16 and recording it on her iPhone. 
 
GRACE, an eighteen-year-old singer/songwriter, is one of the hottest pop-soul prospects this year. Hailing from Brisbane, Australia with UK roots, Grace grew up where the sounds of Smokey Robinson to Janis Joplin, and Shirley Bassey to Amy Winehouse, filled her home and fueled her soul. With a strong musical heritage (her grandparents were singers with the Gibb brothers), Grace has developed a raw, throaty, soulful sound whose emotional timbre belies her tender years. It’s easy to understand how that style was developed when she name-checks her biggest influences as Shirley Bassey, Minnie Riperton, Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin and Michael Jackson just to name a few.

JAMES RETURN WITH STUNNING NEW ALBUM

‘LA PETITE MORT’ OUT SEPTEMBER 16TH IN NORTH AMERICA.

WATCH ‘MOVING ON’ HERE: http://t.ymlp320.net/uqyuqapaubwmbaoaqbakau/click.php

"There are precious few 32-year-old bands who still feel this fresh" - The Independent

"uplifting celebrations of lives well lived" - Uncut Magazine
 
 
(July 21, 2014)- UK’s finest Manchester band James are making a welcomed return with their impressive new album ‘La Petite Mort’, which hits stores nationwide and all digital platforms on September 16th. 

Formed in 1982 and first signed to the infamous Factory Records, James are, without doubt, one of the UK’s most influential Brit-pop bands of our time. With a prestigious career that spans over 30 years and includes 12 studio albums and 12 millions records sold worldwide, James hold countless notable musicians as fans who speak highly of the their artistry and songwriting, including Michael Stipe, Chris Martin, Noel Gallagher and Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry who claims their 1994 release Wah Wah "changed how I listened to music. And expanded my idea of what collective/group artistic processes could be."
 
The band's critically acclaimed and Brian Eno produced album "Laid" was their highest charting release in the U.S. debuting in the Billboard Top 200 in 1993, since then they have gone onto release classic hits such as ‘Born of Frustration’, ‘Laid’, 'Sit Down’, ‘Say Something’, ‘She’s A Star’, ‘Sometimes’, ‘Come Home’ and ‘Getting Away With It (All Messed Up)’, and continue to write astoundingly great music to this day.

  The band's stunning new album (already hailed as one of the "Best Albums of 2014" so far by The Guardian) ‘La Petite Mort’ was produced by Max Dingel (Killers, Muse, White Lies) and was written by the band, with chief lyricist and front-man Tim Booth’s captivating and heartfelt lyrics, ranking this new full-length as one of their finest in their impressive 30 year career.

Despite the album’s cheerful and uplifting sound, ‘La Petite Mort’ was recorded in the months following the passing of Tim Booth’s mother and his best friend. Many of the songs deal with facing mortality (hence the album title), but in true James form -- much like some of the greatest Manchester story-tellers (Morrissey, Guy Garvey, Ian Brown, Richard Ashcroft) -- they also deal with the realness of life (and death), with lyrical poignancy, wit and a charm that has become their trademark.

The current lead single ‘Moving On’ is a true testament to the band's ability to continually create outstanding music. The simple but incredibly moving animated short film that serves as the single's video was created by esteemed BAFTA award-winning animator and director Ainslee Henderson. “My Mother's death was clearly a birth of some kind and that description caught Ainslie's imagination” explains Booth. Watch the video here: http://t.ymlp320.net/uqyuqapaubwmbaoaqbakau/click.php.

Famed for their live performances, the band recently embarked on an extensive European tour, performing at all the leading festivals and kicked things off with a huge homecoming gig at Manchester's Summer in the City this week.
 
James are: Tim Booth (vocals), Jim Glennie (bass), Larry Gott (guitars), Saul Davies (guitar, violin), Mark Hunter (keyboards), David Baynton-Power (drums) and Andy Diagram (trumpet).

JUDAS PRIEST SCORES 1ST EVER CANADIAN TOP 5 DEBUT IN THE NIELSEN SOUNDSCAN ERA WITH ‘REDEEMER OF SOULS’
 
ALBUM DEBUTS TOP TEN BILLBOARD IN THE U.S.
 
Wednesday July 16th, 2014, Toronto,ON - Judas Priest's 17th studio effort overall, Redeemer of Souls, debuts at #5 on the Nielsen Soundscan Canada Top Albums chart - it is the band’s highest chart-peaking album and first top five debut in the Canadian Nielsen Soundscan era. The album is also set to debut in the US on the Billboard 200 charts at #6, which is the highest US album chart debut of the legendary British band's career.
 
And the album reviews have been some of the best of Priest's entire career as well, including Rolling Stone declaring "'Redeemer' is proof that Priest can still call themselves metal's defenders of the faith," while All Music Guide stated Redeemer of Souls is also the loosest (attitude-wise), leanest (arrangement-wise), and most confident-sounding collection of new material the band has released in ages."
 
It was also recently announced that Priest (singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Scott Travis) will be hitting the road this fall, along with special guests Steel Panther.
