Kim Reilly’s SeaSide Fragments Featuring All Star Ensemble Covers Ace Classic “How Long?”

For Immediate Release

Kim Reilly’s SeaSide Fragments Featuring All Star Ensemble Covers Ace Classic “How Long?”

Feat. Members of Firefall, Ambrosia, Clarence Clemons Temple of Soul & John Ford Coley!

SeaSide Fragments is Created and Produced out of the Love for the Music and Musicians who wrote, created and produced in the 60’s and 70’s. Each track is carefully thought out, yet recorded in between sound checks and shows, and are collaborations of our friends and artists from these decades and tracks! Each song was recorded in 1 to 2 takes, all musicians live in the studio together with no rehearsal or planned structure, only what was in my vision. Finally mixed and mastered to reflect the analog, vinyl era of Music!

Says producer Kim Reilly, “SeaSide Fragments is basically my idea of doing old classic songs from the 70’s era that are special to me. I have asked, and continue to ask  some of the artists I work with over the years and have become good friends to help me in this vision. Every friend/artist I have approached so far has been more than happy to join me and be a part of this vision and labor of love, and has come either to the studio pre sound checks of one of my shows with me, or has flown in tracks to implement. I have never been asked for anything in return. I feel as though I am fortunate in this business to have the relationships I have! The music industry is a cut throat, cruel world, and this has proven to me that it is not that way for everyone!

“’How Long’: this track was recorded in 2 takes with just 2 hours of a window between my sound check and show that day. The artists really had no idea what was going on until we arrived at the studio. I told them how I wanted to song revised, and they just nailed it. Dave Muse was added after the fact as I chose a Flute to be part of this track. Billy Livesay (of Clarence Clemons Temple of Soul) was also added in after the fact. The rest of the track was done on the spot! Here is a segment of the SeaSide Fragment intentions.

“I chose this song ‘How Long’ not only because of it’s catchy hook, but because the song is reflecting ‘the Bass player performing in another band without the band’s knowledge, and then returning.’” 

Paul Carrack, original lead vocalist for Ace, responded favorably after hearing the new cover of “How Long” by SeaSide Fragments. The track was produced by Kim Reilly and SeaSide Music Management.

Prog Legends Nektar Release New Single “SkyWriter”

For Immediate Release

Prog Legends Nektar Release New Single “SkyWriter”

Available on 12-inch vinyl, CD single and digitally!

Prog legends Nektar have released their first single “SkyWriter” B/W “Devil’s Door” in October from their eagerly anticipated forthcoming new album “The Other Side”! This is the first new studio album by Nektar made in the United States since 1977!

The original members of Nektar; Derek “Mo” Moore, Ron Howden, and Mick Brockett are back. They’ve added Ryche Chlanda from Fireballet and the 78′ band, Randy Dembo from the 2005 band, and newcomer and world-class keyboard player, Kendall Scott.

The music for Nektar’s new album “The Other Side” comes from the 1978 era when they were writing in Mo’s basement in Chatham, New Jersey. This music was put on pause for the last 40 YEARS and it’s now time to release it with new input and fresh ideas. The music is growing exponentially as Nektar continue rehearsing and writing and letting it take the band to new heights.

Of the new single, Mo explains, “’Sky Pilot’ I wrote in 1978 but did not like it so much, it was OK but not finished. Ryche switched it around and wrote the music for the verse and it became ‘SkyWriter’ which I love. Words are by Ryche, Mick and myself. It’s a story of a guy whose significant other…wife, girlfriend, mother, dies and he is up in the sky writing letters which he hopes she will see. All part of “The Other Side” concept. By the way it does not say he was flying IN anything, I will leave that to your imagination.”

The b-side of the single “’Devils Door’ was an old 1974 song we played in a couple of concerts back in the day but we never finished it, I think the chorus was a little too high and we had never taken it into the studio to finish it. Ryche, Mick and I wrote lyrics for it and got it ready to record. While we were getting ready I realized that Roye Albrighton’s introduction guitar sounded great, I suggested starting off the song with it which was enthusiastically received by all. It became a great piece of music and the beginning vocal even sounds like Roye. The story is of flying near the and flying away from the Devils Door which is beyond the Other Side…”

The 12-inch Vinyl and CD single will first be available at ProgStock, which the band will be performing – October 11th – 13th. Nektar’s new album will be released on Esoteric Records in the UK in January 2020.

The Vinyl will include:
“SkyWriter” in its longer form 7:53 (A-side)
“Devils Door” 8:09 (B-side)

CD digipack will include:
“SkyWriter” in its longer form 7:53
“Devils Door” 8:09
“SkyWriter” Radio Edit 5:20

Opening guitar on “Devils Door” is by Roye Albrighton
cover art is by Helmut Wenske

Thank you from all of us at Nektar…..
Derek, Ron, Mick, Ryche, Randy, and Kendall

Internationally Acclaimed Soul Artist CORNELL “CC” CARTER to Release Highly Anticipated New Album ABSOULUTELY

For Immediate Release

Internationally Acclaimed Soul Artist CORNELL “CC” CARTER to Release Highly Anticipated New Album ABSOULUTELY

San Francisco, CA – Cornell “CC” Carter has been gracing stages and entertaining thousands of fans with his signature sound around the world for many years. He is known for his phenomenal stage presence, his high-powered audience engagement, and his extraordinary and dynamic vocal skills. CC is now set to announce his brand new 2019 album ABSOULUTELY
, scheduled for release by Izipho Soul Records on CD October 4 and then worldwide on all digital formats on October 18, 2019!

The album’s first single “I See Love” was released August 9 and has received rave reviews. CC describes ABSOULUTELY as an album full of “songs that came through my Soul and out of my Heart!” It includes two classic cover tracks delivered in CC’s signature soulful style, “We’re A Winner” by Curtis Mayfield, and “Come Live With Me Angel” by Marvin Gaye. Cornell and his main Producer Kirk Crumpler received tremendous contributions from other talented musicians including his Mentor and Grammy winning Producer Narada Michael Walden, Eddie M (Sheila E) on Saxophone, Rich Armstrong (Tony Toni Tone, etc.) on Trumpet, Brian Braziel on drums, James Henry on Percussions, Dave Shul, and Larry White (Bobby Brown) on Guitar along with Cam Perridge who also was the Engineer for ABSOULUTELY! Additional vocals were provided by featured artist Naté Soulsanger (on the song “Morning Touch” produced by James Day), Niecey Robinson, and mentor Larry Batiste.

Cornell’s strong love for music developed when he was a young man growing up in a San Francisco home chock full of Jazz, Blues, Funk, Soul, and Gospel, which has been the inspiration for his creativity and songwriting. He co-wrote and produced his internationally acclaimed 2016 album In The Moment
with co-producer Kirk “KC” Crumpler, who has produced various award-winning artists. A collection of 13 diverse tracks spanning R&B, Funk, and heart-piercing Soul numbers, In The Moment is a mix of the past and present, featuring solid classics and contemporary chart-toppers. CC performed all lead and background vocals on the entire album and was also instrumental in the music’s production.

Following the release of In The Moment, Cornell was able to collaborate with other producers (DJ Spen, Boogie Back) and put out several highly acclaimed remixes which have received great reviews in the US and Europe. On May 19, 2017, Cornell released Vindicated Soul
, a remarkable collection of soulful covers of artists including Marvin Gaye, Al Green, and Willie Hutch. Vindicated Soul also includes a remix of the classic CC original track “Where Do We Go.” (

In August 2018 CC released the album ONE LOVE
. The first Single from the album, “That Feelin’,” was #1 on all significant Soul Charts in the UK. CC achieved what has been called the elusive “Hat Trick” (#1 on All 3 Soul Charts at the same time) which no other artist has ever accomplished! ONE LOVE has a variety of outstanding Producers on its roster such as Morgan Howell (Soulpersona, UK), Brian Braziel, David Council, and Kirk Crumpler. Cornell says, “ONE LOVE is a message of Oneness with the planet and each other and allowing Love and Music to be our guide to a better world!”

CC has had many once in a lifetime musical experiences to draw from, but two of the highest points of his career so far has been sharing the stage as an opening act for the late great Godfather of Soul, James Brown, and the legendary Ray Charles. In addition to his various headline performances, he has also opened for other household name brand artists such as The Whispers, The Temptations, Natalie Cole, and Kool and The Gang. As part of Narada Michael Walden’s all-star band, which performs at various NMW Foundation events, he has shared the stage with other renowned world-class artists such as Neil Schon (Journey), Dionne Warwick, Ronnie Spector, and many other legendary performers!

Throughout the years, CC has appeared on many albums, and he continues to be one of the most in-demand session vocalists in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was honored to perform with world-renowned, multi-platinum guitarist Carlos Santana, providing vocals on two tracks that appeared on Santana IV
and on Santana’s latest album with the legendary Ron Isley. His experience and professionalism have made him an A-list vocalist for Tarpan Studios, appearing on many tracks with Grammy and Emmy Award winning producer Narada Michael Walden, and also contributed vocals on various Tarpan artist releases.

CC loves to share his talents with aspiring artists and veteran performers alike. He established CDC Productions, his own production and record company geared toward assisting these artists to follow their dreams while also teaching them about the time and dedication it takes to reach their goals. Cornell has been involved with many charities and non-profits over the past few years, and his vision is to continue to uplift and engage people all around the world with Music.

Tribute Album & Shows To Original Genesis Guitarist Anthony Phillips By Rocking Horse Music Club Announced

For Immediate Release

Tribute Album & Shows To Original Genesis Guitarist Anthony Phillips By Rocking Horse Music Club Announced

Rocking Horse Music Club presents the music of Anthony Phillips feat. guest appearances by Steve Hackett, John Hackett, Nick Magnus, Kate St. John, John Helliwell & others!

Rocking Horse Music Club presents the music of original Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips on the new album, “Which Way the Wind Blows.” The Rocking Horse Music Club is a songwriting and performing collective that emerged from Rocking Horse Studio, a world-class recording facility in central New Hampshire, USA. The group features producer/songwriter/instrumentalist Brian Coombes, singer/songwriter/guitarist Justin Cohn, and singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Patrik Gochez, along with Rocking Horse Studio session musicians Eric Wagley (drums), Myron Kibbee (guitar), Mike McAdam (guitar), and Brenden Harisaides. The band has been performing as a unit live and in the studio since 2008.

In February 2019, Rocking Horse Music Club began rehearsing and recording material for a tribute album to original Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips. The album is scheduled for release on October 11, 2019, with live dates in England scheduled for November 2019.

The album features numerous special guests, including: 

Steve Hackett (guitar) – Anthony Phillips’ replacement in Genesis. A legend.

John Hackett (flute) – in addition to playing flute on the Anthony Phillips album “The Geese & the Ghost,” John has performed on numerous Steve Hackett records and live shows.

Nick Magnus (keyboards) – Nick has performed on numerous Steve Hackett records and live shows.

Kate St. John (oboe) – Kate was a founding member of Dream Academy and contributed to a Nick Drake tribute album and live show.

John Helliwell (clarinet/saxophone) – John was a primary member of Supertramp.

Noel McCalla (vocals) – Noel was the lead vocalist on Mike Rutherford’s first solo album, “Smallcreep’s Day.”

Steve Anderson (guitar) – Steve is currently the guitarist in the Room, a UK progressive/melodic rock band. Prior to the Room, he was the guitarist in Grey Lady Down, a British neo-prog band in the 1990s.

Evelyn Cormier (vocals) – Evelyn was an American Idol Finalist on ABC television in 2019. She is currently recording her new album at Rocking Horse Studio.

Caroline Carter (vocals) – Caroline is a former Miss New Hampshire. As a vocalist, she won the talent competition at the Miss America pageant in 2017. She is currently recording her debut album at Rocking Horse Studio.

Coombes describes the origins of the name Rocking Horse Music Club: “Over the years we’ve developed a community of like-minded musicians, singers, and songwriters at Rocking Horse Studio. Many of the artists that work with us here at the studio have collaborated with each other and have appeared on each other’s records. Our group project, the Rocking Horse Music Club, developed out of those collaborations.” 

The group’s debut single, “Everywhere is Home,” a gospel-inspired song that features London’s Sing Gospel Choir, was released to critical acclaim in April 2018. The track was featured on radio in New England and received prime time airplay on BBC Radio and London Live in England. In June 2019, almost exactly a year after its release, Everywhere is Home received the award for Best Song – Gospel at the Independent Music Awards in New York City.

The band’s debut album, “Every Change of Seasons,” was released in September 2018, shortly before the band departed for a tour of the UK that saw them perform throughout the country, including numerous appearances at the BBC and a special engagement for the British Prime Minister.

Rocking Horse Music Club 2019: Justin Cohn: vocals, guitar Brian Coombes: keys, vocals Patrik Gochez: guitar, keys, vocals Brenden Harisaides: bass Myron Kibbee: guitars Mike McAdam: guitars Eric Wagley: drums/percussion

Album Track List: 
“Um & Aargh”
“Which Way the Wind Blows”
“Silver Song”
“Something Blue”
“Pulling Faces”
“Sleepfall: The Geese Fly West”

Here is a track-by-track summary of the album with comments from producer Brian Coombes: 

“Um & Aargh” (originally from “Sides”): Our take on Ant’s new wave/prog pop song from 1979… reminds me of Squeeze meets the Cars, with a touch of Genesis thrown in. Features Patrik Gochez on lead vocals. 

“Paperchase” (originally from “Wise After the Event”): Dreamy 12 string guitars and mellotron feature heavily on this one, along with a wonderful vocal from Justin Cohn. It sounds like something Genesis would have done circa 1976. 

“Which Way the Wind Blows” (originally from “The Geese & the Ghost”): We took Ant’s beautiful acoustic song, gave it a slight R&B feel, and then added an epic prog rock climax. This one features Noel McCalla (the lead singer on Mike Rutherford’s “Smallcreep’s Day”) on lead vocals and legendary Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett on the ending guitar solo. Where else can you hear Messrs. McCalla and Hackett performing together on an Anthony Phillips song? 

“Silver Song” (originally from “Sides” remaster): ‘Silver Song’ was originally intended as a single from 1973, featuring Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins. Our version features the incomparable Nick Magnus on the ending keyboard solo. 

“Something Blue” (originally from “Invisible Men” remaster): We were looking for a song for Evelyn Cormier to sing on the project. Ant and I looked through his catalog of unfinished and/or unreleased songs and presented a few to Evelyn. She loved ‘Something Blue.’ Her sultry vocal delivery led us down a smooth-jazz path with the arrangement that also features the amazing talents of Wesley Thurber on trumpet and Jeremy Harman on cello.

“Pulling Faces” (originally from “Wise After the Event”): This is one of my favorite productions on the record. The rhythm section performed brilliantly, Mike McAdam and Myron Kibbee played some great stuff, and Justin delivered a killer vocal. The song also features Steve Anderson from the Room on lead guitar. Mike and I toured with Steve back in the 1990s when he was with Grey Lady Down and we were in Tristan Park, so this collaboration was a cool virtual reunion. 

“Collections” (originally from “The Geese & the Ghost”): Just like ‘Which Way the Wind Blows,’ we simply couldn’t leave Ant’s beautiful song alone. The chord progression led us into Beatles territory, so we embraced that vibe. This one is really singer/pianist Pat Gochez’s arrangement and features members of his band on drums and bass. Also worthy of note is Myron Kibbee’s slide guitar and the choral background vocals.

“Sleepfall: The Geese Fly West” (originally from “The Geese & the Ghost”): One of Ant’s prettiest melodies. We developed the piece into something bigger, adding and changing instrumentation each sequence through the progression until it ends with a dramatic flourish. Features John Hackett (who performed on the original version back in the day) on flute and Kate St John from Dream Academy on oboe. 

“Nightmare” (originally from “Sides”): Ant’s prog rock classic instrumental in really a showcase for drummer Eric Wagley and bassist Brenden Harisaides. We added a lo-fi optigan/toy piano groove in the middle, and with Caroline Carter’s wailing vocal and John Helliwell’s melodic saxophone in the end section, I guess I’m displaying my Pink Floyd influences vividly on my sleeve.

Crystal Beth Unleashes Her Debut Album PUSH THRU on Trey Gunn’s 7D Media– October 18

For Immediate Release

Crystal Beth Unleashes Her Debut Album PUSH THRU on Trey Gunn’s 7D Media– October 18

Crystal Beth is what happens if you cross Frank Zappa, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, and Janice Joplin

Crystal Beth unleashes her first full-length studio record, PUSH THRU, a solo incarnation using wailing vocals, amplified clarinet, beat-boxing and electronics to weave a sonic universe all her own. The album will be released on Trey Gunn’s 7D Media on October 18, 2019. Beth has been described as “world music from an imaginary planet..quite compelling & magical” (Seattle Times), “a supremely versatile and virtuosic maverick” (The Stranger), and “one of the most fearless and innovative musicians in the city…” (Earshot Jazz). Known for crafting aural rituals that encompass industrial chants, alien disco breaks, heart gushings, and robot love songs, Crystal Beth redefines the possibilities of the voice and clarinet in tight experimental pop songs and undulating, cathartic noise cries. Crafting moments that ricochet between meditation and a full body purge, she is an electric, adrenaline inducing performer voted Seattle’s Best Classical Musician and nominated for NW Vocalist of the Year.

Rooted and defined by singing in her own syllabic language, Crystal Beth began in 2010 and she performs solo using loop pedals and delays, and a five-piece rock outfit (the Boom Boom Band) to craft and explore her idiosyncratic and distinctive original music. Seattle’s The Stranger magazine writes “You can find {Crystal Beth} fearlessly indulging her wildest creative inklings whenever she materializes in a musical forum…Crystal Beth & the Boom Boom Band falls somewhere between the grisly skronk-punk of Stickers and earthy freak-indie of tUnE-yArDs, but even fans of those left-of-center acts will be thrown for a loop. Wailing vocals not bound to any conventions but {her} own, paired with percussive ‘Bethnic chants,’ are set over freely drawn jazz figures and world-y rhythms.”

The music on this record is primal and visceral, sweet and expansive. It’s a completely solo work- recorded in 2 days of full live takes at Studio Litho with engineer Floyd Reitsma (Pearl Jam, Audioslave, Dave Matthews Band), mixed by Marcel Fernandez (Foo Fighters, ZZ Top, Molotov), and mastered by Michael Cozzi (Sky Cries Mary, Security Project, Bill Rieflin). With artwork by Mexican artist Ale De la Torre, Crystal Beth’s PUSH THRU is available on vinyl, CD, and digitally.

With the reflexes of a mongoose, Crystal Beth spins cathartic hardcore purge pop art punk – sweaty, trance inducing, heart-pouring – these are sonic cupcakes for your soul.

Crystal Beth has 20 years of professional international performances under her full name, Beth Fleenor, where she has been featured on recordings with polymaths including Wayne Horvitz, Jherek Bischoff, and Julie Slick, and includes performances with David Byrne, Terry Riley, Butch Morris, Bobby Previte, Trey Gunn, Robin Holcomb, Joshual Kohl/Degenerate Art Ensemble, Matana Roberts, Skerik, Tamar Kali, LaFrae Sci, Seattle Symphony, Wordless Music Orchestra, Samantha Boshnack, Led To Sea, Mirah, Soko, William O. Smith, Eyvind Kang, Malcom Goldstein, Jessika Kenney, Paris Hurley / Object As Subject, Timothy Young, John Tchicai, Gretta Harley, Mike Dillon, Briggan Krauss, Parenthetical Girls, Gino Yevdjevich/Kultur Shock, Amy Denio, and Shane Parish & Ryan Oslance / Ahleuchatistas – often doing upward of 170 shows a year in different genres.

Her work has been heard in 100,000 seat rock festivals, maximum-security prisons, and some of the most prestigious concert halls, museums, clubs and theaters in the world. Believing that “art is the discipline of being,” Fleenor uses sound to open the channels of communication between and within individuals and environments. Her work as been heard in live music, recordings, theater, performance art, installation, modern dance, and film. She believes that “an emphasis on creativity in a culture gives rise to creative solutions to social problems.”

Along with the straight-forward stamp of “excellent” from the New York Times, Fleenor has been called an “exceptional clarinetist” by the Seattle Times, and The Seattle Weekly writes, “If you’re getting tired of music that’s even remotely formulaic, Beth Fleenor is for you. Her experimental mixing of genres is powerful and refreshing.” Earshot Jazz has described her as “one of the most fearless and innovative musicians in the city…” and City Arts Magazine remarks “Beth Fleenor transcends labels – a multi-talented, creative force in Seattle.”

Crystal Beth began after Fleenor spent years collaborating with other musicians and artists, when she starting bursting at the seams with her own compositions. After years as a free improviser, Crystal Beth is Fleenor’s first project that focuses entirely on her original songs.

She speaks personally about the project, “I believe in the power of sound to clear the body and cleanse the soul. Music is a powerful tool as a listener and as a maker. It changes the state of things internally. I think we need a way to deal with ourselves so that we can better deal with each other….and when we have that, it leads us to a different way of conducting ourselves – a way of empathy, compassion, awareness, consideration, communication – a mutual respect of shared experience. We need focusing agents that help us process experiences – a way to make sense of it all – a way to get it to move through our bodies. Transcendent happiness, and deep tragedy, and everything in between, we need some kind of a ritual to catch up with ourselves in the present moment, to be able to move forward in a state of personal alignment. Crystal Beth is how I deal with myself, how I heal myself, how I Push Thru to the deepest parts of myself, and begin again every single day. My hope is that by sharing my most vulnerable self, perhaps it will offer a moment of the same catharsis and solace to others.”

Fleenor holds a Bachelor of Music in Jazz and Classical Clarinet Performance from Cornish College of the Arts. Her work has been supported by Jack Straw Productions, 4Culture, Allied Arts, Artist Trust, the Millay Colony for the Arts, and the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. Crystal Beth’s solo record PUSH THRU was brought to life through patrons on the Indiegogo platform. Born in Bristol TN/VA, she has been based in Seattle since 1998.

Here’s what the press have said about Beth Fleenor:

“Beth Fleenor transcends labels – a multi-talented, creative force in Seattle.” (City Arts Magazine)

“Crystal Beth creates her own sonic cult through stage thrashing her way through ‘cathartic hardcore purge pop,’ and wielding psychedelic clarinet melodies and bethnic chants.” (The Stranger )

“Crystal Beth – is an undeniable, unstoppable musical force, and one of Seattle’s treasures. She uses her voice and clarinet to channel strange, disturbing, and beautiful sounds into existence from beyond most of our imaginings. ….Beth’s chants and shrieks bypass the language centers of the brain and drill directly into the deepest, primal folds, beckoning you to surrender to sound, to find peace and clarity through a modicum of musical insanity.” (Ball of Wax)

“If you’re getting tired of music that’s even remotely formulaic, {Crystal Beth} is for you. Her experimental mixing of genres is powerful and refreshing.” (Seattle Weekly)

“…a supremely versatile and virtuosic maverick” (The Stranger)

 “exceptional clarinetist” (Seattle Times)

“Crystal Beth & the Boom Boom Band are what happens when accomplished jazz musicians decide to take a reckless holiday in the rock realm…. a kind of artful, deranged rock that recalls the Dirty Three and the Geraldine Fibbers at their most agitated and, alternately, at their most lugubrious.” (The Stranger)

“one of the most fearless and innovative musicians in the city…” (Seattle’s Earshot Jazz)

“alternately buoyant and ponderous, transfixing and exceptional” (City Arts Magazine)

 “….fare perhaps best described as world music from an imaginary planet….quite compelling and magical….” (Seattle Times)


“Some crazy combination of Bjork & Mike Patton, but with a voice truly her own.”

“Brian Eno meets the Beastie Boys in Mumbai and they have a spirited discussion about Alice Coltrane”   

“Crystal Beth is what happens if you cross Frank Zappa, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, and Janice Joplin” 

“Experimental primal scream punk meets world meets prog meets jazz meets the Dali Lama…and I’m not exaggerating…”.

The Pineapple Thief Announce The Release Of Their New Concert Album Hold Our Fire On November 15th, Capturing Their Performance of UK #1 Rock Album Dissolution

Reveal First Track “Threatening War”

First Ever North America Tour Begins With Drummer Gavin Harrison

Following the release of their latest studio album Dissolution, through Kscope, The Pineapple Thief, one of the leading lights of Europe’s experimental rock domain, announce their new concert album Hold Our Fire captured during their 16-date European headline tour in September 2018. The new album is due for release on 15th November, ahead of their debut North America tour in November / December.


Holding up a mirror to our chaotic, social media-fixated society, Dissolution is a modern masterpiece that pulses with charged emotion – the perfect album for the times. The album earned them their highest UK album chart entry to date at #36 and also #1 in Rock and Metal, as well as reaching #22 in the German album chart, #4 in the Netherlands Platomania album chart and #14 in the Finland album chart.

Hold Our Fire features eight concert performances of Dissolution tracks, including the singles “Far Below”, “Try As I Might”, “Threatening War” & “Uncovering Your Tracks”, as well as “3000 Days” from 2010 studio album Someone Here is Missing with extra guitars from new guitarist George Marios.

The band’s virtuoso drummer, also known for his work with Porcupine Tree and King Crimson, Gavin Harrison reveals more about their performances for Hold Our Fire: “I feel this live recording really captures the energy and spirit of the band playing together in front of a great enthusiastic crowd.”

It’s a feeling shared by frontman, composer and guitarist Bruce Soord: “It’s a great souvenir from such a memorable tour. I am really looking forward to taking the show over to North America in November and mixing the record reminded me just how much fun we have playing live.”

HAWKWIND Collaborator MICHAEL MOORCOCK & THE DEEP FIX Release Third Studio Album!

For Immediate Release

HAWKWIND Collaborator MICHAEL MOORCOCK & THE DEEP FIX Release Third Studio Album!

British Author/Musician MICHAEL MOORCOCK releases Live At The Terminal Café

Los Angeles, CA – As a novelist and short-story writer, Michael Moorcock stands with one foot planted firmly in reality and the other in fantasy. He has won and been short-listed for almost every award in the sf/fantasy world as well as in the wider literary world. The London Times named him one of the fifty best British writers since 1945. He scripted ‘The Land That Time Forgot’ film and his Jerry Cornelius novel ‘The Final Programme’ was filmed with Jon Finch. His much-imitated and most famous character, Elric, is currently optioned for TV/movies and the BBC have his Hawkmoon series under option. As a journalist, he has written for The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Financial Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The New Statesman, and The Spectator.

His music career has been no less laudatory. When performing with Hawkwind, Moorcock won a gold disc for Warrior on the Edge of Time. He has also worked with Blue Öyster Cult, Robert Calvert, Spirits Burning, and developed his own music project dubbed The Deep Fix. Moorcock’s long friendship with the legendary guitarist-bookscout Martin Stone (The Action/Mighty Baby, Savoy Brown, Chilli Willie) culminated in their decision to do an album together. They had grown up in the same town and had similar influences as musicians and readers. Both lived in Paris. The result is the new studio album Live At The Terminal Café.

Moorcock explains the genesis of the album: “Martin contacted Denis Baudrillart, the outstanding French drummer, and bassist/all-rounder Brad Scott and we rented a rehearsal studio. Eventually, the basic tracks were recorded in Montmartre and after that it was up to my friend Sean Orr in Texas to add fiddle and friend Don Falcone in California to perform his magic, adding Catherine Foreman and Jonathan Segel (Camper Van Beethoven), and our first psychedelic Country & Cajun record was ready to go. Like a lot of my music, it’s intended to complement certain books of mine, in this case, the ‘Blood’ trilogy set in Texas and Louisiana where the Earth’s polarities are reversed, with bizarre consequences.”

Moorcock wrote or co-wrote the 11 songs, sings lead vocals on all tracks, and also performed harmonica on two songs on Live At The Terminal Café. The album was mixed and produced by Don Falcone, who runs the music collective Spirits Burning.

Both the CD package and vinyl version include full lyrics, plus artwork by Walter Simonson (best known for Marvel Comics’ Thor), who drew Moorcock’s DC series ‘Michael Moorcock’s Multiverse’.

Track List:
1. The Effects Of Entropy
2. Terminal Café
3. The Dream Of Eden
4. Sam Oakenhurst’s Story
5. St. James Infirmary
6. The Heat Of The New Orleans Night
7. Lou
8. A Man Like Me
9. Mississippi Turn Round
10. Blood
11. Eden Revisited

Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign Release New Single Feat. Missing Persons Legend Dale Bozzio

For Immediate Release

Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign Release New Single Feat. Missing Persons Legend Dale Bozzio

“Somewhere There Forever” ft. Dale Bozzio by Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign

Dale Bozzio, legendary lead singer of Missing Persons, makes a special guest appearance and joins Mindy Milburn on vocals to record Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign’s newest single, “Somewhere There Forever.” This is a quirky, eclectic song about a person who doesn’t want to let go of someone they love and miss very much, but that person is now only in their memories.

“Walking down a graveyard path near here, 
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears,
You are calling so loquacious, You are falling so impatient
Then I realize you have disappeared”

Along with Dale Bozzio, Mindy Milburn & Laura Espinoza, “Somewhere There Forever” also features some of LA’s most talented musicians including Geoff Pearlman (Echo in the Canyon Band); Michael Bluestein (Foreigner); Matt Denis; Noel Jasso, Miranda Miller & Julian Tomarin.

Listen to “Somewhere There Forever”:

“’Somewhere There Forever’ takes me back to the ’90s with No Doubt’s ‘Tragic Kingdom’ and ‘Letters to Cleo.’ This is the sound that I had hoped those bands would continue with on the radio, but that never happened. You continue to create music we wish we heard on popular radio. Great job.” – Warren Kurtz, Goldmine Music Magazine

“Somewhere There Forever” will be released world-wide on October 1, 2019 on all major music platforms including: iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify.

This is the second single released this year by Laura Espinoza and Lunden Reign. Their song “Follow Me to the Sun” was released in April, 2019. Both will be combined into the bands upcoming third album slated for release in mid 2020. Both songs written by Laura Espinoza.

The band features Laura Espinoza – guitar; Mindy Milburn -lead vocals; Matt Denis -bass & Noel Jasso – Drums and will be performing in the fall on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.

“Somewhere There Forever”

Music & Lyrics by: Laura Espinoza

Walking down a graveyard path near here
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears
You are calling so loquacious
You are falling so impatient
Then I realize you have disappeared

Is this really a life without you?
An hourglass without sand

When I met you I never ever
Thought I’d see you there
Lying somewhere there forever.

Driving down the coast without a care
Speculating you are sitting there
Music blaring, people staring
Moonlight glitters, thrills we’re sharing
Then I realize you aren’t really here

Am I really just holding onto
Dreams without you here
Venerating, just speculating
You are waiting there
Waiting somewhere there forever.

This is just how I feel
This is why life always matters
This is just how I deal
When it’s time for the ever-after

Is this really a life without you?
An hourglass without sand
When I met you I never ever
Thought I’d see you there
Lying somewhere there forever

Walking down a graveyard path near here
Drinking in the moonshine chasing fears
You are calling so loquacious
You are falling so impatient 
Then I realize you have disappeared
Then I realize you have disappeared
Then I realize you aren’t really here

District 97 is undoubtedly the most musically adventurous rock band in the world to feature an American Idol Top 10 Female Finalist.

Through world tours and a stream of studio and live releases, the band has garnered a worldwide fanbase; collaborating with John Wetton and drawing praise from Bill Bruford, Mike Portnoy and other rock luminaries along the way. Their forthcoming album “Screens” and its accompanying live show promises to be their most ambitious effort to date.

“We had a blast playing ‘Screens’ live earlier this year in North America, and we can’t wait to bring that and some of our older material across the pond for the very first time. To do so whilst teaming up with incredible bands like Flyiing Colors, Goblin, and Maschine make this tour an absolute must see.”
