Zaricor Jackson, Jr. and Lillie Jackson of SoulDirection1 announced this week the release of their new contemporary Christian album, 'To the Least of These,' a compilation of 13 songs they have written to inspire and uplift most anyone who is experiencing a difficult time in their lives or for the simple enjoyment of listening to good music.

Indie artists, and husband and wife team, Zaricor Jackson, Jr. and Lillie Jackson, are the face of the music and also run a non-profit street ministry, Sold Out Souldoers for Jesus Christ Street Ministry.

"Souldoers is a play on the word, soldiers, which explains why we wear camouflage," Lillie says. "Combining our music with our ministry was a natural move. We are advocates for the homeless and want to spread the word however we can."

Zaricor says that their music has played on radio stations around the country and has received a great deal of positive responses.

Connie Ribas, vice president of administration at Indie Connect, Inc., a business club that educates and connects indie artists and music professionals, worldwide, says that she listened to the CD while running errands.

"The first two songs are music to get speeding tickets by. Loved it!" says Ribas.

Ribas adds that she shared it with her husband, Vinnie Ribas, the CEO of Indie Connect, who typically listens to a few seconds of a track and then skips to the next, and the next and the next.

"This time, he just let it play all the way through," she says. "We talked about the album, the music, the instrumentation and the possibilities."

Zaricor and Lillie have a passion for practicing random acts of kindness and hope that through their music and ministry they can inspire others to practice the same. Their heart is to help the homeless.

"We are baby boomers who continue to reach for our dreams," Zaricor says. "We want to help those who need it most and we won't give up until we've done all that we feel we can."

Their Christian music has no specific genre attached to it. It crosses many musical borders ranging from contemporary, gospel, and Latin to country western, Christian rock and worship music. A second CD is in the works.

A music video can be viewed on YouTube at http://youtu.be/4vjW9cTPcm4 and songs can be purchased on CD Baby at: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/souldirection1 .

Music can also be auditioned on SoundCloud at:

ARTICLE:

When elementary school teachers plan for their holiday entertainment programs, they turn to the Ruth Roberts' children's music catalog of song collections for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, and more. "Ruth Roberts' specialty songs have been delighting children since 1973," states Susan Nicoletti, Director of Operations for Goldenrod Music and Michael Brent Publications, the publishing companies that oversee Ruth Roberts' songs.

"And when it comes to Christmas music for children, there are sleigh loads of choices," Nicoletti adds.

Titles of albums and individual songs for the holiday season include "Cactus Christmas Tree," "Christmas Cookies and Holiday Hearts," "Holiday Alphabet," and "The Toyland Christmas Train." While those tunes are for kids of all ages, there are also songs that appeal to older children, such as "Santa and the Three Scrooges," "Six Little Snowflakes," "The Three O'clock Rehearsal of the Christmas Musicale," and "Winter Holiday."

That list doesn't even include the most popular of all of Ruth Roberts' Christmas offerings - that honor goes to "Christmas Songs That Tickle Your Funny Bone" which includes one of the songs currently available on YouTube, "Jolly Gent Who Jingles."

Now, this treasure trove is being offered through iTunes for the first time. "Digital distribution is great," Nicoletti states. "Music teachers used to have to order Christmas music through direct mail, and while we're still fine with that method, we're pleased to be fully modernized, too!"

Whether children are at home, at school, or in special needs situations, youngsters are pleased to sing-along. "Many of these song collections are part of plays and skits that Ruth wrote," Nicoletti adds. "It is gratifying to get letters and e-mails from happy parents and educators using these materials in regular and special needs programs," Nicoletti proudly states.

Author: Shady Hill Records
Dateline: Los Angeles, California (LOS ANGELES, Calif.)  | Wed, 04 Dec 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “The magical time of year between Thanksgiving Day and New Year's Day is filled with thoughts of family celebrations, colorful decorations, gift-giving, gatherings of friends, and the fun of kissing under the mistletoe. 'All of those wonderful things are in this song,' states country music artist Sandra Piller, singer of 'Mistletoe and You.'”



ARTICLE:

The magical time of year between Thanksgiving Day and New Year's Day is filled with thoughts of family celebrations, colorful decorations, gift-giving, gatherings of friends, and the fun of kissing under the mistletoe. "All of those wonderful things are in this song," states country music artist Sandra Piller, singer of "Mistletoe and You," now available on iTunes, Amazon, and the website of her record label, Shady Hill Records.

"It was a joy to write this song and have Sandra record it," notes Jane Bach, co-writer of the song with David Scheibner. Bach also produced the recording at sessions in Nashville. "We thought about all the lovely moments that everyone enjoys about the season, from the big issues like peace on earth to the simple pleasure of sipping eggnog around the fireplace." With a glance upwards to a sprig of green leaves and red berries pinned above the doorway, she added "And, of course, we thought about kissing your love under the mistletoe."

The video for "Mistletoe and You" features the lyrics of the song superimposed over the traditional yule log burning brightly in the fireplace.

"It is such fun to work with Jane," notes Piller. "Not only is she a terrific writer but she knows just how to guide artists as a producer when we're all in the studio." As a veteran music professional in Nashville, Bach penned number one hits by Reba McIntire and Ray Price, as well as hit songs for many other country artists.

Shady Hill Records ( http://www.shadyhillrecords.com/ ) was founded several years ago to record, distribute, and foster the cause of contemporary country artists whose work respects and reflects the strong traditions of the roots of American music.

Author: Valiant Horizon
Dateline: Atlanta, Georgia (ATLANTA, Ga.)  | Tue, 26 Nov 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Atlanta-based record label Valiant Horizon today announced that Rodger Forrest is the latest musician to join its artist roster. With a number of EDM recordings and European DJ performances already under his belt, Rodger is positioned to take the dance music world by storm. Influenced by many genres, he comfortably produces music in a number of spaces including electro, trance, deep house and progressive.”



ARTICLE:

Atlanta-based record label Valiant Horizon today announced that Rodger Forrest is the latest musician to join its artist roster. With a number of EDM recordings and European DJ performances already under his belt, Rodger is positioned to take the dance music world by storm. Influenced by many genres, he comfortably produces music in a number of spaces including electro, trance, deep house and progressive.

In addition, Rodger's DJ work includes performances in Holland and on the Baeleric island of Mallorca right near Ibiza.

Rodger's first Valiant Horizon single "Blue Bay" is an intoxicating EDM gem set for worldwide release today.

Rodger recently moved to Willemstad, Curacao after years of living in Breda, Netherlands - which happens to be the home also of two current DJ Magazine top 10 DJs Tiesto and Hardwell. So he certainly comes from a place that has an established history of cultivating top-notch DJ and EDM talent. With his current life in Curacao, Rodger is embracing his Euro music roots while intertwining them with his present country home where he currently has a DJ residence at Mambo Beach Club.

Working in so many areas of the dance music realm, Rodger has an interesting music production style where he may start off by playing a melody on his keyboard or piano and build from there to determine the style of music it may become - as opposed to at the start - which can make for surprising and striking results. From calm and suave synth lines to ear-pleasing trance and deep/electro sounds, Rodger produces a unique mix that is ripe for the dance floor as well easy electronic listening outside of the club world.

Focused mainly in the deep tech/trance space, Rodger's first Valiant Horizon single "Blue Bay" is an intoxicating EDM gem set for worldwide release on November 26, 2013 via major online retailers including iTunes and Amazon.

About Rodger Forrest:

Rodger Forrest is a 22-year old rising Dutch DJ/producer on the international electronic dance music scene. After years of practicing with multiple digital audio workstations, Rodger decided in 2012 to study at an established music production studio and is now a professional studio engineer and beat producer. With his own unique sound consisting of elements such as electro, trance, deep house and progressive, he is certainly making a powerful statement with his music through his stunning capability of combining different melodies into one peaceful harmonic concept. In addition, he has a number of DJ performance credits including ones on the Baeleric island of Mallorca near Ibiza and also in Holland. Rodger currently resides in Willemstad, Curacao after years of living in Breda, Netherlands. Because Rodger is still young and fresh with his music, we expect to hear a lot more from him and his EDM tracks in the years to come.

The Bob Moog Foundation Announces Raffle for Iconic Minimoog Model D Signed by Gary Numan

Author: The Bob Moog Foundation
Dateline: Asheville, North Carolina (ASHEVILLE, N.C.)  | Wed, 20 Nov 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “The Bob Moog Foundation is proud to announce a raffle for a vintage Minimoog synthesizer, signed by English electronic pop music icon Gary Numan. The raffle runs from November 20, 2013 through December 31, 2013. This raffle is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; a chance to own the most sought-after vintage synthesizer of all time.”



ARTICLE:

The Bob Moog Foundation is proud to announce a raffle for a vintage Minimoog synthesizer, signed by English electronic pop music icon Gary Numan. The raffle runs from November 20, 2013 through December 31, 2013. This raffle is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; a chance to own the most sought-after vintage synthesizer of all time.

Tickets are $20 each or 6 for $100. Only 1200 tickets will be sold. Tickets can be purchased on the Foundation's online store.

The Minimoog(R), created in 1970 by R.A. Moog Inc., is a portable synthesizer that featured the most often used aspects of the Moog modular synthesizers -- simplified and repackaged for use by musicians who sought basic electronic sounds in a more expressive and portable package. This compact synthesizer, with its functional design and great sound, caused a musical instrument revolution which left no genre of music untouched by synthesis. Even today, despite amazing advancements in technology and 43 years of synthesizer production from many companies, many keyboard players consider the Minimoog to be the best synthesizer ever made.

Gary Numan, best known for his hits "Are 'Friends' Electric" (as Tubeway Army) and "Cars," and now enjoying a resurgence in his career, performed at the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit in October of 2013 and signed the synthesizer while visiting backstage with the Bob Moog Foundation. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance not only to own a vintage Minimoog, but to own what might be the only Minimoog ever signed by Gary Numan.

The Minimoog being offered, serial number 4245, has been modified by Rich Walborn, former Chief Engineer at Moog Music, Inc. (Buffalo), with the following:

* Roland MIDI to CV conversion modifications: The Minimoog has been modified to integrate with a Roland MIDI to CV converter which allows features such as aftertouch to affect the sound production of the synthesizer.

* Second Oscillator Sync: The 2nd oscillator's waveform can be forced to restart with the first oscillator's waveform, causing the desirable effect called "sync."

* CV and Gate Out jacks: This Minimoog, unlike a stock Minimoog, or even a Voyager, can control other synthesizers via CV, allowing you to play them with the Minimoog's keyboard

* Bend: the ability to change the range of the pitch wheel has been vastly augmented

This raffle is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; a chance to own the most sought-after vintage synthesizer of all time for a mere $20; a chance to have what might be the only Minimoog ever signed by popular electronic music icon Gary Numan; a chance to have a synthesizer modified by Moog engineer-to-the-stars, Rich Walborn; but most of all, the opportunity to support Bob Moog's legacy by supporting the educational work of the Bob Moog Foundation.

More information about the raffle can be found at http://www.bobmoogfoundation.org/ .

Tickets can be purchased directly at: http://bit.ly/I4QTd8 (shortlink to BMF Store page).

The Bob Moog Foundation ( www.bobmoogfoundation.org ) honors the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog through its mission of igniting creativity at the intersection of music, history, science, and innovation. Its projects include Dr. Bob's Sound School, a nine-week curriculum teaching the science of sound through the magic of music, the Archive Preservation Initiative, an effort to preserve and protect an extensive and historic collection of archival materials that help tell the history of electronic music genre, and a future museum where the first two initiatives will converge. The Bob Moog Foundation is an independent, donor-driven 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It is not affiliated with Moog Music, Inc.

ARTICLE:

It's never too early in your child's development to talk turkey - to teach them the meaning of the Thanksgiving holiday - and Ruth Roberts Music is making it fun with the release of "The First Thanksgiving," a collection of sing-along songs, all newly digitized and available on iTunes.

The album contains 10 tracks - five song performances and musical accompaniment for each of the songs. Titles include "Over the River and Through the Woods," "Picture Talk," "A Pilgrim Thank You Song," and "Come, Ye Thankful People." All songs are appropriate for children in grades K-through-6.

"The album's songs were adapted from the Native American young people's musical, 'The Legend of the Twelve Moons'," states Susan Nicoletti, Director of Operations for Goldenrod Music and Michael Brent Publications, the publishing companies that oversee Ruth Roberts' songs. "The idea behind Thanksgiving is told in a story called 'Small Paleface and Bright Squirrel' as they find the true meaning of brotherhood and friendship by learning each other's customs," Nicoletti says.

"These songs can be used at home or in schools since they're all 'G-rated,'" Nicoletti states, referencing her five years as a member of the ratings board for the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

Ruth Roberts' children's music career included working with TV's Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) but Roberts also wrote pop, gospel, rock, blues, and country songs.

Children’s Choir Moves Nation, World, with Performance at Earthquake-ruined Church

Author: World Mind Network
Dateline: TAGBILARAN CITY, Philippines (TAGBILARAN CITY, Philippines)  | Wed, 23 Oct 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “World Mind Network today announced that The Loboc Children's Choir provided a spontaneous moment of inspiration and hope to the quake-ravaged Philippines on Thursday, with an impromptu performance of Josh Groban's 'The Prayer.'”



ARTICLE:

World Mind Network today announced that The Loboc Children's Choir provided a spontaneous moment of inspiration and hope to the quake-ravaged Philippines on Thursday, with an impromptu performance of Josh Groban's "The Prayer."

According to Sarah Mendel of Friends Beyond Borders, an NGO helping with quake aid, the group approached the ABS-CBN news team as it was reporting in front of the ruined Loboc Church, inside of which the choral group had performed many times.

The church, built by the Spanish in 1602, has survived hundreds of earthquakes, but was completely destroyed by the October 17 7.2 magnitude temblor.

The quake killed at least 198, injured hundreds, and severely damaged more than 19,000 structures.

As a result of their heroic act, the Choir has won the Adelina Award, the most prestigious Humanitarian honor offered in the Philippines.

The Loboc Children's Choir has been in existence since 1980, and consists of 30 school children from the Loboc Central Elementary School in Loboc, Bohol, Philippines. The children are between nine and thirteen years of age.

A scale model of what the rebuilt church might look like, which honors the original architecture but incorporates modern design elements to help prevent future earthquake damage, will be circulated among schools in the region to assist with fundraising and recovery efforts. The new church will be rededicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Loboc.

The choir's performance can be seen here: (CBN TV News website) http://goo.gl/fpFOsn .

ARTICLE:

The Pit Stop Players, a 14-member instrumental ensemble composed of veteran Broadway pit musicians, launch their fifth season with a concert of Halloween-themed music "The Pit Stop Players and the Pendulum," on October 28, 2013.

Founder and music director Joshua Rosenblum says, "This is a collection of great scary music from all genres, including unexpected re-imaginings and outrageous concert premieres. Be ready for some chills!"

The selections include themes from film (David Shire's score to George Romero's "Monkey Shines"), opera (Stephen Schwartz's "Seance on a Wet Afternoon"), TV (Danny Elfman's theme to "Tales From the Crypt"), musical theater (Rosenblum's overture to his forthcoming musical "The Haunted Hotel") and the concert hall (Kenji Bunch's "Arachnophobia").

WHAT: "The Pit Stop Players and the Pendulum"
WHEN: Monday, October 28, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: Christ & Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church, 120 West 69th Street, New York, N.Y.
TICKETS: $25 ($15 for students); children in costume free; SmartTix ( http://www.smarttix.com/show.aspx?showcode=PIT7 ); or CASH ONLY at the door.
INFO: Pit Stop Players - http://rosenblummusic.com/pitstop.html .

In addition, the concert will feature the concert premiere of "The Pit and the Pendulum" by Nox Arcana, the self-described American Neoclassical darkwave/dark ambient musical duo, and "Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry Cannibals," by American composer/inventor Raymond Scott.

The Pit Stop Players, who collectively have played in pit orchestras for over 130 Broadway productions, include Steve Kenyon, Marc Phaneuf, and Don McGeen, woodwinds; Chris Jaudes, trumpet; Wayne Goodman, trombone; Dan Culpepper, horn; Robin Zeh and Paul Woodiel, violins; Alissa Smith, viola; Mairi Dorman-Phaneuf, cello; Grace Paradise, harp; Jeff Carney, bass; Gregory Landes, percussion; and Garah Landes, piano.

The players will be wearing Halloween costumes, and audience members are encouraged to come dressed for the occasion as well.

About The Pit Stop Players:

The Pit Stop Players, founded in 2009 by conductor/composer Joshua Rosenblum, is a fourteen-member instrumental ensemble comprised of some of New York's top freelance musicians, commonly regarded as the best instrumentalists in the world. Repertoire includes arrangements and transcriptions of great pieces from the recent past (encompassing numerous genres), but the primary emphasis is on new compositions that are both challenging and immediately engaging, written and orchestrated specifically for the group by today's most exciting creative talents.

Since their first concert in February 2010, the Players have performed works by Bernstein, Ginastera, Shostakovich, John Psathas, William Bolcom, Danny Elfman, Paul McCartney, and Freddy Mercury, among others, as well as world premiere compositions by Steven Burke, David Chesky, Gary William Friedman, Jamie Lawrence, Fay Wang, Steve Kenyon, Josh Schmidt, and Michael Starobin. Other highlights have included the group's performance of "The Rite of Spring" in a specially-commissioned new chamber arrangement, as well as Rosenblum's own "Young Person's Guide to the Pit Stop Players," with special guest narrator Cynthia Nixon.

Cited by "The New York Times" for their "flair," "spirited readings," and "playfully cohesive programs," "making an hour-long serving of modern works not just palatable but enticing," the Pit Stop Players have take their place at the cutting edge of New York's cultural landscape, bringing exciting contemporary music to new audiences, and upending conventional assumptions about concert programming.
