T8iana – THE SIGN You Have Been Looking For

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Australian Pop Singer Songwriter, T8iana, who was recently featured in Rolling Stone Magazine's Global Artist Spotlight, has often talked about her dark past which involved assault and bullying by strong male figures, as she was growing up as a trans kid.

She has released her latest single 'The Sign' on 13th May and it has garnered a lot of interest on various Spotify playlists. The single also climbed up to the Top 100 UK iTunes Daily Dance charts.

"It has been like a dream come true!" says T8iana of her recent chart successes preceding this one.

Her single "What Have You Gotta Say now?" released in Feb. 2022 was a Top 100 hit on UK iTunes Daily Dance charts. The EDM flavored "Your Lover From An Alternate Reality" - a song she wrote specifically for her large, predominantly male following on Instagram, released in April 2022 also peaked at #31 on the UK dance charts.

In the latest song 'The Sign," T8iana's attempt to express dark topics of feeling trapped and persecuted as a trans woman (in a world that still stigmatises the LGTBI community), in such a fun and positive dance format, needs to be applauded. T8iana's embrace of her freedom is on full display in this stunning musical arrangement with sounds reminiscent of the heyday of disco, amalgamated with an EDM feel and topped up with her crisp vocals.

She has come a long way in not only standing up against her detractors but also lighting up the way for hundreds of LGTBI youth with her uplifting club friendly dance tracks with inspiring lyrics.

Pop R&B Singer-Songwriter JADE Debuts with Celestial Original Dance Single ‘Lucky Stars’ Airing on MTV Spankin’ New and BETJams

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Classy in style, massive in appeal and savvy beyond her years, singer/songwriter and actress JADE has taken her time to learn her craft and study the business before jumping into it. The strategy is set to pay off like triple-cherry jackpots with her vibrant debut single and video, "Lucky Stars" (dropping on the artist's own TS2 Records imprint). Young enough to know she hasn't figured out all the how's and why's of love, JADE { @thisisjadej ) sings about finally taking that plunge into the sweet unknown with a man worth betting on.

"The phrase, 'I count my lucky stars' usually means that a bad situation has been avoided and a good outcome has occurred," JADE explains. "In the same way, there is a hint throughout the song that my man and I may not make it. There's a risk... but it's worth it."

Musically, as produced by Bobby Genius, "Lucky Stars" creeps up on the listener with a sexy guitar refrain followed by fittingly spacey synthesizer washes and a chattering beat. Vocally, JADE sings lead and her own backgrounds, making for a clean intimate delivery as she enunciates her whip-smart & wistful lyrical offering.

The single plus an early edit of JADE's "Lucky Stars" video (directed by Jovan Thomas with cinematography by Sam Wilkerson and editing by Elnar Mukhamed Yarov) were privately premiered to an SRO focus group of industry professionals at legendary

The Village Recorders in Westwood to a rousing response. JADE led the presentation herself, sharing her vision for her debut and the career she has been carefully calculating with her hand-picked team of experts. While the single is being intentionally targeted to young females and males, its overall appeal, thanks to its catchy melody and mind-bending chorus, actually spans across all ages - demo-graphically speaking 16 to 65.

"Lucky Stars" is the inaugural single from JADE's April 22nd-slated debut EP, "CONTACT," which will reveal even more of this exciting new artist's gifts.

With early response being so positive, Paradise Valley, Arizona-native and USC graduate JADE remains earthy and realistic as she finally releases her first musical offering to the universe. As the qualities of her moniker and birthstone reveal, JADE is poised with luminous luster on the surface with sublime good fortune and serenity at the core. Watch her work her magic!

Vandi Lynnae announces Christmas Album ‘Holiday Healing’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- 2021 has been an impressive year for singer-songwriter Vandi Lynnae, who has continued to release a steady flow of singles, from heartfelt ballads to EDM remixes over the past twelve months. Her latest release, 'Holiday Healing,' is a Christmas album that will be available on the 24th of December 2021. Throughout December, Lynnae will be releasing a Christmas-themed single every Friday leading up to the album release.

Like many, Vandi Lynnae is inspired by the festive period. "I love Christmas, and I put a lot of my own family's traditions and memories into these songs. I love that the holiday season is a time to step away from the stress and hustle and bustle of everyday life and be with the people you love most. These songs celebrate the wonder of the season and togetherness. It is a time when people come together," Lynnae explains.

'Holiday Healing' gave Lynnae a chance to cherish the joy of the season while incorporating it into her own signature sound, experimenting with genres and styles. The record features original Christmas tracks by Lynnae, and re-imaginings of Christmas classics like 'Birthday of a King,' 'Angels We Have Heard on High' and 'Away in the Manger.' The digital album will also include three remixed tracks and an instrumental composition.

Opening the album is Vandi Lynnae's own Christmas song 'Party Like It's Christmas Day,' a fun and energetic introduction to the record, embellished with all the festive goodness of ringing bells and lyrical sing-along. Lynnae's enchanting voice stands out, layered over harmonies and rhythmic cheer, a celebration of the album's offerings. 'Follow the Winter Star' is an emotive contrast, with dreamy piano and haunting vocals, driven by the nostalgic feel of steady drums and accentuated by strings and bells.

Vandi Lynnae's cover songs also take on a life of their own. In her version of 'In the Bleak Midwinter' Lynnae's mother, Bobbi Bye, features on the track. Shining a light on Bye'soperatic voice, the classic song is re-imagined with a landscape of choir, accompanied by the simplicity of strings, piano and acoustic guitar. This isn't the only collaboration on the album, with Lynnae's patron Lloyd Crain featuring on 'Go Tell It on the Mountain,' which embraces a Country feel.

Classic Christmas songs like 'Come All Ye Faithful' illustrate Lynnae's skills of taking a well-loved song and giving it a complete makeover. With acoustic guitar and percussive instrumentation, the song is driven by a bouncing synth bass, tied together with emotive vocals and mesmerizing harmonies. Remixes like 'My Gift Is You' offer festive production, fully wrapped up with catchy melodies and dance-worthy beats, ready for any Christmas party.

'Holiday Healing' is an eclectic mix of genres and styles that exhibit Vandi Lynnae's skills as a songwriter and a singer. Unafraid to experiment with her sound, Lynnae's heart remains at the center of it all and this album is a gift for all those who listen.

Sue Larsen, Singer-Songwriter, Releases her Third Single, Which Pokes Fun at Not Accepting a Relationship Ending

NORTH CASTLE, N.Y. -- Bijoux Music Group LLC announced Sue Larsen's next pop single, "You Will Always Be There" is being released today, under the Bijoux Music Group LLC label and produced by Sue Larsen. It can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Pandora and all other streaming platforms. It is also available on Amazon and the iTunes Store for download as a mp3.

"You Will Always Be There" is about a relationship destined to end and the struggle someone has when they resist that reality. In the music video, Sue doesn't take out the violin and say feel sorry for me. Rather she has fun with it.

As Sue explains, "Now, I was much younger when I wrote this one...that explains the naivety at best or the delusion at worst. I certainly know now all relationships must eventually end. Well, this is cool because at my age...and some of you know what that is...I get to play a desperate, afraid to be alone, afraid of not being loved, afraid of not belonging, afraid of not being or doing enough, afraid of being afraid type of person. Perfect!"

Sue Larsen is an independent artist who has been crafting songs for over forty years. She has recreated herself learning and doing the pieces of this "DIY" music business as an independent artist and she is hoping others may be inspired to change what they are doing or being after seeing her story. As Sue explains, "No matter what age you are, following your dreams, passions, or creative ideas is always a possibility if one is willing to do the work. I know so many people who feel stuck or caged in by their own choices and beliefs. There are always choices although, they may not be easy to make."

Sue Larsen is out of North Castle, New York and has lived in Westchester County, N.Y., her entire life. She has been in the music business for 40 plus years as a performer/songwriter and she retired a couple of years ago from her human resource position so that she could learn what was needed in regards to this "new" DIY music business.

She set up her own publishing and recording company, Bijoux Music Group LLC, and has a home studio. She has been her own producer and engineer for the recording, mixing, and mastering of her previously released songs and the track she just released. She also performed all the vocals and instrumentation on each song. Ms. Larsen also learned how to produce and edit the music videos for her songs.

She released "Sleeping Alone Again" in Dec. of 2020 and it made it to Pandora's premium services and radio play so, as she put it, "Being it was my first attempt at this, I thought that was pretty cool." Her second song, "Hardly Hiding," a song about unexpected love, was featured on WHUD 100.7 FM along with an interview with host Andy Bale this past April.

About Bijoux Music Group LLC:

Bijoux Music Group LLC(R) is a registered trademark in the US and is a publishing company and record label. It also supplies live music in the greater New York area and creates audio-visual presentations for personal and business use.

About Sue Larsen:

Sue Larsen has reinvented herself within her 40+ years in the entertainment field and has come full circle. From performing her own songs starting at the age of 17 in NYC nightclubs, to performing "cover songs" for a myriad of events and gatherings, back to songwriting and producing her own songs for worldwide distribution. It is Ms. Larsen's hope that her songs may resonate with others and help people heal from their more challenging experiences.

Singer Tony Hightower Brings Real Jazz to The Young Generation on ‘Legacy’ Sophomore Project Richly Inspired by His Jazz Singer Mother Theresa Hightower

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Singer/Songwriter Tony Hightower is taking up the mantle to be a bridge that ushers R&B audiences into Jazz - Real Jazz. With years of experience as a singer, drummer, and actor (easily recognizable from his work in Tyler Perry movies/TV/stage productions), Atlanta-native Hightower is still just getting started.

His sophomore project, "Legacy," finds Hightower moving assuredly from original compositions such as the soulful scat-laced "All to the Good," the seductive Brazilian bossa nova "Rendezvous" and the tender Al Jarreau-esque love beg "I Need You" to swingin' covers of Earth, Wind & Fire's classic "Can't Hide Love," a mean shuffle boogie through Al Green's "Love and Happiness" and a smoldering tiptoe through the 1929 Andy Razaf standard "Gee, Baby, Ain't I Good To You" made further famous in 1944 by

Tony's greatest vocal hero, Nat "King" Cole.

"I didn't have a choice about doing this music," Hightower confesses. "My mother, Theresa Hightower, lived her life onstage. She was a fiery and versatile vocal pro by age 16 and had me when she was 19. So, you could say I've been performing since the womb." Growing up under a local legend mother - a Funk-Rocker who could sing anything and mentored many singers coming behind her - Tony learned music first-hand from Bobby Blue Bland and the Platters to Mother's Finest. And as mother Theresa evolved as a first-class singer - shifting her focus to Jazz that resulted in her historic residency at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in once fiercely segregated Buckhead. GA - so, too, did Tony's taste begin to broaden.

"When my mom followed Freddy Cole at The Ritz Carlton, he became a fan and then they became friends. Later, Mr. Cole called to ask me to accompany him on drums. By then, he was more like family. One day, he told me in earnest, 'You need to start writing your own songs. We need new songs!' I hesitated but by his nudging and God's, I started on some songs that worked. My hope was to create The New Standard, thus the title/concept of my debut CD."

A man of the Hip Hop/R&B generation, Tony is known for singing with Soul luminaries such as Gerald Levert, Lionel Richie, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and OutKast. However, the last 7 years have found him totally devoted to jazz, on a mission into bring the real deal to fresh young audiences in memory of his mother and Mr. Freddy Cole, at whose funeral he tearfully blessed in song. "I worked hard on my first record to ensure that my tone was tight and that my songwriting mirrored the timeless songs of yesterday. On Legacy, my sound is evolving into something that's more uniquely soulful and 'me' that I believe the pure jazz world will respect but that can also play in the soul-pop world like Al Jarreau was able to do."

No statement could be truer with one listen to Hightower's divinely varied latest offering, Legacy, so titled as a tribute to the memory of his mother who was honored with a proclamation from the city of Atlanta and October 29 being declared 'Theresa Hightower Day' upon her passing. "My mother was my best friend," Tony says softly. "We used to always have this one debate. I'd say music is about melody. She insisted it was all about the lyrics."

At a recent intimate performance during the Candlelight Series at Piedmont Park, Hightower sang a repertoire of all Ellington music show. Onstage, he spied a pair of pretty ladies who could not have been older than 22. His heart was gladdened. "When I say these things, I really mean it. My influences stretch from Mel Torme' and Marvin Gaye to Charlie Wilson (lead singer of The GAP Band) and Aaron Hall (lead singer of Guy)," Hightower concludes. "I'm finding ways to sing that makes all of that appropriate. That's what makes me unique as a Jazz singer."

"LEGACY" CD debuts November 5, 2021

New Jersey Native Pop Singer-Songwriter EM Scores Top 20 Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart Single – ‘Hear Your Love’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- In an era starved for young Pop artists with something significant to share, singer/songwriter Em (Emily Wachspress) delivers with her music and her message in her latest album, "DEAR LIFE," a ginger breeze of mood, truth, and soulful Pop. "This album represents a big chapter in my life of growth and empowerment," says Em.

Following the crossover Pop and Urban successes of her thoughtful "Say What You Mean" single is a transfixing second offering entitled "Hear Your Love" concerning two lovers - eternally united no matter whether they may be physically apart or even separated by lifetimes. As with all of Em's songs, it is accompanied by an epic video.

"My family is from Russia so I'm taking it back to the mid to late 1800s where my mother country began to boom in the arts - our 'romantic' era.'

"Hear Your Love" music video: https://youtu.be/DMwoH9Lq3Xs

The lead single of "DEAR LIFE" was the dynamic "Say What You Mean" which was promoted with a sensually and supernaturally mesmerizing video helmed by Parris Mayhew. Em is dressed in a provocative gown, her raven hair streaked in white, deep red lipstick setting off bewitching green eyes and mystical elements such as ghostly clones, tarot cards and raindrops that turn to tears.

"'Say What You Mean' is about wanting someone to love me with every fiber of their being...to be as sure of our love as I am," she adds.

The title track "DEAR LIFE" speaks to the universality of trusting in a higher power. "It was inspired by a near-death experience," Em confesses.

"Say What You Mean" music video: https://youtu.be/y9gHXJCV5Dc

Em collaborated on the entire "DEAR LIFE" project - a meditation on coming of age - with music producer Chris Young. Em's previous EP, "PATHWAY TO AETHERIA," was also produced by Chris Young, only at that time she was pursuing a musical direction she describes as "indie-world." Her capriciousness in the past was the twin result of her being so openly influenced by artists of varying genres and the old familiar scenario of her producers steering her toward styles that were already working for other young female singers.

Em absorbed the work of artists ranging from progressive females such as Carly Simon, Stevie Nicks, Alanis Morissette and P!nk to introspective male writers Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Don Henley, Michael Jackson, and Drake.

"Em is and old soul when it comes to her artistry, composing and performing. I have written with Academy Award nominees and platinum composers, yet Em's talent and professionalism is right there among the best. She is a future force to be reckoned with," says Michael B. Sutton, Former Motown Staff Writer | Producer - Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, Cheryl Lynn and more.

"DEAR LIFE is an album-oriented project," Em concludes. "My mission is to help people heal and feel connected - closer to God and their truth."

"DEAR LIFE CD" debuts October 22, 2021 on The Sound of LA. Learn more about The Sound of LA at: https://www.thesoundofla.com/

"Creating emotions comes easy to me - I find most things in life inspiring, inciting, and beautiful," says Ellen Alexander. "I try to add a special note, a personal touch to everything I do, including my music. And I'm trying to create music with a strong message, all wrapped in layers and layers of meaning, all strong and fierce. Vulnerable, but not weak.

"I'm working on multiple projects at the same time, and I guess this gives me a broader perspective. From my lifestyle site to my art's site and music, there's emotion and beauty everywhere."

Change Is Going to Come: New Music, ‘CHANGE’ from Dan Spirk

NEW YORK N.Y. -- Singer-songwriter Dan Spirk (a COVID-19 survivor) is striking back against the pandemic and against hate. "I think we have all heard the saying, 'united we stand, divided we fall.' Well we're falling - into minced pieces of anger and confusion very quickly."

He adds, "We all have a lot of emotions that we are dealing with. It's time to put the emotion back into the music. Enough is enough already, come on let's go."

Is this the beginning of the end for us or is this the beginning of us as a society realizing that we need to grow together? Why do we have such poor choices for our leaders? Why are we fast to be angry at one another when we're arguing with other people's data and reports? Why do we not have our own facts? Why are we so quick to call one another wrong? When are we going to be willing to accept that we all make mistakes? When are we going to stop the hatred?

Dan's new single "Change" is a song about acceptance, getting through muck and bringing water to the fire. Spirk delivers a stellar performance as both a singer and songwriter in this chunky bellowing acoustic "Bare Naked" Rock & Roll song.

Throughout his video Spirk suggests for us as a society to unite and get through these troubled times together. Spirk's song "Change" can be found on both iTunes and also Spotify.
