ORIGIN won an Akademia Award for Best Christian/Gospel song “Sufi Dance” – the album debuts 7/21/17.

ORIGIN is a vibrant New Age/World Fusion album blending Egyptian and western instrumentation; an energetic exploration of ancient instruments and modern sounds.

It’s an expression of human kindness…the intention to bring the beauty of diverse cultures together via fresh combinations of Arabic & western instruments.”

— Elise Lebec, singer, composer, producer, ORIGIN

BURBANK, CA, UNITED STATES, July 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bay Area Film Company is pleased to announce the release of Elise Lebec's new album, ORIGIN, as well as an Akademia Award win (Best Christian/Gospel Song) for the single "Sufi Dance" and a nomination in the Hollywood Music and Media Awards. Lebec, an inspirational artist, singer and composer recalls the moment when the new age/world album was born, sharing “I looked into the eyes of the Goddess Sekhmet and felt my entire soul shift. There I was in Egypt, the Fertile Crescent of the Cradle of Civilization, the Origin of the Awakening of Humanity.”

Lebec's first trip to Egypt was profound, introducing her to new sounds and fresh insights about the people, their culture, and our mutual misunderstandings. ORIGIN, the album, is a direct result of her ensuing visits to Egypt. It is a vibrant New Age/World Fusion album blending Egyptian and western instrumentation and vocals featuring Lebec with special guest performances by Charlie Bisharat, Sheikh Mahmoud El Tohamy and 36 other magnificent musicians; it is an energetic, spiritual exploration of combining ancient instruments and modern sounds to convey Lebec's unique vision of the challenges facing today's world, available at www.EliseLebec.com. Bay Area Films releases the album worldwide today.

Under the same blazing Saqqaran sun that drenched the warrior deity of antiquity 5000 years ago, this musical citizen of the world had experienced the start of what has become a spiritual illumination…an epiphany which compelled her to embark on an intuitive, cross-cultural musical journey of discovery, deep creative expression, and a calling to use it as a vehicle for bringing disparate cultures together.

The outcome, ORIGIN, is an intense, feminine and uniquely beautiful album that Lebec will enter for a Best New Age Album GRAMMY Award this Fall. Upon hearing a preview, writer Karl Stober commented, "Lebec is the Siren of the Desert Sun in 2017. An incredible quest to the past in sound and arrangements."

ORIGIN is an amalgam of exotic Upper Egyptian traditional instruments, distinctive vocals, and contemporary production techniques, building a transcendent bridge between contrasting worlds. “It’s an expression of human kindness,” says Lebec of the release, “…the intention to bring the beauty of diverse cultures together via fresh combinations of Arabic & western instruments. We have built a harmonious narrative merging the millennia of Egyptian music with elements and forms of modern popular music to help exemplify that we are all related beings of planet Earth; one extended family turning in our respective orbits around the Sun.”

This “One World Turning” concept is woven into the fabric of the entire project and will be reflected in and represented by all the media releases, from the recorded music to promotional videos, interviews, live performances, and ORIGIN merchandise, which can be found at https://elise-lebec.myshopify.com/.

Music critic Jonathan Widran commented, “Elise shares her profound personal feeling of awakening and experiences of Egypt in music, and becomes a musical bridge builder of two prominent world cultures. Using exotic Upper Egyptian instrumentation, her distinctive vocals, and contemporary production techniques as a transcendent connection between East and West, she creates a powerful, compelling collection.”

ORIGIN was composed and executive produced by Lebec, who began recording in Cairo when she returned several times after her initial visit last August. Ancient instruments, expertly played by local traditional musicians under her direction include lute, dulcimer, oud, ancient flutes, Upper Egyptian tablas, and an assortment of handmade drums and percussion. Several Egyptian singers, including the very famous Sheikh Mamoud El Tahomy, and Arabic rappers were tapped to round out the project’s vivid authenticity. The resultant sessions were then sent back to Los Angeles to four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Producer/Engineer Dave Way. He in turn brought in one of Prince’s programmers, Eric Anest, who applied Western song forms to the myriad tracks from Cairo resulting in musical “beds” onto which a variety of Western instruments were overdubbed. These include over 35 passionate musicians playing violin (such as Shadowfax’s GRAMMY® Award-winning violinist Charlie Bisharat), electric violins, cellos, alto sax, pedal steel guitar, Hammond organ, background vocals and, of course, Elise Lebec’s own lead vocals.

“As a composer, hearing music I have never heard before is like trying a new dish that tastes amazing, as if a whole new world is opening," Lebec shares. "Just when I think there’s nothing else to learn or explore, I realize that I haven’t even scratched the surface of Life Experience. To me, Music is an all-encompassing form of intimate expression. And what better force is there to bring divergent peoples together? That is the essence of this ORIGIN project! I want to create a dialogue about peace and understanding.”

ORIGIN is available in both physical and digital form at all quality music retailers and online music sites. To request Radio Airplay copies, contact Ed & Stacey Bonk at LAZZ Promotions, (905) 470-1230, or

Renegade Raw Milk Farmer Returns with his ‘Symphony in the Barn’


Rehearsing in the Orchard


Symphony in the Barns Event Takes Place on Glencolton Farms

Celebrity chefs and musicians partner to bring guests a local food feast and a symphony under the stars August 5 and 6th

…celebrate the food, the people, and the music that make up this community. We are celebrating life on the farm and the life it sustains through the food produced here.”

— Michael Schmidt

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, July 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday August 5th and Sunday 6th, 2017, classical musical group, Music in the Barns, will partner with Glencolton Farms for a weekend-long celebration of music and food and agriculture. The festivities will take place on the farm: 393889 Concession 2, Durham ON. Classical music radio personality Alexa Petrenko will emcee the event.

The two-day festival will feature food from dozens of Ontario’s local organic farmers prepared by Toronto’s top chefs. Guests will hear several concerts—played by a team of international musicians–during the weekend, most notably an after dark concert under the stars Saturday beginning at 7:00pm and a late night roaming concert beginning at 10:00. Sunday will feature a local food feast prepared by several celebrity chefs, including Toronto chef Jamie Kennedy, and Carey McLellan amongst many others. There will be additional concerts and music throughout the afternoon and evening Sunday.

From 1995 until 2012, Michael Schmidt hosted Symphony in the Barn as a concert on the farm with and for international music lovers. Organizers hope to reinvent this much-loved, annual event by introducing local food and celebrity chefs.

Past participant and world-class clarinetist, Kathy Pirtle remarks on her experience playing for the symphony, “for me, this was one of the most powerful music experiences I’ve had in my life. Playing the concerto with cows singing in the background sent goosebumps down my spine as I was playing it. It was a significant moment in my life as an artist. The farm represents the energy and synergy of life.”

Glencolton Farms, host for the weekend, is a biodynamic farm in Durham, Ontario famous for their legal battles to promote food freedom in Canada. Farmer Michael Schmidt has been the center of the controversy over raw milk since 1994, often appearing in court to make his case for food freedom.

“Music is an important part of my life and the community surrounding the farm,” Schmidt says. “It is part of what draws people here. We host this to bring people together and celebrate the food, the people, and the music that make up this community. We are celebrating life on the farm and the life it sustains through the food produced here.”

Tickets are available (until sold out) through the organizers’ ticket sales page. Proceeds from the event will support the Raw Milk Legal Defense Fund.

The Toronto based “Music in the Barns,” founded in 2008, takes classical concerts out of the traditional hall with their signature, site-specific “installation concerts.”

Glencolton Farms is a biodynamic farm in Durham, Ontario offering internships to aspiring farmers and selling meats and baked good to their community.

Grand Ole Opry Member Martina McBride Honored With Donation Of 53,000 Diapers

Prior to her performance at the Grand Ole Opry last night, Martina McBride was recognized for her commitment to helping families and children with a donation of 53,000 diapers from the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN), and its founding sponsor Huggies®.

Huggies® and National Diaper Bank Network Recognize Martina’s Commitment to Improving the Lives of Children and Families

I know the importance of clean diapers in keeping a baby happy and healthy. The fact that many mothers can’t afford the diapers they need for their baby is troubling. All babies deserve clean diapers.”

— Martina McBride

NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, UNITED STATES, July 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — What is acclaimed country singer and songwriter Martina McBride going to do with 53,000 diapers donated in her honor last night at the Grand Ole Opry House? She’ll make sure the diapers—a basic need of every infant and toddler—are delivered to the Nashville Diaper Connection. The community-based nonprofit helps local families who struggle to afford enough diapers to keep their infants and toddlers clean, dry and healthy.

Through Team Music is Love, McBride regularly engages with her fans to help improve the lives of children and families in hometowns throughout the U.S.

In honoring McBride, Huggies donated a day’s worth of diapers for each of the 4,400 audience seats at the Opry, which equals 26,500 diapers for 4,400 babies. As she performed twice, the donation was doubled to 53,000 diapers.

McBride’s Team Music Is Love will help coordinate the delivery of the diapers in the coming weeks to the Nashville Diaper Connection, a member of National Diaper Bank Network.

“While my three daughters are grown, I know the importance of clean diapers in keeping a baby happy and healthy,” said McBride. “The fact that many mothers can’t afford the diapers they need for their baby is troubling. I’m honored that Team Music Is Love is working with the National Diaper Bank Network to help address diaper need. All babies deserve clean diapers.”

Since its founding in June 2013, the Nashville Diaper Connection has distributed more than 130,000 diapers. The 501(c)3 organization accepts donations of diapers and dollars to help struggling families in Nashville. More information is available at www.nashvillediaperconnection.org.

McBride resides in Nashville with her husband, John, and their three daughters. Keep up to date on her activities on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Australian Actor Artin John to star in upcoming Death Note Netflix blockbuster.

photo by Shimon

One of Australia's hottest new acting exports Artin John is set to star in Death Note, and prepares for two major upcoming lead roles.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — With just over a month left till Netflix releases it's highly anticipated Death Note US Adaptation to millions of viewers around the world; it's been confirmed that one of Australia's youngest most respected character actors Artin John, will be seen in the critical role of Anthony Skomal. Details of the role have been kept under wraps till now because of secrecy, John stating "while we can't reveal too much, the role certainly holds gravitas and is key to the Death Note Story". An inside source has confirmed that the studio didn't have the easiest time casting this role, "the studio required an extremely unique actor with a chameleon-like ability, and a heavy set of acting chops, to pull off the part successfully; which is why they ended up offering the part to John". There has been much speculation regarding the Manga adaptation, with John adding "I know there is a lot of hype, but I really think the fans will love what we have; and you can't go wrong with Willem Dafoe as Ryuk". Netflix has over 60 million subscribers from over 40 counties, so the release of Death Note, will be on of the largest cinematic releases of all time; John's involvement playing a key part in this.

John joins the Death Note action, starring alongside Hollywood A-List talent, Nat Wolff (The Fault in our stars), Keith Stanfield (Get Out), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Finding Nemo, Platoon); the film is directed by Adam Wingard (Godzilla vs Kong, Blair Witch), and is set to be released on August 25th. John states "this was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had on set, my character Skomal was a real thrill, and our second unit team led by Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun) was incredible. Jason really let us play".

One of Australia's highest regarded newspapers The Sunday Morning Herald, once called the 22 year old Bondi Sydney boy, "one of Australias most in demand, underrated actors", now aged 24, John has become one of Down Under's top thespian exports. Those in the industry who have worked with John have likened him to a young Pacino, De Niro, and Hoffman, with all the makings of a great character actor. John has accomplished notable success rather early in his career, having landed prominent roles on shows such as The X Files; where his critically acclaimed masterful portrayal of the lead role Shiraz, carried the episode Babylon, in front of a worldwide audience of tens of millions, a grand achievement in itself. The X Files Creator Chris Carter, and co-producer Gabe Rotter, were very pleased with John's performance, and the expert manner in which he handled such a delicate subject-matter; his work responsible for Babylon's critical and commercial success. John has also starred in shows such as iZombie, where he played Patrick Edward. iZombie director Michael Fields (Law & Order SVU) calling John "a very natural and subtle actor", encouraging members of CW's hit zombie dramedy crew to "keep their eye on this rising star". Fans will also recognize John from his comical genius on CW's Emily Owens M.D. as Intern Dr. Brian Matson, opposite Mamie Gummer. John was the youngest actor on the show to play a doctor at age 19; a Hollywood record, and mega distinguished achievement.

John is currently prepping for his lead roles on upcoming major motion pictures "Eleven Days of Hell", and "Druuna: Morbus Gravis", both directed by Hollywood VFX veteran, Marco Checa Garcia (Emmy win Game of Thrones, Oscar Nomination Iron Man 3, District 9, Captain America, Life of Pi), who is flying the flag for highly esteemed production company 2br02b productions. 2br02b productions is best known for the multi-award winning movie "to be or or naught to be", based on the famous short story by the great Kurt Vonnegut; which has been given the nod for an Oscar Nomination for Best Live Action Short at the 2018 Academy Awards, after having screened at two Academy Award Qualifying Festivals. To be or naught to be stars William B. Davis (The X Files Smoking Man, Artin John, Melissa Roxburgh (Star Trek Beyond, Valor) and Mackenzie Grey (Legion FX, Man of Steal). To be or Naught To Be was sound designed by BAFTA winning sound designer Martin Cantwell (Casino Royale, Kingsman Secret Service, Harry Potter). 2BR02B has turned into one of Hollywoods newest most esteemed companies.

Eleven Days,will be an epic bio-pic, based on the best selling autobiography by Yvonne Bornstein. It tells the story of the historic rescue of a husband and wife by the KGB and The FBI, marking the first time that the Russians and Americans were forced to partner up since the second world war. Bornstein is set to produce the project, which will ensure the success of the book be transferred to the movie. Checa Garcia explains "Eleven Days Of Hell is going to be one of the top films of the decade".

Druuna: Morbus Gravis, is set to be a great dystopian sci-fi cinematic experience, based on the famous Italian comics by mastermind author and artist Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri. Just like his "Eleven Days" project, Checa Garcia will be consulting with the original author throughout production, to ensure the success of the comics be conveyable to his movie. Director Checa Garcia calls the story "dark, intense, amazing", and goes on to praise John "there is a reason why I choose to work with this amazing actor time and time again; his talent and skill are a powerful force to be reckoned with". The synopsis is of a young girl who struggles to survive in a post-apocalyptic city where a terrible disease is threatening to annihilate all human beings. John is set to star in both of these features alongside Hollywood A-List talent.

John is represented by Luber Roklin Entertainment (Los Angeles) and McMahon Management (Melbourne Australia).

Musgrove Music Distribution Presents Gospel/Christian Recording Artist Nell McGhee And Her Debut Album "He's Marvelous"

Nell McGhee is the newest member of the Musgrove Music Distribution family. Her debut album “He’s Marvelous” is available on iTunes and most digital sites.

Musgrove Music Distribution is the solution for the independent Gospel Music Artist and/or up-and-coming record label seeking a platform to be heard in the Gospel Music Industry.

Nell McGhee is a sixteen-year cancer survivor and an advocate for sarcoidosis awareness. She encourages all to maintain annual health screenings and live a healthy and God-centered lifestyle.

Nell McGhee challenges listeners to show more love, and her breakout lead single "My Hero" is a song of triumph that promises to encourage and inspire!

MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, July 18, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nell McGhee is the newest member of the Musgrove Music Distribution family, and her debut album “He’s Marvelous” is a welcome addition to the Musgrove artist lineup. Click I WANT MY COPY NOW! to be re-routed to the page where you can purchase your copy today.

“He’s Marvelous” is Nell’s challenge to the world to reassess their current relationship with God and to love more. The first track on the CD, “Show Love God’s Way” relays this very sentiment. The title track “He’s Marvelous” recants the immensity God in all His greatness. The song “My Hero” shows great promise to be a classic as Nell speaks of Jesus, who has been more of a hero to her than any of the character renderings presented by Hollywood and/or comic book artists and writers.

“This album is nothing short of amazing,” says Daniel Musgrove of Musgrove Music Distribution. “Nell McGhee has the uncanny ability to draw in listeners from all conventional target audiences. Her music addresses a Christian worldview that we don’t see enough of in Gospel music. Many people will be blessed by this CD.” Musgrove feels that there’s an overabundance of great gospel/Christian music being created that would never achieve maximum public impact without sufficient support. MMD provides music publishing services; multi-media development; marketing campaigns; promotions; booking and management; video production; and other services that prove invaluable to individual artists and/or up-and-coming record labels.

Nell McGhee is a native of Miami, and she grew up in a God-fearing home. Nell’s father was a member of a Gospel quartet group, and her mother was a Vocal Jazz enthusiast who could be heard singing Jazz standards she listened to on her record player at home. Nell began singing at age 13, which was also around the time that she gave her life to Christ. As many do, she strayed away from the faith as she grew older, but it wasn’t long before she returned to her faith-based roots during her young adult life. Nell will tell you in a heartbeat that she’s sold out to Jesus and there’s no such thing as turning back.

Nell’s musical influences span the gamut of Gospel music and Jazz, which can be attributed to her particular vocal style. She lists in her favorites such artists as The Williams Brothers, Mississippi Mass Choir, Helen Baylor, Smokie Norful, Chicago Mass Choir, Marvin Sapp, Tonéx, and Karen Clark Sheard to name a few. But she also lists Al Jarreau, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, and Anita Baker as musical influences. She appreciates quality music, and it is her hope that people will receive her unique blend of past and present that she brings to the table.

When asked what motivated her to begin a singing career, Nell responded with her personal testimony. In 2000, she was diagnosed with cancer and had to have surgery to have it removed from her body, as well as endure reconstructive breast surgery. She is extremely grateful to God that it was detected early enough to be treated. She has been cancer free for over sixteen years. It was after her bout with cancer that she says the songs inside her began to flow.

“It made me re-evaluate my life and the way I viewed the world around me,” says Nell. “God says ‘If there is no love, you don’t know me.’ I looked at myself and realized that I needed to show more love to others. I thought of so many people in church that say they love you, but their actions don’t line up with their words. I think that God wants more unity in the body of Christ, and I believe the church in general should make itself more available to people for assistance, outreach, and community involvement. I wanted to reach as many as I could, so I started to write songs from the messages I heard in my heart.”

And her messages are very clear in the recording. Nell wrote all the songs on the album. And with the distinctive music production by Daniel Musgrove himself, the recording gives a strong “one-two punch” offering a message of clarity under-girded by musical quality.

Nell has done studio work with local artists in the Miami area, and has shared the stage with national recording artists such as Michael English and Gloria Larson. She will appear on Impact TV’s “Bobby Jones Gospel Presents” on August 20th, which boasts a viewing audience of over 20 million. It is Nell’s hope that her music will be embraced the world over, and that people respond to her message.

Nell McGhee leads a very active life of service beyond music. She is actively involved in prison ministry, and she also works with the Angel Tree Ministry, which provides Christmas presents to children whose parents are incarcerated. She is involved with People Helping People, which allows her to encourage and minister to the homeless with themes of hope and restoration.

Nell is also an advocate for sarcoidosis awareness. Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affect the lungs, lymph glands, and other organs of the body. Nell intends to donate part of the proceeds from the recording to sarcoidosis research, and she has created a Facebook page designed to create greater public awareness and understanding of this disease (enter this IP address in your search engine to learn more: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Sarcoidosis-Awareness-107428702623510/about/?ref=page_internal).

When asked what she would like to say to those who encounter her for the first time, Nell said: “Don’t die and not do what God has given you to do. Remember that when God forgives you, you are truly forgiven— He forgave you, so you must work to forgive yourself. Don’t beat yourself up by doubting your relationship with Him. God loves you with no conditions.”

Antigua and Barbuda welcomes “The Voice” winner Chris Blue and wife for honeymoon

Twin-island nation will play host for celebrity newlyweds

We are honored that Chris Blue and his new wife Stephanie chose Antigua and Barbuda as their destination of choice for their honeymoon.”

— Asot A. Michael, Minister of Tourism, Antigua & Barbuda

NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 17, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Antigua and Barbuda welcomed The Voice 2017 Winner Chris Blue and his new wife Stephanie to the popular destination in the Caribbean for their honeymoon with a VIP reception. The newlyweds landed in the Caribbean’s most romantic destination to the sounds of local musicians where they were personally greeted by the Minister of Tourism, Economic Development, Investment and Energy, the Honorable Asot A. Michael. As part of the VIP Welcome and reception, the newly-married couple, who arrived from London where their wedding took place, also received a special wedding blessing from the CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C.

The couple will be spending the next week in Antigua and Barbuda, enjoying their time as a new couple at the award-winning Hermitage Bay Resort, before Chris returns to the US to continue his concert and recording schedule.

Chico’s Autograph

A new pitbull arrived recently – from Narsica, a planet in our galaxy. He's here to save Earth from evil, and he loves you more than you can ever know

There’s a New Pitbull in Town – and He’s Not from Here

There’s a new Pitbull in town. And he’s also a Superstar. You can find him, complete with music, photos and background stories, at


which documents the life and adventures of this galactic Superstar. Oh – one thing: he’s not from here. And unlike the “other” Pitbull, he’s clearly not from Miami, Florida.

The Pitbull’s history, intragalactic abilities and fascinating perspectives – along with his fully orchestrated Theme Song, can be found on the blog. It includes historical and personal background on this Pitbull – his name is “Chico” – and some details of his home-planet and its location, his mission on earth, and the vast set of skills and abilities he brings to fighting evil on earth and throughout the Universe.

You can visit Chico's Facebook Page and get a FREE autographed photo, and take the Chico Quiz.


Chico (a Wogg, from the planet Narsica) is a real-live dog/person, and lives in Coral Gables and Hollywood, Florida. He arrived at his friend’s house in the Gables about two years ago, and has been working on a children’s book, a novel, and a musical. His musical theme song, created for him by another ancient Pitbull friend (Anubis) for his 100th birthday, is on the blog section entitled “Primer: Chico, the Intragalactic Pitbull.”


There you’ll find Chico’s Ballad, composed for and bestowed on him by Anubis. Despite a youthful appearance, this Pitbull is nearly as old as the Universe itself. He does have more hair than the earthbound Pitbull.

For a complete run-down on Chico’s basic history, and to stay updated as more stories are posted and recorded, visit chicothemagicdog.com – and stay tuned to the new Pitbull in town!

One of the most outrageous, offensive and laugh-out-loud comedies ever made.”

— The Film Corner

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 14, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yes you heard that right! You can find out when the VOD is released on July 14th across Canada

IndustryWorks Studios is releasing the most talked-about (or will be), controversial (definitely), laugh-out-loud (because you can’t help it) movie to come out of Canada since ‘Fubar’.

The mockumentary-style comedy “Shooting the Musical” made its first appearance to audiences at the Whistler Film festival, with rave reviews and a large following of fans that responded to the daring thematic and raw humor so rare in independent films coming out of North America, in this case, for obvious reasons.

Director Joel Ashton McCarthy, best known for his award-winning documentary Taking My Parents To Burning Man made “Shooting The Musical” with the aid of over 100 of his film school students and friends. A labor of love and a risky subject matter that may just put this indie film director on the road to success.

The premise is simple, recent film school grads resurrect a script written by their talented, fallen friend Max (Lee Shorten) as an homage to him and his adoring fans. But when the un-talented, crude, rude and completely self-absorbed Adam (Bruce Novakowski) decides to leverage the suicide of his friend for his own opportunity he re-writes the script to become a musical about a high school shooting.

The result is a comedic critic of some of societies values and its result on youth mentality. It will make you laugh out loud but it will also make you think.

Audiences loved it, proven by festival win after festival win and the recent accolade from the Toronto Film Review chosen on the awesome list of “100 best Canadian Films” by Paul Williams. VOD release and download-to-own this bad boy for life.

IndustryWorks will also be releasing the movie across Canada on VOD (iTunes and Vimeo) on July 14th, 2017 (pre-buy it on July 1st, 2017).

“It is not only crude, shocking and offensive, but it is utterly and completely hilarious.” – vancitybuzz
