Montana Country Artist Doug Adkins Releases New 15 Song CD Titled "A Cowboys' Life"

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, August 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Doug Adkins' 10th CD titled “A Cowboys' Life,” is a fresh exhilarating welcome country musical experience for everyone who's ever wondered where did real country music go? Conveniently listen to all the songs in a shortened condensed YouTube video here: "A Cowboys' Life" from Doug Adkins

This 15 song CD, with its varying styles and energy give a dynamic listening country music experience! From Traditional and Americana Country to Roots Rock to Folk to Cowboy Music to Blues Country to Honky Tonk, it's all here and presented seamlessly as 15 songs masterfully weave in and out to create an exceptionally enjoyably good time. Recorded with some of the top Nashville studio musicians, Doug Adkins once again shows why he's gained so much worldwide respect as a Songwriter and Recording Artist. Unapologetic in his approach, Adkins takes the listener from the opening traditional country number “Stand for Something” to “Get A Little Drunker With Me Baby,” which is a humorous innocent take on a middle age couple meeting in a country club, dancing and noticing that they both don't have diamond rings on.

Next on the track list is “It Would Break Her Heart,” where Adkins humbly and honestly questions why thoughts of a past relationship still “linger in his mind, when there's nothing back there with her he could ever possibly yearn.”

The song “Billy Wants To Dance,” changes the mood immediately with it's upbeat driving fun story line of the view from being a “Front Man – Singer” on stage at a country bar and witnessing the humorous things you see from that perspective. From there it's back to the classic country sounds Adkins has become known for with the titles “Too Much Worry,” and “Hold On.” On these numbers, Brent Mason (guitars) and Scotty Sanders (Steel guitar) have put their unforgettable legendary signature sounds. The hard driving number 7 song “Country Certified,” is a nod to all the “Country Boys,” across the world, and shows an especially touching side in the 2nd verse with a tribute to Adkins' grandfather who used to break wild horses for a living before he passed on from Tuberculosis when the father of Doug Adkins was just 12 years old.

Number 8, a true cowboy ballad and the CDs' title track “A Cowboys' Life,” is just what you might expect to hear at any real country campfire or cattle drive riding the range across Montana, Wyoming, Texas, or Oklahoma. Next it's the banjo, steel guitar and country picking on the track “Jesse James,” that brings the energy right back into focus, which Adkins explains is actually an incognito relationship, self reflection song disguised with imagery of gun fights, riding your horse out on the prairie and knowing that tomorrow somewhere there “Must Be Something To Believe In.”

At this point the listener is wondering, where can we go from here, to which Adkins does not disappoint! As if to do a 360, “Tail Lights In The Mirror,” and “One Kiss,” take us back into the Americana Country – Roots Rock world with solid song writing and extremely well crafted themes. Then out of nowhere and certainly unexpected, we see a side of Doug Adkins most probably didn't know existed with his offering to his Church upbringings as he delivers likely the sleeper of the entire album, a song titled “Amen,” in which showing vulnerability and acceptance of ones own weakness in the human spirit become the strength of this song. Number 13, “Talk Of The Town,” is a sweet moving country number where the singer declares his appreciation for the type of lady that doesn't have to always “stand out in a crowd,” but is none the less the love of his life! Song number 14 “Please Stay,” may be one of the more interesting and revealing tracks where Adkins shows his vocal versatility and range when he decries “I don't wanna be another one of those guys, I don't wanna hear you say goodbye, this is as far as I thought I'd ever be, Please Stay With Me.”

The final listing, number 15 is a tribute to legendary Texas songwriters Ed and Patsy Bruce who both passed in 2021. The song, which was previously released by Adkins where he sang the lyrics Willie Nelson recorded were swapped out, replaced with the original lyrics Ed and Patsy Bruce wrote. The result is an upbeat, remixed and remastered version of the timeless classic “Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.” Adkins does the song justice, and anyone who loves the classic version from Willie Nelson, will surely also enjoy the approach taken here.

We have to come together and build.”

— King Cxshmere

CHARLOTTE, NC, US, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — King Cxshmere (Cxshmere or Cxsh) born Anthony Grant, is a Charlotte, NC resident Media Personality/Journalist/Publicist/Love Guru/Artist that has been impactful in changing the way that others see and appreciate artists and music for over 10 years.

As a well known singer/songwriter in his city, best known for his powerful National Anthem performances at high profile stages, such as The Lupus Walk, CIAA and Walmart's Year Beginning Meeting and Grand Openings; King Cxshmere had connected with many individuals in the music industry that have helped shape his career in serving the independent market. King Cxshmere has helped and worked with many independent artists in his area with building their brands from the ground up. He is dedicated to music and the artists that truly find passion in its creation.

For a long time, Charlotte, NC has been known for having some of the most talented and skilled individuals to ever come into the city. However, the city also suffers from a well known crab-in-the-bucket mentality and lack of support when it comes to its own music scene. Although many DJ's and promoters reside in the city, it has not seemed to birth more successful career artists like DaBaby. But even before DaBaby arised, King Cxshmere set out to balance that deficit with his two online platforms that uplift and spotlight artists.

CxshMedia.com was established in 2019 as his "personal opinion" site where he drafts blog write ups on artists that he listens to from his Playlists: Cxsh List: Sativa & Indica on Apple Music and Spotify. BANMagazine.com (BANMAG) was established in 2012, as the original and more general approach, featuring interviews, stage performances and more, conducted and recorded by Cxsh. With the platforms gaining more and more traction, King Cxshmere has also built a solid network of other individuals with like-minded brands that support the independent artists and music scene. "We have to come together and build" is a statement recited by King Cxshmere and the many individuals in his network and abroad; assuring we all want the same thing and should work together to achieve it. Cxsh has prided himself in constantly connecting the dots with artists and personnel in the industry to get them to the next level.

King Cxshmere knows his city is full of talent and stars that should be displayed and put out for the world to see. His mission is to create and support an atmosphere of music driven events ran by music lovers. To support his mission, he started his own company, The Cxsh House, LLC to bring PR/Artist development services to artists and other entrepreneurs looking to build their brand. Also in this pursuit, Cxshmere practices Self-Love Coaching to help sharpen the minds of individuals suffering from anxiety and depression so that they can become wielders of their own power.

King Cxshmere has set the standard in togetherness and brand collaboration in his city and encourages others to join him in building a nation of powerful individuals that can sufficiently serve each other.

VOCALIST KARI KIRKLAND’S SINGLE, “BREAK YOUR HEART” ENTERS BILLBOARD ADULT CONTEMPORARY CHART AT #30

Break Your Heart Cover

Song's Video Is an Endearing Story Focusing on Animal Rescue

artfully walking the line where jazz and adult contemporary meet, Kari Kirkland proves that she’s finally right where she belongs…”

— Jazz Times

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Singer Kari Kirkland’s debut album, Wild Is the Wind, was released in February of 2021 and immediately earned the former Ironman Triathlete competitor and flying trapeze and aerial bungee artist considerable critical acclaim. Jazz Times selected the album as an Editor’s Pick, concluding “…artfully walking the line where jazz and adult contemporary meet, Kari Kirkland proves that she’s finally right where she belongs.” JW Vibe noted the “pin drop purity and transcendent exquisiteness of (her) soulful yet ethereal vocals.”

“Break Your Heart" was released on June 21. This week, the track entered the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart at #30.

“I'm beyond thrilled to be on the A/C chart, “Kari exclaimed. “It's a true honor to be among such accomplished and respected artists, and I'm so grateful to the musicians and engineers who helped me create such an impactful debut album.”

Following closely upon the single’s release, a video for “Break Your Heart” debuted on June 25. Unlike the video for Taio Cruz’s original, which featured scenes from a male/female relationship, Kari’s video offers up a different perspective on having one’s heart broken.

‘When conceptualizing the video, I wanted to explore a different kind of "heartbreaker" scenario (rather than dating or being a ‘player’). I started expanding on the idea that we can fall in love so quickly and completely with an animal, even if (and sometimes because!) we're not expecting it,” explains the vocalist. “There had to be an element of a broken heart in the video, and my husband suggested the idea of finding a lost dog and eventually having to say goodbye. I'm a volunteer at The Palm Springs Animal Shelter, and I thought it would be an intriguing way to highlight animal welfare in addition to telling a really sweet story.”

The video was shot and directed by Bruce Feagle of The Creative Monster in Palm Springs. The script was formally written by Noelle Geiger.
“The dog in the video is named Sienna, and she is a rescued Pitbull mix,” continues Kari. “The cat in the video is our very own blind, toothless wonder, Sofie! The animal trainer / wrangler was Fernando Gustavson of Canine Ace and the facility used in the video is the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, who graciously allowed us to shoot scenes in their hospital wing and front entrance. “

It is rare that a debut album so effortlessly makes the crossover from jazz to adult contemporary, but even early reviewers noted the eventuality of exactly that happening for Kari. Now that “Break Your Heart” has, indeed, broken through to reach an even greater audience, Kari is primed to emerge as one of the success stories of 2021.

“Break Your Heart” is available on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, and Apple Music.

De'Semaj and Friends Perform at the Historic Venue, The Fillmore/ The Underground

De’Semaj performing Live

De’Semaj with friends Twin Nation and her dancers.

CHARLOTTE, NC, USA, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — De'Semaj was accompanied by friends Twin Nation and more to assist her performance at the Fillmore/The Underground. The location is known for housing some of the greatest acts to roam through Charlotte, N.C. and it always shows a sign that a star is present once on that stage.

De'Semaj is an independent artist residing in Charlotte, NC, a city known for a bubbling music scene with potential, but a crab-in-the-bucket mentality when it comes to the approach of the pursuit and collaboration. With a heavily saturated scene, artists must separate themselves from a noisy crowd and into a more diverse scene to stand apart. Hitting stages like The Fillmore/The Underground adds major notch under your professional belt and it's no wonder that the likes of De'Semaj has graced the stage for her gallery of performances. Just two weeks ago, De'semaj performed and opened up for the legendary Chrisette Michelle in Raleigh, N.C. and showing her progress in the game is only growing.

Stay tuned for the "Phases" Album dropping late this summer on all streaming platforms and check out her new music video "Intoxicated".

To stay up to date on De'Semaj, for booking info and to see where she's performing next, follow her on Instagram @Desemaj.

Chicago Children's Choir saw an opportunity to use the unmatched power of music and fuse it with Homer’s timeless, beloved epic to deliver a message of hope, unity, and empowerment.”

— Josephine Lee, CCC President and Artistic Director

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chicago Children’s Choir (CCC), a nonprofit organization that inspires and unites youth from diverse backgrounds to become global ambassadors through music, is releasing a new studio album, Long Way Home, the Choir’s latest full-length LP and their first full-length theatrical work since the acclaimed Sita Ram. Long Way Home, a reimagination of Homer's epic poem The Odyssey set in modern day Chicago, tells the story of Ody, a South Side poet who unexpectedly ends up on a magical journey home through Chicago's neighborhoods. The 34-track collection of original compositions will be fully available on all major streaming platforms starting August 17. Proceeds support Chicago Children's Choir’s mission to inspire and change lives through music.

Originally written for the stage, the Long Way Home production sold out five nights at Chicago's historic Studebaker Theater in 2018. The new studio recording captures the passion of the timeless tale while dealing with challenges of modern times and seamlessly integrates a range of home-grown musical styles, from blues to house. True to the album’s celebration of Chicago’s cultural scene, Long Way Home features custom artwork by Chicago-native Hebru Brantley.

“There’s never been anything like this,” Josephine Lee, CCC President and Artistic Director said. “This love note to the city that has nurtured our organization for 65 years is a testament to the global impact of Chicago’s peerless music scene—and the impact we’ve been able to have through it. Chicago’s youth and its musical culture are its greatest treasures. With this production, the Choir saw an opportunity to use the unmatched power of music and fuse it with Homer’s timeless, beloved epic to deliver a message of hope, unity, and empowerment.”

As with the theatrical performance, CCC collaborated with Chicago's award-winning hip hop musical pioneers Q Brothers Collective who masterfully brought the stage performance to the studio. Many of the original cast were reunited to record Long Way Home, and nearly 100 youth from communities across Chicago performed on the album.

“We’ve been using the hip hop musical form to tell captivating stories for over two decades,” said JQ of the Q Brothers Collective. “But Long Way Home is a one-of-a-kind fusion of Chicago’s wide-ranging musical styles. And what better way to honor a globally cherished story than by paying homage to the city we grew up in, while celebrating its own pioneers of musical genres whose influence can be heard in every corner of the world?"

In the spirit of the Choir’s mission to unite the world through music, the release of this exciting new cast recording will make the magic of Long Way Home available to listeners around the world while they work with the Q Brothers to re-stage the theatrical production in the 2022-2023 season.

Gods House International Centre Music, Bristol, UK

GHIC Music - Things Are Coming Together

New Release from GHIC Music

Story behind the music

I was also seven months pregnant with my son – which made the song even more applicable to me personally”

— Natalie Ipinyomi

BRISTOL, AVON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In 2019 I heard the words clearly "Its coming together, bone by bone." Pastor Osien Sibanda, senior Pastor of my church, God's House International Centre (GHIC), had proclaimed. Following this, he (instagram: @osiensibanda) asked the worship team of the church (GHIC Music), to go and write a song and those lyrics seemed to stay with me for a while.

I prayed and asked God to help and a year later, when the leader of the GHIC Music team Temitope Ezobi (instagram: @temitopeezobi), asked us to submit songs for the GHIC Music project, the lyrics and music finally came. I honestly thought that the song would be very wordy and complex, but God had other plans! Goziam Okogwu (instagram: @goz_i_am), our producer also reassured me during our group writing session that the simpler the song, the better. The process in which we put the music, the harmonies and lyrics together was a good one, as we had all hands on deck making it a collective effort. I had a lot of help from Goziam and the team with regards to bringing to life the vision I had musically.

During the recording process, we decided to add another GHIC Music lead vocalist in the person of Sandile Nyandoro (instagram: @sandile_nya) and she did such an amazing job! She added more flavor and charisma to the song. It is worth noting that during the recording process, I was seven months pregnant with my son. This has made the song really special and more applicable to me personally – I knew that it was a timely declaration for all the things I was going through in my life at that point in time.

I really love the simplicity of the song and this is what makes the message more powerful. Its release is also truly relevant to the times we are in with the situation of the world attempting to get back to normalcy with COVID 19 after many have lost time, jobs and even lives. Through it all, this song gives the message of hope for the future and a word of encouragement for everyone to know that "Things are coming together".
