J$Money Releases His Newest Hip-Hop Single, “Brick City”

Brick City Available Now on All Streaming Platforms

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Atlanta-based hip-hop artist, J$Money releases the latest single “Brick City”.

“Brick City” was inspired by J$Money to express the shortcomings of those who experienced living, and surviving on the streets.

Combining hip-hop and creative storytelling, J$Money shares powerful messaging throughout the track of what it was like for him going through personal obstacles, how he’s made it out of these situations and shows gratitude for life lessons that were taught from it.

Speaking on some of his life obstacles, J$Money says, “I grew up around the projects. Projects were everywhere, either I lived in them or lived beside them. The life I experienced created the backdrop for the song.”

J$Money wants listeners to feel the adrenaline behind the song “Brick City” and encourages those that grew up in similar situations to stay true to their higher purpose in life and continue to be self-motivated throughout life’s obstacles.

“Brick City” is available now on Spotify and all other major platforms. Visit J$Money’s website for updates on new projects.

About J$Money

J$Money’s Inspiration for music grew overtime whilst growing up in Alabama around his grandfather. At the age of 8, he started tapping into his musical abilities by learning to play the harmonica and picked up his first guitar and learning techniques. After his grandfather passed, J$Money put music on the back burner and went on a journey of finding his truest self. Over time he realized that the best way for him to cope throughout this time and express himself was through music. J$Money reflected on his purpose and eventually gained his courage back to continue pursuing his talents and career as a musician.

Greg Scott is the latest artist to champion the conversation around mental health in the music industry

MOTHERWOLF RECORDS///CATALOG #: MW-0013

Greg Scott

After Greg gets his big break on NBC’s show Songland, and writes the theme song for the 2020 Olympics, COVID-19 hits, his dream of a lifetime is canceled.

10% of the royalties from “Protector” will be donated to Backline, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that connects music industry professionals with mental health and wellness resources.”

— Motherwolf

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, March 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Protector”— out Friday, March 5th via Motherwolf. Alongside fellow artists and fans, Greg Scott is paving the way and using his “big breakdown” to drive awareness for artists around the world who need help with anxiety and depression with the new music label, Motherwolf.

The song comes after a challenging year for the music industry, including Greg who had expected to have the best year of his career. After winning Songland in 2020, to have his song chosen as the 2020 Olympics theme song, the global pandemic shuttered the opportunity and sent Greg into a dark place. After experiencing panic attacks for the first time, he reached out to his community for help and gained more support than he could have ever imagined. A friend taught him the power of breathwork, which has changed his life forever, and now, he’s ready to share that with the world. Through this release, Greg hopes to encourage fans to practice emotional resilience during these difficult times.

“Protector is about tapping into your breath to overcome struggle,” says Greg Scott and goes on to explain “ it’s about being okay with asking for help because making authentic and honest connections with your audiences during this pandemic, even if it’s online, is way more powerful than faking it. Let’s reach out, listen, support, and protect each other.”

To bring the experience full circle, 10% of the royalties from “Protector” will be donated to Backline, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that connects music industry professionals with mental health and wellness resources. “It’s so important to support the music industry right now. What a moment to pause and reset the stage for how artists and the larger community coexist and remember that true art heals.” says musical collaborator, Murado. Greg chimes in saying, “It’s important to me to raise awareness and funds for music industry professionals like me who need additional support during these hard times.”

Greg will be hosting a breathwork session on his Instagram page date in partnership with Breathwrk, an app that provides free guided breathing exercises to help alleviate anxiety, fall asleep, get energized, and more. Date to be released soon along with other exciting follow-up events.

HILIFE MUSIC GROUP DIRECT LICENSING Platform Opens up Market to Everyone

The move creates a less complex and more equitable solution for companies and individuals who require music licensing for creative work.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, March 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chief Executive Officer of HILIFE MUSIC GROUP, Adrian Fife, has made HILIFE MUSIC licensing available for general public use through the HILIFE MUSIC subsidiary label, HI5FIVE MUSIC. HILIFE MUSIC GROUP has named its new service “Direct Licensing.”

Founded in 2007, HILIFE MUSIC GROUP has been providing all aspects of music and audio services for artists and companies alike, including music and audio production, mixing, mastering, remixing, audio design, sound effects for TV, film, radio, and games. The company also offers other goods and services, ranging from events and promotions to publishing management and designer clothing.

HILIFE MUSIC GROUP’s most recent move to provide direct licensing comes following feedback from a number of different sources which, up until recently, labelled music licensing, and the process in which to get permission to use a song or an instrumental track in the creative works, difficult and complex.
Until now, this traditional process sometimes involved complicated negotiation between multiple copyright holders – potentially including the label, songwriters, the artists, and the publisher. With each one of these departments characteristically being on a different page, and for the most part having different agendas, negotiations break down if even one party objects. This results in the track not being licensed, regardless of how much time and effort has been put into the negotiation, and furthermore ends up being extremely expensive.

CEO of The HILIFE GROUP mentions, however, that now through HI5FIVE MUSIC’S Direct Licensing, that licensing has never been easier – not only for companies that have traditionally licensed music, but additionally for all individuals that require music licensing for their creative works.

With HILIFE MUSIC Direct Licensing, companies and individuals are able to play the track, choose the licensing option and pay, within minutes, all in one place.

“The music industry is always changing, and it is very important that companies adapt and change with the times,” says the CEO of the company. “Not only do businesses and corporations require licensing for their artists or products, but now even the regular everyday person that produces YouTube videos. This is a beneficial solution for everyone.”

According to the CEO, creative projects typically work on a tight budget and, therefore, every expense has to be looked at. The new HILIFE MUSIC process and Direct licensing platform not only makes licensing easy but additionally allows the client to license exclusively or non-exclusively, over a longer or shorter period of time, which in turn opens up the price range and provides options allowing for a range of budgets across the board.

The HILIFE DIRECT LICENSING platform has effectively opened up the market to everyone, from the large organizations to the individual small budget project – allowing purchase options that would not ordinarily have been available.

About HILIFE MUSIC GROUP

HILIFE MUSIC was founded by Chairman and CEO, Adrian Fife, as a recording studio. The company quickly developed to include music and audio production, sound design and audio mastering, and worked with a number of artists to become a full record company.

HILIFE GROUP has been part of various music and fashion shows, sporting events, music and game awards, and has worked with numerous established and unknown artists, organizations, businesses, and charities that support deprive youth.

RICHARD BARBIERI Shares New Single and Video For “SERPENTINE”

Richard Barbieri Photo by Carl Glover

(photo credit: Carl Glover)

Preview of the Pioneering Artists’ New Solo Album Accompanied by Nightmarish 360 Degree Visual

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, March 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “SERPENTINE” HERE (https://youtu.be/cu2W-gEeKPs)

Richard Barbieri has shared a new single “Serpentine” – the first single from his upcoming solo album Under A Spell released on 26th February through Kscope.

Boasting a ground-breaking career that began in the late 70’s with synth-pop visionaries Japan and more recently as a member of influential art-rock band Porcupine Tree, Under A Spell is the first full length solo record from Richard Barbieri since 2017’s Planets + Persona.

The first song to be heard from Under A Spell, “Serpentine” is a winding and expansive six-minute soundscape that weaves through multiple genres and ideas. Complex, calming, engrossing and experimental, “Serpentine” is the perfect primer for Under a Spell – the work of a visionary musician working at his creative height.

The song is accompanied by a new 360 video created by Miles Skarin, allowing the viewer to travel along the floor of a foreboding forest, inspired by a nightmare Richard experienced and explained to the filmmaker.

Barbieri didn’t plan to make an album like Under A Spell, originally intending his fourth solo album to be a direct follow from its predecessor. That record, made in different studios across Europe and heavily incorporating live performances from a range of musicians, was adventurous and bold, showcasing Barbieri’s endlessly inventive song writing and mastery of electronic music. The follow-up would pick up where it left off, journeying further into the expansive terrain he mapped out on the previous record. And then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and everything changed. “I wrote and recorded it in my studio at home, with all this strangeness going on outside,” says Barbieri of Under A Spell. “It became something completely different: this weird, self-contained dream-state album.”

Barbieri's willingness to constantly redefine his own musical boundaries are never more evident than on the brilliant, hypnotic Under A Spell – the latest milestone on this utterly unique journey.

Richard Barbieri:
“Miles Skarin has created an amazing 360 degree video for the track ‘Serpentine’ from my new album ‘Under A Spell.’ It’s based on a vivid nightmare I experienced from the perspective of a snake. He has created this dense forest where past spells and rituals are glimpsed, strange voices are heard and where danger lies ahead. Don’t keep to the path! The track features a masterful bass arrangement from Percy Jones and the ‘hidden’ voices of Lisen Rylander Love and Steve Hogarth.”

You can see the video here.

NOTE: Viewing is recommended in Chrome or Safari and Firefox users may experience difficulties with the 360 elements. A VR headset will greatly improve the experience and we would recommend viewers with VR headsets to use them.

Under A Spell was released on Kscope on 26th February, on CD, gatefold double black vinyl LP, limited edition gatefold double red vinyl LP (exclusive to the Kscope store) and digitally with pre-orders available HERE (https://RichardBarbieri.lnk.to/UnderASpell)

New Independent Record Label in New York

Promote music through radio airplay

TROY, NY, UNITED STATES, March 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CONTACT: Larry Quinn 518-428-9629, E-mail: LQUINN1@NYCAP.RR.COM

Singer, songwriter, producer Larry Quinn has formed Third Son Records, a record label that offers musicians record production, distribution and promotional services.

“I have been in and out of the music business for over 50 years. I have spent many years building a reputation for well-produced songs. I have established excellent relationships with radio stations that look forward to my recordings.”

Quinn says his extensive music business experience as a songwriter, singer, band leader, producer and promoter will be an asset to musicians interested in recording original songs and achieving radio airplay.

Larry Quinn was the lead singer, songwriter and band leader of TREE FOX, a very popular Capital Region band in the 1970s. TREE FOX released a single and an album in 1979 on Fraternity Records of Cincinnati, Ohio. They also recorded and released a single in 1977 on AMG Records of Cincinnati. After the band broke up, Quinn produced demo tapes and records for local bands including ARIEL, who Quinn released on his then label, Double L Records, in 1984-85.

He recorded several songs with his son, guitar player Alexander Quinn in the early 2000s. Then he formed LARRY QUINN BAND and has since recorded and released four singles on Third Son Records. The songs have successfully acquired radio airplay.

“During this pandemic, it has been nearly impossible for bands to play live shows. Therefore my objective is to encourage songwriters to record their music and release it to radio stations. I believe the best way to promote music is through radio airplay,” Quinn said.

Third Son Records is based in Troy, NY. The company office is located in Larry Quinn’s home.

James Haidak’s New Music Production Blog Site Picking Up Steam in Online Rankings

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aspiring music producers can now access an up-and-coming music production blog site by industry expert James Haidak, which has generated immense online traffic since its recent release.

Haidak said since its launch, the website has ranked high on the first pages of search engine results for multiple keywords. As a result, the site has drawn increased traffic. According to Haidak, the site’s success can be attributed in part to the fact that he offers detailed and practical tips for getting ahead in the music production industry based on his own personal music production experience worldwide.

Haidak, who gravitates to breakbeat and electro music, said he became interested in music at age 8 after attending an eye-opening computer camp. At the camp, he learned how to produce simple melodies using a child-friendly program. His love and passion for music only grew after the camp. He finally dove into the art and science of music production at age 16 when two teachers motivated him to start pursuing it.

Since then, Haidak has continued to perfect his music production skill and thus has had opportunities to produce music alongside key industry DJs, including Britain’s John Digweed. In fact, he has gained recognition industrywide with multiple top-50 music releases in different genres during the past decade. Now, through his new website, he offers various tips for excelling as a music producer based on his extensive hands-on experience.

For instance, the website offers an in-depth look at how music producers can create their own DIY soundproofed rooms, which are essential for producing high-quality mixes and sounds. The site also highlights the benefits of using acoustic treatment—which is different from soundproofing—to further enhance the sound of the music being produced within a room. Through the site, readers should find the key information they need to successfully break into today’s competitive music production world, according to Haidak.

Jena Nahnsen to Serve as Aspire2STEAM Advisor

Your kind support matters!

You have the power to empower girls

Student leader and advocate for applied emotional intelligence in the arts helps guide nonprofit as it provides STEAM-focused scholarships and mentoring

Applying the arts to help power STEM and other academic and life pursuits, as well as to strengthen emotional intelligence, is something Jena knows well and practices daily.”

— Cheryl O'Donoghue, CEO & Co-Founder, Aspire2STEAM.org

DES MOINES, IOWA, UNITED STATES, March 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aspire2STEAM announced today that Jena Nahnsen, music educator, emotional intelligence in the Arts advocate and graduate student in clarinet performance at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee (UWM), has joined their advisory team. “Jena was instrumental in our recent decision to expand our scholarship program to underserved and often overlooked young women and girls pursuing STEAM-related careers, as well as helping us with our name change,” said Cheryl O’Donoghue, Aspire2STEAM CEO and Co-Founder. “Applying the arts to help power STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics—and other academic and life pursuits, as well as to strengthen emotional intelligence, is something Jena knows well and practices daily.”

In addition to providing scholarships for STEAM-related education, Aspire2STEAM offers its scholarship recipients ongoing one-on-one mentoring. Applying tips and techniques to strengthen one’s emotional intelligence and resiliency is a major focus. “Emotional intelligence study can be the missing piece for giving an unforgettable performance,” said Jena. “Whether you’re preparing for a music recital, engineering project or hackathon event, you raise your performance when you consider the positive emotional impact you want to have on your audience and teammates.”

Jena recently submitted a proposal to UWM’s music department chair to create and participate in an independent study “apprenticeship” designed to apply emotional intelligence practices to music performance. The University approved her proposal and Cheryl O’Donoghue, Aspire2Steam’s CEO, is serving as Jena’s apprenticeship mentor. “It’s quite remarkable what Jena’s been able to accomplish since the semester started just a couple months back,” said Cheryl. “In addition to creating online workbook materials and video tips for other students to apply emotional intelligence principles to their musical performances, she’s launched a social media emotional health awareness campaign and is planning a virtual recital where the audience will create an emotional intelligence-building experience together.”

The virtual recital is entitled “The Path is Peace” and will be streamed on Facebook live at 1 pm on Sunday, April 25. The concert features music by Beyond Boundaries—a clarinet and piano duo Jena created with her fiancé, Jacob Metzler (@Beyond Boundaries Duo on Facebook). The duo focuses on creative music programming to bring awareness to social issues and inspire audiences to work towards a kinder tomorrow.

In the process of preparing for The Path is Peace recital, Jena and Jacob are infusing emotional intelligence practices in four areas—program planning, preparation, performance, and post-performance. “Musicians have a natural ability when it comes to using emotional intelligence,” said Jena. “Using emotional intelligence can help break down the complex nature of putting together a single performance, taking a seemingly abstract concept and making it more approachable and useful to the performer.”

In addition to her work with Beyond Boundaries, Jena is attending University of Wisconsin Milwaukee as a first-year graduate student. She currently plays principal in the UWM orchestra and wind ensemble. She also plays in the Black Cat Quintet, a chamber group that put on a virtual recital to raise money for Street Angels Milwaukee. As a musician in her undergraduate studies, each year through competitive auditions, Jena won spots as principal clarinet in both the Iowa State University Wind Ensemble and orchestra. She was a prizewinner at the Schubert Club competition in St. Paul, MN and served as a performance fellow at The Cortona Sessions for New Music, Bay View Chamber Music Festival, Philadelphia International Music Festival, and Fresh Inc. Also, she appeared as a soloist with the Iowa State Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and jazz ensemble as well as executed an effective virtual senior recital.

About The Path is Peace virtual recital…

The Path is Peace recital, featuring the music of Beyond Boundaries, will be streamed on the Western Illinois University School of Music Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WesternIllinoismusic) and YouTube channel on Sunday, April 25 at 1 pm. The Path is Peace explores the destruction and transformation of humankind through a powerful multimedia performance experience. The event is open to all; there is no charge to attend. Free-will donations are encouraged, and all proceeds will go to help provide scholarships to young women and girls served by Aspire2STEAM.org.
