Indie Artist’s Remixed Single Charts Alongside Jason Derulo

NYC-based artist Miranda Writes

Miranda Writes “Too Blessed” Peaks at Number 12/5800 in Digital DJ Pool

With no significant financial backing, it can be so hard to get attention. This accomplishment proves it is possible!”

— Miranda Writes

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It goes without saying that independent artists often receive the short end of the stick. With more mainstream artists dominating the airwaves and overall music scene, performers who are still climbing the ranks to stardom are often left behind. Or, at least, left in the shadows of famous artists.

For Miranda Writes being independent has created a unique niche as an artist and only strengthened her diverse platform.

A performer who refuses to be boxed in, Miranda is a powerhouse with major crossover appeal. Her unique sound has not only been appealing to her vastly growing audience, but a major success in the DJ circuit.

As of September 20, 2018, Miranda Writes’ remixed single “Too Blessed” has risen to number 12 in the pop singles of Digital DJ Pool, a popular platform for DJs to discover new music. The song at one point charted alongside popular artists Jason Drool, Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dog, Ciara and Miranda Lambert.

“The music industry is full of competition, especially as a biracial female indie artist. With no significant financial backing, it can be so hard to get attention. This accomplishment proves it is possible! Presently, I feel ‘Too Blessed to be Stressed’ and am soaking up the positive vibes,” commented Miranda Writes.

Digital DJ Pool is not the only platform where Miranda is gaining headway. Since releasing her latest single “Time to Time,” her music video has received over 130,000 views on YouTube in just over thirty days.

Miranda is set to perform at the popular Apple Fest, taking place October 14, where over 30,000 people gather annually to enjoy fall festivities and local entertainment.

About Miranda Writes: New York City-based artist Miranda Writes creates lyrically-focused hip-hop with an eclectic sound that crosses genres and decades. Inspired by 90' hip-hop and contemporary music, Miranda has a modern yet back-to-the basic sound powered by original lyrics. In January of 2018, Miranda Writes’ 2017 album Know Your Worth was awarded the 2018 Rap Album of the Year, by the Warlock Asylum. When not on the mic during the winter Miranda loves to snowboard, which opened new commercial markets for her besides music such as fashion, snowboarding, and fitness. Miranda’s goal is to make a positive impact on the music industry and her fans.

With Nearly 40 Hip Hop Singers Dead, Rap's Rising Star RaHTwoFive Thanks Drake and Meek Mill for Spreading the Love; Calls Others to Avoid Rap Wars

I feel my mission is to help lessen the division that exists in America and the world, and lessen this negativity on Earth, to really help people see and feel real love.”

— RahTwoFive

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, US, September 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — RahTwoFive is on a mission for peace. The former feud between rappers Drake and Meek Mill publicly ended this month, with Meek Mill appearing on stage with Drake, according to Rolling Stone stating, "This one of my favorite rappers," and adding, "We need more peace in the world, we need more love in the world." RahTwoFive states this was a very good thing, very inspiring, and that we need more of this in the rap and hip hop community," and he intends to do just that.

With the East Coast / West Coast feud in rap still strong, with nearly 40 or more rap artists murdered, RahTwoFive; one of hottest rising new stars in the rap, hip hop, and R&B world, is calling out for rap and hip hop stars to avoid the trap of the old-school trend of dissing other rappers, which he says is foolish, and can lead to real violence.

As noted in GQ Magazine several years ago, Drake was reportedly dissed by Chris Brown, Ludacris, DMX, Common, and Lil' Kim. Drake and Kanye have recently had conflict, with Kayne reportedly stating it was wrong for Drake to be sent 'bad energy' in a song, and offering to make peace. Meanwhile, female rappers Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have been fighting, with Nicki Minaj reportedly wanting to end the feud.

While some rap and hip hop battles may be good publicity, the fact is RaHTwoFive reminds, "words have power," and can turn into real battles. "It has got to stop," RaHTwoFive says, reminding of the growing body count of hip hop and rappers who have been murdered, at nearly 40 deaths.

One of RaH's missions he says, is "to help lessen the division that exists in America and the world, and lessen this negativity on Earth, to really help people see and feel real love." Maintaining his positive mindset, RaH says he is "intent on creating an immense, positive impact on the world through heart-changing art." He credits his hope and faith with keeping him grounded, and optimistic.

RahTwoFive, as he is known on Instagram, or otherwise simply known as RaH, is now recognized by numerous in the music industry as one of the most important new singers to watch. Having racked up over a half-million new streams and growing on SoundCloud alone, the singer is already working on his second new album.

Hollywood Sentinel states, "Where most new singers have a great voice but lack in solid songwriting, or have great production but lack in vocals, RaH has uniquely got it all, with strong songwriting and production, tight instrumentation, and well crafted mixes ranging from rap to R&B. His further education in fashion design and a model look certainly will not hurt his rise to the top either. Fans of Drake and Kayne should definitely appreciate him."

Hailing from Detroit, RaH is ready to dominate not only America, but also the massive Indian Bollywood market, Europe, and the rest of the world as well. Speaking and singing in fluent English, RaH, who is of Indian origin, also speaks fluent Hindi, Punjabi, and even some Spanish.

With the first three letters of his full name; "Rahul," turning into his artist name, RaH says got his nickname back in high school, which his friends used to call him. RaH states, "I think it's cool, because it's the name of the Sun God of Egyptian mythology, and I love the sun! My family and I traveled to Egypt around the same time I got the nickname, and it just stuck. I've also studied quite a bit of Egyptian mythology, and thing it's cool."

With a love of music, and an array of musical influences, RaH states that he is influenced by "People who are not afraid to express their true feelings, even if it's controversial to the general public." Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Usher, Diddy, The Weekend, and Billy Joel have influenced the young singer, adding that he is influenced by "artists who perform at a super-high level, and take their artistry beyond the music; into short films, and amazing shows."

A fashion designer as well as a singer, RaH's skill on keys help his songwriting and musical ability. Yet he says, he enjoys focusing on vocals. RaH states that he and his brother always used to sing around the house growing up. As a teenager, he began to love singing, and released his first song at just seventeen, getting he says, "A really good response." He then realized that music was something he wanted to seriously pursue. Now with two albums, nine solid new tracks out, and two outstanding music videos to his credit for "Super Winner" and "Purple Tears," RaH's passion is quickly paying off, with an impressive and rapidly growing fan base.

Shockingly having done no major promotion for his popular songs on his SoundCloud page, fans catapulted the singer into one of the more successful artists on the site, gaining tens of thousands, and in some cases, hundreds of thousands of listeners per track.

RaH adds, "I can't wait for you all to hear my new songs and see my videos! You can stay up to date on my Instagram, which will feature news of all the new releases. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! I love creating and sharing with you. Thank you for believing in me!"

BOWIE’S PIANO MAN + THE SYMPHONIC SUITE FOR HEALING 2 FEATURING MIKE GARSON

Long Beach based non-profit organization Able ARTS Work announces inaugural benefit concert entitled Bowie’s Piano Man + The Symphonic Suite for Healing 2, featuring an incredible performance by world renowned pianist Mike Garson on Sunday November 4, 2018 at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro.

LONG BEACH, CA (August 1, 2018) — Long Beach based non-profit organization Able ARTS Work announced today that on Sunday November 4, 2018 they will host their inaugural benefit concert entitled Bowie’s Piano Man + The Symphonic Suite for Healing 2, featuring an incredible performance by world renowned pianist Mike Garson. Garson, who is best known for being David Bowie’s longest and most frequent band member, performed across the globe alongside Bowie in over 1,000 concerts.

Bowie’s Piano Man +The Symphonic Suite for Healing 2 featuring Mike Garson will be hosted at the iconic art-deco Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, which was opened to the public in 1931 and was the first sound-equipped theatre in the South Bay. Boasting 1,500 seats, ticket prices vary (starting at $25.00 per ticket) and sponsorships to support Able ARTS Work are available.

The first half of this matinee event will unveil Garson's newest Symphonic Suite for Healing, followed by a second half featuring Bowie hits such as “Life on Mars,” “Five Years,” “Lady Grinning Soul,” and Garson's most famous Bowie collaboration “Aladdin Sane,” which includes his jaw-dropping solo you won't want to miss live. Garson will be joined onstage by world-class musicians and vocalists, including Grammy nominees Gaby Moreno and Maysa Karaa, along with Joe Sumner and Brett Hool.

Able ARTS Work’s primary mission is to provide life-long learning, community service and vocational opportunities through the creative arts for people with disabilities in an environment of warmth, encouragement, and inclusion. Launched in 1982 (yet rebranded just two years ago) their day program provides creative studio settings and facilitation for disabled adults in music, drawing, painting, photography, and more. The programs are enriched with music therapy services as well, which has been especially effective for the adults with autism and cerebral palsy in the program. Dolas’ idea for the organization was born in the late 1970’s when she was a music therapy student and visited state run developmental centers—she didn’t see much activity in state hospitals, patients needed more hands-on treatment and it became one of her life goals to provide that. Through art and music, Able ARTS Work has impacted tens of thousands of lives throughout Long Beach, Orange County, Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley, and Ventura County.

The Denver-based singer-songwriter is promoting his latest releases, "Home Again" and "The Canadian River." His single reached #23 on the FolkDJ radio charts.

His songwriting is impeccable, and his vocals have a quality that is very reminiscent of the masters of his genre. Classic, yet overwhelmingly contemporary with what's going on right now.”

— Michael Stover, President, MTS Management Group

DENVER, CO, USA, September 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MTS Management Group is proud to announce the signing of folk/americana singer-songwriter from Denver, CO, James Lee Baker. Baker is best known for his Top 25 FolkDJ radio chart single, "The Canadian River." MTS will be handling promotions for Baker, focusing on his EP of the same name, and 2017 full-length release, "Home Again."

"I'm extremely excited to welcome James to the MTS Family!" said Michael Stover, President of MTS. "This guy's the real deal. His songwriting is impeccable, and his vocals have a quality that is very reminiscent of the masters of his genre. Classic, yet overwhelmingly contemporary with what's going on right now."

A lyric video for his latest single is planned for fall release.

ABOUT JAMES LEE BAKER: A classically trained musician, James Lee Baker fuses influences from acoustic singer-songwriters like David Mead, Ellis Paul, John Gorka, Gregory Alan Isakov, Bob Dylan, and Slaid Cleaves. He embraces open tunings to create an unconventional but welcoming sound and timbre to his playing. Trained briefly by Richard Gilewitz, a renowned fingerstyle guitar player, James Lee's fingerstyle guitar playing is rich and melodic, pulling listeners into memorable motifs and atmospheres.

In 2017, Baker released a Texas-inspired full-length project called "Home Again." Harnessing his experience in technology, Baker recruited talented studio session musicians, accessing performers from Los Angeles, Canada, The United Kingdom, and Denver. "Home Again" is a Country-flavored Americana album, rich with instrumentation like dobro, lap steel, fiddle, and harmonica.

In March, he released an EP of Folk/Americana songs called The Canadian River. The single of the same title placed #23 on the FolkDJ radio charts in April of 2018, and the song "Two Cageless Birds" went on to be selected for the John O'Hara Songwriting Performance Grant.

James has played at several prominent venues including the Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles, The Fox Theater in Boulder, and Swallow Hill and The Walnut Room in Denver.

I AM CHARLIE – Now Playing at At Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica

Joe Le Mieux as Charlie Manson in I AM CHARLIE

I AM CHARLIE @ Promenade Playhouse

The World Premiere of I AM CHARLIE Now Playing in Santa Monica at Promenade Playhouse

The material is interesting and in depth. Lead actor Joe Le Mieux keenly portrays Manson in all of his deluded, unaffected psychosis.”

— GIA ON THE MOVE (Tracey Paleo)

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — I AM CHARLIE a World Premiere play by Stephen A. Cardinal now playing at The Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica, CA explores the question: Why is the Charlie meme chiseled in granite when other 20th century memes are completely and continuously malleable? Most people will agree what was bizarre in 1969 would be old news in a few days and forgotten in a week.

I Am Charlie is NOT the play you were expecting about Charles Manson. It looks at the Charles Manson story through the mind of Charlie himself. The plot uses stage devices and audio-visual technology to immerse the audience as participants. The audience becomes part of the play. The distance between fact and fiction is reduced, mimicking the blurring of truth and fiction in contemporary news media. Because we don’t really know the complete fact and fiction of the Manson story and the effects it has had on society in the last fifty years the play leaves it up to the audience to make that judgment on their own.

Joe LeMieux stars as Charlie Manson. Joe was born and raised in Venice, California. He enrolled in the Joan Baron Conservatory for the Cinematic Arts at the age of 20, and since then has directed and acted in several music videos, television commercials, comedy shorts, and feature films. Theatre trained actors will appreciate that Joe traveled to NY for a period of years and became extraordinarily “Meisner Trained” as a Bill Esper Conservatory graduate. Joe is currently appearing on the Instagram show “The Valet Boyz” and his upcoming Feature Film, “Happy Journey” is slated for release in Sept. 2018

Stephen A. Cardinal is a film and television screenwriter and a playwright. He is a graduate of the UCLA Professional Program in Screenwriting. His screenplays have achieved awards from screenwriting competitions (Blue Cat and Scriptapalooza). He has written Television pilots that have been reviewed for production by major Hollywood studios. His work in the development of short form and long form Television "Bibles", the critical documents needed to receive serious consideration by production executives, has led to a training program to help writers create and hone these important documents. His play I am Charlie looks at the Charles Manson story through the mind of Charlie himself.

He has worked extensively with screenwriters in the critical evaluation and improvement of their work, particularly in rewriting scripts before presentation to production executives.
His extensive business training and experience, including a Masters degree in Marketing give him a unique perspective on the business side of the film industry.
Steve and Tom work as co-writers creating and developing projects for Film and Television and together they maintain a “Development” deal with a major streaming network.

Tom Waters makes his second Promenade Playhouse Directorial turn with Stephen A. Cardinal’s I Am Charlie. In 2017 Tom Directed Dean Ghaffari’s critically acclaimed Rebel With a Cause:The Sal Mineo Story. In 2016 Tom was Assistant Director to Promenade Playhouse Artistic Director Natalia Lazarus for Dennis Wilson Forevermore:A Beach Boy’s Fable.

Tom was formerly associated with the Hidden Hills Playhouse and with Neon Art Productions in Los Angeles, where he produced and co-produced several stage plays including the financially successful and critically acclaimed Working by Studs Terkel presented at the world famous Mayfair Music Hall in Santa Monica, California. The building that housed the Mayfair is located just across the alley from our backstage door!

In 2012, Tom stepped behind the camera and started El Gato Rojo Productions. EGR’s first production was the documentary The Best Thing for the Inside of a Marine is the Outside of a Horse and the pilot episodes of the TV series Paranormal Experience which Tom created, produced, directed and hosted.
Tom has a standing development “deal” with one of the major streaming networks.

With David and Peter’s coaching Tom began a successful run of stage appearances including Our Town, Working and Typist and the Tiger. Tom’s most critically acclaimed role as Danny in Night Must Fall came at the insistence of Jack Palance who convinced Tom to take on this great part. It was Jack that also encouraged Tom to write the re-make of the film version of Night Must Fall.

NAMIC announces the super heroes of its 2018 Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards

EMMA logo

Award Entries Soar 28 Percent Year-Over-Year

NAMIC’s EMMAs recognize those in the industry who develop marketing practices acknowledging the changing demographics driving our nation today.”

— Shana Bellot, EMMA judge and NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee member

NEW YORK, USA, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) today announced the winners of its Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards (EMMA). The competition recognizes excellence in marketing efforts designed to attract and retain culturally diverse audiences and customers among African American, Asian, Latinx, LGBTQ, disabilities communities and other market segments. This year’s EMMA winners will be celebrated during the 32nd Annual NAMIC Conference “Empower Leaders, Create Super Heroes” on October 16-17, 2018 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

“As communication leaders, it is important to be forward-thinking when connecting with multi-ethnic consumers,” said Shana Bellot, client service director for StrawberryFrog, EMMA judge and NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee member. “NAMIC’s EMMAs recognize those in the industry who develop marketing practices acknowledging the changing demographics driving our nation today. This year’s winning campaigns underscore how targeted, diverse communication results in genuine consumer connections.”

Recognizing the media and entertainment industry’s commitment to implementing best practices, the Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards highlight creative, strategic and innovative multicultural marketing approaches. The NAMIC Multicultural Marketing Committee, a consortium of industry experts, provides guidance for the EMMA competition, which has two award categories: Integrated Marketing Campaigns and Marketing Tactics. Entries in each category were judged within four divisions: Media Content Creators and Distributors, Networks and Communications Suppliers, Brands and All Other Media.

A judging panel of independent industry experts evaluated entries, which were up 28% YOY, and selected winners based on an assessment of strategy, implementation and results. Deviating from the traditional “best of” competition method, each entry was judged against a standard of excellence and not against other entrants, resulting in the potential for zero to multiple winners in each category.

The EMMAs is presented in partnership with Cablefax and the winners will be featured in the October 2018 edition of Cablefax: The Magazine. A complete listing of winners follows:
