Jessica Meuse | © L.A. Entertainment, Inc.

I’m proud and excited that "Love Her Better" is being recognized at these festivals.”

— Jessica Meuse

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, November 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The music video “Love Her Better” by Jessica Meuse has garnished honors at multiple film festivals this year. The Nevada International Film Festival just announced the release as a 2018 Platinum Reel Award Winner, while the video has also been an Official Selection at both the Great Lakes Film Festival and Laughlin International Film Festival.

Directed by Jim Ervin and written by Meuse, the video was filmed in the Maldives while Jessica was performing a number of concerts there. It premiered in November 2017 at Children’s Cancer Association’s Bedstock Festival, as part of #GivingTuesday. "I’m proud and excited that 'Love Her Better’ is being recognized at these festivals,” commented Meuse. "It was created for such a wonderful cause by CCA and I’m elated that the music is resonating with so many people!"

“Love Her Better” is part of Jessica’s new 15-song album, “Halfhearted,” which was just released this fall. The album hit Top 10 on iTunes Country Albums and has already amassed over 2.5 million song streams on Spotify, Apple Music, and other music services. Meuse’s songwriting represents the life, loves, and breakups that she has endured. It demonstrates the heartfelt dedication that has always driven her to succeed both personally and professionally.

Currently, Jessica's first radio single from the album, “Thank God It Didn’t Work,” is being promoted at country stations nationally. The video of the song on Facebook has been viewed over 1 million times, it has been an Apple Music Country Hot Track, added to numerous high-profile playlists, and has also just hit the Mediabase Top 100 Country Radio Station Chart.

“Thank God It Didn’t Work is easily relatable to folks everywhere who have been faced with challenges in their life and then looked back later grateful that they didn’t work out,” notes Meuse. “Initially, I auditioned for The Voice, but not one of the judges turned around. I was crushed. But, had I known that less than a year later I’d make Top 4 on American Idol, I wouldn’t have worried so much about it.”

Jessica Meuse is touring throughout the coming year in support of her album. On a personal note, she is a fitness buff and brand ambassador for various products who dedicates time to raising awareness about Domestic Violence, Cyberbullying, St. Jude, and Children’s Cancer Association.

NEWLY REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — FEATURING AN ADDITIONAL 39 BONUS TRACKS DRAWN FROM NEW 5.1 SURROUND SOUND & STEREO MIXES FROM THE ORIGINAL MULTI-TRACK MASTER TAPES, BBC RADIO SESSIONS FROM 1976, PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED OUT-TAKES FROM THE ALBUM SESSIONS, ALONG WITH A PREVIOUSLY RELEASED UNISSUED 1976 HARVEST RECORDS PROMO VIDEO OF “SHIPS IN THE NIGHT” & A BBC TV OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST APPEARANCE FROM FEBRUARY 1976

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered four disc deluxe expanded boxed set limited edition (comprising 3 CDs and a DVD) of SUNBURST FINISH the legendary 1976 album by BE-BOP DELUXE.

Recorded in the Autumn of 1975 at Abbey Road studios (with some sessions also taking place at AIR studios in London), SUNBURST FINISH was the third album by Be-Bop Deluxe and the first to feature the line-up of BILL NELSON (vocals, guitars, keyboards), CHARLIE TUMAHAI (bass, vocals), ANDY CLARK (keyboards) and SIMON FOX (drums). It was also the first BE-BOP DELUXE album to be co-produced by BILL NELSON and JOHN LECKIE. An album of immense musical inventiveness and creativity, SUNBURST FINISH was one of the finest albums of its era, a perfect cohesion of ten classic songs written by BILL NELSON (featuring his highly imaginative guitar playing) and a stylized and striking artwork package. Featuring such classic material as “Heavenly Homes”, “Crying to the Sky”, “Sleep that Burns”, “Life in the Air Age”, “Crystal Gazing” and “Blazing Apostles”, the album also spawned the hit single “Ships in the Night” and launched BE-BOP DELUXE as one of the major breakthrough acts of 1976.

This expanded reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 39 bonus tracks drawn from a stunning new 5.1 surround sound & stereo mixes from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, previously unreleased out-takes from the album sessions, a BBC Radio “In Concert” performance from January 1976, a rare John Peel Show session from February 1976 (unavailable on CD for over twenty years), along with an unissued and previously unreleased 1976 Harvest Records promotional video for “Ships in the Night” and a session for BBC TV's “Old Grey Whistle Test” show from January 1976.

Another highlight of this limited edition boxed set is the lavishly illustrated 68-page book with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. Additionally, the set includes a facsimile of the 1976 SUNBURST FINISH tour programme, postcards and a replica poster.

I am looking forward to fans being able to see the first in a new series of commercials and other promotions I have just completed filming.

— Jaafar Jackson

LOS ANGELES , CALIFORNIA , UNITED STATES , November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In 1983, Micheal Jackson released the Thriller album making his second single, "Billie Jean" the first video to break MTV's rock only format. 35 years later his nephew, Jaafar Jackson continues the family's legacy of innovation by integrating Blockchain technology and music. With the help of music veteran/entrepreneur Jimmy Thomas and Blockchain platform, NASGO, Jackson is one of the first American recording artists to utilize blockchain technology to launch his entertainment company and recording label JUSIC.

Jaafar Jackson, the second youngest son to legendary singer, songwriter, and producer Jermaine Jackson and nephew to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, had aspirations of being a professional golfer, however, having grown up surrounded by a family that notably holds the most iconic musical influencers in the world, it was only natural that Jaafar followed suit.

In his first official JUSIC vlog, Jaafar reflects on the musical influences, family work ethic, and debut project.

IP’s “PR problem” will be Discussed by Leading Figures at Public Event in New York

What to do about intellectual property’s negative image is the focus of the IP Awareness Summit, a gathering of concerned owners, educators and creators, Nov 29

Remarkably, in what I believe amounts to Orwellian ‘doublespeak,’ those who’ve been advancing the patent troll narrative argue that they do so because they are actually pro-innovation.”

— USPTO Director Andrei Iancu

NEW YORK, NY, USA, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leading intellectual property owners, creators, educators organizations and managers will consider the best ways to improve literacy about the role and impact of IP rights at the second annual IP Awareness Summit in New York on November 29.

IPAS will examine how increases in information access and speed have affected how patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets are seen and why they often fail to be accepted as “legitimate” property. The Summit also will address improving IP literacy through education and the media. Registration is open to the public.

IP Thought-Leaders

Featured speakers include United Stated Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Director Andrei Iancu, leading inventors, educators and the media.

Director Iancu said in fireside chat before more than 600 members of the Licensing Executives Society in Boston on October 15 that IP faces a public relations problem and the once heralded American inventor is no longer seen as a hero. He amplified those remarks at a speech later that week before the Eastern District of Texas Bar Association:

“Remarkably, in what I believe amounts to Orwellian ‘doublespeak,’ those who’ve been advancing the patent troll narrative argue that they do so because they are actually pro-innovation. That by their highlighting, relentlessly, the dangers in the patent system, they actually encourage innovation…

“What an odd message to deliver in the 21st century. What an odd message to deliver in America in particular, a country of risk-takers, entrepreneurs and inventors. An odd message indeed, especially given the incredible success of the American patent system over time.”

Others who will address be addressing IP literacy issues at IPAS 2018 include Manny Schecter, Chief Patent Counsel at IBM and President of the Intellectual Property Owners Education Foundation, and Jay walker, entrepreneur, Priceline.com founder, TEDMED curator and one of the most prolific U.S. inventors. There will be panels, other speakers and breakouts with audience participation.

Among those already registered for IPAS 2018 are IP owners, executives, educators, creators, service providers, investors, lawyers, IP organizations and the media. The remaining tickets will go fast.

Lonnie Liggitt of Horace Hopper’s Musical Adventures to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Remember the very first time you put your hand on a piano? It didn’t matter which notes you played, you were just amazed that it made a sound.

But something happens along the way for many music students. Too often the traditional focus on technique and theory robs children of their enthusiasm for musical expression before they can even begin. Learning an instrument, which should be a fun and creative experience, becomes just more homework.

All his life, Lonnie Liggitt has immersed himself in musical composition and performance as a pianist, organist and conductor. Today, Liggitt is the president of Horace Hopper's Musical Adventures, Inc. Horace Hopper offers children from pre-K to 6th grade incredible musical adventures for the keyboard or computer that they can use at home or in the classroom. With Horace Hopper, students are free to really explore what the piano can do; they are free express themselves, making music the profound experience it’s meant to be.

“As a child learning something new, you’re always playing somebody else’s music or ideas,” says Liggitt. “So from the very beginning I have the students start writing their own music.”

According to Liggitt, when you can pair music education with early childhood education, it’s one of the most effective ways to engage a child in the educational process, no matter what level of development they may be. Horace Hopper stimulates creativity and interest in children through musical painting, different languages, sampled drums and orchestral instruments.

“These fantastic young people, no matter what their race, or gender, or age, can start developing the idea of adventure in music,” says Liggitt. “It got me excited because the students got excited.”

Liggitt has been involved in research in early childhood education for 15 years. His work, funded through private foundations, state grants and with venture capital, investigates the relationship between his music applications and the communication skills of higher functioning autistic and Asperger's Syndrome diagnosed children.

“For the first time in my life, I feel like I am doing something I’d like to be remembered for,” says Liggitt. “I’ve performed in concerts all over Europe and in New York and universities, but it wasn’t until I discovered how you can help turn kids around, especially autistic kids. Music can be like traveling through outer space. It draws you in.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Lonnie Liggitt in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on Thursday November 29th at 1pm EST and with Jim Masters on November 15th at 1pm EST and Thursday December 13th at 1pm EST.
