WD-HAN Live

Icarus is the perfect new-decade resolution to challenge the heights and reach for the sun, no matter what.

When in full swing, Icarus is a monster of a track full of rhythmic sultry Blues, yet those bluesy licks come with plenty of bite.”

— Amelia, A&R Factory

TAMPA BAY, FL, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Summertime Star Sign in November, saying goodbye to the past in haunting lyrics and deep, deep harmonics. Spaceman in December, disdaining the present in sharp angry rhythm. Now in January, Icarus, proclaiming the future in a driving, rocking, invincible message: no one can stop you. WD-HAN closed out one decade and opened the next with a triumvirate of songs celebrating life, all of it. Life isn’t always easy, but it’s yours to make better, and WD-HAN is right there with you through it all.

Versatile and creative lead guitar Cal, super-talented drummer Lea, and gritty-smooth singer Spencer meld almost-psychic synergy into original songs that dig into the heart and don’t let go.

Icarus is the perfect new-decade resolution to challenge the heights and reach for the sun, no matter what. They don’t get it? They don’t get you? Doesn’t matter. You’re the one flying. Starting the year at the Springboard West Festival in their California debut, WD-HAN has plans for tours in various parts of the US in 2020, while releasing a new song every 4-6 weeks. This is their year, their decade, and they want it to be your decade also.

“With a prelude offering reminiscences to Daughter, the sudden switch to anthemic Alt Rock in Icarus will have you on the edge of your proverbial seat. When in full swing, Icarus is a monster of a track full of rhythmic sultry Blues, yet those bluesy licks come with plenty of bite.” – Amelia Vandergast, A&R Factory Blog

HIP Video Promo presents: Aqua Seca premieres fantastically flippant "Don't Care" music video on New Noise Magazine

Aqua Seca

On-screen, “Don’t Care” shows reckless abandon – and a sense of limitless freedom.

ORANGE, CA, USA, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Watch "Don't Care" on New Noise Magazine

“Dry water” may seem to be an impossible concept – which means “Aqua Seca” is the perfect name for a musical project making impossibly creative sounds. In April 2019, Trent Hankinson began Aqua Seca, his new solo music project. But this Orange County, California native is not new to music in any way: he’s been playing drums since he was five and says that “music has always been a part of me, I wouldn’t know who I was without it.”

Hankinson is not just the mastermind, but the sole creative force at play here: though he enlists a live band for performances, he writes and plays all parts on Aqua Seca’s recordings himself (Greg Calbi of New York’s Sterling Sound masters everything). Taking influence from everyone from early Tame Impala to the Beach Boys, the first Aqua Seca album, Neural Stereo, will be released in January.

The new single “Don’t Care” is a taste of what to expect on Neural Stereo. Ever the mysterious creator, Hankinson isn’t one to reveal what the meaning of the song is – instead, every listener can take what they want from it and create their own meaning. On-screen, “Don’t Care” shows reckless abandon – and a sense of limitless freedom. The video was filmed on the Salt Flats in Utah – an epic, expansive setting that fits the feeling of the song itself. No matter which way you look, everything seems perfect and never-ending until you reach the horizon. Dressed in a suit and tie, our leading man sits down in an empty airplane seat… but where is he going? One thing’s for sure: he has no idea.

HIP Video Promo presents: Atlanta's Snypa drops a banger with his music video for "That's It"

Snypa – That’s It

He’s sneaking up on the national scene, and “That’s It” is the perfect single and video to usher in his blow-up

ATLANTA, GA, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — True to his name, Snypa has been dropping singles that seem to come from nowhere and snap heads back. With his rep solidified on the impossible-to-please streets of underground Atlanta, he’s sneaking up on the national scene, and “That’s It” is the perfect single and video to usher in his blow-up. He spits bars with a casual confidence that makes them feel off-the-dome, but that wordplay couldn’t possibly come from thin air. Or could it? The way he keeps delivering single after single, album after album leaves no time for pondering. He’s already getting crazy love from BET Jams for “That’s It,” and it’s high time everybody else gets up off the couch and play some catch-up.

Snypa does the ATL proud yet again with “That’s It.” It’s some more fire that was forged from another killer collab, much like his hit “On Everything,” a partnership with fellow up-and-comer KID808. KID808 mans the board here with Trell Got Wings, another of Atlanta’s homebrewed hustlers, who’s worked with Motown Records’ Rich Homie Quan, among others on his reel. This is the rare track that feels right at home maxed out on the dance floor, or setting the vibe in the VIP room. Here, Snypa’s straight up, stripped down lyrics glide on some snaky, stutter-step trap. KID808 and Trell Got Wings’ deep hypnotic thump clears a wide path as Snypa ping pongs between backing up his hustle and backing down his competition. Consider this the warning shot from his upcoming full-length Kinsman on WraithTalkMusic, and if you miss out on this one, well, for you? … that’s it.

Snypa and his crew post up in a dark, abandoned industrial space, and it could just as easily be an old factory in the Bluff, as a club that nobody’s telling you the password to. Director MI Visuals, aka The Pictureman, keeps the footage raw, gritty, and black and white. If there weren’t a handful of girls grinding inside mesmerizing rings of flickering fluorescents, the shots of Snypa and his boys staring down the camera might make you think you did them wrong, and this is the last thing you’re ever going to see. The Pictureman overlays split-second, old-school film flickers, giving the whole production an entrancing, narcotic feel, to match the music. When Snypa says he’s coming to “straighten out ya face like braces,” believe him, because his steady rise in the industry has only just begun.

HIP Video Promo presents: HABITZ cruises in style with infectious "Cadillac Drippin'" music video

Habitz – Cadillac Dippin

It's about taking a ride with that special lady, enjoying each others’ company in style and being that 2020 Bonny & Clyde.

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you familiar with dynamic rap duo HABITZ? You might not know them now, but you will soon – because it won’t be long till HABITZ are known as some of the biggest and greatest.

HABITZ is the brand-new collaboration between KNITWIT and Trazel. The two connected back in 2015 when Trazel was the first recording artist that KNITWIT signed to his label, ThugFace Records. “We’ve always been good friends and our talents and sound mesh together like butter whenever we collaborate,” KNITWIT says. “So it was easy for us to come together and form the group HABITZ.” Together, they blend Trazel’s smooth, sultry vibe with KNITWIT’s fast, in-your-face sound that’s like a west coast version of Outkast. Their goal? To bring back the timeless, old-school sound of early 90s R&B and hip-hop to the modern masses.

The first official single from HABITZ is “Cadillac Dippin,” a strong that will bring you straight back to the sound of 90s hip-hop. KNITWIT explains that “It is totally about taking a ride with that special lady, enjoying each others’ company in style and being that 2020 Bonny & Clyde. Rollin with the diamond in the back, sunroof top diggin in the scene with my gangsta lean.” Directed by Gary Ruff, the “Cadillac Dippin” video opens with KNITWIT and Trazel rolling up in an Escalade. They pop champagne poolside, but the real luxury tonight is the lady whose touch drives them crazy.

Sexual abuse lawsuit charges Palo Alto music school with protecting a teacher with sexual perversion tendencies

Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard Sexual Abuse Legal Team

Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard Sexual Abuse Legal Team

The sexual abuse legal team of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard represents the victim.

Root never should have been allowed to step foot in a School of Rock classroom, particularly where he would have private access to children.”

— Attorney Robert Allard

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A civil lawsuit filed last week charges a Palo Alto music school with negligence for allowing a known drug addict with sexual perversion tendencies to give one-on-one music lessons to a vulnerable 14-year-old girl.

The lawsuit was filed against the School of Rock franchise in Palo Alto along with the national franchisor, School of Rock, in Santa Clara County Superior Court on behalf of “Jane Doe” by Corsiglia McMahon & Allard partner and former California Attorney of the Year, Robert Allard.

In June 2018, John Patrick Root pleaded guilty to multiple counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child and served one year in Santa Clara County jail and is now a registered sex offender.

Root is a childhood friend of Felix Archuleta, co-owner of the music school. The Palo Alto School of Rock franchise was owned by Archuleta and Jackson Hansel Lynn under an LLC they formed, Because We Rock.

“Root never should have been allowed to step foot in a School of Rock classroom, particularly where he would have private access to children”, Allard said. “A routine Google search would have revealed that he was intimately engaged in pornography. His old friend Archuleta surely knew about this as well as his history of using hardcore drugs.”

Root’s relationship with the girl crossed numerous boundaries between January and July 2017, the lawsuit says. At that time, Root had relapsed into drug abuse and told the girl about his desire to have a sexual relationship with her. They began exchanging sexually explicit messages and photographs, and Root pressured her into having sex with him.

“This isn’t the first time the national School of Rock franchise has been in trouble for hiring sex abusers,” Allard said. “We know there have been at least five other child sex abuse cases that occurred between 2014 and 2017 involving School of Rock franchises.”

The Palo Alto case is particularly egregious because School of Rock did not suspend or fire Root when Archuleta learned that Root was engaged in inappropriate boundary violations and had romantic feelings for his underage female student. Instead, he was merely cautioned “Keep it to the music, man.”

Under California law, Archuleta and School of Rock are considered “mandatory reporters,” meaning they were required to report suspected abuse to law enforcement.

“They not only enabled abuse, but worse they didn’t notify police despite red flags being all over the place,” Allard said. “Instead, we believe that they tried to cover it up to protect the reputation of their business. In doing so, they acted with reckless disregard for their students’ safety.”

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for the harm done to the minor child.

HIP Video Promo presents: Nuke The Soup premieres adrenaline-inducing "Feed The Fire" music video on Music-News.com

Nuke The Soup – Feed The Fire

Nuke The Soup – Deeper

A longtime participant in skiing, windsurfing, and kiting, it was natural that he'd write a song incorporating all three of those sports.

BALTIMORE, MD, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Watch "Feed The Fire" on Music-News.com

Fiercely independent before it was cool, Mark Davison – formerly a founding member of Cubic Feet and now the frontman of Nuke the Soup – knows what it means to make a statement. On the band's 2018 album Deeper, they meditate on politics, global warming, commercialism, personal relationships, and the state of our world. Deeper is here to make you think – and thinking can be damn uncomfortable.

Oh, and Davison knows how to write a damn-good song too. Together with keyboardist Brian Simms, bassist Mike Mennell, guitarists Rennie Grant, Andy Thurston, Gerry "Spooky Ghost" Leonard (David Bowie), and drummer Chester Thompson (Genesis, Zappa), he's crafted witty and joyous songs, even as they dive into some dark themes.

And when Nuke the Soup brings things to the screen, you can be sure [you'll have a good time]. While he was working on the words and music that would eventually become Deeper, Davison was also embarking on a series of trips with friends and family that played into what's now the new video "Feed the Fire." A longtime participant in skiing, windsurfing, and kiting, it was natural that he'd write a song incorporating all three of those sports, "especially considering those activities could be considered to be Nukin' the Soup."

Nuke the Soup often brings Caribbean influence to their music, and the ska beat of "Feed the Fire" was a natural fit with all the adrenaline-packed action. Davison says that "it's always exciting to me when I see snow falling or it's windy" – and that excitement bleeds all the way through on-screen. After opening with a scene shot in the snowy, quiet Fernie, BC – a town that's not unlike Bedford Falls in It's a Wonderful Life – "Feed the Fire" focuses on three athletes, one from each sport: professional ski guide Kieren Gaul (Rossland, BC); windsurfer Andy Pusch (Cabarete, DR); and professional kiter Georgina Monti (Cabarete, DR). No matter what time of year it is or where you are on the globe, "Feed the Fire" will get you up off your seat and ready to groove.

Katrina Stone Among List of Artists Affected by Unprecedented Intellectual Property Theft on Music Streaming Services

Katrina Stone

Over 112 artists have been confirmed as victims of intellectual property theft, with recordings stolen by fake artist accounts on all major streaming services.

I reached out to Spotify, Apple, and Amazon, and they would not help me.”

— Katrina Stone

NASHVILLE, TN, USA, January 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As reported last week by Saving Country Music, over 112 artists have been confirmed as victims of intellectual property theft, wherein their recordings have been directly stolen and repurposed by fake artist accounts operating on all major streaming services, including Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, Google Play, YouTube, and many more. Saving Country Music reports that the theft includes at least 831 songs, which have received in excess of 5 millions streams, generating an estimated $1,500 per week for owners of 24 confirmed fake accounts.

Los Angeles-based pop artist Katrina Stone was tipped off by fans that heard her music through Spotify’s Discovery Weekly feature, which means that the stolen songs are actively being promoted on streaming services. To date, Stone has identified 26 songs stolen and being sold by fraudulent accounts.

“I reached out to Spotify, Apple, and Amazon, and they would not help me,” Stone told Saving Country Music. "They were just too big. I had the burden of proof. To put in 26 copyright claims, one per song per streaming site would take forever. So I just went to the source. I reached out to DistroKid, and they opened an inquiry, discovered that all the music was mine, and then they said it would be down in about a week.”

As of last week, Stone has successfully had all 26 stolen tracks removed from the major streaming sites, over 7 months from the date they were first posted by the fraudulent accounts. Most troubling is that the technology to prevent such widespread theft and redistribution already exists. Stone, as well as Saving Country Music and other artists affected, used the free Shazam app to locate many of the stolen songs. Without regulation, there is little incentive for distributers to protect artists and songwriters.

“There’s nothing really stopping them,” Stone told Saving Country Music. “Even though my stuff was just pulled, they could upload it today under a different name, and I wouldn’t be able to find it. There’s no way for me to search for it. And who does the responsibility fall on? DistroKid makes you click a little box that says, ‘I acknowledge that this work is 100% my own.’ But you can just lie, and then they don’t have any responsibility anymore. Meanwhile streaming services are trusting these distributors.”

While this type of intellectual property theft should be concerning for everyone, it doesn't have the financial impact for multi-platinum artists that it does for the scores of hard-working independent artists who rely on their music sales as a primary source of income.

"Any normal person would get upset if the car they drive to work everyday was stolen," says Stone. "These songs are not only my property, they are how I make a living. I don't want anyone to get away with it anymore."

About Katrina Stone:
While the independent music scene in Los Angeles is vast and daunting, there are, on occasion, acts that break through the noise to prove their relevance as music moguls in the making. Katrina Stone is one of those rare talents. She has been lauded on an international scale through scoring brand endorsements, performing on national stages like the Warped Tour and CityWalk Hollywood, and even earning critical praise for her songwriting that can be heard in advertisements around the world. Her infectious pop track "Never Wanna Grow Up" continues to attract national attention with licensing placements with brands such as Wayfair, Hulu, Apple, Pez, and many more. Stone is currently wrapping up production on a forthcoming album, due in May, with a tour to follow.
