New Age Artists Paul Adams & Elizabeth Geyer To Release DEEPER IMAGININGS on November 15, 2019

DEEPER IMAGININGS by Paul Adams & Elizabeth Geyer is a follow up to 2015's IMAGININGS

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, November 17, 2019 / — Bringing together some of the worlds most accomplished musicians, DEEPER IMAGININGS by Paul Adams and Elizabeth Geyer is a follow up to 2015's IMAGININGS which debuted #1 on the iTunes new age chart and was the Zone Music Reporter's best Contemporary Instrumental Album of the year. It was a journey of happenstance, whimsy and the joy of sharing music and love between cultures. Elizabeth came all the way from Australia. Pravin Godkhindi played bansuri flute in India. Alp Akmaz who played the balaban (similar to duduk) is from Turkey. Former trumpet soloist and arranger David Hoffman is based in Illinois, and Gary Green of the legendary UK band Gentle Giant added gentle guitar.

Adams, with over 102 million streams on Pandora has shown that walking the road less traveled can work. “We all love to create much like a painter. The choice of color and hue is from the artist's whim and is independent from corporate dictate. I was thrilled to be able to use some of the instruments I built in my earlier years as a luthier. Guitars, dulcimer and electric sitar was blended with the natural genius of Elizabeth Geyer's piano, flugelhorn and voice, used in a textural and ambient way. Her ear is stunning and her musical intuition and training in jazz blended well with my rather improvised gentle folk approach, as well as training in ethnomusicology”

For Adams and Geyer, meeting Pravin Godkhindi on YouTube and Alp Akmaz on Instagram seems appropriate given today’s ease of technology. The fact that the musical co-operation was so natural shows what a tool it is to embrace and grow as the world shrinks around us. Adams comments that “there was an intuitive vibe in connecting with these musicians. A lot of freedom was encouraged. We had faith that each knew the best way to fill their role, and they really did.”

DEEPER IMAGININGS can be found on the web and all digital sites like iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, CD Baby, Spotify and Pandora

Italian Music Artists EMILIANO DEFERRARI & MARCO MACHERA To Release Free-Form Improvisation Album On November 15, 2019

Emiliano Deferrari & Marco Machera - Emiliano Deferrari, Marco Machera Cover

Emiliano Deferrari & Marco Machera – Emiliano Deferrari, Marco Machera

Emiliano Deferrari & Marco Machera

Emiliano Deferrari & Marco Machera

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, November 16, 2019 / — Italian music artists EMILIANO DEFERRARI & MARCO MACHERA are releasing their debut self-titled album of free-form improvisation on November 15, 2019. Long-time musical friends, Emiliano and Marco had never worked together, but always liked each other's music, and attended each other's performances. Emiliano's band Nanaue used to cover one of Marco's great tunes “The Ugly Song.” Throughout the years, the two musicians discovered very similar taste in music, from no-wave jazz, to art rock and more non-conventional styles. So, when Marco moved to Brussels from Italy, it felt quite natural to do something together. They could have started writing songs, but eventually they preferred to start with “something completely different”.

Emiliano explains, “They call it non-idiomatic free improvisation. We don’t agree 100% with the definition, it’s a philosophical quarrel, but that is what we do. We are both improvisers, inspired by free-form music and wanted to perform together this way. The album is documenting an excerpt from two recording sessions on cold mornings in March and May 2019 in Brussels, at Monty Studio. Two condenser microphones in the room plus a dynamic one pointed on a twin reverb, to capture the sound of us on prepared acoustic and jazz guitars, baglama, violin and objects found in the studio. No overdubs, no post-production, a rough mixing and a transparent pre-mastering. The beauty of the moment without pre-ordered languages to fit into, not against but beyond rules.”

Watch the promotional video:
“We took a walk through Matonge, the Congolese neighbourhood of Brussels, and had fun mixing (us Italians), with those picturesque African vibes on a cold northern European afternoon, last October. That’s the joy of living in an open city like Brussels.”

Marco says, “We have decided to release this material outside of any self-indulgent snobbery, we just decided to give something to the listeners so they could satisfy their possible curiosity. We liked the atmosphere we created, the interplay and the amount of chance which helped the development of those four improvisations. We are eager to perform live and have fun with our audience. You may also consider this album as ‘another side of us’. In fact, for instance, we realize now that we didn't sing during the sessions, even though both of us are frontmen. We were so focused on creating the momentum that we forgot rules, roles and habits.”

From Brussels the duo will start presenting the album and performing live on November 30th at seeU, the ephemeral neighbourhood at the old 'Casernes d'Ixelles'.”


Emiliano was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1977. He started playing guitar at 6 and recording his own music at 11. He played and sang jazz, rock and world music with different bands in Italy. In 2005, after settling in Rome, he produced his first solo album “SO_LO” with Rattsburg Records, with good reviews. Since then he started touring Italy with his solo show with guitar, voice and effects. Between 2007/2011, Emiliano toured as The Loop Duo with Adriano Arena, with guitars, voices and live loops, producing an album (THE LOOP DUO/BMA and Rattsburg, 2009). In 2009/2010, he produced a new EP (O.S.T./Rattsburg, 2009) and LP “LIGHT EARS” (Rattsburg 2010). Since 2008 he's been working on the project Nanaue with Matteo Nahum. Between 2011 and 2017 they published 8 singles (Rattsburg Records and Gutenberg Music) and 1 album (Nanaue/Gutenberg Music, 2013) plus 3 recordings for tribute albums of Italian prog label Mellow Records. In 2014 Emiliano moved to Brussels, Belgium where he re-published his seminal album “Small Engines” (2002, Rattsburg) and in 2018 he released “MONTY” (Rattsburg) which received great recognition from the art-rock, prog and jazz reviewers.


Marco Machera is an Italian singer-songwriter. He likes to say: “I don't play music – I make it happen.” He released the debut-album “One Time, Somewhere” in 2012: the recording, a unique melting pot of pop and art rock, won early stamps of approval from the likes of Peter Gabriel bassist Tony Levin and ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett, who praised its “interesting atmospheres and contrasting moods.” His second solo effort, “Dime Novels” (2014), is once again a uniquely fresh take on the pop song formula, and features incredible musicians Pat Mastelotto, Tony Levin, Markus Reuter, among others. A third solo record, “Small Music From Broken Windows,” was released in 2017: an intimate and reflective concept album inspired by “The Outsider,” a short story by H.P. Lovecraft. Since 2014, Marco has also been collaborating with American bassist Julie Slick (from the Adrian Belew Power Trio) and drummer Alessandro Inolti on the EchoTest project. In the ever-evolving and experimental worlds of modern progressive rock and avant garde jazz rock, their free-flowing improvisations and strongly melodic songwriting have combined to help them shape an unique identity and garner a growing reputation for their intriguing and surprising albums and their rare and captivating live shows alike.

To purchase “Emiliano Deferrari, Marco Machera”:
Available for download and streaming on all major digital stores from November 15th

Source: EIN Presswire Launches New Course on Delaware Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Laws

Delaware Drug and Alcohol Workplace Testing Laws Now Available at

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2019 / —, an online training provider operated by Easler Education Inc., announced today that it has launched a new state law course designed to educate individuals and private employers on the relevant workplace drug and alcohol testing laws in the State of Delaware.

The course, which is entitled “Delaware Workplace Drug & Alcohol Testing Laws Training," is available for enrollment on and all of its e-commerce affiliate reselling partner sites immediately.

Andrew Easler, the co-founder of Easler Education Inc, indicates that “particular changes to society’s attitudes regarding Medical Marijuana have led to a massive increase in legislative changes to workplace testing laws across the country. We decided to become a source of reliable information about these changes as they approach on the horizon so that employers can make informed decisions about changes to their policy and so that employees can avoid unwittingly violating their employer’s policies.”

The new course provides private employers and interested employees in Delaware a summary of the current state law as it relates to drug and alcohol testing. The course has been designed for the benefit of both legal and non-legal professionals. In an effort to make this kind of information accessible to non-lawyers, the course is designed to avoid legalese whenever possible and to explain legal terminology when the use of the term is unavoidable.

This course will cover essential topics such as: which type of testing is allowed in Delaware, the benefits and drawbacks of implementing a testing policy including relevant insurance discounts, if applicable, and how to qualify, some of the observed dangers and pitfalls other employers have encountered through relevant case law, and the current status of state marijuana laws and their effects on the implementation of workplace testing programs.

Medical Marijuana became legal in Delaware in 2016, and many employers and employees have found themselves on the wrong side of the statute. Employers have been sued for wrongful termination, and employees have been fired for what they believed to be lawful activity under the Delaware Medical Marijuana Act. The course is expected to benefit a wide range of employers and employees, including, but not limited to:

-Business Owners
-Human Resource Professionals
-Substance Abuse Professionals
-Addiction Counselors
-Safety Officers
-Fleet Supervisors
-Site Supervisors
-Compliance Officers
-Employees of Private Businesses
-Corporate Counsel
-Employment Attorneys

Singer Jennifer Nettles and Artist Alice Mizrachi Rock 53rd Country Music Award Red Carpet

The message on these clothes was heard far beyond the CMA awards Red Carpet

The finished Christian Siriano jacket and train with Mizrachi design

The Christian Sirano pants suit with Mizrachi's enhancements was the buzz of the CMA awards Red Carpet.

Mizrachi’s draft design of the Nettle’s CMA outfit.

The striking design was a breakout hit at thd 53rd annual CMA awards.

Nettles and Mizrachi chose the images to make a bold statement at the CMA awards.

Christian Siriano pants suit sporting Mizrachi art the talk of Country Music Awards Red Carpet

This is a beautiful case of women supporting women across industries, she in the country music world, and I’m in the visual arts world.”

— Alice Mizrachi

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2019 / — The Bronx, NY – Nov. 14, 2019 – Singer Jennifer Nettles made a bold statement at Wednesday night’s Country Music Awards, with a big assist from artist Alice Mizrachi.
Nettles, a presenter and performer at the 53rd Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, hit the red carpet wearing an elegant white pants suit trailing an oversized pink train that she threw open to reveal the message “Play Our F*@#!N Records” under her right arm, and “Please & Thank You!!!” under her right.
The train carried another message on the back – “Equal Play!” atop a classic Mizrachi Earth Mother drawing, with the female symbol underneath, mirroring one of Nettle’s right pants leg.
Nettles’ outfit, by designer Christian Siriano and accented by Mizrachi, called out the male dominated country music radio stations for not playing more records by female artists, and in that way limiting their exposure and income.
The statement was heard, loud and clear.
“Jennifer Nettles Is A Boss In ‘Equal Pay’ Power Suit On 2019 CMA Awards Red Carpet,” read the Billboard headline.
“Jennifer Nettles Calls On Industry to Play Women’s ‘F-ing’ Records With Statement Outfit at CMA Awards,” Bonnie Fuller wrote in her Hollywood Life column.
In an article praising Nettles’ outfit, People Magazine cited a recent study by Dr. Stacy L. Smith and the USA Annenberg Inclusion Initiative that between 2014 and 2018 only 16 percent of the top 500 country songs were by women.
Studies show that more radio airtime can increase sales, even for those songs that are not instant hits.
“This is a beautiful case of women supporting women across industries, she in the country music world, and I’m in the visual arts world,” Mizrachi said. “When I researched her I found that our vision is aligned.”
Nettle’s called Mizrachi a week before the event. Though they have never met, Mizrachi said Nettles told her she knew Mizrachi was a big advocate for women in the arts.
Nettles told the artist Mizrachi she had followed Mizrachi’s work empowering women in the arts. “She said she has been a fan of my work and enjoyed my focus on the positive action rather than just complaining about it.”
Now Nettles wanted Mizrachi to help her create an outfit for country music’s big night that would “make a statement.”
“She wanted the train so she could throw it open on the red carpet,” Mizrachi said. “She wanted the back to say ‘Equal Play’ to request a call to action to the industry, to tell country music executives we want you guys to play our records equally, because women in country music are underrepresented on many levels.”
The outfit arrived on Saturday and Mizrachi worked on it for three days and shipped it back
The rest is CMA history.
“I love it,” Mizrachi said of the project. “This is a beautiful case of women supporting women across industries. She is in the country music world, I’m in this art world where I’m working in public spaces. Here she is following me over the years and saying I love her vibe, I want to someday work with her, and finding a way where she can match her vision of making a statement with my art, even though they are from two different worlds.
“It’s fabulous!” Mizrachi said. “Here we are, two women who are clamoring positive messages to get out voices heard and uplift other young women, working toward the same goal in different industries and really appreciating each other for doing that work.
“It opens my world to her world and cross pollinates our work in industries where oftentimes women are not given access,” Mizrachi said.
“How brilliant is that!”
