Dic 19 2012, 19:12 di musicdishWith a catchy, addictive tune, Barbara Kiss' "Catch Me" ( http://youtu.be/T9xOUQZg-2U ) blends the best of pop rock and alternative and can easily become the next pop hit. The single's simple lyrics complements Kiss' innocent declaration of love. Her soft voice adds to the foot-tapping guitar rifts and is almost reminiscent of an 80s or 90s pop song, inspiring a great deal of nostalgia. The video features Kiss in black and white back-drops and her wardrobe widely varies. The transitions between a snowy outfit and a gothic get-up highlights the bitter sweet dichotomy of teenage love. The highly singable melody and fun video makes this a very enjoyable song.
Dic 16 2012, 19:52 di musicdishFrancis Bowie’s song and video “Art Zoo” ( http://youtu.be/b_TJWgl7_8s ) is an up tempo pop rock track that is definitely a song you’ll want to play when you’re in the mood for having a good time. Catchy, cool, and fun, the video begins in black and white, showing a young lady playing with several items with a twist of magic, as well as the lead singer in a vocal performance of the song. The video is played at a fast pace, which is in keeping with the “fun and frolicking” nature of the song. Masks, makeup, wardrobe changes, and all things “different” are the hallmark of the video. The video changes to color about halfway through, but never loses its pace or creativity. It’s all about fun. Do you feel it like I do? I bet you will!! http://francisbowie.com
Dic 5 2012, 23:11 di musicdishSteve Cooke's "Working For The USA" ( http://youtu.be/M0YcAYsSZZ0 ) is listed as Americana Rock, but I also hear some southern rock coming hard like the Bruce Springsteen sound. Cooke sings a very inspiring song about the USA and the working class who are the backbone of this great nation. He's a very good singer with a strong a passionate style and a mighty stage presence on this video. Shot in black and white, the video is full of color and life from Cooke and his group. The song is strong, uplifting, empowering, and is one that can touch all the workers of the USA. With a hard driving sound that slows at times to allow a sweet harmony to shine, "Working For The USA" is a song that can't and won't be contained. It's explosive and powerful, and very timely. Cooke really delivers the goods on this one. Both lyrically and musically solid, the song and video are highly inspirational and entertaining, as well as being thought provoking. The video is full of shots of real American people working and the intended connection is very well made. This is very high quality production with outstanding performances from Cooke and his Band. It's an easy sing along song, while its patriotic theme carries a positive message to bring hope, work and happiness back to America's people. http://www.steve-cooke.com

But with an extended summer season of triple-digit heat and the beach on everyone's mind, 'Beach Anthem' seemed to be the natural choice. According to Sapphire, one of the singers for Millennium, "Beach Anthem is a tribute to beachgoers all around the world, whether on Venice Beach or the coast of Nice!"
Millennium consists of Stryker, composer, producer and singer for the group, K-King, Sapphire and Adonis- a colorful group of characters on the road to success, beginning with their new single 'Beach Anthem'. The song will soon hit airwaves across the nation and a regional tour is also in the works. Within a few short months, don't be surprised if Beach Anthem becomes the chorus sung over barbeque and bonfire pits across the globe.

Sunshine, good vibes and uplifting music are southern California staples, and Renelle Roxy, hailing from San Diego, delivers them in spades. From the sultry, 60's R&B inspired, "Waves," to the lighthearted summertime jam, "Somewhere,"Renelle Roxy makes creative use of her ukulele and her dynamic vocal quality. She will draw you in with her sweet sundrenched music and keep you there with her expertly executed belly-dancing!
"These songs were written on the beach," Roxy says of her writing process. "I was very considerate of the lyrics and rhythms to steer the final product. Collaboration in the studio and experimenting on different sounds allowed that to finalize perfectly."
Roxy worked with producer Nathan Rupp to build a collection of songs that highlight her ability to write in many different styles while maintaining a sound that is decidedly her own.
"The raw songs came in as ukulele and vocals, the arrangements grew organically and before we knew it, we'd have a good groove and something that felt very solid," Rupp reflects on working with Roxy in the studio.
An east coast transplant, Roxy has been actively involved in music and dance since she was a young girl. She is an accomplished belly-dancer and incorporates both the freedom of expression and discipline inherent in dance, into her musical endeavors.
The self-titled Renelle Roxy EP is available on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and every digital music retailer.
