The Band Gets Ready to Bring Back More Old School Blues Rock’n Soul with Their Latest LP Since 2015’s “Wish For What You Want”

Having surpassed their goal following a successful PledgeMusic Campaign, the Billy Walton Band have just unleashed their newest LP “Soul of a Man” Friday, 1/12! As they wrap up the remaining U.S. Tour dates before heading across the pond performing in the U.K. through the start of the year along with stops in their home state, NC, and PA – the band that continues to celebrate the famed NJ musical tradition will hit the ground running in 2018 as they celebrate their 10 Year Anniversary!

There was a time when the Jersey Shore represented the best in American entertainment. Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, the Rat Pack, Dick Clark, Chubby Checker, they all made stops on the Jersey Shore. Tony Mart’s was the club Levon Helm was playing when Dylan called. Of course we all know what happened in Asbury Park. The town, ravaged by riots in the late 60’s, became a melting pot of musical experimentation. Late night jams that ended when the sun came up were the norm. Bruce Springsteen & Southside Johnny were the two acts that made their way to an international stage from these humble beginnings.

For decades musicians have come and gone, always hoping to make a living and pursue a dream. Billy Walton is no different. Billy’s proving ground was Long Beach Island. There he was chaperoned from gig to gig by his Mom, too young to drive around and enter the clubs on his own. He always was up for a jam and looking to learn some tricks. For years Billy spent his time sharpening his skills, developing his stage act until he decided to step up to center stage with the Billy Walton Band.

The band has focused its’ effort in Europe. 13 tours since 2007 have established the group in the fertile British Blues Rock scene. In 2010 Billy got the call to join in with one of the masters of the Asbury Park sound, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. For years Billy toured with the Jukes. Most people don’t know that the creative force behind Southside was none other than Little Steven. A highpoint in Billy’s tenure with the Jukes was when they recorded a live version of Southside’s most acclaimed release, Hearts of Stone, with Little Steven.

Good things have been happening to the Billy Walton Band. The band signed to Vizztone Records for the release of “Wish For What You Want” in 2015 – produced by Tony Braunagel, the award winning BMA producer and current Eric Burdon drummer, this batch of songs will certainly take the band to the next level!

You can say Bruce Springsteen is a singer songwriter fronting an old-school rock n soul band. Southside Johnny is a soul singer fronting an old-school rock n soul band. Billy Walton is the guitar hero fronting the old-school rock n soul band. The horns are the common thread!

Now, as they’ve released “Soul of a Man” and continue touring throughout the U.S. and U.K., you’ll have plenty of reasons to check out their new music and see why fans worldwide can’t get enough the Billy Walton Band!

pasted image 0 (20)

With a New Year almost beginning, and on the heels of her latest release “Affection” (now available via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon & more), NYC based Singer/Songwriter Annamaria is getting ready to hit the ground running as she continues to conquer the NYC music scene and beyond!

The city has breathed new life, and taking center stage with poise beyond her years is 17yr old Annamaria!

The Singer/Songwriter has been honing her craft for as long as she can remember, saying “I always listened to music and wondered what my own words would sound like along with it. One day I finally sang and played along with a song on the radio…and I was hooked!

Working with Emmy Award-winning producer/singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eren Cannata (son of Billy Joel saxophonist Richie Cannata), she has been writing and producing music – all original, radio-ready, and all immediately viable. Pairing the two was not coincidental, but a canny move by the young talent’s manager – John Casale. “I wanted a producer who’d be sensitive to Annamaria’s music and serve it well. Richie was the one, his experience and taste shows in every note.” Adds Cannata, “Eren and Annamaria have worked so well together. She’s the most prolific young artist we have worked with in years. She is on her way to great success in this industry!”.

With her latest track “Affection”, she’s begun sending out to the world her own brand of fresh new R&B and Soul laden pop music with a distinctly powerful vocal edge. “Kiss me, love me, like no one’s in the room // You miss me, you want me, then show me you do // Need your love and attention, all your affection” sings Annamaria in the sleek and passionate track the brings her smooth vocal tones to the forefront over a subtle yet powerful backing track.

Though she lists her favorite artists as Tori Kelly, Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, Demi Lovato, and Christina Aguilera – her own music remains truly original. And with a full record release imminent along with groundwork being laid for her first tour, it won’t be long until Annamaria’s music is everywhere!

GRAMMY Winning Producer/Mixer and Former Atlantic Records VP Jimmy Bralower Brings Artist First Approach with “The A&R Department”

Having Worked With The Likes of Major Artists From Taylor Swift to Peter Gabriel, Madonna and MORE – Producer, Mixer, and Former VP of A&R at Atlantic Records Offers Artists / Bands / Songwriters / Musicians

A Myriad of Experience to Guide Their Careers Through New Production Department

 

 

December, 2017 (Roslyn Heights, NY) — As many artist’s and band’s true development may have become a lost art in this modern age, those looking for further direction and a creative edge in today’s competitive marketplace now have a new option in their career development toolbox… Jimmy Bralower’s A&R Department.

Jimmy Bralower has been a secret weapon for labels, artists, producers and songwriters for over 30 years. As a producer, studio musician, arranger and mixer, he’s got 30 Top Ten Singles and over 80 Gold & Platinum records to his credit. And now, with the addition of the A&R Department he is expanding Jimmy Bralower Productions, his production & mixing business to include consulting, coaching, mentoring and artist development.

 

“I’ve been mixing a lot of records and young artists today are asking all kinds of questions, many of which should’ve been brought up before they started recording. Everybody is out on their own, there’s no more label commitment to talent development. There are a lot of services today that are ready to market & promote once your recording is finished, but really nothing out there preparing artists to make smart choices in the studio, for their career & their music. We’re offering professional A&R insight without having to get the record deal.”

 

And that’s where Bralower’s unique credentials come in. He started out as a drummer, signing to Columbia Records with his first band when he was 14. Over the years, he has achieved chart success as a session musician, arranger, producer, writer, mixer, remixer and VP of A&R at Atlantic Records. Bralower says “I’ve worked on both sides of the glass in the studio and been on both sides of the desk in the office. I’ve seen it from every angle.”

 

 

10 #1 RECORDS

30 TOP TEN SINGLES

35 TOP TEN ALBUMS

While rolling out the A&R Department, he currently has three songwriting collaborations on the new Robert Randolph & The Family Band album “Got Soul”, including the new single “Shake It”.
