Jimmy Bralower Productions Taking Artist First Approach with  The A&R Department

With the Days of Record Label Deals As The Ultimate Goal Dwindling- the Producer, Mixer, and Former VP of A&R at Atlantic Records Offers Artists / Bands / Songwriters / Musicians

Guidance On Developing Their Careers

 

 

May, 2017 (Roslyn Heights, NY) — While true artist development may be a lost art these days, recording artists looking for a creative edge in today’s competitive marketplace now have a new option in their career development toolbox… Jimmy Bralower’s A&R Department.

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 Jimmy 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.

While rolling out the A&R Department, he currently has three songwriting collaborations on the new Robert Randolph & The Family Band albumGot Soul”, including the new single “Shake It”. He is preparing an EP release on his own Dynotone Records, including the last studio recording of the legendary Phoebe Snow and continues to take on new production and mixing clients.

Edan Archer A Shot at the Big Time: Florida Songwriter Competes to Bring Her Brand of Americana to Red Rocks’ Grand Stage

Edan Archer A Shot at the Big Time: Florida Songwriter Competes to Bring Her Brand of Americana to Red Rocks’ Grand Stage

The Florida-Based Star packs “Gorgeous, Harmony-Laden Country Ballads Alongside Smoky Dive-Bar Riffs” As She Vies For a Chance To Sing For the Masses and Plans Follow-Up to 2016’s “Cruel Mother” EP

 

 

May, 2017 (Gainesville, FL) — Following the release of 2016’s EP “Cruel Mother”, whose title track was named in the “Best Songs of 2016” by the Miami New Times,  singer-songwriter Edan Archer has hit the ground running in 2017 with shows from Miami to Nashville! But the rising star, who’s music has been described as “a Southern Gothic fever dream”, seems to have a ton more in store. She was chosen as one of 6 artists across the country to compete in Southwest Airlines’ Live@35 series where musicians perform during commercial plane flights at 35,000 feet! She’s currently competing with the other participants for a shot to play songs from her new, up-coming record at  Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. She’s announcing new live performances up the East Coast and heading into the studio for the follow up to Cruel Mother.

 

Edan Archer’s introduction to music started at a very early age, in her hometown of Gainesville, Florida. She and her sisters (known as the Howlin’ Cooks) would accompany their parents to church choir, as well as to local picking parties where they sang harmonies to folk classics from Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan and traditional Appalachian murder ballads like the EP’s title track “Cruel Mother”. The family group soon graduated to playing music festivals throughout northern Florida before she was 10.

 

WATCH: Edan Archer “Cruel Mother” Official Video

 

With a voice that has “the duality of moonshine and honey”, Archer can get gritty with dirty, down-home rock, or cast a spell with an intimate, confessional ballad. Her guitar style stays true to the alt-folk genre with intricate finger picking, alternate tunings, and rich effects.

 

Her latest EP, 2016’s “Cruel Mother”, co-produced by Archer and Fernando Perdomo (Jakob Dylan, Emitt Rhodes, Andy Pratt), offers 5 lushly arranged songs, with Southern soul and just a bit of rock edge. The album’s songs have been featured on globally syndicated Blues and Roots Radio, The Secret Garden and Wee Dan’s Hoose radio shows, as well as Miami’s WLRN and Gainesville’s WGOT.

As she dives head-first back into the roots music she loves, Archer has also set up a GoFundMe Page in support of her newest album and is hoping her  fans can chip in saying: “I’m reaching out to friends and fans in case anyone would like to contribute to the record. Any amount will help, and will contribute to studio time, making merch, printing a limited edition vinyl, and paying musicians”.

 

With so much in store for this rootsy, country and folk star with a rock and grunge tinge, keep an eye out for her Live@35 contest entry, and NEW MUSIC in 2017!

Recent Trip to NYC Saw the Young Star Meet with Rapper Purhythm, Be Interviewed by Teen Kids News and American Girl’s Brynn Casey, and More

 

 

May, 2017 (New York, NY) — After touching down in New York early last week for a media blitz that included interviews and performances with Teen Kids News and American Girl’s Brynn Casey, meeting with child prodigy/singer/songwriter/rapper Sparsh Shah (A.K.A. “Purythm”), and attending the TJ Martell Foundation’s Women of Influence Awards at the Plaza Hotel- Singer and YouTube star Merideth Grace Puckett seems to have only broken the surface of 2017!

 

Sitting down with Teen Kids News the young star spoke on everything from her excitement at becoming a YouTube sensation to her plans for the future, even performing one of her newest singles! Meeting with Sparsh Shah, the two discussed their music and collaboration for an upcoming single. And after chatting it up with American Girl #TeamAGLife’s Brynn Casey, Merideth even walked the red carpet along with celebs like Susan Lucci and and Alison Arngrim at the 2017 Women of Influence Awards which honored “extraordinary women who have pushed boundaries by achieving outstanding goals in business, work, family, home, and health while inspiring women around the globe to live their dreams.”

More About Merideth Grace Puckett:

 

With a poise that belies her age, the newcomer is generating a booming buzz that has people talking about the little girl with the big voice. At only 13 years old, Merideth sings with an emotion people twice her age can rarely articulate in a song. The Paris, TX native’s soulful vocals transport a listener to another world, so it’s no surprise that top producers and managers are clamoring to work with her.

 

The Huffington Post wrote, “Look out, Music City. Pretty soon, you might have another incredible voice on your hands” and they couldn’t be more on the money. When a friend recorded Meredith singing Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” in the kitchen, she wasn’t expecting to gain over 20-million views. “I was shocked! I was expecting maybe 100 people to hear me sing; we went to sleep that night and it was already at 11,000 views. It was amazing!”. As she develops as an artist, Merideth is also becoming a fan favorite, building a strong teen following on social media. “It’s really cool. I like to write back to the people who comment on what I post, and I try to put up a new video on YouTube every few weeks. It’s hard for me to believe I get to do this, it’s like living in a dream.”

 

With so much more to come, it would be wise to keep an eye out for what’s next to come from Merideth Grace Puckett!

Boy Band Trio Forever In Your Mind Continue to Take the World By Storm with New Singles, Live Dates, and MORE

From Disney Music Group’s Hollywood Records Comes New Music From the Band that “Has the Potential to Take Over the Boy Band Scene That’s Wide Open For the Taking”

 

 

In the midst of the prolonged void of a true Boy Band with not only the aesthetic qualities but true musical talent that has long been absent since the demise of One Direction (and furthermore the true 90’s boom of NYSYNC, 98 Degrees, the Backstreet Boys etc.), many have stepped up to the plate but failed to deliver the perfect combination. That certainly changed when Liam Attridge, Ricky Garcia and Emery Kelly — that band of brothers collectively known as Forever in Your Mind–hit the ground running with the release of their 2016 self-titled EP. And now, with Summer just around the corner, they’ve released their new new double-A-side Hollywood Records single, “Smooth” and “Missing”!

 

Produced by Dustin Atlas, Eau Noir and Josh Gudwin (Justin Bieber, Bebe Rexha), and co-written by the band, the songs pair up well, tackling the mysteries of a relationship on the edge. Sporting a serpentine groove and sleek blues riff, “Smooth” dissects the competitive nature of love, while the equally sophisticated “Missing,” with its wailing harmonies, laments a relationship fractured beyond repair (“All that remains is my broken faith”).

 

The two tracks “reflect real emotions everyone feels,” notes Liam. “We wanted to be as real as possible, because we’re writing in a more mature frame of mind.” Indeed, the two tracks reveal a galloping musical maturity certain to impress old FIYM fans and lock down countless new ones.

 

WATCH: FIYM “Smooth” Official Video

 

To trace the band’s origins, head east to Long Island, N.Y., where cousins Liam and Emery grew up. In 2013, Emery auditioned for TV’s “X Factor,” where he met Ricky, a Texas transplant living in Los Angeles. The two became friends, and formed Forever in Your Mind, made a trio when Liam joined them in L.A. As the band’s career picked up speed, they created their 2016 debut EP, which featured the hit singles “Hurricane” and “Compass.” spending 19 weeks on Billboard’s Next Big Sound Chart, leading to a string of milestones for the band.

 

They performed for the nation on “Good Morning America,” and also embarked on a 2016 cross-country winter tour with fellow Hollywood Records artist Olivia Holt.

 

On the acting front, Ricky played Naldo throughout the two-season run of the Disney Channel original series “Best Friends Whenever,” and he soon co-stars in “Bigger Fatter Liar,” the long-awaited big screen sequel to the 2000 teen comedy classic, “Big Fat Liar.” FIYM’s lead role in Disney Channel’s “Road to the Roxy” led to a sold-out 2016 headline gig at L.A.’s famed Roxy nightclub last summer. The band presented at the Radio Disney Music Awards, as well as participated in Flo Rida’s opening number at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards.

 

 

On social media, the band has made a major impact, with a combined reach of more than 2 million, and online views of their videos nearing 30 million. And wherever they go, FIYM draws attention for their style. GQ, Pret-a-Reporter and other fashionistas have given the band props for their red carpet successes.

 

Coming up, FIYM returns to the studio to record more tracks. None can yet say what sort of songs they will come up with, but they know for sure the music will reflect their bolder and more soulful direction.

 

“It’s instinct for us now,” says Emery. “We’re just riding this awesome journey together.”

 

Upcoming Tour Dates:

 

Saturday, 6/24Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, Corfu, NY

Brooklyn Glam Punk Outfit j and the 9s Set to Release New Single “Love to Be”

“Top 45 Up and Coming Rock Band of 2017”, “Top 10 Most Memorable Act of Launch 2017” and One of SXSW’s “7 Acts You Need to Know Now” –

Noted as “a powerhouse of raw, uninhibited rock with the swagger to back it up”, Brooklyn-based outfit j and the 9s have certainly hit the ground running in 2017! With their newest single and video “Love to Be” set to be released Tuesday, May 16th, they’ll be following it up with the full release of their EP “THE TERRIBLE TWOS” on Friday, June 16th!

Emerging from Brooklyn, j and the 9s inimitable sound is artistic, original, and recurrently referred to as forceful. Critics have compared their music to a mix of Led Zeppelin, Lady Gaga and Janis Joplin, as it is difficult to pinpoint the band’s complex and idiosyncratic sound in any one comparison. A powerhouse of raw, uninhibited rock–with the swagger to back it up–j and the 9s have been juxtaposed with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Runaways, yet describe themselves as Joan Jett mixed with The Stooges. The band’s uniqueness is equally complemented by j’s unlikely yet incredibly bluesy flute playing. Yes, she plays the flute…like an angel!

 

 

Equipped with heavy, raw grooves, glitter and wigs, j and the 9s put on a powerful, playful show that is certain to steal your attention and possibly your hearing. The band tours globally- having touched down in Korea, Russia and North America, and they’ve also played backup for Guns and Roses own Bumblefoot along with prowling the stages of Warped Tour, CBGB Fest, SXSW, and NYC venues like The Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall, Brooklyn Bowl, Le Poisson Rouge, Gramercy Theatre and The Mercury Lounge!

 

“Sometimes we forget music is supposed to be fun. Then a band like j and the 9s comes along and reminds us that music is supposed to fun. That’s not to say you shouldn’t take them seriously, because you should. Their sound is a wild mix of punk, glam, and rock and roll. Why are they on our list? They’re fun. They rock hard. j9 plays the flute. What else do you need in a band?”

 

Those who know the band well–along with those who are attending one of their concerts for the very first time–can acknowledge that the band is a beast – a very hungry, energetic beast that wants to feed off of [the crowd’s] energy. The band has even openly admitted this themselves…Basically, they want people to come out to their shows. They want to blow your minds with their music…and that they do.

 

 

Look for the fast approaching release of j and the 9s latest single “Love to Be,” Tuesday, May 16th along with its trippy, grungy, good time music video. Moreso, mark down the release of their brand new EP, “THE TERRIBLE TWOS,” set to drop Friday, June 16th and keep an eye out for upcoming tour dates and festivals!
