Singer/Songwriter Ali B Releases Newest Single “Strangers In Love”

With Powerfully Soothing Vocals, The Hypnotic Dance Track Reminiscent of Today’s Biggest EDM Stars From Avicii to David Guetta Brings the Rising Star to New Heights



October, 2017 (Long Island, NY) – With an incredible year having graced stages big and small from New York City to Long Island, performing “God Bless America” for Mets fans at Citi Field, and releasing her single and video “Kiss Me Goodbye” – Singer/Songwriter Alison Berke a.k.a. “Ali B” is back with “Strangers In Love”! Working once again with The Loft Sound Studio producers Donnie Klang and Matthew Laporte, their latest EDM-pop collaboration pairs intimately emotional lyrics with stellar music production.


“Ali B’s vocals shine the brightest on this single…the synthesizers and vocals unite to make something special, showcasing her considerable range” – NeuFutur Magazine


From the subtle instrumental tones and vocal layering that truly bring out her undoubtedly stellar range as well as songwriting ability, “Strangers In Love” is a passionate ballad of longing and devotion. And with the accompanying music video set to be released in the coming weeks, it’s sure to bring a powerful visual component to the deeply inspired track.



LISTEN: Ali B “Strangers In Love” via Spotify


Alison Berke grew up in the bustling concrete jungle of New York City, known for its thriving music community and inspiring so many young talents of today. Later moving to Long Island, she used that inspiration – turning it towards her love for music and already thriving vocal ability.


Inspired by some of today’s biggest pop music sensations from Selena Gomez to Ariana Grande, she began performing cover songs and later writing her own original music with the help of Klang from MTV’s “Making The Band 4” and Artist / Engineer LaPorte.


Noting some of her favorite experiences on her musical journey thus far, Berke says “Every new experience is my favorite, and all of the steps in this journey mean I’m one step closer to reaching my goals”.


Having already gained so much success on her road to continued music development as an artist, songwriter, and performer – Ali advises other young talents like herself to strive for greatness, saying they should never give up, and adding “nothing is impossible, if you find something you love go out there and give it all you got!”.


With an inspired devotion to her craft and incredibly talented production team, it seems only the sky’s the limit for the young star. And with “Strangers In Love” available now along with the soon-to-be-released music video, there’s plenty more to come!

Ian Erix Packs Upbeat Energy and Inspiration Into New Hit “Footprints In the Sand”

World Renowned Pop Singer-Songwriter Continues to Empower Fans New and Old, Building His “Mutt Army” and Shaking Up The Music World



October, 2017 (Long Island, NY) – In an age where talent, individuality, and passion are of utmost importance in becoming a breakout star in entertainment, Ian Erix is certainly a cut above the rest. Recently touring the globe from the UK to Japan to Indonesia, to New Zealand and almost everywhere in between Ian brings with him an empowering and inspiring persona and message wherever he goes that fans around the world seem to connect to deeply.  As the leader of his fandom called the “Mutt Army” Ian has become a champion to underdogs, known for speaking out against social injustices and lifting spirits.  The lyrics of his newest single “Footprints In the Sand” encourage listeners to live their lives to the very fullest and the song ushers in an excitement for what’s to come when Ian’s Full Length Album drops later this year!


With his platform sneakers, multicolored hair and trademark sunglasses, you won’t confuse Ian Erix with anybody else on the music scene right now. His eccentric sense of style along with his colorful, lovable and outspoken personality are talking piece second only to his music, an extremely catchy electro pop hybrid of sound, often laced with quirky or stirring lyrics expertly crafted by Erix himself, who personally writes each of his songs.

Erix began his career in the form of a DJ/MC at the tender age of 9 and cut his teeth in his early teen years at Radio Disney and with Lou Pearlman’s infamous TransContinental Records. Those familiar with the earlier works that first catapulted him into the international spotlight, racked up millions of plays online and landed him on several Top 10 charts on 3 continents will surely recognize some signature elements of his original pop-punk sound but will likely also  appreciate the musical evolution Erix has undergone moving into the mainstream pop world in the process of making his hotly anticipated record “Renegade” which is expected to bow worldwide in the coming months.


WATCH: Ian Erix – Footrprints in the Sand (Lyric Video)


“Gotta Watch Out Cause We’re All On A Countdown // Don’t Wanna Wait Around To See It Gone Too Soon // At Any Time Could Be Headed For A Breakdown // Because The Tide’s Under The Control of the Moon”


“Gotta Grab It By the Strands, We’re All Footprints In the Sand”


Ian toured extensively through 2016-2017 around UK, Europe, Asia and Australia most recently having played at the pre-show for Justin Bieber’s Purpose tour in India. “Footprints In The Sand” broke into Top20 Dance Charts on radio in Japan this summer and peaked at #5 there.  A mashup of Ian’s song with David Guetta also began making some noise worldwide throughout the summer of 2017 and Ian appeared in the Top 100 in numerous charts across Europe even landing a #1 streaming chart position on Spotify in the Czech Republic, Latvia and Greece during his tour there in August.  “Footprints In The Sand” is currently gaining traction on pop radio in America having been added to regular rotation on numerous Mediabase/Nielsen-BDS Mainstream Top 40 stations around the country including iHeart radio.


With the song’s growing success and fans eagerly awaiting the full-length album, there’s a ton more in store for this artist as he continues to grow his fanbase worldwide!
