Emily Weiss Emerges “From Beyond the Beaten Path” with Unique Antiques in Eastport

Emily Weiss Emerges “From Beyond the Beaten Path” with Unique Antiques in Eastport

The Eclectic Boutique Brings Together Long Islanders with a Passion for Discovering Unknown Treasures 

From Beyond the Beaten Path, located at 495 Main St. Eastport, New York has been bringing in a mix of new and vintage one of a kind items to discerning residents with penchant for rare, exclusive and uncommon hidden gems for over 25 years. 

For the holiday season they are offering a 50% discount on selected merchandise.

Emily’s passion for antiques, and the unknown, began when she was just 14 years old. “The most exciting part of antiquing for me was not only meeting the eccentric and interesting antique dealers along the way, but mainly the possibility of finding something I had never seen before”. 

After collecting for many years and managing other stores, she opened Beyond the Beaten Path in Eastport, the Gateway to the Hamptons. For 25 years, the shop has been one of the best kept secrets on the East End of Long Island. It’s been a secret haunt for many stylists, collectors and top designers such as Ralph Lauren, Betsey Johnson, and more. For well over a decade, they rented (and sold) fabulous vintage pieces from their extensive collection to Ralph Lauren’s company. From Beyond the Beaten Path  reproduced or got inspiration from vintage pieces for Ralph Lauren’s top line, “The Collection”. The stores’ vintage clothing has also been sold at NYC Boutiques in Soho, as well as uptown at actress Phoebe Cates’ store, Blue Tree.

From Beyond the Beaten Path has evolved from an Antique store to an Eclectic Boutique, a mix of new and vintage, constantly reinventing itself. Their collection ranges from Home Furnishings, including Lighting and Accessories to Jewelry, Distinctive Gifts, Vintage Clothing and beyond. Many of their jewelry pieces are one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted and reinvented from vintage parts, as are some of the tables, lighting and accessories. They also offer a custom service for their clientele to assist with reinventing and designing their vintage jewelry to make it more up-to-date. Shipments arrive weekly, with fabulous new merchandise.

Jesse Eplan Blazes into High Gear with Latest Video for his Track “Bakwoods”

Jesse Eplan Blazes into High Gear with Latest Video for his Track “Bakwoods”

The Five Tool Trap/Hip-Hop/R&B Singer-Songwriter-Performer-Producer-Beatmaker Drops Dank New Video for his Homage Tune to Women and Blunts

 

Los Angeles, CA (Sept, 2019) — Fast rising hip hop star Jesse Eplan just dropped the smoking new video for his well received slow dance worthy anthem “Bakwoods”, which was released on all the major services earlier this year. The popping track details Jesse’s love and respect for one special woman, and for the recreational activities he enjoys doing only with her; regardless of the endless line of shortys looking to get with him and his green sticky leaf.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR BAKWOODS HERE: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnf3ipfWZFw 

 

After his move to Los Angeles in 2018, Eplan has continued adding to his ever growing musical palette, with strong songs and new fire beats coming seemingly every week. A New York native, Jesse broke major ground with the release of his first two major LP’s – 2017’s “Trap Harmony” and 2018’s “Purple Wave“, and the Trap and Hip-Hop world took MAJOR notice of the rising young star through his collaborations with like minded artists like Famous Dex (A$AP Rocky, Lil Pump) and Kontraversy (Grafh, LouGotCash), but it seems we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg that is Jesse Eplan.

 

LISTEN TO BAKWOODS ON SPOTIFY HERE:

https://open.spotify.com/track/7y7S0JDTvHygmaG5zKUc7W 

 

With his major influences ranging from artists like Future to Lil Uzi Vert, Chris Brown, Smokepurpp, MadeinTYO and Travis Scott – Eplan has taken their flow, hooks, beat selection, and more into account when creating his own music. Geography has also had a major impact – as a NY native, Eplan took what he learned from the ever growing R&B, Hip-Hop, and Trap scene throughout NYC and Long Island and relocated to Tampa, FL where he attended the University of Tampa. This added yet another dynamic to his creativity, says Jesse “Being in Tampa gave me new elements of a more tropical sound to add to my music. From its overall Summer vibes to the scenery, it really spoke to me along with being able to meet new artists, producers, videographers and entrepreneurs to learn from and collaborate with”. This is evident in “Purple Wave”, which he categorizes as very different from the rap music of today’s generation. With tracks like “Cannon” (Feat. Kontraversy) and “Lost Time” he goes from hardened undertones to giving himself a chance to do some soulful singing. “I listen to these tracks and its very magical” he says, “The more people I ask, the more feedback I get on how expansive the album is and how everyone seems to have their own favorite track”.

The Peter Ulrich Collaboration Set to Release New Record “Final Reflections”

The Peter Ulrich Collaboration Set to Release New Record “Final Reflections”

Renowned Member of Seminal Art Rock Band Dead Can Dance Continues to Put Out Intricate, Sophisticated Material As the Release of Final Reflections Completes The Painted Caravan Trilogy

The Peter Ulrich Collaboration’s “Final Reflections”; the final chapter in the well received The Painted Caravan Trilogy, will be available for streaming and purchase on all the major services starting December 3rd, 2019 with an expected single and video for the lead track “Artificial Man” set to drop in the coming weeks.

As a special thanks to Collaboration fans, from September 16th until November 5th, the new album Final Reflections – along with the entire Painted Caravan Trilogy – will be available on a pre order basis at a special discounted rate through AIS Records; which is distributing Final Reflections and The Painted Caravan Trilogy under an exclusive license from City Canyons. Stayed tuned for a link for this very special discount with access to the entire Trilogy at one convenient location.

The Peter Ulrich Collaboration is a collaboration helmed by Peter Ulrich, former percussionist for the iconic Dead Can Dance, the brilliantly innovative band that music historian Ian McFarlane described as world music that “constructed soundscapes of mesmerizing grandeur and solemn beauty… with African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chants, Middle-Eastern mantras and art-rock”. Ulrich met Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard, the founders and cornerstones of Dead Can Dance, in London in 1982 and joined the band on drums and percussion. After leaving DCD and after releasing a string of critically acclaimed releases as a solo artist, Peter’s next big step was The Peter Ulrich Collaboration.

The Collaboration is the brainchild of Ulrich and Trebor “Big T” Lloyd of City Canyons Productions as producer and a principal collaborator. The Collaboration mixes folk rock, world rock, art rock and psychedelic music with a world view that encompasses alternative history, fictional universes, Steampunk, and Goth, and recalls the exquisitely crafted soundscapes of Dead Can Dance. The group features songwriting by Ulrich, Lloyd, and New York songwriters Anne Husick, Sara Wendt and Kathy Sheppard among others with vocals by David Steele, Wendt, Ulrich, Jen Elliott, Shane Chapman, Stephanie Linn, Timothy Dark and other bright American and English talents. The vocalists are backed by a crackerjack band playing rock, post-rock, world and folk influenced music. After the release of two albums, thrilled New York Collaboration fans were were treated to a live performance by the band at Manhattan’s famous Webster Hall in 2015. Reviews for the first two albums were little short of spectacular:

“A rich and song-filled showcase”—RollingStone. com

 

“Grand mix of folk and world music”—Modern Drummer

 

“Riveting and intriguing”—Popdose

 

“A collaboration to be cherished”—The Independent

 

“Colorful and enjoyable record”—All Music Guide

Now following up their well received second effort Tempus Fugitives, about which Entertainment UK proclaimed “Sensuous wafting flights of ethereal fancy and finely-honed but never overstated lyrics are [Ulrich’s] forte , and after the first album in the trilogy The Painted Caravan made waves with its release as “another fine record that has been described as The Great Missing West Coast Album”, The Peter Ulrich Collaboration is delighted to be able to bring this story to a close, releasing Final Reflections as a worthy and compelling companion piece. 

While Final Reflections is chock full of notable songs, perhaps the most striking single, sung by the richly talented English vocalist David Steele, is Artificial Man; the Collaboration’s chilling look at a dystopian society in which creatures that are part man and part machine are on the verge of rebellion against their human overlords. Here’s a preview of the Artificial Man video with lyrics.

PREVIEW THE VIDEO FOR ARTIFICIAL MAN HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXPq6abYq9U 

LYRICS TO ARTIFICIAL MAN FROM “FINAL REFLECTIONS”:

INTRO

 

Over mortal men I tower

Fearless, full of power

But slave of my makers

Created by dark undertakings

I am their wondrous Adam

Yet I’d like to damn them

To the same empty hell where I am.

 

VERSE ONE

 

Their artificial man 

It’s hollow in my chest 

Where something weighty was 

A heaviness now gone, 

Where once sorrow touched me

A sorrow that is done 

Visited once by joy 

Though now there is none. 

An artificial man. 

 

VERSE TWO

 

Their artificial man 

There’s a hole in my head 

A trace of memories 

Mostly unremembered 

Near gone but not dead

Faint and dying embers

Edited history 

Selective mystery. 

An artificial man. 

 

VERSE THREE

 

Their artificial man 

Empty of all feeling 

But remotely recalling 

A time when I could feel 

Before the supple limbs 

Were cast in subtle steel 

Before love ran through me

Like the rain through a drain 

An artificial man. 

 

OUTRO

 

Created by dark undertakings

I am their wondrous Adam

Yet I’d like to damn them

To the same empty hell where I am.

 

With The Painted Caravan Trilogy now complete, Peter Ulrich brings his colorful Caravan home full speed ahead. All aboard for the final exhilarating trip!

Following up the well received “I Love You”, this bouncy feel good track is a perfect compliment to the traditional summer vibe; you can easily imagine chilling down at the beach or by the pool while soaking in the sun and immersing yourself in the rhythms and sultry vocals being expertly laid down by this rising star.

 

Szandra’s musical influences are rooted in R&B and Euro Pop genres and her own tri-cultural background. Born into a multicultural family, Szandra has been exposed to American, European and Latin-American musical flavors.

Being fluent in three languages (English, Hungarian and Spanish) also has influenced her how she expresses herself both in the field of music and real life. Szandra was born in Los Angeles, CA but currently lives in Sunny Florida. Other than singing and writing lyrics and melodies Szandra loves traveling and spending time on social media. She is mostly active on Instagram and TikTok.

 

SUMMERTIME IS HERE LYRICS

 

Sunny days are here

Smiling you and me

Dancing wild and free

Summer time is here, here, here, here…

 

Party time’s on

Enjoy the sun

It’s gonna be so much fun

So much fun, so much fuuuun

 

Jumping high, we’re dancing

Somersaulting in the aaair

Fun, but nothing fancy

Whatever, we don’t caaare

Having a real good time

Enjoy it with my friends

Fun’s ours, yours, mine

Hope it will never eeeend 

 

Zero worries around

My feet touches the ground,

Jumping back high

We’re feeling so alive

Boom boom we rebound

To this amazing sound

Fun, here’s a high five

Come with us, don’t be shy 

Zero worries around

My feet touches the ground,

Jumping back high

We’re feeling so alive

Boom boom we rebound

To this amazing sound

Fun, here’s a high five

Come with us, don’t be shy 

 

Party time’s on

Enjoy the sun

It’s gonna be so much fun

So much fun, so much fuuuun

 

Jumping high, we’re dancing

Somersaulting in the aaair

Fun but nothing fancy

Whatever, we don’t caaare

Having a really good time

Enjoy it with my friends

Fun’s ours, yours and mine

Hope it will never eeeend 

Jumping high, we’re dancing

Somersaulting in the aaair

Fun but nothing fancy

Whatever, we don’t caaare

Having a really good time

Enjoy it with my friends

Fun’s ours, yours and mine

Hope it will never eeeend
