Friends are Forever – Emma Pierson Releases “Don’t Forget to Remember Me” Single/Video

Hopeful Anthem to Staying Emotionally Close Through Physical Distance on Debut Release from Exciting New Songstress

August 2020 (New York, NY) — “Don’t Forget to Remember Me”, the new single/video from engaging young Austin based Singer/Songwriter Emma Pierson, is available on Spotify, YouTube and all the other major services today Friday August 28th 2020.

LISTEN TO “DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER ME” ON SPOTIFY

The song, co-written and produced by Emma alongside fellow students at Stages Music Arts in Maryland where she grew up, invites the listener to recall a time when someone they loved moved away, or when they themselves had to move away from their loved ones; as Emma was experiencing personally at the time during her move to Austin, TX last year.

Usually regarded as a sad moment, the situation could conversely be seen as a hopeful time to take a look back at the amazing memories that were created together, making a pact to stay in touch and stay just as close friends as before – despite the geographic challenges you will now face.

The message in Don’t Forget to Remember Me is also made especially relevant in the time of the COVID 19 pandemic, where social distancing and quarantines have made us all feel disconnected from our family and peers – regardless of location – sometimes even from those in our own house!

“Last year, one of my close friends moved to Ohio and I was feeling pretty sad about that; not knowing when we would see each other again”, Emma recalled, “Then it was decided that my family would be moving out of state as well; so I wrote this song as a way to help us never forget these friendships we built together”.

In addition to continuing her work with Stages, Emma’s eventual move to Austin has opened the doors for her to expand her musical endeavors under the guidance of celebrated singer/songwriters, Chad and Natasha Hudson, the proprietors of Hudson’s on Mercer.

She continued, “This song will hopefully serve as a reminder to everyone that we need to cherish the time we spend with each other, and that no matter the distance we need to work hard to keep in touch so we can make more memories together”.

Though “Don’t Forget to Remember Me” features a soulful, country-pop vibe, her upcoming tunes will showcase the evolution of her vocals, feature more mature themes, and highlight the influence of significant pop icons like Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift.

Willie Nile “Uncovered” featuring Nils Lofgren, Graham Parker, Richard Shindell and more out Aug 21

WILLIE NILE UNCOVERED (CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF MUSIC)

HONORS ONE OF ROCK’S TRUEST, MOST RESOLUTE SONGWRITERS;

DUE OUT ON PARADIDDLE RECORDS AUGUST 21.

Featured are Nils Lofgren, Graham Parker, Richard Barone, Richard Shindell, Elliott Murphy, John Gorka, Slaid Cleaves, James Maddock, Dan Bern, Kenny White, Rod Picott, Jen Chapin, Caroline Doctorow, Emily Duff, Pete Mancini, Iridesense and others.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit hunger relief foundation Rock Can Roll.

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Paradiddle Records announces the release of Willie Nile Uncovered (Celebrating 40 Years of Music) on August 21, 2020. This two-CD collection features 26 songs from the New York rocker’s entire recording history performed by an array of both veteran and emerging artists, each putting their unique stamp on his songs.

The set celebrates the brilliant songwriting of one of rock ’n’ roll’s unsung heroes, an artist whose diehard fan base has included Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven.

Paying tribute to Nile on Uncovered are Nils Lofgren, Graham Parker, Richard Barone, Richard Shindell, Elliott Murphy, John Gorka, Slaid Cleaves, James Maddock, Dan Bern, Kenny White, Rod Picott, Jen Chapin, Caroline Doctorow, Emily Duff, Pete Mancini and Iridesense among others, interpreting Willie’s songs in a range of styles -— rock, Americana, country, roots, folk and more.

Nile’s album New York at Night, released this past May 15. An earlier album, also a paean to New York, The Streets of New York, was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by Uncut magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Ones as one of the “Top Ten Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011,” and BBC Radio called it “THE rock ’n’ roll album of the year.” 

“I’m humbled and deeply grateful to all the artists involved in this project for taking the time to record such beautiful versions of these songs,” says Nile. “When I first heard there was going to be a tribute album I was a little embarrassed as I don’t feel I’m any more deserving than anyone else for an album like this but after a few glasses of red wine and hearing the album I was elated. It was startling to hear such unique, different and poignant interpretations of my songs. Heartfelt thanks to all involved for making this songwriter’s journey through the back roads of a soul more than worth the effort.” 

About Willie Nile:

“One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years” —The New Yorker

“One of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene …” —The New York Times

“Willie Nile’s artistic renaissance continues unabated.” —No Depression

About Willie Nile Uncovered:

“I couldn’t be happier.  Everybody did great versions!” —Willie Nile

“Many artist tribute albums miss the mark and fall short in capturing the spirit of the artist they are honoring. This is definitely not the case with Willie Nile Uncovered … Paradiddle assembled a who’s who of contemporary singer-songwriters who are exceptional message makers and tunesmiths in their own right …It’s an extraordinary tribute that gives justice to the brilliant Willie Nile catalog.” —Norm Prusslin, co-founder of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, President/Chair Emeritus Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, and founding GM, WUSB, Stony Brook, NY

Kidz Entertainment’s New “Tail” of Teamwork and the Foundations of Friendship

Kidz Entertainment’s New “Tail” of Teamwork and the Foundations of Friendship

Children’s Story/Songs and Activities Helping Kids Develop Confidence and Camaraderie 

Baldwin, NY – Presenting their signature character line Pansie & Friends, “I Can’t Seem To Find My Tail”, is a new children’s picture book (written by Diane Baumann and Kidz Entertainment, Inc) that tells the story of true friendship, helping one another, and learning to live together in peace and harmony. Pansie the Pig’s tail has gone missing and so Oliver the Frog, Tasha the Nightingale, Isabella the Swan and Logan the Bee go on an adventure to help her find it! Pansie and her friends get through their journey by using their heads and hearts and by facing the challenge, together.

“Ultimately, the goal is for my program to be a fun way for kids to learn about friendship and teamwork while making a positive impact on their development and behavior”, Founder and creator Baumann said.

To compliment the book, she added activities and created a coloring book, music, “Pin the Tail on Pansie”, and a writing activity “I Am A Friend When…” on character letterhead. In addition, Diane has also created a lesson that teachers and social workers can use as a guideline if they want to take the book and activities into the classroom. The activities also work well for the children with disabilities. 

Ms. Baumann remarked, “Children love to have the opportunity to lend a hand and share their own knowledge and experiences with others. It helps them become more self-confident and aware of their own abilities. The kids can see the value in helping and teaching someone else, and in turn, it can enhance their own skills”.

FUN FACT: There is a cartoon with Pansie & Friends which focuses on childhood behavioral development, socialization and simple academia in the works too!!

ANOTHER FUN FACT: The 3-in-1 Cuddly Fun® muff/handbag/plush animals have received a Utility Patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Tommy Botz’ Story of Loss and Redemption Helps Others Heal Through Music

Tommy Botz’ Story of Loss and Redemption Helps Others Heal Through Music

Fighting the Demon of Substance Abuse, Songwriter Inspires Change Through the Power of Words and Melody

 

 

May, 2020 (Cleveland, OH) — From a decades long battle with alcoholism,  which led him down the dark path of incarceration and homelessness, to finding sobriety and accomplishing his lifelong dream to professionally record his music, Songwriter Tommy Botz’s story is both a cautionary tale and an uplifting journey of redemption.

 

With much of today’s modern country music often glamorizing cold beers and heartache in an ever-continuous chain as a way to deal with pain, Tommy Botz is instead bringing his true-to-life struggle and its consequences to life through his music. 

 

Though prominent in many of the songs off his latest release “Family & Friends”, a powerful light is shined on his struggle with the bottle and the lives it can impact in his single “Maggie”.

 

LISTEN TO “MAGGIE” HERE:

MAGGIE 

 

Botz has also penned a heartbreaking yet beautiful ballad in “Teddy Bear”, a song written for a fellow inmate while locked up in an Ohio penitentiary. “He knew that I wrote songs and came to my cell in tears one night because he just found out that his little girl had passed away” Says Botz, “His wife was losing her mind questioning her faith and he asked if i could write something for his daughter’s memory.

 

LISTEN TO “TEDDY BEAR” HERE:

TEDDY BEAR 

 

Additionally, Singer Rose Marie, Tommy’s fiancé who has stood by his side for 30 years, sings on the powerful gospel song “He’s Coming Back”.

 

LISTEN TO “HE’S COMING BACK” HERE:

HE’S COMIN BACK 

 

Now sober for over 16 years, you can see Tommy has truly come a long way. Since finishing his incarceration, he’s been off the streets for good – living quietly at The Ed Keating Center, a halfway house in Ohio, after having “crawled through the doors” on May 3rd, 2004 as a “homeless drunk with nowhere to go”. 

 

There he met a kind old man named Jack Mulhall who told him that if he followed some direction he would never have to live like that again. “I wasn’t always a homeless drunk. I had dreams and goals like every young man has. I always loved country and gospel music.” says Botz, whose early interest led him to become the lead singer in two bands – The Chevells and The Caesars 5 early in his music career, winning a Battle of the Bands and winding up with an RCA recording contract. But after the loss of their guitar player and their contract being pulled, Botz’s drinking got worse and soon penitentiaries became a way of life.

 

From broken marriages to lost jobs, no car, and no license – living to drink and drinking to live became his routine. Finally, with several years of sobriety and working under his belt  – he made the decision to go for his dream and finally record some of the over 200+ songs he had written over the years.

 

“One night while I was praying I heard in my heart – go for your dream and I will put someone in your life who believes in your music”, and after contacting Ante Up Studios owner Michael Seifert, the two began a collaboration that would ultimately become his 6-song EP “Family and Friends”.

Jesse Eplan Ready to Enter the Arena and Take His Shot with “PLAYER” EP

Hip Hop Upstart Spins Fresh Beats and Delivers Strong Spits on Eight Dope New Tracks

It was announced today that emerging Hip Hop Performer/Producer (and Basketball aficionado) Jesse Eplan has released his latest collection of tracks; entitled “Player”, available now on Spotify and all the major services. 

 

Check out Jesse Eplan’s “Player” on Spotify:

https://open.spotify.com/album/4GOxKjFepIqtJSe1t7QH2j 

 

After blazing into high gear last fall with “Bakwoods”, it’s safe to say that the five tool trap/hip-hop/R&B Singer-Songwriter-Performer-Producer-Beatmaker has proven he is ready to take the court and ball with the starting five on “Player”.

 

These eight fire tracks show a real maturity in songwriting. Take Jesse’s unique approach and attention to the smallest details, couple that with a new-found creativity in the beat creation process, and you’ll agree that “Player” is career progress that’s palpable to any listener. 

 

With 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.

 

A New York native, Jesse broke major ground with the release of his first two major LP’s recorded while at the University of Tampa – 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).

 

Jesse made the move from Tampa to Los Angeles in 2018 where he is in the midst of taking his rightful spot at the top of the charts. While in LA, Eplan has continued adding to his ever growing musical palette, with strong songs and new fire beats coming seemingly every week. It seems we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg that is Jesse Eplan!

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:

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.

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”.

Mark Newman Releases Brand New LP “Empirical Truth”

Mark Newman  Releases Brand New LP “Empirical Truth”

July, 2019 (New York, NY) — It can certainly be said that a labor of love is not much of a labor at all, and with singer/songwriter and guitarist Mark Newman’s latest release “Empirical Truth” (via Danal Music) this is very much the case, as he’s proven once again his power of true musicianship.

 

Packed with Newman’s usual penchant for dynamic storytelling and political commentary throughout his lyrics, Empirical Truth certainly lives up to its name. With songs ranging in topic from the state of gun control in the U.S. to the Dakota Access Pipeline, an innocent man blamed for murder, love and loss and even a few covers from Little Feat, John Oates, and more – the album is brimming with a dynamic mix of Americana/Blues/Pop and slide-guitar work from start to finish. Newman is joined on the LP by Drummers Shawn Murray and John Michel, Keyboardists Kevin McKendree, James Dower and Mark Bonder, Bassist Craig Privett and Vocalists Naomi Margolin, Janet Montalbo, Maag Stanley, Steve Bluth, Jeff Lubin, Jacob Koch, and Norm Madnick.

 

GET “EMPIRICAL TRUTH” ON SPOTIFY !

A New York native, Mark Newman’s musical prowess has taken him around the world several times over, playing with an eclectic mix of noted musical talents from Sting to Elvis Costello, and Travis Tritt as well as his own solo work. A multi stringsman, Mark has mastered electric/acoustic/lap steel guitar as well as the mandolin and dobro, and with a voice reminiscent of many rock and blues men before him- it has the familiarity of an old friend yet the power and soul of many of today’s rock, soul, folk and R&B icons. For over five years, Newman and fellow songwriter Naomi Margolin have run the “Music From the Hive”  Singer/Songwriter Series, and for the past three years- “The Original Music Series” for bands, in an attempt to keep original music alive on Long Island. 

 

Although Newman has played a ton of exciting solo and full-band showcases–notably Delbert McClinton at Highline Ballroom just last month and Les Dudek at My Father’s Place at the Roslyn Hotel, The Paramount in Huntington opening for The Doobie Brothers, The Space at Westbury opening for the one and only Don Felder and David Bromberg on separate occasions, The Blue Note in Tokyo, Japan, and NYC’s Legendary Bitter End–he has also worked alongside so many soul, blues, and rock greats of our time including John Oates (Hall and Oates), Jim McCarty (The Yardbirds), Willy DeVille (Mink DeVille), Sam The Sham, Bobby Whitlock (Derek and the Dominos) and Sam Moore (Sam & Dave)!

 

Past releases include 2010’s “Walls of Jericho” filled with intricate guitar work and mixed with a plethora of sounds from hard rock to a lighter more Dylanesque folk tinge, and 2015’s  “Brussels” – a live acoustic-driven EP that packs a bluesy punch reminiscent of Clapton’s “Unplugged” album through both the guitar work and raw vocal power. His latest LP “Empirical Truth” is due later this year.

 

Empirical Truth Track Listing:

 

  1. Scapegoat 
  2. Life Without You
  3. Mississippi Mile
  4. When I Aim My Gun
  5. Seven Days
  6. One More Song About A Highway
  7. Sharin’ The Blues
  8. Pipeline
  9. Are You Lonely For Me
  10. Everything You Know
  11. Roll Um Easy
  12. Lycanthropy
