Sam Woolf & Como Brothers Reach Soulful Heights on New Single, “On It”

Sam Woolf & Como Brothers Reach Soulful Heights on New Single, “On It”

New Single Out February, 2018

Singer-songwriters Sam Woolf and The Como Brothers are releasing “On It”, the soulful new single from the upcoming EP Backbeat in the Morning. The single and EP were co-written and co-produced by Woolf and The Como Brothers, and recorded in New York City with Grammy-winning engineer Kenta Yonesaka (Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar). To celebrate the single and EP, Woolf and the Como’s kicked off 2018 with an enthusiastically received release party performance on Long Island, New York.

After gaining attention on American Idol in 2014, Woolf quickly debuted at #9 on Billboard’s Heatseakers in 2014 with his EP Pretend produced by Grammy-winning producer Danny Blume (Iggy Pop, Jewel). For Backbeat in the Morning, New York’s The Como Brothers teamed up with Sam. Inspired by pop, rock, blues, and hip-hop, the Como Brothers have established themselves as premier singer-songwriters working with industry legends like drummers Steve Jordan, Aaron Sterling and keyboardist Andy Burton.

Combining pop and rock with soul and hip-hop, drawing from influences ranging from Justin Timberlake and The Beatles, the six singles on Backbeat In The Morning showcase the musicality of the trio. Sam’s voice, which Keith Urban compared to butter, shows a beautiful range. Matt Como laid down grooving bass while Andrew Como played guitar, drums, and traded off singing lead vocal with Woolf throughout the EP. “Coming Home” opens the EP with optimistic lyrics set to Sam and Andrew’s dulcet harmonies amidst Andrew’s breezy guitar strums and wistful harmonica blasts. “On It” is a smooth groove with funky guitar licks. The hip-hop vibe continues with Andrew rapping on “Diamonds on My Chain” while Woolf sings the hook. The groove rolls on with “Twisted” hitting a romantic three-part harmony finish between the trio aptly titled “Sunshine.”

“Your voice is like butter.” – Keith Urban

“When you hit the sweet spot in your voice, everything melts.” – Jennifer Lopez

The video for “On It” similarly captures both Sam’s and the Como’s quirky personalities and singer-songwriter talent. These young stars are clearly on the rise and now is a good time to get “On It.”

Jesse Eplan Performing Live at Revolution Music Hall Sunday, February 11th

Jesse Eplan Performing Live at Revolution Music Hall Sunday, February 11th

As Singer/Songwriter and Producer Jesse Eplan gets ready to return to Long Island from his recent move to sunny Florida, he’ll kick off his home visit performing at Revolution Music Hall on Sunday, February 11th at 7PM!

Discovering a knack for music at a very young age, Jesse learned how to play multiple instruments from drums to bass, guitar, keyboards, and polished his vocal talents playing in local bands on his home turf – Long Island, NY. Eplan’s music consists of genres anywhere from Hip-Hop to Pop and R&B, and able to blend them in a unique way and make it his own has come from years of immersing himself in music.

Having first heard Led Zeppelin, ACDC, The Beatles and many of the world’s top music revolutionaries in early adolescence through his teen years – it influenced him immensely as he began performing in bands as a lead singer, drummer and lead guitar player. When he began playing throughout Long Island and Manhattan in various gigs and charity events which raised thousands of dollars helping to fight crohn’s disease, colitis, and breast cancer, he was then able to really cut his teeth as a live musician.

As he began developing perfect pitch from his guitar and piano playing, it helped him immensely with his next stage of music: writing, producing and recording. Purchasing Logic X Pro, he was able to learn the digital audio workstation and music production software with ease, teaching himself every facet of the program and figuring out how to make beats to record his own vocal tracks over. This brought him into a new world of exploring Hip-Hop, R&B and Trap Music which would be where he ultimately found his niche as a successful singer/songwriter and producer.

Since then, he’s made appearances on My Long Island TV’s Rick’s Rising Stars (which airs on Verizon FiOS1), as a guest on Live It Up! with Donna Drake, and performed LIVE on the world famous Jones Beach Bandshell stage for the 2017 “Live at the Shell” Summer Concert Series.

WATCH: Jesse Eplan “DANK” Official Video (CLEAN)

In his latest video “DANK” directed by Big Face and Produced by Black & White Productions, the song encapsulates Eplan’s excitement for his new surroundings – having recently started college at the University of Tampa. He he said of the song in a recent interview with AntiMusic.com “The whole idea around ‘Dank’ is just being yourself, hanging out with friends, and doing what college kids do.” On his excitement for shooting parts of the video in and around campus, Eplan explains “The producer caught some great shots of the city with a drone. We also had great weather so the pool scene was crazy, as was the convertible driving through the streets of Tampa with me and my friends.

And as he gets ready to bring “DANK” and more songs off his recent “Trap Harmony” EP to life LIVE on stage at Revolution Sunday, February 11th at 7PM, fans will have a chance to see him back on his home turf!

Annamaria Attending 4th Annual Event “The Soirée” At The B.B. King Blues Club, NYC This Saturday, January 27th

As the 60th Annual GRAMMY® Awards get ready to make their return to NYC, NYC based Singer/Songwriter Annamaria is ready to kick off the celebration as she hits the red carpet for the 4th Annual Soirée at the world famous B.B. King Blues Club (237 W 42nd St, New York, NY)!

THE SOIREE is The Music Industry’s Annual Kick-off Gala during GRAMMY Weekend, and has quickly become one of the most anticipated leading annual music industry events. Bringing together Grammy Nominees and Winners, music industry executives, major labels, managers, producers, licensors, agents, celebrities and industry influencers – bringing the young star right in the center of celebration!

This year’s Honoree at the Gala will be famed singer/actress/advocate Dionne Warwick, who will be receiving the “Living Legend” Award.

annamaria reflection.jpg

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 release “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.

Now, as she gets ready to head to one of the biggest GRAMMY® Week events in NYC and continue connecting with the Music Industry’s best and brightest at the 4th Annual Soirée at B.B. King Blues Club, there seems to be a lot more in store for her as 2018 progresses.
