Ian Erix Set to Release Empowering Anthem “Raise Some Hell” Featuring Survivors of the Recent Parkland, FL School Shooting

Misfit Mindz Entertainment, an imprint of Nordican Music Group/The Orchard/Sony Music Entertainment is set to release a benefit record from Ian Erixfeaturing survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting — with 100% of all profits going to victim’s families and survivors of gun violence in addition to non-profits that support social justice movements, such as the student formed March For Our Lives and #NeverAgainMSD organizations. The recording, “Raise Some Hell“, pays homage to the recent lives lost, but is not a sad or sappy song. It is, instead, an up-tempo and empowering battle anthem calling the youth to hold truth to power and rise up against injustice anywhere they see it.

 It’s up to all of us to RAISE SOME HELL until real change comes…we will not let our voices be silenced.” – Ian Erix

Actual student survivors from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School took part in recording the song, lending their voices to background chants at a local studio near Parkland, Florida. The recording also includes soundbites from some of the most outspoken and high profile student survivors from MSD, namely Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg and Cameron Kasky.

The song is written and performed by rising int’l pop star, Ian Erix, who himself is a survivor of a shooting incident that left him desperately in fear for his life at a US airport, while departing for a tour last year. Erix has toured the world extensively, most recently appearing in the UAE at a pre-show for Katy Perry and performing in the MTV pre-show at Justin Bieber’s Purpose tour in India. Ian’s music has appeared in various charts across Europe and Asia, his last single, “Footprints In The Sand” rose to #5 on the dance radio charts in Japan. With his debut American album coming this summer, Erix has been named “Top Emerging Artist” for 2018 in a recent social media poll conducted by MTV Networks.

Raise Some Hell” Will Be Available This Thursday, March 29th!

Brooke Moriber Performing at NYC’s Mercury Lounge Wednesday, April 11th To Benefit EB Research Partnership

Brooke Moriber  Performing at NYC’s Mercury Lounge Wednesday, April 11th To Benefit EB Research Partnership

With her acclaimed National Anthem performance at Madison Square Garden just this past November following the release of her latest EP “Here and Gone”, singer/songwriter Brooke Moriber is getting ready to hit the stage once more – in support of a great cause. On Wednesday, April 11th she’ll perform live at the Mercury Lounge with support from Julian Morgan in an effort to raise money and awareness for the EB Research Partnership – helping the fight against Epidermolysis Bullosa.

WATCH: Brooke Moriber Sings National Anthem LIVE at Madison Square Garden

A native New Yorker, Moriber has been critically acclaimed for her “clarion voice” by the Associated Press and songs that are “destined for high rotation”. Her distinctive sound ranges in influences from Linda Ronstadt to Amy Lee.

Brooke’s unique career started on the Broadway stage where she earned a reputation for her powerhouse vocals and has received special mention by the New York Times for her acting abilities.

Since the age of fifteen, Brooke has been writing and licensing her own original pop/country/rock music to network television and several soundtracks. Brooke’s remarkable ability to juggle her career as a recording artist and an actor has found her sharing the stage and screen with such performers as The Gin Blossoms, Cindy Lauper, Alan Cumming, Lily Taylor and Kristin Johnston.

WATCH – “Cause The Wave: Eddie Vedder and the EB Research Partnership”

EB Research Partnership (formerly Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation) is the largest 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to funding research aimed at treating and ultimately curing Epidermolysis Bullosa, a group of devastating and life-threatening skin disorders that affect children from birth. An individual with EB lacks a critical protein that binds the layers of skin together. Without this protein, the skin tears apart, blisters and sheers off, leading to severe pain, disfigurement, and wounds that never heal. EB affects the body inside and out. Blisters occur all over the body, as well as in the eyes, mouth, esophagus, and other internal organs. EB causes severe pain, disfigurement, and in too many cases, an early death from an aggressive form of skin cancer. It is estimated that EB affects at least one in every 50,000 births. EB is not specific to any ethnicity or gender. Given that EB affects only 30,000 people in the US, advancing this research relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations.

With donor support, EB Research Partnership has been aggressively and efficiently funding research since 2010. To date, they have raised over $15 million for research grants and been instrumental in securing an additional $35 million for critical EB research. The organization helped to create and continues to support research enabling infrastructure to ensure that treatments will get to those in need as swiftly as possible, and with stars like Moriber and “Pearljam” rocker/activist Eddie Vedder bringing more awareness to the disorder, it can only continue to help in the fight.

And on Wednesday, April 11th Brooke Moriber will help continue that fight as she performs in support of the EB Research Partnership at NYC’s Mercury Lounge (217 E Houston St, New York, NY)!

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!

Billy Walton Band Debuts Latest Album “Soul of a Man”

Screen Shot 2017-12-19 at 1.17.55 PM.png

The Band Gets Ready to Bring Back More Old School Blues Rock’n Soul with Their Latest LP Since 2015’s “Wish For What You Want”

Having surpassed their goal following a successful PledgeMusic Campaign, the Billy Walton Band have just unleashed their newest LP “Soul of a Man” Friday, 1/12! As they wrap up the remaining U.S. Tour dates before heading across the pond performing in the U.K. through the start of the year along with stops in their home state, NC, and PA – the band that continues to celebrate the famed NJ musical tradition will hit the ground running in 2018 as they celebrate their 10 Year Anniversary!

ORDER “SOUL OF A MAN” VIA iTUNES HERE: http://apple.co/2klsSUy

There was a time when the Jersey Shore represented the best in American entertainment. Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, the Rat Pack, Dick Clark, Chubby Checker, they all made stops on the Jersey Shore. Tony Mart’s was the club Levon Helm was playing when Dylan called. Of course we all know what happened in Asbury Park. The town, ravaged by riots in the late 60’s, became a melting pot of musical experimentation. Late night jams that ended when the sun came up were the norm. Bruce Springsteen & Southside Johnny were the two acts that made their way to an international stage from these humble beginnings.

For decades musicians have come and gone, always hoping to make a living and pursue a dream. Billy Walton is no different. Billy’s proving ground was Long Beach Island. There he was chaperoned from gig to gig by his Mom, too young to drive around and enter the clubs on his own. He always was up for a jam and looking to learn some tricks. For years Billy spent his time sharpening his skills, developing his stage act until he decided to step up to center stage with the Billy Walton Band.

WATCH: “Hell Or Highwater” Official Video Off “Soul of a Man”

The band has focused its’ effort in Europe. 13 tours since 2007 have established the group in the fertile British Blues Rock scene. In 2010 Billy got the call to join in with one of the masters of the Asbury Park sound, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. For years Billy toured with the Jukes. Most people don’t know that the creative force behind Southside was none other than Little Steven. A highpoint in Billy’s tenure with the Jukes was when they recorded a live version of Southside’s most acclaimed release, Hearts of Stone, with Little Steven.

Good things have been happening to the Billy Walton Band. The band signed to Vizztone Records for the release of “Wish For What You Want” in 2015 – produced by Tony Braunagel, the award winning BMA producer and current Eric Burdon drummer, this batch of songs will certainly take the band to the next level!

You can say Bruce Springsteen is a singer songwriter fronting an old-school rock n soul band. Southside Johnny is a soul singer fronting an old-school rock n soul band. Billy Walton is the guitar hero fronting the old-school rock n soul band. The horns are the common thread!

Now, as they’ve released “Soul of a Man” and continue touring throughout the U.S. and U.K., you’ll have plenty of reasons to check out their new music and see why fans worldwide can’t get enough the Billy Walton Band!
