TASH SULTANA
“THROUGH THE VALLEY” COVER
FROM PLAYSTATION’S
THE LAST OF US PART II
OUT NOW
 
WATCH HERE|LISTENHERE

 

To mark one of the biggest gaming title launches of the year, PlayStation®4 exclusive The Last of Us™ Part II, PlayStation Australia worked with multi-instrumentalist and global sensation acclaimed artist TASH SULTANA to re-record “Through The Valley”–the iconic track from the game’s reveal trailer that went viral in 2016. Due to overwhelming demand, the release of TASH‘s cover of “Through The Valley” is available now on Mom+Pop.
 
“This is the first time I’ve done a collab like this,” TASH says. “Usually, it’s kinda just like writing sessions with other musos but this is for a game and it’s different as it’s not my usual style to venture into so I’m completely honored to be asked to do something like this. The reaction has been amazing and it’s been great hearing all the positive messages from everyone so I wanted to make sure the song was available everywhere.”
 
The original track by U.S. blues and folk artist Shawn James is sung by lead character Ellie in The Last of Us™ Part II reveal trailer and tells a dark tale of struggle and someone who, by the grace of their own killer instinct, does not fear. The song is reminiscent of Ellie’s experience in a cruel post-pandemic world.
Patrick Lagana, Director of Marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia, said, “‘Through The Valley’ became a #1 hit in several markets when featured in the 2016 reveal trailer for The Last of Us Part II, so we were super excited with the idea of recreating this with a phenomenal Aussie talent like TASH SULTANA that truly creates a special Australian moment to mark the launch of one of our biggest titles for PS4.”
 
Matt Holmes, Executive Creative Director at Poem, said, “We’re passionate about earning attention for brands by creating ideas that earn a place in people’s lives, ideas that people will actually care about. The TLOU world is incredibly immersive and fans are genuinely emotionally invested in the characters and the story. We wanted to tap into that feeling and the crazy excitement for this sequel by using music as it’s a powerful emotional trigger and several tracks and guitar chords have become synonymous with the game. I couldn’t be prouder of the result. TASH did an incredible job in the recording and the final launch video is a cool collision of cultures that The Last of Us™ fans and music fans are loving.”

About TASH:
 
TASH SULTANA is an explosive live artist who has commanded global attention since homemade videos went viral. Tash was soon selling out major arenas globally and playing at the world’s biggest festivals–no mean feat for an artist who just a year before was recording songs on a go pro in a bedroom.
Since Tash’s grandfather gifted a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed a unique style that has seen Tash breaking record attendances around the globe. Tash has mastered over 12 instruments, has a vocal that shines with a magical quality and a live show that needs to be seen to be believed.
The one-person powerhouse started out playing open mic nights on a fake id and busking on the streets of Melbourne, Australia. Recent accolades include over 1 Billion combined streams, an ARIA award for Blues and Roots Album of The Year with ‘Flow State’, smash single ‘Jungle’ coming in at #3 in triple j’s Hottest 100, achieving platinum sales for the Notion EP, double platinum sales for ‘Jungle’ and platinum sales for ‘Notion’ along with numerous gold certified singles. Tash’s live show has seen her become the only artist to sell out 3 Brixton Academy shows before their debut album along with selling another 500,000 tickets worldwide which recently culminated in a sold out performance at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, with noted stand out sets at Coachella & Lollapalooza.
 
 

 

SINGLE MUSIC DEBUTS LIVESTREAM TICKETING FOR SHOPIFY

DT: JULY 21, 2020
FM: MITCH SCHNEIDER, KELLY WALSH

SINGLE MUSIC
DEBUTS LIVESTREAM TICKETING FOR SHOPIFY

 

SINGLE MUSIC, the leading music distribution toolkit for Shopify, continues to expand boundaries with their innovative app that allows direct-to-consumer sales for artists, labels and merch companies as they introduce a new feature–bringing ticketed live streams into an artist’s existing store.
Artists are now able to sell tickets to and perform a live stream along with a built-in moderated fan chatroom, directly from their store. Tickets can be bundled with a merch item or to raise money for a charitable cause.
“The loss of touring has drastically affected ticket revenue, including ancillary merch sales that make up a significant portion of an artist’s income,” says SINGLE MUSIC CEO and entrepreneur/musician Tommy Stalknecht. “By hosting live streams within an artist’s Shopify storefront, artists are experiencing record-breaking traffic, sales volumes, and creating direct relationships with their fans for future engagement. The artist controls the messaging, branding, and, most importantly–the transaction. Once touring has come back in full swing, knowing who attended your live streams will be invaluable in getting live revenue back on track.”

Since launching the live stream ticketing platform this past April, SINGLE MUSIC artists-including Michael Franti, Dance Gavin Dance, Underoath, Dashboard Confessional and more–have sold more than 65,000 tickets and received over $1.5mm in 100% commission-free merch and ticket bundle sales. SINGLE MUSIC has also aligned with companies offering optional add-on services including an SMS Virtual Photobooth, Virtual Meet & Greet, Vinyl Record PressingCall to Actions for social causes (including voter registration, petitions, etc.) and more.

See some praise from their current clients below:

Working with Single Music these last few months has been awesome. When we first dipped our toes into the live streaming waters we were definitely a bit lost and they helped us navigate a lot of the complexities! Super stoked to have such an involved and responsive team on the other end of the line!
SWITCHFOOT
 
“Working with Single Music on the Michael Franti Stay At Home Concert series has greatly increased traffic and sales to the online store, much more than we anticipated. There is an overall increase in merch sales bundled with the live stream tickets as well as standalone merch.  I am blown away by the results and we are hoping to replicate with other Manhead clients.”
Bruce Fitzhugh, VP Artist Services, Manhead Merch
“I spent a few weeks vetting streaming platforms and very quickly I realized Single Music set the bar others had to meet.  They were the only service that was 100% built around how to support the artists to generate as much revenue as possible because they were built into Shopify. Other platforms told us they could link to our store and had other loose drivers to merch. Single Music combined with Shopify apps like Klayvio allowed us to substantially exceed the revenue per streamer seen on most other platforms and they do this all with a lower fee than the others!”
Randy Nichols, Force Media Management, Underoath
SINGLE MUSIC now has over 2,000 artists and labels currently signed up for their service including Juice WRLD, Harry Styles, LAUV, Tim McGraw and HAIM. Combined clients have delivered over 1,000,000 digital albums including 11 #1 charting records. They have also aligned themselves with many top merchandising companies such as Live Nation Merch, Absolute Merch, The Hyv, Wallflower Merch and Futureshirts.
SINGLE MUSIC was created by Stalknecht to provide an easy way for artists and labels to sell their merch and music directly to fans while keeping a larger portion of revenues. The paradigm also offers instant reporting to Nielsen for official Billboard chart tallying and was the first Shopify app to offer BuzzAngle reporting for the Rolling Stone Charts. To further help artists achieve success, the company developed BoostLinks, a marketing tool to drive follows, subscribes and pre-saves that allows artists to create a customizable landing page that combines their physical merch with pre-adds, saves and streaming links to increase fan engagement, follows and subscribes.

SONS OF SILVER Release Politically Charged Video For “Rude Awakenings”

LOS ANGELES ALT ROCK GROUP
SONS OF SILVER
RELEASE POLITICALLY CHARGED VIDEO
FOR “RUDE AWAKENINGS”
FROM THEIR RECENTLY RELEASED
‘DOOMSDAY NOISES’ EP

BAND FEATURES
FORMER MEMBERS OF PEARL JAM, CANDLEBOX AND SKILLET
 
Los Angeles alternative rock group SONS OF SILVER today (July 17) released “Rude Awakenings,” a new video from their DOOMSDAY NOISES EP. The propaganda art clip captures sentiments that reflect the current state of the world with political imagery alongside the song’s strong lyrics. Watch the video here.
 
“I was stockpiling song ideas when I came up with the basic ideas for ‘Rude Awakenings,” the band’s frontman Peter Argyropoulos explains. “I wasn’t looking to finish anything. In fact, I was only looking for incomplete ideas that we would finish together. But then the basic foundation for ‘Rude Awakenings’ just came out. I played it for Brina along with a few other ideas the next day. She was really into it. But, I back-burner’ed it. I was unsure if it fit with the other songs we were in the middle of. Nonetheless, she persisted and won out. When the guys heard it, they said, ‘why didn’t we hear this sooner?’ I think it took us about twenty minutes to put it all together and take it to a completely different level than I’d originally expected it could be at. It really highlights each of our influences from the rockabilly rhythm section to the punk-bluesy guitars, to the Stonesy woo-hoos. A great team effort. Credit Brina [Kabler, the band’s keyboardist and engineer] especially for not letting the song slip through the cracks.”
 
SONS OF SILVER’s collaborative songwriting style, signature sound and collective years of experience is what make them such a standout phenom in the alt rock scene. Led by Peter Argyropoulos, SONS OF SILVER features original Pearl Jam drummer Dave Krusen, Candlebox bassist Adam Kury, Skillet guitarist Kevin Haaland and keyboardist and esteemed engineer Brina Kabler. Logging nearly 80 shows per year, the musicians were more united than ever back in the studio. On DOOMSDAY NOISES, songs spun off from jam sessions as a unit and the writing process relied on their musical interplay.
 
“Rude Awakenings” marks the third video released from the DOOMSDAY NOISES EP. It follows two powerful singles and videos: World On Fire” and Read ‘Em Their Rights,the latter of which has garnered nearly a million views so far and is climbing the rock radio charts. Listen to the EP here.

“(Keep Mar-A-Lago But) I Want America Back”: ERIC HIRSHBERG’s Powerful And Timely Single Out Today

 
DATE: JULY 17, 2020
 
FROM: MARCEE RONDAN
 
 
“Keep Mar-a-Lago/
But I Want America Back…”
–Eric Hirshberg
 
ERIC HIRSHBERG
RELEASES POWERFUL AND TIMELY SINGLE
“(KEEP MAR-A-LAGO BUT) I WANT AMERICA BACK”
IN ADVANCE OF HIS FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM
‘SPARE ROOM’
 
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
AND LISTEN TO THE SONG HERE
100% OF PROCEEDS FROM MERCHANDISE RELATED TO THE SONG
WILL BE DONATED TO
THE JOE BIDEN CAMPAIGN

 

 

 
 
 
With his debut album in final preparations, Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, musician ERIC HIRSHBERG has released a song suited for these tumultuous times. “(Keep Mar-a-Lago But) I Want America Back” is from HIRSHBERG‘s forthcoming debut album, SPARE ROOM, due out later this summer. Watch the video here and listen to the song here.
 
“(Keep Mar-a-Lago But) I Want America Back” was written over the past few years since Trump took office. The song’s propulsive energy and lyrics mince no words, articulating the frustration that Hirshberg–and the majority of Americans–feel with the current occupant of The White House. The song’s powerful chorus states, “Keep Mar-a-Lago, but I want America back.”
 
ERIC explains, “”With a chorus like ‘Keep Mar-a-Lago, but I want America back,’ I don’t think there’s any way for me to sugar coat–this is an anti-Donald Trump song. I’m not trying to convince anyone who disagrees with me to agree with me. I’m just trying to create a sonic release valve for my unspeakable levels of frustration at the current state of things in America, and offering it up to those who do agree with me. The photos which serve as the foundation for the video were taken at The Women’s March in both New York and LA, the March for Our Lives in LA, and at various Black Lives Matter protests around the country–all since Trump took office. It works as a sort of sad scrapbook for the near constant state of protest we’ve been in for the past three and a half years.”
 
In an effort to support the song’s powerful sentiments HIRSHBERG will donate 100% of proceeds on the merchandise related to this song to the JOE BIDEN campaign. To purchase a shirt, click here, or donate to the campaign.

 

 
 
 
With unguarded lyrics and an eye for detailed storytelling, SPARE ROOM uses the extremely personal to find the universal. The songs cover a wide range of what HIRSHBERG calls “life’s big small moments.” HIRSHBERG adds that he likes to write songs “about the things everybody lives…but don’t always talk about.” Stay tuned for additional details about SPARE ROOM.
 
“(Keep Mar-a-Lago But) I Want America Back” Lyrics:
 
It’s a long way to fall
From where we started from
It’s a long way to go
From where we’re starting now
I can’t believe with the lies that we’re living through
There aren’t riots in the streets
Don’t want to have another pissed off conversation
While we’re getting something to eat
I’m scared that everything we’ve treasured all along
Is already gone
Sick and tired of feeling uninspired
This is not how it’s supposed to be
Sick and tired of feeling righter
That’s not enough for me
I’m tired of waiting for this pendulum to swing
We’ve gotta start pushing back
Keep Mar-a-Lago
But I Want America Back
It’s hard to believe
How fragile this all was
It’s hard to believe
How fast we tore it down
Don’t want to watch the news on the TV tonight
‘Cause I just can’t take anymore
Don’t want to listen to anymore justifications
‘Cause we’ve heard ’em all before
I’m scared that everything we’re fighting to escape from
Is what we’ve become
Sick and tired of feeling uninspired
This is not how it’s supposed to be
Sick and tired of feeling righter
That’s not enough for me
I’m tired of waiting for this pendulum to swing
We’ve gotta start pushing back
Keep Mar-a-Lago
But I Want America Back

SUNNY OZELL Releases Video For Her Version Of Los Lobos’ “The Valley” Track From Her New EP

 
DATE:        JULY 16, 2020
 
FROM:       MARCEE RONDAN
 
 
 
 
SUNNY OZELL
‘LIVE AT THE VILLAGE’
ACOUSTIC EP
DUE OUT TODAY (JULY 17)
 
VIDEO FOR HER VERSION OF LOS LOBOS’
“THE VALLEY” OUT NOW
WATCH HERE
 
 
To coincide with today’s release of her new EP LIVE AT THE VILLAGE, singer-songwriter SUNNY OZELL has released a video for her personally poignant cover of Los Lobos“The Valley.” Watch the clip here.
 
“I believe Los Lobos to be one of America’s greatest living rock bands,” SUNNY says. “Their body of work is wide and remarkable, with composition and musicianship that is acutely human, organic, and intelligent. But their approach to the actual ‘auditory experience’ of their music adds layers of meaning for me as listener, and I find that their sonic choices only serve to push their music into that realm of the ineffable, where you can’t quite put your finger on why you’re crying, you just know that you’re deeply moved.  And to my mind, ‘The Valley’ is a great example of this kind of profound synthesis between form and content.”
 
The all-acoustic LIVE AT THE VILLAGE EP is comprised of “The Valley” and raw and affecting versions of four songs from her OVERNIGHT LOWS album (released earlier this year). The EP was recorded live at the historic Village Studios in Los Angeles. Listen here.
 
The tracks on LIVE AT THE VILLAGE all hold a very meaningful sense of place both geographically and spiritually. “Driving Highways” references the landscape of SUNNY‘s home state of Nevada, and the English countryside is conjured in “The Garden.” The themes of the transience of travel and memory factor into “Comes And It Goes.”
 
Live At The Village tracklisting:
 
  1. Hammer And Nail (Acoustic)
  2. Driving Highways (Acoustic)
  3. Comes And It Goes (Acoustic)
  4. The Garden (Acoustic)
  5. The Valley (Acoustic)
 
 
SUNNY’s OVERNIGHT LOWS (released earlier this year) gleams with engaging melodies and intelligent wordplay performed with a sophisticated fluency in pop, jazz, soul and Americana dialects. In SUNNY‘s words, OVERNIGHT LOWS reflects the soul and simplicity of her passion for such inspirations as Bonnie Raitt, David Byrne, Cassandra Wilson, and Aretha Franklin. Players on the album include Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant, Aimee Mann, Alison Krauss), Tyler Chester (George Ezra, Maddison Cunningham), Andy Hess (The Black Crowes, David Byrne), Adam Levy (Norah Jones, Roseanne Cash), and Rich Hinman (Sara Bareilles). The album was recorded at Village Studios in Los Angeles, and engineered by Mike Piersante. “All That I Am,” the album’s first single, debuted earlier this year at AMERICAN SONGWRITER.

THE STRAY CATS Set To Release New Live Album ‘Rocked This Town: From LA To London’ On September 11

 

 
DATE: JULY 17, 2020
 
FROM: MITCH SCHNEIDER/MARCEE RONDAN
 

 

 
 
THE STRAY CATS
SET TO RELEASE NEW LIVE ALBUM
‘ROCKED THIS TOWN: FROM LA TO LONDON’
ON SEPTEMBER 11
 
 
 
ROCKED THIS TOWN: FROM LA TO LONDON is the name of the upcoming live album by The STRAY CATS. Available September 11 via Surfdog Records and distributed by BMG (CD, vinyl, digital), this collection of 23 tracks recorded during the band’s critically acclaimed 40th Anniversary Tour in 2019 combines their unparalleled virtuosity and red-hot rock & roll spirit, all raw and completely live–the way it was played on sweaty stages around the world. View the album trailer here and click here to pre-order the album.
 
The live album was produced by the multi-platinum band’s guitarist/vocalist Brian Setzer, upright bass player Lee Rocker and drummer Slim Jim Phantom–original founding members of the iconic American rock and roll trio–and mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Arctic Monkeys).The album’s career-spanning track listing (below) features their greatest hits as well as several brand-new scorchers from last year’s 40, the band’s first new album in 26 years.
 
40 kicked the door open on a fiery new chapter in The STRAY CATS’ career. It entered the charts at #1 on the Current Rock chart; #3 on the Indie chart; and #5 on the Billboard Album Sales chart. This marked the group’s highest entries since 1983’s Built For Speed, which was released 36 years ago. American Songwriter declared “The Stray Cats remain a well-oiled machine, as super charged in 2019 as they were 40 years earlier (5/21/19), while All Music noted: “Comfortable in their skin and still intoxicated by a big rockabilly beat, the Stray Cats sound vigorous and sly…(5/24/19).”
 
On the live front, The STRAY CATS performed overseas shows last June and July and then toured America from August 2-September 1 (presented by SiriusXM). As Newsday (New York) noted,“All three are now virtuosos on their instruments, with Rocker and Phantom weaving together intricate rhythms while Setzer delivers wild guitar solos. And Setzer’s rockabilly croon has only deepened and improved with age, as he showed on their breakout hit ‘Stray Cat Strut’ and a gorgeous version of ‘I Won’t Stand in Your Way.’ The simplicity of their setup makes what they do with songs like ‘Rock This Town,’ which becomes an epic anthem live with solos from Setzer and Rocker, all the more stunning” (8/3/19).

The Stray Cats from L-R: Brian Setzer, Slim Jim Phantom, Lee Rocker,
By Russ Harrington
 
 
About The STRAY CATS:
The STRAY CATS, the band that put Rockabilly music back on the record charts in the early ’80s, scored several big hits on both sides of the Atlantic thanks to a striking visual 1950’s style brought “up to date” with exaggerated pompadours and colorful tattoos and as well as genuine musical chops that evoked the best players of rockabilly’s original heyday. Formed by guitarist/vocalist Brian Setzer, upright bass player Lee Rocker and drummer Slim Jim Phantom in the Long Island town of Massapequa, NY, in 1979, the trio shared a love for Rockabilly music. After banging around New York for a few months, in the summer of 1980, and seeing a pompadoured kid on the cover of UK magazine NME, they hopped a plane to London where a rockabilly revival movement was just beginning to emerge. Their massive hits and videos include “Runaway Boys,” “Rock This Town,” “Stray Cat Strut” “(She’s) Sexy + 17,” and “I Won’t Stand in Your Way.”

About TASH:
 
TASH SULTANA is an explosive live artist who has commanded global attention since homemade videos went viral. Tash was soon selling out major arenas globally and playing at the world’s biggest festivals – no mean feat for an artist who just a year before was recording songs on a go pro in a bedroom.
 
Since Tash’s grandfather gifted a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed a unique style that has seen Tash breaking record attendances around the globe. Tash has mastered over 12 instruments, has a vocal that shines with a magical quality and a live show that needs to be seen to be believed.
 
The one-person powerhouse started out playing open mic nights on a fake id and busking on the streets of Melbourne, Australia. Recent accolades include over 1 Billion combined streams, an ARIA award for Blues and Roots Album of The Year with ‘Flow State’, smash single ‘Jungle’ coming in at #3 in triple j’s Hottest 100, achieving platinum sales for the Notion EP, double platinum sales for ‘Jungle’ and platinum sales for ‘Notion’ along with numerous gold certified singles. Tash’s live show has seen her become the only artist to sell out 3 Brixton Academy shows before their debut album along with selling another 500,000 tickets worldwide which recently culminated in a sold out performance at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, with noted stand out sets at Coachella & Lollapalooza.

MANNY BLU
UNVEILS OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR
THE FIRST SINGLE FROM
UPCOMING EP ‘NEW INK’
OUT NOVEMBER 13
 
With his amplified mix of country twang and heavy rock & roll attitude, emerging artist and country rocker MANNY BLU today (July 16) released the official music video for “Born To Ride.” It’s the first single from the upcoming EP, NEW INK, available November 13, by the Montreal native and Nashville transplant.
 
“The ‘Born To Ride’ video is a small glimpse into our live show,” says BLU of the video performance, directed by Sean Davé for Gear Seven (Keith Urban, Brett Eldredge, and Chris Lane). “We shot it in a giant blimp hanger outside of Nashville. Pretty amazing space for a shoot.” 
 
“Born To Ride”–written by hit Nashville songwriters Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne–is a track about finding that ‘ride or die’ person who will have your back as much as you have theirs. The five-track NEW INK EP was recorded at OmniSound Studios in Nashville and produced by Aaron Eshuis.
 
MANNY continues to bring his own rebellious vibe to country music–a sound he introduced with Leave It Like It Is, his debut record (2019) that earned him thousands of new fans and presented him with the opportunity to hit the road across Canada and the US. Last spring BLU spent two months crossing Canada while opening for George Canyon‘s “Hit After Hit Tour” and then headlined his own Canadian tour to close out the year. Earlier this spring, BLU crossed the US and Canada on another headlining tour. Fans can expect new show announcements in the coming months. 
 
With touring on hold, BLU says: “I’ve been using this time to listen through some demos and work on new songs for next year. Already working on recording a few which is exciting.”
