TASH SULTANA
RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR
‘BEYOND THE PINE’

Australian multi-instrumentalist TASH SULTANA today released the official music video for “Beyond The Pine” on Mom + Pop Music. The ARIA award-winning musical luminary connected with fans across the globe for the video premiere on YouTube this morning.

TASH SULTANA‘s music beautifully narrates a visual masterpiece starring Australian dancers Timothy Springs and Chris Haines. Directed by renowned Sydney-based cinematographer Patrick Rohl, the video cleverly illuminates the joys and trials of an intimate relationship through the contrast of light and shade, flow and tension.

TASH offered a deeper layer of meaning to the creative behind the video, explaining that “love is yours no matter the colour, race, gender, religion, sexuality or identity. Here is a visual representation of energy fluidity.”

Since premiering on triple j in their native Australia, “Beyond The Pine” has become the most played song at the network, received major support from DSPs globally, and has now surpassed over one million streams. TASH co-wrote this dreamy tune alongside Matt Corby and Dann Hume at their home studio in Melbourne. Of the single, TASH says “It’s a little bit of a slower, softer approach to a message from within, ‘Beyond The Pine’ is about finding solace in nature and realizing the depth of your relationship when you find your one.”

Other recently released songs, “Pretty Lady” and “Greed‘” will join ‘Beyond The Pine,‘ on TASH SULTANA‘s forthcoming sophomore album, TERRA FIRMA (release date TBA).

About Tash Sultana:
For an artist that only released their debut album two years ago, TASH, who identifies as non-binary and prefers they/them pronouns, is not showing any signs of slowing things down. With over one billion total worldwide streams, 500,000 tickets sold globally including a sold out Red Rocks Ampitheatre, performing stand-out sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Governer’s Ball, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and more, TASH has also made their U.S. debut TV performance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

HARRY SHEARER Releases “Acquittal,” Eighth Song In Donald Trump Series

 

 

 
 
DATE:      SEPTEMBER 18, 2020
 
FROM:     MARCEE RONDAN
 
 
 
“THE SIMPSONS” AND “SPINAL TAP” STAR
HARRY SHEARER
RELEASES EIGHTH SONG IN DONALD TRUMP SERIES:
“ACQUITTAL”
 
  
 
When you cross me I remember
When you serve me I forget
They say I learned a lesson
I haven’t learned one yet
I wake up every morning
So angry and so brittle
But screw all that
It’s payback time
Ever since my Acquittal
#DonaldTrumpSong
 
LISTEN HERE
 
As the U.S. election campaign picks up pace, HARRY SHEARER releases the eighth song in his Donald Trump series. “ACQUITTAL” is the latest addition to the track-a-week cycle, in which “The Simpsons and “Spinal Tap star transforms the ups and downs of the current presidency into musical form.
 
ACQUITTAL” is a song of bitterness and vengeance, which has SHEARER as Trump wielding the knife as he conducts a purge against both those who testified against him and even some who supported him. In this ‘prog rock revenge anthem,’ the president basks in the sheer vitriolic joy on offer when it’s time to settle scores.
 
As SHEARER says: “When you’re impeached, and survive, the natural human impulse is balls-out revenge.”
 
ACQUITTAL” features Shearer on lead vocals as Trump, with backing by Sharlotte Gibson and CJ Vanston, Marc Bonilla on guitar, Toss Panos on drums and CJ Vanston on all other instruments. The track is released by Twanky Records.
 
ACQUITTAL” follows the old school R&B anthem to Jared Kushner SON IN LAW” (with groundbreaking motion capture video), the disco/plaintive folk number celebrating Trump’s consistent inconsistency in his approach to the pandemic “COVID-180,” “VERY STABLE GENIUS,” a low-power power-ballad, in which the leader of the free world vaunts his self-proclaimed intellectual prowess combined with his calm and balanced disposition, “STORMY DANIELS, a romantic ballad of passion, power and pay off, ALABAMA,a southern rock style tribute to the state that holds such a special place in the Trump ‘heart,’ “NUMBER ONE SON,” Donald Sr’s “electric chop suey” paean to his eldest child Donald Jr and INEVER KNEW HIM,“an eclectic musical mix that demonstrates that the president might not have “one of the greatest memories of all time” as he purges his contact book and airbrushes his history of those who may be an impediment to his ratings.
 
HARRY SHEARER has vocally portrayed every U.S. president of his lifetime. Donald Trump is the third he has portrayed physically, having previously played Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan on screen.
 
Harry Shearer says of the series of Trump themed song series:
 
“My Donald Trump is almost as eager for continued public attention as the ‘real’ Trump.”

DARK SIDE OF LIGHT To Release “Summer Breeze” Cover 9/18; Tease Music Video

DT: SEPTEMBER 17, 2020

FM: MITCH SCHNEIDER, KELLY WALSH/SRO PR
 
 
DARK SIDE OF LIGHT
CLOSE OUT THE VERY UNUSUAL SUMMER OF 2020
WITH TOMORROW’S RELEASE OF THEIR
COVER OF SEALS AND CROFTS’
“SUMMER BREEZE”
 
NEW LOS ANGELES INDIE DUO

TODAY PREVIEW THE TRACK WITH TRAILER FOR UPCOMING SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-FOCUSED MUSIC VIDEO

 
  
New Los Angeles-based indie rock duo DARK SIDE OF LIGHT–conceived out of the pandemic to fill the anxiety-charged hours of our new normal–are closing out the very unusual summer of 2020 by celebrating the spirit of the endless summer with their cover of Seals and Crofts‘ “yacht rock” classic, “Summer Breeze.” Having already received airplay on KCRW after the band sent the track to DJ Liza Richardson who played it on her Saturday show, the band’s debut single will be released across all digital platforms this Friday, September 18.
 
Today (September 17), the duo–singer/songwriter/DJ Nik Frost (The Bangkok Five, Air Liquide) and Emmy Award-winning producer/engineer Grant Conway on drums–share a preview of the music video for “Summer Breeze” directed by Eden Tyler. It was shot in various locations around their hometown of Los Angeles, including the popular Valley Relics Museum in Van Nuys. Watch the preview directly via YouTube here and stay tuned for its release.
 
“Since mid-March, some lost jobs, some lost love, and tragically some lost this precious thing we call life,” recalls NikFrost–a singer/songwriter/DJ who’s worked with everyone from Malcolm McLaren to Photek. “Somewhere in this endless summer loop of loss, me and a good friend found a classic track that while it might not be more than a band-aid in these times, we hope it can give everyone 3:49 back on this lost summer.”

“No graduations, no vacations, just lots of “NO’s,” says Grant Conway–a drummer by nature and a producer/engineer by trade. “No one got to do the usual things of summer.  But I did find a little piece of nostalgia that seemed to offer a little bit of light, hope and love. Let’s close out the unusual summer of 2020 with some positive vibes, ‘Summer Breeze.'”

OZZY OSBOURNE
CLOSES OUT BUSY 2020 WITH
40TH ANNIVERSARY EXPANDED DIGITAL EDITION OF
HIS LANDMARK DEBUT ALBUM
‘BLIZZARD OF OZZ’
 
DUE OUT SEPTEMBER 18 ON SONY/LEGACY,
THE PACKAGE INCLUDES SEVEN LIVE TRACKS
CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
 
TWO LONGFORM VIDEOS:
“LIVE & LOUD” AND
“LIVE AT BUDOKAN,”
ALSO AVAILABLE DIGITALLY
 
 
OZZY OSBOURNE kicked off 2020 with his critically acclaimed #1 rock album ORDINARY MAN–his first new solo album in ten years–and a planned return to the road. And then came the pandemic. Now, fans of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter can enjoy a variety of projects celebrating his legacy this fall. First up was the September 7 premiere of A&E Network’s “Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne.” He’ll also wrap the year by releasing the 40th anniversary expanded digital edition of his landmark debut album BLIZZARD OF OZZ and digital versions of two classic longform videos, LIVE & LOUD and LIVE AT BUDOKAN.
Initially released on September 20, 1980 in the UK, BLIZZARD OF OZZ marked OZZY‘s debut studio album (following his departure from Black Sabbath); the expanded digital 40th anniversary edition is set for release September 18 on Sony/Legacy. The new package includes OZZY hits: “Crazy Train,” which will hit certified 5x platinum status to coincide with its September release date; the gold-certified (in four countries) “Mr. Crowley” (both of which feature Randy Rhoads on guitar); along with “Suicide Solution,” plus live versions of seven tracks that are currently unavailable digitally. The record was ultimately certified 5x platinum and was ranked #9 on Rolling Stone‘s list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time” in the U.S.; platinum (or multi-platinum) in another 12 countries and gold in an additional 13 countries. BLIZZARD OF OZZ was the first of two studio albums recorded with guitarist Randy Rhoads. The album’s “Crazy Train” went on to become one of OSBOURNE‘s signature tracks; the song has also become one of the most played sports anthems frequently heard at NFL, NBA, MLB & NHL games. It peaked at #9 on Billboard‘s Top Tracks chart upon release–and in 2009, the song achieved a 5× platinum certification. The live tracks–“I Don’t Know,” “Crazy Train,” “Mr. Crowley,” “Revelation (Mother Earth),” “Steal Away (The Night)” and“Suicide Solution”–were recorded on the “Blizzard of Ozz” tour and were previously found only in the BLIZZARD OF OZZ/DIARY OF A MADMAN 30th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set. You Said It All(live) was originally found on the 1980 MR CROWLEY live EP, recorded in 1980 at the Gaumont Theater, Southampton, UK and was also not previously available digitally.
 
Next up are two digital releases of two classic OZZY video releases: LIVE & LOUD and LIVE AT BUDOKAN. The “LIVE & LOUD” home video–originally released on June 28, 1993–was issued alongside the CD. The collection is a compilation of live footage from several shows rather than a single concert. The “LIVE & LOUD” DVD includes guest appearances from OZZY‘s Black Sabbath bandmates (Geezer Butler, bass, Bill Ward, drums and Tony Iommi, guitar), along with his own band from that era (Michael Inez, bass; Randy Castillo, drums; Zakk Wylde, guitar; and Kevin Jones, keyboards). The “LIVE AT BUDOKAN” DVD–released June 25, 2002–was shot earlier that year as part of the 2002 world tour. It features the song “Suicide Solution” and Zakk Wylde‘s accompanying guitar solo. Running in excess of 13 minutes, this track was cut from the CD version because of time restraints. OZZY is backed by his 2002 touring band on “LIVE AT BUDOKAN” DVD: Zakk Wylde, guitars; Robert Trujillo, bass; Mike Bordin, drums; and John Sinclair, keyboards.
 
Meanwhile, earlier this month, A&E Network debuted “Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne” which delves into the many lives and incredible career of the man who has personified rock and roll rebellion for decades. “Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne” traces OZZY‘s life from his childhood in poverty and time in prison, to fronting the iconic Black Sabbath and a successful solo career, to one of rock’s elder statesman and a loveable 21st century television dad. The two-hour documentary explores how OZZY has continually reinvented himself and his career to propel himself toward greater success. As the Grammy-winning artist turns 70, he reflects on the intimate details of his successes, failures, and his unique ability for survival and perseverance–including never-before-seen interviews about his recent Parkinson’s diagnosis. The documentary, a selection of the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, also features interviews with Sharon, Kelly and Jack Osbourne as well as friends and fellow musicians including Rick Rubin, Ice-T, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Jonathan Davis, Post Malone and more. Watch a clip here.

John Kelly was a chief of staff

HARRY SHEARER, as Donald Trump, has just released a new song in a series which runs with a song a week leading up the November election. “I NEVER KNEW HIM” is the seventh track of a song cycle in which the star of “The Simpsons” and “Spinal Tap” explores the often absurd and sometimes sinister vagaries of the presidential mind during his time in office. Listen to the song here and watch the lyric video here.
 
“I NEVER KNEW HIM” has SHEARER as Trump demonstrating that he might not have “one of the greatest memories of all time” as he purges his contact book and airbrushes his history of those who may be an impediment to his ratings. From Stormy, to Kelly, to Rudy and on, “I NEVER KNEW HIM” proves that, in SHEARER‘s words:
 
“A very famous guy has so many people claiming to be his friends or family. It’s always important to clear the air.”
 
The eclectic musical mix features SHEARER on lead vocals as Trump, with backing by Sharlotte Gibson and CJ Vanston, Marc Bonilla on guitar, Toss Panos on drums and CJ Vanston on all other instruments. The track is released by Twanky Records.
 
“I NEVER KNEW HIM” follows the old-school R&B anthem to Jared Kushner SON IN LAW”; the disco/plaintive folk number celebrating Trump’s consistent inconsistency in his approach to the pandemic “COVID-180“; VERY STABLE GENIUSa low-power power-ballad, in which the leader of the free world vaunts his self-proclaimed intellectual prowess combined with his calm and balanced disposition; “STORMY DANIELS,” a romantic ballad of passion, power and pay off; and last week’s ALABAMA,a southern rock style tribute to the state that holds such a special place in Trump’s “heart”; and “NUMBER ONE SON,”Donald Sr.‘s “electric chop suey” paean to his eldest child Donald Jr.
 
HARRY SHEARER has vocally portrayed every U.S. president of his lifetime. Donald Trump is the third he has portrayed physically, having previously played Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan on screen.
 
Harry Shearer says of the series of Trump themed song series:
 
“My Donald Trump is almost as eager for continued public attention as the ‘real’ Trump.”
