BETO_HALE_VPK3[1]

Beto Hale releases Orbs of Light today.  It is his first full-length album since 2012.

 

The songs range in influence from progressive-rock, to Beatles, Bob Dylan, 80’s Pop and Post Punk. They all fit cohesively into one idea and the listener walks away with the deep sense that everything is going to be alright.

 

Orbs of Light is a collection of 10 original songs.  Beto wrote, performed, and co-produced and played drums, percussion, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, keyboards, piano, and sang lead and backing vocals on 90% of the album. It was recorded at Los Olivos Recording Studios, Beto’s new, 2000-sq. ft., state of the art facility in Los Angeles.

 

The lyrics have a positive message meant to counter the current negative atmosphere pervading the news.

 

According to Beto, The title track “Orbs of Light” was originally conceived as a song about hope; amidst the negativity that surrounds us today, it talks about being strong, believing in yourself, no matter how many terrible things you have witnessed or experienced. The Orbs represent the eyes, which in turn reflect ones spirit.

 

Our favorite is “Far Away” which is about a deep love for someone who has left us physically but not spiritually. It’s not about someone who died, but rather about someone who had to go away for some reason. The connection you can hear is is deep, and the singer is expressing not just hope, but certainty that, even in the face of despair, he will still remember and love the one who left.

Macy Todd Releases “Give It Up”

Macy Todd is gearing up to release her sophomore effort “Give It Up.” Channeling the vocal powerhouses that launched her career the first time around. “Give It Up” came to Macy while her longtime producer and collaborator, Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra, A Rocket To The Moon) was recovering from surgery to remove a cancerous lesion from his vocal cords.
While in the hospital, he was told he wasn’t allowed to speak for three days, but couldn’t get the melody (or the idea of Macy singing the track) out of his head. Deciding to break doctors orders, he whisper-sang the single to Macy on a call, and ran right from the hospital to the studio to record it the very day he was discharged.

1403’s newest piece “Come Down” is the perfect way to end the Summer on a high note. Produced by Grammy Award-winning Philadelphia-based producer Joe ‘The Butcher’ Nicolo (Fugees, Billy Joel, Lauryn Hill), “Come Down” is the first track off 1403’s forthcoming album, Tethered and features guest vocals from Cypress Hill’s Sen Dog.

1403, the brainchild of Tom Cameron, is something of a secret weapon, sweetening tracks and adding artistic dimension with his boundless musicality culled from classical music, hip-hop, soul, jazz, blues, rock, indie, pop, and EDM. In this realm, he’s collaborated and created as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer.

Marquee entrees in his resume include writing and collaborating with artists such as Sasha, Disturbing London’s G-FrSH and Cypress Hill, among others. He has also contributed to various film scores and advertising campaigns across a wide range of genres and styles.

Sarah Ragsdale Debuts video for “Ferris Wheel”

 


​Check out the music video for “Ferris Wheel” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2riHybK0Fn0


Sarah Ragsdale writes straight from the heart, and her new video for “Ferris Wheel” is evident of that.  With an eclectic background and her very diverse artistic experience has seen her traveling from Appalachia to West Africa. This has provided a large palate to describe very personal and emotional accounts for herself and others.

Ragsdale has toured and performed live in America, Europe, Asia, and Africa making appearances on major international television networks including BBC World, Univision, France24, and Radio France Internationale.

“Ferris Wheel” comes off Sarah’s upcoming album “Whimsical Romance,” about the romantic story called life, and the ups and downs that come along with it. “Based on true stories, mixed with some fantastical exaggerations, the album covers the vast array of emotions that come along with relationships.” The video is enchanting just like Ragsdale herself.
