His material transcends any preconceived genre restrictions .The ability to dissect genres and infuse sounds, rhythms, lyrics, and melodies from a plethora of musical styles in order to accomplish one single product that can be loved and received by the masses is what separates an average artist, from a superstar; based on what we have heard from STEPHAN, no one does it better than this young up and comer.

Grammy nominated saxophonist Shlomi Cohen releases his debut album – Breather

October 23, 2013 in News by Indie Artist Radio

| Website | YouTube | Facebook | Shlomi CohenThere is a new shooter in the saxophone ranks of modern jazz and his name is Shlomi Cohen. This Tel-Aviv born saxophone phenom currently resides in the jazz Mecca that is New York City and has just released Breather. This stunning digital only recording is a contemporary post modern riff that masterfully fuses Cohen’s Middle Eastern roots with the form and functionality of improvisational music we know as jazz in the United States. Shlomi Cohen elevates what would normally be considered world music into a far more accessible place than previous artists. Cohen does an imaginative spin on his own cultural base and flips it into a hybrid that is the embodiment of blues, R&B, traditional jazz and the deceptively subtle nuances that are his Moroccan and Israeli DNA. Breather is a lyrical mosaic, colors and textures you can hear. Cohen walks a harmonic tightrope with the grace and fluidity of a Michael Brecker and the biting attack of a David Sanborn but all while demonstrating one of the most refreshing saxophone voices to come along in a decade! The transformation of this incredibly imaginative music into a new and highly evocative art form is stunning. There are artists residing in Eastern Europe that perform with a deep identifiable cultural base but you would be hard pressed to find any artist born outside of the United States that has so artistically opened up his own heritage to an entirely new audience. One listen to Breather and it would be apparent to the most discerning of fans that Shlomi Cohen is on the cutting edge, a saxophonist poised for great things and one of the rising stars of the future. Shlomi Cohen is indeed an artist whose musical stock is an arrow pointing straight up.

8 FOOT SATIVANew Zealand’s premier metal band 8 Foot Sativa have risen from the wild west of Auckland becoming a household name and have created Metal history in New Zealand.

The huge success of their three previous albums, national tours, breakthrough chart positions and exposure in the main stream media has never before been seen in this country by a Heavy Metal band. As all 8 Foot Sativa fans are aware, the band have endured some line-up changes and obstacles over the years and yet always come out on top.
With the return of the legendary Justin “Jackhammer” Niessen they’re leaner and hungrier than ever. Industry and band politics will always take a back seat to what is central to the 8 Foot credos; making kick-ass music.

Justin returns straight into an action packed end to 2012 with the release of 8 Foot Sativa’s “Greatest Hits”
8 Foot Sativa on May 11th 2013 snuck into Quicksand Studio to record the heavily anticipated 4th Album.

For this project 8 Foot Sativa have bought in producer Clint Murphy from Modern World Studio in UK to deal with what carnage they have in-store.

The Album is set for release in August 2013 they have titled the new album “The Shadow Masters”.
In 2002 the bands debut album ‘Hate Made Me’ achieved Gold status in New Zealand, putting 8 Foot Sativa at the top of the food chain straight out of the gate.

8 FOOT SATIVA2003’s ‘Season For Assault’ earned five star reviews, entered the album charts at number 6, and made it to number 1 on the independent charts, a first for a Metal band in New Zealand.

In 2005, 8 Foot Sativa released their third album, ‘Breed The Pain’, recorded in Sweden with Studio Underground’s Pelé Saether (Carnal Forge, Flesh crawl).
When questioned on the direction of the new album and where the influence will be drilled from, Smith quoted “The sound since we are back together has automatically formed and with the input from everyone in the band we think the new album will simply be “Kick Ass” Jack lives in Christchurch and travels each week to Auckland for practice and brainstorming with the rest of the band. “We are fresh and focused on where we need to go”.
Jack states “I’m excited to get out on tour with Nik, Brent, Corey and Gary and let shit rip” We have a lot of ground to make up as I have been off the road for some time but when people come to the show they will leave knowing 8 Foot Sativa is back.”
