Emma Cairo Passionate Country Rock Singer

April 18, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

Emma CairoEmma Cairo Release
“Southern Songs from the North”
I am a passionate country rock singer, residing in Los Angeles, yet I am originally from Denmark, Scandinavia,
The tranquil darkness and melancholy of the North is the backdrop of my music. I mix it with the emotional and feisty temper of the South. Along with a profound love for the US, this creates my soundscape. And, now, the time has come to share it with the world! I have just released my EP, Southern Songs from the North.

 

After having toured in Asia and the Middle East, I realized that we are all flakes of dust in an infinite universe. This realization filled me with inspiration and love for the universe and for music – the magical vibrations of the cosmos. The art of controlling these vibrations is my calling.
I am often referred to as “The Uncrowned Viking Princess of Country Music.” However, I plead for your help in retrieving my actual crown! Even princesses need exposure.
Your services to the crown will not go unnoticed!
Sincerely,
Emma Cairo

 

STARTR3K JONES to Release His First Single, ALIEN

February 25, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

| Website | Facebook | Twitter |

STARTR3KJON3SDC’s premier rock/alternative pop/hip-hop recording artist & songwriter STARTR3K JONES will release his first single, ALIEN, from his highly anticipated debut album BEYOND, which is expected to be released in mid spring 2014. ALIEN, which will be released everywhere music is sold worldwide under independent DC-based record label Itrinity(e) Music Group, falls more on Startr3k’s hip hop spectrum and will have its listeners dancing in the club.
When asked about his inspiration behind ALIEN, Startr3k had this to say “The inspiration behind Alien came from people’s misperception of me. So many people assumed that I wouldn’t be able to produce a song like Alien, let alone execute it then keep rolling with the punches. I made Alien for all the people that underestimated me. I also gathered inspiration from people who told me to be the best at whatever I do and by being different my music harder to replicate.
A lot of artists just stick to one sound and stay in that same box.  I’m an artist; I create best with no limits and no boundaries.I want and need I have a tenacity to be different. I need my music to be a platform for real talent. I’m here to set the bar HIGHER. This is no longer an earthly issue; this has become a war in the cosmos. Dare to be different.  I did….”
”I’m taking particularly sensitive care with this project and artist Startr3k Jones.. “ says Itrinity(e)’s CEO, Dwight “Turbo” Dillard “so much so that I’m hand picking specific collaborative artists for Startr3k Jones’ new album ‘Beyond’, which is slated for release in early spring 2014 and features Fat Trel, David Correy and many more well known artists”.

Featured Soul Artist Jerry Adams

Jerry Adams“Brown-eyed Country Soul”
A mix of soul, country, and R&B, Jerry Adam’s music is singular among today’s vast music scene. Adams’ smooth personality is exemplified by his continually evolving sound with influences he attributes to The Temptations, Marvin Gay, and Otis Redding. He refers to his timbre as “brown-eyed country soul”. Growing up in Cleveland County, NC, Adams molded his voice while singing to himself in hot cotton fields and participating in local talent competitions. Many of his family members were in the entertainment industry themselves, and Adams says this played a big role in his attraction to the music business. His mother, Ruby Guyton Adams, sang in church choirs and his father Odell Adams, played a
role in the gospel movement in the South. Adams himself now has eight children and holds tight to strong family values.

In 2005 Adams quit his job as an independent paralegal to pursue his dream as a performer. After frequently performing at school functions through elementary and high school, and occasionally singing at night clubs – “when his mama gave me permission”, laughs Adams- the singer/songwriter tapered off his musical endeavors. During and after his time attending Gardner-Webb University, Adams made very few performances, but was eventually called back by the allure of the stage. He hopes to one day walk the red carpet at the Grammys, and sing with a few stars along the way.

In May, Adams performed at the Evening Muse in Charlotte, NC and was asked by the crowd and venue owners to return in June as the headliner. Adams currently has three original tracks and one full length album released titled “Send a Letter”. He has performed several of his songs for “Cleveland County Idol Search” and is preparing for more performances in the future. On June 15th, Jerry was selected to perform at the 2013 Pop Rock Country Extravaganza in Charlotte, NC. In regards to his accomplishments, Adams laughs and says, “I just sing”.

STEPHAN (Surf Rap) RELEASES NEW SINGLE: ” PARADISE”

October 24, 2013 in News by Indie Artist Radio

Website | Twitter | YouTube | Facebook |

Surf RapIn this day and age to progress, and to achieve success as a musician, means to experiment and make music that anyone and everyone can enjoy. Stephan Cohen, artist name STEPHAN, truly embodies the modern day artist. 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.

Hailing from sunny Miami Beach, one of the true melting pots of the world, STEPHAN allows his French and Colombian roots to shine through while delivering Hip Hop lyrics reminiscent of classic east coast Hip Hop. His strong ties to the ocean and Surfing are absorbed by the sounds and lyrics in his music, making for a truly unique listening experience. Over the past year STEPHAN has been hard at work, putting out four mix tapes and releasing his first official music video entitled “Surf Rap Life”. His intense productivity and commitment to his music is paying off; the first video received over 100k views in the first month alone.

Young, Fun, and Handsome, expect to see big things STEPHAN, who has plans to release an EP, an album, and tour nationally by the end of 2014.

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.
