Jase Lansky – Don’t Go

‘Don’t Go’ is a love song written for anyone who has lived, loved and lost. The song highlights the confusion faced when not understanding the reasoning behind that loss but wanting to capture a better time or provide an alternative solution. It also focuses on the need to open our vulnerabilities to those around us and those that we care about as sometimes our best attributes can also be our worst downfalls – we don’t always need to be a listener.

Jase Lansky is a Queensland based, Australian independent country-rock artist, singer and songwriter raised in the southern parts of Tasmania. He has developed his own style of country music over a number of years from performing and writing songs, and has played everywhere between Hobart and Hamilton Island, and internationally from Bali to Nashville.

Having fronted rock and contemporary bands, as well as duos throughout his musical existence, his path has taken him to the musical depths of Nashville, Tennessee where he recorded his award winning debut album ‘Rip It Up!’. Five singles from this album have been released in Australia to date, with all five enjoying Top 20 chart success both here and overseas. Four of the tracks reached Top 10 status. His first release single ‘Hella Good Time’ from his up and coming second album of the same name hit Number #1 around the country on numerous Country Charts.

Jase has won various awards for his song writing and album release and continues to examine varying styles within this chosen genre. He has performed at numerous festivals around the country, as well as live radio shows, and his music continues to grow along with his audience.

JD Reynolds – Whatever

A true singer, a real songwriter, a neoteric producer, an incredible dancer and striking performer, all wrapped up in a stunning package that could grace the cover of any magazine in the world, and yet, her down to earth country girl charm is what makes this extraordinary artist so real.

JD Reynolds was born an artist. “It’s in my blood. Music, melody, lyrics and dance flow through my veins, gifts straight from God for which I am thankful”. JD’s Mother had Elvis, Michael Jackson, Prince, Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston on daily replay in the house, so JD grew up listening to the King of Rock ‘n Roll, The Prince of Pop, The PRINCE of Everything, The Caruso of Rock, The Queen of Country Music and The Queen of the Night.

JD’s sound is fresh originality for Country music. “My entire album came to me like a bolt of lightning, the JD sound, my sound, respecting Country music roots yet having my own next level twist”. As an up-and-coming producer, JD teamed up with seasoned producer Braddon Williams to co-produce what Country music insiders have nicknamed “The Jagged Little Pill of Country”.

Braddon has achieved more than thirty top-ten hits, amassed over thirty times platinum in record sales, and his work has received both Grammy and ARIA award nominations, credits include Beyoncé, Snoop Dogg, P Diddy, The Script, Kelly Clarkson, and his latest favourite, JD Reynolds.

Braddon knew he was helping to create a unique Country album for an incredible talent. JD Reynolds is her own artist, incomparable, and the album reflects it. Braddon brought in the talents of; Murray Sheridan on drums, whose credits include Pink, Kelly Clarkson, The Script, BoysIIMen and The Vines. Kris Petersen is on guitars and banjo, whose credits include Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Orianthi, Van Halen and Billy Joel. Keyboards – Greg Agar (ARIA Award winner, OSCAR shortlisted, credits include Al Pacino). The intrinsic talents of Chi Ho Choi, an award-winning guitarist that added “banjo magic” heard in JD’s latest tracks.

Luke Lukess, on guitars, credits include The Veronicas, McFly, The Living End, Art vs Science, and Short Stack.

JD’s sound has been mastered by Andrew Mendelson, who has mastered dozens of #1, Grammy winning, gold and platinum projects by artists including The Rolling Stones, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and Willie Nelson.

As a trained dancer and award-winning choreographer, JD needs to dance her own moves as well as sing her own words and melodies. “Dance is a part of who I am, for me, dance is an expression of the soul, expressing what words simply cannot”. The three together have been described as “cutting edge visual poetry.”

Captivating those who hear her and mesmerizing those who see her, JD knows how to make Country sound great and look even better.

Something For Kate – Blue Bird

Legendary Melbourne trio Something for Kate share the video for ‘Blue Bird’, the latest single to be lifted from their Top 5, critically acclaimed album, The Modern Medieval.

Blue Bird, featuring the gorgeous backing vocals of Melbourne songstress, Mia Wray, is a swaggering anthem that celebrates those moments where you find a good friend and a good bar to hide away from the world.

In classic Something For Kate style, where every line speaks volumes and tells a multilayered story with novelistic detail and barbed wit, you can hum along with this glorious bittersweet melody even as the song hits you hard.

“Gonna buy my drink another drink” is another classic Paul Dempsey line in a song brimming with wry observations on modern life.

“Sometimes you have to get he hell off social media and actually go and socialize. This is a song about switching off from all the repetitive, hollow language and actually talking to a friend over several drinks” says Paul Dempsey.

Directed by Alex Badham, the video features two Paul Dempsey clones on a mission to find the real Dempsey in somewhat of a 70’s Australiana Sci Fi day dream/nightmare.

Jason Owen – Thank God I’m A Country Boy

Popular country music recording artist Jason Owen is back with a rollicking version of one of John Denver’s most iconic songs – ‘Thank God I’m a Country Boy’.

The single is the first release from Jason’s new upcoming album – ‘Jason Owen Sings John Denver: The Acoustic Sessions’ which will be released mid-May. The X Factor star will tour nationally with the album from August onwards.

Jason’s new album follows on from the huge success of his first tribute album to John Denver – ‘Jason Owen Sings John Denver: The 20th Anniversary Album’ which spent seven weeks in the ARIA charts. A national followed including shows at The Sydney Opera House.

“I’m probably one of the biggest John Denver fans in the entire country, and have been ever since I was a boy,” says Jason. “The very first song I ever performed on a national stage was the Denver classic ‘Annie’s Song’ when I was first on the X Factor back in 2012. ‘Thank God I’m a Country Boy’ is one of my all-time favourites and is something I have always related to given my country upbringing in Albert, NSW. Plus it’s a great foot-tapping song with a lot of heart!”

In between putting the finishing touches on the album in 2020, Jason used the down-time of social restrictions to make enormous inroads with his charity Doin It for Rural Aussie Kids which supports regional and isolated kids in Australia.

Jason was recently nominated for two awards in the 7News Young Achiever NSW/ACT Awards 2021, which will be announced April 30. He picked up both a Freemasons of NSW/ACT Community Service Award nomination for his charity work, as well as an Ausgrid Indigenous Achievement Award nomination for his commitment to Indigenous communities.

In December last year Jason undertook a gruelling road trip covering 8,000 kms in 10 days across New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia to personally deliver funds, Christmas gifts and groceries to around 800 children at 21 schools affected by bushfires, drought and the fallout of COVID 19. The road trip is an annual initiative and main focus of the charity which Jason established in 2019.

Following his star turn as runner up of the X-Factor, Jason soon launched his debut album ‘Life Is A Highway’ which debuted at number one on the ARIA Country Chart and number five on the Australian National ARIA Chart. He has since released albums ‘Friday Night’ containing his first original hit ‘Damn Right’, as well as ‘Proud’, his first all-originals album celebrating his First Nations background.

Jason is now one of Australia’s most popular country artists having entertained audiences around the country including the Tamworth Country Music Festival, CMC Rocks the Hunter, the ACE Awards and the Sony Foundation’s Wharf4Ward event raising funds for youth cancer care.

Sonny Sandoval is a singer, rapper, and musician from San Diego, California. Sonny’s musical style crosses genres, from rock to hip hop to reggae; he is perhaps best known as the leader singer of Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum band P.O.D.

2/1/21
Honolulu, Hawaii
2x Hawaiian Grammy (Nā Hōkū Hanohano) award-winner Thomas Iannucci and Honolulu-based production team The Brewz have teamed up with Sonny Sandoval, the lead singer of multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated band P.O.D. to release “Rage,” an upbeat, Cali Roots/Hawaiian Hip Pop fusion track that is the perfect way to start the new year.
“With everything going on, we wanted to give people something they could feel inspired by.” said Iannucci in a statement. “And in Hawaii, to ‘rage’ is a pidgin slang term that means ‘to party,’ so we thought it would be cool to take all the ‘rage’ we’re seeing right now in the media and flip it to mean something more positive. That way, we can all ‘rage on!'”
“Rage,” which can be found on Iannucci’s 3rd studio LP, “Doubting Thomas,” is out now.

Jimmie Allen (feat. Brad Paisley) – Freedom Was A Highway

The latest project from Jimmie Allen entitled, “Bettie James”, combines his deep love of family and genre-spanning taste in music. The star-studded collaboration project is a seven-track EP – released July 2020 – that features a wide array of music hitmakers: Brad Paisley, Charley Pride, Darius Rucker, Mickey Guyton, Nelly, Cyrus, The Oak Ridge Boys, Rita Wilson, Tauren Wells & Tim McGraw.

The EP’s title is a tribute to Allen’s late grandmother, Bettie Snead, who passed away in February 2014 and his late father, James Allen, who passed away in September 2019. “My dad and grandmom were two completely different people, but both played a huge part in my life,” Allen says of the motivation for the project. “Since they died, I have been wanting to leave trails of their legacies throughout my music.”

Each artist on the project has touched the life of Allen, his grandmother and father in some way, allowing their legacies to weave seamlessly throughout “Bettie James”. The result is a musical composition of love, heartbreak, perseverance, hope and faith. Jimmie’s current single “Freedom Was A Highway” pairs Allen with his friend and Country music superstar Paisley for a breezy, windows down track that joins Allen’s distinctively breezy grooves with a Paisley signature guitar solo. The two trade lyrics inspired by Allen’s upbringing in Delaware and reminisce over the nostalgia of more carefree, youthful days where simpler moments like innocent childhood crushes reigned supreme.

“Bettie James” has garnered 120+ million streams since its release, along with critical acclaim for the music, the historic nature of various collaborations, and its subsequent place in country music history. NPR calls the project an “announcement of [Allen’s] arrival” and a “huge step for country” while Billboard hails it “a powerful statement from a developing voice.” The EP appeared on several “Best of 2020” lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone and Sounds Like Nashville.

Rolling Stone describes “Why Things Happen” – which brings together three generations of Black country artists in Allen, Darius Rucker and Charley Pride – as “part polemic, part proclamation, and part prayer… opening up space for the artists to bear witness.”

Reflecting on Allen’s wide-ranging musical sensibilities, Music Row notes of the project: “While some artists still in the early sunrise of their careers, with a handful of hits to their credit, would be focused solely on extending their chart successes, it’s clear that Allen’s goals for his music are loftier than mere chart hits and No. 1 parties-he’s striving for music that testifies to his full spectrum of creative abilities.”

On July 13, 2021, Allen will publish his debut picture book, My Voice Is a Trumpet, with Flamingo Books, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers. Illustrated by veteran illustrator Cathy Ann Johnson, the book is a powerful story about speaking up for what you believe in, at any age. In My Voice Is a Trumpet, all voices are as diverse as the characters and heard loud and clear – from voices that roar like a lion, to voices small as a bee, all it takes is confidence and a belief in the goodness of others to change the world. “It’s very important to me that kids learn at a young age that they have a voice, and that it is powerful. It is up to us as adults to teach them to use their voice to encourage and show love,” Allen says of his first ever book. “Being a father of two kids, I try to encourage them to be themselves and love everyone around them. I’m hoping this book inspires at least one child and they always remember their voice is a trumpet.”
