FREE EP FROM HIGH DIVE HEART

High Dive Heart (HDH) is a pop duo composed of multi-platinum award winning singer/songwriter Jason Reeves (collaborations with Colbie Caillat, Lenka, Katharine McPhee, Angel Taylor, etc) and Nelly Joy, one-half of the ACM nominated country duo the JaneDear girls. Jason is an ASCAP award wining iTunes Indie Songwriter of the Year, 2007. His album The Lovesick debuted at #5 on the Pop iTunes charts as an indie artist, 2011. Jason has toured with Colbie Caillat and OneRepublic, and more. Nelly has toured with Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and more. Together Jason and Nelly are spreading the message of love, peace and happiness through their upbeat, acoustic pop melodies that some describe as a ‘Romantic Comedy on Tape‘.

Produced by the Grammy-winning Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban), “Vintage” is the first single from the project. It’s quirky sugar pop goodness with a super addicting chorus that immediately demands repeat listens. Also the “Vintage” video is one of the best I’ve seen from a new band in a long time. You can see the chemistry between Jason and Nelly Joy their cove is contagious. Watch the video and download the free EP via Noisetrade below. Stream on Spotify / Buy on iTunes or Amazon

A SONG YOU NEED TO HEAR: SHANNON LABRIE “ALCOHOL”

The first time I heard ‘Alcohol‘ by Shannon LaBrie I became obsessed. I needed to hear it again and again. I couldn’t stop listening. I had it on repeat for weeks. It’s beautifully sad. It punches you in the gut. I think everyone has someone in their life that this song reminds them of. The lyrics are poetic and at the same time very visual. The melody is intoxicating.  And her voice…it doesn’t get better than this. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Adept on the piano and guitar, Shannon LaBrie was “raised on James Taylor and Lauren Hill.” LaBrie’s debut album, Just Be Honest, debuted in the Top Ten of iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart in February 2013. Perhaps the song that has gotten the most attention is “I Remember A Boy,” backed by soulful guitar tones that hint at Daniel Lanois. Bob Lefsetz singled it out in The Lefsetz Letter, noting: “This track affected me. Made me believe like the great singer-songwriters of yore, maybe this woman has something to say. That in this crazy, mixed-up, shook-up world she can illuminate her story and people can relate.”

LaBrie’s debut at Austin City Limits Music Festival earned her several impressive reviews of her live performance. Austin Chronicle raved “LaBrie is a true guitarist and singer/songwriter from Nashville whose soulful voice’s sensual honey-crisp highs brings to mind the late, great Jeff Buckley.”

‘OUR CHRISTMAS WISH A CANCER FREE WORLD’ ALL PROCEEDS GO TO AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY!

christmas cd (1)A compilation of artists from the Sun Coast of Florida and beyond, Studio G presents ‘Our Christmas Wish’ which is for a Cancer Free World!!  Listen to 14 Christmas songs of varied genres that will brighten up any holiday.  All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society! So please buy, stream, and share this album with all your friends!

Imagined from the beginning as a fund raiser, Peter Gatti, the owner of Studio G in Riverview, FL, started with an email to musician friends and family about his idea to have musicians, from the talent rich Sun Coast of Florida to put together a set of songs for Christmas in their own voice.What happened was magic.  Musicians got together and performed differing genres, arrangements, and sounds to compile a group of songs that truly usher in that Christmas spirit.

Purchase the album at www.ourchristmaswish.com or on iTunes and Spotify.

Two of my favorites are a progressive rock version of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” sung by Doug Mock of the Cherry Bombs and “O Holy Night” preformed by speical guest Erick Baker which you can watch below
