ERIC CHURCH GARNERS ACM NOMINATIONS FOR ALBUM OF THE YEAR AND VIDEO OF THE YEAR
 
Blood, Sweat & Beers Arena Tour Sets First Week Venue Records
 
Nashville, Tenn. (Thursday, January 26, 2012) – Eric Church surprised fans at the 2011 ACM Awards with his Awards show performance debut of his hit “Smoke A Little Smoke” from the RIAA Certified Gold sophomore release, Carolina.  Many speculated it was the start of incredible things to come for the EMI Records Nashville singer, and they were right.  Additional milestones soon followed: No. 1 album debut on the Top 200 Billboard charts with CHIEF, his first-ever GRAMMY nomination for Album of the Year, his first No. 1 single with “Drink In My Hand,” which was recently RIAA Certified Gold, and now, his first industry-voted ACM nominations for Album of The Year for CHIEF and Video of The Year for "Homeboy."
 
"I've never minced words about the fact that my passion is making great records for the sake of the music," says Church.  "The fact that the ACM's have nominated us for the album category is quite the honor and frankly the one I revere the most.  "Homeboy," both musically and visually, is a song that tells a compelling story.  I have a very special place in my heart for the video, and  I'm very grateful that it is getting recognized.  It's been one hell of a year!"
 
Turning heads out on his first-ever headlining arena tour, Eric Church: The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour, Church is seemingly on fire right now when it comes to inching closer to achieving sought-after megastar success.  He set venue records in Southaven, MS over the weekend with a record attendance for a show in that arena – beating a record previously set with his performance alongside Jason Aldean. After witnessing his live show, the Los Angeles Times said, “Vehement… propelled further still by the voices of his fans singing along.” Followed by the Oakland Tribune who said, “[Church is] arguably the hottest artist in country these days… this guy’s a major talent and soon to be one of country’s premier stars.”
 
To purchase tickets for Eric Church: The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour, which includes special guest Brantley Gilbert, visit www.ericchurch.com. VIP Packages are also available for fans that want to experience an up-close, exclusive backstage acoustic concert.
 
The ACM Awards winner for the Album of the Year and Video of The Year categories will be announced LIVE on CBS on Sunday, April 1 at 7 p.m. CT / 8 p.m. ET.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Look Around
VÖ: 16.03.2012
Sie müssen niemandem mehr etwas beweisen. Sie haben alles erreicht – und werden in Kürze noch mit weiteren Ehrungen bedacht. So sind die Red Hot Chili Peppers auch im Jahr 2012 wieder für einen Grammy nominiert, diesmal in der Kategorie „Best Rock Album“ für ihr mitreißendes, zehntes Werk „I’m With You“, das derzeit an der magischen Grenze von zwei Millionen verkauften Einheiten steht. Noch aufregender dürften indes die Ferierlichkeiten Mitte April werden, wenn die Red Hot Chili Peppers in die „Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame“ aufgenommen werden. Zu dem Event wird nicht nur die aktuelle Besetzung der Band erscheinen – mit Cliff Martinez und Jack Irons haben bereits zwei ehemalige Mitstreiter ihre Teilnahme zugesagt, und auch John Frusciante wird erwartet, um ein letztes Mal die Bühne mit der Band zu teilen. Sie könnten sich also in Ruhe zurücklehnen und ihre Erfolge genießen. Stattdessen versüßen sie uns den Winter mit „Look Around“, der dritten Single-Auskopplung aus ihrem aktuellen Album, das in 18 Ländern bis auf Platz 1 der Charts stieg. „Look Around“ beinhaltet wieder einmal alles, was man an den Chili Peppers seit Jahrzehnten schätzt: Peitschende Drums und bruddelnde Funk-Bässe, ein lässiges Gitarrenlick und eine dieser Anthony Kiedis-Melodien, die sich unmittelbar im Gehörgang festsetzen. „Look Around“ ist damit ein gelungener Vorbote auf den hoffentlich bald nahenden Frühling. Dann wird das kalifornische Quartett auch wieder auf Tournee sein, nachdem die aktuelle US-Tour leider verschoben werden musste: Anthony Kiedis ließ sich zum Jahreswechsel endlich einmal den Fuß richten, den er sich auf der „Stadium Arcadium“-Tour ruiniert hatte. Gleich mehrere Operationen ließ er über sich ergehen, um zum Frühjahr wieder vollauf hergestellt zu sein. Entsprechend vorfreudig darf man ihrem einzigen deutschen Arena-Konzert entgegen blicken, wenn die Red Hot Chili Peppers bei der Premiere des neuen Ein-Tages-Festivals „Rock im Pott“ am 25. August in der Arena auf Schalke den Headliner-Posten bekleiden.
Radiodate der neuen Single ist der 27. Januar, das Video kann man bereits ab dem 25. Januar sehen. Die Single selber erscheint sodann am 16. März.
Y'akoto
Diamonds
VÖ: 16.03.2012
ARTE nennt sie ‘eine musikalische Sensation’, für Max Herre ist sie ‘ein Talent, das man alle 10 Jahre einmal trifft, wenn überhaupt’. Selten sind einer deutschen Künstlerin nach Veröffentlichung nur einer EP so viele Vorschusslorbeeren zuteil geworden wie der erst 24-jährigen Deutsch-Ghanaerin Y’akoto. Live hat sie bereits bei Shows mit u.a. Erykah Badu, Joy Denalane, Nneka, den Fantastischen Vier, Paolo Conte oder Asa überzeugt, am 23. März erscheint nun ihr Debütalbum ‚Babyblues‘, produziert mit Mocky, Haze und dem Produzenten-Team Kahedi - eine großartige Sammlung von tiefen Songs, die sie allesamt selbst geschrieben und komponiert hat. Das positiv-hookige ‚Diamonds‘ ist dazu die 1. Singleauskopplung - eine Aufforderung, die eigenen Talente und Möglichkeiten zu entdecken und sein Leben bewusst in die Hände zu nehmen.
Irma
Letter To The Lord
VÖ: 27.01.2012
Beeinflusst von Alben wie Ben Harpers „Live From Mars“, das sie von ihrer Mutter geschenkt bekam, oder Eric Claptons „Change The World“ aus der väterlichen Plattensammlung, begann Irma 2007, mit diverse Coverversionen auf YouTube auf sich aufmerksam zu machen. Mit dem verwackelten Schwarzweiß-Clip von „Letter To The Lord“ postete sie das erste eigene Stück, mit gigantischem Feedback. „Dieser Song beschreibt eigentlich die Suche nach Inspiration. Ich schreibe dem Herrn einen Liebesbrief, in dem ich ihn ganz freundlich um ein paar Ideen für tolle Akkorde bitte“ geht Irma ganz unverhohlen mit ihrem tief verankerten Glauben um.
Wohl niemand konnte im Vorfeld erahnen, dass Irma schon mit der zweiten geposteten Eigenkomposition, der fragilen Klavierballade „Somehow“ eine wahre Hysterie um ihre Person auslöste. Schon bald erhielt sie begeisterte Emails von Produzenten, die ihre Dienste anboten. So auch von My Major Company, die sofort dem Charme ihrer ersten Single „I Know“ erlagen. An nur einem Wochenende konnte die bis dato noch unbekannte Schönheit 416 potenzielle Internet-Co-Producer für sich gewinnen und in nicht einmal 48 Stunden die nötigen 70.000 € sammeln, die sie für die Aufnahme ihres nun vorliegenden Erstlings benötigte. „Es war einfach unglaublich“, merkt man Irma auch heute noch die Aufregung an. „Eigentlich hatten wir damit gerechnet, mindestens fünf Monate zu brauchen, bis wir das Geld zusammen hätten. Es ging so schnell, das hat mich wirklich umgehauen!“
Patrizio Buanne
Wunderbar
VÖ: 27.01.2012
Warner Music präsentiert international recording artist PATRIZIO BUANNE mit seinem neuen Musikalbum zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache. Das Album trägt den Namen „Wunderbar“ und wird am 27. Januar 2012 veröffentlicht.
 Mit siebzehn Jahren sang er für den Papst Johannes Paul II, im Oktober 2006 für den US-Präsidenten George W. Bush und selbst die königliche Familie aus England nahm sein Ausnahmetalent und seine Qualitäten in Gesang und Stimme in Anspruch. Viele internationale Stars wie beispielsweise Sophia Loren, Tom Jones, Bon Jovi und Larry King sind bekennende Fans von PATRIZIO BUANNE. Mit seinem ersten Album „The Italian“ stürmte PATRIZIO bereits 2005 in die weltweiten Verkaufscharts. Binnen weniger Wochen erlangte dieses Album Goldstatus in Großbritannien (TOP 10 Album), Österreich und Finnland; Platin in Neuseeland, Hongkong, Singapur, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan; Doppelplatin in Südafrika (Platz 1) und sogar 3-fach Platin in Australien (Platz 1). Auch die zwei nachfolgenden Alben 2007 „Forever begins tonight“ und 2009 „Patrizio“ platzierten sich umgehend in die TOP 5 der genannten Landes- und Verkaufscharts (Platz 5 der US-Charts) und wurden nicht nur mit Gold und Platin ausgezeichnet, sondern sicherten ihm bis heute jedes Jahr eine Tour mit Orchester und Band in ausverkauften Häusern wie der Royal Albert Hall, der Oper in Sydney, dem Chicago Theatre oder dem Lincoln Centre in New York. 
Über die Jahre hat PATRIZO BUANNE, nun bis dato weltweit mehrere Millionen CDs verkauft und hat seine italienisch-englischen Hits auch in mehreren Sprachen aufgenommen (Japanisch, Chinesisch, Spanisch, Afrikaans, Polnisch...) und ist ein international gefeierter Künstler.

Steel Guitar News January 25th 2012

Hello fellow players,

I’d like to start this newsletter off by thanking all our disc jockey friends that play the kind of music we love. Country music can be pretty well found anywhere, but western swing is pretty hard to dig up. Steel players everywhere have a friend in deejay Mike Gross in the northeast United States that has a country western internet music show that everyone can enjoy.

Mike is an extremely steel guitar conscious guy that MCs steel guitar shows wherever he gets close enough to one to do so. I really like to pick on Mike because he has a real hard New England accent and I’m very used to hearing southwestern accents in the western swing field. Mike does a wonderful job and I would highly advise that you listen to his show.

While watching RFD out of Branson, Missouri, a young steel guitar playing friend of mine took a nice solo on a song called Diggy Diggy Low. His name is Tyler Hall and he is a freakishly wonderful young player. Tyler has a wonderful career ahead of him and I’m wishing him well, however I’m not sure he’s going to be needing my well wishing the way he plays.

A few minutes later I called my store from my easy chair at home and heard steel guitar in the background, so I asked my secretary who was playing. She said, “Oh, it’s that Tyler Hall again.”

I thought to myself, boy I just can’t get away from this guy, but after hearing a little more, I decided I didn’t want to get away from him. He’s a wonderful player and even nicer person. It’s nice to see Tyler and Eddie Dunlap hanging around together. It reminds me of Jimmy Day and Buddy Emmons and their friendship fifty five years ago.

It seems to be easier to learn steel guitar if you have someone there to compete with at every turn because every time one of you learns something, the other one can learn it as well.

It’s pretty nice having this store as I catch myself learning from others and having them learn from me. I remember back when steel guitar was first becoming a popular instrument. Players didn’t do this. They hoarded their knowledge which hurt everybody.

I remember I could always ask the great pros any questions and have them answered immediately. It was the fellow amateurs that were very tight with their limited knowledge that had the attitude “I’m not going to help anybody.” I can see today that the future of steel guitar could be very bleak if we don’t do a better job of playing and sharing knowledge about it.

I’ve heard several bandleaders say, “I don’t need one of those whiny effects machines in my band. If I don’t hire one, it leaves me more room to hire a musical instrument.” This really irks me because these guys don’t realize a good steel player can play parts, instrumentals, great fills and intros and also great rhythm if asked to do so. Also remember, steel guitar has no limitations, the player does.

When somebody tells me they don’t want a steel guitar in their band, what they are really saying is they don’t want somebody that can’t play steel guitar in their band and unfortunately most of them don’t even know what a steel guitar is supposed to sound like. They don’t realize what an asset steel guitar can be in the hands of a talented player.

So if you’re having trouble getting a job, there might be a very good chance that some below average player has muddied the water up ahead of you. If you’re a good player, keep learning more. If you’re not, work harder. You can’t blame steel guitar for not working.

Sometimes it’s a band leader that doesn’t realize how good the steel player is because he’s never even heard a good player. That’s when they make remarks like “I don’t want one of these whiny things in my band.”

If he had a player like Curly Chalker blow him off the bandstand one night with big chords and playing any song that was ever written and then turn around and play a fast single string solo that’s fast enough to show the lead player up badly, there would be no excuse not to hire a steel player.

As most of you realize, there are many bands today that are on television that have steel players with very questionable talent. These guys are not doing much to forward the name of steel guitar. The best thing we can do as players is get to where we play much better and root them out of their cushy jobs. This can be done with good personality and great playing.

We cannot expect to work and make good money and be that famous guy like we all look up to if we don’t buckle down and learn what the three Ts are. Taste, tone and timbre. Remember the three Ts, play the right thing at the right time, don’t pump your volume pedal and make everybody proud of you.

Even though a lot of this week’s newsletter has been aimed at the professional players, it applies to everyone that plays in a band and takes money for what he or she is doing. Being nice to everyone in the band including the band leader and club owner is as important as what you play.

Even though you may have to grit your teeth real hard to do it at times, every one of you are important to me as is your job and overall career behind steel guitar. Count on me for anything I can do for you.

We have free shipping within the continental United States on any guitar you buy between now and the end of February.

Check out our monthly specials at http://www.steelguitar.net/monthlyspecials.html and we’ll try to save you a lot of money.

Interview with Jeremy Steding

Interview with Jeremy Steding

Lamitschka:  Music has many new fans throughout Europe who may be hearing about you for the first time. How woulduence o you describe yourself and the music you play to someone who has never seen or heard you?

Jeremy Steding  I describe my music as “Vintage Country, Fried in Americana Batter”  I have been influenced by Country artists such as Johnny Cash and Buck Owens, as well as great folk songwriters, like John Prine and Robert Earl Keen.  Of course, I could go on for days about all the wonderful music that has inspired and affected me over the years!

Lamitschka:  How was the last year for you? What were your highlights?

Jeremy Steding  2011  was a very good year for me, I created and released my third albm, “I Keep on Livin’, but I don’t Learn”, by Walt Wilkins.  Concert attendance icreased dramatically.  We also did our first international release, sending this album to the Euro-Americana Chart, where we charted at #17 in October 2011.  It was a great year!

Lamitschka:  What is your latest CD and how's it doing?

Jeremy Steding  I Keep on Livin’, but I don’t Learn is doing very well!  The album has reached larger audiences than ever before and the reception has been absolutely fantastic.

Lamitschka:  Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go about finding the songs for your CD?

Jeremy Steding  I am a songwriter, and wrote or co-wrote all but one song on the new album.  The only cover was by a hero of mine, Johnny Cash.  The one cool thing that comes out of conflict is art.  Through a very difficult relationship period in my life, I was able to come up with my favorite song yet, “Arkansas Rain”.

Lamitschka:  What is the difference between your last CD and your current one?

Jeremy Steding   I believe I reached a new level of maturity as a singer and songwriter.

Lamitschka:  How much creative control do you have over your music?

Jeremy Steding  As an independent artist, I am blessed to have full creative control over my music.  I have created as I have wished and intend to continue to do so!

Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music scene versus its post and where do you see it going in the future?

Jeremy Steding I think the fans and artists are truly blessed today to be able to reach one another.  What we are seeing is a seperation of the masses and those who truly take the time to seek out music that specifically interests them.

I am a huge fan of the music of the past, and I personally tend to prefer vintage artists.  I believe that the music business of the past is gone.   I think, in today’s music scene, there will be less people getting filthy rich and more people able to share their music.
I believe that the future will continue with the trends we are seeing now.  MUSICALLY, I hope to see a resurgence of artistry and performance on organic instruments.  The organic, live show is the future!

Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music industry?

Jeremy Steding  As a new artist, it is the only one I have ever known, so I am just damn grateful to be a part of it!

Lamitschka:  As an artist, you so many tasks such as recording, touring, interviews. What do you like best, what's your favorite activity?

Jeremy Steding  The live show is king!  When the band is on point and the audience is into the show, there is absolutely no better feeling in the world.

Lamitschka:  Are you doing anything to take music beyond its current borders or are you happy where it is?

Jeremy Steding  I’m always working hard to grow, artistically and professionally.  I am very excited to take my music to Europe for the first time in Summer 2012!  This is mostly going to be an acoustic tour, planting seeds to bring the full band the next year!

Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become an artist?

Jeremy Steding  I believe I was born one.

Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become a songwriter?

Jeremy Steding  Honestly, I just started doing it.  I always loved art and I loved writing.

Lamitschka:  What's unique about you that will differentiate you from other artists?

Jeremy Steding  I’m a black sheep, I always have been.  Everything is just a little off-center with me.  I sing a little different, I write a little different.  I don’t tend to fit the mold, so I make one for myself!

Lamitschka:  What moments in your career stand out in your memory as highlights and achievements which you are proud of?

Jeremy Steding  Sharing the stage with Clint Black was very cool, but there are too many to begin!

Lamitschka:  Who is your biggest critic, yourself or others?

Jeremy Steding  Me, by far.  It is a constant battle with myself!

Lamitschka:  Many European fans travel to the United States to attend the several of the music festivals for the opportunity to see so many of their favorite artists, bands and celebrities. Will you be participating and how will the fans be able to find you?

Jeremy Steding  We have a very busy performance schedule and make sure to list all dates at:  www.jeremysteding.com

Lamitschka:  When you're on tour, do you have time to play tourist?

Jeremy Steding  Absolutely!  Travel is one of my biggest hobbies, and my favorite part of this job.  I love to experience other cultures, taste other foods, drink different beers!  I love the experience!

Lamitschka:  Do fans mob you everywhere you go or do they respect your privacy?

Jeremy Steding  For the most part, fans are very cool, respectful people.  Most just want to share a kind word and say hello.

Lamitschka:  Many music fans today get their information about artists online. Do you have your own website and what will fans find there?

Jeremy Steding  Music, Pictures, Tour Dates!  www.jeremysteding.com

Lamitschka:  Tell us about the fan club and how people can join it.

Jeremy Steding  People can sign up for the mailing list, and opt to be a part of the street team, via the website!

Lamitschka:  What message would you like to send your European fans?

Jeremy Steding  Let’s have a cold beer in the summer of 2012!  I am booking extensive tour dates, all of which can be found at:  www.jeremysteding.com

"Technology.  You can't live with it, you can't live without it," jokes Eddie Montgomery. "But we're really proud of this video and the message that goes along with it, so it's important to upload it again for our friends out there." 
"Maybe we can beat the 1.3 million views," adds Troy Gentry. "Here's hoping our friends will check it out again and leave us some more great comments.  We love hearing from everybody.  We just got an email today from a guy in a small town in SC that a national media outlet made out to be just a bunch of "rednecks".  He made his own video showing the pride in their hometown.  We really love that people relate to this song in so many ways.”
Directed by Potsy Ponciroli and produced by Chris Conner from Team Genius Productions, the video was shot in a California desert and a rock quarry in Nashville, TN.  Working closely with the video treatment, Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry wanted to honor the troops and the towns “where they come from.”  The video opens with a battlefield scene with a wounded soldier laying on the ground.  While his fellow soldiers try to rescue him, he is having flashbacks and memories of his beloved hometown. 
“Where I Come From” is the lead single from Montgomery Gentry's new album, Rebels On The Run, released on their new label home, Average Joes Entertainment.

About Shawna Russell: 

Shawna Russell released her self-titled sophomore album on Way Out West Records in June 2011. Co-produced by Julian King (Grammy-winning engineer for Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith), along with Clif Doyal & Tim Russell, 'SHAWNA RUSSELL' has won critical praise from Billboard.com, Roughstock, Maverick, Music News Nashville, Today's Country and the Oklahoma Gazette, among others. Russell wrote - or co-wrote - the 10 songs on the project. She is currently promoting the album's second single "Waitin' On Sunrise." In addition to the album's first single and video "Get Right Or Get Left," Russell released two singles in Europe in 2011, including "Sounds Like A Party" which climbed to #3 on the Hotdisc chart and "Everybody's Got A Story" which held down the #1 spot for two weeks in a row on the New Christian Music Charts in September.

In addition to writing, recording and performing, Russell is also a co-owner of her Nashville-based label, Way Out West Records, who recently signed up-and-coming Country band LiveWire.

Russell first came on to the national and international music scene with the release of her debut album, 'GODDESS' in 2008. Critical acclaim followed: the CMA named her "Who New to Watch," and top music critics weighed in with praise for her debut. Chris Neal of COUNTRY WEEKLY gave 'GODDESS' a 3 ½ star review, MUSIC ROW's Robert K. Oermann bestowed a "DISCovery Award," his highest compliment to a new artist, and rave reviews followed from CMA CLOSE UP, MAVERICK (UK), NASHVILLE MUSIC GUIDE, DREAMWEST (France), THE OKLAHOMAN, MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE, COUNTRY STARS ONLINE and others. Three radio singles from the album including "Goddess," "Should've Been Born With Wheels" and "Fire In The Desert" cemented her status as a contender, with action on the Billboard "New and Active,' MusicRow and Texas Music Charts. Russell's debut video "Should've Been Born With Wheels" reached the #1 position on the "Ya'llturnative" chart at Ya'll Wire.com and stayed there for over a month and also attracted fans at CMT.com, AFN, GAC.com (debuted at #3 as a "Top Pick") and on Pulse Network Television ("Top 20 Country Chart" for 3 months).

The OWN THE NIGHT 2012 WORLD TOUR is an extension of last year’s critically acclaimed OWN THE NIGHT 2011 TOUR.  Of the show, the Sioux City Journal said, “They had some of the best staging we've seen in years. Songs flowed effortlessly; visuals enhanced just about everything,” while the Arizona Republic hailed the trio’s “impressive vocals and energetic stage presence.”

Fresh off celebrating their No. one hits “We Owned The Night” and “Just A Kiss” in Nashville this week, the trio's third single "Dancin' Away With My Heart" off their GRAMMY nominated, PLATINUM album OWN THE NIGHT has cracked the Top 20 on the country radio charts in just three weeks.

Metallica
Beyond Magnetic
Im vergangenen Dezember feierten sie gemeinsam mit Freunden und Fans ihr 30-jähriges Jubiläum: Metallica spielten vier exklusive Shows im Fillmore Theatre in San Francisco und wurden dabei von Special Guests wie Lou Reed, Ozzy Osbourne, Marianne Faithful, Kid Rock und vielen anderen unterstützt. Fans aus der ganzen Welt waren angereist, um mit Metallica zu feiern.

In dieser Woche folgt ein weiteres Highlight: Metallica veröffentlichen die „Beyond Magnetic“ EP. „Beyond Magnetic” ist seit dem 12. Dezember 2011 digital erhältlich und wird am  27. Januar auch als CD veröffentlicht.

Während der Aufnahmen zum 'Death Magnetic' Album im Jahre 2007 und 2008 haben wir eigentlich 14 Songs aufgenommen. Als es Zeit war, die Songs für das Album auszuwählen, haben wir uns für 10 Songs entschieden, die ihr alle in den letzten drei Jahren kennengelernt habt“, erklären Metallica. „(...)  Vielleicht haben sich einige gefragt, was aus den anderen geworden ist. Das Geheimnis wird nun gelüftet. Hier sind die vier übrig gebliebenen Tracks der Death Magnetic Sessions. Es sind Rough-Mixes, unvollendete Mixe im Vergleich zu dem Grad der Mixe vom März 2008. Diese vier Songs wurden zunächst als ein Geschenk an unsere engsten Fans, den Mitgliedern unseres Fan Clubs, veröffentlicht. Nun werden sie für Euch alle verfügbar gemacht.“

Madonna
Madonna - Neuer Kinofilm "W.E." nominiert für einen Oscar + Soundtrack erscheint am 10. Februar
Nach dem Golden Globe Award für den Besten Song ("Masterpiece"), ist Madonnas Kinofilm "W.E." auch bei den Oscars im Rennen um eine Auszeichnung ("Beste Kostüme"). Bevor in diesem Jahr ihr 12. Album „MDNA“ erscheinen wird - den Titel verriet Madonna vor kurzem auf dem roten Teppich - gilt alle Aufmerksamkeit ihrem neuen Film „W.E.“ und dem dazugehörigen Soundtrack. Dieser wird am 10. Februar veröffentlicht.

Mit „W.E.“ erzählt Madonna die skandalträchtige Geschichte über den englischen König Edward VIII., der 1936 aus Liebe zur geschiedenen Wallis Simpson auf den Thron verzichtete und damit eine Verfassungskrise heraufbeschwor. Zuständig für die Film-Musik ist der polnische Komponist Abel Korzeniowski, der auch schon die Filmmusik für „A Single Man“ (Tom Ford) schrieb und dafür eine Golden Globe Nominierung bekam. Der Kinofilm kommt am 05. Juli in die deutschen Kinos.

Mitten in der Award-Saison (Grammys, Spirit Awards, Oscars) wird Madonna am 05. Februar noch für ein ganz besonderes Highlight sorgen, wenn sie die Halbzeit-Show des Super Bowl bestreiten wird. Für alle Fans der Queen of Pop wird 2012 ein mehr als aufregendes Jahr!

Dionne Bromfield
Dionne Bromfield - Exklusives Radiokonzert am 07. Februar in Berlin
Dionne Bromfield überzeugt mit ihrer gefühlvollen Stimme und massiven Soulgewalt, die man von einem Teenager kaum erwarten würde. Sie ist die Patentochter von Amy Winehouse und trägt den Soul in sich. Im jungen Alter von nur 16 Jahren veröffentlicht sie - nach ihrem Debütalbum "Introducing Dionne Bromfield"- bereits ihr zweites Studioalbum "Good For The Soul". Das Album wurde u.a. mit Produzentengröße Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Rihanna) aufgenommen und bringt das Stimmorgan der smarten Dionne makellos zur Geltung.

Am 07. Februar ist Dionne Bromfield mit ihrer Band in Berlin, um einige Songs ihres am 03. Februar erscheinenden Albums "Good For The Soul" live zu präsentieren.

DIONNE BROMFIELD live

Hier einige Auszüge auf den ersten Reaktionen auf das neue Werk der Britin:

„In Bromfields Musik ist Amy Winehouse mindestens so lebendig, wie auf ihrem eigenen neuen Album.Neon

„Die erst 15jährige hat eine Wahnsinnsstimme.Bild am Sonntag

„Aus der wird was.GQ

„Dionnes gelungenes Album ‚Good For The Soul’ hat darüber hinaus den typischen Soul von Amys Platten.Gala

M.I.A.
M.I.A. veröffentlicht neues Album bei Universal Music + Erste Single "Bad Girls" erscheint am 03. Februar
M.I.A. ist der Künstlername der englischen Sängerin mit sri lankischen Wurzeln Mathangi „Maya“ Arulpragasam und steht sowohl für die Abkürzung „Missing In Action“, als auch für „Missing In Acton“, einem Londoner Stadtteil, in dem sie früher lebte.

Ihre Musik lässt sich schwer einer einzigen Musikrichtung zuordnen. Sie liegt zwischen Hip-Hop, Dancehall, Grime und Electro. Ihr neues Album erscheint im Sommer bei Interscope/ Universal, die erste Singleauskopplung „Bad Girls“ wird bei uns ab dem 03. Februar als Download erhältlich sein. Dann wird es auch das Video zu dem Song zu sehen geben.

In der Vergangenheit arbeitete sie bereits mehrmals mit dem US-amerikanischen Musiker und DJ Diplo zusammen - so zum Beispiel auf dem Album „Arular“, das ihr einen ersten Achtungserfolg bescherte. 2009 steuerte sie große Teile zum Soundtrack des Films „Slumdog Millionär“ bei. Das neue Album wird noch dieses Jahr erscheinen. Mit dabei sind Produzenten wie Swizz Beatz, Polow Da Don und Danja, die dem Ausnahmetalent musikalisch zur Seite stehen. Doch zunächst dürfen sich die Fans auf "Bad Girls" freuen.

Elbow
Elbow liefern Song zu den Olympischen Sommerspielen 2012 in London
Lasset die Spiele beginnen! Aber nicht ohne Hymne! Noch müssen wir uns zwar etwas gedulden bis es den Track zu hören gibt, aber nachdem Elbow-Frontmann Guy Garvey die Arbeit am offiziellen Song der BBC für die Olympischen Spiele 2012 als „echte Verantwortung“ bezeichnete, äußerte sich nun Bassist Pete Turner ausführlich zu der Nummer. „Das war richtig gut. Einfach ein Gebiet, das wir noch nie betreten haben, also etwas für jemand ganz Spezielles zu schreiben. Es war großartig, ein Riesenspaß."
Er ergänzte noch: „Es ist wirklich ein epischer Song. Sowohl das Philharmonische Orchester, als auch der London Community Gospel Chor sind mit dabei. Ich freue mich richtig auf den Song. Ich denke, er wird zum ersten Mal im März zu hören sein."
Für Elbow gibt es aber noch mehr Gründe sich zu freuen. Sie sind bei den diesjährigen Brit Awards als „Best British Group“ zusammen mit Coldplay, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys und Chase & Status nominiert.

Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse - Neue Single "Between The Cheats" aus ihrem Album "Lioness: Hidden Treasures" jetzt im Radio
Nach ihrem tragischen Tod im Juli 2011 haben einige der Produzenten und Musiker, die eng mit Amy Winehouse zusammen gearbeitet haben - darunter Mark Ronson und Salaam Remi - noch einmal die vielen Aufnahmen von Amy angehört. Alle waren sich einig, dass sie nie einen Song zweimal auf die gleiche Weise gesungen oder gespielt hat. Und genau diesen Spirit greift ihr letztes Album „Lioness: Hidden Treasures“ auf.

Die 12 Songs umfassende Sammlung beinhaltet bisher unveröffentlichte Songs, alternative Versionen von Klassikern ebenso wie einige brandneue Kompositionen von Amy Winehouse. Am 2. Februar erscheint die Single „Between The Cheats“, die ab sofort im Radio zu hören ist.

Die neue Single-Auskoppplung „Between The Cheats” ist eine neue Komposition von Amy Winehouse, aufgenommen in London im Mai 2008 für eine mögliche Einbindung auf Album Nr. 3. Der Song wurde ursprünglich für den James Bond Film „Ein Quantum Trost“ geschrieben und letztendlich von Salaam Remi produziert, wurde aber nie in der finalen Filmfassung genutzt. Entgegen aller Berichterstattungen schaffte es Amy Winehouse aber sehr wohl, den Song fertig zu stellen, wie man auf „Lioness“ hören kann. Sie tat es eben nur auf ihre eigene Weise.

Taio Cruz
Taio Cruz live zu Gast bei "The Voice of Germany" am 27. Januar
Taio Cruz bricht weiterhin alle Rekorde! Mit zwei Nummer #1 Hits in den USA und über 100 Millionen Klicks auf Youtube ist der Engländer mit brasilianisch-griechischen Wurzeln ohnehin schon der erfolgreichste männliche Solokünstler seines Heimatlandes. Bei uns hat er gleich mit zwei Singles die Top10 gestürmt und bereits Gold für "Hangover" erhalten.

Mit seinem neuen Album „TY.O“ liefert Taio Cruz den perfekten Soundtrack zum Jahresstart 2012. Und neben seinen Charterfolgen hat er viele Gründe zu feiern: Schließlich betreibt er nebenbei noch erfolgreich seine eigene Plattenfirma und das Modelabel „Rokstarr“.

Seine aktuelle Single „Hangover“ wurde kürzlich sogar mit Platin ausgezeichnet. Diese Woche besucht Taio Cruz Deutschland. Am 23. Januar trat er bei der DLD Night im Rahmen der DLD–Konferenz in München auf. Natürlich sorgte Taio für Begeisterung. Weiter geht es am 27. Januar als Star-Gast bei „The Voice of Germany“ in Sat1.

Snow Patrol
Snow Patrol - Neue Single "In The End" ab sofort im deutschen Radio
Mit ihrem sechsten Studioalbum „Fallen Empires“ stiegen Snow Patrol direkt auf Platz 3 in die deutschen Charts ein und unterstreichen einmal mehr, dass sie längst zu den ganzen großen Popbands gehören.

„Obwohl dieses Album anders klingt, wollen wir klarstellen, dass wir bleiben, wer wir sind. Dies war das schwierigste Album, das wir bislang gemacht haben. Denn dieses mal sind die romantischen Songs so zart wie rosa Seidenpapier und die großen Songs wirklich gigantische Monster,“ erklärt Sänger und Songschreiber Gary Lightbody den Zauber und die Schwierigkeit des neuen Albums.

Ins Jahr 2012 starten Snow Patrol mit einer ausverkauften Tour im Februar und ihrer dritten Single „In The End“, die ab sofort im Radio zu hören ist. Für den Videodreh zum Song hat sich Sänger Gary Lightbody so richtig in Schale geworfen. Wer es nicht glaubt, kann sich hier davon überzeugen. Und alle, die keines der heiß begehrten Tickets für die Shows im Februar ergattern konnten, können beruhigt sein. Snow Patrol kommen im Sommer für weitere Konzerte nach Deutschland.
