STEPHANIE URBINA JONES RETURNS TO TEXAS

COUNTRY LATINA ARTIST STEPHANIE URBINA JONES RETURNS TO TEXAS WITH THIRD ANNUAL "SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS" TOUR

Nashville, TN - Nov. 17, 2016 - Perhaps nothing spreads the joy of the holiday season in the way that music can. In the spirit of the season that tells us to promote “peace on earth, good will toward men,” rising Hispanic country music singer-songwriter Stephanie Urbina Jones will return to her native Texas to embark on her third annual “Spirit of Christmas” tour December 1 – 8.  Representing the Texas Heritage Music Foundation (THMF), Jones will bring Christmas cheer to homeless shelters, a children’s hospital, a veterans’ hospital, nursing homes and a special needs community. The performances will include seasonal favorites and songs from her 2015 holiday release, Feliz Navidad, Y’all.

Because of her fiery heart and the humanitarian work she has done with the organization, the THMF considers Jones their very own “Fiery Angel,” a name coined from the title of her current CD, Fiery Angel. The Foundation’s mission is “To preserve and perpetuate the traditions in Texas music, to examine the background of Texas music, to trace influences and patterns in Texas music, to document the role Texas music has played in society, and to provide free educational programming to the Texas community."

With the tour imminent, Jones’ excitement is building. 

“From the cradle to the grave, nothing touches or moves the heart more than music,” she says.  “It is an honor to sing and bring the spirit of Christmas to folks who need and appreciate it most.” From inspiring a homeless shelter with "Feliz Navidad," to clapping and singing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” to special-needs friends and fans and serenading the elderly and infirm with "White Christmas,” Jones loves it all.  “Nothing brings out that childlike wonder like Christmas,” she reflects. “In the end, our presence is the best gift any of us can give, so I open my heart and pour all I have into every song. It is the hardest two weeks of my year, and the most rewarding. From laughter to tears, we sing through it all!”

Janice Ballard, THMF's Program Manager of The Music Connection, is looking forward to the third installment of the "Spirit of Christmas" tour.

"Stephanie has the unique ability to touch people like no other,” says Ballard. “She embodies the very essence of the Texas Heritage Music Foundation – that singing songs and telling stories make a difference in the world. During her annual “Spirit of Christmas” tour through the Texas Hill Country, she brings the season alive through the power of her music and her incredible ability to connect on a personal level with her audiences. We are honored to work with her these past three years."

Jones actually credits the beginning of her international career to THMF. It was founder Kathleen Hudson who first took Jones to Mexico to represent Texas at a festival. Since then, doors have opened for her, and in the past two years, Jones has represented her Texas roots in ten countries around the world. 

Jones is taking on the "Spirit of Christmas" tour in the midst of the success of her current single, “Vamanos! (Let’s Go!).” Her music seeks to integrate the heart of her bicultural roots with contemporary style, flair and passion.


About Stephanie Urbina Jones:

The San Antonio native and #1 Billboard Country Latina songwriter is passionate about celebrating her Hispanic heritage in country music around the world. Jones is winning international acclaim while shattering traditional music industry boundaries and genres with shows across the United States, Mexico, Japan, Europe and the United Kingdom.

With her CD Fiery Angel, she arrives as a woman who inspires, a songwriter who bravely explores the heart’s darkest corners and a singer who interprets life with passion and intimacy while carrying the heart of her bicultural roots to audiences all over the world.

Her her 1977 country-pop crossover hit song, "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue,” became an iconic staple and solidified her as one of the top female vocalists during the 1970s and 1980s.

BRUNO MARS

Was Bruno Mars auch anfasst, das grenzt an Magie: Diesen Freitag erscheint mit „24K Magic“ das brandneue Album des US-Superstars, inklusive der beiden bereits veröffentlichten Smasher „24K Magic“ und „Versace on the Floor“, die bereits erahnen lassen, mit welch grenzenloser Vielfalt der gebürtige Hawaiianer auftrumpfen wird.

VALENTINA MÉR

Im vergangenen Juli gab die Offenburgerin mit ihrer „Giant“ EP einen Vorgeschmack ihres außergewöhnlichen, musikalischen Talents. Schon die ersten Songs von Valentina Mér führten gleichzeitig in ihr Herz und in die Ferne.
Diesen Freitag erscheint ihre Debüt-Single „Paperheart“, ein erster Vorbote ihres im März 2017 erscheinenden Debüt-Longplayers „you“, an dem sie seit einigen Monaten mit den Produzenten Udo Rinklin und Frank Pilsl (u.a. Philipp Poisel, Die Happy, Delirious) arbeitet.
„Der Moment, in dem man begreift, wie zerbrechlich man selbst ist, wie schutzlos man den Dingen ausgeliefert ist – das wollte ich in ‘Paperheart’ zum Ausdruck bringen“, erklärt Valentina. „Aber ich wollte auch das Gegenteil zeigen, ein Gefühl von Geborgenheit und vielleicht so etwas wie Trost.“

GALLANT

Mit goldener Urban Pop-Stimme zieht er das Publikum unmittelbar in seinen Bann. Auch Elton John zählt zu seinen Fans der ersten Stunde. Wenig verwunderlich, dass der 24-jährige Gallant mit Stars wie Frank Ocean oder Sam Smith verglichen und als „Game-Changer“ (Complex) gehandelt wird.
Absolut unberechenbar, höchst emotional und mit himmelhohem Falsett gewappnet, schickt Gallant seine Songs auf eine Reise zu sich selbst – eine hinreißende Mischung aus Pop, Soul, Electro, Rock, Hiphop und Gospel. Kürzlich performte er mit Elton John im Duett seine aktuelle Single „Weight in Gold“ – hier zu sehen.
Im Dezember kommt der Mann mit der alles durchdringenden, schier unvergleichlichen Stimme zu zwei Terminen live nach Deutschland: 07.12. Köln, Luxor // 08.12. Berlin, Frannz Club.

PENTHOX

Kürzlich vom UK-Radiosender Capital Xtra zum heißesten Dance-Producer des Jahres 2016 ernannt, gesellt sich der gerade erst 18-jährige Schwede in eine illustre Reihe musikalisch Gleichgesinnter wie Skrillex, Afrojack oder Martin Garrix.
Und hört man seine morgen erscheinende Single so leuchtet das sofort ein. „Cigarette“ ist eine Kollaboration mit den norwegischen Hitmakern Madcon und dem schwedischen Rapper/Songwriter Julimar Santos, die vom brennenden Schmerz eines gebrochenen Herzens handelt und mit ungemein eingängiger Produktion glänzt.
Penthox machte sich bereits durch Remixe und Kollaborationen mit Künstlern wie Nico & Vinz oder Jasmine Thompson einen hervorragenden Namen und sorgt derzeit nicht nur im Tropical House für reichlich frischen Wind.

RATIONALE

Seine wagemutigen, genreübergreifenden Songs voller Soul und Herz erzählen in einer satten Bariton-Stimme Geschichten aus dem wahren Leben. Kein Geringerer als Pharrell Williams sagte über den Londoner Producer, Songwriter und Multi-Instrumentalisten: „Diese Person hat die Schönheit ihrer eigenen Stimme entdeckt“.
Bereits zum Erscheinen seiner Debüt-EP „Fuel to the Fire“ hatten sich sowohl der Titeltrack als auch „Fast Lane“ in den Playlisten von BBC Radio 1 etabliert. Kommende Woche veröffentlicht Rationale neue Musik, die es vorab hier im Teaser zu hören gibt.
Ab heute ist er live in Deutschland als Support von Bastille unterwegs: 17.11. Hamburg, Sporthalle // 25.11. Berlin, Max-Schmeling-Halle // 28.11. München, Zenith // 29.11. Düsseldorf, Mitsubishi Electric Hall.

DISTURBED

Die mehrfach Platin-veredelten Rocker der Stunde veröffentlichen am morgigen Freitag ihr brandneues Live-Album „Live at Red Rocks“ mit Songs aus ihrer nunmehr 20 Jahre währenden Karriere.
Aufgezeichnet im Rahmen einer US-Live-Show vom August diesen Jahres im sagenumwobenen Red Rocks-Amphitheater Colorados, wo die Band auf ihrer aktuellen Tour halt machte, umfasst „Live at Red Rocks“ einige ihrer größten Hits, darunter „Down with the Sickness“, „Stricken“ oder „The Vengeful One“.
Ebenso darauf enthalten ist die Platin-Version ihres Simon & Garfunkel-Covers „Sound of Silence“, die es hier zu hören gibt und die bereits über 136 Mio. Views zählt. Im Februar kommen Disturbed auf „Immortalized“-Tour nach Deutschland, Österreich und in die Schweiz. Hier alle Shows im Überblick.

MICHAEL BUBLÉ

Ende Oktober veröffentlichte der kanadische Weltstar sein siebtes Studioalbum „Nobody But Me“, das er selbst in einem Interview als „Album seiner Träume“ beschrieb und das sich hierzulande innerhalb kürzester Zeit direkt in die Top 5 der Album-Charts katapultierte.
„Ich wusste nicht, dass ich je so viel Spaß haben könnte, an einem Album zu arbeiten“, schwärmt Bublé, der zudem als Co-Producer mitwirkte. 13 wundervolle Titel enthält der Longplayer, darunter zahlreiche Eigenkompositionen und auch einige Standards.
Am kommenden Sonntag (20.11.) läuft ab 00:35 Uhr auf VOX eine TV-Doku über den charmanten Entertainer: „Michael Bublé – der Sänger mit den vielen Gesichtern“. Zuschauer erfahren darin Erstaunliches über Bublés Wurzeln und die besondere Beziehung zu seinem Großvater.

TOUR DER WOCHE

Image Label
Image Label
Knapp ein Jahr tourte der Wahl-Kölner mit seinem Erfolgsalbum „Staub“ (2013). Danach legte er erstmal eine Live-Pause ein, um einerseits wieder neue Kräfte zu sammeln, andererseits den zwischenzeitlich abgelegten Tour-Alltag dazu zu nutzen, konzentriert am Nachfolger zu arbeiten.
Nach ersten, rasch ausverkauften Auftaktkonzerten im kleineren Rahmen, veröffentlichte MAXIM Anfang September jenen ungeduldig erwarteten, dritten Longplayer „Das Bisschen was wir sind“, auf dem er Musik und Worte zu einer perfekten Komposition verschmelzen lässt – allem voran die gnadenlos gute, erste Single „Willkommen im Club“, eine Hymne über die Schönheit des Scheiterns.
In Kürze entführt MAXIM sein Publikum auch live wieder in facettenreiche Gefilde und demonstriert eindrucksvoll, was anspruchsvollen, zeitgemäßen Pop ausmacht:
19.11. Bremen, Schlachthof
20.11. Hamburg, Uebel&Gefährlich
21.11. Berlin, Astra
23.11. Leipzig, Täubchenthal
24.11. München, Muffathalle
27.11. Stuttgart, Im Wizemann
28.11. Frankfurt, Batschkapp
29.11. Köln, Gloria Theater
