unnamed

 

Country artist JACLYN KENYON has released the official music video for her newest single, “Tombstone” Directed by Jordan Davies, the Mike Krompass produced track is the second single off of her upcoming, debut EP.

player

“Tombstone will bring you back to every heartbreak you’ve ever felt. The things you allow in life are the things that will continue and sometimes you have to realize that you’re in charge of your own happiness and that happiness might just mean it’s better to let go.” – Jaclyn Kenyon

IMG 9069 1

Not knowing who you want to be is a normal part of growing up. Sometimes you have to search again and again to find your voice and who you are. Most importantly, being confident enough at a young age to keep pushing yourself and having the drive to succeed and work hard is why Jaclyn Kenyon is poised to make a real impact in Music.

With influence from such legends as Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Michael Jackson, and excited about such newer young female artists like Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Carly Pearce, “A little Rock n’ Roll and A LOT Country” is what you can see and feel just by meeting this 20-year-old Ontario native, who has been going back and forth to Nashville since she was a teenager.

Always a strong performer, Jaclyn has been on the stage since the age of 12, when she was the youngest performer ever in Canada’s all-female artist showcase Honey Jam, competing against artists twice her age. This prestigious showcase, Canada’s largest and best known, had launched the careers of Nelly Furtado and Jully Black.

At 15 years old Jaclyn caught the eye of world-renowned vocal coach and multi-platinum producer “Mama” Jan Smith who immediately saw her raw talent. “Jaclyn, as a writer, I believe she can write for anybody,” Mama Jan said of Jaclyn, “Stylistically, she really doesn’t have a lot of limits, which is awesome.”

After that Jaclyn was fortunate enough to learn more about herself as an artist with multi-platinum writers and producers in Nashville and Los Angeles where she spent time trying to find what inspires her

“People have always had me try and sing different styles, whether it was Country, Rock or Pop. I’ve always gone along and tried every idea to find my voice. I’ve even had producers make me sing ‘hard rock’ “, says Jaclyn recanting some of the musical adventures she went through as a teenager, “One producer kept telling me to lose my ‘country twang’ in my voice and I didn’t realize that was just a natural part of me.

Jaclyn’s first single off her upcoming EP, “Daddy’s Got A Shotgun,” was Produced by Mike Krompass and co-written with Nashville luminaries Clay Mills and Steve Diamond.

In addition, Jaclyn has been writing in Nashville with Producer Mike Krompass, and writers Robbie Nevil, Rich Redmond.

Said of her brand new song ‘Daddy’s Got A Shotgun’, ”This is a cute fun song I wrote about an overprotective father, …no matter how old you are you’re always gonna be your daddy’s little girl, right?

Jaclyn is getting ready for what’s next, “With the great fans I’ve been building, I’ll be able to play live more often than I thought” Said an excited Jaclyn “ I’ll let you know when I play next. Please keep listening and sharing my music”

XAON. An elusive name born amidst Switzerland’s highest mountains. Never quite fitting in any of the numerous galleries metal has to offer, drifting through the extremes whilst juxtaposing finesse and vehemence, exploring the vast echoic gloominess of the human mind. You can simply call it DARK METAL.

After a successful major european tour with gothic metal monsters SIRENIA and folk metal legends TYR promoting their debut EP Face Of Balaam and several large festival shows with the likes of PARADISE LOST, ELUVEITIE and ROTTING CHRIST, the combo led by Vincent Zermatten (guitars) and Rob Carson (vocals) took their alchemical artistry to a new level with the release of their first album The Drift through Sliptrick Records. The album progresses from spectral ambiances to grandiose and intricate orchestrations, it evolves from oppressing aggressiveness to majestic lamentations and will make you journey through a turmoil of monolithic pummeling and distinguished mournfulness.

Following this critically acclaimed release, XAON has set foot for the first time in the USA, toured in JAPAN while supporting OBSCURA, performed at the first edition of ROCK THE CASTLE in Verona opening for bands like MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, EXODUS and more and is ready to take the rest of 2018 by storm and proving themselves as an upcoming force around the world.

Hard Rock band Alive In Barcelona, has ignited the airwaves with their explosive new single, “Back To Life,” which premiered on Loudwire.com, charted at #94 for Media Base and #42 for Under The Radar Charts.

The five-piece from the Pacific Northwest have been to hell and back, suffering losses both personal and public. Persevering through the death of Jesse’s Father, a mentor and confidant for the band, AIB has set out to seek the lost, the broken, and the hurting. The group refocused their efforts, in order to pursue a message of hope, after losing many friends to depression, substance abuse, and consequently, suicide. These trials paved the way for AIB to develop their mission statement: “to inspire hope in those that have none.” The band uses their own stories of personal hardship, struggle, and loss, to relate to their fans, in order to achieve this.

“We really want to help hurting people… too many people are depressed and don’t know where to turn. We want our listeners to know that they aren’t alone, and that they can always come to us in times of need.” – Matt Hoos, Vocalist

PHOENIX RISING, based out of Dallas, Texas, came together in 2017 in the most unlikely of places: a Craigslist ad posted by Vocalist Kent Summerour in search of like-minded musicians who not only wanted to make music with substance, but who wanted to create a live spectacle like nothing else in the local music scene. After a short search and a lot of luck, the ad was answered by five seasoned musicians one of whom was Australian. Comprised of a second vocalist, guitar, synth and a whole lot of rhythm, PHOENIX RISING was born.

Like setting fire to gas, the newly formed group had written an album’s worth of material in one month, and the search for producers began. This search led PHOENIX RISING to Tyler Smyth; however Smyth was on tour six hours away in San Antonio . With no way to get in touch with Smyth, Kent went down to San Antonio with a pillow and a sleeping bag, on a mission to maneuver himself back stage, and persuade Smyth to listen to the demos, hoping that after hearing the music, Smyth would be driven to work with the band. Mission Complete, Smyth agreed to work with PHOENIX RISING in LA and shortly thereafter, the band flew out to record their debut album From the Ashes.

With the Album complete, supported by several Music Video’s – PHOENIX RISING now look forward to drawing emotion from the listener and inspire fans with their powerful stage show. The music has a very “overcoming” quality to it. Musically and lyrically, PHOENIX RISING wants you to stand up for what you believe in and overcome any and all adversity that blocks your path.

Another Day’s Armor is a Rock / Alternative Metal band from New York. Combining the huge, mainstream sound of arena rock with borderline metal instrumental work, the band started to create a buzz for themselves with debut singles “Reflections” and “Simple As Sin.” Coming off the momentum of the previous two singles, the band has been working on their debut EP which is set to release mid summer 2018.

Coming up in a time where very few bands put any emphasis into their image and persona, ADA pride themselves on standing out from the crowd both visually, and musically. With an image reminiscent of a time where rock was on top of the music world, Another Day’s Armor refuses to be just another “faceless” band, wanting their fans to feel connected to every member: Logan Manganelli – Vocals, Nick Palma – Lead Guitar, Ryan Bicknell – Rhythm Guitar, Joe Grunski – Bass, and Alec Keshishian – Drums.

Another Day’s Armor aren’t just a band, they are a movement for the future of rock.

THRILLKILLER Release Official Music Video for Title Single Off of ‘San Francisco Moto’

Baltimore, MD based rock band THRILLKILLERhas released the official music video for their single “San Francisco Moto,” the title track of their June 2nd released EP.

San Francisco Moto takes the explosive influences of the band to the next level. From the synthwave inspired track, the King of 1984 to the funk/metal fusion songs Wicked Rhythm and San Francisco Moto, this album includes songs recorded and engineered by Tony Corelli (Deep End Studios) and Derrin Ruschell (Stingray Studios). San Francisco Moto visually takes heavily from 80s cinema as explored upon in the two music videos supporting the release(“The King of 1984” and “San Francisco Moto”).

The music videos dive head first into 80 sci fi/action movie territory telling the story of Rex RazorDelorean driving time cop, part cinematic experience, part music video, the visual and auditory experience that Thrillkiller delivers is truly unique.

Player

“This EP pushed the boundaries of our music into uncharted territory. The Brothers Johnson, The Gap Band, and a host of other classic funk acts made a huge impact on songs like ‘San Francisco Moto’ and ‘Wicked Rhythm,’ while the stylings of synthwave acts like Lazerhawk and Mitch Murder were sprinkled into The King of 1984 and the Theme of Rex Razor. Last Horizon takes elements from a mixture of heavy metal and a little bit of Bad Religion rounding out the track listing nicely. The release also doubles as a companion piece for our music video universe we’ve recently launched, complete with full blown 80s movie artwork.” – Rob Bradley

After the success of their debut music video, “The King of 1984,” Thrillkiller was back to work at new releases and a follow up video based off of their new single, “San Francisco Moto.” Like the last video, Thrillkiller launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to let fans take part in the creation process of this upcoming music video event followed by a summer tour along the east coast.

“I can’t think of anything that sounds like this” Gary Thorn, Shockwave Magazine

“If you are a fan of music at all, you owe it to yourself to give Thrillkiller a listen and meet your new favorite band of 2016.” C., Metal To Infinite Webzine

“Thrillkiller has the chance to be the breakout band of 2016” Andy Davis, Heavy Metal Time Machine

“Every track, member, and part absolutely slays, taking a wander down through the different levels of writing and mix never becomes boring. This is no cheap mock up behind a single individual, nor a gilded lily.” Si Marks, You Can Find Me On The Edge

Their members have shared the stage with acts such as The Protomen, Sebastian Bach, Metal Church, Stratovarius, Pagan’s Mind, Symphony X, and many more. Exploding on the scene in the fall of 2015, mixing elements of metal, rock, pop and others, Thrillkiller delivers a viciously unique style of music. With the launch of their debut EP, Time in January of 2016, followed by their totally fan funded debut release, Showdown in summer of 2016. In 2017 and 2018 the band created two back to back cinematic music videos alongside their new EP, San Francisco Moto.
