On August 20th, 2016, German actor, composer and chief of “A Leaving Reality Production,” Stuart Styron will be releasing his latest album, Archive of a Last Generation. Originally recorded in 2009-10, and revised from August 2015-16, the incredibly strong and powerful album is dedicated to the Aramean history. As the son of Aramaic parents, Styron says, “The soundtrack would fit perfectly to today’s force of Aramaic consciousness, compared to the usual stale folk music. Look forward to a piece of history.” The album will initially be released digitally, worldwide, followed by a physical CD release. Read More
W&C (Whiskey and Cigarettes Country Radio Show) is happy to announce the airing of their exclusive interview with Top 60 Music Row charting artist, Alexandra Demetree. Ms. Demetree joined award-winning host, DJ Nik Bernitz Pizzigoni, to talk about her burgeoning career, including her latest single, “You Still Think I’m Beautiful.”
If it’s one thing that award-winning Canadian musician Ed Roman can claim, it’s that he puts his money where his mouth is. Known for the socially-conscious messages in his globally-aware songs like “I Am Love,” “Lay One Down” and “I Found God,” the chart-topping artist is not shy about giving back to those less fortunate. In the spring of 2015, Roman and his wife delivered humanitarian aid and taught music to villages in the poorest sections of Jamaica. Later that year, Ed recorded and donated a track to Heart Songs for Veterans, to benefit military and service members across North America. Ed has also donated music and raised funds for childrens’ cancer charities and more. Read More
What better way to celebrate an election year in the United States than with a cheeky, in your face, shut-up your pie hole song? In true punk form Nick DeStefano and The Spiders have delivered a spot on tag entailing their point of view in a ‘patriotic’ (that is sarcasm) depiction in the tune and video called, “Election Day.”
The scraping, the name calling, the stadium of goofiness and the overhaul of what used to be respectable but has now been made a mockery of as the United States looks like the chief buffoon! All of this falderol is tightly wrapped up into a tribute or cheers of sorts to this process very well in the lyrical content and video imagery DeStefano and The Spiders have put together.

The Australian rock band Moscato started out as many bands do, a couple of friends just jamming out. Founders Jo and Monkey (Adrian) soon realized there was more to it than just a jam session, so they soon joined forces with Erin to transform their duo into a trio.
Beyond the music though, Moscato helps raise awareness for Auto Immune Disorders, donating all of their proceeds to Arthritis QLD. The original singer Jo suffers from auto immune disorders, leading to Erin taking over as lead vocalist.
