Adam Sbragia Launches Home Field Red Blend

Fourth Generation Sonoma Winemaker Adam Sbragia Launches Home Field Red Blend

Sbragia Family Vineyards winemaker Adam Sbragia continues his family’s legacy in Dry Creek Valley, launching his own brand, Home Field Red Blend.  Produced from the 2016 vintage, the debut wine is crafted from five grape varieties grown in six different vineyards: Gino’s Estate Zinfandel, La Promessa Estate Zinfandel, Teldeschi Petite Sirah, Forchini Carignane, Andolsen Cabernet and Home Ranch Estate Merlot.

“Born and raised in Dry Creek Valley, I’ve explored every vineyard in every corner of my Home Field to create a modern wine that expresses purity of fruit and my family’s long winemaking history,” remarks Adam.

“I want to extend the winemaking tradition that my great-grandfather started when he came to Dry Creek Valley from Italy in 1904.  Being a 4th generation winemaker, I grew up in the vineyards, riding a tractor with my grandfather Gino and pruning and tasting grapes with my father, Ed Sbragia,” comments Adam.  “I’ve been making wine side by side with my dad for a dozen years.  It’s exciting to take what I’ve learned and make a wine that’s all my own.”

Madison Ryann Ward “Beyond Me” EP

Rising vocalist and songwriter Madison Ryann Ward reveals her debut EP, Beyond Me, out now.

LISTEN TO BEYOND ME HERE!

Beyond Me features Madison Ryann Ward’s lead single, “Beyond Me,” as well as three additional tracks: “The Key,” “Other Side” and “BRKN.”

The EP follows Ward’s 2018 breakout single, “Mirror,” which was featured on Jay-Z’s episode of the hit Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman. The song, produced by the legendary Rick Rubin and recorded in his Malibu studio Shangri-La, has over 4 million streams to date and received praise from Billboard, Refinery29, Women’s Health, Music Connection and more. Earlier this year, Madison was also featured on Peter Cottontale’s hit track, “Forever Always,” also featuring Chance The Rapper, YEBBA and Daniel Caesar.

 Ward will also appear in Episode 4 of Showtime Documentary Films’ new docu-series, SHANGRI-LA. The four-part docu-series is a collaboration from Academy Award® and Emmy® winner Morgan Neville (Won’t You Be My Neighbor, 20 Feet From Stardom), legendary music producer Rick Rubin and director Jeff Malmberg (Marwencol) and focuses on creative conversation and the emotional side of music-making.

 Inspired by artists from many different genres, Madison Ryann Ward combines bluesy, soulful melodies with folk, rap and gospel influenced lyricism to create a classic sound that remains all her own. Having grown up in a creative family in Oklahoma, Ward was exposed to music at a young age, which would come to inform her distinct style. However, music was not always the path Madison had in mind. Having played sports all her life, excelling in volleyball, basketball, golf and track, she decided to play collegiate volleyball at Oklahoma University and planned to play professionally overseas after graduation. But when a group of athletes heard her singing Aretha Franklin’s “Chain Of Fools” in the cafeteria and posted a clip on Twitter, the video went viral after being picked up by WorldStarHipHop. The response Ward received prompted her to consider a shift towards making music professionally. Madison took songwriting trips to Nashville, eventually moving there for a year before splitting her time between the studio in New York and Los Angeles, where she signed a label deal with legendary producer Rick Rubin. Following her breakout hit, “Mirror,” and a scene in the Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, Ward unveils her debut EP, Beyond Me, which sees her reach a new level as a lyricist and vocalist.

Jax Jones “Harder” Featuring Bebe Rexha

Fresh from his latest single ‘One Touch’ with Jess Glynne, two-time BRIT Award nominated DJ/producer Jax Jones is back with yet another collaboration in the form of ‘Harder’ with pop powerhouse Bebe Rexha. Out today via Polydor/Interscope Records, stream and download ‘Harder’ here.

In typical Bebe style the lyrics on ‘Harder’ showcase her sass and sharp wit underpinned by the infectious dance and pop beats Jax is synonymous for. ‘Harder’ offers an empowering and self-assured message on how to handle love that is frank but yet fun.

Collectively both Bebe and Jax have set the charts on fire with a succession of award-winning collaborations although ‘Harder’ is the pair’s first joint record. With both boasting an impressive back catalogue of hits, the release of ‘Harder’ is all set to bring their legions of loyal fans together providing the perfect soundtrack to summer. 

Speaking of the single Jax said “Me and Camille have a great relationship and we’ve enjoyed a lot of success together – ‘All Day and Night’ and ‘Ring Ring’ – so to join forces with her and Steve Mac, who I’ve looked up to for a long time, was a great opportunity for me to try something different and flex my pop muscles. Bebe Rexha linking up with us on this record was the icing on the cake, she’s pretty iconic and is just a don. ‘All Day and Night’ was for the clubs, this one’s the daytime snack”.

Having just completed a SNACKS residency at Ibiza Rock last month, Jax Jones will be joining Zedd on his North American headlining “Orbit” tour, kicking off September 7 in Los Angeles at the LA Historic Park. See US tour dates below.

Justin Love and GASHI “Get Out”

Justin Love & GASHI have joined forces for one of the standout feel-good tracks of the summer: Get Out. Sitting in the sweet-spot of R&B and hip-hop, Justin and GASHI trade verses over a bouncy, sunshine-soaked beat. The playful production allows Love’s sultry vocals to take center stage, serenading his love interest throughout. GASHI’s verse adds additional energy and rounds out the infectious tune with his luscious vocals and raunchy lyrics.

Justin & GASHI had some words to share about the song:

“I wanted to create a song that made people feel good for the summer and when I heard this beat, I knew exactly what it took and who needed to be on it with me. Gashi was the perfect fit and the energy he brought was amazing; I’m happy we get to share it with the world!” – Justin

“This record is one of the greatest songs I’ve ever been a part of and I’m very excited for the world to hear this.” – GASHI

Justin Love is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, earning a nomination in the Best R&B Song category at this years’ awards for his writing credits on H.E.R.’s smash hit “Focus”. Love has earned a captivated fanbase with his heartfelt songwriting, flawless vocals and charismatic personality. Get Out is Justin’s third release of the year; following up Runaway and Bad Mind. With a slew of singles ready to roll out in the coming months, Love is slated for a big second half of 2019.

GASHI has had a huge year himself in 2019. The Africa-born, New York-based artist released My Year featuring G-Eazy in February, his second top 20 record (after Creep On Me feat French Montana & DJ Snake), later performing the song on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Kimmel. Having racked up millions of streams and show dates across the globe over the past decade, it’s fair to say GASHI has established himself at the forefront of the new generation of multi-purpose artists. 

Get Out is available everywhere on streaming platforms.

COMMON TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM LET LOVE

GRAMMY® Award-winning rapper COMMON will release his new album Let Love on August 30, 2019, his debut for Loma Vista Recordings.

Pre-order it HERE.

In tandem with this announcement, he shared his latest single and music video entitled “Hercules” [feat. Swizz Beatz]. On the track, he serves up his sharp signature wordplay between soulful backing vocals from Swizz Beatz. Meanwhile, the music video directed by Carrick [Weezer] sees Common thwart a convenience store robbery caught on surveillance camera—in between rapping into his iPhone. Vince Staples makes a cameo as the cashier.

Watch the action unfold HERE.

“Hercules” follows on the heels of the recent single “HER Love” featuring Daniel Caesar, special guest Dwele, and an unreleased beat from J Dilla. Not only did the song amass over 1 million cumulative streams and 339K views on the Savanah Leaf-directed music video within a week, but it also received widespread critical acclaim. VIBE called the song “a State of the Rap Union as he addresses the rise and expansion of hip-hop throughout the past 25 years.” Rolling Stone added that it was “Common’s homage to hip-hop”, and OkayPlayer professed that it’s “his most impactful body of work yet.”

Download “Hercules” HERE.

About the album, he shared, “This album is inspired by the book, “Let Love Have The Last Word” which gave me a path to write about things I had never written about before. It forced me to go deeper and because I opened up about so many things in the book, I was charged to go to raw, personal and spiritual places in the music. Production-wise, I knew that the music had to have depth, soul and dimension to it. I wanted the musicianship and the spirit of what live music brings, but it also had to have something raw and basement about it. When my team said, “You should do some music revolving around the book,” I just took that energy and went running into my artistry without focusing on anything else. No movies, no commercials, no parties (well, I don’t do that too much anyway) and I just worked on music. So this album is the culmination of this journey, this passion and this Divine Love that I have for one of GOD’s greatest gifts – MUSIC.”

COMMON will kick off his Let Love Tour, which starts in Denver, Colorado at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom tonight, and continues through marquee venues in the US and Canada before touring Europe for the first time since 2014. Special guests include Nicole Bus, July 11 –July 26, and Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh, August 7 – August 29.

Aston Martin is licenced to thrill at British Grand Prix

th F1TM Grand Prix

One of the most enduring movie partnerships will be in the spotlight this weekend when Aston Martin Lagonda and EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films, celebrate the 1,007th Formula 1 Grand Prix, which takes place at Silverstone.

The British Grand Prix is the home race for the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing team, so it is fitting that the race falls on a number forever associated with James Bond.

The two Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1TM cars will feature the iconic 007 logo and Bond number plates on the back of their rear wings. Max Verstappen’s RB15 Formula 1 car will run the number plate from the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger (1964) while Pierre Gasly’s car will feature the Aston Martin V8 plate from The Living Daylights (1987).

The Aston Martin Red Bull Racing pit garage will feature wall graphics inspired by Q’s MI6 Lab.

Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: “Aston Martin is proud of its association with James Bond. This weekend, we look forward to celebrating this longstanding partnership at Formula One’s 1,007th Grand Prix.”

When James Bond first appeared in the iconic Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger (1964) a lasting relationship was created. The following movie, Thunderball (1965), featured the Aston Martin DB5 at Silverstone in a chase sequence. Through the decades, Bond has driven many Aston Martins including the DBS, the V8 Vantage Volante and the DB10 to name but a few. To mark the 50th anniversary of the Aston Martin DBS, which featured in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, 50 special-edition 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggeras will be sold. The first of these special cars will be on track at Silverstone during the Pirelli Hot Laps sessions. Ticketholders can see a number of the Aston Martins from the James Bond films on display in the Bond In Motion exhibition including the V8 that will appear in Bond 25, located in the Fanzone, to register for tickets go to https://www.eventworld.com/en/events/11.
