push baby Releases “Mamas House”

DEBUT SINGLE AND VIDEO OUT NOW

LISTEN AND WATCH “MAMA’S HOUSE” HERE

We’d like to formally introduce you to push baby…

Re-imagined, re-envisioned, and recharged under this new name, the group’s four musicians—Jake Roche [vocals, guitar], Charley Bagnall [guitar], Danny Wilkin [bass, keys], and Lewi Morgan [drums]—first joined forces for multiplatinum pop phenomenon Rixton. Despite their early success, the band wasn’t satisfied with the image they had presented to the world and decided to stop making music and touring. Following a four-year hiatus, they return as push baby—a completely new band that honestly represents who they are as artists for the very first time. Today, they release their debut single “Mama’s House,” as well as the companion video.

Get it HERE via Republic Records/School Boy Records.

push baby serves up a catchy, clever, and cheeky clarion call with the single—which hinges on the hook, “I’m still here living in my mama’s house, sleeping on my mama’s couch.” A reflection of their own experience, the song is a truthful ode to a modern career in music. It’s about landing back under your mother’s roof after a brief tryst with independence. Lead singer Jake Roche takes shots at himself and the London elite by joking, “I go to Shoreditch House, take a shower in the gym. My membership ran out, so I call Ed to get me in,” alluding to his friend and former tourmate, one Ed Sheeran.  “We’re telling real stories” muses Roche. “We were away for years, and I come home to everyone thinking I’m now rich and famous. They think I’m getting all kinds of free stuff and living an amazing life. In reality, we’re back to square one.”

To accompany the track, frontman Roche co-directed the music video with MOON. It’s a wild, funky vignette punctuated by oddly unforgettable and unpredictable imagery, fire, and ode’s to music videos of the 90’s and Bob Fosse.

About the clip, Roche commented, “I wanted to see how far I could go by creating worlds built from my subconscious and my instinct. With my best friend and co creator MOON, we spoke about the visuals that stuck with us growing up in the 90’s. We just thought ‘if we do this we have to go all the way.’ Plus, this is a debut, and a debut in my opinion has to be strong, bold and come out of the gate kicking and screaming and I think we did that….in my Y fronts…with a donkey.”

As far as the new band name is concerned…

“Have you googled Push Baby? It’s horrifying,” says Roche.

“No matter what we do we just want people to feel authenticity. Even with the name. People are going to love it or hate it, but at least it’s self-aware” says Jake. “’Baby’ is the most overused word in pop, so we’re upfront about what this band is coming out of the gate.”

“We’re giving listeners the truth,” Jake concludes. “The truth can be funny at times. It can be scary at others, but it’s always real” he grins. Push Baby is brutal honesty with a smile, and they’re daring you listen.

“And hopefully by the time anybody is reading this,” Jake teases, “The search results for Push Baby will be more than just women giving birth.”

Pop music may never be the same.

Infant Loss Retreat

The Ramsey Keller Memorial, a non-profit organization that pays for infant funerals in Montana, is launching its first-ever national retreat for moms who are living without a child. “The Retreat” is designed to connect moms in person and is slated for the weekend of October 26, 27 and 28 at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort near Butte, Montana. The registration fee is $325/person and moms, nationwide, who have experienced the loss of a child are invited to attend. Topics are primarily focused on infant loss (children 1 year of age or younger and stillborn babies). Nationally known keynote speaker and founder of Still Standing Magazine Franchesca Cox is donating her time in an effort to offer “The Retreat” at the lowest cost available. Registration includes all scheduled events, the resort room, all meals Saturday and Sunday and additional goodies for attendees.

“Franchesca Cox is known for helping moms grieve and fight for the privilege to love life again,” says Ramsey Keller Memorial Founder Kori Keller. “She has experienced the loss of her firstborn daughter and while she has spearheaded many local and worldwide projects in her daughter’s name, she found the most healing came from living life to the fullest. The Retreat is about celebrating our babies lives and finding joy in life, even through the grief. I’m grateful and humbled that Franchesca is coming to Montana to share her message with moms like myself who have lost a child.”

Franchesca Cox is the author of Facets of Grief: a creative workbook for grieving mothers, and Celebrating Pregnancy Again. She is scheduled to speak twice during the weekend retreat. Her topics are “The Space Between Love and Loss” and “Broken and Brave.” Cox is also opening up discussion on baby loss to attendees and inviting the audience to participate in a Q & A session.

“Surviving the aftermath of infant loss is something we, as mothers who have lost a child, think about often. Whether the loss was last month or last decade, this retreat has excellent programming with key takeaways for everyone, as well as a format designed to build lasting relationships,” says Founder of Still Standing Magazine Franchesca Cox.

“Women who attend The Retreat will walk away with a lifelong network of people who belong to the same club, one that no one wants to be part of, but who understand something that very few people do. We’re a network, an incredibly strong support system. We will bond together and grow together and we’re there for each other,” says Keller.

Check in for The Retreat opens Friday October 26 at 4:00 p.m. with opening remarks from Ramsey Keller Memorial Founder Kori Keller starting at 6:00 p.m. Saturday’s agenda kicks off at 8:00 a.m. with breakfast, followed by the keynote address from Franchesca Cox, break out topical discussions, a message from Kori Keller about unnecessary baggage, a creative outlet activity presented and donated by Held Your Whole Life, a second impactful message from Franchesca Cox followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m.. Sunday includes breakfast starting at 8:00 a.m. followed by a panel discussion. The Retreat wraps up at 11:00 a.m. Sunday.

For more information or to register, visit The Retreat Website. Moms are encouraged to seek sponsors if they choose to do so, as payment for the retreat is considered a non-profit donation to the Ramsey Keller Memorial. While the topics are tailored for moms who have experienced baby loss, moms are welcome to invite the women who support them to attend so that they may be joined by sisters, mothers and close friends.

Boppy

 

It all began when a mom-inventor received a request from her daughter’s daycare. The daycare asked parents to make pillows that could support babies when they were not being held. After a few prototypes, the Original Boppy® Pillow was born! Nearly three decades later, the Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support Pillow is still supporting moms, dads, grandparents and babies. The Boppy Pillow has become the essential must-have item for every mom because of its comfort and versatility. Encouraged by happy moms, dads and babies, we have expanded our family to include prenatal and postnatal support and travel accessories. Stay tuned as we continue to support mom in her new stage of life.

Looking for Love

Important Qualities to Consider when Looking for Love :
We all want to be able to settle down with someone special one day but finding the perfect partner is not always easy. While there are plenty of resources to help you find love these days, such as online dating sites, you have to be sure that the person you choose has the right qualities. It is not all about appearance, which is something that you need to remember when you are looking for that special someone.

 
While you do not have to go over the top and start carrying out a background check online every time you find someone you like, there are certain qualities that you should look for. This will make it far easier to find someone that you will not only be attracted to physically but will also enjoy the company of. Relationships that are based purely on physical attraction are far less likely to succeed in the long run compared to those that are meaningful on a deeper levels.

 
What else you need to look for :
Of course, physical attraction is important in a relationship. However, you should remember that it is you that must feel attracted to the person not your friends and family. So, don’t worry if your friends don’t like the look of the person you are interested in – as long as you have that attraction there, that’s all that matters.

 
One thing you should look for when you are looking for love is someone that has a good sense of humor. Unless you want your life to be deadly serious all the time, it is important that you find someone you can have a laugh and a joke with. Finding a partner with a similar sense of humor as you can be really beneficial because it means that you are likely to have a lot in common from the types of movies you like to the types of activities you enjoy.

 
Another important quality that you need to look at is just how much the person has in common with you. Of course, they do not have to like every little thing that you like. However, having some similar interests is important because it means that you will be able to do far more together when it comes to your free time. If you enjoy things such as walking, cycling, and hiking, finding a partner that prefers to be slumped in front of the TV in all their spare time could make things difficult when it comes to spending quality time together.

 
One more thing that many people look for is someone that can provide some essence of security and stability. This doesn’t refer to how much money they earn or what assets they have. It means finding someone that you can wholly trust and someone that wants to work toward the same life goals as you. This will enable you both to work toward a common goal such as eventually settling down and starting a family.
