Aaron Carpenter – Proud

Download / Stream “Proud” HERE  

Aaron Carpenter returns with “Proud,” a poignant song from the road that celebrates the enduring influence of family and friends on a musician and the deep-seated desire to make them proud. The track was produced by Oren Yoel (Miley Cyrus, Fitz and The Tantrums, Tori Kelly). Download / stream “Proud” HERE.

“‘Proud’ perfectly describes what I’ve felt since I moved to L.A. on my own, away from all of my family – after everything that we’ve been through,” says Aaron Carpenter. “In 2015, I lost both my stepbrother and stepdad. They were both such big supporters and motivators of me pursuing my passion along with the rest of my family. I hope that ‘Proud’ resonates and helps people the same way that it’s helped me!” “Proud” is the latest in a string of singles Carpenter has released since signing to Capitol Records. As Idolator observed, “The Justin Timberlake-channeling, R&B/pop song [‘Attitude’] caught everyone’s attention, and he built on that momentum with the slinky ‘Chase.’ The 20-year-old now showcases his versatility with ‘Next’…battling a nasty case of lovesickness over The Roommates’ mellow beats…[it] will strike a chord with anyone going through it.” 

BBC Radio 1 named “Attitude” as one of the Best New Pop tracks upon its release in April. StarShine Magazine recently chose “No Control” – also produced by The Roommates – as the Song of the Week. 

Growing up in Louisiana, music was Carpenter’s entire world. Raised on everything from classic country to pop-punk to the Stevie Wonder records his grandmother often spun for him, he took up drumming at age 11, later teaching himself to play piano and guitar. He began posting cover songs in 2015 on Instagram, where he now has nearly four million followers.

Ready to share his own original songs, Carpenter headed to Los Angeles in 2016 and soon landed sessions with A-list songwriters. After spending nearly every day in the studio for an entire year, he signed with Capitol Records. He is currently working on his debut album.

NOAH CYRUS

NOAH CYRUS TO PERFORM AT SPACE 15TWENTY IN LOS ANGELES IN SUPPORT OF MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

DEBUTS APPAREL COLLECTION IN COLLABORATION WITH THE CRYSTAL CAMPAIGN

100% OF PROCEEDS TO GO TO NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THE JED FOUNDATION

‘LONELY’

THE LONELY COLLECTION


In honor of World Mental Health Day, RECORDS/Columbia Records artist Noah Cyrus will be performing an acoustic set at Los Angeles’ Space 15Twenty on Saturday, October 19 in partnership with The Crystal Campaign. “A LONELY ACOUSTIC SESSION” will feature Cyrus performing songs for fans and friends, followed by a Q&A and discussion about mental health.
 
Today, Noah Cyrus also launched The LONELY Collection, in collaboration with The Crystal Campaign. Cyrus will donate 100% of her proceeds in support of non-profit organization The Jed Foundation, which protects emotional health and prevents suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults. Mental health issues are the leading cause of disability worldwide, and cases of anxiety, depression, and suicide have risen sharply in the last decade.
 
The LONELY Collection, which features a soirée of metaphysical icons and cartoon symbols alongside The Crystal Campaign’s hallmark earth-stone definitions, will include premium sweatshirts and sweatpants creatively designed by Cyrus. The capsule weaves delicately into Noah’s long- standing affinity toward mental health issues in her music, and the challenges they pose for young people in today’s increasingly globalized world. An advocate herself, Cyrus spoke candidly about mental health awareness on an expert panel with Lauv and The Jed Foundation last week – the apparel collection is inspired by her latest single, “Lonely.”
 
The event tomorrow is presented by The Crystal Campaign, mental health advocacy organization on a mission to make mental health as important and common as physical health. The unique event will open with a crystal healing meditation by Unplug guru and author Megan Monahan. Past talent featured in the campaign includes Pharrell Williams, Willow Smith, J Balvin, and Gigi Gorgeous. “We are intentionally leveraging everyday platforms of fashion, entertainment, and technology to create a global conversation to remove the stigma of mental health,” says campaign CEO Andrei Najjar.” Urban Outfitters has also partnered with the Crystal Campaign with 100% of the proceeds from the purchase of the Pendant Necklace going toward mental health advocacy and direct relief efforts in support of the non-profit organization To Write Love On Her Arms.
 
The release of the collection falls in tandem with the global online rollout of The Crystal Campaign’s Pendant Necklace with Urban Outfitters. To support the releases, The Crystal Campaign will be holding “A LONELY ACOUSTIC SESSION” at venue Space 15Twenty in Los Angeles starring Noah Cyrus. The Pendant Necklace launched at Urban Outfitters in honor of World Mental Health Day on Thursday, October 10th, and Noah Cyrus’ apparel collection is available from today HERE.
 
“The Jed Foundation is thrilled to partner with The Crystal Campaign and Noah Cyrus to raise awareness about mental health and to encourage more dialogue about these important issues,“ shared Katie Cunningham, JED’s Chief Programs and Operations Officer.
 
The Crystal Campaign aims to connect 1 million people with mental health resources within its first year. According to CEO Andrei Najjar, “We are intentionally leveraging everyday platforms of fashion, entertainment, and technology to create a global conversation and remove the stigma of mental health, while funding resources that directly help people.” TCC will continue a global rollout of fashion and entertainment partnerships and expand its digital magazine to erase the stigma surrounding mental health.
 
Noah Cyrus’ latest release ‘Lonely’ was accompanied by the stunning video co-directed by Symone Ridgell and Noah herself. The video features choir members sourced by The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Music Program, and perfectly encapsulates the heart wrenching isolation and need for human connection that the song – penned by Noah – so beautifully conveys. 
 
“It’s about vulnerability, trauma and dropping your facade, but also about human connection and finding strength among others (one of the many reasons it felt particularly powerful to work with the Los Angeles LGBT Center).”  Co-director Symone Ridgell reveals. “Lyrically, Noah’s music is always strikingly raw, and for this song, a video that reflects that is the only kind that could be justified to accompany it.” Noah elaborates: “Sometimes there can be dozens of people around you but you still feel lonely. I wanted the video to show what it could really feel like.”
 
Watch the video for ‘Lonely’ HERE.
 
This summer, 19-year-old Noah Cyrus returned with her timeless single ‘July,’ which continues to gain momentum globally, approaching 40-million combined global streams to date, the track is currently the cover of Spotify’s esteemed Pop Rising Playlist and has climbed to an average of 2 million streams per week on Spotify alone. Watch the music video for ‘July’ HERE.

BILLY RAY CYRUS
AND LIL NAS X WIN BET HIP HOP AWARDS

Billy Ray Cyrus is making room on the trophy shelf again as the BET Hip Hop Awards honors the Flatwoods, Kentucky singer-songwriter with two trophies for Best Collab, Duo or Group and Single of the Year with Lil Nas X on the record shattering 19-week No. 1 “Old Town Road” (remix, featuring Cyrus).

“Thank you to the BET Hip Hop Awards and hip hop/rap community for the Best Collab and Single of the Year wins. You kept OTR at No. 1 for 19 consecutive weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home and world. I’m dedicating these wins to Mr. Nipsey Hussle – a legend gone way too soon,” Cyrus shared.

Recently, Cyrus learned he was nominated in the Musical Event of the Year category with Lil Nas X during the 53rd CMA Awards after taking home two MTV VMA Moonmen for Song of the Year and Best Direction for Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (Remix, featuring Cyrus).”

About Billy Ray Cyrus:
Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, “Achy Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After “Achy Breaky Heart,” Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher’m I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley. Recently, Cyrus has shattered records with Lil Nas X with the global smash, “Old Town Road,” which has remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 consecutive weeks. Returning to his Kentucky roots, BBR Music Group/BMG released Cyrus’s new single on July 19 with emerging artist Johnny McGuire titled, “Chevys and Fords,” which Rolling Stone Country proclaimed is “a gently rocking country tune brimming with Springsteen-inspired, vehicle-based nostalgia…finds the two vocalists singing about how they come from a long line of Chevys and Fords.’

Billy Ray Cyrus to Debut New Album

BMG TO RELEASE MUCH-ANTICIPATED BILLY RAY CYRUS ALBUM THE SNAKEDOCTOR CIRCUS MAY 24

While Billy Ray Cyrus shares the No. 1 song on all music streaming platforms worldwide with the remix of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” Cyrus is equally excited about the release of his long-planned album, The SnakeDoctor Circus. Cyrus and BMG planned to release the concept record on May 24 long before the phenomenon of “Old Town Road.”

“Life is a series of adjustments. I’ve been working on this album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, for more than two years now. In January this year, my label, BMG, had planned and scheduled the release of this album May 24. Twenty-seven days ago, I heard a song from Lil Nas X and felt the injustice of the way he was being treated. You just don’t pull the rug out from under someone like that. He impacted a worldwide psyche and touched a universal harmony. That’s when I made the adjustment in my schedule, went to the studio, wrote a new verse and sang on ‘Old Town Road’ with Lil Nas X,” said Cyrus.

Cyrus recorded The SnakeDoctor Circus in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with some of the most respected musicians, including Cyrus’ longtime collaborator and songwriting mentor, Don Von Tress, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dewey Lyndon “Spooner” Oldham (piano), Nashville Musician’s Hall of Fame Member Will McFarlane, as well as David Hood (bass guitar), Kelvin Holly (electric/acoustic/bass guitar), Bekka Bramlett (vocals, tambourine), Kimi Samson (violin, viola, piano), Caleb Elliott (cello), Will McFarlane (electric guitar), James LeBlanc (electric guitar), Mike ‘Dillon’ Curington (drums), John Brannen (acoustic guitar, harmonica), Shonna Tucker (bass guitar), Angela Hacker (vocals), Larry Byrom (piano), Mick Utley (piano), Johnny Monteagle (drums, baritone sax, synth) and Jimmy Nutt (acoustic/electric guitars, tambourine, percussion). Nutt, a Grammy®-winning recording engineer, also mixed The SnakeDoctor Circus.   

It’s a full circle moment for Cyrus because Von Tress wrote the multi-platinum smash “Achy Breaky Heart” on Cyrus’ record-breaking debut album Some Gave All. Cyrus penned “Some Gave All” about a Vietnam veteran in 1989 only to meet Von Tress, whom is also a Vietnam veteran, a few years later. The collaboration between the two songwriting titans more than 25 years ago continues with new music on The SnakeDoctor Circus.

ALMA Releases New Single & Music Video for “When I Die”

Finnish pop powerhouse ALMA releases new single and music video for “When I Die” via Casablanca Records / Universal / Warner / Virgin EMI & PME today.  Listen HERE.  Watch HERE.

Produced and written by ALMA, Justin Tranter, and Mike Sabbath “When I Die” is the second installment from her highly anticipated debut album Have You Seen Her? set for release on the 5th of April 2019. It also marks the start of a period of continuous activity, which will see fans receive a new track with accompanying visual episodically into its release.

Shot in her native Finland and directed by celebrated Finish director Miikka Lommi, the video for “When I Die”depicts a gothic last supper scene and ALMA digging her own grave. “This song was born from a big conversation about when and how we leave the world is so out of our control. We spend so much time worrying about things out of our control, we’re always trying to be better, richer, more successful. We rarely appreciate the moments in front of us. Go to the party, blow your money (even if you have work tomorrow) you will survive!” says ALMA. “I wanted the video to look like our last party, what might the night look like if we knew this was it.” 

“When I Die” highlights ALMA’s unique voice as a writer; honest, brave and fresh. As she says, “I’ve spent a lot of my life being told who to be, what to say or how to behave by the world. There’s constant pressure on us all to fit in and my music is about exactly the opposite. I want my fans to feel like they can be whoever, say whatever and look however when they listen to my music. Here you are accepted no matter what.”

ALMA – a 23-year-old with neon green hair, a magnetic punk attitude and a voice that could demolish buildings is part of a new wave of female powerhouses that have something say. Engaged and opinionated on issues from women’s rights to body positivity and sexuality ALMA is forward thinking and making a change.

Following her critically acclaimed EP “Dye My Hair” with platinum single “Chasing Highs”, smash track “Phases” FT French Montana (including an exclusive Charli XCX directed video) and her 2018 mixtape Heavy Rules;  ALMA has garnered over 350 million combined Spotify plays and topped iTunes charts around the world.

ALMA’s worked extensively with her friends Charli XCX, Tove Lo, Zara Larsson, Dua Lipa, Halsey, and Miley Cyrus but to name a few, both live and in the studio and garnered support the world over.

Wrapping up 2018 on the road with long term collaborator and friend  this year’s headline dates promise an entirely new show, new music and some very special surprises along the way.

Update On The Woolsey Fire

By Reid Urban

Cal Fire authorities on Monday updated the number of structures that were set ablaze as a result of the Woolsey Fire. That number now sits at more than 370 structures.

The fire itself has burned more than 91,000 acres. Mandatory evacuation orders remain in effects for the cities of Mailbu, Calabasas and Hidden Hills, as well as the communities of West Hills, Monte Nido, Gated Oaks and Topanga. Meanwhile, the evacuation orders have been lifted for both Agoura Hills and Westlake Village.

Structures that have burned include vineyards, historical sites and homes, including residences of many popular celebrities like Gerard Butler, director Scott Derrickson, and musician Miley Cyrus. More than 250,000 people have displaced as a result of the fires. Three firefighters have sustained injuries battling the flames.

Malibu City Councilman Skylar Peak said on Saturday about the fire, “This is the most destructive and devastating fire that I’ve witnessed since the 1993 fires.”

California Governor Jerry Brown requested a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration to bolster the ongoing emergency response battling the major fires in both the LA and Ventura Counties, as well as in Butte County where the Camp Fire continues to spread.
