TYLER JACOB

East coast born and bred, Tyler Jacob is a singer/songwriter who got his start in the industry after being discovered singing on the trains of NYC.

At the age of 5 years old, Tyler Jacob started singing and performing in school plays. Tyler says that “I’ve always wanted to sing. It was a natural thing for me.” His family recalls little Tyler putting on shows in the family living room.

“I don’t come from a family of singers. I’m the only one.” 

But it wasn’t until his freshmen year in high school did he realize others thought he had a gift, when he was accidentally placed in a choir class. “The choir teacher asked me to sing, so she could classify my voice.” The rest is history. After the choir teacher heard Tyler’s voice, she had him transferred to Creative Arts High School (CAHS) in Camden, New Jersey.

Tyler’s passion to sing, write and perform his own music, in English and Spanish, pushed him after he graduated from CAHS to move to the big Apple to pursue his singing career. Since then he has gone on to win numerous talent shows , performed on many stages across the US, opened up for Grammy Award winner, Brandy Norwood, and logged studio time with Carvin & Ivan (Chris Brown, Musiq Soulchild, Mario), and Andrea Martin (Leona Lewis, Monica, Mary J. Blige).  

Tyler credits artists like Brandy, Eryka Badu, Lauryn Hill, Aaliyah, Jon B, Marc Anthony, Tank, Maxwell, as some of his influences.

N.E.R.D.’s new single “Lemon” with ROLI’s new Studiopack

Remix N.E.R.D.’s new single “Lemon” with ROLI’s groundbreaking new Studiopack

Anyone can now make their own songs with the featured content of “Lemon,” the hit song from N.E.R.D. that features Rihanna rapping

The beats of “Lemon,” the surprising new single from Pharrell Williams’ N.E.R.D. band, are now freely available for all music-makers to play and adapt in ROLI’s NOISE app.

Breaking the mold of the traditional soundpack, “Lemon by N.E.R.D” is a “Studiopack” that deconstructs the song into easy-to-use sonic elements that anyone can build back up and take in their own creative direction. Simply touching the screen of a smartphone or tablet brings the song’s sounds to life. Explore the pack today in NOISE, the free music creation app from ROLI.

ROLI’s collection of innovative NOISE Studiopacks is growing quickly. The recently released “Happy by Pharrell” — also free in NOISE — breaks down the beats, basslines, and Pharrell’s own vocals in “Happy,” the chart-smashing global hit.

Studiopacks offer an exciting new way into music for fans, who can move from listening to their favorite songs to actively creating music based on those songs. The packs also offer artists a way to reach new audiences. In coming months ROLI will release more Studiopacks to complement the world-class collection of sounds already available in NOISE.

“Lemon” is the first song since 2010 from N.E.R.D., the legendary group that includes singer-producer Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Hayley. Featuring Rihanna, it marks the first time that superstars Pharrell and Rihanna have performed together in a song. “Lemon” released on November 1 with an electrifying video starring Rihanna and the dancer Mette Towley.

The Studiopack release follows Pharrell’s appointment as ROLI’s Chief Creative Officer on October 28. Over the course of a long-term partnership, he will work with the ROLI team to develop revolutionary musical instruments that are iconic, digitally connected, and accessible to all. Their collaboration will accelerate the arc of innovation that began with ROLI’s award-winning Seaboard and BLOCKS, which have been called “two of the most compelling music-making devices in recent memory.”

Roland Lamb, founder and CEO of ROLI, said: “The ‘Happy by Pharrell’ and ‘Lemon by N.E.R.D.’ Studiopacks are just the beginning of our exciting work with Pharrell and other artists.” “Lemon by N.E.R.D.” is now available to download for free in ROLI’s NOISE app. ROLI founder Roland Lamb and Pharrell Williams, ROLI’s new Chief Creative Officer, discuss music creation at ROLI’s East London headquarters. Rihanna and the dancer Mette Towley feature in the hit music video for “Lemon.” The song marks the first time that superstars Pharrell Williams and Rihanna have produced a song together. © N.E.R.D Music, LLC under exclusive license to Columbia Records, a Division of Sony Music Entertainment

WATCH ON PAPER

AN XXTRA UGLY MIXTAPE RELEASING THIS FALL


“If there is anyone who truly doesn’t give a fuck, it’s LA’s newest, and arguably soon to be best export, DUCKWRTH.” – Paper 

Today, critically acclaimed Los Angeles rapper DUCKWRTH shares the music video for his new single “Michuul.” 

Watch it HERE.

Paper praised him writing, “The rapper, for lack of a better descriptor expertly blends hip hop, funk and rock to create a truly eccentric and undisputedly unique sound (think Outkast meets N.E.R.D. meets something entirely out of this world.”

The clip strikes the balance between kinetic energy and gonzo artistry, speaking to DUCKWRTH’s innate inimitability.

His debut EP, AN XXTRA UGLY MIXTAPE arrives very soon via Republic Records.

DUCKWRTH started igniting waves with the release of his 2016 independent album I’M UUGLY. The standout “I’M DEAD” [feat. Sabrina Claudio] cumulatively racked up over 1.3 million Spotify streams as he averages over 203K plays per month in addition to garnering acclaim from XXL, Vibe, Respect Mag, Fact, San Francisco Chronicle, and more. Infusing an old-school twist into decidedly forward-thinking rap, DUCKWRTH arrives as a real game-changer.

THE COCKTAIL GUIDE TO THE GALAXY

For the first time ever comes a book that unites two of the best things in the world: nerd culture, and booze. Because if anything is true, it’s that nerds are awesome, and many of us like to throw back an adult beverage or two while re-watching Firefly for the seventeenth time. The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy, by Andy Heidel, the notable owner of The Way Station in Brooklyn, NY; will be on-sale September 26, 2017. A true mecca for nerd culture, The Way Station has found its way on to numerous lists of the best sci-fi bars and is even complete with a TARDIS themed bathroom.

Including over 100 fun and easy to make recipes – these cocktails are simple to make with no crazy ingredients – The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy features more of the themed cocktails Heidel’s patrons know and love and is filled with pop culture references from Metropolis, to Guardians of the Galaxy, to Star Wars, and everything in between. Some of the recipes include:

·         Doc B’s Wakeup Juice (Back to the Future)

·         Sonic Screwdrivers (Doctor Who)

·         Shirley Temple of Doom (Indiana Jones)

·         Jameson T. Kirk (Star Trek)

MARVEL DEFENDERS #1 SOLD OUT!

Individually, they’ve kept the city of New York safe from its biggest threats. Together, they’re a force to be reckoned with – and the world agrees! Ahead of its highly anticipated second issue, Marvel is pleased to announce that DEFENDERS #1 has sold out and will immediately return for a second printing.

Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist have all had their share of hard fights while protecting the streets of their city. But with Diamondback having returned from the dead, The Defenders are now being targeted – and it’s a fight they can only win if they stand together. Writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez bring their A-game to a story that Comicsverse calls “a fantastic beginning to a series perfect for both long-time fans and new fans looking to scratch The DEFENDERS itch before the new season on Netflix.”

 

 

“The Defenders may not appeal to readers specifically hoping for a traditional take on this superhero team, but anyone who enjoyed Brian Bendis’ work on books like Daredevil and Alias will be happy to see him return to this cast of characters. And with David Marquez at the helm, this series immediately gets off to a strong start. – IGN

 

“Defenders #1 feels a lot like a veteran musician revisiting the sound that made him great (and won Bendis Eisners) over a decade ago.” – Graphic Policy

 

“This team might not be A-listers like the Avengers, but that doesn’t mean that Defenders still don’t pack a heck of a punch.” – Newsarama

 

 

Don’t miss the comic everyone is talking about when it makes its way back to comic shops this July. Already caught up and itching for more? Make sure you pick up DEFENDERS #2 when it hits comic shops next week!
