Jahleel Kamara Set to Star in “Shadow Force”!


It was recently announced that impressive young actor Jahleel Kamara, of Adunni Rose Talent Agency, will be starring in Lionsgate’s upcoming action-thriller Shadow Force, which has commenced production in Colombia.

The studio further announced that Mark Strong, Marvin “Krondon” Jones III, Natalia Reyes, Yoson An, Ed Quinn, Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Cliff “Method Man” Smith will also star, alongside Kerry Washington and Omar Sy in the film, which is being directed by Joe Carnahan.

In Shadow Force, Kyrah (Washington) and Isaac (Sy) were once the leaders of a multinational special forces group, called Shadow Force. They broke the rules by falling in love, and in order to protect their son, they went underground. With a large bounty on their heads, and the vengeful Shadow Force hot on their trail, one family’s fight becomes all-out war.

Jahleel, age 6, has been acting for two years. His credits include Disney+’s “Rise,” a recurring role on ABC’s “Manifest,” the Sundance feature film Nanny, BET+’s B Boy Blues, ABC/Hulu’s “Bammas,” and Amazon Prime’s “Harlem.”

Jeffrey Gaines to Perform Intimate New York Shows


Jeffrey Gaines has been heralded for his soul-searching lyrics and his powerful live performances. With only his voice and a guitar for accompaniment, Gaines has earned a reputation as a captivating performer, entertaining his audiences worldwide.

Perhaps most widely recognized for his deeply felt interpretation of Peter Gabriel’s classic hit “In Your Eyes”, the soulful singer and sophisticated songwriter brings his unique talents to New York, first out to the Hamptons on Long Island this October and then on to New York City in November, 2022.

Throughout his three-decade recording career, Gaines has maintained an impressive standard for soul-searching, introspective lyrics and catchy, uplifting melodies.

Since bursting on the scene with his self-titled 1992 debut album, the charismatic singer-songwriter-guitarist has built a beloved body of recordings that’s won him a large and deeply devoted international fan base.

He has sold out theaters and clubs throughout North America and Europe, and has earned high respect from his peers, Gaines was featured as Special Guest on tours with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Tracy Chapman, Stevie Nicks and Sheryl Crow, among many others.

“The biggest pleasure I derive from this is playing live,” Gaines notes. “There’s nothing more satisfying for me than a good live gig. I’m in control, but the audience can take it to a place that’s higher than I can imagine. When I show up for a live gig, I don’t need much, there’s no rider. It’s just, turn it on, let the audience in, and we’ll do the rest. It’s the best job anyone could ever have.”

Jeffrey also recently re-released two poignant selections from his self-titled debut, the impactful “Choices” and “Why?,” which deal with the controversial subject matter of abortion and gun rights, respectively - only a few weeks after the Supreme Court revoked the rights for American citizens to choose, and just days after the 356th (at the time of printing) mass shooting in the U.S. happened in 2022.

Greg Hoy and The Boys Release New EP!!


“Demons At Night”, the new four song EP by Greg Hoy & The Boys is now available on Bandcamp, Spotify and all the major services with a YouTube video release planned for sometime in the coming week.

Inspired and recorded in isolation during the pandemic just after the passing of Eddie Van Halen, the riffs and feelings recall a simpler time of big drums, big riffs, and big hair. And while the riffs were hot and heavy, the climate of recording in the studio together was quite the opposite.

Songwriter Greg Hoy send demos to the east coast. Engineer Tom Beaujour, who has engineered Guided by Voices, Nada Surf, and co-authored the 80’s hair metal book Nothing But A Good Time, recorded drummer David E. Richman at his Nuthouse Studios in northern NJ.

With some fantastic Van Halen-esque solo work by western Pennsylvania guitarist Jon Reider and additional production by Nate Fink in San Francisco, the EP is a refreshing uplift from the current climate.

The band is touring Rocktober on the east coast starting October 11th in New York City for their DEMONS AT NIGHT TOUR!

East Bay, CA-based songwriter Greg Hoy - who’s recorded with Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies), Sylvia Massy (Johnny Cash, Tom Petty), and John Vanderslice (Spoon, Nada Surf) - toured 25 dates across the US in the fall of 2021 supporting his latest vinyl LP release Cacophony.

Comparisons to Jack White, Tom Petty, and Brittany Howard aside, the veteran songwriter has been a long time critical favorite. Hip-hop icon Ice-T appeared in his recent music video for Can You Take It? which was nominated for a California Music Video Award.

Picked to take part in the 2021 Durango Songwriters Showcase for Film & TV, his songs have been heard on networks such as the CW, HBO, and MTV, as well as in commercials for Pinterest, Adobe, and American Express.

Time Out NY says, Hoy’s music is fueled by straight up melodicism. Red Red Wine on a Sunday says, Greg’s records are deep - like peeling layers off an onion - each song is a revelation! Broken 8 says his work ... shines with a focused punk rock swagger.

Otherish Release Video for “Their Mistake”!


Acclaimed UK based eclectic rock band Otherish, has released the video for “Their Mistake”, a smashing single from the recently released album “Gone Wrong Rainbow Blues”, to YouTube.

Who are Otherish? George, Paul, Mark and Francis: Irish-English outsiders, musician-poets, sweethearts, alchemically active friends. 4 gifted misfits with confusing outsider music career pedigrees: together and alone, they have toured the world, lived the dream, done their time, somehow survived as musicians, friends, and brothers.

“I suppose the thing about ‘Their Mistake’ is, it’s trying to be a frolicsome tune engaging with a heavy notion, how we seem stuck in a feedback loop with those who manifest our collective shadow, who thus become ever more powerful and inevitably use that power to push us all ever deeper into the shadow, to the point of darkening our spirit completely. But (and hurrah!), if they were to accomplish this all-consuming obsession, lifeless matter is all they’d win and all they’d become.”

- George.

“Gone Wrong Rainbow Blues”, 14 songs by George, Paul, and Francis. 3 songwriters: Paul, George, and Francis, with Mark, Paul’s brother, on drums. A fallen iridescence here, a cinema-sweep of themes and sounds: The 13/8 timed opener “Boil Me into Life”, with Paul’s improvised one-take speechsong, is probably unlike any other known music, heralding George’s rueful paean to the damaged soul of “England”; waves wash up on a Gael’s waking dream in Francis’ “Kingdom of the Birds”.

“Their Mistake” swanky broadside at spirit-sucking ghouls and their vapid acolytes gives way to elegiac lost-friend memorizing with “Planxty Mark Loudon”; “Car Park” finds itself on the brink in the rain, then disintegrates to the sublime, teasing “Dreams He’s Awake” and a quest for “the good, the real, the beautiful”; “Come Away” lives in liminal worlds, between faery and human, at the water’s edge, far out to the West; “Loughshore Dim” also occurs by a shore, in the shivering air, in the 1970s near Lough Neagh; “Lies Today”, gently punching us in face for the ovine acquiescers that we (mostly) are; “My Lagan Sunrays” cavorts with the sparklewaters of Belfast’s river; “Gold in the Stormwaves” surrenders to the waves that shared space with our ancestors, the first living organisms; “Passing Show”, life’s petty-serious play, sweet flickering candle, heat, light and universes toying with time; “Right All The Time”, an epic message from the future.

“In the everywhere fallout of the gone wrong rainbow, Otherish treat listeners as intelligent and sensitive creatures. Gone Wrong Rainbow Blues, an articulate and original album, is made to be worthy of your time and could even be a modern classic” - Barbara Smandler.

Otherish go back a long way with each other, and always have a laugh when they are in each other’s company. They appear like a vector of the vanishing-rare uncynical gene, mapless, illuminated from within. Professorial buckeejits, nice funny guys, poet artists, witty and sharp. Powerful experience of life’s answerless questions, still here.

“Wonderful life forms evolved in an earthly paradise of natural creativity until finally discovered a mere 800 years ago, whereupon many of this pristine archipelago’s stranger and more beautiful lifeforms were butchered and eaten…” explains a friendly bletherer. “Otherish is a bit like medieval New Zealand”, he concludes. Another describes Otherish as “perched at the edge of the big plate everyone alive is on, looking around in all directions.”

Rob Eberle Presents New Single “Reckless”


Continuing his march up the stairway to stardom, burgeoning upstart Singer/Songwriter/Producer Rob Eberle has teamed up with powerful vocalist April Rose Gabrielli for “Reckless”, the latest offering from his forthcoming sophomore release.

The after-prom that was supposed to be the start of their lives was lost due to irresponsible intoxication. Two lovers attend a party, drink then drive and only one makes it out alive. Guilty of his actions, he can’t stop thinking about her; as if she’s haunting him.

He can’t remember much, just sirens.

Rob writes all of his own music, lyrics and works with various producers to create unique moments within his songs. Each one of Eberle’s songs are stories and moments into his life and others around him.

Influences from an eclectic group of artists such as FINNEAS & Billie Eilish all the way to Madison Beer, Olivia Rodrigo and Panic! At the Disco have helped to create Eberle’s genre bending darker-alternative to traditional Pop Rock.

Rob Eberle is a young, versatile singer and songwriter and producer from Long Island, NY. Rob’s ability to capture snapshots of his life and other’s experiences is a special gift that separates him from lyricists within his genre.

With the release of his debut EP, “WHERE’S MY MIND?” the 17-year-old New York native captures what it truly means to be heartbroken. Since the release of Eberle’s first single, “Enough in 2020”, he continues to raise the bar with impeccable lyricism.

Currently working on the release of his sophomore EP, Eberle is gearing up for what’s next.
