Raffaella Piccirillo

RAFFAELLA PICCIRILLO: the Country Music duet NEL VENTO official video IS OUT!
After the launch of the new music project by Raffaella Piccirillo with the Virtual Puzzle acoustic CD, the new single Nel Vento is out. Passion, torment, obsession … these are the emotions that are protagonists. Nel Vento (In the Wind) understood as continuous perception “in the air” of the presence of the loved one. A journey on multiple time lines between memories, fears, desire and sensations. A song born in an acoustic way but now proposed in a more up-to-date and charming version, available in digital download and on all streaming platforms, together with the videoclip published on the YouTube channel of the Cremonese singer-songwriter. Song already previously defined as the most country song of the entire music album with the participation of Alessandro Amato in the male voice, with the particularity of lyrics sung both in English and in Italian honoring and reconfirming a production made in Italy-Overseas with the GoPla SoundLab Studios (USA and Mexico). Another attempt already discreetly successful (as stated in previous reviews) to bring in Italy folk music typically US in a mix at times sexy and veiled erotic, sometimes indie and slightly daring. Continue the journey of Raffaella and as the videoclip tells … music on the road! Link to the video: youtu.be/hTmL-qFB-wk
Credits: Video subject: Raffaella Piccirillo, Alessandro Amato Direction and editing video: Studio RP Lyrics and Music: Raffaella Piccirillo Produced: Studio RP, GoPla SoundLab Studios Mixing & Mastering: Arturo Gomez Plasencia Biography: Raffaella Piccirillo is an italian singer-songwriter born and raised in Cremona, with multiple contaminations. Inevitably influenced by typically US country folk styles, his music often blends with a more European indie rock. This artist is also inspired by the numerous collaborations that see her as a protagonist together with other independent artists from around the world, bringing her to experiment her versatile voice on more musical genres.

Grammy Nominee Chris Bennett and Jazz Giant Bill Marx Release New Album “Something Wonderful”

Grammy Nominee Chris Bennett and Jazz Giant Bill Marx have released an incredible new album entitled “Something Wonderful” which is now available worldwide. Download your copy today.

Grammy Nominee Chris Bennett got her professional start as a dancer and backup singer, playing Las Vegas and touring internationally behind Jim Nabors and Dean Martin. In Munich, Germany, Bennett met four-time Grammy winner, composer/producer Giorgio Moroder, the producer of Donna Summer, who is dubbed “The Father Of Disco,”, and was invited to join his emerging disco group Munich Machine. He chose Bennett to be the lead vocalist for their sophomore album that would contain a dance version of the Procol Harum rock classic, A Whiter Shade Of Pale. Bennett not only recorded the entire album, she also posed for the groundbreaking cover art. Bennett’s runway model’s body and movie star looks caused an international sensation, and made for one of the highest charting and highest grossing disco albums of 1978. Bennett worked with Moroder on several additional projects, including co-writing and singing the theme song to Midnight Express, Moroder’s bestselling soundtrack, which earned her a Grammy Nomination.

Bennett has appeared behind some of the biggest performers in music history, including backing disco diva Donna Summer on several of her biggest hits, including “MacArthur Park” and “Heaven Knows,” as well as working with Johnny Mathis and Rita Coolidge. As a songwriter, Bennett’s songs have been recorded by artists such as Tina Turner, The Manhattan Transfer, The Three Degrees, and Keb Mo.

Bennett is celebrating the release of her 12th album, “Something Wonderful” with just piano and voice, accompanied by jazz giant Bill Marx on the piano. A musical prodigy, Bill Marx is the heir to Hollywood royalty as the eldest son of Harpo Marx, and nephew of Groucho Marx of the legendary comedy family the “Marx Brothers”. Bill Marx is the musician who arranged his father’s most famous repertoire for the harp. “Something Wonderful” is an amazing “time- traveling” adventure with Chris Bennett through the Great American Songbook, with Marx as her guide.

Faith and Harry Rowan: “Just Be There” by Devin Lloyd

Photo by Columbia SC photographer Sean Rayford

A press release came across my email recently and I couldn’t help but notice….It was regarding 2 adorable young children, and I had to stop and listen. It was a haunting and compelling song entitled “Just Be There”, with captivating vocals and what I felt to be a heartfelt message. After researching the teen artists I liked them even more.

Faith and Harry ages 13 and 11 began at age 3 playing violin and classical music. At age 9 Faith began to compose her very own songs and lyrics. The two are multi-instrumentalists, accomplished on the violin, piano, and guitar. Harry also plays the drums and is a successful jazz pianist….Who does that? Especially at age 13 and 11….? I then found out these children write for magazines, and raise awareness to keep music in schools.

Faith sings the lyrics of the song as though she’s going through the loss of a friendship. Her voice is sultry and surprisingly mature. The song has a relevant topic and a certain drawing and addicting flair. It’s passionate, dramatic, and full of life. I listened to it several times, and then once again. Great job guys….keep it up! All of their hard work is paying off as they are accomplishing so much at such a young age, and should be congratulated.

I would certainly add this tune to my playlist. It’s melodic, and again very maturely composed. I’m waiting to see what is in the near future for these kids, as they have the whole package and I’m sure will go extremely far in the music world.

Olga Perry: “A Utopia of Fantasy in the World of Art” by Eileen Shapiro

Surrealistic, fantasy, artist Olga Perry has opened up an electrifying, orgasmic world of self-creation in the world of art. A powerfully imaginative painter, realistic and relevant composer of sculpture, music video extraordinaire, classical keyboardist and songwriter, Olga uses her heart and every soulful resource and essence necessary to create.

After fleeing from Russia where she was a medical doctor, and raising a daughter as a single parent, she realized a new life in a strange land with two bags of belongings and a 50 word English vocabulary. She looked at this as a challenge to conquer instead of a burden to face. Her art reflects life’s experiences with a colorful endearing aspect of insanity. As in most facets of insanity the brilliance is apparent.

A keyboardist in the popular Psyche band Revolushn, Olga paints incessantly, whenever she can. Her paintings are am anomaly of treasures which will be displayed in New York City this winter with a rare few for sale. I spoke with Olga regarding her artistry, her intentions and influences. Inspired to be a full-time artist by her beloved husband, Olga continues to create profound kaleidoscopes of quintessence of life and cosmic sensibilities.

When did you first discover the world of art?

For my fourth birthday my father bought me a set of illustrated children’s encyclopedia. In the art section I stumbled on an illustration of Sistine Madonna, an oil painting by the Italian artist Raphael Sanzio. The striking beauty and information – that someone pained it by hand, all of it was incomprehensible to me.

Since, I was haunted for years by the question:” How?” Despite my amazement, it was not “ the moment of enlightenment” when I realized I am going to be an artist. I did not believe in myself and everyone around me confirmed that Rafael was not a good idol to be f0llowed in godless communist reality. And I had some other options to try.

Do you have an artistic specialty?

I would say, I have a lot of things in the creation field that I equally enjoy. It gives me varieties of options. It is hard to create in the same media all the time, it is easy to burnout and get in a creative loop. It usually takes me about 3 months and then I take a romantic vacation with another media. So, I have varieties of oil paintings, sculptures, video, animation, music video clips, radio podcasts, the keyboard player of “Revolushn” and I love all these activities. I switch between all of them back and forth.

What inspires your work?

It is a specific long-term concentration on a subject. Developing a single thought to a big picture with scrupulous details. Life itself is an inspiration. Life is a miracle and we know very little about life. We could assume that God put his glorious hands on the matter or we could replace God with the Big Bang Theory, or we can be a program in the program, alien nature crossed with primates, Evolution and bla bla bla —. Still the possibilities are endless. The problem is the goal itself. We attempt to put life and nature in an artificial construction of abstract limited symbols.

My inspiration is the miracle of my own existence. The possibility of you talking to me at this moment in the endless Universal game is zero. To me the goal of life is to live. Life is not the tool to get some goal. And it is my part — to create reality to my likeness — that is my inspiration.

And my work is visual materialized bits of my world that I built as my playground.
It never comes as ” Oh, something hit me in my top chakra all of the sudden, and I created a masterpiece in flames of inspiration. Jeeez.. It is not physical, it is more spiritual, the world of story tales, and I can create my own, free to do as I like and to my best at this moment of my existence. Because it is not how good it will be. It is how much of your own life is in it. I call it creating by heart.

Do you use a specific technique?

I use a technique that I call “Despite my teachers rules technique”.

I was a very difficult student, always asking too many questions.
For years of studying, I was told a lot of things like– you should paint that and this, no one paints like that, you cannot do that and you have to do this. And later on “We do not want your paintings, bring us your sculptures, why don’t you paint landscapes, paint horses, paint flowers” – (galleries requirement), your art is hard to sell, people think that you are crazy. Do not laugh, literally.

I was discovered by one of the successful hair dressers in Carmel, CA. He fell in love with my paintings and said he wants to remake the Destiny of Andy Warhol. But he brought all my paintings back in 4 weeks, saying people are wondering what drugs this artist takes and they were not really happy to see my art.

Anyway, only my latest teacher and a mentor Jesse Coursaut taught me to paint exactly how I see it in my head. He developed a special way for my paintings, it includes – choice of surface, surface preparation, choice of media, and specific paint brands. Look at a few of my paintings and tell me, do you know the name of the technique? Maybe not, but after seeing my work once, next time you will know — this is Olga.

What is your artistic fantasy?

My biggest artistic fantasy came true. I am an artist.

For the first 40 years of my life I was hard headed, as a grown up in the USSR. A Medical Doctor, Ph.D., a Chemical engineer, a classical piano player, computer programmer and so on. After that I started a second life from scratch in the USA. New language, new culture, new history, new possibilities. I successfully deleted all of my left brain information and ended up living happily on the isolated island, with my favorite man in the history of humanity, and my animals, I grow my own food, and I am free to create my artist fantasy every day.

My previous life in Russia gave me a lot to think about. A very specific view of the world was drilled into my head. Then moving to other country was a big shock, it was a huge test of my identity. You have to change your language, the sound of your name, your culture, your friends and the style of communications. It is a very positive experience. It feels like being born again. It is a great challenge, it elevates life force and curiosity, it’s a mental reboot, an intellectual restart.

What do you see for your future artistic endeavors?

I would rather be surprised. Also, it is hard to surprise myself with my own fantasy. See, the great part of creating anything is the ability to keep us in the moment. It is impossible to paint or write music while thinking about the future or the past, unless it’s connected to the subject.
I really do not have time to think about what else this life will bring me in a certain subject. I simply do not have time or interest to look in that direction.

Do you have any coming up art shows?

Yes, January 2019, NY, Manhattan. This one is special to me. 12 years ago I had everything to start creating a collection. I secured a great teacher, a lot of energy and desire. I had just quit my position as a corporate manager in telecommunications. My man kindly said — just paint, I will provide you a roof and a piece of bread if you paint from your head and do not listen anyone. I gave myself 12 years to build up a collection and here I am.

Up to that point my annual shows in CA and CO were portraits exhibitions. I painted a few hundred portraits over the years as an everyday exercise for my skills. And my fantasy part of art was “under construction” belong to NFS and WIP (not for sale, work in progress).

Describe the theme of your collection.

Each painting is a story centered around the ever-lasting questions of humanity – where we are from, who we are, what are we doing here. In my work, I would rather emphasize imagination than follow passive observation of reality.

I like to execute it in minimalistic a way, few things, just enough to create a thought-provoking image. And the thought can be personal for everyone. I already checked it out, it’s proven. I tested it on my shows year-by-year, just like stand-up comedians try their jokes before they go on the stage.

How many paintings did you create for 12 years, how big is the collection?

I painted few hundred. But in the show I would like to present the most recent ones, those 4-5 “years old”. I started learning art late in my life. I was a professional fast learning individual at that point, knowing the rules — endless repetition, discipline, patience and a good teacher. Over the years I painted the best I could be at the moment.

I have rooms in my house filled with paintings listed by years 2005, 2006, 2007 and so on. With time, the mistakes were obvious, I would study the good parts. It was fun beyond comprehension and an exciting journey. The important thing, I had great support, all the blessings, love and admiration from my biggest art fan – my husband, and front man of “Revolushn”.

Garyk Lee: “LGBT Designer Creates Political Art That Makes A Difference: Don’t Be On The Wrong Side of History” by Eileen Shapiro

Separated by a powerful tree is Garyk Lee’s sensitive, haunting and compelling rendition of a humanity that cares as opposed to an apathetic community and the consequences. It’s an explosive message urging society to vote, become aware and involved.

On one side of the tree is a population branded by a kaleidoscope of color, laughter, fun, and parties, whereas the other side is marked by a dull, monochromatic, depressing, polluted, caged, society existing in a darkened, and oppressed world.

I spoke to Garyk hoping to grasp the exact meaning and influence of his poster and was rewarded with his thoughtful answers. The importance of his themed masterpiece is a relevant and current conundrum that affects us all….

Eileen Shapiro What inspired your newest drawing, which is bound to become iconic?

Garyk Lee Thank You…What really pushed me to create this vision of the country divided is the separation of children from their parents at the border as the parents sincerely came here to seek asylum. Their countries were becoming extremely dangerous and as any good parent…they were simply seeking refuge for their families. I was blown away with the stories of these …for lack of a better word…Concentration camps! Knowing what with social media we all have a voice…I decided to create a piece of Art with a strong message through little words.

Eileen Shapiro Can you describe exactly what was in your head when you created it?

Garyk Lee Being extremely upset with those precious children caged…I wanted to elude to the serious possibility that anyone that’s not in the bubble world our President seems to live in could end up being caged even if it’s through legislation passed that takes away their constitutional rights…It is clear, with this current administration getting in bed with far right, extreme evangelicals whose sole purpose is to be rid of the gay population is quite scary and more serious than most realize. I show all walks of humanity on both sides of the poster. A fantasy Happy Ever After on the Left and a doomed polluted, dark society on the right…While a harmonious society is never totally accomplished…Why not work towards it?

Eileen Shapiro What would you like to see happen with it?

Garyk Lee I would like to see it appear in as many places where people feel like their vote won’t matter…Each vote truly matters…seeing that less than half of America voted in 2016 is just wrong! I would like to see it up in businesses where young people gather…shared on the internet…used as a conduit to start discussions on how we can make a difference through being involved.

Eileen Shapiro Was this poster something that just came to you one day or have you thought about it for a while?

Garyk Lee It literally came to me in a day as most of my “Fine Art lifestyle” prints do…I have a vision and I put it away in my mind…as soon as I have a moment I quickly sketch it rough and then I know I won’t lose sight of it…Once I have time to start rendering…I then work on it until its complete…It can get timely as it’s both hand-drawn and computer-enhanced…It involves photographing individual elements and then dropping them to scale into the picture.

Eileen Shapiro How can one get a copy of it?

Garyk Lee It is available on my website as a limited edition 18″ x 24″ Glossy Poster…Click shop at the top of my site. www.garyklee.com

Eileen Shapiro What’s next for you? Will we be staying political?

Garyk Lee I’m sure I will always make my opinion heard if I’m in a world that requires us to stand up for our rights…Unfortunately, I don’t see that going away…So, in answer…I would say yes…As far as my Art…I will continually produce new lifestyle prints…I have a new one that I will release this month…Currently, I am in pre-production on my How to show for my Youtube channel…I will be shooting it this fall…It is actually a continuation from my docu-dramedy “Garyk Lee Retro Reflection” … A How-To Lifestyle show that helps to understand that living among a beautiful environment doesn’t have to cost you the farm…

Abby Zotz releases new Album 

Abby Zotz releases new Album

PRIMARY URL: abbyzmusic.com/

Critics from one end of North America to the other can’t seem to stop talking about Local Honey, the ambitious new album from Canadian singer/songwriter Abby Zotz, and just one listen to any of its stunning eleven tracks will clue you in as to why. Outfitted with a stylish production that features the caliber of high definition audio you would expect to find on a much more mainstream affair, Local Honey showcases an artist who has so much within herself to share with the world and has found the perfect medium in which to convey it. Her music speaks to the humbleness of mankind, but it also tells us a lot about the identity of Zotz as both a composer and as a human being.

“Big Hope,” one of the star singles from Local Honey, is by far one of the most exquisitely warm power ballads I’ve reviewed this year. Accompanied by a simple music video that features nothing more than Zotz playing an acoustic guitar and singing the affectionate lyrics of the song, “Big Hope” is a prime example of stripped down pop that utilizes melody over volume to capture our attention. Don’t let its surface minimalism deceive you though – beneath the delicate whisper of Zotz’ vocals and the accompanying instrumentation is a calculated arrangement that dexterously fuses influences from country, jazz and a touch of pop.

Although not one of the album’s singles, the song “Pirouette” is another essential excerpt from Local Honey that should be noted as one of the more evocative and poised compositions in Zotz’ repertoire. Focusing the spotlight squarely on her light, almost translucent singing while a storm of major key wonderment churns in the background, “Pirouette” has a timeless quality to it that is almost reminiscent of 1930’s vocal music. Zotz’ palate has so much depth to it, and this song is an excellent testament to her talents.

It would be criminal is any review of Local Honey failed to mention “Hush Baby Waltz,” which to me is tangible evidence that Abby Zotz isn’t just among the best singer/songwriters in the game right now; she towers over them. She doesn’t overcomplicate any of her music, but it’s moments like this one where there’s nothing but a guitar in her hands a voice to join it where we see just how melodically skilled she really is. She reaches into our hearts with Local Honey (and in this song especially), and the imprint she leaves behind isn’t one I’ll soon forget.

There’s a lot of reasons to be excited about pop music in general right now, but I don’t think anyone is garnering more attention and acclaim than Abby Zotz is. Rarely do I find myself agreeing with the majority of anyone on almost anything, but in this case the product is so divinely superior to everything else it’s up against that trying to deny its greatness would be futile. It’s still fairly early in her career to be certain, but if she keeps turning out records of this quality she’s going to find herself a part of the larger conversation in pop culture for some time to come.

The album Solitude is Oneself presents three music pieces, each in two versions: for electric piano (Rhodes) and for acoustic piano (Steinway). Therefore the six tracks…

Don’t see any negative aspects in Solitude. In Spanish there is only one word for Solitude and Loneliness (namely “Soledad”). Loneliness is a state of isolation, without dialog, feeling abandoned and without external points of reference. But I conceive Solitude as a highely creative state, in which one is faced to what one actually wants to achieve, with one’s thoughts, with one’s self.

1) Never Underestimate the Difficulties of Simple Things. Lots of times I have seen this in several persons – and in myself: when something is simple, easy and uncomplicated, we tend to underestimate it too much and its hidden difficulties end up tackling us. We leave to the last moment a text that seems easy to learn, and we do not assimilate it as we could. Or a chess game that is (really) won, but we feel over-confident, we play with superficiality, we make slight mistakes one after the other and lose control of the situation.

2) Too Much But Still Not Enough. The title aludes to current life in those human groups or societies that put an extremely strong stress in performance/efficiency at all costs, at any price. If you don’t get first prizes always, non-stop, you are a nobody. If you get a second place in a maraton where a thousand participated, your only merit is being the best of the losers. If you are the subchampion / runner-up of anything, nobody will remember you in a few years. This obsession for all or nothing leads to high levels of anxiety. All that you do is too much for your (mental, affective or physical) health, but anyway not enough for the system.

3) Waiting for Perfection is Waiting Forever: There are several forms of perfectionism, and some are harmful, noxious. We expect from others, or from ourselves, a perfection that belongs to an angelic world, not that of human beings. We hope that our partner does not have shortcomings or defects (Prince Charming Syndrome), we expect our teachers and parents to answer all our questions, we expect that our children have a perfect discipline, we hope to do an immaculate, faultless, unobjectionable job, always. Some human beings can do it (they can be called geniuses). For many others, such expectation can be a burden that slows us down, that undermines our energy, our motivation, our confidence in our strengths. The excess of perfectionism can paralyze. (Of course, the absence of any wish to improve is equally harmful.)

The ArtWork (Cover Art) of Solitude is Oneself shows a human face (concretely the composer’s) faced simmetrically to its silhouette, in black. This illustration alludes to the title. It is oneself (the person) facing his own solitude, his internal misterious being. A real human facing his own shadow. It is not a negative shadow: is the shadow of which Shamanism speaks, the own shadow from where one draws strength.

This album was released on Friday 17 August 2018 on Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Qobuz, Tidal, Amazon mp3 and nearly all streaming platforms you can imagine.

Fitzsimon And Brogan Break Boundaries On “Big Blue World”

Fitzsimon And Brogan Break Boundaries On “Big Blue World”

Track list:

1. Big Blue World – 2:42.

2. The Cutest and the Cruelest – 3:37.

3. Blue Velvet – 4:02.

4. The Downing Pool – 3:15.

5. Girl in a Gilded Cage – 2:36.

6. One Minute Every Hour – 4:35.

7. Venus in Reverse – 4:50.

8. Someone I Know – 2:29.

9. The Wounds are Healing – 3:59.

10. God Given Right – 3:03.

The duo of Londoners Neil Fitzsimon and Bee Brogan have been developing a pretty respectable career in recent years after their exodus from Pretty Blue Gun and after going through several labels, which makes the very positive receptions of their work much more fascinating. Add to that equation guest musicians that played for the likes of the Moody Blues or Eric Clapton and you have Fitzsimon and Brogan, now presenting a very great compilation of Pop Rock tracks in their brand new album, Big Blue World.

What makes this collaboration so appealing is the fact that they cannot be pigeon-hold like the vast majority of Pop Rock bands that are always proliferating in the business and that is something that can make a huge difference. Naturally, they come from the English music scene, where versatility and experimentation is always there almost by default, which is quite helpful for that. They are not only focused in making great songs, but they also have that curiosity to stretch artistically that makes musicians great.

So, what do have here in Big Blue World? Just by looking at the cover we can tell that we are not going to find a typical album: the image of Earth broken in two, almost giving “birth” to a new one, is as powerful as modern album covers can go and they show a level consciousness that is quite different to the usual Pop bands in the business. Album covers can’t make an album good or bad, but their goal is to amaze or at least intrigue the potential listener and this one does just that.

The great thing about the music on this album is the fact that each track is its own musical entity; you can find a wide variety of influences here and that makes for a much more compelling and intriguing listen. For example, God Given Right, the last song on the album, evokes some early 80s influences like The Clash and then you hear something like Blue Velvet, that has a few Folk influences and you can’t help but to be amazed at the fact that such opposites influences are coexistent in the same body of work.

One point I would like to signal is the fact that modern Rock musicians tend to tone down their ferocity and not have that kind of raw appeal that the great bands had back in the day; while I cannot dare to declare that Fitzsimon and Brogan have the same venom than, say, the Sex Pistols, I can safely say that they have a bit more of roughness going on than the average modern band and that is something worth celebrating–the modern Rock scene needs a bit more of that.

I will admit that one part that truly got me about this album was the fact that it has thick layers of guitar that just sound incredible with headphones; the production is top notch and that is another point to take into consideration when analyzing this album because it gives a little bit of balance to what is such a varied musical effort.

At the end of the day, Fitzsimon and Brogan’s Big Blue World is a pretty talented, varied and fascinating album that is worth having in your collection. If you are the kind of listener that likes Pop Rock, but also wants something a bit more musical, then this is the best choice for you.
