Joe Newtz launches 2018 Unplugged Summer Tour

I’ll also play a few cover songs, but be expected to get hit with a heavy dose of original music in a format similar to the popular MTV ‘Unplugged’ shows.”

— Joe Newtz

BEAVER, PA, USA, June 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Joe Newtz launches his Beaver County, Pennsylvania Unplugged Summer Tour this Friday, June 22 at Kelly’s Riverside Saloon in Bridgewater with a special 1-hour show. The Vanport Township singer-songwriter will take the stage at 7 p.m. and play an acoustic-based set that includes tracks from his 2015 CD release “Crossing Over” album, as well as a few new tunes from his next release.

His other tour dates:
June 23 — J. Kells Front Door Tavern, South Beaver Township.
July 6 — Wooley Bully’s, New Brighton.
Aug. 3 — Seven Oaks Country Club, Ohioville.
Aug. 31 — J. Kells Front Door Tavern.
Sept. 1 — Kelly’s Riverside Saloon.
Sept. 14 — Wooley Bully’s.

He also booked a July 27 show at Steamworks Creative in Hampton Township.

Signed to Big Noise Records, he lists influences as far-ranging as Genesis, the Outlaws, Luther Vandross and Incubus but says his sound is most similar to another of his favorite bands, Toad the Wet Sprocket.

"Over the last year, I've received requests about performing stripped-down versions of the songs from “Crossing Over,”
so I reached out to some local venues that seemed excited about doing acoustic shows that run a little earlier than the traditional local rock shows that typically go from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.”

“There are folks that want to go out after dinner and check out a more intimate show that doesn’t keep them out all night.” Newtz is hoping to dial-in to those fans.

Crossing over can be purchased at CD Baby at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/joenewtz. His artist website is www.joenewtz.com/music.

LONDON, LONDON, UK, June 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The founder of Christ Embassy – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome will be the host of the 9th edition of the International Music Concert. The event will take place on June 24th in Lagos, Nigeria. The pastor is organizing this event in order to gather talented people who wish to share their love of God and talents on stage, in front of other Christian believers. The massive gospel event will happen at the LoveWorld Convocation Area, in Lagos.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has been hosting the International Music Concert since its very first edition. He organized this event with the goal of giving back to the community by providing a stage for gifted artists.

The goal of this event is to unify performers from all over the country through song and dance and create “an uplifting experience for everyone attending”. The talent show will feature a mixture of rap, pop, hip hop, along with various other types of performance arts. Moreover, the event will also feature Pastor Chris's third album, which is a compilation of voices of the most popular ministers from the Believer's LoveWorld. He previously stated that his album contains "truths and messages that have the ability to transform and change societies all around the world".

Furthermore, the The International Music Concert is related to LoveWorld's LIMA event, which will award respected gospel singers.

Jennifer Stigliani Bowen to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Music, dance, visual arts and yoga have unequivocally been proved to promote remarkably therapeutic effects on our minds, bodies and souls. But with a tremendous amount of people still not aware of its superior benefits, awareness of these tools is crucial. What if there was an individual so exceptionally skilled in the healing arts with such a profound ability to help people that her work literally triggers others to be their greatest selves?

Jennifer is an esteemed healing artist, yoga instructor, middle eastern dancer and exceptional vocalist. She has an undergrad degree in visual arts and a graduate degree in Chinese and East Asian Studies and has exhibited world- wide.

“I have combined languages with the visual and healing arts because they are truly a magical balm to soothe the traumas that many of us experience in our lives,” says Jennifer. “The way I resourcefully combine all of these various healing arts in unique combinations has brought my students all over the world particularly transformational results.”

Jennifer was profoundly inspired by her extremely resilient sense of family values and solicitous nurturing from her mother’s rich culture. At just 16 years old she began studying the lulling effects of yoga. Now with her very extensive back ground in both traditional art, music and dance, as well as healing arts, she holds a remarkable presence in her field that has touched the lives of many all around the world.

“Early on I was very driven to study visual arts, and subsequently focused on immersing myself into many art forms, not superficially, but very deeply,” says Jennifer. “So even though I have a wide range of skills, all are very cohesively related.”

Some of Jennifer’s remarkable contributions include volunteering to educate inner city teens with HIV/AIDS, teaching them how to create mandala paintings, a testament for her aptitude to harmoniously mix arts with an amazing ability to connect with people.

“Teaching is an ideal way to share my compassion in an extremely organic way,” says Jennifer. “There is a social and spiritual healing element in all art forms.”

Jennifer’s outstanding work is dedicated to bringing out positivity and has also brought her tremendous joy.

“It’s absolutely critical to pay attention to one’s own internal dialogue,” says Jennifer. ”Take time to tap into yourself and consider your hopes and dreams. It is always our authentic internal conversation that ultimately connects us to something greater.”

CUTV news will feature Jennifer Stigliani Bowen in an interview with Jim Masters on Thursday June 21st at 1 p.m. EST.

Le spectacle le plus attendu du MIDEM en France ! Le « Taiwan Beats » a effectué son spectacle à la fin de la soirée.

« Taiwan Beats », spectacle le plus attendu du MIDEM, a effectué son spectacle à la fin de la soirée.

CANNES, FRANCE, June 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Le Marché International du Disque et de l'Edition Musicale (MIDEM) 2018 à Cannes en France a été officiellement inauguré le 5 juin, et les spectacles les plus importants ont également atteint leurs apogés aujourd'hui. Les trois groupes d'artistes représentant Taïwan cette année: Eve Ai, Cosmospeople et DJ Cookie, sont montés le 7 juin pour la première fois sur la scène du Grand Auditorium du Festival de Cannes pour effectuer le spectacle du « Taiwan Beats ». La présentation magnifique de ces trois groupes pleins de différents caractéristiques chacun a été chaudement accueillie et hautement appréciée par le public.

« Le Marché International du Disque et de l'Edition Musicale (MIDEM) 2018 à Cannes en France » a eu lieu du 5 au 8 juin. Le Bureau du développement audiovisuel et de l’industrie musicale du Ministère de la Culture a mis en place le Pavillon de Taïwan avec la participation exécutive de GCA, pour promouvoir les échanges commerciaux et pour participer à des forums professionnels. Il a aussi organisé le « Taiwan Beats » qui est avant tout un grand événement.

Le « Taiwan Beats » s’est ouvert avec le spectacle d’Eve Ai, chanteuse récompensée du prix Golden Melody Award. Un petit problème de contrôle du son s’est produit au début, mais Eve Ai a gardé son calme, et sa présentation stable a reçu un soutien et des encouragements enthousiastes du public. Elle a également intéragi avec le public en anglais courant et partagé son inspiration lors de la création des chansons. Le public a également été convaincu par sa voix lyrique et explosive, on l’a entendue chanter avec une grande joie et on lui a découvert une force incroyable.

Composé de trois grands garçons, le Cosmospeople n'est pas seulement devenu une célébrité populaire à Taiwan ces dernières années, mais il a également attiré l'attention des médias étrangers après son arrivée en France. En mettant l'accent sur la musique funk, le Cosmospeople a un esprit jeune et vif reflétant la nouvelle génération des jeunes taïwanais. Même les spectateurs étrangers qui ne comprennent pas les paroles ont été conquis par le rythme de la musique et se sont précipités sur scène pour les rejoindre. Etant le dernier spectacle, la DJ Cookie a créé une ambiance unique de boîte de nuit à la mode où le public n’a pas pu résister à la tentation de monter sur scène pour s’amuser et danser, ce qui a permis aux contrôleurs de se mobiliser pour les arrêter. Son spectacle s’est poursuit après minuit et a continué à attirer des spectateurs toujours plus nombreux.

La délégation de Taïwan est devenue un partenaire indispensable et important du MIDEM avec la participation continue au cours des dernières années et le « Taiwan Beats » a été aussi un moyen privilégié pour cette exposition. Le rôle indicateur de la musique pop de Taiwan sur le marché chinois a été largement reconnu par l'industrie musicale internationale.

Le « Taiwan Beats » effectuera un autre spectacle à Paris après leur tour à Cannes. Les dernières nouvelles et les spectacle du «Marché International du Disque et de l'Edition Musicale (MIDEM)» seront mis à jour sur la page officielle GCA Entertaiment (facebook.com/gca3nt).

Singer Stephanie Fleming Breaks Barriers for Christian Music

Pop and Christian Singer Stephanie Fleming Breaks Barriers for Christian Music, giving audiences a vocal style and songs that lift the spirit of any faith.

Don't die with your dreams still inside of you! Live your passion. Live your purpose that God put you on this Earth to do.”

— Stephanie Fleming

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA , USA, June 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — She picked up a her first mic at just 4 years old, and was a beautiful girl of just 12 years, when Stephanie Fleming began singing to crowds of hundreds of people. She didn't measure the crowd size at the time. The audience was there to worship. But she had to be good enough, and she was. Her young voice was after all, trained by the best. At 15, she was singing in mega-churches, and training with none other than am Italian Opera maestro. Being 'good enough' was a theme that, unbeknownst to the rising young star, would later come back to her as an adult; to teach her a lesson.

Stephanie always wanted to be on stage. It felt right to her. It was who she was; a singer. The gift of her voice was in tune with her spirit. She was never uncomfortable, no matter how large or massive the audience; and they loved her. They loved her so much, the gifted singer became a paid professional, before she was even old enough to drive a car. Hailing from the Rocky Mountains Region, she trained at many of the best schools including The University of Colorado. Stephanie constantly trained; expanding her range, and perfecting her craft, incorporating the ability of varying genre styles and vocal techniques that would later come to define her sound.

Yet just seven years later, at the tender age of 22, Stephanie got married, and the sweet young Christian woman quickly abandoned what she knew God had called her do. Not only was her spirit crushed, but her dreams slowly died, as she apologized for wanting to reach the talents she had been blessed with. 10 years later, Stephanie's dear sister passed away. It was through this dark night of the soul that served as a wake up call for the young woman who–with a fire in her that was nearly snuffed out–still yet burned. She prayed to find the strength to love herself more; for who she was. The realization came to her then; "Never ask permission to be who God made you to be."

Following in the footsteps of Amy Grant, Stephanie promised to put herself and God first, and never again give up on her dreams and the gift of her talent. She returned to the music world with a force like never before, and was embraced with open arms, joining the cover band Groove 'N Motion, with the Rocky Mountain Horns. Stephanie is also open to collaborating with other talented artists.

Today, the beautiful, full time Pop and Christian singer also teaches meditation and yoga, which aligns perfectly with her faith, and her life philosophy of treating ourselves and others with compassion. Stephanie Fleming states, "I want to touch as many people as I can with my music. I want to help awaken the spirit in them, and remind them not to make the same mistake I almost permanently made. Don't die with your dreams still inside of you! Live your passion. Live your purpose that God put you on this Earth to find, and to share the world with! That's what I'm thankful to now be doing again." She adds, and "never–never ask permission to be who you are!"

Hailing from Manchester Hip hop/Grime Artist Iceburg Drops His latest single 'All is Fair'

You may have heard of the name IceBurga from the Hip Hop grime scene. Hailing from Manchester, this up-coming emcee is direct, straight to the point

CUSTARD FACTORY, MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM, June 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Music Video: https://youtu.be/uz8c7VfuzuE

You may have heard of the name IceBurga from the Hip Hop grime scene. Hailing from Manchester, this up-coming emcee is direct, straight to the point and not afraid to talk the truth about his surroundings and the gritty side of life. To date he’s dropped a few videos out that you can peep on YouTube which are definitely worth checking out.

‘All is fair’ is a song about staying true to oneself at all times. It’s a song about those who are not afraid the go against the status quo and walk that powerful, but lonely path of a maverick, is making the right decisions about where he is, and what goals he wants to achieve in the future.

Talks of the essential need to get paid and look after his family as a number one focus – something many of us can relate to but only few actually have the ability to follow through because they are perhaps afraid of not being popular, not being liked by everyone. Ice talks about the strength and the discipline inside someone who is able to sit back in silence and observe things going on around them, how those people are often accused of being shy or anti-social. In reality, someone not needing being the centre of attention all the time is quite an admirable trait to have and means you can see people around you for what they truly are and make choices about whether they are the type of people you want to associate with or not.

The song is based around a sample loop with a laid-back swagger. My crate-digging brain recognised it was George Benson’s classic mellow 1980’s smash “Lady love me (one more time)” – the perfect groove for such a passionate track.

In his own words, IceBurga describes the inspiration behind the track as “…a human discovering his purpose in life.”

Defiantly an Independent artist, Ice is adamant that he doesn’t want to go the route of the major labels with his own music but would rather control his own artistic direction by himself for himself like so many successful artists are doing nowadays around the world, especially in the U.S. His label is called ‘Burganoise’.

This is a song about hope optimism, determination, discipline and a belief in oneself and I think you’ll agree that this is a message we all need to hear as loud as possible because it’s the only key that unlocks the door to happiness in life…

LE&RN Spokesperson Kathy Bates to lead annual beach event for lymphedema and lymphatic diseases

It is because of the commitment of people like those being honored at this year's California LymphWalk that the movement to fight LE and LD has gained such momentum over the past few years.”

— William Repicci, President & CEO, LE&RN

SANTA MONICA, CA, USA, June 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Oceanfront Walk (2000 Ocean Avenue) in Santa Monica will be a sea of teal on June 24 as lymphedema and lymphatic disease advocates gather for their annual 5K Run/Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases, raising awareness and funding for diseases that affect over 10 million Americans and up to 170 million worldwide. The event will benefit the Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN), a non-profit founded in 1998.

LE&RN thanks National Walk Sponsors Jobst (Premier National Sponsor), Tactile Medical (Presenting Sponsor), Eiger BioPharmaceuticals, Herantis Pharma, ImpediMed/L-Dex, Juzo, Sigvaris, Bio Compression Systems, L&R USA, mediUSA, Lympha Press USA, and LympheDIVAS.

As in prior years, LE&RN Spokesperson Kathy Bates will host a cocktail reception for top fundraisers the evening before the event. At the Run/Walk, Arun Rekha, India Chapter Chair, will accept the LE&RN Patient Advocate Award. Arun has worked tirelessly on behalf of the patient population in India, who often must endure extensive travel to attend clinics on self-care. Dennis Schlaht, of ImpediMed/L-Dex, will receive the LE&RN Advocate Award.

“This year’s LymphWalk in California will recognize two individuals who have made extraordinary impacts on the LE and LD communities,” said William Repicci, LE&RN President and CEO. “Arun Rekha has travelled throughout India, making a difference in the lives of people who often struggle to obtain access to care. Arun has also connected the growing advocacy movement in India to LE&RN’s global efforts. Dennis Schlaht, of ImpediMed/L-Dex, was an early corporate supporter of LE&RN and has regularly attended LE&RN events. His presence has left a lasting impression on Run/Walk participants who so often have felt isolated as they struggle with these diseases. It will be my honor to see these extraordinary individuals receive these well-deserved honors at the 4th annual California LymphWalk. It is because of the commitment of people like them that the movement to fight LE and LD has gained such momentum over the past few years.”
