Folk-Pop Singer-Songwriter Joseph Eid Releases Summer Anthem and Music Video “Listening to Madonna”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2019 / — Just in time for LGBT Pride month, folk-pop artist Joseph Eid creates the perfect summer anthem entitled “Listening to Madonna”. The song pays homage to the pop queen and commends anyone who continues to express themselves just the way they are. The single was accompanied by a bubbly music video and is currently available on all online retail stores.

Eid’s new single is a story of an MTV generation kid journeying through life figuring out who he is meant to be. Despite societal norms and what others think, he realizes it is okay to be different. “Listening to Madonna” travels through decades as it describes the impact the renowned pop singer had on youth. In her music she’d encourage listeners to be themselves and this song reinforces that message.

“Listening to Madonna” is a folky rock-pop track that soars with life. Joseph’s vibrant melodies and clever songwriting conceives an infectious summer hit that will assuredly release heartening and liberating feelings.

Directed and edited by Patrick McPheron, the music video is set in a colorful backyard party in Hollywood, CA. It features local artist and musician friends who came together to support this project. Their contagious energy radiates through the screen and is complimented by their fun party attire. The large gathering is dressed in various hats, wigs, and even features a merman in a hot tub! This lively spirited affair was impressively filmed in (almost) one continuous shot. Chance Artworks filmed the drone coverage, which ends with a beautiful aerial view.

About Joseph Eid:
Joseph has been writing poetry as long as he can remember. He grew up in the suburbs of New York.  Raised in a strict and traditional home, the arts were only supported as a hobby and never as a career.  During his college years, Eid studied psychology and pre-med.  After his first semester at medical school, his dream got too big to hold and Eid made the bold choice of dropping out to move to New York City to pursue music.  

Along his music journey, Joseph has been featured in American Songwriter Magazine's “Best New Music” column and was named as one of Music Connection’s ‘100 Hottest Live Unsigned Artists.’ No Depression called the singer-songwriter’s music journal: “mesmerizing, mind blowing and empowering.” Additionally, Eid has brought his cathartic one-man live show to many of Los Angeles’ premier music venues, including stints at Room 5, El Cid and residencies at The Stone Bar, Crane’s Hollywood Tavern, Room 5, Bar Lubitsch and most recently Bar Mattachine.

The critically acclaimed Green Album, with studio band Zinc, was originally released in 1983 on Capitol Records along with the first CGI MTV video “Turn it Over.”

Theme of Secrets is a groundbreaking electronic music album performed entirely on the Synclavier Music Computer. The 1985 release was featured in TIME magazine.

All tracks have been remastered for this special 3-disc CD and high-fidelity Blu-ray Audio re-release.

Available June 14th in the U.S. (June 21st as an import on Burning Shed and elsewhere in Europe/Japan)

To purchase Eddie Jobson's The Green Album/Theme of Secrets Remastered 3-Disc CD & High-Fidelity Blu-ray Audio:


Classical prodigy and teen star — Award-winning film composer — “A musical genius” (Editor-in-chief of Emmy magazine) — Inductee in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame — World music and jazz record producer — Lecturer on The Art & Science of Music — Electronic music innovator — Electric-violin virtuoso — Award-winning pianist

With an international reputation as the definitive musicians' musician, British musician Eddie Jobson has been recognized as a musical genius since childhood. As a piano and violin prodigy, he was awarded a Diploma of Distinction by London's Royal Academy of Music at the age of 8, performing with his first professional orchestra at age 10. In 1971, at age 16, he was appointed as the Young Persons' Representative to the British Government's Arts Council and, the same year, performed his debut concert at the University of Newcastle—one of the first live concerts to feature the electronic music synthesizer. By age 17 he had acquired a worldwide record deal with Warner Bros. to record his first full album, playing violin, synthesizer and piano.

Transitioning away from classical music and still only 17, he became orchestrator for British singer Bryan Ferry, leading to Jobson becoming a full member of the influential art-rock group Roxy Music, contributing to their first number-one album as synthesist and groundbreaking electric-violinist. Eddie's proficiency in re-sculpting and professionalizing the Roxy sound played a major role in the band's success and their considerable influence on the likes of U2, The Talking Heads and many of the '80s new wave rock/pop groups. Jobson's early pioneering work as a teen, along with the other Roxy members, has resulted in his 2019 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, making Jobson the first rock violinist to be so honored.

Remaining in the rock and jazz world after Roxy, Eddie—still only 21—was “discovered” by American music icon Frank Zappa and flown to Los Angeles to replace both jazz greats George Duke on keyboards and Jean-Luc Ponty on violin, in Zappa's only four-piece lineup. Returning to England in 1978 after several albums and world concert tours with Zappa, Jobson then formed the internationally acclaimed progressive-fusion band UK with jazz-guitar legend Allan Holdsworth, King Crimson vocalist John Wetton, and original Yes drummer Bill Bruford. The UK albums, along with his other work with King Crimson, Yes, Jethro Tull and with members of Deep Purple and The Who, established Jobson not only as, arguably, the top rock violinist in the world, but also as one of the top keyboardists.

In the 1980s, Eddie put rock music and concert touring aside and focused on electronic music and the innovative world of computer music. He created the first music video to feature CGI, as well as the world's first album performed entirely on the Synclavier Music Computer. Featured in TIME magazine, this critically acclaimed album was one of the very first all-digital CD releases. The 1990s saw Jobson move into the world of television and film scoring—an award-winning side career that culminated in him becoming choral director for Disney on two major movies and the soundtrack composer on numerous films, TV shows and 3D theme-park experiences. Fascinated with all musical forms, he left the world of Hollywood in 2000 and formed a musicians' label called Globe Music as a vehicle for producing a diverse array of jazz and world-music artists. This period also saw Eddie working with the Tuvan throat singers, and composing for and conducting both the City of Prague Philharmonic and The Bulgarian Women's Choir, while also functioning as the choir's spokesperson at Harvard University and on multiple classical radio broadcasts.

An unexpected return to the concert stage in 2008, saw Jobson perform to a festival audience of more than 150,000 people in Kazan, Russia, leading to ten more years of world tours until his permanent retirement from live concerts in 2018. In 2017, Jobson received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Progressive Music Awards in London.

Five new double-CD releases are being planned to commemorate Jobson's almost fifty years as one of the world's most respected musicians. Eddie is also currently producing six video lectures on The Art and Science of Music.

Mute Davinci Defines Breaking News

Mute Davinci new music out now trending on youtube family Mute Davinci x Matt movin

Patrick Nelson aka Mute Davinci

Patrick Nelson, also known by his stage name "Mute Davinci" delivers hit after hit. The Chattanooga artist releases his EP and 3 other singles within a month.

I know it seems hard sometimes but remember one thing. Through every dark night, there’s a bright day after that. So no matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep ya head up, and handle it.”

— Tupac

CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 14, 2019 / — Mute Davinci Breaks all of the Rules to Define “Breaking News”

Chattanooga Tennessee, United States: Round Table Affiliation is proud to announce another new artist, Patrick Nelson, also known as “Mute Davinci”. Mute Davinci is a rapper, singer, songwriter, and overall artist in every sense of the word. He has performed on stage once, as a hype man for the artist Matt Movin’. With a sound like this, I trust that you wouldn’t believe that statement even for a second. With a number of popular songs such as “Nobody,” “Updated:,” and the new viral sensation “Family” this kid seems like he is off to an outstanding start.

Over the past 8 years, he’s worked on multiple groundbreaking songs, even writing for some of the best, I do have to add that he said those names were “confidential due to a business agreement.” He recently released the hit EP “Breaking News,” the singles “Updated:” Too Long,” and last but most definitely not least the viral hit “Family” with a feature from Matt Movin’ on that track specifically. All of these songs except for “Family” which will be exclusively on YouTube until the 18th of June are available on every major streaming platform. Platforms such as Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Kkbox, Amazon, Google, YouTube, plus about 150 more platforms on top of those.

What makes Mute Davinci as well as everyone at The Round Table Affiliation different is the superior lyrical delivery that catches the attention of any listener from the get-go. The mentality of Mute specifically shows in his music, he makes statements on the real day to day aspects of street life as well as what it’s like to come back from that. The raw, un-cut, facts of what it’s like for your head.

To listen to his songs or learn more about him, please visit
Or his blog at /

Mute Davinci is consistently growing into the artist he is truly meant to encapsulate; an artist that could influence millions with his work. An artist who, within his first month, influenced over 50,000. When you’re listening to Mute the music can definitely ease your mind yet bring out a side of you that most don’t want to regularly face. In saying that, he also has the party hard summer tracks that we all needed.

Mute was asked what message he wanted to deliver in his music career. He responded to that question with “I do not care about the money, it is nice though, what I really care about is helping even one person cope with the things we have to cope with in this let us just say off the wall generation.” He doesn’t just want to entertain the audience, whomever that may be. He wants to help. He wants to help people deal with things such as depression, separation anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and the list goes on and on all the way to a dissociative personality, which he personally suffers from on a daily basis.

I guess you could say the unorthodox approach has earned him praise from a lot of respectable people in the current “rap game.” Again, when asked who he said: “As I said, some things are meant to be kept in the classifieds.”
His work has been recognized on all social media platforms, which include but are not limited to Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and multiple streaming sites. His main platform, Instagram had 153 followers 8 months ago. He now has over 70 thousand. Long story short, this is a person to look out for.

Piano Man Jack Spann To Release Third Album "Propaganda Man" – July 26th

Jack Spann - Propaganda Man Cover

Jack Spann – Propaganda Man

Jack Spann

Jack Spann

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 13, 2019 / — Jack Spann has had an incredible couple of years. The Saint Louis native has lived in New York City for the last 18 years and established himself as one of the city's in-demand keyboardists. His reputation led to an introduction to David Bowie's producer, Tony Visconti who hired him to play on the demos for what would be Bowie's final album, Blackstar.

Spann's Visconti connection did not end there. It led to an introduction to Milwaukee-based producer, Gary Tanin, who worked with Spann on his 1st and 2nd solo records, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, and Beautiful Man From Mars and now on his 3rd upcoming release Propaganda Man.

The album took two years to complete and is different from his last, in that it faces social issues head on and does not shy away from addressing thorny social conundrums. Several guests appear while Spann provides lead vocals, piano, keyboards, guitar and bass. Cecil Robbington provides drums and percussion along with producer Gary Tanin adding additional keyboards.

Spann confesses he has drawn on the inspiration of having worked with David Bowie on the Blackstar demos. The 12-song record kicks off with the title track “Propaganda Man”, “… [which] is vintage Jack Spann. He sings of 'crunching numbers' and 'equations . . . while the world waits, breathless' … the politics of spinning information.” “'Rage in the Garden' – Just enough Jersey Sound flair to qualify as a tune that Little Steven should cover with his Disciples of Soul.” “'Her Majesty' – echoed the Abbey Road vintage of the Fab Four – It is hard to sound like Ringo but they pull it off on this track – one of many elements that give the track this Beatles fan's stamp of approval….” “'She's My Love Line' does sound like a Billy Joel tune recorded in Detroit with Ray Charles at the keys for good measure.” – Ken E. Raisanen – From The Vaults – WOAS-FM 88.5.

Propaganda Man will release July 26th, 2019 in CD and Digital formats through Big Boo Publishing.

I don't really do anything small, do I?! I have placed my piano on a couple of different beaches, as well as a rainforest…why not a piano on fire in the middle of a desert?”

— Jennifer Thomas

The tour — named after her most recent Billboard-charting album The Fire Within — ignites in Washington’s Tri-Cities on June 19, and burns on through Spokane, Idaho, Salt Lake City, Denver, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Las Vegas, California, Oregon, and back to Washington state to culminate with a PREMIERE VIP concert and event in Seattle on August 24; complete details of the schedule, and ticket information, are available at

“NO YAMAHA PIANOS WERE HURT DURING THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO!” Thomas reassures fans beneath “The Fire Within” music video on her YouTube page, stacked with her stunning videos, each more beautiful than the last. “The piano that was burned was (already) terribly damaged and had seen its day. A lot of people asked me if I was going to turn it into a table piece, or a garden ornament, but I said, ‘No, I think I'm going to set it on fire.’ I don't really do anything small, do I?! I have placed my piano on a couple of different beaches, as well as a rainforest…why not a piano on fire in the middle of a desert?”

Delivering the drama that her fans crave, “The Fire Within” video features Thomas and The Rogue Pianist in a dueling piano duet, alternating locations between the desert wilderness and the concert hall, culminating with a piano in flames as Thomas looks on. Widely considered by her peers as one of the most remarkable young Classical composers and multi-instrumentalists of our time, Thomas is beloved for her creative collaborations, as well as her sophisticated cover songs (“Believer” by Imagine Dragons is on The Fire Within) and her soaring original compositions reminiscent of Hans Zimmer’s cinematic works.

In recent years, Thomas has landed among the Top 1% of all artists on Pandora music, garnering between 1 to 1.4 Million streams per week. With her popularity translating to the charts, The Fire Within released in October 2018, debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard Classical Album chart and also at No. 2 on the Classical Crossover chart, an impressive feat, especially for an independent artist. The Fire Within is Thomas’ sixth album, and was recorded with the English Session Orchestra in London at Abbey Road Studios, with additional sessions at Yamaha in Nashville and Opus 4 Studios near Seattle.

From the release of her debut album, Key of Sea (2007) to The Fire Within (2018), Thomas’ dedication to excellence has been applauded by fans, filmmakers and peers such as her mixing engineer Brian Vibberts, a 6-time GRAMMY® Award winner, and GRAMMY®-nominated producer/engineer Paul Speer. Her collaborations, songs, albums, film scores and videos have won more than 20 awards, including “Best Holiday Album” (2016 Hollywood Music in Media Awards) and “Best Classical/Opera” song (2017 Peace Song Awards), and an Audience Choice Award in the 2008 Swan Lake Moving Image and Music Awards in Germany. Thomas composed her first original film score for “Minuet” by director/writer Ryan K. McNeal, winning the Gold Medal of Excellence at the 2011 Park City Film Music Festival for “Best Original Music in a Short Film,” and receiving a nomination for Classical/Orchestral “Best Song” in the 2011 Hollywood Music in Media Awards for Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue (D Minor).”

Thomas said that she and her label planned the tour schedule around cities where her streaming data shows she has the largest online audience. The venues vary in size, and families of all ages are encouraged to attend the concerts, which draw upon by her own experience as a child musician.

“I think that all children should, and need, to be exposed to music education,” she shares. “It awakens their minds in ways that other things cannot. I was brought up by a Mother who was incredibly talented and dedicated to teaching my siblings and I music…I participated in competitions, recitals and adjudications. But passion cannot be forced or taught. I found my passion in music when I was 12-years old after watching an old classic movie that really inspired me and propelled me forward in my own music practice.”

And, although Thomas said she doesn’t do anything small, that’s not completely true…when not composing or recording, she loves getting down and playing Legos with her three young sons.
