— Dylan Hamar

MERIDIAN, ID, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Idaho-based health company Microbe Formulas is being featured in Planet TV’s new docu-series, “New Frontiers,” hosted by William Shatner. The episode highlighting the innovations of this out-of-the-box wellness company will be airing this Saturday, October 23rd from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm EST, on Fox Business Channel.

The New Frontier series is designed to explore cutting-edge healthcare organizations that are shaping the future of health management in our nation, like Microbe Formulas.

Microbe Formulas, established in 2017, has set out to restore hope and health around the globe through producing all-natural health products, educational media, and guided wellness programs.

Dr. Jay Davidson, co-founder of Microbe Formulas, shares, “The uniqueness of our company lies in our focus on foundational health first. In modern medicine, the focus is on treating each symptom, while, in our world, we focus on taking care of root causes, facilitating healthy processes throughout the entire system. This supports our customers in feeling better overall and having sustainable wellness.”

The company began with two doctors who wanted to provide effective, natural solutions for gut health and detoxification. Dr. Jay Davidson and Dr. Todd Watts, co-founders of Microbe Formulas, were drawn together through the commonality of personal unresolved health issues. This ultimately motivated them to dive into holistic medicine to find “solutions that work.” Over time, the two doctors discovered the importance of drainage, gut health, and natural detox support.

Microbe has multiple innovative health products to offer, as well as a 4-month protocol program. In particular, two areas make them stand out: one, their flagship gut product Mimosa Pudica Seed, and two, their proprietary BioActive Carbon technology within the majority of their all-natural products. Microbe’s episode of “New Frontiers’’ will go into more detail on these special natural remedies and their benefits, along with sharing stories of hope and health.

The documentary episodes will first air on national television on Fox Business Channel, reaching 71 million viewers. It will also be available on-demand through Amazon Prime Video, Bloomberg TV, Google Play, iTunes, Roku, and many other platforms.

Dylan Hamar, Microbe Formulas Media Manager, led video editing and production for the Microbe segment. Hamar adds, “As someone who has always aspired to be in the space of media, being a part of this series is a huge deal for me. I feel incredibly blessed to have a hand in sharing our message with the world.”

About Microbe Formulas: Microbe Formulas is a wellness company that believes a “healthy microbiome is a healthy you.” This starts with opening drainage pathways, supporting energy at the mitochondrial level, and detoxing unwanted substances. Their core values are front and center in the company mission: “Creating solutions that work is what we do. Restoring hope and health is who we are.”

Excalibur V

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Move, Cry, Act, Clash! is the fifth part of French musician and producer Alan Simon’s legendary Celtic rock opera series Excalibur.

Featuring Alan Simon, John Wetton, Steve Hackett, Bernie Shaw, Jerry Goodman, Martin Barre, Jeremy Spencer, Michael Sadler, Roberto Tiranti, John Helliwell, Jesse Siebenberg, Shira Golan and Miriam Toukan.

Move, Cry, Act, Clash! concludes its 12 tracks with “The Vision” featuring the legendary John Wetton (King Crimson/Asia) in a beautiful tribute to the friendship and respect between these two musical giants.

Alan Simon is a Breton songwriter and director. Author of modern operas, his works are performed in various national theaters (Russia, Germany, France …). More than 300,000 spectators came to applaud Excalibur or Tristan & Yseult. Alan has obtained several gold and platinum records and his creations have received several awards. In the USA, Alan won the Grammy for best producer in 2008 and for best song, “Circle of Life,” performed by Jon Anderson of Yes. His album Big Bang (2018) is the soundtrack of the City of Space in Toulouse (an educational park about the conquest of space). After the film O Gengis in 2005 (with Omar Sharif and Jean Reno), he has just finished Monsieur Constant, his second film for the cinema, which is in production during 2021. Today Alan wants to go on tour around the world with his extraordinary musical round table where many legends of folk and rock meet.

“‘Excalibur’ brought me a lot of happiness because by creating this musical round table, I had the great chance to collaborate with incredible rock and folk legends, pillars of mythical groups: Yes, Supertramp, Fleetwood Mac, King Crimson, The Moody Blues, Alan Parson, Asia, Barclay James Harvest, Genesis, Fairport Convention, Runrig, Jethro Tull, Saga, Uriah Heep… Since its creation 20 years ago ‘Excalibur’ has represented 5 studio and 3 live albums including 120 original tracks. Offering a new album is not trivial. You have to give everything. So I made this opus V by investing myself 100% with an ‘old-fashioned’ production. No home studio but the joy of living in a large studio (Drums code studios in Italy) with great soloists and a fantastic symphony. Then I contacted magical interpreters that I like. What a joy to hear the guitars of the legendary pillars of Genesis and Jethro Tull: Steve Hackett and Martin Barre or the voices of Supertramp from Saga and Uriah Heep: Jesse Siebenberg, Michael Sadler and Bernie Shaw without forgetting this incredible talented singer Roberto Tiranti. We spent 6 months in a mixing studio with an average of 100 tracks per title. I hope that this more rock album than the previous ones will sign a real return on stage of this universal legend, ‘ever green’ say the English. Thank you to all those who supported ‘Excalibur.’ After 300 000 spectators in 4 tours, I hope that this musical round table finally finds its audience under the aegis of sharing. These 12 new songs underline the urgency to get moving for our planet. More than ever our destiny is in our hands. And everything is good to take. The concept of Excalibur and its musical knights must contribute to this new start. Artists can (and must) get involved more than ever.” – Alan Simon

We are equally pleased that so many of our long-term dealers weathered the storm and have come through the challenges of the past year and a half with renewed focus, energy and positivity.

Local fan brings BlueGrass music back to Hopewell VA

Blue Grass fans at Saucy’s

Bluegrass music has come back to Hopewell, Virginia. Mark your calendars for November 6 and December 4, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Saucy’s Barbecue in Hopewell.

Because of Covid, there was no music here, nowhere to have a meal and listen to music and have fellowship”

— Julie Childrey

HOPEWELL, VA, USA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Julie Childrey has brought Bluegrass music back to Hopewell, Virginia.

“Because of Covid, there was no music here, nowhere to have a meal and listen to music and have fellowship,” said Childrey. A long-time Bluegrass fan, she set out to create a Bluegrass festival in Hopewell.

Childrey has worked on this project as a volunteer for three years. She went to the Hopewell/Prince George Chamber for help and Chamber President Becky McDonough applied for a grant to fund a series of outdoor concerts. They approached local restauranteur Tom McCormack to host the concerts at his barbecue restaurant, Saucy’s. And the music was back.

“My goal was to get 100 people to show up,” said Childrey. “The count was 101!”

Area Bluegrass bands played on Saucy’s front lawn in October, November and December 2020 and started up again in June 2021 with six concerts. Two final concerts for 2021 will be on November 6 and December 4, 4 to 6 p.m. with an open jam from 6 to 8 p.m.

A traveling five-man group, The Rappahannock Crossing Bluegrass Band recently played at Saucy’s for an audience of family and friends, ranging in age from toddlers to grandparents. The Rappahannocks played from 4 to 6 p.m. and then there was an open jam for other Bluegrass wannabees, some experienced musicians and others just learning.

“That’s the way the music grows,” said Childrey.

Meanwhile McCormack and his crew served up craft beer along with traditional barbecue, brisket, ribs and the ‘South’s Best Butt,” according to Southern Living Magazine, as well as their special mashed sweet potato Q balls and vegetarian entrees such as tofu tacos and black beans and kale.

About Julie Childrey:
A native of rural Central Virginia, Julie Childrey became a lover of Bluegrass music from an early age, listening to the Grand Ole Opry on the radio with her parents, then attending bluegrass festivals in Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and Kentucky. In the early 1980s she was the Virginia Representative for the Bill Monroe Fan Club. Monroe is known as the Father of Bluegrass Music. She continues to attend bluegrass festivals, is a member of the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America and attends the annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee. Childrey is happy to see local bluegrass bands have a chance to play for family and friends who get to enjoy it in a unique space at Saucy's BBQ in Hopewell, where everyone is welcome.

About Saucy’s:
Tom McCormack opened his first Saucy’s restaurant in 2018. This original Saucy’s is housed in a replica shipping container which McCormick built at 257 East Bank Street, Petersburg, Virginia. Opened in 2010, the Hopewell restaurant at 207 East City Point Road is housed in a 300-square-foot industrial building with open rafters and an orange bar front made to look like a cargo container.

McCormack said Saucy’s made it through the Covid pandemic by building an online ordering system and opening a drive-through window. “We may add more interior winter shows and possibly go year-round,” he said.

About Hopewell, Virginia:
Hopewell is a quaint city of 23,000 about 20 miles south or Virginia’s capital at Richmond. Located at the confluence of the James and Appomattox Rivers, Hopewell offers boating, water sports and other outdoor activities as well as a new River Walk.

HIP Video Promo: WHYYOUNGN takes us to the subway in "D A R L E N E" video premiering on The Hype Magazine

Brooklyn rapper WHYYOUNGN shoots most of "D A R L E N E" in a subway station, and he's done that to make sure you know: he's a representative of the city.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE HYPE MAGAZINE: Premiere: WHYYOUNGN “D A R L E N E”

Few things are things as quintessentially New York as hardcore lyrical hip-hop. The MTA might be one of them. The New York subway has a distinct look and feel: one shot of those tiled pillars and that distinctive iconography, and you'll know exactly what you're looking at. Brooklyn rapper WHYYOUNGN shoots most of the video for "D A R L E N E" in a subway station, and he's done that for a reason. He's aligning himself with the city at its most elemental — its sinews, veins, and fundamental rhythms. He's a representative of the city, and he's making sure you know.

He's also vigorously waving the flag for his borough. In "D A R L E N E," he shouts out the Grand Army Plaza: a transportation nexus, the beating heart of Brooklyn, and the buckle that cinches the rougher neighborhoods south of Prospect Park to the wealthier enclaves to the north. WHYYOUNGN straddles all of those divides, and every time he rhymes, he reminds listeners of the fundamental unity of New York hip-hop and the long and storied tradition of the genre. "D A R L E N E" is a minute and forty seconds of tight, relentless, irresistible rhyme, matched to a spare but hard-hitting beat. Like a subway train, it rumbles by with force, authority, and no small amount of menace — and it's gone before you know it, so catch it if you can.

"D A R L E N E" comes right on the heels of the incendiary "Hip-Hop Booty," a summer single that earned WHYYOUNGN plenty of airplay on BET Jams, respect from his peers and the music press, and the deep appreciation of a New York rap audience that demands the best from emcees. The "Hip-Hop Booty" video caught WHYYOUNGN in action on the pavement outside the Barclays Center, comfortable and commanding, looking as much a part of the streetscape as the bodegas and traffic lights. For the new clip, he's descended into the tunnels beneath the Grand Army Plaza, and he's rapping under the fluorescent lights of one of Brooklyn's most storied stations. He gives us the silver turnstiles, the black iron grates, the wooden seats, the MetroCard booths, the wall art, and the transit police hovering on the streets above the station. In one memorable shot, he stands in front of the subway map as if he's part of it – as if he's a piece of the city's geography and history. And as a living link to the ongoing story of hip-hop in New York, that's exactly what he is.

HIP Video Promo presents: Summer Rain wants you to fall in love with "Let Me Tell You" video on XS Noize

"Let Me Tell You" is a warm embrace of the urgency of now and being in the moment, even if what lies ahead is unclear.

NANAIMO, BC, CANADA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — XS NOIZE VIDEO PREMIERE: Summer Rain – Let Me Tell You

They say that where you're from shapes who you are. Hailing from Qualicum Beach in Vancouver Island, where the average population for the town is 65 years old, Summer Rain has been endlessly inspired by old-school music while maintaining a youthful and relatable discography. Bandmates Will McLelland (guitar, vocals), Josh Beausoleil (bass, vocals), and Logan Hale (drums) have managed to capture the attention of millions with their hits like "South of the Border" and "Hold Her Hand," both an eclectic mix of folk and indie rock. Every song is a beautiful collaboration between each member's strengths, from sweet vocals to groovy guitar and drums. Summer Rain teaches us to not to take ourselves too seriously.

Falling in love is a whirlwind of fleeting euphoria and feelings of invincibility. It can have you wanting to shout it from the rooftops. "Let Me Tell You" is a warm embrace of the urgency of now and being in the moment, even if what lies ahead is unclear. With heartfelt guitar strums and a steady drumbeat, Will Mclelland's voice melts into the timeless instrumentals.

The video portrays a dream-like state where everything is random and nothing seems to make sense, which serves as a metaphor for the uncertainty and confusion of modern relationships. As the guitar plucks pick up the rhythm, Will faces the woman he adores, and they drown into each other's arms in a hug. At the end of it all, the random confusion subsides and the couple are left to face the world together. Rediscover the joys of youthfulness and the complicated, fuzzy feeling of romance in "Let Me Tell You."

By the end of the book, readers will not only be able to create multiple label revenue streams to create an established record label but also will be able to build their music business effortlessly, learning how to professionally market their music/artists, allowing them to reach thousands of fans.

Interested readers can purchase the book online and access additional resources at the website linked here: https://velocitypress.uk/product/label-machine-book/

Pour redécouvrir "l'Aristocrate de la Mélodie". Francis Lai Story… au Grand Rex, Paris Francis Lai, au Grand Rex, Paris

PARIS, FRANCE, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Editions 23, en accord avec Dagmar, Frédéric, Olivier, Laura Lai & Thierry Wolf de FGL Productions, présentent « Francis Lai Story » le 5 novembre 2021, au Grand Rex – Paris.

Les Éditions 23 sont fières d'annoncer une soirée exceptionnel pour redécouvrir les plus grands chefs-d'œuvre du compositeur d'Un Homme et une Femme : Francis Lai Story.

Surnommé par les Américains « l'aristocrate de la mélodie », Francis Lai a joué avec Edith Piaf et Mireille Mathieu, avant de devenir le compositeur officiel de Claude Lelouch et de travailler avec de grands réalisateurs comme Terence Young, Henri Verneuil et Dino Risi. Impossible de compter le nombre d'artistes célèbres qui ont interprété ses compositions au fil des ans : Elton John, Petula Clark, Johnny Hallyday, Serge Reggiani, Charles Aznavour, Yves Montand, Nana Mouskouri, Françoise Hardy, pour n'en citer que quelques-uns. Il a reçu de nombreux prix, remportant l'Oscar de la meilleure bande originale pour "Love Story" ainsi qu’un Golden Globe et de très nombreuses récompenses.

Ce concert exceptionnel, interprété par le Francis Lai Orchestra, invite le public à découvrir l'univers de Francis Lai, qui a composé pour plus d'une centaine de films et plus de 600 chansons. L'ambassadeur du romantisme français qui, malgré un palmarès impressionnant de distinctions et récompenses, est toujours resté humble, même s’il détient toujours le record d'albums vendus à l'étranger pour un compositeur français avec notamment Love Story, Itinéraire d'un Enfant Gâté, Un Homme et Une Femme, Bilitis, Les Etoiles du Cinéma, Les Uns & Les autres.

Francis Lai Story, un spectacle unique avec des invités de surprise à ne pas manquer.

À propos de Francis Lai

Francis Lai est né le 26 avril 1932 à Nice. Très tôt, passionné de musique, il crée ses premières gammes dans un orchestre local. A Marseille, il entend d'abord le jazz et rencontre Claude Goaty, chanteur populaire des années 50, qu'il suivra à Paris pour découvrir Montmartre, où il s'installe. Ici, dans ce lieu fourmillant d'idées et de mouvements artistiques divers, il rencontre les hommes et les femmes avec lesquels il développera son travail.
Francis Lai a écrit la musique de plus de 100 films et composé les mélodies de plus de 600 chansons. La plupart des stars des années 60,70 et 80 (Elton John, Tom John, DElla Fitzgerald, etc) ont pu chanter ses chansons et les plus grands orchestres internationaux ont enregistré ses musiques. À ce jour, il reste l'un des compositeurs les plus joué sur la planète. Homme discret, timide et très humble, Francis Lai n'en reste pas moins le compositeur français de musiques de films qui a vendu le plus grand nombre de disques à travers le monde. À titre d'exemples : Un Homme et une Femme 5.000.000 exemplaires, Vivre pour Vivre 2.000.000 exemplaires, Love Story 6.000.000 disques vendus, Emmanuelle II 1.000.000 exemplaires, Les Uns et les Autres 2.000.000 et Bilitis avec 7 millions de disques vendus !

Son travail est reconnu dans le monde entier, et en 1970, il reçoit le prix le plus prestigieux : un Oscar à Hollywood pour la musique du film « Love Story ». Marié au mannequin Dagmar Puetz, il est père de trois enfants (Frédéric, Olivier, Laura). Francis Lai a également été l'un des pionniers dans la recherche de sons synthétiques et dans l'utilisation de l'informatique musicale. Ces œuvres sont aujourd'hui samplées par des groupes de rap américain, de pop britannique et de techno européenne, dont il est l'une des influences les plus fiables.

TRISTAR Music Video Stereo Dive Foundation


There are many times when people have to make choices and decisions, but at such times TRISTAR became something that can be close to you as someone who gently pushes your back.”

— R・O・N (Stereo Dive Foundation)

LOS ANGELES, CA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Japan's top charting producer and singer-songwriter R・O・N’s project STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION has revealed its music video for its newest single “TRISTAR” today on October 20th. The single "TRISTAR" had recently been pre-released on all music streaming platforms before the actual CD press version that is scheduled to be released on November 24, 2021. The new electro-pop song is full of new challenges for STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION. As the chorus melody repeats, "Do what I want and do what I need", stimulates the earworms, it draws the charm of the lyrics and the track itself like no other songs he has created. What’s more to pay attention to is the strong melody and arrangement ideas. As the solid beats strongly supports the core roots, with shining synths and the gentle enveloping vocals are intertwined, just listening to the song makes you feel cozy as your heart bounces in the flow. STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION’s unique sound-making technique of treating his vocals as an instrument constructs the song not only as just pop but stylish.

“TRISTAR” is also sung in full English for the first time on a single for all his fans on the globe to enjoy. The English lyrics speak of his determination and positive feelings. R・O・N says, ”There are many times when people have to make choices and decisions, but at such times it became something that can be close to you as someone who gently pushes your back.”

“TRISTAR” has also been chosen as the ending theme song for the anime series “Muv-Luv Alternative” where the story is about humans who wage a long battle against the extraterrestrial species BETA, with humanoid weapons known as Tactical Surface Fighters.
