"So Much Joy" – A Beautiful Romantic Ballad by Jazz Vocalist Ellen Cooper

Ellen Cooper

Pump It Up Magazine June/July Edition!

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is nothing sweeter than an artist and a debut song that's time has come. Now, after years of building fervent followings in the U.S., Asia, the U.K. and other exotic spaces abroad, seasoned singer/songwriter Ellen Cooper is marking her studio recording launch with her delicious debut "So Much Joy" via The Sound of Los Angeles Records (in stores June 7th).

Very much in the tradition of artists such as Anita Baker, Randy Crawford and Angela Bofill, Ellen Cooper is in possession of an expressive alto vocal instrument that can caress a song and chase the clouds away as it brings hearts closer together. Effortlessly and naturally rapturous, Cooper's performance on this beautifully produced piano ballad (featuring Gail Jhonson massaging the ivories) spiced with tasty saxophone ad libs will certainly find homes at adults-targeted radio formats, lite jazz and even some of the more daring AC stations. The song and her vocal are just that winning and convincing.

Produced by '70s-era Motown songwriter/arranger Michael B. Sutton (Smokey Robinson), "So Much Joy" is destined to be a multi-format crossover sensation from a lady who – at long last – is bringing the fully ripened fruit of her artistry to the forefront. Ellen Cooper has not been idle. She has worked in many industries and successfully started two businesses with her husband…the man to whom she also dedicates the sentiment behind "So Much Joy." All the while, Ellen has guardedly nurtured her sacred loves for singing and writing songs that a growing number of fans have enjoyed in coveted as-the-occasion-strikes-her concerts.

Taking her time, Cooper is now about to bring an album of spiritually conscious, politically-empowered and all around personally inspired original compositions, dotted with a couple of choice classic covers that will officially introduce a compelling and sophisticated new female counterpoint voice to the likes of Gregory Porter and the late, great Al Jarreau.

"So Much Joy" by Ellen Cooper is not merely a new song, it's the way said song will make you feel.

La'Vega's New Mixtape "For The Love" Shows That She's Bigger Than Rap

The Bronx female MC makes a statement right out the gate on her first mixtape of 2019 "For The Love". The title alone says it all; she makes music for the love.

Her love for making music is evident on every single song on the mixtape, and she shines on her hooks…”

— David Ritchen

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first track on the Mixtape "For The Love" is "Ready or Not", a proper track that propels the Bronx, New York, female MC back into the musical space that she left in 2016. The track clearly lets her listeners and doubters know, that ready or not, she is 'back in her bag' and she's coming back to finish what her and her team (MVB RECORDS) started in the beginning of her professional music career.

"Stay Neckin'" is the second track on the mixtape, and on this track; and throughout the mixtape, La'Vega embraces her Hispanic (Dominican) heritage by sprinkling a little Spanish in her lyrics. On this same track La'Vega makes it clear that she did not forget the haters; past and present, who dismiss her aspirations but are still watching her every move now that she is back in the music industry. Nothing makes the previous statement more true than the lyrics, "well my value is going up, hit you n*ggas with the swerve, cause when y'all was dishing out I plotted back what y'all deserve". Those lyrics clearly show that La'Vega is playing chess while everyone else around her is playing checkers. The listeners of "For The Love" will find many instances of La'Vega going down her Hit list of people who crossed her in the past, and If you listen to the lyrics throughout the mixtape it is clear that she addresses everything and everyone that needs to be addressed, all while getting back into her zone and reminding us that her pen and hook game is bonkers.

The highlights of the mixtape are the last four tracks; 3. No Bay-Bee, 4. Get It Poppin', 5. Bigger The Bag, and 6. Like a Boss (Boss Lil Man). The standout track on the mixtape has to be "No Bay-Bee". "No Bay-Bee" shows off La'Vega's melody making skills and her unmatched ability to write killer hooks. The hook on "No Bay-Bee" is so infectious that it is sure to have it's listeners throwing up their middle fingers to every hater in their lives. It is rumored that "No Bay-Bee" is supposed to be remixed with a featured artist, but no official word has been released to confirm it.

"For The Love" is the perfect title for La'Vega's first mixtape of 2019, and also because its her first mixtape in three years. Her love for making music is evident on every single song on the mixtape, and she shines on her hooks and and creates catchy melodies that will keep her fans singing. Her website www.MissLavega.com will launch this month (June), and will feature exclusive content, and new pictures from her first photo shoot of 2019, which is also scheduled in June. Listeners and fans can stream La'Vega's new and past releases on Apple Music, Spotify, and all other popular music stores.

DR CHRISPY, Renowned Australian Space Scientist and Music Producer to Release New Single “VOYAGER AT THE HELIOPAUSE”

Dr Chrispy - "Voyager at the Heliopause" Cover

Dr Chrispy – “Voyager at the Heliopause”

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, June 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — DR CHRISPY (aka Dr. Chris Boshuizen) is an award-winning aeronautical engineer, music producer, and songwriter who has spent the last 16 years tragically torn between two loves: Music and Space Exploration. His new single “VOYAGER AT THE HELIOPAUSE” will release online everywhere music is streamed and sold on June 14, 2019. The single is a tribute to the NASA Voyager spacecraft that launched in 1977 and returns stunning images from our solar system that inspired Chris to pursue his passion for space. Accompanied by a music video featuring historically accurate animated recreations of those classic images, “VOYAGER AT THE HELIOPAUSE” is a soothing and ambient electro space jazz track.

DR CHRISPY runs his home studio in San Francisco where he is actively writing and recording new music. DR CHRISPY’s first full-length album VHS released in 2018 and was widely praised by national and international reviewers. A collection of mostly instrumental tracks, Chris began writing VHS in 2003 while traveling as an aerospace engineer. The tracks were written all around the world and capture the vibe of each place and moment in time. Exclusive Magazine calls VHS, “a wonderfully ambient, bouncy, fun, even thoughtful at times collection of instrumental tracks,” while BabySue.com says, “Whether you're out clubbing or at home trying to get things done, these nifty little rhythmic creations will likely be just what the doctor ordered to get things going.” VHS plays like an auditory travel diary, inviting you along to hear and experience the evolution from Dr. Chris Boshuizen, Space Scientist, to DR CHRISPY, the Artist.

Having worked at NASA for almost five years inventing new kinds of spacecraft, Chris went on to cofound the company Planet Labs, which launched and monitors over 200 spacecraft that create a daily map of the global environment. During all this, Chris spent nearly every spare moment writing music on the one instrument he always had with him: his laptop. Much of his music was written at airports or on planes, and over a 16-year period he has amassed an impressive catalog of material with over 300 tracks. Wanting to get some of his music out to the world, Chris decided to pursue his art full-time, adopting the nickname “Chrispy” that was given to him by his NASA co-workers. Unlike other notable “doctors” in the music industry, DR CHRISPY has a PhD in Physics, and in 2014 he won the Advance Global Award for being the Greatest Australian Not Living in Australia.

Chris bought his own computer in 1998, but using it for homework was an afterthought. Instead he built an audio workstation complete with an 8-channel studio sound card and mixing desk and set out to learn studio engineering and mixing. He also took up frequent guitar lessons, but over time his music workstation was replaced with a laptop, and as his space career took off, Chris naturally developed a new habit of producing electronic music while traveling. After completing his PhD in Physics at the University of Sydney he found a position at NASA Ames Research Center in Northern California, one of NASA’s 10 centers around the US. There Chris worked on several fascinating projects, including a lunar lander, an electric airplane, and he also co-invented the world’s smallest satellite called PhoneSat.

With the success of PhoneSat, Chris and his friends were emboldened to try something ambitious, so they left NASA to start Planet Labs. Today Planet Labs has launched over 200 satellites that were designed under Chris’s leadership. Leveraging his years of experience with computer music, Chris has taught the introductory workshop on electronic music production at the last two annual Taxi Road Rallies in Los Angeles.

Chris has no regrets about pursuing his space career, but always felt music would one day become his focus. With a lifetime of music production experience and a lower-stress job that afforded him a bit more free time, he assumed his alter-ego as DR CHRISPY and suddenly entered a prolific phase of writing with the feeling he now had something to say. DR CHRISPY’s goal as an artist is to connect music and tech while bringing a message of hope and empowerment to his audience.

In 2016, DR CHRISPY began creating lyrical songs in addition to his instrumental music. This material will be released on his next album project. Chris still hopes one day to take himself beyond the Earth’s atmosphere, and feels he still has the passion to start another space company one day. You can catch more of Chris’s space and technology thoughts on his personal twitter account at twitter.com/cboshuizen.

“VOYAGER AT THE HELIOPAUSE” will release online everywhere music is streamed and sold on June 14, 2019.

North/South's Season Finale – Tuesday June 18 @ 8 PM in New York

Artists for June 18 North/South Concert

June 18 Artists North/South

The North/South Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Max Lifchitz performs music by composers hailing from Argentina, Canada, Italy, the US and Venezuela.

Since founding North/South Consonance in 1980, Mr. Lifchitz, a Mexican-born composer, conductor and pianist, has devoted copious effort to promoting the work of composers underserved elsewhere.””

— New York Times

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, June 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — North/South Consonance, Inc. concludes its 39th season on Tuesday evening June 18 when the North/South Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Max Lifchitz performs music by composers hailing from Italy and the Americas.

To be heard for the first time in New York are works by Argentinean-American Hayg Boyadjian; Canadian Julia Mermelstein; Italian Federico Ermirio; Mexican-American Max Lifchitz and Venezuelan-American Teresa Carreño. Cellist Rose Bart and flutist Lisa Hansen will appear as soloists.

The concert will start at 8 PM and end approximately at 9:30 PM. It will be held at the acoustically superior air-conditioned auditorium of Christ and St. Stephen's Church (120 West 69th Street — between Broadway and Columbus) in Manhattan. No tickets or reservations needed.


Hayg Boyadjian's Fourth Canticle for flute and strings evokes a pastoral scene where a shepherd attends his sheep in a landscape of undulating hills. While the opening melancholic melody in the flute represents the loss of his sweetheart, dance-like rhythms portray the shepherd remembering happier days. The piece concludes quietly as the shepherd accepts his loss and his fate. Boyadjian was born in Paris to Armenian parents but grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he attended at the Franz Liszt Conservatory. North/South's performance of Fourth Canticle will honor the composer on the occasion of his 80th birthday.

Teresa Carreño's Adagio con larghezza is an intensely lyrical work adapted from the composer's String Quartet. Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1853, Carreño came to New York at a young age to study with Louis Moreau Gottschalk. Described by the press as the Valkyrie of the pianoforte, Carreño toured throughout Europe and was invited to perform at the White House by Presidents Lincoln and Wilson. Also a successful singer she was active as conductor of opera and authored the national anthem of her native country. She died on June 12, 1917 at her West End Avenue apartment in Manhattan.

Federico Ermirio's Concerto Breve for cello and strings is a dramatic composition in three sections where the soloist and ensemble function as musical rivals. While at first a mere accompanist of the solo cello the ensemble gradually transforms itself into a second soloist as the piece unfolds. Born in 1950 in Genova Ermirio studied with Goffredo Petrassi at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome and taught at the Puccini Conservatory in La Spezia. His works have earned prizes at several international compositions and have been performed throughout Europe. A few seasons back the North/South Chamber Orchestra premiered and recorded his Landscapes of a Soul.

Max Lifchitz's Brightness Aloft is based on the lilting melody Xicochi Conetzintle — a 17th century Christmas Villancico written for the Mexico City Cathedral. A lullaby, its title Nahuatl name means "Sleep, O my Child" obviously referring to baby Jesus. The composition consists of a series of unassuming variations on the motet's iridescent melody which is introduced at the opening by the solo violin. The work was written during the early days of February 2015 while reacting to the gradual increase in daylight that effortlessly follows the Winter Solstice. Lifchitz began his musical training in his native Mexico City before being a scholarship to attend The Juilliard School. More than 60 compact disc albums feature his performances and compositions.

Julia Mermelstein's Shift explores moments of musical transparency through the awareness of space and movement. Musicians are asked to externalize their breathing through their bowing thus allowing their sound to become an extension of their inner pulse. All of these elements together reveal a broader form of how movements interconnect and subtly change over time. Based in Toronto, Mermelstein music is influenced by Buddhist philosophy, psychology, and ritualistic tendencies that shape its relationship to form, stillness, and sense of space. Her music Her works has been performed throughout Canada and Japan and is being heard in New York City for the time as part of this concert.


Cellist Rose Bart made her solo debut at age 11 performing Haydn's Cello Concerto in C major with the Minnesota Sinfonia. A graduate of Oberlin and The Juilliard School, Ms. Bart captured top prizes at the New York International Artists Competition, Hellam Young Artist Competition, Atlantic Symphony Concerto Competition, Schubert Club Competition and Thursday Musical Competition. Her solo engagements include performances with the Youth Orchestra of the Americas, Lake Tahoe Festival Orchestra, Minnesota Sinfonia, Minneapolis Civic Orchestra and the Minnetonka Symphony Orchestra.

Flutist Lisa Hansen's critically acclaimed EMI/Angel recording of Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto Pastoral with the London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has been broadcast worldwide. The New York Times described her playing as "irresistibly lyrical" while Fanfare proclaimed: "One might well prefer Hansen to Galway." A graduate of The Juilliard School, Ms. Hansen is now the flute professor at Kean University. She has performed and recorded with North/South Consonance since 1988.

Since its inception in 1980, the North/South Consonance, Inc. has brought to the attention of the New York City public over 1,000 works by composers hailing from the Americas and elsewhere representing a wide spectrum of aesthetic views. Its 39th consecutive season was made possible in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support provided by the Women's Philharmonic Advocacy, the Music Performance Trust Fund as well as the generosity of numerous individual donors.

An Interview with Nicole Brandon, Talented Actress and Motivational Speaker

Nicole Brandon, Talented Actress and Motivational Speaker

Dame Nicole Brandon – Actress – Humanitarian – Author – Producer – World Class Athlete

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 7, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Q: Thank you so much for speaking to us today, Nicole. So where were you born?
A: Atlantic City, New Jersey

Q: What was your early life like?
A: I had the most unusual childhood of anybody I know. The day I was born, my grandfather had had a heart attack in Philadelphia, so my parents raced from the Atlantic City hospital to the hospital in Philadelphia. My family thought that if my grandfather knew that he had a grandchild, he would live, and he did until I was 12, so I guess I saved a life my very first day. I was only about two hours old and I was already in rescue mode.

Q: How do you feel that unusual story relates to how your life operates today?
A: I believe that I was born to do this work, and that’s just the way my life will always operate. I was molded and etched to help humanity.

Q: So, you sense that you’ve always had an idea of what your “mission” is. What would you say that is?
A: I am here as a bridge between the physical and spiritual world. I have the uncanny ability to understand how to be unlimited in a physical body. So that’s why I’m an actress, a trapeze artist, a contortionist, and a martial arts master. I have a physical body that has no limitations whatsoever, and I understand how to be here in absolute freedom and unlimited power, and I want to use that to help people, all people how to live in their bodies and to be free. Free of uncomfortability, free of pain, free of sadness, free of heartache, free of fear, free of constrictions, barriers, walls or hurdles and to trust their body and to trust themselves to reach, and to have it all.

Q: You are in the process of writing another book, and is the book you are writing in any way related to this divine mission?
A: It is, absolutely, and it teaches people to love in a way that they’ve never understood how to love before, and how to live with that newfound freedom. A baby is born, and they instantly cry, but the first physical motion any of us make is to “reach.” If someone leans in, a baby will automatically grab their finger. It is a natural, instinct to “Reach” When we stop reaching, we become out of alignment.

Q: Modern life has provided many people lots of anxiety and obstacles. Why are so many people in this modern world so out of alignment?
A: They think that they have, to control everything, instead of living freely. When we travel and look outside ourselves, we have a front row seat and a window to the world. What a view. What a life changer when you have clarity and vision, hope and dreams and when you can see what is happening in the world. That’s why it’s so important to meditate. To learn to mediate within the stress, within your busy life. When you can meditate in Times Square or in traffic, on the bus, or train or plane or in the middle of a chaotic world or busy day, that’s the gift. Learning to center yourself will bring so much joy to your life. Most people don’t have problems. Most people’s problems are actually – other people’s problems. When you live from a place of a grander perspective, your entire life changes.


Nicole Brandon is one of the most sought after speakers worldwide.

While writing Free Throw, I thought about all the emotions I experienced playing basketball. I wanted to make something that was fun and could be heard in basketball gyms throughout the world.”

— NovaCain The Blind Rap God

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 7, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? NovaCain The Blind Rap God had big dreams of being an NBA superstar. He spent hours practicing his handles, perfecting his jump shot, and playing pick-up games. All that hard work was for nothing, once he began losing his eyesight at the age of 17. "Without basketball I was truly lost," said NovaCain. "There was a big gap in my life that was filled with depression."

After learning how to live life as a blind man, NovaCain decided that he wasn't going to let his depression get the best of him. "I got tired of being sad," said NovaCain. "When you're depressed, life keeps going even when you don't feel like going on." Luckily he found a new passion, creating original songs.

Today, NovaCain The Blind Rap God is a rising star within the music industry. Partnering with Grammy-Award winning producer Cassius Jay, NovaCain has created what critics are describing as a hit song. “While writing Free Throw, I thought about all the emotions I experienced playing basketball,” said NovaCain. “I wanted to make something that was fun and could be heard in basketball gyms throughout the world.”

Like most viral songs, Free Throw is accompanied by a dance created by The Blind Rap God himself. “Since I’m blind, I had to keep it simple to make sure I don’t trip over my own feet,” said NovaCain with a huge smile. The dance consists of a side step, crossover motion, and ends with a jump shot… Swish! Free Throw is available on all platforms for streaming.
