DISCOVERINGARTISTS.COM CELEBRATES ONE YEAR OF MUSIC PROMOTION
Website Offers Michael Tolcher Giveaway During August


Manasquan, New Jersey (PRWEB) August 1, 2004 -— It’s been one year since two college buddies created the emerging music portal, DiscoveringArtists.com. To commemorate the website’s success, the pair has partnered with Octone Records this month to host a Michael Tolcher merchandise giveaway.

To celebrate a year filled with live show travels and booming industry connections, an exclusive interview with Tolcher will be posted on the website. Contest participants will be asked to write a 200-300 word review of Tolcher’s CD “I Am”. The grand prize winner will receive a signed CD, T-shirt and wristband. Three runner-up contestants will receive a signed Tolcher poster. DiscoveringArtists.com will judge all entries, which are due by August 31, 2004.

Tolcher released his debut album, “I Am” (produced by PopRox) in May 2004. Recorded by Chris Shaw (Bob Dylan, Weezer, Dashboard Confessional) and mixed by Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, The Cure) and Mark Endert (Fiona Apple, Madonna), the album boasts an impressive mix of alternative rock and R&B sounds.

”I’m excited to present our website visitors merchandise from an artist we love,” said Pasculli. “Working with Tolcher and our friends at Octone is the icing on the cake.”

Kristen Pasculli and Dan Galimidi, both 26-years-old and from New Jersey, met in college and devised the plan for the website during Fall 2002. Because their skills complimented each other, launching the site was easy-- and building a reputable name in the music industry was enjoyable.

Pasculli uses her journalism background to provide interviews, reviews and features for the website. During the past year, she has taken a strong interest in the music industry business, and is the promotion manager for Boston’s electrified folk rocker, Cara Aley. She was also able to successfully expanded her freelance writing clientele by opening up her services to artists of all musical genres.

“The past year has taught me so much about the business, and I’ve enjoyed making down-to-earth contacts. I’m hoping to work with more artists in the future to promote their work,” she said. “Seeing musicians we’ve featured get more exposure has been the most gratifying aspect of it all.”

Galimidi, a graphic artist, created and developed the website design planning it with an easily navigable layout in mind. Galimidi contributes original photography of the live shows he and Pasculli attend. This year, he photographed more than 35 live shows in the Northeast. He also expanded the website’s contest program by contacting artists and labels to offer merchandise for free giveaways. Galimidi successfully conducted more than five contests during the year, and he plans to increase the program in the near future.

“Our contests include autographed CD's, concert tickets, and other merchandise from our featured artists. It helps promote the artists, as well as bringing return visitors to our site,” he said.

Pasculli and Galimidi worked extensively during the year to promote the Decent Xposure compilation CDs put forth by Ben Hordell and Cari Gelber of Everfine Records. They continue to promote the Decent Xposure collection, which features the DiscoveringArtists.com logo on the covers.

Cara Aley: Bend

There's something about Cara Aley that inspires me. Maybe it's her voice – gentle yet edgy; or her music – complex string rhythms that entice the soul; or her lyrics – powerful and straightforward. Whatever it is, she sent me her newest album, Bend (available in August 2003), and I was thoroughly impressed to find a harmonious merge of acoustics with a wordly touch. There's no detailed storytelling here, only her feelings spilled out overflowingly into music that accompanies the emotions described in her lyrics. Fluidly written, these lyrics paint emotional masterpieces about life and love, simple yet complex. My favorite track, "Figure It Out" gives an introspective view into Cara's outlook on life, and is based on a popular Shakespearian quote. In "Better Things", Cara sings about the role of positivity and love in life. "And do any of us know what the forward brings/Need to keep our hopes in line for better things/Take the time now to show me where my heart is going/Care enough to know that all I need is knowing/That you're going to be there when I return."
You'll get more than perfect romance songs with this girl – she can sing about the destruction of love ("Luke") as eloquently as the emergence of it ("Take Me Away"). I feel like I've met someone that I aspire to be when I hear this album-- for Cara has opened up her soul for all to hear.
Favorite Tracks: Figure It Out, Luke

Kristin Cifelli: So Long My Love

Her voice is feminine and soothing; her sound a dreamy meld of acoustic and electric guitars — so it's pretty much safe to say that this CD is a new favorite of mine. Cifelli is a songstress who doesn't need the e-bow, strings or percussion to shine, because her raspy vocals resonate vibrantly solo. Still, this enriched arrangement of instruments brings Cifelli's career to new heights. "So Long My Love" is a track with sort of an emotional twist, as Cifelli sings about saying goodbye and holding on at the same time. She starts with, "So long my love/It should've never gone on and on like this/Too long, my love/I was doomed by the suguary taste of one kiss." By the end of the song, Cifelli is reverting her song title to explain how long she's waited on her muse ("So long/I've waited/I've waited"). This is brilliant songwriting if you ask me; when a writer can break out from the traditional rhyming market, sing of something deep, and etch it into your soul with a flicker of creativity. She sings of family ties in "I'll Run", and lingers over a lost love in "Sad Place". "Love Your Hurt" has a folk-country vibe, with endearing lyrics about unconditional love. "Let It Go" is the gem of the album, personally. It's an empowering song about forgiveness and growth. As a whole, the album has a little Norah Jones happening; and some Sarah McLachlan and Aimee Mann tossed in as well. She has tracks that are pretty as pink flowers and other songs dark and haunting in their rhythm. I still can't compare her to anyone else out there, and that's why I adore her work.
Favorite Tracks: Let It Go, So Long My Love

FROM THE STREETS OF THE SCENE TO THE STEPS OF THE STAGE:

THE UPROAR STAGE SETS BREAKING BANDS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

__________________________________________________________________________________________



Don’t be fooled by the nice p.a. (donated by Peavey), or the growing number of media sponsors backing the Uproar Stage on the Vans Warped Tour this year. The Uproar Stage, a side-stage daily from July 13th – August 19th, on the highly anticipated tour, is packed with a number of buzz-worthy labels and also a handful of new ones.



“If you want to see the bands from labels you love, great! We have them. But if you come to the tour to fall in love with new bands, you’re the person I booked for. That’s what I always looked for each year when I went to the Warped Tour, which is why it is so exciting to be involved in this stage,” says Melissa Garten of Static Management, booker of the Uproar Stage. “There is an amazing line-up each day, the support we are receiving is amazing, what more could you ask for?”

WEDNESDAY @ The Barrelhouse- FREE!!! [17 Feb 2004|01:33pm]

indiemusicrocks


NYC's Teddy Goldstein w/ local trio The Whitney B Band!

Teddy just released a new CD and is on the road! This is a FREE show.. starts at 9pm.

Teddy Goldstein is known as much for his clever songs - whether sensitive or comedic - as for his energetic and unpredictable shows. A master of both songwriting and theatrical timing, he keeps his performances fresh with hysterical ad-lib lyrics and improvised musical solos within the tight structure of his well-crafted songs.

Goldstein is simply the funniest act I've seen in years. The Jack Benny of Folk-song timing, his comic diatribes on neurotic love can pack all the laughs of an Ally McBeal episode into one three-minute ditty.

Aware mention in December 2003 issue of Performing Songwriter magazine... [27 Dec 2003|03:58pm]

ugatraci
[ mood | bored ]

In an article about new marketing concepts for artists/bands:

Page 20 talks about compilation CDs made by Trampoline Records (headed by Pete Yorn, Rami Jaffee from the Wallflowers, and Mark Dauer from Jukebox Junkies), and goes on to say...

It's not exactly a new concept - Aware Records started in a similar fashion, and now boasts a roster including John Mayer, Wheat, and Bleu - and it seems to work.

Just a small mention, but I thought I'd share.

Cheers!

introducing Seven Star... [28 Jul 2003|04:37am]

reesestar
I don't normally do this, but.. I am.

this band isn't on Aware (however they have opened for some Aware artists) but I want to share them with you. maybe one day they will be. I believe with every ounce of me they deserve top success.

this is from their promotional information:
it may sound like a new who song or coldplay on speed, but it's not -- it's a band called seven star. with a driving acoustic soul, fuzzed-out bass, a powerful rhythm section, and just enough electric guitar, seven star can rock and entertain almost any crowd with ease. brian vander ark (the verve pipe -- vocals) says "great tunes, great vocals, great energy. one of the best bands i've seen in a long time."

the band consists of grant essig (vocals, acoustic guitar), dustin keller (acoustic and electric guitars), jaclyn mayer bass guitar), jeremiah miller (drums, backing vocals), and was formed in february of 2001. seven star began playing out in st. louis with a full electric guitar lineup, but quickly gave up the electric guitars when an early acoustic performance proved that they didn't always need them to rock. thus, seven star made a name for themselves, over the next year and a half, playing high powered acoustic music in the finest st. louis venues (mississippi nights, the pageant,
cicero's, the hi pointe, and others). during that time, seven star has had the priveledge of sharing the stage with such major label artists as sister hazel, sixpence none the richer, luce, lucky boys confusion, sponge, brian vander ark (of the verve pipe), and bleu, not to mention that seven star has received radio play on 101.1 the river (st. louis), played a live television performance on the st. louis NBC affiliate, and participated in the mars music 'band together' benefit for the victims of the 9-11 tradgedy.

the superstar wraparound EP, completed in february of 2003, sees the reinstatement of electric guitars to the band's lineup, but only where it's needed most -- the band still remains conscious of their acoustic rock roots in every song they play.

seven star has always played every show with all the energy and excitement of a band playing to a packed stadium for the first time, no matter how many people are there, and it's insanely obvious that they completely enjoy what they're doing whether they're on stage, off stage, or in the studio.

"maybe you’ve come across seven star unexpectedly, like i did. if so, chances are you were amazed that a band this young, this new, this -- well, unsigned, unhuge, and altogether deserving to be both -- could be this good." -- laura hamlett, playback magazine





stolen from GLBE

my personal words:
I've been into this band for over a year. I've seen them grow so much over that short time. I watched their audience grow as well. I brought friends to their shows, I met strangers at their shows who never seen them.. I've NEVER known a person to walk away from this band disapointed or not a fan. even when their sound system messed up when they played my college everyone was blown away. I think that's impressive.

they sound so tight. they have so much energy. so much passion. Grant's voice is amazing, for lack of better words. I highly recommend this band to you music fans.

lemme know if you give them a listen and what you think.

Hi! One of my favorite bands - the working title - joined on to Aware Records a few months ago. They will be releasing an E.P. soon... but for now you can check out their songs @ www.mp3.com/theworkingtitle. They will also have a song on the new American Wedding soundtrack, along with Mr. Nathanson... another one of my favorite artists signed to Aware.

Also, I started theworkingtitle
