Randy Hall is an American singer, guitarist, and record producer who is best known for collaborating with Miles Davis during the 1980s. Hall helped Davis arrange “The Man With The Horn”, and its title track featured lead vocals by Hall, who also played guitar, synthesizer and celesta on the track.

 

Hall recently spoke out in response to current events, stating, “I can’t wait to see us champion this and for us all to rise to a greater level of love and togetherness as human beings. I want to make a record that the whole wide world would sing, then go on tour and set the stage on fire!”

 

The chorus of “A New Way of Love” has a sweet ear-bending harmonic surprise

kissed to life by backup singers Medina Johnson and Patrice “KP” Isley while the

rhythm track gives those mature enough to remember a masterful Barry White

vibration.

Take some supremely pocketed digi-beats, bass and ambient guitar, wed them to

some delicious la-la female backing vocal garnish – all at the service of a soulfully

swaggering lead vocal – and you’ve got, “A New Way of Love.”

 

The only things this 4-minute single edit lack are a mid-song breakdown, a sexy

spoken mack laid on thick over the top and a guitar solo from master-picker Hall

(recently featured on the 2019 Miles Davis unearthed-from-the-vault collection

Rubberband).”Come on, brother. Why you holdin’ out on us?”

 

Maybe he just wants to leave us wanting more. Mission: Accomplished.

Online Marketing Experts Improve Music Streaming Stats With Spotify Playlist Placements

If you’re an independent artist who is looking to increase your music streaming on Spotify, look no further! Online marketing experts at www.SpotifyPromotions.net  prioritizes playlist placements, a proven method of improving song streaming stats across the board.

Spotify Promotions

Streaming services like Spotify have been dominating the music industry.  Spotify acts not only as a music streaming service but also a platform to expose artists since there are millions of active users and 40,000 tracks being added daily (no, that’s not a typo!).

 

We have developed what we believe is the most comprehensive playlist pitching campaign available at www.SpotifyPromotions.net  This service will get your track on REAL playlists with REAL listeners and provide longevity (keeps your numbers growing instead of a spike then a drop). That means more cash in your pocket and more people are exposed to your albums or singles!

 

Wouldn’t you like to see these kinds of increases like other Indie Artists have seen using SpotifyPromotions.net?

– –  1,470,000% in Streams
–  43,000% in # of Playlists
–  9,700% in Saves
–  1,300% in Followers
–  41,011% in Listeners

 

Other music marketing companies will make sketchy promises like, guaranteeing a specific number of streams. This is a clear indicator that the company is offering a bogus promotion. There are no crystal balls that predict specific streams unless they are controlling the numbers themselves, which goes against Spotify’s Terms and Conditions and you risk having your account shut down.

 

Web ‘n Retail also provides other services in order to maximize your online presence in the music industry at: www.MusicMarketingByWebnretail.com

Country Pop Artist Eileen Carey Welcomes October with San Diego Show

On October 10th, country pop fans of artists such as Keith Urban and Leann Rimes will have the opportunity to experience Eileen Carey live. She is a renowned vocalist who will be performing at the House of Blues in San Diego as part of the RAW Artist Showcase, beginning at 6:00pm, displaying all of her power and flair. Music Connection Magazine’s review of her previous show at the Whisky A Go Go said of Carey’s performance:

“The crowd was hooked from the moment “Hearts of Time” kicked off the night. Carey’s sassy, yet humble, stage demeanor gave off Gretchen Wilson meets Miranda Lambert vibes. [The crowd] engaged in hand clapping, line dancing and singing along … She’s not afraid to voice her thoughts and opinions. [The performance was] a perfect blend of upbeat and lower-tempo tracks showcasing her experience and versatility with ease, so much so that it came as a shock when her set was about to end.”

You really should capitalize on this opportunity to see the woman Elmore Magazine dubbed “a true musical chameleon who blends pop and rock and country influences with ease,” in person. Her unbeatable energy and charisma is uniquely refreshing, and all those in attendance of the showcase will bear witness to these traits. Her music resonates with all audiences with its engaging lyrics and captivating instrumental accompaniment.

For those not around the San Diego area next week, you can still experience Eileen Carey’s excellence. She recently released the official music video to her hit track “That Town.” The video illuminates the common struggle so many of us experience of trying to decide whether to leave the safety of our hometowns for the opportunities of the real-world, or to remain in our comfort zones. The music video carries a light mood with kids in Los Angeles embracing their bravery and entering the world outside of home.

To watch the “That Town” official video, check it out on YouTube. Other ways you can explore the talents of Eileen Carey are via Spotify. Also, to stay updated on all things Eileen Carey, visit her website and follow her Facebook and Instagram.
