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.

Make Money From Your Music Videos on Social Media Sites Like Instagram But You Need an ISRC Number!

Did you know that you can get paid for your music or lyric videos that you post on Instagram? But only if you have an ISRC number embedded into the master file. An ISRC number tracks your playable streams turning your quality work into revenue or in other words, royalties. If you use Instagram to promote your music then you definitely don’t want to miss out on this!

Music and lyric videos in the past were considered for promotional use only. This has evolved along with the collection of royalties. You can now collect additional royalties from music videos, and lyric videos on streaming platforms such as Facebook and YouTube. The only requirement is to have an embedded ISRC code in those videos. ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) is an essential part of your master file in order for you to collect royalties. The ISRC number is tracked online and is reported to your distributor and those distributors would send out royalties accordingly. For more information, check with your distributors and PROs (Performing Rights Organization). You can also learn more info on YouTube 

To add an ISRC Code to your master audio and music video files, you must get one from an RIAA  licensed vendor. Web ‘n Retail is licensed to do so. In addition, Web n’ Retail is a music marketing agency and has helped musicians with marketing campaigns for over 25 years.

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.

I think it was 1995 when Rock ‘n Retail worked the “Live At Roseland Ballroom” record for Capricorn records and a girl I remember was named Rooth Blackman who was (I believe) somehow related to Jeff Brody (I could be wrong about that however!).  I just found her on linkedin, she too is still in the music biz!  Then later in life, Rock ‘n Retail had a music video production company client in Denver, CO and was at Red Rocks Amphitheater to see them perform years later…then met Warren Haynes at the editing facility…so I guess we are kinda like Govt. Mule groupies here huh?

How Do Artists And Businesses Navigate The Murky Water Of Online Music Marketing?

In the ever evolving sector of digital music marketing there is no question that it is getting a lot harder and simultaneously a lot easier to market music in a quick and effective manner that generates results. As an artist and/or a business, your time is better spent cultivating your artistry and working out ways to enhance the consumer’s experience. This is much more important than it may have been a few years ago, and that is due to the increasing accessibility of music and artists alike. With a multitude of social media outlets offering users the opportunity to stream, download and listen to over millions of songs at the click of the button, an artist can’t afford to ignore the power of social media, and neither can a business. Online music marketing may seem costly, but a well thought out marketing campaign from an online music marketing company not only can boost your audience but also save you time and money along the way
