Survivor released their first album in 1980 on Scotti Brothers. Their first Top-40 on the Hot 100 came the next year with “Poor Man’s Son.” Their big break would come in 1982 when the band was asked by Sylvester Stallone to provide the theme song for Rocky III.

VITAL SIGNS, was another huge success for the band, peaking at #16 on Billboard‘s “Top 200 Albums” chart thanks to the Billboard Top-20 hits “I Can’t Hold Back” (#13), “High On You” (#8) and “The Search Is Over” (#4).

INGRID MICHAELSON’S “LIGHTS OUT” AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE TOMORROW

Music Video Going Viral With Over 1.5 Million Views So Far

“Ingrid Michaelson has legit done it, again! Translation: IT’S PERFECT”

MTV Buzzworthy

“This can easily be the biggest hit of her career! This song is such a smash!”

  • 31-date National Tour Kicks Off Next Monday April 21 in Montreal

 

Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson will release her fifth studio album, Lights Out, on April 15th via Cabin 24/Mom+Pop. The first single, “Girls Chase Boys,” is now available at all digital retailers and the music video is going viral, with incredible media attention and over 1.5 million views so far. To celebrate the release Michaelson will embark on a 31-date tour which kicks off April 21st at Le National in Montreal, Quebec and will run through June 3rd at the House of Blues in Boston. Tickets are available now.

“’Girls Chase Boys’ started out as a break up song but took on a deeper meaning as I continued writing,” said Michaelson of the single. “More than just being about my experience, its focus shifted to include the idea that, no matter who or how we love, we are all the same. The video takes that idea one step further and attempts to turn stereotypical gender roles on their head. Girls don’t exclusively chase boys, we all know this. We all chase each other and in the end we are all chasing after the same thing: love.”

Beyond the sweetly buoyant “Girls Chase Boys,” presented visually in a cheeky music video that’s a stylistic homage to Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistible,” the new album finds Michaelson exploring some thoughtful, sometimes darker themes based on personal challenges she’s experienced over the last year. She also pushed her boundaries with the production of Lights Out, choosing a more inclusive creative process. Recorded in New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville, she worked with six producers and ten co-writers, including singer-songwriters Katie Herzig, Trent Dabbs and Busbee (Pink, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum) as well as A Great Big World and Mat Kearney, with whom she also shares duets.

“The last year has been one of the most challenging of my life,” said Michaelson. “This album is a reflection of all of that. It’s about being pushed to your limits and looking for help from something other than yourself. It’s about letting go and being alright with that, accepting that. I collaborated with many different writers and producers but, ironically, I believe this is the most personal record I’ve made. I feel like I needed others to save me, in a way – to get the darkness out and help turn it to light. I’m so proud of the record and of the many friends who helped me make it. And I cannot wait to perform these songs live!”

This January Ingrid partnered with Rainn Wilson and his popular video production company SoulPancake to host a series of comedic shorts entitled, “Little Kids. Big Questions.” The series pays homage to Art Linkletter and Bill Cosby and makes use of Michaelson’s earnest approach and comedic timing to draw unique and often hilarious answers out of adorable kids. Last fall, Michaelson’s popular side project ARMY OF 3 released their debut EP. ARMY OF 3, a group comprised of Michaelson, producer Chris Kuffner and director Dylan Steinberg, first drew attention on YouTube for their visually compelling music videos featuring inventive covers of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.”

Ingrid Michaelson has earned enviable name-recognition thanks to her knack for crafting beautiful, idiosyncratic songs, many of which have wafted out of your television in handfuls of Grey’s Anatomy episodes (not to mention countless other series since such as American Idol, Parenthood, and So You Think You Can Dance), in an affecting Google Chrome ad, and on VH1 as an artist You Outta Know. She has sold over 1 million albums and 5 million singles on her own label, ending up on the cover of Billboard Magazine as “the new paradigm” in the music industry. Her most recent album, 2012’s “Human Again,” was her highest-selling debut yet, reaching #1 on iTunes and Top 5 on the Billboard sales chart in its first week.

Nine-Time Grammy® Award Winner Natalie Cole to Perform at The Orleans Showroom October 26-27

Nine-Time Grammy® Award Winner Natalie Cole to Perform at The Showroom October 26-27

 

 Natalie Cole brings her timeless classics, and new Latin flavored sound, to The Orleans Showroom October 26 and 27.

Cole rose to stardom in 1975 after releasing her album, “Inseparable,” which included her first No. 1 single, “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love).” The album garnered Cole two Grammy® Awards – “Best New Artist, and “Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.”

She went on to release another 12 albums before her biggest hit, 1991’s “Unforgettable…With Love.” Best known for its duet with her late father — jazz legend Nat King Cole — the album spent five weeks at No. 1 on the pop charts, earned six Grammy® Awards, including “Song of the Year” and “Album of the Year,” and sold more than 14 million copies worldwide.

Cole’s “Still Unforgettable,” released in 2008, garnered two additional Grammy® Awards, “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album” and “Best Instrumental Accompanying Vocalist.” And in June of this year, Cole released her first Spanish-language album, “Natalie Cole En Español.”

On the current release — her first studio album in five years — Cole revisits the rich repertoire of ageless Latin standards that once opened new vistas for her father. The 12 lushly orchestrated tracks, produced by Billboard’s Latin Music Producer of the Decade Rudy Perez, features Cole’s distinctive take on three classics from her father’s catalog.

In addition to her lengthy music career, Cole has acted in various television series including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Touched by an Angel.”

Showtime each evening is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $64.95, plus tax and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.365.7075, or visiting www.orleanscasino.com.

Mat Kearney’s New Single “Hey Mama” – Out Now!

Mat Kearney’s New Single “Hey Mama” is Out Now;
First Single from New Album – Young Love – due out August 2011 on Universal Republic

Mat Kearney’s new single “Hey Mama” is out now and is the first single from his new album – Young Love – due out August 2011 on Universal Republic. “Hey Mama” is a catchy, clap-inducing tune perfect for summertime drives, so it’s no surprise that it’s already taking off on commercial radio.

The Nashville by way of Portland musician recorded Young Love in Nashville with his longtime friend and producer Robert Marvin as well as Jason Lehning. The new album is Mat’s fourth full-length studio release and the follow up to 2009’s City of Black & White.

Audiences are probably already familiar with Mat’s infectious tunes as he’s had several hit songs from past releases including “Nothing Left To Lose,” “Undeniable,” “Closer To Love,” and “All I Have.” And he seems to be a favorite among music supervisors who have featured his songs in Grey’s Anatomy, Vampire Diaries, NCIS, Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, and Gossip Girl among many others. In addition, he’s toured with several notable artists including John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Keane and Train.

To get fans ready for the new album, Mat will be hitting the road on June 13th with Owl City for a complete US tour (visit http://www.matkearney.com/ for all confirmed dates). And check out the first single from his new album now. “Hey Mama” is available through all digital partners and his new album Young Love is due out in August on Universal Republic.
