Michael Jameson will have you tapping your feet to his funky NYC beats !!!

Hailing from Asbury, New Jersey comes masterful studio artist Michael Jameson. Born May 20, 1955 Jameson spins an infectious funk sound distilled for the NYC back alley set, the perfect theme to smokey streets, neon lights and early morning affairs. With a strong foundation in the styles of American music and influences such as the likes of the Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder and Al Green; Jameson’s an artist that successfully travels that line of taking retro elements of American Popular music and bringing them into the contemporary landscape.

A well versed performer on the east coast circuit, tight nit production perfectly translates to the stage which anybody who has been lucky enough to see the man live can vouch for. Jameson got his start in the local gigs around his home town of Jersey, quickly focussing on his career as a solo artist and begun developing his own trademark sound.

After the great success of releasing his first record 'Summer Love' in 2009 Jameson teamed up with Damien Reilly and Danny Saber in 2015 to re-work a number if his tracks from the 80's and give them a new feel. The results have been astounding with more than 500 radio stations througout North America playing "Summer Love". A top 10 radio hit in Australia with "Summer Love" with a huge note of thanks to Andrea Marr and the accolaides and success shows no sign of slowing down.

The Blue Pie License Teams have been very very very busy with the music licensed to a number of TV shows. We expect to have announcements on the shows and dates for episodes to air shortly .......did we say show was CSI something ? .....Ohhhh we forgot to mention that !!!

Shhhhhhh more news to follow and so if you're into Urban American Funk Rock look no further than Michael Jameson.

I am Duckeye, Punching Dicks so you don't have to!

Have you ever had that insatiable urge to just run around repeatedly punching all the dicks you can find?... Me neither. Though the same can not be said by metal band I am Duckeye in their 2012 official video clip for the catchy single, appropriately named, 'Punching Dicks'. As you may have already imagined the hilarious video clip consists of the 3 of the 4 band members; Matt, Sam & Jules (unfortunately and i quote "Sean was @ soccer on film day") running around town punching themselves and each other in the dick, as well as some general idiotic fun in children's play grounds and the middle of the street.

The song is a lot of fun to sit back and laugh at, so check it out if you're up for a laugh or just have nothing else to do!

What do you get when you throw a group of middle aged men into a makeshift basement studio in Hamilton for the third year in a row?......... Thats right everyone the long wait is over, Season 3 of the Cadillac Bill show has arrived !!!

It was only yesterday night i was lying in bed thinking to myself... 'I need more videos of animals, pointless banter, nonsensical news reports, aliens, poorly edited scene transitions and old men in golden jackets in my life'. Thank god The Cadillac Bill Show Exists to satisfy these very specific needs!

For those of you who've never heard of The Cadillac Bill Show do yourself a favour, grab a bag of Doritos, a mild hallucinogen, sit back and prepare your face for the most comically cringe worthy variety show the world has to offer. Based and filmed in the small Canadian town of Hamilton, The Cadillac Bill Show has been providing its low budget, hilariously dry toilet humour for 2 seasons already; now by the will of God and overwhelming demand of the fans Bill is gracing the world with a 3rd season of wackiness.

Cadillac Bill and the creeping bent orchestra have been around since their hay day of rock N' roll in the 80's and what other group of middle aged men are more qualified to host pointless Canadian variety show other than a crew of washed up rockstars of the 80's? Absolutely nobody! Bill himself was voted the number 2 TV personality in all of Hamilton losing only to Matt Haze the weather man on account of his brilliant tan, no word of a lie, check out season 3 episode 1 if you don't believe me. Aside from the return of the regulars, famous guest star 'Drew Barrymore's portrait' is making another return for the 3rd year running which is some great news, as that picture is probably the most famous thing the show has going for it.

Despite what reservations all you nay sayers may have this is a genuinely entertaining show if only for its pure insanity and the priceless attitude of the Host Cadillac Bill, who seems to be physically incapable of expressing emotion. Whether intentional or not Bill's inability to change the tone of his voice makes many of the shows skits and his reactions just that much funnier, the show's content is random, hilariously dumb, doesn't make a lick of sense and Bill knows it. How many other shows do you know that can go from watching clips of penguins frolicking to an inside look at the transgender night life of Hamilton? The answer is none, there are no rules on the Cadillac Bill show.

Season 3 has somehow achieved the impossible and brought even more random variety to the most random variety show in existence. So if your living under a log and want to find out whats going on in the world or have absolutely nothing else to do with yourself, don't waste any more of your precious time not watching season 3 of The Cadillac Bill Show! If no guilty pleasure is derived from watching this insane show then you may want to see a doctor for treatment of a chronic case no sense of humour.

John G Delivers Powerful EP 'Hustle With Conviction' Reflecting His Life in Music.

African hip-hop artist John G has released his new EP Hustle With Conviction this year in February. The five tracks are a teaser for what could be a larger project in Gangsta Rap and Hip Hop for John G. Collaborating with fellow artists such as rapper Sky Dymex and singer who goes only by the name Stephen, John G has created music that reflects the world around him.

The first number on Hustle With Conviction is the only song where John G offers just himself. ‘My Story’ keeps a heavy bass beat and acts as an introduction to the whole EP. His verses muse about the vices around him but staying close to his faith keeping John G on his musical path. Expressing his music isn’t a stereotype, it’s just real life.

The next two tracks on the EP pick up the pace rapidly. ‘From the Street’ delivers a faster paced dance beat as John G raps about rising above the individuals trying to hold him back. Stephen features in this track to sing the main hook “I come from the streets.” ‘Increase the Peace’ is more aggressive, with both John G and Sky Dymex spitting out verses about the street violence they see. With a grunting “c’mon” dropping into the beat, ‘Increase the Peace’ is a critical reflection about the life both rappers have experienced.

The final numbers in ‘Hustle With Conviction’ look at different aspect of John G’s life. ‘Thug Love’ and ‘Teach You Right’ are tunes centred around love. Thug Love a slower tune that is dedicated to the woman is sticks by his side and Teach You Right is making a promise to show his love interest what love could be like with John G. Stephen provides vocals in both tracks, his deep voice featured in the chorus adding another element to the songs.

Hustle With Conviction is just the beginning for John G as a rapper and artist in the industry. Purchase his music now on iTunes.

Destiny Records Flourishing Out of Nigeria and growing new music markets for their roster with the help of the Australian Government and Blue Pie Records!

Emerging from the 10th most populous country in the world with over 180M people, Nigeria's "Destiny Records Nigeria" and "Destiny Records Africa" are building a world class roster of artists with the help of Blue Pie Records.

Founder and CEO of Destiny Records, Judah Chiedu has been working with Blue Pie Records for over eight years and in 2014 he established his very own record label in Africa, called Destiny Records Nigeria named after his wife. Destiny Records Nigeria was developed on the belief that talent and good music will rise to the top. And this is certainly happening now for Judah's label and its roster of artists.

“Destiny Records was founded on my belief and desire to provide a totally transparent reporting process for artists and labels in Africa that will allow them to be able to develop new markets with global business partners." Jude Cheidu, CEO Destiny Records Nigeria

Ever since its formation, Destiny Records Nigeria has worked closely with Blue Pie Records to develop the systems and processess to streamline the ingestion of music and video clips over the internet. This global partnership has opened new markets in the USA, Asia and Australia to provide real opportunity for African artists and label partners that previously was not possible due to poor internet services and the high cost to open up these markets.

With the help of Blue Pie Records and its 115 + distribution and media partners, Destiny Records has been able to grow and offer an incredible opportunity for its roster of artists to access these new markets. With most services asking for up to $200 USD a year to get an album and a single track out to the global music markets, this cost has prevented many artists from distributing their music. $200 USD is almost a months wages in Nigeria. Destiny Records has been able to offer a no cost up front business model to its artists and label partners, with thanks to Blue Pie. With this support and the help of the Blue Pie label teams in the USA and Australia, all of the ingestion costs have been paid for by Blue Pie, so the artists and labels do not have to pay for artwork, basic marketing tools or distribution fees upfront.

"We are a label and distribution company that understands what it takes to make an artists successful and delivery of a transparent reporting process to the African content that has not always been available in the past. It is an exciting time for our company as we grow our business. Nigeria is an emerging 3rd world market and people do not realise that $200 USD is close to a months wages here.

With the help of Blue Pie and my supporters here in Africa we have been able to offer a zero cost model for all artists to get an album or a single on the retailers and we pay all the costs upfront. This means artists that have limited budgets, but ones that are still producing incredible music can now access the global music markets and at least be able to get their music out to the world without having to pay delivery fees.

We would like to extend a huge note of thanks to Blue Pie and the Australian Government for its support of Blue Pie and our label. We see a great future building and one that will have real change in our local market with this support. This program and the work that Blue Pie does in Africa does not go un-noticed and we expect to replicate the model into our surrounding African nations over the next 24 months. The market is massive and we are already swamped but we are excited about the future and what this means to our country and the artists we have signed."
Jude Cheidu, CEO Destiny Records Nigeria

Check out Destiny Records Nigeria's soundcloud with artist Mahansa with his song "I Can't Breathe" below. This is just one of over 200 + artists that now enjoy the ability to reach a global audience without the huge cost burdens upfront that other outlets may charge.

This all American soul singer / song writer has conquered it all and he's not putting down his guitar any time soon!

Stewart Francke has been a household name for lovers of folk rock since the early 90's when he released his first album 'House of Lights', since that point Stewart has been killing it in the rock scene, being recognised by and compared to other rock legends including the likes of Bruce Springsteen.

Despite this terrible news Francke had no intentions of slowing down or tapping out, he continued to fight, eventually beating the disease; now he continues to write and record, focusing all his energy into his family, craft and bone marrow donor activism.

Stewart has opened for some huge gigs for dozens of high priority stars ranging from Sheryl Crow to Steve Earle. In 2011 he recorded a duet with the one and only Bruce Springsteen 'Summer Soldier', Springsteen speaks very highly Stewart claiming he makes "beautiful music."

Compiled from 20 years of studio albums, 'Midwestern' features 16 of Stewart's finest work plus two new unreleased songs. "When we went back through all 14 releases, and put these songs together as a whole, it quickly formed its own identity as a record.

Why'd the blonde climb the chain link fence? Jackie Martling has the answer

If political correctness is your shtick, being offended comes easily to you or hearing dirty jokes is an absolute repellent, look away now! Or really looking away should have begun since the late seventies considering that's how long Jackie Martling has been in the comedy business. Starting out in a music comedy trio The Off Hour Rockers Martling in 1983 took his ample collection of jokes into radio and television. For the next eighteen years Martling became a fixture in the business, gracing audiences of the Howard Stern Show as the "joke man."

Whilst on the show and after he left, Jackie continued to expand his comedic repertoire with the indecent, lewd and downright hilarious. Self-producing comedy albums such as What did you expect? and Goin' Ape! Martling also since 1993 has released six more dirty joke CDs, a DVD (A Safe Distance From Genius) and five joke books including best seller Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling's Disgustingly Dirty Joke Book. Jackie also released an app in 2009 called the Jackie Button, which currently houses the more g-rated jokes and sounds from the Joke Man's own collection.

Today you can find Jackie still touring as a stand-up comedian, currently performing in shows across America and stay very present on social media. With over thirty-five thousand followers, Martling likes to tweet out a joke every day as a reminder that collection of jokes still has yet to be used up.

The Cure for your Rock Drought

Not too sure what Rihanna could possibly be working on? Definitely do not want to share a pillow with Zayn or figure out what Justin Bieber means? If you're just missing the pure rock sounds of KISS, Black Zabbath or AC/DC look no further than Swedish rockers Märvel.

Forming in 2002, The King (John Steen), Speedo (Ulrik Bostedt) and The Vicar (Tony Samuelsson) bonded on a USA high school exchange over drinking beer, lousy grades and playing rock n roll.

Since their first two albums Five Smell City and Thunderblood Heart the band not believing in replacing members have brought in two new bassists, The Aviator and the Burgher. So for those who are counting, Märvel is a power trio with five members.

Following the addition of new members, Märvel have released two further albums (Warhawks of War and Hadal Zone Express). Their latest work though is mini album The Hills Have Eyes released in February 2015 and produced by Fred Estby.

With their second release on the mini-album being a W.A.S.P. cover of 'L.O.V.E. Machine', Märvel flaunt their high energy vocals, flesh throwing guitar riffs and head banging beats transforming this classic into a killer work of their own.

Performing at The Pipeline in London this March, Märvel give a riotous show dressed up in leather balaclavas and outfits to match their very own alter egos.

Rock out out their second single release from their mini-album The Hills Have Eyes

So if you're still in search for a hard rock revival with a flair of Scandinavian glamour, check out everything Märvel has to offer!

Great new single released by Pete Hawkes, "Riddle of the East" from his album Acoustic Collection

From his album The Acoustic Collection comes the soul churning 'Riddle of the East.' Leading with his quintessential folk acoustic styling, Pete Hawkes entwines the instrumental with electric guitar, violin and saxophone at the very end. Influenced by blues guitarist Davey Graham in his early years as a performer, 'Riddle of the East' may not hold the rhythm of a typical blues song but holds all the melancholy and sadness that is expected.

The acoustic and electric guitar battle throughout the number. Hawkes composing the performance of the guitars as if locked in a lovers quarrel, starting gently but quickly building into a great crescendo of strings. The other instruments featured tie in terrifically to tell of a bittersweet sorrow.

The title of the track 'Riddle of the East' perhaps even explaining the turmoil Hawkes faced during his time and subsequent deportation during the time of Communist China as part of the underground Jazz scene.

Once this French Virtuoso picks up his accordion you wont wont him to put it back down!

Ever imagined yourself strolling through the streets of Paris to the gleeful tunes of an accordion, just like the actors in those movies? Well thanks to French Composor and accordion player Jacques Pellarin we lovers of traditional French music can experience the sounds of France wherever we go (unfortunately the Parisean streets will remain in Paris). Jacques Pellarin has brought the sounds of the French country side to all corners of the globe and we should thank him dearly for that.

Pellarin begun his career as a soloist musician in 1984 with performances of classical and Russian music in Switzerland and Rhone-Alps. He Continued touring Europe performing in classical concerts and perfecting his art for the next 20 years up until 2004 where Jacques decided to end his career as a classic concert performer. From here Pellarin decided to pursue a more 'jazzy', up beat style, whilst still paying homage to his 'classical' origins. From 2005-2007 Pellarin joined somewhat of a Jazz 'dream team'; accompanying Pellarin on his accordion were the likes of, Yann Pajean a master of percussion, Diego Fano on the saxaphone, Bertrand Belly with the bass and Claude Noventa plucking his acoustic guitar. This group travel around Latin America and a number of European countries with a diverse list of musical styles including; Latin jazz, nuevo tango, waltzs swing, mambo and samba. Jacques still performs with members on this group in his new crew, the 'Jacques Pellarin Quartet' which has managed to create a modern and innovative sound through the combination of the accordion and the electric bass.

Pellarin is a superbly lyrical writer and player, his style of writing will put an instant skip in your step and inspire a great appreciation for the melodic, upbeat rhythm of the French. Below is one of his newer compositions 'Valse Pour Lucette', give it a listen and enjoy the artistic genius of Jacques Pellarin.
