Enter The Paradox ‘Sweet Intentions’

Los Angeles-based pop-punk, progressive rock band Enter The Paradox release their upbeat single that will surely excite any fans of Blink-182, Fall Out Boy and Muse. Enter The Paradox aim to showcase their high-energy and passionate storytelling through their debut album Love, Loyalty and Mayhem: Part 1 due out Summer 2015.

“Sweet Intentions” is the first taste listeners will get until the release of their debut, a unique concept that unfolds through the lyrical prowess of front man Brian Bolen.

“From the beginning, I wanted every album Enter The Paradox made to be the essence of a story brought to life. Not just your typical love story, but one much deeper, with twists and turns you just don’t see coming; I wanted it to embody the feel of a psychological thriller with strong archetypal characters and themes,” Bolen states.

Bolen takes all the right risks that will catch anyone’s ear with the complex stories told through each song, a chapter one after another. The album follows the story of a young man named Fibonacci. Through his trials and tribulations, Fibonacci discovers the lessons of love, loyalty and mayhem.

Showcasing a melting pot of styles of cutting-edge rock, psychedelic, pop-punk, and hardcore fused together, Enter The Paradox bring their sound together in ways never before heard.

John Graham will ‘Roll the Dice’ with new single and album ‘Cold Sun’ this June

June 29th album ‘Cold Sun’ to be introduced with single ‘Roll The Dice’ on June 1st through Distinctive Records

UK born but now US based, John Graham’s new album is set to reach these shores showcasing slick, contemporary indie-rock with electronic touches and a heap of swagger. With influences including the Stone roses, Kasabian, The Cure, Depeche mode and more, it’s an album full of ideas which is primed to make an impact. The album is something of a departure for Graham, whose previous work under the name Quivver has seen him gaining countless plaudits producing house and techno music.

However, ‘Cold Sun’ and lead single ‘Roll the Dice’ prove that there are multiple strings to this particular bow, by turning out tunes which are strongly based on the indie rock genre. These hook laden, energetic tracks are then laced with dynamic electronic ideas, ported over from his experience in the EDM genres, to give them extra flavour. It’s not common that indie, rock and electronic ideas are mixed so effectively, with the latter adding superb textures to the former, and it’s certainly one hell of a combination thanks to the subtlety of John Graham’s genre bending.

This combination is showcased by this superb video for the single – not suitable for those with a fear of heights, it blends off kilter performance footage with a montage of adrenaline pumping, high risk stunts. It’s a truly compelling watch married to a fantastic musical groove.

The ‘Cold Sun’ album has been in the making for many years, being written in snatched time between full time work as a house and techno DJ and producer. It’s release is the culmination of an ambition John Graham has had for many years – to create a collection of songs that don’t fit neatly into a specific genre, and demonstrate just how versatile his writing can be.

His new music does a fantastic job of proving that thanks to a brazen and assured indie rock approach that drips with attitude. It’s a long way from the jungle and house specialist who started out in the 1990s and is well established in that environment. Over the years since, John Graham (as Quivver) has picked up myriad honours and career highs. The quality of his work can be vouched for by over 45,000 online followers, as well as record deals with Virgin, Warner Brothers &Hooj Choons who he has had record deals with in the past.

Single ‘Roll the Dice’ is out June 1st, to be followed on June 29th by the ‘Cold Sun’ album, both through Distinctive Records.

“900 Voices” – Epic Video by GRAMMY Winner Laura Sullivan

GRAMMY® winning composer, Laura Sullivan, called out to the world to join her in a powerful plan to make a music video. Her request was simple. Take a video of yourself singing her song “900 Voices” and send it to her. The response was overwhelming.

938 people from Australia, Brazil, Israel, Croatia, Korea, Kenya, India, and many other countries, participated by making videos on their cell phones and sending them to Laura.

The result is epic. 27 languages included in one song and video about love and unity. The video will be released on April 9, 2015 and is titled “900 Voices.”

These 938 amazing people will make you happy. Elena from Bulgaria, still in her hospital gown, sings and sweetly kisses her newborn son. A group of children in Uganda, who were once homeless, sing and dance like they are the richest kids in the world. A fire department of tough guys from New Jersey gives it their all.

“I was hoping to get a lot of participation, but what I received back was beyond my wildest dreams. People from all over the world and from every walk of life sent in incredible videos. Watching them moved me to tears. I hope I have honored these hundreds of wonderful people by including them in the video,” says Laura.

The resulting video, with the blending of the many voices, faces, and languages, creates a powerfully moving experience that shines a light on the unifying power of love in our world.

“900 Voices,” promises to make you smile, and maybe even cry. 938 people, 27 languages, 1 song.

50% of the music proceeds of “900 Voices” are going towards the national nonprofit Little Kids Rock. This organization partners with economically disadvantaged school districts to run music programs. To date they have served more than 325,000 children in 13 states.

“Little Kids Rock is so grateful to Laura Sullivan for her support,” says Little Kids Rock Founder and CEO, David Wish. “It’s up to the big people to stand up for the little kids, and that is exactly what Laura is doing by including Little Kids Rock in her next project, inspiring our kids, and helping bring the lifelong gift of music to even more kids in our nation’s most economically challenged school districts!”

Laura Sullivan is a producer, author and GRAMMY® winning composer and recording artist. Her original music has been included in the score of two Emmy winning documentaries, as well as in many popular television programs and advertisements for Fortune 500 companies. Her music publications are represented by BMI, which holds more than 500 of her original compositions in her prolific Composer/Songwriter catalog.
