A new life for Angela Moyra's "Nothing Lasts" in Japan.

She already has a full-length album available through a Japanese label (Fickle Island, 2015) which was also successfully released in the US and Benelux. Angela must have met the right people during her Japanese tour in 2015 as Tokyo based label Insense Music Works will now be introducing an exclusive acoustic version of popular single "Nothing Lasts" produced by David Michael Ott (Los Angeles). On June 7th "Nothing Lasts" will appear on the compilation album "HONEY meets ISLAND CAFE - CALIFORNIA DREAMING". This album features artists associated with California and the West Coast. Angela Moyra, originally from the Netherlands, now resides in California and this breezy acoustic song fits her locale perfectly. This new version of "Nothing Lasts" and her upcoming album will inevitably lead to more live appearances next year in Japan.

Deni Bonet - On Tour!!

Her name sounds French, her voice sounds "New Yawk" and her music sounds spectacular. 

Deni Bonet is almost half way through a gruelling and successful month long tour through the UK, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. Promoting her latest album "Bright Shiny Objects" and the plaintive  (2nd) single from the album ("Palisades"), the hard work is paying off. 

Audiences are raving and CD's are flying off the merchandise table. The "old school" method of playing clubs and pubs up and down the British Isles suits Deni's violin based songs. Each number instantly grabs you - whether seeing her for the first time or the 50th time, the music is not what you hear every day. But now you can hear them everyday!  All day....on CD, on iTunes and all the digital sites you can get your hands on.  

A recent radio appearance on 102.2 FM in Dublin will be followed by one in Gouda, Netherlands and various points in between. 

And Belgium....here she comes!

Birgit - Big News!

Eleven years is a long time to wait. Since her Zip Records debut "True Stories I Made Up", Birgit has appeared in several motion pictures, plays and musical productions, TV shows and modelling gigs. And over the years, she has amassed a treasure trove of melodies and lyrics for new songs - dreamy bitter sweet pop as the soundtrack to her life.

In September 2017, Amsterdam native Birgit returns to the record shops and radio with a teaser; the prelude to a good 'ol fashioned album which will be released by Zip Records in 2018 (distributed by SONY and PIAS). 

Birgit is the "total package" - sultry, sensual, sensational and splendiferous!

Our Snowapples - a little update.

Holland's group "Snowapple" joined forces with four super Mexico City musicians for a sold out tour throughout the US West Coast. After the last So Cal show on April 2, the Dutch girls headed home to Amsterdam for a shower and a shave and returned to Mexico City a few days later. In April 2017, they will be recording some old favorites with a Latin twist and some new songs......with a Latin twist.

Staff from Zip Records witnessed incredible shows in Sausalito (at the famous Record Plant), Oakland and the band's home away from home....San Francisco's "Amnesia". The six musicians brought out the best of their recordings and wowed the listeners with songs, the likes of which, you truly have never heard before. 

Snowapple's 2017 album release "Tracks" continues to receive glowing reviews on both sides of the ocean and US college radio is next.

Fans in Holland have not been forgotten. Catch them live on May 26 at De Witte Kerk in Hauwert at 8:15 PM. The town is spelled correctly and for the US fans......it will be in a light colored place of worship.
