RDGLDGRN Impacting Top 40/Hot AC Radio

RDGLDGRN

RDGLDGRN are impacting Top 40/Hot AC radio with their single, “Elevators”.

RDGLDGRN (pronounced red gold green) have already distinguished themselves in the DC music scene. Their highly stylized sound (that Go Go drum beat- a distinct DC rhythm) takes hip-hop infused punk and indie rock to create something refreshingly unique, is getting attention from fans stretching far beyond the DC niche scene.

Comprised of three members who identify as Red, Gold, and Green, RDGLDGRN began making music in their basement studio, drawing from a vast and almost ironically diverse pool of influences like Chuck Brown, Vampire Weekend, Outkast, The Neptunes, and Bad Brains. What many might consider a wildly ambitious, even impossible task to pull off, RDGLDGRN managed to effortlessly combine genres of music to create something new, something all their own, and something that has the music industry buzzing with excitement.

Silversel Going For Official CMJ Adds 10/13 & 10/14

Silversel Battlegrounds

Silversel is going for official CMJ adds with their album, Battlegrounds.

 

Hailing from the rich cotton fields of south Georgia, a five piece band of brothers announced their arrival on the music scene as only they could. Splynter, as their name implies, were very invasive of their surroundings. Which is the exact impression they made on the music scene. Founded and led by front man Richard Gates and Drummer Richard Saldano, the band toured the southeast enlightening the masses with their own brand of post-Southern, Hard Rock and Alternative Rock. While carving their own niche into the ever changing world of music, their high energy and entertaining shows afforded them the opportunity to support some of the greatest names in rock, like Molly Hatchet, Pat Travers, Ghost Riders and many more and including era members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackfoot, Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, Firefall, Pure Prairie League, Jimmie Van Zant, Gregg Allman Band.

The sudden departure of Richard Gates from the band in early 2009 left them in disarray and in desperate need of a new front man. As they began to pick up the pieces, they went on the hunt for a new lead vocalist. While playing several music festivals, one name kept coming up: Wally Silver. Silver’s arrival signaled a new era for the band, known then as Daysleepers. Rounding out the band was long time friend and Bassist John Wagnon and vibrant guitarist Justin Myers. Upon signing with T&T Management and Booking and Mira Vista records the band decided to change the name one last time to help ensure their place on a national and international scale. Hence, Silversel was born. With a new lead vocalist and a new name, the band went back to doing what they do best, touring and creating great music. Bassist John Wagnon has had to take some time off and Bassist George Adkins has filled in to take John’s place. Being signed with Mira Vista Records, Tate Music Group and Big Noise and took their place in the Music Industry of today. Silversel has recently been signed with SMG / SONY RED and looking forward in 2014, Silversel worldwide with SMG/SONY RED. Presently, Silversel is touring the country incorporating rock, blues, country, metal, and their own unique style of rock, while continuing their climb to the top and showing no signs of coming down. These are the tours they are a part of today.

Rick Kelly is impacting Top 40/Hot AC Radio with “She’s A Star”.

Rick Kelly is an American born singer /songwriter/producer known mostly for his pop songwriting on releases like Monrose’ Work It/Shame (Universal) a top ten single in Europe, and Close to You, a #1 smash in Asia for megastars Arashi(Fuji Pacific/Pony Canyon).

Rick Kelly has the kind of voice and a knack for melody that is both richly and warmly familiar, like the classic pop styles of Neil Diamond, Billy Joel or Frank Sinatra, or even someone more contemporary, like John Mayer. Yet it’s different from anything else you have ever heard. He’s like someone that you think you may have met before, but can’t quite put your finger on when and where.
