Shout Out: Music in the Movies

Shout Out from Bill Mackie: Hi Jacqueline! I’m a friend of Glenn Goss’s. Check out this trailer from a film short I’m producing. It features a great song from Glenn, “Always There to Remind Me.”

“Harry Godfather is a film short that we are preparing for a run with Film Festivals. We are launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for that and also doing a private screening for fans and supporters. I’m planning on using two of Glenn’s songs in the film that I feel are overlooked chestnuts.”

Shout Out: Eric Muniz

20130209-172502.jpg

Hi Jacqueline, Here is a shout-out to all the AVALiveRadio family.

I’m currently giving the Hard Rock Rising Competition a go. There are many great and well known bands also competing, but I wanted to be a part of it and give it a shot, knowing that even if I don’t place, at least people will be exposed to my music in one way or another.

I uploaded “She Was Beautiful,” as the song that I’m using for the competition. People can vote by going to: (here)

Once there, they will find my picture, name, and song, along with the songs of many other local bands and musicians. Then all they have to do is select the button that says “Download” for a vote to take place, and the song will download for free while at the same time creating that vote. 0n the other hand, if they only hit the play button, then the song will only play, but it will not count as a vote because only a downloaded song counts as a vote.

Well Jacqueline, thank you so much for all the effort that you put forth into helping musicians find their way.

Thanks again,
Eric Muniz

HYUNDAI JOINS FORCES WITH THE RECORDING ACADEMY® TO CREATE “CENTER STAGE POWERED BY GRAMMY® AMPLIFIER”

Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park to Curate Program Celebrating Innovation in Music by Providing Unique Awards

Update posted by Recording Academy:
As part of a three-year partnership as the “Official Vehicle Partner” of the GRAMMY Awards®, Hyundai has teamed with The Recording Academy® to create “Center Stage Powered by GRAMMY® Amplifier,” an innovative online platform designed to provide professional mentoring and exposure for artists discovered through the GRAMMYs’ innovative GRAMMY Amplifier program.

Mike Shinoda, member of two-time GRAMMY-winning band Linkin Park, will serve as GRAMMY Ambassador and curator for “Center Stage,” which was developed based on the success of GRAMMY Amplifier. Launched by The Recording Academy in January, GRAMMY Amplifier, allows musicians to share their tracks via SoundCloud for a chance to have their music shared online by a panel of music icons.

“Center Stage” will select three artists with the most “amplification” (shares/likes) and individually award them with a recording session with a leading GRAMMY producer, production of a music video with a noted producer and/or director, or an opening act performance slot on a major tour or music festival. The winning artists will be announced at The The Recording Academy’s annual South by Southwest event in March. Visit the The Recording Academy’s Facebook page for a chance to enter the program and for a complete set of rules.

“Hyundai’s partnership with The Recording Academy ties together music’s biggest brand with Hyundai’s passion for creativity and innovation,” said Steve Shannon, Vice President of Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. “In continuing our successful relationship, ‘Center Stage’ and the GRAMMY Amplifier allows Hyundai to connect with an audience that loves music and share great music with fans everywhere.”
“Our forward-looking partnership with Hyundai is one that allows us both to push the envelope creatively,” said Evan Greene, Chief Marketing Officer for The Recording Academy. “’Center Stage’ helps us to collaboratively amplify the music creation process and highlight excellence.”

Hyundai will also play a starring role at the GRAMMYs as both the “Official Vehicle Partner” of the GRAMMY Awards and GRAMMY Week. As part of GRAMMY Week, Hyundai Equus and Genesis vehicles will grace the red carpet, chauffeur VIPs to the awards ceremony, and be on display at the official GRAMMY Celebration® after-party. The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place live on Sunday, Feb. 10, at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on the CBS Television Network from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

Hyundai Motor America, headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif., is a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Co. of Korea. Hyundai vehicles are distributed throughout the United States by Hyundai Motor America and are sold and serviced through more than 820 dealerships nationwide. All Hyundai vehicles sold in the U.S. are covered by the Hyundai Assurance program, which includes the 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable new vehicle warranty, Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and five years of complimentary Roadside Assistance.

Gossip Girl: Gucci Goes Grammy

20130130-214300.jpg

GUCCI TIMEPIECES & JEWELRY LAUNCHES THE NEW GUCCI GRAMMY®
INTERLOCKING TIMEPIECE AND ANNOUNCES GRAMMY CAMP® INITIATIVE

SANTA MONICA, California January 30, 2013 – In September 2010, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry signed a three-year partnership with The Recording Academy®, internationally known for the GRAMMY Awards®, and launched a GRAMMY® special-edition watch collection.

To honor this third year of the partnership and on the occasion of the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards®, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is pleased to introduce a new addition to the Gucci GRAMMY collection. The watch is a variant of the Interlocking G, which features a sleek and modern take on the House’s double G motif, stainless steel case, 37 mm diameter, quartz movement, and sapphire crystal.

The hallmark of this special-edition model is the bold black leather cuff that embraces the wrist, adding an urban allure to the timepiece. The cuff features the Gucci logo and a gramophone pin – the iconic symbol of The Recording Academy. The case back is also engraved with the Gucci GRAMMY logo.

The Interlocking Gucci GRAMMY watch comes in two variants: the sun-brushed stainless steel case features a black dial, while the black PVD version comes with a dark yellow dial. The design is kept entirely minimalist, displaying only the ‘Gucci’ logo and a highly original circular-grained surface that recalls the grooves on a vinyl record.

Among the new initiatives being introduced as part of the partnership in 2013, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry will support GRAMMY Camp®, a special summer program presented by the GRAMMY Foundation® for young music students from around the world with its primary mission to cultivate their talents.

Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry will identify 10 exceptionally talented young musicians who will be given the chance to attend GRAMMY Camp sessions taking place in New York and Los Angeles during summer 2013. At these camps, students will meet with industry professionals, write new music, visit recording studios and performance spaces, and attend a range of workshops. The summer activities will culminate with a concert celebrating the completion of their experience.

Music has been and continues to be a fundamental part of Gucci’s heritage and this initiative is in tune with House’s wider commitment to the cultivation and preservation of the arts and its sponsorship in other cultural areas, such as film and youth music scholarship programs.

Gossip Girl: Shout Out From Milan Heger

19195_10151436094836337_1513930527_nA.V.A Live Radio featured show guest and talented Architect, furniture designer, and artist, Milan Heger gave us a “Shout Out”

“Grateful for unexpected surprise…my “Coffee Bean Chair” was just published in the LUXE magazine. This design is sustainable, and nods to global sources of coffee as the great unifier for people in the world.”- Milan.

Check out his web site:  www.hegerfurniture.com

Listen in to the show:
www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2012/10/14/game-changer-architect-milan-heger-a-creative-visionary

This is a story of strength, creativity and determination. Milan Heger is not only a creative visionary but a “Game Changer”!

Join host Jacqueline Jax as she gets up close and personal with Seattle based architect and furniture designer, Milan Heger. Before the 2009 economic recession, Milan Heger was thriving in business and creativity. As the housing market crashed, he found himself among the millions of people waking up at night worried about not only the future of his company but how he was going to provide for his family. In a statement released on September 7,2011 in Entrepreneur Magazine, Milan said, “The biggest pressure is the status of my mortgage and college payments. I felt not like a failure, but like a father who wasn’t doing what he was supposed to do. I’d sit in the car in the driveway and not want to get out. It’s hard and continues to be hard.”

Milan’s experience sheds light on the reality and challenges that every small business owner faces. That reality is that you have to brave great risk to obtain great rewards. Life challenges us at every corner but it’s the people who can pick themselves back up and continue on that defines the winners from the losers.
