Donna Greenberg, the Toronto-based singer, songwriter, and lyricist, is celebrating the release of STUCK ON YOU, her fifth CD since 2009 and her first all-jazz album. Featured are nine songs that follow the winding path to and from love, by turns sorrowful, joyful, and ironic.
Arranged for jazz trio by pianist/arranger extraordinaire Mark Kieswetter, these pieces are performed by Mark himself on piano, Jordan O’Connor on bass, and Ben Riley on drums.
Four of the songs are debuts: the sassy and flirtatious "Don't Try to Change My Mind," the sultry bossa nova "Meu Amor" sung in Brazilian Portuguese, the optimistic jazz waltz "There Will Always Be Spring." and torchy "Go Your Way," inspired by the Elena Ferrante story.
The other five songs are new renditions of earlier work: "You're My Summer Peach," "Why Can't I Say Good-bye?," "Dance the Night Away," "I Kiss Your Open Mouth," and "Reflections."
Donna Greenberg is a unique and stylistically versatile vocalist with a deep love of music. Her vocal precision, warmth, musicality, and dramatic flair are always evident in her heartfelt performance. She studied voice at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto, and has performed in both classical and jazz styles.
Classical jazz that will keep you listening. Hear Donna on her website.
If you passed her on the street, you would think you had just brushed by a young, tranquil girl with a cute smile. You'd probably never guess that you'd just narrowly avoided a category-five cyclone. Yet this creative whirlwind with an unassuming demeanor and smile has already generated an astounding number of hit songs for prominent music stars such as Britney Spears, Rihanna, Ciara and Enrique Iglesias. Some of her recent credits include 'Sorry to Interrupt by Jessie J and 'Lightweight' by Demi Lovato. Frankie Storm, who's been singing since she was three years old, has built an extensive resume of songwriting credits, one that would content even the most ambitious songwriter. But it appears that was all just a warm up for the main act. With her debut radio single 'The Cure' climbing the charts, there is indeed reason for trepidation about the storm that is approaching. 'The Cure' is only the first taste from her appropriately-titled album 'The Storm' so fans should wisely batten down the hatches and brace for the deluge of success that will undoubtedly follow.- Blake Wright (Marquix TV)
You might pass her by on the street but don't pass by her music. A wonderful voice that charms the soul. Listen to Frankie on her YouTube Channel.
Complex and brilliantly engineered, the latest album from rock veteran Wayne Olivieri titled "Eclectic Mind" has a unique musical profile. Its structure is reflective of its complex content, songs that delve deep into the psyche of human emotion, touching on everything from God, hard times, happiness, and other topics. Designed to evoke emotion, be it positive or negative, "Eclectic Mind" is an exercise in understanding what it is to truly feel.
This is by far Olivieri's strongest presentation to date, and brilliantly marks his evolution as a songwriter and individual. Each song is crafted with care, and every line written with the intent of relating to the listener on a personal level. The music's rich sound is reminiscent of classic blues and rock, and its complex sound highlights the rigors that every human deals with at some point during their existence.
A fully-fleshed 13-track LP, "Eclectic Mind" with track names ranging from "I'm Broke Again" to "I'm in Love Again", and even one titled "Mom", gives the listener an idea of what it means to relate to the songwriter. Olivieri seems to bring a rich inner life and the ability to craft positive vibes, even during the dark times which is rare in today’s music industry. Reminiscent of all of the greats from the 70's and 80's and chock full of inspiration, "Eclectic Mind" is the must have for anybody that has ever felt deeply, and appreciates the organic nature of pure rock music.
Olivieri is classic rock from the 60's and early 70's with a sound that evokes "Cream" or "Blue Oyster Cult"; hear him on his YouTube Channel.
Austria may be known as the classical music center of the world, but make no mistake - Cornerstone is here to rock! The band, composed of Alina Peter (Vocals, Guitars), Michael Wachelhofer (Bass, Keyboard, Vocals), Steve Wachelhofer (Guitar, Vocals) and Christoph Karas (Drums, Percussion), got signed by the US-based label ATOM Records back in 2008 and have done numerous tours through Europe and America. Cornerstone was able to do a mixture of headlining club shows and shared larger stages with acts such as The Animals, John Waite (Bad English, The Babys), New Model Army, and American singer/songwriter Jeffrey Gaines, to name a few. Cornerstone won the "Next Big Thing Contest", hosted by Alternative Addiction, in March 2008. The press has been extremely favourable to the band's blend of 80's rock, mixed with the harder edge of today's alternative rock sounds. After the release of the debut album "Head Over Heels" in fall 2008, reviews and interviews with the band were published in magazines like Powerplay, Fireworks and Classic Rock Magazine. Some of their songs were included in the motion-picture soundtrack for the film "Little Alien", which was shown in cinema back in fall 2009 and on television.
The band was signed by the US- label ATOM Records and is successfully representing Melodic-Rock: a US-tour, eight tours in the UK, a number of concerts at famous European festivals, airplay, TV-appearances on stations like BBC and much more. Additionally, they took part in the soundtrack of the film Little Alien, and in the beginning of 2012 their song "Right or Wrong" was awarded by the British ROCK REALMS Magazine as "Ballad of the Year 2011". In 2013 the band released their version of the eighties-hit "Smalltown Boy" (by Bronski Beat), that appeared in the charts. All of the revenues from this success were donated to the "Room to Breathe"-campaign, and to the charity organization for the research and treatment of the immunodeficiency disease cystic fibrosis at the Nottingham City Hospital.
Generous with their money and their talent. This band out of Austria is crafting new music that fits with today's sound. Listen to their amazing blend of horns and harmony on their YouTube Channel.

Robert Cook Sier
Robert Cook Sier is an independent composer, arranger, musician and producer, born in the UK but has lived in Australia for most of his life. Robert's passion is instrumental music - not jazz, not classical, new age or "symphonies", just modern instrumental music that people find enjoyable to listen to and that explores the rich rhythmic and sonic diversity available to us today. "Songs Without Words" describes it well.
Robert started playing piano at five, guitar at ten, in pub bands at fifteen and orchestrating at twenty. This road took him from the classics through art rock, jazz rock and the influences of our modern cinematic composers. Earlier in his career Robert worked with many international music celebrities and was signed to Warner Bros with his nine piece instrumental fusion band, the Electric Chamber Orchestra.
Jazz that feels so right. Listen and see if you agree on Robert's YouTube Channel.
