September 6 : ACE FREHLEY Guests On New KEN SHARP Album
From : Ken Sharp
KEN SHARP : Beauty In The Backseat (2018)Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley makes a guest appearance on "Beauty In The Backseat", the new album from singer-songwriter and author Ken Sharp. The disc sheds the dark, musical blood on the tracks vibe of Ken's previous release, "New Mourning", and draws deep from his Philly roots, delivering a fresh blast of infectious soul-pop and power pop. Produced by Fernando Perdomo (TODD RUNDGREN, JAKOB DYLAN, BECK) and Sharp, the record showcases mighty musical contributions from Frehley (guitar solo on "Rock Show") and another Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame legend John Oates ("Philly Kind of Night") along with UTOPIA's Kasim Sulton ("Mona Lisa Smile").

The 16-track album traverses a wide musical terrain and a myriad of lyrical themes. "Rock Show" delivers the intoxicating joy of getting your band on the concert stage; "Pull The Strings" is a quirky story of an adult in his mid-40s who can’t survive without his ventriloquist dummy by his side ("Pull The Strings"), the death of David Bowie is explored on "The Day That David Bowie Died"; "Sinking" chronicles the transformative power of loss while "Listen To Me" is a plea for unity in a world torn apart by social and political tumult and divisiveness.

"Being a Philly boy with my ear permanently glued to the radio dial, the sound of Philadelphia etched its indelible mark on my musical DNA," says Sharp. "Being able to work in the studio with John Oates, someone whose music was the soundtrack of my youth, was a supersonic blessing of brotherly love! Another full-circle moment for me, being a huge fan of KISS since I was a kid, I was thrilled that Ace Frehley laid down a solo on the opening track, titled, appropriately enough, 'Rock Show'."

"Beauty In The Backseat" is Sharp's fifth album. He is a seasoned live performer who’s recently landed high profile gigs opening for John Waite, David Cassidy and THE BABYS and headlined The Troubadour in Hollywood, California.

September 1 : Marksman Lloyd drops ‘Gene Simmons’ music video
From :
Marksman Lloyd - Gene Simmons single 2017 / 2018Rising Perth (Australia) rapper Marksman Lloyd just released his highly anticipated music video to infectious single "Gene Simmons".

Directed by Angelo Dicarlo at one of his favorite local coffee spots, 16 Ounces, the clip is a date turned dance party starring model and activist Angeline Faith.

“Gene Simmons was the first ‘happy love song’ I’ve probably ever written, so I wanted to make a clip that had that playful, nonchalant nature,” says Lloyd.

“I’m awkward as hell in real life so why not just show that in the clip and have some fun with it.”

Released from last years EP Portals, the single highlights his unique flow, melodic progression and refreshing charisma.

Lyrically, "Gene Simmons" is an affirmation of love and the ridiculousness of the whole dance. The song originally came to Marksman in a dream (a self-confessed rare occurrence) while he was traveling throughout South East Asia and nailed it in the studio as soon as he returned."
