Sammy Hagar & The Circle – Trust Fund Baby

 

 

 

 

 

Sammy Hagar & The Circle impress with the release of a fascinating video for their song entitled ‘Trust Fund Baby’ directed by ZZ Satriani.

 

‘Trust Fund Baby’ tells what happens when parents provide too much cash to children, too early in life, and it turns into misery.

 

“All the money in the world isn’t a guarantee for a good life.  I’m a believer in working hard and finding purposeful work – but that comes later in the story,” Hagar explains.

 

ZZ Satriani, said of the process, “We were lucky because Sammy’s writing style let us create the story quite literally from the lyrics.”

 

Sammy Hagar & The Circle release their debut collection of original work ‘Space Between’ on May 10th through BMG.

 

Founded in 2014, Sammy Hagar & The Circle are the acclaimed crew featuring Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson.

 

They have rapidly proved themselves as one of the most exciting live acts around, seamlessly ripping through career-spanning hits from Montrose, Van Halen, Sammy Hagar, and The Waboritas and Led Zeppelin.

 

On Space Between, the band harnesses the intensity of their musical experiences and seminal collaborative sound with Hagar’s creative writing to produce a collection of songs that builds – song after song – around the concepts of money, greed, enlightenment, and truth.

 

Ranging from intimate and thoughtful eye-openers to heart pumping anthems; ‘Space Between’ draws on the band’s substantial careers, both independently and collaboratively, to present a group of musicians at the peak of their game.

UK folk singer turned pop songstress, Bianca Bazin is a new pop force and has been featured on BBC Introducing the South and Eagle Radio with further support for Bianca on publications like Vents Mag, Music Musings And Such, Purple Melon Magazine, Impose Magazine, The Most Radicalist, and On Record Magazine.

 

The music video for her single ‘Poor Thing’ was premiered on When The Horn Blows and is featured on the popular Spotify Playlist, Pop Trending which boasts almost 50 000 followers.

 

She has performed at numerous events across London, most noteworthy at the Mateus Tent at The Big Feastival (2018) which also saw performers Tom Odell, Craig David, and Paloma Faith.

 

Having attended dance school since the age of 4, the Guildford born (and currently based) Bianca Bazin grew up in a household filled with the arts.

 

At only 6 years old, she started playing the piano, furthering her love for music and dance.

 

As a teenager, she attended the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts after which she began songwriting at London Music School in 2014.

 

A graduate of BA (Hons) Joint Honours in Economics and Spanish from Durham University, this multi-talented musician taught herself how to play the guitar and the ukulele.

 

Initially, Bianca Bazin performed folk music at several intimate events across the UK. She has since decided to move into the pop industry, stating, “due to the desire to explore new sounds and ideas, I wanted to make music which would be more uplifting.”

 

Writing all of her own music, her songwriting is autobiographical in nature.

 

Influenced by a wide array of acts such as Lana Del Rey, Lady Gaga, Carole King and Mumford & Sons, her music would be an easy fit for any fans of Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha, Halsey, Jessie Ware, and Rita Ora.

.

.

.

 

Explain how to overcome writer’s block.

To overcome writer’s block I stop trying to write and I go out and get some experiences and influences for a song. You can’t force it and I like to write songs which are autobiographical in nature. If I have the experience and I’m not sure how to express it then I wait. The expression will come.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the tricks behind making a hit song.

The best songs are ones with powerful hook lines, something simple and memorable. Imagine you are writing a nursery rhyme for adults.

.

.

.

Tell us how you get feedback for your demo before working on it.

I send it to family and friends and see what they think. However, I usually ignore it and carry on doing what I want and making the music I love regardless.

.

.

.

 

Explain your recording experience in the studio.

I have had a mixture of experiences in different studios. The first time I recorded I wanted all live instruments so there was a lot of time taken up with setting things up and getting the perfect take. Since then, I have moved into a lot of electronic instruments and I love the flexibility it gives you, and ability to build up the sound.

.

.

.

Tell us how you compose.

I sit at my keyboard and find a sequence of chords that sound good. I then let the words start flowing. I always leave the bridge till last as I tend to find that the hardest bit to write but overall I usually have a full song written in less than half an hour. If I decide to record it I will then spend some time making tweaks and fine tuning the lyrics.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you add effects to your vocals to sound better.

I only add reverb to my voice just to give it the usual effect of space, but apart from that, it’s all natural baby.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the best streaming platform to get new fans.

I find YouTube to be the most influential for picking up new fans as it gives people a visual at the same time and a face behind a voice and a name.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on music education.

I started learning the piano and having singing lessons from a very young age and after I graduated from university I took myself to London Music School. I have found the formal learning to be useful to this day, however not essential. Anyone with a passion and love for music can learn to do anything they set their hearts to.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the shooting of a commercial music video for a song.

I love shooting music videos and coming up with a quirky concept. Ideas come in many forms, sometimes lucid dreams, comments on the lyrical content of the song or things people have said to me.

 

I love the freedom of doing what I want, dressing how I want and behaving in a way that isn’t ‘socially acceptable’ in everyday terms. I hand over the idea to my videographers who then put it into a full plan. We spend a day shooting the different scenes of the video and then it goes off for editing. It’s usually a fairly quick process and I have my video a couple of weeks later having made many edits.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you relate with other artists.

The songwriting and being an artist is a very individual experience and expression. I relate to other artists in so much as I love music and it’s my best way of expressing myself and sharing something with the world.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you can collaborate with an artist of a different genre.

Definitely, I believe collaborating across genres is a great way to come up with new unique sounding music and having a direct influence on what you do. It pushes your boundaries.

.

.

.

 

Explain how to finance a music project.

With difficulty – Music is an expensive business and everyone I know has separate day jobs or businesses and some use crowdfunding.

 

You have to learn to be strategic in where to spend your money and what is going to have the biggest impact.

 

It is easy to go to a studio and spend thousands of pounds on a song but it won’t necessarily make it a great song.

 

You need to work with a producer who you have a great vibe with.

 

Equally, you can spend thousands on a PR campaign but if it isn’t translating into fans then you’d be best spending your money elsewhere.

 

Ultimately there’s always an element of trial and error but with the rise of online and streaming you need to be prepared to record great sounding music and with it have the visuals, branding, and marketing to go behind it.

.

.

.

 

Explain how to copyright a musical work.

There are a few ways but my favourite is recording a song and then posting it to myself. The postage stamp will date it and as long as you leave the envelope closed that song is now copyrighted.

 

Alternatively, most modern recording devices will time and date stamp any recording you do which should be sufficient should you ever need to prove you own a song.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to generate income from a musical work.

Most people no longer buy music, they stream online, therefore, the main way for artists to generate income is through bookings for live shows and selling merchandise. Sync placements, such as getting a song placed in films, adverts or on TV can also be a great way to make money.

.

.

.

List the name of organizations you know can be helpful to new artists.

AWAL has some great information out there and I have also found Sentric, Music Gateway and Reverbnation to be great.

.

.

.

 

Send a message to your fans.

You rock, each and every one of you, just by being you.

.

.

.

 

Explain the process involved in recording a vocal.

Obviously, you have to start by warming up and getting the levels on the mic right.

 

I group similar sections of the song together for recording to help with consistency across the song, so I usually start by recording the verses, then the pre-choruses, the bridge and then finally the chorus. By this point, I’ve got super comfortable with how I’m performing and so will probably go back and do the verses again.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

‘White Water’ was written about a tough time in my life where I felt very alone and like the world was crashing in around me, however, it was also my equivalent of a fight song; that I wasn’t prepared to give up no matter how hard things got.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

Just my name! It’s unique and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Discuss your music process and recording in full details.

My songs usually come to me as simple melodies at any given moment.

 

It’s always when I’m doing something non-musical that they seem to appear out of thin air.

 

So it’s mostly music first then words, but I have been trying to write lyrics without any thought for music, so it helps with the creative process.

 

When it comes to recording I love having at least one instrument being played while I do a vocal, so most of the time I’m playing guitar and doing the vocal at the same time onto separate tracks. From there it is building the song with each track.

 

Most of the time; I do not have a clear picture in my head as to how it should sound, so I experiment with the different tracks, play them back to see how it sounds.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you get involved in music. 

I started out playing guitar at about the age of 13. I had done some singing before that, usually to The Beach Boys’ records, picking out harmonies.

 

It all evolved into coming up with my own tunes once I learned how to play and sing at the same time. It just felt like a natural way to express myself.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the secret to success.

We all have this different idea of what success is. Is it money? I don’t believe so; I mean if you are doing music strictly for the money, there are plenty of other ways to earn a lot in a short amount of time for less effort.

 

Success to me is having an idea, executing it and finishing it -Doesn’t matter how big or small.

 

When I finish writing a song, to me that’s this tiny little bit of success I can add to the roster in my life.

 

Finishing an albums worth of songs, a little bigger bit of success – Just stay focused, don’t get distracted and be disciplined and you’ll be successful.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you distribute your music. 

Right now I have my music available for download directly through my website and through CD Baby, which they of course distribute through several streaming services, such as iTunes/Amazon/Spotify/etc.

.

.

.

 

Describe your vocal ability.

There are times I feel like a million bucks and other times I want to say, shut that song off already. I feel I can convey the feeling of the song I am singing and that’s all that matters.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you develop the instrumentation for this song.

It started out many years ago as a simple guitar/vocal folk song and nothing else…pretty naked, but I decided to add a different rhythm altogether. Implementing percussion, synth and harmonies to song, but not too much – I did not want it to sound overproduced or too busy.

.

.

.

 

Go into detail on how you create your song.

Well first I sit and hone the lyrics to the best possible feel to the music as possible.

 

Some words don’t always have the best cadence to the melody, so that’s what I try to fix first.

 

Then I run through the chord progression and try different approaches, to see how it blends with the melody. I would 80% of the time; the 1st mental sound that I had for a song is basically how it ends up.

 

With the ones that I keep – So I usually just have this gut feeling about the melody that makes me feel good, so I stick with it.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your musical ability. 

I’m a bad judge about my own abilities. I look at all the musicians out there and I get jealous.

 

I feel that I’m talented enough to be dangerous. I think there’s articulation in playing and then there’s feeling.

 

I think I’m pretty good at the feeling part of it and somewhat fair at the articulation.

 

I will let my listeners decide what they like and don’t like.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the lyrics of the song.

This song, as I remember was written in late winter, as the song’s lyrics begin.

 

I was struggling with the length of the season and yearning for spring…the green of life. So that’s the primary theme of the song, but buried in there are similarities that occur in relationships. Wanting to help those you love, hoping their particular “season” they are going through can also change and that you are always there for them to lean on and confide in.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the structure of the song.

It is pretty basic 1st verse, 2nd verse then refrain, but I consider the refrain more of a “bridge” element to the song.

 

The title lies at the end of the refrain, like, “here is the last thing I need to say before I leave you…” So I view it as a Bob Dylan or Gordon Lightfoot type folk song structure.

.

.

.

Discuss your performance.

Performance for this song was vocal and guitar, played at the same time I’m recording – The only way for me to feel and convey the words are to play at the same time.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you prepare for a show or recording session.

I’m a very spontaneous musician/singer. I have practiced the song over and over until it’s time to record, and then sometimes after the 1st take, I change everything.

 

Because listening to something played back to you is different than just playing for somebody.

 

I experiment with sounds regularly. I use anything for a percussive device. I try different amplifiers on the guitars, I add harmonies in areas that I never thought of until I start recording.

 

I think the songs undergo a metamorphosis when you decide to record it. It naturally becomes a little something extra than what you anticipated.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you coordinate other musicians or how you relate with your producer in bringing the best out of your song.  

Well for this album, I did it all, so I only argued with myself. It’s difficult doing these things by oneself.

 

You need other ears that can help relate your story. I definitely will be utilizing other musicians on my next project. It is healthy to have the extra input.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you entice the listeners with your music.

I really try to keep elements of my songs real; I’m not trying to sell plastic bananas and apples to my listeners.

 

I know that the thoughts I’ve implemented into my music are relatable to everyone on the planet.

 

Sooner or later, the lyrics sink in and the song means a little more than just a catchy melody and cute words.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you promote your music.

Well I’m kind of newbie at promoting. It’s been awhile since my last project and so much has changed.

 

I focus on getting industry feedback via reviews/blogs to aid in complementing my music so that the public not only hears it, in as many streaming venues as possible, but will see the reviews and comments, establishing it as something worth having.

 

It’s really the hardest part of this gig and it takes so much time… I’m dying to get back to recording some new material.

.

.

.

Tell us how you ensure your vocal is in harmony with the instrumentation. 

I don’t even think about it. I feel it just comes naturally. I never use auto tune nor would I think about it. It’s not in the cards.

 

I’ll do 50 takes on a vocal harmony before I use a machine to fake it.

 

I want everything to sound as natural and organic as I can. Sometimes, that isn’t complete perfection.

 

There’s always a little something here or there in the song that isn’t maybe “the best”, but again, I’m not selling plastic fruit, something seemingly real, yet indigestible.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you build your vocal melody.

To be honest I get a pretty good vibe about how it should be and leave it alone. If I’m dissatisfied with it after a few times of playing it, I will tweak it to see if it flows better. If the melody sounds somewhat familiar to the ears, yet new (not a carbon copy) then I roll with it.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

The song is about hanging in there for others and having a solid relationship with those who need comfort, as well as helping each other cope through their difficulties.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

Karl Sky is technically my real name except that I shortened my last name due to its length!

 

The title of the album is “Stranger To This Place”, there is a title track of the same name and it embodies the idea of how, as a people, we can be in completely familiar surroundings, day after day, yet feel isolated as the person we really are or who we want to be.

 

I think there are minor themes in all the other songs on the album that touch on that subject and that is why I chose it as the title.

.

.

.

 

Share your press release and review with us.        

Singer/Songwriter Karl Sky has been penning melodic, catchy Folk Rock/Alternative songs for several years. Karl’s latest album “Stranger To This Place” is now available for purchase – A collection of 10 poignant/introspective songs that touch so much on the human condition.

 

In 2000 Mr. Sky formed a beneficial relationship with Nashville producer Scotty Turner (Songwriter/Lead guitarist for Tommy Sands & The Raiders/Executive Producer of Liberty/Imperial Records – Writer/Producer for A&M Records).

 

Mr. Turners’ songs were recorded by such greats as Roy Clark, Slim Whitman, Nilsson, Mac Davis, to name a few.

 

That mentorship Scotty provided, enabled Karl to become a better writer both lyrically and musically.

 

Captain Kidd Music/BMI; owned by Scotty Turner, signed Mr. Sky’s “Warm Kentucky Wind” as well as Karl’s 1st collection/album of music, “Guess It’s Time” back in 2000.

 

Karl has had several positive reviews, past and present, which are all included at his website.

 

Karl’s music resembles the styles of early singer/songwriters in the 70’s such as James Taylor, Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Elton John, and John Denver.

 

On his latest album Karl is releasing entitled, “Stranger To This Place” – Many tracks will be slated for release as singles, beginning with “Free” and other notables would include, “I’m Always Here You Know”, “Tired Of The Sun”, “Life Will Begin” and the title track “Stranger To This Place.”

 

The album will soon be released on all major streaming platforms soon!

 

KARL SKY REVIEWS:

Indie Spoonful has this to say about Karl…

“Karl pens thoughtful and intelligent lyrics, painting emotion and story, in a poetic manner.”

 

“I’m Always Here You Know” captures the fragility of our human experience and our need for connection with great tenderness and sophistication, both lyrically and musically.”

 

Indie Spoonful

 

Please Pass The Indie says…

“There’s a certain Americana-Rock feel reminiscent of Springsteen and Morrison that fans of folk-rock will love. Like Springsteen, Sky’s story-telling is very down-to-earth; he paints everyday people with every day struggles. In Sky’s lyrics, you will find heartfelt slices of life that explore the complexities of relationships; he keeps it real and honest.”

 

“Free is well-crafted through and through.”

 

“Singer-Songwriter Karl Sky writes songs that stand the test of time.”

 

Please Pass The Indie

 

Muse’s Muse stated on Karl’s earlier releases…

“This is a songwriter first and foremost. Karl likes the sound of the guitar and keeps trying to think of other ways of making the strings sings. Focusing on the acoustic, kneading in the folk, writing like a pop star, Karl brings all the components together like a well-oiled demo screaming for attention. He’ll get it. Sky is headed for that horizon.”

 

The Muse’s Muse

 

Mike Aydelott – Music Reviewer had this to say about Sky,

“Well realized songs from a seasoned and skilled songwriter.”

Artist/producer Matthew James Hemmer blends fresh electronic production, intense vocal distortion, dedicated lyricism, and pop sensibility with hip-hop/R&B influences.

 

Inspired by other electropop/indie acts like Jeremy Zucker, Blackbear, and EDEN, he made his debut in June 2018 with the release of his first album, “Break Me Down.”

 

After several singles, May of 2019 brought a second album, “Broke My Phone”, and Matthew continues to cross genres and experiment, quickly establishing a signature sound that brings a wide range of unpredictable elements together seamlessly…

.

.

.

Tell us your history

I started out as a classically trained violist/pianist, but after years of instruction, I decided to move away towards more contemporary production/study.

 

I then began making tracks on Logic Pro, and after being accepted at Berklee College of Music, I started really grinding to perfect my craft.

 

After about a year of study, I locked down my signature style of bass-heavy electropop.

 

I’ve been collaborating with many other artists and am in the process of promoting my second album currently.

.

.

.

Describe yourself as an artist.

My songwriting and production focus heavily on prosody. I like to make sure the lyrical elements are being backed up by the production and vice versa.

 

Since I produce, mix and master all my own music, I have many opportunities when writing the song to ensure the piece is working together thematically and as a whole.

 

My songs are also inspired by psychedelic influence, so I like to add glitches/unexpected vocal modulations/harmonic dissonance to keep listeners guessing.

.

.

.

Tell us the genre of your music.

My music combines a lot of different genres. I’m a huge hip-hop head, so a lot of my lyricism has nods to rap lyricists like Eminem and J. Cole.

 

I like fast-paced lyrical lines, but since I’m also a singer, I normally write to high range moving melodies for my voice to follow.

 

Some tracks have me branch out into more R&B/pop singing/crooning, and much of my production takes inspiration from experimental electronic producers like Sophie and EDEN.

 

So my stuff is basically fast flowing pop lines over trappy electronic beats.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the story behind your song.

“Broke My Phone” is a journey of growth. The start of the album represents a chaotic excessive lifestyle, full of stress and trauma.

 

Throughout the album, the focus shifts from toxicity to moving on and maturing.

 

By the end of the project, the narrator is ready to start a new phase of life.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the problems you are facing as an artist.

My biggest issues these days come from promotion. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on my sound, and now I just want people to hear it. I plan on pushing my original music as my sole goal for the next few years.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the recording and production of the song.

I like to lay all my vocals down on an AKG 214, and then comp my vocals in Logic. I recorded, mixed, and mastered in my home studio.

.

.

.

List the names of blogs, radio or television stations that have supported you so far.

Only a few local blogs and YouTube channels have supported, like @bens_bops, and the YouTube channels Sea Pride, Gang Society, BangersOnly, Eternality, and Bass Boost Nation. Plus, of course, Broadtube Music Network!

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music career, experience, and future goals.

I’ve played a few shows at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club, and the Red Room @cafe939 Boston, and plan to play more this summer. I’m currently working on my upcoming EP, and then the album that will follow it.

.

.

.

Brief us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

Life inspires me. It’s full of songs, which I still find amazing. No matter how many songs have been written about a classic topic, there’s always a way for an innovative creative songwriter to flip it in a new way. I love being the person to flip those topics and write a new fresh love song, or a hate song, or a sad banger anthem.

.

.

.

 

Brief us the top-secret behind making a hit song.

Hooks: Keep as many melodic hooks as possible – people need to remember the song or it’ll never be a hit.

.

.

.

Tell the piece of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Remember to think about what kind of audience you want to attract, and keep a solid brand, but never stop making music that you’re proud of.

.

.

.

Discuss at length your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have received.

I’ve dropped two albums, and I’ve been a two-time finalist in the Bernard Ebb Songwriters Competition in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area.

 

I’m currently enrolled at the Berklee College of Music and have over two million total views/streams across my various artist platforms.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

Normally, when I’m starting a new track, unless I’m working off a lyric idea or melody that’s come to me, I’ll start with chords and the beat. I then often write lyrics and melody while completing the track. After a few days of planning the arrangement and vocal layering, I’ll record all the parts, and then spend another couple of weeks mixing and mastering.

.

.

.

Name your favourite artists for collaboration.

My main two inspirations are EDEN and Blackbear, so it would be a dream to work with either of them. I also feel like it could be amazing to get in a room with Juice Wrld or Brendon Urie and just write – they seem like incredible creatives.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

First I’d update all my gear, set myself up with some land so I don’t have to worry about rent, set aside some food money, and give what I can to environmental charities.

.

.

.

Discuss music promotion and how you are boosting your fan base.

I’m mostly relying on playlist campaigns and word of mouth to get the word out. People telling people have been great so far, and I’m hoping for more.

.

.

.

Tell us how you manage other activities with your music career.

I compartmentalize. Currently, I manage all of my own songwriting and production; on top of that, I’m in charge of promotion, marketing, management, and branding. Not even counting social life and schoolwork, it can get incredibly draining.

 

To manage, I like to split up the work in sections of the day, where another persona will take over and specialize. That way I can get everything done that I need to without getting overwhelmed.

.

.

.

 

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

Matthew James Hemmer is my full legal name, and also my artist name. I’ve played around with the idea of “mayhem” as a producer name and artist name, but decided against it.

 

My persona is that “Matthew James Hemmer” is an entity that exists in the songs and universes that I create.

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

“Broke My Phone” the name of the titular track off the album, takes inspiration from a couple of things.

 

One of the meanings comes from how people sometimes use breaking their phone as an excuse to not talk to others, another meaning is in how a broken phone can result in being cut-off from social interaction, but can also help you be more interactive face to face (without the distraction).

 

My phone actually broke on release night, and is still not replaced yet – it’s been a pain. But I guess it must be a sign or just bad luck.
