Some Kind Of Stranger

Biography: “JacksonVegas” is the brainchild of songwriter Grant “Dr. Concussion” Nielsen. Dr. Con has been writing singer/songwriter content since he was a youth, behind the scenes of his other projects .In 2011, he decided to form “JacksonVegas” , whose name is derived from the “big-town/little-city” mentality of his hometown, Jacksonville, FL. Drawing from the sometimes schizophrenic cultural nature of the southern United States, he paints a bittersweet picture of the characters and events from his life.

The group is lead by Dr. Con and features an illustrious selection of soulful players, including Cyrus Quaranta on keys and backing vocals, Adam Silk on bass and Bea Gayle on drums.

The flagship single “Some Kind of Stranger” focuses on the debate between the teaching of Evolution and Intelligent Design in the Florida public school system, a controversy so divisive that it promises to challenge cultures world wide for decades to come.

Adam Ant Releases First Album In 17 Years

“The last truly magnificent pop star that Britain ever produced”- Esquire

“Wild nobility returns to power” – USA Today

 

POP ICON ADAM ANT RELEASES HIS FIRST ALBUM IN 17 YEARS, A MUSICAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY

CALLED “ADAM ANT IS THE BLUEBLACK HUSSAR IN MARRYING THE GUNNER’S DAUGHTER”

Why did Adam buy a house and live in Tennessee?  His first single explains.

 

(LONDON) January 20, 2013 – After his recent sold-out USA and UK tours, legendary pop icon Adam Ant is releasing “Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter”, his first album in 17 years, on January 22, 2013. The album, a type of musical autobiography, is a collection of 17 songs about things that have happened in his life and things that interest him with collaborations from longtime songwriting partner Marco Pirroni and Boz Boorer (Morrissey).

Many people know that Adam, a GRAMMY-nominated artist and one of the most recognized faces of the 80s known for his global hits including “Goody Two Shoes”, “Stand and Deliver”, “Strip” and “Wonderful”, lived in Los Angeles for several years while pursuing film roles.  But most people never knew that later in life he quietly bought a house and lived in the small town of Dayton, Tennessee.  With its swampy, southern flavor, “Cool Zombie”, the debut single, speaks to this aspect of his life.

“I lived in Tennessee for a couple of years,” Adam explained.  “My daughter, Lily Caitlin, was born there. I decided that I was going to be like a house husband, so I was with her and changing nappies. That’s the hardest work I’ve ever done, the child-rearing thing.  But as Lily got older, I started to think about music.  I missed it – the creative process and the live side of it.”

The video for “Cool Zombie”, produced and directed by Adam Ant and Adam Ross, was filmed in one day at Hoxton Hall, a Victorian music hall in Shoreditch, East London.  The concept is the story of Adam’s return to London after living in Tennessee.  Click here to see the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3myAmL-9870

 Additional tracks include Adam’s resurrected 80s song “Who’s a Goofy Bunny, Then?” (In tribute to his late, former manager Malcolm McLaren) and “Vince Taylor” (The European 50s/60s pop star who suffered from addiction).

The first part of the album’s enigmatic title also pays homage to Adam’s iconic “Kings of the Wild Frontier” persona who wore the trademark white stripe.  Although this persona never had a name, Adam now refers to the character as The Blueblack Hussar, a reference to the cavalry hussar units that originated during the 15th century throughout Europe.   Many units were known for their characteristic dress that included distinctive hats, elaborate braided jackets and, in some groups, pants with a yellow vertical stripe – three signature items that Adam adopts on stage.

The second part of the title, “Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter” is linked to an old naval term that refers to being punished.  Or, metaphorically speaking, his feelings about being signed to a major label for so many years.  Now, Adam has released this album on his own label, Blueblack Hussar Records.

The mysterious cover girl wearing the Nelson hat is Georgie Hobday, the subject of two oil paintings by BP portrait-prize recipient Mary Jane Ansell.  Georgie also appears in the video for “Cool Zombie”.

“Adam Ant is The Blueblack Hussar in Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter” is available through leading retailers including Best Buy and Walmart and online outlets including iTunes and Amazon.  A special vinyl version, with a double vinyl sleeve gatefold, will also be released on February 4, 2013.

 Adam and his band, “The Good, The Mad & The Lovely Posse”, are preparing for an upcoming UK tour in the Spring, 2013, and currently working on a North American tour.

For more information, visit www.Adam-Ant.com.

In 1980, millions of UK viewers saw the Adam and the Ants perform ‘Dog Eat Dog’ on Top of the Pops.  The phenomenon began and they would dominate the charts for several years.  But this was no overnight success.  It had been the culmination of years of toil starting at Hornsey College of Art where Adam formed the band Bazooka Joe. With Adam on bass, they played around London and, in 1975, Adam’s life changed when he saw The Sex Pistols play their first-ever gig supporting Bazooka Joe at St. Martins College of Art.  He formed The Ants and in 1979 they released their debut album, ‘Dirk Wears White Søx’ that topped the independent chart.  In 1980, the Ants left Adam to work with former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren.

Adam put his new ‘warrior’ sound into practice and soon had a fresh band including two drummers.  They signed a major-label deal and recorded the album ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ that became a huge hit, spent 12 weeks at number one and won a ‘Best New Artist’ Brit Award.  Antmania swept the nation.  ‘Stand and Deliver’ hit the number-one spot for five weeks and earned Adam an Ivor Novello award.  ‘Prince Charming’ also hit number one and another 12 singles went Top 30.  At one point, Adam had eight singles in the top 40 in one week!  ‘Goody Two Shoes’ crowned both the UK and Australian charts.  In the USA, Adam earned a ‘Best New Artist’ GRAMMY nomination in 1982.

His first solo album, ‘Friend or Foe’, delivered three top-twenty hits on the USA Billboard Top 100 and in 1983 he appeared on the ‘Motown 25 Special’(NBC) alongside Michael Jackson who performed his moonwalk dance for the first time.  Adam’s second solo album, ‘Strip’, produced the top-five UK hit ‘Puss in Boots’, but the BBC banned the video and the song for the follow-up single ‘Strip’.  While recording his third solo album ’Vive Le Rock’ with producer Tony Visconti, Adam started an acting career by appearing in a theatre production.  In 1985 Adam performed ‘Vive Le Rock’ at Live Aid and the next few years were devoted to acting in films including Nomads, Love Bites and Slam Dance and TV shows such as The Equalizer, Tales from the Crypt and Sledge Hammer!

During the 1990s Adam, again, split his time between chasing film/TV roles while recording ‘Manners and Physique’ that included the hit ‘Room at the Top’.  The follow-up album, ‘Persuasion’, remains without an official release to this day, but in 1995 Adam released ‘Wonderful’ with its self-titled single and follow-up ‘Gotta Be A Sin’ that were accompanied with successful tours of the UK and the USA.  It would be twelve years before Adam would play live again, acoustically, in 2006, where he read extracts from his autobiography ‘Stand & Deliver’. The book laid bare Adam’s childhood and his well-documented mental-health battles.  In 2008, Adam received the ‘Q Music Icon Award’ alongside fellow recipients Paul McCartney and Bryan Ferry.

This rekindled recognition resulted in a series of gigs in 2010 and Adam formed a new band called Adam Ant and The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse.  After a successful tour of Australia and sold-out USA and UK tours, Adam released his new album, “Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner’s Daughter” in January, 2013.  The new album is a type of musical autobiography that features 17 musical stories about Adam’s life and things that interest him.

R’n’B Singer, Tambu-Christel, Steals the 2013 Spotlight with New Music

http://i974.photobucket.com/albums/ae227/Prforless/1Tambu-ChristelPembele2013ReleaseRevised1.jpgUnited Kingdom – Following her appearance on X-Factor in 2009, the world has kept a close eye on Tambu-christel. The highly-driven music star and entrepreneur has used her ‘failure is not an option’ approach to garner huge success in the entertainment and business worlds. With a busy twelve months ahead, the trend is long set to continue.

2013 will see Tambu-christel release a string of new music via her independent record label and continue to share her passion for family and personal development with all that will listen.

All of this forms part of a huge comeback for the twenty-five year old, who retreated from the public’s eye for two years while perusing  numerous business ventures and giving birth to her third child. However, as she explains, she wasn’t sat in silence.

“I had my baby in June of 2012 and things really started to kick off.  It surrounded my debut single, ‘Preach’, which was released in 2010. Suddenly, nominations for awards started flooding from all directions,” she says.

Continuing, “I found myself being nominated for Best Soul, R’n’B and Jazz in organisations such as the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.”

With demand for her music growing, Tambu-christel knew a comeback was being called for. After travelling the world to secure various business deals, she orchestrated a magnificent comeback during winter of last year. Celebrating the event with the release of various videos of recording sessions, she got the attention of former A&R scout Kevin Shine (who discovered R.Kelly) as well as Grammy winning songwriter Lashawn Daniels who wrote the number one hit “love and war” from singer Tamar Braxton.

Since that point the public have been calling for a new single release. Using the power of social media and building up a growing and dedicated band of followers, the singer is keeping them excitedly waiting as she finalises plans for her next big announcement.

“While I live my life in the spotlight, the values and tradition of family are still my biggest passions. I want to use my platform to educate others about the importance of valuing loved ones and being a good person,” she adds.

To do this, Tambu-Christel maintains a popular blog where she shares advice on marriage, family values and also keeps her fans abreast of her latest music and business news. The blog can be found at: www.TheMcCaghreys.com
