Several artists are joining Spotify and MerchFriends to promote the first-ever “Band Shirt Day”.

Band Shirt Day will take place on September 16 to celebrate the iconic “band t-shirt” for charitable causes. The first Band Shirt Day will bring artists together to sell merchandise on their official channels and donate proceeds to charities of their choice. The new initiative is similar to the existing Record Store Day or Music T-Shirt Day in Australia.

Band Shirt Day invites artists to create and sell unique, limited-edition items while encouraging artists to use their platform for change. Artists can participate by listing their specially crafted merchandise on their Spotify artist profile and collecting donations using the fan support tool, via HelloMerch.com or existing sales channels, with proceeds going directly to the charity of their choice.

Some of the confirmed participating artists for the first Band Shirt Day include Blondie, Mac DeMarco, Tori Amos, Sargent House, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, The Maine, Tragically Hip, The Format, Urge Overkill, Flipper, Monophonics, The Estate of Jóhann Jóhannsson and more. This year’s winners include Planned Parenthood, Children of Ukraine, The Ally Coalition, MusicCares, ACLU, TransLifeline, and more.

Artists who wish to participate in Band Shirt Day can find more information here.

“Indie music has a long history of sustainability through its focus on community; fundraising, street teams and guerrilla marketing. MerchFriends, through Band Shirt Day, brings communities together to help solve the problems we face every day,” said Friends of Merch and co-founder of Hello Merch, Sam Means.

“Spotify is proud to partner with MerchFriends for the first-ever Band Shirt Day,” adds Healter Ellis, Product Marketing Manager for Spotify for Artists. “By combining our merchandise roster and fan support tools, participating artists have the opportunity to sell merchandise and raise money for a cause they care about directly on their Spotify artist profile. Band Shirt Day is a celebration of merch, fandom, and the collective power of artists for good, and we’re thrilled to support this initiative.

Chrissy Metz thinks the music and acting are “so similar”.

The 41-year-old actress takes her musical talents on tour, and Chrissy thinks there are actually a lot of similarities between singing and acting.

Chrissy – who played Kate Pearson in ‘This Is Us’ – shared: “I love to act and tell stories and relate to the characters and then help others relate to them, but music and acting are so similar. Playing is really a song with no real instrumentation behind. A monologue is a song – it’s just a story we all tell.

Chrissy is best known for her acting skills, but she’s actually been working on her music for a long time.

She told PEOPLE: “Some people don’t know that I’ve been going back and forth in Nashville for, my God, five years now – since the second season of ‘This Is Us’.

“I met Jason Halpert – who was Kelly Clarkson’s musical director – and he was like, ‘I don’t know how to tell you this, but literally a voice is telling me to ask you about the music.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God…I want to sing country music.’ I had to write with amazing songwriters and I realized, “Oh, that’s what I want to do.

“I’m so happy in a writers room to collaborate with people I’ve never met before and four hours later to have a song that could completely change someone’s life.”

Chrissy also takes lessons from her acting work in her music.

She said, “Being able to develop my confidence and vulnerability in very deep ways throughout the show made me want to share my heart and soul in a very real way, instead of just doing it through a character.

“Music is really about feeling the healing and moving on to the other side.”

Eurovision Song Contest 2023: seven British cities named as potential hosts | Eurovision https://alabamabluegrass.org/eurovision-song-contest-2023-seven-british-cities-named-as-potential-hosts-eurovision/ Fri, 12 Aug 2022 10:37:00 +0000 https://alabamabluegrass.org/eurovision-song-contest-2023-seven-british-cities-named-as-potential-hosts-eurovision/ Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield have been named potential hosts for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 when it is held in the UK for the first time in 25 years.

Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield have been named potential hosts for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 when it is held in the UK for the first time in 25 years.

The seven candidate cities were announced by Scott Mills live on Zoë Ball’s Radio 2 breakfast show.

This year’s Eurovision was won in Turin by the Kalush Orchestra, representing Ukraine. This would normally mean that Ukraine would host 2023, which its government wanted, but in June the European Broadcasting Union announced that next year’s contest could not be held there due to the war.

Instead, the UK, which came second with Sam Ryder’s song space manwas invited to host the 67th Eurovision.

Twenty venues have bid to host the world’s largest and most complex music competition, watched this year by a global audience of 161 million.

Nicola Sturgeon, Scottish First Minister, tweeted: “It must be Glasgow!”

His sentiment was echoed by bookmakers, with William Hill makes City a 4/5 favorite odds.

Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said she was delighted. “Organizing such a unique event at such short notice is a challenge, but Glasgow has an unrivaled track record of successfully hosting major global events and we are confident we can present a Eurovision that reflects a true celebration. of Ukrainian culture.

Birmingham, which was the the UK’s last host city in 1998, when Dana International won, is the second favorite. Ian Ward, the leader of Birmingham City Council, expressed his delight. “It is a sanctuary city, a city that has welcomed people from all over the world and has called it home. We would be delighted to have the honor of hosting, on behalf of Ukraine, the Eurovision Song Contest of the song next year.

One of the underdogs, if bookmakers’ odds are to be believed, is Sheffield who promised to “throw the kitchen sink” to victory.

Ben Miskell, a Sheffield councilor helping lead his city’s bid, said: “Euphoria resonates in South Yorkshire. We are proud to raise the flag in solidarity with Ukraine and hope the EBU shines a light on Sheffield and makes our region their number 1.”

Steve Rotheram, the Metro Mayor of the City of Liverpool, said there was “nowhere more qualified, more experienced or more suitable” to host Eurovision than Liverpool.

“Liverpool wouldn’t be Liverpool without music – and music wouldn’t be music without Liverpool,” he said.

Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, tweeted: “Leeds & Leeds & Leeds & Leeds… we are ready.” She said: “It’s an amazing city, brimming with creativity and one that would shine if lucky enough to host this event.”

In Newcastle, the Councilman Alexander Hay said he was “absolutely thrilled” with the news. “I look forward to continuing to work with partners, hotels and organizations across the city to bring this bid together.”

Bev Craig, Leader of Manchester City Council, said his town was delighted. “Manchester are set to throw the UK’s biggest party in the city’s AO arena, taking our place in Eurovision’s unique history.”

Former hosts London, Brighton and Edinburgh were absent from the shortlist. Others that have failed include Aberdeen, Belfast, Bristol, Nottingham, Wolverhampton and Darlington, believed to be the only city to throw its hat in the ring.

The BBC said a final decision on the venue would be made in the fall.

He had put out tenders that met the criteria, including having a venue that could accommodate at least 10,000 people, being near an international airport and having enough hotels.

Cardiff had been a contender but pulled out as it would have meant canceling “a significant number” of other events next spring.

This is likely to be a problem for the city that will win the tournament due to the need to use the site for weeks of rehearsals before the semi-finals and the final.

Idris Elba wrote a poem to be featured on JAY-Z’s 2007 album American Gangster.

The Suicide Squad star appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about his new movie Beast when he recalled the recording process.

He also spoke about securing his spot on Paul McCartney’s 2021 album McCartney III Imagined.

“I’m on those two albums, and those two artists don’t know I’m on those albums,” the musician and actor revealed. “You know what I mean? I literally rocked my own on those albums.

Idris explained that he starred in the movie American Gangster, which JAY-Z drew inspiration from for his record.

“The moment I heard that Jay was about to do an album associated with the movie. And I was like, ‘I have to get on it.’ Like you do,” the England star said. “You’re like, ‘I’m Idris, I need to be on this JAY-Z album.’ I don’t know why Jay would be like, ‘Yeah sure, do it.'”

After meeting someone who worked with the rapper, Idris wrote a “long poem” which he set to the beat.

“Actually, it was a rap, but it didn’t sound good as a rap,” he corrected himself. “So I said, ‘Maybe I should speak like that’ because Jay might be a little more accommodating with my voice. And I sent it to him and we got this text from Jay saying, ‘Uh, I don’t like it… I love it.’ »

For McCartney’s 2021 album, Idris remixed the artist’s Long Tailed Winter Bird for release on the physical disc version.

In October 2021, Chris Brown, Drake and Drake producer Noah Shebib (aka “40”) were named in a copyright infringement lawsuit regarding 2019’s “No Guidance.” Now, 40 has officially been taken down of the complaint.

Musician plaintiffs in the case recently dismissed the lawsuit (with prejudice) against Toronto-born Noah Shebib, according to legal documents, after dropping Drake from the suit in April. 40 has produced each of Drake’s albums and is a songwriter as well as one of four producers on the mentioned “No Guidance”. (The track’s other three producers, Vinylz, J-Louis and Teddy Walton, are also charged.)

According to the firmly worded original complaint, “No Guidance” (which has racked up over 801 million Spotify streams) “is a forgery” of the plaintiffs. “I like your dress.” A singer-songwriter named Braindon Cooper (who releases music as Mr Cooper) and a drummer and producer named Timothy Valentine allegedly uploaded the allegedly infringing track to SoundCloud in July 2016 – also registering it with BMI at the time – before the song was officially copyrighted in August 2020.

Additionally, the action, in arguing that the plaintiffs’ song was copied, claimed that this track was debuted as part of an EP and performed live by Cooper prior to the release of “No Guidance.” .

“In early March 2019, an A&R rep called Mic Tee — associated with Cash Money Records and the AMAG collective, among others — contacted Cooper to discuss Cooper’s musical talents,” the original lawsuit reads. Mic Tee allegedly suggested that he and Cooper “should take a trip to Toronto” (Drake’s hometown) and then asked him to send “some unreleased music”.

Cooper didn’t forward any unreleased work, but provided a link to “I Love Your Dress,” according to the suit, eventually becoming “suspicious of the interaction upon hearing No guidance for the first time a few months later.

In addition to citing the opinions of musicologists (whose findings have been key elements of arguments in numerous other infringement cases), the plaintiffs have stated that the tracks are similar lyrically and in terms of their presentation” the distinctive click sound effect and a vocal effect whereby parts of the main vocal part appear to have been sped up.

The precise reasons for the partial dismissal of the case (against Shebib as against Drake) are not clear. When reached for comment, Cooper asked DMN “please direct all questions regarding the matter to my attorneys,” and 40 does not appear to have addressed the subject publicly. In any event, the action continues against the defendants, including Chris Brown and Sony Music.

Multiple infringement cases have received media attention over the past month – with 80s band Naked Eyes suing Reservoir Media, Epidemic Sound filing a lawsuit against Meta, and Megan Thee Stallion and Big Sean having been accused of an offense in “Go Crazy”.

A moving tribute to the late and much-loved Gunditjmara-Bundjalung singer Archie Roach was at the heart of the National Indigenous Music Awards in Darwin on Saturday night.

Led by Emma Donovan and Fred Leone, a group of performers including Shellie Morris, Leah Flanagan, Birdz, Yirrmal and William Barton gathered on stage to pay their respects to their beloved Uncle Archie, who died last week of complications from a long illness at the age of 66.

They performed We Won’t Cry from his 2012 album Into the Bloodstream. Many in the crowd wiped away tears as they sang the uplifting ballad: “I’m here by your side/Don’t forget it/I’m with you walking this road/Let go of what’s inside of you/You don’t won’t regret it/Together we can lighten this load.

For the first time in two years, due to Covid restrictions, the National Indigenous Music Awards took place under the stars in a live ceremony in Darwin’s Botanic Gardens on a perfect seasonal night dry, organized by Kukuyalanji-Waanyi-Gangalidda-Woppaburra -Bundjalung-Biripi writer and performer Steven Olivier.

Earlier in the week, Oliver paid tribute to Roach, saying, “Some people will say that…we [have] lost a voice. But how do you lose a voice that has become so rooted in a people, a land and a country that it becomes collectively anchored in a spirit?

“More than a singer, he is a storyteller. More than a straw man, he is a leader. More than a solo artist, he is so many of us who hope for a better, compassionate and truthful future,” Oliver said.

The big winner of the evening was Superstar Yolngu Baker Boywho won Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for his debut album, Gela.

Surf-rock band Yolngu King Stingray won song of the year for crowd favorite Milkumanaa song about the transmission and sharing of knowledge.

Malyangapa-Barkindji lyricist and musician Barkaa won music video of the year for Brown Kinga celebration of independent black women and the power of black matriarchy.

To prove that musical genius is in the family, Jem Cassar-Daley, freelance artist from Gumbaynggirr-Bundjalung won the New Talent Award. Jem is the daughter of country music legend Troy Cassar-Daley, who won 44 gold guitar awards at the Country Music Awards.

The Archie Roach Foundation Prize was awarded to Rapper and drummer Murawari Dobby.

The late Gurrumul was inducted into the Hall of Fame in a ceremony conducted by his brother and co-founder of the Saltwater Band, Manuel Dhurrkay.

The evening hosted live performances from an incredible line-up of First Nations talent including King Stingray, Birdz and Fred Leone, Emma Donovan and the Putbacks, Yirrmal and the Red Flag Dancers.

“[I’m] so honored to be at the Amphitheater with the community,” said awards creative director Ben Graetz. “Celebrating together in person will be something I will remember for a very long time. Also, remembering, honoring and honoring Dr G and Uncle Archie was a real highlight.

It’s a story without bold names, or at least not the kind you usually read in Vanity Room.

And yet, it’s the story of more than 28,000 musicians and music industry workers, and some of the biggest companies in the world.

At the start of the pandemic, when live music was shut down, a group of indie musicians and music workers began meeting weekly on Zoom to share ideas on what we could do to improve the difficult situation at hand. which we were faced with. From these meetings emerged a new advocacy organization, the Union of Musicians and Allied Workers (UMAW). And among the actions taken by UMAW was a reexamination of the economics of music streaming. From scratch, you might say, what it looks like for real working musicians.

Streaming dominates the recorded music industry – it’s now responsible for 83% of all US recorded music revenue, according to record label association RIAA. The remaining 17% includes every other use of recorded music you can think of: not just physical sales and digital downloads, but also soundtracks for movies and TV, and licensing for commercials and trademarks. There just isn’t much left of a recorded music business outside of streaming.

The problem is that streaming barely pays recording artists. There are currently no direct payments from streaming platforms to the musicians themselves, as is the case, for example, with satellite radio. The average per-stream royalty paid by platforms to rightsholders (i.e. record labels) is $0.007 gross, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, and record labels typically keep between 50% and 85% of these receipts. As a result, it takes tens of millions if not hundreds or thousands of millions of streams for artists to earn anything like a living wage from their streaming work. Many artists effectively no longer earn any income from their recordings.

Meanwhile, the streaming platforms themselves are booming: their revenues increased by 24.3% in 2021, reaching a total of $16.9 billion. Paid streaming is only dominated by a few companies. According to market researcher MIDIA, Spotify is by far the major player with 31% of the market, more than double its nearest competitors, Apple (15%) and Amazon (13%). Add in Chinese media giant Tencent (13%) and Alphabet/Google’s YouTube subscription service (8%), and you have 80% of all global streaming subscription revenue managed by just five companies, including many of the richest in the world.

Note that only one of these companies would even call itself a music business – and that’s probably only temporary. Here’s Spotify co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek speaking to his investors earlier this year, as Quoted by Variety:

“The best companies — think of names you all know very well — are very different today than they were when they started,” Ek said. “They made their initial mark in one specific category: books. [Amazon]look for [Google]desktop computers [Apple]. And then they redefined the way we think about these categories by expanding their potential through innovation…. And it’s exactly the same journey that we’re doing.

Ek’s points of comparison are not random. They are its closest competitors in US and European music streaming. Spotify’s recent investments in podcasting, sports and games make it clear how little music is ultimately about the company – its corporate statements now refer to ‘audio’ rather than ‘music’ .

In other words, recording musicians have become entirely dependent on companies that seem to have little or no interest in the future of recorded music. These companies are growing while musicians are suffering.

Mark Hoppus has responded to speculation that Tom DeLonge will join Blink-182.

The singer and bassist celebrated the band’s 30th anniversary on Discord on Monday and was asked by fans about rumors that DeLonge was making a comeback after leaving the trio in 2015.

“There is no news to share. There are no announcements. Today is 30 years of blink-182!” he has answered.

Hoppus later added, “If and when Blink has an announcement about anything, you’ll hear it through official Blink-182 outlets. Not teased on a radio station like ‘listen to a major announcement …Tom tagged Mark in a photo from two decades ago.'”

DeLonge sparked speculation over the weekend by sharing a photo of himself with Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker. He also updated his Instagram bio to acknowledge Blink-182.

After DeLonge left the band he was replaced by Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba and the new line-up released two albums and toured extensively.

However, Skiba admitted to a fan last month that he was unsure whether he would still be in the group.

“Your guess is as good as mine,” he responded to a fan’s Instagram comment. “Anyway, I’m very proud and grateful for the time I spent with Blink 182. We’ll see…”

Mel C has promised that there will be “big celebrations” for “Spiceworld” this year.

The “Stop” singer and his former Spice Girls costars Mel B, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham will mark the 25th anniversary of their film and accompanying album in the coming months and the singer from 48-year-old said there was something special going on.

She said: “Obviously we have the anniversary of the song and the movie, so let’s just say we’ve been in talks with Universal, the label that produced our first movie…

“I don’t want to get in trouble for leaking a big secret!”

“But there will be big celebrations in the coming months, I can tell you that.”

Although they haven’t played as a quintet since 2012 after Victoria opted out of their 2019 reunion tour, Mel – who has 13-year-old daughter Scarlet with former partner Thomas Starr – insisted the group was still “family” to one another.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: “We are one big dysfunctional family.

“Our relationship extends beyond the five of us because our parents are friends and our siblings are friends.

“The Spice Girls aren’t just a girl group. There is a huge Spice family. And the good thing is that everyone has their own life, career and responsibilities, but we are always there for each other.

“We still have that sister bond. It will never go away.

“A lot of our kids are the same age now, so they’re all friends too – it’s amazing.

“Hopefully they finish as close as we do.”

Mel tried to “manifest” another reunion for all of them.

She said, “You must manifest these things!” I took a leaf out of Mel B’s book – she always said, ‘It will happen, we just need to manifest it’, so that’s what I tried to do.
