CMD Releases Spectra Music Group Debut Single "What Really Matters" On Friday September 2nd, 2016

CMD Styles and Sonny Spoon are releasing "What Really Matters" featuring Krad D'nim through the Spectra Music Group on Friday September 2nd, 2016. "What Really Matters" is now available for pre-order, get your copy today! #whatreallymatters

As yet another election approaches, we are marred by more senseless acts of violence. From Orlando to Louisiana, Minnesota to Dallas, if only we could replace these random acts of violence with consistent acts of kindness the world would be a much better place. As we seek answers for nonviolence, racial equality, economic balance, and religious tolerance, we pose this one question, "What Really Matters?"

Silence is no longer the answer. Your Voice is your Vote. Stand up and be counted. We are living in a most perilous time in our nation's history. Citizens are terrified to leave their homes. Civil unrest has become commonplace. As a reflection of these grim realities in which we face day to day, Macon, Ga. hometown heroes CMD Styles and Sonny Spoon deliver a powerful new collaborative single "What Really Matters."

"What really matters is a question that needs to be answered," explains CMD. "We understand the concept behind Black Lives Matter, the concept behind All Lives Matter and when police officers say Blue Lives Matter. But we have to ask ourselves what really matters because at the end of the day, we all want to get home alive and celebrate life. The song is a celebration of life regardless of your lifestyle."

Spectra Music Group recording artists Russian Money are releasing their debut single "Somebody Died" on Friday July 22nd, 2016. The new hit single "Somebody Died" is now available for pre-order on digital platforms worldwide.

California based rock/blues band, Russian Money, consists of Ryan Dean and John Bell, both of whom were with the group Poor Mans Poison. Mario Tiexiera from Saltwater and Docs Holiday and Matt Hopson. The group started in early 2015 as a Ryan Dean solo project and quickly developed into what is now, Russian Money. The group is a modern blend of blues infused rock with a darker side.

Russian Money has already had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such acts as Billy Bob Thornton and the Boxmasters and country star Craig Morgan in their short time together. With the release of their debut album 'Nothing For You There' the group plans to continue to spread their dark, melodic take on rock, blues and soul music to listeners around the world.

A fan described Russian Money as such when asked about the group, "The Ruble may be in a slump, but the exchange rate is high for Russian Money, where Ryan Dean proves hes not a 'Poor Man' anymore, with his rich vocals, cashing in on John Bells wealth of guitar talent, while Mario and Matt are 'Putin' down the beats in the rhythm section. Oil prices don't determine the value of this band whose fortune is on the rise. Vodka!"
