Spectra Music Group Releases Debut Single "Change-Nothing To Lose" by L.A.Davis on December 30, 2014

UK Singing Sensation L.A. Davis releases his first single with The Spectra Music Group titled "Change-Nothing To Lose" on Tuesday December 30th, 2014. Pre-order your copy today!!!

Singer/songwriter L. A. Davis was born in the bustle of London’s East End. His spirit and determination to succeed come from an overwhelming ability to understand life from the viewpoint of the less advantaged. As a true ‘Cockney’ Londoner, he centre’s his lyrics right from the heart: ‘It really doesn’t matter what a melody sounds like; if the words aren’t true, then listeners are less likely to buy into the ethic of a song,’ he says.


His London upbringing provides L. A. Davis with lyrical inspiration, while the gravely, smoky quality to his voice lends the key distinction between his musical counterparts. James Morrison, Stevie Wonder and Bruno Mars and, more recently, Sam Smith have all inspired this truly talented young artist. Signed to the Spectra Music Group, L. A. Davis will release his widely anticipated debut album in 2015. It has already been hailed as one to watch. His raw honesty and his ability to perform live time and time again, make this artist a sure fire hit with fans of live music.

L. A Davis is fast becoming a well known face on the live music circuit: the winner of Live and Unsigned – Best Unsigned Pop Act in the UK 2010, he is widely known as a performer who is willing to take risks within the boundaries of live performance. “The moment you stop giving (to an audience),” he says, “is the moment you stop getting back.”

The new single 'Change-Nothing To Lose" is being released worldwide on Tuesday December 30th, 2014. "Change-Nothing To Lose" by L.A. Davis is available today at iTunes.

Spectra Artist Jimi Jamison Dies

Jimi Jamison, the lead singer of Eighties rock bands Cobra and Survivor, passed away August 31 after suffering a heart attack. He was 63. Jamison's booking manager confirmed to that the former Survivor singer had died. 


Jamison served as Survivor's lead singer from 1984 until 1988, proving the vocals for the band's hits like "The Moment of Truth" from The Karate Kid, "Is This Love," and "Burning Heart" from Rocky IV. As a solo artist, he recorded the track "I'm Always Here," which became the memorable theme song for the TV series Baywatch. Jamison had chart topping hits such as "The Search Is Over," "I Can't Hold Back," "High On You."

Jamison joined Survivor after their then-lead singer, David Bickler, was forced to leave the group after developing polyps on his vocal chords shortly after Survivor recorded their biggest hit, the Grammy-winning Rocky III cut "Eye of the Tiger." In 1984, following the dissolution of Cobra, Jamison stepped in as Survivor lead singer, recording three albums with the band, 1984'sVital Signs, 1986's When Seconds Count and 1988's Too Hot to Sleep. Survivor disbanded in 1989, but reformed in 1993 with Bickler back at the microphone. Jamison would eventually rejoin Survivor in 2000 for another six years.

In the Nineties, the band was mired in legal issues as Jamison toured under the Survivor moniker even though his former bandmates, who had reunited with Bickler, also performed as Survivor. This lead to lawsuits between the two groups, which weren't resolved until guitarist Frankie Sullivan assumed ownership of the Survivor name. The band eventually made amends and, in recent years, Survivor toured with both Jamison and Bickler.

At press time, neither Survivor's Twitter nor Facebook accounts had commented on Jamison's death. The band had performed in Morgan Hill, California on August 30. They were scheduled to begin another tour on September 12 in Parker, Colorado.

Pop Star Chris Trousdale Inks Deal With The Spectra Music Group

American pop artist Chris Trousdale is a triple threat with dancing and acting chops that are as stand out as his vocals. He first got the performance bug when he starred in Broadway hits Les Miserables and The Sound of Music at the young age of 8 years old. His involvement with Broadway led him to joining the performance group The Broadway Kids.




After his time in Broadway Kids he went to join the platinum selling teen boy band Dream Street whose debut album went directly to #1 on the U.S. charts. Dream Street had a very successful run which included touring with artists such as Britney Spears and Aaron Carter as well as sold out headling tours across America.

Chris starred as the lead in the movie The Biggest Fan, which has gone to sell over 300,000 copies as well as airing on the Nickelodeon network worldwide gaining him an international fan base.

After 3 record breaking years, Dream Street parted ways leading to Chris pursuing a solo career. He teamed up with the Swedish pop group PLAY on a remake of "Im Gonna Make You Love Me," which was certified Gold in America. Another stand out collaboration would be his 2003 duet with Jive Records pop sensation Nikki Cleary on a remake of Grease hit "You’re The One That I Want." In addition to multiple releases, which were added in heavy rotation on Radio Disney, Chris lent his vocals to collaborations with Jewel and musical legend Ray Charles.

On top of touring America, Chris found the time to get back in front of the camera for roles in both silver screen and small screen productions. He starred in the crime thriller Seducing Spirits which allowed him to reach a new audience and show a bit of edge he hadn’t displayed in previous roles. Doing a complete 180 from Seducing Spirits, Chris was a guest star on the Disney Channel hit series Shake It Up where he showcased what a triple threat he really is. Chris recorded the song "I’m Not Too Young" for the shows soundtrack and performed it on the episode in which he starred along with some amazing choreography.

Now Chris Trousdale is working on his solo project and has teamed up with The Spectra Music Group(the largest indie record label in the world )  to release his much anticipated new music. With frequent appearances on Nickelodeon and The Disney Channel, fans are ecstatic about the new record cannot wait for his first single to be dropped early Fall 2014.

Matthew Modine Talks Full Metal Jacket Audiobook On The Today Show

Celebrities are the new rock stars of audiobooks. Just look at the big winners at last month's Audies, known as the Oscars of the audiobook industry: Billy Crystal and Pete Seeger, each of whom voiced their own publications. And they're not even the tip of the iceberg: Oprah Winfrey, Katy Perry, Kristen Bell and dozens of other stars are lending their talents to audiobook readings.




“It’s a combination of a couple of things,” says Publishers Weekly editorial director Jim Milliot. “A lot more books are available by digital download, because they’re cheaper to produce. They've got the knack of doing these at a much lower cost now, so in some ways it really is the golden age of audiobooks.” Revenue for audiobooks has grown 12 percent since 2008, according to a recent IBIS World Study, making it a $1.6 billion industry, and the Audio Publishing Association reported that the number of published titles has nearly doubled in 2013. But using a celebrity to provide the voice lends the production an extra boost.

Matthew Modine has read other peoples’ audiobooks before, but lately has been focusing on his own project: A reading of his collected diary entries from his time filming Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.” Initially he’d thought about getting another actor with a younger-sounding voice to tell the tale (Modine is 55; he was in his mid-20s when he made the movie). But the audiobook’s producer, Adam Rackoff, convinced him otherwise.

“He thought it would be more compelling to the audience to have the person who wrote the diary bring those words to life,” Modine recalls. “And, hopefully, a greater selling point.” The audiobook is coming out through the Spectra Music Group.

Deborah Bonham releases new album "Spirit" on Tuesday March 11, 2014.The crafty, stylish and incomparable artist and little sister of John Bonham of Led Zeppelin fame is set out on a course all of her own. Deborah is no stranger to the industry and her new album "Spirit" is one album that will stand apart from anything else.The spirit in the songs and music of Deborah Bonham draws on the hurt, pain, joy and anger that come with life for all of us. Negatives are decanted as positivity, from mistakes comes learning. From that spirit comes the determination to always push forward and celebrate life, sharing experiences with her audience. As she sings in the opening salvo from the album: “Pain is going away, it's gonna stop today. I'm gonna fly”.


So there could be only one title for the new album: but Deborah also has soul. It's the soul that comes from her deep love and understanding of so many musical greats - Otis Redding, Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, Elkie Brooks, Lowell George and many more - all of whom are artists who surrounded themselves with great musicians who had that same 'feel' and so it is with Deborah's band. It's also their instinctive affinity with the words being sung and how they absorb her emotions; sometimes soft, sometimes fierce.

The last two years has seen Deborah performing in the UK, Europe & USA alongside and dueting with Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant and Nazareth’s Dan McCafferty . She also performed alongside Ozzy Osbourne in the Czech Republic, where she returned for more shows and also appeared at the massive Harley Davidson festivals in France and Austria (100,000 people). During her career she has toured and performed with Van Halen, Alannah Myles, Tim Rose, Uli Jon Roth, Paul Weller, Humble Pie, Donovan, Lonnie Donegan, Jools Holland, Ann Peebles, Foreigner and FM. She’s played festivals from Glastonbury to Donnington, Harley Davidson to Ripfest, twice at Fairport Convention's Cropredy Festival, and opened for Bad Co’s 40th Anniversary shows in Illinois USA.

Deborah Bonham has recently released her catalog of albums to digital outlets around the world. Loyal Bonham fans that have been itching for her previous albums can now go to iTunes, Amazon and more to pick them up. The albums include "For You and The Moon," "Duchess," and "The Old Hyde."

A supporting tour is already in the works for the UK as well as the USA.
