Ari Hest's Little Lies
PR reports: Columbia Records signed singer-songwriter, Ari Hest, who recorded his entire debut EP in the living room of his Brooklyn apartment. Ari spent all of last summer holed up in his living room playing all the instruments for his debut EP The Green Room Sessions - acoustic and electric guitar, bass, keyboards, harmonica and percussion as well as singing all of the vocals and using whatever else he had laying around to fill out the album be it a sea salt container or water noise from the pipes. Using Apple's Garage Band software, Ari single-handedly pulled together an inspiring major label debut. Along with the four original tracks on The Green Room Sessions, Ari includes a cover of the legendary Fleetwood Mac's "Little Lies." The EP is a taste of his upcoming full length album The Break In which was recorded with Mitchell Froom and is set for release in March of 2007. The album will include two tracks from the EP, "So Slow" and "Just As Well," the remainder being all new, previously unreleased material.

Stomp the Yard
PR reports: "Stepping," or "step-dancing," is a high-energy, wildly entertaining African-American dance style that's been blazing across traditionally black fraternities and sororities for decades.

Rivalry and brotherhood drive the action, but music is what makes this story move.

That music is captured on Stomp the Yard: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, set for release January 9, 2007, on Artists' Addiction Records. The disc boasts music not only from Ne-Yo ("Sign Me Up") and Chris Brown ("Poppin'"), but also The Roots featuring Malik B. and Porn ("In the Music"); Ghostface Killah ("The Champ"); Robert Randolph and The Family Band ("Ain't Nothing Wrong With That"); E-40 featuring The Federation ("Go Hard or Go Home"); UNK ("Walk It Out"); Cut Chemist featuring Edan and Mr. Lif ("Storm"); and Public Enemy ("Supermixx's Black in the Building)."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
