Comment by Eleanore Mills on March 9, 2018 at 11:40pm

Eleanore Mills is a New York based recording artist known for her seductive sound, powerful performances, and the uncanny ability to maneuver musically through a myriad of genres, including Broadway and jingles. As a child, her exposure to Gospel, Soul, and Jazz fueled and fostered her natural talent and performing skills. With the release of her album, This is Eleanore Mills, jazz/soul impresario Norman Connors, featured Eleanore as vocalist on his albums, This Is Your Life and Romantic Journey and others. Mills was also chosen as background vocalist for the Roberta Flack featuring Donny Hathaway “Blue Lights in the Basement” album, which included the revered club staples “You Are My Heaven” and “Back Together Again”.As she focused on dance music, she began working with Next Plateau Records. It was there that she achieved her definitive recording, as the featured artist on “Get Wet,” the electro 12” single produced by John Robie. During this time she also released “Mr. Right” on Vinylmania Records with Producer, Larry Woo and on C-Bank’s “Good to the Last Drop”, produced by David Cole of C+C Music Factory; mixed by Bruce Forest. She went on to record “Nightmare of a Broken Heart”, produced and mixed by Bruce Forest with edits by Louie Vega. In addition, she scored a chart topping single “Tonite” with Those Guys at MCA Records, which hit #2 on the Billboard Dance Charts.In 2014, Mills began writing and recording with Eddie 'Eaze' Coleman for the Brooklyn based House label, Deep Nota Records, releasing numerous digital tracks.Most recently, Mills started working with Robert Margouleff, Stevie Wonder's Grammy Award winning producer. Traveling between New York and Los Angeles, she can be heard most recently recording Preston Glass and David Neilsen’s “Hello Love”, and a scorching cover of Stevie Wonder's “Higher Ground”, originally from the classic Innervisions album, which Margouleff co-produced with Malcolm Cecil in 1973. Eleanore resides in New York.

Comment by Billie Davies on January 14, 2018 at 10:07am

BILLIE DAVIES needs a booking agent for New York, the US and Jazz Festivals in the world. Press Kit | Artist Website

As a bandleader, Davies delivers an ambitious program that incorporates r&b-flavored vocals, propulsive bass lines, drum patterns with a swing feel, occasionally blues-tinged keyboard work, growling trombone, epic prog-rock synthesizer washes and brief bouts of hip-hop turntableism, all tied together with an improviser's approach. Bobby Reed - DownBeat Magazine

"A glamorous, gorgeous mixture of jazz and funk displaying Billie Davies’s deft skill. Luxurious textures dominate the collection as Billie Davies draws from a wide variety of sources. Everything simply glistens as the attention to tone and texture are of the utmost importance. Billie Davies offers a cool confident update on jazz.” — Beach Sloth - Skope Magazine

"One of the most successful examples of that proclaimed new direction of New Orleans jazz" Jan Hocek - His Voice.

"A beautiful example of the vitality of the New Orleans scene.” Claude Loxhay - JazzHalo.

“Billie Davies is a very accomplished free-jazz drummer. Born in Belgium, she now lives in New Orleans, having spent much of her life living peripatetically. Previous reviewers have made much of the self-taught nature of her drumming. I defy any listener to distinguish her playing from someone ‘schooled’ in jazz drumming. There is a vitality and fluidity in the way that she plays the drum kit and this is what I mean by the idea that her stories explain her drumming; she speaks through the drums to the other players on this dates, asking questions of them and replying with the fusion of styles that she has built up over her travels. ​” - Chris Baber, Jazz Views (Jun 30, 2016)

Her 2012 release of “all about Love” solidified her position as a professional jazz musician. This recording of standards and original music, charted #1 in CMJ Jazz College Radio Charts for ‘top jazz add’ in new albums and went on to stay in the top 20 for 4 weeks. Also well received in Canada, the album ended up in the Top 10 on three different !Earshot Jazz charts. 
In October, 2013 Billie released “12 VOLT” which garnered national and international attention. Jan Hocek of His Voice in Prague wrote:”Without hesitation - HIGH VOLTAGE avant-garde JAZZ - one of the most remarkable trio albums of the year!" 
In 2013 Billie Davies received the "Jazz Artist of the Year" Award by the 23rd Annual Los Angeles Music Awards.
In March of 2014 she moved to New Orleans where she has graced stages ever since and where she recorded her album "Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon" in 2015. 
She received more national and international attention due to a player feature, "BILLIE DAVIES '20 Years Stronger', published in Downbeat Magazine May 2016 edition. 
The new album, "On Hollywood Boulevard", released 12/10/2016 became a January 2017 Editor's Pick on DownBeat.com. 
December 2017 Billie Davies was nominated for "Best Contemporary Jazz Artist" in New Orleans by OffBeat Magazine's Best Of The Beat Awards.

Comment by Pedro Madaleno on September 18, 2017 at 6:37pm

Hello I am Pedro Madaleno, I am a composer guitarist of Jazz/worldmusic well known in Portugal, with 5 CDs edited, and I am looking for a good Music Agency in Europe to book my concerts. At this moment I am in the stage of presenting the 2nd CD of my sextet, which recorded a CD in 2015, which, among other prizes, was 2 months in the top mº1 of recommended CDs and CDs most heard, one of the best jazz sites of the world, allaboutjazz.com. We have already played at almost all the Jazz festivals in Portugal,some in Spain, and we would be very happy to start playing in Festivals in the rest of Europe. I leave here some songs from the 2015 CD, '' That smile on your face '' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KescWvEksE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTQvlOVE5gM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skDXOaw0diY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szbg0_OoZcc In my group I count on great musiciansL João Barradas - acordeão (an excellent new European talent that is playing with Mike Stern, Greg Osby), Yuri Daniel-bass, (bass player of Jan Garbarek), Bruno Pedroso -bateria (drummer of Abé Rabade trio), João David Almeida- voice and great singer Diogo Vida-piano Pedro Madaleno-guitar. About the group, I can describe that it presents a type of orchestral music that crosses all borders, in a perfect blend of Portuguese soul, fado, tango, with jazz, worldmusic, classical and film, with themes that are super direct with very strong melodies and that they play to all people, it is not music for a restricted audience of jazz, but to play in all worldmusic festivals and alternative music. The project is played by 6 excellent musicians, in a super melodious orchestral song full of elaborate arrangements and nuances. In addition to having formed a large part of the generation of young jazz musicians in Portugal, for now I will open the first Creative WorldMusic school in Portugal, in Lisbon, and also one of the first in Europe.

I'm an international Jazz and Bossa Nova concert artiste, self-accompanied on piano or guitar as is most appropriate.

I normally work solo, but sometimes with bass and drums. I've performed literally around the world and alongside everyone from Barney Kessel to Benny Carter...Stephane Grappelly to Cleo Laine.

I'm a regular at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, the Royal Albert Hall etc...

I'm interested in festivals, tours, concerts literally around the world (based in London).

Searching for booking agents...

Earl Okin.

Comment by GiGi - Lady With The Fan on July 19, 2016 at 6:55pm

Hello, I am a relatively new artist; however, I have been performing since 2012.  Released my CD in Cannes, France in June at a CD release party there.  Please visit my site  www.gigisjazz.com  

I perform weekly on Tuesday nights at an upscale restaurant featuring French cuisine.  I particularly like that type of setting, however, I perform at weddings, small parties, large balls.  I write my own material and plan an album release featuring my Title CD by year end.

Please contact me at any time to learn more.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
