{"key":"6114","name":"Lady Gaga","bio":"Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (born March 28, 1986), who performs under the stage name Lady Gaga, is a singer, songwriter and musician from New York City, New York, United States. Before Gaga adopted her stage name she was in a band called Stefani Germanotta Band. She released her first EP, \u201cRed and Blue\", in early 2006. The following year, music producer Rob Fusari dubbed her Lady Gaga, inspired by the Queen song \"Radio Gaga\". After this she recorded her first two songs as Lady Gaga (Fever and Wonderful) on Def Jam records, but was later let go.She began her career as a songwriter for some of pop music's biggest stars, including Fergie, Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears and New Kids on the Block, as well as American singer and producer Akon. After Akon recognized that Gaga also had vocal talent, he signed her to a joint deal with his own label, Kon Live Distribution, and then she started to work on her own new material for her debut album.Gaga released \"The Fame\" in 2008, which she explained was \"about how anyone can feel famous.\" To date, the album has spawned the international number one hit singles \u201cJust Dance\" (nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 51st Grammy Awards) and \"Poker Face. The Fame then went Diamond in February 2010, selling over 12 million copies worldwide.She then continued to release a new album 1 year later, \"The Fame Monster\", which she wasn't intending to make at first. She released \u201cBad Romance\" as the first single, and has been nominated for dozens of awards all over the world. After The Fame Monster was released she released two more singles \"Telephone (feat. Beyonc\u00e9)\" and \"Alejandro\". She released \"Dance in the Dark\" as a promotional single, but only released it in Australia, New Zealand and France. She undertook a large scale tour since \"The Fame Monster\" was released, and referred to her shows as The Monster Ball.Lady Gaga announced her new album name, \"Born This Way\" at the 2010 MTV VMAs and it was released on May 23, 2011 and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200. It was her second studio album and received generally positive reviews from music critics, who praised its range of different styles and her vocals. \u201cBorn This Way\u201d received three Grammy Award nominations, including Lady Gaga\u2019s third consecutive for Album of the Year. The accompanying tour, entitled \u201cBorn This Way Ball\u201d, kicked off in April 2012 with over 100 shows scheduled worldwide. Due to a hip injury, Lady Gaga canceled the remainder of the tour in February 2013. On November 6, 2013, Lady Gaga released her third studio album entitled \u201cArtpop\u201d, with featured guest appearances from T.I., Too Short, Twista and R. Kelly. \u201cArtpop\u201d is a synthpop album, infused with urban, R&B, techno, rock and electronic beats. The album received mixed reviews from critics with some praising Lady Gaga\u2019s vocals, with others criticizing its perceived lack of maturity. Following a 2-day release event \u2013 \u201cArtRave\u201d \u2013 the album debuted at number 1 in the US, and charted in the top 10 in over 20 countries.Applause was serviced as the lead single from Artpop on August 12, 2013, and was a critical and commercial success, charting within the top ten of more than twenty countries worldwide, peaking at number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The second single Do What U Want was released on October 21, and peaked at number 13 in the United States. It was followed by promotional singles Venus and Dope shortly before the album's release.

{"key":"64469","name":"PVRIS","bio":"Formed in Lowell, Massachusetts in 2012, PVRIS' members certainly have a fascinating story to share. Upon meeting in 2009 while partaking in a previous musical affair, vocalist and guitarist Lynn Gunn and drummer Brad Griffin soon met eye to eye on one thing: something didn\u2019t feel quite right. Towards the end of their run together with their previous band, they met guitarist Alex Babinski (formerly of I Am the Fallen). \u201cWhen we met him and he and I were writing together it was just instant chemistry,\u201d says Gunnulfsen. Soon after the band clicked with Babinski, they gracefully entered the studio to create the being in which rock n\u2019 roll fans everywhere would soon begin to know as PVRIS.\u201cDuring that time we entered the studio together, several changes came about\u2026 an entirely new sound, new approach to writing and more. Since we had a whole new approach, we only felt it would be right to just become a whole new band,\u201d Gunn states. It was around this time that the band was introduced to bassist Brian MacDonald and once again felt the instant chemistry they experienced with Babinski. \u201cFrom then on, we felt as if we had finally found the perfect line-up for the direction we wanted to take. It was gratifying!\u201d adds Babinski.Whilst continuing their time in the studio over as one single essence, the band has taken time to return to ad bits and pieces to each composition to be sure that each piece fit exactly with the rest. The four of them find it difficult to pinpoint exact influences but Gunn is satisfied saying, \u201cWe didn't want to aim for any particular sound, but we wanted to keep it really gritty and in your face, yet catchy with a sense of grace to it. Beauty and the beast in music form, in a way.\u201dTo summarize what PVRIS offers musically, it\u2019s easy to sense that they bring a concourse of strong emotion straight to the table. That being said, the band has flawlessly used their teen angst to form a remarkable EP due out late summer that is sure to astound the music scene. With a tight knit line-up, unshaken balance, alluring vocals and a drive unlike any other, the three members of PVRIS are ready to step onto the nearest stage at any given time to show you just what they\u2019ve got. In June 2014 PVRIS announced that they had signed with Rise Records, becoming the first female-fronted act on the famed metalcore label's roster. Their debut album, White Noise, arrived in November of that year.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/64469_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"573","name":"Depeche Mode","bio":"Depeche Mode are an English synthpop band, founded in 1980, originally from the town of Basildon, Essex, United Kingdom. They are one of the most enduring and successful bands to have emerged during the 80s, and particularly from the new wave\/new romantic era. The band name is derived from a French fashion magazine, D\u00e9p\u00eache mode, which means \"fashion dispatch.\"The band have been highly influential in the electronic dance music scene, especially synthpop, techno and trance, in part due to their innovative work, recording techniques and use of sampling. Their most successful album is arguably 1990's Violator, which reached the #2 position in the UK, #7 in the US, and sold over 8 million copies worldwide. The band has released a long series of high-charting singles over their three-decades long career. Enjoy the Silence is their most recognized song and is one of the most covered songs in history. The original line-up was Dave Gahan, Martin L. Gore, Andy Fletcher and Vince Clarke. In December 1981, Clarke left the band and later went on to form Yazoo, The Assembly and Erasure. Alan Wilder joined the group initially in January 1982 as a live keyboardist but became an official member in December 1982. He left mid-1995 to fully concentrate on his Recoil project and the band continued as a trio. In 2010 Wilder re-joined Depeche Mode on stage after 16 years, for a performance of Somebody during a show at London's Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.Depeche Mode's origins date back to 1977, when Vince Clarke and Andrew Fletcher formed a band called No Romance in China, with Clarke on vocals and guitar and Fletcher on bass. In March 1980, Clarke, Gore and Fletcher formed a band called Composition of Sound, with Clarke on vocals\/guitar, Gore on keyboards and Fletcher on bass. Soon after the formation of Composition of Sound, Clarke and Fletcher switched to synthesizers. Dave Gahan joined the band in 1980 after Clarke heard him perform at a local scout hut jam session, singing to a rendition of David Bowie's \"Heroes\", and Depeche Mode were born. While playing a live gig at the Bridge House in Canning Town, the band were approached by Daniel Miller, the founder of Mute Records, who proposed them a verbal contract. The result was their first single Dreaming of Me, recorded in December 1980 and released in February 1981, reaching number 57 in the UK charts and followed soon by a real contract with Mute.As of 2006, it was estimated that Depeche Mode had sold over 100 million records (60 million albums \/ 40 million singles) worldwide and have had 48 songs in the UK singles chart. They are the best selling band to have never had a UK number 1 single. According to Q Magazine, Depeche Mode is \"the most popular electronic band the world has ever known.\"To date, Depeche Mode have released:13 studio albums: Speak & Spell (1981), A Broken Frame (1982), Construction Time Again (1983), Some Great Reward (1984), Black Celebration (1986), Music For the Masses (1987), Violator (1990), Songs of Faith and Devotion (1993), Ultra (1997), Exciter (2001), Playing the Angel (2005), Sounds of the Universe (2009), and Delta Machine (2013);8 compilations: People Are People (1984), The Singles 81-85 (1985), Catching Up with Depeche Mode (1985), Greatest Hits (1987), The Singles 86>98 (1998), Remixes 81-04 (2004), The Best Of Depeche Mode Volume 1 (2006), The Complete Depeche Mode (2006);4 live albums: 101 (1989), Songs of Faith and Devotion Live (1993), Recording the Angel (a series of live recordings; 2006), Recording the Universe (a series of live recordings; 2009);49 singles: including Just Can't Get Enough, Everything Counts, People Are People, Master and Servant, Shake the Disease, Stripped, A Question of Time, Strangelove, Never Let Me Down Again, Personal Jesus, Enjoy the Silence, World in My Eyes, Policy of Truth, I Feel You, Walking in My Shoes, In Your Room, Barrel of a Gun, It's No Good, Home, Dream On, Freelove, Precious and Wrong;11 video materials (VHS\/DVD\/Blu-ray): The World We Live In and Live in Hamburg (1985), Some Great Videos (1985), Strange (1988), 101 (1989), Strange Too (1990), Devotional (1993), The Videos 86>98 (1998), Some Great Videos 81>85 (1998), One Night in Paris (2002), The Videos 86>98 + (2002), Touring the Angel: Live in Milan (2006), The Best of - Volume 1 (2006), Tour of the Universe : Barcelona 20\/21.11.09 (2009)","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/573_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"200,000 - 350,000"}

{"key":"199","name":"Gorillaz","bio":"Gorillaz are a British virtual band formed in 1998 by Damon Albarn of Blur, and Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the comic book Tank Girl. They had the idea to create the band while watching MTV in their London flat and originally intended to call the project Gorilla.The band consists of four fictional band members: 2-D (vocals, keyboard), Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar, vocals), and Russel Hobbs (drums). These characters only appear in animated form and are not alter-egos of real people, as is often mistakenly assumed. There is an extensive fictional back-story behind these band members, written by Albarn and Hewlett. Their albums, several of their music videos, and their autobiographical book Rise Of The Ogre all tell the saga. Damon Albarn is the only permanent musical contributor to the band, which is also a collaboration between various musicians. Their style is broad with a large number of alternative influences including rock, hip-hop, and electronica.They have released four studio albums: Gorillaz (2001), Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010) and The Fall (Also in 2010). Additionally, they have put out two B-side collections, G-Sides (2001) and D-Sides (2007), and a reggae remix of the Gorillaz album entitled Laika Come Home (2002). The band has also released three DVDs: Phase One: Celebrity Takedown, Demon Days: Live at Manchester Opera House, and Phase Two: Slow Boat To Hades. At the end of 2010, Gorillaz released their next album, The Fall, which was recorded during their US 'Escape to Plastic Beach' tour. It is promoted as being the first album made entirely on iPad. The album is streamed on the Gorillaz website.The band's first single, Clint Eastwood, was released on 5 March 2001. This single was the first of four from Gorillaz, which was released on 26 March 2001. The other three singles were released over the next year. These were: 19-2000, Rock the House, and Tomorrow Comes Today. The album sold over 7 million copies worldwide and has gone platinum twice in the United Kingdom earning them an entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band. It was nominated for the Mercury Prize, but the nomination was later withdrawn at the band's request. Collaborators on the first album included Del tha Funkee Homosapien (often mistaken as a band-member), Miho Hatori (formerly of Cibo Matto), Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads.and Ibrahim Ferrer. The album was produced by Dan the Automator.At the end of 2001 the band released another single, 911, which was a collaboration between Gorillaz and rap artists D12, Eminem and Terry Hall. The single was from the soundtrack to the 2002 action comedy Bad Company.Their second studio album, Demon Days, was released on 11 May 2005 and included the hit singles Feel Good Inc., DARE, Dirty Harry and Kids With Guns \/ El Ma\u00f1ana. Demon Days went five times platinum in the UK, double platinum in the United States, and earned five Grammy award nominations for 2006 and won one of them (Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals). Collaborators on this album (produced by Dj Danger Mouse) include De La Soul, Bootie Brown of The Pharcyde, Shaun Ryder of Happy Mondays, Neneh Cherry, Ike Turner, MF Doom, and Roots Manuva, amongst others.In late 2007, Albarn and Hewlett began working on Carousel, a new Gorillaz project which eventually evolved into the band's third studio album, Plastic Beach, which was released 9 March 2010. Albarn said, \"I'm making this one the most pop record I've ever made in many ways, but with all my experience to try and at least present something that has got depth.\u201d The album features guest performances by Snoop Dogg, Lou Reed, Mos Def, Bobby Womack, Gruff Rhys, Mark E. Smith, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, Kano, Bashy, De La Soul, Little Dragon, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, sinfonia ViVA, and The Lebanese National Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music. A 3D projection of the group was shown at the 2005 MTV Music Awards and the 2006 Grammys. They also performed at the Brits, in a different format, using screens rather than projections. Gorillaz have performed live in other occasions as well: in 2001 & 2002 they did tours where the musicians played behind screens, and in 2005 & 2006, Gorillaz had five nights in Manchester and New York respectively. This time the screens were behind the musicians, who were visible to the audience only as silhouettes (except for the guest-stars).Since the band began to achieve mainstream success, there have been rumours of them working on a full-length movie. Some of these have been confirmed, but nothing has gotten beyond planning stages, mainly due to conflicts between the band and studios involved. In 2008, Hewlett said \"Ultimately we didn't think that feel we're in a position to make the kind of movie we want to make with Gorillaz at the moment. But I'd still like to make a full, lavishly-animated Gorillaz movie someday.\"Albarn and Hewlett created a Pop Opera called Monkey: Journey to the West, which premiered in the summer of 2007 at the Manchester International Festival. A soundtrack album was recorded in the summer as well (initially only digitally available though a CD version was released in 2008). The production went on to show at the Th\u00e9\u00e2tre du Ch\u00e2telet in Paris in September-October 2007, the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC, USA in May 2008, and the Royal Opera House in London in July 2008.The duo behind the Pop Opera built on ideas from Monkey: Journey to the West to release a short film in the Summer of 2008 which accompanied the United Kingdom's coverage of the BBC Olympic Coverage in Beijing. It featured a basic outline of the main plot elements of the Opera, reworked into a \"Journey to the East\", with the characters finishing in the Beijing Olympic Stadium. Gorillaz headlined the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2010, as an immediate replacement for U2, who dropped out of performing at the festival.At the end of 2010 Gorillaz released their next album The Fall made in the hotel rooms during their US tour. It is the first album made entirely on iPad. The album is streamed on the Gorillaz website and was available for free download for a limited time.In April 2012, Albarn told The Guardian that he and Hewlett had fallen out and that future Gorillaz projects were \"unlikely\".Gorillaz's current live band's lineup includes Damon Albarn - Vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass guitar Jamie Hewlett - Illustration, visuals, FX Mike SmithMick Jones - guitarPaul Simonon - bassCass Browne - Drums, percussion","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/199_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"100,000 - 200,000"}

Throughout her career, many of her songs have hit number one on international music charts, including Like a Virgin, Papa Don't Preach, Like a Prayer, Vogue, Frozen, Music, Hung Up, and 4 Minutes (feat. Justin Timberlake & Timbaland). Madonna has been praised by critics for her diverse musical productions while at the same time serving as a lightning rod for religious controversy, specifically and especially with the Catholic Church.Her career has been further enhanced by film appearances, despite mixed reviews. She won critical acclaim and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her role in Evita (1996), but has received harsh feedback for other film roles. Madonna's other ventures include being a fashion designer, children's book author, film director and producer. She has been acclaimed as a businesswoman, and signed an unprecedented US $120 million contract with Live Nation in 2007.Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world's top-selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records.

Considered to be one of the \"25 Most Powerful Women of the 20th Century\" by Time for being an influential figure in contemporary music, Madonna is known for continuously reinventing both her music and image, and for retaining a standard of autonomy within the recording industry. She is recognized as an inspiration among numerous music artists.After signing to Sire Records in 1982, Madonna's debut single Everybody was released in October of the same year. One year later, her eponymous debut album followed, and since then hits such as Holiday, Like a Virgin, Papa Don\u2019t Preach and Like a Prayer catapulted her to massive success. By the 1990s, her commercially successful albums, constantly reinvented image, groundbreaking music videos and controversial nature would earn her the title \u201cQueen of Pop.\u201dApart from achieving 12 No.1 singles, 37 top 10 singles and 48 top 40 hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, Madonna also maintains the record for the most separate calendar weeks as a female artist with a charting single in any position (853+ weeks). She has also garnered 21 MTV Video Music Awards - the most by any artist (including the special Video Vanguard Award), eight Grammy Awards, as well as a Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) Golden Globe Award for her performance in \u201cEvita\u201d. Two soundtrack cuts performed by Madonna, \"Sooner or Later\" and \"You Must Love Me\", have been awarded with Academy Awards (Oscars). On the United World Chart, Madonna is the Most Successful Singles Artist of All Time and has a record of 13 number one singles. Madonna also holds the record of 40 #1 Hot Dance Club Play hits in the US, the most for any artist ever. Her 2008-2009 Sticky & Sweet Tour remains the two highest-grossing concert tour ever by a female solo artist, having grossed US$ 408 million.Madonna's 13th studio album, Rebel Heart, was released in March 2015. Initially scheduled for release in late April 2015, the release of the album was brought forward to early March 2015 following the leak of several early demo recordings in December 2014, while six tracks from the album were officially released into iTunes on 20 December 2014.

They are named after the lyrics \"The fate of the world is safe in Crystal Castles\" and \"Crystal Castles, the source of all power\" both from the theme song for She-Ra's fortress. They are known for their melancholic lo-fi sound and their explosive live shows. Their debut album was included in NME's \"Top 50 Albums of the Decade\".Initally the band was a solo project started by Ethan Kath in December 2003. Ethan later discovered Alice Glass singing in a noise-punk band, and thought he had found the \"missing ingredient\" to his music. In 2004 Ethan gave Alice 60 instrumental tracks and in April 2005 she recorded vocals over five instrumentals. The band's first single Alice Practice was actually a microphone test by Glass. She was not aware that the recording existed until London UK's Merok Records asked to release the track on vinyl. The limited release sold out in 3 days. In 18 March 2008 they released their debut album entitled Crystal Castles. This album reached #47 on UK Albums Chart, #6 on US Top Electronic Albums, #13 on US Top Heatseekers, and #32 on US Independent Albums.

Crystal Castles used Trevor Brown's artwork (depicting a black-eyed Madonna) without permission. -\tIn one of Kath's earliest, unreleased demos, he incorporated a sample without permission. The track, \"Insectica (CC vs Lo-Bat Version)\", uses clips chopped out of a song by Lo-bat called \"My Little Droid Needs a Hand\", released under a Creative Commons license. Another track called \"Love and Caring\", samples the kick and snare from Covox's \"Sunday\".In 23 April 2010 the duo released their second album Crystal Castles (II).

{"key":"6116","name":"The Prodigy","bio":"The Prodigy are a Braintree, Essex, UK, electronic music group (aka Prodigy), formed by Liam Howlett (composition, keyboards), in 1990. They have sold over 20 million records worldwide, which is almost unequalled in dance music history.Their music consists of various styles ranging from rave and breakbeat hardcore in the early 90s to alternative rock and big beat, with punk vocal elements in later times. Other current band members include: Keith Flint (dancing, vocals), Maxim (MCing, vocals) and live guitarist Rob Holliday (Marilyn Manson, Gary Numan, Curve, Sulpher).Leeroy Thornhill (dancing, occasional live keyboards), was a member of the band from 1990 to 2000, as well was a female dancer \/ vocalist Sharky, who left the band during their early period. Other notable former live members include: Gizz Butt (guitar - English Dogs, Janus Stark, Sabbat) - toured with the band for three years throughout the late '90s, Kieron Pepper (drum - Realtv, Happy Gilmore) - played for the group from 1997 to 2007 (also contributing to the solo projects of Maxim and Flint's band, Flint), as well as Jim Davies (guitar - Pitchshifter), who also performed in Flint.The Prodigy first emerged on the underground rave scene in the early 1990, releasing their d\u00e9but LP Experience (1992) and have since then achieved immense popularity and worldwide renown. Some of their most popular songs include \"Charly\", \"Out of Space\", \"No Good (Start the Dance)\", \"Voodoo People\", \"Firestarter\", \"Breathe\" and \"Smack My Bitch Up\".The name displayed on album covers changed from 'The Prodigy' to 'Prodigy' between Music for the Jilted Generation and The Fat of the Land (1997) and back again with the release of Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (2004). However, Howlett has attested the title has always been 'The Prodigy' and the change was made only to fit within the displayed logo.Maxim originally began as an MC for the band before doing vocals on \"Poison\", a track on their second album Music for the Jilted Generation and then several others on The Fat of the Land. He remains a member, MCing at the live shows.Flint began as a dancer for the band before moving on to become a vocalist initially on the track \"Firestarter\" but then for several others on the third album The Fat of the Land. Flint is probably the most visually recognisable member of the band and considered by many to be the front-man though he has very little input to writing the songs. He still sings with the live show but has virtually no input on the albums however, he did write the single \"Baby's Got a Temper\".Following the relative commercial and critical failure of 2004's Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned the band released a greatest hits Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005 before 2009's return to form Invaders Must Die.After the release and success of The Fat of the Land, Howlett was feeling down as he could not produce any songs up to standard up until one of his friends showed him the program Reason from Propellerhead Software. This program inspired him who instantly went to the studio and started producing tracks using it; he decided he did not want to use it for baselines though, as he prefers the analogue sound.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6116_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"254","name":"Moby","bio":"Moby (born Richard Melville Hall on September 11, 1965, in Harlem, New York) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, DJ and photographer. He is well-known for his electronic music, vegan lifestyle, and support of animal rights. From beginning as a musician in 1982, Moby gained attention in the early 1990s with his electronic dance music work that experimented in the techno and breakbeat genres. He has sold over 20 million albums worldwide. He has also released music under the names Voodoo Child, Barracuda, U.H.F., The Brotherhood, DJ Cake, Lopez, On the Rim of the Wheel a Nail, and Brainstorm\/Mindstorm.Moby plays keyboards, guitar and bass guitar. He took his performing name from the novel Moby-Dick by Herman Melville, who is his great-great-granduncle. His work, while focused in general on various forms of electronic music, have explored many other styles.Early yearsMoby used to be in a punk rock band called the Vatican Commandos, which was formed in 1980. The group evolved away from punk in 1989 for electronic music. He realized his music tastes and growth were going in a different direction than his previous band's vibe, and he broke off on his own.His first album \"The Story So Far (aka Moby)\" featured the single \"Go\", which gained popularity in many discos, and earned a spot on the UK charts. The song is so popular that Moby still plays \"Go\" regularly in his sets. \"Go\" is a progressive track using the string line from \"Laura Palmer's Theme\" from the TV drama Twin Peaks.1994-1998His first album for the UK based MUTE Records was Everything Is Wrong (which had US distribution via Elektra) , which earned early critical praise and minor commercial success. He followed that up with a hard rock\/electronic album called Animal Rights in 1996. In 1997, he released I Like to Score, a collection of music included in movies. Among those tracks was an updated version of the James Bond theme used for the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. However, both Animal Rights and I Like to Score had only limited success and Moby and Elektra parted company however he remained signed to MUTE.1999-2004After a decade's worth of music, Moby's breakthrough album was 1999's Play. Mainstream reviewers raved about his talents on the album (released on V2 Records) though some early fans were let down. The album has 18 tracks and was the first album in history to have all of its tracks commercially licensed: \"Porcelain,\" for instance, appeared on TV commercials for Bailey's Irish Cream, Hong Kong's PCCW and Nordstrom, and Volkswagen's MKIV Jetta; \"Find My Baby\" was on a commercial for American Express featuring golfer Tiger Woods. The album's tracks eventually were accepted in various radio formats, but because of Play's extensive licensing, the album could have been financially successful even without radio play. In addition to fame garnered through its licensing, Play is also notable for its extensive sampling of old blues recordings collected by Alan Lomax. In a 2005 posting on his web site, Moby theorized that his eagerness to license his music is a result of \"growing up in poverty.\"In 2001, Moby founded the Area:One Festival. It was a popular touring rock festival that featured an eclectic range of musical genres. A second tour was organized for the following year.In 2001 Moby also earned the ire of Eminem after calling his music misogynistic and homophobic; Eminem later satirized Moby (among others) in \"Without Me,\" calling him a \"fag\" and questioning his relevance with the claim \"Nobody listens to techno.\" Moby replied that he hadn't played techno since 1992. The two were in a confrontation at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, though Moby expresses respect for Eminem as an artist.In 2002, Moby briefly had a television show on MTV, Se\u00f1or Moby's House of Music, which focused mostly on more obscure electronic music. Also in 2002, Moby released 18, an album that had 18 tracks. The most popular song on the album was \"We Are All Made of Stars\". Moby says he wrote \"We Are All Made of Stars\" because of the September 11th Terrorist Attacks, which happened on his birthday.2005In 2005 Moby released \"Lift Me Up\", a single from his album Hotel, which featured, in addition to numerous remixes, UK company Digimpro's software. The program allows users to remix the song - using any or all of the samples included\u2014and save it as an MP3 file. Thus unlimited, personalized versions of the title track were possible. Digimpro had previously seen exposure with group Erasure's single \"Breathe,\" allowing users the same ability. Instead of his usual usage of samples, all of the vocals and instruments on \"Hotel\" were performed live in the studio by Moby and vocalist Laura Dawn, who is the Cultural Director of MoveOn.org.For certain dates on Moby's 2005 European tour, Liveherenow provided concert goers with CDs of the show 10 minutes after the show finished. Other Mute Records artists like Erasure and Client have previously used this company for similar reasons.2006Moby has recently scored the soundtrack for Richard Kelly's upcoming movie 'The Southland Tales'. Whilst he is generally against composing music for films, he was a huge fan of Kelly's previous film 'Donnie Darko' and could not resist the offer the director gave him.ITV in the United Kingdom use Moby's song \"Lift Me Up\" for their coverage of Formula One racing by using the song as the intro. and also snippets to segues for interviews and advertisements. Also, Moby had one of his older songs used in a Original HBO series, The Sopranos. This song, \"When its Cold I'd like to Die\" was used in the last scene in which Tony was in his dream state. Besides musicMoby is a vegan, non-denominational Christian and self-proclaimed \"simpleton\" (for his often sincere and idealistic political assessments). Moby lives in New York City. Until recently he co-owned a small restaurant and coffee shop called TeaNY, where he occasionally waited tables. He also organized the Little Idiot Collective, a group of artists that also includes cartoonist and musician James Kochalka. He's a huge fan of the TV series \"The Simpsons\".Moby's official website is at moby.com.ActivismMoby is a well known advocate for a variety of progressive causes, working with MoveOn.org, and PETA, among others. He created MoveOn Voter Fund's \"Bush in 30 Seconds\" contest along with singer Laura Dawn and MoveOn Executive Director Eli Pariser.He also actively engages in nonpartisan activism. He has performed benefit concerts for the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, promoting music therapy. Moby also serves on the Board of Directors of Amend.org, a nonprofit that implements injury prevention programs in Africa.He is an advocate of network neutrality and he testified before the US House committee debating the issue in 2006.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/254_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"75,000 - 150,000"}

{"key":"8371","name":"Boards of Canada","bio":"Boards of Canada are an electronic music duo from Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, formed in 1986 and comprised of brothers Mike Sandison (born 1 June 1970) and Marcus Eoin (born 21 July 1971). They have released a number of works, most notably the studio albums Music Has the Right to Children (1998), Geogaddi (2002), and The Campfire Headphase (2005) on the pioneering electronic music label Warp. Their fourth album Tomorrow's Harvest was released in June 2013.Boards of Canada have had an enormous influence on the ambient, downtempo and IDM scenes. They have frequently made reference to the warm, scratchy, artificial sounds of 1970s television. Indeed, the Sandison brothers admit to being inspired by the documentary films of the National Film Board of Canada, from which they take their name. The duo have recorded a few minor works under the name Hell Interface. Boards of Canada\u2019s music has been used in several CSI episodes and on Cartoon Network\u2019s Adult Swim interlude shorts; small bits of their music have been used on the BBC program Top Gear for transitional music.Early Boards of Canada (1970s-1995)Growing up in a musical family, brothers Mike Sandison and Marcus Eoin began playing instruments at a young age. They experimented with recording techniques at around the age of 10, using tape machines to layer cut-up samples of found sounds over compositions of their own. In their teens they participated in a number of amateur bands, however, it wasn't until 1986 when Marcus was invited to Mike\u2019s band that Boards of Canada was born.By 1989, the band had been reduced to Sandison, Eoin and Christopher Horne. In the early 1990s, a number of collaborations took place and the band put on small, fairly regular shows among the \u201cHexagon Sun\u201d collective.In early 2000, the official website for the band, Music70.com (now boardsofcanada.com) removed the early discography of Boards of Canada, although some information has been preserved by fans. Early tape releases by Boards of Canada include \"Play by Numbers\", \"Acid Memories\", \"Hooper Bay\", and the earliest known release by the band is titled \"Catalog 3\". None of the material from those days is readily available, and since official Boards of Canada sources ignore the existence of this material, there seems to be little chance for this early material to ever resurface.Boards of Canada from Twoism (1995-present)In 1995, the band released the first work from the Hexagon Sun studio, the EP \"Twoism\". Like earlier Music70 releases, it was produced in a self-financed limited run and was privately distributed, primarily to friends and labels. Unlike previous releases though, a small number of copies were also released to the public through the IDM mailing list. Though not a widespread commercial release, it was considered of such high quality to be subsequently re-pressed in 2002 and serves as a demarcation point into more professional releases.The precursor to \"Music Has the Right to Children\" was released in 1996. Titled \"Boc Maxima\", it was a semi-private release that is notable for being a full-length album. Boc Maxima\u2019s work was later used for \"Music Has the Right to Children\", with which it shares many tracks.Boards of Canada\u2019s first commercial release occurred after attracting the attention of Autechre\u2019s Sean Booth of the English label Skam Records, one of many people sent a demo EP. Skam released what was considered Boards of Canada\u2019s first \"findable\" work, \"Hi Scores\", in 1996.\"Music Has the Right to Children\" was released in 1998. Many fans consider this record to be a masterpiece. The popularity of the record was substantial enough to start a wave of sound-alikes.John Peel featured Boards of Canada on his BBC Radio 1 program in January of 1998. The session featured two remixes from \"Music Has the Right to Children\" \u2014 \"PlayAquarius (Version 3)\" and \"PlayOlson (Version 3)\" \u2014 along with the tracks \"Happy Cycling\" and \u201cXYZ\u201d. Excluding \u201cXYZ\u201d, the set was released on a Warp Records CD titled \"Peel Session TX 21\/07\/1998\".Though never an actively touring band, Boards of Canada did perform a handful of shows. Early shows saw them supporting Warp label-mates Seefeel and Autechre in a scattering of UK dates. They also participated in a few festivals and multi-artist bills, including two Warp parties: Warp\u2019s 10th Anniversary Party in 1999 and The Incredible Warp Lighthouse Party almost one year later. They made their most prominent showing in 2001 as one of the headliners at the Tortoise-curated All Tomorrow\u2019s Parties festival. They have not performed a live show since.Boards of Canada released a four-track EP, \"In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country\", in November 2000, their first original release in two years.The full-length album \"Geogaddi\" was released in 2002. It was described by Sandison as \u201da record for some sort of trial-by-fire, a claustrophobic, twisting journey that takes you into some pretty dark experiences before you reach the open air again.\u201dThroughout most of their career, Mike and Marcus chose not to publicize their brotherhood and were simply portrayed as childhood friends. Their kinship was finally revealed in a 2005 Pitchfork interview. Mike explained that they concealed the fact to avoid comparisons to Orbital, another well-known UK electronic group composed of two brothers.Their third album for Warp Records, \"The Campfire Headphase\", was released on 17 October 2005. The album covers much of the same musical territory as their previous works and featured fifteen tracks, including \u201cPeacock Tail\u201d, \u201cChromakey Dreamcoat\u201d, and \u201cDayvan Cowboy\u201d. Two versions of \u201cDayvan Cowboy\u201d \u2014 the original and a remix by Odd Nosdam \u2014 are on the six-track EP, \"Trans Canada Highway\", which was released on 26 May 2006.Sound and methodsBrief songs or \u201cvignettes\u201d feature prominently in their music. Such songs are often weaving melodies or speech accompanied by atmospherics to capture a specific moment or mood. They often last less than two minutes, but, as Sandison says, \u201cthose short tracks you mention, we write far more of those than the so-called \u2018full on\u2019 tracks, and in a way, they are our own favorites\u201d.Boards of Canada have written an enormous number of song fragments and songs, most of which will never be released. It does not appear that music is made exclusively for commercial release. Rather, albums seem to be the result of selecting complementary songs from current work, which is a compositional technique shared by many electronic or experimental artists such as Nightmares on Wax, Canabrism and King Crimson. Geogaddi\u2019s development involved the creation of 400 song fragments and 64 complete songs, of which 23 were selected, one of which is silence.Subliminal messages, symbolism, and religionMarcus and Mike have both expressed a strong interest in the power of subliminal messaging and their work is full of cryptic messages.Some critics refuse to listen to their music on account that they are positive the band is trying to brainwash their listeners for unknown motivations, citing references to David Koresh and occult symbols as proof. Others approach these facts from the skeptical angle, saying it is nothing but a bunch of \u201ccute tricks\u201d and an ironic gesture towards people who take such things seriously (and some would say, as a bit of a similar gesture towards their own body of work in later releases, such as \"Geogaddi\").","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/8371_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"8370","name":"Portishead","bio":"Portishead are a band from Bristol, United Kingdom, named after a small coastal town twelve miles west of said musical hotbed, in North Somerset. They were initially known for their use of jazz samples and some hip-hop beats along with various synth sounds and the hauntingly beautiful vocals of singer Beth Gibbons. Their current sound drops the samples in favour of a harder, more abrasive edge, but retains Gibbons' vocals.The band was formed in 1991 (then later split in 2005 reforming in 2008), by keyboardist \/ multi-instrumentalist Geoff Barrow, Adrian Utley and singer Beth Gibbons. Barrow had previously worked with Massive Attack and Tricky whilst tape operator at Coach House Studios in Clifton. He was often referred to as \"that bloke from Portishead\" and so decided to name his new musical endeavour after his hometown.\"Dummy\" (1994)After releasing a short film (To Kill A Dead Man) and its accompanying music, Portishead signed a record deal with Go! Beat and their first album, 'Dummy', was released in 1994. It featured heavy contributions from guitarist Adrian Utley. In spite of the band's media-shyness, the album gained universal critical acclaim and was successful on both sides of the Atlantic, spawning three hit singles, \"Glory Box\", \"Sour Times\" and \"Numb\". The album won the British Mercury Music Prize in 1995 beating albums such as Definitely Maybe by Oasis and Leftfield's Leftism. \"Portishead\" (1997)Their second album, 'Portishead', was released in 1997, and featured the single \"All Mine\". A live album featuring new orchestral arrangements of the group's songs was recorded primarily at Roseland in New York City and released in 1998, as well as a DVD of the Roseland concert.In 2002, Gibbons collaborated on a separate solo project with Paul Webb, or Rustin' Man. The album, 'Out of Season', was released in the UK in October 2002, and a year later was released in the U.S.In the time between 'Portishead' and 'Third', Portishead collaborated with singer Tom Jones for a track on his album 'Reload', and also covered Serge Gainsbourg's \"Un Jour Comme Un Autre\" (\"Requiem for Anna\") in 2006 on the tribute album 'Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited'.The band appeared live for the first time in seven years at the 2005 Tsunami Benefit Concert in Bristol. Also in 2005, Utley and Barrow produced The Coral's 'The Invisible Invasion'. Barrow along with Utley, Clive Deamer and John Baggott also assisted with the production of Stephanie McKay's 'McKay' album in 2003 under the Go!Beat label. Utley also contributed to the 'Black Cherry' album by Goldfrapp.In December 2007, Portishead hosted the ATP Nightmare before Christmas party. Portishead played live on both nights of the festival. The set included 4 new tracks from their then-upcoming new album. Video recordings of Portishead ATP performance can be found on YouTube. \"Third\" (2008) Portishead's long awaited third album simply titled 'Third' was released at the end of April 2008 to coincide with Coachella, where they were headlining. The first single, 'Machine Gun', was released on April 14 as a 12\" vinyl. It was made available on (your very own) Last.fm one week before release. In 2009 Geoff Barrow produced the second album Primary Colours by The Horrors.In 2015, Portishead headlined at Latitude Festival in UK on July 18th.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/8370_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"1968","name":"M83","bio":"M83 is the rock and electronic music project of the French artist Anthony Gonzalez. He and former member Nicolas Fromageau founded the group in 2001 in Antibes, France. M83's style owes a lot to the shoegaze genre, in that there is much emphasis on tonality, extensive use of reverb effects and often softly-spoken lyrics at times submerged in instrumentation. M83 was named after the spiral galaxy \"Messier 83\". M83 has released the following albums: M83 in 2001, Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts in 2003, Before the Dawn Heals Us in 2005, Digital Shades Vol. 1 in 2007, Saturdays = Youth in 2008, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming in 2011, Oblivion and You and the Night in 2013.For the third album released by M83, Before the Dawn Heals Us, Gonzalez decided to part from Fromageau (after an emotionally distressing tour for Dead Cities). Currently Anthony Gonzalez records mainly on his own(Nicolas Fromageau started Team Ghost in 2009), often with the help of his brother Yann Gonzalez, vocalist\/keyboardist Morgan Kibby, guitarist\/bassist Pierre-Marie Maulini, and drummer Lo\u00efc Maurin.M83 produced the remix of the track \"Pioneers\" on the British rock group Bloc Party's 2005 album Silent Alarm Remixed. M83 also collaborated with other Gooom Disques artists in a collaborative LP, under the name Purple Confusion.Just after the Before the Dawn Heals Us US tour, Anthony Gonzalez decided to take M83 in a more ambient direction (as heard on some earlier M83 tracks) and started to write and record a collection of ambient works. The relevance of digital music (from creation to sharing), gave him the idea to call the project Digital Shades Vol. 1, and to make the album part of an ongoing series. M83's 2008 album Saturdays = Youth, released on Mute, was recorded with the help of Ken Thomas and Ewan Pearson. Four singles were released from the album: \"Couleurs\" in February 2008, \"Graveyard Girl\" in April, \"Kim & Jessie\" in July, and \"We Own the Sky\" in December.In December 2008, M83 supported Kings of Leon on its UK tour. In January and February 2009, M83 supported The Killers across USA tour dates and toured with Depeche Mode on its Tour of the Universe in Italy, Germany, and France.The double album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming was released on 17th October 2011, through Na\u00efve, produced by Justin Meldal-Johnson (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp) and including contributions from Zola Jesus, Brad Laner (from 90's band Medicine) on guitar, and the vocalist Morgan Kibby. The album was preceded by the track \"Midnight City\" released in July 2011.Official site: http:\/\/www.ilovem83.com","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/1968_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"98351","name":"Tantrum Desire","bio":"A south east London based duo, who met in 2004 at a small pirate radio station through the love of drum & bass music. Before that time these individuals had portfolios in their chosen fields, which were producing and DJ\u2019ing. These talented artists then began working together towards their common goal, which was to break into the drum & bass scene.Experimenting and striving for constant perfection: Jay (Producer \/ DJ) and Devon (DJ) under the name Tantrum Desire , have continued their promotion campaign and expedition, appearing on internet radio shows such as, Kunninmindz, Planet dnb, UK Rumble and Kool FM.In 2005, a bunch of Tantrum Desire tracks on a load of CD\u2019s was passed out in Spain at a big drum & bass event. This then attracted Nu-Breed\u2019s - MC Shortston, who received a copy of the track collection and saw a spark in the production. This gave him some ideas and business plans to start up a new label called \u2018Heavyweight Records\u2019. This was the new home label for the boys, which released tracks such as, The Red Pill, Dreamscape EP, The Inner moon and White light, which had constant air play on radio stations such as 1xtra, Radio 1 and Kiss. Tantrum Desire also had bootleg projects lying around in the lab, which gave Shortston another idea to accompany Heavyweight with a bootleg label named \u201cBooty\u201d. This brought you releases such as, \u201cTransformers\u201d, \u201cJealousy\u201d, \u201cdrop it like its hot\u201d and \u201cCan\u2019t stop\u201d.In early 2008, Tantrum Desire was approached by one of the biggest pioneers in the game \u2013 Simon \u2018Bassline\u2019 Smith, who saw the variety of styles in the drum & bass productions and therefore became interested. This led him to making the guys an offer and signing them exclusively to his well established label - Technique Recordings. Straight away, Technique released Tantrum Desire\u2019s debut 12\u201d - \u201cXenomorph & the Last stand, which set their trademark in the scene for the sound of big baseline synths and orchestral intro\u2019s. Soon after, the boys featured in the award winning Knowledge Magazine, which gave an insight of the T.D team and a warning to the public that the guys would be bringing dance floor smashers on a constant level. Early 2009 brought to your ears the sound of \u201cCrazy Talk & Strength\u201d on Techniques sister label\u2019 World Wide Audio Recordings. This synth\u2019tastic release received great feedback and support from pioneers such as Grooverider, Jumping Jack Frost, Zane Lowe, Hype, Ray Keith and many more.Read more: http:\/\/www.myspace.com\/tantrumdesire#ixzz15NwyHSJG","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/98351_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

An order by which they intend us to follow. With this project we suggest that we need our own order. Our own plan needs to be made so we can battle against the inevitable future3.

{"key":"6123","name":"Kylie Minogue","bio":"Kylie Minogue (born May 28, 1968, in Melbourne, Australia) is an Australian pop singer who rose to fame after starring in the Australian TV soap Neighbours. Whilst her cover of The Loco-Motion in 1987 reached the Australian #1 spot, it was the Stock Aitken Waterman 'hit factory' which produced her first UK chart-topper, I Should Be So Lucky, in 1988. Throughout the late 1980s, Minogue was a phenomenon in both Australia and the UK, and also saw success in Asia and Europe.Minogue went on to have the most number of consecutive UK top ten hits of any new artist. However, she left Stock Aitken Waterman and PWL Studios in 1992 and signed with Deconstruction (through BMG). Her next single, \"Confide in Me\", reached number one in Australia and was a hit in several European countries in 1994, and a duet with Nick Cave, \"Where the Wild Roses Grow\", brought Minogue a greater degree of artistic credibility. Drawing inspiration from a range of musical styles and artists, Minogue took creative control over the songwriting for her next album, Impossible Princess (1997). Parting ways with Deconstruction, she spent a short time in the musical wilderness before pulling on a pair of gold hotpants and returning to her pop roots with the #1 hit Spinning Around. Her music videos showed a more sexually provocative and flirtatious personality and several hit singles followed.Minogue's biggest hit to date is Can't Get You Out Of My Head, from the globally successful album Fever. It reached #1 in 40 countries, including the US, a market in which Minogue had previously received little recognition and has sold over ten million copies worldwide. She has become one of the most successful female recording artists in the world with #1 hits spanning three decades, and is considered a national treasure in both the UK and her native Australia.In 2005, midway through her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour, Minogue was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer, causing her to halt the Australian leg of her tour. The news shocked both fans and non-fans alike, and the 'Kylie effect' was felt by breast cancer charities - both in terms of donations and the upsurge of queries from concerned women of all ages. Through her personal suffering, Minogue had inadvertently increased global awareness of breast cancer issues. After successfully coming through a tough twelve-month battle with the disease, in early July 2006 Minogue announced rescheduled dates of her now renamed Showgirl: The Homecoming Tour - fulfilling her Australian dates with a concert on November 11, 2006 in Sydney, along with extra dates, taking the updated show back to London and Manchester in January 2007.Although now more prominent in music, Minogue makes an occasional return to acting - her most recent project being her well-publicized appearance alongside David Tennant in the Doctor Who Christmas 2007 episode, \"Voyage Of The Damned\".On November 12, 2007 Minogue released the single 2 Hearts which reached #4 in the UK chart, and which also peaked at #1 in Australia. The album it was from, X, earned her a BRIT Award nomination for Best International Album. The album saw her collaborate with many writers and producers including the Freemasons and Calvin Harris. The following year, Minogue won the Best International Female Solo Artist award at the 2008 BRIT Awards, and in May also received the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, France's highest cultural honor.On December 1, 2008, Coldplay released \"Lhuna\", a collaborative project with Minogue, at the launch of the (RED)WIRE\u2122 website to mark World AIDS Day 2008. This would be the world premiere of the song.Minogue's tenth studio album, X, received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Electronic\/Dance Album of 2009. It was her fifth Grammy Award nomination.In 2010,Minogue released her 11th studio album titled Aphrodite,preceeded by the hit single All the Lovers,one of her most succesful singles to date.With Aphrodite,Minogue became the first female artist ever to have #1 albums on the UK charts for 4 consecutive decades.In 2011,she embarked on the Les Folies Tour,which travelled to 5 continents,and was seen by over 600,000 fans worldwide. Minogue made history in the United States for having two songs inside the top three on any U.S. Billboard chart, with her songs \"Better Than Today\" and \"Higher\" charting at one and three on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs.Minogue is celebrating her 25th anniversary in the music industry in 2012. Timebomb was released by Minogue as a single to coincide with the celebration of the singer\u2019s quarter century in the music business. The Timebomb Songfacts reports that the song was dropped on May 25, 2012, two months short of twenty-five years after her debut single, a cover of little Eva\u2019s The Locomotion. Minogue also released the compilation album, The Abbey Road Sessions in October 2012. The album contained reworked and orchestral versions of her previous songs. It was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios and was produced by Steve Anderson and Colin Elliot. The album received favourable reviews from music critics and it debuted at number-two in the United Kingdom. The album spawned two singles, \"Flower\" and \"On a Night Like This\".Minogue also starred in two films; a cameo appearance in the American independent film Jack & Diane and a lead role in the French film Holy Motors. Jack & Diane opened at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival on 20 April 2012, while Holy Motors opened at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. In January 2013, Minogue and her manager Terry Blamey, whom she had worked with since the start of her musical beginnings, parted ways. The following month, she was signed to Roc Nation for a management deal. Minogue is currently recording on her twelfth studio album since the spring of 2012. The upcoming album is reported to feature works from producers such as Fernando Garibay, Pharrell Williams, Darkchild, Sia, Nervo and Jay-Z.In September, she was featured on Italian singer-songwriter Laura Pausini's single \"Limpido\", which was a number-one hit in Italy and has received a nomination for \"World's Best Song\" at the 2013 World Music Awards. In the same month, she joined as a coach in the third series of BBC One's talent competition The Voice UK for one season, alongside record producer and Black Eyed Peas member, will.i.am, Kaiser Chiefs' lead singer Ricky Wilson and pop singer Sir Tom Jones. Minogue's first episode on the show as a judge aired on 11 January 2014. In November, she was hired as one of the new coaches for the third season of The Voice Australia.In March 2014, Minogue released her 12th studio album, Kiss Me Once. The album featured contributions from Sia Furler, Mike Del Rio, Cutfather, Pharell Williams, MNEK and Ariel Rechtshaid. It peaked at number one in Australia and number two in the United Kingdom. The singles from the album, \"Into the Blue\" and \"I Was Gonna Cancel\", did not chart inside the top ten of the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 12 and number 59.In September 2014, Minogue will embark on the Kiss Me Once Tour. She is also set to appear in the upcoming 2015 disaster film, San Andreas alongside Dwayne Johnson.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6123_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"500,000 - 1,000,000"}

{"key":"7624","name":"Foals","bio":"Foals are a rock band which formed in Oxford, England in 2005. The band consists of Yannis Philippakis (vocals, guitar), Jimmy Smith (guitar), Walter Gervers (bass), Edwin Congreave (keyboards) and Jack Bevan (drums). The band has released four albums: \"Antidotes\" (2008), \"Total Life Forever\" (2010), \"Holy Fire\" (2013) and \"What Went Down\" (2015).The band was formed in 2005 by Philippakis and Bevan, both former members of math rock band The Edmund Fitzgerald, and Andrew Mears of Youthmovies. Mears left the band after their first single to focus on Youthmovies.In early 2007, the band released the limited edition 7\" singles Hummer and Mathletics, both produced by Gareth Parton. In the summer of 2007 Foals began working on their debut album in New York. It was produced by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, however, the band decided to mix the album themselves, stating that Sitek made the first master copy of the album sound like \"it was recorded in the Grand Canyon\". Yannis has stated multiple times during various interviews that Foals and Dave Sitek are on good terms, even though the copy by Sitek was rejected by the band. Foals released their debut album, entitled Antidotes, on 24 March 2008 in the UK and 8 April 2008 in the US. The album was a commercial success in the United Kingdom, debuting at No. 3 in the UK Albums Charts. The album was a minor success in other countries, charting in Japan, France and the Netherlands. Non-UK versions of the album include the early Parton produced singles.In August 2009, Foals started recording their second album at Svenska Grammofon Studion in Gothenburg, Sweden. The album, Total Life Forever, has been described by the band members as sounding like \"tropical prog\" and \"like the dream of an eagle dying\". The band have described the album as being \"a lot less funk\" than they had originally planned. The album was produced by Luke Smith, formerly of Clor, and its title is named after an element of Ray Kurzweil's theory of singularity. The band's frontman Yannis Philippakis has professed a long time interest in futurology, with it informing numerous songs on Total Life Forever.On 1 March 2010, the promotional single \"Spanish Sahara\" was first played on Zane Lowe's show Radio 1. Foals' new website was updated that night with the release of a video for the track directed by longtime collaborator Dave Ma. On 6 March, the Total Life Forever site was officially launched. Puzzles revealed images, lyrics and sound clips of songs from the album. The last clip appeared on 12 March, and resulted with a password entry for the Foals' new website. The site was opened on 13 March and presented the whole new art concept and media including samples of songs, photos and videos. Lead single \"This Orient\" was released on 3 May 2010. The album was finally released on 10 May 2010. \"Spanish Sahara\" was later released as a full physical single in September 2010, featuring an edited remix starring the strings of London Contemporary Orchestra. The album was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize.http:\/\/foals.co.uk","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/7624_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"20,000 - 50,000"}
