Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom single “Midnight Mayhem” For Your Consideration at the 59th Grammy Awards

“Battle Metal” Band in the Hunt for The Group’s First-Ever Grammy Nom Nod on Domo Music Group

Fiddle Witch

 

Houston, Texas (October 20, 2016) – Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom is currently rounding up supporters for the group’s single “Midnight Mayhem,” which is in contention for a coveted Grammy Award nomination.

“Midnight Mayhem,” released by Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom on June 10, 2016, delivers an innovative, melodic and powerful blend of classical, world and metal music. The track was produced and engineered by Ulrich Wild at The Wilderness. Wild, who recorded the Deftones’ Grammy winner, “Elite,” as well as other tracks by perennial Grammy favorites Jane’s Addiction and Pantera, believes Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom is in a class all by itself.

“In Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom, you have a once in a generation situation where a debut artist comes out ready from day one and fearlessly conquers new ground,” says Wild. “As a producer there are few situations as rewarding and exciting as being able to deliver something new to the public. ‘Midnight Mayhem’ is the ultimate marriage of classical and metal and world styles. There is no real precedent for Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom; they are truly one of a kind and a joy to work with. I am very proud of the band and very proud of this track.” See more on producer Ulrich Wild at www.ulrichwild.com.

About the Grammy Contending track: Co-written by band members Jo Bird (electric viola), Geoffrey Muller (bass and strings) and SPIKE the Percussionist, and featuring a special performance by guest vocalist, Jesse Lynn Madera, “Midnight Mayhem” reflects Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom’s collaborative spirit, unique instrumentation and sound. The band received raves and accolades as winners of the Houston Press Music Award for the Best New Act of 2015 http://fiddlewitch.com/. The considered single, “Midnight Mayhem,” was released on the heels of the band’s recently inked contract with Domo Music Group. “Domo has been great,” says SPIKE. “And the opportunity to work with Ulrich was a dream come true. He pushed us through this sonic adventure and really got the best out of us.”

Bird says the band was leaving rehearsal when they received the news of Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom’s listing for their Grammy consideration. “I had to pinch myself,” she laughs. “We worked very hard to get here and the guys and I are thrilled by both the recognition and the overwhelming support we’ve received from music fans all over the world. It is an honor and a privilege to be in contention for a Grammy Award, particularly for a new band.”

The final Grammy nominations will be announced December 6th, 2016.

Aman Ryusuke Seto’s Album “Miroku” Released Today!

MIROKU_CD_JACKET-2

Aman Ryusuke Seto’s album, Miroku is now available on iTunes Store.

Just as the Japanese Baseball superstar Ichiro dreamed of playing in the Major Leagues, Aman went to America with just a dream. His big break came when his band from Japan, “East” passed an audition for the famed club, “The Troubadour” in Santa Monica, the same venue in which Elton John played his first American concert. The legendary West Hollywood nightspot has played host to Carole King, James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, and Carly Simon.

On the day of the audition, many of the major labels were there scouting for new artists. “East” brought the house down, and soon thereafter was offered contracts by three labels. Their first album titled “East”, placed in the top 10 — with Elton John!

Ryusuke went on to study under Seiji Ozawa, Tohru Takemitsu and world famous Japanese Biwa (lute) player Kinshi Tsuruta. He released the albums, “567”,“KEGON”,”Water Song”,”Ho’oponopono Song” and ”DAWN”.

Later, Aman found that he wasn’t satisfied with what he felt was being bound too tightly by the music industry, so he started his own business. He then went on to create his own recording studio (which was always another one of his dreams) and now he is standing at a new starting point.

Aman Ryusuke Seto is always pursuing a “New Frontier”.

Kitaro New Release “Tenku (Remastered)” Now On Sale with a Special Price!

KITARO_TENKU_CD_BOOK_04+01

Marking the 30th anniversary of its debut, this reissue of Kitaro’s critically acclaimed album “Tenku” has been newly remastered from the original source tapes.

“Tenku”, which translated means “Heavenly Sky”, refers to time spent at his 200-year-old farmhouse in the Japanese Alps, where the album was recorded. Drawing inspiration and his impressions of nature at that time, Kitaro remarked, “Through communicating with nature, I wish to always make music that reflects the warmth that we should have as humans.”

The album became a defining moment in Kitaro’s career, which soon afterwards became his first conceptual album that introduced him to an international audience.

For what is certainly an otherworldly experience; Tenku is a collection of dreamy compositions full of soft Japanese melodies with a hint of melancholy. Kitaro’s immaculate synthesizer technique produces a nuanced yet bold atmosphere that is truly one of a kind.

Track List
01.  Tenku
02.  Romance
03.  Wings
04.  Aura
05.  Message From The Cosmos
06.  Time Traveller
07.  Legend Of The Road
08.  Milky Way

Now, we are offering a special discounted price of $9.99 for CD!

Shamisen Rockers the Yoshida Brothers Love Kubo and the Two Strings!

kubo-and-the-two-strings-movie-banner-01-600x350

With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.

Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of Game of Thrones) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Hashi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) and Kameyo (Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.

 

Now, we are offering special sales for Yoshida Brothers CDs!

YOSHIDA_BROTHERS_IBUKI_BOOK_COVERIBUKI

btn-buynow

reg. $15.98  NOW $4.98

Originally released in 1999, the Yoshida Brothers’ debut album Ibuki, is getting a well-deserved re-release from Domo, marking the first time it has been available in the U.S. market. When originally released, the disc sold over 100,000 copies—an incredible feat, since up to that point most tsugaru-shamisen recordings rarely sold more than a thousand copies in Japan. The album features mostly traditional tsugaru-shamisen songs, though hints of the Brothers’ signature style are starting to emerge. From the very beginning, it was clear that the group was bringing this ancient three-stringed instrument into modern times, interpreting its sound for a contemporary audience. This disc deservedly turned the Yoshida Brothers into rock stars in their native land, another rarity for tsugaru-shamisen instrumentalists. Take a listen to where the journey began.

 

YOSHIDA_BROTHERS_MOVE_BOOK_COVERMOVE

btn-buynow

reg. $15.98  NOW $4.98

The brothers began to spread their wings with their follow-up, Move (2000). This re-release of their groundbreaking second album represents the first time this album has been issued in the U.S. It features more original compositions than its predecessor and shows the brothers expanding their musical horizons, incorporating a variety of instruments beyond the tsugaru-shamisen and exploring numerous disparate musical influences. One song features the otsuzumi, a small taiko (Japenese drum), while three songs showcase a cajon—an Afro-Peruvian hand drum popular in Spanish flamenco music since the 1980s. The release of Move proved that Ibuki was no fluke and that the Yoshida Brothers, despite their youth, were capable of producing musical masterpieces that bridged the sounds of old and new Japan. Using the traditional tsugaru-shamisen in a contemporary manner, the Yoshida Brothers produced an original sound that distinguished them as true musical visionaries.

Offer will expire on August 31st.
