Lafayette Street Records

Lafayette Street Records

Originated in 2014, Lafayette Street Records is the brainchild of Cortney Callanan, former label manager of Star69 Records, and partner Igor “Iggy” Kisil, the Billboard-charting creative genius known as Sweet Rains (and of Sweet Rains Records.) Together, they hand-picked key individuals from their networks of industry powerhouses and selected an accolade-heavy all-star team, which includes former execs from: Subliminal Records; Ultra Records; Sony Music; and award-winning independent publicity and marketing companies.

LFS Records is based on the essence of real dance music and a marketing machine feeding it to those who hunger and thirst for it. The LFS Records team is comprised of executives who ran this town during dance music’s peak, and fresh minds longing for this sound. “Our team is made up of people who were influential when that big room vocal-house sound was infectious, commandeering dance floors all over the world,” says Callanan. “Our common goal is to reinstate the house music that once was and have it regain its rightful place: topping charts and initiating a new generation to the power of lyrics and melodies.” Says Kisil, “We’re bringing innovative records with a nostalgic feel.”

The resulting company, Lafayette Street Records, is an exciting and colorfully-explosive musical powerhouse that pays homage to where Callanan got her start in SoHo – Star 69 Records, at 199 Lafayette Street. This is the reincarnation of dance music; big room sound, “hands-in-the-air,” larger-than-life vocals that everyone knows the words to. Feel good crowd-chanting dance music at its finest.

Shine On Hollywood Magazine 2-YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Shine On Hollywood Magazine 2-YEAR ANNIVERSARY JULY-AUGUST 2014

SOHM 2-Year Anniversary July-August 2014:
http://shineonhollywoodmagazine.com/shinejulyaugust2014/web/flipviewerxpress.html

Dear Readers:

Here we are. Year number two!

It’s been exciting and revealing and more than I could have ever imagined. The outpouring of love and support from everyone has been overwhelming.
This last year was bursting with amazing stories of struggles and triumphs from successful artists in many disciplines. We had the amazing story of World-renowned artist Cao Young who overcame soul crushing adversity and has become one of the most sought-after artists of our time. His cover photo even appeared on the NASDAQ building in world-famous Times Square, NYC.

Another example of someone who overcame huge challenges as a child with nowhere to go and no one to look after him is Rocky Gathercole. His rise to the top of the fashion world is a stellar achievement to say the least.

June’s issue featured the work of Yoshiki, an amazing, award-winning musician, writer, producer and manager who has taken the world by storm. The tragic death of his father when he was just ten years old changed his path as he continued to learn all aspects of the music business. His trajectory has been nothing but stellar and is the most popular artist in Asia and soon, all corners of the globe.

It’s amazing how many successful artists come from troubled childhoods. Our goal is to highlight their successes to encourage the rest of us to triumph over adversity and help the up and coming entertainment professionals find their way.

Our reach is global, from shore to shore. Just like what is represented in the beautiful painting of the Santa Monica Pier by Angelo Garcia on the front cover, our shores welcome all creative artists from around the globe.

We have featured 42 industry professionals in the past year and have done our best to showcase celebrities you will easily recognize along with lesser know, yet equally successful entertainment personalities. They are all doing the good work and giving back to their communities. People like producer, Bobby DeLeon who works behind the scenes with some very powerful people. He is one of the unsung heroes for those less fortunate.

Then, there is the very visible and highly regarded, Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly. Growing up in Egypt and proving herself over and over again, she has become one of the true voices of the entertainment business with two times at the helm of the Hollywood Foreign Press-the people who put on the Golden Globes. She embodies the true meaning of our mission statement:

We are dedicated to providing a positive, meaningful and educational experience and to inspire our readers with knowledge and information from creative, qualified industry professionals.

We have so many exciting additions to the magazine ahead. We are working on a live webcast which will be highlighting all the good in the entertainment industry just like the magazine does. The show will feature guests in the spotlight and those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make the magic happen. They will be sharing their journeys as well as advice about how you can start or continue your journey in the entertainment field. These will include all the disciplines we include in our magazine: Film, TV, music, art, Fashion, Ethnic diversity and anything else we feel will help our readers. This will help all of our viewers learn how they can excel in the business and give back to their community where it is most needed.

It has always been and will always continue to be my goal to use a variety of formats to spread the word about all the good that is happening in the entertainment industry. Not just in Hollywood, but around the world as well. We, at SOHM, feel like our readers are ready for the good news about celebrities and successful entertainment professionals and are ready to discard all the gossip and politics and negative stories that flood the world today. That is why we are growing at such an unbelievable rate across the globe.

We will be having some fun and exciting contests to enter to win some great prizes. Stay tuned to find out more about that!

Also, we are working on a weekly blog for our subscribers. Are you a subscriber? The magazine will continue to be a free publication, but subscribers will have access to additional material and information. Sign up today so you can get the monthly issues emailed directly to you.

We continue to present our Share Your Shine, Tell Your Story segment. If you or anyone you know is giving back to the Arts or Pop Culture Community or any great cause and would like to share your or their story with our readers, please do not hesitate to send us these important stories so we can share your shine with our readers and viewers.

One of these stories we are featuring this month is the great work being done for at-risk youth with the Nicholas Walters Youth Foundation, NWYF. Headed up by Nicholas Silvio Walters and Elie Cane who work with youth in mentoring programs to guide these kids who don’t have the support at home every young person needs. Look for their stories inside and for donation information.

Don’t forget that you can go back through these last two years and read any of the archived issues, see the stories and gain that much more insight into the entertainment and philanthropic businesses.

Lastly, I would like to take a moment to thank my staff. Their tireless efforts to bring the stories to you, the readers, make this magazine and all its parts what it is today. The interviews, entertainment reviews and all the other pieces that make up Shine On Hollywood Magazine are due to a group effort where we support, encourage and heap praise on each other for continued jobs that are exceedingly well done.
I am excited about our third year and all that is in store for our readers and, soon, our viewers.

Next month, we will be featuring Music professionals where, as always, we feature players from major studios right alongside the important work and creative projects by independent, or “Indi” production companies.

Stay tuned and let us know how you think we are doing.

Enjoy reading!

YOSHIKI Golden Globe Theme Interview and Preview

Yoshiki Classical – behind the scenes

Welcome to the May issue of Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM).

Shine On Hollywood Magazine

Dear Readers:

Welcome to the May issue of Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM).

As the “May Days” are upon us, the summer party season is just starting to appear on the horizon. When thinking of all the events ahead, we have to ask the age-old question: What will I wear?

Although there are legions of clothing and jewelry designers in the world, we have sorted through them and decided on a line-up that is sure to impress any fashion follower. Not just designing a dress, gown or the jewelry to complete the look, these artists have gone beyond the usual and take us into their world of extraordinary. What does it take to be able to visualize a creation which has never been imagined before? How do these artists even get started on such an ambitious journey of fashion and beauty? Read on and you will see examples of the how and why these designers have risen to the tops of their fields.

Our cover story highlights the career of designer, Rocky Gathercole. Rocky started from very humble and challenging surroundings in his native country of the Philippines. Having virtually no support as a child, he scraped his way through this, often times, unforgiving world we live in. He knew in the back of his mind and in his heart he had something to contribute to this world. This young man sought out ways to use his talents to get him out of abject poverty to where he is today showing his extraordinary collections all around the globe.

Another fashion superstar from the Philippines, Albert Andrada, loves to take the human form to another level, be it female or male. Playing with shapes and styles, he creates silhouettes that have been described as visionary and forward-thinking. Ball gowns, bead work and wedding gowns are just part of everyday life for Andrada who, returning home from the Middle East designing for royalty has created his own fashion house in the Philippines.

Featured designer, Kathryn Hynes, made the transition from former interior designer and full-time mom, to celebrated fashion designer. It’s always a heart-wrenching decision whether to stay home with the kids or continue to work and catch special moments when you can, which can make them even more special, or put your career on hold for the kids-if you can. Kathryn is a shining example of how to re-join the work force and, especially, the design world after stepping back for years and shine like a diamond.

Very few outfits are complete without the all-important jewels; necklaces, earrings and cuffs. Lovingly referred to as statement pieces since a woman can’t walk into a room without every head turning in her direction, Joe Vilaiwan designs jewelry that stops traffic. Taking the vibrant colors and textures from his native Thailand, his pieces have adorned the necks, ears and wrists of royalty and celebrities the world over.

We encourage you to “Let them be your motivation.” SOHM remains a politics and gossip free publication with its focus on, Real People, Real Stories, from the Arts and Pop Culture Community who make a difference by giving back, and we are delighted to share their heart-felt stories with you. We will continue to provide the industry’s foremost creative meeting place with monthly showcases, news, opinions, analysis, and audience feedback.

The upcoming June issue will feature an emphasis on the world of Asian, Pacific and Hispanic. Look for exclusive interviews with leading industry professionals. We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to your feedback and continued support!

Enjoy,

Arnold Garcia
