Lafayette Street Records

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!

New single from featured on on ABC Jan 14 at 9pm CST visit

https://twitter.com/delcastilloband/status/420984755803258880

DEL CASTILLO began as a CD project for family back in the winter of 2000 and has become a symbol of the cross-cultural power of music with their eclectic blend of Flamenco, Rock, Latin, Blues, and World music.

Between the release of their first CD, Brothers of the Castle back in 2001, to their 2006 release, Brotherhood, Del Castillo has received an astonishing 18 awards including SXSW/Austin Music “Album of the Year” Awards for Vida (2002) and Brotherhood (2006), “Band of the Year (2003)”, ASCAP’S “Best Independent Group of the Year (2005)”, and Austin Music Pundits “Best Live Act (2004)”.

Rolling Stone calls Del Castillo “tumbling brilliance on nylon-string classical guitars” with “eruptions of technique and taste (that) conjure images of Eddie Van Halen fronting early Santana (with an assist from the Gipsy Kings).

Film Director Robert Rodriguez attended a Del Castillo concert in 2002 and a great friendship developed between the two. Rodriguez then enlisted the group to contribute music to the soundtracks of his movies, such as “Spy Kids 3D”, “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”,“Sin City”, and “GRINDHOUSE”, and perform with him at the premieres. Rodriguez was so impressed with Del Castillo that he wanted to record with them, so together, they formed CHINGON and recorded an amazing electric rendition of the Mexican classic song, “Malaguena Salerosa”. Quentin Tarantino loved it so much that he re-did the ending sequence of “Kill Bill Vol. II” to fit the song into his movie.

By 2004, Del Castillo was touring nationwide across the country playing with such diverse acts as Styx, Los Lonely Boys, Ozomatli, Don Henley, Los Lobos, and Willie Nelson and continued tour non-stop through 2006. They have performed at three of Willie Nelson’s 4th Of July Picnics, and at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival, and they have made numerous national and local TV appearances.

Willie Nelson enjoyed Del Castillo so much that he re-recorded his song “I Never Cared For You” with the group (which is included on Del Castillo’s Brotherhood CD) and calls it “his favorite version”. Nelson has become a good friend of the band as well and the two look forward to touring together again soon.

During 2008, the band began playing major festivals all over the country and even Canada and widening its audience at a much more rapid rate. At California’s famous Strawberry Music Festival, they were deemed the highlight of the festival and broke the merchandise sales record. Immediately after their incendiary debut performance at the Vancouver Folk Festival in Canada, they were selected to play the headlining stage for 2009.

Rick and Mark del Castillo were recently selected in December 2008, by Gibson Global, to be two of only about SIX guitarists in the world to launch their new state-of the-art Dark Fire Gibson Les Paul guitar line.

The band continues to tour throughout the country, thriving on performing live and building new audiences, and songwriting and recording are a priority during breaks in their tour schedule.
