We are now nearing the mid-point of the year, at or near the end of the school year, and past the mid-point of the football offseason (much to my wife’s dismay). It certainly feels like everything is based on cycles and timelines and how they intertwine—in the music business it’s album releases and tours and the coordination of it all. And like anything else, there is far more that goes into all of this behind the scenes than you might realize. But in order to keep all of us in the music biz chugging along behind those scenes, here is what you can do—consume and enjoy all the great music out there—the music that provides a soundtrack to your summer. Have a great month of June everyone!

New clients/Upcoming releases

JD Malone After nearly a quarter of a century spent making music, Philly based JD Malone has learned to follow his muse and not question the source of his inspiration. Town and Country, the latest album by J.D. Malone and The Experts, is an auspicious, insightful and truly exceptional set of songs. It intermingles fierce sentiment with riveting hooks, anthemic refrains and melodies that resonate with arena-size intensity. Overseen by Malone and veteran producer/musician Cliff Hillis, Town and Country features some of Malone’s most compelling songs yet. www.jdmalone.com
