About Me

Jim Whitman

 

Jim Whitman has been enjoying great popularity in the United Kingdom for many years. He has an impressive list of albums to his credit and is a Prolific songwriter.

 

Jim has grew up listening to the sounds of the 50's and 60's and was inspired to take up the guitar when he heard the great songs of Elton Britt, Kenny Roberts, and of course of Slim Whitman.

 

Jim's voice has a wide range and an expressiveness which many singers find it hard to achieve.He also discovered early on,to his delight, that he too could yodel.You don't learn to yodel, it just comes naturally. It then has to be groomed,practiced and tailored to perfection.

 

Jim certainly has nurtured that sweet, smooth yodel over the years and it is a high spot on his live performances.

 

Many artists through the years have modeled themselves on famous Stars of Country Music but Jim is his own man and a big talent on his own right. He has established himself as a singer, performer and songwriter with an abundance of self determination.

 

With a string of successful albums behind him, scores of full houses wherever he appears, Jim Whitman has certainly earned his place in Country Music history.

 

An ever expanding repertoire ranging from traditional to modern country and a wide range of his own very successful Irish ballads are always in demand.

About Me

I am a French artist and I like the music since my adolescence. I began the learning of music by following numerous courses of guitar in several schools and academies

I attended class of particular theory of music and harmony for 5 years, to the music school Paul Beuscher of Paris.

Then, I stopped the guitar and the music during 11 years for 1985 in 1996. I have some music in my head all the time since my childhood, the music is so strong that I am obliged to create and to compose to empty my head. It not ya no musicians in my family, thus I think that the music is my vocation.

That is why, I bought a digital piano in 1997 and during 10 years, I created, composed, played and orchestrated 10 pieces of instrumental music, it is in self-taught.

I joined at home these 10 pieces on an entitled CD: supernova. My musical style gets closer to that of the Jean-Michel Jarre, Giorgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream and could be also classified in the style soundtrack of films.

I look for market my music in a record label, cinema, television, advertising or video games.


You can listen my songs on my website Néant Rouge on Myspace :

About Me

ORLY VARDY'S MUSICAL BACKGROUND & PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

I started to sing from the age of 10 months old – My Mother had found me singing a famous Hebrew song and she knew that I would one day become a singer. At the age of 12 I started to take vocal lessons taught by some of the greatest teachers here in Israel. I have a Soprano singing voice. I am known in Israel as "The singer with the gentle voice”. I am involved with a large recording studio here in Israel called "Agasim Sound Studios” ('Pear Music Productions') which is run by the musician Ofer Hamerman & his partner Golan Shachar, they are also co-owners the first Israeli internet TV channel known as “Clip TV”. I have released 3 Cd’s with all original songs in Hebrew & I also have several original songs in English all with the music production by the musician and composer Ofer Hamerman, who is also my music manager. My repertoire also includes well known songs in English and in the Hebrew languages. I regularly perform in several concert venues around Israel. I also have a number of songs that I have composed & also wrote the lyrics for. A song of ours called 'I'm All Yours' was recognized as 'an entry of merit' in the 2003 Unisong international competition in the U.S.A. Another song that I wrote the lyrics for called 'Keep on moving', with music composed by Ofer Hamerman, was chosen as one of the top 20 songs in the Dance/Electronic song category in the 2005-2006 “Unisong” international competition in the U.S.A. Also, in the same competition, my latest release "See the stars tonight" (lyrics by Paul R. Thomas / composer, instrumental & music production by Ofer Hamerman) was chosen to be in the top 20 of the HONORABLE SONGS at the Balled category in year 2009. I have also performed a number of concerts in France, at Toulouse, Marseille & Nice which were very successful. I was interviewed there by a popular French radio station after which they played an original song of mine on air. I have also been interviewed by a popular music station here in Israel after which they also broadcasted a number of my songs. I have also performed on the Russian TV channel & also recently on the Romanian TV channel "Antena1" on the "Duminica in familie" family entertainment show with Michaella Radulescu, as well as here on Israeli TV on culture programmes. At present, I am planning to release new music video clip in the Hebrew language that will be broadcast on the main Israeli TV music channel as well as on the “Clip TV” internet channel.

Music Bio for Ann Pascoe, New Zealand

Ann Pascoe is certainly an authentic country girl who was born on a back country sheep farm, milked cows after her marriage, and raised five children with her husband Ross, listening to country music of the day.

"About 1999 I started writing country songs and needed someone to sing them, but nobody seemed keen. I was told to sing them myself," she says. So she took singing lessons for two years and found she could sing quite well.

Since her 2001 debut she has produced seven albums: "The First Hello" named from her own composition recorded with local Taranaki musicans backing her.

"Misty Morning Memories" used music backing from Nashville, and the songs of Roy G. Ownbey, whose help and songs figured widely in Ann's new music life. And still do.

Her third album "On the Menu" in 2005 received excellent feed back world wide, the title track (her own composition) going to #5 on the European Country Music Assn. Top 100 and staying on the charts for weeks.

Ann's fourth album "I'm Doing Fine" takes it's title from another Ownbey song, and was chosen because Pascoe feels she is doing fine! Two duos with New Zealand legend Dennis Marsh are included on this album.

"Am I Blue" from the album reached #5 on the European Country Music Assn. charts and stayed in the Top 100 after 14 weeks being played by country radio stations around the world.

A fifth album "Somewhere Between Memories and Dreams" includes four of Pascoe's own compositions and compositions of American writer, Glen Erickson.

A carefully selected list of songs from Ann's past albums makes up "The Best of Ann Pascoe" album.

A cover songs album, "Country Sunshine" is the latest album covering songs like "Country Sunshine", "Apartment #9", "Cowboy Loving Night", "Anytime", "Bed of Roses" and eight other favourites.

Releasing her music with Hillcrest in Canada put her on the world map! "I’m more famous 'out there' than in New Zealand," says Pascoe who has been reviewed in a French music magazine "Review de Musiques Americaines", interviewed on radio and played on country music stations in France, UK, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Germany, Japan, Belgium, Malta, Norway, Sweden to name a few.

This month she has signed up with Rhonbob Promotions as a great way of promoting her music even more widely, throughout the world. "I figure my music deserves me to find the best ways of promoting it," says Ann.

At home with her band OLDOGS, Ann sings at concerts and festivals in New Zealand, and she has supported some American, Australian and New Zealand acts in various concerts and shows.

If you like sweet sounding vocals with pure Nashville country backing, you will enjoy all of Ann Pascoe's music.
