Featured in Suzan Beraza's Massacre River Documentary
The sixth single from Malou Beauvoir’s Spiritwalker album, “Papa Damballah” speaks to one of the most ancient and revered spirits in Haitian Vaudou. The creator of all life, Papa Damballah, the great white snake, represents wisdom, morality, creation, and equity.
The song recalls we are all his children and asks for his protection and guidance in situations of injustice. Beauvoir’s personal relationship with this spirit is emphasized during the spoken word passage when she “thanks him and the spirits that guide her everyday of her life for their support”.
The closing song on Spiritwalker, “Papa Damballah” plays over the end credits in Suzan Beraza’s documentary Massacre River: The Woman Without a Country, which has aired on PBS over 1500 times since its televisual premiere on October 1st 2019. New air dates for the film have been announced for November.
Beauvoir reflects on how right this song was when chosen by the director, saying “I feel as if Papa Damballah was manifesting and telling Pikilina in the film, that she had finally gotten some form of justice by telling her story and representing countless others.”
“Papa Damballah” features Andy Ezrin (Piano), Bob Mann (Guitar), Ben Whitman (Drums and Percussion), and David Finck (Upright Bass). Recorded at AVATAR Studios in NY.
About Massacre River
This character-driven documentary takes place in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, two ethnically and culturally distinct countries that have been forced to share an island since colonial times. The film follows Pikilina, a Dominican-born woman of Haitian descent, and her family. Racial and political violence erupt when the country of her birth, the Dominican Republic, reverses its birthright citizenship law and she is left stateless, along with 250,000 others. With the stroke of a pen, generations of people are left without a homeland. This sets Pikilina off on an epic journey as she struggles to regain her Dominican citizenship. Pikilina now faces the choice of fighting for her rightful citizenship and exposing herself to danger, or fleeing with her family to Haiti, a country she barely knows. In a country already rife with racism, this contentious law further stokes an atmosphere of distrust and animosity between Dominicans and Haitians, and gives tacit official support for xenophobia.

She has grown within as well as externally to provide the confidence that now radiates with her smile and interactions with her fans when she does her boss thing on stage. Not only is she trained in the classics vocally, such as Mozart and Gerswhin, but Cheri Janae began to open up her repertoire while in college. Today she is a comfortable writer and vocal artist in the genre of Pop and R&B music.

When asked during an interview at the Sony BMG showcase to describe what is her greatest strengths she replied as an artist, “I’m the artist who brings the fun back in music thru storytelling, fashion, and rhythmic melodies like a modern-day Diana Ross or Donna Summer.”
Her latest single “Rewind”has been aired on many commercial as well as Internet radio stations but her fans wanted more and many asked for a reggae remix to the song which she delivered to her fans. The song is now receiving many airplays more recently with the affiliation with Manatee Records, one of Reggae music’s upstart and accomplished record labels globally.

Singer-Songwriter Judith Owen Releases a Wild and Woolly New Single, “Second-Hand Sexbot,” Due Nov. 22
With unmatched humor and flair, Owen lampoons the growing trend of AI-enhanced love dolls
LOS ANGELES (date) – Judith Owen is many things – a world class pianist and vocalist; an internationally acclaimed composer, recording artist and performer whose stylistic range spans rock, pop, classical, jazz, blues and musical theatre – but she’s also a master storyteller.
And she’s something of a provocateur. On her captivating and riotously funny new single, “Second-Hand Sexbot,” wondrously strange tale about loneliness and isolation and the growth in the demand for startlingly lifelike AI-enhanced love dolls as replacement companions (even when in a relationship) around the globe.
“As a songwriter, I sometimes tackle very serious subjects,” Owen says, “but I also rely very heavily on my sense of humor.
Which is exactly what Owen did after she caught a late-night TV show documenting a man who had purchased an anthropomorphic robot sex doll. “He was talking about how technically advanced these robots have become and how, in addition to having sex with it, he saw it as his ‘girlfriend’ and treated it with great care and tenderness,” Owen recalls. “At first, I thought, ‘OK, I’m not going to be judgmental because he’s obviously a lonely single man, and he’s not hurting anyone!’ We’re at a place in society where we’re behind our computers so much that we hardly talk or interact with other humans at all.”
However, Owen’s head spun around when he admitted that, owing to the high price of AI dolls and his budgetary limitations, he’d gone on a Craigslist-type site and bought a “second-hand sexbot”! “My eyes lit up,” Owen says. “I thought, ‘There’s so many things wrong with that.’ For instance, wear and tear?”
Owen has previewed “Second-Hand Sexbot” during recent concert performances, and she notes that the song drew raves at an appearance attended by a host of artificial intelligence experts. “After I sang it for them, they announced that it was a hit and that they would vote it as their favorite song of all time,” she says. “To get their stamp of approval sealed the deal for me.”

At Radio Now
"Arkansas Dave’s sound is earnest, passionate; his voice drops with conviction no matter the subject—a talent for bad behavior, a run of bad luck and loneliness, the weariness of the road or true love."
– Americana Music Show
"Arkansas Dave delivers an exciting, rock heavy edge to Americana which is thoroughly enjoyable…"
– Building Our Own Nashville
Born in Little Rock and raised in Camden, Arkansas, the multi-instrumentalist was reared in a house divided by fundamental Christianity and crippling drug abuse. He migrated from Arkansas with nothing but his love for music, and started surviving on side jobs here and there while honing his craft wherever he could. He eventually found his way to Austin, where he enrolled at the Media Tech school and plied his trade in the same studio where Willie Nelson and Neil Young cut records. A series of bands followed, including a stint on tour with Guitar Shorty. Dave developed a following in Austin, and parlayed that local fame into his first record. The road ahead may be smoother than what’s behind him, but it’s a road that’s yet to be traveled; a road Dave will pave through Nashville with his grit, determination and sheer musical talent.

Debut Album & Tour Dates Announcing Early 2020!
“Shaking” strikes right at the heart of ’60s psychedelia. Its ridiculously catchy core melody feels fresh while retaining a retrospective sensibility. –Stereogum
watch the new music video!!
"Shaking" is the long awaited return of the enigmatic California based Aussie songstress, who first broke through four years ago with a series of transfixing, jangling dream-pop singles and EPs. With her trademark track, the indie classic "Never Going Home’, having now amassed tens of millions of plays online, Hazel has cemented her place as one of the brightest new stars of indie, and anticipation for her debut album has reached an all time high.
The first single off the forthcoming debut album could not be a bigger statement of intent. A Sixties-influenced odyssey of grooves and cloud-bursting hooks that will have indie jukeboxes taking nuclear turns from the off.
“Shaking presents the promise of spiritual awakening as a kind of seduction in order to lull the individual into false truths about themselves and the world around them” Hazel notes, of the track’s narrative. “It’s meant to be a playful, tongue-in-cheek song so mostly I hope people get some fun out of it"
Written by Hazel and recurrent collaborator Blake Stranathan (Lana Del Rey) and produced in Hazel’s adopted home of Los Angeles by super-producer Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX, Angel Olsen), "Shaking" lays the groundwork for Hazel's forthcoming album, which casts a similarly wry, appraising eye over modern life.
"There is a lot more I am trying to explore under the surface that I hope people notice," she notes, "questions like: what are the ideas we are seduced by, and are they leading us to a good or bad place? What do we truly believe deep down? "I feel like I’m on this continual journey of figuring out what I truly believe and separating it from the false and toxic ideas I was taught about myself and the world throughout my life. I hope I can inspire others to also search for their inner truths and find their own inner strength in the process."
With the single’s fusion of dreamy lyricism and propulsive, hazy grooves, the scene has been set for one hell of an album. And if this first missive is anything to go by, Hazel’s debut promises to be one of the highlights of 2020.
