Artists
KevOz
Just who is KevOz, you might ask? First off - I'm a husband, a dad to a rescue dog, and a world traveler. Oh - and, I make music! I'm an independent artist who creates instrumental music ranging from softer, relaxing New Age (think: Vangelis, Yanni) to more upbeat Electronic (think, again: Tangerine Dream, Mannheim Steamroller). I like to call it innovative instrumental music that is beyond genres. I've always had a deep love of music in all forms, but got hooked on creating my own tunes with synthesizers due to the awesome variety of sounds that they allow one to create. I've been doing this for over 30 years now - but it wasn't until the turn of the millennium when I decided to get my music "out here" for all of you to hear.

What started out as a hobby in those early years has become a passion. And nowadays, my music has been purchased, downloaded, and/or streamed from all corners of the globe. It still never ceases to inspire me when someone new downloads just one of my songs. I'm thankful for it every day.

Apparently, there are others who have taken notice, too. During my musical journey, I've somehow managed to be profiled in Keyboard Magazine as their "Unsigned Artist of the Month". iTunes actually placed me in their "iTunes Essentials: Yoga" compilation. And, most recently, Tokyo Disneyland has been featuring my Christmas music over the past several holiday seasons in Tomorrowland - and in a nighttime laser light show beamed onto Space Mountain. Pretty cool, huh? I think so. :)

I reside just outside of Chicago...enjoying life, love, and music. I'm currently working on album #14 (yes, I still call them albums sometimes!) - to be released mid-2016. And I plan to "keep on keeping on" with this as long as I am able. I'm happy you're here for the ride.

Reviews:

"Breezy tunes with infectious beats and lots of "sunny day" attitude. The man can definitely compose a wickedly catchy hook!" - Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter

"The music is consistently upbeat and overflowing with the joy of discovery. Many of the pieces have the high energy of Mannheim Steamroller and the whimsical humor of Ray Lynch." - Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com

"The best "Hearts of Space" program you"ve never heard. I would love for this to be part of a spa or yoga studio's play cycle." - Amazon.com Fan Reviews

"We here at 'Wings' with Angel and Brian are totally enamored with KevOz's music. The best relaxation music we have had in a long dry spell!" - "Wings" with Angel and Brian, WFCF 88.5 FM

Russell Suereth
Electronic-keyboardist Russell Suereth promotes universal spirituality with his heartfelt original instrumental music that blends new age sounds and world-fusion rhythms as heard on his third album, Spiritual Haven.

"I believe people all over the world need spiritual havens," explains Russell. "Of course some people find this in physical places such as churches, temples or sacred sites, but with the right mind-set it can also be in a car, on a couch, in your home or in an office. Music can help people find and connect with their spirituality, which, in turn, can contribute to a healthier lifestyle and a fuller sense of well-being." Russell is also the creator of Music of Spiritual Places, a video series that focuses on spiritual places around the globe.

Parvati
A chart-topping, award-winning Canadian singer, composer, producer, yogi, activist and author, Parvati has been featured on Entertainment Tonight, BPM TV and CBC Radio. Her live shows have been televised nationally in Canada. She has performed at Madison Square Garden (NYC), Earls Court (London) and the former Club Maria (Berlin). Her electrifying stage presence brings to life for audiences a brilliant field of interconnection and a clear, unwavering message of love for self, others and our planet.

Inspired by the symphonic sounds of Nature, the laughter of the Buddha and the sound of the human spirit, Parvati composes and produces texturally rich electronic soundscapes, angelic vocals, powerhouse dance anthems and pop songs that carry a profound and timeless message about life in the positive possibilities.

Parvati's song "I Am Light" was written following her medically miraculous recovery from a paralyzing spinal injury and is being released this fall. The creative intention in the composition, inspired by the Buddhist Heart Sutra and prayer for enlightenment, is to turn our attention towards the eternal light that we all already are, beyond any sense of duality. From this place, we have all come. To this place, we are all returning.

"Parvati brings much needed consciousness to the dance floor and she does it on multiple levels."
- Tom Silverman, pioneer of Hip Hop, Tommy Boy Records and The New Music Seminar

Michele McLaughlin
Musical Storytelling to Inspire and Excite the Imagination...

Michele McLaughlin is a Contemporary Solo Pianist & Composer. She has released fifteen albums, many of which have received multiple nominations and awards, including "Album of the Year", "Song of the Year" and "Top Picks". Her newest album, Undercurrent, debuted at #5 on the New Age Billboard Charts. Her original solo piano compositions are often described as "musical storytelling" and are haunting and contagious, relaxing and beautiful, peaceful and touching, energetic and inspiring. Her music is a regular favorite on Pandora Radio and is a bestseller on iTunes and Amazon, often landing her in the Top Ten New Age Charts. You can listen to Michele online via Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, Pandora Radio, iTunes Radio, Spotify, XM/Sirius and Music Choice Soundscapes. Michele performs and tours regularly and runs her own in-home concert series in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"McLaughlin is what I refer to as a "heart on her sleeve" composer, i.e. there is no subterfuge, no subtlety at work in her music - she presents her emotional intent of a song forthwith and front and center. It's a testament to her considerable talent that this baring of her soul always works so well, because in the hands of a lesser talent, the music would be melodramatic, overly self-conscious, and would grow tiresome. However, it's not just her technique and artistry, which is impossible to ignore, but also her artist's soul, which seems woven into every piece of music she writes. No matter how pyrotechnic she can be (and this woman can really play piano with the best of 'em), there is always the presence of heart, sometimes "in your face" and sometimes between the lines, but never hidden behind artifice."
- Bill Binkelman - Wind & Wire and Zone Music Reporter

Management / Marketings
Little Hartley Music
Little Hartley Music has a collection of content partners and associations with Australian and Asian companies and are now extending opportunities to ambient musicians from around the world. We represent New Age, Neo Classical, Smooth Jazz, World Music, and Easy Listening musicians by sending their music to companies who play, programme, licence, distribute and even purchase ambient genre music.

Our reach is unique not only by its isolation, but also, Australia's major trading partner is Asia. Servicing this market works well because of the clear connection in trade and business agreements between the two regions.

There are over 1,200 cafes, restaurants, shopping centres and retail outlets that rely on us for material to programme as well as 14 airlines, one TV station and over 100 radio stations (both commercial and community).

We have contacts with reviewers, magazines and newspapers and we even register your title on almost every retail computer in Australia as back-up if your regular distribution channels are not working in this territory.

Examples of recent success: Features on multiple airlines, playlist inclusions at Sydney Opera House, shopping centres & cafes, Digital licences in Korea, Album licences to manufacture in Taiwan, a recent shipment of Cds to China, airplay on Aussie radio....etc.

Australia alone is not a massive market by comparison to the USA, but it is the launching pad to China and Asia and that is the biggest future market and the most lucrative for performing artists.

Australia is also unique because we have regional ABC stations paying closer to commercial rates for airplay. Our radio campaigns have a good main stream reach (and pay).

Little Hartley Music is happy to facilitate these opportunities for you, please contact Annette (Dunnie) Crossley or Fiona Joy via our website or email littlehartleymusic@gmail.com for a copy of the promotional options.
