12187662_1083039548408038_8549749290592823641_nPamela Long’s  new hit single, You Said released by Musik Radio Promotions is garnering worldwide radio airplay.

The voice that many find to be unique and unable to be duplicated is back! Pamela Long of the platinum selling R&B group Total, has emerged once again with the sound we all fell in love with.  Her sound first debuted on the Bad  Boy/Arista roster, which immediately garnered her the spot as the lead vocalist of the group. Music mogul Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs recognized the distinction of Pamela’s voice, and used it to make a huge impact in he music industry. Total is best known for their hits “What You Want” (Featuring Mase), “Kissing You”, “Can’t You See” (featuring The Notorious B.I.G.), and “What About Us”.

All three members of R&B super group, Total , Kima Raynor, Keisha Spivey and Pamela Long, are currently reuniting  for the first time ever to represent the fierce ladies behind the Bad Boy empire touring with The Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour.“This isn’t just a concert– this is a moment in hip hop and R&B history.” said Sean “Diddy” Combs aka Puff Daddy.

This Grammy Award winner (for the song “Hypnotize” with The Notorious B.I.G) made an indelible mark on contemporary R&B music back then, and is just as relevant today; ready to surpass what has already been done. Pamela’s new single, “You Said” continues to forge ahead with a style that is uniquely “Pamela Long”.

Pamela says, “By God’s grace I am here, and by God’s grace I shall remain.” And we are all blessed because of her continued presence in the music world!

Ex-Girlfriend’s Julia Robertson and Norm Adams pair up for single Body Rush now Released by Musik Radio Promotions

July 25, 2016
Post Image

Julia Robertson and Norm Adams pair up  for hit single, Body Rush.  Now released by Musik Radio Promotions, the single has proved a hit, being picked up by the BBC networks and thousands of stations around the world.

Julia Robertson achieved fame in the 90’s, as part of the female R&B group Ex-Girlfriend. The New York based quartet was comprised of Julia, Tisha Hunter, Monica Boyd and Stacy Francis .  Signed to Warner/Reprise Records, Ex- Girlfriend’s debut album, “X Marks the Spot”, yielded the hit singles “Why Can’t You Come Home?” (Billboard #5 U.S. R&B), and “You (You’re The One For Me)”.

Norm Adams is a singer-songwriter, whose creative style has often drawn comparisons to Babyface, Ne-Yo and Bruno Mars. His debut solo album, “This Is My Time”, was produced by Grammy nominated producers Ric Zivic and Ted Wender, and included the Top 10 indie record, “Love Me” (MWR UK #7), and the dance floor filler “Stretch Ya Neck”, whose video was designated by Yahoo as a “must see” .

Destiny came calling when a mutual friend suggested on social media that Julia and Norm do a song together, calling them his “two favorite singers”. Julia responded that she thought it was a great idea, and that she’d love to do it! Norm had written “Body Rush” some time ago, but never quite knew what to do with it because as he elaborated, “I didn’t feel that it was right for me as a solo artist, (or any solo artist for that matter). When presented with the idea of a duet however, I knew it would be perfect! I sent Julia a demo of the song, and she absolutely loved it! A couple of weeks later, she came out to my house in Philadelphia, and we began working on it. The first time our voices blended on the song, we both knew that it was going to be something special.”

“Body Rush” was officially released on May 31, 2016, and the release was celebrated shortly thereafter at an exclusive red carpet event in New York City, where the video was screened to a standing room only crowd.

The “Body Rush” music video was shot over two days in New York and Philadelphia, and was directed by award winning filmmaker Maurice Paramore. The concept is that of a man, sitting alone in a bar, fantasizing about being in a relationship with a beautiful woman that he sees walking by. At the end of the video, much to his surprise, she approaches him as he is getting ready to leave. It is a beautiful love story in keeping with the theme of the song, and the on screen chemistry between Julia and Norm is a reflection of their real life friendship and genuine affinity for one another. Parts of the video reference the duo’s  individual music careers as well.  Half way through the video,  each have solo shots where scenes from  previous music videos are shown on a big screen in the background. Additionally, the opening scene features a cameo appearance by Julia’s ‘Ex Girlfriend’ bandmate, Tisha Hunter.

Italian band, Illacrimo, releases With Ones Own Eyes with Musik and Films Radio Promotions

Italian band, Illacrimo, releases “With Ones Own Eyes” with Musik and Films Radio Promotions.  The band has since  had 3 songs in the Euro Indie Music Chart between January and May 2016, one of these in the TOP 20.

” It’s been an honour of sitting on Musik and Film’s working group, a beautiful dream for a band like us. I have a lot of feelings in my heart at the moment…life is strange and beautiful at the same time, my father, Janos Acs, conducted Aretha Franklin at the Grammy 1998,and he was the Conductor of Luciano Pavarotti”, states  Davide-Kristof Acs from iLLacrimo.

Illacrimo reviews have been positive:

Larry Toering  of Ventsmagazine quotes “After a long way full of different experiences, two young brains meet again,in a moor between fog and melancholy near Milano. Davide-Kristof (son of Janos Acs, an important Conductor) and Federica Sara raise a project of European sounds, shuffle with the traditional Italian melody. “This is an outstanding work to their credit and only suffers from not enough songs amongst all there is to be said, besides the consensus being this is one killer band.

“A debut featured by charisma and personality”. Rock Hard

“A convincing debut that makes iLLacrimo a reality worth to be followed”.All Music Italia

“iLLacrimo display a drive being seen less and less amond unsigned and indie bands.This group is hungry”.Jammerzine

“This Ep changes the rules for female voiced gothic music”.  Rock Hard Italia

Major Artists Continue to Express Distaste for Major Labels

September 22, 2015
Post Image

Win Butler, front man of Arcade Fire, was recently interviewed by The Independent and he had some things to say about the state of the major label music industry today, and those responsible for it.

In an effort to  help find ways to change the music industry for the better, Arcade Fire became involved with the launch of Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service. The service itself has mostly failed to take off due to mishandling that Butler claims are due to the major labels themselves. He states:

“The major label music industry has completely ruined every aspect of their business. At every step of the way they’ve had the tools offered to them to create an industry that works, and they’ve completely blown it. That’s why we never had any interest in signing a contract with one of these companies because they’re clearly completely clueless.” 

Arcade Fire is an excellent example of independent artists who have put in the the time, the talent, and the focus to treat themselves like a business and work their way to the top. Founded in 2001, Arcade Fire formed as an indie Canadian band between two classmates and went on to release their debut album “Funeral” in 2004, a little over a decade later they are one of the biggest indie bands in the world all due to handwork and perseverance.

Arcade Fire is able to see the forest for the trees, and they are trying to help save the forest that is the music industry. They can tell that the Majors are grasping at straws trying to keep the industry afloat and they’re so far entirely unsuccessful. Musik and Film Records has been ahead of the Majors for years, empowering the indie artist with the tools they need to take their music to the next level!

Tod Hughes is making his music dreams come true, the RIGHT way!

September 15, 2015
Post Image

Musik Radio Promotions artist, Tod Hughes, was recently featured in a Canadian RV publication “RV Times”, authored by Katrina Boguski! It’s a wonderful read about rekindling your musical dreams, even after taking time off to nurture a career in another profession, treating your music like a business, and reaching out to less commonly thought of demographics! It’s a great testament to Tod’s business-like mind-set towards achieving his music goals, and what good management can help you achieve! It speaks to everything we stand for at Musik and Film Records, empowering the artist! The original post can be found in the online edition of RV times, click here for the link! (The story is on page 24). Enjoy the article below!

Music festivals around North America are frequent destinations for RVers. While many people carefully consider their routes to such performances, few stop to consider the paths which musicians have taken to get there.

For most musicians, the road to the top is a steep uphill climb; the journey, more often than not, is one that young musicians abandon easily to deal with life’s more practical considerations. Once the dream has been abandoned, it is rare to see people pick it up again. One Canadian musician who bucks that trend is Tod Hughes. He’s been playing music for over 35 years, starting with guitar, then music theory, harmonica and songwriting. After a successful career in real estate, Tod is now rekindling the dream to succeed in music. By all accounts, his destination is within reach. He is an energetic performer who captivates his audiences. He brings with him a strong skill set he picked up from the business world. Hughes notes, “Organizing a band, promoting, recording and gigging is basically a business. Even if you are not doing it strictly for money, it is a business.” Tod Hughes is one of a few dozen musicians working with Mark Rosner of Rosner Management Services (RMS) ( The musicians range in age from their pre-teens to their 50’s. While young musicians may be full of vim and vigor, they need to be equipped with the life skills and business skills to build their vision. A large part of being successful in the music industry has to do with being successful in business. Hughes says, “Many musicians don’t realize this and don’t excel at business or feel like a sell-out if they take a business-like approach, but it just makes sense.”

Just as a successful road trip often involves selecting the right travel companions, so too the road to success in music is best traveled with a supportive team. On this point Hughes advises that, “You want to be efficient, surround yourself with competent, reliable people, put out a great product at a reasonable cost, make a return on your investment and most of all put out a product (the music) that the market, (your fans), love!” While most musicians under the leadership of RMS don’t have the same business savvy as Hughes, they are not without support. Mark Rosner says, “[RMS develops] ALL aspects of emerging artists and helps them navigate a business that has typically no blueprint.” With the right support, vision, and direction, success happens progressively and safely.

Tod Hughes acknowledges working with Rosner Management Services has been a good fit. Of Rosner’s specific insight into the music industry Tod says, “Mark is knowledgeable about music as a business. That is something I don’t have a lot of experience with, so it is very helpful. Also, meeting other like-minded artists is awesome. Mark brings a creative approach to the business side of music and his enthusiasm and encouragement on the artistic side are really motivating.”

It’s not all about the numbers though. Hughes says focusing on music has taught him “that art is relevant, important.” He adds “…businesses need to think of an investment in the arts as well as investing in their own bottom line.” He encourages businesses to remember that the arts are important and need support too. Rosner sees the strong collaboration between business and the arts as a union that benefits a large number of people. He also sees ongoing partnerships with music and business as one of the driving forces reshaping the music industry. Musicians receive support and financial backing from companies, companies gain brand awareness, and sales by getting their product message out to the loyal fans. Those fans are also sometimes rewarded by insider deals and perks reserved exclusively for them. Rosner has been successful in attracting sponsorship partners through his other company Artist Deals, ( Sierrasil, a local BC company owned and operated by Michael Bentley, was an early adopter of the idea of partnering their brand with emerging musicians. Every time purchasers enter the promo code “TodHughesProject” on www. Sierrasil supports the arts, and fans receive a discount. It’s a simple concept that rewards everyone.

Rosner says of the Sierrasil team: “They are great people from top to bottom and great supporters of developing artists in Canada.” As artists gain awareness of the need to apply sound business tactics, businesses like Sierrasil see the collaboration with artists as an opportunity to market their product in a way that emphasizes the human quality of business. In the end, business is not just about a company name or brand, it is also about transactions made by people. If you expect people to do business with you, you better understand people. Musicians tend to be very gifted at understanding and appreciating people, especially their fans. Hughes goes so far as to say that “…for me, music connects my spirit with a higher power, and transcends thoughts and ideas to a more spiritual plane.”

For a company like Sierrasil, whose vision is to help one million or more people live healthier and more active lives, connecting with the whole person is important; music is one of the best vehicles to make that connection. Sierrasil offers relief for joint pain, and as someone who uses it regularly, Rosner saw it as a product that would benefit many people.

When asked about the biggest challenges of being a more mature musician, Hughes replied, “There is a perception in certain genres that music is a young person’s game (ironic, given the age of the highest grossing tour performers!)…in some way you are fighting that perception and some would say you are striving, while others say you are motivating!” He advises: “Having the right attitude is very important at all ages, but especially as a mature musician. Know what you are doing and why you are doing it. Health and fitness are also important to have the energy needed to perform at a high level.”

When he was asked about his music goals Hughes replied, “My goals are simply to make great original music, share it with as many people as possible and to play at interesting and fun venues!” Perhaps one of these venues will be a festival you attend in your RV. If so, be sure to get a front row seat to take in this engaging performer. For more details on Tod Hughes, check out: or todhughesproject .

Do you attend music festivals in your RV? If so, which ones are your favourites and offer the best amenities for RVers? Have your RV travels introduced you to emerging musicians, known in their corner of the world, but as yet undiscovered in other parts? If so, please keep the conversation going and share any comments about your RV music destinations at katrinaboguski@ .


To succeed in ANY vocation, one needs to understand how the industry works, and when you don’t understand how something works, enlist the help of those who do understand. Tod has done just that. He partnered with Musik Radio Promotions to release his music world-wide! Do YOU want YOUR music to be heard on over 250,000 around the world?
