Shazam’s 2015 Hit Makers Predictions

Young Thug: Every track Young Thug has touched in 2014 has been massive. The next 12 months look bright for this 22 year old rapper.

Echosmith: This teenage band has slowly built over the last 16 months to become one of the most Shazamed acts in the US. Echomsith enters 2015 on a crest of a wave with “Cool Kids” having caught on and a successful summer headlining the Warped Tour.

Rae Sremmurd: Rae Sremmurd have had two of the biggest rap singles of the past six months. They’ve worked with Nicki Minaj and are currently being mentored by the in demand producer, Mike Will Made It.

Oliver Heldens: This Dutch 19 year old is already a massive DJ and a huge draw at festivals but 2015 could see him go to the next level of dance music stardom. His new track, ‘Koala’, is currently one of the most reactive dance records on Shazam.

DeJ Loaf: This Detroit rapper has had one of the breakthrough songs of the year with ‘Try Me’. She’s now been signed to Columbia and Drake’s a noted fan. Her new mixtape is already receiving a great reaction on Shazam.

Sam Hunt: Sam Hunt is set up to be one of the next big country music stars. His song ‘Leave The Night On’ was the second most Shazamed Country song of 2014 and his album is already receiving a massive reaction with Shazam users.

James Bay: This British singer songwriter is already being talked about as the next Ed Sheeran. His songs have been hugely reactive from minimal radio play- most notable from a few early spins on Radio One in the UK.

Maddie & Tae: This act has been number one in Shazam’s Country charts for over 8 weeks. The Texan duo may be headed for cross-over success when their album drops sometime next year.

Years & Years: This English act could be the next big pop act. They were featured on ‘Sunlight’ by The Magician, a big radio hit in Europe. Their debut album is expected sometime in 2015.

Tchami: This French producer is one of the few acts that have broken into the Shazam charts with only specialist radio and club playing his music. His song, ‘Promesses’, is going to be a big cross over hit early next year.

Honorable Mention:

Raury: This 18 year old Atlanta born singer has a sound influenced by Andre 3000, Bon Iver and Frank Ocean. He’s drawn comparisons to Lorde and is featured on the new Huger Games soundtrack – incidentally curated by Lorde herself.

John Cage was an avant-garde composer whose work has left a lasting influence on contemporary music. (Thom York of Radiohead calls Cage one of his all-time heroes.) Cage’s work included such experimentation as using a prepared piano (meaning objects are placed inside the piano to alter the sound) and a composition called 433, in which the musicians make no sounds at all for four minutes and thirty-three seconds.

RULE ONE: Find a place you trust, and then try trusting it for awhile.

RULE TWO: General duties of a studentpull everything out of your teacher; pull everything out of your fellow students.

RULE THREE: General duties of a teacherpull everything out of your students.

RULE FOUR: Consider everything an experiment.

RULE FIVE: Be self-disciplined: this means finding someone wise or smart and choosing to follow them. To be disciplined is to follow in a good way. To be self-disciplined is to follow in a better way.

RULE SIX: Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail, there’s only make.

RULE SEVEN: The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It’s the people who do all of the work all of the time who eventually catch on to things.

RULE EIGHT: Dont try to create and analyze at the same time. They’re different processes.

RULE NINE: Be happy whenever you can manage it. Enjoy yourself. It’s lighter than you think.

RULE TEN: We’re breaking all the rules. Even our own rules. And how do we do that? By leaving plenty of room for X quantities.

HINTS: Always be around. Come or go to everything. Always go to classes. Read anything you can get your hands on. Look at movies carefully, often. Save everythingit might come in handy later.

From Corita Kents book Learning by Heart: Teachings to Free the Creative Spirit

It’s that time of the year again, where websites, blogs, news media outlets and generally happy people endeavor into creating their Best Of The Year lists, highlighting works that will surely stand as their choices for high-water marks for music in 2014. You’ll find a fairly diverse range of opinions, but all of their choices contain within the power, beauty and commitment to the art form, no matter how you chose to consume music these days. So, go ahead – choose a list. Many of them link up to a Spotify or Rdio or YouTube playlist so you can hear and see people’s choices. The big winners from the critics include Beck, Lana Del Rey, FKA twigs, Perfume Genius, The War On Drugs, Run the Jewels, St. Vincent, and a whole lotta Taylor Swift. But, above all, you’ll no doubt find one or two hidden gems in each critic’s choices. I’ll be updating this list daily, so if you have a list published, or want to direct me to one, please let me know!

Jack Bruce, best known as one third of Cream, has died of liver disease. In a statement issued by his family on Saturday, his family said: ““It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.”

To pay tribute, here are 25 Things You Need To Know About Jack Bruce.

1. Bruce was born to musical parents who moved frequently, resulting in the young Bruce attending 14 different schools.

2. He won a scholarship to the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, while playing in Jim McHarg’s Scotsville Jazzband to support himself. The Academy disapproved of its students playing jazz. “They found out,” Bruce told Musician correspondent Jim Macnie, “and said ‘you either stop, or leave college.’ So I left college.”

3. Bruce was trained as a classical cellist, and he considered himself a jazz musician, although much of he’s really more known for music that tended toward blues and rock and roll.

4. In 1962, Bruce became a member of the London-based band Blues Incorporated, led by Alexis Korner, in which he played the upright bass. The band also included organist Graham Bond, saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith and drummer Ginger Baker.

5. In 1963, the group broke up and Bruce went on to form the Graham Bond Quartet with Bond, Baker, and guitarist John McLaughlin. They played an eclectic range of music genres, including bebop, blues and rhythm and blues. As a result of session work at this time, Bruce switched from the upright bass to the electric bass guitar.

6. As a result of session work at this time, Bruce switched from the upright bass to the electric bass guitar.

7. After leaving the Graham Bond Quartet, Bruce recorded a solo single, “I’m Gettin Tired”, for Polydor Records. He soon after joined John Mayall and his John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers group, which featured guitarist Eric Clapton.

8. After the Bluesbreakers, Bruce tasted his first commercial success as a member of Manfred Mann in 1966, including “Pretty Flamingo” which reached number one in the UK singles chart.

9. It was his first of two number one singles – the other being an uncredited bass part on The Scaffold’s “Lily the Pink.”

10. While with Manfred Mann, Bruce again collaborated with Eric Clapton as a member of Powerhouse, which also featured the Spencer Davis Group vocalist Steve Winwood credited as Steve Anglo. The 3 tracks were featured on the Elektra sampler album What’s Shakin’. Two of the songs, “Crossroads” and “Steppin’ Out”, became staples in the live set of his next band – Cream.

11. Bruce, with his Gibson EB-3 electric bass, became one of the most famous bassists in rock, winning musicians’ polls and influencing the next generation of bassists such as Sting, Geddy Lee and Jeff Berlin. Bruce co-wrote most of Cream’s single releases with lyricist Pete Brown, including the hits, “Sunshine of Your Love”, “White Room”, and “I Feel Free”.

12. In 1968, Cream broke up.

13. In 1972, Bruce formed a blues rock power trio, West, Bruce & Laing. Besides Bruce, the group included singer/guitarist Leslie West and drummer Corky Laing, both formerly of the Cream-influenced American band Mountain. West, Bruce & Laing produced two studio albums, Why Dontcha and Whatever Turns You On, and one live album, Live ‘n’ Kickin’.

14. In 1973, Bruce recorded bass guitar for Lou Reed’s Berlin album playing on all but two tracks.

15. A 1975 tour was lined up to support the Out of the Storm album with a band featuring former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor and jazz keyboard player Carla Bley, with whom he had collaborated in 1971 on Escalator over the Hill. The tour was documented on Live ’75 (at Manchester’s Free Trade Hall), but it ended with Taylor’s departure, and no studio album was completed.

16. In the late 70s, Bruce formed new bands with musicians such as Simon Phillips, members from the Mahavishnu Orchestra, John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham. A 3-CD collection of his 1970s BBC recordings called Spirit was released in 2008.

17. By 1979, Bruce’s drug habit had reached such a level that he had lost most of his money. He kept touring and recording with Robin Trower, Bruce Gary from The Knack, and Anton Fier’s Golden Palominos.

18. In 1989, Bruce began recording material with Ginger Baker and released another solo album, A Question of Time. Baker and Bruce toured the United States at turn of the decade. Bruce played at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1990, and was invited by Irish blues rock performer, Rory Gallagher (who had a long-standing relationship with Bruce, having supported Cream’s farewell concert in the band Taste in 1968) to perform a couple of songs together onstage.

19. Bruce had suffered a period of declining health, and in 2003 was diagnosed with liver cancer. In September 2003, he underwent a liver transplant, which was almost fatal, as his body initially rejected the new organ.

20. In May 2005, he reunited with former Cream bandmates Clapton and Baker for a series of well-received concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall, released as the album Royal Albert Hall London May 2–3–5–6 2005, and New York’s Madison Square Garden.

21. In October 2009, Bruce performed at the 50th anniversary of Ronnie Scott’s Club with the Ronnie Scott’s Blues Band. After garnering good reviews, three further dates at the club were added in March 2010.

22. At the 2011 North American Music Merchants Show, Bruce became only the third recipient of the International Bassist Award, a lifetime achievement award for bassists, after Jaco Pastorius and Nathan Watts. Asked whom he regards as the best bass players in pop and rock history: “If you’re talking electric bass, it’s very, very simple: James Jamerson, Paul McCartney, Jaco Pastorius, me.”

23. “Spectrum Road” was released in June 2012 by the US jazz record label Palmetto Records. It was accompanied by a series of dates at large jazz festivals in North America and Europe throughout June and July.

24. Bruce released new studio album “Silver Rails” in March 2014 on the Esoteric Antenna, his first solo studio album in over a decade. “Silver Rails” was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and features contributions from Cream (band) lyricists Pete Brown, Kip Hanrahan and wife Margrit Seyffer as well as musicians Robin Trower, Cindy Blackman, Phil Manzanera, Uli Jon Roth, John Medeski and Bernie Marsden. Bruce’s son Malcolm Bruce pre-produced the album and played guitar on several tracks and Bruce’s daughter Aruba Red was featured on “Hidden Cities” singing backing vocals.

25. “We all have roles in life. I’m a dad, a husband, this and that, but basically I only feel justified in being alive when I’m on the stage.”

From CoS:

The Richest has published a list of the 10 wealthiest bassist in music, and while the names probably won’t surprise you, their placement might. Of course, the top spot is a given: Paul McCartney, perhaps the most famous bassist of all-time, is worth $1.2 billion, some $900 million more than the next richest. The Police’s Sting and KISS’ Gene Simmons are both worth an estimated $300 million and, thus, tied for second.

Despite having the highest-grossing tour of all-time, Roger Waters peaks at No. 4 with a net worth of $270. He’s followed by U2’s Adam Clayton and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea. At No. 7, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones is reportedly worth $80 million, which seems a little low given the band’s place in rock history and constant reissues. The same can also be said about Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, who places behind No Doubt’s Tony Kanal.

Check out the full list below.

01. Paul McCartney – $1.2 billion
02. Sting – $300 million
02. Gene Simmons (KISS) – $300 million
04. Roger Waters – $270 million
05. Adam Clayton (U2) – $150 million
06. Flea – $115 million
07. John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) – $80 million
08. Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath) – $65 million
09. Tony Kanal (No Doubt) – $45 million
10. Krist Novoselic (Nirvana) – $40 million

Nielsen SoundScan has released its first report on streaming services in Canada. The data combines streams from YouTube, Rdio, Google Plus, Slacker, Nokia and Xbox. The numbers are pretty small compared to the US, but it’s still early – and with Pandora launching to the select few, these stream total will explode shortly.

Top of the list is “Dark Horse” with Katy Perry featuring Juicy J with 795.8K streams, followed by “Fancy” with Iggy Asalea f/t Charlie XCX at 653.1K. Sia’s “Chandalier” comes in 3rd with 527.9K streams.

The top 100 list reads like a CHR top 100 countdown chart with a few retro cuts in-between, including Survivor’s 1982 hit “Eye of the Tiger” scoring 100.8K spins and placing 94th on the 100 list, Blue Swede’s “Hooked on A Feeling” with 170.5K spins at 39 (from 127) and Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass’s “Spanish Flea” logging 211.1K streams and jumping 310 to 29 on the chart.

Only two Canadians make the 100 list: “Rude” by Magic! logged 278.9K streams, placing 10th on the list and faux Canadian Robin Thicke (featuring T.I. + Pharrell) ranks 79th with “Blurred Lines registering 114K streams.
