ADELE – A NEW MUSICAL WONDER
It really doesn’t happen so often that you are only 22, you already won 2 Grammys and you are simultaneously praised by both critics and audience.
Well this is what the UK singer-songwriter Adele managed so far.
In her 5-year old career she was the first recipient of the BRIT Awards Critics' Choice, a multi-Grammy Awards nominee and a winner of two Grammys for the Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2009.
Her album 19 debuted at number one, and has been certified 2x platinum in the UK. Adele released her second album 21 a month ago and it instantly got a critical and commercial success. After a spectacular performance at the Brit Awards, the album track 'Someone Like You' went straight to number 1 on the UK singles chart, while the album 21 also remained at number 1.
The Official Charts Company said Adele was the first living artist to achieve the feat of two top five hits in both the Official Singles Chart and the Official Albums Chart simultaneously since The Beatles in 1964.

New album "Abazar" by Voices of Nature on iTunes!
2 days ago, on Valentine’s Day, the group “Voices of Nature” released their second album ”Abazar”.
Abazar is a new venture in electro-eclectic music based on specially chosen grooves that incorporate clarity in harmonic and melodic movements.
The founder of the project, Andrej Kljaković is a piano player, composer and musician that studied Jazz Conservatory in Paris, participated in many jazz-rock projects and worked as a record producer for V2 Universal and Sony/BMG record labels.
‘’My dedication to challenge this type of musical expression is just at the beginning of its development. There is a never-ending process to explore and combine old known systems that support new ideas’’, says Andrej.
All the songs on the album are sung in invented imaginary languages that’s reminiscent of Afro-Arabic.
As Voices Of Natures previous album Exotika was infectiously festive, multicultural and multinational, Abazar penetrates more deeply in mystical exotic pulses over the haunting pan global textures.

IMAGEM MUSIC PARTNERS WITH EPITAPH RECORDS
Imagem Music, the world’s largest independent music publisher, has announced an agreement with Brett Gurewitz and his iconic label Epitaph Records to become the administration partner for the company’s publishing division, FIG Music.
This new agreement is a long-term, worldwide (excl. USA/Canada) administration deal including all existing FIG Music artists as well as future signings.
Epitaph Records was founded by Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz, with the aim of starting an artist-friendly label from a musician’s point of view. Perhaps most well known for being the little indie from L.A. that spawned the 90s punk explosion, Epitaph stayed independent even while breaking gold and multi-platinum punk acts such as The Offspring, Rancid, NOFX, Bad Religion and Pennywise. It has hence grown into one of the most diverse and well-respected independent labels of its time, launching along the way, the two very successful sister labels: Hellcat Records, specializing in street punk, psychobilly & ska, and ANTI-, representing such distinguished artists as Tom Waits, Mavis Staples, The Swell Season and Neko Case.
