If you are bright, you'll notice the title is a play on the Hippocratic Oath. The set was recorded live on April 20 -yes, 420, both Benson and ARTISTdirect get the joke- at the Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis. The release on Comedy Central Records comes with a bonus DVD including full, uncensored versions of his two Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials. Uncensored? Now you are speaking my language. Though he is sometimes "too trunk to dweet," Benson has amassed over 70,000 followers on Twitter with lines including "I have HIV. But don't worry, I still get to draw four more scrabble tiles." Don't be fooled by his laid-back delivery - Benson is as sharp as comics come and his jokes appeal to smokers and non-smokers alike. Covering everything from the importance of time-saving abbreviations such as "deets" to his 2010 "Pot The Vote" tour in California, the former Marijuana-Logues star gets audiences high on laughs.

Maroon 5 have released two multi-platinum studio albums (2002’s Songs About Jane and 2007’s It Won’t Be Soon Before Long), scored a string of hit singles (“This Love,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Harder to Breathe,” “Sunday Morning,” “Makes Me Wonder”), won three Grammy Awards, and sold 15 million albums around the world. Now the Los Angeles quintet is back with its third-studio album, entitled Hands All Over — a killer hybrid of rock, pop, funk, and R&B, that showcases the band’s considerable strengths: buoyant, unforgettable melodies, sleek, stylish grooves, charged lyrics about turbulent relationships, and crisp, dynamic performances. Adam Levine, the band’s lyricist, began writing the songs that appear on Hands All Over after winding down from a world tour in support of It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. A few months later, Maroon 5 received a phone call from veteran studio wizard Robert John “Mutt” Lange (AC/DC, Foreigner, The Cars), who had heard that Maroon 5 were beginning to write a new album and expressed an interest in producing it. “We didn’t even talk to anyone else,” Levine says. “Mutt is undeniably one of the most successful producers who’s ever lived.” Levine’s first performing experience — in fact the event that ignited his desire to become a singer and musician — actually involves Lange. The story goes like this: 20 years ago, when Levine was 10, he attended a friend’s birthday party “at one of those places in the San Fernando Valley where the kids dress up in rock’n’roll gear and lip-sync their favorite songs,” he says. Levine chose the Def Leppard classic “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” “I knew I could sing because my music teacher told me I had a voice, but I had never really performed before. I grabbed the mic and just went for it. Afterwards I knew that I’ve got to do this for the rest of my life. That’s what got the whole ball rolling for me.” The classic anthem “Pour Some Sugar On Me” was, of course, famously produced by Lange. “If that’s not a full 360, I don’t know what is,” Levine says. “It doesn’t get more circular than that.” - Quoted from Amazon

The stunning new effort by internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter David Gray -- begins with those evocative and somewhat mysterious words. What follows is an extraordinary song cycle of rare and timeless power that bears a rather fitting title. As people today may or may not remember, the word “foundling” is defined as “an infant found after its unknown parents have abandoned it.” And as Gray puts it with a warm laugh, “Foundling sort of arrived at my door without my asking it to, so it felt very appropriate for this album.” In a sense, Foundling also marks another notable arrival -- the second coming of David Gray’s own second coming -- and one that truly “sprung like a wild orchid” in its own right. By 2005, Gray had already enjoyed what has been a rather distinguished career as a singer-songwriter and recording artist, having sold more than 12 million albums, including his global left-field smash, 1998’s White Ladder, which remains the single best selling album in Irish history. Gray had by this point already won two Ivor Novello Awards, a Q award, two Brit nominations and a GRAMMY nomination. But not a man or artist content to ever rest on his laurels, Gray decided that the time has come to shake things up in a significant way. So in 2006, David Gray decided to disband his longtime backing group, and to attempt to reconnect with his music before recording his excellent 2009 album Draw The Line with a new group of players at his studio The Church. “Draw the Line was essentially about the band, and four people playing together in a room,” says Gray. “But you can’t just keep going for unlimited takes. So on days when I felt everyone was getting a bit worn down and frayed at the edges -- and that it might be good to give everyone a little space -- I’d go into the studio on my own or maybe with one other person. I’d either work on tracks we already recorded or try to record other songs with just me on piano or guitar. That’s a lot of what eventually became Foundling. In essence, foundling became an alternate musical universe to Draw The Line. As Gray puts it,“ Foundling was an album done in slices of time in between band recording sessions. Eventually, I had the thought of recording and then mixing two separate albums during the same time period, so I then went back and took a closer look at the tracks and recorded a few overdubs and attempted to add a few finishing touches so that they sounded more complete. That’s how Foundling became like a tapestry that I hung on the other side of The Church. And I kept walking over and making little marks on it, and before you knew it, what started off as a side project was holding my attention as well as the main work.” - Quoted from Amazon

Universal Motown Records singer-songwriter-producer KEM has announced that he will release his third album, Intimacy, preceded by a series of online promotional videos that will reintroduce him to the marketplace by offering an intimate preview of what’s to come. The new CD is the Detroit native’s long awaited follow-up to his critically acclaimed and certified gold 2005 disc, KEM Album II. Intimacy was inspired by KEM’s deeply personal lessons on intimacy and it will allow fans to experience him unlike ever before musically, lyrically, and visually. For the first time in his career, KEM will lay all of his cards on the table and grant fans the opportunity to get up close and personal while delivering a 10-song collection of timeless music for the grown and sexy. Intimacy features vocal and production collaborations with the likes of Grammy-winning soul diva Jill Scott and the late Motown legend David J. Van dePitt, who famously produced Marvin Gaye’s 1971 masterpiece, What’s Going On. Scott delivers enchanting verses of spoken word in “Golden Days,” while Van dePitt arranged the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s string section on the first single, a gorgeous ballad called “Why Would You Stay.” Los Angeles producer Rex Rideout (Luther Vandross, Angie Stone) also joined KEM in the studio to help round out the Intimacy listening experience. The result is a richer sound buttressed by classical instruments and a greater range of musical styles that will certainly expand KEM’s audience by garnering success across multiple formats, including pop, R&B, and urban adult contemporary. - Quoted from Amazon

Op 3 maart 2009 komt de fysieke EP uit, maar vanaf 27 januari al kun je de digitale versie kopen bij iTunes, Amazon MP3 etc. Als je 'm bij haar nieuwe label Sensibility Records bestelt, krijg je er drie gratis downloads bij, de demo versies van What Can I Do (But Love You), Charmed Life en I'm Gonna Break Your Heart. Op Reverbnation promootte ze al eerder Lose Myself, een prikkelend introspectief ("I'm so sick of hiding myself in everybody else I'm singing in a burning building and no one can help Stuck in my own room holding the key It's just me.") op gitaar met strijkers en een tamboerijn als begeleiding. De titeltrack, One of Those Days is een pop/jazz song, zoals Francesca Battistelli of Sara Barielles die in elkaar zet: luchtig en vrolijk. What Can I Do is een liefdeslied, zoals Karen Bergquist (Over The Rhine) die kan zingen. Charmed Life is een knappe popsong met een galmende Joy en haast harpspel op piano. I'm Gonna Break Your Heart is een eerlijke biecht van onvolmaaktheid. Boeiend product van deze 26 jarige artieste.

Van semi-akoestische dromerige liedjes (Lovesick Mistake, It's Not That Easy), zoals Karen Bergquist (Over The Rhine ) die kan zingen tot krachtige popsongs die verder gaan dan waar Katie Melua en Maria Mena in een akoestische setting blijven hangen. Nergens gaat ze zich te buiten aan rock. Met producer, componist en toetsenist Jamie Kenney is een mooie mix gemaakt van subtiel drumwerk uit een doosjes, electronica, strijkwerk, gitaar en drums, met opvallend bescheiden rol voor de piano. McCarley swingt en zwiert. De 11 liedjes gaan erin als koek en voor je 't weet heb je op Repeat gedrukt.
