Award-winning artist Cindy Alexander is preparing to release her ninth studio album, "Nowhere To Hide" on January 5th, 2018. The album consists of some of Alexander's favorite songs, chosen by friends and fans, re-recorded live in the studio. Her new 11-song release begins with the gentle piano ballad "I See Stars" and the beautiful poetry of "Passenger," which is one of two brand new songs on this album. Her warming vocals soar on "4 Hours" and her beautifully simple cover of Bread's "Everything I Own" allows you to enjoy the truth behind Cindy's vocals. The other new original tale is "The Song Will Always Find You," which allows you to fully appreciate her songwriting, before she finishes her new album with the fan favorite "Wonderful," which carries the most up-beat tempo on this release.

Bi-lingual singer/songwriter Sarah Aroeste is preparing to release her
new, all-original Ladino/English holiday album titled
"Together/Endjuntos." The Ladino language is a old Sephardic dialect and
includes elements of Portuguese, French, Italian, Greek, Hebrew and
others. Her new 10-song release begins with "Buena Semana" as you are introduced
to Sarah's beautiful vocals. While you may not understand all of the
lyrics, you will still get wrapped up in her voice. She becomes more
playful with the folk/pop sing-along of "Thank You For The Trees" and
the Middle-Eastern rhythm of "El Dia De Purim." She returns to the
gentle flow of "Ayada Buena" that just allows you to relax and melt into
her vocals. Sarah closes her new album with the hip-hop beats of
"Bimuelo," featuring the work of Kosha Dillz and the Latin jazz of "Buen
Shabat." To find out more about Sarah Aroeste and her latest release

titled "Trollskogen." It features 9-tracks, beginning with the
seven-minute "Intro" as you enter the world of this experimental band.

tracks. They deliver the avant garde jazz of "Bergtrall" and the more
up-beat feel of "Vad Nu," which showcases the diversity in their
musicianship. The wonderful vocals of Annika Jonsson is highlighted with
the poetry of "Han Drak," before Trallskogen finish their new album
