Goa Chillout Zone Vol. 3 CD Launch Brings Together Best of Global Independent Music Stars

W.O.A International releases the third volume of their chart topping compilation CD, percentage of sales go towards animal welfare.

Goa, India –July 27th, 2010 – W.O.A International proudly announces the launch of their third volume in the Goa Chillout Zone CD collection. Comprising of 20 International artists from various genres from both the company's record label W.O.A Records as well as unsigned acts, it's an eclectic double CD bringing together some of the very best artists in independent music today. Importantly, it's part of an extremely worthwhile cause at the same time.

"The Goa Chillout Zone has proved to be a very successful compilation album for W.O.A Records and the artists on the first two compilations, with these albums we're not only bringing original and exciting music to the public," says Wanda Alvares, Executive Vice President / Head of Marketing, "we're also giving back to a cause we believe passionately in. For every CD sold, we utilise 10% of the company's share towards animal welfare"       

The situation of stray animals and their welfare is in dire straits in many regions of the world, it's a situation that's continuously in the news and the animal cruelty by many government officials handling the stray animals is alarming. W.O.A International recognizes that it's something that won't be changed overnight, but passionately believe that continued support in the fight against it will eventually win through.

The Goa Chillout Zone CD Vol. 3 is the third release in the planned five-volume collection, with the first two volumes breaking many records and topping several album charts. Bringing together the best that W.O.A International has to offer as well as unsigned independent artists worldwide, it includes the likes of Ross Royce, Freddie Long Band, Aquarius Blue, Martin Williams, as well as acts Peter Bayreuther, Yaz Alexander, Lawrence Cresswell and other Independent Music stars.   

Such has the success been in the first two volumes of the Goa Chillout Zone that W.O.A International is already planning the fourth volume, due for release in August 2011. Artists interested in appearing on Vol.4 are encouraged to submit their songs for submission onto the collection. With 10,000 copies being pressed and distributed worldwide to mega stores, retailers, radio stations, coffee shops and digitally to Amazon and iTunes etc as well as top clubs at holiday destinations like Ibiza, Goa, etc, it's an excellent opportunity for unsigned artists to be heard by large audiences. Each artist selected for the CD will receive royalties/licensing fees.

With the Goa Chillout Zone CD Vol.3 set to be a huge success following in the footsteps of the first 2 volumes for both artists and the chosen charity, and Vol.4 already in the planning stage, 2010 looks set to be a milestone year for W.O.A International.

W.O.A International signs Ibiza based artist Cherie Nichole

Hollywood Actress & Model turned professional Singer joins the elite W.O.A International Artist Roster

Goa, India - 4th June, 2010 - A strong voice backed with years of acting and modeling experience around the world, Ibiza based Cherie Nichole, the singer with passion and soul that radiates from her voice and her compositions is now a part of the W.O.A International artist roster. 

"We are excited to sign on Cherie Nichole who we first heard off when she was to be a part of our radio promotions campaign a few months ago in India" says Pete Saunders, V.P Artist Management, W.O.A International, "after hearing her music and reviewing her fine experience as a model and actress with experience from around the world there was no doubt that we wanted to have her as a part of the W.O.A Artist Roster. Her profile will be well accepted in this part of the world"

Cherie has had a nomadic lifestyle traveling around the world acting and modeling, and it landed her on the magical island of Ibiza. She has been a musician since childhood and Ibiza provided the inspiration to write and sing with some of it's greatest artists.

"Ibiphonic – Moonstruck is my debut album, I feel that I have a universal soul that speaks not only to me, but speaks also to the world through this platform" says the Singer, "by being exposed to the enjoyment of music at a young age and feeling a connection to it I have been a musician for twenty years, which began with singing and later expanded into my passion to study the trumpet and piano among other instruments" 

Her singing mirrors the soul and challenges the human spirit. By projecting energy with passion, and the culmination of life experiences from her nomadic traveling, she offers a voice of wordly comfort and wants to share what's in her heart and mind to make a unique connection to other souls.

Cherie is expected to be in India this December on a promotional tour to promote her debut album 'Ibiphonc - Moonstruck' and event organisers / venue owners can contact W.O.A International for bookings of this amazing singer who captures audiences with her beauty and her voice.

W.O.A International signs UK's upcoming Jazz Star Yaz Alexander

Jazz music's new phenomenon now on the W.O.A International Booking Agency Roster

Goa India - 22nd May, 2010 - W.O.A International's eclectic mix of artists on their elite Artist Roster is being referred to as The most sought after artist list in and around India. With some of Rock, Pop, Metal & Chillout music's biggest names signed to W.O.A International there is however one genre that has constantly been growing at W.O.A international behind the scenes and that is Jazz and its various sub genres. In the past W.O.A International have helped their jazz artists reach unimaginable heights in the industry by having artists like Luna Blanca placed alongside artists like Youssouf N'Dour, Neneh Cherry & Nelly Furtado on Universal Music's major compilations. Various smooth jazz artists have hit top positions on main stream charts after being signed to W.O.A Records and these Jazz artists signed to W.O.A International are today some of the most booked artists on the circuit in India.

W.O.A International's A&R Division have done it again by signing a new rising jazz/reggae music star who is slated to be UK's next big sensation - Yaz Alexander. 

Yaz Alexander is one of the UK's unsung reggae / jazz music heroines whose history in those genres spans over twenty years. A former backing vocalist for UK reggae luminaries such as Pato Banton and the iconic Steel Pulse, Yaz showcases her sultry and sophisticated vocal ability on this her third solo release. Unlike her previous two releases, Life Begins (2007) and Cry For Freedom (2009) which were both almost exclusively orthodox reggae, One Step Closer sees this beautiful songstress fuse other music genres e.g. R'n'B, Soul, Jazz, Dancehall, Hip Hop & Bhangra to create a unique sound which gives credence to the claim that Yaz Alexander is not just a reggae / jazz music singer, rather she is a singer per se.

Since her solo debut in 2007, Yaz Alexander has become a regular fixture on the vibrant summer festival circuits of Europe and the UK and indeed she has also taken her mesmeric stage show as far a field as North America and the Caribbean. In 2007, Yaz was commissioned by an heritage lottery funded project to write an ode to commemorate the bi-centenary of the abolition of the slave trade in Great Britain and the track that she penned, "Cry For Freedom" was subsequently used incidentally in an edition of BBC TV's award winning documentary, Panorama – an episode contemporized by the fact that the subject of the episode was the rise of the now British Prime Minister, David Cameron.

Yaz Alexander is scheduled to be on the W.O.A Jazz Tour this year in India. Stay tuned for more info on this hot new Jazz Sensation right here.

Industry praise for Oliver Sean's International Hit - So Good - W.O.A News Desk

Oliver Sean's latest single is "So Good" and is a spirited, yet
quasi-reflective, Pop/Rock song. One can really hear Sean's talents as
he moves from catchy verses to upbeat choruses with straight from the
heart tonality.

Sean has a strong and solid vocal range that brings this song to life
with his relaxed, easy flowing style. The energy the instruments
display complements the vocals with a grooving beat that makes this
song fun while capturing the listener's attention right from the
start.

Take a listen to, "So Good," as it is a good ole' fashioned rock song
that will make you want to hear more well crafted songs from this
talented artist.

-Sean B. and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team

Master Of Melody - Indian Express

An article on The Indian Express a few months ago - fantastic piece on Oliver Sean. The album titled 'Getting Around' written about in the article below is now called 'So Good' by Oliver Sean to be released end of April 2010 and the single of the same name has now gone platinum. The album also features the song 'Getting Around' included in the album as a featured single. The single 'So Good is now available as a free download on www.oliversean.com, itunes etc and has currently recorded over 3 million downloads.
- W.O.A News Desk.

MASTER OF MELODY - Indian Express - India  If there ever were a musical sorcerer, then his shoes would fit Oliver Sean to  a tee. A rhythmic illusionist and conjurer of rhyme and substance, Sean is  simply sensational. At the trivial age of four, Sean assumed the role of a  singer. At eight, he was strumming away on his guitar and when eleven, Sean  waxed into quasi-lyricist. He is the real deal, the whole shebang when one  adverts music.   Sean doesn't conform to fads and vogues of the times. Contrary to the  remarkably sweeping trend of collaboration observed in the music industry at  present, Sean isn't too big on collaboration. "Though I wouldn't mind  collaborating with established producers, I am chary of the messages in my  songs transposing due to many cooks spoiling the broth," he says.   His upcoming English album Getting Around, is also set to release this year.  The lyrics, being deep and soft, are intrinsically about peace and love. Anent  the title of the album, he says, "A single child, I lived a protected childhood  assuming the world to be all hunky-dory until I encountered deceptive,  two-faced people along my way. Having grown-up and learnt it the hard way, now  I have gotten around to know life's ugly secrets."   Though he is mixed up with his lineage, belonging to multiple  ethnicity-Italian, Portuguese and Indian heritage-, having grown up in Goa, he  considers Goa as his hometown and his perennial destination for peaceful  contemplation. He also has a penchant for animals and looks to it that ten per  cent of his albums' sales revenue goes towards animal welfare and to stop fur  trade.   Having studied to be a sound recording engineer in the US, he is an industry in  himself, writing, arranging and composing all the tracks in his albums by  himself. Categorising his music as acoustic rock, basically world music, he  sometimes commixes it with music from ethnic instruments. But then again, this  isn't his conscious decision. "My music attempts to blend genres. It blends  rock-and-roll with rock music, blends the music of 60s with that of the 90s.  While arranging music, more and more instruments keep coming into the picture  and it's always an artistic choice to accommodate these instruments," Sean  explicates.   This being his first time playing in Pune, he is assured of a large audience  due to the large number of colleges in the city. At the concert here on  Saturday, his fans could look forward to some music from his new album Getting  Around, a few chosen previous hits and some classic songs like Knocking on  Heaven's Door à la mode de Dylan.   His fabulous feats have included the French government including his  composition The Libran Mind as the theme song for its tourism campaign of the  Massif region. Entirely instrumental, this was uncharted territory for the  singer-songwriter. Sean is also the owner of two recording companies - W.O.A  Records and Sevenz Records. He figures in a band called the Oliver Sean Band.  Though for gag's sake, it is also sometimes called Oliver Sean and the  Longhaired band.   His multilingual world rock album Darna Chod Do, a commingling of world music  and mainstream rock, saw him delving into Hindi songs. The ideas and  compositions, being his own, he collaborated with several lyricists on the  album.
