EPISODE 2: The WOA TV Show - All Things Music SEASON 3



EPISODE 2: THE WOA TV SHOW SEASON 3

This weeks episode brings us an eclectic mix of really talented artists including Billy Dean and the Rebels who have had over a million hits on youtube for their music video and we highly recommend this track that brings Indie Rock to the forefront. We also have Fiona Miss 2.1 with her song Up& Down that we premiered on the WOAFM99 Radio Show's premiere episode - if you haven't checked out the WOAFM99 Radio show you really shouldn't miss it, and if you are the owner of the brand new iPhone you MUST subscribe to the WOA TV & Radio Podcast where you will get the WOA TV Show 3 minute promos before every episode so you can check out what we have oin store on the upcoming episode and you get the FULL episode of each and every WOAFM99 Radio Show which you can listen to anytime.

The Second segment of Episode 2 begins with Natalie Jean who incidentally is also on the Goa Chillout Zone Vol.5, which we are totally in love with by the way, a more synth based artist with a more retro electronic production, we know for a fact there are massive number of fans for this kind of sound - enjoy 'Mission' by Natalie Jean. Following this is Susan Muranty, an Australian artist with a SUPER CHILL song and video - she would have been a good addition to the Goa Chillout Zone actually - you can almost imagine yourself chilling by the beach at sunset with the track coming over the light breeze while you sip a cold one :-)

The last segment of todays show is quite interesting, the video starting off segment 3 of this episode is Paul Thomas Yoder, one of our new favorites actually, and also a featured act on the Goa Chillout Zone with the same song as this video called 'Catalina Cool'.

The last song of todays episode is really quirky and has us going out on a limb - not something we usually feature on our show but with all the rage of Korean songs that have been getting Grammy's and MTV EMA's and even toppling over major platinum selling songs and high profile artists last year we decided to give you a FULL ON Korean track by LOVE X STEREO that is gaining major traction Internationally now.

Get in touch with us, send us comments  the good ones will get a reply and a lot of love from all of us and all the artists, the bad comments  however will get whats coming to you ;-)) hahaha

Much Love from all of us at WOA TV

WOA Artist Eric Dulle rocking it on France!

Article on WOA Artist Eric Dulle on French News paper. Eric Dulle will be performing in India and Dubai this year on the 6th annual WOA India Tour and the WOA Dubai Music Festival. 
Coudekerque-Branche: Éric Dulle, le «Prince» du saxophone qui fait fureur en Inde

Sur scène, Éric Dulle confie sa voix à son instrument de prédilection, le saxophone.VDNSur scène, Éric Dulle confie sa voix à son instrument de prédilection, le saxophone.

« Fin 2011, j'ai fait une tournée en Inde, à Goa. Là-bas, ma musique est diffusée sur plusieurs radios et télévisions et on trouve mes disques chez les disquaires », raconte Éric Dulle, Coudekerquois depuis dix ans et dont on n'entend peu la musique sur les ondes du littoral. Il a créé son entreprise, «Gilnie Production » en 2006 pour maîtriser, un peu comme Prince avant lui, toute la chaîne de la production musicale : « Dans ma famille, on est musicien de père en fils. Mon père, Gilbert Dulle était professeur de saxophone à l'Académie de musique de Coudekerque-Branche. Il m'a forcé à faire de la musique mais il m'a laissé choisir mon instrument. J'ai choisi le saxophone puisque j'avais un professeur à la maison »

Jusqu'à 187 dates par an

Le vrai déclic est venu à l'adolescence, avec les cours de jazz de Roger Naert (école de musique de Dunkerque) qui lui ont permis de découvrir l'improvisation et la création : « Je fais de la scène depuis l'âge de 14 ans, j'ai fait mes premiers cachets dans les bals du Dunkerquois. Ensuite, je suis parti à Lille où j'ai joué de tous les styles : musette, free jazz, dixieland, rock, funk… J'étais trop actif. Je ne voulais pas être intermittent ! Lors de mon année record, j'ai fait 187 dates mais, en moyenne j'en fais 120 par an. J'ai joué avec James Carter et Didier Lockwood ». Éric Dulle dispose d'un studio et peut se targuer d'avoir sorti trois albums, qui mettent en valeur le saxophone à qui il confie sa voix : « C'est un mélange de reprises de musiques pop, que je réinterprète et réarrange, et de compositions ». Dans son dernier opus, il reprend « Passion » de Rod Stewart, « Come Together » de John Lennon ou encore « Billie Jean» de Michael Jackson. Ses compositions s'intitulent « Family » ou « So naïve ». On remarque l'influence des années 80 : « C'était une époque très créative. Il n'y avait pas énormément de reprises. Aujourd'hui, on prend un MP3, on chante et on se dit artiste ! »

En 2011, il a décroché un contrat de management pour trois ans en Inde avec la maison de disques WOA International. Là-bas, il s'est fait connaître sur des plateaux multi-artistes : « Je me suis retrouvé avec le groupe de métal « Overhate » du Venezuela qui a déjà ouvert des concerts de Metallica… En octobre, je repars pour une tournée en Inde puis à Dubaï avec le chanteur allemand Mathias Sturm et Oliver Sean ». Ambitieuse, sa maison de disques veut le lancer en Afrique du Nord. Éric Dulle a aussi composé la musique et les arrangements du dernier single de Noël Lagoia (la « voix » de Claude François dans « Podium »), « Boulevard Exelmans».

SEASON PREMIERE: The WOA TV Show - All Things Music (Season 3)

Well here we you have it folks - the much awaited Season 3 Premiere of the WOA TV Show - All Things Music! Watch the show on http://www.WOATV.tv 

With the phenomenal success of Season 1 and Season 2 of the WOA TV Show www.woatv.tv and marking the launch of the NEW iPHONES today :)) we are excited to bring you the premiere episode of The WOA TV show SEASON 3! And to show you how excited we are the entire production team of the WOA TV show are getting a new iPhone 5C for doing such a great job on this TV show consistently 3 seasons in a row :) yep Oliver Sean is an awesome Boss ;) - who knows we might even pass on an iPhone 5c to the top video of this season 3. Talking about the top videos, Season 2 chart toppers 'Life Thru Iris' won a full fledged music video promo campaign for being voted the no.1 music video of the season by fans. You will hear a lot more about 'Life Thru Iris' in the coming episodes and how they are going to be rocking this region across major TV networks all because of the WOA TV Show and the fan poll voting on our Facebook page @woatv - so do go to the WOA TV Facebook page and vote for your favorite video/artist from todays show. If you are already a fan of our facebook page.... WE LOVE YOU!!! 

Well lets get on with the premiere show of Season 3 and give you an update on the bands who made the cut for episode1. We start off today's show with truly an awesome video by UFORIA. Personally we just couldn't get enough of the way the director/editor has played around with different motion speeds keeping in sync with this alt rock song. Simple yet effective. Uforia is going to stay on your minds - guaranteed. 

The second video in the first segment of the show is Snowfall featuring J.Angell. This video has over 500,000 views on YouTube!!! A very well produced song and a video worthy of MTV we'd say. We at W.O.A Films ( www.woaproductions.co.uk ) produce a lot of music videos for Vh1 and MTV and this one has "A Class Production Value" written all over it. Snowfall is also going to be heard across major radio networks via their WOA Radio Campaign starting September 15th. Also in the works for Snowfall is a 30 minute interview with the artist that will be heard on major FM networks across the Indian Subcontinent and also online.

Australia's Diana May Clark kicks off segment 2 of the WOA TV Show Season 3 premiere with her hit single 'Sunny Daze' - LA and Venice Beach have never looked liked so much fun on an independent production ever before ;-) Now this may not be LA and/or Venice Beach but those Palm Trees and the Beach, in our opinion were a dead giveaway :-) (We could be wrong - any LA residents watching this video give us a shout out on this) - Remember the U2 video on that New York rooftop years ago? Now imagine a happier ending with all those people down on the streets coming on up and having a blast with the band :-) Oh and NO COPS ;-) This put us in a great mood.

Second part of segment two has 'Millow the Girl' in concert being a real rockstar with her song 'Beautiful World' and keeping with the Australian theme - we must tell you here that this order of videos was unintentional. We guess that when you hear Australian's making good music you just end up putting them together. Millow the Girl had us remembering INXS a bit. 'Millow the Girl' is just confirming that 'ROCK' really does come from Down Under. With company like ACDC and INXS who can argue.

The last segment of the WOA TV Show's premiere episode has Charly B. from Spain blowing us away - this is a European artist who sounds COMPLETELY like the Jamaican and Reggaeton stars. Think Seal Paul and Sean Kingston and you wont hear much of a difference in quality and style when you watch this really fun video by Sean Paul....oops we meant Charly B. :-) This guy is fantastic.

And to end our premiere episode of Season 3 we have a DUEL between Oxford Square and Nicole Taylor. A real quirky video by the artists who call themselves 'Oxford Street vs Nicole Taylor'. A 1920's style silent movie type of music video with a sunshine pop track by these dueling artists. A heads up guys watch the video right till the end and when you think its over just wait a second... we had such a laugh :-) 

Hope you enjoy Epsidoe 1 of the WOA TV Show - All Things Music Season 3. We have some fantastic episodes in the pipeline this season and cant wait for all of you to be blown away by artists that you OUGHT TO KNOW! 

Watch all the past seasons and episodes, artist drops, news updates and more at the Official WOA TV Website http://www.WOATV.tv and for all of you who are on facebook (everyone and their grandma's are on facebook so if you are not - get with it man!) we have special Artist Poll's that we put online soon after the episode is released. Please do vote for your favorite video/artist as it helps them get on the season finale chart show and WIN some really big promotional stuff including a MUSIC VIDEO PROMO PACKAGE that these artists can really benefit from.

Happy Watching!
