Liberty and Justice - for All? Rory D’Lasnow Releases 'An American Lie' Single/Video

July 2020 (New York, NY) — “An American Lie”, the new single/video from emerging East Coast based Singer/Songwriter Rory D’Lasnow, is now available on Spotify, YouTube and all the other major services. All proceeds from sales and streams of the song will go to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

The song, produced by Hidden In Plain View guitarist Rob Freeman (Gym Class Heroes, Armor For Sleep, Cobra Starship, Hit The Lights) was written among the ever-increasing instances of violence against people of color in America. It speaks to the ever widening dichotomy of “An American Lie”; the supposed promise of liberty, justice and equality for all. D’Lasnow holds the belief that we as Americans are pledging our allegiance to a false ideal that is not fully realized for many of our citizens.

“We the people are responsible for standing up to speak out when we see wrongs done to our fellow man, and to help make them right whenever we can”, Rory said, “So we protest, we become activists. But then, once the public outrage subsides, the same targeting, abuse of power, and negligence in response - which has been going on for centuries - quickly returns; to a collective shrug from the general public.”

After spending the better part of the past two years performing as the opening act for national artists at some of the East Coast's most distinguished venues and festivals, Singer/Songwriter Rory D’Lasnow; who - like Babyface, Buddy Miles, Jimmy Cliff and Dick Dale - plays right handed guitar upside down and backwards (“Lefty” as it were; but not quite) was in quarantine writing for his new EP. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and recognizing this important moment in history, he resolved to  contribute his music and its message to the cause. That respect and reverence for resilience is encompassed in “An American Lie”.

D’Lasnow continued, “My hope is that we can unite as a human race to eliminate the bigotry and prejudice that is so rampant in society today. My goal is to use my voice in the best way I can to stand up for equality and justice”.

About Rory D’Lasnow

Enigmatic Singer/songwriter Rory D’Lasnow first picked up his father’s right-handed guitar as a small child, instinctively deciding to play the instrument upside-down and backwards. Most guitarists play right handed. Some play lefty guitar. Only a select few treat the instrument as if it’s not even a guitar at all such as legendary artists like Babyface, Buddy Miles, Jimmy Cliff and Dick Dale.

Despite never turning the guitar right-side up, Rory has cultivated a unique contemplative sound that has propelled him on to perform at some of the East Coast's most distinguished venues and festivals; from the Knitting Factory, The Bowery Electric, Pianos and Rockwood Music Hall, to Revolution Music Hall on Long Island, and The Saint and Brighton Bar on the Jersey Shore.

D’Lasnow has also had the honor of opening for featured headliners such as American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, actor/musician Drake Bell, and John Corabi of Motley Crue/Dead Daisies fame. Next year, Rory is slated to perform on the Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival acoustic stage for the New Found Glory and The Early November session in April 2021.

July, 2020 (Long Island, NY) – While watching attentively at the protests that have been filling the streets of America, 15 year old Singer/Songwriter Robert Eberle felt inspired to write a song entitled “Enough”; which aims to affect a positive change in the fight against systemic racism in the United States - and all around the world. He then enlisted friends Ethan Felizzari/Versa the band (whom Robert collaborated with on "Hate Me" in 2019) and CK Records Management Division artist Don Da Menace to create this poignant and memorable tribute to an important cause - the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Produced and Engineered by Colton Lava, “Enough” (with Versa the Band & Don Da Menace) is now available on Spotify, Apple Music and all the major services. The video for the track is also available on YouTube.

"When is it enough?? I am upset by what I see from those who are supposed to be protecting all of us from harm, and by what I hear from the so called leaders of our country about it", Robert said, "The constitution is supposed to provide equality and liberty for everyone, regardless of your race, and that just doesn’t seem to always happen - especially for those in the Black community. It's wrong and it needs to change, now. Young people especially are just fed up and even though a lot of us can't vote - yet - our generation isn't just going to sit by and do nothing".

Millie Bobby Brown Stars in Netflix’s Enola Holmes

Fame of 'Stranger Things', Millie Bobby Brown after her successful ongoing role as 'Eleven', grabs another Netflix venture. Starring as Sherlock Holmes' teen sister in the upcoming Netflix movie Enola Holmes, Millie Bobby Brown is ready to impress. Based on the namesake book series by Nancy Springer, the movie is directed by Fleabag and director Harry Bradbeer of 'Killing Eve', and is written by Jack Thorne.

Millie Bobby Brown stars as the title character, and is also a producer on the movie. The role of her older brother, Sherlock, is played by 'Superman' Henry Cavill, while Sam Claflin will be playing their sister Mycroft Holmes. A-list actress Helena Bonham Carter will play their mother Eudoria Holmes, and the movie will be based on her disappearance with Millie playing the quest to find her.


The movie will be set in the year 1884, and will begin on Enola’s 16th birthday, when she discovers her mother missing. Enola sets off to find her mother, outwitting her famous brother Sherlock, and becoming a super-sleuth in her own right. The movie also dwells along a dangerous conspiracy around a mysterious young Lord.


Adding some drama around the release of the movie, Variety reports that the estate of Arthur Conan Doyle is suing Netflix for copyright and trademark issues relating to the film's portrayal of Sherlock. The famous detective is showcased to possess emotions, even as most of the stories have slipped past the 95-year window for copyright protection in the U.S. The estate claims that the movie depicts Sherlock as warm and friendly, however, it is not yet clear if Netflix has responded to the lawsuit.

Tommy Botz’ Story of Loss and Redemption Helps Others Heal Through Music

May, 2020 (Cleveland, OH) -- From a decades long battle with alcoholism, which led him down the dark path of incarceration and homelessness, to finding sobriety and accomplishing his lifelong dream to professionally record his music, Songwriter Tommy Botz’s story is both a cautionary tale and an uplifting journey of redemption.

With much of today’s modern country music often glamorizing cold beers and heartache in an ever-continuous chain as a way to deal with pain, Tommy Botz is instead bringing his true-to-life struggle and its consequences to life through his music.

Though prominent in many of the songs off his latest release “Family & Friends”, a powerful light is shined on his struggle with the bottle and the lives it can impact in his single “Maggie”.

LISTEN TO “MAGGIE” HERE: MAGGIE

Botz has also penned a heartbreaking yet beautiful ballad in “Teddy Bear”, a song written for a fellow inmate while locked up in an Ohio penitentiary. “He knew that I wrote songs and came to my cell in tears one night because he just found out that his little girl had passed away” Says Botz, “His wife was losing her mind questioning her faith and he asked if i could write something for his daughter’s memory.

LISTEN TO “TEDDY BEAR” HERE: TEDDY BEAR

Additionally, Singer Rose Marie, Tommy’s fiancé who has stood by his side for 30 years, sings on the powerful gospel song “He’s Coming Back”.

LISTEN TO “HE’S COMING BACK” HERE: HE'S COMIN BACK

Now sober for over 16 years, you can see Tommy has truly come a long way. Since finishing his incarceration, he’s been off the streets for good - living quietly at The Ed Keating Center, a halfway house in Ohio, after having “crawled through the doors” on May 3rd, 2004 as a “homeless drunk with nowhere to go”.

There he met a kind old man named Jack Mulhall who told him that if he followed some direction he would never have to live like that again. “I wasn't always a homeless drunk. I had dreams and goals like every young man has. I always loved country and gospel music.” says Botz, whose early interest led him to become the lead singer in two bands - The Chevells and The Caesars 5 early in his music career, winning a Battle of the Bands and winding up with an RCA recording contract. But after the loss of their guitar player and their contract being pulled, Botz’s drinking got worse and soon penitentiaries became a way of life.

From broken marriages to lost jobs, no car, and no license - living to drink and drinking to live became his routine. Finally, with several years of sobriety and working under his belt  - he made the decision to go for his dream and finally record some of the over 200+ songs he had written over the years.

“One night while I was praying I heard in my heart - go for your dream and I will put someone in your life who believes in your music”, and after contacting Ante Up Studios owner Michael Seifert, the two began a collaboration that would ultimately become his 6-song EP “Family and Friends”.
