(PRWEB) October 4, 2004 -
City Canyons Records has announced the signing today of the UK band ANEMO featuring diva Hazelle Woodhurst, to a multi-album contract. Styling itself as a record label without borders, City Canyons has already signed international artists David Steele, also from the UK, and Valerian from Finland whose albums ÂUnderneath the IceÂ and ÂIntimations of SorrowÂ respectively will be released on November 5..
Trebor Lloyd, a principal of the independent label based in downtown Manhattan, said that ANEMO is exactly the kind of band that fits into the City CanyonÂs roster. ÂANEMO is bracingly fresh, has its own definitive sound and features knock-out vocals, courtesy of Ms. Woodhurst. That sound and those vocals wrap around strong edgy lyrics and songwriting from the team of Woodhurst and Kingsley Sage. Talent like ANEMO is helping City Canyons achieve that Ânew sound in town,Â distinct, intelligent but with wide appeal to discriminating audiences everywhere.Â
According to Lloyd, City CanyonÂs latest international deal largely came about through discovery of ANEMO on the highly respected international music network, music2deal.com.
ÂMusic2deal.com is an excellent forum for independent labels, artists and songwriters who really want to explore the international market. It keeps City Canyons in touch with whatÂs really happening on the global scene.
City Canyons plans to release ANEMOÂs album ÂSlow BurnÂ internationally in early 2005. ItÂs releases of its other international artists David Steele and Valerian are planned for November 2, 2004.
"ANEMO is extremely pleased with the multi-album deal just signed with City Canyons and looks forward to the release of their first album and, and along with City Canyons' other European artists David Steele and Valerian, to bringing some exciting and fresh-sounding European rock/beats crossover sounds to the United States, Âsaid ANEMO band member and creative force, Kingsley Sage.
Sage also credits music2deal.com for its part in the City Canyons agreement. ÂThis deal shows the continued interest in British music in the US and the ability of music2deal.com to link artists with dynamic independent labels who are actively looking to work with new artists worldwide.Â
ANEMO is looking forward to working with its new label mates. ÂWe certainly hope to hook up in some fashion sooner rather than later with David Steele and Valerian. We are also very exited about our label mates in the U.S. including Jen Elliott and Bluestruck, Sara Wendt and Ripe and look forward to the likelihood of joining some or all of them on-stage in the U.S. in 2005.Â
