Calabasas, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2007
New Land Music is proud to announce they have signed a two-year distribution deal with multi talented Amida Records recording artist Tina Malia for her newest release The Silent Awakening. The San Francisco Bay area singer/songwriter was an obvious choice for New Land Music as they embark on new distribution projects after acquiring Backroads Music, a leading Independent music distributor, late last year.
"Lloyd Barde introduced Tina and her music to us all at New Land Music in September 0f 2006. We instantly recognized her as a singer songwriter of quality. Her vocals are quite simply wonderful. Tina is a graceful and beautiful young woman that embodies our mantra 'good music from good citizens.' We are honored to be working with such a refreshing talent." - Kelvyn Evans, CEO New Land Music
A trained classical pianist, Malia earned her position in the pantheon of major music artists with her 2001 debut album Shores of Avalon, a creation of original material and multidimensional soundscapes that earned her rave reviews. In 2005 she released Jaya Bhagavan, a landmark and innovative collection of Sanskrit chants that smoothly transitions Malia's instrumental abilities.
Malia's most comprehensive release to date, The Silent Awakening, is an inspirational and enchanting work of original material that captures emotional sensibilities with her multi-faceted voice and classical ambience.
"I am excited about the prospect of a new company with a fresh start and fresh look on the music business. Because they are artists themselves, they genuinely are interested in the idea of the artist and distributor working together." - Tina Malia
