Los Angeles (PRWEB) September 29, 2009
Totem Records, Inc., http://www.totem-artists.com announced today that the company has launched as an Independent Record Company to be the marketing, advertising, promotion and distribution entity for T.J. Doyle whose debut CD "One True Thing" is scheduled for release on October 23, 2009.
Totem Artists, Inc. specializes in working with online media, publicity, promotion and distribution but also employs traditional music promotion avenues for recording artists.
Totem Artists, Inc. recording artist T.J. Doyle's debut album "One True Thing" is being recorded and mixed by Grammy winning mixer Tom Weir at Studio City Sound, in Los Angeles, and is quietly generating buzz as it's been a well guarded secret until recently.
T.J. Doyle writes songs about what he sees in the world and from the mind's eye, with themes that are universal and microcosmic at the same time.
T.J. Doyle's music has great depth and energy. The sonic quality of the instruments and arrangements are very unique to T.J. Doyle's style. The way the drums and bass, with their pulsing and sometimes quiet strength, blend with the piano, organ, some accordion, and sometimes gritty and tapestry like guitars. T.J. Doyle's unique and imploring voice draws the attention to the meaning of the songs whether it's when he asks the question 'When will we let ourselves be Something To Believe In' or laments that if I wasn't in my own way, there's nothing in my way at all'. Background vocals weave in and out of the strong melodies and substantive lyrics.
Besides T.J. Doyle's writing, singing, and guitar playing, his album features notable musicians who are artists themselves; Rock Deadrick, drums & percussion, David Sutton, bass & cello, Bruno Coon, electric & nylon stringed guitars, Phil Parlapiano, grand piano, Hammond B3 & accordion, Tim Pierce, electric & acoustic guitars, and Carina Round, background vocals.
Totem Artists, Inc. is dedicated to finding the unique writer/artists that have natural appeal to an audience, based on the artist's gift for reaching out to the audience and the content of their symbols/stories.
Totem Artists Inc. is based in Los Angeles and can be reached via info (at) totem-artists. com.
