Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 5, 2008
Astrum Records adult contemporary, pop recording artist Michael Paige has been classified as The New Voice Of Romance with the release of his self-titled record, due to launch this coming second quarter. The assortment of Michael's project encompasses love ballads and dance music crossing over to a blend of continental flavors. Michael's style and hands-on approach makes him multi-talented in all aspects of music, from writing and publishing his own music, to singing in six languages and playing the piano.
"Michael Paige is a unique talent. He's a versatile singer and songwriter with a strong romantic voice, and the ability to create an emotional connection with the listener," says Don Grierson, former Senior VP of A&R at Sony/Epic Records.
Michael was privileged to co-write with songwriters such as Linda Thompson, who was nominated for both an Oscar and a Grammy for her song in the movie Bodyguard, and Amy Foster-Gillies, who has written songs for Eric Benet, Diana Krall, Michael Buble and Andrea Bocelli. "The team behind the music has been carefully selected and has resulted in a perfect masterpiece ready for the consumer market", states Josh East, Senior Project Manager for MusiK1. With music producer Tony Smith on board, who's worked on projects with Dolly Parton, Barbra Streisand, Lionel Richie, Whitney Houston and Johnny Mathis to name a few, the music quality has captivated those who've had the opportunity to listen to the record. The caliber of musicians are also sensational; with guitarists Michael Thompson, who worked on Quincy Jones' Q's Juke Joint album, as well as Steve Farris, who played guitar for Eddie Money and later went on to form the group Mr. Mister and also performed for Celine Dion.
As Michael prepares for tour season, with specialty market properties such as casinos and cruise lines ready for scheduling, on top of in-store performances at prominent music retail locations, his record campaign has been kicked in full gear. The solid alliance between Astrum Records and record campaign solutions provider MusiK1 has initiated an online, terrestrial radio and retail marketing campaign to target both the Internet and traditional consumer market. Both companies are also in pre-production, creating a reality show around Michael's campaign initiatives.
