For Immediate Release
 
International Violinist and Singer-Songwriter KIMIA PPentonto Release the Soulful and Sophisticated WHERE THE RAIN FALLS EP
 
Dallas, TX – As a recording and touring artist, songwriter, and classical violinist, KIMIA PENTON uses her music to explore the common themes we share on life’s journey. KIMIA PENTON is proud to announce her WHERE THE RAIN FALLS EP, releasing worldwide in stores and online September 14, 2018. Having garnered favorable comparisons to Norah Jones, Brandi Carlile, Alison Krauss, Sara Bareilles, and Eva Cassidy, KIMIA PPenton’smusic is a tapestry of her adventures and travels that covers wide swaths of Jazz, Pop, and Folk, as well as stitches of Classical, R&B, Blues, and Middle Eastern influences. 
 
The WHERE THE RAIN FALLS EP is a soulful and sophisticated celebration of self-compassion, authenticity, emotional healing, and fearless femininity. Kimia’s poignant and relatable lyrics and heartfelt vocals are inspired by her broad cultural background and reveal resonant themes of bravery, vulnerability, and self-reflection. “I like to emphasize the things we have in common and can all relate too,” she says. “I want to build bridges, not fences.” KIMIA PENTON produced her WHERE THE RAIN FALLS EP alongside guitarist, co-producer, and co-writer Kelyn Crapp. The pair shares a self-described “nerdy” love of classical music, jazz, and literature. The two also share a tireless work ethic and an unspoken intuitive connection that began on Kimia’s previous album, Lessons from Life and Love.
 
Select album stunners on the new release include “Alive Again,” “Stepping Stones,” and “Where the Rain Falls.” The lush and folk-tinged “Alive Again” is a lighthouse beckoning to those lost on a journey in darkness. Kimia’s vocals manage to be sage and sensual on the track, offering the promise of a fresh start. The poignant piano ballad “Stepping Stones” is a message of gratitude to Kimia’s parents, who made many sacrifices so she could soar with opportunities. The elegant rusticity of “Where Rain Falls” recalls Van Morrison. Here, Kimia shares her gifts as a violinist, and showcases some of her finest lyrics, including the standout line “Where the rain falls, life grows.” Another treat is a recent video release of Kimia’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In the Wind.”
 
KIMIA PPentonhas earned press coverage and accolades from Jamsphere Magazine, ORSVP Magazine, The NewsHub, Artistviewblog.com, Nashvillemusicguide.com, Jazzu.org, and Sleepingbagstudios.ca. She has a deep love of live performance where she shares her music and message in an intimate setting with her fans and followers, and is able to deliver the strongest impact of the connecting and healing nature of her music. KIMIA PENTON’s vocals are soothing, warm, sweet, and soulful, and she effortlessly sings the haunting and graceful melodies she writes. 
Reflecting on her WHERE THE RAIN FALLS EP, Kimia says, “Every song on this album is a message of perseverance, perspective and hope—you’ve got to keep going and living. It is a celebration of when you realize how much you have grown, and how much better things have become because you were courageous and honest in your life.” 
 
KIMIA PENTON was born in the Middle East, raised in London, and now calls Dallas, Texas her home. Her classical training as a violinist started at age seven, and she enjoyed studying both Eastern and Western classics. In her teenage years, she began songwriting and playing the guitar as a way to share messages she was passionate about in a personal way. Kimia’s songs express her love for different cultures and genres of music. Her latest release, WHERE THE RAIN FALLS, follows her successful debut album Lessons from Life and Love.

                                                       For Immediate Release
 
Multicultural European Singer-Songwriter EMILY JOHNSON Releases Her Debut EP OPEN YOUR HEARTProduced By NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN
 
“She has an extraordinary voice, superb.” – John Mclaughlin
 
San Rafael, CA – Sometimes known as “The Lady of Heart,” EMILY JOHNSON is a Bulgarian-born Nigerian singer, songwriter, and composer. Having performed around the world for many years, she is releasing OPEN YOUR HEART, her debut EP, on May 11, 2018, with the help of Tarpan Records in the United States. This EP was produced by NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN and features 4 original songs. 
 
EMILY JOHNSON was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, at a time when the country was still under the influence of the Soviet Union. Her mother is Bulgarian and her father Nigerian, a mix which made her quite different from the other children in her own neighborhood and even her own country. Different by color, but also different in her heightened sensitivity which is expressed so wonderfully in her music.
 
“Open your heart,” EMILY JOHNSON sings on her soon to be released debut EP of the same name. To her this statement is more than words; it is a way of life. On this release of original songs, she creates her art with something beyond passion, giving herself to her audience with a great generosity, energy, and sincerity. Emily brings others together to ignore prejudices, erase borders, and overcome difficulties. She shares with them a simple pleasure which is to SING!
 
Emily has been fortunate to work with some music industry greats, including the incredible guitarist John McLaughlin who invited her on stage for an emotional performance of “Redemption Song.” Another is the world famous, Grammy Award-winning American producer NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin), who graciously opened the doors of his Tarpan Studios to produce OPEN YOUR HEART.
 
Ever since John McLaughlin discovered EMILY JOHNSON on stage on the Côte d’Azur, the Mahavishnu Orchestrafounder has consistently praised her as an artist he already considers “a star.” Emily would certainly reply that she also owes much of her success to his friendship and support. John McLaughlin says, “If one day EMILY JOHNSON is on the top of the charts, it will be because of her talent. She has an extraordinary voice, superb. She has it all! An inner and outer beauty. She can sing everything.”
 
Emily appreciates this immense compliment coming from an artist with such a career. “He is more than a musician; John McLaughlin is a Legend and a great friend and I am so blessed to know him!” she says. They have performed together several times both live and in the studio. Their relationship is more than beautiful; it is strong, sincere and much more than words. 
 
Even better, John invited EMILY JOHNSON to cross the Atlantic to join NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN, the former Mahavishnu Orchestra drummer who became one of Billboard Magazine’s Top Ten Producers of all time. “John has opened up new horizons for me,” says Emily. “He is not only a friend but also my Light.” “The Light,” as she sings on the track from OPEN YOUR HEART that she wrote and dedicated to him.
 
OPEN YOUR HEART features some amazing performances, with NARADA MICHAEL WALDEN playing many instruments and featuring performances by Chris “Heist” Walden (Keyboards/Electronic Drums, “Open Your Heart”), Jim Reitzel (Guitar, “Open Your Heart”), and Cornell “CC” Carter and Deedee Simon (Back-up Vocals, “The Light” and “Open Your Heart”). The song “I’m Blessed” features Rapper G-Dub. OPEN YOUR HEART was recorded at Tarpan Studios by Jim Reitzel and mixed by Dave Frasier.
 
Today this beautiful story continues with new collaborations on both sides of the Atlantic and with the release of her first project, simply titled OPEN YOUR HEART. An obvious choice, isn’t it?

“Enlightenment is a destructive process.
It

Enlightenment is the

crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing
through the facade of pretense. It’s the
complete eradication of everything we
imagined to be true.”

Say hello to a post- America world

“In London last week, I met a Nigerian man who succinctly expressed the reaction of much of the world to the United States these days. “Your country has gone crazy,” he said, with a mixture of outrage and amusement. “I’m from Africa. I know crazy, but I didn’t ever think I would see this in America.”-  Washington Post, Author Fareed Zakaria
