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.

The Light Within

My experience in life taught me that there is no obstacle which cannot be overcome and anything is achievable. People often doubt themselves and easily give up on their dreams because of it, but it is not the right thing to do when there is help available.
After years of being lost and not being able to live up to my full potential, I realized the person who must take charge in this life is me. All I need is inside, but it helps to have someone who can give some direction and support and knows how it feels to be stuck and misunderstood.

‘Simple, there are 6,700 women living unsheltered on our streets by official count. By unofficial count, including the women crashing on couches and sleeping in cars, we probably have over 30,000 women in the city of Los Angeles and over 50,000 in Los Angeles county. These women are continuously exposed to extreme violence,sex crimes, and the weather.’ Mel Tillekeratne

SheDoes At The County Supervisor’s Hearing, Los Angeles – Voices of the Homeless​ Women

29186599_10155816842507107_2810268956575662080_o

I was so honored to be able to speak today and most importantly have these brave women next to me. It was an honor and privilege to be able to share my story and make an impact. This is just a beginning of our journey, WE are here to make the necessary change so no woman would ever suffer again. #SheDoes

 

These are our #SheDoes Warriors who spoke today at the Measure H fund allocation hearing. These #SheDoes Warriors not only spoke, but 5 shared their personal stories of surviving sexual assault, rape, homelessness and mental illness. They spoke as women who conquered insurmountable odds who are now advocating for those whose voices are being ignored. The panel started on a light note but after hearing these #SheDoes Warriors, the mood changed from happy to somber to an atmosphere of how do we help our homeless mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers. Our speakers humanized a dehumanized population using their own experiences.

One of the moderators behind the panel kept wiping away tears & afterward many came up to our group and thanked us for the impact our speakers made. What #SheDoes will achieve beyond sheltering the first 1000 women is humanizing and changing the way people see homeless women.

That is the power of the hashtag #SheDoes. That is the difference you make every time you comment #SheDoes. If it hasn’t occurred to you yet, please know that what you are doing is changing the way Angelenos see homeless women from drug addicts & failures to showing them as our mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers!

Lisa LaRue to Release New Retrospective Album “Origins” Featuring Gilli Smyth, John Payne, Michael Sadler and Others on Melodic Revolution Records
 
Recently signed to Melodic Revolution Records, keyboardist & composer Lisa LaRue is set to release her new album “Origins” in April 2018! A double album celebrating 25 years and 11 releases by LaRue, “Origins” features some of the best musicians in the business: John Payne Asia, GPS), Michael Sadler (Saga), Mitch Perry (Talas, Aerosmith), Gilli Smyth (Gong), Don Schiff (Rocket Scientist, Kracked Earth), Federico Fantacone (Orchestre Celesti) John Baker (Forever Twelve, Mars Hollow) as well as Steve Adams, Brenda K, Michael Wheeler, Merrill Hale, Svetlan Raket (Par Lindh Project), John “Yafke” Timothy, Michael Alvarez.
 
Says Lisa, “The title takes it back to where it all started. Finishing a career, where one started. The photo on the back of the CD was taken on Burnett’s Mound, an infamous site in Topeka, Kansas where I grew up, and where the photo of ‘Kansas’ was taken on the back of their first album. They were very influential and inspirational to me as a young keyboardist/musician growing up in Topeka. The Sunflower on the front represents my origins in Topeka, as well.”
 
Lisa LaRue became the first female artist signed to the Sound of America Records label (SOAR) a sub-label of Natural Visions, the first all-Native American record label founded by Grammy Winner and Motown producer Tom Bee. In 2008 Lisa was nominated for a Hollywood Music Award and was also awarded The Oklahoma Music Award for “Native American Artist of the Year.” Her band 2KX was Nominated as Instrumental Band of the Year in 2011 by the Los Angeles Music Awards.
 
Lisa has also appeared on recordings by others, including Head Transfer Process (Stargazer), Esquire with Nikki Squire (“Stay Low”), Don Schiff, Ryo Okumoto, Oliver Wakeman, Steve Gresswell, Quester and Beyond the Labyrinth.
 
The songs on “Origins” were written and recorded over 25 years. Some in a small recording studio in Tahlequah, OK over a year’s time with John “Yakfe” Timothy, and some in Los Angeles working extensively with John Payne as a co-producer, mixing engineer, bassist, and vocalist. Also, certain songs were known as some of the first prog projects done via internet transfer and finalize with “Sussuration” and “Lemniscate,” completely produced and mixed by LaRue.
 
Says Lisa, “This album is extremely important – it’s important to me, as it represents 25 years of my life and some of the best work I’ve done with some of the best friends in the world. It’s important because it represents the unity and bringing together of many musicians, big and small, through the universal language, music. Lastly, it’s important to fans, as it represents some of the obscure work of many top-notch artists that they may not have in their collection. Melodic Revolution and Nick Katona have always been known for bringing artists together, so there is no better label to showcase this 25-year effort.”
 
“Lisa has a unique perspective to her music. Her Prog rock style is highly influenced by her Native American roots. The listener is drawn in by the mystical and avant-garde approach. From my point of view, it has always been a pleasure and great experience working with her music.” – John Payne
 
“A very atmospheric composition, with a lovely tranquil finale. I hear a lot of my father’s influence in it, a beautiful arrangement.” – Aaron Emerson (son of Keith Emerson) regarding the song “Aspiration”
 
“Some incredible music with 2K9 and 2KX. 2K9 was the beginning….getting to know each other musically, hoping that what you submitted met the criterion, listening to each other’s output and certainly not wanting to overplay. In my opinion, though, this process came to fruition with 2KX’s ‘Fast & Blue’: an accord harmonically, rhythmically, and melodically. I would call a musical synchronicity. Plus I had a joyous yet challenging time contributing!” –  Steve Adams, guitarist for Lisa LaRue Project 2K9 and for 2KX
 
In conjunction with the release of “Origins,” Lisa would like to focus on licensing for soundtracks, television, etc., and being a guest orchestrator on other artist’s projects. In closing she has this to impart, “This album brings together all of the messages of all of my albums. Heritage and culture, bringing people together from around the world, giving each other creative outlets, and finding your spirit mean you’ve made peace with the world and yourself.”
