July Direct Buzz; Our First International Edition
Posted on July 1, 2010
Welcome to the July issue of the Direct Buzz; our first International Edition. In the beginning, we put forth a mission to enlighten, entertain and inform. Our vision was for the Direct Buzz to become a “Destination” for anyone interested in general entertainment and the exploration of pop culture, life issues and commonly shared interests. With this edition, we make great strides to reach that goal.
We proudly present Blues and R&B singer extraordinaire Janiva Magness as our cover story. Not only one of the premier singers in the world today, she is a beacon of hope for humanity. Her personal story of tragedy and loss - and success in the face of great adversity - is an inspiration to us all.
On the International front, we are excited to debut three new features which will greatly expand our reach. The Aristo International Report explores Country music from around the world; The Americana Music Association chart highlights a format that transcends cultural and musical boundaries, and HotDisc showcases the top independent music catching fire in Europe.
We are pleased to have an exclusive interview with PGA golf legend, John Daly. He talks about his new album, how indebted he is to his fans, and life-changing advice that he learned from his mother.
Music business icon, Jim Halsey, a pioneer in International touring and global artist relations is featured in “Behind the Desk.” And, we showcase great International artists in our “Featured Artists” and “Killer Tracks” music reviews.
This is just the beginning of our mission for the Direct Buzz - to reach across all genres to expose and nurture the best talent that the world has to offer. A lofty goal - but we dream big.
