In today’s world with much music created solely for the kids with the pop stars using every device and gadget to keep them in tune, it’s more than refreshing to hear a CD by adults, for adults (kids will dig it too!). From the opening bars of “The Rumors”, from the forthcoming CD by EG Holmes, I was hooked. David Vanden Enden’s voice hits you like a warm, summer rain shower, so soothing and yet extremely powerful. Such a great compliment to the compositions Holmes has created.
Some of you may know that our good buddy Alberto Quadri has a fantastic Website, "The Quadri Project" (www.quadriproject.com), where Alberto writes about all things music.
Our own Darlene P. has signed on as a writer/reviewer. She has written about "Sugarcane Rush", featuring fellow Kompozers Figsounds & Raul DelValle - check out her story about this FANTASTIC band, based in Miami, FL - they really are the 'Heart and Soul' of Miami!
Darlene's most recent contribution is near and dear to me as it's about the Kompoz project "The Conditon". The Condition is a collection of tunes I have sang on with so many of our fellow Kompozers.
If you would like to have your band, virtual or otherwise, reviewed or written about, please contact Darlene P or Alberto via Kompoz private message.

I figure if you are reading this, you have a web browser open already.
Whaddya say, click on thru to the Kompoz Facebook page and click the LIKE button? We need your help to boost the number of "LIKES" on Facebook.
In today's marketplace, Facebook is the RULE, not the exception. As Raf & I speak to potential partners, advertisers and vendors, one of the 1st question these days is: "How many LIKES do you have on Facebook?" The number is a paltry 270.
Nevermind the fact Kompoz has 10's of 1,000's subscribers world-wide, they just want to know how many LIKES we have. We have just a fraction of our gang clicking the LIKE button. Remember, you already have a browser open people, go on CLICK IT - it won't hurt a bit.
Now, this is not entirely self-serving......
Use the Kompoz Facebook page to post YOUR songs for all YOUR friends to listen to - why go to all the trouble to create a cool tune on Kompoz, then download to your desktop and upload on Soundcloud or some other destination, to just upload again to Facebook.
With the single click of a button, you can post your tracks directly from Kompoz to Facebook, Google+ or your own web site.
C'mon gang! We really need your help and the world needs to hear YOUR music!
