Also from Los Angeles, CA
comes the acoustic folk/pop artists Ships Have Sailed with their latest
release titled "Whispers." The new five-song release begins with the
gentle melody of "Lucky" as Ships Have Sailed slowly introduces
themselves to you. The acoustic pop tones of "Out Of Time" and the
quiet, folk appeal of "Criminal" showcases the strength in their
songwriting. The album closes with "Midnight" as the song's stark
delivery leaves us with wanting more from this young band. To find out

Next, from Chicago comes the red-hot debut album titled "Test Market Fresh"
from jazzy-rockers Fire Hot Opera. Influenced by the early days of
doo-wop and Broadway soul, their new thirteen-song release is compact
and full of energy. Beginning with the smooth jazz of "As Long As I Got
Music In Me," you transported back to a simpler time with the song's
swinging rhythm. The tempo picks up for the rockabilly flavor of "Make
The People Happy" and the sixties soul of "Lovers Owe Much." The mild
rock of "Next Time Around" and the upbeat, soul-infused "Laugh When I
Feel Like" showcases a band with maturity far beyond just their solo
album. To find out more about Fire Hot Opera and their new release "Test
Market Fresh," please visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/Fire-Hot-Opera.
Finally, from Brooklyn, NY comes the songwriting partnership of Amy Priya and
Stephen Sunshine, known as Sunshine Nights. Their latest release is a
short, three-song EP, beginning with acoustic, traditional dixieland
jazz of "From Behind" and the storytelling country/folk appeal of "Down
On The G." These two songs were recorded in Savannah, GA and New York
City, while in between they stopped at Jack White's Third Man Records to
record "A Thousand Love Song" in the Voice-o-Graph booth. The
scratchiness of the recording works perfectly into the duo's nostalgic
style. To find out more about Sunshine Nights and their latest release
