2022 Cadium Music Year End

2022 was a year in which Cadium Music included plenty of co-writes for artist releases. It also included further expansion with Alternator Records and its publishing company, Vegan Vulcan Music. Writer Activity Among some of the writer highlights, Curtis Martin continued his work with Ekoh and Rachel Lorin, as well as co-writing and handling some production on the Ookay album, Very Special. Martin also had success co-writing and producing Catch Your Breath's song, "Dial Tone," which led to the band's deal with Thriller Records. Rob Endling continued his work with developing artist, KD Badlung, while Sean Kennedy also had c0-writes with Ekoh and [...]

Great Songs You Might Not Have Heard Of

Cadium Music Publishing has added an additional playlist to its Spotify account. Titled, Great Songs You Might Not Have Heard Of, the list shines a light on non-Cadium tracks that haven't received the attention they deserve. The obvious question is why would Cadium do that? While Cadium is proud of its writer roster and always wants more people to be exposed to the many great songs in its catalog, there is never enough great material being exposed to consumers. (How many times do we complain about some of the mediocre music on the airwaves?) Another reason is that this list can serve to [...]

Cadium Music’s 2021 Year-End Wrap and What’s Next

Admittedly, this post should have come earlier in the quarter. Instead of a close look at what transpired over the last few months, this piece has morphed into becoming Cadium Music's 2021 Year-End Wrap. The year got off to a fast start with the signing of writer and Rikets frontman, Scott Rose. COVID-19, however, continued to interrupt the creative process and the production of the new Rikets album, which included potential collaborations with Mark Lorenzo, got shelved. Southbound 75 Continue to Rise Southbound 75, continued to build its base in south Florida and finally released Tales from the Black Swamp through Bad Jeu [...]

Piel Signed to Birs Recordings

About a year ago, I decided to add an A&R/tastemaker service to the Cadium operation. The first act I decided to champion was Los Angeles band, Piel. After a few diversions along the way, I'm happy to say that Piel signed to Birs Recordings. The record, which is actually a six-song EP, has been completed and should be released in the fall. Shortly after announcing the A&R service in June of last year, I wrote about Piel and the hope that the band would release new material in 2020, but that didn't happen. What happened was COVID. Deal Tabled, Then Revived In September [...]

Vegan Vulcan Music strikes a Deal with Cadium

Client, Michael James, has a few developments happening on his end and among them, an administration deal between his newly minted publishing company, Vegan Vulcan Music and Cadium Music. As Vegan Vulcan Music strikes a deal with Cadium, the belief is that it should lead to more opportunities for VVM's future roster. Publishing and Records James has completed a new album and intends to grow VVM through the various co-writes he has on it. The new album will be called Shelter In Place. Shelter In Place features special guests and showcases some new and developing talent that James selected. The album does not [...]

Cadium Signs Scott Rose

Cadium signs Scott Rose, the multi-faceted singer/songwriter/producer, to a publishing deal. The founder of the metal act, Rikets, will also be bringing the band back in a new incarnation with a new album, due this year. Rose's creative history is littered with collaborations with former members of Creed, Breaking Benjamin, and Powerman 5000. He is also the other creative half of the country rock act, Havala (co-founded by Southbound 75's Mark Lorenzo). The deal is primarily two-fold, as it will include Rose's back-catalog, (Rikets included) and future works with an array of songwriters. Havala just released a new song, "Too Sober," which is [...]

Two Mixes by Michael James for Chuck Leavell Documentary

Michael James mixed two Eric Church songs that are in the just-released film documentary "Chuck Leavell: The Tree Man." Leavell, the legendary pianist/keyboardist whose career spans five decades and includes work with The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton and John Mayer, to name a few, is revealed as more than a musician; he is also a custodian of the environment with commitment to family. (Coinciding with his environmental efforts, Leavell is co-founder of one of the most informative websites on the environment, Mother Nature Network.) James came into the project through the film's director, Allen Farst, who has hired James [...]

Southbound 75 to Reach a New Level in Its Career

One of the silver linings of the COVID pandemic is that not all states have consistently locked down their bars and live music venues. If you speak to live acts in California, for example, many will tell you that they are not happy being cooped up in their living spaces and not being able to unleash their creativity in front of their fans. Due to Florida guidelines, however, the state has allowed country rockers Southbound 75 to reach a new level in its career. In case you haven't been following the story, Florida has a different attitude toward quarantines and lock downs. And [...]
