The Quirky And Infectious 5-Piece Is Interviewed By KROQ FM
And Jets On A West Coast Tour
37 Records, initially known for its talented singer/songwriter roster of artists and publishing and licensing deals, has really been building the label’s now extremely strong artist development and A&R departments, with the addition of White Apple Tree, Nikki Forova and Melody Zephyr in the last four years. Therefore, it is no surprise 37 Records has released a bold new musical hound into the wild of the music industry. The label has signed a deal with rising So Cal underground pop band The Gromble.
The band’s name, “The Gromble” comes from the teen sensation Nickelodeon show Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and is the name of cartoon’s strict headmaster the boys explained in their recent interview with KROQ FM. KROQ reviewed the rockers as, “…The Gromble even cooler especially since they’re perfected a modernized version of Weezer’s wry, crunchy pop angst, The Pixies’ quirky, angular guitars, and Pavements’ acerbic noise pop with a dash of Elvis Costello sophistication.” The Gromble, who consist of Spencer Askin(vocals, guitar), Trevin Eck(bassist), Steven Lindenfelser(lead guitar) Michael Lee(keyboards) and Stefan Macarewich(drums) also stated in the interview the amazing feeling of being nominated for “Best New Artist” at the 10th Anniversary 2011 OC Music Awards, after releasing their singles “Toto,” “NYC Frog,” and fan favorite “Creepy Crawly.” The tracks sparked the interest of 37 Records’ President Steven McClintock who decided to push the boys’ upcoming album slated for late 2011. The untitled album will be a released both digitally and physically, with North America distribution through Burnside. Plus, 37 Record’s sister company 37 Songs/ Mc James Music Inc., also signed a 3-year publishing deal with three of The Grombler’s members, all of whom are songwriters, Lindenfelser, Askin and Eck.
For the month of April the five guys, who all met in the summer of 2009, will embark on West Coast major city tour.

INDIE PUBLISHER 37 SONGS/MCJAMES MUSIC INC.
ANNOUNCES THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED RETURN
OF VOCALIST CARAH FAYE TO SHINY TOY GUNS
The ‘Queen Of The Guns’
Beloved Lead Singer Carah Faye
Returns To Shiny Toy Guns For
The Electo-Rock Reunion Of The Decade
In keeping with the age old adage, ‘things being better the second time around,’ Los Angeles based Grammy nominated electro-rock pioneers, Shiny Toy Guns (STG) is looking towards a bright new future, now that original singer Carah Faye has rejoined the group after a 2 1/2 year hiatus. STG, along with their publishers 37 Songs/McJames Music Inc., recently announced they couldn’t be more excited about their reunion with Faye, so in homage to that the band placed a shocking 30-day countdown clock running on their website boasting to their die-hard fans the return of their beloved female singer reuniting with members Jeremy Dawson (keyboardist/producer/programmer), Chad Petree (producer/lead vocalist/guitars/programmer), Mikey Martin (drums/ percussion) and introducing multi-instrumentalist Daniel Johansson (producer/keyboardist/programmer).
37 Song/McJames Music Inc. are thrilled to have one of their top acts of licensing back. President Steven McClintock of 37 Songs said, “We got into this business because of songs and Shiny Toy Guns always delivers the magic.” Faye’s return is revealed in an epic and moving short film called “Together Again,” which was shot on 35mm film on the breath taking Mammoth Mountain in Mammoth, Calif. Fans proclaimed their love for the video stating their emotion as, “Tears are literally streaming down my face right now. When Carah took her hood off, I literally busted into tears.” Others shared their happiness as, “The Guns are back for sure and the ‘Queen of the Guns’ has finally come home.” While some fans took note of their unique approach in delivering their message, “This video is absolutely beautiful, ethereal & symbolic in so many ways that representing a reunion in any other way would not have had the same impact.”
The group went its separate ways in 2008, after thousands of live sold-out shows and numerous TV appearances promoting their Grammy nominated debut CD, We Are Pilots. Their powerful indietronica fusion hit singles “Le Disko,” “You Are The One” and “Rainy Monday,” all from the We Are Pilots release, really paved the music industry wave in 2006 to what is popular now of electronic sounds coming from today’s music. The band is currently recording in Los Angeles with a goal of completing their new album III by late spring 2011, along with plans for an upcoming World tour this summer. In the meantime, Shiny Toy Guns is sharing yet another magical moment unleashing “The Sun,” their first new original single in over 3 years, taken from the upcoming album “III.” “The Sun” is currently #1 on L.A.’s KROQ Locals Only chart and has been rising on the station’s Top 5 at 5.
About 37 Songs/McJames Music Inc.,
“It all starts with a song” goes the old saying, and to us it also ends with a song. Long after the fad has faded and the moment has passed it may be hard to recall who sang “Stardust”, “As Time Goes By” or even in generations to come “Imagine” or “I Hope You Dance”, but the songs will still be played. They have a life of their own. At 37 Songs/McJames Music Inc., our goal is to nurture the writer to give the song a chance to be born. We understand that everything coming out of our writers will not be immediately recorded and some of the songs will never make the charts. But we as publishers will be there to offer our suggestions to improve the lyric, our production skills to better the demo, and our networking abilities to allow the song a chance in a very demanding and crowded marketplace. A part of 37 Records, 37 Songs/McJames Music represents Pamela Phillips Oland, Chad Petree, Jeremy Dawson (Shiny Toy Guns), Stephen Petree, Melody Zephyr, Ryan and Taylor Lawhon (White Apple Tree) and Cathy-Anne McClintock.

CATHY-ANNE MCCLINTOCK EARNS A
HOLLYWOOD MUSIC IN MEDIA AWARD
NOMINATION FOR HER HIT SINGLE
‘I WANNA LIVE LIKE THAT’
37 Records’ Country/Folk/Americana artist Cathy-Anne McClintock’s splash on the music scene just got bigger with word of her Hollywood Music In Media Award nomination for Best Folk/Acoustic Song for her hit single “I Wanna Live Like That”.
“I’m so happy to be nominated and honored to be representing acoustic music, and especially honored to be nominated for getting to sing ‘I Wanna I Live Like That’ with my folk/bluegrass hero Tim O’ Brien,” says McClintock.
The Hollywood Music In Media Awards will take place on November 18 at The Highlands located in the Kodak Theater Complex/Hollywood & Highland Center. The HMMAs recognizes and honors the music of visual mediums, the talented individuals responsible for it, and the music of both mainstream and independent artists from around the globe.
The nomination adds to an incredible year of nominations for McClintock, including Bluegrass Inspirational Artist for “I Wanna Live Like That” at the Inspirational Country Music Awards, Americana Song Of The Year for the same song and for Americana Artist Of The Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards.
Music Connection magazine named McClintock one of the Hot 100 Unsigned Bands & Artists of the year (December 2009 issue).
Since moving to Southern California to focus on her solo career several years ago, she established herself as a formidable performer with gigs at hotspots like The Canyon Club, The Brixton, Hermosa Beach Series, Genghis Cohen, The Mint, Kulaks, Hallenbecks and various special events, including Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters, Sunset Serenade Series, Far West Folk Alliance, Canadian Music Week and the popular folk series The Living Tradition. At a particularly memorable gig at the House of Blues on Sunset, she opened for Canadian Celtic rockers Great Big Sea for an audience comprised of fellow Canadians; one of the highlights was Russell Crowe sitting in and singing a few Johnny Cash tunes with the band.
McClintock’s emergence as a solo artist is simply the latest triumph in a career that would make anyone want to “live like that.” Shortly after the Vancouver born and raised performer and her older sister Trisha Gagnon formed their bluegrass band Tumbleweed in the 90s, they played their first show on a slate in British Columbia with superstars Dolly Parton and Dwight Yoakam at Music 91, a government sponsored road show designed to boost tourism.

IRELAND’S POPULAR ROCK BAND
FRIENDS OF EMMET
SIGNS WITH 37 RECORDS
AND DEBUTS ‘COMING APART’
The Title Track And Single From The Debut Album
Was Written About The Touching True Story
Of Suicide Survivor Kevin Hines
Who Miraculously Survived Jumping From The Golden Gate Bridge
The five-piece rock band Friends Of Emmet, hailing from Dublin, Ireland, recently signed with innovative indie label, 37 Records. Friends Of Emmet (F.O.E) formed in early 2009 consisting of Mark Leddy (vocals), Brian Lynam (guitar), Keith Geraghty (bass), Paul Dempsey (keyboards), and Lance Hogan (drums). The band just released their debut Coming Apart and re-located to Los Angeles to help push the launching of the album in United States.
Founder of 37 Records, Steven McClinctock, commented on the signing, “I was turned on to F.O.E. by a friend from Hevy D Music out of Canada and was completely taken by the sound of the band. We really wanted the opportunity to work with this Irish gem.”
The title track from the album Coming Apart was written about suicide survivor Kevin Hines of San Francisco, a man who miraculously survived jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. The song was created to explain the emotional story of depression, while underlining the miracle of second chances and the will to live. The tragic tale fueled F.O.E., who really wanted to create the powerful message via song to support and reach those who feel there is no way out, in hopes to save a life. The music video documentary for “Coming Apart” features Kevin Hines and was recently shot in L.A. It is set to debut online to fans and newcomers later this month.
The single is starting to gain radio airplay in Canada and across the U.S., landing F.O.E. to perform a few tracks at Yahoo Music headquarters this week and will be featured on Yahoo.com.
