GROOVE CORPORATION RELEASES VIDEO FOR "BLIND MAN WITH A CIGARETTE"


Golden Horseshoe-based blues/funk/r' n'b/soul group Groove Corporation proudly releases their first video to support the song "Blind Man with a Cigarette" from their debut CD "Record Prophets".
The song is danceable funky blues in style, with lyrics that constitute a warning from a caring friend about living a reckless life with no regard to who gets hurt, like a "blind man with a cigarette", or a "mad bull in a china shop".
Beautifully filmed in natural light by Kevin Staye (Left of Normal Productions) , in the very same space the album was recorded (bassist Steve Hilbert's historic stone home in downtown Hamilton ), the video captures the joy this band feels when they perform together.
Groovecorp has kept busy over the winter months and economic downturn by writing material for their next CD, and filming the video for "Blind Man with a Cigarette". They also garnered two Hamilton Music Award nominations, one for Blues Recording of the Year, and Lily Sazz for Keyboard Player of the Year.
The CD Record Prophets is available through CD Baby, iTunes, and other online sources. Watch for Groove Corporation at the Beaches Jazz Festival (Toronto), the Corktown (Hamilton), Brando's (Brantford), and lots more to come.

Groove Corporation Nominated for Two Hamilton Music Awards

Groove Corporation nominated for two Hamilton Music Awards! Below is the current press release and a comment from moi!


Groove Corporation is very happy to announce that the band has been nominated for two Hamilton Music Awards. Their debut CD "Record Prophets" garnered a nomination for "Blues Recording of the Year", and in the Piano /Keyboard Player of the Year category, Lily Sazz received a nomination. The Hamilton Music Awards will be held at the McIntyre Theatre on Sunday, December 6th.


The HMA nominations announcement comes hot on the heels after the band's recent news of signing with European promoter Peter Holmstedt of Hemifrån, based in Sweden, whose company will be promoting, marketing, and representing Groove Corporation throughout all of Europe.


--------------------------------------

As the Principal Producer of this album I am very pleased with the nomination for "Blues Recording of the Year". I also send my congratulations to our keyboard player Lily Sazz, for her nomination as "Piano/Keyboard Player of the Year".


We worked hard on this album! A lot of sweat and hours to make a record that has the element and feeling of the band playing "live", or as our European representative, Peter Holmstedt says:


"It is really great to hear an album where the songs, the performance, the overall feeling, really creates a "picture" for the listener."


I want to mention my co-producer and engineer Ian Nielsen who put in many hours and over 300 Tim Horton's coffees' to achieve this recording. lol


Thanks Ian, and enjoy the nomination!
