U.K. Release Update & More Shows!

     Big thanks to all of you for making our new CD “Four Corners Of A Tiny Planet” a beautiful success!  Since its U.S. release, there’s been a lot of action from radio, like being Julian Lennon's “Pick of the Week” on his show on San Francisco’s ENERGY 92.7! “Romantic Hippy Gunfighter” was put into rotation on Napa station KVYN, and TBL were featured on KWMR's "World Playground" with Marc Matheson, and KRCB’s “Percussion Discussion”. Very cool! Keep listening to these exceptional stations for music programming with soul =)

      “Four Corners” is also getting spins overseas, particularly in the U.K., where some top media have picked it up and it will be available in-stores starting next week (Nov. 7). If you or someone you love is in the U.K., go pick up this special import, and share it with your friends and family!

      For live shows, we’ve been “kicking it hard” from Canada to California, and spicing things up with some unique performances including some exciting new artists.

      This Friday, Nov. 5th, The Beautiful Losers are headlining the Starry Plough in Berkeley, and our set features Punjabi DJ/rapper Mixman Shawn and singer Jasmine Sandlas, playing their song “Muskan”.  For a taste of their sound, watch the new music video “Jawani” and enjoy:

KWMR "World Playground"

Hey Everybody

Sorry for the long delay!! Its been a busy month and I've been travelling all over Canada and of course performing here in California. A big thanks to the person who posted our version of "Ask D.N.A" from Anime Evolution. We had such a great time in Vancouver! I've been reading about the new production of Cowboy bebop thats supposed to star Keanu Reaves!? Yikes! I heard he's worried that he may be too old to play the part by the time the movies production is completed. Keep your fingers crossed on that one all you anti-Keanu people out there.

Last weekend saw The Beautiful Losers featured on KWMR's "World Playground" with Marc Matheson. It was a great show and Marc was an awesome host. Check out "World Playground" on sunday afternoons for some great World Music grooves!! Halloween is coming up soon and the following weekend The Beautiful Losers Featuring Mixman Shawn and Jasmine, Katie Garibaldi, Matt Adams and RoygBiv and The Mnemonic Devices will be rockin The Starry Plough in Berkeley. Please see the listings for details and see you there!!

Peace

Tokyo/San Francisco "California Roll" Dreaming

Hello Everybody

A big thanks to all the folks at Anime Evolution for taking care of us a few weeks back in Vancouver. We had a great show and a great time!! It was amazing to be in Vancouver for the convention with all the warm vibes from all of the people enoying cosplay etc.Even though I am from Saskatchewan originally I lived in Tokyo for nearly half my life in the Setagaya ward that neighbours with Shibuya. Setagaya is host to large number of Japanese musicians,actors, composers (Kanno Yoko etc) and is a beautiful laid back area of Tokyo with plenty of great restaurants and bars where I would regularily run into people in the Anime and music world. I still make regular trips back to Tokyo for music projects and the past year has been a very exciting one for me. The single "Strawberry Rainbow" that I co-wrote and sang with a project called Studio Apartment www.studioapartment.jp hit #2 on the itunes dance charts Japan and our tour was a sold out affair culminating in the cd release party at Studio Coast-Ageha arena. My work with NHK and the hit Anime TV series called "Little Charo" is shaping up to be another hit with over 11.4 million hits in the past two months!! I sing the theme song, co-wrote two other songs on the show and voice act as the young cheetah character "Duma".Stay tuned for more news and updates on TBL activities here in the San Francisco Bay area!

Cheers

Anime Evolution

Hey all you Anime Otaku!!

It was great to see you all at Anime Evolution and play on the main stage last weekend. People were quite excited to hear us play Ask D.N.A from Cowboy Bebop (which I sing on the movie soundtrack) as well as the Wolfs Rain closing song "Strangers" written by myself and Yoko Kanno. The whole band enjoyed all the great costumes and the great vibe. It was three days of pure fun and great weather! Wow talk about hot in Vancouver...35 degrees celcius.The Beautiful Losers are back in San Francisco getting ready for some upcoming Bay area shows, radio interviews etc.

I`ll keep you posted on upcoming music for anime shows I have been working on for NHK tv in Japan. "Little Charo" in particular should already be available to preview online and the songs should be out on DVD in Japan by September. Hope you all get a chance to see the show which is extremely popular in Japan. I co-wrote three of the the theme songs, sang one and voice acted for the character of Duma the young cheetah.
