Melodic Revolution Records Turns Five

A lot has happened since the early days when we first opened our brick and mortar store.

Here is a quick recap. October 1st 2004 we open Melodic Revolution a music store. August 2005 I assemble some friends to Host the first Clinton Art and Music Festival. 2006 We open a live venue which hosted shows to over 300 bands over the next 2 years 2006 We formed Melodic Revolution Records the label with 2 signings. 2007 We closed our store and venue and moved back to Florida. September 2009 we launch Official Website October 2009 We launch Power of Prog a site dedicated to progressive music. 2010 We signed 6 artists and released 7 albums 2011 We signed 14 artists and released 19 albums and 1 live DVD. July 2011 Sees the launch of a new radio show "Inside the Music" with co-host singer, songwriter and producer John Orr Franklin which is broadcast every Wednesday from 12 pm to 2 pm EST via AiiRadio.net

So here we are seven years later, celebrating 5 years as a label. and Power of Prog turns 2. It has been a hell of a ride with many learning curves along the way but I am blessed by all the friends I have made along the way and the support that everyone has shown. I look forward to the future and the many new friends I have yet to make. It is with these friends old and new that we will make a difference in the modern era of music.

Melodic Revolution Records Signs John Orr Franklin

Newly signed, Melodic Revolution Records recording artist, John Orr Franklin release’s new digital single “Alpha and Omega” In a statement from John Orr Franklin In an effort to take the first single “Alpha and Omega” to the next level, I brought on Gavin Harrison, drummer from the band Porcupine Tree, as a special guest on the song. Gavin is the drummer I had in mind when I was writing the demos for this album, so naturally the end result is a perfect fit that stays true to my original vision and then some. Nearing completion of his third full length album, John has begun releasing a series of digital singles to determine the best possible format and packaging for the new release. Ultimately, feedback from the fans will determine the final format for the album. The band would very much like to see the project fully realized on a double vinyl LP with professional cover artwork and digital downloads. The band plans to use the proceeds from sales of the albums first digital singles and they are also planning a fan-based fundraiser on Kickstarter.com in order to see this dream into reality. The new album entitled “Soldier On” is a science fiction based story that follows one soldier through his personal trials as he discovers his true identity within the grandeur of a universe that has suddenly gotten much smaller. “Alpha and Omega” is now available at many popular Digital Distributors; iTunes, Amazon, emusic, Zune, Napster, Bandcamp, Melodic Revolution Records and others.

Dearly Beloved,
Please find attached a song that was given to me by God in answer to my
prayers so that it may be passed on to the waking world.

It is by the Power of the Holy Name of our Lord Jesus Christ that I send
this message to you and in which you receive it.

The fruit of the Lord's Prayer is upon us all...
...Be guided by His hand and join me in bringing this song to the world so
that His Will Be Done On Earth As It Is In Heaven!

Love Peace Truth and Light

Vinyl - The Original Black Is Back!

Actually vinyl never really left us it just took a backseat to technology. CDs became all the rage in the mid 80s and started losing their luster as the internet and mp3s took hold. And the good old album just lingered in the background waiting to make its move. Well there is no time like the present to get back in the groove. We have been selling vinyl for years in our online store, and we thought it was time to reach out and let you know we are planning on expanding our vinyl sales to independent releases so if you’re a band that has released or are planning on releasing your next album on vinyl (full length, ep or even as a 7” single) then drop us a line as we may be interested in stocking your music. Here are a few articles about the comeback of vinyl.

MUSICIANS FOR OIL RELIEF Musicians for Oil Relief is Melodic Revolution Records 3rd Charity release on its new imprint charity label There Is Hope Records. We all heard and were deeply saddened by the Gulf Oil Disaster as it affected many US coastal regions especially hard hit areas like Louisiana, who has experienced much hardship in the last few years.

Musicians for Oil Relief is another wonderful release to help those in need; human, flora and fauna alike, affected by this horrific man-made disaster. At the moment there are only plans for this digital release with proceeds being donated to Charity via Music for Relief.

We hope you enjoy the music. MUSICIANS FOR OIL RELIEF FEATURES Steve Shannon - No Where... Now Here The Coustics - For A While Maggie Seligman - Of Our Time Carmella Inchierchiera - Homeless, Hungry, Crying in the Rain Phil Naro - I Know What It's Like Jim Crean - Collen Allison VonBuelow - Broken Hyacintus - Sacred Sound David Kelly - Secrets Oracle - Kings Of Future Past Sahara Rain - Black Gold Drawzznikk - Maybe Sonic Rebellion - No End In Sight

There Is Hope

We are excited to announce that our newest Charity Release “The Christmas Gift” was released yesterday through our new charity imprint label tih records. “The Christmas Gift” is not your traditional Holiday release in fact many of the songs are have nothing to do with Christmas or the Holidays rather songs from the heart.

So you might ask yourself what is the purpose of this release called “The Christmas Gift” if it’s not an album filled with holiday tracks.

“The Christmas Gift” is an album of songs donated by 14 bands and or solo artists to help raise money for the homeless and displaced families. As many as 3.5 million Americans are homeless each year. Of these, more than 1 million are children and on any given night, more than 300,000 children are homeless and these stats only reflect homelessness in America.

Where does the money go for this release? We are donating all proceeds to Habitat For Humanity via Music for Relief an organization set up by musicians and helping those in need.

Where can I purchase this release? There Is Hope Records Shop - http://thereishoperecords.bandcamp.com/

How Can I help? 1. Post the link of “The Christmas Gift” on your page bulletins and blogs to help spread the word. 2. Donate food and blankets and other essential needs to your local church, the Salvation Army and so on. 3. You can donate money or become a volunteer in your community.

We thank you for taking time out of your busy day to help anyway you can this holiday season. All the best, Nick Katona

Melodic Revolution Records launches imprint charity label

tih Records (There Is Hope Records)

Is a newly formed charity imprint label by Melodic Revolution Records to help raise awareness and money for those in need like the victims of Haiti, The Gulf Disaster and the Homeless in our country and around the world. All proceeds from our releases go to charity via Music For Relief, Habitat for Humanity and other organizations.

We know that we alone cannot make a difference but it is our hope that the work we do bringing talented musicians together for the greater good of mankind can somehow be just one more tool in fighting the good fight.

We would like to thank all the wonderful and talented musicians for donating their time and music to our projects, it is only because of them that we can do what we do.
