FRIDAY, OCT. 4 – Artist Showcase. Same great location. Guest artists TBA.




Corporate greed.  The 99%.  Occupy Movement.  We've all read about the redistribution of wealth and lack of justice for all.  Is it no wonder that artists and visionaries for centuries have sounded wake-up calls for anyone paying attention?  COPUS just completed its latest music video "Haves & Have Nots" that addresses this imbalance and precedes the release of the full CD by the same name. 


The music video was recorded by Jimmy Hobson at MarinWest Studios.  As both a drummer and engineer, Jimmy has several gold and platinum records on his resume (Celine Dion, Hall & Oates) and has toured and played with a long list of luminaries including Chris Isaak, Billy Preston and Joan Baez.  Big props also to footage by Aline Guetta, video editing by Michael Ndah, and guest vocals by Barbara Jaspersen.

“Eastern Breeze” - a track from the upcoming Phoenix Rising CD 'Mystic Places' – was nominated for best new age/ambient song by the Hollywood Music and Media Awards. Phoenix Rising (aka composer/pianist Wendy Loomis and flutist Monica Williams) is currently raising funds on IndieGogo to finish recording and manufacturing 'Mystic Places'. 200 copies of the CD will be donated to the National Cancer Research Foundation to give to donors, cancer patients, and survivors.


Phoenix Rising has raised $3,850 of their $6,000 goal in just 2 days! You can contribute to this worthy cause – and get some really cool perks - by visiting their Indie Gogo campaign page at:
