Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) Produces Exquisite Debut EP for New Australian Indie Duo, Secret Solis, with Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) on the Drums

Adelaide, Australia, 2017-May-18 — /EPR Network/ — Between sold out tours of Australia and Canada in 2016, Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) invited new Australian indie folk / rock duo Secret Solis to record their debut EP, “Deep Down” at River House Studios near Byron Bay. The sessions produced a five track album of indie folk / rock anthems, the tracks resonating with both Led Zeppelin’s driving acoustic rock and the ethereal ballads of Pink Floyd. Jeff’s eastern palette adds an eclectic flavour to the EP that is reminiscent of his early albums with The Tea Party, as in Splendor Solis and Edges of Twilight. Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) joins the line up on drums providing a John Bonham / Ginger Baker style foundation for the albums songs.

Behind the Lyric

Richmond, Texas, 2017-May-02 — /EPR Network/ — “Go Away” A song that is available on itunes and amazon.com was written after the incident where Rapper Fifty cent mocked an autistic man. It was out of empathy for that man intertwined with my own hurt, that this song was written.

I was struggling emotionally and solicited the help of an ex-coworker. Instead of responding in a respectful manner, he berated me. I was in a difficult situation and had ongoing health issues. I reached out believing he would surely help or offer advice, but I misjudged who he was as a person and his response was unexpected.

That was emotionally difficult for me although, I was not publicly humiliated the way Andrew that autistic man was but because of my experience, I could empathize.

Fantasy Author Ron Glick Returns To Oz and Neverland

Fifth Book In the Oz-Wonderland Series Releases on March 1, 2017

Kalispell, Montana, 2017-Mar-03 — /EPR Network/ — In 2013, fantasy author Ron Glick broke away from his epic fantasy series and journeyed into the faery realms of Oz and Wonderland to chronicle the adventures of the classic heroines, Alice Liddell and Dorothy Gale. The result was a modern-day high fantasy series exploring the uncharted history shared between the two magical worlds. Last year, Glick expanded his magical realms to introduce Neverland into his masterful reworked Victorian-era fantasy.

In the original trilogy, Alice Liddell and Dorothy Gale united to save both Oz and Wonderland. But the Cheshire Cat warned that there were more faery realms that needed to be found, which led our heroines on a quest last year to meet Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and eventually a journey into Neverland. Meanwhile, the Wicked Witche Mombi is still plotting against the good forces of all the mystical realms united.
