Duane Stephenson Honors Hillary Clinton

Reggae Singer Breaks from Tour to Honor the U.S. Secretary of State in Washington, D.C.

Duane Stephenson and U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, meet in Washington, D.C. during a World Food Program award ceremony on October 5, 2010.

Monday, October 11, 2010

(VP RECORDS, NEW YORK) - Reggae singer/songwriter Duane Stephenson was recently invited by the World Food Program (WFP) to perform in honor of the United States Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. The event took place at the George McGovern Leadership Award ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, October 5.

Stephenson was at the tail end of his U.S. tour with the Wailers, and the two parties previously teamed up for a song that manifested a partnership with the WFP. "The Wailers and I are partners with the World Food Program," says Stephenson.  "Our song 'A Step for Mankind' has helped to spread the message of the need for more action in addressing the issue of world hunger."

Stephenson was thus invited to perform at the ceremony that included political dignitaries and social activists from around the world at the prestigious event, where Secretary Clinton was presented with The George McGovern Leadership Award for her work to curb global hunger.

Stephenson reveals he is humbled and excited by the experience. "It's so inspiring to be in the company of global politicians and dedicated corporate partners who share the same values and aspirations to eradicate hunger," states Stephenson. "Food is a common bond that unites every single life form on this planet, we all require it to live, yet a billion people each night go to bed hungry and 25,000 of them die."

Stephenson disclosed his work with the World Food Program will continue as he sees the issue of world hunger as one that is very important to him. "I was happy to be there to see Secretary Clinton get this award as she has fought for this issue for years now. Hunger affects a billion of our brothers, sisters and children in 80 countries. This award will bring added attention and raise awareness of the issue."

Duane Stephenson just wrapped up touring the U.S. as the opening act for the legendary Wailers, and promoting his sophomore album Black Gold, released by VP Records on September 28, 2010. Black Gold is the highly anticipated follow-up to Stephenson's debut album From August Town, which was released by VP Records in 2007 and was hailed as one of that year's best reggae albums.

PR: Joe Budden Is Back with Mood Muzik 4!

From Gio at E1 Music:

Joe Budden Is Back with Mood Muzik 4!


October 11, 2010


(New York, NY) — E1 Music is set to release the highly anticipated fourth installment of the “Mood Muzik” mixtape series by New Jersey’s own Joe Budden. Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst will be released on November 9th, 2010 and features appearances by all 3 fellow members of hip-hop supergroup Slaughterhouse as well as other big-name artists Fabolous and Lloyd Banks.

In 2003, Joe Budden released the first installment of what would become one of the premiere selling mix-tapes series of all time entitled Mood Muzik: Worst of Joe Budden. With massive street notoriety, Joe Budden signed to Def Jam Records in that same year and released major hits from his self-titled album, such as the timeless 2003 Grammy- nominated hit “Pump It Up” in the category of Best Male Rap Solo.

Winner of the 2003 Vibe Next Award, Joe went on to consecutively release the legendary and still unrivaled Mood Muzik 2: Can It Get Any Worse? (2005), the critically acclaimed Mood Muzik 3: For Better or For Worse (2007) and Mood Muzik 3: The Album (2008). The resurgent Budden once widely considered a casualty of the kind of major −label machinations that have derailed so many promising rap careers, has proven irrepressible, bursting back into public prominence with a landslide of vivid new verses. Since 2007, in addition to his mixtapes, he has released two CDs (Escape Route and the narrative−heavy "Padded Room"), the internet−only LP ("Halfway House"), and a spirited collaboration with hip−hop supergroup Slaughterhouse.

Joe Budden will do a national promo tour October 20th thru October 30th and will be making his way to Europe and Canada in the coming months.

One of the most consistent artists to date, his matchless lyrical artistry continues to garner him worldwide respect and success in such places as Europe, Africa and Asia.

The tracklist can be viewed below:

   1. Intro (Pray For Them)
   2. Come Along
   3. Remember The Titans (Ft. Fabolous, Lloyd Banks, & Royce Da 5’9”)
   4. Short Summer
   5. Role Reversal
   6. Mop Salad Skit (performed by Karon “Kdotonthebeat,” Performed by parks Vallely)
   7. No Idea
   8. Black Cloud
   9. Follow My Lead (Ft. Joell Ortiz)
  10. Weekend Warrior Skit (performed by Karon “Kdotonthebeat”)
  11. Sober Up (Ft. Crooked I)
  12. Hello Expectations
  13. Something To Ride To
  14. Stuck In The Moment (ft. Emanny, Performed by parks Vallely)

Devo Spice Update - 10/11/2010

Hey everyone,

Music is happening this weekend in Ohio.  You should be there.

--== Con On The Cob’s Comedy Music Extravagasm! ==--
The venerable and rapidly decreasing in weight Shoebox of Worm Quartet has been hard at work producing the music track for Ohio’s annual celebration of games, art, freaks, and fun.  Con On The Cob is one of the most unique conventions I’ve ever attended and it’s always a lot of fun.  This year they’re planning an Iron Chef like event for artists.  And then there are the freaks.  That would be us- the people who for some reason try to make you laugh in song form.

Con On The Cob’s Comedy Music Extravagasm runs all weekend and features 16 funny type people and a couple panels thrown in for good measure.  Here’s the full run down:

8:00pm: Max DeGroot
8:30pm: Power Salad
9:00pm: Rob Balder
9:30pm: Positive Attitude
10:00pm: Worm Quartet

12:00pm: Podcasting Panel
1:00pm: Dementia Radio 10th Anniversary Panel
2:00pm: Main Stage Concert (2 hours featuring damn near everybody)
4:00pm: Soggy Potato Chips
4:30pm: Carrie Dahlby
5:00pm: ShiSho
7:00pm: 19 Action News
7:30pm: Witherwings
8:00pm: Norm Sherman (the guest of honor, from Drabblecast)
9:00pm: Nuclear Bubble Wrap
9:30pm: the great Luke Ski
10:00pm: Devo Spice (Hey, that’s me!)

11:30am: Derwood Bowen
12:00pm: Cirque du So What
12:30pm: Dementia All-Star Request Hour

I’ll be doing 2 songs during the main stage concert and then the half hour show at 10.

Spice Rack subscribers, who pay me money each month and get (among other things) a LONGER episode of The Insider with additional and exclusive content, should use this URL:

There.   Now there’s no excuse not to watch.  Unless you don’t like seeing my nose hairs.

--== Marco And The Red Granny Episode 2 ==--
Marco And The Red Granny Episode 2 is now live.  Hub Magazine was having some technical difficulties so it took a while to post but it’s ready now for all your listening pleasure.  You can listen to the MP3 or just read the text of the story at the official web site here:

Marco And The Red Granny is a science fiction story written by Mur Lafferty.  I am narrating the audio version for her.  If you enjoy the story please consider donating to her.  Mur is a very hard working woman who needs more purple hair dye.

That’s it for now folks.  Don’t forget to listen to The Funny Music Podicast for all your inside the FuMP and behind the scenes talk on the songs posted at  And be sure to keep an eye on The FuMP.  I should have a new song posting shortly.
