Dream Reporter – White Horse
“You’re just not the one for me.” Simple as that, the discussion took a different route. He scratched his head in confusion. She stared at him with lazer focus, as he was waiting for some indication that he ‘got it’. But nope. That wasn’t going to happen today. She wondered if she needs a relationship like this in her life. She often thought this to herself, but this was the first time she seriously considered it. “Why can’t you get me?” she mumbled under her breath. He then suddenly stepped to her and hugged her. “I know I frustrate you a lot of the time,” as he gently whispered in her ear. “But in some way I do get you. Just give me time.” DREAM REPORTER has a knack for telling stories of curiosity within a realm of the untraveled. The catchy song of ‘White Horse’ will morph in your head, the way you want it to. And at the end of it all, it’ll make heck of a lot of sense.

Gone Gone Beyond – Things Are Changing
“We had the honor of playing this song at the 2018 United Nations General Assembly. “Things are changing, for the better this time.” Music is our medicine. We believe in the power of music to unify humanity. So much of what we hear in music divides us. We believe in creating music that heals.” We surely agree. It’s not a panacea, but it’s pure love that we all can dig and keep it going for the generations now, and to come. GONE GONE BEYOND is a project of David Block, joined by multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriters Danny Musengo, Kat Factor Mel Seme and Paul Weinfield.
A Joker’s Rage – Ballet to the masses
Freddie Mercury, the incomparable maestro of millions of fans and leader of the mega band QUEEN, was the inspiration of this single ‘Ballet To The Masses’ by A JOKER’S RAGE.

Freddie was one of the definition for excellence. A JOKER’S RAGE would agree. A fabulous rockin’ tribute by Zakky Boy Taylor, Adam ‘Twiggy’ Gauton, Geordie Ginface, and Matt ‘Bam Bam’ Collinge.
