Sylvia's SECOND BLOOM - The Hits Re-Imagined

Set For June 8 Release

'80s Icon Blossoms With New Interpretations Of "Drifter," "Nobody," "Cry Just A Little Bit" & More

 
 

Nashville, TN (May 11, 2018) - Academy of Country Music Female Vocalist Of the Year, Grammy nominee and multi-million selling '80s icon Sylvia is set to release her newest CD, SECOND BLOOM - The Hits Re-Imagined, on Red Pony Records June 8. The album is available for pre-order now from iTunes and CD Baby.  Fans who order digitally will receive "Like Nothing Ever Happened" as an instant gratification track. Those who prefer a disc, will have their album autographed by Sylvia and receive an email containing instructions on how to obtain their "grat track" download. The project's first single, a reprise of Sylvia's signature Country/Pop smash, "Nobody," has just been released to radio and programmers can download the track HERE

SECOND BLOOM includes 10 all-new interpretations of her # 1 / Top 10 hits from the RCA years (1979 to 1987). The Indiana-born songstress became known for her unique "Prairie Music" sound, with hits like "Drifter" and "Tumbleweed," and crossed over to the Pop market with the unforgettable "Nobody," which sold an astounding two million copies, spent 52 weeks on the Billboard charts, and was named BMI's Song of the Year. Sylvia's new version of "Sweet Yesterday" brings her life experience to bare with an even more poignant and meditative take on the song. "Cry Just A Little Bit" is updated with strings and drums with an infectious shuffle feel, while "Fallin' In Love" takes a decidedly Bluegrass spin that swings joyfully along as Sylvia's voice and Andy Leftwich's fiddle take turns in the spotlight. The disc closes with "You Can't Go Back Home," a song that was not previously released as a single, but serves as an allegory for Sylvia's approach to recording SECOND BLOOM. The song metaphorically reflects her intention to not re-record the songs note-for-note but to give them a fresh rendering. Sylvia's interpretation of the song is subtle, reflective, and memorable. This is Sylvia at her most powerful.


 

Message from Sylvia



The synthesizer-laden, Country/Pop sound of the past is replaced throughout with a cleaner, more streamlined and organic approach. Tin whistles and strings are paired, fiddle and classical guitar meet - and in each joining they form a magical backdrop for Sylvia's clear and soulful vocals. While much of her formative music is defined by a certain era and genre, the songs themselves are bound only by the artist's imagination. And Sylvia has imagination to spare. She and longtime collaborator John Mock modernized instrumentation and voicing and, in some cases, departed dramatically from the original production values. Consistent, however, are the signature licks that fans will recognize and Sylvia's genuine reverence for these tunes that form her artistic lineage.

"My desire was to bring my music from the '80s into alignment with the music I'm creating today," she notes.  "I wanted to breathe new life into the songs as if I was recording them for the first time while still honoring their musical identity. I believe the spirit of the music is just as relevant today as it was when these songs first bloomed."

On SECOND BLOOM, Sylvia bridges the gap, bringing these hits to life in a new way while paying homage to the music that made her a star. This is an album that is by turns introspective and carefree, evocative and joyful. Longtime fans will remember why they fell in love with Sylvia's music, while new admirers will be captivated by the purity of her voice and musical convictions.

How To Eat Your ABCs. "L" is for Lemon, a fruit oh-so-tart, it makes your lips pucker and quickens your heart" begins the L page of this easy-reading book that educates parents and children alike on healthy, organic eating. Kids join our adorable honeybee, BuzzBee, on an A to Z garden adventure of fun food facts and the magic of nature. Thought there was no fruit or vegetable that started with the letter "X"? Well, Buzzbee has one (and here's a hint: "It lives in deserts low and high, where cacti love it hot and dry"). Written entirely in rhyme, this delicious book is one fun way for kids to learn their alphabet and harvest a true appreciation for mother earth! Best for children ages 5-8, but younger kids love the colorful illustrations and honeybee character whose rhyming words of wisdom make for perfect bedtime reading.


 

The ABCs of Being Me is meant to be a collaborative work of art created by both the author and the reader. Once completed, this interactive alphabet book of character development will serve as a permanent reflection of how the readers viewed themselves and their world at a particular moment in time. Part journal, part scrapbook and part photo album - each completed activity book will be a personal time capsule to be opened, remembered and cherished over the course of a lifetime as we look back on the roads we've taken. Written in verse, this poetry book of core values promises to be a gateway to meaningful conversation between parents and children in any grade of elementary school.

The latest in cat calming products is here: Felisept® Home Comfort, popular across Europe and now available in the United States, is the ultimate in cat-calming care.

Unlike many other calming products marketed for cats, Felisept uses an extract of Nepeta cataria—commonly known as catnip or catmint—in its approach to helping cat households. Designed to reduce stress-related behaviors, it naturally soothes and calms distressed felines without the use of man-made chemical pheromones.

Whether caused by vet visits, new furniture, other pets, fireworks, or other common environmental changes, a cat’s reaction to stress can affect all human and animal members of the household, and can even be physically damaging to the home and furniture.

Cats may show their distress through scratching, lashing out at other animals or people, persistent meowing, spraying, or even going outside of the litterbox.

Ultimately, Felisept offers relief for the whole family: for cats, relief from feeling stressed or anxious, and for their parents, relief from the resulting behaviors that can be destructive and disrupt household harmony.

Felisept® Home Comfort is available as a fast-acting spray great for traveling and spot use in key areas, and as a plug-in diffuser for home use and coverage of full rooms. The products will soon be available at Amazon.com and independent pet retailers throughout the United States. To learn more, visit www.felisept.com.

Natalia Morris, oldest sister and main songwriter for SOUTHERN HALO, will join host Jon Patch this Saturday, April 21, live on his Talkin’ Pets radio show to chat about their upcoming album, as well as their love of animals and array of pets (fish, birds, cat, dog and hamster.)

The concept-driven, dream-inspired JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES. This 14-track package, produced by Catt Gravitt and Gerald O'Brien, mirrors the emotional and musical growth of Natalia, Hannah and Christina Morris, the three sisters from the Mississippi Delta who form SOUTHERN HALO.

Inspired by a dream of Natalia's, JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES features 10 songs written or co-written by the lead vocalist/guitarist, and four titles from Music City's hottest tunesmiths. The catchy ode to the glories of Southern womanhood, "Southern Halo," kicks off the project and marks the first "scene" of this movie-made-music.  A co-write with Roxie Dean, the strong, multi-layered vocals and sing-along chorus make this a natural choice for the first "instant gratification track" offered with each  iTunes and Amazon pre-order of the CD.  The disc is the second outing for the trio with SESAC's 2012 Writer of the Year Catt Gravitt (Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen) and Gerald O'Brien (Martina McBride, Trace Adkins) at the helm.

Continuing the album's theme is the first single "Anything Is Possible."  Written by Gravitt and award-winning songwriter/producer Carl Falk, the hooky, upbeat track is a veritable anthem to the power of positive thinking and is already resonating at Country radio.  A lyric video, featuring performance footage, can be seen on YouTube.

JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES explores the excitement found and challenges faced when chasing one's dream.  The eagerness to experience new places is offset by the longing for the constant comforts of home, while the idea that anyone can indeed reach for the stars is reinforced.  Natalia, Hannah and Christina continue to prove that dreams do come true - if you work hard and believe.  Highlights abound, and the tracks range from Rock-ish ("My Girls & Me") to beautifully poignant ("Not Today") to confrontational ("Hey Boy").

The album's title track is a Pop/Rock-infused, modern-day fairytale that features underscored Rap-style background vocals and a sultry yet whimsical feel.  Written by Gravitt, Jana Kramer and Brian Kierulf, "Just Like In The Movies" showcases SOUTHERN HALO's diversity and their fearless approach to music.  The track was singled in the U.K. late last year and enjoyed enormous success.  

"Missing Mississippi," written by Natalia and Jennifer Adan, slows things down with the true tale of Natalia's first night in her new Nashville home.  Sweet, reflective and emotional, the song shows that sacrifices are always made in pursuit of the dreams that inspire us.  Another track that shines the light on leaving, "Famous" tells the tale of the loneliness that can surround stardom.  Penned with Alex Dooley, the message is deep - and partially hidden by a seductive melody.  "Tom Girl," written with Melissa Bollea Rowe, describes a character familiar to the Morris sisters: someone who loves to get their hands dirty, but also loves to dress up for special occasions.  As Natalia says, "everyone talks about 'tom boys' or 'girly girls' - no one ever talks about 'tom girls.'  Christina loves fishing while Hannah rides horses and I enjoy building projects in our backyard, but we love to get prettied up for a night out.  We're all 'tom girls.'"

Tom girls they may be, but Natalia, Hannah and Christina are all driven by the same dream. Music inspired SOUTHERN HALO; now their songs are inspiring young Country fans everywhere.  Drummer Christina and bassist Hannah are still in their late teens, and Natalia just recently crossed over into her early 20s.  They're exploring, challenging themselves to take risks and raise their bar - and JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES proves they have reached new heights - and they are proud of it.  This new album is poised to follow the phenomenal success of their previous, eponymous CD, and is sure to bring new listeners to the fold as it breaks new ground for the trio.

MY PATIENTS AND OTHER ANIMALS

A Veterinarian’s Stories of Love, Loss & Hope

 
   

 

SUZY FINCHAM-GRAY

A Spiegel & Grau Hardcover & eBook | On Sale April 10, 2018

A heartwarming literary debut, MY PATIENTS AND OTHER ANIMALS: A Veterinarian’s Stories of Love, Loss, and Hope (Spiegel & Grau; On Sale April 10) by Suzy Fincham-Gray, explores the relationships we share with the animals in our lives, and the decisions we must make when they become sick.

Since she was a young girl, Fincham-Gray knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. After graduating from school in London, she began a journey that would take her from her home along the English-Welsh border to an Emergency Room in inner-city Philadelphia, where she treated her first (but not last) dog rushed in with a gunshot wound, to eventually landing in San Diego, where she now works at a private practice. Throughout her career, she has collected thousands of stories that have shaped both her personal and professional life.

Each chapter of MY PATIENTS AND OTHER ANIMALS is centered around, and named after, an animal Fincham-Gray has treated, drawing readers into her consulting room and behind the scenes to understand the complex challenges veterinarians face. We meet, among others, Zeke, a 16lb silver-brown tabby who suddenly stops eating; Ned, a rescue dog from Mexico with an unexpected illness; and Sweetie, a young pit bull terrier, whose emotional story illustrates the lengths doctors and owners will go to save a pet. Each animal comes with an owner equally as memorable, who experience varying traumas of their own. Entwined with stories of her patients, Fincham-Gray shares intimate details about her own pets that found their way into her life when she least expected it, and when she needed them the most.

Throughout her life, Fincham-Gray has maintained a passion for writing and holds an MFA from the University of California, Riverside. As her veterinary career progressed, she discovered writing to be an outlet through which she could explore the intersection of art and science in veterinary medicine, and work through the ethical and moral dilemmas she faced at work.

Fincham-Gray says, “When I first considered writing a book I was determined not to write a memoir. However, as I explored the subjects that interested me, I returned again, and again, to the career I have pursued for almost thirty years. This journey has required that I take a deeper and clearer look at my role, whether as a veterinarian or as an owner, and I have come to understand more about human relationships through my patients. I am a different doctor now than when I started writing this book, and I continue to evolve, as I view the difficulties I face daily in a new way.”

Fincham-Gray offers a unique, insider perspective on caring for an animal, and writes with the same tenderness she brings to her patients. Rich in warmth and humor, MY PATIENTS AND OTHER ANIMALSis a memorable story about the compassion, healing, and joy that animals bring to our lives.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Suzy Fincham-Gray is a veterinary internal medicine specialist based in San Diego. She holds her Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine from The Royal Veterinary College, University of London, did her internship and residency at University of Pennsylvania, and holds an MFA from University of California, Riverside at Palm Desert. She lives in San Diego with her husband, daughter, three cats, and two dogs.

 

 
   

 

In an interview, Suzy Fincham-Gray can discuss:

The risks and rewards of international pet adoption: The transportation of homeless pets across the country and around the world has been on a significant rise over recent years. International rescue organizations, animal welfare groups, and concerned citizens have worked to bring animals in need to the U.S. for re-homing. As a result, thousands of animal lives have been saved, but there must be more awareness and education brought to the detection and spread of disease beyond natural geographic boundaries.

Why pure-bred dogs are causing a canine health crisis:While society encourages the search for the cutest, perfectly-sized, or most uniquely colored pure-breds, science tells a different story. Human-controlled canine breeding is leading to hundreds of serious, potentially fatal, diseases hidden in their genes, including debilitating orthopedic problems, difficulty breathing and premature death. Recent DNA testing has allowed more accurate warnings of such diseases, but with the fluctuation of canine trends such as, for example, the recent popularity of squashed-faced breeds like the French Bulldog, more knowledge must be had of potential consequences.

Understanding the financial burdens of healthcare, and knowing how much is too much to spend: In 2017, it was estimated that Americans spent over $69 billion on their pets with 23% going towards veterinary bills. Intensive medical care and high risk surgeries can run into thousands of dollars with the most advanced treatments costing significantly more. Insurance is currently not mandatory for anyone adopting a pet and there is no form of animal Medicaid to cover what owners cannot afford, leading euthanasia to be an all too common consequence of an owner’s financial limitations. Pet owners must monitor disease and set care goal boundaries to know when it’s ethically and financially time to end the life.

What are veterinary specialists, and why your pet might need one: In the United States, there are more than 11,000 veterinarians in 22 recognized specialties. Like humans, pets with more complicated diseases that require advanced diagnostics, such a laparoscopy or MRI scans, and treatments, including chemotherapy, blood transfusions, and neurosurgery, can be referred to a specialist. Increasingly, veterinary specialty hospitals are popping up in major metropolitan areas across the U.S., offering care previously only available in university veterinary hospitals.

The special needs of geriatric pets: Domestic animals are enjoying longer, healthier lives than ever before—the average canine life expectancy has doubled in the last four decades, and indoor cats are living twice as long, on average; But with extended longevity comes the responsibility of caring for older pets with specific health needs, knowing what signs to look for that may indicate disease, and understanding ways their lives need to be made more comfortable.

What pets can teach us about the euthanasia debate: Healthcare-by-proxy, where healthcare decision making is taken on by a patient’s loved ones, is increasingly relevant in today’s medical world. Humans are living longer than ever before with recent life-saving and life-extending measures pushing the boundaries of longevity, but where do we draw the line. Veterinarians, who must advocate for their patients while also considering the wishes of the pet’s family, have been faced with this dilemma for decades.

More Praise for MY PATIENTS AND OTHER ANIMALS

"Fincham-Gray writes beautifully and thoughtfully, giving readers rare insight to the making of a compassionate doctor. Her passion for both science and the animals she cares for, combined with her eloquence as a writer, made me want Suzy as both my dogs' veterinarian and my own friend. My Patients and Other Animals is a fascinating, heartwarming read."

Teresa Rhyne, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller The Dog Lived (and So Will I) and The Dogs Were Rescued (and So Was I)

“Suzy Fincham-Gray's My Patients and Other Animals isn't just about one woman's love and care for animals and the people who love them, or about this veterinarian's big heart and deep intelligence, it's also about the ethical complexity of caring for other living beings, and a clear-eyed look at what binds us to other creatures of the world and why it matters. It's also about what it takes to have a humane heart, and how this makes all of us, pet owners or animal lovers or not, more human. A beautiful, tender, and magnificent read.”

Emily Rapp Black, New York Times Bestselling author of The Still Point of the Turning World and Poster Child: A Memoir

“[Suzy Fincham-Gray] writes extremely well, and her enthusiasm shines through on every page…I enjoyed reading this book, and while doing so I was made aware of the author’s absolute dedication to her work; like James Herriot she portrays her profession in a very good light.”

Jim Wight, author of The Real James Herriot: A Memoir of My Father

“If you have ever heard a cat purr or felt a dog lick your hand, you will find this poignant—and often exhilarating—story of a young veterinarian’s journey into the science of caring for animals an irresistible read. My Patients and Other Animals will break your heart, give you hope, and send you running to the nearest shelter to adopt a pet.”

Mark Haskell Smith, author of Naked at Lunch

“My Patients and Other Animals is a gem of a book. Dr. Suzy Fincham-Gray's nonstop life taking care of all sorts of nonhuman animals in need is a deeply inspirational and personal journey, a model for all, filled with joy, sorrow, tears, love, and loss. We are the lifeline for other animals—we try to keep them alive and thriving, and also have to make heart wrenching end-of-life decisions with their best interests in mind and in heart—and this beautifully written and moving diary of Fincham-Gray's selfless work clearly shows how the life of every single individual matters and that science can take us only so far. Love and heart are necessary when we work with others who are totally dependent on us. I can only hope that the nonhumans with whom I share my life and I will receive the care and love she brought to each and every animal who came her way. My Patients and Other Animals should be required reading for all students and practitioners of veterinary medicine.”

Marc Bekoff, coauthor of The Animals' Agenda: Freedom, Compassion, and Coexistence In the Human Age and author of Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do

“This beautifully written book treads the narrow path between technical correctness and overly scientific terminology that endangers losing the reader. The passion that the author has for her patients and indeed for her vocation may be seen as a devotion bordering on an obsession. It is the story of a life of almost single minded love of the science of veterinary medicine and of care for the patients entrusted to her care. It should be read by all who care, whether for animals or humans, as it exemplifies how a life can be spent devoted to others, the pursuit of excellence, the moral and ethical dilemmas that scientific advances in treatments generate and above all the costs and benefits, mentally, physically and economically of the animal-human bond.” 

Peter Jinman, Emeritus President of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and    Emeritus President of the British Veterinary Association

“If only Suzy Fincham-Gray treated people, too. My Patients and Other Animals is a book of great heart and compassion that speaks for the ones we love who never get to speak—at least not in words.

Part history, part memoir, part journey into the complicated questions we all face about life

and death and who has the power to control both.”

—Tod Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author of Gangsterland

"A beautifully written collection of memories, capturing the relationship between disease, humans,

animals, and a veterinarian's love to heal all."

Dr. Justine Lee, author of It’s a Cat’s World…You Just Live in It and It’s a Dog’s Life…but It’s Your Carpet

"THE WILD INSIDE is an unusual love story and a creepy horror novel — think of the Brontë sisters and Stephen King."
John Irving, International and New York Times Bestselling author

THE WILD INSIDE by Jamey Bradbury
On Sale March 20, 2018

A promising talent makes her electrifying debut with an unforgettable novel, set in the Alaskan wilderness, that is a fusion of psychological thriller and coming-of-age tale!

EARLY PRAISE FOR THE WILD INSIDE

Bradbury has written a lovely and intense novel about the precarious balance of life and death, what it means to be human and fragile in a hostile environment, and, perhaps, what it means to be something other than entirely human.” – Library Journal, Starred Review

“Set in the dense Alaska wilderness, Bradbury’s quiet yet haunting debut novel is equal parts back-to-the-land adventure story and foreboding psychological thriller. …Bradbury builds suspense by keeping Tracy—and the reader—mostly in the dark about what’s actually going on until the gruesome reveal at the end. She also adds other elements to keep interests piqued: Tracy’s ability to sense her kills’ thoughts adds a mystical element to the narrative, and the detailed depiction of mushing is captivating. It’s a unique take on rural noir.”

Publishers Weekly

“Tracy’s unsettling compulsion for hunting takes a magic-realist turn early on…patient readers who like earthy, genre-blending, coming-of-age stories should be pleased.”Booklist

THE WILD INSIDE(William Morrow, On-sale: 03/20/18, 9780062741998, $25.99) follows natural born trapper and hunter Tracy Petrikoff as she spends her days tracking animals and running with her dogs in the remote Alaskan forests surrounding her family’s home. Tracy has been anticipating running the Iditarod her whole life, following in the footsteps of her father, a seasoned musher and race champion. She is on the cusp of her 18th birthday and finally eligible to compete, but her father has forbidden her to train for the race—he and her brother can’t cope with the recent, unexpected death of Tracy’s mother. So, in secret, she runs the dogs at night in the wilderness surrounding her family’s home, training for the ultimate challenge. And though she feels safe in this untamed land, Tracy still follows her late mother’s rules: Never Lose Sight of the House. Never Come Home with Dirty Hands. And, above all else—Never Make a Person Bleed.

While she is foraging in the woods, a stranger attacks Tracy and knocks her unconscious. But she can’t tell her father about the assault because she would risk having to tell him the truth about what she was really doing in the forest. Now, everything she thought about the tranquility and safety of her homestead is questioned.

The next day, she glimpses an eerily familiar man emerge from the tree line, gravely injured from a vicious knife wound—a wound from a hunting knife akin to the one she carries in her pocket. Was this the man who attacked her? Did she almost kill him? Did she break her mother’s most important rule? With her memories of the events jumbled after hitting her head, Tracy can’t be sure.

Then a mysterious wanderer appears, looking for a job. Tracy senses that Jesse Goodwin is hiding something, but she can’t warn her father without explaining about the attack—or why she’s kept it to herself. It soon becomes clear that something dangerous is going on. The way Jesse has wormed his way into the family, the threatening face of the stranger in a crowd, the boot-prints she finds at the forest’s edge. Tracy doesn’t know who she can trust, but the real danger is closer then she would have ever imagined.

Bradbury showcases her distinctive voice and true command of a language that rings with authenticity, not only of the remote Alaskan setting but of a girl on the edge of womanhood. THE WILD INSIDEis a masterful portrait of the world of dog-sled racing in the isolated wilderness. Exploring the difficulties of life as we are thrust into adulthood, Bradbury transports readers into Tracy’s world and as they become growingly engrossed in her choices, readers will be shocked at her last poignant decision.
