273


Los Angeles – Industry veteran, musician and producer, Jay King has always been controversial. Forever the maverick, King is credited, among many things, with creating a new chapter in music history by independently producing, pressing, marketing and promoting the biggest selling 12-inch single in history, “Rumors” by the Timex Social Club. He paved the path for independent record companies and was actually a forerunner to the current state of the music business, initially demonstrating the true power of the committed artist operating outside of the confines of the major label.

With his Blogtalk radio show “Jay King on BlogTalkRadio” at http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com/Jay-King, Jay King ventures off the music trail to get topical about subjects spanning the field of social issues covering topics such as child rearing to gang-banging to corny pick-up lines. Every Sunday, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST, he is joined by co-host/sidekick Robert Redwine in an interactive medium of lively discussion and debate.

Always introspective and highly entertaining, King is evolving into an insightful talk show host. With his latest interview topic “Pimps, Players & Hustlers… The Real Truth About the Game,” he interviews legendary pimps Gangsta Brown, Bishop “Magic” Don Juan and Ron Newt exploring his most controversial topic to date. Serving up a real dose of “player” game to his ever expanding listening audience, Part I of the dialogue can be heard archived at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/Jay-King and Part II will air live this Sunday, August 2 from 2:00 p.m. PST to 4:00 p.m. PST. Listeners can participate in the dialogue via live chat or call in at (347) 205-9366.

“The pimp lifestyle has always been a source of fascination for the Black community, hip hop music and culture and mainstream Hollywood even. But so much of it is folklore and myth. It’s often portrayed as glamourous and the reality is it is not! I thought what better way to honestly explore this topic than via my Blogtalk show where listeners have the opportunity to interact one on one with real life pimps from the life. We initially only had one show planned, but the first show proved so explosive, we had to bring the players back for part 2,” shares King.

Gangsta Brown, Bishop “Magic” Don Juan, and Ron Newt are indeed legendary pimps. Gangsta Brown became world renowned when his prostitute, Divine Brown was arrested after her liaison with actor Hugh Grant. Former pimp Magic Don Juan is now a hip hop personality of sorts these days. Often seen alongside rapper Snoop Dogg, he has authored books, appeared in music videos and even has his own ringtones. Ron Newt is an avowed pimp and the father of 90’s boy group sensation Newtrons on MCA Records. His memoir the self-published, “Bigger Than Big” sent waves throughout the entertainment industry as he documented his life in the music business with his sons, rubbing shoulders with the biggest celebrities in the business, including Michael Jackson.

In addition to his weekly radio show, King keeps busy touring with his group, Club Nouveau, promoting his new solo CD, “Open Book,” and interviewing music legends via his live webcast broadcast at http://www.KulaksWoodshed.com.

Club Nouveau’s Jay King Is Back On The Scene With Webisodes And New Solo CD

245

Los Angeles, CA – Industry veteran, musician and producer, Jay King has always been ahead of the curve. As the founder/creator of Club Nouveau, perhaps one of the most distinctive and original groups to grace the contemporary music scene, he has been influencing the musical landscape since first forming the group in 1986.

Club Nouveau sold over ten million records, toured worldwide, charted eleven Billboard hit singles and garnered numerous awards and prestigious nominations with hits that included “Jealousy,” “Situation #9, “Why You Treat Me So Bad,” and the remake of Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me.”

Forever the maverick, King is also credited with creating a new chapter in music history by independently producing, pressing, marketing and promoting the biggest selling 12-inch single in history, “Rumors” by the Timex Social Club. He paved the path for independent record companies and was actually a forerunner to the current state of the music business, initially demonstrating the true power of the committed artist operating outside of the confines of the major label.

Unlike many past musical wonders however, King is undaunted by the newest wave of changes on the music horizon and is once again forging new inroads. With his first solo CD “Open Book,” on KingJay Nouveau Music he proves himself still a true chameleon, remaining current and relevant to the times with an adult contemporary offering that is textured with the mature tonality of pure love.

A ten song adventure through adult contemporary, the musical escapade provides the textures of love, life and spirit. Working with musical powers such as Larry Dunn of Earth, Wind and Fire, guitar virtuoso Tony Dewayne, saxophone wizard Cal Bennett and veteran industry staple John Barnes, Jay has created a masterpiece in the realm of an audio experience that is a destined to become a standard for all time. Tracks like “I Would Die For You” and “I Have a Way with the Woman” ring like timeless classics.

In addition, King hosts his own Blogtalk radio show and has launched a new web series, “Up Close and Personal,” which broadcast live from the Kulak Woodshed in North Hollywood, CA. Revealing yet another dimension to his musical master mind, “Up Close and Personal” is an intimate peak into the lives and personalities of some of music’s most unheralded heroes. The two-hour webcast is a one-on-one conversation set in a music studio/coffee house atmosphere, where guests reveal untold anecdotes, behind-the-scenes revelations and inspiring tales about their musical paths.

On Thursday, July 2 from 8:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m. PST, the first family of jazz, the Laws Family will take the hot seat at the Kulak Woodshed with King for an unprecedented discussion about their rich history and contributions to the annuls of jazz. With over 30 years in the limelight, and over 50 albums between them, this will be a first for Ronnie, Eloise, Hubert and Debra Laws! The interview will broadcast live on the web at www.kulakswoodshed.com .

Then on Friday, July 10, at 8:00 p.m., Jay King returns to Kulak Woodshed for a live unplugged performace of material from his new CD “Open Book” That performance will also broadcast live on the web at www.kulakswoodshed.com . King is also slated to perform live at the Aqua Lounge in Beverly Hills, CA on July 14.

With his Blogtalk radio show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/Jay-King, King ventures off the music trail to get topical about subjects spanning the field of social issues covering topics such as child rearing to gang-banging to corny pick-up lines. Every Sunday, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST, he is joined by co-host/sidekick Robert Redwine in an interactive medium of lively discussion and debate.

“The music business will never be the same again,” cites King, “and neither will the world for that matter. So as veteran artists it’s vital that we keep reinventing ourselves. The World Wide Web is just that, its world wide. I’m now able to develop a new platform and reach an even more diverse and wider fan base via the social networking sites. I tell older artists all the time, don’t complain about the state of the industry, but jump in and get with it. I am having the time of my life.”
