Kimberly Haynes

'My songs are my prayers. It is truly a privilege to carry those prayers into the world. It is my hope that they will be a blessing to all who hear them."
Kimberly Haynes

Kindled by an awareness of divine guidance and conscious connection with spirit, singer/songwriter Kimberly Haynes' debut album "Awaken Me," brings forth an uplifting invitation to discover a sacred space deepwithin the heart. The spectrum of her eclectic and enlightening vocal performance evokes both the tenderness of a mother's touch and the ancient feminine power of a tribal priestess singing her truth. The essence of New Age is felt within the harmonious dance between worldmusic, folk, soft pop and Americana in this masterful production of 11 devotional songs cultivated by accomplished producer and multi-instrumentalist David Vito Gregoli.

While the style and feel of the songs reflect Kimberly's greatest musical influences such as Shawn Colvin, Joni Mitchell, Alison Krauss and Sarah McLachlan, her music harmoniously weaves inspirational heart-felt lyrics into a rich tapestry of world instruments to create poetic reflections born of a life of tremendous trials and blessed tribulations. "Having risen from my own ashes multiple times, it is my mission to carry music of the heart into the world. My life and my music are richer and deeper than they would have been without the challenges I have overcome, and my songs are a reflection of my journey to wholeness" she conveys.

Whether Kimberly is leading prayer services for her community, performing at one of many Southern California venues, or simply gathering her family and friends for a sacred meal, it's all done with a fierce passion and commitment to connecting with the heart. The highly anticipated release of her debut album, "Awaken Me" unifies brilliant performances played by some of the most well respected musicians in the industry such as Tina Malia, Christo Pellani, Peter Kater, Jesus Florido and Byron Metcalf.

"Kimberly paints musical portraits from a diverse palette of influences...Her expressive voice ranges from soft to soaring with thoughtful and inspiring lyrics that touch the heart and illuminate the spiritual quest. All in all, an uplifting listening experience."
- Michael Diamond - Music and Media Focus

Randall Davis,
Album Site: KevOz's Official Website:

Just who is KevOz, you might ask? First off - I'm a husband, a dad to a rescue dog, and a world traveler. Oh - and, I make music! I'm an independent artist who creates instrumental music ranging from softer, relaxing New Age (think: Vangelis, Yanni) to more upbeat Electronic (think, again: Tangerine Dream, Mannheim Steamroller). I like to call it innovative instrumental music that is beyond genres. I've always had a deep love of music in all forms, but got hooked on creating my own tunes with synthesizers due to the awesome variety of sounds that they allow one to create. I've been doing this for over 30 years now - but it wasn't until the turn of the millennium when I decided to get my music "out here" for all of you to hear.

What started out as a hobby in those early years has become a passion. And nowadays, my music has been purchased, downloaded, and/or streamed from all corners of the globe. It still never ceases to inspire me when someone new downloads just one of my songs. I'm thankful for it every day.

Apparently, there are others who have taken notice, too. During my musical journey, I've somehow managed to be profiled in Keyboard Magazine as their "Unsigned Artist of the Month". iTunes actually placed me in their "iTunes Essentials: Yoga" compilation. And, most recently, Tokyo Disneyland has been featuring my Christmas music over the past several holiday seasons in Tomorrowland - and in a nighttime laser light show beamed onto Space Mountain. Pretty cool, huh? I think so. :)

I reside just outside of Chicago...enjoying life, love, and music. I just released album #14 - "Relaxation and Action". And I plan to "keep on keeping on" with this as long as I am able. I'm happy you're here for the ride.


"Breezy tunes with infectious beats and lots of "sunny day" attitude. The man can definitely compose a wickedly catchy hook!" - Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter

"The music is consistently upbeat and overflowing with the joy of discovery. Many of the pieces have the high energy of Mannheim Steamroller and the whimsical humor of Ray Lynch." - Kathy Parsons,

"The best "Hearts of Space" program you"ve never heard. I would love for this to be part of a spa or yoga studio's play cycle." - Fan Reviews

"We here at 'Wings' with Angel and Brian are totally enamored with KevOz's music. The best relaxation music we have had in a long dry spell!" - "Wings" with Angel and Brian, WFCF 88.5 FM

Michele McLaughlin
Musical Storytelling to Inspire and Excite the Imagination...

Michele McLaughlin is a Contemporary Solo Pianist & Composer. She has released fifteen albums, many of which have received multiple nominations and awards, including "Album of the Year", "Song of the Year" and "Top Picks". Her newest album, Undercurrent, debuted at #5 on the New Age Billboard Charts. Her original solo piano compositions are often described as "musical storytelling" and are haunting and contagious, relaxing and beautiful, peaceful and touching, energetic and inspiring. Her music is a regular favorite on Pandora Radio and is a bestseller on iTunes and Amazon, often landing her in the Top Ten New Age Charts. You can listen to Michele online via Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, Pandora Radio, iTunes Radio, Spotify, XM/Sirius and Music Choice Soundscapes. Michele performs and tours regularly and runs her own in-home concert series in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"McLaughlin is what I refer to as a "heart on her sleeve" composer, i.e. there is no subterfuge, no subtlety at work in her music - she presents her emotional intent of a song forthwith and front and center. It's a testament to her considerable talent that this baring of her soul always works so well, because in the hands of a lesser talent, the music would be melodramatic, overly self-conscious, and would grow tiresome. However, it's not just her technique and artistry, which is impossible to ignore, but also her artist's soul, which seems woven into every piece of music she writes. No matter how pyrotechnic she can be (and this woman can really play piano with the best of 'em), there is always the presence of heart, sometimes "in your face" and sometimes between the lines, but never hidden behind artifice."
- Bill Binkelman - Wind & Wire and Zone Music Reporter

Record Labels
Blue Coast Records
Blue Coast Records, (Audiophile label) enjoys an alliance with Little Hartley Music who has a collection of content partners and associations with Australian and Asian companies and are now extending opportunities to ambient musicians from around the world. We represent New Age, Neo Classical, Smooth Jazz, World Music, and Easy Listening musicians by sending their music to companies who play, programme, licence, distribute and even purchase ambient genre music.

Our reach is unique not only by its isolation, but also, Australia's major trading partner is Asia. Servicing this market works well because of the clear connection in trade and business agreements between the two regions.

There are over 1,200 cafes, restaurants, shopping centres and retail outlets that rely on us for material to programme as well as 14 airlines, one TV station and over 100 radio stations (both commercial and community).

We have contacts with reviewers, magazines and newspapers and we even register your title on almost every retail computer in Australia as back-up if your regular distribution channels are not working in this territory.

Examples of recent success: Features on multiple airlines, playlist inclusions at Sydney Opera House, shopping centres & cafes, Digital licences in Korea, Album licences to manufacture in Taiwan, a recent shipment of Cds to China, airplay on Aussie radio....etc.

Australia alone is not a massive market by comparison to the USA, but it is the launching pad to China and Asia and that is the biggest future market and the most lucrative for performing artists.

Australia is also unique because we have regional ABC stations paying closer to commercial rates for airplay. Our radio campaigns have a good main stream reach (and pay).

Little Hartley Music is happy to facilitate these opportunities for you, please contact Annette (Dunnie) Crossley or Fiona Joy via our website or email for a copy of the promotional options.
