Spiraling Music Company
Spiraling Music has been publishing the music and collaborative works of Merrill Collins since 1983. We work with the highest caliber artists on projects that respond to humanity creating intentional harmonies of peace.

The artist created Spiraling Music in order to produce and promote her unique and personal music, which features a catalog filled with various instrumental albums influenced by the work of artists such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Oliver Messiaen, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Herbie Hancock and many others. Many of her projects involve vocal tracks as well as instrumental ones.

Collins' music combines her classical music training with contemporary improvisation, collaborating with other top-tier musicians. "My players often interact with each other like a musical conversation, where each person's intuition guides their commentaries and input," she explains. "We all work off the same basic chart, chords, melodies, and phrases which I compose, adding our various individual instruments to the collective sound." Every album is unique.

Her impressive resume extends to other areas as well. She's performed and composed music for the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, UNCHR Human Rights Day, Amnesty International, United Way, Pathways to Peace, UN World Habitat Day, Earth Day. At the Council for the Parliament of the World's Religions in Capetown South Africa 1999, her works were cited as "Gifts of Service to the World." Her production of Minute of Silence was featured in three languages in a global broadcast for the International Day of Peace. Merrill received a Global Peace Song Award 2016 for her composition "Every Man, Woman, and Child" which was included on the 2017 Project Peace on Earth compilation. She is a voting member of the Grammy Foundation (NARAS).

Merrill's video collaborations with her husband, photographer Yvon Chausseblanche, can be seen on YouTube. Merrill is available for live presentations and performances at conferences and events in the Los Angeles area. Contact Merrill as the publisher of all Spiraling Music titles to negotiate synchronization licenses.

KevOz
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.

Reviews:

"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, MainlyPiano.com

"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." - Amazon.com 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 littlehartleymusic@gmail.com for a copy of the promotional options.
