Amilia K Spicer to Release New Album Wow and Flutter April 28, 2017

Americana songstress Amilia K Spicer will release her third album, Wow and Flutter on April 28, 2017.

Los Angeles, CA, February 22, 2017 - Americana songstress Amilia K Spicer will release her third album, Wow and Flutter on April 28, 2017. Spicer also exclusively premiered the music video for “Fill Me Up” from Wow and Flutter on February 14 via TheBluegrassSituation.com, in advance of the Folk Alliance festival. The video was filmed in the very woods she explored as a child in rural Pennsylvania and features scenes of Spicer re-discovering those woods while playing the song. The video is now available via Spicer’s YouTube channel. Spicer performed songs from the new release during her Official Showcase at the prestigious Folk Alliance festival, which takes place in Kansas City, MO on February 15 -18, 2017.


Wow and Flutter is Spicer’s most compelling work to date. The songs map her musical DNA in landscapes of languid farmlands, gritty alleys and red dirt noir. Her lyrics reflect the various places she calls home; Pennsylvania where she was raised, and Los Angeles and Austin where she currently splits her time. She visits her father’s hometown of Harlan Kentucky on the track “Harlan” as well.

The album kicks off with the twang and yearning of the first track “Fill Me Up,” a plea to the universe to fulfill her broken soul. The album’s journey continues with sensual and heartfelt songs like “Harlan,” and “This Town,” which recounts a scene known to many, when one finally realizes that no matter how far you travel, you never truly leave your hometown. Spicer confesses, “I know my home is in this town, like I know just how to breathe.”

Spicer has recruited an all-star line-up for Wow and Flutter. Keyboardists Rami Jaffee (Wallflowers, Foo Fighters) and Mike Finnegan (Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal) contribute, as does Woody Guthrie disciple and singer-songwriter Jimmy LaFave, alongside bassist Daryl Johnson (Stones/Dylan). Guitarists Tony Gilkyson (X, Lone Justice) and Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams) appear as special guests. Spicer, previously known for her piano work, picks up a multitude of instruments on Wow and Flutter, from guitar to banjo to lap steel. She also produced the record, alongside multi-instrumentalist Steve McCormick. Malcolm Burn, whom Spicer contacted because of his work with Daniel Lanois, handled mixing.

About Amilia K Spicer:
When Spicer answered music’s call, she was first discovered at a Los Angeles club. That led to a rare main stage Kerrville Folk Festival debut, three Kennedy Center performances, song placements in several high-profile TV productions (Party of Five, Dawson’s Creek), and more. Spicer’s first two releases, Like an Engine and Seamless were released to critical acclaim, with New Texas Magazine calling Spicer “A formidable talent.” Spicer’s music has also earned comparisons to that of Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, and Lanois. During the writing process for Wow and Flutter, Spicer took time to work on several other projects. Among these, she has been lauded for her contributions to Cinnamon Girl: Women Artists Cover Neil Young and A Case for Case: A Peter Case Tribute with John Prine. She also appeared on the 2009 Safety Harbor Kids Holiday Collection, alongside Jackson Browne, Sheila E, and Paul Barrere. Spicer has enjoyed other collaborations as well, most notably appearing on albums by John Gorka and the final Rounder release from the late Bill Morrissey.

Self Defense Instructor Certification Course

SAFE International™ Self Defense

Toronto, ON, Canada, February 22, 2017 - SAFE International™ proudly offers a self-defense certification course for those interested in serving their community or workplace as a self-defense instructor.

Led by CEO and founder Christopher Roberts and Founder of Senshido International Richard Dimitri, this mobile self-defense instruction company has more than 25 years of self-protection coaching and training for ages 12 to 82. They have established SAFE International™ as Canada’s leader in the self-defense industry and are expanding their reputation across the border to the United States, Australia and Finland.


Since 1994, SAFE International™ has taught more than a quarter million people, reaching more students at schools, business associates and corporations every year. With a message that can save lives, SAFE International™ wants to spread these valuable lessons by certifying future instructors to join the cause. In a matter of five hours, instructors can equip a group of individuals in the fundamentals of self-defense, protecting themselves and those around them.

As an instructor, physical combative skills are taught that are based on human physiology and anatomy, not martial arts. Our teaching model is founded on the premise that when facing a real-life threat, one must act spontaneously. Instructors also teach their trainees the necessity of remaining mentally alert and exhibit situational awareness, no matter the setting. To ensure this, our training involves simulations of potential real-life scenarios to embed and establish the right attitude of response as second nature in our clients. Our SAFE International™ clients leave with a well-rounded education, possessing both the needed theoretical and the hands-on understanding, thanks to our knowledgeable trainers.

The SAFE International™ certification course is holistic and comprehensive, covering the basics of personal protection, as well as taking into consideration the legal, ethical, moral and psychological applications. This self-defense certification is applicable to all demographics, encompassing law enforcement personnel to middle school students to corporate businesspersons. Training modules cover actual real-life experiences, not only making the training applicable, but also memorable.

At SAFE International™, our curriculum is based on thousands of hours of experience, training and decades of research into criminology, behavioral psychology and violence and confrontation physiology. Those who were once deemed as vulnerable and weak are now equipped with the knowledge to deescalate scenarios and react to confrontation. Our trainers must have the leadership skill set to provide diverse and customized training courses to effectively reach each group of trainees.

SAFE International™ has put together several teaching modules, varying in levels of specific certification in order to give our instructors options and maintain affordability. Whether one is a novice or are experienced, the first module, SAFE International’s Core Curriculum, extensively covers the core fundamentals of the SAFE International™ self defense program, building a foundation for future certifications. In fact, the SAFE Core curriculum certification material is revised and updated every year – a consistent practice for the past 23 years – in an effort to maintain up-to-date information so as to corroborate with current reports of civilian violence.
Upon graduation, instructors will receive their official SAFE International™ certification, as well as marketing tools such as official SAFE International™ badges and banners. Our goal is to prepare our instructors scattered abroad so they have all the tools necessary to teach clients effectively.

SAFE International™ believes that self-defense is not a luxury – it should be ready information that anyone can acquire. In a world that has potential danger lurking around every corner, SAFE International™ is committed to training mothers, fathers, sisters, siblings and children, so they can all return safely home at the end of the day. At SAFE International™ our loyalty is first and foremost to our clients as they further impact their students, friends, families and communities. If this message resonates with you, come join our self-defense instructor course today to see firsthand the impact you can have on your community. www.safeinternational.biz

Pop-Soul Singer/Songwriter James Patrick Morgan to Release ‘Art+Work=Love’ EP on February 17

First single “Expected” released to critical acclaim in December 2016

Los Angeles, CA, February 7, 2017 – James Patrick Morgan, the Atlanta-based pop-rock and soul singer/songwriter, is set to release his brand new EP ‘Art + Work = Love’ via Cloverland Entertainment/InGrooves. ‘Art + Work = Love’ will be available on iTunes and all major digital outlets on February 17. Morgan describes this five-song collection as one which “represents [him] better than most past recordings…” As an artist who plays up to 10 shows each week, he recognizes the importance that ‘Art + Work = Love’ captures much more of “what [he does] in a live setting,” than previous releases. The EP was recorded in several legendary studios across the United States such as Los Angeles’ East West Studios, where the Beach Boys recorded many of their hits, and the storied Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN. Morgan says the goal of the EP, and of his artistry, is to “show people that it’s okay to be present and feel.” This is something he does with remarkable success on ‘Art + Work = Love,’ recalling classic artists such as Sam Cooke and Dave Matthews, but doing so in a fresh and exciting way.


There’s superb production here married with an intelligent approach that keeps the track lively from the first second to last. – Skope Magazine, on “Expected”

The first single from ‘Art + Work = Love’ – titled “Expected” – is also the first song on the EP. “Expected” is currently available to stream via SoundCloud. Morgan says that “songwriting comes easily” to him, and it’s evident that is true from the opening notes of “Expected.” The Sony Southern Talent Expo winner’s wide ranging influences from blues to soul to pop and soft rock are all given time on the track – from the acoustic verses to the catchy horn lines and soulful vocal harmonies on the chorus. The song features an infectious, danceable groove that carries the listener through the story of two people sharing “one night, two nights, three nights” and eventually falling in love.

About James Patrick Morgan:
Already a favorite in the Atlanta music scene, Pop-Soul singer songwriter James Patrick Morgan has spent years honing his sound while playing 300-plus shows a year, performing covers and originals as well. The Athens, GA native has just completed a collection of new music entitled: ‘Art + Work = Love.’ The EP illustrates his myriad of musical influences, and crackles with the energy he brings to his live shows. The new EP will give the rest of the world a chance to experience the soulful grooves and upbeat energy that are Morgan’s musical hallmark. Produced by studio ace David Huff, the EP is full of infectious grooves and pure soul, highlighting James’ love of R&B and funk.

With years of performing under his belt James has 1500 covers in his repertoire, and he includes an impressive take on Steve Miller’s “Fly Like An Eagle” on the new EP as well. He’s eager and ready to begin taking these songs to much bigger stages, and is thrilled at the chance to not only perform for bigger crowds, but also to make a positive impact on people with his music in the process.

Protecting Patients and Preventing Drug Diversion: Senator Alloway, Representative Nesbit Introduce Pennsylvania Orthopaedic Society's E-prescribing Legislation

Today, State Senator Richard Alloway and State Representative Tedd Nesbit announced the introduction of legislation to mandate the electronic prescribing of opioid medications.

Harrisburg, PA, February 06, 2017 – Today, State Senator Richard Alloway and State Representative Tedd Nesbit announced the introduction of legislation to mandate the electronic prescribing of opioid medications. The bill is an initiative of the Pennsylvania Orthopaedic Society (POS). Society President Patrick Smith, MD, as well as POS board members, joined legislators in the Main Capitol Rotunda to announce the legislation.

“We stand with Senator Alloway and Representative Nesbit to advance a solution that works in the fight against opioid addiction,” Smith said. “Opioid e-prescribing will absolutely reduce drug diversion due to written prescriptions being lost, stolen or sold. It just plain makes sense in 2017. We thank Senator Alloway, Representative Nesbit and all the other legislators who have joined us today to gain this vital patient protection measure.”

Currently, Pennsylvania law requires opioid prescriptions to be handwritten. A vestige of the pre-internet era, this statute has not been updated since the 1990s. Although physicians may prescribe all other medicine by electronic means, opioids must still be prescribed by handwritten prescriptions. The Alloway and Nesbit bills (SB 299 and HB 353) ?will bring opioid prescribing into the 21st Century.

“Patients and physicians throughout the Commonwealth can feel more secure now that legislative action is pending on opioid e-prescribing,” Smith said. “Paper scripts will no longer put our communities at risk of drug diversion and hamper patient care. We respectfully request the General Assembly to quickly move this solution that works.”

In addition to reducing drug diversion, opioid e-prescribing will add to patient convenience. Like with other medications, opioid e-prescribing will reduce patient wait times in pharmacies. It will also increase patient security by eliminating the risk of opioid prescriptions being stolen.

“There are a multitude of reasons for the current opioid addiction crisis and the General Assembly took important steps last session to turn the tide against it. Opioid e-prescribing is a simple and effective solution and should be added to the arsenal of weapons available to physicians to combat the crisis,” Smith concluded.

Advocating for excellence in the practice of orthopaedic medicine, POS is a professional medical specialty organization representing more than 1000 orthopaedic surgeons across Pennsylvania.
