EcoClean Celebrates One Year Anniversary of PROPS Community Giving Program and Selects HealthStart as their September Partner

Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 01, 2012

Today marks the one year anniversary of EcoCleans community giving program, PROPS. Over the last year they have raised $ 4700 for the following organizations: Hill Country Conservancy, SafePlace, Austin Lyric Opera, Austin Pets Alive, SOS, Project Transitions, Keep Austin Beautiful, Theater Action Project, Sustainable Food Center, Colorado River foundation, KOOP Radio, and Austin Film Society. Its our way of saying thank you, of showing proper respect we like to say, to the organizations fighting the good fight here in Austin. This town is just full of unsung heroes busy creating positive change. From water quality to fair access to the arts, the work our partners do is a critical in making Austin the great city it is, says Kerstin Shoberg, EcoClean Manager.

Through the PROPS program, EcoClean donates 5% of their sales every Wednesday to their partner of the month. Our customers make progressive choices for their health and the environment. The PROPS program is an extension of that pro-active spirit. We commit to giving the 5%, but its up to the broader community to come in with their cleaning and increase the donation, says Shoberg.

Starting this Wednesday, the September 5% will be donated to The HealthStart Foundation, a local organization dedicated to a healthier future through early childhood health and wellness curriculum. “HealthStart is working to create healthy communities through early health education by teaching pre-K kids the ABC’s of nutrition, exercise, wellness and body awareness. What children learn at an early age can positively influence choices they will make for the rest of their lives, which we hope will lead to healthier children, families and communities, says HealthStart executive director Robin Herskowitz. Individuals can contribute to the HealthStart vision by patronizing EcoClean any Wednesday this month.

“I’ve been going to EcoClean for years now, and just joined up with HealthStart a few months ago. It’s great to see my interests and values coming together in the community like this.”

John Hiatt to Release New Album Mystic Pinball on September 25!


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) August 21, 2012

Acclaimed musician and songwriter John Hiatt will release Mystic Pinball on September 25th via New West Records. Called one of rocks most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years by the Los Angeles Times, Hiatt continues to write brilliant character studies, twisting entertaining storylines with cunning lyrics and wry humor including Were Alright Now, the first single from Mystic Pinball. Were Alright Now is a blues driven, gospel song available to hear today at http://www.americansongwriter.com. Mystic Pinball will be available as both a CD and on limited edition 180-gram vinyl.

Hiatt and his band, The Combo, have gained a reputation for captivating crowds at their live shows as The Tennessean depicts: He prowls the stage, delivering the bluesy stuff in a whiskey-burn howl, shouting the rock stuff and fronting a formidable band that can turn on a dime, from ballads to bombast. Hiatt & The Combo begin a US run mid-August that includes dates with Steve Earle, a special appearance at the Americana Festival in Nashville and two shows at City Winery in NYC (full list of dates below.)

For Mystic Pinball, Hiatts 21st studio album, Hiatt turned to producer Kevin Caveman Shirley (Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa.) Shirley also produced Hiatts highly praised Dirty Jeans And Mudslide Hymns, which the New York Times declared was his best since 1995. Hiatt relies on the exceptional musical skills of Doug Lancio (electric guitar, mandolin, Dobro), Kenneth Blevins (drums and percussion) and Patrick OHearn (bass) to play with him on the record.

John Hiatts career as a performer and songwriter has spanned more than 30 years and everyone from Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bonnie Raitt and Iggy Pop has covered his work. Hiatt began his solo career with the 1974 album Hangin Around the Observatory. His landmark 1987 release Bring The Family, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, was his first album to chart in the U.S. 2000s Crossing Muddy Waters was called The most natural and relaxed John Hiatt album in years by All Music Guide. In 2008, Hiatt released Same Old Man, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was honored by the Americana Music Association with their prestigious Lifetime Achievement in Songwriting Award. Critical acclaim continued for The Open Road (2010) with The Boston Herald praising Hiatt knocks together a rocking, full-throttle road record that in its tone, toughness and mix of blues, r & b and country harkens back to his landmark Bring the Family while the Associated Press proclaimed Hiatt remains at the top of his game in reference to Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns.

WAZ Independently Releases New Full-Length Album “These Bright Lights” Exclusively on iTunes on September 21, 2009


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2009

“These Bright Lights” is WAZ’s coming of age album. This confessional 11 song record tells WAZ’s story of falling in love and wedding his southern belle who graces the album with her angelic vocals and piano playing.

“These Bright Lights” was produced by Will Golden & WAZ, mixed and mastered by Tom Rogers (Magnetic Fields) with Special Guest Appearances by Pete Yorn & David Immergluck (Counting Crows).

Currently, WAZ is scoring Bill Lawrence & Courteney Cox’s ABC Comedy “Cougar Town”. “Cougar Town” premieres this Wednesday, September 23rd.

“As a show composer WAZ brings something incredibly special. He has the ability to make score music sound current, like it was just lifted off the radio, and yet, it still services the show perfectly. On SCRUBS we feel like we made some discoveries (Josh Radin) and some rediscoveries (Colin Hay). We’re all music nerds here. As a group we’re confident that WAZ will be the next singer/songwriter that we try to claim credit for. He’s that good.”


Bill Lawrence

Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, WAZ was heavily influenced by his parent’s record collection which included artists such as The Pretenders, ELO, & Neil Young. At the early age of 8, 10cc’s song, “The Things We Do For Love” inspired WAZ to pick up his first guitar. After graduating college, WAZ packed up his car and drove west having no idea what the future held. Within a day of arriving in California, he got a call from his college buddy Pete Yorn, to start a band.

Playing shows night after night WAZ was moved by the raw and emotional connection people have with heartfelt music & lyrics… It was this connection that inspired him to start writing his own songs and pursue his solo career.

In 2008, WAZ independently released both his debut album ‘The Sweet Bye and Bye’ and ‘The Secret’ EP produced by Will Golden & mixed by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, REM). “The Secret” debuted at #13 and the lead-off single “Ordinary Girl” climbed to #3 on iTunes Singer-Songwriter Chart. WAZ has been featured on Scrubs, Grey’s Anatomy, The Hills, Men in Trees, and in Rolling Stone and Paste Magazine.
