Dear Readers,

Welcome to the March 2017 issue of Shine on Hollywood Magazine! As we say goodbye to the frosty winter season and welcome the boundless beauty of spring, we bring to you with great satisfaction our special edition of Top Asian Industry Professionals issue! There’s never shortage of talent in this town as we immerse you in the world of celebrity fashion design, and bring you up close to some of the hardest working designers in the industry, whose allure go beyond the camera flashes.

This issue we feature top fashion designer André Soriano. During his teens, André left the political upheaval in his native Philippines and immigrated to the US with his mother and siblings. Grasping the boundless opportunities that his new adoptive home offered, André used the resources at his disposal to achieve his dream of becoming a professional designer. His hard work paid off when he was invited to participate in a reality television show called Styled to Rock. Now working alongside the top talent in Hollywood, André is able to enjoy the fruits of his labor, while still giving back to the San Diego community, never forgetting the turn of fortune provided by the opportunities in America.

We’re also going to introduce you to contemporary still life and landscape artist, Charisse Abellana. Another artist hailing from the Philippines, Charisse’s roots taught her the closeness and value of family and extended families, while her life in America taught her the strength of the individual, and the prospect that comes with freedom of expression as an artist. Using oils, watercolor, charcoal, ink on paper and mixed media in work, she uses the thick, bold strokes a palette knife provides to convey her emotions in the compositions unique to her work. Charisse’s paintings have been auctioned, using the profits to help the underprivileged.

At the age of six, Kiki Wang took the first steps in her career as a fashion designer by sewing together outfits for her baby dolls. Even at that fledgling age, her illustrations were also admired and collected by her young peers, and the impression awoke a passion for design in the young girl. Kiki immersed herself in school and strove in her studies. But she never lost sight of her dream, and after finishing her formal education in finance, she continued to pursue a career in fashion design by taking more classes at a local school. After finding success as an entrepreneur, she took the next bold step and moved to the US to continue her studies in design. She went on to found the fashion label CSP. Since then, her designs have gleamed through red carpets here and abroad.

As we say goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall, we boldly move forward and bring to you with anticipation, our first ever issue featuring Top Chef/Culinary Industry Professionals. There’s never shortage of talent in this town, as we present you with delicious inspiring stories from the gourmet kitchens of Hollywood and beyond. This month’s cover story features celebrity Gourmet Raw Vegan Chef, Be*Live. Brian James Lucas was born with dental and gastrointestinal disorders that threatened his life during childhood. Later as an adult facing legal troubles, and without formal culinary education, his initial investment in a raw vegan restaurant gave him the opportunity to develop his innate skills, and eventually Lucas reinvented himself using the new social media technologies, building a following as a celebrity chef and a pioneer of the gourmet raw vegan movement. If you’re curious about Raw Cuisine you won’t want to miss this article! Next up is Nomi Shannon, a living pioneer of the modern Gourmet Raw Food movement. After a series of health complications, Nomi gradually became a full Raw Vegan. After graduating from college at the age of 40, she became an educator in body cleansing using the raw lifestyle and recipes. Now at age 73, she’s in the best shape of her life running her own successful online business and has earned awards and accolades from the Raw Vegan community for her work and groundbreaking cook books. For those health-conscious readers interested in switching to “Raw,” look for tips on how to best make this salubrious decision. This month we are also featuring Chef Sean McDuff, who dropped out of school at the age of 17, and quickly realized the value of education. He went on to complete his GED. Sean found an interest in cooking and continued his journey by enrolling in the Art Institute of Atlanta, where he would go on to study the culinary arts. By the age of 20, Sean was winning awards and working in some of the hottest kitchens in the Atlanta area. He then went on to found Live2EatWell, a meal delivery service that offers an opportunity for families to eat healthy, locally-sourced, prepared meals in an effort to improve their well-being.

His new work, “Peace” with a world-wide premier in China next month, embodies Cao’s desire to shine a light on the damage we are doing to our world and what we need to do to correct it.

Jason Link – Aaron Hendra Project – Chicago Blues All-Stars – Ozzmak News

Jason Link

Genres: Country
Management: Billy Holland / Erik Baker

Country music may be
running through Jason Link’s veins, but when you first meet this modern-edged performer
down on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee, it’s hard to tell he was raised on a
900-acre tobacco farm that goes back four generations. In fact, you may think
he was more of a new generation country-rocker with hair falling conspicuously
into a spiky form of bedhead sexiness and a lean physique sporting an array of
rumpled designer duds, including a cowboy hat that he modified himself by spray
painting and scuffing up into its own innovative texture.

But
regardless of his urban-esque appeal, this real world ‘country boy’ from Freeman,
Virginia, can belt out a tune with just enough twang that would be best described
as George Strait meets Hank Williams, Jr. with a serving of Kenny Chesney on the
side. And that doesn’t even cover the fact that he’s an extraordinary guitar player.
He is among the few that play lead guitar currently driving the country music scene.
Only two other players come to mind when thinking of Jason and that’s Brad
Paisley and Keith Urban.

However, Link is well aware that
possessing the talent to have mastered the guitar and banjo is not all it takes
for him to make his dreams a reality…it’s about having great songs. No problem
there. Jason also happens to be a seasoned songwriter, with the ability to construct
memorable melodies paired with story-driven lyrics and just the right amount of
modern flare to appeal to a country radio audience. And if that’s not enough to
convince every country music listener to jump on the “Link” train,
his ability to perform live is without question, the best. With the stamina of
Bruce Springsteen and an enduring passion to always be on stage singing, he is
what one would call a true entertainer.

But none of this
should be a surprise once you learn how long Jason Link has been doing this thing
he calls “his life”. It all started at the age of five…playing the drums at
his grandfather’s dance hall, Club 301, while also appearing on his grandfather’s
radio station, 580 AM WLES, in Lawrenceville, Virginia, under the nickname “Scoot
Scoot”. At age 16, he began to play guitar and write his own songs which led
to countless shows at local bars and other venues with his uncle Marty, who was
influential in teaching Jason his unique style of hybrid country lead guitar.
Eager to explore music from all genres, Jason was influenced, both vocally and
in his guitar playing, by artists ranging from Hank Williams, Sr. to Jimi Hendrix
to the Beatles. There was no stopping him.

When Jason was nineteen,
he landed a gig as the lead singer in a house band he formed with his uncle. His
great dedication to music was truly apparent during this time, as he drove one
hundred miles each way, playing over 270 shows a year for five years. It was during
this period of his life that Jason began to develop his unique musical style with
the help of vocal coach Janet Kenyon, who has worked with artists such as Taylor
Swift and Josh Turner.

Today, Jason resides in Nashville, Tennessee,
tours the country, and continues to capture new fans with his energetic and aggressive
live performances. With a country music style all his own mixed with a good dose
of rugged sex appeal, Jason never fails to leave an audience wanting more.

Jason Link’s life has been and always will be his music…as a
third generation musician, he carries with him his family’s musical lineage and
it is no secret that he is well on his way to becoming a country music superstar.
As his grandfather once told him, “He is and will be “something special”.

Artist Bio

A truly gifted songwriter,
performer and recording artist, Aaron Hendra is also an owner of LA based indie
Give Records. He met entrepreneur Rick St George in 2008 and created Give. In an
era where major label development is almost nonexistent, Give provides opportunities
and time for an artist to find their musical identity.

OCTOBERSONG
is the debut release for both Aaron and Give and was sculpted over a 3 year period
at Give Studios in LA. An opportunity like this is a dream come true for any artist
but did not come easily for Aaron. Rather it is a result of over a decade of persistence
through ups, downs and near misses that would cause most aspiring musicians to
pack up and head home.
Early success for the Aussie born songwriter came when
he hand delivered a simple piano/vocal demo to the record company office of Aussie
recording superstar John Farnham. Several weeks later Aaron received a personal
phone call from Farnham, stating that he loved the song and wanted to record it.
“Don’t Let It End” became a single on Farnham’s multi-platinum
CD “Romeo’s Heart”. Sheryl Crow and Dianne Warren also pitched
songs for this album.

In 2001, a recording contract with Hollywood
records helped Aaron and his band gain access to the United States and opportunities
to live abroad and grow as a songwriter. Producer problems left the group unable
to deliver a cohesive record however and a year after signing the deal, the label
dropped the young band from its roster. A period of seven years passed where Aaron
continued to pay dues. This included two further letdowns, a development deal with
Warner Bros that ended when the supporting A & R person lost their job, and
then, making it all the way through auditions to the top 50 finalists for the 1st
season of Rockstar with INXS only to miss final selection for the show. Major
label deals and Reality TV at that point were not the destined paths. 2005 thru
2008 consisted of days on the construction site and nights playing small acoustic
shows and writing songs. This only served to fuel the flame.

Near
the end of 2008 the gift of a second chance at a recording career arrived. Aaron
met Rick St George, a finance guy who saw the untapped talent and believed in his
music immediately. The entrepreneur struck a deal with the songwriter and Give
Records was born. Once again able to focus fully on writing and recording, Aaron
began to assemble a team. Long time friend and session drummer Greg ‘Gigi’ Gonaway
joined forces with Aaron and moved to LA in 2009 to begin pre-production. St George,
thinking this was more than a solo artist but not quite a band, dubbed it the ‘Aaron
Hendra Project’. Work began under the AHP moniker. Not wanting the pressure of
the usual ticking clock of commercial studios, St George decided to search for
a unique space as a new home for Give family. He soon found a secluded compound
only a block from the famous Sunset Strip in Beverly Hills. Not only was the space
perfect for album, it also had a rich musical heritage.

Built
in the 70’s by the late Richard Colburn (Founder of the Colburn School of Music
in LA) to entertain LA socialites, the house featured a ballroom designed for chamber
orchestras. Classical violinists such as Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo Mar and Isaac Stern
we’re regular guests back in the day. St George, Aaron, Gigi and sound engineer
Dave Ahlert went to work turning the library into a control room and the production
began. Producer Rob Hill the team in 2010 and once tracking was complete the team
took the songs to South Beach Studios in Miami Beach, Florida where renowned mix
engineer Tom Lord-Alge added his magic and finessed them to completion.
During
recording, Sam Childers AKA the “Machine Gun Preacher” visited Give
Studios and asked Aaron to write a song about his mission to save the children
of Sudan. The result was “One Man’s War”. AHP then traveled to
Sudan to record the 300 children now living at the orphanage sing the end choruses
of the song. Touching and inspiring listeners all over the globe, it has become
the official spiritual anthem of the Machine Gun Preacher.

The
yet to be released new album from AHP, called OCTOBERSONG, features 11 tracks from
the artist. With definite mainstream appeal, the music and songs of Aaron Hendra
are poised to make an impact on a broad audience ranging from high school aged
youngsters to mature adults. With a message, voice and sound that is fresh yet
authentic and heartfelt, this adult contemporary artist is destined for the world
stage.

More About Aaron Hendra Project

 ‘OCTOBERSONG‘ is the (yet to be released)
debut release by Australian born recording artist Aaron Hendra. It is the culmination of 10 years of
writing while living and honing his craft in the unforgiving musical landscape
of Los Angeles. Not only are all songs featured on the album 100% written by Aaron,
he also produced them with Rob Hill.
Recording took place over 2 years at a private mansion only a block from Sunset
and Doheny in Beverly Hills. Vintage Neve and API consoles we’re installed in the
control room specifically for the record. All songs were engineering by Dave Ahlert. After tracking and overdubs
Aaron took the songs to South Beach
studios
in Miami to be mixed by world renowned mixing engineer Tom Lord-Alge. The recordings also
feature the drumming talents of Greg
‘Gigi’ Gonaway
(ex Mariah Carey) who is a key member of the Aaron Hendra Project. Bass players
on the record included Paul Bushnell

(Faith Hill, Daughtry, Shakira), Marcus
Brown
(Madonna, Seal) and Dorian Heartsong. Piano and keyboard players included Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, Wallflowers),
Jamie Mahoberac (Goo
Goo Dolls, Chris Cornell, All American Rejects) and again Marcus Brown. Live strings performed by (24 piece
orchestra) members LA Philharmonic,
arranged and conducted by David Campbell.
Percussion on ‘One Mans War’
