Los Angeles, CA, November 01, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Mona Loring, president of MLC PR, officially announced today that award-winning singer/songwriter, Colin Armstrong, signed on for her firm’s PR services. Subsequent to passing up a developmental deal with Hollywood Records, award-winning singer/songwriter Colin Armstrong has completed his debut full-length album “Lost and Anonymous,” officially slated for release on January 13, 2009. Produced and mixed by Mikal Reid (Mick Jagger, Ben Harper, Aerosmith, Wang Chung), the album will be distributed online via iTunes, and available for purchase through his label’s website Rithmetic Records.
“I really feel as if Colin is the artist the music scene has been aching for,” says Loring of Armstrong. “With songs like ‘Hey Yoko’ and ‘Miss Sympathy,’ he is showcasing that he is a lyrical genius and I know for a fact his talent will continue to be recognized. MLC PR is thrilled to have signed this talented up and coming artist.”
Colin's first break came when he won the "BE A STAR" contest on Los Angeles’ leading rock radio station STAR 98.7. The victory landed him a demo deal with Hollywood Records. Although he was excited to garner a development deal with a prominent label, he didn’t feel like the time was right-- he wanted to work on his material. In order to reach his musical goals, Colin knew he had to continue to write, record and hone his skills, gathering the best material possible for his debut album. Since then, Colin's song "Lonely Fall" won “Best Male Vocal” and “Best Song” at the San Diego Music Awards followed by a “Best Pop Vocal” nomination for his song “Hey Yoko” at the Los Angeles Music Awards. His song “In Your Eyes" was also chosen for the top ten finals of the 2007 American Idol songwriter contest. It didn’t end here, early 2008 brought Colin a worldwide publishing agreement with NorthStar Media who placed one of his songs, “Nothing More to Say” on the hit Lifetime network show “Army Wives.”
