Gates is looking forward to sharing the on-stage experience with fans.
“The ultimate goal for me is to get my music out to the public in a manner when I can do tours and really get up close and personal with my fan base,” said Gates. ” I really think the greatest measure of the artist/fan relationship happens on stage.

The Secret Handshake (Luis Dubuc) is gearing up to release his sixth studio album, Night & Day August 17th, 2010 on Triple Crown Records and is currently on tour playing new songs from the upcoming release. The first single “Domino” is available today for free download via Facebook here: http://bit.ly/aBsjB1.
It is an album title that truly signposts a major sea change. Night & Day holds fast to its title’s pronouncement of seemingly polar opposites. The gripping melodies are still firmly in place, but that’s where the similarities between Dubuc’s back catalog and his latest creation end.
For the past several years, Dubuc and his fusion of sugary pop hooks, laid atop a host of samples and caked with computer-enhanced effects, created the signature electronic-pop sound that landed him the sort of success that many artists in indie circuits could only wish for.
For a limited time, Klay is offering a free download of the radio edited version of the “Mungabunga” track to fans, media and radio.
Raised in the 60s by free-spirited artists living like gypsies in picturesque locations like Cheyene Walk, Chelsea or Cornwall, Klay D-C (AKA Klay Dumas-Copas) is a master of creating musical tapestries that are full of flavor and life. His latest solo release, Ritmo, is a magical musical journey that combines technical prowess with an ear for colorful melodies.
A natural story-teller, the first track, “Mungabunga,” introduces us to a soft acoustic piano before blossoming into a wiggy, upbeat number garnished with salsa rhythms. The totally unexpected arrangement dances between the acoustic piano and electric instruments (guitar and bass) in a melodic tease that excites and intoxicates.
