Having secured opportunities in two major entertainment cities, Now Hear This President Bruce Wawrzyniak was on both trips and since returning the momentum has continued with the signing of another new client.

The calendar change is fitting because Now Hear This itself has also been undergoing a transformation.  The good news is that these are all progressive developments that represent advancements from not only a year ago, but from when the company was founded almost seven years ago.

The new year comes in with new Now Hear This clients, notably Tony Caruso as well as a duo called Aurora.  Enthusiasm abounds both from our side and theirs for promotion of their talents.

Now Hear This has secured a national TV exposure opportunity for singer/songwriter Melissa Brethauer, as well as additional media who are writing about her and/or her CD.

Daytime, which is aired in more than 110 TV markets across the U.S., taped a show on Friday that includes an interview with Melissa, followed by her performing one of the songs from her debut CD, “Waiting.”

The show will air on Tuesday (August 31) at 10am Eastern time.

As previously reported on now-hear-this.net, communications services are now being provided for clients in addition to those whose focus is music only.  The newest addition is the Indoor Lacrosse Platform, a national initiative launching from a base in Orlando, Florida.

The Now Hear This company tagline of “Promoting Vocal Talent” has been turned inward as its president, Bruce Wawrzyniak, will be featured on broadcasts of Orlando Titans game this season.

Mr. Wawrzyniak will serve as the color commentator on the home games televised by the Bright House Sports Network and in the same capacity for non-TV games on the ESPN Radio affiliate in Orlando (1080 AM The Team).

Just in time for the start of a new month - which, as time flies, will soon be followed by the start of a new year - comes a new look for now-hear-this.net.

Said Now Hear This President Bruce Wawrzyniak, "We want very much to remain in the background and have our clients to be at the forefront of who our various audiences focus on.  However, there is an obvious reality in needing to maintain a modest yet professional image for Now Hear This through our website as much as through our other presentation vehicles and good old fashioned human interaction.

Like the diversity of its clients and the genres that their music spans, Now Hear This is expanding its horizons.  Spurred on by having branched out with a non-music-related product launch in late 2008, the West Central Florida-based company has recently done work for a health-care non-profit and is in talks with a potential new client that is also outside the scope of the music industry.  NHT President Bruce Wawrzyniak said, “The endeavor late last year seemed at the time like a special exception.  However, early in 2009 when someone accompanying a Now Hear This client start

Now Hear This worked closely with vocalist client Melissa Brethauer as well as Crystal Blue Sound Studios and the other vendors involved in the release of the singer/songwriter's debut CD (pictured below), which was released in late October.  In addition, a significant distribution deal was secured.  Full details on that and other developments surrounding the artist are on her website, which is maintained by Now Hear This.


With both radio and TV broadcasting on his résumé, Now Hear This President Bruce Wawrzyniak is easing into a role as the host of a new Podcast series called "Studio Life," which features interviews with artists that have completed one or more recording projects.  This news item will be updated with a link when the host website of those Podcasts posts the first two editions.  The debut interview has already been produced and the second has been recorded but is now entering post-production.

As an update to an item previously reported here that promoted this development, Now Hear This President Bruce Wawrzyniak served as the on-stage host (as pictured below) for an event on October 3 near Tampa featuring musicians from in and around the Bay area.  Called "Brandon Supports the Arts," the show took place that night in the theater at Music Showcase on Oakfield Drive near Kings.
