"The Sing-Off" Winner, Home Free Signs with Columbia Records

CRAZY LIFE AVAILABLE DIGITALLY NOW

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Home Free, the winners of the competitive fourth season of The Sing-Off, whose performances captivated millions and launched the group into the national spotlight, has signed with Columbia Records.  Their major label debut album Crazy Life is available digitally now and immediately hit #1 on the iTunes country chart and #4 on the overall iTunes chart.  The physical album will be available on February 18.  You can download the album here: http://smarturl.it/HomeFreeIT.

Home Free performed on the Today Show yesterday in their first national appearance since winning The Sing-Off.  Check out their performance of "Wake Me Up" here.

Crazy Life features a collection of original music as well as a selection of songs the group performed on the show including, "Ring Of Fire" (Johnny Cash) and a Hunter Hayes medley featuring "I Want Crazy" from the show's finale.  Home Free will join a handful of finalists for The Sing-Off Live Tour!, which kicks off a 32-night run of dates on February 19 in Verona, NY. For more information on the tour please go to www.Singofftour.com.

The all-male country group of Minnesota natives — Chris Rupp, Tim Foust, Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist and Adam Rupp — are a tight-knit bunch that have gotten even closer by performing in concerts across the country. Their years of performance experience add to their refreshing country sound.   As an a cappella ensemble, Home Free performs without any instruments, only their voices. Adam Rupp is an award-winning vocal percussionist, Austin Brown and Rob Lundquist are tenors, Chris Rupp is a baritone and Tim Foust provides the bass which The Sing-Off's host Nick Lachey called a "seismic event."

On The Sing-Off, Home Free matched its vocal talent and polished stage presence with precise arrangements and high-energy vocals that brought the audience and the judges to their feet night after night.  The a cappella quintet regularly reworked classic and modern numbers like Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway," and Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman," giving the songs their own distinctive country twang.  Throughout the show Home Free showed their flexibility in both style and technique.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
