SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brian Evans, who captured millions of fans across the world with his single "At Fenway," which featured William Shatner as the home plate umpire in his YouTube video, followed by "I'm A Traveler" on YouTube, will record a new album in the studio with legendary producer Narada Michael Walden, known for his work with Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder. All of which have earned Walden numerous Grammy Awards. The "At Fenway" video has already surpassed 11.6 million views on YouTube in just the last several months, while "I'm A Traveler" has garnered more than 7 millions views…even with a music video accompanying the song on YouTube.
The new CD will be entitled "Brian Evans," and will include eight original songs and five covers. The original songs will include "Croonerman," "Creature," and "Fast Car, Nascar," a song dedicated to NASCAR fans.
Evans is also the co-writer of the forthcoming novel "Horrorscope," which will be released in Kindle, hardcover, and audio book on March 15th. Walden has also signed on to produce the eventual soundtrack of any motion picture that occurs as a result of the fictional novel. The audio book is currently in production, and will be released in audiobook in Germany, translated into the Germany language given the enormous popularity of audiobooks in that country.
The song "Creature," will be recorded at the actual "Psycho" house on the Universal Studios film lot, and is a Halloween themed song. "Croonerman," will film in Las Vegas.
Evans' mother, Helen Marie Bousquet, penned the song "Croonerman," prior to her passing in October of 2012, one week after the music video "At Fenway" was filmed, resulting in Evans taking time off and relocating to Hawaii.
Brian's songs, heard on such shows as "So You Think You Can Dance," "Big Shots," and movies such as "The Wedding Weekend," will also play a part in the "Horrorscope" film soundtrack. He has up until recently performed as the opening act for Jay Leno in Las Vegas, Joan Rivers, and more.
"It has taken me a long time to adjust to my new reality with my mother not being here the way that I had expected, and I'm simply ready now to proceed with our collective goals," says Evans, who is the first solo artist ever to film a music video entirely at Fenway Park in the park's history.
The new CD will also include original tracks "Planet Blue," "Boston," and other songs. He also intends to cover "Love On The Rocks," and other songs he holds dear.
Evans, originally from Haverhill, Massachusetts, is also writing several non-fiction books this year. He was featured on "The Today Show," when Matt Lauer broadcast a portion of the music video during the "Spanning The World" segment.
The singer attended MIDEM, a music festival in Cannes, France earlier this month where numerous licensing interest occurred as far away as Australia and Korea.
"We are currently putting everything together, and I am looking forward to our ideas resulting in reality. 2014 will see some very interesting developments in my career. I have a focus now that I hadn't had before, and it's my job to deliver great music, and to make certain my mother has the legacy that she deserves."
13 Governors have issued Sleep Apnea Proclamations, with 37 to go, following her passing.

The latest CD, produced by Walden, features 11 songs, a commemorative booklet, and a DVD of the music video with special features. It is also sold at Walmart.com.
"I personally believe that this will be my last studio album prior to my turning my direction at simply writing books, but one never knows," he says.
The novel "Horrorscope" will be released on March 15th, 2014. Signed copies of the CD are available on his website in a limited and numbered release series. The book "Horrorscope" is now accepting pre-orders at brianevans.com. The book will be release at Amazon Kindle, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and everywhere else ebooks, and audiobooks, are sold.
"This was a hard transformative year, and I am very appreciative of those who stuck by me," Evans concludes.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at di...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
