LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- High-profile industry executive, Jonathan Hay, and business expert, Michael A Smith, have created, conceptualized and produced a new group called Pink Grenade, that will be releasing its debut album "Fear Of A Pink Planet" in June 2014. Smith and Hay are the founders of SMH Records, a budding record label that has distribution through Caroline, a division of Capitol Music Group/Universal Music Group.
"I'm so happy I reached out to Jim Urie [President/CEO of Universal Music Distribution] who helped make this deal with Caroline happen for us. We love working with their team filled with so many creative people from EMI, Capitol, Universal, etc. It's a great fit." - Jonathan Hay (Producer, Co-Founder SMH Records)
In order to achieve sound quality at the highest level possible, Jonathan Hay and Michael A Smith assembled a Grammy award-winning, all-star team. The production duo secured veterans such as Sylvia Massy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash), John Frye (Outkast, T.I.) , Richard Segal Huredia (Eminem, Dr Dre), Ken Lewis (Jay-Z, Kanye West), Jerry Hey (Michael Jackson, Katy Perry), John "JR" Robinson (Daft Punk, Quincy Jones) and Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Lady Gaga). Smith and Hay also brought on Dove award-winner, Justin "Sky" Boller (Lecare, B.Howard) to help produce some material on the upcoming "Fear Of A Pink Planet". It has been confirmed that a surprise iconic celebrity will be making a few guest appearances on the album as well.
One of the members of the group is heiress Ambimbola Fernandez, daughter of Billionaire Nigerian gemstone tycoon Antonio Deinde Fernandez, who is referred to simply as "Bim". Other group members include: Teddy, Jonny, Mekai, Ivy-Rose, Renzo, Danny, Bjorn and Pinky.
"Having nine group members is influenced by the Wu-Tang Clan, but it has more elements and layers of Pop and Rock music. All the members, with the exception of Bim, are initially staying anonymous with customes and masks, because it's about the team first, not the individual. We are excited to roll out Pink Grenade." – Michael A Smith (Producer, Co-Founder SMH Records)
Jonathan Hay and Michael A Smith are the visionaries leading the way, along with the rest of the SMH Records team including Erika Smith, Sabrina Hale, Billy Rassel, West PR, Crowd Surf, Michael Bentley, Juan McCloud and more. Besides developing the group and the artists within, the team is also working on a reality show called "Gold Blooded", slated to air on a major television network this year.
SMH Records is based out of Charlotte, North Carolina and recently made a stir within the entertainment industry when news was released that they had raised $30 million in capital. Additionally, international news outlets reported that SMH Records was offering to sign Lindsay Lohan to a record deal. Jonathan Hay responded to those reports by saying, "As far as music goes, our only focus is on Pink Grenade right now."

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
