"Paramount honors Piano with Pres. Carter, Black Sabbath, Tomorrows Bad Seeds."

HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) 11/12/10 — The 20th Annual Los Angeles Music Awards and its sister productions the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards, and the Phoenix Music Awards are all rolled into one event on Thursday, Nov. 18th, 2010. The event is on the lot at Paramount Studios inside the historic Paramount Theater.

This year’s event coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the 75th birthday of the historic Paramount piano.

Attendees and honorees are expected to include former President Jimmy Carter, Black Sabbath, award- winning actress Sally Kirkland, Led Zeppelin / Jimmy Hendrix Music producer Eddie Kramer, former Senator Max Cleland, Night Rangers’ Jack Blade, TV and pop stars Josh and JB Welch and actress Leigh Taylor Young.

Perhaps youngest of the expected winners are Hermosa Beach, CA-bred Tomorrows Bad Seeds, who are up for the Commercial Success of the Year award, with 150,000 paid downloads.

The Sony/RED/MRI-distributed UrbanTone Records band is generating hits among a wide array of audiences, including among the Ganja generation. TBS have performed with acts like UB40, The Wailers and 311. There is buzz surrounding Tomorrows Bad Seeds as they shut down the 2010 Sunset Music Festival headlined by the Smashing Pumpkins.

Lead Vocalist Moises Juarez said “Our music is a fusion of different styles- a little west coast- and not just rock, but reggae, hip hop, punk, blues, R&B and alternative music. Really we play whatever the song calls for. We are never looking to make the song a certain way, we kind of go with the flow of the music.”

This mix of music brings people together and makes everyone have a good time. Some critics describe Tomorrows Bad Seeds as “Beach Boys meet Bob Marley.”

Paramount will honor the instrument that composed the original score to the Wizard of Oz in 1935 when it was first delivered to the lot. Since that year, this piano has composed nearly 800 movie scores on its eighty-eight keys. The piano will be played at the L.A. Music Awards Main Event by Italian pianist Adriano Aponte and White House pianist David Osborne, who will also perform with local actress and singer, Juliette Goglia. -

"Great Sounds From Bad Seeds"

Tomorrow's Bad Seeds
by: Alee Thompson

If you're looking for something to up the ante of your iTunes library, your searching stops here. All you need to do is add water, and Tomorrow's Bad Seeds might just grow into one of your favorite new bands.

The five-piece group has made a name for themselves in California as one oft he most promising reggae/punk/rock bands around. Their sound, self-described as "a high energy rock tempo with conscious lyrics and reggae rhythms," is as addictive as it is infectious, pulling you in from the beginning with smooth vocals, intriguing lyrics and polished sounds.

While they started out as a three-piece acoustic group, TBS has grown onto Moi (lead vocals), Sean (guitar/vocals), Al (bass), Matt (guitar, vocals, decks, samples), and Johnny (drums). TBS have succeeded where so many other bands have failed in creating a new sound. Their influences span a range wider than most, crediting Slayer, Steel Pulse and 2Pac all in the same breath. With a drummer who likes to play hardcore metal tech and a singer who loves to sing R&B, the outcome could have been really bad or really good. Obviously, it was the latter.

"Early Prayers", their highly anticipated first album released by UrbanTone Records is a solid confirmation that this type of fusion music is not only possible, but something to love. The musicians bring their different styles and individual talent together to make a unique sound. Lead vocals by Moises are genuinely comparable to Sublime's late Bradley Nowell, and, alongside the band's equally talented musicians, have drawn critical acclaim and a solid fan base.

The guys are straightforward with their plans for the musical future, "We just want to tour the world by the likes of our music." They're taking things one step at a time, but their strides are getting faster with increasing outside interest in the Bad Seeds. The guys remain tight throughout, in it together 'till the end. "We're like brothers. It's like a family, like a marriage."

Although based in South Bay Los Angeles, TBS have made Hawai'i their second home, Taking time to make frequent trips to the Islands to gig. "Good people, good vibes. We love the weather, we love the surf, and I've got a lot of friends there," says Moi.

On top of an exhaustive schedule of shows along the coast of California, they keep their Hawaii fans happy by flying over for mini tours whenever the opportunity arises. While they started out on O'ahu paying a band in Waikiki twenty bucks to use their equipment for a set, shows today are packed with guys and girls skanking to their sound at Oahu's O-Lounge, Mikey's on the Big Island, and other venues throughout Kona and Hilo.

Their first trip as a band to Hawai'i, Tomorrow's Bad Seeds slept on pillbox in Kaneohe because they couldn't afford a hotel room. With the energy, determination and raw talent they bring to the music scene, their pillbox sleep over nights are definitely numbered. - Free Surf Magazine

"Tomorrows Bad Seeds Honored by USA4real"

The Reggae Ska Funk Dub scene became more bad than ever with the recent planting of Tomorrows Bad Seeds. A genre often heavily criticized after the death of the late great Bob Marley for copying, imitating, and never quite reinventing that Reggae sound. It took bands like Fishbone to evolutionize the mellow Reggae and incorporate that rocking funk to push the envelope and categorize the Ska element. It took a band like 311 and Sublime to commercialize it again. So bands like TBS could break new ground.

Now, with the long anticipated release of Early Prayer, their first LP produced by the Indie label Urbantone Records, the South Bay rooted Bad Seeds stay humble in not so humbling surroundings. It's not an easy thing to do with the beautiful beaches and girls of Manhattan Beach and the glam of Hollywood just up the 405 freeway. It can easily become background with new success as they begin to taste fame. The 5 piece ensemble makes waves in Tsunami proportions on Hawaii radio. Each island is picking up the Bad Seeds for local radio and to play shows. It's only a matter of time before the Left Coast catches wind and the southern beaches of Florida find TBS planted in their minds.

Early Prayers is a "Must listen, don't-skip-to-the-next-song-this-song-kicks-ass Album." Rhyme and Reason, Love Street, Warrior Poet, and Lost & Found are tracks that the radio could grab and take to the billboards. We don't like to single out individuals, but lead singer Moises Juarez has the smooth style with above Bob Marley potential. (If that's possible.) It's really too early to tell, the second and third albums are the true tests, but when you see TBS live you will understand. Why this sound was Lost and now it is Found by Warrior Poets on Love Street for the Rhyme and Reason that will be introduced to us: Moises Juarez, Matthew McEwan, Sean Chapman, Al Arnado, Johnny McEwan won't stay seeds forever. Even Tomorrows Bad Seeds have to grow into something bigger than their genuine purpose.
That's the Reggae Spirit.
