International Poetry Contingent - Call For Sponsorship

Whisper from the Heart is a club based in South Africa but also very active with children in Africa

We are a team of people passionate about The Arts and Literature and encourage people (mostly children) in the field of their interest. We promote their music, songs, art, photography, poetry and short stories, giving and getting them as much exposure as possible.

We have a close knit relationship with these young people with many of them looking to us for support and guidance, both professionally and personally.

The Club, Whisper from the Heart, established in 2004 has been extensively involved internationally but more actively in South Africa (and Africa) in the Arts/Music/Literature/Writing and in our existence over 14 years we have:

*Coached thousands of students worldwide in the Arts and Literature
*Hosted a competition each year and paid valuable prizes
*Given thousands exposure by publishing their works of writing (Now 20 books of verse published)
*Released DVD’S each year with their Art and Photography
*Arranged cultural evenings for musicians getting them exposure in the world of music
*Assisted in getting a Student placed for further study in Journalism in the USA
*Averted suicides in young people

All the costs have been met from personal funding over the 14 years.

We have a dedicated team of volunteers working five days a week to make this dream come true for so many students. Our Administrator (Giselle) has manned the full time office for the 14 years as a volunteer.

Our funds are depleted but we are grateful for any funding that can be forthcoming.

Please consider a sponsorship to keep the club afloat (Now threatened with closure disappointing thousands of children in Africa).

You might wish to visit our website and “FEEL” our passion and also be able to make a donation on it.

Please consider joining LadyLake in supporting Whisper from the Heart by donating here. Thank you!

Charity Umbrella Welcomes Champions Against Bullying And New Artists The Fifth

As part of our ongoing Charity Umbrella project unifying independent music with charitable causes, LadyLake Entertainment is pleased to announce our latest endeavor, uniting our band The Fifth with Champions Against Bullying in the promotion of the new anti-bullying song 'School Day Runaway'.

The mission statement, being 'committed to creating a society where every child has the opportunity to develop, learn and thrive in an environment without fear, without violence and without limitation', echoes that of The Fifth's lyrics which portray a sad, but all too common story of a teenage girl, bullied at school, who becomes depressed and isolated. Her busy working parents however, fail to see all the signs until she disappears off into the night as yet another School Day Runaway.

The song was written by a US Songwriters Hall of Fame member, and is performed by The Fifth as a debut single with an Elvis Costello sound.

We at LadyLake have always been strong supporters of children and family, education and enlightenment.

Won't you share our message by supporting 'School Day Runaway', our band The Fifth, and the wonderful work being done by Champions Against Bullying?

Please note that ***50% of all sales of the single will be donated to Champions Against Bullying.

We ask that you please SHARE this information with your friends!

We'd like to thank our friends in independent radio for supporting this cause!!

Tony Moore - Perfect and Beautiful

Our friend TONY MOORE, formerly of the band CUTTING CREW, has a brand new single out called Perfect and Beautiful and is currently tour.

The track is available for download at the following locations:



Tony's long and eclectic career in the music business includes leaving school to become an original member of Iron Maiden at the end of the 70’s, scoring a Christmas hit in Holland with his song “Fool” in the early 80’s and becoming the keyboard player in Cutting Crew ( I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight) during the mid 80’s.

In the late 90’s he founded and ran the seminal London songwriters venue, the Kashmir Klub, where he played a role in the early careers of artists like Damien Rice, KT Tunstall, Imogen Heep and since 2003 Tony has repeated the same concept and format at The Bedford where he’s been at the beginning of artistic journeys for acts like Paolo Nutini, Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Jamie Lawson and many more.

At the start of April 2013, Soho Radio launched in London and Tony was invited to present a regular weekly show which features live music, interviews and special guests. With over 150 shows under his belt and more than 300 guests to date, the show is one of the longest running on the station which, at the end of 2016, was awarded Best Online Radio Station In The World in the Mixcloud awards.

Through the summer of 2015 he worked in Berlin acting in a brand new movie called Mr Rudolphos Jubilee, playing the part of ‘Colin’ an enigmatic, complex but humorous Hit Man with a sweet tooth ! It had it’s world premiere in Berlin on January 28th to a sold audience and is currently being seen across Europe.

For the last few years he has also been co-writing, producing and touring with emerging artist ILONA.

Tony is now currently recording material for a new solo album having released the lead single, a powerful ballad called Perfect And Beautiful that made it's debut in the iTune singer/songwriter charts at 19.

For the rest of 2017 he is lining up live shows in the UK and USA as well as preparing to release more tracks ahead of the album.

StoneKracker at Heart of Texas Rock Fest

We were pleased to find our friends from Ear Splitting Media active amongst the wide variety of events taking place during SXSW. A big opportunity for independent artists lies within the SXSW unofficial party and showcase scene, which offers free events which are easy to attend and often come with freebies such as food, drinks, and swag bags or samples. Ear Splitting Media decided to do a full investigation for their Out on the Town video series while supporting their band StoneKracker who performed at the Heart of Texas Rock Fest. They also enjoyed the music of Stoned Evergreen Travelers from Tacoma, Washington, Heritage Band from Destin, Florida, and J and the 9s from Brooklyn, New York during Music Week. You can see more of their favorites, including artists from the Chicken Ranch Records SXSW Day Party 2017 at the Ear Splitting Media YouTube Channel.

Top Trending Radio Show - Music 101 on Twin Radio

At the same time our group was in Austin, our friend in Australia, Dallas Cosmas of Prototype Musique (, an independent music production label, had put the finishing touches on his new release, "The Memory Keys". We had met Dallas in 2016 through our great friends in radio, Twin Radio Syndicate. Hosts Carnell and Darnell Alexander put together a wonderful LadyLake/ Prototype musical showcase on their top-rated show "Music 101" then, and when Dallas had a new release coming out the SXDU idea began.

"The Memory Keys" by Dallas Cosmas

About "The Memory Keys": Seeing great records as "timeless" and upon revisiting his vinyl collection, Dallas Cosmas reflected on the effect of music and how that changes with age. He then went back to the music which had affected him the most during his formative years. These reflective thoughts created the in studio dialogue which resulted in his new album "The Memory Keys".

About Prototype Musique: Prototype Musique operates a collective of multi-tasked musicians and engineers that will work with your ideas to help shape it into high production music whether your vibe is high-gear rock, self penned acoustic, glittering pop or sampling jazz beats, capturing you at your very best utilizing a wide mix of digital & vintage analogue equipment. Prototype Musique was formed by composer/producer Dallas Cosmas who has been a stalwart of Melbourne’s thriving music scene for around 3 decades writing, performing and recording, also touring nationally around Australia holding down multi-instrumental work. He has performed and produced in all styles for groups, solo and cinematic work. This work includes local and international digital releases including Aria-charting albums.
Prototype is "very pleased to be teaming across the Pacific with U.S promo heavy-weights, LadyLake PR."

New Release by Sennid Simon from In-Ex Records

As frequently occurring on social media, during our pre-promotion of this project, we met new friends, UK label In-Ex Records ( who are releasing rastafarian reggae "Ire With You" by Sennid Simon of Oregon in a few weeks. Please visit ( for more music and information. In-Ex Records established for twelve years, is not only an independent record label, but are also registered PRS / MCPS members. They specialize in unsigned and indie artists who are interested in taking their music career to that ‘next’ level. The company was founded by Senior, who while growing up in the ghetto of Kingston, Jamaica, came across several of today's well known famous reggae artists and musicians, including Admiral Tibet, Ninja, Ansell Collin, Luciano and more, who were finding it difficult getting themselves recognized by major record labels and publishing companies. Having observed the industry since then, and seeing that the same problem still exists, In-Ex Records was give artists a 'real deal'.

LadyLake Entertainment Celebrates 10 Years!

Artists and companies from around the globe can unite easily through the use of social media, engaging their networks and sharing information and links which reach new audiences with the click of a mouse and the ease of mobile devices.
