Smooth Jazz Celebrity and Recording Artist Chooses VMG Worldwide For Exclusive Management Representation
Online PR News – 03-August-2010 – – VMG Worldwide, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vexiom Corporation, one of the world’s most preeminent and diversified sports, media and entertainment companies, is proud to announce the signing of well respected smooth jazz recording artist, musician, and producer Dee Lucas to an exclusive worldwide management and marketing agreement. Lucas has completed production and preparing for the fall release of his current album and tour “Standing Room Only”, which is followed by the upcoming compilation album “Rebirth of The Smooth”. The current album includes several hot records featuring the self-titled radio hit “Standing Room Only” and additional smash hit singles “Scorpio” and “The Friday After”.
Born in Tanner, Alabama, smooth jazz saxophonist Dee Lucas is the youngest of four children. Surprisingly, no one in his family even knew he had a musical interest during his adolescent days because of his commitment to sports, particularly basketball. In fact Lucas, a ‘true’ self-taught musician, did not even pick up the sax until the age of 28. However, with self-reliance, determination, discipline, and unique musical style, Dee has reached a level of professional musicianship in a ‘fast-track’ manner that commands the respect from both listeners and musical peers. Never one to stop moving forward, his debut album was a tribute to George Howard titled “Remembrance”, and was released and distributed nationally in 2004 from his record label imprint, Mo Better Recordings; receiving top national and internet radio airplay from over 115 radio stations across the nation. Due to his debut success, Lucas, second album in 2007 titled “Something to Ride 2”, truly exceeded the expectations of his fans and continued the journey of his award-winning success throughout the jazz industry.
Over time Dee Lucas has developed his distinctive style by collaborating urban funk sounds to smooth-melodic tunes that is both relaxing and pleasing to the ear. He has long been considered one the country’s best well-kept secrets with a rapidly growing fan base. His outstanding success and talent has been recognized by several music industry power players, which has established the management relationship between Lucas and entertainment businessman Tyler L. Barr, founder of VMG Worldwide, and current CEO of Vexiom Corporation. Lucas has brought in his new management team, VMG Worldwide, to assist with worldwide representation and maximizing his brand value to the fullest potential. “Dee Lucas is no longer a best kept secret; his dedication and commitment to the preparation of his upcoming releases and national tour will prove that he deserves to be number one, and we're very excited to be apart of Dee’s legacy”, said Tyler L. Barr.
Dee Lucas has definitely earned the need to have a management team that can handle his business affairs, come up with new and innovative ideas, so he concentrate on what he loves the most, which is recording hit records and performing them live for his fans. With that final piece firmly in place, the top is the only place for Dee Lucas.
