Overdue by two weeks and in no hurry to arrive to her proud parents, Leland and Theresa, Deirdre Leah Faegre made up for lost time by learning to swim before she could walk at nine months.

Typing at four, with determination and confidence she proceeded to each task and accomplishment with extraordinary grace and style and became a model for others during her developmental years that also included gymnastics and a sudden interest in the piano at age nine.

Her dad's passion for Vangellis' 'To the Unknown Man,' was the inspiration that piqued her interest in playing the piano, but it was her steady cultural diet of John, Paul, George and Ringo that established her direction as a singer/songwriter and musician/arranger.

But not until she received international recognition for her 'Cartwheel Heard 'Round the World' where Deirdre dominated a nearly a week long news cycle in November, 2004 with many appearances on radio and television including Ryan Seacrest, Today and Jimmy Kimmel Live who described her as "...an American Hero," would she be firmly ensconced in her music.

A published singer/songwriter at thirteen, the worldwide release of her infectiously innocent, 'Shining In My Hair,' appearing on an artist compilation CD from AudioSparx entitled, Female Pop - Volume 1, came only 9 months after its debut in Summer, 2006. A collection of female-vocal pop music with a flair, including pop, soft pop, alt pop and Lillith Fair-styled pop music tracks, 'Shining In My Hair' stands out as an endearingly attractive statement of youthful wonder and love of life.

Based in the United Kingdom, Deeper Thought Ltd, a new entry in the coin operated video game industry and creators of amusement content for video games that build on current and popular trends has licensed Deirdre's 'Shining In My Hair' for 'Make Meez A Rockstar!' a music based Flash game. Deeper Thought Ltd specialize in game and system development, game design, programming, hardware design and interface development.

Deirdre's re-released follow-up single, 'In My Eyes' was placed in a short film written and directed by Jack Kearney of [The JAX Company Film Production Group LLC] entitled, 'Indian Hill,' about a 12 year old boy and his friends growing up in suburban Portland, Connecticut, circa 1975. A neighborhood coming of age story about the challenge of conquering 'Indian Hill Road' on a bicycle; a feat that separates the “little kids” from the “big kids” in their neighborhood.

In November, 2014, Deirdre licensed "Shining In My Hair" from her music catalogue to Riva Donna, an exclusive Greek beauty spa located in Thessaloniki for a 30 second television commercial on TV100, a local station.

At seventeen, Deirdre represented the Ice Skating Association of Ireland as Junior Ladies Champion on the world stage of figure skating competition.

A County and State Delegate to the 2012 Nevada Republican Convention, ASCAP Singer/Songwriter Deirdre Leah Faegre now resides in Brighton, a seaside resort on the southeast coast of England where The Argus [part of the US Gannett media group] described her as “a standard in Brighton’s acoustic and folk scene” thanks to headline appearances on radio and stage including Brighton’s first annual ‘Together The People.’

The Ice Won't Break
An inspirational ode to figure skating with Celtic instrumentation and a lyrical focus on perseverance of the skating discipline. It was placed previously by the ISAI [Ice Skating Association of Ireland] in a promotional campaign for the 55th ISU [International Skating Union] Congress to Ireland.

Big Yellow Taxi
Although hardly my favorite Joni Mitchell song, Big Yellow Taxi still resonates perhaps better than any other in her catalog of great work when I perform it, which even without a full rhythm section, is always great fun for patrons and attendees.

On Top Of a Cloud Announces Compilation Placement with South Korea's Wantreez Music

STATELINE, Nev. - Oct. 30, 2017 - PRLog On Top Of a Cloud is pleased to announce the placement of "In My Eyes" to Pleasand Pop Music, a compilation CD from various artists by Wantreez Music, "a South Korean commercial radio broadcasting service for businesses and the developer of Rhymeduck, a corporate and franchise partner for music products. Rhymeduck provides brand marketing services that specialize in cost reduction.

On Top Of a Cloud Composer Deirdre Leah Faegre was delighted with the placement by Wantreez Music:

"Placed in a short film entitled, 'Indian Hill,' my recorded heartbeat from a sonogram is heard in the intro as my arranger-producer dad wanted to convey the very special interest he had in my arrival even half-way through gestation by recording my heart with a handheld cassette recorder in a physicians office."

"With the first piano motif begins a 'dialogue' with my dad [on the outside] with his piano part answering. A 'conversation' develops between us in this way until the moment of birth itself as the production gives way to cellos, cymbal dynamics and a French horn section that enjoin the piano representing the 'trauma' of emerging from the womb and its resolution which quickly follows."

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1347346/

"At this point, a pop ensemble of drums, bass, guitars and two sections of violins displaying the bowing techniques of spiccato and pizzicato accompany the lyrical verses and choruses of the song structure until the bridge, where backwards lead guitar dynamically punctuate the lyrical lament."

Established in 2011, South Korean startup Wantreez Music partnered with the most popular music identification application company, Shazam, in August, 2016. According to the Korea Times:

"South Korean startup Wantreez Music inked a partnership to get big data from the most popular music identification app company, Shazam…Wantreez Music will receive a huge amount of Shazam's global user search data categorized by region and genre."

"Through the deal, Wantreez Music will receive an average of 20 million user queries a day, which the firm said will help its service of helping stores select music to play. In addition, the firm hopes that K-pop will take a firm root abroad as it will be able to export customized Korean songs after confirming their popularity by region."

"I am delighted about our partnership with the world's most popular music identification service provider Shazam," Wantreez Music CEO Noh Jong-chan said. "Through this, we will be able to hear the same background music in stores here that's played in a Michelin star restaurant in New York or a luxury brand store in London. It offers a good opportunity for clients who wish to increase sales through music marketing."

Shazam's APAC manager, Jonathan Lee, said, "We are excited to be partnering with Wantreez Music within the Asia region to provide them with access to the top trending songs from around the globe. With over 700 million global users we generate over 20 million requests every day and from this data we can provide unique and detailed insights into the most popular songs across multiple genres and regions globally. By providing access to our comprehensive data and analysis, Wantreez will be able to make better and more informed decisions on their musical selections for the stores and businesses that they serve."

"I view this as a very desirable case of cooperation that goes beyond borders, where international big data skills and materials are used domestically," said Prof. Lee Min-hye at Winchester University. "Wantreez Music can use the opportunity to advance into the music service industry overseas."

"Through continuing to cooperate with Shazam, Wantreez Music plans to add value to the data accumulated over time, the company said."

Returning to the Wantreez Music compilation placement, Deirdre added:

"The chorus returns which gives way to a free-style section of production evocative of the psychedelia of the late '60's with tamboura, dulcimer, McCartneyesque bass guitar part and an 'I Am The Walrus' cello section which sets up the outro with a IV of IV chord transition to the song's conclusion."

Taxi, an independent artist and repertoire (A&R) firm that acts as a casting agent to the labels and Hollywood studios, variously describes "In My Eyes":

"Another beautiful song! A strong lyric theme...in my opinion, you are the best artist for these singer-songwriter or Classic Pop style[s]...This song has so many great elements. Fantastic catchy hook with beautiful lyrics and great musical ideas...very strong vocals...nicely produced...intro is really cool. Good musicianshipgreat playing...You're quite expressive...I do hear the influence of the Beatles in both your music and writing...What impresses me is that you reach for vivid imagery in your lyrics...You have a cool style and sound going as well...This music is very unique and has very strong artistic identity! I like the vocal performances a lot and I also really like the orchestral flair and arrangements...This music has an "Indie Pop" quality and also a "retro Pop" quality, but the voice keeps it sounding more fresh...and I certainly hear a potent artist emerging here...The music here is great...Very accomplished, well made, beautiful in fact...You have a lovely voice and a really unique melodic/lyric sense. What a beautiful talent you are! There are many interesting things happening melodically and musically...I will be paying attention to where you go from here...The lyrics express a heartfelt sentiment. Great job giving the chorus a sense of release and a dynamic shift in gears. The chord progression is well-crafted, with natural transitions between sections. The mood conjured by the music is a good fit for the emotional tone of the words. The musicianship is consistently impressive, and there is lots of tasty playing here. In particular, you create some great lush textures with the string orchestration."

"In My Eyes" is available from Amazon and other fine stores:

On Top Of a Cloud Announces Licensing Deal in Greece

On Top Of a Cloud is pleased to announce the licensing of "Shining In My Hair" from its music catalogue by Riva Donna, an exclusive Greek beauty spa located in Thessaloniki for a 30 second television commercial on TV100, a local station.

A published singer/songwriter at thirteen, the worldwide release of Deirdre's infectiously innocent, 'Shining In My Hair,' appearing on an artist compilation CD from AudioSparx entitled, Female Pop - Volume 1, came only 9 months after its debut in Summer, 2006. A collection of female-vocal pop music with a flair, including pop, soft pop, alt pop and Lillith Fair-styled pop music tracks, 'Shining In My Hair' stands out as an endearingly attractive statement of youthful wonder and love of life.

Leland Thomas Faegre, On Top Of a Cloud Founder and President was delighted by the news from AudioSparx who catalogues his repertoire.

"It is always heartening to receive notification of a licensing deal from our catalogue, but it is especially so when it is one of my daughter's compositions," said Faegre.

AudioSparx is a digital marketplace for buying and selling sound effects, music, loops and ringtones. Since its founding in 1996, the company has since grown into an amazing collection of audio content from over 2,720 independent publishers, artists, and production houses.

On Top Of a Cloud, LLC Announces Licensing Deals With Publishing Partners

On Top Of a Cloud, LLC is pleased to announce the completion of two new licensing agreements from co-publishing relationships with AudioSparx and ProductionTrax in its catalog of work.

AudioSparx, 'a licensing agent, service provider, distributor and publisher of high-quality audio content to clients in film and television production,' has licensed Deirdre Leah Faegre's cover version of John Lennon's 'Across the Universe' to AM French, a filmmaker in the United Kingdom whose feature film, 'Victims of Love' is currently in production.

ProductionTrax, a provider of 'superior-quality music intended for use in multimedia, film, television and interactive media on an on-demand basis,' has licensed Leland Thomas Faegre's 'It Was a Dark and Stormy Night' to Anthony DAndrea, an actor, film director, sound and film editor, and writer known for his work in 'Thrillkill,' 'Prom Night II,' 'Beverly Hills Cop II' and others.

"It is wonderful to have such a great team of co-publishers working for the placement of music from our portfolio" said Leland Faegre, Founder and President of On Top Of a Cloud, LLC who also contributes to the company's catalog of music production.

"And it should come as no surprise that when my daughter's work is licensed, it is a very special source of pride. Especially since it [Lennon/McCartney's 'Across the Universe'] was her idea to make piano the basic instrument in the arrangement rather than guitar and inspired me to arrange and produce the track in the first place, Faegre said.

About 'Across the Universe:'

"Awakened by my daughter playing a piano version of 'Across the Universe' in November, 2007, I remember how inspirational her interpretation of John Lennon's acoustic guitar version was for me and I asked for her to record the piano track immediately so that I could consider the arrangement and production further."

"Following our relocation in January, 2008 and the studio configuration of On Top Of a Cloud, Lake Tahoe, I went to work immediately on the basic tracks by interpreting the electric guitar, bass and drum parts the way George Harrison and surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr would likely have contributed to a theoretical production of the Spector-produced acoustic guitar arrangement from 'Let It Be,' the twelfth and final studio album from the Beatles."

About 'It Was a Dark and Stormy Night:'

"Stripped of its production, its category or genre would have to be 'blues;' but even without the arrangement, I thought the composition was eerie and applicable to themes of fright and horror. Recorded at 63 bpm, the arrangement seeks to capture Frankenstein's gait or walking speed, while the bass guitar primarily gives it heft and force. A powerful cello arrangement with sundry trombones and brass complete the ambience of paranoia."

"Written on piano, my original analog recording included excerpts of the original 'War of the Worlds' radio broadcast which has been the working title for the track for about twenty-five years. Written a decade prior to the 'Roland architecture period' and without any specific external event that I can recall, the composition nonetheless arouses an ambience of fear, and I was only too happy to complete the production."

On Top Of a Cloud, LLC Takes 20% Stake in KTHO

Following several months of discussion that originated last summer, KTHO owner and long-time Southern California broadcaster Darrell Wampler [The Insane Darrell Wayne] has announced that Coyote Grill owner Leland Faegre, has taken a 20% equity stake in KTHO.

“We are always working on the “next big thing” at K-Tahoe. Being associated with Leland and the Coyote Grill gives us an inspired partner and a wonderful opportunity to expand our on-air presence with a live, local enhancement. I am proud of this new teaming arrangement” Wampler said of the venture.

The announcement comes as the Coyote Grill is in the process of rolling out a strategic expansion of its business model to include entertainment, gaming and an array of coffees and espressos as a compliment to its popular restaurant and bar.

"Although familiar with local radio as an advertiser and producer of my own commercials and for the 'Double Trouble Sports Bash,' I had not met Darrell whose career I had followed 40 years ago in Southern California” said Faegre about the purchase.

After several missed opportunities, Faegre was eventually introduced to Wampler by Tahoe Basin radio veteran Bill Kingman who started his career at KPPC in Los Angeles.

"I met Darrell through Bill Kingman, a regular patron and friend of the Coyote Grill. Bill and I loved to talk about the Los Angeles radio market and radio generally and offered to introduce me to Darrell,” said Faegre following the announcement.

Faegre joked that when he finally met ‘The Insane Darrell Wayne,’ he wasn’t nearly as ‘insane’ as his reputation that preceded him, describing the meeting as "long overdue, fateful and as though we had known each other most of our lives which in a way, we had."

"Leland's experience in the music industry, finance and provocative background will be an enormous asset to the growth of our business" said Paul Middlebrook, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of KTHO Radio.

"KTHO prides itself on being a strong partner with our community and Leland’s commitment to this community is well established. We believe that partnership will only grow stronger with the addition of Leland to the KTHO family. I look forward to working with him.”

Describing Wampler as “a very impressive and knowledgeable, veteran broadcaster,” Faegre said he had followed Darrell's radio career which included his role as Program Director at KROQ in Southern California after graduating from high school.

"As a musician, I followed radio all my life," said the Coyote Grill owner whose father's career in advertising included Los Angeles area media colossus RKO’s KHJ AM and KRTH FM.

“I loved radio long before my father entered the business,” Faegre recalls. “So when he went into the industry, we always had long conversations about the ever-changing landscape of the Los Angeles area radio market.”

Faegre continued on his introduction with Darrell, “Early on in our discussions, Darrell revealed his interest in developing content for a program of live, local performances and the concept was exactly what I was already planning for the Coyote Grill.”

KTHO Sales Manager George Alm who has known Faegre since he purchased the Coyote Grill in 2009 said, “I am very pleased to welcome Leland aboard. His knowledge of music, commitment to our community and what a small business owner goes through day to day makes him a perfect fit for the KTHO Family. I see great things ahead for Lake Tahoe & KTHO Radio.

Leland Thomas Faegre, an ASCAP composer with a performance background, who along with his daughter, Deirdre Leah Faegre [a published ASCAP songwriter at the age of thirteen] whose endearing ‘Shining In My Hair’ underscores Coyote Grill radio commercials, will form the nucleus of the new entertainment model in the Tahoe Basin with professional sound and lighting reinforcement for all performers.

“Darrell and I would like to broadcast from the Coyote Grill several times a week. The contiguous space,” Faegre continued, “will facilitate a large designated entertainment area capable of accommodating various professional entertainment, musical and comedy touring acts.”

The planned comfortable-seating of the acquired entertainment space will also accommodate catering, large variable group functionality, and long-imagined internet and terrestrial radio and television broadcasting resulting from in-house technical capability, extending value to the Coyote Grill brand and customer loyalty.

Faegre said, "The expansion of the Coyote Grill will serve as the cornerstone of our formative, community-oriented and mutually beneficial business models, attracting new and existing customers by providing attractive performances, extending our hours of operation, originating new revenue streams from gaming not currently possible and will enable the cross-promotion of KTHO and the Coyote Grill."

Located in the Round Hill Square Shopping Center on the Nevada side of South Lake Tahoe, Faegre believes the Coyote Grill will be the Tahoe Basin’s “most locally attractive restaurant, tavern, live performance and gaming destination.”

“The necessary provisional space for entertainment and gaming,” Faegre said, “will also make possible the opportunity for expanded coffee and espresso choices from our Gardnerville-based, strategic partner Blind Dog Coffee, filling an aromatic vacuum created by the vacancy of Not Just Java, a previously popular, coffee-centric business model in Round Hill Square.”

The Coyote Grill Sports, Entertainment and Gaming Center will serve a wide demographic spectrum of patronage from Zephyr Cove in Douglas County, Nevada [20,927 people within a five mile radius and an average household income of approximately $109,779 a census-designated place (CDP)].

On Top Of a Cloud is pleased to announce the licensing of “Through a Rainbow” by Four Seasons, Florence, Italy, a “transformed historic treasure in Florence....” from its music catalogue.

'As Four Seasons has grown from one hotel to 82 in 35 countries, the deeply instilled culture, personified by our employees, continues to get stronger. Over nearly 50 years, our people have built an unrivalled depth of reliability, trust and connection with our guests – a connection we will steadfastly uphold, now and always.’

Leland Thomas Faegre, On Top Of a Cloud Founder and President of Milky Way Incorporated, was delighted by the news from AudioSparx who catalogues his repertoire.

“I believe Samantha Oliveria from ‘The Workhouse,’ [a Canadian production company] did a tremendous job matching the sophistication and luxury of their Florence, Italy hotel location with “Through a Rainbow,” which I have always thought is a very beautifully arranged piece,” said the composer and Founder of On Top Of a Cloud, a music publishing subsidiary of Milky Way Incorporated.

Faegre continued, “Just as a rainbow appears and arrests our vision, so too does this production engage the listener to imagine its beauty as though one was witnessing its splendor for its naturally brief, yet spectacular duration.”

An enchanted city sanctuary in the midst of Florence, with an art-filled Renaissance palazzo and conventino frame a centuries-old private park, the company now welcomes guests to 50 properties, on every continent except Antarctica...

More than ever, Four Seasons Private Residences, Residence Clubs and other branded residential offerings have been integrated with urban and resort Four Seasons locations. The strength of the brand has become a promise of a quality of life.

On Top Of a Cloud announced today the licensing of “Pathetique” from its music catalog by the Animals Asia Foundations, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of the Asiatic Black Bear (Moon Bears) from bear bile farms across Asia where bile is extracted from the bear's gallbladder for use in traditional Chinese medicines.

According to Jill’s Blog, the premiere of, “Moon Bear Rescue: A decade on…” included “over 100 major supporters, celebrities and the Hong Kong media for the celebration and launch of the 20 minute documentary.

http://www.animalsasia.org/blog

“The evening, “Bears on Film”, saw old friends and new supporters meeting together at the British Consulate-General – a venue kindly arranged by generous long-standing supporter Caroline Sprod with her husband Ali Bullock who has also been so generously helping with his photography skills - together with lovely assistant Mandy…”

Jill’s blog continues, “The film drew gasps of sadness from the audience as, this year, we have deliberately featured the more stark reality of bear farming in the hope that supporters everywhere can help us to spread the word responsibly and help to accelerate the end of this truly hideous practice.”

Due for release on September, 1, 2010, “Animals Asia Foundation - Inside the Moon Bear Rescue Centre, China,” will be underscored by “Pathetique,” written, arranged and produced by On Top Of a Cloud Founder, composer and Publisher, Leland Thomas Faegre who was delighted by the news.

“I am obviously thrilled by the decision of Media Village to synch “Pathetique” to this trailer for the documentary. “Pathetique” is a classical work which is actually two compositional ideas conceived separately in related keys and may be recognized by the influences of Beethoven and Debussy, said Faegre about the selected work.

Faegre also praised the activism of Jill Robinson, MBE:

“This most horrendous practice has no place in a civilized world and the devotion of Jill Robinson and the AAF to this extraordinarily hideous practise is compelling for all who become aware of this cruelty and I could not be more proud to be a small part of this crusade,” said the composer who is also known for his own activism having sought public office on five occasions representing the Libertarian Party.

Animals Asia Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to rescuing Asiatic Black Bear (Moon Bears) from bear bile farms across Asia. This film is a tour of their Rescue Centre in Chengdu, China. The film will primarily be shown on their website.

On Top Of a Cloud Announces Mini-Series Consideration of 'Across the Universe'

On Top Of a Cloud has revealed today following correspondence yesterday with Nicole Sanzio, Creative Director and CEO of InDigi Music, that Deirdre Leah Faegre's most recent release, Lennon/McCartney's 'Across the Universe' has been forwarded by InDigi Music c/o Multi Music & Media Group to the producers of 'The Prisoner, ' a modern take on the 1960s British cult television series starring the late great Patrick McGoohan for musical consideration in the reinterpretation of the British 1960s cult hit series.

AMC and ITV have paired up to produce this wildly ambitious six-hour update starring Sir Ian McKellan as Number Two and Jim Caviezel as Number Six and shot on location in Namibia and South Africa. The series will air here in the U.S. in November on AMC, and on ITV in the UK at the start of 2010...

On Top Of a Cloud Owner and Founder, Leland Thomas Faegre who also arranged and produced the Beatles cover, was delighted by the decision. "Even if the music supervisors ultimately decide not to place Deirdre's version of the song in the year-end mini-series, it will not be because it fails to measure up to industry standards for production. Reputable publishers such as InDigi can't waste the time of music supervisors and producers by sending material that is not suited for the project," Faegre said.

"The criteria for music placement and synchronization in visual production is not science," the 55 year-old arranger-composer observed. "More often than not, what appears to be a good fit at first glance can easily be a size too large or too small."

'Across the Universe' was over a year in production at On Top Of a Cloud, Lake Tahoe. Deirdre's fifth single, 'Big Yellow Taxi' is due to be released May 11, 2009.
