Shannon Noll talks bout Anthony Callea:

QUOTE
Shannon: Anthony is a great singer! He's just a ballad king, that's what he was built for. I couldn't see anthony rockin' about. 'The prayer' did for him what 'What bout me' did for me, its hard to say if that was what made him, you can never really tell.

He did carve that song to pieces! It's not about the songs popularity, its about how he delivered it! Idol opens up some amazing doors, but Anthony would have most likely made it on his own anyway. It's all about opportunities!

One Prize Rises, but Mo Goes
The Australian
By Iain Shedden
7-2-2006


ONE talented Australian act will be able to dine out on winning the inaugural Australian Music Prize, but the same cannot be said for anyone in the running for this year's Mo Awards.

It was announced yesterday that the annual prize-giving dinner for the country's oldest entertainment awards, scheduled to be held in Sydney on March 14, has been cancelled because of insufficient interest from ticket-buyers, sponsors and advertisers.

On March 8 the first winner of the Australian Music Prize will be announced at Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art. Vying for the $25,000 winner's cheque are some of the country's oldest rock talents, as well as some of the newest.

A short list of eight artists - including Brisbane veterans the Go-Betweens, Sydney's hot newcomers Wolfmother and singer-songwriter Ben Lee - was announced yesterday for the new award for artistic merit, modelled on Britain's successful Mercury Music Prize.

The final eight - the other bands in the running are the Drones, the Devastations, the Mess Hall, TZU and Tex, and Don and Charlie - are being judged on the basis of albums released during the past year.

The short list was drawn from 221 entrants from across Australia, including independent artists as well as those with major recording contracts.

Heavy rock trio Wolfmother burst on to the international rock arena during the past 12 months and won the inaugural Triple J album of the year award in December with its eponymous debut. Drummer Myles Heskett says the latest nomination is "a great honour. We didn't really have any expectations of how things were going to go with us, so the past year has been really fantastic."

Wolfmother leave tomorrow for a tour of the US and Europe.

Bondi bard Lee says that the last thing on his mind when he made his album, the ARIA Award-winning Awake is the New Sleep, was "making a record that would be in the top eight of any list. I was trying to make the best, most honest piece of work that I was capable of at that moment."

Winners of the 30th annual Mo Awards from the world of comedy, theatre, cabaret and music were to be announced during a dinner at Revesby Workers Club in Sydney. Instead, the results will be announced via the Mo Awards website. Those in the running for the top titles include Kylie Minogue, Anthony Callea and Reg Livermore.

Mo Awards chief executive Ken Laing says the awards, which came close to extinction last year owing to financial strain, will continue next year despite this latest setback.

"The integrity of the awards is still intact," Laing says. "There could have been a danger if we had gone ahead with the dinner and lost more money. I'm hopeful that a sponsor will come out of the woodwork for next year."

Bambi11
The Movie:


Heres the Website: http://www.comingsoo...ws.php?id=12933

I should start out by saying that I've never been a big fan of Bambi. Though I found the animation to be quite extraordinary, I always found the story itself to be boring and overly sentimental. Unfortunately, Bambi II is more of the same. The animation is absolutely stunning. The scenery is beautifully painted in the style of the first film. The character animation is as good as any you'll see on the big screen. However, the story itself is a bit slow, simple, and didn't do much for me.

I could be mistaken, but I think the characters in this film (set in the middle of the previous movie) act more like cartoon characters than animals. They all talk more, act sillier, and generally behave more human. Some examples of this are the new groundhog character and the new porcupine character.

Fortunately they also provide some much needed comic relief to spice things up. However, the movie's theme of the single dad spending time with his son is hit over your head so often and blatantly that it kind of wears thin. (On a side note, how many Disney animated films can you name where a character has two living parents? I can name 101 Dalmatians, Sleeping Beauty, and The Incredibles. It's strange that there aren't more.)

As for the voice talent, Patrick Stewart is about the only actor most people will recognize. He does a decent job bringing Bambi's father to life, but there's nothing unique about his role. Alexander Gould who plays Bambi also happened to voice Nemo in Finding Nemo. The music in the film is also decent.

You won't be humming the tunes after watching the film, but they do set the mood of the story well. Alison Krauss sings the opening song which stands out as the best of the lot. Also appearing are Martina McBride, Michelle Lewis, and Anthony Callea.

I sat my kids down in front of this film to see their reactions. Any time there was action or comedy on the screen, they were really interested. However, any time there was a lot of dialogue or sentimental moments, they became disinterested. So though it's not the best animated Disney film, it will still entertain kids. And at a relatively short 73 minutes of running time, it doesn't wear out its welcome.

http://www.moviesonl...enews_7185.html

BAMBI II premieres February 7 on Disney DVD, however audiences can get their advanced preview at this extraordinary film in a 11-minute selection of enchanting animated scenes by going to www.Bambi2DVD.com
http://disney.go.com...ndex_flash.html

Meticulously crafted over four years, BAMBI II captures the beauty, emotion, warmth and humor of Walt Disney�s immortal classic as a perfect complement to the 1942 original. The sweeping adventure welcomes back some of the most beloved characters in film history, including Bambi, Thumper and Flower, while also introducing Bambi�s father, The Great Prince.

BAMBI II is the heartwarming, coming-of-age story of a son�s courage and a father�s love. Following the tragic loss of his mother, the young fawn reunites with The Great Prince (voiced by Patrick Stewart, �X-Men� and �Star Trek: The Next Generation�), who must now teach Bambi (voiced by Alexander Gould, �Finding Nemo�) the ways of the forest. Their adventure together helps them overcome their initially awkward relationship, and allows father and son to discover in each other something neither expected: family.

Also joining the forest�s beloved cast of characters in BAMBI II are Thumper�s rambunctious sisters, and Bambi�s rival, Ronno. Original and new characters combine to forge an inspiring story filled with strong messages of family, discovery, faith, courage, trust and inner strength.

Animated in the breathtaking style of the original classic, BAMBI II also embraces its Disney heritage with captivating new songs performed by Martina McBride, recipient of five Country Music Association Awards including three consecutive �Female Vocalist of the Year� honors; multiple Grammy award winner Alison Krauss, and burgeoning new talent Anthony Callea.

Mtv Awards And Aria

http://img87.imagesh...5/callea0vi.jpg

Aria's

Anthony Callea is another artist that popped his ARIA cherry by winning the Highest Selling Single award for 'The Prayer' - which he performed anxiously on the night. He said, "I think tonight was the most nervous I've ever been to sing that song. Sometimes nerves can sort of take over but I sort of tried to control them as much as possible tonight.

I took a deep breath at the end - it was just like 'yes it's over'. The 2004 Australian Idol runner up also spoke about the show that catapulted him to fame and how he thinks that it's still relevant. He said, "It's a great launching pad for artists out there. People can bag it; people can say what they want. What's the difference coming from a radio competition or a television soapie?

So it's just another way of getting out there. I started singing at the age of 5, I started gigging at the age of 15 & 16 so it's not like one day I sort of woke up and decided to audition and thought, you know, maybe I can sing. So it's something that I've been wanting to do for many years now and I just saw that as an opportunity and I think you'd be stupid not to take it."

Mtv

*2004 Australian Idol runner up Anthony Callea was clearly chuffed with the news that his debut single 'The Prayer' is now the highest-selling Australian single of all time. He was even happier to talk about his debut album and its producer Brian Jones.

He said, "He's great to work with and he really guides you through the whole recording process and he makes you feel very comfortable and he gets the best result out of you as well so that's really cool." Of the album he said, "The album's a big mix - there's a few power ballads on there and there's a few songs on there which are the same sort of genre as 'The Prayer' and there's pop tracks on there too so it's a bit of a mixture.

From the word go with the album I've had a lot of an input in that I've chosen all the songs on there and I've co-written a couple. I've had a say in virtually everything that's happening so it's cool."

The Age
By Dewi Cooke
22-1-2006


The Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton Relay will enter the final leg of a global tour on Wednesday with the start of a 21,500-kilometre journey around Australia.

Beginning in Penrith, western Sydney, the baton will be carried to Parramatta by members of the public and sporting identities including cricketer Steve Waugh and former Commonwealth Games swimming champion Karen Moras-Stephenson.

Other celebrities who will carry the baton include Jamie Durie, Rove McManus, Dawn Fraser, Nicole Livingstone and Anthony Callea.


The baton will arrive in Australia on Tuesday after a week's tour of New Zealand. It will travel from Sydney to Newcastle and along the east coast of Queensland. It reaches Victoria on February 16.

The baton is fitted with a global positioning system, so its progress can be traced on the internet. A video link will also transmit key moments.

On February 2, the baton, designed by Melbourne firm Charlwood Design, heads west to the mining town of Mount Isa and then on to Alice Springs. It will then be carried on the Ghan railway to arrive in Katherine on February 7. Next it rides the Ghan to Darwin, takes in the northern tip of the country and heads down the coast of Western Australia to Perth, Fremantle, Mandurah and Margaret River.

On February 12, it will arrive in Adelaide and be taken through the Adelaide Hills before reaching Mildura on February 16. But it leaves the state on February 23 at Wodonga and tours the ACT before returning along Victoria's eastern coast on February 28.

On March 10, it will arrive in Hobart. It finally returns to Victoria on March 13.

From Port Melbourne and on through Box Hill and Nunawading, the baton's final stop will be the MCG on March 15.

THE AGE COMMONWEALTH GAMES PHOTO EXHIBITION

WITH just over 50 days to go to the Commonwealth Games The Age tomorrow launches a fascinating photographic exhibition in the Atrium at Federation Square. "The Age of Commonwealth Games" exhibition features 80 stunning photographs drawn from The Age's photographic collection which depict some of the great sporting moments involving Australian teams since the first Games in 1930.

Sony Bmg Sings Apple's Itunes
By Randolph Ramsay, CNET.com.au
18-1-2006


Sony BMG has finally jumped on the iTunes bandwagon, with the music giant today confirming it had added its roster of artists to Apple's Australian on-line music store.

Sony BMG was the only major label not on board when Apple launched the Australian version of iTunes on 25 October 2005. At the time, Apple iTunes vice-president Eddy Cue declined to disclose the reasons behind Sony's absence, but did say licensing negotiations were still ongoing.

In a statement released today, Cue said the addition of Sony BMG would bring iTunes fans "a wide range of great local and international artists". Sony BMG Australia and New Zealand CEO Denis Handlin said his company was "delighted" at joining iTunes Australia. "There is a great opportunity for digital music to explode in 2006 and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with iTunes," Handlin said.

Sony BMG's inclusion will add music and videos from artists such as Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, the Foo Fighters, Destiny's Child, Franz Ferdinand, Oasis, The Strokes, Kelly Clarkson, Bruce Springsteen, Jamiroquai, Eurythmics and Shakira.

Australian artists on Sony's roster includes Shannon Noll, Anthony Callea, Human Nature, Rogue Traders, Pete Murray, John Farnham, Alex Lloyd and Delta Goodrem.
The iTunes Music Store in Australia now features over one million songs at AU$1.69 each, 3,000 music videos for AU$3.39 each, short films from Academy-Award winning Pixar Animation Studios, 11,000 audiobooks and 25,000 Podcasts.

AUSSIE EARNERS

http://www.poprepublic.tv/popjan06.pdf

Aussie acts had reason to cheer in 2005, as they dominated the local charts.

Missy Higgins took out the #1 slot on the end of year ARIA albums chart. 'The Sound Of White' has enjoyed a phenomenal year, reaching 8 x platinum sales.

However, the success story of the year was Anthony Callea. Not only did 'The Prayer' finish up as the #1 ARIA single of the year, the soaring ballad became the top selling Aussie single of all time.

Meanwhile, Kylie Minogue was the year's #1 most broadcast artist on Aussie radio & television. This is the 3rd time in the past 5 years that we couldn't get the pop survivor out of our head.

Shannon Noll talks about the Idol tag, life after Idol, his forthcoming tour and his 2nd album.


The likes of Cosima De Vito, Chanel Cole and Paulini vied with the Series One winner Guy Sebastian and Series Two runner-up ANTHONY CALLEA for a chance to renew old acquaintences and hopefully snag some TV air time. (This comment refers to the ARIAs).

Noll believes both he and CALLEA, who had the best-selling single of last year with The Prayer, have in some ways surpassed the success of their series' winners simply because they are prepared to put in the hard work,

Shannon says, "I toured extensively across the country, nearly 100 shows last year (should that be 2004-5?) off the back of the first single. And I think ANTHONY did the same."
