AOL’s Daily Finance debuts a commercial from Singer Songwriter Samantha Murphy about Limelight, a simple way for artists to clear any cover song in the world. Limelight‘s full press release is below.

We are very excited about the launch and debut of our new Limelight educational video with Internet pioneer and indie singer-songwriter Samantha Murphy (The Highway Girl). Samantha has written, produced and starred in this 2 minute and 19 second long video highlighting the recording of her new single, an amazing cover of the classic Johnny Cash song “Ring of Fire”. It also shows Samantha using Limelight to clear the necessary mechanical license for this song for her upcoming release.

Samantha is the rare combination of accomplished musician, technology advocate and champion for artists and songwriters. She has produced not only a compelling video that highlights Limelight’s ease-of-use, but has also delivered a memorable version of Johnny Cash’s classic Ring of Fire. We are extremely grateful for her talents, passion and vision for this incredible song. Ring of Fire is the first single from Samantha’s new album Some Assembly Required and will be available on September 15.

We hope that you enjoy it. For more about Samantha / The Highway Girl check out www.samanthamurphy.com and www.thehighwaygirl.com.

Do Geeks Rock? Yes!Every once in awhile a cool event comes along and we wanna be involved! That’s why for the second year we’re proud to be media sponsors of Silicon Valley Rocks. Benefiting Music in Schools Today (MuST), SV Rocks is 7 bands comprised of at least one exec from the tech community.

This week we’re dusting off our interview and live performance with Australia’s The Devoted Few.

I stumbled across this band when we were planning a trip Down Under and I have to say I’m completely blown away by them. The Devoted Few’s debut album, “Baby, You’re a Vampire” Kicks ass. It was mixed by the same guy who did Kings of Leon. You’ve gotta hear it and buy it!

Also check out our interview with the band’s manager, Stuart Coupe on our Industry Experts pages.
