Solaris Entertainment is pleased to announce our new partner in Music. Moxie Records operates out of Los Angeles and is a prominent member of the entertainment community. Led by Jamie Gruttemeyer, they bring finesse, style, and a vibe that can only be defined as intimately familiar with the fabric of modern and popular music. They bring so much to Solaris just because they are born and bred from the west coast music movement. We feel now we are a completely formed Sony Indie label having Moxie with us.
You can expect bigger and better results from us all because of this new partnership. We promise big things to come and more new music releases from the freshest, new voices the west coast has to offer.
National Lampoon, Inc. named Solaris Entertainment Studio as the exclusive, worldwide distribution and development partner.

Solaris has also released for the first time, more than 25 years of the world-famous National Lampoon Magazines in digital format available on Kindle and iBooks. Production on the new television series will begin in Spring 2021.
On August 17 several Solaris Entertainment Artists rallied around Charles Hedgepath, a Principal Partner at Solaris, and his request to come help bring awareness to this young National Non-Profit Org, focused entirely on music and its power to heal, create, perform, compose, and lift. Rich Owen unknowingly became a great example for the organization while during a Fox News interview the organization Director who had just finished his talk, waited to hear Rich. Rich was asked why he was here and he said "I flew in from my home in Colorado to support this mission because I have much to be grateful for. I served in the Air Force, and retired as a Major after 22 years. I began playing music in my teens but had to put it aside once I enlisted. I finished college while serving and received my commission shortly after.
Just after my retirement, my wife remembered how much I loved playing my guitar. She surprised me on my birthday with one and I’ve been playing ever since. Now, because of music, I'm able to speak to millions through my lyrics, and it’s awesome. Music has given me a voice I could have never had without it. I am here as a living example of what a little determination can mean to a veteran whether or not they suffer with any of the posttraumatic mental health issues. More importantly, it’s what music will accomplish should any one of the veterans we reach desires an opportunity to share their voice as I did
Soldier's. Song's, and Voices has programs to assist all veterans interested in working with or in the music industry. They encourage all to write their stories and have songwriters who will help the veteran develop music from those very stories which in itself is a process of healing. If you want to learn to play music but can't really afford the cost just to get an instrument, they can provide you with an instrument as well. They make a difference, and now I can have a much; larger footprint in this community. I can't describe the joy I feel when I play and veterans are in the audience. There is no mistaking the reaction those who do struggle have when I play for them. It really presents a physical change to manifest, which is seen and heard clearly after I'm done. I know this first hand because I always have a some who stay for the meet and greet and they tell me how much they enjoyed the show, and surprisingly feel much better as a result." Rich Owen said.
Also, a big thanks to Cravin' Melon, The Jeff Sipe Trio, Morgan Riley, and The Bad Popes. It was a tremendous night of great music, and messages, announcing the presence of Soldiers', Song's, and Voice's in South Carolina. For more information simply go to https://www.soldiersongsandvoices.com/
