Review LOS ANGELES, CA - 8/22/07 - (AP) The new Michael J Downey and the World single, "america" has debuted the FMQB Adult Contemporary radio charts as the 1 Most-Added single across the USA for the week of 8/22/07. This week, "america" was added to the playlists of more radio stations than any other AC single on the FMQB charts, including Gwen Stephani, Maroon 5, and others. --AP Wire Product Description Michael J Downey and The World: California Based Singer/Songwriter and Former Lead Guitarist for Femme Fatale is Building Powerful Cultural and Musical Bridges between `America' and Korea and Japan Thursday July 12, 4:27 pm ET Band Has Toured Extensively over the Past Year in Asia LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Downey's latest contribution to that philosophy is his new, ripe for AC radio recording america, which features the four songs from Bridge Of No Return (including "Hajimemashite," which means "It's nice to meet you for the first time"), and america, as well as the perfect combination of a lush love song ("In Love Again"), a heartbreaker ("Wish"), a gritty rocker about what we can all learn from "History" and the cutting edge pop/rock fun song "Fly Away." The Bridge songs were produced by David Longoria (Sting, U2) and the newer tracks by Robert Eibach and Downey himself at the helm. His current touring band includes keyboardist Christina Rasch (Ringo Starr, John Tesh) and bassist Jessica Fagre--both of whom also do extensive USO tours. The Bridge concept extends into the artist's overall mission with his recordings, performances and extra-musical activities, which is to create a vibrant and mutually beneficial way for Americans and Asians to interact. After returning from his first tour of Japan a year and a half ago, he was motivated to start hashi.org, a California NPO dedicated to promoting unique cultural exchange opportunities between Asia and America.
