Salt Lake City, Utah 1 November 2008 - PositiveMusicandDownloads.com, a new premier online site for ordering CDs and downloading songs that emphasize positive music, announced today it will promote and launch Love Like That, the first CD released by Utah tenor, Daniel Beck, later this month.

Beck, who has performed and acted in films, concerts and on stage for the past 16 years, “is one of Utah’s best kept secrets,” according to Greg Hansen, director of music for PositiveMusicandDownloads.com. “He has a Josh Groban-like range and appeal,” said Hansen. “When people hear him sing they are going to be amazed.”

Love Like That, produced by well-known Utah performer and composer Kenneth Cope, includes 10 songs – five original tunes by Cope and several other song writers as well as popular favorites like The Impossible Dream and Homeward Bound. The music is a collection of intensely moving music consisting of powerful ballads and upbeat tunes with an adult contemporary sound. The title song Love Like That, is a new original piece written by Tyler Castleton and Staci Peters.

A launch release concert is planned:

November 25th
Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
138 West 300 South
Salt Lake City, UT
Purchase Tickets at ArtTix

According to Hansen, Beck will be accompanied by a string orchestra and a live band. Concert guests are asked to bring blankets, gloves, coats, hats and other clothing items that will be donated to The Road Home. Also, $1 from the sale of each Love Like That CD through Christmas will be donated to The Road Home. Tickets are available at Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall and Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center ticket offices and at selected ArtTix outlets. Or call 355-ARTS (2787) or toll-free 1-888-451-ARTS (2787).

Beck has played major roles in several musicals such as The Scarlett Pimpernel at the Hale Centre Theater and Oklahoma at Salt Lake Community College. He has also starred in several DVD productions featuring adaptations of scripture stories known as the Liken the Scripture series, created by Lightstone Pictures. He performs a duet with popular Utah singing artist Jessie Clark Funk on her current album Everything Speaks His Name and has solo tracks on two Especially for Youth CDs – the 2007 release Purity in Power and the 2008 release Steady and Sure.

Beck said when he and Cope met in 2006 to discuss his first CD “the very album that’s being released is the one we both envisioned. We were on the same page at our first lunch meeting.”

PositiveMusicandDownloads.com is a new online sales and distribution company. It was launched to promote music that embraces positive lyrics and tunes. While positive music can be found in many musical styles – from blue grass to pop and rock – according to Hansen, “by creating a new category that leaves no doubt about the content of the words and the music being played, we hope it will be hub for artists and music listeners to celebrate this brand of music.”
