Hey all! how are you? I hope that this edition of the Leap Dog Music
Newsletter finds you all happy and well!! So, it's September already!
Somebody want to tell me where the hell the summer went??? Sheesh!! I
never even made it to the Jersey shore, yet again...but I had a great
summer anyway and I hope you all did too!! Traveled a bit, and ended
it this past weekend in CT attempting to see a Night Ranger show, and
while i didn't make the show (that My friend Kurt keeps rubbing in
was SOOOO AWESOME! Ya big jerk!! :-) ), I did win a few buck at
Foxwoods Casino, so the weekend ended up on a nice note! So lets get
to the business at hand...theres a whole lot to report this month so
we'll get through this quick!

John Taglieri signs Management Deal with Ego Trip Entertaiment!!
I have signed a new management deal with Dave Tedder and Ego Trip
Entertainment! I've been working with Dave for about 1 1/2 years
already and we have had a great relationship so far. We decided to
make it official and signed the contract this past month. Dave has
been around the industry for many years, working for both major and
indie record labels and doing publicity both on staff for labels and
through his own company, Ego Trip Entertainment/Manipulation
Marketing. He knows the in's and out's of the industry and is very
tied into the Melodic Rock scene. We have worked very well together
so far in the last 18 months and making it official will now push us
both to make things happen on an even bigger scale...that way we both
make the big $$$$!!! Anyone who wants to contact Dave can do so at
Dave@e... and all his contact info is on the homepage of
the website.

ASCAP Awards John Taglieri the ASCAPlu$ Songwriting Award!
Yep! For the second year in a row, I have been awarded the
prestigious ASCAP ASCAPlu$ Award for songwriting. This award is given
out for performers who do a lot thoughout the year in the business,
but not necessarily in venues or areas that are normally surveyed by
ASCAP for royalty payments. After submitting my last years worth of
work, gigs and press, ASCAP granted me this award again. It's not
given out easily or to many people, so it's a truly great honor to
recieve it! Wins the 2001/2002 Golden Web award!
Also for the second straight year, has been awarded
the Golded Web Award Presented by The International Association of
Web Masters and Designers. The award and is presented to those sites
whose web design, originality and content have achieved levels of
excellence deserving of recognition. So once again, I need to send
HUGE THANKS AND KUDOS out to my webmaster, Brian DeSantis, who also
happens to be the bass player in the JT band, for making a site to be proud of!!! set to launch!!
Hey!! Look at this! is set to launch this coming
weekend, on Saturday, September 8th! Now not only will you be able to
get to my site through, but now you can just simply
type in my name and...viola! You'll be on the official John Taglieri
website! There's going to be a new look to the site and some new
features also, so reset those bookmarks to the new address!
LeapDogMusic will also always still work, so you need not change it
if you don't want to!

Leap Dog Music & Branching out to Website Design!
Leap Dog Music and the website attached to it, has
been working as a web based publicity/PR firm for the better part of
2 years now, focusing mainly on the Press for my career. Well, now as
another added feature, Leap Dog Music will be offering website
design!! Working along with my Award winning webmaster, Brian
DeSantis, we will be taking on clients to design their websites. We
know the budgets that musicians are on, so we will be affordable to
all and willing to work within anyones budget to get the job done. We
already have a few clients both in and out of the music business. So
if you know anyone who needs design for their site, please let them
know about us and we'll do our best to make their website kick ass!

New Merchandise in the Leap Dog Music Store!!!
If you have been waiting for the new merchandise to get here, wait no
more!! There are now a few new shirts, baseball caps, bucket hats,
tote bags, and boxer shorts that you can order directly from the Leap
Dog Store. Just go to the website and click on the merchandise page
and click the link for the store at the top. You can order anything
you want. And, if you want a certain item, but want either a John
Taglieri or Leap Dog logo on it and it has the other, email me and
I'll arrange to have the logo you want put on the merchandise!

Band Rehearsing for New Album!!
Yes, we've talked about this already, but i have to send some props
out to the boys in my band...these guys have been working their
collective asses off all summer to get ready for the new album and
the new songs sound amazing! We've added Carlos Rodriguez on bass for
about half the album and between he and Brian, the bass parts are
slammin'!! We have also confirmed Randy Jackson from Zebra to be
playing guitar on the title track, "True Believer", and Rik Emmett to
be playing guitar on our cover of his own song, "Bang On"!! Let me
tell you what an honor it will be to be playing with two of my
biggest influences as a guitarist and singer growing up. I can't

Although we are down from gigging right now due to the album, we
always entertain any offer, so just email my manager Dave Tedder at
Ego Trip Entertainment, or my agent David Neilon at Rising Star
Promotions, if you are interested in booking me either as a solo or
with the full band. Their emails are Dave@e... and

Also, make sure you stop by the fan club page to see what they have
going on! Carissa always has something cooking and good stuff to
win!! If you want to join the fan club, or get your friends into it,
just email Carissa at JohnTcutie1@a... and she'll set you up!

Well, thats about it for this month. Thanks to all of you who
faithfully read this letter and email me every month. I love that
part of my career...talking to everyone. Your support makes what I do
worth every second of what I have to deal with professionally...and
it's not always a smooth ride! But every month I get the boost I need
just from your feedback and support. Thanks again...'cause I could
never do this without all of you! Take care and I'll see you next
month...when we start to tease you with some samples from the
upcoming album!!

Take Care & God Bless!
John Taglieri
