Selene Luna, Nadya Ginsburg & Graham Colton
October 23, 2011 – We have a packed show this Sunday with the wickedly hilarious Selene Luna and Nadya Ginsburg. The girls will be live in the studio and bringing with them their brilliant sense of humor and comedy stylings (if you haven’t yet, check out their Youtube video Madonna and Child below). Also calling in to talk about his new tour and EP is audience favorite Graham Colton.
Selene Luna – At 3’10”, Selene Luna is a small package with a very big presence. A veteran of the stage and screen, Selene cut her teeth performing in clubs and art venues, and quickly became a darling of Hollywood’s underground scene. An original member of the Velvet Hammer Burlesque, Luna tours internationally and performs regularly with burlesque idol Dita Von Teese. Luna is probably best known for her role in Lionsgate’s feature, “My Bloody Valentine 3D”, and her role as Margaret Cho‘s assistant in Vh1’s “The Cho Show” – a performance that landed her a nomination for MTV LOGO’s NewNowNext: Brink of Fame: Comic Award. Luna’s stand-up comedy has led her to work alongside comedy legends Roseanne Barr, Robin Williams and Garret Morris.
Nadya Ginsburg – Nadya Ginsburg is most well known for her spot on impressions of Madonna and Cher, but has has been called “the woman of a thousand voices,” Roseanne Barr calls her “brilliant” Perez Hilton calls her a “genius” and Al Roker just thinks “She rules”. Her career as an actress/comedienne encompasses the NYC and LA stage, network television, feature film and the new world of Internet Comedy. She has been featured in The New York Times, London’s Q Magazine, Heeb Magazine, The Village Voice, Time Out New York, In Style Magazine, New York Magazine and Time Out Tel Aviv. Nadya honed her talent for creating off beat original characters and impressions in the alternative comedy scene in NYC at venues such as Luna Lounge, Catch A Rising Star and Carloline’s Comedy Club. She was brought to LA by to be a series regular on the WB sketch comedy series HYPE, and has written for and been featured on shows on E, Comedy Central, VH1, MTV, NBC and Lifetime Television. As a voice over artist, she has lent her talents to everything from Japanimation films to MTV animated series to national commercials and radio spots. Currently writing jokes for comedy legend Joan Rivers on her hit E show “Fashion Police,” she also co-wrote and co-starred in a webisode series produced by Roseanne Barr, worked with Parker Posey in the feature film “Adam & Steve” and is the co creator and star of the international cult webisode series “The Worm.” Nadya’s multi character Village Voice Choice show “Madonnalogues” just finished a national tour to sold out crowds and her Lady Gaga parody “Al Roker Face” garnered her an interview on the Today Show with Al Roker and Meredith Viera, where her appearance won MSNBC’s “Moment Of The Week” viewer poll by a landslide.

OKLAHOMA CITY (September 29, 2011) — Singer-songwriter Graham Colton will celebrate the release of Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 on October 18, 2011 by launching the Go Natural tour, a two-month jaunt across the Southeastern United States that will feature stripped down live performances, more intimate fan interaction and a powerful environmental message. Instead of crossing the country in a tour van burning dirty diesel fuel, Colton will embark in a vehicle that runs on compressed natural gas (CNG).
CNG produces up to 90 percent fewer particle emissions than conventional fuels including gasoline, and is considered one of the cleanest fuels on the planet. It also costs about 50 percent less than the price of gasoline and is nearly one-third the price of diesel.
The Go Natural tour is engineered to draw awareness to the CNGnow movement, an effort to educate the public about the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas vehicle technology. Throughout Go Natural, Colton will document his experience driving a CNG vehicle, reporting back with video blogs, tour diary entries and road reports via Facebook, Twitter and other platforms, including his website. He will also be the first featured contributor on CNGnow.com, a social network and information hub for people who drive CNG vehicles, or are interested in learning more about this cleaner and more affordable alternative fuel that is available in an increasing number of cities nationwide.
In addition to learning more about CNG vehicles, fans who visit Colton’s page on CNGnow.com will receive access to an exclusive, previously unreleased MP3 download from the artist. Fans can also sign up to join Colton and the movement as an advocate for CNG.
“This tour hits very close to home for me because natural gas is a fuel that’s produced in my home state of Oklahoma,” Colton said. “Driving a CNG vehicle gives me an opportunity to do my part in limiting my eco-footprint, as well as raise awareness about American dependence on foreign resources and oil. By educating people along the tour, I hope to show my fans just how detrimental our reliance on foreign oil is, and how making the switch to compressed natural gas can not only help us end that reliance, but also make a powerful, positive impact in the battle to curb carbon emissions.”
Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 will feature all of the material from Colton’s acclaimed sophomore LP Pacific Coast Eyes as well as alternate versions of the title track, “1981” and “Everything You Are.” In addition, the release will include three brand new songs completed just last month. Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 will be available for $5.99 via iTunes and http://grahamcolton.com.
