Actor, singer Carlson Rowland releases “Disappear” featuring Taylor Castro, out now via PMA Records.

The soft sounding, relaxing summer time tune starts with slow ambient beach sounds and leads into a catchy chorus which is up-lifting.

“Disappear” is a good song for the end of summer with a wonderful collaboration from Castro who mixes well with the soothing sound.

This song was a wonderful follow up to Rowland’s first single “Game,” released earlier this year.
"With music, I have the ability to express who I am. My EP is going to be called ‘You Know Who You Are’ because it's written by me, and is about me and my interactions with people in my life. Songwriting gives me a way to express myself and my feelings that I can't find in acting," Rowland said.*

Unit animation director Jaime Maestro talks with Jesus Figueroa, @ThisFunktional of, about his latest project “Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs,” out on Digital and on Demand September 18, on Blu-ray and DVD September 22.

This outrageous fairy tale spoof starts as Snow White steals a pair of red shoes that transform her into a princess. Meanwhile, a witch’s curse turns seven brave princes into dwarfs, forcing them to seek out the princess, hoping for a kiss to break their spell. Together, they must face Snow White’s wicked stepmother – who will stop at nothing to get her precious shoes back – and, along the way, learn that true beauty lies within!
Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs was directed by Sung-ho Hong, and features character design and animation direction from Jin Kim, who worked on Disney’s animated classics Fantasia 2000, Frozen II, and Tangled.
