More than just a movie, SNO BABIES is a call to action – a reminder that the drug epidemic remains a crisis, exacerbated by the COVID pandemic, and that through the power of our networks and communities we can save lives
SNO BABIES depicts the grim realities of addiction and its effects on a middle-class suburban town. Kristen and Hannah are best friends–smart, likable and college-bound– and also addicted to heroin. The pair of seemingly unlikely addicts spiral down a path of destruction, hiding their secret from well-meaning but busy parents behind pink bedrooms and school uniforms SNO BABIES shows how easy it can be to both miss and hide the signs of addiction. The film, produced by Allen Kovac, Mike Walsh and Michael Lombardi, stars Katie Kelly (Game of Silence), Paola Andino (Queen of the South), Michael Lombardi (Rescue Me) and Shannan Wilson (Elementary).
Every facet of this project raises money for The Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation (GRI), the first and only national community foundation dedicated to funding support services for people in early recovery from substance use disorders. Every sale and stream of the Sno Babies soundtrack (including “Heroin(e)”) and of the film helps someone in recovery. Other artists with songs in the soundtrack include labelmates Sixx:A.M., Escape The Fate, Bad Wolves and From Ashes To New among others
“Heroin(e)” is an emotional song lyrically, touching on the issues of substance abuse, something lead singer Amanda Lyberg knows far too much about. “I wrote this song because I lived this story. My parents struggled with substance abuse my entire life with one surviving it and the other not,” Amanda continues, ”It honestly means the world to me that this song is part of the Sno Babies film. We are all screaming the same message: Awareness is needed! Recovery is real!” The film and music video’s director, Bridget Smith, says of the connection “The song speaks to Kristen’s inner journey when she decides she must save herself and she’s not responsible to save her friend from her addiction.”
Eva Under Fire got their start five years ago and instantly began cutting their teeth in the underground rock scene, building an enthusiastic fanbase the old-fashioned way. However, the band’s trajectory shifted toward the stratosphere when they sent an unsolicited demo to Better Noise Music, who recognized the band’s hybrid of rock, metal, pop, and classic rock as something wholly unique. The band has spent the past two years working on their upcoming album, which is set to be their most ambitious and fully realized release to date. “We really wanted to challenge ourselves with this record and focus on melodies and writing the best material that we could come up with,” Amanda explains. “We really came up with the best of the best when it came to our songwriting. Some songs are fun, others are more emotional.”

BMG are proud to announce the worldwide release of the debut album Smith/Kotzen by Adrian Smith and Richie Kotzen on March 26.
Running is the third single from the upcoming album and follows on from
Taking My Chances & Scars
Check it out here smith-kotzen.lnk.to/albumPR
Adrian says of the song, “It’s a really cool sort of driving track, one of the heavier ones on the album and we’re excited to get it out there ahead of the album release. We’ve both been thrilled by the reaction to our music so far and are very much looking forward to meeting up again as soon as we can, to write some more songs together.”
Richie adds, “Running was the first song Adrian and I worked on. Adrian came in with that heavy verse riff which lead me to conjuring up what lives as our chorus to the composition. Running is surely one of my top three favourites on the Smith/Kotzen album and I really look forward to playing this one live”.
As well as the duo co-writing, co-producing and sharing guitars and vocals, Richie also plays bass and drums on the track.
With the two previous singles Taking My Chances and cars having been enthusiastically welcomed by fans and media alike, Running is the perfect final choice ahead of the eponymous album release on March 26 to showcase the astonishing breadth of talent and musical diversity between this unique pairing of two of rock’s most respected artists.

The bands drummer, Hugo Rumore comments, “The recording process for The Wisdom of Mountains with Chris (Blancato) was interesting, because he saw a lot of potential for the song – and we spent a long time workshopping to really define the parts and make sure that the drums were really supporting the song in the best way that they could. We spent a lot of time on small details, which really completes the song, in my opinion!!”
