Terrance Quaites, also known as the Artist "TQ" has been making music for most of his life. At a certain point in every artists career there comes a time to use what you've learned to create your own. That opportunity for TQ is right here right now. Kado Records is the name of the partnership between Mrs. Laura Zatezalo of New Orleans and TQ. "I think the best teams are made by people who have opposite strengths and weaknesses and that's me and Laura. We make a good team." explains TQ.

Kado's first release of 2011 is new artist JMidd out of Atlanta, GA. His new single is called "Up Up and Away" and will be available next week on iTunes and most other online stores. The song features TQ on the second verse and is the unofficial theme song for NBA superstar Dwight Howard and his charity "Shooting Stars". "JMidd is a different kind of artist" says Laura or "Mrs. Z" as everyone around the label calls her, "He wants to line himself up with positivity. He keeps his music clean and his subject matter is always something that you wouldn't mind your kids listening to. Dwight's charity is the perfect partner for JMidd and this new single." A large portion of the proceeds for the new single goes directly to Shooting Stars for the betterment of inner city youth in America.

"I'm interested in building the next great Indie label here" explains TQ. "I think we have the right people and the right resources to ensure that this company puts out great music from great artists for years to come. That's my goal. That's my reason for getting down with this. There's a new music industry in 2011. One that is different from the past but not so hard to understand... Kado Records understands. We're ready to do great things."

"Up Up and Away" is the new single from Kado Records recording artist "JMidd" featuring TQ dropping next Tuesday April 26th, 2011. Check out www.KadoRecords.com for news and updates on this exciting new artist and label.
