ZARAGOZA Reinvigorates the Holidays with “Gypsy Christmas”

81NTt7kKOKL. SS500

LA Based Singer / Songwriter ZARAGOZA has released his refreshingly minimalist official music video for his new single, “Gypsy Christmas.” Originally premiered on mxdwn, “Gypsy Christmas” is the artist’s first original release since his Billboard charting debut EP, Child of The Sun.

“Christmas has always been my favorite Holiday and the modern commercialism of it can make it stressful which is the opposite of what its about. This song is about getting away from that modern commercialism.” – ZARAGOZA

“Thanksgiving’s over and if you’ve turned on your car radio, entered a department store, or watched a minute of network television, you’ll know it’s officially Christmastime. If you already need a break from the cliche overload of ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ and ‘Last Christmas,’ we have the perfect song for your holiday playlist. Today, we’re excited to premiere the new single from Zaragoza called ‘Gypsy Christmas.’” – Matt Matasci – mxdwn

“Instead of screaming about what’s wrong in the world, I’m singing about what’s right,” says Zaragoza. For audiences who have only witnessed his ferocious performances with the Hollywood-based metal band Sinicle, the concept of Zaragoza performing acoustically based music as a singer-songwriter might seem a complete departure. “It’s a side of my artistry that hasn’t been expressed,” Zaragoza says. “It was a natural progression.”

Zaragoza’s newest songs are illuminated in vivid detail on his debut solo EP, Child of the Sun. While the tracks include full production arrangements with drums and bass, two of the songs are presented in their most essential forms, with only guitar and Zaragoza’s compelling vocals.

With his new music, Zaragoza retains the intensity of a rock performer as he approaches the acoustic guitar percussively, highlighting harmonics and tapping techniques. “I acknowledge these roots, but the sound allows me to go deeper into a softer, acoustic realm,” he explains.

As a solo artist, he now has the freedom as a songwriter to create a quantity of songs, and then select the best ideas to complete, record and perform. Initially, he allows the lyrics and melodic ideas to exist only in his imagination. “Then it’s like a sling shot – I head back to my guitar and boom – the song is written.”

Working with Southern California- based producer Mikal Reid, whose resume includes artists like Mick Jagger and Ben Harper, the two tracked in Reid’s studio in the hills above the city, in what is Zaragoza describes as “An all wooden room. It’s like recording inside of an acoustic guitar.”

Originally from Reno, NV, Zaragoza was born to music. His late father, a formidable harmonica player, was a front man for local blues bands. Jamming in the garage until all hours was a family tradition. “My father instilled in me how important it is to play from the soul,” Zaragoza recalls. “When I picked up the guitar we played together with a musical relationship.”

Zaragoza formed the band Sinicle, who after building a substantial following with an impressive amount of regional performances, moved together to Hollywood, CA to attend Musicians Institute and launch a recording and touring career that has included concerts and festivals nationwide, bolstered by a notable series of albums.

With his evolution into an acoustically based singer-songwriter, Zaragoza notes that his life experiences guide the themes of his new songs, especially the transforming warmth of a deeply loving relationship. “We’re in a cultural cycle,” he concludes. “The backlash is to go back to the basics: Love is the most basic human need. My music is not about me, it’s about us.”

BLACK HEART SAINTS Releases Official Music Video For Cover of ROBERT PALMER’s “Addicted to Love”

71ckHlQjP7L. SS500

 Austin, TX based Rock Band BLACK HEART SAINTS has released the official music video for their cover of the 1986 ROBERT PALMER hit single, “Addicted to Love.”

The song and its accompanying music video mark the third part of what fans are calling the “Misery Quadrilogy.” Best watched back-to-back, the band’s music videos follow the fearsome foursome across a single day — starting from on the road in the Texas Hill Country to the recording studio. Along the way, drug-induced mayhem seemingly stands in the way of the band making it to their gig later that evening.

The video for “Addicted to Love” pays tribute to PALMER’s original video, which famously featured a band of female models. BLACK HEART SAINTS’ version tells the tale of a band experiencing LSD-like flashbacks while in a guitar shop. Watch as a mysterious shop owner transforms into Palmer himself, as the band joins in to create a hard-rocking homage to one of 1986’s biggest hits.

Player

” ‘Addicted to Love’ has been long overdue for a remake. We’re taking some huge risks even attempting this song, and as our fans know, we don’t shy away from the unconventional. ” – BLACK HEART SAINTS

Quickly conquering some of the biggest stages and festivals in the United States, Black Heart Saints has built an impressive resume, and has been recognized as one of the nation’s top emerging rock acts:

The band also went back to the studio to record a string of upcoming singles produced by Omar Vallejo at Austin’s renowned 512 Studios.

After debuting their first official music video for the hit single “Touch The Sky” on MTVVEVO, and YouTube, Black Heart Saints is poised to launch a memorable international career with ambitions to dominate stages across the globe. Half-way through 2016, the band gained nationwide airplay on Sirius XM’s Octane and Faction channels.

In 2017, the band received two major accolades: Black Heart Saints was chosen as Austin Music Foundation’s Artist of the Month, and received a spot in the top 10 Best New Bands in Austin Chronicle’s Austin Music Awards for 2016-2017.

The band’s first full-length release –ALIVE– was soon followed by the “Road to Sturgis Tour 2017,” which put Black Heart Saints’ charismatic live performance to the test when the band took the stage at the world-renowned motorcycle rally, attended by over 500,000 bikers from all around the globe.

Foreshadowing a successful 2018, Black Heart Saints embarked on an extensive tour to the West Coast beginning in January, which included a highlight performance at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood, California. The band plans to return to the studio and launch another USA tour in summer of 2018.

player

“The musical base of Christine came from our bass player and former drummer, then later sprinkled with each band member’s creative add-ons. It’s a story about a man’s admiration of his Queen. Loving everything about the way she moves, what she wears to her silhouette. It was important to us that in the song’s creation we musically set a mood that made sense, without losing the vibe. Once the song began to take shape-it took no time to arrange and pencil the story. Christine is the sunny side of the cat and mouse game played by Kings and the ever seductive Queens.” – COOZABLACK

Nashville based Punk / Metal Band DIGITAL BRAINS has released the lyric video for their new single, “The Itch,” out now via Go Long Entertainment.

Player

“We won’t say who this happened to, but, we all like the bad girls. Face it, they’re fun. Girls, you like the bad guys too. You know, when there’s that person you know is no good for you, but it’s so right….at least the sex is anyway? So right, you get “The Itch” to go back, even when you know you shouldn’t because you’re addicted to them. You get “The Itch” to go back, because something about the way the treat you like shit keeps you hooked. Unfortunately, sometimes the bad girls (or boys) give you more than you bargained for. When “The Itch” sends you to the doctor, well, its a bitch.” – ADAM SHOENFELD (Vocals)

ADAM SHOENFELD

Lead guitarist and singer of Digital Brains is also part of the 70’s Rock inspired duo SunKat.

Sunkat’s song, Tom Petty, made it’s satellite radio debut on Steve Ferrone’s (of The HeartbreakersThe New Guy Show, on Tom Petty Radio Sirius XM and continues to pile up streams.

As a sideman, Adam has played guitar on over 30 Billboard #1 songs. Few people have had as big of a behind-the-scenes impact on modern country music as guitarist, songwriter and producer Adam Shoenfeld.

With the crunchy, loud and proud opening notes of his lead guitar on Big & Rich’s “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” and the edgy, aggressive tone heard on Jason Aldean’s breakout smash “Hicktown,” Shoenfeld blazed a trail for a wave of hard-rock influenced country that changed the genre forever — and he hasn’t looked back since.

Born in Huntington, New York, and raised in New Jersey with a love of jazz, blues, rock and heavy metal, Shoenfeld came to Nashville at the age of 19 and began working as an in-house musician at Woodland Studios. There he met “Big Kenny” Alphin and later John Rich, going on to became a member of the infamous music-and-art collective known as the MuzikMafia and Rich’s go-to studio guitarist, laying down demos for soon-to-be groundbreaking songs like Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman.”

With the formation of Big & Rich in 2003, Shoenfeld was invited to play guitar on the duo’s debut album, Horse of a Different Color, including the multi-platinum single “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).” The song ditched familiar country sounds in favor of Shoenfeld’s brash, live-oriented feel, and helped open the floodgates in country’s new era of crossover success. He has since played on every Big & Rich album, and toured with the group from 2005-2007 and 2009.

Around the same time Big & Rich was getting started, Shoenfeld became member of Jason Aldean’s showcase band hoping to score the rock-loving Georgia native a record deal. Once Aldean was signed, Shoenfeld stayed on to develop the superstar’s muscular sound and provided the chugging, down-and-dirty lead on Aldean’s debut single “Hicktown,” which went on to become a Top 10 hit and earn platinum sales status. Shoenfeld has been featured on every subsequent Aldean release.

Following the success of Big & Rich and Aldean, Shoenfeld’s unique sound made him an in-demand studio guitarist, and he has now been included on over 200 albums including titles by Luke BryanKeith UrbanSteven TylerBlake SheltonFlorida Georgia LineJake OwenThomas RhettAlabamaTim McGrawLee BriceRascal Flatts, and many more. His work has led to nominations for the Academy of Country Music’s Guitarist of the Year award in 2011, 2012 and 2015, as well as numerous first round nominations for CMA Awards Musician of the Year award.

As a songwriter, Shoenfeld was awarded SESAC’s Song of the Year honor for Faith Hill’s “Mississippi Girl” in 2005, and he is also the co-writer of Big & Rich’s “Real World, “High Five,” “When the Devil Gets the Best of Me” and “M-E-D-E-L-Y of the Hillbilly Jedi,” plus Aldean’s “Laid Back.”

As a producer, he has guided projects for John Rich (Rich Rocks), Sarah Darling (Angels & Devils), Kelsey Harmon (One Big Favor), luvjOi (Volume 2) and more.

In 2012, Shoenfeld joined Tim McGraw’s touring band and currently travels with the group when he is not in the studio.

“Daughter of the Devil” was produced by OH NO! ØKTAPUS at Red 13 Studios

Player

“Daughter of the Devil’ came to be one of those songs where you just feel good jamming out to it and screaming the chorus in your car. I wanted to write a song with a badass vibe,rockin’ guitar parts, and the gang vocal hook to get you singing along. There’s no deep meaning to it, we wanted to create a fictional story of a girl who was raised by the devil (the bad guy) who turned out to be sultry, man teasing, people-pleasing devil blooded woman in disguise. Truth be told though, I really am and will be a daddy’s girl till the day I die.” – Jenny Teator
