Goings on

Over the past few months, I've received great feedback and press on my singles. In June I was featured on WHUD 100.7 FM, in New York, Hudson Valley Artist Spotlight segment. It consisted of an interview followed by the playing of my single "I Miss You (feat. Dave Bickler)".

 

Here's a link to the interview, just scroll down to 6/29/12:

It will also be featured in a showcase ad in Classic Rock Magazine, in their September/October issue.

 

Another Night Alone (feat. Dave Bickler)

I'm so excited to announce that my new single has been released and available for download online! "Another Night Alone (feat. Dave Bickler)" is an "old school" rock song with a punk rock feel and features incredible vocals by, Grammy Award winner, Dave Bickler. It is a guitar driven rock tune that also features searing guitar solos by Brad Gillis, from the band Night Ranger.

 

It was truly a joy and honor to work on my songs with such amazing musicians- how awesome!

 

Peace,
Renato

Thanks to Ryan at Pandora for making it happen!

 

Also, my next single, so far unnamed, is almost ready for release! The song, is a hard rock track, that features the same incredible musicians that played for me on "I Miss You (feat. Dave Bickler"). 

 

Isabel M. and Beauteous Maximus (Beautiful One)

Today I head down to NYC to The Cutting Room Studios for the mixdown and mastering of "Isabel M." and "Beauteous Maximus" (Beautiful One).

 

"Isabele M." is the intro to the EP. It's a little melody that I came up with while thinking of a dear friend's older sister who passed on at the tender age of 1 year. It's a very sweet little piece.

The video was shot, directed and edited by Max Galassi, YouTube channel: andletswastetime. Max is a 14 year old phenomenon/whiz kid/award winning videographer, he also played the lead male role in the video. He did a wonderful job of working with over 8 hours of video and editing it down to 3 minutes and 29 seconds!

 

I hope you enjoy the video!

Another Night Alone

...just posted a clip  (very rough mix) of "Another Night Alone" in the music player, so be sure to check it out! It is sans vocals...I do have the vocal tracks and they're bitchin', but wanted to put out a teaser 'til the song is complete. The lead guitar is by, none other than guitar player extraordinaire, Brad Gillis of Night Ranger.
