Bryan Lavigne Says Goodbye To Corporate America On Big Picture Idiot CD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tulsa, OK-July 2, 2007-For independent artist Bryan Lavigne the inspiration for his new album Big Picture Idiot came out of the frustration with going to an office 5 days a week and doing something he simply did not enjoy. This became more apparent by finding something to do that he did enjoy, songwriting and recording music. The birth of a child also put a different light on things and after that, the decision was easy, become a stay at home dad and make music. None of this happened impulsively however, careful planning was in place all along. Lavigne had all of his songs complete before turning in his keys and walking away to a new future filled with hope and promise.

All of Big Picture Idiot was recorded, mixed, and then mastered in the home studio of Lavigne. His former occupation of Computer Engineer gave him the necessary troubleshooting skills to learn about audio engineering. From the days of making multi-track recordings using 2 cassette decks and spliced wires while in college with no money, to a 4 track cassette, then finally into digital computer recording today-the artist has learned the basics and built upon that to bring him to a level that few reach while recording independently at home. Coming up with a process using the computer that allowed him to write ideas and take it all the way to a finished song was just the beginning for the inspired Lavigne.

Most songs on Big Picture Idiot started with a guitar part. Lavigne would add bass and drums then write lyrics and melodies, believing Kurt Cobain's philosophy that the music comes first. He would then rework the rhythm section if necessary, to fit the melody, come up with some leads, harmonies and sometimes keyboard parts. From that point, the rough mix was ready for re-recording all the parts starting with the drums. The final tracks would start with a final drum take to lock in a good groove, and the basic parts were finished and ready for changing parts, mostly leads, keyboards or harmonies-then finally the mixing and mastering to complete the album.

Lavigne played and sang all parts on the CD. He played guitar, bass, drums, and some keyboards. His love for bands like Rush, Beck, Cake, and Sting come through in different parts of the recording but it all boils down to tough as nails rock-metal with a punk underbelly to drive that final stake into the heart of his past. Music can be the healer and the impetus to change, and Bryan Lavigne did it all his own way, making a CD full of energy and conviction.

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018 http://ghost-official.com


With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…
