Oakland Singer-Songwriter MIGHTY QUINN to Release Debut Punk Album MIGHTY QUINN & THE OAKLAND RONIN

OAKLAND, CA, USA, October 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A singer and songwriter most famous for his work on the television show Scrubs, MIGHTY QUINN (aka Quinn Walker) grew up playing Rock, Funk, Soul, and Gospel, and he presently writes music and plays shows with his live Punk band, set to release their self-titled debut album MIGHTY QUINN & THE OAKLAND RONIN in stores and online worldwide November 2, 2018. The album will also be available as a Vinyl LP, and in true Punk fashion includes a ton of leftist political messages about social justice mixed with classic upbeat tunes about love, loss, addiction, depression, and a few pirate references.

MIGHTY QUINN & The Oakland Ronin will be performing together to celebrate the release of their debut album at The Uptown in Oakland, CA on November 2, 2018. In addition to the self-titled LP of originals, MIGHTY QUINN & The Oakland Ronin will be dropping digital releases of 10 different cover songs in the coming months – Punk versions of classic 60’s tunes like “Be My Baby,” “Runaround Sue,” “You Don’t Own Me,” and more.

In 2009, MIGHTY QUINN had his first big break as a solo artist with his debut single “My Road,” produced by Brian White and featured on the ABC television show Scrubs. Quinn followed this up in 2010 with his My Road EP. Since then, MIGHTY QUINN has been at work with Steve Wyreman (Common, Logic, Vince Staples, Rihanna, Richard Ashcroft), a guitar wizard and longtime friend who inspired Quinn to go Punk and hire the young rockers Geoff Saba, Joel Davidson, and Andrew Muhoberc for the initial rotating lineup of MIGHTY QUINN & The Oakland Ronin. The word Ronin describes samurai warriors who did not follow a specific political lord – essentially, guns for hire in ancient Japan, much like the guns for hire situation of the band.

MIGHTY QUINN originally brought on Joel Davidson for his Young Ninjas EP in 2013, and they have since worked together with Geoff Saba on a variety of projects covering R&B, Trip-Hop, acoustic Soft Rock, Psychedelic Rock, and of course Punk. Andrew Muhoberc is a hardcore vegan punk artist from San Jose who has designed a lot of the band art and knew Geoff from local music circles. Together they recorded MIGHTY QUINN & THE OAKLAND RONIN at Secret Bathroom Studios in Oakland. Quinn has fond memories of the process, saying “the best part of recording was when we would sing/shout choruses together as a group, usually on a separate day than instruments, and with the assistance of alcohol.”

When Quinn Walker was in high school and college he dreamed of being a Funk/Soul bass player. He studied Jazz, Hip-hop, and R&B, and was trained by a great Gospel bass player in Oakland. However, in college Quinn developed a muscle disorder causing tendinitis and carpal tunnel in both arms and wrists, effectively ruining his performance career. Quinn was devastated, but learned to sing, produce, and teach music to keep his playing minimal. He never intended to be a singer, but with his ability to play an instrument taken away, he was able to focus his energies through new channels.

Unfortunately, health issues and injuries have been a huge part of Quinn’s life and career, keeping him in physical pain most of the time. Despite this, MIGHTY QUINN has worked as a librarian, teacher, landscaper/gardener, and many other jobs. Working at UC Berkeley and other locations teaching Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and yoga helps address his pain and disability issues, and he is passionate about helping others with the same.

Quinn studied music at UC Berkeley and recording engineering at Future Rhythm, where he met producer and long-time collaborator Brian Lee White. They first worked together in 2008 as engineer/producers on Exposed, a Gospel record by Tiffani Marie. With over 15 years in the industry, Brian White has worked with thousands of artists, labels, and corporate clients worldwide including Apl.de.ap (Black Eyed Peas), Kelly Rowland, Christina Milian, Jabbewockeez, and MIGHTY QUINN. Quinn introduced Brian to the talented composer Brian Trifon of Trifonic, and they formed the company Finishing Move Inc. Together they have worked with the SF and LA Symphonies on several occasions, and written and produced music for films and video game franchises including Halo, Massive Chalice, and Google Tilt Brush. In 2013, MIGHTY QUINN explored some darker sounds with the Young Ninjas EP and music video for his track “Fear,” featuring members of the UCB Wushu team. The years following saw Quinn working with Dan Petersen, Steve Pedersen, and Christian Lewis of indie band Evaline for the Open & Shut LP.

Borgore Peels Back Another Layer of Composition Mastery With 'The Firest' EP Release

Featuring New Tracks “Are You Sure Now?” And “On The Side (ft. Tima Dee)”

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Borgore continues his reign as the boundary busting King with the release of ‘The Firest’ EP, which includes new tracks “Are You Sure Now?” and “On The Side (ft. Tima Dee)” in addition to the hard-hitting single “MOP feat. Gucci Mane & THIRTY RACK”.
It’s available now at all digital retailers via Buygore Records.

Get it HERE: http://Borgore.co/TheFirest

The Israeli-born, Los Angeles-based musician, producer, and DJ maintains a diversified discography with each release this year. With tracks spanning dubstep, electronic, big room, bass, jazz, and most recently trap, Borgore proves his expertise through fluidly merging sub-genres and pivoting between genres altogether.

“This entire year I've put out very different styles of music, that I haven't repeated. For this EP I wanted to continue that and show the diverse music I was creating. I don't like keeping myself or my music fixed in a certain space- I produce and release what I’m feeling or inspired by. “MOP” came at a great time as I hadn't released a hip-hop track in a while. I stuck to my core with “Are You Sure Now? – probably one of the heaviest bass tracks I’ve released. But “On The Side (ft. Tima Dee)” was very different, in a good way, and a bit pop-ier than what I’m used to.” – Borgore

Borgore is in the final stretch of his fall North American headline run, the “BGU Tour” with special guests GG Magree and Benda.

Buy tickets to the few remaining dates HERE: http://borgore.co/BGU

Borgore is hailed as one of the most mind-melting dubstep artists of his generation, the classically trained producer, songwriter, and DJ's sonic evolution has been as enticing as his surreal multi-sensory show productions. Between countless sold out dates and festival appearances worldwide, he’s attracted A-list collaborators such as G-Eazy, Waka Flocka Flame, Miley Cyrus, Juicy J and more to join him on bold, brilliant, and bloody bangers. His unbelievable journey encompasses attending a prestigious music school in his native Tel Aviv, manning the drum kit for a deathcore band, and rapping. Additionally, he owns and runs his own Buygore Records.

Be on the lookout for more from Borgore very soon!

Crash: From Appice to Peart to Van Halen by David Frangioni

by David Frangioni

SAN RAFAEL, CA, USA, October 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — This illustrated history details a one-of-a-kind, personal collection of iconic drum kits as they appeared on rock ‘n’ roll’s biggest stages.

San Rafael, CA – October 10, 2018 – “Crash: From Apprice to Peart To Van Halen,” is a new hardcover book illustrating iconic rock and jazz drum kits. Award-winning author, audio engineer, and drummer David Frangioni profiles legendary drummers from Ringo Starr, Joey Kramer (Aerosmith), Cozy Powell (Black Sabbath), Eric Singer and Peter Criss (KISS), Zac Starkey (the Who), Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Alex Van Halen (Van Halen), and many more with an inside look at their custom kits complemented by exclusive photography from photographer Mark Weiss, a foreword from Carl Palmer, and an afterword by Eric Singer.

“Crash” is an insider’s tour of author David Frangioni’s collection of some of the most famous drum kits in rock ‘n’ roll and jazz history. More than a historical reference, the book’s spectacular photography gives an up-close-and-personal view of many rare drum kits which were amassed over decades of live tours, road shows, behind-the-scene sessions, and recording studio moments — the like of which has never before been assembled.

Detailing 30 drummers and over 60 drum kits and the personal connection between the artists and their instruments, readers can dive into the significance of both on rock history and music trends from the 1960s through present day. With “Crash,” readers can study the artistry and graphics, specifications, autographs, and wear-and-tear of the drum kits up close — from the mirror-ball finish on Eric Singer’s kit from several KISS tours, the Drum Workshop Collector’s Series custom acrylic kit played by Zac Starkey at the Super Bowl in 2010, to the “dog-and-human-face graphic” on the bass drum Joey Kramer’s kit from the Aerosmith’s Nine Lives tour.

Frangioni curated the collection displayed in “Crash” throughout his career as a drummer and renowned audio consultant and engineer, in part through personal relationships with many of the drummers which brings insight into their talent and passions described in the book. In the foreword by ELP & Asia drummer (Modern Drummer Magazine’s 1989 Hall of Famer) Carl Palmer, describes “Crash” as “one of the most important collections of drums kits in the world—truly one of a kind.”

“‘Crash’ puts drummers and their equipment on center-stage for enthusiasts, history buffs, and music fans to explore,” said Frangioni. “This book champions each drummer and what they brought to rock, plus the extraordinary details of memorable kits. ”

“Crash: From Apprice to Peart to Van Halen” is published by Insight Editions and is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

About the Author
David Frangioni is an award-winning veteran of the music industry, with expertise ranging from being a drummer and producer himself, to a renowned audio consultant, installer, and recording engineer.

Canadian Recording Artist Dion Todd Returns with Hot New Single “Remedy for Insanity”

With a hypnotic beat, compelling voice, and powerful production from Grammy winner Philip Larsen, Dion Todd is exploding back onto the Canadian music scene.

TORONTO, CANADA, October 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dion Todd may have stepped away from music for several years to pursue business interests, but it’s clear that music runs through his veins. Transitioning from his incredible success in the business world, Dion is delivering unforgettable pop/dance music of the highest calibre, while surrounded by a team of true proven professionals, such as Grammy award-winning songwriter Tiffany Fred, and Grammy award-winning producer Philip Larsen. In exciting news, Dion’s label, Shyre, announced the release of his new single “Remedy for Insanity” on October 9, 2018. Co-written with Tiffany, the song hit #18 on the iTunes Top 200 dance chart in Canada. Co-written with Tiffany, the expectations surrounding the track are very high, and sets the stage for the release of his full length album in early 2019.

“Returning to music has re-energized my love for creating evocative songs with a positive emotional impact,” commented the passionate artist. “It also gives me an influential platform to bring awareness to causes that are important to me, such as working with underprivileged children, as well as victims of domestic abuse and human trafficking.”

“Remedy for Insanity” combines powerful lyrics and vocals, with an infectious melody and rhythm. Dion's obvious charisma is apparent throughout the song, and it would be no shocker if many couples end up calling this “their song”.

Hits are not anything new to Dion, with his single “Rocketship State of Mind” peaking at #22 on the Canadian Top 100 (ADISQ), and hitting the Top Ten on numerous charts including #1 in New Brunswick on 97.1 CKRO-FM. One of his previous singles, “Never Surrender,” hit #28 on the Canada Top 30 CHR/POP chart (Mediabase). Dion is also a three-time East Coast Music Award (ECMA) nominee.

Armed with a passion for music in one hand, and an MBA (Master of Business Administration) from one of the world’s most prestigious Universities MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in the other, one thing is certain, Dion Todd is well on his way to an even greater success. Really, anything is possible.

Don't miss “Remedy for Insanity.”
