Joe Sal releases new single ‘She-Cat’ feat. David Jackson

MILAN, Italy, 2019-Oct-18 — /EPR Network/ —

The songwriter and producer of alt-rock known as Joe Sal has released his latest official single, “She-Cat.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. In addition to the skills of Sal, himself, “She-Cat” also features sax performances by David Jackson of The Van Der Graaf Generator fame. While this is the first fully fledged recording of the track, it also appears on Sal’s popular “Live at Scimmie” solo EP (2014) which continues to garner fame. Jazzy, bluesy, and with plenty of feline swagger, “She-Cat” showcases Joe Sal as one of Italy’s premier rock singers and guitarists.

Milan’s Giorgio “Joe Sal” Salati cites as main artistic influences Chris Cornell, Jeff Buckley, Stevie Wonder, and interestingly, Andrew Lloyd Webber. His own sound has most in common with Cornell, particularly in the vocal department. Rock fans will be hard-pressed to decide whether Sal is primarily a singer or primarily a guitarist. Sponsored by both LOUD Guitars and DG Amps & Pedals, he’s all geared up but can occasionally sound best as a simple singer-songwriter. With an emphasis on strong songwriting, solid riff work and raw, natural, gritty vocals, “She-Cat” by Joe Sal has a little something for every alt-rock fan.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “She-Cat,” Joe Sal writes, “People think that cats are selfish animals, but it’s not that true.”

If you’re not buying it right away, don’t worry. Sal’s got logic behind his claim:

“They stay locked up all day in our houses, getting bored and waiting for their beloved humans. In the evening the humans come back home, have dinner, watch TV and then go to sleep, so their cats get bored again all night long. Maybe our cats love us more than we love them. That’s the reason for the sad mood of this song, which talks about a female cat waiting all the time for a little attention from his beloved man.”

Joe Sal has been playing original music since the nineties when his older brother, Ettori Salati (The Watch, Alex Carpani Band, RedZen, SoulEngine) taught him the pentatonic scale. By 1999, he’d started fronting a trio, KickStart. They produced an LP, 2003’s “Fuel,” and a single, “I Am Free,” in 2006. In addition to festival appearances, they were featured in magazines and on radio and TV shows. Sal went solo in 2012, and was soon offered a collaboration project with David Jackson of the UK’s Van Der Graaf Generator. The next four years saw him touring worldwide and performing vocals on two Alex Carpani Band LPs, “4 Destinies” and “So Close So Far,” which also featured brother Ettore Salati and Van Der Graaf Generator’s David Jackson, as well as Bologna’s famed prog-rocker Alex Carpani on keys.

Besides his aforementioned solo record, “Live at Scimmie,” his most prominent material appeared in the form of singles, “No Lies” (2018) and “I Belong to the Sun” (2019).

She-Cat sounds a bit different from the previous alternative rock oriented singles. The sound of S-C is jazzy and acoustic, and mr David Jackson’s saxophones is the extra gear that makes the song fly.

She-Cat” by Joe Sal is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, alt-rock fans.

Kate Soul releases debut EP album ‘Dark ‘n’ Bright’

The songwriter and producer of pop music known as Kate Soul has released her debut EP album, “Dark ‘n’ Bright.” The EP contains five original Kate Soul tracks and an intro for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Sultry, chill, and indeed not a little shadowy, “Dark ‘n’ Bright” showcases Kate Soul as one of East Europe’s biggest surprises of the year.

Ukraine’s Kate Soul cites as main artistic influences Meg Myers, Regina Spektor, Elsiane, Deftones, The XX, and Jeff Buckley. Her own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result which lies somewhere between the spaciness of Bjork, the classiness of Tori Amos, and the creativity of Regina Spektor. With an emphasis on intuitive, meaningful songwriting and genuine, heartfelt performances, “Dark ‘n’ Bright” by Kate Soul has a little something for every fan of great music.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Dark ‘n’ Bright,” Kate Soul writes: “It reveals the feeling of revaluation, the feeling of being in a wrong place, comprehension of self-consciousness and just being attentive to your self. It also touches the love subject, being able actually to feel the love, give it, not only to accept. ‘Dark ‘n’ Bright’ is a man’s condition which is constantly changing but still brings us tons of colours.”

Other themes on her debut record include various philosophical thoughts, living with mixed-up value systems, feelings of isolation and emptiness, and more.

An autodidactic musician, Kate Soul has written and performed music in the experimental pop, downtempo, indie-pop, psychedelic, alternative rock, trip-hop, and soul categories. Having begun singing in earnest in 2010, she first played in the One Bad Planet band prior to this current solo career which takes wing with “Dark ‘n’ Bright.”

Lindbloom releases new EP album ‘Back Tracks’

The songwriter and producer of hard rock known as Lindbloom has released his latest official EP album, “Back Tracks.” The EP album contains three never-before-released Lindbloom tracks for an approximate listening time of 10 minutes. Part metal, part classic rock and all octane, “Back Tracks” showcases Lindbloom as one of the most intriguing rock music artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

For this post-facto release of “Back Tracks,” Sweden’s Lindbloom cites as main artistic influences Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen, Symphony X, Soundgarden, Ozzy Osbourne, Allan Holdsworth, and John Scofield. With an emphasis on Lindbloom’s signature guitar and howling vocal work by Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse), “Back Tracks” by Lindbloom has a little something for every fan of the original metal sound.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Back Tracks,” Lindbloom writes, “In early 2006, Eclipse singer Erik Mårtensson and I recorded several demos together. ‘Back Tracks’ contains my personal favorites from that session. I wrote the music and lyrics (lyrics together with Jerry R. Steele Jr. on ‘Thank You’) towards the end of 2005, and I think they deserve to see the light of day.”

The artist goes on to note that, as has proven true for many independent recordings, technological progress may be thanked for the release of these songs.

I didn’t release them back then because these were demos,” Lindbloom writes, “and internet publishing possibilities were much more limited than today. The songs gained the attention of a couple of record companies, but other things were going on in my life at that time and for various reasons I lost interest in signing a deal.”

Fans of Lindbloom will note a different direction from the more progressive material on his recent “Lady Opium” record.

Lindbloom says of “Back Tracks,” “These tunes are bursting with energy. At the time of recording, I was mostly playing metal, and that kind of energy is still very close to my heart, although these days I combine it with jazz/fusion/funk etc., as you can hear on, ‘Lady Opium.’ But my love for metal remains the same, and I thought it would be fun to release these tracks, too.”

Magnus Lindbloom has toured and played with such heavy-hitters as Morgan Ågren (Frank Zappa) and Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen). His guitar techniques and performances have been lauded by famed virtuoso Greg Howe. “Back Track” features singing by renowned lead vocalist Erik Mårtensson of Eclipse as Lindbloom and Mårtensson were closely working together at the time these demos were recorded.

Back Tracks” by Lindbloom is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, prog rock fans.

We all are unique with personalities. I myself, I look at myself as a fallen angel who’s living on earth until it’s my time to fly again for the king, God himself.”
