"Smash Joan Jett together with Iggy Pop, and you've just created Soraia's lead, ZouZou Mansour. The band Soraia is born from raw power, fiery passion for rock n' roll music, and relentless, unconquerable spirit. Well known for their spitfire live performances, they've most recently had a #1 hit in South America with their version of The Kinks' "(I'm Not) Like Everybody Else" from their last record. Garnering the interest of major rock icons and producers along the way, Soraia will continue burning a fire into new fans' hearts with their upcoming release, "Less Than Zero".
It’s rare in today’s music to find a band that embodies the swagger of rock and roll, groove of Philly-soul, heartache of the blues and folk-esque storytelling quite like Cold Roses.
After years as a guitarist in Philly bands, Rob Clancy decided to step out on his own as lead singer and songwriter, and form a group to play the music he’d been envisioning for so long. A post to Craig’s List ushered in Brandon Porter on bass, and the lineup became solidified with the addition of Alex Ayala on keys and R.M Webb on drums. The modest four piece would then expand to include a horn section, featuring Rick Rein on trumpet and Tom Petraccaro on saxophone.
Honing their signature sound and electrifying audiences along the east coast for the past year and a half, Cold Roses self-released their debut LP “No Silence In The City” on November 1st, 2014. Produced by Webb and Clancy, and recorded at Miner Street Recordings, the band implemented a more “traditional” recording approach by performing each song live to analog tape, emulating the energy and intimacy of their live shows. The result is an 11 song “tour de force” album that showcases the band’s versatility and “demonstrate[s] what it means to live and breathe the essence of rock and roll…this is a dirty, soulful, wickedly fun album” (ThatMag). Whoever said rock and roll was dead must have just given up.
