Drummer Ray Rojo Releases New Song (w/video)

We were honored to have drummer Ray Rojo in the studio recording his very first composition, “Over the Trees”, and shooting a killer video! For this song Ray put together a formidable band featuring Pete Griffin (Zappa Plays Zappa/Edgar Winters) on bass, Chris Buzea on guitar, and Chris Norton (Zappa Plays Zappa) on keys. One listen to this track and you’ll know why Ray picked these guys.

“I’ve known Ray for quite sometime now and he has really become a fantastic drummer. He is one of the most hard working musicians I know and is dedicated to becoming better and better each and every day. We had a great time in the studio working with him and his band. I can’t wait to hear what he comes up with next!” says recording and mixing engineer Charlie Waymire.

“Over the Trees” will be on iTunes soon!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 

 

Rock Band Statues of Cats Release Debut EP!

Los Angeles, California – October 8, 2013 – Rock band Statues of Cats have just released their debut EP, “Memorabilia”, on 80/20 Records. The band recorded and mixed the EP at Ultimate Rhythm Studios in Los Angeles with engineer Charlie Waymire. The mastering was done by Ernesto Homeyer at Ultimate Rhythm Studios. With a vibe similar to Kings of Leon and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Statues of Cats give you a mix of rock, funk, good grooves, and fantastic vocals! “Memorabilia” is sure to earn its place in just about anyone’s collection.

Statues of Cats recording their debut EP!

Statues of Cats consists of David Hauge (vocals/guitars), Jonney Machtig (guitars/vocals), Dan Rojas (bass/vocals), and Anthony Salazar (drums/vocals). The approach for this 5 song EP was much different than the typical recording process in this day and age. Where as a lot of music made now is piece mailed together, SOC and engineer Charlie Waymire wanted “Memorabilia” to be done organically with as much “feel” as possible. “We had everyone in the room playing together, live. We even kept the scratch vocal on one of the songs because David sang his heart out on that take. What you hear on this EP is 4 guys having fun and playing music together. The energy is contagious” says engineer Charlie Waymire.

Statues of Cats is not your run of the mill rock band. They aren’t afraid to play a heavy rock riff on one song and then follow it up with a funk tune. The band was featured on an episode of FullOnDrums.com during tracking and gave a live performance of “Valley of the Sun”. They are currently working on tour dates for the fall.

 

“Memorabilia” is available on iTunes!

Charlie mixed 3 songs (“I Don’t Believe”, “Pushing & Pulling” and “Between the Blame”) on Kyng’s “Trampled Sun” (RealiD Records) which hit stores late last year and has been tearing up the airwaves.

“This band is right up my alley” says Charlie. “Heavy, melodic and REAL! Eddie has some serious pipes and great melodic sensibilities that put him right up there with the greats. I’ve known Pepe for a while and always new he could punish a kit but what he and Tony are doing on this record is simply crushing! I’m honored to have been given the opportunity to work with these cats. Now go buy the record!”
