Of course, I should say something like this, imagine your listening to a track featuring legendary lead singers including Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, ex-Journey vocalist Steve Augeri, and Queensryche’s Todd LaTorre and comprised of former Queen + Paul Rodgers bassist Danny Miranda, Blue Oyster Cult drummer Jules Radino, and guitarist/songwriter Mike Holtzman. Such names are capable to provide the thrill without even listening! Although, I have been getting great submissions lately by young talents, still, listening to experienced iconic musicians has a totally different taste. Bad Penny is produced by Tony Bruno (Rihanna, Rock Me Amadeus).
While checking the band’s forthcoming single “Push Comes to Shove” you will find Halford along with the New York-based vocalist Militia Vox gave an iconic warm, intimate and powerful vocal line. Halford was totally right when he said to blabbermouth “This song just grabbed me” because this is what happened to me as well with such dark and gamours sexy mood. I believe one of the main factors for the success of this song was based on the beauty of experienced vocals. Guitars really caught my ears from the first second! I loved the acoustic lines and the heavy overdriven riffs alike. And definitely, I won’t forget the impressive licks and soloing which provides a charm for the whole track indeed. I keep stressing on ‘experience’ because one of the main factors to make a tight song structure pf guitars, bass, and drums, is actually by musicians who each one of them is aware by his instrument and totally aware of what a music structure is. Sadly, these days newcomers lean more into digital DAWs and don’t depend more on their talents. Feel the beauty and don’t miss their previous singles below! Stay tuned for my chat with one of the Bad Penny masters Mike Holtzman very soon! 😉
