Fabrizio Grossi & Soul Garage Experience announce the release date of their debut album “Counterfeited Soulstice Vol 1”, September 10 on all digital platforms, Amazon and physical in selected stores worldwide.
This is marked by the reveal of the ride along through LA in a supercharged Dodge, ‘Ain’t No Givin’ Up’ video and single.Fab says of the song,
“This is a song about resilience of the poor, of the oppressed, of the discriminated against, and of all the ones that are struggling to be heard when protesting against all types of abuses, whereas such abuses are perpetrated by economic entities, political foes, or even by the police.” It bears relentless groove and soul-reggae vibes which supports the song’s firm and direct message: “Don’t mess with us, we’re tired, but we’re not alone.”
This is the album Fab says he would have wanted to make if it was still 1972, sadly enough, the majority of its thematics could have worked back then, just as they are incredibly current today. The ghost of his first true music love Bob Marley is definitely felt throughout the whole record, and not only for the often embraced reggae tones, but for the simple, positive & direct way the often engaging and opinionated lyrics are narrated.
The record features solid talent in Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros), Hermann Matthews (Tower of Power, Stevie Wonder), Kenny Aronoff (John Fogerty, Joe Satriani, Paul McCartney), Bette Smith, Alastair Greene (Alan Parsons, solo artist), Diimond Meeks (American Idol & America’s Got Talent finalist andCeeLo Gen pupil), Alex Alessandroni Jr (Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, Pink, Natalie Cole), and again Derek Day, Dylan Meek, The Supersonettes (Francis Benitez & Andrea Grossi Benitez), Chris Hansen, Fabio Drusin and more!
The young ‘Top Gun’ LA based rising maverick, Derek Day provides the incendiary guitar playing on most of the record and catches a ride in the new video. He infuses his music with the power of rock and a big chunk of soul with guitar chops seasoned for all tastes. He comes with experience beyond his years having opened for and performed with luminaries in Steve Vai, Moby, and Slash
