Greetings,

I hope this message finds you all in good spirits.  I’m writing to let all of you know that I’ve recently posted new material on my Soundcloud profile, including some live clips of my recent performance at the 55 Bar with The Felix Pastorius Group, aka, The Hipster Assassins.  There are a couple of tracks online as well as previews of some upcoming music that I’m writing for Resolution15’s upcoming full length album.  For now, here’s a sample of what you can expect from my Soundcloud page:

 

In other news, Resolution15 has begun to divulge the history of the band itself in our latest video on YouTube:

Thanks again for visiting my site.  I look forward to seeing you at any of my upcoming shows (conveniently listed in my Itinerary).  Until next time, be well.

Resolution 15 To Record Full Length!

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Greetings,

As some of you may know, Resolution 15 has been working on a compilation series that we’ve thus far dubbed, The Svaha Sessions, or rough translation, “So Be It.” Now, we have unveiled our full plan. This year, we will record the album Svaha with the help of You, our fans. We’ve decided to create a kickstarter campaign in order to help this project become a reality. In conjunction with the entire band pulling together its collective resources and recording equipment, we decided to invite those of you who have been touched by our music to become part of the recording process with us. Not to mention, that since it is a Kickstarter campaign, giving does come with some reward as well. I believe some of the tiers even include a Private Performance for You and 50 of your friends, unveiling our soon to be recorded material. (Which on a side note I am proud of: A lot of it has been composed and arranged by me, so you could imagine my need for this kickstarter to succeed!) I could go on and on about what we’re trying to do this year, but I think the video will do a much better job of explaining where we are coming from. Please enjoy and if you feel lead to donate, I thank you in advanced, and please, spread the word!

Gira Colombia & Under The Microscope

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Greetings All,

May this message find you in a place of peace of mind, or at the very least, positive transition! It’s been some weeks since I’ve written to you, but my absence from the online world has not been for naught. I’ve been pretty busy with a brand new production lead by Grammy Award winning producer and arranger Victor “Papo” Ortiz for the upcoming Iglesia Casa De Alabanza album. For those of you who may not be aware of this church, it was founded by my Grandfather, Apostle Bobby Cruz (of the Richie Ray y Bobby Cruz fame). I won’t go into a full history of the church,  but I will say that within the christian community, ICA has been a powerhouse of music, especially within the Latin Christian world, with my grandfather rewriting or rearranging with Richie Ray many of their classic songs, transforming them from  secular songs to  religious-oriented materials. But getting back to the point…

What started out for me as merely being hired as a session player for a few tracks on the album, has lead me to becoming part of the production aspect of the album, with the responsibility of writing/arranging/producing a song for the album in more of a Funk/Gospel vein. So far, the experience has been quite rewarding. We tracked the drums at Hit Factory Studios in Miami, Florida, in the same room that my father once tracked drums in when I was a little kid, Which was an honor in and of itself. Next, we recorded the rest of the song in New York City’s Premier Studios in Times Square, with good friend and studio virtuoso Ryan Kelly at the helm (Click Here for the “Humble” version of his clientele). Later in September, I’ll be flying to Nashville to produce the singers for the song, another event that I’m quite looking forward to. The album is expected to be done by early Fall, so stay tuned for more information on that.

In other news, Resolution 15 is getting ready to release another chapter of our Svaha Sessions, so check us out on Facebook and Twitter for release times, or, if you’re a true audiophile, hit us up on our Soundcloud page. Also in metal news, the music video that I performed in for I.N.C. is now live and streaming for your viewing pleasure! Check out myself and Sam Roon from Hung rocking out from a rooftop in Brooklyn!

Lastly, I will be returning to Colombia this year with my good friend and tremendous guitarist Greg Diamond. This year we will be performing in Bogota, Manizales, and Barranquilla, throughout the first week of September, with a few more dates to come so stay tuned for that as well!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming show or hearing from you via email or facebook!

Cheers,

Kenny
