MarilynMusic, a new music company leveraging decades of experience in both music and film/TV, announced that their song "To The Party" was featured on Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Dorie Colangelo's album '63rd Street Recordings', released this month. The album is a collection of big, rocked-out, yet poignant songs from this americana/country/folk/pop musician.
"Dorie is an extremely talented singer and we felt that her voice was perfect for this song," said MarilynMusic's Casey Conrad. "Once we recorded "To The Party," Dorie liked it so much that she decided to add it to her album."
Casey, who co-wrote the song with partner Michael Gaines, produced the album with Joanne Perica, also playing the drums and bass on the track. The song was recorded, mixed and mastered at Casey's Manhattan studio, the Vertical Room.
MarilynMusic recently announced the release of their upcoming "Pure Music" series. The genre-based EP series will showcase Conrad and Gaines' growing and diverse catalogue, encompassing everything from pop to R&B and country, with the series debut release of "Pure Rock" in May 2010. Oseao Media Group will be working closely with major digital retailers, including iTunes, Amazon and eMusic as well as TV/film and advertising agencies.
'63rd Street Recordings' is available for sale on CD Baby
Listening to MarilynMusic, one hears everything from rock, to pop, R&B and jazz. The range of styles in this duo's musical catalogue is almost as vast as the experience of the composers themselves. Casey Conrad and Michael Gaines, the two men behind MarilynMusic, each draw inspiration and knowledge from a lifetime spent in the music and entertainment industry that began in early childhood. Between the two of them, they have worked in every aspect of the entertainment industry including television, film, theatre, and the performance of music. In recent years, MarilynMusic has shifted their focus to composing and producing music, leveraging their longtime experience working with big-name talent from Bo Diddley to Ruben Blades to Chaka Khan.
With decades of combined experience in both music, film and TV, MarilynMusic is well prepared to expertly execute any project from songs, to film, to commercial jingles. While they are both the products of a family whose roots are in the entertainment industry, they learned their trade the old fashioned way - by vigorously working with the goal of perfection in mind.
