New Offering Highlights Strong Songwriting and a Signature Sound
Known for their infectious melodies and incredible live performances, Huntington based buzz band Gnarly Karma has just released their latest single, “Rags to Riches” to Spotify and all the major music services.
Co written by Singer/Guitarist Michael Renert and Drummer Jarrod Beyer and recorded in California with Steve Pagano and Mario Borgatta (who have worked with many talented national acts over the years), “Rags to Riches” is the third song to be dropped from those fantastic studio sessions – after the rollicking “Brave” and the fan sing along favorite “Follow Me”.
Jarrod Beyer remarked – “The statements – I love seeing you guys live because of the energy you bring – and – I have you guys on my Spotify but you guys are so much better live – are things we hear all the time. So one day we all sat down and said – how can we make our studio stuff be as energetic and captivating as our live shows?? We have the talent, drive, and chemistry to do it, we just needed a little direction in the studio. We wanted to capture that same energy in the studio that we create when we play live. I suggested to the band that we fly to California and record with Steve Pagano. We spent a week at the studio and put in hard work, and were happy with the results. You be the judge!”.
