Alejandro Discusses First Impressions on Latination TV  

iTunes | Spotify | Amazon


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  - BLACK PANDA PR - New York, NY - August 25, 2015 -  Miami-born, Buenos Aires-bred, New York-based Rock & Blues composer Alejandro Meola recently released his new EP, First Impressions, and he’s performing live shows on the east coast this fall in support with his band Robinsones.  The first gig is at Piano’s in NYC on Thursday, September 3.  More music and more shows are currently in the works. Stay in touch and up-to-date online and on social media.  

“I could have called it ‘First Impressions of New York’ easily…. It’s essentially the musical expression of this inner revolution I’ve experienced in the past couple of years since I first moved to New York from Buenos Aires. The people, the streets, the language, the bars, the food, the fashion, they are all imprinted in these new songs. Not mentioned once literarily in the lyrics but in the sound.  The sound is different. And by different, I mean new,” says the Latin troubadour.

Meola filed two singles in the US in 2014 (“Please” and “Black Feathered Angels”).   He’s been making music between South and North America since 2007.  That includes 2 LPs and 2 EPs before debuting in the US last year.

First Impressions is an eclectic 25-minute rock ‘n’ roll  voyage divided in five episodes of super songwriting, arrangement and production, courtesy of Meola, Francisco Botero’s engineering for Studio G Greenpoint and Steve Fallone’s mastering for Sterling Sound … and then there’s his band, Robinsones.
Robinsones; named after a passage from the book “El Eternauta” by Hector Oesterheld, is a slang Castilian reference to Robinson Crusoe.

“As much as I enjoy and respect the acoustic singer-songwriter format, since my very early recordings in Buenos Aires, there’s always been a full electric band involved.  The decision of putting a name to it has to do with recognizing that fact and somehow institutionalizing it. It’s a family.  It’s a musical carousel of current, past and future musicians that with skills and talent contribute directly to the resulting sound of this project.…. and Robinsones is never preceded by “the.”  It’s Robinsones alone.  Preceded by ‘and’ Robinsones never ‘the’ haha!,” Meola concludes.
