Planet LA Records is pleased to announce GRAMMY-Award winning sound engineer/producer Tony Maserati as the executive producer for the upcoming release for label band, Native June. The EP “Ocean to Sunset” is scheduled for release in Spring 2011.
Tony Maserati is a two-time GRAMMY Award winner for his work with Beyonce Knowles and Sergio Mendes. His clients have included The Black-Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Keri Hilson and Jason Mraz. He also has a branded line of audio plug-ins with Waves software. Originally from the New York area, Maserati recently relocated to Los Angeles in 2010 to charter new musical territory beyond his usual roster of leading pop, hip hop and R&B artists. Emerging rock band Native June is the first artist he will produce in Los Angeles as he seeks to define a new and distinct genre with his signature touch.
Native June blends Midwest nostalgia featuring Gabe Watson on vocals along with the sonic swagger of British and French members Tristan Hendy and Martial Chaput.
Gorilla Acoustic heralds that “Native June’s upbeat tempos, moving baselines and distinctive leads are hard not to like.” The band has been a headliner along the Sunset Strip including The Troubadour, House of Blues Los Angeles, Whisky A Go-Go, and will kick off the emerging artists series at the new Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Boulevard on December 16, 2010, and launch a tour next spring en route to SXSW 2011 in Austin, TX to support the release of the EP.
Planet LA Records and its publishing affiliate Planet LA Music provide full-service music promotion and represent artists including local bands Djinn, Evolove, Native June and When Planets Align, British band The Tonepoets and Indian icon Bappi Lahiri. Planet LA also has partnerships with MusicBox publishing library and the charity Not For Sale campaign.
