HEaRD in WNY: Shows for March 8 - 14

Scott Leffler     Monday, March 05, 2018    

This week's featured show is Edalo - A Rock Autism Event.

In 2012, Buffalo, NY-born and raised Angelo Edalo Marinelli teamed up with Robby Takac of The Goo Goo Dolls to write the track “Mariposa,” recorded at GCR Audio, by sound engineers Jay Zubricky and Justin Rose. A self-taught musician and composer, he relocated to Los Angeles in late 2013 to write and produce a Ray Charles tribute album with Charles’ grandson, the artist Robert Robinson, known as RobTwyce. “You,” the project’s single, was released by All Access Music Group in 2015.

Also in 2015, Edalo released his first full-length album, Faith, which was included in iTunes’ “Top Instrumental Music in US” list that year. Described by The Buffalo News as “a blissful place where worries vanish and happiness abounds,” Marinelli’s music has a relaxed energy. Yet his work ethic is evidenced by his partnerships, working alongside many influential musicians.

His sophomore work is California Rush, a project two years in the making and released July 7th 2017 by independent label Castle Music Group, artist development partner of Sensu Music. California Rush is mastered by Gentry Studer. Where Faith was focused on instrumental melodic sounds that capture a listener’s heart and soul, California Rush takes a slightly new direction using the same melodic sounds, but combining live lead guitar, saxophone, and electronic dance elements. Edalo’s growth and prowess as a producer combines vocals, guitar, saxophone, jam band elements, and electronic dance elements to present Marinelli’s fresh take on Livetronica.

Edalo returns home to headline a concert at Buffalo Iron Works this Saturday, March 10th in order to raise funds to battle Autism right here in our community. Doors open at 8:00pm, while Mio$i (Michael Miosi) & Aezthetix (Geoff Kowalow) will be opening up the night starting at 9:00pm. Tickets are available for $10 presale, or it's only $12 at the door for this ages 18 or older event.
