ACE FREHLEY Guests On New KEN SHARP Album From
Ken Sharp Original
KISS guitarist Ace Frehley makes a guest appearance on "Beauty
In The Backseat", the new album from
singer-songwriter and author Ken Sharp. The disc sheds the dark,
musical blood on the tracks vibe of Ken's previous release, "New
Mourning", and draws deep from his Philly roots, delivering a fresh
blast of infectious soul-pop and power pop. Produced by Fernando
Perdomo (TODD RUNDGREN, JAKOB DYLAN, BECK) and Sharp, the record
showcases mighty musical contributions from Frehley (guitar solo on
"Rock Show") and another Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame legend John
Oates ("Philly Kind of Night") along with UTOPIA's Kasim Sulton
("Mona Lisa Smile").
The 16-track album traverses a wide musical terrain and a myriad of
lyrical themes. "Rock Show" delivers the intoxicating joy of getting
your band on the concert stage; "Pull The Strings" is a quirky story
of an adult in his mid-40s who can’t survive without his
ventriloquist dummy by his side ("Pull The Strings"), the death of
David Bowie is explored on "The Day That David Bowie Died";
"Sinking" chronicles the transformative power of loss while "Listen
To Me" is a plea for unity in a world torn apart by social and
political tumult and divisiveness.
"Being a Philly boy with my ear permanently glued to the radio dial,
the sound of Philadelphia etched its indelible mark on my musical
DNA," says Sharp. "Being able to work in the studio with John Oates,
someone whose music was the soundtrack of my youth, was a supersonic
blessing of brotherly love! Another full-circle moment for me, being
a huge fan of KISS since I was a kid, I was thrilled that Ace
Frehley laid down a solo on the opening track, titled, appropriately
enough, 'Rock Show'."
"Beauty In The Backseat" is Sharp's fifth album. He is a seasoned
live performer who’s recently landed high profile gigs opening for
John Waite, David Cassidy and THE BABYS and headlined The Troubadour
in Hollywood, California.

Marksman Lloyd drops
‘Gene Simmons’ music video From
marksmanlloyd.com Rising Perth (Australia) rapper Marksman Lloyd just released his
highly anticipated music video to infectious single "Gene Simmons".
Directed by Angelo Dicarlo at one of his favorite local coffee
spots, 16 Ounces, the clip is a date turned dance party starring
model and activist Angeline Faith.
“Gene Simmons was the first ‘happy love song’ I’ve probably ever
written, so I wanted to make a clip that had that playful,
nonchalant nature,” says Lloyd.
“I’m awkward as hell in real life so why not just show that in the
clip and have some fun with it.”
Released from last years EP Portals, the single highlights his
unique flow, melodic progression and refreshing charisma.
Lyrically, "Gene Simmons" is an affirmation of love and the
ridiculousness of the whole dance. The song originally came to
Marksman in a dream (a self-confessed rare occurrence) while he was
traveling throughout South East Asia and nailed it in the studio as
soon as he returned."
