Viva DeConcini To Deliver Rock & Roll Lover in July
The disc's nine tracks, in Viva's words, celebrate rock & roll's power to transform "anger into beauty" -making life's trials and tribulations worthwhile- with joyful exuberance. The album also features a wild, spacey cover of David Bowie's "Moonage Daydream" and a wailing instrumental rendition of the Carole King classic "Natural Woman."
Viva is one of the few women to ever be featured in a 3-page spread in Guitar Player Magazine. She honed her chops during a six-year stint playing guitar and percussion in Brazilian Cyro Baptista's critically acclaimed band Beat The Donkey. She has also jammed with luminaries like Medeski, Martin and Wood and Trey Anastasio. Viva is also a producer of New York City's 'Rock & Roll Burlesque' at The Slipper Room, the multi-performer Dolly Parton tribute "Dolly Would" at Joe's Pub, and regularly conducts a 20-unit drum corps in NYC's Halloween, Pride, and Mermaid Parades. - Stream new Viva DeConcini songs on MySpace
