BAND PERRY ROCKS RODEO HOUSTON ON FIRST NIGHT OF 2016

The Band Perry Pulled Out All The Stops At The First Official Night Of The Houston Live Stock Show And Rodeo.


(Houston, Texas)- The Band Perry [TBP] trio kicked off Rodeo Houston Wednesday night, and it was clear Houston was ready! After a short delay due to a tragic Chuck Wagon accident, the band arrived to the stage in rodeo style, a black Ford Explorer amid a storm of fireworks, smoke and the good ole smell of rodeo food.

Two small hours before TBP took to the stage, news came out of Nashville of a split with Big Machine Label Group, and The Band Perry; reportedly over the bands new sound.

Still, a reported crowd of 52,050 welcomed the sibling trio, Kimberly, Neil and Reed Perry — to Reliant Stadium, wearing boots and belt buckles was the only reminder of a country concert instead of ‘Pop.’ Loaded with award-winning, platinum, and gold singles, the bands set list of hits echoed from the ceiling of the arena.

The crowd, visibly thinner than 2015’s kick off night seemed to be waiting for something from the band, and they sure got it! The country trio, let loose the lion, around their fourth song, and you could see the crowd energy increase with each song.

It took TBP awhile to settle in vocally, but when they did, the harmonies were on point.

“Live Forever” and “The Best One Yet,” new singles from their upcoming album Heart+Beat, screams ‘pop’ and demanded the crowds attention.

The Band Perry’s award-winning ballad “If I Die Young,” came towards the end of their show set. The song allowed the family band to sell more than 4 million copies and won them a Grammy!

The hour long set list, included several fan-pleasing, often very pop, up beat songs, and covers from Justin Beieber, and Justin Timberlake, to name a few. It was the bands fifth Rodeo Houston appearance.

TBP took the opportunity to ‘thank Houston’ for supporting the band’s first single “Hip To My Heart,” even though Kimberley Perry then ‘thanked’ the crowd of Dallas. Another surprise, the show went on, like it didn’t happen.

RAPHAEL BRINGS TROUBLE TO THE DANCEFLOOR AND THE BOXING RING WITH “BOYS ARE TROUBLE”

RAPHAEL BRINGS TROUBLE TO THE DANCEFLOOR AND THE BOXING RING WITH “BOYS ARE TROUBLE”
The soulful electro-pop singer Raphael releases “Boys Are Trouble”, a dark, seductive track. Written by Raphael, the song − with its moody piano, beautifully sad strings, and raw vocals that exude vulnerability − is being compared to ballads by Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd.  “Boys Are Trouble is a song about addiction, whether it is love, sex, or the human body,” explains the artist. “I often find that just when I think I’m in control of my emotions, a sexy guy comes along, carnality takes over and I fall to pieces.” “Boys Are Trouble” is the second single from Raphael’s upcoming album, The Dark of My Mind.  The single is now available on iTunes and Spotify, along with its brand new club remix by superstar DJ Joe Gauthreaux. The “Boys Are Trouble” music video is available on YouTube.
“I tend to fall for guys who are aloof and ridiculously overconfident. I become so consumed in vying for their attention that I completely lose myself,” explains Raphael from Downtown Music Studios in Manhattan. He is there mixing his album with multi-Grammy award winning mixer Tony Maserati (Beyonce – “Crazy In Love”).  “It would be easy to blame it on the guys, but what I’ve learned from my experience is that I am the one who brings the trouble upon myself. I want who I want at that moment, and I don’t really care what happens as long as I get the guy.”BAT-Single-Cover-Art-300x300 RAPHAEL BRINGS TROUBLE TO THE DANCEFLOOR AND THE BOXING RING WITH “BOYS ARE TROUBLE”
The music video for “Boys Are Trouble” takes place in a seedy fight club. We see Raphael, trying to escape his loveless and abusive relationship with  Cash, the rich and violent fight club organizer. He finds solace in a boxer named Max, a loser with a winning heart. “Being in an abusive relationship in the past, I felt it was important to show how domestic violence also exists in LGBT relationships, which is something that is rarely discussed.”
Raphael chose to cast male models for the music video as a nod to Friday Night Throwdown, New York City’s true life amateur boxing matches that pit male models against local boxing talent. He picked  Taylor Harris, who plays Cash, for his irresistibly dangerous looks and William McLarnon, who plays Max, for his boy-next-door qualities.
“I’m fortunate to always find the right guys for my videos.  It’s finding the right ones off-camera that gets tricky,” he laughs.
Raphael was born in New York and raised in Miami Beach, listening to ‘90s pop and Miami hip-hop.   He describes his style of songwriting as stream of consciousness and views his songs as a representation of himself as a person and an artist.
In his music, Raphael aims to bring back the love. According to the young singer, most songs today emphasize independence and an “I’m too cool” attitude towards romance. He misses the desperation and vulnerability in songs from the past where vocalists unapologetically gushed over someone.
He calls his upcoming album, “The Dark of My Mind”, his journey through modern love set to sexy, moody trip-hop and electro-pop sounds that are at times ethereal and dreamy and at other times flow over the listener with a wave of sexual urgency and romantic longing. “It’s about those things that you tuck in the back of your head and you don’t necessarily want to talk about or want people to know,“ explains Raphael.
“Boys Are Trouble” is his first song to be remixed for clubs.  “I felt a remix was needed for those late night seductions on the dance floor,” he says, adding,  “When I heard Joe Gauthreaux’s remix of Justin Beiber’s “Boyfriend”, I knew he was the perfect remixer for the song. He brings a hypnotic feel to his remixes that works perfectly for ‘Boys are Trouble’.”
“Boys Are Trouble” is streaming now on Spotify and is available for purchase on iTunes. Raphael’s debut album, “The Dark of My Mind,” releases soon. For more information visit www.officialraphael.com.
