ARRIZZA - 10th Anniversary Edition

 

At long last, the 10th Anniversary Edition of my original debut album, is now available on all online music stores and streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music. This re-release features all 14 songs from the original album, completely remixed and remastered with a much improved enhanced sound quality. You will hear little surprises and additions here and there that enhance the sonic listening experience. It will sound clearer, more dynamic and more balanced.

 

If you enjoyed the original, this will be a treat for the ears! - LISTEN NOW ON SPOTIFY, APPLE MUSIC, TIDAL AND MORE!!


On March 23, I joined the world in observing this year's Earth Hour. In celebration of it, I performed an hour set of live music from my home studio (to change the scenery a bit). Here is the edited version of the livestream with yours truly peforming my originals plus a few well-known covers from the Gipsy Kings, Al Marconi and Paco de Lucia. Enjoy!


MY LATEST COLLABORATION - ABU SIMBEL

Recently I collaborated on a new track by Spanish guitarist, Mark Barnwell (https://www.markbarnwell.com), called Abu Simbel, a song from his new album, “Ventura”. On it, I perform a riveting solo on Greek bouzouki which added the right amount of mysticism and allure to an already pristine track. A wonderful Middle Eastern-tinged number that will make your toes tap!

ASTRONOMIA - OUT IN STORES 

 


My newest concept album, Astronomia, is officially available! I am very happy with how it came out and am excited to share this new suite of new material with you all! With this latest musical project, I explore deeper themes starting with the wonders of space full of fresh otherworldly sounds, pulsating sequences, infectious rhythms and solid basslines. For those who are fans of Jean-michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, and Tangerine Dream, you will not be disappointed!
 

 

Astronomia is Arrizza’s second synth-based Electronica album to date. Travel the cosmos with these 11 inspired musical pieces that will take you on an interstellar journey amongst the stars: from the mysterious opener, Occultation, to the exhilarating dance number, Across the Galaxy. Featured guests include U.K. based guitar extraordinaire, Mark Barnwell and American Metal guitarist, Brian Schurr on electric. Get ready for launch - Ad Astra!

 

 

As the new year begins, a couple of exciting new things to announce! You may have noticed a few features on the website that have been added on or upgraded (such as the new twitter and newly-optimized "shows" widgets). These are some of the small incremental changes that will be gradually implemented on the site as new features will be added little by little. Striving to make things a little more interactive for the visitor, plans for the upcoming months include: a new separate personal blog to be called, "Arrizza's Journal" which will be updated periodically, with personal entries that will present a more intimate and personal side - "the artist-behind-the-music" sort of speaking. Another blog with inspirational quotes will also be online, featuring numerous archived sayings from some of the wise men and women around the world who have inspired with their powerful words. And the newsletters that are sent out periodically will also feature a little "quote of inspiration" on the bottom of each one, with aims of inspiring others!



In the "Media" section, several bonus clips will be added including some unreleased material that was recorded several years ago that hasn't been shown to the public, so watch this space for those!


MUSIC UPDATES: Well the first leg of 2016 is already starting to pick up, as I have recently been involved with some exciting side projects that have been coming to fruition, including a collaboration with local L.I. Progressive Metal/Rock group, "Hypocritical Oath" - assisting in the production of their first EP, as well as laying down some electric guitar (a first for me!) - It should be rather fun!

In addition, I will once again be co-collaborating on two songs with U.K. Spanish guitarist, Mark Barnwell (www.markbarnwell.com) on his upcoming new album, Mandala, featuring some of the best top-class musicians around! - Please be sure to visit Mark's website for the latest news...also be sure to check out his music as well!


Peace and Blessings,
Arrizza (Guitarra Arrizza)
