Little King Rocking More Than Two Decades, Back With New Music
The El Paso music scene is always spawning new bands, talent & new releases. Some of the artists making new music have been around for over 20 years. For example Little King.
Little King have been releasing music since 1997, consisting of Ryan Rosoff on guitar/vocals, Manny Tejada on bass/vocals & Pissing Razor's drummer Eddy Garcia. To stay creative after making music for over 2 decades, in Ryan's words, he stays creative by a drive to "leave a lasting legacy of music and words, because I literally make up songs in my head all day (ask my kids), and I love the challenge of trying to complete the puzzle of each album. The creation of an album from scratch is a formidable undertaking. The artwork, the players, the words, the music, the equipment, the recording/mixing/mastering process, the promotion of the dream...it's all so challenging and complex. For me, the completion of that, and this is the 7th time since 1997 that I have completed a project, is the ultimate satisfaction of both hemispheres of the brain. It's a matter of organization and skill and project management while undertaking a creative endeavor that is literally from my head."
Little King will be releasing their 7th album, "Amuse De Q" on 9/3. The music video for the first single "Keyboard Soldier" came out today as a direct "response to what I witnessed in 2020 as the pandemic gripped the country at the same time as George Floyd was murdered, the election raged, and our country was unraveling at the seams. I think "Keyboard Soldier" is accessible while still being fairly challenging and complex, and that's what a good LK song is supposed to sound like. It's a good pre-cursor to what people will hear on the rest of Amuse De Q when it drops on 9/3/21, but this is by far the most angry and political song on the album".
Ryan also went on to state that there will be another video dropping on 8/6 before the album drops on 9/3. You can hear Little King on Q Connected, Sunday nights, 10 pm to midnight. If you're a local artist, you can also submit your music HERE or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
