Capsicum’s SAL ANTHONY debuts Reggae/Pop-Funk/Smooth Jazz


 Sal Anthony




Ever since the release of Capsicum Records LLC’s inaugural “Reggae-In-Fusion Album #1”, recording artist-writer-producer-arranger Sal Anthony has been steadily building momentum among fans of his creative mix of Americana, rockabilly, and blue-eyed soul with Caribbean rhythms. His remake of the James Otto hit “Just Got Started” built an indestructible bridge between the fans of those genres in the U.S., Jamaica and worldwide.

                                                                    

Now his new single, "Talkin' To The Wall" adds the flavors of yet two more genres to the crossover mix, pop-funk and smooth jazz. Penned by Anthony, Capsicum CEO and Director of A&R Roger Meltzer and his mentor at Philadelphia International Records, Bruce Hawes, and produced by Meltzer and Osborne "Ifield" Joseph, the track again features the incomparable Derrick Barnett on bass, plus the grainy wail of Elan Trotman on tenor sax.

Renowned Nashville musician-producer-engineer Terry Wendt heard the pre-release cut, and wrote: “Well, if that ain't the groovin'-ist tune I've heard in forever!! This is a HIT! I can so clearly see and hear the message and vocal - it’s simply awesome :)” tkw

Wendt should know a hit when he hears one. He’s the author of The Early Days, an autobiographical book about the inner workings of Nashville's music business for the last 25+ years, having worked on stage playing pedal steel in bands or in recording studios with many of the greats, including Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl, Jimmy C Newman (Grand Ole Opry), Tom T Hall, Carl Perkins, Tanya Tucker, Merle Haggard, Jeannie C Riley, Ty Hearndon, Jo Dee Messina, Loretta Lynn, Kenny Chesney, and Tim McGraw.  In 1993 Shania Twain hired Wendt as her band leader/pedal steel guitar player and road manager.  Wendt was also the first to record Peggy and Patsy Lynn (the Lynns, daughters of Loretta Lynn), and bring them to Martha Sharp who signed them to Warner Brothers- Nashville.




Sal recently signed a non-exclusive music licensing deal with Munchkin Studios, who represent various music libraries, and provide comprehensive music services for film and network productions, including NBC, Fox, MTV, Warner Brothers as well as for background music supplier Muzak.  Songs included in the deal initially included “Born on Third Base”, a song Sal co-penned with Meltzer and recorded for the label by the red hot Cuban Cohiba, and “Just As I Am”, another co-write with Meltzer, as well as with Joseph, and Misteree, who also performed the song, and for which she received a nomination for the "2011 Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) Best New Female Artist".  Meltzer and Joseph co-produced both reggae crossover hits.


The deal was then expanded to include four other Anthony-Meltzer titles from the inaugural “Fusion Album #1”:  “No Better Than I” recorded by Sledge, “Exactly” and “If You Really Wanna Know” recorded by Anthony, and finally a reggae cover of “Life’s Too Short” recorded by Mayyah Stuart’ and which Anthony and Meltzer co-penned with guitar wizard George Zeigler.


Said Aimable, "If You Really Wanna Know" sounds like Reggae Gone Country. However, the lyrics are well-constructed with a catchy chorus.  With such an upbeat tempo, this tune will rip the airwaves from the very first note.  The vocal quality sounds great and there is no doubt that this tune is destined to rock you off your feet while you sing along.
