Pop rock band Push Play signs with Wind-up Records – the Largest Independent Record Label in the United States
Push Play Signed By Wind-up Records, Whose Roster of Artists Includes Evanescence And Creed – Hannah Montana Star Emily Osment To Appear In Push Play’s First Music Video
It was announced today by Wind-up Records President, Ed Vetri, that pop rock sensation Push Play has been officially signed to the Wind-up Records label. Wind-up Records will release and distribute Push Play’s first major album Found in late September 2009. Push Play’s first single off the new record, Midnight Romeo, will be released to national radio in late July 2009. Feedback from the new single has already generated enough heat within the music industry that a Midnight Romeo music video is already being filmed and will star Emily Osment who is currently starring in The Disney Channel’s overwhelmingly popular television show Hannah Montana.
Push Play has accrued a massive following and fan base since their inception just three years ago. They are the classic garage band story whose four members started playing music together after school and on weekends in their hometown of Long Island, New York. Without any professional backing, lead vocalist CJ Baran, guitarists Steve Scarola and Nick DeTurris and drummer Derek Ries booked gigs in high school gyms, local malls and even major concert venues throughout the United States and managed to land a coveted spot on the Bridge to the Future float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade last November. Their online following is unstoppable; in fact Push Play’s MySpace page alone has generated close to six million plays and profile views. Push Play’s hilarious video clips are viewed by thousands regularly on their own YouTube channel and they are currently launching a ten webisode series based on their temporary move to Los Angeles for the summer which will air next month on pushplayrox.com and other teen sites including Bauer Publication’s j-14.com, popstaronline.com and on AOL’s music site. The well rounded group also has a commitment to charity that is unparalleled. Through their Push Play for Purpose campaign they donated over eighty performances to various charities including One is Greater than None, Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, Autism Speaks, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Multiple Sclerosis Foundation and The Susan G. Komen Foundation, to name a few, raising over $100,000!
“We have been closely keeping our eyes and ears on Push Play over the last year. They have done a tremendous job developing a committed and energetic fan base, built a strong net presence and have made several high profile appearances,” said Wind-up Entertainment President, Ed Vetri.
“They have and continue to write and record great pop songs and have become proficient in the song writing process.” Ed Vetri went on to say, “By joining forces with Wind-up Records, Push Play will emerge as one of the year’s strongest breakthrough artists and we look forward to working with Push Play to bring their music to the masses and to being there to support these young great artists as they fulfill their dreams.”
