Nappi To Rock Boulder
Michael Nappi to play FMQB Triple A Conference in Boulder, CO
[USPRwire, Sat Aug 01 2009] West Avenue Records is pleased to announce that Michael Nappi will be performing at this year’s FMQB Triple A Conference in Boulder, Colorado on August 5th.
Nappi is a New York-based singer/songwriter gaining national exposure with “7:26,” the single from his debut album, Here We Go Again. He is thrilled by the invitation from Jack Barton, FMQB’s Senior Director of Triple A.
“Playing Boulder is a dream come true,” Nappi says. “I’m honored to play alongside so many great musicians and to share my music with the industry so intimately.”
For 17 years, hundreds of artists have vied for the opportunity to play Boulder’s renowned Triple A Radio Conference. Triple A Radio, also known as Adult Album Alternative, is the musical format that broke acts like the Dave Matthews Band and introduced John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Matchbox Twenty, Coldplay, and David Gray to radio. The conference gives radio programmers, music executives, and local audiences the chance to hear both up-and-coming and high-profile acts alike.
Nappi’s grassroots support has grown steadily in his Westchester, New York community. But it is the passion and commitment of the local Triple A radio station, 107.1 The Peak WXPK-FM, and Program Director Chris Herrmann, that has set Nappi on his way to becoming a real contender in today’s competitive radio market.
“Michael writes one heck of a song and performs it just as well,” Herrmann says. “The production on Here We Go Again is fantastic and most definitely has major label finish. “7:26” is already reacting with our listeners. It easily keeps company with the rest of our mix and is chock full of hooks and memorable melodies. We're excited that a local guy has given us a song that we wouldn’t be at all surprised to hear on one of the big NYC stations soon – in fact, we’re anticipating it.”
Produced by Nappi’s friend and co-writer, Steve Buonanotte, and mixed by Grammy Award-winning mix engineer, Jeff Juliano, Here We Go Again is on a roll. With over twenty-five radio stations spinning Nappi’s music nationwide, it’s safe to say the “Love & Nappiness” is spreading. Even 42BELOW Vodka is creating a signature “Love & Nappiness” cocktail which will premiere at his Boulder performance.
“Anyone who will be in Boulder for the upcoming FMQB Triple A Conference would do themselves a favor by seeing Michael Nappi perform,” says Jim Nelson of A Taste of Triple A. “Listening to the high-gloss, übercatchy, melodic rock & roll of Michael's debut release, Here We Go Again, it's no stretch whatsoever to imagine that fans of Matchbox 20, Five For Fighting, and Train will fall head over heels for this New Yorker. “7:26” and “Miserable” are the tour de forces on an album stuffed with strong songs. You’ll find a copy of Here We Go Again in the bag when you check in at the convention, and for my money it’s worth the time to check it out!”
“7:26” will impact Triple A radio on August 17, 2009.
