DINO JAG “STRIPPED BACK”
International award-winning singer songwriter Dino Jag officially launches his critically acclaimed “Breakthrough” EP with a series of “Stripped Back” shows that will showcase his latest songs, along with some classic covers, with captivating soulful arrangements that also feature Virgil Reality on trumpet and Nick Romano on drums along with some very special guests.
Dino Jag has been a prominent force in the global pop rock scene and these past few years have been especially kind to him with tours and the chance to share the stage with some of the best in the business.
Nov 25, Dino Jag unleashed his ‘Breakthrough’ EP to critical acclaim. Recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood with Grammy Award Winning Producer Jeff Bova at the helm it featured some of the best in business, Aaron Sterling (Drums – John Mayer), Corey Britz (Bass – Bush), Tim Pierce (Guitar – Bruce Springsteen), Jeff Bova (Keyboards – Michael Jackson), Carroll Hatchet (Backing Vocals – Bette Midler) & Bernard Fowler (Backing Vocals – The Rolling Stones), were all involved in the recording of this Pop Rock sensation which has become a major milestone in Dino’s career.
The hype, up to and around the release of Breakthrough, was simply titanic. Impose Magazine wrote that Dino Jag, “possesses an appeal that is far-reaching and rather impressive.” The Big Takeovers’ review said “Dino Jag has clearly cracked the code for pop songwriting, and he winningly replicates this formula six times over the course of the simply enjoyable ‘Breakthrough’ EP.” Meanwhile, Obscure Sound praised his “Wide vocal range.” Celebmix was especially pleased with his work, going so far as to say “He embraces music to his very core and continues to shape his career while exploring new sounds in his own electrifying way. To become a true success, music has to be a passion not a chore.” Music Networks’ review of the single ‘You Make Me Feel So Good’ wrote, “Dino Jag truly feels like 2016’s equivalent of Steve Earl’s Copperhead Road, equalling passion with raucous guitar interplay”. Paste Magazine wrote “Breaking new grounds”. So in our eyes, Dino Jag is on a smashingly good path.
After the highly successful single releases of ‘Two Young Hearts’ and ‘You Make Me feel So Good’ and the follow up “Breakthrough” EP, Dino Jag is now set to deliver the music live with a series of dynamic ‘Stripped Back’ performances that will place a different spotlight on the songs and the live music experience.
“These shows are going to be highly charged with generous servings of soulful funk/rock” says Dino Jag. “I’ll be wielding an acoustic guitar and joining me on stage will be the highly engaging Virgil Reality on trumpet and Nick Romano on drums. It’s a very cool sound that exposes the heart and soul of the music in a way that’s intensely intimate, yet very dynamic and upbeat. It’s a great vibe. Plus, there’s gonna be some very special guests joining us. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
Dino Jag “Stripped Back” kicks off on Saturday 24th June at The “Norwood Live” Hotel with special guests Lazy Eye. Dinner and Show packages will also be available. Tickets available from the venue and MOSHTIX.
