Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
In the game of dirty money sometimes all bets are off, but in the game of 'Kiss & Tell' it's 'all in' for WIN! San Francisco's own Win Marcinak has taken on the daunting task of covering one of pop icon Bryan Ferry's most famous tunes, 'Kiss & Tell,' now impacting the airwaves. Ferry is one of the most treasured British acts to come out of the eighties music scene and is still highly revered worldwide. With a vocal that successfully tackles the thought-provoking subtleties and nuances 'Kiss & Tell' is meant to convey, WIN delivers, selling the song's story with a modern telling. Adding to the track's exposition and drama, 'Kiss & Tell' also features vocal powerhouse Exposé diva Gioia Bruno.
"Like many Bryan Ferry fans around the world, I've always adored 'Kiss & Tell' for its deep melodic darkness and bold commentary on money, power and prestige. Performing 'Kiss & Tell' is like taking my audience on a voyage and bringing them into another dimension," stated WIN. "To be able to record this single with the support of so many talented musicians, especially Gioia Bruno, is a dream come true. I look forward to putting together my second album over the coming months and experimenting more with my own original works and collaborations."
Taking an unexpected turn, WIN's 'Kiss & Tell' vocal runs into a head-on collision with Gioia Bruno's new sultry rendition of 'Money Talks (Dirty Cash),' resulting in a steamy-hot tête-à-tête. Masterfully woven together by producers Josh Harris, Jake Benson and The Perry Twins, the two storytellers' dynamic voices unleash their lyrics upon each other in a one-of-a-kind transformational experience. The colliding tracks create a unique musical sensation that is undeniably compelling and provocative.
"I was excited to do background vocals and ad lib for WIN on 'Kiss & Tell.' The project took on a fascinating new direction when I was approached to sing 'Money Talks (Dirty Cash)' so it could be meshed with the track," states Gioia Bruno. "I'll admit it was a thrill to sing it as I have always loved the Adventures of Stevie V. version. Approaching the vocal in my lower register gave it a much sexier vibe than the original. Personally, I've never been all about the money, like the title suggests, so my performance on the track is an irreverent interpretation."
Currently making an impact on national and international mainstream radio, with servicing by Radio Express, Promo Only and New Music Weekly, the original pop version is available for download and purchase at Perfectbeat.com and will soon be available online at iTunes, Masterbeat.com, Napster, Rhapsody, eMusic, and Amazon MP3 and Beatport.com.
Breaking out on dance floors in July, the 'Kiss & Tell' collision remix package is an electric hit-and-run musical escapade with heart pounding unique productions from Warren Rigg, The Perry Twins, Josh Harris, Dena Cucci, Jake Benson, and Mark Picchiotti.
