Los Angeles, CA, (PRWEB) December 11, 2009
Hotel Café Tour musical director, Jason Kanakis, has released an EP entitled, “Jason Kanakis and the Coalition of the Unwilling.” The project is a collaborative effort between Jason and fellow Hotel Café bandmate/producer Brad Gordon. The release includes 6 songs. The EP’s 4th track, “Anything” is a co-write with Blue Note recording artist, Priscilla Ahn, and features the haunting vocals of Laura Jansen. The release also features musical contributions from David Immergluck (Counting Crows, Jon Hiatt), Jon Flaugher (Joshua Radin, Ryan Adams), Justin Glasco (Jeremy Camp, Mat Kearney), Oli Kraus (Sia, Tom Mcrae), Mai Bloomfield (Raining Jane) among others.
Jason Kanakis is a Los Angeles based guitar player who has been making a name for himself working with artists like Cary Brothers, Joshua Radin, Sara Bareilles, Rachael Yamagata, Brett Dennen, Aqualung and many others. He is also the multi-faceted musical director and MC of the Hotel Café Tour where his irreverent introductions have become something of an institution. It was on the Hotel Café Tours where Jason Kanakis and Brad Gordon were inspired to start a collaborative writing and recording process with many of the artists they were working with. This eventually led to the making of, “Jason Kanakis and the Coalition of the Unwilling.”
“Jason Kanakis and the Coalition of the Unwilling,” is currently available on all digital outlets and is scheduled for physical distribution in 2010. For more information and upcoming dates, visit his Facebook Fan Page (http://www.facebook.com/JasonKanakisMusic ) or http://www.jasonkanakis.com
