Pleroma has it all: drama, emotion, moving power ballads, captivating lyrics and catchy rock songs with just enough dark edge and pop hooks to ensnare new fans… Emotionally draining yet beautifully arranged. Sharp yet delicate. Raw yet soothing.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
NYC based progressive rock ensemble, Vajra, let the cat out-of-the-bag on their Facebook page announcing their “secret” show which will take place today, Monday November 1 at 9pm at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn.
The show is sponsored by ReverbNation, Knitting Factory and Jagermeister and will follow a panel discussion on music licensing. The panelists include: Robin Joseph (La Ti Done Music), Samantha Cox (BMI), Erik Masone (Deep Freeze Music, and Simon Perry (Reverbnation Licensing). The event was created to help musicians and industry professionals learn about what resources they have, and how the music industry is growing and how artists and venues are finding ways to align themselves with brands.
Vajra is quickly generating a buzz after selling-out their first show in November, 2011 (at The Bowery Electric in NYC). Virgin America selected Vajra’s single “Erode The Will” for their In-Flight Entertainment Series in December, 2011, and the single was also selected for the Red Gorilla SXSW 2012 Compilation and the Go-Girls Music Fest 2012 Compilation. The Band also was selected as a Supercuts Rock The Cut Ambassador. The band has played to sold-out audiences at: The Bowery Ballroom (NYC), The Mercury Lounge (NYC), The Bowery Electric (NYC) and also performed 2 shows at The Red Gorilla Music Festival and the Texas Rockfest down at SXSW 2012 and completed a successful West Coast tour in Summer 2012, performing at Sylvia Massy’s 4&20 Blackbird Music Festival, The Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco and The Roxy in Los Angeles. Vajra also just signed licensing deals with Viacom, The Discovery Network, Showtime and Bravo.
Vajra continues to capture the attention of magazines and music blogs worldwide after the release of their debut album ‘Pleroma’.
“Pleroma has it all: drama, emotion, moving power ballads, captivating lyrics and catchy rock songs with just enough dark edge and pop hooks to ensnare new fans... Emotionally draining yet beautifully arranged. Sharp yet delicate. Raw yet soothing. Symphonic rock with an eastern twist, at it’s most elegant level. Vajra’s Pleroma is simply superb!” – Rick Jamm, Jamsphere Indie Music Magazine
"I instantly fell in love with this release. There are just some albums that send a chill up your spine and Vajra’s debut Pleroma has achieved this effect. Everything about this album is fresh and exciting. I live to experience music of this calibre. Vajra’s musical career is just the beginning, and I have a feeling that their future work will be awe-inspiring." – Trystan MacDonald, Lithium Magazine
“[I]f you’d like to lose yourself in rock-induced hypnosis, let Pleroma be your invitation.” – Sara Latourneau, Sonic Cathedral Magazine
“As I played Pleroma, the shadows in my den shifted. The grass in the back yard began to hum a blue/green low rumble. Each song on Pleroma has its own life and color and ripples across sand mountains to orca-filled seas.” – Lisa Waugh, Skallywag Magazine
