What a thrill it is to find the rare combination of seasoned professionalism and youthful exuberance all in one package. Creating music with Jacyn and Peter was all that and so much more. The outcome was equally thrilling. Great chemistry here.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 04, 2015
#LaLaLaLove, produced by renowned producer/songwriter Anthony Resta, who has worked with legendary artists such as Elton John, Collective Soul, and Duran Duran, is an edgy song about the reckless and whimsical feeling of falling in love.
Venus Mars Project is an original, high-energy, power pop/rock band with a unique, edgy sound from two skillful musicians of diverse melodic backgrounds. Influenced by the classic rock edge and a modern pop sensibility, Tremblay and Tentindo have come together from their respective sonic realms to create a truly unique and thought-provoking musical experience.
"What a thrill it is to find the rare combination of seasoned professionalism and youthful exuberance all in one package," says Resta. "Creating music with Jacyn and Peter was all that and so much more. The outcome was equally thrilling. Great chemistry here."
Tremblay and Tentindo, both natives of Danvers, Massachusetts, first met when cast together in an original rock horror musical, Scary Mary and the Audio Corsette, for Salem’s dynamic Halloween season of Haunted Happenings. Their serendipitous connection sparked a musical relationship that combines the rawness and unpredictability of the rock world with the glossiness and catchy hooks of the pop world.
Tremblay, a singer/songwriter, is best known as a member of the Boston-based female pop/r&b vocal quartet, Jada, which, at one point, was signed with Universal Motown Records and saw several international hit singles.
Tentindo is a professional guitarist, singer/songwriter, session musician, and teacher, who has opened for nationally respected acts like Alice Cooper, Heaven & Hell, and Queensryche, and was the backing band leader for Jimi Jamison (former lead singer of Survivor.)
"Venus Mars Project is a natural progression for us as artists and a culmination of our respective musical experiences," says Tremblay. "For us, it’s all about the love of our craft, the unwavering dedication and passion we have for making music, and the joy we bring to others by living our own joy. It’s a special kind of bliss."
#LaLaLaLove comes off the heels of another song they released earlier in the year called Not Gonna Stop Me Now, which was mixed by producer/engineer Bob St. John, whose credits include Extreme and Dokken. The main theme focuses on not allowing others to get in the way of achieving your goals, with the chorus being a positive declaration about never backing down from a challenge. St. John describes the song as "brilliantly crafted power pop with a positive message.” He adds, “One listen and I was hooked."
Their other singles include Hands of Time and Jump In, both mixed by Kenny Lewis of Mixed Emotions Music. Both songs have official music videos that were produced by friend and supporter, Ben Consoli, owner of BC Media Productions, a Boston-based, award-winning film/video production company.
All the songs written by Tremblay and Tentindo reflect the signature positivity that is a staple throughout their body of work. Using music as a creative outlet and reflection of their personal lives, much of their subject matter comes from shared experiences that are relatable to everyone.
Jordan Rich, radio talk show host at WBZ Radio of Boston, enthusiastically sums up the relentless appetite that Venus Mars Project has for creating and performing music: "Peter and Jacyn have what it takes – superb musicianship and tremendous passion. One really gets the feeling that they’re having a blast. And guess what? They are."
Venus Mars Project is hard at work on new material to release in 2017. They are slated to perform at several premier venues around Boston and across New England. Recently, they opened for the Gin Blossoms, Starship, and the legendary Jacksons on their 50th Anniversary Tour. They also performed for two nights at the famous Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casino. By year end, they plan to begin showcasing for record labels and private investors.
