A&L is back with their 6th single – Living the Dream, a Pop/Punk radio-friendly track “The current state of our cultural climate has been one of vitriol and aggression”. They also topped the European charts this winter.
Living the Dream has very little overdubs or audio processing. Basically, what you hear, is what was performed in the studio. Everything was done in very few takes. “This is another Casuccio written song will get you singing along” Says Lana Marie. This song is a melding of pop vocals with Punk rock guitar tones. “We had the opportunity to play this song live a few times and that really added to the recording”. Playing on team A&L is drummer Rich Smith who has played on the previous three A&L releases and Matt Sunick who nailed the bass part on his first take in the studio.
A&L is made up of two seasoned industry professionals that are not letting age slow them down. Both in their 40s’ they are making their “Rockstar” dreams a reality. A&L is Anthony Casuccio and Lana Marie. Anthony is a 20 year music veteran whose production work has been nominated for three Grammy awards, been featured in major music publications and topped the music charts. Anthony’s received RIAA certified gold records for his production work. Lana is an award-winning vocalist who has been a long-time force on the NY music scene and voice to many jingles on radio and television. Matt and Rich have rounded out the band and A&L is looking forward to big things this winter with a new release.
Although both have worked in the music business, neither has released original music before creating A&L. They have released five singles over the past two years and an EP. A&L has received radio play in over 70 countries. Their last single Singing My Life Away, released this winter of 2017, peaked at #3 on the Euro Indie Music Top 200 and was on the countdown for over 3 months. It is their third song to make the top 20. Their videos have topped various popular video platforms.
