artist Alexa Vetere to release debut album Breathe Again produced by Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron
New York, New York – April 6, 2012
On Friday April 13th, NYC rocker
Alexa Vetere will
release her debut 8-song collection Breathe Again,
with co-writer and producer,
Guns N' Roses guitarist
"Breathe Again is a journey," says
collective tale of some the most trying times that
everyone goes through - death, love, confusion - that
made me feel like I wouldn't get through it and
represents the aftermath - that first breathe when you
realize you will."
The journey began years ago when her father took
to watch a local band in New York City. She hears all of
her favorite music she grew up with - Queen, Aerosmith,
Kiss - sung and played by
'Bumblefoot' Thal and friends. She then told her dad "I want to learn
to play guitar, just like him, from him."
Two weeks later
'Bumblefoot' Thal has her in his
studio playing guitar until her fingertips were black,
teaching her vocal and writing techniques, listening to
Blondie, Sex Pistols, Muse, Courtney Love, and busting
out demos of songs every day. Days become months, demos
become album tracks, rehearsals become gigs in NY and
LA, years of living become lyrical depth. Now in her
early 20s pursuing her medical Masters Degree, she
shares this chapter of her life in her debut album.
Featuring dueling guitar work from
her previously released title track Breathe Again
held #1 position in Rock for over a year, nearing
4 million plays on ClearChannel's New Artist charts.
Alexa and Breathe Again were nominated by All
Access Magazine's 2007 Awards for Best New Artist, Best
Songwriter and Song Of the Year.
Her eight-song collection will be available on iTunes
and other digital download stores April 13th 2012.
