A&L is the melding of 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. Lana is an award winning vocalist who has been a long-time force on the WNY music scene and voice to many jingles on radio and television.
Her stage presence gets people on their feet and singing along.
We researched the current top 50 hit songs and realized that almost all of them had no guitar. Our goal is to bridge the gap between good guitar-based songs and popular music.
The past two years have included various live shows, radio interviews and features in leading music publications. Their songs have been in rotation on over 50 radio stations both terrestrial and internet based all over the world. Their videos have been featured on top video sites. A&L’s last two songs have charted in Europe. Hot Mess reached #78 on the Hit-Tracks Top 100 based out of the Netherlands and #46 on the Euro Indie Music charts.
A&L’s their third release Hot Mess is an upbeat, pop/rock song with catchy hooks and killer guitar riffs. The in-your-face vocal will have you singing along. “We wanted to rock out a little harder on this release” say Casuccio. Hot Mess takes a comedic look at the various characters (some unwanted) that you often interact with at a bar or club. We are sure that you will recognize these misfits that Lana sings about.
We both have laughed at our experiences playing live music in various venues and the crazy people that we see. I figured that everyone could relate to this song.
