You simply can’t argue with the list of legendary artists that the members of Radio Exile have either performed on stage or in the studio with – Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Hall and Oates, Allison Krauss, Billy Idol, John Waite, members of Pink Floyd, Styx, Journey, Van Halen, the Rolling Stones, and Black Sabbath. And working with these renowned names has obviously rubbed off on their sound, as evidenced by the unmistakably classic rock sounds heard throughout their self-titled album, and their recently released video, for the track “No Pity on the Highway”: https://youtu.be/e2v3WDQLCXk
Charlie states, “‘No Pity on the Highway’ just kind of captures that great classic rock sound of the late 70’s, with Dave’s Bonham-esque intro and Kenny and Jimmy’s great guitar riffing.” Chandler adds, “It makes you feel as if you were rolling down the highway, so the lyrics kind of developed out of that, but kind of taking on life as being the highway that you are travelling down.”
Comprised of members Chandler Mogel (Lead and Backing Vocals), Charlie Calv (Piano, Keyboards), Jimmy Leahey (Guitars, Backing Vocals), Kenny Aaronson (Bass), and Dave Anthony (Drums, Percussion, Backing Vocals), the group has enlisted the help of such studio vets as Grammy-nominated engineer/producer Steve DeAcutis (Vanilla Fudge, Cyndi Lauper, Corey Glover, etc…), producer/A&R man Steve Lunt (Britney Spears, ‘NSync , Joan Jett ,etc…), and mastering engineer Alan Douches (Fleetwood Mac, Yes, Train, Pete Townsend, etc….).
The music press has already taken a liking to this fast-rising band. Undoubtedly, the praise will soon translate to connecting with the rock masses, and Radio Exile’s self-titled debut is the perfect introduction.
