JOHN TAGLiERi EMERGES ViCTORiOUS
AS ROCKWiRED.COM's ARTiST OF THE MONTH!!!
June 3, 2013 - The polls have closed for ROCKWIRED.COM's recent ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign. Voters from all over the U.S. made their vote count andJOHN TAGLIERI is ROCKWIRED.COM's newest ARTIST OF THE MONTH. For over ten years now singer songwriter JOHN TAGLIERI has built a career on a series of fine albums and exciting live performances on stages throughout the country. With his latest EP. SOUTHERN PARADISE, TAGLIERI comes off like a revved up JIMMY BUFFET with some tunes that are both celebratory and earnest - just the sort of combination that we have come to expect from TAGLIERI in the past decade or so. With a a little help from the Nashville production team of SEAN MORMELO and MARC COHN, TAGLIERI has created the feel good record of the year. The release will no doubt come in handy on one of those easy Sunday afternoons when you feel like driving to the beach. We could go on all day about the infectiousness of TAGLIERI's latest release but the career of this independent pop rock songwriter is just as much an inspiration as his music. In an age where the words "working" and "musician" used in the same sentence are going to get you laughed out of the room, TAGLIERI has proved to the naysayers once and for all that making music on your own terms and making a living at it is no impossible feat. TAGLIERI is now eleven albums in on the rock n roll dream. Clearly leaving that soul sucking day job was the right thing to do.RELATED LiNKS:
