ROCKWiRED RADiO PROFiLES PRESENTS:
THE BLiSTERiNG SOUND OF SAL PiAMONTE
AND HiS LATEST CD LiVES iN DEViL CiTY
DECEMBER 13, 2011 - SAL PIAMONTE may hail from the same hometown as ALANIS MORRISETTE and his vibe may capture some of his homegirl’s rebellious fire, but “TAKE ME HOME”—the blistering first single from the Ottawa born singer/songwriter’ latest album LIVES IN DEVIL CITY—puts the listener square in the heart of Alabama and Louisiana, where soul-driven Southern rock reigns. As hard hitting as the tunes are, the multi-faceted, dangerously catchy 13-track set (which is bookended by a clever “BIG SLEAZY” intro and outro) isn’t simply about celebrating PIAMONTE’s diverse array of influences and the many ways, as he puts it, “Rock and Roll rules my soul.” DEVIL CITY is a hard hitting metaphor for a place where disillusionment reigns, the people you thought you could count on let you down and everyone’s in it for themselves. PIAMONTE’s task throughout is rising above. He’s seen the devil in a flowered dress (“WHATCHA SAY?”) but in this struggle of good vs. evil, he’s not giving up just because of a few setbacks. “I think the difference in the efforts leading up to my new record, and my new record itself, is that I became more confident and focused with my message, choice of lyrics and chord progressions, and honing my melodies,” he says. “For a long while, it was hard for me to balance my love for Top 40 music, southern styled rock and roll and soulful elements with my love for more straight up styled rock, I feel that a certain process was necessary to get to this point. I feel that rock allows me the freedom to express my message so as to maximize my positive impact on the world and the people around me.”
