Edgy, Entertaining, Infamous
"unique and very original sounds"
Naiz Denae was born in an adobe hut in a place called Hanger Lake in Dona Ana county New Mexico. He cut his teeth in a blues band called the Housecats playing the college and biker bars that support the local music scene in Tucson. As a wild land firefighter in the northwest he was afforded long periods of time in the off season to write, perform and mold the sound that has become uniquely his. With an ironic medley of musical heroes like Tom Waits , Van Morrison , Hank Williams III and James Brown, it’s no wonder that Kanye is the most frequently queued artist on his iPod. Go figure !
Continuing to gain momentum in Santa Fe with his project Rhythm & 53rd, the timing could not be better for the release of his debut album “Infamy” recorded at Frogville records. This album is best categorized as party music or tank tops and flip flops. With mind bending horn lines and smooth funky melodies not unlike some cake songs we all know, but definitely influenced by the slightly more edgy Sublime hits, this album is impossible to sit still to. Powerhouse vocals dominate a very tasty soundscape and offer a solid signature forging the common thread needed to bring together a rich texture of very original sounds.
