FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Emotive Explosions in Blastin’ Sounds! Harry Bates releases incendiary, intuitive and eclectic tracks. CINCINNATI, OHIO (11/07/11) – The Supreme Sounds From Blastin’ Sounds is the upcoming release from Cincinnati native Harry Bates. It is due out early in 2012. Also known as Blastin Sounds, Harry is releasing several tracks early – with good reason he explains, “I want to enlighten as many people as I can to the fact that they have the ability to change the world.” His tracks are filled with emotive explosions in Blastin’ Sounds. As both a songwriter and performer, Blastin’ Sounds explodes with original music that reaches out to a myriad of genres. Whether it is pop, top-40, soul or R&B, Harry’s music examines human rights and spirituality – all wrapped within a groove and theme that bows to something greater. “It’s all about a message,” explains Bates, “my music is art with a message.” Bates is a multi-instrumentalist and a sort of spiritual rebel compared to fellow artists. He is not your typical artist in music, message or meaning. The message in the music is peace … something that this Cincinnati native doesn’t see enough of in his cohorts. Within each track there is an explosion of humanity, a mixture of musical elements which include pulsating percussion, hooky guitar riffs, and layered vocals. “Everything is Coming Our Way” is a pop-based examination of the tipping point of the social upheaval and economic problems that face the world. Speaking of revolution and power of people, the composition echoes the fact that the world has turned away from God. Another key track is “The Fall” with an almost subliminal lyrical structure. “Every Knee Must Bend” resonates with Bates’ mantra of standing in awe of The Creator. Blastin’ Sounds received honors and recognition for a top 10 song from the IAIRA in 2010. He pushes into 2012 with a renewed confidence in his groove. “I want my music to touch souls and set them on fire.” Harry’s music is incendiary, intuitive and eclective – what else would you expect from Blastin’ Sounds? Look for the release of The Supreme Sounds From Blastin’ Sounds in 2012. CONTACT: Harry Bates BlastinSounds@Gmail.com 513-242-2082 ###

Bio

Blastin’ Sounds, also known as multi-instrumentalist and everyday musical genius Harry Bates, is an artist with a message. And, in contrast to many of his peers, the message this native of Cincinnati, Ohio brings is one of peace.

The idea that music can move you to make the world a better place is heard throughout the seven brand new tracks made available by Blastin’ Sounds as a follow up to his incendiary debut CD ‘Experience HB’.

Even on the two expertly chosen and performed covers - Bill Withers’ ‘Lean on Me’ and Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Fire’ - Bates’ own incredible musicianship, humanity and emotional power shine through like a beacon.

The lead single ‘Throw Down Your Weapons’ is a classic example of what Blastin’ Sounds is all about. His fusion of a soul temperament with rock guitar stylings is unique in the modern musical landscape. While the lyrics preach a simple message of tolerance that is yet to be heard in much of the worlds. It is a powerful and moving track, but also one that is as funky as anything you are likely to come across.

The same message of spreading love through joy and music can be heard in ‘Why Can’t There Be Peace On Earth’ - a track that, fittingly, Bates has issued as a free download from his website www.blastinsounds.com.

Another side to this multi-layered artist’s musical personality can be found on ‘I’m Still In Love With Y-O-U’ and ‘Are You The Angel of Love’; two love ballads showing the different sides to that most beautiful and sad of all the emotions. Both songs, lyrically and musically, are handled with aplomb by Blastin’ Sounds. While his funky, rhythmic abilities are perfectly showcased on the brilliant ‘Nile Moon’ - a journey through Bates’ musical heritage and on into the future.

Already a top ten artist, Blastin’ Sounds new collection of songs look set to propel him into the domain of the superstar. But if that happens, all he wants from that success is to be able to use that gift to help people.

It’s a noble ambition - and not one you hear from every new musician on the planet. You can only stand and applaud what Blastin’ Sounds - and his captivating music - is all about.

You have got to Hear and See, BLASTIN SOUNDS, HB is truly Blastin Sounds, with his music. His early influences, were Motown, Barry White, Rare Earth, also, Chicago and the Man with the Guitar, Mr. Jimi Hendrix.

His FIRST SOLO, release, entitled, "Experience HB", will be out this summer. The first single, will be "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby", a Love Song, about a man madly in love with his woman. "Groove To The Beat", is the second single release, Get Up Out Of Your Seat, and Dance To The Beat, it's a World Party. Ain't Too Proud To Beg, is the third single to be released, anyone who has betrayed their lover, can relate, that they are not, Too Proud To Beg, to obtain forgiveness.
The fourth single is: If Lovin You, Is Wrong, a married man is having an affair with another woman, even though he has a family at home. The follow up single is: Ain't No Woman, Like The One I Got, a man proclaims his woman, is above all other in this song, "I would kiss the ground she walks on". Blastin Sounds, brings down the house, with, "Who's Crying Now", you can feel the intensity of Blastin Sounds.
Transformation, (Blastin Sounds), is a jazz-fusion jam, with powerful rythmns, not heard of in today's music, the melodic tones and syncopation is vivid. Also, featured on the CD are: U and Me, Girl, plus You and Me, Together, both are love songs for the lover in you.
