"US PRESS - I Am Entertainment Magazine (Review)"

Club America represents the great state of Sao Paulo, Brazil very well on their latest
release, "To Get There". On this 10 song album we get a hefty does of Club America's
very creative and fun sound that offers a vintage 80's pop-rock tone and is clear
evidence that Brazil has amazing music to go along with its beautiful beaches and people.

From the outset, Club America establishes their sound on the song, "We Need No One".
This track has a very Brit-pop/rock feel that is reminiscent of artists like Sting and the
Police, or elements of the band, Oasis. Club America takes their own journey into the
world of impacting the lives of music lovers with this awesomely produced and well
performed song. I could definitely hear this one in a few movies.

On their song All The Things I've Done, Club America adds a tint of hip-hop flavor to the
color of their To Get There album. All The Things... features Texas based hip-hop artist,
Da Deputy, who is a real problem and we'll be keeping a close watch on this guy. This a
great collaboration, kinda how dope Lincoln Park & Jay-Z's collabo.

Other cool songs on To Get There include: "For All That I Am", "Blueberry Kiss", and
"Stranger In My House". Each of these tracks continues to brand Club America's sound,
making them an easy fit for any international music festival. I would definitely recommend
checking this out if you like good, fun music.
