Bio

Mutli-Platinum recording artist MARCY PLAYGROUND exploded onto the music scene with the insanely irresistible hit single “Sex and Candy”, (a-then-record) fifteen weeks at #1, and a self-titled debut album that sold 1.7 million copies.
Other hits include: “Saint Joe On A School Bus”, “Punk rock Superstar”, and “Deadly Handsome Man” Their 2009 fourth album, LEAVING WONDERLAND…IN A FIT OF RAGE, is armed with songs born of an intense and turbulent period in the life of MP's main man, singer/guitarist John Wozniak. The band’s newest release, INDABA REMIXES FROM WONDERLAND, launched Sept. 28th and marks the first time an entire album has been produced exclusively using crowdsourced remixes. Eclecticism has been Marcy Playground’s signature and they have always operated outside the musical fashion of the day, giving their songs a timeless feel. So what are you waiting for? Here's a Playground and a Wonderland that demands exploration.

MARCY PLAYGROUND ‘TO BE RELEASED SEPTEMBER 28 BY CAPITOL/EMI

CD and Digital Album Features 13 Crowdsourced Remixes from Indaba Music

Hollywood, California – August 25, 2010 – Marcy Playground are excited to announce the September 28 release of their forthcoming album Indaba Remixes from Wonderland by Capitol/EMI. Indaba Remixes from Wonderland is a new CD and digital collection of remixes from the band’s 2009 critically-acclaimed album Leaving Wonderland…In a Fit of Rage. For the release, the band partnered last fall with the top online destination for music creation, Indaba Music, to offer fans the opportunity to put their own stamp on Marcy Playground’s songs by remixing them. The band then selected their favorite mixes, from hundreds submitted, for inclusion on this special release.

Marcy Playground frontman John Wozniak comments: “I wanted to make this record to show people what the online music community is capable of. I believe the talent reflected in these tracks speaks for itself. This community is thriving. It’s thriving because musicians feed on inspiration they get from other musicians. Music is not meant to be a solitary endeavor. It’s something we like to do with other people. But maybe you live in a remote part of the world, or have problems with mobility because you’re physically disabled, or have severe social anxiety, or simply can’t find other musicians in your locale who share your musical interests. Indaba side-steps these limitations, giving musicians all over the world a way to get together and create anyway, which is revolutionary. “
Indaba Remixes from Wonderland marks the first time that an entire album has been produced exclusively using crowdsourced remixes from IndabaMusic.com’s worldwide community in which the winners will receive royalties from album sales. The mixes were judged by the band, with the prize being the opportunity to have the winning entries included on the album.

“Marcy Playground was very forward-thinking in the planning for Indaba Remixes from Wonderland. Their faith in the independent music community’s ability to deliver was well founded, as evidenced by the overwhelming response,” said Mantis Evar, Co-founder and EVP, Artists & Community of IndabaMusic.com.

Wozniak continues: “Before the contest started, most of us expected to see between 50 and 100 remix submissions, which is still a lot of music. But we underestimated. By the end, members of the community had submitted some 337 individual remixes, amounting to over 20 consecutive hours of music. Not only were we overwhelmed by the response, we were impressed by the multitude of musical directions and interpretations in different musical genres. It took a lot of time to judge the winners because every single submission deserved consideration, and multiple listens. I kept notebooks filled with observations in order to keep track of what I liked and what I didn’t. Eventually I whittled those 330 down to about 60 of the best remixes, and then took that list to the band. The guys helped trim those 60 down to 30. But then we had to get those 30 down to 13, and that was painful. Those 30 finalists were all outstanding. At the end of the day, everybody put so much love into their remixes, I’m just thankful to have had the opportunity to experience them all.”
