Nico Stai: 12 Thousand Years
Los Angeles based musician Nico Stai recently played to a packed house at Ghettogloss, an art gallery in the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles and the venue for the recent CD release of his sophomore EP, The Victory of Miss Friday: How to Bury Your Heart and the Five Songs You Died For.
Right on the tails of the Dead Pony EP, and once again pressing forward with the full band dynamic are Jeff Evans, Sean Stentz, and Josh Mervin – the talented musicians who helped Mr. Stai round out the tracks on this new release. Together they create a passionate collage filled with new exploratory sounds including the sounding of triumphant horns on the first single and lead-off track, Scream. We will be featuring that track on the website as well, so please do come back.
Nico has recently filmed a segment for the new WB music web series Rockville, CA, basically centered around a fictional club in Echo Park, CA – based off the local Echo & Echoplex venues. Nico Stai will appear as one of the artists performing at the club, surrounded on the network production slate by other great names such as Frightened Rabbit, Earlimart, The Broken West, Duke Spirit, and Bishop Allen amongst others. The show is being created by Josh Schwartz, who you may know from ‘The OC’, ‘Chuck’ and most recently ‘Gossip Girl’. The delivery date is Early 2009.
