Larchmont, NY, United States, 2010/07/27 - West Avenue Records is pleased to announce the release of singer and songwriter Michel Nappi’s music video for “Save the Night in a Bottle,” the second single from his lauded debut album, Here We Go Again.
Filmed during the summer solstice on the South Shore of Massachusetts, “Save the Night in a Bottle” was directed by Jim Sass, a filmmaker from Boston. Sass has won numerous awards including Best Drama for his recent short, That Good Night, at the Campus MovieFest Northern Regional Grand Finale, which is associated with the Tribeca Film Festival.
Since the release of Here We Go Again, Nappi has been building a strong and burgeoning following. And he's doing it grassroots-style - winning over fans, peers, and music executives alike - one by one, song by song, show after show. “Michael Nappi is the perfect mix of old-school artistry and a fresh, new sound,” proclaims Lynn Hoffman, the host of Private Sessions on A&E.
Nappi first gained industry attention with his single “7:26.” The support of his local New York Triple A radio station, 107.1 The Peak WXPK-FM, led by Program Director Chris Herrmann, set him on his way to becoming a bona fide contender in today’s competitive radio market. The song further earned nationwide airplay at many stations including WSRS-FM in Worcester, MA, KBAC-FM in Santa Fe, NM, KCLC-FM in St. Charles, MO, WEXT-FM in Albany, NY, WSGE-FM in Dallas, NC, WOCM-FM in Ocean City, MD, and KZZO-FM in Sacramento, CA.
Armed with radio support and a music video for “7:26,” directed by Jimmy Ienner, Jr., former Video Director at Sony BMG Music Entertainment Inc., Nappi embarked on an East Coast tour, playing notable venues from New York to Nashville and landing several morning television appearances including NBC Philadelphia, FOX Connecticut, and FOX Atlanta.
Here We Go Again was produced by Steve Buonanotte, mixed by Grammy Award-winning mix engineer Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews Band), and is available on iTunes and Amazon.com.
Tour dates booked in the Tri-State area through August. National fall tour dates to be announced.
