The album features the songwriting talents of Candido Bretto, a local musician, and former Plymouth resident. Candido is a bass guitarist and background singer with Johnny Drama and his Funky Entourage from A&E’s reality show Wahlburgers. The reality show Wahlburgers co-stars Plymouth MA native Johnny “Drama” Alves. Alves generously offered his private studio affectionately called “The Funk Lab” to record the student’s voices in two May 2019 recordings sessions. The album also features the orchestration talents of recent Berklee College of Music graduates. From South Korea, Haegal (Joongwon) Hwang, Sowon Lim and JongHa Kang. From Japan, musicians Yuki Kodama on acoustic bass and Yuki Monolog Kanesaka and Yohei Kambe on drums. “An alumnus of Berklee College of Music myself, I felt a special bond with Hwang, Lim, Kang, Kodama, Kanesake, and Kambe. Musically we all spoke the same language.”-Candido Bretto
Also featured on the album is renowned NYC jazz guitarist Rick Howard. Click here to hear Rick’s new album “Lil’ Noir”. “Rick Howard was a great find in Naples, FL. I needed a guitar style with “special sauce” and I found it in Rick.” -Candido Bretto
