PRLog - Oct. 11, 2012 - NEW YORK -- In a month, Jesse McFaddin will be releasing his first solo album. Jesse is the lead singer of the Japanese rock band, RIZE, as well as a member of the Hip-Hop collective, E.D.O. The rocker launched a unique project last year on November 11th to create an entirely collaborative or user-sourced album. Dubbed STAND UP!, the album began by Jesse releasing eleven sample stem tracks for users to listen to and remix as they saw fit. Once submitted, he chose his favorite version of each track and then worked directly with the remixers to develop the finished product. The result: an eleven track album that was developed completely in collaboration with artists and producers from around the world.
Listeners can expect to see a Jesse that explores his sound further than he has done before with RIZE or E.D.O. Also look for duet tracks with artists from the US and around the world. STAND UP! is due to be released on November 11, 2012. But for those who can’t wait that long, they can preview a sneak peek of the rough edit of Jesse’s track Bossman, which available on SoundCloud now!
