Wikkid Starr release new single “Out In The City”
Wikkid Starr consisting of band founder and lead vocalist Toney Richards, guitarists Michael Rodd and Kyle Kaye, bassist Marcello Berwart and drummer Joe Rokker have released a new single “Out In The City.”
The group’s Biography on its website indicates (with slight edits):
“Wikkid Starr was originally the creation of Toney Richards and Ashlyn Childs but due to unfortunate circumstances (the sudden death of Bill Krodel and Childs leaving for personal reasons), the project was in jeopardy of never reaching completion. A determined Richards made sure that all of the hard work that was put into the project was salvaged. “People need to hear this music- it ROCKS” was how an excited Richards described the material.
In April of 2015, Richards hired public relations consultant – Lucas Gordon (an expert in the South American market) to help with a promotional blitz.
In the summer of 2015, Richards took the Wikkid Starr show on a promotional tour of South America traveling to three countries – Argentina, Uruguay & Brazil.
The “Collision Course” CD was released in Buenos Aires, Argentina on July 31, 2015 – a whole six months before the American market and the rest of the world got to hear the debut release on January 29, 2016.
Richards decided to make Wikkid Starr his solo project and returned to Argentina to do three shows in Buenos Aires in May of 2016.
Maria Fernanda of Kashmir Press was responsible for putting together the Argentine version of Wikkid Starr which featured Marcelo Viera on lead guitar, Riny Di on bass and Carr Jam on drums. It also featured special guests: Cristian Pueblas (lead guitarist for Jax) and Hernan Chaves (owner of Chaves guitars).
The highlight of the three date tour was performing together with fellow American Jeff Scott Soto at a sold out Roxy in Buenos Aires as part of their Glam Nation Party.
The successful campaign in Argentina opened up other opportunities throughout the South American market, which now includes: Brazil, Peru and Chile. There is also interest from Europe, Canada and Australia.
Stay tuned to see where the band will be performing next. Keep coming back and checking the website for updates but most importantly, now more than ever – Never stop rockin’…!!!!”
The single “Out in The City” can be purchased via CD Baby’s website.
