Shadow & The Thrill featuring former Great White bassist Tony Montana unveil video for single “Crazy”
Shadow & The Thrill consist of the duo of ex-Great White bassist and current Jack Russell’s Great White rhythm guitarist Tony Montana and drummer Brentt Acrement, and they have released a video for their single “Crazy” from their debut album Sugarbowl, which will be available on August 14, 2020.
Unleashed Music‘s press release indicates (with slight edits):
“Shadow & The Thrill, the modern blues-infused, groove-laden, hook-filled, melodic rock band from the streets of Los Angeles and New Orleans, bring you songs of salvation to soothe the soul! Their incredible new rendition of Gnarls Barkley’s, “Crazy” off of their debut album, Sugarbowl, is no exception.
Shadow & The Thrill is Tony Cardenas-Montana from Great White, who is also a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum, Billboard-charting writer and musician along with Brentt Acrement, a much sought-after touring and session drummer and producer. Together they have created a musical experience that rivals their iconic rock and pop influences.
Cardenas-Montana says, “I love this song and wanted to cover it from the first time I heard it. Gnarls Barkely’s vocals mesmerized me. My impression of the song was that it was about depression. I related to it in that way, having dealt with that illness myself since I was a teenager. I let the re-arrangement and treatment ideas gestate for years. Finally, this blues groove and feeling took hold and it just kind of flowed out. Recording this was an emotional experience for me as a vocalist and guitarist.”
“Crazy” was mixed by Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of A Down, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, The Black Crowes).”
