It was just over two years ago already that I reviewed the self-titled debut from RIFF ROCKIT, the multimedia, kindie alter-ego of Evan Michael. In that time, the project has grown, and now it's time for Michael (a leukemia survivor) to give back, with the release of his first Spanish-Language album, LUZ VERDE VAMOS! All proceeds from the sale of this new record (out June 17) will benefit the blood cancer research efforts of BE THE MATCH.

Review: Mariana Iranzi - HOLA HELLO

Hola HelloThere's a lot to love on HOLA HELLO, the latest release from New York-based songwriter/bassist MARIANA IRANZI. The Argentina native has assembled a multi-national crew of co-conspirators and guest musicians for her 13-song, family-friendly set. Players and collaborators from the USA, Uruguay, Panama, Portugal, Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Belgium, and Israel are all represented alongside Iranzi, who carries the flag for Argentina (and for rock).

It was almost exactly one year ago that LUCKY DIAZ AND THE FAMILY JAM BAND released their critically-acclaimed album, A POTLUCK, which I reviewed here on The Rock Father. Now, kindie rockers Lucky Diaz and Alisha Gaddis have prepped their first Spanish-language album, ¡Fantastico! just in-time for Cinco de Mayo. ¡Fantastico! (out April 30) is their Greatest Hits in Spanish. Check out the tracklisting below...
