Carmen Magro paints a story with every song and delivers it with passion and energy that music fans of all ages enjoy. His music is truly original and crosses between Americana country and rock as melody and rhythm marry with his words perfectly. Every instrument enhances musical feelings without compromise.
Carmen played many instruments as a child never being formally trained. His mother gave him a drum set for his 14th birthday and he was on his way to stage performances. After losing his father when he was ten, the passing of his mother when he was 19 really hit him hard and influenced every part of his life. Remembering his mother's influence to do so, he began writing music at the piano and has not stopped since. He continues to learn multiple instruments and shares the stage on piano and guitar as he fronts his band singing his original music. His band is loyal and committed to Carmen and his music as they never ask for anything and go anywhere with him. Currently, they are a 7 piece band including guitars, drums, keys and piano, strings and saxophone and a multitude of hand instruments that come alive on stage. Only recently did Carmen begin studio recording after finding a veteran producer, Arty Skye in New York City. His debut album is expected to be released in Spring 2013.
His single 'America' was featured in his debut video produced and directed by Anthony Werhun with 23rd Letter films just released and now on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zc-yrt8S7o.
Several of his singles are now being aired on internet radio stations in the US and England and on local radio stations in the Philly surrounding areas. As of yet, his music has not hit mainstream radio. Carmen distributes his music under his own label "Carmen Rose Records" named after his father and mother who he thanks for leaving him with a humble nature he never ignores or takes for granted.
Carmen's music carries dynamic and passionate melodies and lyrics that resonate for many causes. Most recently, the inspiration of a little girl from Clearwater Florida named Olivia Scheinman and the efforts of her family prompted him to write his song 'I Am Hope' with its message to never give up hope no matter what the challenge. Proceeds from downloads of 'I Am Hope' at http://getconquer.com/carmenmagro are going to the Livy's Hope organization for their efforts to help others in need. Special thanks goes out to Conquer Entertainment and Market America for helping with these efforts!
