Introducing a new breed of funk-rock electro-house, they are quirky and a little dirty: Welcome to the Boogie Warehouse…
Enter a world of juicy vocals, intriguing melodies, thick deep bass and pumping
beats all meshed with sizzling electric guitar. The Boogie Warehouse
sound blends authentic instrumentation & vocals with musica electronica.
Boogie Warehouse is not only a band but also a recording studio and of course a place to let loose & rock out. Their debut release “Boogie Warehouse (E.P.)” is finished, hot off the press and ready to download.
Bringing much needed good vibes to a night spot near you, Boogie Warehouse have begun their assault on the live music scene with an onslaught of gigs and residencies lined up well into 2009. The group consists of Anton De Martino (Keys/Bass), Rick Hammond (Vox/Guitar) and Emma Leonard (Vox/Keys) and with this smorgasbord of talent, experience and creative flare, Boogie Warehouse are set up with all the ingredients for a sure-fire success.
Founder Anton De Martino has a diverse musical background: writing & producing songs, playing classic and jazz piano, DJing some of Sydney’s hottest nightspots, radio DJ for 99.3 Dance FM plus running a DJ agency and events business for many years. His creative urges led him to build his own studio and write the music that is now “Boogie Warehouse”. Anton’s unique style and energy is evident in all that he does, and is most clearly expressed through the Boogie Warehouse medium; fast becoming one of Sydney’s hottest songwriter/producers, Anton’s musical and production talents are becoming highly sought after by upcoming Sydney acts.
Rick Hammond’s extensive touring and studio experience bring great presence to the vocals, guitar, bass & drums he brings for the band. Rick brings the rock, with his previous efforts including LoKI, Sweet M16 (with Barney Bashir – DEF Fx) & Ghostwriters (with Rob Hirst – Midnight Oil & Rick Grossman – Hoodoo Guru’s) having schooled him with the ins and outs of the Australian music scene. Rick’s passionate vocals nurture emotions while eliminating fears, dynamically delivered with an unmistakable power.
Emma Leonard is a singer and keyboard player with a soul-warming sound drawing on her vast experience within the entertainment industry. As well as recording and jamming with Boogie Warehouse, Emma has spent the last few years working as an actress in film, television, theatre and voice-overs. Her broad vocal experience and amorous aura bring the finishing touches on this masterpiece of fun and good times: her smoky, sexy vocals bind Boogie Warehouse tracks with a lace of love.
Boogie Warehouse have achieved early recognition as an emerging act – before the release of their debut E.P., they’ve been placed as finalists for the song “Inside My Head” and runner up for “On Top” in the respected Singer/Songwriter Awards organized by UK artist development group “We Are Listening”. The have also been nominated for the dance music category in the Hollywood Music Awards 2008 for the song “On Top”.
With the release of their debut singles “2000” and “Lonely At Night”, dance floors are buzzing with their saucy blend of pop. Boogie Warehouse is out now through Blue Pie for the world to hear. Check out the shop, hit download, get down to the Warehouse!!!
