About this Kickstarter project

Screenshot 2016-06-10 16.37.44AZM making an album!

I’m Angel. We are finalizing an 11 song Adult Alternative Pop Rock record featuring a power pop version of the Freddy Fender Hit, “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights.”

This album is the culmination of several years spent developing and perfecting 10 original songs and arrangements, and with your help we can launch this record into the world!

Who is Angel Zuniga Martinez?

I started my art as a love poetry writer and playing left handed acoustic guitar since 3rd grade at El Jardin in Brownsville, Texas; and have been writing songs, singing, and playing in groups ever since.

Who is involved?

Felipe Garcia – plays percussion on most of album and supports live performances.

Kyle Smith – played bass guitar on album

Robert Jericho – music producer / sound engineer / and lead guitarist on album who has worked with many local San Antonio groups and recently release his own solo project.

Maya Alicia Chavez – sings backup vocals on album

Bene Medina – played accordion on “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights” on album

Peter Bawa – plays bass guitar live with Angel

Chevon Carroll – sings backup vocals and keys on live shows with Angel

The Recording

I am humbly proud of the fruits of our labor of an almost finished, high quality product, which reflects how insanely blessed I am to connect with folks like Felipe, Kyle, Robert, Bene, Peter, Carroll and all the other talented, creative and hardworking musicians that have helped make this record possible and perform with me live.

What will we do once the Angel Zuniga Martinez album is finished?

I have been dedicated to music and art since almost my conception, and I am very invested in the success of this record and its message.

I will send the finished project to various music reviewers, plan a tour that will help promote the record, and more.

Our goal is to raise only $1,120, and we need your help!

We are already in the midst of making this record a reality, and while I have been able to afford most of the financial burden myself, there are still many outstanding costs, including:

  • final studio / engineering fees
  • musician, mechanical and streaming licensing fees
  • mixing/mastering
  • CD printing
  • publicity and promotions
  • first video production of “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights”
  • all the other bells and whistles that go along with a project like this.

Any donation will help us out – I hope you will consider contributing, today!

Risks and challenges

Although there may exist unforeseen risks and challenges for completion of this project, all the 11 songs on the album have already been recorded, mixed, mastered and the uploaded content is pending final approval for printing and duplication at Disc makers, an established full service CD replicator.

The indie music video for the Wasted Days and Wasted Nights single of the album is more complicated and filled with higher unforeseen risks; however, Angel has produced and directed over 100 quality short video productions on a shoe string budget.

ANGEL RELEASING MUSIC ALBUM FEATURING FENDER HIT

Angel Zuniga Martinez Record takes Rock turn on Freddy Fender’s Wasted Days Wasted Nights

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: For more information contact: A. Martinez (210) 704-7416 zunimarmusic@gmail.com

AZM cover artSAN ANTONIO, Texas (June 9, 2016) – San Antonio based Adult Alternative Pop/Rock artist, Angel Zuniga Martinez (AZM) announces the release date of Saturday, July 9, 2016 at the BANG BANG Bar for their 11 song, self-titled sophomore album.   To be released on indie label, Zunimar Music, the album of 10 original songs penned by Martinez finds good direction at Robert Jericho Recording. Notably, the AZM release will feature a power pop rock version of the Freddy Fender hit, Wasted Days and Wasted Nights, with an added third verse. Angel’s former musical projects have found support from notable producers Mitch Easter (REM, Wilco, Let’s Active) and Don Coffey Jr (SuperDrag). MEDIA IS INVITED TO REVIEW THE ALBUM AND CATCH THE BAND LIVE ON JULY 9, 2016 AT 10 P.M. AT THE BANG BANG BAR LOCATED AT 119 EL MIO DR., SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS 78216. (Live show will include special guests Remanon and the Robert Jericho Band.)

“Before I moved to San Antonio, I had the opportunity to connect with Freddy’s surviving spouse, Vangie Huerta, and learn the history of the song ‘Wasted Days’…the story motivated me to write a hopeful third verse and give it a beat…and as a proud Tejano and Latino, I also feel a pull to support Freddy’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame,” said Angel Zuniga Martinez.

Fender, born Baldemar Huerta in San Benito, Texas, is credited with being the first American Hispanic Rock & Roll artist in Anglo Latino Music History. The multi Grammy award winning artist was also the first Mexican-American artist to crossover into mainstream pop and country music, and with introducing Tex-Mex music into the American and World music scene. Fender died on a Saturday in Corpus Christi on October 14, 2006, with a desire to the first Latino to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

AZM’s melodic, radio-friendly style is supported on the album by the Lovers consisting of Felipe Garcia (drums), Kyle Smith (bass), Maya Chavez (background vocals), Bene Medina (accordion) and Robert Jericho on lead guitar and music producer duties. Live shows will include Peter Bawa on bass guitar and Chevon Carroll on backup vocals and keyboards. The emotive baritone singer’s solo debut album “The Cage” was released February 2010 at the Bijou Theatre in Tennessee.

“When my boyfriend and I first heard Angel Zuniga Martinez mixes on Soundcloud, we were like, ‘that’s totally legit’…We would not have guessed this came out of SA. San Antonio won’t expect this sound. It gave me that same vibe as the Red Hot Chili Peppers…and, the lyrics have meaning. You have to dissect them ‘cause they’re not that simple…they have depth,” said Chavez, recent UTSA graduate and backup vocalist on the album.

Martinez departed a Knoxville based Brit Powerpop outfit, Angel and the Love mongers, of some accomplishment, starting anew. The Lovemongers were set to embark on an East Coast tour after their appearance at the 2007 Bonnaroo Music Festival helped them crack the CMJ top 200 with their 2007 release The Humanist Queen, produced by Easter, the former Let’s Active frontman who produced R.E.M. records in the early ’80s. Angel, a Texas A&M graduate and fifth generation Tejano from Brownsville, Texas, moved from Tennessee to San Antonio end of 2011 to pursue a communications career. The songwriting and music was rebirthed in SA.

AZM launched a Kickstarter project on June 9th to help support some of the cost of the new album and the music video for the first single, “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights”. To support, visit the project URL:
