Evan Russell Saffer Releases Album "Neon Gas", Video For The Single Chemical Marketplace, Licenses Music To Sports Illustrated
Online PR News – 21-February-2011 – – Former Fixer frontman comes out of the basement after 2 years behind the scenes crafting the album he calls Neon Gas. From the grinding yet supremely danceable “Dream of Love”, to floor-it-with-your-head-out-the-window drug anthem “Chemical Marketplace”, the vampire obsessed haunting ode “With You Alone” to the sad but bittersweet optimism of “Just One Day”, the album as a whole reflects a poetic schizophrenia that somehow finds Beauty and the Beast inside Evan Russell Saffer. Dream of Love, With You Alone and Just One Day were produced by legendary producer David J. Holman (No Doubt, Bush, Adema) in Hollywood, CA. The remainder of the album was mixed by D. James Goodwin (Sleep Station, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, The Bravery) in Woodstock, NY.
Evan Russell Saffer's debut solo album Neon Gas chronicles the mind of the everyday maniac. He's got a prism of human psyche that tells a story, weaves you through the spiderwebs in his brain and on the tip of his tongue you'll find a shining key to the other side. Part tongue in cheek bittersweet humor, part matter of fact social circumstance, part lover, part dreamer, put in the rock opera blender and hit crush ice. “Neon gas is a substance that when you heat it up the molecules collide so rapidly they create a brilliant, sexy and electrified glow.....and if you inhale it it's deadly.” ~Evan Russell Saffer
In a category all his own, he's calling it Schizo/Rock Opera/Hobo Chic to reflect his mental state while writing the album, his musical twinings and hip meets hobo style. Evan has licensed his songs to Exposure: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011 officially released by Playstation Network, Just One Day appears in the indie film Chance Encounter by director David Toth, and ERS is currently a featured artist on ReverbNation.com. A video for the single Chemical Marketplace is streaming online. ERS is headlining the Mercury Lounge in New York City for his record release party on Feb. 25. He plans to take his full rock show across the country with national tours throughout 2011.
