Rock en Espanol is alive and well, hot and tasty, and is coming to you fresh out of the new group, TAISEN. Taisen is an experienced band with a broad scope of sounds that cover a range of genres but all with hard-hitting guitar rhythms and intelligent, catchy lyrics. Antenna Earrings, an indie label out of San Diego, California, is releasing the new album by TAISEN - 'Es Beibii'-- this December, 2002.' Es Beibii' has 10 original songs that rock, at times hard, at times jazzy, but there's no doubt this group Rocks!!! The hit single, 'En Tu Nombre', touches a deep, sentimental chord while still pulsing out a funky, danceable groove. The second single off of 'Es Beibii' - 'Es Por Ti'- blasts hot guitar stylings that are clearly Santana-esque, along with vocals that suggest Brazilian roots. The group's founder and song writer/composer, Javier Lorenzo, has been at it for 20years. His Mexican roots bring tremendous richness to the soul of the music. Javier admits a passionate love of the music of the 60's and 70's, too, especially the Who. Latin music and the Brazilian classics are also heavy influences that he continues to mine with the help of the band's singer, his wife, Michele. He's had three of his songs: 'Oceano', 'Es Por Ti' and 'En Tu Nombre', played on the hottest rock-in-Spanish station in Southern California, MORE FM (98.9 Tijuana, Mex.). And now that the CD is released, he plans on making TAISEN's presence known in the clubs and live performance venues of Southern California. The partnership Javier has established with steamin' hot lead guitarist, Lance'Chema' Jacobson is solid gold. Chema brings a wall of screaming, flaming talent to the music with his versatile and mega-multidimensional guitar interpretations. Chema was a main part of the brains behind the recording operations, too, on 'Es Beibii'. With these two experienced artists at the helm, the TAISEN ship is capable of reaching other solar systems! Seriously. The rest of the TAISEN band are Ed Simms on lead vocals and backing guitars, and, on violin, Trisha de Luna- rockin' steady!
