Big congratulations to Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Capra, who inked a deal with Hollywood Records last week. The band has packed venues in Los Angeles like Viper Room, Key Club, Safari Sam’s, House of Blues, On The Rox and Green Door and are currently working on recording their debut album as we speak. Capra is managed by Andre Recke, who also represents Hilary Duff and Nikka Costa as well. Surely with Recke’s past experience and the sheer talent of the band, he can help mold them into a band that stands the test of time.
The signing was especially meaningful for Hollywood Records as the band’s lead singer Kelly Blatz also dubs as the title character in DisneyXD’s “Aaron Stone” TV show, which has proved to be one of the most promising shows on the young station. In a recent interview with the Malaysia Star, Blatz said “I spend as much time acting as well as doing music. I’m very, very passionate about that. We just got a record deal and hopefully have the record released by the end of the year. We’re very, very excited. It’s rock music, it’s fun and it caters to wide demographics. Hopefully, we get to reach a lot of people and you guys will get to enjoy it.”
We feel that this band has a massive chance of breaking worldwide, they are great live and have already laid down some amazing songs thus far. Only time will tell if the Disney/Hollywood machine can put them on the fast track to success; lucky for them they have some serious talent as not only a band, but also performers, one doesn’t have to think too far back to see how successful the aforementioned ‘machine’ has been with bands that had far less talent. Kudos to Capra and Hollywood Records!
