Meet Cali Band RapScallions ~ Produced by Wendy Starland

Hey Texas!! Meet California based RapScallions; produced by Wendy Starland
Several years ago, I met (online) music songstress Wendy Starland.  Since then I've watched her works and seen her discover talent such as Lady Ga Ga... saw she was an established painter/artist and created a terrific organization called "Give Back Entertainment" where she serves as Founder/CEO.  When Wendy is involved with a project, you know it's quality and you won't be disappointed with the final product.

When I saw that Wendy was involved as the producer of the RapScallions, I had to take a look.  Nope, no disappointment here.  Hell, I'm fifty years old and love the sound, beats and attitude of this young, California based band.  I know you'll enjoy their work and you'll find yourself in sync with the lyric and beat.  Grab their new self titled CD which they just released on October 11... a great add to your party pack!!  Join the RapScallion Party Army and spread the word!!  These guys are going places!  ~Jeff/TOR

Here's some background info on the guys from their website 
and be sure and join the Party Army on their Facebook page.
 The RapScallions started dominating LA’s music scene with their signature sound and wild stage show, packing out shows at the Roxy, Knitting Factory, Key Club, Henry Fonda Theater, Exposition Park, fashion shows, and even performing at Red Carpet events. The band achieved local mass appeal and began opening for well known national acts such as Chris Cornell, Fishbone, English Beat, Mike Posner, Wu Tang Clan, etc.

After performing to crowds of over 10,000 people, the RapScallions caught the attention of several major companies and are currently endorsed by D’Addario, Evans, Planet Waves, Warwick, Spaun and Etnies shoes. Teaming up with producer, Wendy Starland (Lady Gaga, Moby, Wu Tang Clan), the band recorded a 4 song demo at Interscope Studios. Before even finishing the mixes of the tracks, the RapScallions were offered an independentrecord deal. Recently they were also featured in Music Connection Magazine's Top 100 Bands of 2010 list. With endorsements, sales, and massive shows under their belt, The RapScallions have already achieved what most artists do only after receiving a healthy budget. This band possesses all of the elements of success, 

maintaining both commercial appeal as well as a grassroots track record.

  1. I knew that the truth was on my side and I felt fortunate that the jury was able to see that. Rob and I made our agreement in 2005. We are now entering 2015. The journey has been a long one. My attorneys at Dunnegan & Scileppi did an extraordinary job at helping me reach this milestone. I am so thankful to them for making the Herculean effort that was required to win this case. It would be wonderful if the verdict helped other people to remember that agreements are enforceable. Do business with people who are worthy of your trust. Be the living example that your word is your bond. It’s a tough business and people need to be valued for their work.

  2. I had a specific agreement with Fusari before searching for the artist. He asked me to search for a female artist under the age of 25 who had the characteristics to be the female equivalent to the lead singer of The Strokes. Someone who was edgy, bold, energetic, confident. Someone you can’t take your eyes off of. That was Stefani Germanotta to a tee. I attended about 50 live shows and searched for over 8 months before discovering Lady Gaga and introducing her to Rob. More importantly, Rob had to approve the artist I found, so there is no question that it met his criteria. He stopped looking for The "Strokes girl" as soon as I brought him Germanotta and signed her to his production company. We wrote songs together and strategized about the project. I could not be more proud to have played a part in the worldwide success of Lady Gaga.

  3. Since the majority of music today is downloaded for free, I’ve noticed that fans want to learn more about the artist personally - their lifestyle, tastes, and opinions that go beyond just their music. Artists have the opportunity to further connect with their audience in this way by pairing up with brands that they commonly use in their everyday life. It works really well when the artist and brand genuinely love and respect each other’s talent, and this is definitely the case with Anna e Alex who have created exquisite and unique hand crafted jewelry.
