Former Atlantic Records recording artist and frontman for the critically-acclaimed, chart-topping band Abuss, Adolfo Busillo, has unveiled a new project that he describes as “traditional rock and country music infused with modern pop elements.”
New Moon Rising (NMR), a seven-piece rock/country/pop band that incorporates traditional instrumentation (guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums) with unexpected elements, including BeatBox, banjo, electronic percussion, loops and harmonica, has released its debut single “No Regrets” on all DSPs with the accompanying video at
The single is the first from a new collection of songs that the group is currently working on and the one that they say epitomizes NMR’s formidable sound.
“No Regrets” also features NMR members Bethany Kazimir (Backup Vocals), Jasper Paciotti (Banjo, Acoustic Guitar, Bass, BeatBox, and Vocal Percussion), Pete DeSalvo (Drums and Background Vocals), and Bill Miller (Lead Guitar), and was produced by Busillo and co-produced and engineered by Eric Ritter at Windmill Agency. After the band recorded the single, they added the musical talent of Stephen Kazimir (Bass) and Scott Zimmerman (Keys).
To celebrate its debut, NMR has also unleashing an accompanying video that Busillo says was inspired by “reminiscing about his childhood and the sentimental feeling of being young and free without consequence.” Produced by Busillo with videography and editing provided by Christopher Rhatigan (@therhatigan), the video conveys a nostalgic and heart-warming message of living with “No Regrets” – a message that the band says needs to be heard, especially today.
Prior to forming NMR, Busillo was signed to Atlantic Records with his band BRS. He went on to form the commercially-successful band Abuss, with whom he wrote and performed the smash hit “Poor Days” (Daybreak) in 2015, which peaked in the Top15 at the AC40 format and went on to enjoy record-breaking chart activity on various charts ranging from New Music Weekly to the Independent Music Network.
