Yossi Sassi Band Roots and Roads Album submitted for Grammy Review.
I was thrilled to be able to submit one of my favorite artist Yossi Sassi and his Band for Grammy consideration for his album Roots and Roads, I really hope you take the time to read the entire post right here and yes I finally have my replacement CD that I had to submit to Grammys but this one is much more special with a message from Yossi, now time to take it on a road trip ! The band is on tour and you can find out all the details on the band's main site.
Anis and I have been working closely together with creating the vision for his social media sites, I may create and manage the many sites while he focuses on the more important use of his valuable time of making music for all of you but trust me Anis is very involved and cares deeply for his fans and is as active on the social media sites as time permit.
Would love you to check out his main site with so many nooks and crannies for Anis's and Myrath's fans and do sign the guest book as well read the latest tour photo diary when Myrath opened for Megadeth in Bucharest Romania.
Be sure to check out upcoming Myrath Tour Dates and Anis Jouini Official Fan Page on FB.
Working with so many dedicated musicians makes me realize how much time they sacrifice to share their art with all of us, it may appear glamorous and so "Rock n Roll" but they give up so much of time traveling , their personal life's and even money to fund their passion.
Being a full time musician is not for the faint of heart and that is why I give them so much respect and donate my time to few kindred spirits I have met on this road less travel I chosen for myself.
PS: My own main site Eva Dowd International has been totally been revamped hope you like the new look and you are always welcome to connect with me on FB or LinkedIn.

Being a new fan of Oriental Rock I am having a great time learning from both the fans and the musicians of the genre and I may I add interacting in emails with Yossi is a joy... the man is really uplifting and his message of Uniting the World through Music makes us kindred spirits :) but enough of that on to the just released video Palm Dance featuring Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal from the soon to be released album "Roots and Roads" my copy promised to be on the way, yes I not only promote but support Indie Artists, you can read the review here and even better support here , only you can keep Indie Music alive and well so support the artists you love and who's message speaks to you !
Many of you may well be familiar with Yossi Sassi pioneer of Oriental Rock but I was not and that is great thing about this virtual world it allows us to discover amazing established artists form around the World for the 1st time. Yossi was the co-founder of the well known progressive rock band Orphaned Land for many years before creating the Yossi Sassi Band more insights here on my finding about the man and his music.
I will be posting more updates on Yossi soon but lets start with his latest album Roots and Roads which you can preorder in advance of the late May release as well as his prior work and some very cool t-shirts with great imagery .So do check out the shop.
