New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
With 2020 square in the rearview mirror, Pittsburgh music veteran John Vento has kicked off the New Year with a new single and video. "No One Wears A Watch Anymore" is the third single from his year-long opus, Brick By Brick.
Once again Vento collaborated with his good friend and artist, Frank Ferraro. Vento says, "I came across Frank's lyrics quite accidently through an email exchange of some rough sketches that he was working on . The lyrics jumped off the page and I immediately asked for, and received permission to use Frank's words for a potential new song. I wanted to record a more upbeat groove type of song for my new project (Brick by Brick), and the line (No One Wears A Watch Anymore) was just the perfect hook for such a composition. Once I brought my ideas to guitarists David
Granati and Bob Zigerelli, things came together quickly. "
Ferraro adds, "I wrote these lyrics using metaphors, to reflect the chaos happening all around us in the world and to ask the question, 'Are we truly aware of the not so simple times we are living in and its consequences?"
"No One Wears a Watch Anymore" is released on MTS Records.
In addition to his solo career, John Vento fronts The Nied's Hotel Band, voted Pittsburgh's Best Bar Band in 2016.
