Baton Rouge, Louisiana (PressExposure) December 30, 2009 -- Young R&B/Soul Artist Tino Tomas has released his new album âStay,â a fun Pop album that displays his excellent vocal range and makes use of several music styles, but primarily Pop, Jazz, and R&B.
âStayâ was produced by accomplished performer and DJ Claudio Mangione using Pro Tools, and contains fifteen songs, which includes the title track âStay", which is a smooth, slow, and soulful Pop tune. Other tracks include the more Rock-oriented (and aptly titled) âRock it Right,â the danceable and upbeat âHands Up,â and âDo It,â an interesting experiment in Jazz fusion. Tino's music comes deep from the heart, and his songs are all about emotions, whether they involve love, betrayal, or just being happy and having a good time.
At only 20 years old, Tino Tomas is an accomplished vocalist who has been a part of over three hundred performances since the age of 5, both in the states and abroad. He often performs in both English and Italian. He marks Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye, and Jackie Wilson among his influences. When he isn't performing or recording his music, Tino likes to indulge in his favorite hobby, playing video games.
Tino has received a great deal of prestige and recognition for his talent. In 2005, he was the winner of the R&B Division at Nashville Star Search. In 2006, he performed at Governor Bobby Jindal's inaugural festivities. In 2008, he was nominated for National R&B/Soul Artist of the Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards. Most recently, Tino was placed on the ballot for the 2009 Grammy Awards in a number of categories, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist.
Tino is currently performing scheduled shows to promote his new album, including a performance at the LSU Art Show on November 13. His new album âStayâ is currently available from CDBaby, iTunes, Napster, and PayPlay.
