Torin Muccino began playing guitar and writing songs when he was 16 years old. Now 21, the singer/songwriter musician is breaking out in 2018 with his first album, “For the Times,” to be released Oct. 9.
With a wildly eclectic and inventive approach to indie/rock, Muccino’s vibrant melodies and arresting, sincere songwriting is a mix of pure passion and soul … and skill. Through insatiably cool rhythms and grooves, to heartfelt atmospheres that have genuine emotional weight, “For The Times” is a debut album stocked full of tunes that resonate right inside our very core. The lead-single “No More” made its debut online in both audio/video this month.
A native Mainer, Muccino grew up in a music oriented family in Bath and Wiscasset. He was exposed early on to a plethora of music in all forms/styles/genres, including his father Chris Muccino’s band, Liquid Daydream, and more recently, Endless Interstate.
Throughout the years, Muccino became inspired by various bands and artists - Cage the Elephant, Portugal the Man, Alt-J, Elliot Smith, My Morning Jacket, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. This, along with his own growth/experiences into adulthood, allowed Muccino to cultivate his authentic approach to songwriting, creating his own explicit signature sound.
Craving artistic adventures and broadening his life experiences, Torin decided to travel across the country late summer 2017 ready to explore other realms of creative expression. Shortly after settling in Austin, Texas, Muccino landed a role in a Los Angeles-based music-video shoot. The excitement had barely ebbed before another door opened and he landed a role as an extra on AMC’s hit TV show “The Son.”
Spending the past year focused on writing, recording, and refining his music in the heart of Austin, Torin came out with a stunning lineup of tunes that fully represented him as the artist he’s meant to be.
Assembling the best of the best from his clever combinations of sincere Indie melodies, stylistic vocals, and rhythm-based approach to rock, he set his sights on polishing nine of his original songs to form his debut record dialing into the distinct sound that brands his individuality.
Torin Muccino’s CD “For the Times” will be available for digital download on Oct. 9 through iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Music Store, iHeart Radio, Slacker … to name a few… If you prefer an actual copy, get one through CDBaby in October (or November). The single “No More” is already digitally available.
Just confirmed: the CD release party will be held Friday, Nov. 2, 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. at The Old Goat in Richmond. Torin’s opening act: Caleb Jones of Driving Charlie Home.
