Rise of the Rock Shamans
Forever Town is electrifying anthem rock from San Marcos, TX. The righteous, soul-heavy hooks and triumphant delivery of the Rock Shamans features frontman Danny Ram, "The Torch" on lead vocals and guitar; Jay Bones, "The Lion" on drums and Valentin Mora, "The Medicine Man" on bass. Hearkening back to the Head Bangers Ball era of MTV, Forever Town brings to mind the sound and spectacle of bands like Kiss, Motley Crue and Ozzy Osbourne while possessing a distinctive American down south flavor. Brothers, Danny Ram and Jay Bones have merged their love for the pomp and regalia of yesteryear with their own brand of metallic riffs and mother earth wisdom. Tough enough for metal heads, yet soulful in it's classic rock swagger, the band's full length debut, “Players and Dealers” was recorded at Austin’s famed Bubble Studios by Grammy nominated producer, Chris “Frenchie” Smith (Santana, Jet, Toadies, Scorpion Child). With tracks like “My Clique,” “Ride That Thunder” and “Hot On the Heels of What's Real,” Forever Town hails itself as the musical messenger for the tribe of Rock Eternal. Clearly, a visionary cast of iconic characters has come to wield the torch for rock n roll.
