Up and coming local rock star Frank Palangi is set to have an awesome year music-wise, and he is starting it out with a new year's teaser that is sure to get fans riled up with anticipation. Read on to find out what it is!

If you're unfamiliar with Palangi, you can read more about him via an interview with Q103 here. He is basically a solo artist bringing new music that is a creative sonic blend of rock music that remolds his sound, thought-provoking lyrics, while offering great melodies and arrangement for the modern audience. He is from Queensbury, and has played pretty much every venue within 50 miles of Albany. His fresh ear and sound are promising, and everyone who listens to him seems to fall fast. He even has his own Android app.

Early this year, record producer Rob Coates and his team in Nashville, Tennessee will be unveiling the title of Palangi's next rock single, which is to be called "I AM READY."

Palangi executive produced the single and has written this material which moves him toward that mainstream audience style and sound. Assisting on the track is former rock band Pillar drummer Lester Estelle.

 It's a kick ass rock track with feeling, raw ambition and not a cookie-cutter formula. Comparable to current mainstream rock. It's being recorded like the latest Foo Fighters album with that old school feel that gives it warmth and like you're right in the room listening to the whole band, Palangi says.

Currently, Rob Coates is producing, mixing, and engineering many local, indie, and major projects. With over 15 years of engineering, he has had the honor of working with clients and colleagues on projects including artists, bands, producers, engineers, musicians, and labels such as Warner Music Group, Sony/BMG, PBS, David Archuleta (American Idol), Brad Noah (Disciple), Traa Daniels (P.O.D.) and more.

Right now, Palangi's debut "EP"- five-track album is selling on Itunes, Amazon and more. Work produced by Rogers Masson, and assisted by Grammy-nominated rock band "Day of Fire."

Lastly, Palangi is in the running to play live at this year's Grammy's in Los Angeles which air February 12 at 8 pm. You can vote for him here starting January 17th and ending the 23rd.

The full song will be available on the Internet on March 20, and will be coming soon to FM radio.
