Ashland, MA, April 18, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Busker, a Boston-based band, has released a new song, “We Run,” dedicated to all the runners of this year’s Boston Marathon and honoring all of those affected by last year’s tragic events. “We have so many friends and family who were directly impacted by the events of that day in April last year. In this song we wanted to reflect on those emotions but also highlight the resolve of a great city to band together and move forward,” said band member Kevin McGuire.
Busker has been recording and performing throughout the northeast for over a decade. The original trio of Paul Dubanowitz (guitar/lead vocals), Kevin Bannerton (drums/percussion/vocals) and Chris Telep (guitar/bass/vocals) is now joined by Paul Kezmarsky (lead guitar) and Kevin McGuire (keyboards/guitar/vocals). Several of the members of the group met years ago at Villanova University. “We have been fortunate to be able to maintain such a great friendship and spirit of collaboration through our many years of performing and recording. Our music brings our friends and families together so it is something that has taken on a new dimension in recent years,” said Paul Dubanowitz.
Today, the band has embraced a philanthropic component to their performances, often affiliating with charities or fundraisers for each of their shows as a way to draw attention to a wide range of causes. Chris Telep commented, “We can use our platform as a way to bring people together and raise awareness about important causes, events and charitable organizations. It makes the whole musical experience that much more rewarding.”
“We Run” is a triumph of technology and logistics for the band. “I laid down the initial blueprint of the song and it really resonated with the rest of the guys as they crafted their parts,” said Kevin McGuire. With band members, Paul Kezmarsky, living in Mahwah, NJ and Kevin Bannerton in Darien, CT, the band recorded their individual tracks remotely and shared audio files as the song took shape. Paul Dubanowitz and Kevin McGuire reside in Ashland, MA and Chris Telep lives in Billerica, MA. The band is extremely proud of this group effort.
