A resident of Hudson Falls, New York, TR Remsen collaborated with Frank Palangi and other artists to create the album, "One Life To Live." He bills himself most of the time as a folk rock musician. It is a mix of contemporary rock to blues, with some interesting instrumentation, storytelling and raw performances.

Released: 2011 tr

Label: Self Released 

Produced by Frank Palangi

All the songs were written by TR, as well as the art and CD/cover design. The LP was recorded at Palangi Studios, in Queensbury, NY.

TR Remsen performs as a solo artist at shows. He integrates lead vocals, harmonica, percussion, shakers, bell, piano, synthesizer, and digital pipe organ for instruments in studio, Frank Palangi performed guitar, bass, drums, and supporting vocals on "Deal With The Devil." and other various instruments in studio.  Cory Avon played lead guitar and bass on the track, "Adirondack Christmas," in studio as well.

My favorite part of this record was the harmonica.  Keep up the good faith with that harp, no doubt. "Deal With the Devil," featuring Frank Palangi, offered an intro to this has a bit of tongue and cheek, much like, Sympathy For the Devil, from The Rolling Stones, but then he tears into a ripping metal song with some harp back up. "Dreams of Love," brought on deep vocals with high metal edge guitar. "South Street Blues,"  had some raw harp and the rambling bass line, mixing it to an almost blues number.  The vocals can come down a bit, to run along with the theme of the song, but it's good to keep the blues alive for sure.

He recently announced he is working on a new single, again with Frank Palangi, "Holy Lord." (2012).

Tea For One - Post Your Favorite Song.

The only thing better than "Runnin with the Devil" from Van Halen is "ERUPTION"!

Or maybe, "Little Guitars?"

"Mean Street?"

What is your favorite Van Halen song??

"Romeo Delight?"

Nobody walks the streets at night like me!!!

I caught Van Halen twice with David Lee Roth back in the 1980's. I didn't get behind VH when Sammy Hagar was the front man, so when David Lee Roth joined the line-up in 2012, I was happy to get this footage from the rock fans' favorite video man, Front Row Dave!

~From Their Biography

Manila Killa began in late 2009, as an artist who was interested in dance music and the culture that lied beneath it. Since then, he has grown to learn the ways of producing and performing dance music for crowds in the US as well as his homeland, Manila in the Philippines. His passion for music as a whole, has prepared him to understand what people want to hear in any kind of setting, as his diverse track roster has proved him worthy of understanding many genres of dance music. His move to the Philippines in 2009 transformed his views on the culture, as an influx of so many different genres were presented to him by friends and other artists alike. This has shaped the way he views dance music today, and will pave the way to his future musical endeavors.
