The indie band, Mick Watley, returns to live shows to promote their first album, titled “Who is Mick Watley.” The answer to that question gets easier every day. Mick Watley is an independent rock band quickly moving in the right direction.
Formed in the summer of 2011, Mick Watley (Chris Martin & Eric Martin on guitar, Andrew Calise on bass, Billy Siciliano on drums, and vocalist, Erica Vasaturo) began by playing the local scene of their native Staten Island, winning for staten island in 2012’s Battle of the Boroughs, but in no-time they were moving across the bridge to greater visisbility. They appeared in Brooklyn’s Trash Bar before heading into Manhattan, appearing at Bar East, Village Lantern, Arlene’s Grocery, and many others, performing their hit singles, “Sin Is In” and “Change My Mind.” They performed at major events like the ING NYC Marathon and out-of-town at the Rock & Ink Expo at The Sherman Theatre in PA.
Now they’re back with their first album.
“We wanted to start the promotional tour where it all began,” says guitarist Chris Martin; “we’re thrilled to premiere songs from our first album here” Erica Vasaturo, the band’s lead singer, added. Ms. Vasaturo is a professional singer in her own right, having appeared in concerts and productions.
