Product Notes

Northern soul music has been the driving and motivating musical force behind this powerful vocalist since he was a teenager growing up in Cleveland Ohio in the late 60's. He has recently returned back home after living and performing in Las Vegas where he was privileged to work with some very talented people including "America's Got Talent" Winner, Michael Grimm. Abe Lamarca is also a proud member of the highly respected stable of singers and musicians often referred to as the "Crown Jewel" of  Las Vegas, Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns. Being the youngest of five siblings, Abe grew up on a steady diet of some sophisticated soul and jazz music well beyond his years. Influenced by Dinah Washington, Jackie Wilson, Dave Brubeck and Little Richard to name a few. He started as a drummer at the age of 11, but soon became a singer by default at 15 because as he puts it with a chuckle, 'Nobody else in the band wanted to sing or even touch the microphone in those days!' The height of his young career as a local singer was to land a huge gig with one of Cleveland's most memorable and popular horn bands, Rastus. It was at this time he was schooled by these older and hipper cats, most of all, tenor sax player, Vic Walkuski. 'Whenever you started to feel cool and cocky about how good you were, Vic would pull out some obscure soul record with these amazing singers to knock you back down to earth. Most notable was an album by the gospel group 'The Blind Boys of Alabama'. I decided then and there that if I was gonna be respected I would have to strive to that level of vocal passion, intensity and soul'. After leaving the band he spent some time in Los Angeles singing demos and working for songwriters Gerry Goffin and Michael Masser. In the 80's Scottie Bros/CBS Records released 'LaMarca', a solo endeavor that found this soul lover singing some catchy pop songs, a few of which made it to the big screen, most notably, 'Hold on Blue Eyes' from the movie 'The Wraith' starring Charlie Sheen. He devoted most of the 90's to raising his kids in Cleveland and singing radio jingles and T.V. commercials. In 2005, Abe decided to make the move to Las Vegas where he worked at just about every hotel on and off The Strip with various bands and show projects. Recently he has been busy in the studio and in 2013 released the popular song 'Rise And Shine' with longtime friend and co-writer Anne Cochran. The track is featured on his new CD 'Stand And Deliver' along with the follow up singles, 'A Little Inspiration' and 'The 14 Days Of Summer'.
