Celebrated Rock and Soul Singer Ivan Neville Serenades Beautiful Women on the Streets of New Orleans, as The Young Presidents Showcase The Big Easy in Joyful Music Video for ‘Time’

TYP’s Mitch Kaneff and Jake Hertzog Feature Neville in Their Whirlwind 12-Hour Video Shoot, and Shine a Light on Such Local Landmarks as Jackson Square, One Eyed Jacks and WWOZ

RELIX Premieres ‘Time’ with Special Sonos Wireless HiFi System Promotion and Contest, as TYP’s Acclaimed ‘Coalition’ Album Available via All Digital Retail


Rock/Soul collective The Young Presidents took to the streets of New Orleans for their first-ever music video, and the result is a joyful, infectious, enthusiastic complement to the vibrant city that hosted their whirlwind 12-hour shoot. TYP’s Mitch Kaneff and Jake Hertzog are joined by celebrated vocalist Ivan Neville on the song ‘Time’, and showcase The Big Easy (Neville’s hometown) with images of Jackson Square, One Eyed Jacks and even a visit to WWOZ.  All the while, Neville is seen interacting with beautiful women and assorted characters he encounters on the streets of New Orleans, many of whom join him for the video’s raucous finale. The clip, directed by Jonathan McHugh, premiered via RELIX, along with a special Sonos Wireless HiFi System promotion and contest, and can be seen here: http://www.relix.com/media/video/premiere_the_young_presidents_feat_ivan_neville_time. Learn more about the band here: http://www.theyoungpresidents.com

The upbeat, retro song has a celebratory vibe -- "Time is something we never have enough of," said TYP bassist and founding member Mitch Kaneff in a recent radio interview. "So we really have to celebrate every moment."  Director McHugh and TYP capture that spirit in ‘Time’.





NY-based The Young Presidents have been covered in USA Today, Relix, NY-1 TV, Huffington Post, Jambands, Guitar World and more. The band’s acclaimed second album ‘Coalition’ (available now via all digital retail outlets, including iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/kh/album/coalition/id887620637 and Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Coalition-The-Young-Presidents/dp/B00KZPB1WQ ,) marked a departure from their first power trio record, as they searched for -- and found -- a larger sound. "We had all this ‘huge sound’ music that we were writing that was so diverse," says founding member and guitarist Jake Hertzog… "So we thought - what if we got a guest singer?" That idea led to the band's collaboration with Living Colour frontman Corey Glover and Grammy-winning producer Rob Fraboni. From there, the entire album took shape with more collaborations and contributions from former Beach Boy Blondie Chaplin, acoustic rocker Adam Ezra and the aforementioned Ivan Neville.


Enter Daniel Jackson – ‘DJAX’ -
In addition to the new album and new music video, The Young Presidents continue to break new ground by welcoming a new lead singer to the group. International musical theater star Daniel C. Jackson (aka DJAX) joins The Young Presidents to provide his signature vocal sound and intense energy to the group. Jackson, who hails from Birmingham, Alabama, got his start early with such shows as The Buddy Holly Story and was most recently on tour with the Green Day musical American Idiot. "One of the great facets of the ‘Coalition’ guest vocalist album we made has been getting to work with so many great singers," The band said in a statement on their website, "but in order to move on to the next phase of The Young Presidents journey we needed someone who really fit the group. Daniel is such a deep talent and we couldn't be more thrilled to have him on board.”  Jackson recently performed with TYP on a string of west coast dates, including Michele Clark's Sunset Sessions.  



Recent coverage of ‘Coalition’ and more about The Young Presidents:

TYP founders Mitch Kaneff and Jake Hertzog were joined at Relix Magazine by vocalist Blondie Chaplin for a riveting rendition of ‘Love You Forever’. The song has been a focus track among journalists, considered to be a centerpiece of ‘Coalition’ -- among the “album’s strongest and most indelible cuts.”

In his recent AbsolutePunk write-up, critic Gregory Robson commented: “You always want to root for the bands that try something different, the ones who
aren’t afraid to take chances. On their latest release, Coalition, New York City’s The Young Presidents enlisted the help of some friends.
Foremost of those friends is the silky smooth vocalist Ivan Neville, who lends his vocals to two songs; Boston frat-rocker Adam Ezra, who sings on another two; South African musician Blondie Chaplin, who sings on four; and Galactic/Living Colour vocalist Corey Glover, who sings on five.
The disc opens with arguably one of its strongest songs, the freewheeling, sun-drenched feel good jam “Time,” in which Neville’s vocals soar and usher in a yarn that’s refreshing, invigorating and deeply memorable. There’s a throwback vibe here and the way its presented is completely effortless, unadulterated and without pretense.” Robson also shines a light on two tracks featuring vocals by Blondie Chaplin:  “Arguably one of the album’s strongest and most indelible cuts is the string-laden “Love You Forever,” featuring the first-rate vocals of Chaplin.” And, “Penultimate cut “Dripping With Honeysuckle” rises on the wings of an airy organ, a funk backdrop and Chaplin’s inspired timbre.”

Other reviews have praised the CD as containing “crunchy cool,” “searing” vocals that highlight the “funk thump” and “bone-breaking groove” of the tracks. As referenced above, ‘Coalition’ features the contributions of renown artists Ivan Neville, Anton Fig, Blondie Chaplin, Corey Glover, Adam Ezra, and more, performing songs written by TYP’s Mitch Kaneff and Jake Hertzog. Kaneff and Hertzog’s ambitious project was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Grammy winner Rob Fraboni, of The Band, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and Rolling Stones fame.

More about the project:
Already featured in USA Today, Huffington Post, NY-1 TV, and elsewhere, The Young Presidents celebrate the release of ‘Coalition’, an 11-song collection of rock ‘n roll music (with hints of soul and alternative).

Kaneff (bass), Hertzog (guitar) and Fraboni eschew modern-day digital sleight of hand for a raw, live band, rocking, ‘captured-in-the-studio’ sound…From Ivan Neville’s killer vocals on ‘Time’, to Corey Glover’s explosive delivery on ‘Unacceptable You’, to Blondie Chaplin’s wrenching take on ‘Love You Forever’, to the trio of vocalists joining together on Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong’s seminal ‘War’, the diversity of the music and the top-notch performances propel the collection, and reflect the high caliber of artists who’ve joined together to form a truly soulful ‘Coalition’.
