Here’s what fans are saying about Brad Marino’s debut single
“C’mon C’mon C’mon”:
“A great, upbeat power pop/rock ‘n’ roll song...like Nick Lowe fronting The Ramones in 1979!” – Faster And Louder
"Sad that the song is only 2 minutes long..need more!"
- Randy, Q108 Kingston
“Pure, untainted, top shelf rock n’ roll.” – Audio Ammunition
Spring 2019, Rochester NH,
Brad Marino, singer, guitarist, songwriter, and co-founding member of beloved garage rock n’ roll band The Connection, is about to embark on a journey stepping into the spotlight front and center on his own.
Brad has spent the past year writing, recording, playing every instrument, and producing his solo full length debut ‘Extra Credit’ with a little ‘extra’ help from his friend Kris Rodgers on the keys and mixing board. What you have is an album filled with tried and true rock n’ roll with hints of country, stabs of punk, and jolts of power pop, created in the garage. Rockpile meets the Ramones, Mick and Keef get into a tussle with the Flamin’ Groovies, The Knack gets all tangled up in blue… get the picture?
Featuring the lead single “C’Mon C’Mon C’Mon” which sat atop at #1 on the Indie Radio Alliance’s Secret Weapon Radio for several weeks, along with the power pop punk sweetness of “Broken Record Baby”, head boppin’ and fist raising of “Fit To Be Tied”, Mick Jagger swagger of “No One Else Tried It”, and the country hearted barroom twang of “What Comes Naturally”, we can go on and on but we want you to hear this for yourself.

Rum Bar Records is turning into one of the absolute best labels for real rock and roll these days, if you haven't gotten hip to that trip. It's the boss sound from the Boss-town." - Bill Kelly, Bill Kelly's Teenage Wasteland WFMU
