Organica Music Group is pleased to announce the release of Margo Rey's highly anticipated CD, Habit. The album features Margo's new Top 20 charting single "Between Us," as well as her recent hit song "Let the Rain." The latter, co-written by Ms. Rey and the legendary John Oates, remained on the charts for an astonishing 21 weeks, making it Billboard's "Hot Shot Debut" and additionally earning her kudos in the magazine's "Bubbling Under" column. The duo also teamed up on the stunning cut "Saturn Returns." Oates sings on both tracks and he provides an ideal complement to Rey's powerful yet nuanced vocals. Listeners closest to it claim that Habit is its own brand of sonic luxury and Rey emerges as a force of nature - in heels no less.
In addition, Margo is preparing for her upcoming national holiday tour with Dave Koz, which is certain to please her diverse and loyal fan base. Based on her track record, Rey's following is understandable. In less than a two-year span she has delivered five hits in diverse genres that include Adult Contemporary as well as Dance and Pop. She also charted two #1 Dance hits and if that's not enough, Rey also generated an original Christmas hit.
The holiday tour kicks off on November 23rd with all dates found below. The Dave Koz and Friends Christmas Tour will be a high-energy tour featuring not only Margo Rey, but David Benoit, Javier Colon and Shelia E. Koz comments, "It never ceases to blow me away, how much people love holiday songs-as evidenced by our 15th anniversary of this tour! This year especially, we'll try to fit in as many favorites as possible and add our own unique touches along the way."
Reflecting on the direction of Habit Margo explains: "I wanted something 'lo-fi' as opposed to the cloned sounds of today's pop culture environment. I needed my music to sound like me rather than the equipment it was recorded on. Plus, I feel a huge affinity - love affair even - for the singer/songwriter era of the seventies and eighties." Ms. Rey employed a technique as simple as it is novel in today's recording environment. She gathered extraordinary musicians in a room and they recorded (equally extraordinary) music together. If that doesn't sound radical, it should - and Habit underscores the point. It's a CD that never leaves the human vibe behind. It revels in it and, if anything, deepens it.
Margo has produced a collection of songs that reverberates with a gamut of emotions. Greed, love, lust, doubt, remorse, obsession and crazed vulnerability are all present - in abundance. "I hope listeners respond to the penetrating pulse in each of these songs. They're an exploration of my contradictory feelings over the past two years.
Roll all of those emotional tangents into a set list and you have, well, something that I hope will become a "Habit."
The album unleashes thirteen songs, all of which are original. One exception is a gorgeous cover of The Zombie's hit, "She's Not There." If you think you've heard the song before, think again. This version has more down-under burn than most people can handle. But it gets better. Ms. Rey will be on tour. So hang on. Or, better yet, let yourself go. www.MargoRey.com
Habit was recorded and mixed at Rusk LA by Elton Ahi, mastered by Yossi Shaked, produced and arranged by Margo Rey in collaboration with Elton Ahi and Chris Wabich.
