Carmen Cirignano - The Young Statues

Carmen Cirignano started making music at a young age. Probably because he grew up on a steady musical diet of Fleetwood Mac, Brice Springsteen & Neil Young. He's related jazz musician Buddy Greco and grew up in the rich musical tradition of Philadelphia. In his teens, influenced by artist like Jimmy Eat World & Death Cab For Cutie, he started indie rock band Makeout Party. After 2 LP's & 2 EP's the band ended as many high school bands do. Carmen wasted no time and traveled down to Athens, GA to begin writing & recording what would later become his new musical vehicle, Young Statues. In 2011 he and the band released their debut self-titled LP on Run For Cover Records which Alterative Press called "...a cumulative composite of 30 years of indie Americana, weaving a clear thread through Fables Of The Reconstruction-era R.E.M., mid-90's alt-country and the post millennial pop of groups such as The Shins and Band Of Horses". For the next year the band toured nationally & abroad with bands like The Wonder Years, The Early November, Saves The Day, Transit, All Get Out, Seahaven, Misser, A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, Now Now, Mansions and more. 2013 brought the release of a new EP titled Age Isn't Ours, which expanded on the atmospheric Americana inspired rock from the S/T full-length and into the world of smart and sophisticated indie pop. The songs move and unfold with an energy only hinted at previously. Still present were Cirignano’s contemplative, sharp & occasionally biting lyrics. He and the band will be recording their anticipated second full-length in early 2014. Carmen's songs often deal with looking back and inward. They're reflective and thoughtful. They're about loss and hope. He's a young & modern songwriter who understands the power of words and the tradition of storytelling. He has a deep love & appreciation for music and would love to help you on your project.
