No, this post doesn’t have anything to do with fire. Nor does it have anything to do with the condition known as pyromania.
This post is in reference to my new favourite artist: PYRO! So I’ll tell you a little bit about him…Pyro is a musical artist from Reno, Nevada.
I bet you’re wondering, how I know an unsigned artist from a small town in the Western States. Well, I may live in Montréal now, but I used to live in Reno and I am familiar with some local talent.
I have a few friends from Reno who regularly perform at local venues and one day, I went to a show where Pyro was performing. I was immediately awed by his stage presence and even more so by his performance.
Ok, so this particular performance might not seem top-notch on YouTube…and it doesn’t help that there were technical difficulties (oh, and I’m pretty sure they scrapped the terrible “dancers”), but I think you get the point.
If you want a better idea of his music, you can visit his Myspace page.
All of his work is very pop-y and has a touch of electro, which makes it great for dancing or just being upbeat. He also frequently uses featured artists Lil Rasta Boi and Weston Buck, (a couple other local artists) who add flavour to Pyro’s work by rapping and adding electro, respectively.
I have been pretty much listening to his music non-stop since I first heard him perform in December. And although he isn’t signed (so you can’t purchase his music online…yet), you can always visit his Myspace and blast your sound system.
I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do. And who knows, if enough people start noticing him, he may get a record deal and we’ll be able to listen to him offline!
So get your dancin’ shoes and “Look No Further”, because Pyro is the next big thing!
