New Torch Entertainment Presents: Gizmo & Endangered Species
October 6, 2012
Gizmo is widely recognized as a bassist and music director, but he has spent the last year working on his new album “Red Balloon,” where he is showcasing another, and perhaps the most captivating side of himself as a singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist, and producer. He has collaborated with many world-renowned musicians including Derrick Hodge, Casey Benjamin, Jamire Williams, George W. Russell, Jr, Ilan Bar-Lavi, and co-
producer Gabo Lugo to create a compelling record that expresses a personal side of Gizmo. The 14 track debut record is currently in the mixing stage and is being shopped by various labels, and it will be released in the next few months.

Rooted equally in hip-hop and reggae, the Endangered Speeches sound is characterized chiefly by the unique global view brought by each of its 13 members. While Mariletta Konstantara’s love for Rebetika (traditional Greek music) and Drum n’ Bass contribute toward a diverse repertoire, the cemented rhythm section, airtight horns, and four-part vocal harmonies build a sound both unbreakable and unmistakable. Endangered Speeches formed at Berklee College of Music in 2008 and currently call Boston their collective home, but members hail from places as wide-ranging as Canada, Norway, Greece, India, Mexico and across United States, each with vast musical experience. Now with the two albums in their catalogue, "The City is Rough" and "Dem Borders Will Fall", the band moves determinedly forward, poised to bring the music “home.”
