Mary's Magnet

Modern Rock Band From New Jersey

Mary's Magnet is a modern rock band with strong emotion, subtle dynamics and energy as evidenced on their self-titled promo CD. Led by guitarist Andy Rothstein, their bio describes their sound as, "...a cross between Soundgarden, King's X and the Beatles." The Beatles influence shows up the strongest on their CD, with Rothstein's guitar work and soloing distinguishing the group from their heroes. The band writes some very likable rock music, well-performed and produced and with an edge you'd expect from a New York area based band. Highlights from their CD include the opening two numbers "Love" and "Since You've Been Lost" and "Circle". Band members include Rothstein, bassist and vocalist Tony Senatore (who has toured with Pat Travers) and drummer Lou Petto (who has gigged with the instrumental band One More Once).

alb Guitarist Andy Rothstein started out as a student of Steve Khan and Vinny Zummo (of Joe Jackson) before beginning his career in the New York City clubs with The Prayer in the early '90s. He formed Mary's Magnet in 1995 with bassist Senatore and long time friend and drummer Lou Petto. Andy has authored a variety of transcription books for Hal Leonard Publishing under the pen name of Andy Robyns. Some of his published transcriptions include Alice In Chains ("Dirt") and Nrivana ("Incesticide"). Andy favors a custom Sadowsky Strat, a Steinberger and Ovation guitars.

Mary's Magnet continues to play live shows in support of their new CD.

Robert Carlton

Sharing His Inspiration - With A Guitar

Guitarist Robert Carlton's first solo project, A Time Such As This, is an all instrumental release of songs ranging from rock, jazz-flavored rock and electric blues. Containing sixteen tracks, the CD is virtually 100% improvisational in nature. Carlton jams over grooves; he jams over chord progressions; he jams over arpeggiated passages; he jams over riffs. Although there are moments of melodic forays, there really isn't one melody on the CD that you can hang your hat on. As a result, A Time Such As This will appeal to fans of free-wheeling, off-the-cuff guitar playing. We'd love to see Carlton take a more structured and ambitious approach to his next recording project.

pic Robert, a seven time ASCAP songwriter award winner, has been featured in many publications worldwide since the beginning of his career in 1986. In his early years, he played with the rock band Empyre, which toured with groups such as Cinderella and Blue Oyster Cult. In 1992, Carlton decided that he wanted his music to have meaning beyond just the moment. Robert said of that time, "The Lord touched me and encouraged me to bring my music to a hurting world that needs Jesus Christ in their lives." Since that time, he has worked with Christian rock groups such as Sevenfold and Corban.

Carlton hopes to share his inspiration with others. "I hope and pray through my music, people's relationship with the Lord will become stronger," he states in his biography.
