Cisco Adler’s Debut Album

Cisco Adler’s Debut Album

After collaborations with hip-hop artist Shwayze and as frontman for Whitestarr, Los Angeles Musician and Singer Cisco Adler is planning the release of his first solo record. Album features Don Carlos, G. Love, Kyle McDonald and more

But rather than drawing influences from California’s coastal jams and west coast weather, Adler will return to his island roots for the big debut, entitled Aloha. On October 23rd, the summer jams that can last year round will be unleashed on CD, vinyl, anddigital through Adler’s own indie label, Bananabeat Records.

After producing and engineering Aloha on his own last year, Adler teamed up with Shane Stoner for mixing during a six month period following the digital-only release of his six-song summer EP. The collage illuminated with shades of pop, rock, reggae, and hip-hop all hyped up with a signature Island sound, sporting everything Adler grew up with in Maui and Malibu. Also on the co-production lineup was high-caliber Jim Jonsin (Beyonce, Kanye West, Lil Wayne), and Jeff Wooten, formerly with The Gorillaz.

The album will feature 13 songs, as as Adler puts it is, “like the second chapter, [it] is a little more retrospective of the summer you just spent. It’s pop with a lot of reggae and mixed up with rock and hip-hop. It’s everything I love.”.

Aloha features guest vocalists such as one of Adler’s truest inspirations G.Love (from G.Love & The Special Sauce) as well as the legend Don Carlos, G-Eazy, and Mod Son. Furthermore, Adler invited guest musicians to do what they do best, including North Mississippi Allstars’ Cody and Luther Dickinson, Kyle McDonald from Slightly Stoopid, and guitar artiste Josh Randy.
