about

Troubadour M.Antonio delivers his debut EP Slingshot Diaries. It's the heaviness of grunge rock with the melancholy of a modern blues act. Here's what the critics say:

"The closer is so badass that I had to kick off my penultimate paragraph with that statement. It's a nasty, gritty, sinister cut where M.Antonio waxes existential, referring both to himself as the little red rooster and commenting, "There's been no peace in the farmyard / since my rooster's been gone." The electric guitar riffs are exactly what I want from my nightmarish blues artists, and of course there's the searing harmonica that cauterizes the wounds M.Antonio has delivered thus far. The string hits are seductive as hell, but the lyrics never let you forget that there is an element of danger in M.Antonio's music. " The Equal Ground, California USA.

"'Cornerstone’ serve as a fitting introduction to M.Antonio’s blues-rock and to his advanced musicianship. What sounds like a band of four strong members has all come from him. Clearly proficient across the instrumental spectrum, he impresses us once more when he opens his mouth. A smooth, strong voice hurls out lines like “I gave up on you, like you wanted me to”, transforming the traditional break up ballad into a pop-rock anthem. He makes heartache sound pretty good." Vulture Magazine, Melbourne Australia.

Track Name: Cornerstone
I walk the streets alone
Dog without a bone
Jumping house to house
I ain't got no home
Pushing over them rocks
I got pebbles and stones

You get what you give
when you're a serpentine
Cause you're high Yeah
Cause you're high Yeah

You're not my cornerstone
My Cornerstone... Anymore
You're not my cornerstone
My Cornerstone... Anymore

I gave up on you
Like you wanted me too
My heart beats like a drum
For somebody new
Sitting all alone
Smoking champions at home
My heart beats like a drum
For somebody new

Cause you're high Yeah
Cause you're high Yeah

You're not my cornerstone
My Cornerstone... Anymore
You're not my cornerstone
My Cornerstone... Anymore

I gave up on you
Like you wanted me too
My heart beats like a drum
For somebody new
Sitting all alone
Smoking champions at home
My heart beats like a drum
For somebody new
