After a successful year shooting their web series TV show on I broadcast TV, Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays are returning to the Studio. Having launched their hit tune “I am a Star” in May of 2012, through American based Fever Pitch Music the group toured extensively culminating in heading Stella’s Stone rock Garden Party.

Astro Joey revealed that the band will be returning to the studio in 2014 after working on a video  for the popular song “One Big Family” written by Evan Olsen, Kristy Jackson and Jessica Mashburn. “It was great working with such talented musicians so, we thought that the time was right to hit the studio again in the new year.” said Astro Joey

She reported that It had been great hanging out in Film land and they  particularly enjoyed their friend Virgil’s short filmIt’s time to return to our roots of making music” she said.

Astro Joey & The Cosmic Rays will be in the studio in the first quarter of the new year. I highly recommend to keep an eye out for further announcements in 2014.

ImageAs the saying goes “it’s a long way to the top if you want to Rock and Roll”. Rock is what Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays have been doing with their new release “I Am  A Star.”

Squealing fans lined up around the Planet Girlo Stadium to get the pre-release of Astro Joey & The Cosmic Ray’s new single - “I Am  A Star.”

Not since the ancient times of the Granite Beatles, have we seen such scenes and response to a new release.

We wrote it on our last tour when we came across some pretty nasty dudes such as  music promoter, Ratty Rockface,” said Astro Joey.“The music business can be tough and as much as there are great people out there, there are also a lot of sharks, waiting to see you fall.”

Kristy Solarflare, The Royal Stella’s Musical Minstral and keys player in the band was the driver of the song. This single reminds us that it’s OK to be different, have dreams and shoot for the stars. She’s a wise gal and has a great head on her. Very creative and talented.

In my recent interview with her  for i-Rock TV, she explained her inspiration behind the song “Sometimes it takes a bit of inner strength and courage to follow that dream to the top. Along the way, other kids can be jealous, try and knock you down and be mean for being a bright light in that sky. When I saw Ratty Rockface being a bully with people, it made me mad, so I figured I’d just put my feelings about it into a song. Music speaks for itself and always wins out at the end of the day,” she said.

Ratty Rockface was removed and escorted from the venue and Astro Joey & the Cosmic Rays continued to play their Girlo Rock Quartz sound and blew their fans away. Bullies are just not cool.

“I am a star”  is a song that embraces uniqueness and pride in who you are. “I Am  A Star, is the lead song in the developmental cartoon series, “The Adventures of Astro Joey .”
