CASIO PRIVIA ARTIST JOSH CHARLES RELEASES A NEW SINGLE “LIFE AIN’T FAIR”
A New Modern Country Single, Co-Written with Milton L. Brown
DOVER, NJ, October 4, 2011 — Casio America, Inc., the industry leader in stage digital pianos, is proud to announce that Privia spokesperson, singer/songwriter and piano protégé Josh Charles has released a new single, “Life Ain’t Fair”, co-written with hit maker Milton L. Brown (No. 1 Hits include ‘Every Which Way But Loose’ and ‘Any Which Way You Can’).
Written using a Privia PX-3 digital piano Charles says “’Life Ain’t Fair’ is a song that speaks for what is happening to the socio-economic state of our country, and yet for as dark as days get, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. You keep keepin’ on because that’s the only way to go.”
Josh Charles, who is known for his love and dedication to the city of New Orleans, came to make this record through a chain of events starting in New Orleans. Charles met Clay Bradley when he played the BMI stage at French Quarter Fest 2011; he was soon introduced to Milton L. Brown by Bradley. The two hit it off so well that, within a month, an entire album (to be released in 2012) was created.
“Josh Charles is one of the best musicians in the world, and we’re proud that he is using Privia digital pianos,” said Mike Martin, general manager of marketing, Electronic Musical Instruments Division for Casio America, Inc.
The Privia line of digital pianos delivers an unprecedented level of realism and expression for musicians of all levels – from the novice to the professional. Musicians can achieve the grand piano feel and sound without sacrificing portability.
