Buffalo Pop Rock Duo’s “Miss You” getting Big Boosts from Military Community & Media

7 Apr

Buffalo Native Pop/Rock duo BREAKERBOX recently teamed with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP)  for the release of a tribute music video featuring its new single “Miss You.” Now available on iTunes, the Video features a montage of military service members and their families in various stages of life surrounding a warrior’s deployment overseas.

Quickly finding hometown support with a featuring interview on ABC Affiliate WKBW AM Buffalo Morning Show; (SEE FULL INTERVIEW). “Miss You” has been making its way through out the Military Community and Local & National media. In addition to social media shares from WWP (VIDEO); the Music Video is now finding support from organizations such as US Veterans Foundation and is in heavy rotation on American Veterans Radio.

BREAKERBOX MISS YOU ELLEN DEGENERESFeatures in Online Music Magazines such as EssentiallyPop, along with popular site jumping on board to feature the video on their fan page; and upcoming endorsements from Music Industry sponsors such as Audio Technica are all helping BREAKERBOX & Miss You rise above the noise level and reach the masses in the competitive Youtube & Social Media based Music Industry.

“Its all about connection” says singer Christina DeNee’. “And we have been blown away by the reaction we have been getting, especially from the Military Community”. Originally written by drummer Scott Calandra and DeNee’ about the loss of their parents “Miss You” was first released off their debut EP “These Are Strange Days” in 2011. “I lost my father at age 14, and Christina lost her mother at 10.” says Calandra soldiers“We just wanted the song to capture that feeling of loss and missing someone. But then we were recently contacted by a mother whose son was a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, who sadly took his life after struggling to adjust to civilian life. She played ‘Miss You’ at his funeral, which moved us beyond words. It opened our eyes to a way we could possibly support suffering veterans who don’t necessarily have a voice – except through organizations like WWP. So, we re-approached the song for a re-release.”
