Fun Facts: Single, Toss Him Aside, hit top 10 in March 2017 on Euro Indie Music Chart and DRT! The name, Poetically Contagious, was chosen to express their goal as musicians: “The intensity given, to the expression of our feelings and ideas, by the use of our distinctive style and rhythm, through our musical expression, easily spread amongst people”.
Formed in Binghamton, New York, in February, 2010, Poetically Contagious started out as a performance group (with members “J-1,2” and “Captain”); with shows at Binghamton University, and Alfred University, to name a few, before transcending, from the stage to the studio – recording the songs “Inspired into Stardom,” “1st Date (Relax its ok),” “So, so, attractive” and “What I wanna be.” These songs led to Poetically Contagious being finalist in a “Recording and Performance” contest in NYC (March 2011). That exposure led to Poetically Contagious forming a record label – Poetically Contagious Records. With growing popularity, a National Entertainment magazine (MAMI Magazine) took notice, and requested an interview, and photo shoot, for their Summer 2011 issue of MAMI Magazine.
This, interview, led to more song-play in clubs, especially with the song “1st Date (Relax its ok),” which led to MAMI Magazine requesting (asking) to use (feature) the lyrics from the song in their Fall 2011 issue. Music video directors begin to take notice, and when approached by the label, in 2012, Edward Mendoza, from Los Angeles, California, was very excited to shoot Poetically Contagious Record’s first major music video, and flew out to New York, to shoot “Time to get that Cash.” When this video was released in Fall 2012, radio stations all across the U.S. begin to take notice, and asked the label to do a remix to the song. “Time to get that Cash (Remix),” was released in June 2013, along with the rerelease of the music video. The song made it to the “Top 200 National Radio Charts,” peaking at number 187.
Poetically Contagious has been working hard in the studio ever since (bringing into the label artist such as “Lil Dice,” and “Shardkeith,” and working with producers such as “Tony the Maestro” “Beatslocker.com,” and “Nine Diamond”), to put together a great album for old and new fans alike…
