Philly R&B Legends The Trammps Release New Single Penned By Teen

Possibly one of the best known Grammy Award Winning R&B/Disco acts to hit the music scene in the late 1970s was Philadelphia's The Trammps, with their hit song “Disco Inferno”, which was featured on the number one selling soundtrack of all time 'Saturday Night Fever'. Most recently 50 Cent released a hit single "Hate It Or Love It" along with Mary J and the Game that sampled The Trammps hit "Rubber Band"; a track from The Trammps first album 'The Legendary Zing Album...And Other Trammps Hits', that also included "Hold Back The Night", "Where The Happy People Go" and "Where Were You When The Lights Went Out In New York City". Now, one of the hottest new songwriters to emerge from Philly, teen songwriting prodigy Matt Cermanski, has penned a new song for Philly R&B legends The Trammps. Matt's uncle Edward Cermanski is the longtime keyboard player (since the early '70s) for the band, and persuaded original Trammps singers Doc Wade and Stanley Wade to check out one of Matt Cermanski's concerts. Both musicians loved Matt's performance, especially the song “Chapter One”, and decided to record the song as a new Trammps single, which is the first new release from the group in many, many years. “I first saw Matt Cermanski at a small coffee house in Phoenixville, PA,” recalls Doc Wade, original Trammps singer and founder of the group. “After listening to a few songs I realized that Matt had an exceptional talent and can go a long way in the music business. After hearing Matt's EP I have become even more impressed with his vocal , musical and song writing ability. It was at that point The Trammps had a discussion with Matt on The Trammps recording one of Matt's songs 'Chapter One' ” (The Trammps "Chapter One" iTunes Link:

“I didn't think of The Trammps covering the song when I was writing it,” says Matt, “but when I heard what they did with the song I loved it. Music with a saxophone and that R&B style has been something I've been trying to add to my writing style. It has a different flavor too it that just grooves.” Along with composing the song, Matt plays guitar and sings some back up on the track. The Trammps continue to tour the world with dates in the UK, Germany, Netherlands and the USA, while “Chapter One” has been receiving airplay on the BBC in the UK.

Matt Cermanski's new song was written on the heals of his first video release produced and filmed by Matteo Mobile in 2010. Matt Cermanski's “Darling” is a teen-angst ridden video with an all too familiar theme of forbidden teenage love. When first posted, the video caused a major sensation on YouTube with over 3000 views in the first couple weeks by word and mouth alone, and now close to a year later the video has received over 20,000 views! Matt Cermanski's performance in the video is none less than exciting and and honest. The song “Darling”, which is included on Matt's new EP 'Long Road Home', is skillfully crafted and showcases Matt's adept songwriting prowess – years ahead of his age (now 18) “I started playing guitar when I was 13 years old,” recalls Matt, “and I have been around music pretty much my whole life, singing as long as I can remember. My top musical influence would have to be Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20. I really like the songs he writes and the style of music. Another major influence is my Dad (renown music promoter Steven Cermanski), because he is the one who really got me into music and has helped me out so much.” Matt is also influenced by Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye.

Much to the anticipation of Matt Cermanski's fans around the world, he recently released a 7-song EP on iTunes titled "Long Road Home". The EP is a personal insight into Matt's life, especially the song “Empty House”, which was written for Matt's grandmother, whom he lost to Cancer. Also included are both “Darling” and “Chapter One”, which are garnering some major radio airplay in the tri-state area on 93.3 WMMR PA , and 93.7 WSTW DE.The EP can be purchased at
