(Los Angeles – October 14, 2015) Los Angeles progressive rock artist, Piuma (pronounced py-ooma), will release his first concept album on Thursday, November 12, 2015 on limited edition eco-vinyl and compact disc—and the presale starts today, October 14th at the Piuma Shop. The first 100 customers get 10% off their order, using the discount code “piuma-presale”, up until the release date. Tickets for the Record Release Show are now available through Picatic. The show is on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at Kulak’s Woodshed in Studio City. Seating is limited at the venue, which has been reviewed as the best kept musical secret in the valley, by the Daily News, and is an LA Weekly "Best of LA" favorite. A live HD stream of the record release show will also be broadcast (live stream info to follow).

Piuma’s self-titled EP, was recorded using 100% renewable energy and manufactured using recycled and renewable materials wherever possible. All the manufacturers involved, made donations to TreePeople to offset carbon emitted during the manufacturing process, each planting a tree in the Angeles National Forest, in the name of the album. Additionally, $1.00 will be donated by Shining Light Records for each album sold, planting additional trees—making Piuma a carbon-positive album—reducing greenhouse gases beyond what was emitted in the production process.

Piuma is a Los Angeles artist (vocals/guitar) inspired by the music of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Bob Marley and the Wailers. As a film composer, he wrote music for Surfrider’s documentary trailer, The Twenty, which raised over $80,000 to protect the last twenty miles of undeveloped and unprotected Southern California coastline. Piuma’s EP is a concept album that relates to the environmental cause, in that it is about a seeker searching for truth and meaning in a confusing world—and wanting to make a positive difference. While the album was written, performed, and recorded all by Piuma as a one man studio band, he is working with talented LA musicians to create the record release show with live bass, drums, and keys.

A series of videos and blog articles will be published on Piuma’s website,, leading up to the release date with each piece going behind the album—into the meaning, recording, and responsible manufacturing process used to create Piuma.

Additional press releases will follow containing links and band photos/bios. This press release is the first follow-up to the September 14th release: Piuma to release an eco-vinyl concept album benefitting TreePeople.
