BLACK LABEL SOCIETY’S JOHN "JD" DESERVIO AND OTHER ROCKERS PERFORM ON CHRISTMAS EP FOR DEANNA DESIO & THE INFINITE STAIRCASE
Date: Dec 28, 2015
Music fans were rockin’ around the Christmas Tree this holiday season as emerging singer/songwriter Deanna DeSio & The Infinite Staircase have joined forces with some of the heaviest hitters in the industry to release the holiday EP Gingerbread Pop.
John “JD” DeServio of Black Label Society, Joe Taylor of Cycle of Pain and the Corey Glover Band (and former guitarist for Doro Pesch), and “Atomic” Bob Pantella of Monster Magnet and Atomic Bitchwax are just a few of the celebrity musicians who performed and lent their producing credits to the album.
However, the masterminds behind the EP were brothers Lenny and Jeff Cerzosie from the acclaimed band The Infinite Staircase, who are a Top 30 Mainstream Rock Band and have written, recorded and/or toured with the likes of Zakk Wylde, Candlebox, Sevendust, Black Label Society, Jonathan Davis of Korn and more.
The two were introduced to DeSio through a mutual friend and, inspired by her eclectic vocal style and pure talent on the piano, knew immediately that they had to work with her in some capacity. Declaring his love for all things Christmas, Jeff said "I am always involved with some sort of Christmas project; I just love it. And to do this album with Deanna just made perfect sense. The fact that JD and the rest of the artists are involved is just ridiculously intriguing.”
The Infinite Staircase doesn’t just provide the music for Gingerbread Pop. They also co-produced the EP with DeSio and Pantella.
“I am thrilled to be working with Jeff and Lenny because they have been through everything and know the business aspect AND the musical aspect and that is really comforting,” said DeSio.”I know I'm working with the right people. I've had nothing but incredible experiences working with Jeff and Lenny and look forward to continuing our work together!”
Gingerbread Pop features three songs, including:
"Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"
(features special guest appearances by Monster Magnet/The Atomic Bitchwax's "Atomic" Bob Pantella
"Grown Up Christmas List"
(features special guest appearances by Black Label Society’s John "JD" DeServio and Cycle of Pain/Corey Glover's Joe Taylor and was co-produced by DeServio)

The EP was released digitally everywhere, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, CDBaby, and Spotify.
