New P.J. Pacifico Song ‘Anything is Possible' Secures Multiple TV Airings, as Acclaimed ‘Ready to Run' Single Climbs to #19 on Digital Radio Charts

Singer-songwriter P.J. Pacifico's anthemic new song ‘Anything is Possible' has been featured multiple times in recent weeks on the hit FOX-TV show So You Think You Can Dance, and was also a ‘Hot Track' on iTunes' Home Page.
The song can be heard here:

The track is available now via iTunes:

The title track of Pacifico's acclaimed Viper EP ‘Ready to Run' has climbed to #19 on current digital radio charts, amid such household names as Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato and more.  On the EP, Pacifico takes a leap of faith and leaves behind the acoustic guitar stylings that were his trademark sound for many years. Focusing instead on synthesizers as the backdrop to his intense, emotional lyrics, Pacifico has earned raves. BlogCritics drew comparisons to Sting, Paul Simon and Jackson Browne. And Elmore Magazine, in an Exclusive Premiere, described the title track as "A synth driven power ballad, with a killer hook, eighties vibe, and deliciously raspy vocals that you very well might mistake for early Rod Stewart." AbsolutePunk, in an 8.8 (out of 10) review, raved, "Ready to Run dabbles in the realms of pop and the results are truly dynamic. The EP opens with "All For Something," a piano-tinged triumph of enveloping, celestial synths and an environment that is both hypnotic and transfixing."

In a series of recent syndicated interviews, Pacifico talks candidly about his survivor's guilt, and how he has finally found a path to sing about being ‘Among the Living' (a song he has tried to write since his chemotherapy ended, twenty years ago.) Take a look at coverage, here:

Singer-songwriter P.J. Pacifico bears his soul on the stark, new, five-song EP ‘Ready To Run', out now on Viper Records. Pacifico discusses the cathartic nature of the new tracks, and the liberating sonic departure that accompanies them, in additional interviews below. Leaving his familiar acoustic guitar-driven sound behind, Pacifico embraces loops, drum beats and synthesizers to accompany his clenched, storyteller's approach to the acclaimed collection.

On the EP's emotional, centerpiece song, ‘Among The Living', Pacifico -- a cancer survivor who has never tackled the subject in his music -- finally faces his survivor's guilt. Huffington Post premiered the track, below. AXS featured Pacifico via an in-depth interview, and premiered his haunting song ‘While You Were Looking Away' - the article follows.

Huffington Post included this text from Pacifico: "This is the most important song I've ever released. It's been inside me for 20 years, and I've wanted to write it since my chemotherapy ended. I've learned to forgive myself for surviving and have finally accepted that I've done nothing wrong by doing so. It was an extremely therapeutic song to write and an intensely emotional songwriting session, to say the least. Battling cancer made me the person I am today, and actually helped me in many ways. But the focus isn't only on me or my personal experiences. I've learned that we are all among the living and we all should live life to the fullest. That's the universal message of the song, and it means the world to me."  Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMIB8KflPzw

Pacifico debuted another one of the new songs, ‘All For Something', via social media:

The ‘Ready To Run' EP emerged from writing and recording sessions Pacifico completed in Los Angeles in late-2014/early-2015 with artists Garrison Starr and AG, two long-time friends/collaborators, who also provide background vocals and production on the tracks. "They completely took me out of my comfort zone from the very beginning. First of all, I didn't touch an acoustic guitar during the entire recording of this EP. This project is more about turning knobs and pressing keys. They made me think differently, sing in a style that I've never touched on before, write the most honest lyrics I've ever sung and most importantly, they encouraged me to take a risk with the new sound."

In other Pacifico news, a new licensing deal with Razor & Tie has been confirmed, and international distribution is set for ‘Ready To Run'.
