The Secret Things are a sexy, loud, rock n’ roll trio out of Los Angeles.  Influenced by artists like PJ Harvey and Nirvana, Cynthia Catania (vocals/guitar), Dan Nelles (drums) and Steve Giles (bass) came together in early 2016 to begin writing and recording what would eventually become their debut EP Shock Diary, due for release on October 27th.  In previous projects, these three have played festival stages to thousands, signed record deals, had domestic & international radio play, and released videos with hundreds of thousands of views.  The future holds even greater promise for this new communion of kindred spirits.  The Secret Things is coming out of their hiding place – some secrets can’t be kept forever.

Cynthia Catania is well know to Amnplify and Australia. In 2014 she toured Australia for the first time as a solo artist and Maggie Sapet, one of our writers, wrote about Cynthia HERE. I was then introduced to Cynthia a year later and I (Dave Bruce) added my view HERE. I have been following her since and I am excited that the band has released their debut video “ALL THE WAY DOWN” to some rave reviews. As a fan of her work, I am not surprised that it hit me right away and does every time I play it. You can check it out and see for yourself below –

Below are some details about the video that you might find interesting.

THE DIRECTOR
.
Sue Ann Pien (@SueAnnPien, Mars100 candidate feat. in TIME magazine, People, ELLE & more/actress by trade/humanitarian & Cynthia’s partner) said this about the video concept: 
.
“The video explores the hidden desires we keep “All the Way Down” – it represents a woman’s right to her own form of sexuality, even when its unconventional. The Secret Things band is the shamanistic element taking viewers through this journey while the secret agents are the rigid, conservative forces of repression that causes us to hide our true selves. There’s a #BlackLivesMatter shoutout in the video that was inspired by Cynthia’s own recent run-in with the Long Beach Police Department!”
.
This is Sue Ann’s directorial debut.

My nickname is "The Amnplifier". Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes than people come here for. My day to day "work" is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences. Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some "wisdom" from my regular and constant "observations". Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don't, you can always catch me on the Your Blog page. I have a regular spot there so let me know how you are going when you get the chance. Enjoy the new website, and enjoy the ride here as we keep introducing more all the time.
