NEW ChupaCabra News!!!

HI EVERYONE! Well, it’s been nearly two weeks since ChupaCabra! signed up to Sellaband – and what a two weeks it’s been!

We have managed to get from $0 to $600 (and as of this bulletin we are #2 in the Hot New Acts section!!!) – which is amazing and even though you guys might hear this all the time – we sincerely appreciate every hard-earned dollar you have thrown our way. It really does give us encouragement and motivation, knowing that we have such great supporters as yourselves. In a word - you ROCK.


If you haven't already, please go to to check out the different levels of investment. IT'S NOT A SCAM AND YOU'RE NOT GIVING YOUR MONEY AWAY. For a 10 dollar investment, you get the future CD anyway, so it's money well spent!

THINGS HAVE BEEN HAPPENING! When we haven’t been lurking in the electronic corridors of Sellaband, we have been busy elsewhere… and we are SUPER excited to announce the arrival of a NEW MEMBER!!!!

Don’t worry, nobody left, we just decided – after a lot of discussion – that a second guitarist would be great to have around to fatten our live sound and also to contribute to the songs in their own way.

We found the perfect person and would like to introduce AlexCabrito, on Guitar!!!!

It just so happened that her old band had split when we were looking for someone, so the timing couldn’t have been better! WELCOME, ALEX! Chupa is now a four-piece!


We are right now in the (hopefully) last stages of finishing our new track ‘Chupacabra!’ and will put it up on Sellaband as soon as it’s done! Can’t wait for you guys to hear it!

Other exciting stuff in development – will let you know when it’s ready!

Until next time, Chupas!!!!



Ps… There might be some band photos in the pipeline…. Will let you k

How Badboss became the "The Unsigned Pop-Rap Phenom".

Badboss wasn't born overnight! It took trial and error. See Sam Massey also known as Badboss has self-taught himself how to produce pop, techno, rap, hip hop and rock music by vigorously studying pop and rap cultures. His old songs sounded like they needed a huge amount of finetuning. Alittle less than a year later Badboss is signing deals with Music licensing companies to get his music in film/tv. Talk about self-motivation. Badboss recieved songwriting education from Ty cohen and other established songwriters in the music industry. They told him he had huge potential and they looked forward to seeing him succeed in the music industry. Badboss kept building up his fan-base and getting his name out through local performances. Currently Badboss has about 1000+ fans worldwide, and thats expanding everyday. He's been in press releases on the Urban Music News Network and Mi2n news network. Badboss says "no matter how big I get i will continue to work my butt off to achieve my goals". Now that's not something you'd expect to hear from a 17 yr. old kid,
