The Skinny: Permanent Ability maintains a media value that is incomparable to the dime-a-dozen cliché bands found in Los Angeles. Backed by legendary producer Jim Wirt, Permanent Ability’s name is a testament to their capacity within the music industry.

The band was launched in 2008 by Brian Lanese. Brian is a three time Emmy Award Winner. His long list of accomplishments are sought after by many A-list celebrities. Lanese’s bloodline notes a relation to Mark Twain and his writing mirrors that of his famous ancestor. Permanent Ability defines an unblemished sound that has quickly become a fan, and media, favorite!

The band’s energy, sound, stage presence, and ever-growing fan base even caught the attention of George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic bassist Lige Curry and Mario Pagliarulo of Serj Tankian. With their sophomore disc garnering industry notoriety, the bands collection of work is a tribute to their musical influences ranging from Led Zeppelin to LL Cool J.

From the Womb to Hollywood was the bands’ debut EP in 2008, and Bring It On! debuted in 2010. Bring It On! helped Permanent Ability achieve status as “Best Band of the Week” by and Bring It On! is produced by Jim Wirt. Wirts other clients include No Doubt, Incubus, Hoobastank, Fiona Apple, and a list of other pillars within in the entertainment community.

With east-coast roots, Permanent Ability has established their brand of funk-rock music within the Los Angeles scene. The band is launching a full media junket to ensure their distinctive sound, and viable industry brand, are made available to qualified press outlets.
