(July 19, 2006) – New York, NY – KOCH Records proudly announces the release of the debut album from Nuttin’ But Stringz, comprised of extraordinary violinist siblings. Their album entitled Struggle From The Subway to The Charts will be released on October 3rd, 2006. The album includes their hit single, “Thunder.”

Teenage brothers Damien and Tourie Escobar, dubbed Nuttin’ But Stringz or N.B.S., first gained recognition for their intense blending of classical music, jazz, R&B, and hip hop by playing throughout New York’s subway system. The talent and streetwise style of N.B.S. then landed them performances on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Today Show, and many others. Nuttin’ But Stringz have also been the key success story of VH1’s popular Save The Music program, and in turn, have become very involved with the important foundation. The duo has recorded a song for the charity, and in addition has hosted master classes.

Growing up in the inner city, Damien was the first to take up the violin at the ripe young age of eight. His passion for the sound was all the inspiration his older sibling Tourie needed to take up the violin too. Their combined uniqueness and brilliance, along with support from a close family, makes it easy for N.B.S. to push the envelope on their style and further mold themselves into future stars.

The track listing for Struggle From the Subway to the Charts is:
1. Broken Sorrow 8. Get Low
2. Struggle 9. Egypt Intro
3. Thunder 10. Egyptian In The Night
4. Beauty Intro 11. A Nu Day
5. Beauty 12. Dance With My Father
6. Suka 4 Her Interlude 13. Thunder Remix
7. Suka 4 Her
