Tré Nixon Proves Himself to be a “Hard Workin’ Party Animal”

By Margaret Adams

Tré Nixon, up and coming rock artist is kicking in the door to the rock scene with his debut single, “Hard Workin’ Party Animal.” The Los Angeles-based recording artist, producer, and songwriter and his band, The Knockout, are planning to lead a rock revival for the ages.

While Nixon is currently based in Los Angeles, he is from San Jose; his music is heavily inspired by the true rock sounds of the 70s and 80s, specifically with emphasis on Motley Crue’s contribution to the rock genre. His debut album, named after the single “Hard Workin’ Party Animal,” is mostly inspired by his time working three jobs and living out of his car, while he was writing the album.

The song is a high-energy and dynamic pop-rock track that emphasizes the nature of Nixon himself: a “hard workin’ party animal.” The song paints a picture of a man working to chase his dreams of being a rockstar; the audio clip of a crowd cheering in the beginning is especially emblematic of dream of a “rock-star lifestyle.”

I can’t believe how far I came From way back when, I said my goodbyes
Everyone said “Tré , you’re gonna ruin your life man!”
They say uh, “You can’t sing, you can’t dance, you’re gonna lose”
I got style and passion like an animal

Overall, “Hard Workin’ Party Animal” is a must-listen track; not only did Nixon utilize his own experiences craftily and expertly, but he executed the notable sound of the rock genre perfectly.

Fans of Prince, Poison, and Motley Crue should check out Tré Nixon’s debut single “Hard Workin’ Party Animal.” Listen to the track on our Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
