Hey to all of you out there!
Feels like I’ve been “out there” too! So much left to complete before the end of the year, I keep making to-do lists. 2014 is going to be a rocking year for TFB, I can feel it!!!!!
The Park West show in Chicago was a blast. It was really fun doing some of the new tunes live, many for the first time! The crowd reaction was great. Think it’s universal; our new song
Fat Boy is a real cool rocker!!!! :) Check out pics from the show!
So now it’s November. 2013 for me has been a blur. It just has. The other day, a stranger was talking about how many days until Christmas. I was stunned, and interjected, you’ve got to be kidding!!!
So for Christmas, I have a surprise. We are going to make Maristar available for purchase. Will be on web site, CD Baby, ITunes etc. Maristar was the project before the completion of Ask. It’s a really long story, but Ask became the commercial product, and included 7 tunes off Maristar. But…..Maristar had 7 other tunes that many of you probably have never heard; Red Horse Saloon, Coffee Pot, Knee Pads…………..to name a few. Maristar is a must for all TFB fans if you don’t have a copy.
In the meantime, we’re working on graphics for the new Don’t Ask CD and an EPK, video, all to be released at the same time, hopefully in January, 2014. There is a lot going on.
And I have to mention again, Ask and Don’t Ask, will be available on vinyl!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right after I got back from Abbey Road last month, I had to buy a new turntable to play both. Vinyl is so cool. Feel like I am a part of the vinyl revolution. Seriously, it’s coming back; I have met many who agree it takes listening to music back to a magical experience. I have missed that in this digital world we live in.
I have been rehearsing with the band a lot too. We want to really get in the zone with live performances on the new tunes. They are so cool and require a lot of detailed parts that come together as one. Also, we’re working on some tunes from past albums Chasing An Illusion and Abstract Man, to start re-doing live. Great music we don’t want to forget about. Tunes like Lollipop Guild and Midnight Pass. Great rockers.
Joel, Ryan, John and Jordy all say hi. We love all of you!
