I hope you're all rocking out this spring season. Nashville is beautiful right now. While I'm not having the easiest time getting shows around here (don't ask me why - I've been trying), I do have good news on the music front.
As I've been mentioning for a while, my band Friendship Commanders has completed our first set of recordings and we're releasing them as an EP called Amos. The digital release should be in the next month or so, and we're working on making some vinyl happen, as well. If you're into hard, fast, melodic rock, then you'll probably dig what we're doing. Please like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with our shows and the EP's release.
My other project, which is both long-term and long-distance is finally putting a full-length album out this summer. THEY RULE is something I started with Michael Pereira a few years ago to pay musical homage to the sounds we grew up around in Miami in the eighties. Our first single, "Microphone Love" was released around this time last year, if you want to check it out on our site. The album is called Make-Ups & Break-Ups and should be in your headphones by July. You can also stay in touch with what we're doing via Facebook and Twitter.
Third, I co-produced the debut album for Boey Russell, a kick-ass musician on all fronts. He's having CDs pressed up right now, and you can already check out about half of the songs on his Facebook page, as well as see his first video - which is brilliant, I might add.
And me? I'm doing some stuff on my own, too. It's a bit different than what I've released in the past, and it's only partially cooked, so I'll wait to talk about it. But, I'm having fun, so that's pretty good.
