Cold Days in Nashville… hi to all!

Hi & hello!

This is the first message / blast I’ve sent out since the holidays — so, a happy post New Year to you all!
And, I know I’m not the only one trying to keep warm and dreaming of sunny spring times these days… sigh, I’m ready for the melting to begin! Let’s just say we’ve been making lots of serious slow-cooker stews and warm late night beverages here at our little abode to relieve the snap of cold…

However, amid the cold & ice there have been exciting things happening with music in the world of film & television:

If any of you caught the episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” last night, I hope you enjoyed the moment of “Fresh Pair of Eyes” that played a small ‘role’ in the show. Very stoked about it! For anyone interested in purchasing the song, you can head to iTunes and pick up a ‘winter bundle’ I’ve issued containing 2 songs (“Fresh Pair of Eyes” & “Heal for the Honey” as well as the live video version of “Go Easy Little Doves“) all for the LOW price of $2.99!

It’s also been a busy couple of weeks over at ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” — thanks to the show for using a bunch of my songs the last few episodes. Always fun to be apart of the show!

Speaking of PLL, the show has just released a soundtrack from the first season’s episodes. “Fresh Pair of Eyes” is included among this stellar line up of musicians and bands. I believe you can pick one up at any major cd retailer (or digital outlet, of course).

And last, but definitely not least, I’ve got a few festivals now on the books – I’ll be playing MacRock in West Virginia this April and Cornerstone Festival in Marietta, IL this summer… Can’t wait to see you all!

Take care and bundle up!!!

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
