Premiering today is www.freedeasvail.com a site dedicated to music fan involvement and appreciation where anybody that posts on Twitter about the band or ‘Likes” on Facebook can download the new track Wake Up and Sleep for FREE.

As the follow-up to Deas Vail’s last CD Bird’s & Cages the new release is 12 anthemic songs that rise with restless urgency and fervent optimism, underneath the soaring arrangements is a singer/songwriter album at heart with sweeping melodies, textured layers of guitars and keyboards, and of course in Wes’ passionate, wailing vocals and beautifully poetic songwriting.
