We're starting to mix the new LITTLE FAITH CD, titled "Shelter". Lots of vocals on this one and a wealth of great material, from traditional spirituals to classic gospel to contemporary "message" songs. In case you haven't been getting our reminders, we're at Viva Cantina every Sunday for a while, from 1:00 til 3:00 in the afternoon, perfect for after church or late brunch. We've been busy with other projects, too. Guitarist Nelson Blanton just finished recording guitars for the new Billy Ray Cyrus record. Drummer Jesper Kristensen has been on tour with Wilson Phillips and guitar legend Pete Anderson. Vocalist Nadia Duggin was recently in Mexico with Mass Ensemble. Singer Ray Wolffe is finishing production on the debut album of country rock band 5th And Birmingham and organist Jack Maeby wrote horn arrangements for Portland-based Kasey Anderson and the Honkies' new CD. Busy, but we've been fortunate to have the services of drummer Jim Martin and guitarist Craig Ferguson. Craig plays some high flying pedal steel on the new album, too.
We'll be appearing at Ernest Troost's Juke Joint Gang series again on May 5th at the Talking Stick in Venice. We're looking at early June for the record release, details about a release party coming soon. Love, Peace and Keep the Faith!
