Hope you’re all having a good summer. Here’s a few highlights of what’s been shaking at Big City Towers.
CHRISTMAS ALBUM UPDATE
Tim and his Chronolord band mate Andy Cooke, have made progress on their upcoming album of new original Christmas songs. ’12 Hits of Christmas’ will be ready soon. The tentative release date is some time in October.
SURREY FUSION FESTIVAL
We had a great time playing at the wonderful Fusion Festival in Surrey BC. It really is the ultimate multi-cultural celebration of food, music and culture. Festival organizers are proud to work with communities representing different ethnicities and cultures from around the world, and honour the traditions and history that they share with attendees. The line up was Tim Readman: guitar and vocals, Prairie Wolfe: fiddle and vocals, Denis Franck: percussion and we really enjoyed entertaining the folks and bringing a little English and Celtic culture to the festival.
LOVE SONGS DARK AND BRIGHT BY THE EVENTUALLY BROTHERS – UPDATE
Thanks to all of you who commented on our press release and noted the error when we said Love Songs Dark and Bright is the third release from The Eventually Brothers. It’s very gratifying to know so many of you are paying attention and wished to point out that Love Songs Dark and Bright is the fourth release from The Eventually Brothers. Tristan Fabriani from the Big City office was inspired to put this photo collage together to remind us of this fact. It’s very helpful when it’s in pictures like this – numbers have never been our strong point!
Here’s the links to the main audio streaming, download and media services where you can find Love Songs Dark and Bright by The Eventually Brothers.
ENGLAND WOMEN’S FOOTBALL (SOCCER) TEAM WIN THE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
It was fantastic to see the England Women’s team aka The Lionesses beat Germany in the final and bring the European Championship back to football’s home. Alan Millen penned some lyrics to celebrate the ocassion, Tim set it to music and Andy Cooke put the final studio touches to it. The song is called When Destiny Called by Three Lions and you can hear it and watch the video here.
THE BLINTZ BAND
Tim has started writing songs with his very first band that formed in Seaham, County Durham in the North East of England in the early 1970s. The Blintz Band – Colin Baratt, Kevin Bainbridge and Ian ‘Ted’ Hay – have already released an album which you can find here. The new songs will eventually be on the next Blintz Band album and possibly another project too. One of the songs is Men Don’t Cry, which was inspired by a statue depicting a coal miner and his son which has been installed in Hetton-le-Hole, which is just down the road from Seaham.
