News for May – June 2022
Hello Friends and Fans! After a long hiatus with NO NEWS from us – sorry! We are finally getting back on the bandwagon, literally!
New Album Coming!
There are great things on the horizon for me and the NFE this summer and beyond. First up is a new album project to tell you about, and DRUMROLL! It’s pretty spectacular! None other than Joe Craven is producing an EP album project for us, so far without a title, but will consist of only SIX songs, all (except one original) from the classic American Songbook! Yes! We are changing direction ONCE AGAIN!
The new album has begun taking shape as I write, with exciting new elements to announce. Our guest producer is also appearing on the album, offering percussion, violin and mandolin. Next kinda fabulous news is that we will also be joined by two other guest musicians, both Grammy winners! None other than the great Laurence Juber will guest on guitar, and Bill Cunliffe on piano! We are once again working with Frank Rosato at Woodcliff Studios in Los Angeles for recording, and this begins in July and continues through the summer and hopefully will be wrapping up in early September. STAY TUNED for word of this great new project!
