The long-awaited third album by 8X8, Inflorescence, will be released on CD and available for doliwnload in August. The vinyl LP will be released on Sugarbush Records in the UK in early October. Click here to hear a sampler of the upcoming album.
I have been writing songs with fellow Murderers’ Row member, David Foster, and a bunch of these were premiered at the Treehouse @ 2A on 7/3/16. Each song was sung by a different murderer, and the crack band, as usual, over delivered. Hopefully these will be recorded this coming fall. Clips are up here.
Murderers’ Row is a semi-loose connection of musicians and friends who tackle classic albums and give them their own spin. I play guitar and sing in this combo. On 6/7/16 we took on Dylan’s ‘Blonde On Blonde’. The place was jammed and a most enjoyable time was had by hall. Clips are up here.
