Hi Everybody!! We are pumped after a frenetic year of writing and recording our first two projects “SHOTGUN” and “INVISIBLE LOVE”, and then going out around the country on the Graham Parker and the Rumour tour and meeting SO many of our wonderful contributors and friends. We love you all!!! Bob is rarin to go on this new CD --we just can't hold him down!!! He is gonna tear it up on the keys on this new one---been blasting Little Richard, Jerry Lee, and Billy Preston throughout the house to get him in the mood!
This new record is all about the keyboards! Those of you who have heard Bob know that he does his best when his fingers are attached to a Hammond organ. What you might not know is that Bob's own Hammond organ burned in a fire in New Orleans a while back. Well...with your help, we are getting him another one finally and this record is gonna blast that organ like you've never seen. Talk about setting an organ on fire! Get ready.
We have already started designing the songs and writing lyrics for “SET THE HAMMOND ON FIRE”. (Bob keeps humming and singing all day around the house!) Some of the songs were inspired by adventures and dynamics on the 2012 GP and Rumour tour and we'll be adding more from the 2013 tour adventures!
This will be the biggest and best music by Bob yet, with a superlative cross-section of musicians from our past projects and some surprise very special guests!! And...as usual..our juxtaposition of different musicians on this project is going to be very exciting! We have tried on each project to put together musicians who would not normally play with each other and on this new CD will be putting them WAY out of the genres they usually play in. LOOK OUT!
We need your help on this! We've got some pretty cool rewards too--including getting some personal recordings of Bob singing and playing your favorite song, and even having a few of you star on the new CD! Your kickstarter contribution will help us pay for the studio recording and CD costs and to pay the musicians. Please help the musicians!!!
Let's have some fun and rock on!! Love- RKR and Bob.
