Final Note – Issue #6
So many things have happened in the lives of our One Louder Magazine interviewees recently that I thought I would share some of the more exciting success stories.
Andy Curran [A&R at SRO/Anthem, June, 2011]: Not one news story to report here, but two! First, the great Canadian triumvirate, RUSH, released their 19th (!!) full-length studio album – Clockwork Angels – in mid-June, 2012. I personally think it is their best album in nearly 25 years. Second, another great Canadian triumvirate, The Tea Party, have reunited and are set to release a live double album – Live From Australia – in mid-to-late September, 2012.
Chris Gibson [November, 2010]: Chris was Musical Director of Tuning the Air until their last performance in mid-December, 2011. He and his wife since founded the Seattle Creative Arts Center, opening their doors in late June, 2012. In addition to owning the SCAC, Chris is also the Music Education Director.
Chrys Johnson [November, 2010]: When we interviewed Chrys in late 2010, he was working in Woodinville, WA, as Artist Relations Manager for Ampeg amplifiers. He is now in sunny California, working his Artist Relations magic with EMG Pickups. EMG is lucky to have Chrys!
Bryan Giles [October, 2010]: Great things seem to keep happening for Bryan’s band – Red Fang – since the interview took place a mere 22 months ago. For starters, their excellent sophomore album, Murder the Mountains, was released. They have traveled to Europe FOUR times, including playing the famed Roskilde Festival in Denmark and the legendary Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany. The band has released two excellent (and very funny) videos: Wires and Hank is Dead. They’re headed for Brazil, playing the Porão do Rock Festival on September 7th, 2012, followed by a month-long U.S. tour, starting in late October, 2012.
Kyle Fletcher and Sean Enright [October, 2010]. The very first interview I ever did for One Louder Magazine! Kyle and Sean have made several upgrades to the JAM Recording Company, but the most recent ones include adding an MCI JH24 24-track 2” tape machine (with remote!) and an all-tube Hammond S6 organ. Contact Kyle or Sean at JAM if you’re looking to record some tracks…they do great work!
