Free downloads: Afternoon R&R Themes

We’ve posted both the regular and extended versions of the theme song for ESPN Cleveland radio’s drive-time sports talk show “Afternoon R & R“. Our thanks to the folks at WKNR 850 AM, especially to hosts Mike Reghi and Kenny Roda. As we’ve detailed several times before, the theme song is based[…]

June happenings

Ahh, it finally stopped raining here in Cleveland. It was getting just about biblical with the precipitation, but we finally seem to be getting some summer sun. With that bright and cheery fact in mind, we are thrilled to release our third album “As Big As You Can Get It!”[…]

Song evolution 3: the demo edit

When we last left our developing song (in part 2: a rough edit) we had a rudimentary song structure, but we were missing some good stuff: transitions, a chorus, a bridge. Usually after listening to the initial idea for a while, one or more of us will come up with[…]

We have sold out

We recently heard from CD Baby that we had sold out of copies of “Funk Out With Your Junk Out“. Err, what? Weirdly, the last few copies sold in the last few weeks. We’re not sure how people found out about it (tell us!) but we’re grateful for the opportunity[…]

Make it longer, they said
