And it's true - the "Secret" is out!! I recorded four songs at Andy Magoffin's House of Miracles studio up in Cambridge this May and the tracks are up and ready to download from right here on my music page on allisonbrown.ca or on Bandcamp... these four new recordings will be included in an upcoming full-length release. The physical CD version of "Secret Identity" features four 'hit' tracks from "Viper", as well as two live bonus tracks for a ten song collection. To celebrate the ten year anniversary of my original 'blue coupon' included in my 2003 "Pizza & Beer" demo, I've revived the blue coupon and included it again in physical copies of "Secret Identity"...! Limited edition copies are available at Grooves in London, and at Red Cat Records in Vancouver.
My August adventures keep me mainly at home in Southern Ontario, but I will be scooting up to Summerfolk to record a special feature for "Border City Roots" on CJAM... and I'm sure I'll be jamming at the campfires and on the open stage...
Coming up next on my concert calendar is the big Zurich Bean Festival in Zurich, Ontario on August 24th, catch our set at 1pm (With Uncle Dan & Jeff Kahl on bass), then stick around for the bean dinner and bean dance - if you miss it, you'll wish you would have bean there..!
Then later on September 1st, I'll be in Amherstburg for the Tall Ships Festival along with my pals Chris Crossroads and Vera Colley as a trio...
Here's a couple of tour highlights:
