Newly Blue Is Go
April 1st, but no fooling around.... my new record For The Newly Blue has just been released. I love the way this one sounds and looks. Many of the tunes were written while on tour with Mark the last couple of years as well as some that were knocked out while sitting on the living room couch with the TV on and the sound off. You can listen to samples of all 12 tunes on the link above or through this CD Baby link, http://cdbaby.com/cd/richardbennett1. It is also available through Amazon and over the next few weeks will be available through every down load facility. By the way, if you get a copy through either CD Baby or Amazon, feel free to write a review after you've received the record... good or bad. It really helps others find out about the music.
I'll be leaving in a few days for another great tour of the world with Mark Knopfler. This one will all be overseas as we played North America last autumn with Bob Dylan. We're back on our own again now and looking forward to hitting the boards with a full length show. We'll spend a couple weeks rehearsing in London then begin the tour in Bucharest, Romania. Once we get rolling I'll start writing the Notes From The Road tour diary that will appear right here, almost daily.
Hope everyone had a good Easter weekend.
