Just a reminder... - April 1, 2012

April 1st 2012......NEW DAVE EDWARDS BAND MUSIC HAS BEEN RELEASED!!

Entitled PICKIN’ SINGLES, the music, a celebration of rock and roll, has been uploaded into iTunes and will be available at the shows soon. The project came about when Dave, manager Jeff Amato & producer Bob Monteleone began looking for new material to record. Dave, who has a ton of songs that have never been released, began stripping the songs down to very simple, direct arrangements. Experimenting with a core band of acoustic guitars, stand up bass, drums and then enhancing them with mandolin and accordion, and for the first time, pedal steel. The songs developed a timeless personality & energy that became a direction none of us had thought to look to before. The results include a raucous take on the Frankie Miller classic “Be Good To Yourself”, the almost rockabilly “I’m Wonderin’” (which is a distinctive highlight in the current stage show), the Buddy Holly like “Rock N Roll Fever”, the tex-mex meets Detroit muscle of “I Just Don’t Know What To Do (About You)”. For good measure there is the testifying track “I Found Love” to close the release, of which the accompanying music video had been seen nationally on the COOL MUSIC NETWORK (http://thecooltv.com) which is a true music video network as well as 15,000 fast food restaurants including the entire Wendy’s chain!

What might be the most significant cut on PICKIN SINGLES is the haunting remake of The Look’s “Can’t Think Right” from their very first album all those years ago. The remodeled version is the second take and features Larry LeBeck from the Orbitsuns on pedal steel. It’s about as intimate a performance as you can get and 30 years later, it’s a new song to many!

Other players on the new record include Jimmie Bones from the Twisted Brown Trucker Band & The Howling Diablo’s, Mark Iannice from Jill Jack, Mitch Purdy from the Belle Islanders and the lovely Mrs. April Monteleone on harmony vocals. The members of Dave’s live band: Rusty Russum, Lou Abraham & James Megerian play on “Be Good” and the rhythm section for the rest of the CD are Ken Pesick & Myles Rutledge. We hope you enjoy the new music as much as we enjoyed creating it......

Where we are at! - February 14, 2012

Hello Friends!

Well... 2012 is off to a cage rattlin' start with 4 shows under our belt so far with new guitarist JC Whitelaw.

Early this year, Lou Abraham amicably left to work with The Teen Angels. So, to keep the band in shape while we try to figure what we want to be when we grow up - our good friend JC Whitelaw offered his services.

The band - to the common eye and ear - may not seem much different but there has been a new fresh energy that wasn't necessarily missing but is nice to have none the less.
We have no real idea how long this run will last - so, its a great time to get out and see a show.

Everyone on stage is having a good time - and - there have already been 2 nights in this configuration that have brought out the best in Dave - who - quite frankly - is never less than great anyway. Just watch the hair on your arms and you'll know what I mean.

We are looking at many projects for 2012 - here's a loose look of what we are planning - if all goes our way:
1.) Some new Belle Islanders recordings... and hopefully a new release soon, 2.) Dave has begun working on Pickin Singles volume 2 - which will be entirely original songs...
(Of course now that I have said that - it won't be)

and then there is a 3rd project yet to be defined that we hope develops by summertime.

Here is what I know:
We had a great year in 2011. The success of the I Found Love video continues to grow and we are fighting for & acting on every opportunity to grow awareness of Dave and his music.

We are working very hard on all aspects of our "thing" - trying to play great, writing well, grow our reputation and challenging each of us to reach inside and pull out every ounce of talent that we have - collectively and individually - every chance we get.

Friends, Let the world know - we are just getting started!

WIth love on this Valentines Day in 2012
The Dave Edwards Organization

Happy New Year! - January 3, 2012

Happy 2012 to all of you!

As we jump into the new year... with new activities coming and new shows and new music certainly on it's way too - we want to take a second and THANK YOU for an incredible 2011!

We are not an easy band to categorize and the different projects Dave did last year - The Belle Islanders & The Dave Edwards Band - only become successful if you enjoy them - AND THAT HAS DEFINITELY BEEN THE CASE!

This year I'm sure will find us at least starting back to basics - but you never know where that journey will go...

When the Lone Survivor record was handed in and ready to be mastered, Dave played me "Written All Over Your Face". What a song! I couldn't get over it and it had to be recorded - and Thanks to Bee, Bob, Bones and Harmonie Park Studios - we got a hot one!
When we were going over material for what became Pickin' Singles, I heard "I'm Wonderin'" for the first time - another OMG moment. That song is another one - it just rocks away, so solid. And so much fun to play every night.
Everything on the "new" CD is like that for me - It's magic to hear what it was and then to hear what it ENDS up being. Dave is proud of every thing he has done - and Pickin' Singles is certainly a highlight of his career and continuation of his artistry!

What's coming next? I don't think we know yet - for sure. There looks to be a second Belle Islanders CD to be recorded. We haven't talked much about Dave's next solo project - he always has ideas and I always have ideas and somewhere between the two of us - we try and get it right.

The nice thing about "We're Gonna Rock" & even "You Can't Sit Down" is that as BIG to their time that they were - YOU have always allowed Dave to move past nostalgia by supporting his new music both on stage & on record.

WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THIS AND THANK YOU!

So, in closing - thanks for reading! THANKS for being there. Thanks for coming out night after night.
Thanks for letting us share the music with you!

Best,
Jeff Amato

PICKIN’ SINGLES – Overview:
6 new songs from The Dave Edwards Band which were recorded in the last year while waiting out the muse for the next full length project.
Pickin” Singles sports a roots rock sound where the instrumentation focused on Acoustic guitars, stand up bass, mandolin, accordion, piano, harmonica - instruments you might find on a front porch gathering of musicians.
The collection features 3 previously released numbers "I'm Wonderin", "Rock N Roll Fever" & the latest single/video "I Found Love".
I FOUND LOVE - VIDEO LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeDvhcyAheQ
The 3 new recordings are "I Don't Know What To Do (About You)" featuring Mark Iannce from The Jill Jack Band on accordion, the Frankie Miller nugget "Be Good To Yourself" (the only song here performed by Dave’s stage band The Look) and a visit down memory lane with the re-recording of "Can't Think Right" from The Look's debut that features The Orbitsons' Larry LeBeck on Pedal Steel.
Rounding out the band are Jimmie Bones Trombly (Kid Rock, Howling Diablos) on all keyboards & harmonica, Bob Monteleone (The Look, Belle Islanders, Black Market) on guitars, Mitch Purdy (Black Market, Belle Islanders) on "Box" and mandolin and introducing Kenny Pesick on Stand Up Bass & Myles Rutledge on drums.

This is some of the best and most intimate music DAVE has every made and we hope you love it as much as we do!

A true give and take environment that builds throughout the evening. We are signed up for 2 more shows this fall (on Saturday nights) – as well as some DUO performances with Dave Edwards and Bob Monteleone on upcoming Sundays beginning on 8/28/11.

The Dave Edwards Band video for “I FOUND LOVE” is almost done and will be airing nationally across the US. Look for it on iTunes very shortly too.

In Music news: Next track to be released soon - I FOUND LOVE - The music video is currently being edited in CA. This May - look for the Dave Edwards Band to perform on Friday 5/13 in Rochester and Sunday Night 5/15 at Dylans in Grosse Pointe. This is the band with acoustic guitars, stand up bass, keys, pedal steel - and Dave's soulful voice right on top. I like to call it "Front Porch Music"....
Imagine a group of musicians gathering on a front porch jamming and trading licks and songs.... Camp fire going... We are taking this vibe to the stage.

We are currently in the mixing stage with (2) new songs:
"I CAN'T THINK RIGHT" (redone 2011 style with a haunting intimate arrangement)
"BE GOOD TO YOURSELF" (recorded with the current LOOK line up of Louie Abraham, Rusty Russum & Sir Jim Megerian - with Bob Monteleone producing & playing some funky ass guitar too)!

We are in the overdub stage with 2 other new songs as well..... SO THERE IS LOTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO.

Don't forget to download the just released tracks
I'M WONDERIN' (heard on WCSX) & ROCK N ROLL FEVER (heard on WDET)!
Both songs are up on iTunes and Amazon digital!

We need you to help by spreading the word to your friends.
We thank you for your support.
We appreciate that you let us reach out to you week after week.
SEE YOU AT THE SHOWS!

Press Release - January 12, 2011

From the desk of JEFF AMATO - LOOK RIGHT, LLC – jamato3836@aol.com
www.thelookde.net
DAVE EDWARDS’ NEW SOUND LOOKS BACK …
In late 2010, DAVE EDWARDS, founding member/lead singer of THE LOOK began to plan his next solo music project. Someone says that you should try and recreate the vibe of Sam Cooke’s classic album NIGHT BEAT. This is the phase of finding material; listening to the music, look at more material…. Bob M says let’s try and cut “Nobody Knows The Troubles I’ve Seen” (NIGHT BEAT’s opening number) – and don’t you know that they cut it exactly like the record…. stand up bass and all.
Dave meanwhile has been going back to the oldest records in his cabinet, artists such as Buddy Holly, Dion, The Everly Brothers … more tracks are cut, ideas taken and then taken apart … Dave decides to record his own songs- an album’s worth – a true first for the man.
Then just to make it even more interesting – the rule is to keep the sound very roots based – acoustics, stand up bass, mandolins, piano, accordion – arrangements that straddle Pop, Country, Tex-Mex, Blues…. The result? Well – you got the first taste right here.

“I’M WONDERIN’” & “ROCK N ROLL FEVER” are the first 2 releases (already available at iTunes & Amazon’s digital store) in what will be a succession of digital releases to come during the spring & summer of 2011.

On tap: the beautiful “I Found Love” (which features Jimmie Bones on piano & organ), a Tex-Mex joint “I Just Don’t Know What To Do” which is a duet with the illustrious Jill Jack and a haunting revisit to one of The Look’s signature tunes “Can’t Think Right” which features the Pedal Steel talent of former Nashville resident Larry LeBeck .

Once again the voice at the center is the familiar soulful sound of perhaps Michigan’s best all round vocalist DAVE EDWARDS.

“I’M WONDERIN’” b/w “ROCK N ROLL FEVER”
HANZIE RECORDS - AVAILABLE NOW
Also available: TAKE ANOTHER LOOK (2004), SECOND LOOK VOLUME 1 (2008) and LONE SURVIVOR (2009)

2 New Songs Released - January 3, 2011

2 NEW SONGS UP ON ITUNES! - Jan. 3rd 2011
