01/23/13: THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS "ON THE VERGE" DROPS MARCH 19th!!!
The Fabulous Thunderbirds are On the Verge of an exciting new era as they release their breakout recording for Severn Records. Anchored by the big voice of original front man, Kim Wilson, On the Verge is a departure for the legendary blues rockers as they explore their soulful side with 10 original numbers recorded at our very own state of the art Severn Sound Studios. On the Verge marks a new beginning for the band with Wilson saying, we're defining our own genre. Using cutting edge technology and a collaborative, free-flowing creative process, the T-Birds have crafted a fresh sound, one that's sure to satisfy diehard fans while bringing new blood into the fold of the band's faithful legion. Taking cues from unexpected influences like O.V. Wright (Too Much Water) and Junior Parker (That's the Way We Roll), the T- Birds kick things off with their single, I Want to Believe, a driving number with a Lenny Kravitz-meets-Staple Singers vibe. Lovin Time has a Los Lonely Boys feel, while the Anker/Wilson original Hold Me melds classic rock with soul and reggae. Though the title may hint at a genre, don't let it fool you; Runnin' From the Blues is indeed about hard- ships though disguised as a pop number. Got To Bring It With You is a soulful rocker while the final track, Lonely Highway nods to the blues of the Stax tradition. Do You Know Who I Am? and Diamonds Won't Kiss You Back round out the all original 10-song offering. Backing Wilson are veteran T-Birds guitarists Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller, plus bassist Randy Bermudes and Jason Moeller on drums. Co-producer/-songwriter Kevin Anker guests on keyboards. In a career spanning over three decades, the Fabulous Thunderbirds are On the Verge with their most mature recording to date on the verge of greatness that is.
Produced By Kevin Anker, David Earl, Steve Gomes and Kim Wilson
