Super bowl weekend has its moments of magic. This song released by STEVE AUGERI is no exception to that. Penned as the debut single from his forthcoming album “SEVEN WAYS ‘TIL SUNDAY”, Augeri draws from his past as he looks toward the future. The opening has a throwback to the Blues Brothers while other parts feel as though you’re transformed back to Bakers Street with Gerry Rafferty. This is thanks to the electric energy coming from David Freeman on saxophone. The band as a whole found the perfect pocket and vocally, this is the best Augeri has sounded since Journey’s 2001 album Arrival. I’ve enjoyed most of what Steve has released during his solo tenure, this is the cream of the crop best material to date. Not only did this exceed my expectations but it leaves me wanting more… in a good way! I cannot wait to hear this album from start to finish. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
New release from Ollie Wride
I am ecstatic finally share with you the first in a wealth of material I’ve been working on during the past 15 months. Suddenly having heaps of down time presented an opportunity for introspection and experimentation and whilst we couldn’t travel or meet face to face; The music that I will be sharing has been my most collaborative work to date.
Striking up relationships worldwide with a host of inspiring and talented producers really catalysed my desire to make the human element of my music centre stage. Lyrically it’s more honest and closer to home, instrumentally performed and recorded by living breathing musicians. The result is what I feel to be some of my best work and I can’t wait for you to hear it. What started lyrically as a self evaluation of my impatience vs tenacity, took on an entirely new significance during the pandemic.
Thanks for sticking by me, your comments, encouragement and support. I never take it for granted.
This is “A Matter of Time”
The single drops November 26th, 2021

London Ontario rockers Blu Bones have just sent shockwaves throughout the music world reemerging from a 25 year sabbatical with an infectious little ear worm entitled She’s Got A Way With Love.
Lead singer Gord Prior recently spoke with Classic Rock 98.1’s Kate Wright about what motivated the group’s return where he credits the combination of fans constantly asking if there would ever be a chance of a Blu Bones reunion with the pandemic lock down being the other driving factor behind providing the world with some much needed positivity in these unique times.
Gord also mentioned that while a full length album currently isn’t in the cards the guys hope to do more tracks moving forward.
As a fan of Blu Bones tremendously underrated debut album Sink, She’s Got A Way With Love doesn’t quite have the grungy angst that I fell in love with however for a group of musicians that have been in the game for well over two decades I’m digging the psychedelic undertones masterfully clashing with some brilliant 1970s power pop hooks.
Blu Bones are lead vocalist Gord Prior, guitarist Boris Novosel, bassist Barry Donaghy, drummer Steve Thomas and Ray Coburn on keyboards.

Hey gang, I’m happy and thankful to say that the writing and recording process has been moving along better than expected on my first official full solo offering. Half the album’s gone on to the mixing stage. It’s akin to sending your kids off to college. An absolute degree of separation anxiety going on there but I know I’m in the best of hands, that is the hands of Steve Mandile I’m very thankful to have collaborated with a couple of Steve Augeri Band alumni Adam Holland and Craig Pullman on a handful of songs, one to two with Neal and Jon and remainder, a few ambitious and left of center than one might expect from yours truly. I’lll leave it at that. Wishing you all a great safe and healthy day and I’ll be back with any and all updates when I have something to share. – Steve Augeri
