Last night was extra special for me. Not only did I attend an up-close and personal Wishbone Ash concert, but I got to spend quality time with classic rock guitar icon, and one of my own personal guitar idols, Andy Powell. Thanks, Andy, Muddy, Bob, Joe for a great show. You guys smoked that place. 40 years later and you still melt serious face.
At the end of 2013, I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your relentless support all year long. Thanks to you, we've achieved more recognition worldwide, saw our download sales jump 600%, donated half of those sales to my favorite charity, "Half The Sky Movement" and stayed in the ReverbNation Top 10 bands of Ft. Lauderdale for more than 4 months. For that, I am exceptionally grateful.
In 2013, we released 3 singles, a live video performance of CSB, beefed up our website, and got all sorts of internet radio exposure.
In 2014, expect the release of our 3rd EP, " The Taste of the Chameleon", around late February. And, if all goes as planned, a live concert in the Spring. Details will be revealed as these ongoing things develop.
On behalf of David, Robert and myself, may you and yours have a safe, healthy and prosperous

Take it light,
Half the profits from the download of our new single, " Don't Listen To This Song" go to an excellent cause, Half The Sky, an organization dedicated to the empowerment of oppressed women around the globe, including ending human trafficking, forced prostitution and the continued sexual abuse of young women in third world countries.
Help me help young women like the one in this photo.

Don't Listen To This Song
Well, it was an interesting 2012. We saw the reluctant exit of the very talented guitarist Larry Smith, some serious studio upgrades,
a new EP, a new single and now, before January is over, the release of a another new single, guaranteed to rattle your cage and curl your hair. It's called (ironically), "Don't Listen to This Song"; a song about how people with closed minds should also come with closed mouths. It kicks serious ass and we're all really proud of how it came out. Be sure to let us know what you think.
This year, look for some live videos, live performances and more new music from CSB. Thanks for your relentless support.
Take it light!
As usual, we're back in the studio producing our next single, "Don't Listen To This Song", a song that addresses the concept that people with closed minds usually don't have closed mouths.
My old friend in the Netherlands, Eric Campfens, has just updated his Website, Blues Magazine, where he just reviewed our last EP, The Sound Of The Chameleon". Even though it's written in Dutch, thanks to Google Translate installed at the bottom of the page, you can read it in English here.
There's been some more studio upgrades, so expect our new recordings to sound even better than the last ones. We'll keep you posted as new tracks are finshed
The Only Choice (aka The"Bite Me" song) is a huge hit on JANGO Radio. Especially male listeners age 25-36. Thanks for the spins, Guys!
