Joey Vera Solo CD
PR reports: JOEY VERA announces details of his new solo album: My new solo project is finally leaving my prison cell. I am calling the project A Chinese Firedrill and the record is titled "circles". The record has 7 tracks and comes in at a total playing time of 46:00 - I used to love old records (uh, actual records... as in LP, a big round plastic thing you put on a turntable... no, I don't mean like a DJ thing... oh, never mind) Anyway I used to like when records were only about 30 -35 minutes of total playing time. My attention span is too small these days for a one hour record. Hopefully yours is too… As on my first solo record, I play and sing just about everything with the exception of drums handled by my buddy Greg Studgio…. Initially it will only be available through my website and www.cdbaby.com[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
