Rosie Update

The Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland was completely awesome to me this year when they invited me to bring in my multi media performance on January 25th with a 64 picture slide show of Janis' life. With a live band of stellar musicians featuring Marti Brom and myself on vocals, we had a blast telling stories about Janis and her life. In an era where Wanda Jackson, Jerry Lee, and Elvis were the kings and queens of early rock n roll, Janis (who was called The Female Elvis) was also a very integral part of the group of young artists who helped give birth to rock n roll back in the mid to late 1950's. I feel that it's so very important to help preserve her name as one of those early pioneers of female rockabilly and rock n roll by bringing this awesome recording out to her old fans as well as the new ones discovering her each and everyday. If you do not know about Janis Martin, I suggest that you take some time to google her and check her out on youtube and the internet to discover for yourself what made her a rare and special artist to the end.

Other news:I am in the middle of recording a brand new Rosie CD, i's a rocker and I hope to have it out this year, so keep checking back here to see when that will be released on Bloodshot Records. I'll be hitting the road to bring the Janis Tribute to a theater hopefully near you and will be performing with my band too. So please ck the tour dates here for more information. I will try to be better at keeping up here so thanks for stopping by my website as well as, FB, Twitter etc. to find out what's new and exciting this year. Keep the faith and stay true to yourself.
