|Edie Brickell & The New BohemiansEdie Brickell & The New Bohemians first stormed onto the charts with their 1989 debut Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars. The hit single, ?What I Am,? helped propel the band to multi-platinum status. This new recording represents the honest, unadulterated and utterly charming sound of a longtime band just being itself, with tracks that include ?One Last Time? and ?Oh My Soul.? Brickell calls this album a, ?true beginning,? the one effort in which she and her original band-mates perform together as a bonafide group. ?It?s as close to the combo?s live sound as a studio recording can get,? she says.Soulful, sometimes downright funky, grooves form the backdrop for Brickell?s compelling story-songs, engaging miniatures about lovers interrupting the housework to rekindle their spark, disco-loving palls figuring out what to do on a Saturday night after their money?s gone and a pair of young runaways confronting romantic uncertainty.Brickell met Bryce Goggin, known mostly for his work with Herbie Hancock, Trey Anastasio, Evan Dando, and more, just over 18 months ago. She asked if he would be interested in working with the New Bohemians. Last April, the band mates were all in the studio together again. ?With Bryce, we were all in the same room, playing live,? says guitarist Kenny Withrow. ?A lot of the tunes on the record are the performances we did then and there. At least three or four are completely live tunes and Edie kept a lot of her original vocal tracks.??We are thrilled that Edie & The New Bohemians decided to make Fantasy Records their new home,? say Robert Smith, Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing for the Concord Music Group. ?There?s a timeless, contemporary quality to her songs, and the band sound is as fresh and innovative today as when they first formed.? This is the first new pop/rock signing for Fantasy Records, home to another notable singer/songwriter, John Fogerty, in 25 years.Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians will perform at Central Park Summerstage in New York City on July 28. Prior to that, the band will play a very special show, June 23rd at Club DaDa in Dallas, one of the venues where they got their start. This performance will be recorded and filmed.
