Andy & Renee & Hard Rain announce the release of their 16th CD, Fuse 32! This 12-song album of original songs covers the broad musical styles that are the hallmark of the band's repertoire. Tender ballads and rock-n-roll ride together along the band's lyrical landscape.
We'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the making of this, our 16th record. To Marty Rifkin, our intrepid producer, engineer, band mate and friend, we couldn't do it without you. Special thanks to Kirk Makin for his fiery and soulful electric guitar solos, Edo Tancredi for laying down the groove so expertly, Gabe Witcher for his ethereal and fanciful violin solos, and to John Acosta for adding his wonderful work on the cello. Thanks to our friends and family for supporting us and our music through the years. To Patrick Summar, Lorna Barangan, The Little Lebowski Suburban Overacheivers, and all our friends, we love you.
In the 8 years since the release of our last album of original material, Many Miles to Go, several important people in our lives have passed away. Some lived a long life, some left us suddenly or way too soon. Recording an album is an emotional journey, and in our collective search for the appropriate arrangements and performances, our thoughts and conversations often turned to those we miss dearly. Always in our hearts: K.C and Evelyn Hill, Brian Gillis and A.J. Argento.
