Gettin' down to the end of 2015. What a year it's been! And the party's not over...
Last month we started cutting tracks for the 7th Nu Shooz album: BAGTOWN. (Songwriting began a year ago.) Our friend Sean Holmes was in our studio recording demo vocals over the last few weeks. Here's a little video of him cutting the backup vocals on the title track now...
We enlisted our son Malcolm Smith to do the cover art, and he did a fantastic job, integrating the 'bag people' into his drawn world. It fits the music perfectly. And what is the music like? John says "It's a cross between a 1979 Toyota and an American breakfast: two eggs, hashbrowns, and sausage patty...with a side of wry."
We're looking to serve that up around the 1st of May.
Watch as the artwork comes alive here...
In the meantime, if you're in the Phoenix area this month, we'll be at the Arizona State Fair with Lisa Lisa, Debbie Deb, Stevie B., and J.J. Fad. That's Saturday November 7th and you can get your tickets here. Should be a GREAT show.
That's all for now. For those of you who heard about Malcolm's car accident, we're happy to report that he's fine and fully recovered and suddenly has the ability to converse in fluent Croatian.
Valerie and John
