New Music On The Arrival From Singer/Songwriters Peter Rogan, Ted Russell Kamp and RJ Chesney

Arriving March 1st, is the debut release from singer/songwriter Peter Rogan. Rogan is a steelworker, who was a former winner of the Great American Song Contest, so he decided to throw his hat into the ring with this album titled "Still Tryin' To Believe." The new twelve track release begins with the sweet, southern rock groove of the title-song, "Still Tryin' To Believe," as Peter collaborates with established artists, Phil Madeira (Alison Krauss) and Wil Kimbrough. The album continues with the bluesy shuffle of "Kickin' The Can" and "River Man," before picking the tempo up for the country rocker "The Rolling Mills Blues." The oldest song on this release, dates back five years as Peter shows us his more delicate side on the ballad "Beautiful Honey." He finishes his new album with the slow jazz instrumental "Song For Keith' (which was a Top 5 winner in the 2017 Great American Song Contest), and a short 80-second "Reprise" to end the album on a high note.

Singer/songwriter Ted Russell Kamp is preparing to release his 11th studio album titled "Walkin' Shoes." It features thirteen tracks that revolve around love, travel and chaos. Kamp has had a steady flow of albums on the Americana charts, and this one should continue that achievement. The album begins with the swift pace of "Home Away From Home," as the tempo and lyrics fit the album's subject matter of travel perfectly. He continues with the country flavor of "Paid By The Mile," before slowing down for the bluesy ballad "This Old Guitar" that centers on recollection of the "good old times." Country artist Jaime Wyatt lends a hand on the sweet sounds of "Hearts Under Pressure" and "Freeway Mona Lisa," while fellow artist Brian Whelan works with Kamp on the uptempo swinging rhythm of "Get Off The Grid." Ted Russell Kamp wraps up his new album with a nod to The Band with the roots-rock feel of "Less Thinkin' More Drinkin'" and the all-out country rocker "Roll On Through The Night."

Singer/songwriter RJ Chesney is preparing to release his new album "Amateur Revolution" in April. This album has been almost four years in the making, that began with a simple phone call about a proposition to film Chesney as a local artist performing in Los Angeles. This lead to the meeting of Chesney with Norwegian producer HP Gundersen, and the result is this new album. It features a dozen tracks that carry a classic country vibe as displayed in the two opening songs, "Splendors Of The Earth" and "Pull Down The Moon." You will fully appreciate RJ's songwriting on the gentle ballads "A Place Just For Me" and "Do You Remember Me?," while "Proud Of You Child" carries a very nostalgic vibe. He finishes his new album with the dark emotion-fueled "Death, An Old Widows Peak" and the more inspirational, light-hearted "Rise Up And Sing."
