Hello friends, fans and followers of my musical endeavors..
As you can see from the video above, Radney Foster and I have reunited to make the first album we've done in twenty years. Here, we are doing the title cut called, "It's Already Tomorrow" and it sure feels that way. Doing another project together came out of a renewed bout of co-writing songs. The process was great fun and the reaction has been overwhelming. We were able to record the album as a combo with Keith Brogdon on drums (who plays with Radney on the road) and Tom Petersson (who plays bass with Cheap Trick). We got a few other friends like Sam Bush, Lloyd Green and Beth Nielsen Chapman to add their talents in a few spots and we had ourselves a new record!
While we're no longer on RCA Records like the old days, we released the cd on our own imprint called "Effin' Ell Records". With so many record stores having closed and major chains decreasing their music sections, we very much appreciate all the folks who found and ordered "It's Already Tomorrow". You'll be able to find it right here on my refurbished website: http://www.billlloydmusic.net. Please take a few minutes to look around. We're also thankful to the stores that continue to carry our record in stock.
Foster and Lloyd have been able to tour this last year and it's been great fun and wonderful to see so many old friends. We will continue playing Foster and Lloyd shows into the next year. We're already talking about recording another record down the line so we're not planning on letting another twenty years go by in between albums.
A good bit of time has passed since I released a solo album as well. "Back to Even" came out in 2004 and I was pleased it got such a positive response from fans and critics. I have recorded another one over the last few years in bits and pieces. I've been working with some talented friends who recorded and mixed these tracks for me. Since I was a young teen, I always wanted to make a record where I wrote, played and sang the whole thing myself so that's what I finally did this time around. I'm happy with the way it turned out. The album will be called "Boy King of Tokyo" and I hope to have it out in early 2012. You'll be able to find it on my refurbished website: http://www.billlloydmusic.net
There's a good bit of information on the site that you you'll also be able to find links there to all my musical projects that include Foster and Lloyd and The Long Players.
I lost control of my dot com website I had years back so PLEASE ignore the bill lloyd.com site that is out there.
As 2011 comes to a close and the holidays approach, it's an especially good time to take stock and give thanks for the good things. Thanks to you all for the support you've shown. Through my website you will see that we're offering a reduced rate on my cd titles in hopes that the gift of music is a part of your stocking stuffing. Hope to see you soon and the best to you and yours.
