We finally got back to the
studio today to continue working on the new cd. Here's a clip
of Roger Manzo laying down the lead guitar on the song Light Up Ahead.
We're totally looking forward
to getting back into the studio this year to finish recording the new
4 song cd we started back in 2010. Our good friend Mike Koenig passed
away last year after a long fight with brain cancer. Mike recorded our
last cd A New Skin" and was recording the 4 new songs we are currently
working on. Roger bacame a dad last year and I bacame a dad in February
of this year so finding the time to find a new place to record and get
things going again has not been easy. My goal is to get the cd done this
year and get the band back up on stage again later this year or sometime
next year. In the meantime I'd like to thank everyone that has continued
to support us and listen to our music. We are still in and out of the
top 10's on broadjam.com,
We cannot thank you enough for your continued support!
Happy New Year everyone!
2011 was a year of many ups and downs for SMD. We are entering the new
year with a positive outlook and looking forward to accomplishing many
goals including our goal to continue progress on our new cd that we started
last year. We are also going to try really hard to start playing shows
by the summer of 2012. We have gained many new friends and fans over the
past year and we would really love to be able to bring our music to you
in a live setting. We hope that this is the year that we will make that
Check out this video
