Dec 28, 2009

Thanks for a great 2009. Recent highlights include Andrew Petersen’s album being made Album Of The Week on ABC Coast FM, which was very gratifying – this album manages to convert anyone that hears it, and we expect that 2010 will continue to bring new fans for this extremely talented singer and songwriter. Other recent happy events – Grand Atlantic has started appearing in the Best Of 2009 lists, including the PowerPop Show Top 10 Albums (www.myspace.com/powerpopshow) with more to come. And Rocketsmiths have been busy, spending the whole of December recording a new album which will be mixed in January and should be out sometime around Easter.

Coming up in 2010, expect more frequent live gigs from Andrew as he gets a new band shaken down. GA travel to the US and Canada for a series of shows including SXSW (Austin TX) and Canadian Music Week (Toronto) as well as shows In LA, Monterey, San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Houston, with negotiations for a Japan tour in June happening right now. And of course the return to the live scene of Rocketsmiths, new album in hand, ready to rampage around the country with their unique brand of indie-dance-punkabilly. Can’t wait – should be an amazing year!

Thank you to everyone who supported these acts through the year, by coming to shows, buying records, playing them on the radio, offering gigs, or just generally providing support – it is genuinely appreciated. Have a safe holday period, and our best wishes for 2010!
