Check out Tim Wi******er Music's record Into The Open

Friends:
Now that the dust has settled following the release of my new album 'Into The Open', I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere thanks and gratitude...

Thank you to my family and friends for your endless support and encouragement! This record is such a highlight for me on my musical journey and I'm truly grateful.

A resounding thanks to Jason Phelps for his many contributions in and out of the studio. Your guidance was invaluable!

I was incredibly fortunate to collaborate with such awe-inspiring musicians on this record (Ellie Begin, Jason Phelps, Pete Morse, Janice O'rourke)! Your personal touches elevated the music in ways I never imagined and I sincerely appreciate your involvement!

Lastly and most importantly, thank you to my Mom and Dad for without you, none of this would be possible! Peace & Love...

Check out Bad Combo's latest project!

Three new tracks coming your way on 12/18/2020!

Seeking shelter from the burning sh*t-tornado that is 2020 we dug our heals in and clenched tightly to our alt-rock and pop-punk roots.

For this project we shrank down from 10 members to just four, given obvious circumstances. Our hearts go out to those missing the people's horn section and back-up singers. We miss them too, dearly. Some day, guys!!

What we were left with is the original trio: Jed Bresette, Myles Simcock and John Kennedy. Mark Dumond was brave enough to join us in the studio and grace us with his talents behind the keys.

A huge thanks to Todd at Acadia Recording Company for providing a safe, professional place to play and of course for the sweet, heavy mix. And thank you, Pat Keane at Pat Keane Mastering!

Hi community. As many of you know Bandcamp is waiving their fees today which means any music you purchase from musicians today supports them fully. If you have some extra financial resources to keep your community afloat, this is a good way to leverage those. We've attached a handy photo of bands you can support this way. Please take care of each other and practice physical distancing, but social support.

Can't believe it's already been two years! It was a such an great experience putting this record together. It's always a treat to work with immensely talented musicians like Kelly Muse and Susie Pepper and of course their whole ensemble!

It's been nearly two years since we recorded our first album, First Dance, with the acoustic quartet. In celebration, we've put together a video using live clips from the studio. Enjoy!

Sad news to hear about the passing of Dave Noyes. I never met the guy, but he was corraled by Todd to play on our Friday At Six debut cd. Great musician, and from what I hear a great guy. Tough loss for Maine's music community.
Sitting with the new Buck Edwards record in the headphones this morning... LOVE that the drums are panned "drummer perspective", because well... that's how I hear them! Eric, Todd, dying to know... is the kick replaced on a few of the tracks? The mix spectrum is clear, focused and spread wide. Great job!
