This may be a long read but we've got so much to share. So....here goes.
Over the last two months all of us NIGHTOWLS have been hard at work writing, rehearsing and recording demos for our next album. And, finally we are pleased to announce that we are heading back into the studio on August 18th to record our next LP.
Not only are we eager to work on new material but we are pumped to share that we will be recording this album at the legendary FAME STUDIOS in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. This is the studio where Wilson Pickett recorded "Mustang Sally"- where Aretha recorded "I Never Loved A Man"- where Percy Sledge recorded "When A Man Loves A Woman." People I could go on and on and on....(for more history go HERE!)
Also, if you know any history of Fame Studios then you will have come across the famed Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, "The Swampers." This group of studio musicians played on countless songs and hits and were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008. And, we are pumped to share that while THE NIGHTOWLS are recording at Fame Studio, we will be collaborating and recording with members of "The Swampers" for the album.
Finally, Filmmaker/Director Matthew Colecchi will be filming the entire process for an upcoming documentary film about Fame Studios, The Swampers, the history of soul music, our new album and the journey of THE NIGHTOWLS through it all.
It's truly a dream come true for a soul band like us to make music in such an historic studio and to be able collaborate with such talented musicians like "The Swampers." We are looking forward to what lies ahead and sharing this adventure with all of you.
We will be releasing more info about this project soon. Until then, feel free to email us if you would like more details or would like to get involved:
