A Touch Too Much (Official Artwork)

A Touch Too Much Candy Apple Blue ft. Nick Bramlett (Matt Pop Mix)

Candy Apple Blue - A Touch Too Much (Matt Pop Mix)
featuring Nick Bramlett 

We are totally stoked to announce to you that we have a brand new single coming out on Feb. 10th (just 4 days before Valentine's Day) called A Touch Too Much. A Touch Too Much is about having a strong physical attraction towards somebody that you don't really have room for in your life. 

The song features a confident and passionate vocal performance from the amazing Nick Bramlett. And the real cherry 🍒 on top for all three of us is that Dutch music producer Matt Pop remixed the track to pop perfection! This stellar dance floor anthem is sure to make you guys bop! Its cleverly written lyrics, strong melody, powerful vocals, and shimmering production will surely put a big smile on your face. 

We shot some music video footage last night and now we are hard at work in the video editing process. In the meantime, we wanted to share with you the official artwork for this 2-track digital single. A Touch Too Much is taken from our forthcoming coming album, Breakthrough! So mark your calendars for Feb. 10th!

I Had an Awesome “Knight”!

I had an awesome "Knight". I got the chance to meet hit songwriter extraordinaire Holly Knight. She has been a huge songwriting inspiration to me for as long as I can remember. Holly Knight recently released her first book. It's a fantastic memoir about her songwriting and life experiences in the 1980s titled "I Am the Warrior".

Holly Knight composed some of "The Best" songs of that decade! The Best for Tina Turner, Love is a Battlefield for Pat Benatar, The Warrior for Scandal featuring Patty Smyth, Love Touch for Rod Stewart, Ragdoll for Aerosmith, Obsession for Animotion, Never for Heart, and Just Between You & Me for Lou Gramm just to name a few.

Plus she also had hits on her own as a solo artist and with her bands Spider and Device. (e.g. Heart Don't Fail Me Now, Better Be Good to Me, and Hanging on a Heart Attack) It was a real privilege to meet this talented and beautiful lady!
