I conceived Old Sins, Long Shadows as an anthology of musical short stories linked by themes such as love, loss, romance, sorrow, innocence, searching, and yearning. I wanted to recapture the joy I first felt (and continue to feel) making music by putting a contemporary spin on specific styles, eras, and in some cases, artists that resonated with me emotionally, and made my kid’s world come alive through sounds and lyrics. I’m an admitted Romantic and a sucker for a great melody (my 60s influence), as well as a guitar solo junkie (my 70s adolescence). Collaborating with an exceptionally talented and sympathetic team of friends, we captured the spirit, emotions, and vibe of a time when songs were an integral part of our lives, whether alone in our rooms, huddled together over a turntable, or blasting from a choir of transistor radios belonging to fellow-travelers stretched along a sunny strand of beach.
Old Sins, Long Shadows is my jingle-jangle morning; I invite you to come follow.
Brian Netzley has gained a reputation as a tasteful and versatile player who is sought after by everyone from local Southern California musicians to international touring artists looking for a solid, groovy bottom end. Brian’s melodic and powerful playing covers a multitude of styles, from Beatles tribute to classic country to straight-ahead jazz to gypsy jazz and everything in between.
Ed Eblen has played with an eclectic group of artists including country powerhouse Martina McBride, the folk side of country’s Kathy Mattea, and soulful Bill Champlin. He’s toured with Johnny Lee, Jim Messina, and Kenny Cetera, and performed and recorded Jere Mendelsohn’s diverse music for the last several years.
Darice Bailey has been playing keyboards since she was old enough to pull herself up onto the piano bench (and annoy her older brother, who was actually trying to practice.) She has performed, recorded, and toured with numerous bands, including The Coals, Grant Langston and The Supermodels, The Broken West, Actionslacks, and Eugene Edwards. When not on stage, her Clark Kent job is in nonprofit finance and fundraising.
Lou Fagenson is a three‐time THEA (Themed Entertainment Association) award-winning composer, orchestartor, and arranger. His music is played daily in theme parks worldwide (but not It’s a Small World–please don’t hate him). You might recognize his music from the animated series, Johnny Bravo, among others. His roster of clients includes the talented Mr. Mendelsohn, along with Al Green, Neil Diamond, Bonnie Raitt, Mandy Moore, and a host of others. When Lou was young, he wanted to grow up to be a Beatle, but not one of the Fabs. He aspired to be George Martin, who wrote all the “groovy parts.” At long last, on Old Sins, Long Shadows, Lou gets to fulfill that lifelong dream. Indubitably.
