As fans know, Drew has been on tour with Boz Scaggs on and off for years Boz is a monster song-smith, singer and guitarist. We know this. As of about a week ago, Boz officially signed on to the project. Now, this is so cool for the album his voice, his vibe, his writing and now his generosity. We welcome Mr. Scaggs to the project and are so fortunate to have him on board
Now lets be clear and up front here bringing on a guest star is so often done purely for marketing reasons and can often backfire! We recognize that and, although there is no doubt that having such monsters as Boz on the record will help our cause, we firmly believe that such participation will add immeasurably to the album musically and THAT is our primary drive on this entire project to make a great record. Names wont sell our record music will.
So what will Boz be doing? Simple anything he bloody well wants! As we enter our writing phase now, where collaboration will define the direction of the recording through its chosen material, Boz and Drew will decide such things but we all anticipate some real magic from Boz on this record goes without saying.
Stay tuned were not letting the cat out of the bag as yet, but we are anticipating the involvement of a few other guest stars from Drews touring and recording past. Seems a number of these folks want to be involved.
