DON FELDER–former guitarist of the Eagles, New York Times best-selling author and four-time Grammy® Award winner—will re-release his critically acclaimed solo album on March 25 on his Top Ten Inc. label via INGrooves Music Group. Originally released October 9, 2012, ROAD TO FOREVER: EXTENDED EDITION will include four additional songs: “Can’t Stop Now,” “Southern Bound,” “She Runs Free” and “Sensuality.” The album’s latest single, “You Don’t Have Me,” will be serviced to radio in April.
To celebrate the re-release, FELDER will hit the concert trail with Styx and Foreigner for “The Soundtrack of Summer” tour, which kicks off May 14 in Wichita, KS at the Intrust Bank Arena. He’s offering VIP packages, which are available at http://tickets.turnupgroup.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=23.
Of a concert during his 2013 season of tour, Tell Magazine (Philadelphia) called his performance “…stellar.” While VintageRock.com noted: “Don Felder’s second run through the area in 2013 saw some surprises, lots of Eagles, a great band and as always, fantastic playing from the man they call ‘Fingers,’ for very good reason.”
ROAD TO FOREVER originally debuted on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” chart at #27. “Girls In Black,” the album’s first single, reached the Top 30 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart while the second single, “Wash Away,” co-written by FELDER and Styx’s Tommy Shaw and featuring Shaw’s signature vocal sound, quickly jumped to #4 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart.
He wrote or co-wrote all the songs and performs guitar and lead vocals on the album, which boasts a long list of iconic guest performers including: David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Steve Lukather, David Paich and Steve Porcaro of Toto, Randy Jackson, Styx’s Tommy Shaw and others. It was produced by FELDER along with Robin DiMaggio (Posse 2.0 bandleader on the “Arsenio Hall Show,” United Nations’ Musical Director).
Before “The Soundtrack of Summer” tour kicks off, DON FELDER will be participating in a very special event Saturday, April 5 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. The 2nd Light Up The Blues Concert—An Evening of Music to Benefit Autism Speaks (the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization) will also include appearances by Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN), John Mayer, Brandi Carlile, Chris Stills. Also performing are special guests: rapper Watsky, indie artist Xolie Morra, Rio “Soulschocka” Wyles, Adam Mandela Walden, and Neal Katz. The benefit concert will begin at 7:30 PM and tickets are currently on sale through all Ticketmaster outlets, and online at: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/09004C4EAABFAF7A.
