Friday Evening February 18, 2005

Walter Egan – Walter’s chart-topping song Magnet and Steel has been recorded numerous times since he made it a hit in the late ‘70’s. His song Hearts On Fire, recorded by Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons, is still played on classic country radio. A frequent collaborator of Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, Walter’s four solo CD’s have just been released as a box-set.

Becka Brown – Performing Songwriter’s Clay Steakley says of her debut CD, “(She) delivers a glittering, astute collection of smart songwriting…her music can lift the heaviest heart.” Music Row’s Bob Oermann says “(She) obviously knows her way around a hook”. Part Joni Mitchell, part Rickie Lee Jones with bits of all of our other favorite intelligent female songwriters thrown in, Becka is passionate, gifted and very cool.

Reggie Hamm – Reggie’s had hits in gospel, rock, country, pop, and movies—and has racked up an impressive list of Dove, CMA, SESAC and Grammy nominations and awards. In Christian music, Rebecca St. James and Daily Planet have both had huge hits with his songs. A highly respected Nashville songwriter, Reggie is also a much sought-after producer and keyboard player.


Update from Walter on November 22, 2004:

"I have copies of the long anticipated English release, The Meaning of Live, which is a live recording from 1978 available for $20 (which includes shipping and handling)...I only have a few left of the double LP cd, Fundamental Roll / Not Shy, but should have more soon. This also is $20. Send money orders or certified checks to Walternative Recordings, 912 Rebel Circle, Franklin, TN 37064...and indicate if you would like it to gigs, on December 4th I will make an appearance at Bean Town in the Grassland area of Franklin, on Hillsboro Road; it starts at 8 pm. And I will be taking part in the Imagine No Handguns Tribute to John Lennon on December 10th at the Exit Inn in Nashville, along with my band."

"As I get ready for this week's trip to England where I will be playing at the Cavern Club in Liverpool (yeahyeahyeah), and the release of my first two LPs on CD, I wanted to tell you about the next gig for my band. We are playing at 8 PM upstairs at Bongo Java, (Bongo After Hours) on Belmont Blvd. in Nashville Saturday night October 30th. I will be a special night with my friend Steve Allen joining Ed, Ronnie, Chris and me. We will be playing a lot of songs from those first two albums, and I will have copies of the English import available. The price is $8 at the door. I hope you all can make it, it'll be a great night, trick or treat. Keep on rockin', Walter"
