There must be some magic in the air today and the stars are all aligned because I have some awesome news to share! Tony Harnell has just announced his return as vocalist for TNT.

I have told you earlier this year about Tony Harnell & The Wildflowers featuring  Ron Bumblefoot Thal. I also loved seeing Tony perform in January at NAMM 2013 along with Cassandra Sotos and Ron.  You can check out a video which we got of their great performance  here:

 

Tony Harnell  has an incredibly powerful and distinctive voice that I have loved for a long time! Tony was the lead singer of the Norwegian Rock band, TNT during the highlight of their career (1984 to 2006) and has over 30 albums of experience as well as numerous awards. It is so exciting to see that he will be returning to TNT. You can read his Facebook post here announcing the news:

So let’s all give Tony a warm WELCOME BACK and I can’t wait to find out about a US Tour!!!!

Also make sure to check out Tony Harnell & the Wildflowers EP. You can pick it up on  Itunes CDBABY or Tony Harnell’s website . On it you are treated to what I consider to be one of the most soul touching voices in music today. I have had a love affair with Tony’s voice for many years and on this EP, you have the addition of the incredible guitar work of Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal and  violinist extraordinaire Cassandra Sotos to enjoy.

Everyone has been talking about how the music industry has changed so much and asking what can they do to help keep new music alive and fresh. Well, now you can directly help create music! You can take part in Tony Harnell’s new project for his EP through Pledge Music.

Tony Harnell  has an incredibly powerful and distinctive voice that I have loved for a long time! Tony was the lead singer of the Norwegian Rock band, TNT during the highlight of their career (1984 to 2006) and has over 30 albums of experience as well as numerous awards. It is great to hear about his new project. Tony is working with his beautiful and  talented wife Amy Harnell, eclectic guitarist Jason Hagen and recently added electric violinist extraordinaire Cassandra Sotos. Then to add even more awesome talent to the lineup, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal from Guns n Roses has joined the band and will be working on the new EP. Also he will be performing at upcoming shows that don’t conflict with his Guns n Roses performances. So now what you have is; an all around exceptional lineup that has you craving their music! The best part is that you can become part of the process and help to get this EP created and finished through Pledge Music.

Pledge Music is an online platform that allows fans to help their favorite artists and gain exclusive content and choose from an array of prizes or experiences based on how much  they pledge. Pledges start as little as $8 for the download or up to $15,000 for a House Concert anywhere in the world! SOMEONE in California please pledge for the House Concert and make sure to send me an invite, that would be one concert that I would not want to miss!   Please take some time and head over to Tony Harnell’s Pledge Music page and see how you can get involved and be part of making music history.

This project has me really excited and there is also another bonus. By helping fund Tony Harnell’s EP you will also be helping to eradicate the horrible disease of cancer. Through Tony’s project, he is donating 10% of the money raised after he reaches his goal to Metavivor in honor of his Mom who lost her battle with the disease in 2009. Metavivor Metastatic Breast Cancer Research helps from support groups to funding vital research and continues to give hope. Cancer affects everyone since I truly have not met anyone who has not lost someone to cancer or know of someone who is suffering from the disease. It has become like the thread through all of our lives that connects us and makes us one. It is time we pull together and do what we can to fight this disease and you can enjoy great music at the same time.

Take a peak at Tony’s video for his project:

Now, how about enjoying some video from Cassandra Sotos, the Greek Violin Goddess:

So, let’s make some music together and get Tony Harnell’s project funded!

Enjoy, Marisol
