Members Only finished off the last production bits of Let's Run Away in Los Angeles with producer Remington and totally revamped the sound of Sincerely. Next up we finalize Sunday Funday and Resolute's production elements in studio in Dallas. We're developing a new Youtube cover strategy to expand our social media reach. Our new management team is going to kill it!
Members Only is in the middle of retooling their live show. The team is getting a new key board from Phoenix. Speaking of Phoenix, guitarist Christi Rodriguez is spending time in the desert city with her new gal pal. Erika Meredith is working on new single art for upcoming monthly single releases, while Jay is planning a trip to LA to work with Remington on some production tweaks to the final songs we cut. Stay tuned!
June ended with the photo shoot for Jay Roecker and Members Only's debut album, 'Labor of Love.' Photography is by Jay Fuertez of JayFuertez.com. Makeup is by Lilina Giddens - https://www.facebook.com/MakeUpByLilianaG and album concept was developed by both Jay Roecker and Jay Fuertez. It was a fun meeting of artistic synergy. We received word our work was so impressive, Emage Magazine booked Jay Roecker and Members Only for a spread promoting our music: https://www.joomag.com/en/newsstand/emage-magazine-issue-2/0542823001402266812 We couldn't be more thrilled with the interest and promotion. Jay Roecker and Members Only also had an impromptu performance along side Joanna Holstein of Sweden at Chill Wine Lounge in Fort Lauderdale. This swank lounge is cool and so chill. It's a definite must visit. http://chillwinelounge.com Joanna is a masterful singer/performer in her own right. Her music may be previewed at joannaholstein.com . We anticipate new tracks from our producer Remington shortly. Stay tuned for more fresh hits!
May brought a lot of changes to Members Only. We completed recording all vocals for our upcoming album "Labor Of Love" and had some personnel changes also. We bid adieu to Corey McCorey so he could focus on his church work and music education while welcoming back up vocalist and guitarust Christ Rodriguez. June 22nd we shoot our album images with the amazingly talented Jay Fuertez. His work may be previewed at http://www.jayfuertez.com/ The album cover will be mechanical poetry with heart. Stay tuned and thank you for your support....

We had a great gig, got to see and perform along side some amazing artists at Coast 2 Coast's event at SXSW. We performed to a crowd of 500 people and some notable producer and industry insiders said the following; "the vocals sound good and catchy. Reminds me of Sublime but more modern. You definitely should go for licensing opportunities. If you have more universal sounding tracks like this, you have a lot of options-- they are universally appealing" and "actually your music sounds like it could be commercial, so that's where the big money is." Looking forward to more events!
