STS ANNOUNCES NEW LABEL AFFILIATION

SAVING THE SCARECROW is very happy and proud to announce our new affiliation with HumanInhuman Records, a small indie label out of West Chester, PA. We recently came to an agreement regarding our first project together. We are developing a new four song EP which should be released later this year or early 2010. The release date will be decided by the label, once we are further along and into full production.

Recently a primary member of STS informed us that he was leaving the project. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors, as he really put a lot of time and effort into the band. He will be missed, but we are already rebuilding STS with a fuller, richer live band sound than we have had in the past.

HumanInhuman Records is an extremely busy label, so we feel fortunate to get into their stable of artists.

THE STORY OF SCARECROW (Updated)

"It's all in your head!" At least, that's what they kept telling me. Hi, I'm 'SCARECROW'. I am a singer/composer who specializes in very personal dynamic rock. I am also a no-holds-barred lyricist writing about what I think and what I feel and let the chips fall where they may. Mostly, my work is autobiographical.

About three years ago, I was diagnosed with moderate dementia. You read that right - a relatively young man with dementia. (It's basically the same as Alzheimer's, just caused by a different disease.) New miracle drugs have helped me dramatically, but unless a cure is found, my future is somewhat cloudy. However, I am a positive person, and I live every day looking for happiness, personal growth and passion.

For over a decade I couldn't play the piano or sing. I was way too confused to even play chords on the piano, much less compose songs. But something magical and completely unexpected happened in mid-Januaray of 2008. Out of nowhere my head became filled with music. I was so overwhelmed by all the different music in my head I didn't know what to do. So I sat down at the piano and songs just started pouring out of me.

The result: From the many songs I wrote in 2008, SAVING THE SCARECROW plans to release a new debut EP on our new label, HumanInhuman Records, sometime in the coming months.

Please ask us to be your friends. We hope you enjoy some of our fresh and powerful new music!
