I recently released a cover of a song that I've wanted to record for over 20 years. The song is called "Fire" and it was written and originally recorded by The Ohio Players". To me, it's the greatest funk song of all time.
I wanted treat the original recording with great respect to the arrangement and style, while still adding my vibe. I hope you'll check it out at one of the following three places:

As you most likely know, I don't send out a lot of mass emails or blog much. I don't want to be one of those people who emails you every time I go out for a cup of coffee. I prefer to wait for something special to come along. That's why I'm emailing you now.
My first piece of news is that I've finished another solo album recently called DEEP SOUTH. I'm really happy with the way this one turned out. It's an album of old cover tunes that I love and wanted to record.
Because you're on my Reverbnation list, I've come up with a way to give you a V.I.P. discount, not only on my new album, but on ALL merchandise on my website. Just go to my "Merch" page and click on your country:
Click on "V.I.P." and enter the following username and password (BOTH ARE CASE SENSITIVE SO ONLY USE LOWER CASE):
Username: deep Password: south
This is where you can get merch at a discount. It's my way of saying thanks. I'm also offering this to my friends on Myspace and Facebook:
As an additional thank you for your support, you can view the video I shot for a song called "Boll Weevil", which is the first single off of DEEP SOUTH. You can watch it here now:
The album and single aren't officially released until June 9, 2009, but I want you to have the first chance at checking them out.
I hope to see you on tour this year. Thanks so much for your support and I hope you like DEEP SOUTH!... Bill
I'm working on a new CD which should be out by May of 2009. I'll let you know when it's ready. Please join my my mailing list (which I don't share with ANYONE... I hate spam just as much as you do...) and I hope to see you on tour. Thanks so much for your support... Bill www.leverty.com
