Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) November 1, 2007
Two songs from the band Blue News, "Next Time" and "Love So Strong", are being heard on national television on the 2007 PBS Roadtrip Nation series. Blue News is a powerful duo whose innovative songwriting style and unique sound has listeners coming back for more. This ground-breaking music is turning heads wherever ears are listening. The band's distinctly original sound is a fusion of Alternative Rock and Blues. In reviews, their sound has been compared to such musicians as Eric Clapton, The Black Keys and Credence Clearwater Revival.
The band's music will also be included on the soundtrack CD for the 2007 Roadtrip Nation film series as well as in their promotional videos on the official series website. The series soundtrack and sampler DVD will be distributed to over 40 college campuses across the United States as well as in film screening kits for student representatives at over 100 college campuses. This opportunity for exposure, combined with the band's recent radio campaign with Vigilant Promotions has prompted Blue News to begin planning a Spring/Fall college campus tour. To support the tour, Blue News plans to make in-studio appearances at supporting radio stations and also in-store appearances at retail record stores.
Blue News has also signed with booking agency Volare Star Entertainment to help with future touring and publicity ventures. Also look forward to new music from Blue News as they are working on the release of their next album, which is due to be released in early 2008.
The band formed in late 2005 and released their debut album with Statue Records Hollywood in January 2006 and toured to promote the release in several cities throughout 2006. In 2007, the band self-released a follow-up EP. Both CDs can be ordered online and tracks from both albums are available for download on iTunes & through the band's official website.
Their latest album, The Signs, weaves frontman Brent Orndorff's well developed guitar style, smooth signature vocals, and authentically meaningful lyrics with drummer Kraig Kerins' perfect rhythm section groove to create an essential addition to any music lovers collection. With the upcoming exposure on national television on the PBS series Roadtrip Nation, and a product endorsement with Knucklehead Strings, Blue News can count on loads of future success.
