On this coming Friday, September 9th, International Anthem Recording Co. is releasing an archival collection of home recordings by the late great Charles Stepney. Check this Wax Poetics post with episode 1 of a 4 part Documentary entitled Out of the Shadows.
This Friday, September 9th, we’ll be holding a listening party at 5PM and amping up to it all day we’ll be playing whatever we have in the store associated with Charles Stepney – whether as song writer, player, arranger etc. And then at 5PM playing the record and handing out some promotional posters –anyone who comes by can sign up to win a promo copy of the LP as well!
So come on by Friday to pick up a copy and hang and listen and celebrate Charles Stepney!
