Retro Rocker project revived.

Hamburg -

The duo Penn Jones and Tully McCully have revived a bunch of great songs written a few years ago and Tully has completed the first single that will be part of an album later this year. The material is very danceable retro pop rock.

Penn who originally hails from London (UK) is now a Nashville based singer, songwriter and sound engineer.

Tully is a producer and bass player for the former chart topping group McCully Workshop.

The two spent time in Tully's Cape Town studio recording the basics, including Penn's very punchy vocal tracks.

For a number of reasons the whole project went on ice for a while. Tully had originally recorded the tracks on 2 inch analog tape in his previous studio and needed to find a way to transfer the tracks to his all digital system set up in his home studio.

Hamburg (Germany) based rock label, Tin Can Discs heard the rough tracks and offered a license to release the productions, so Tully set to work again.  What he has so far delivered are some very well produced and performed songs.

The first release is a high energy track called, What it takes to be, a co-write by the two artists featuring Penn on vocals. The track is live on all the main digital portals now.

Beatles remake well done.


The first new issue on the label to take on in 2017 is the single production by the US act known as RE-IMAGINE Nation.
