OTHER TREASON TIDBITS

– Work on our next album “WITHOUT A TRIBE” continues

– Bobby is DEFINITELY enjoying his brief, yet much needed, summer separation from the classroom. The Summer of Bobby is underway!

– The new “PLAY LOUD/LISTEN LOUDER” t-shirts are ever-so-closer to becoming a reality. We’ve been conducting a poll in the “Uptown Q” Facebook Group between three possible designs (We conducted the same poll here in the Newsletter a couple weeks back), and there is a CLEAR winner. VERY clear. But there have also been some KILLER suggestions from a few Treasonites on how to make the winning design ever better. Awesome feedback! We’ll be working on that this week. Stay tuned.

Your Input: ANYTHING GOES!

We probably do this once every few months. It’s always fun!

This week’s “YOUR INPUT” is wide open! 

Ask us anything. 

Comment on anything. 

Want to know what our favorite foods are? Want to promote a song you’ve written and recorded? Want to show off your new guitar? Or Car?  Need to vent about something without fear of recrimination? Want to post a selfie? Feel the need to send Elm Treason a ton of love? (Wait, did we just THINK that last one or did we actually write it?)

It’s all yours!

Share a big life event! Let’s hear some good news! Tell us what you are wearing! Give someone a shoutout! Pay tribute to someone who means the world to you.

Whatever… it’s all yours, people!

Love the baked potatoes pic. Lol
I’ve been indisposed for a couple of weeks. Been working like a dog, you know….running my tail off for a biscuit and a pat on the head. Love you guys. Keep on rocking!

Bill Boys

Loved the baked potatoes pic too. I like to tell people that’s Lady GaGa

Shelley Briley

This is my God daughter Alex and my dear friend Richard, a wonderful juggler and performer. They’re at Blissfest music festival. 🙂

Listening to Drivin’ and Cryin’ right now. Just played Gary Moore live disc. And up next….Burnt Marshmallows and Tiny Bikinis, a power pop sampler. Variety is the spice of life!

Bill Boys

Your mama was wrong. You’re not goin’ straight to Hell.

Alvin Schultz

Pearls before Swine, almost as good as Get Fuzzy!

Go see Skunk Anansie and let them blow you away. Saw them a month ago and WOW! What a tight rock & punk band and Skin is a force of nature. Phenomenal voice and stage presence and the mosh pit was pumping. All great musicians and performers. Skin lives in NYC too!! 👍🎸🎶🎙🤘

I could go on for pages. Please answer only what you feel like answering. Knowing that Bobby has so much musical education behind him, I’m fascinated that he’s such a big Rush fan. What is it that makes him like Rush so much? Andy seems to have the Beatles as his main frame musical mother board. Do you like people who seem influenced by them like Badfinger, Elvis Costello, Del Amitri certain Tom Petty? Anybody else in that vein? Andy, mainly, but would be interested in Bobby’s response as well…. anybody’s lyrics really get to you? Paul Simon, John Prine, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, Randy Newman, Fagan and Becker, Neil Peart, Jackson Browne, Cole Porter, Bernie Taupin, Leonard Cohen…Not asking for you to address each one, just examples and I guess the names that come to me when I think great lyricists. I assume you both wrote prior to meeting each other. I know Andy successfully got poems published, seems like I remember it being mentioned that Bob writes classically as the beginning of Eye to Eye would suggest. Have you ever collaborated with anyone else? Either part of the duo: Would you say your work is more informed by more by John or Paul, or is it right down the middle? Wouldn’t consider the middle a cop out. That’s it. Feel free to pick and choose what you want to answer.

Bill Boys

Small part two: I missed listening to 90s music much. But have gone back and found I love a lot of those songs. Creep by Radiohead is a recent song that I’ve picked up as a favorite. What 90s and later artists do you like. I might wanna check some of those out as a guide to my 90s rock journey.

Bill Boys

Curious. I like walking rail road tracks. It’s nature that few get to see because nobody rides those tracks. At least where I live. What is the area that you shot that track photo?

Bill Boys

I meant to ask if you have any songs you’re particularly proud of that you wrote before Elm Treason, that never turned into Elm Treason songs?

Bill Boys

thanks. great answer
