THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NO. 9
JUNE 18, 2021
– Many of you took the “VOICE OF TREASON” album journey earlier this year and purchased very early advance copies of our fourth album (our first on VINYL!) The album still has a while yet before its general release… BUT…..we have decided, for the sake of keeping ourselves afloat, to run another exclusive “album journey” campaign later this summer! We wanted all of you original “journey goers” to know ahead of time in case you start seeing posts for it in the coming weeks.
– Piggybacking on that bit of news, we still plan on going with a LIVE album/DVD/BluRay thing later this year, closer to Christmas…. and then, eventually, we plan on dropping our fifth album next year. Busy days!
– We will start promoting our Facebook Live event next week. We have not yet set the exact date, but it will be definitely be the first week in July. (And if you can’t catch it live, we will post it to the page).
– Bobby, a music teacher in New York City, just received the highest possible ratings in his evaluation as an educator. As I (Andy) say often (without financial goading), “The man simply rocks!”
Your Input: In our own writes…
We not only love to make music, but we love writing little articles about things, particularly related to music (as you can see from previous newsletters).
Is there anything you’d like us to write about specifically? We do take literary requests! LOL.
Your Input: “Cover” Up!
We have broached this topic on our Facebook page, but we’d like to revisit it.
We don’t really do cover versions of songs. Our three albums (the fourth completed and yet to be released) are all original “Roman-Steel” compositions.
However, we do have a 5-song Beatles’ cover CD called “For Mersey’s Sake,” and at some point, we’d like to finish up a Rush cover EP we’ve been working on… slowly..
So, we ask… if you could have ELM TREASON cover any tune(s) and make a proper studio recordings, what should we do?
Would love your feedback! Thanks.
One of those “Wow. I wonder what THOSE guys were doing together” pictures… One for the ages.
Miles Davis and John Lennon.
Dig it, brothers and sisters.
Yesterday was the 54th anniversary of the start of the famed MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL. Among the star-studded lineup were THE WHO. Check out Pete Townshend eviscerating his guitar (which eventually prompted Jimi Hendrix to “up” the game and sacrifice his).
Two of Us
Back in the day, when we were on Twitter, we made quite a few friends and fans by taking requests.
Here is a video, recently unearthed from one of our digital graveyards, of us doing the Beatles’ song “Two of Us.”
It was a special dedication. 🙂
Can’t believe we FOUND this! (From 2014)

Pet Rocks??? Seriously? What THE HELL were we thinking??
Andy’s turn to get behind the pen.
One thing we get asked all the time… “How did you guys meet?” or “How did Elm Treason get started?“
Setting the record straight, here it is… the “official” tale. Enjoy!
