ATN. We are enjoying a re-release this month with "Morning light." Our digital distribution has trippled our fan base. I have personally heard my own songs back on peoples cell phones thanks to the down loading by fans here in the bay area.!!! Special Thanks to Derek for keeping us out there in the public eye. Steven is working on a rap/shred album with his new friends at his living complex. It will prove to be quite unusual. Randell Now has a day job after being out of work for many years running. More new songs can be produced. Keep checking our site for more coming details...... Recently Randell got a chance to meet Joe Satriani at a local music store-concord's spitzers music- where he got a photo with him and Randell's guitar! Many fellow T2Jers- fans of Joe's on his web site- asked for a copy. This is the guitar featured on our web site's home page. More info upcoming. Now as of 7-6-06 Randell has suffered thru Eye surgery to his right eye. It was a success! Now ATN can concentrate on new material, as long as Gas prices premit! Recently a fellow Talk to Joe fan got a free Ibanez guitar from Randell. Kayla, was upset that her brother was getting all the attention. Randell quickly countered by sending her a custom ibanez guitar in the mail. A ATN fan as well as a Joe Stariani devotee, she's making great progress on her new found talent. Digital sales to phones have increased on all our albums, but "One Step" remains the top seller. Thanks Derek Severs! Right now the latest up-date for ATN has Steven living thru some tought times at his home. Randell has had surgery on his feet ,Twice!, and music has had to take the backburner for a few short months. new/old recordings have been in the power duo's sights. We have been carefully editing together key guitar shred high energy tunes from the past and new songs from this new year for a suprize "Best of" album coming later this year. Look for it right here on our many links off of our albums. There is one song that is a re-mix with Randell adding a dual leed to Red Crush. "Red Crush 2" has a two minute lead at the end added by Randell with his signature "Pick Slide" styling. Steven has had some great recordings we have been saving just for this album that will keep the fans glued to his new inovative style. 2007 promises to be a hot rock guitar time. ATN News from ATN: As of April 2007 Steven's Mom, Helen, passed away this month! Helen was also a major producer behind the band. She will be missed. ATN will carry on. We have new music we have submitted to the "Talk to Joe" project for the upcoming new album "T2J3!" Look for a song called "Passions of Paradice" to-hopfully- appear on this new project. Steven and Randell recently met up with producer "Buzzy Linhart" where they all pledged to write/perform/record a song together.
