Forgotten Works' latest release for Lonely Room Music presents a whole new direction for the group, as the format now includes a rhythm section, and a wiley, alt-grunge-meets-storyteller folk sound. The songwriting of founding members Dave Norem and Dan Reyhle has evolved itself around the musical company of old friends, 2 in particular, each a part of this band's deep roots in creating rock music. Mark Tarlton, Bay area drummer/production extraordinaire, (and past band member of Dave's) slams the kit for a majority of the album, while Eugene bass player Bret Wiedner (a life-long collaborator of Dan's) adds a third thread to the string-work of Norem and Reyhle while thumping a foundation behind dual guitar/vocal delivery. Songs like 'What Is Real' and 'Anchors' soar with grungy sonics and heavy tones while maintaining the acoustic, storyteller vibe that has always been Forgotten Works' specialty. 'Any Old Day' is available in NW Independent record stores, iTunes, CDBaby.com/all/forgottenworks, Amazon.com, and other major distributors April 15, 2011!
