Album Notes
New Winter E.P with 4 BRAND NEW Nines Songs and 1 song from the Nines classic pop album "Calling Distance Stations". Mixed and Mastered by John DS Adams (John Cage, Neil Young).

BACK STORY on the Nines: The first Nines LP, Wonderworld of Colourful, came out in Canada in 1998 on the Bare Naked Ladies’ Page label and was distributed through EMI. Later that year, Universal Music Canada released a piano-based four-song EP. This preliminary version of the band was sufficiently appealing to connect with the pop underground and top the Canadian college chart, but, as Eggers readily admits, the Nines were then still very much a work in progress. Still, this initial studio foray did offer a tantalizing glimpse of the young artist’s potential. The second Nines lineup cut Properties of Sound, released in North America in 2001 (Airmail Recordings picked up the album in Japan a year later). Additionally, several of Eggers’ songs wound up on network TV series, including Dawson's Creek, Party of Five and Joan of Arcadia (and most recently the theme song for Global Television's comedy sitcom "The Jane Show"). Since then, Eggers has totally committed himself to the making of "Calling Distance Stations",writing, refining and recording the material, and finding partners like Jason Falkner and Andy Partridge of XTC as well as others who could help him achieve his vision, which is predicated upon bringing the grand legacy of the 1960s into the present. Picking up where the Beatles left off is a big challenge, but it can be done, as XTC, Jellyfish and Spoon have proved. The Nines belong in that rarefied company.

Nines song "Doesn't Matter what I do" rated # 3 TOP SINGLES in MOJO MAGAZINE Playlist Picks- MOJO MAGAZINE

“ The contagious sunshiny harmonies of Toronto Band the Nines consistently evoke the giddy euphoria and retro 70’s haze of ELO, WINGS, and early Elton John.” (The Nines’ Calling Distance Stations is Inside Entertainment Editor’s Album Pick) – Inside Entertainment Magazine

“Few songwriters have the ability to delicately entwine melodies and chords that are immediately striking. Whether a ballad or a hard hitting rock up, Steve Eggers has been doing just that…” View Magazine

"Steve Eggers is a genius..." Amplifier Magazine

Each Christmas Eve, I do a rock’n’roll Christmas radio special on WPDH-FM in Poughkeepsie, NY. The station gives me six hours to play whatever the hell I want, and I like to take full advantage of their generosity/stupidity. This year’s will be the twenty-sixth(!) annual edition of the show, which features popular as well as rare and unusual rock’n’roll as well as folk and blues Christmas music. The show is heavily promoted each year and reaches a listenership of about 10,000 people.

I am writing to see if I might be able to get a promotional copy of the Christmas CD "Winter Snow and Icicles." It sounds right up the show's alley!

Because I am affiliated with WPDH for this Christmas special only, it would be best if the above title(s) could be sent directly to my home address so as to guarantee that the music will get into my hands.

Thank you in advance for anything you can do to assist my radio show.
