With great excitement we, vocalist Petra van Nuis and pianist/vocalist Bradley Williams, announce the release of our brand-spanking-new CD, Revenge of the Kissing Bug
, This recording features our duo work with piano alongside quartet numbers accompanied by two of Chicago's Finest, bassist Daniel DeLorenzo and drummer Michael Schlick. We're particularly pleased to be able to introduce Revenge of the Kissing Bug
to you via its companion website, revengeofthekissingbug.com, explaining the dark story of the Kissing Bug and allowing you to hear samples of all 17 tracks, including songs by Billy Strayhorn, Frank Loesser, Leo Robin, Ned Washington, and Cy Coleman, among others.
And - to top it all off: revengeofthekissingbug.com provides links to a new, independent, not-for-profit online bulletin board, the Kissing Bug Forum, for those of you with artistic spirits (that would be all of you, we believe.) We hope you'll click through, and hope even more you'll consider registering and contributing posts.
We're just getting ready to go on a week-long Kissing Bug tour with the quartet in the lovely state of Michigan, but when we return, our first order of business will be arranging for a CD-release event in the Chicago area in the late summer/early fall. You'll be notified. In the meantime - check out revengeofthekissingbug.com
