The Thunderhawks "One & Done"
The final incarnation of the Thunderhawks first and only album of songs will be released on May 28 on all digital formats. Titled "One & Done", it contains the nine songs written by the band. The songs have been streamlined, and they're finally in the form that producer Tony Sarno had envisioned. Although there are still a few recorded songs still unreleased, this will be the only album by the hard rock band, thus the title "One & Done". It will be available on ITunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, and dozens of other download and streaming services.
"Before the Soundcheck" May 5th
All new radio show Sunday morning in Nashville and the world! I feature the great session musician Clayton Ivey. Clayton was a member of the famous Muscle Shoals rhythm section known as “The Swampers”. My show is called “Before The Soundcheck”. I'm interviewing fellow artists, musicians, producers, engineers, songwriters, crew, music biz execs, crew, music teachers, anyone involved in making the music that we all love. The show airs Sunday mornings on Hippie Radio 94.5 in Nashville at 6am CST (7am EST, 10pm Sydney Australia time, and 1pm in Europe), online at https://www.hippieradio945.com, IHeart radio, and Tunein.

Concerts come to a halt!
With no one touring or playing local gigs these days, the only thing we have left is live streaming. We're working on doing some Skype guitar instruction/coaching, and a live Facebook/Instagram/Youtube studio webcam to see how I record sessions and demos, so stay tuned and stay safe. Say hey in our guestbook or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Keith touring with Lynyrd Skynyrd
Our friend and bass player, Keith Christopher, is now playing with Lynyrd Skynyrd. Keith was the founder of The Georgia Satellites and co-founded The Thunderhawks with Tony and played on all of Tony's recordings, starting with "It's a blues thing", and including "The Thunderhawks" and "Tony Sarno" (self-titled). Keith has toured Australia with Tony, and they've played gigs together all over the United States.
Keith Christopher is making Skynyrd's farewell tour a really special event, as he's bringing great new energy to that classic American rock band.
