Last layer of the new Abandon Jalopy

March 19th, 2011 by Vincent

Brad Smith is currently working on his new Abandon Jalopy album called ‘Death & Joy’. He had Rogers Stevens to play guitar on a song named “Summer don’t leave”, Lenny Castro to play the drums and also Chris Shinn to do some backing vocals, “It sounds killer, makes me mad that he sings that well… he just killed it” said Brad talking about Shinn.
A very special guest will also be part of the album: Nico Blue Hoon (Shannon Hoon’s daugther). “Nico sang on ‘Love has a way’ for my Abandon Jalopy record… she sounded great!!” Brad wrote on his facebook page.

    May I simply say what a relief to discover a person
    that truly knows what they’re talking about on the net. You actually realize how to bring an issue to
    light and make it important. A lot more people ought
    to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that you definitely have the gift.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
