Telecommunicators single release

(There is an embedded player on this post, but you may have to scroll down a bit to see it.  For some reason it’s inserting a huge whitespace before itself)

I recently went to the Telecommunicators single release show for “Sorrows”.  A friend and karaoke regular of mine Matt is the lead singer and plays keyboard in the band.

As a karaoke DJ in Nashville, you can imagine how many people I’ve met in bands of one sort or another over the years.  Honestly, beyond politely listening to them talking about their plans and wishing them well I don’t usually really pay much attention.  I have had some regulars who were successful musicians in one capacity or another, and some who went on to become so, but it is certainly the exception to the rule.

The first time I went to one of their shows I really didn’t expect much.  Don’t get me wrong, I already knew Matt was a great singer and looked forward to seeing him and my other friends at the show, but my expectations were tempered by past experience.  It takes far more than just a good voice to make a good band.

I was VERY pleasantly surprised!  From the first song in their set I became an instant fan.  This was no cheesy cover band, they had their own songs with their own unique sound, a sound and style that very much appealed to my tastes.  I didn’t have to give sympathy applause and empty polite compliments, I honestly loved the music.

Sorrows was my favorite of their songs, so I was elated when I found out that it was going to be the first single release.  The release show was awesome.  The guys had great energy on stage, and the crowd responded well.  Everyone who was there got a free download code for “Sorrows”.  Regardless, I went and bought a copy just to show my support.

I know musical tastes vary wildly from person to person and not all of my friends will like what I do, but give them a listen.  If you like what you hear feel free to share the player below on your social networks of choice, and head over to this page and show some love by buying a copy of “Sorrows”.  It’s only 1$ and can be downloaded in mp3, ogg, FLAC, and various other formats, no DRM crap to prevent you from playing it however you like.

They are still working on the full album, and I can’t wait until it’s available.
