Never forget your Dreams and Desires

A long time ago as a teenager I launched a band with my best friend of the time Mike Logan. The band was called Charley Browne. (It was modelled off Cheap Trick – a band who was heavy but pulled fun as well).

We had a top50 hit – toured and released two albums. About 5 years ago our album Power Palace started turning up in rare metal sites. It was on E-Bay and selling for up to 360 Euros. I’d moved on…but when I investigated the band I found fan sites in Cyprus, Argentina, Germany and Brazil. It was nuts… After 30 years we had a cult following.

In 2015, a documentary was done on the band for Rare Albums. You can see it at the bottom of this post:

CB_CD_front-2So I put the band together for the first time in 30 years and did a new album. It has taken us a couple of years to complete – given my schedule and others.. and there are some new members. Charley Browne 2016 is: Joe Tilli (Guitar), Mike Handcock (Guitar), Glen Donaghy (Vocals), Bruce Kerr (Bass), Patrick Kuhtze (Drums). The music was recorded by Dean Kerr and some piano and vocals added by Mal McCallum.

To Celebrate the new album called Resurrection – I want to inspire you with the title track – Resurrection – written by myself and Landi Jac. I’m playing the guitars on it and Glen Donaghy does an amazing job with the vocals.

This song is dedicated to YOU and your DREAMS. It’s time for any dream you had to be realised. It’s time for you to ‘become the person you were meant to be’

This is a Song of Hope. Please Share it on your Facebook or Twitter and inspire others with these lyrics.

Open Up Your Eyes And You Will See’
