Blue Island Records recording artist Jeff Sawyer is releasing his 7th CD this coming weekend. The new CD entitled “The Journey Home” is a CD comprised of solo piano with guitar, violin, bass and sax duets. It has been 10 years since Sawyer released an all original CD and Sawyer states “I’ve been working on the CD for the last three years and couldn’t be happier with what came out”. Sawyer has several special guests on the CD including nationally known guitarist Loren Barrigar, saxophonist Joe Zarr, harmonica player Rick Bush as well as nationally known jazz bassist Matt Vacanti. Also playing and co-writing a song with Sawyer on the new CD is country/bluegrass fiddle sensation, Kate Lee Gurnow. Gurnow is now living and working in Nashville and has played on the last three CMA awards as well as doing a duet with Jake Owen on this year’s CMA Christmas show. Sawyer says that “writing with Kate is always such an amazing experience and am thrilled to have her on my CD”. “We had a blast recording as well as cutting a new video for the project”.
The official release date for the CD is December 7th, 2013 and Sawyer has two professionally produced videos to accompany the CD that can be seen on his website or going to YouTube to view. Sawyer will also be giving a free concert this Sunday, December 8th at the Wolcott Presbyterian Church from 3-5pm and is open to the public.
