Newfoundland singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and
producer Jim Fidler is set to release his new rock concept
album on December 8. I will post a review of the album
and details on the virtual launch a little closer to the date.

But for now, the first single off the album, Peace of Mind,
has just been released. It is a tapestry of sound, including
some stellar sax work from guest Rory Hoffman, and
with thought-provoking lyrics. It can be streamed for
free at https://jimfidler.com/new-single/ but if you like
it I recommend you buy it directly from the bottom of
that website for CAN$0.99 (US$0.72, 0.67 Euro, 0.58 pound)
to support the artist.

Since it is a rock concept album, it is a departure from
his earlier reggae, celtic folk, and world music
repertoire, but I have posted to these groups since
some of his fans of such past material may be
interested in what he is up to these days. Much of
that early material is also available at https://www.jimfidler.com/ .

The virtual launch will be from 7--8:30 p.m. EST December 8,
or 8:30--10 p.m. Dec. 8 Newfoundland time, which is
midnight--1:30 a.m. Dec. 9 in UTC/GMT.

To get a ticket to the virtual launch visit https://jimfidler.com/ .
Tickets are CAN$30 (US$21.86, 19.95 euro, 17.45 pound)
and include access to the live stream concert, plus a signed CD
including tax and delivery (and the CD includes a lyric
booklet with some amazing graphics by Lillian Fidler).

The launch will include sets from Jim Fidler and
guests Lindsay Ferguson, Rory Hoffman, and Terry Kelly.

Jim Fidler is a musician and producer from Newfoundland, who has had a
remarkable musical journey. Jim’s career includes successful ventures like
pioneering Newfoundland’s first reggae group, Pressure Drop, and releasing
acclaimed albums like “Gypsy.” He became the first solo Newfoundland
artist to sign a European record deal. Jim’s versatility shines through
albums like “Friendly Fire” and “Midnight Rover,” blending diverse
musical influences. He also aimed to promote world peace through
cross-cultural collaborations on “Musaik, In This World”. His latest
album, “RPM, Volume II, Ten Years Later,” is set to be released on
December 8th 2023, continuing to showcase his innovative musical spirit.

Lindsay Ferguson will be joining us from her home in Switzerland. She is a
critically acclaimed Canadian singer and song writer, and an international
touring artist who’s music is regularly featured on various Canadian and
European Radio stations. Influenced as a young woman by the likes of Joni
Mitchell, Cyndi Lauper and Tracy Chapman and later in life; José Gonazalez,
Kate Bush and Gord Downie, she has come into her own style of music with a
mix of folk meets pops meets country. Compared to Adele, Lucinda Williams and
Jason Mraz, she has a unique sound which resonates deeply, creating a
profound connectedness to the listener.

Rory Hoffman is a Nashville based multi-instrumentalist. Raised on a small
ranch in North Dakota, Rory grew up recording and touring with the family
Gospel band. He started teaching himself to play guitar and piano at age 3.
By age 5 he was the drummer in the family band. He currently plays over a
dozen stringed, keyboard and wind instruments. Rory has played sax on many of
Jim's recordings including the new single 'Peace of Mind’

Terry Kelly’s enthusiasm for life and sheer determination have gained him
international recognition as an accomplished athlete; an award-winning
singer, songwriter, and entertainer; a professional speaker; and a lover of
life. As a musician this Newfoundland native has released seven full-length
recordings, resulting in seven East Coast Music Awards and nominations for
four Canadian Country Music Awards and a JUNO. Terry has shared the stage
with Symphony Orchestras, and has performed his original music in Europe,
Australia, New Zealand, and for the troops in Afghanistan. He is most
recognized for his inspirational song, “A Pittance of Time”.

I spoke with Jim and Lillian Fidler briefly tonight on Zello
and they said the virtual launch is shaping up to be a
very special event. If you are planning on attending it,
I suggest that you get your tickets as soon as possible,
preferably by December 6, to give them time to send
out the link for the livestream. However tickets won’t
go up in price after December 6.

I was wrong. Tickets will go up to CAN$40 as of Friday morning, to
encourage people to get them before then, so that Lillian Fidler won’t
have too much last minute work.

But if you have little time, the first five minutes are an album
tour, and if you like it you could buy a digital or physical CD
from https://jimfidler.com/store .
