Secondhand Serenade

Before the explosion of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, the music industry had not yet seen a forward-thinking artist rise from the internet to find success in the mainstream. But all of that changed in the form of a lone man and his guitar. The year was 2007 when the #1 Myspace artist took the leap from the early days of social networking to the world of big box retail, releasing his first album commercially through a brand new record label. The artist was Secondhand Serenade, the label was Glassnote Records and the album was titled, Awake. Fast forward a full decade later and the team is getting back together. Not only is Secondhand Serenade (real name John Vesely) back on the Glassnote roster, but the album that started their relationship many moons ago is being brought back to life in the form of Awake: Remixed & Remastered, 10 Years & 10,000 Tears Later.

While it may have been the first album for both the artist and the newly birthed record label, the fruits of their efforts together would not take long to see the light of day. Secondhand Serenade quickly shot to the forefront of the emo-pop movement, selling out tours, appearing on late night television and hitting the top of the radio charts along the way. Armed with a multi-platinum single in “Fall For You”, a growing reputation as a world class live performer, and his trusty acoustic guitar, the California based musician became the face of a genre.

After a relocation to Nashville, Tennessee and a break from touring, Vesely is now re-emerging with this 10-year anniversary album coming out on February 10 th , 2017 and a full blown tour in support of its release. The disc is set to include all 12 songs which originally appeared on the first retail release of Awake, along with 2 brand new songs. The originals have also been updated with some additional production on top of being remixed and remastered.

“I really wanted to update these songs and give them a bit of a fuller sound without changing the emotion and vibe. My fans have always gravitated towards these songs and this style so it was important to enhance them without changing the way they make my listeners feel” says Vesely. He continued, “Even the two additional songs I added still capture the vibe of the original album. I just can’t wait for my fans to hear how it all came out.”

Just three days after the album’s release, Secondhand Serenade will embark on his first headlining tour in years starting in Charlotte on February 13 th . He’ll playing the Awake album from front to back and may even throw in a few fan favorites along the way. Also coming along for the trek are Red Jumpsuit Apparatus front man Ronnie Winter as well as Hawthorne Heights, all playing acoustic on what’s sure to be the throwback emo-pop tour of the year.

“The fact that I get to not only put out another album with the first label that ever took a chance on me, but also get to hit the road and see my fans alongside old friends of mine that I’ve toured with before… I just couldn’t ask for a better way to start 2017. It’s a reunion in so many exciting ways,” says the singer/songwriter.

ABOUT MARTIN RAY WINERY
The name Martin Ray resonates deeply in the history of California Winemaking. Martin Ray was a pioneer, dedicated to crafting single varietal, region specific wine from 1943 through 1972 in Saratoga, in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Mentored by Paul Masson, he took a burgundian approach to his winemaking, and developed what is now one of the most historical properties in California, known as Mount Eden.
Nearly twenty years later, Courtney Benham stumbled upon 1500 cases of Martin Ray wine in a San Jose warehouse. Recognizing his good fortune, and his intent and drive to produce terroir driven wines, Ray’s historical significance and philosophy resonated with him. Courtney purchased the brand, and since 1990 has been committed to the production of artisanal wines worthy of the Martin Ray name.
In 2003, Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery made its home in the Russian River Valley, on the edge of Green Valley at one of the oldest continually working wineries in California. Today, Courtney and his winemaking team devote themselves to Ray’s ideology of making “wines of place”. By sourcing from hillside vineyards, they are relentless at telling the story of each exceptional appellation and vineyard. The depth of the portfolio offers those seeking a unique experience the chance to explore some of the most revered appellations in California. From our 12 acre Estate, to the mountain regions of Santa Cruz and Napa, to the northern reaches of Dry Creek Valley and Sonoma Coast, there is an abundance of phenomenal growing regions, great farming, and meticulous detail to vintages.

ONE OF THE GREATEST SYNTH ELECTRO-POP BANDS OF ALL TIME


This Los Angeles-based synth pop group, founded by bassist John Crawford, singer Terri Nunn, and keyboard player David Diamond, made its first national impression with the provocative single “Sex (I’m A…)” from the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. The group was filled out by guitarist Rick Olsen, keyboard player Matt Reid, and drummer Rob Brill. Berlin’s first full-length LP was the gold Love Life in 1984. In 1985, the group was pared down to a trio of Crawford, Nunn, and Brill. Berlin topped the charts in 1986 with the single “Take My Breath Away,” the love theme from the Tom Cruise movie Top Gun.
Nunn left for a solo career in 1987, and Crawford and Brill teamed up in the Big F. In 1999, the band reunited to record some new studio material and also performed a concert, which, along with the new songs, was released as 2000’s Berlin Live: Sacred and Profane. This was followed a year later by a flurry of recording sessions that included co-writing tracks with Billy Corgan, among others. The end result, Voyeur, was their first full-length studio release in over 15 years.
