Michael Roe Releases “Guadalupe” and The 77s Unplugged Tour

Lo-Fidelity Records is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Michael Roe’s new solo album, “Guadalupe”….

“The number 13 is a lucky number for some. For others, it may be ominous or foreboding. As I entered the year 2013, I realized that it had been 13 years since the passing of my beloved friend Gene Eugene. I suddenly waxed nostalgic as I recalled rumors of Gene’s unfinished Adam Again album to be titled “Guadalupe” and how it inspired me to write a song with that same name. The lyric is filled with remembrance and longing for my grandfather and all the places we went fishing together, but somehow the song was about Gene as well. Upon rehearing, it reminded me of so much unfinished business we have with others, ourselves and our life’s work — things we should or could have done but never got around to. This certainly applies to many songs I’ve recorded over the years that I felt I could have represented better or with a different approach. At this point in my life, that usually means simpler, with less clutter and ornamentation.

Recently, I asked a bunch of my Facebook fans to share with me what songs of mine had meant something important to them. The response was overwhelming, as were the stories about why certain tunes had an impact. This inspired me to revisit some of them in a quieter, simpler way. We can’t change the past, but if we try, we can sometimes change the way we feel about it. Some things never get done, but sometimes we can do for others the things they left undone. “Guadalupe” is my attempt at doing just that for myself, my grandfather, Gene Eugene and all of you…” ~~ Michael Roe

The album will be available on tour starting Friday, April 5th, 2013, and online, Tuesday, April 9th, 2013. Complete info on track-listing and deluxe packages for the “Guadalupe” album will be made available soon through Lo-Fidelity Records.

In support of this new release, Michael Roe and David Leonhardt are pleased to again tour as 77s Unplugged where they will perform songs from “Guadalupe” and the extensive 77s catalog.
