Area Music Students to Release CD, Pullin’ Strings 

(Kenn Fox & the Sensational String Stretchers)
Student participants: Jack Murphy, Lauren Stanwyck, Joe Tzougros, Andrew Edstrom, Casey Scudder, John Slattery, Pete Neils, Tom Angsten, Liz Ethington, and Charlie Smart

In the summer of 2006, central Wisconsin recording artist and teacher Kenn Fox found himself surrounded by a wealth of great talent, all of which happened to be longtime students. Fox began formulating original compositions with each of these students and rehearsing the material in weekly lessons at the Waukesha County Conservatory of Music in Hartland,

With ten students in tow ranging in age from 12 to 45, Fox and another longtime student and business partner Tim Angsten (Green Flash Society, Hello Hello) headed for the recording studio. All of the ten original compositions on this collection were co-written, arranged and recorded by Fox and each of these students. With the exception of one, none of the participating ten students had ever had any recording experience before.

All of the fundamental tracks in this collection were recorded live. Other area professional musicians, bassist Dave Finley (Mare Edstrom Band) and banjo player Jon Peik (Nob Hill Boys) also lent a hand. The result, Pullin’ Strings, to be released Nov. 1st by Spiritone, features ten original instrumental compositions ranging in style from blues to rock, gypsy swing, jazz, and contemporary fingerstyle. This collection showcases these ten guitarists and presents the listener with a fun-filled journey of guitar sounds. The recording also features Tim Angsten on drums and his brother Tom Angsten on bass. The project was engineered by Tim Angsten and mixed by another Wisconsin native, recording engineer, Vinny Millevolte. The extraordinary cover art was designed by renowned German graphic artist, Dominik Jacky.

Pullin’ Strings is available at Hartland Music Center, the Exclusive Company in Brookfield WI, B-Side records in Madison WI, Fox Music Company in Watertown WI, CDBaby.com, and here from the Spiritone web site.
