January 11, 2019

January 11 has been a special date in Jamie's life for the past 20 years.  It is a day for remembering, celebrating, and reflecting on things that matter deeply to him.  This is why January 11, 2019 was the date chosen to release the remixed and remastered 20th Anniversary Edition of Wide Open by Funnel.  The album was originally released on May 25, 1998 and has never been available digitally on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon, etc. until now.  Head over to CDBaby and grab it today.  We hope you will enjoy hearing this album at 20 years young as much as the guys enjoyed reliving it while putting it together.  We all hope that January 11 of every year brings you memories of Funnel!

Update from Jamie - "It's hard to believe that 2018 is in its waning days.  This has truly been a year of firsts, big changes, and wonderful opportunities for me.  Firstly, I started the podcast, The Drum Shuffle, back in February and the response and reaction has been beyond overwhelming.  Thank you all for supporting the show with open arms.  Had you told me at the beginning of the year that I would spend time with the likes of Peter Erskine, Rod Morgenstein, Doug Clifford, Johnny Rabb and the rest of our amazing guests, I would have thought you were delusional.  I have discovered that I have a knack (purely by accident) for getting amazing drummers to talk to me on the phone about their amazing careers in music.  I love the show and look forward to what it will become moving forward.


Secondly, No Fences has continued to stay busy with shows this year.  We have a few more to go in 2018, so keep an eye here for more frequent updates on when and where we'll be rocking.  I promise to do better...


Part 3 of my long-overdue update, I want to share that I'm continuing my lifelong work and collaboration with the awesome Phil Weisenberger in his terrific studio.  Phil has been my brother since age 13 and we've spent some time this year remixing Funnel's debut album, Wide Open, for a digital-only re-release later this year.  It has been a blast to relive those songs 20 years after they were first recorded and give them a 21st century refresh.  Over the years many of you have asked why that album isn't available on iTunes, Spotify, etc. and it's simply because they didn't exist when the album was released!  Stay tuned for more on that.


Lastly, a huge THANK YOU to each and everyone of you for stopping by here and keeping up with my musical shenanigans.  I'm humbled beyond belief that there are folks out there that have an interest in what I'm doing.  My passion has always been music and drumming and I will continue chasing them both until my final day here.  Each of you have my sincere gratitude!  Cheers, Jamie."
