Navigating through Covid, and racial socio-political happenings in everyday life, The Livesays continue to release music that is insightful, poignant, and impactful.
Pembroke Pines, Florida– September 1st, 2021- Up-and-coming band The Livesays, featuring Clarence Clemons’ guitarist and vocalist Billy Livesay, are set to release their latest masterpiece in the form of their new album ‘Not What I Bargained For’. Billy Livesay, best known for his work with E-Street Band legend Clarence Clemons, is all set to make a dramatic return in the new album, which releases on September 1st, 2021, and promises to be a masterful hybrid of melody, passion, and rhythm.
The Livesays were forced to take a break from creating their 4th CD in 2018 upon the sudden and unfortunate death of their beloved drummer and bandmate Eddie Zyne. The search for a new drummer started in 2019, and it ended with the addition of Howard Goldberg while reconnecting with the pianist who left the band in 2014 – Timothy Murphy.
After the band reformed and regrouped, Covid hit in 2020, forcing the entire world into lockdown. And so, secluded in his Lauderdale-area home, critically acclaimed singer and songwriter Billy Livesay began to write, creating a whole new set of songs comprising two entirely new albums, the latest being ‘Not What I Bargained For’.
Most of the songs in the latest album are reflective of whatever is happening around the world in recent times, specifically focusing on the socio-political disparities that exist in our society. With 12 new songs about life in 2021, The Livesays are ambitiously releasing their 5th CD (and second in less than a year) as a cathartic, creative release.
