Randy Quaid To Release Digital 45


Thursday April 14, 2011 (Vancouver, BC) - Award winning indie label Maximum Music Group is proud to announce an exciting new partnership with Randy Quaid and Evi Quaid that will focus on the recording, distribution and marketing of new songs written and performed by Randy Quaid.

Produced by The Quaid's and John Shewfelt, the first two singles will be released on a self-titled digital 45 available for download on Tuesday, May 3, 2011 on iTunes and wherever you buy your music online.

Mixed and mastered by award winning heavyweight engineer, Mike Rogerson (Sheryl Crowe, Shelby Lynne & Green Day) the new 45 features the infamous "Star Whackers", a hard-hitting rock-rebel styled number and the beautiful Americana-Johnny Cash influenced lovers-lament "Will We Be Together Then", an open and honest love song written by Evi and Randy while traveling through troubling times.

Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Randy Quaid may be best known as an acclaimed and respected actor but music has always had a place in Randy's life. He began performing as a singer-songwriter before his acting career took off, he and wife, creative partner Evi started playing and writing music together as a way to express their love and frustration. Finding relief in telling the truth through song, Randy and Evi kept putting pen to paper, often writing down simple ideas and verses that would later become finished compositions.

Most recently Randy appeared live on stage at the legendary Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, where he realized how good playing music and being on stage felt, and thus together entered the studio to record a series of songs that will eventually become his first full length album, to be released worldwide later this year by Maximum Music/EMI.

Randy's band is Randy Quaid on lead vocals, John Shewfelt (Drums), Mark Hopkinson (Guitar), Bruce Green (Guitar) & Rich Johnson (Bass)
