The Great Affairs ~ Rock Recording Artists Special Guest On 10/5/2023
With fresh blood in their ranks, The Great Affairs set out to prove they still have a few tricks up the sleeve, on their latest offering - ‘Sleepwalker’, due out Friday, October 20, 2023.
From the Americana-leaning tendencies of early efforts, to the full-blown Rock swagger of their recent works, The Great Affairs have never been afraid to shake things up a bit, letting the songs lead the way rather than a concern for adhering to any specific genre. This is readily apparent on their latest release ‘Sleepwalker’, a record where they slide right out of a piano-driven, ELO-esque Pop ballad, and into a greasy, slithering, Aerosmith-inspired riff without batting an eye.
According to Co-Lead Vocalist Denny Smith - “Kenny brings the Bad Company & the Bon Scott, I bring the Cheap Trick & the Rick Springfield, and in the middle we meet.” It’s at this halfway point, at this elemental summit, where the magic starts to happen. Capturing this alchemy once again is longtime Co-Producer Michael Saint-Leon, a two-time Grammy Winner who has been tracking The Great Affairs at his Nashville, TN studio The Switchyard for over a decade.
The followup to 2020’s ‘Everybody Moves, Nobody Gets Hurt’, ’Sleepwalker’ features 10 tracks that showcase both a love of loud guitars & big drums, and an obvious knack for crafting hooks that are hard to shake.
