Resurrection After-party Album Cover.jpgResurrection After-Party is the latest album from Stephanie Wolfe.  It is being released on her Chipped Polish Records label tomorrow, February 14th, Valentines Day. 

This album is heavy into electronica.  My favorite song is Excited although Something Wicked is very popular too.

Chipped Polish Records is committed to female artists in the genres of pop, electronica, rock, and experimental music.

Eddies Attic, where Sugarland, the Indigo Girls, and many others launched their careers, has been sold to Alex Cooley and Dave Mattingly.  Alex is a concert promoter and has worked with acts like The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, Aerosmith, etc... The list goes on and on.  Let's hope that they continue the tradition of open mics and nurturing new talent that Eddie's Attic is known for.

Alex has also promoted several music festivals including the 2nd Annual Atlanta Pop Festival held the year after Woodstock and attracted the largest gathering of people in Georgia until the 1996 Olympics.

Good luck to both of you.
