Media Release: 1st April, 2021
New Label Launched TASMAN RECORDS
We are proud to announce our newly established boutique label based in the South Island of New Zealand. Bringing beautiful music to both New Zealand and Australia. We will be carrying both local and imported titles to discerning music fans and we are excited to be announcing our first release.
Tasman Records has licensed from Blue Élan Records in Los Angeles an extraordinarily beautiful CD bringing a unique pressing of this title to New Zealand & Australian music lovers.
Keeping the Light on - The Best of Gerry Beckley.
Everyone of course has loved Gerry's music for generations as co-founder of the group ‘America’. Gerry has brought to the world timeless hit songs like 'Sister Golden Hair' and 'I Need You', to name but a few.
Rare is the musician who can be part of an iconic band and still manage to carve out a path of their own that's as, if not more, creatively rich and accomplished as that which made him famous.
Managing Director of Tasman Records Aly Cook says… “We are proud to be launching our label and bringing to Australian and New Zealand audiences one of the most prolific songwriters of our generation. Bringing to the fans, new work from legacy artists is something I have always wanted to be part of and although we are not limiting the label to this activity solely, it is great to be starting with someone as amazing as Gerry Beckley, who has so much to offer in his collection of songs that he has written and released outside of being in the band ‘America’. Songwriters like Gerry are masters of their craft and have so much to offer fans with their newer work, their life experiences, their maturity, their knowledge as a songwriter and artist and so much more. “
"We have been listening to this beautiful 20 track collection and loving every minute of these stunningly crafted songs and we now look forward to sharing them with Australian and New Zealand audiences".
Tasman Records distribution is via Metropolitan Groove Merchants and Southbound in New Zealand.
Thanks to our friends at JB Hi-Fi we have the very first pre-sale opportunity out already for Australian & New Zealand audiences.
Pre-order your copy of this beautiful 20 track unique Australian & New Zealand pressing of this album with a lovely accompanying 16 page booklet featuring photos from Gerry’s travels.
For those of you who love a CD in your hands with all its info, you will love this CD for your collection or as a great present for Mother’s Day.
Release date is 30th of April.
