AIN’T OVER ROSE, a Contemporary Pop/AC rock band, is releasing their self-titled debut CD very soon. Nine songs are already available. The band consists of singer/songwriter F.X. Stagliano from Philadelphia and drummer/percussionist Reynold “Butch” Carlson from Los Angeles.  Stagliano has been playing guitar/ keyboard and writing songs since the age of 15. His songs have been on U.S. radio in over 26 states. Carlson began playing drums at age 12 and has performed on over a dozen internationally released CDs.

The prodigious keyboardist/singer/songwriter, Billy Preston’s last studio recording was on Stagliano’s first CD, UP IN HERE, recorded nine years ago. John Roths, the Music Director at Texas radio station KEOS 89.1 called it, “the most intelligent CD he had heard in over a decade”.  Preston worked with Staggs and his band Treehouse, indicating that he wanted to give something back to the industry that had been so good to him. He was in the process of arranging for the band to be the opening act for Eric Clapton’s 2006 U.S. tour. However, Preston’s untimely death claimed one of the world’s greatest musicians and sent Stagliano back to his hometown of Philadelphia, despondent over the loss of his friend and far removed from the exposure and success that Treehouse might have enjoyed.

The new CD, AIN’T OVER ROSE, represents a sort of comeback for Stagliano and Carlson, and they look forward to touring soon. F.X. is currently playing solo in venues on the East coast, and Carlson continues his studio musician gigs in Los Angeles. The new CD was produced, engineered and mastered by Richard Mouser at The Mouse House in Los Angeles. Throughout his noteworthy career, he has worked with Weezer, Oleander, Nine Inch Nails and Tweaker. He also worked on the American Pie 2 Original soundtrack. His  influence and inspiration is witnessed throughout the CD, and he will be playing with the band at live performances. Two studio musicians from Hollywood, David Abercrombie (six string electric fretless bass guitar) and Alex Budman (tenor sax) also put their unique stamp on the project.

Discover this lyrically driven, multi-genre and artful band as they now plan to come out of the shadows, and stay tuned for upcoming recordings of new material which they embrace with great anticipation and excitement!
