26mar8:00 pmALAN FREW'S 80s REWIND

Event Details

Alan Frew has always had a passion for reinvention; a passion
that’s defined his 30-plus year career in the entertainment business,
including more recently his work as a public speaker and best-selling
author. Now that passion for reinvention has been applied unreservedly
to his new record, 80290 Rewind.

Released on Nov 6th 2015 on Black Box Recordings, 80290 Rewind finds
Frew taking on beloved 80’s tracks – a set of songs from the decade
during which his Juno Award-winning, Grammy-nominated band, Glass Tiger,
became one of the most popular bands in the world – including Tears For
Fears’ “Hold Me Now,” Simple Minds’ “Don’t You Forget About Me,” John
Waite’s “Missing You” and Glass Tiger’s “Someday.”

“They’re amazing songs,” Frew says, “Songs that I loved as a fan and
now love even more of as a vocalist. Due to the production of the time,
so many songs of the 80’s weren’t quite appreciated for just how
beautiful and well-crafted they are. So, in the studio, we let the voice
lead the way and went with ‘less is more’ when it came to the band.”

The intent was to completely reinvent the songs by adopting a
stripped-down approach in an effort to ensure their melodies, lyrics and
core sentiments shone through as never before. “And the end result is
exactly what we envisioned, pure and simple,” Frew says.
