LOS ANGELES, CA –WABC NEWS — 07/27/12 — Modern rocker turned accidental Adult Contemporary star Ed Hale (www.edhale.com) is back in the studio working on his latest solo album — and he’s letting fans in on the action.
Beginning July 30, the singer, joined by drummer Bill Sommer and bassist Roger Houdaille — both members of his longtime band, indie rock stalwarts The Transcendence — will offer an intimate glimpse of the sessions, video streaming live from NYC as they record the final tracks for the release, scheduled to drop this fall.

The three musicians will keep the cameras rolling throughout the process, allowing fans to “hang out” and experience the music as it comes to life. During breaks in recording, they intend to sit down and answer questions fans send via Twitter (@ ed_hale) or Facebook (www.facebook.com/edhalemusic).
The as yet untitled collection is the follow up to Hale’s solo album Ballad On Third Avenue, which has spawned two Top 40 hits for the singer, the dreamy acoustic protest ballad “New Orleans Dreams” and the romantic “Scene In San Francisco.”
The project is being produced by Houdaille, frontman for the band Ex Norwegian and longtime member of The Transcendence, and features contributions by all the usual members of The Transcendence and honorary members of the band.
The Transcendence’s long awaited new album The Great Mistake is scheduled for release September 18.
Hale and his band will soon embark on a ten-city tour that will feature songs from both Hale’s solo albums and all the Transcendence albums. The shows will feature the entire crew of Transcendence alumni reunited and playing on stage together for the first time since 2008.
The tour kicks off with a homecoming show at the Gibson Showroom in Miami before heading to other Gibson Showrooms in nine major U.S. cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Austin, Seattle, Las Vegas and Nashville.

It’s Been Reported That Indie Breakout Recording Artist (and Accidental Adult Contemporary Super-Star) Ed Hale Has Signed a Publishing Deal With Fieldhouse Music/BMG and Has Been Picked Up by TouchTunes Interactive Network — the World’s Leading ‘Digital Jukebox’

THE GIBSON GUITAR ENDORSED SINGER-SONGWRITER CONTINUES TO RIDE THE SUCCESS OF HIS BILLBOARD CHARTING SMASH HITS “SCENE IN SAN FRANCISCO” AND “NEW ORLEANS DREAMS”

NEW YORK, NY, May 08, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Ed Hale’s been a critically acclaimed force in modern rock for years as front man for the eclectic band, Ed Hale and the Transcendence. Since becoming an accidental Adult Contemporary star via his latest solo hit, the acoustic-driven “Scene in San Francisco,” the New York-based singer-songwriter’s career has been in overdrive.

Hale just signed a lucrative publishing deal with Fieldhouse Music/BMG, a company offering a new breed of music production which specializes in discovering and promoting new talent for film and TV soundtracks.

John Loeffler, President of Fieldhouse Music/BMG, commented, “Fieldhouse Music/BMG is very excited about the signing of Ed Hale. He has an extensive catalog of great material and is a true talent.”

In addition, the entire catalog of Ed Hale and his band The Transcendence — eight albums in all — have been picked up by TouchTunes Interactive Networks, which introduced the first digital jukebox 14 years ago and is now the leading in-venue entertainment network, streaming music through jukeboxes and piped-in digital feeds. TouchTunes reaches consumers in over 52,000 bars, restaurants and retail locations in North America.

“Scene in San Francisco,” which is Hale’s second single to break into both Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Top 30 Chart and the Top 15 on FMQB’s AC40 Chart — putting Hale in the company of pop superstars like Maroon 5, Adele, Kelly Clarkson and OneRepublic — has also been picked up by the Landmark Theatres chain for their In Theatre Music Program where the song will be played in more than 500 movie theaters around the U.S. in May.

Hale says he’s been “walking on clouds,” and enjoying the many perks of his most recent rise in popularity, including endorsement deals with Kurzweil Music Systems, Nord, Ultrasone, Gibson Guitars and Dean Markley Guitar Strings. “All these companies have been super cool, and the new gear will really help us with recording the new albums,” Hale stated. He is set to release at least two new albums in 2012.
