Announcing Cindertalk (aka Jonny Rodgers), 7" Record Store Day Exclusive To Help End Child Trafficking
STREAM "SPERO" - http://www.soundcloud.com/cindertalk/spero
Cindertalk is the new stage and studio name of multi-instrumetalist singer-songwriter Jonny Rodgers. After years of touring in bands like Mighty Purple, Son Lux, Ten Shekel Shirt, as well as solo, Jonny thought it would be a good time to take an overarching name for his music - songs for glass, electronics and guitars with an ever changing cast of musical guests.
The term "cindertalk" is one that Jonny coined during the past winter.
"My wife Desirea and I live in a house heated by firewood," Jonny explains. "On winter mornings we rebuild the fire, and sometimes, though it looks dead, you can hear the glassy murmuring of live coals hidden in the ash – hot enough to start a blazing fire if only the right fuel is added. I call that sound Cindertalk."
Jonny's first release as Cindertalk is a 7" Record Store Day exclusive for his song "Spero,” which Jonny wrote after he met a rescued child slave a few years ago. In keeping with his passion for helping to end child trafficking and modern slavery, a portion of all sales will go to Love146.org, an organization Jonny's wife co-founded in 2004. The album is limited to 250 copies on clear vinyl with artwork by Chris Maynard.
Cindertalk's first show under the new moniker will be at The University of Houston's CounterCurrent 14 Festival, a collaborative performance with digital violinist / composer Todd Reynolds. The performance will kick off Houston's five-day festival dedicated to bold experimental art. April 9th, 9pm at 112 Milam Street, Houston. Admission is free with RSVP (firstname.lastname@example.org). There will be an open bar and light refreshments served.
