Well it's been a difficult year, I guess that's how it goes when the singer leaves the band. It's been a bit lost for a while as most of the band got involved with other projects. The good news is that there are loads of new songs written & the first one is recorded. It's called 'Northern Town' & features Paris Angels frontman Rikki Turner on vocals. We are recording a few more tunes with various excellent guest over the coming months. Firstly though we have the last single 'Run Tings' with Sugar on vocals. That will be heading your way at the end of February.. More news on that soon.
July 2014 - New Single Release
Big apologies about the several delays regarding the new single 'Run Tings', problem is when the singer leaves the band it kind of throws a spanner in the works & we lost focus for a while. The mix will be in in the next week or so & then we can sort a release date. The song is called 'Run Ting's' & is a pretty cool goodbye from Sugar.
In the meantime the rest of the band have been on different projects all which will be released over the enxt 6 months or so. Having said that new chapter of the SupaJamma story has not been neglected. There are around 20 new SupaJamma tunes written, 3 recorded & when we;'ve got the 4th down there will be a 7 inch vinyl EP up for grabs. The band will be 'SupaJamma Inc'. as we have invited various guest vocalists to contribute their talents to the songs. The first of 3 such releases will be early next year & we are planning some live events.
June 2014 - Physical Album Release
There will be a compilation of all the SupaJamma recordings available on CD album following the final single with Sugar. This will include the original 'That Was Then, This is Now' EP plus the current & next single with a few tunes that are still waiting to be mixed. Might just look at a couple of bonus demos as well. It will be a limited release. More news when it's all sorted.
