NEW YORK CITY (August 7, 2013) -- After significant delays due to Mother Nature and technology’s flaws,the gypsy cowpunk band Tania & The Revolutionaries are finally set to release their sophomore EP, Walk Away Clean.
Walk Away Clean is an EP that was intended to be a full-length album, but due to natural disasters and computer drives dying in foreign countries, 6 songs are being release. The trio started out recording in Nashville with Steve Goodie at Pitch Perfect Studios. Steve played guitar and mandolin on "Cold Dead Cupid", "Not For Long", and "My Rosita". Then they went to the amazing Paul Kostabi north of New York City. He recorded and mixed "Walk Away Clean" and "Why Do I". Those files were lost during Superstorm Sandy. Before the hurricane, the Revs went back to Kostabi's place where Tony Mann (drums, percussion, backing vocals) recorded "Epitaph". Other songs were recorded that day but not finished. He and Laura Sativa (flute, percussion, backing vocals) went [...]

NEW YORK CITY AND MELBOURNE (January 24, 2013) -- It’s been a busy year for Lani Ford so far. In January, she was granted with her 8th ASCAP Plus Award for performance and songwriting. “ASCAP Plus Awards are based on panel review of recent activity of writer applicants. Each applicant is considered on merit and in the context of all others applying. ASCAP Plus Awards is not a contest or competition involving the critical evaluation of any specific work or works.

First Newsletter of 2013!

Posted on January 2, 2013
bHere's hoping you have the best year ever!!!
It's that time of year to assess, take stock and recharge. I have been thinking a lot about everything that has happened up to this point and what comes next and it's pretty exciting. I am so lucky and grateful to have amazing friends all over the world. Isn't it great that we have the internet to keep in contact in real time? I want to communicate with you more and that is my goal for the upcoming year. Better website and newsletter. Don't worry you won't be hearing from me every 5 minutes like some bloggers that will go unnamed for now. LOL.

Anyway, my band Tania and The Revolutionaries are trying to finish up our EP of songs that we recorded with the amazing Paul Kostabi in NY and Steve Goodie in Nashville. It's taking us a bit longer than we thought since we are working together in at least 2 countries all the time as the other 2/3 of the Revolutionaries have re-located to Nicaragua for now. I hope to go see them in February and [...]
