Re: the lack of updates

So, as you've probably figured out, I don't update this page very often. Check our Facebook page for more timely updates!

Jan 2018 - New CD almost done!

Our newest CD, Race to the Sound, is finally done! In addition to the usual crew of Pemberton Roach, Shawn Murray, Bob Stander, and myself, this one features a ton of special guests. Mastering is done, and now it's off for duplication.

July 2014 - Update

What’s in a name? Last Charge of the Light Horse. Any why pick a name that’s so hard to remember? In 2003, after the breakup of yet another band, I decided to stop naming the groups, and name the journey instead. Because I’m still on the same journey I began in high school, even if I’m sharing the road with a different set of fellow travelers. Last Charge of the Light Horse. Partly a nod to George Harrison and his label Dark Horse records, and to Peter Weir’s film Gallipoli. I was born in the year of the horse. More than one friend has persistently suggested that I should use my own name. But I would rather focus on the journey, not the traveler. Also a reminder to myself not to hold anything back.

– Jean-Paul

 

Grammy winners!

Congratulations to Last Charge lead guitarist Bob Stander and drummer Shawn Murray for the much-deserved recognition of their work on "All About Bullies… Big and Small," winner of the 2011 Grammy award for Best Children's Album.

Artwork

 

We've been fortunate to have some great artists help us out with artwork for our album covers. Tony Ingrisano is letting us use one of his pieces for the cover of our forthcoming 2011 EP Curve (release date TBA), Rami Efal painted the cover for Fractures, and Tom McKee did the art for Getaway Car.

Digital Single - This is Where

Our single This is Where is available for dowload at iTunes, cdbaby, and various other sites. It was recorded and mixed by Bob Stander at Parcheesi Studios, and features Shawn Murray on drums, Bob Stander on lead guitar and bass, and JP on guitar and vocals.

Guest Appearances

Bob Stander and I both contributed some guitar to the forthcoming Miles to Dayton release Pass It On. M2D are one of my favorite bands, so be sure to check out their music! I also sang on the recent Paradiddle Records holiday release War Is Over.
