Denver-based indie rock band Dressy Bessy is back with a new holiday single and a new plan. This time, the band is playing by its own rules. Having previously taken cues from its Sixties and Seventies heroes, Dressy Bessy is taking that one step further and plans to start releasing a series of singles next year and beyond.
Lead singer and guitarist, Tammy Ealom, along with rocker boyfriend, lead guitarist John Hill (The Apples in stereo), founding bass player Rob Greene, and the solid backbeat of Craig Gilbert, intends the work to be a full-length album, but released one or two songs at a time, “So this way”, Ealom says, “you won’t have to wait more than three months for new songs, ever.”
Dressy Bessy is kicking things off early with a new holiday single. “Mister Kringle’s” is dedicated to and inspired by Ms. Ealom’s father, Terry Atherton, a life-long record collector, dealer, and music lover, who succumbed to terminal illness in February, 2011. Ealom reflects, “My Dad was a mod in the sixties, so it’s really no wonder why I turned out the way I did. From the time he gave me my first record (“Hang On Sloopy” by The McCoys) he has always been a major influence on my music and me.”
The upcoming “album” plans include full digital releases every three months starting in March 2012, with videos and limited edition vinyl along the way. CD and vinyl collections will follow in 2013. All songs will be available at select online marketplaces and directly from the band’s website. There you will find a variety of single downloads, various merchandising, as well as several “Club House” subscription packages that should be enticing to both the casual Dressy Bessy fan and the most dedicated.
“We’ve always had an emphasis on having fun,” says Dressy Bessy guitarist and recording engineer, John Hill. “Recently we realized the ups and downs that come with a full album production. It was just getting in the way of our fun. We want to make music our way, release it, and keep it coming. This should keep us happy and in turn our music and our fans will benefit,” Hill concludes.
While Dressy Bessy’s holiday single is only one track and might leave you wanting more, rest assured that the next pop gem by Dressy Bessy is on the horizon, and Ealom, Denver’s here-and-now girl, is up to the task. “I can keep up this pace forever,” she says, “So you’d better get ready to rock!”
