Pushing Forward Strongly

by The Baker Street Irregulars

In the tradition of Plastic Ono, Wings & Rolling Thunder, this is classic rock texture with indie label spirit. A one-man-band (with a little help from his friends), singer/songwriter Brian McKnight creates landscapes both familiar and utterly original.

Album Notes
Pushing Forward Strongly is the first full-length release by Brian McKnight and his one-man band The Baker Street Irregulars since 2000's Hanging On For Dear Life (The 20th century Demos Volume 1). For Hanging On... McKnight was joined in the studio by Aaron Stiles on drums, Joshua Horvath on percussion, and Gabe McPherson on keyboards, along with a myriad of friends and family on backing vocals. All 17 songs were penned by McKnight. A classic rock sound wrapped in a indie hide, The Irregulars have rarely been glimpsed outside the confines of a studio, McKnight preferring to toil away in secret rather than play live, a fact that is changing with this new release. Live gigs are planned to coincide with the physical release of the new album later in the summer of 2014.

Now, following a dramatic battle with cancer, Pushing Forward Strongly finds McKnight in full voice again, once more playing guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, percussion, harmonica and handling vocals on the new release. For Pushing Forward Strongly McKnight has assembled an array of guests to play with including Cameron Blankenship on violin, Kevin Day on drums (on 'Break Away'), and The Extraordinairres and the George O'Sara Smith Singers on backing vocals. Production and arranging duties are still held by McKnight himself. In November of 2013 the first single in advance of the new album, 'Late Last Night', was released as a digital download through iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby. It was the first release from the band in over a decade and showcased The Grover's Corners Congregational Choir as background vocalists. It features prominently as the lead-off track on the new album, launching the 14 song set with a witty, fun intro that promises an album of thoughtful tunes and melodic introspection.
