Dick Dale
Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's. Not the '60's as is commonly believed. He was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.

The Spring of 2017 will mark the release of Falling Stars first album, Stranded in the Future. The album is the culmination of two years of writing by Cleveland rock and roll veterans Chris Allen (Rosavelt/The Boys From the County Hell) and Tim Parnin (Cobra Verde/Sweet Apple) in Allen’s garage studio. The results of those sessions is an 11 song blast of two guitar rock that enters new landscapes outside of the duo’s acclaimed past.

Stranded in the Future was recorded at the Fidelitorium Studios of Mitch Easter who also engineered. The album was produced and mixed by Don Dixon, who also played bass on the album and will be a part of the live band. The veteran duo of Dixon and Easter produced and recorded some of 80’s best pop rock records including REM’s Murmur and Reckoning.

On drums was veteran drummer Rob Ladd (Alannis Morissette/Don Henley) rounding out the lineup. The album was mastered by Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound whose credits include a laundry list of rock legends from John Lennon to Bob Dylan to classic albums such as Springteen’s Born to Run and Petty’s Damn the Torpedoes.
