Latest Brew

11/29/2016 - We're all wrapped up with the turkey and napping, so that leaves only one thing to do.  That's right, we jumped up in the attic and pulled down all the decorations.  It's definitely looking a bit like Christmas around these parts of the old web.  Now we know that you've been good this year, well at least as good as can be expected.  So to celebrate the nice over naughty we're going to give you an early gift.  You're still going to have to wait until December 1st to open it, but it's going to be available to unwrap at the On Tap page in just a few days.  And speaking of giving, why not swing on out to the First City Arts Center in Pensacola, Florida this Saturday, December 3rd, and bring a whole sled full of non-perishable food items.  And you can enjoy some great bands in the process, including us Brew-Elves.  We're hoping to see you there.

11/3/2016 - And it's official.  Rue Blue, our latest album, is available at all your friendly neighborhood on-line stores, as long as your neighborhood is Amazon, iTunes, CD Baby, Bandcamp, and Google Play stores that is.  We had a great time releasing this thing at the Music Box October 15, and if you haven't already I encourage you to swing on by the Music page and give her a spin.  We're quite proud of how this one turned out, and we sincerely hope you feel the same.  But we're not resting on our laurels around here, no sir.  We're already busy writing and banging through the next set of Brewers gems, and we're shooting for an April 15 release date for that one.  And as a special treat, seeing yall have been so good all year, check out our new On Tap page December 1 for an early Brewers present, freshly tapped just for you.

10/4/2016 - It's almost upon us.  After a few months of recording and mixing we are ready to unleash the new Spearman Brewers album "Rue Blue".  This one's definitely not the stripped down affair of the last EP.  We broke out the mandolins, ukuleles, washboards, and pretty much any string we could get our hands on for this one.  What came out was something we're damn proud of, and we're throwing a party for it.  On October 15 (the official release date) we'll be slapping dem strings at the Music Box in Pensacola at 1pm, debuting a number of songs we've yet to play live.  We'll also have our friend Lang Holloman along for the ride, playing a set of his latest CD "Soul Bells".  After this last weekend's sets of older stuff at the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival we're definitely ready to ring in some new stuff, so come out and join the celebration.

9/6/2016 - Well gang it's officially time to let this cat out of the bag.  I know it's been a bit since I've updated yall on what's going on, and there's a great reason for that.  Rue Blue, our newest album, is just about ready to take out of the oven and serve.  We're quite proud of how this one has turned out, and to celebrate we're having a release party.  We'll be doing an in-store at the Music Box in Pensacola, Florida, starting up around 1pm.  We'll have the new CD ready to place in your hands, and we'll be playing tunes off of it as well as some old standbys.  We're even having a special guest joining in the festivities, and we'll let you know who when I put up another update later this week.  Keep checking in, we've got more news and more show announcements on the way.

7/23/16 - Yep folks, it's flat out hot down here on the Gulf Coast.  But don't let the heat fool you, we haven't slowed down.  We're still working up that new album, with a release date around September/October if all goes well.  We've also got a vinyl release in the works as well, but you're just going to have to wait a bit longer to get that one in your hands.  We've even managed to break out of the studio to get some live slapping in.  Weddings, reunions, benefits, bike nights, Prince tributes.  It's been a fun stretch for this front porch blues duo, and it's looking like there's more shows on the way.  So much for laying low during the dog days of summer.  One thing that has been laying low is the Straight 8 Half Hour Happy Hour.  There literally is zero AC in the Straight 8 Studio, so our show is in the off season.  Rest assured, season 2 is definitely coming down the pipe, that is once the thermometer comes down.  And that's all I've got.  Now excuse me while I get back to some strings.
