Win HalfDown Thomas' 'Beautifully Strange' CD!

Cullman, AL-based rock quartet HalfDown Thomas will see their new album, “Beautifully Strange,” released via Rock Ridge Music on February 17, 2009. The band had the honor of working on the record with 3 Doors Down’s Chris Henderson as producer.

In addition to Henderson’s production, the album boasts mixing by Geoff Ott (3 Doors Down, Nickelback, Unwritten Law) and Kirk Kelsey (3 Doors Down, Creed, Redding). Bobby Capps of .38 Special contributed vocals on several songs, and Ivan Arnold of Five.Bolt.Main engineered some of the album. The first single, “Guiltless (Mend Your Broken Heart),” will for adds at rock radio on January 27, 2009.

“Getting the incredible opportunity to meet Chris Henderson and [Rock Ridge Music CEO] Tom Derr has proved to be the best thing to ever happen to HalfDown Thomas,” says guitarist Wesley Smith. “Rock Ridge Music's commitment to our success is unrivaled, and we are excited to see where their direction will take us! Chris is the hardest-working guy I know. When we were working with him, he’d only get four to five hours of sleep before he was back to work. It was fantastic being in the studio with him. He’s very down-to-earth, and he gets what we are doing.”

“This band is so easy to work with,” says Henderson. “From a production standpoint, they provided me with a wide open palette, bringing some amazing riffs into the studio, then taking my suggestions to the next level in their continuing songwriting endeavors.”

If you would like to win your own copy of this new CD, just answer this easy question: The band originally entered the studio in Mississippi, with Henderson producing, in 2005. Then something 'hit', leaving the studio, and the master recordings for the album, under twelve feet of water?! But what was it that 'hit'?!
