A solo album for Tom Keifer has indeed a long while in the making. He first started working on a solo record after the break-up of Cinderella in 1995. It never happened. Instead, Cinderella reunited in 1997 and have had various tours since but did not record any more studio albums.
Keifer has signed with Jack Ponti’s Merovee Records, a joint venture with David Letterman’s Worldwide Pants.
The album will feature 14 tracks described by Ponti as “intimate, organic, acoustic tracks to driving hard rock. It embraces the blues, rock and country roots”.
The lyrics will take an introspective look at Keifer’s life these past 15 years. In that time he suffered a partially paralyzed left vocal chord and was told that he would never sing again.
Expect the Tom Keifer solo record around Spring 2013.
