New Marc Pettigrew CD: Second Wind

http://www.marcpettigrew.com/music/
Second Wind, the latest stupendous CD from Burlington singer/songwriter Marc Pettigrew is more than just the name of the album.  The title also describes the story behind it's making.

Marc put his four decade music career on hold because of a genetic lung disease.  In September 2012, he received a double lung transplant.  Shortly after the gift of his "Second Wind" comes this amazing disc.

His voice is obviously as strong as ever on the album as he sings through great rock and folk tracks (some with a Caribbean flavour).  Marc's storytelling skills are also incredible.

Joining him in his wonderful comeback are the Weber Brothers (Sam and Ryan), Marcus Browne, Shia "Cookie" Pier, and James McKenty of the Spades (who also engineered.  The album was ably produced by Steve Loree.

You can purchase the CD or download it at cdbaby. It can also be downloaded though iTunes.
