It's official: TRICK PONY has reunited after seven years. They got together for a one-off show last fall, but didn't make it official until now. They posted the news on their updated website.
Singer HEIDI NEWFIELD, who gave up a mildly successful solo career, said, quote, "You can't go forward unless you've visited your past and go, 'Let's not do a repeat performance of that.' We've done that, and we're all in a really healthy mind space."
Bassist IRA DEAN did some producing, and wrote songs for MONTGOMERY GENTRY and RASCAL FLATTS. He says, quote, "It's not like we took a hiatus. We just played in different bands. We never slowed down on the road."
This surely means the end of BURNS & POE . . . the duo featuring guitarist KEITH BURNS and MICHELLE POE. Keith is all excited about what's ahead. He says, quote, "I don’t feel like Trick Pony's music ever lived up to what we did live. But what we're working on now does that very thing. We have no doubt in our minds that we're going to get up there onstage and blow those people away."
The group is working on a new album, which should be out sometime this year. They'll also launch a tour to support it.
