Georgie Bonds releases new CD, "Stepping Into Time"!!

Philadelphia Blues singer, Georgie Bonds, has just released his long awaited second CD, Stepping Into Time. The CD includes 12 songs, 10 of which are original songs. The songs cover a range of styles, tempos, and subject matter but without a doubt, it's all Blues! His sweet but powerful voice  delivers his pain, his joy, his passion, and his history with every song. It's genuine and you can't help but be moved. He’s paid his dues by overcoming many difficult obstacles, some self-inflicted, arising along his life's journey. By refusing to yield and by conquering them, Georgie became stronger and wiser. It is our good fortune that his path led to this recording.

The CD is available on where digital download and song samples also available. Digital downloads are also available on iTunes.

The majority of the funding for this project was raised through a Kickstarter project late last year. Over 40 individuals contributed to this project and Georgie would like to extend his sincere and heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you for your generous support. Be sure to check out this recording -- you're sure to love it!
