PORTLAND — Best known as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of the Philadelphia-based blues-and-rock band Cinderella, Tom Keifer is making his debut as a solo artist with the release of his long-awaited and highly anticipated solo album, "The Way Life Goes" on Tuesday, April 30. “The Flower Song” will be serviced to AAA radio stations nationwide on Monday, Feb. 4, while “Solid Ground” will be serviced to all Rock formats on Monday, March 11.
To get an early start on the album release’s celebration, Keifer will launch his first-ever solo tour. The 14-city trek of small, intimate rooms is an up-close and personal preview of songs from his new album along with some Cinderella classics.
Songs from his new album range from intimate, organic, acoustic tracks to driving hard rock. His music embraces the blues, rock and country roots that have always been present in his unique sound. "The Way Life Goes" is a raw, introspective look at the roller coaster ride that has been Keifer’s life for the past 15 years. From being told that he would never sing again as a result of a partially paralyzed left vocal cord, to the emotional and personal battles that followed, his solo debut is a story of perseverance, a testament to the power of passion and will, when combined with a true love of music.
Keifer will perform on Sunday, Feb. 17 at Asylum, 121 Center St. For ticket information, visit www.portlandasylum.com or call 207-772-8274.
