Contributor Vince Tuckwood drops his new album!

Author/musician Vince Tuckwood has just released his brand new album Turquoise Cyan Sapphire.   As a long time collaborator and contributor to the Boutique Empire team we are pleased to share it with you.   A strong move forward with his writing and performing, Turquoise Cyan Sapphire offers an update on his former music and sees his production step up on all sides.  As he put it in his own blog, these songs represent the closest he feels comfortable to playing traditional Blues bases songs.  Thus the blue tinged title to the work!

Vince has even enlisted his daughter on trumpet on a couple of the songs  making this release the first Tuckwood multigenerational album.  Have a listen for yourself, and of course if you enjoy it please feel free to purchase a copy to encourage more music from Vince in the future!
