While this CD is has a very specific fan base, the broad appeal throughout the ten song debut is for anyone that loves powerful pop driven rock n roll music.

Songs For The Broken Hearted bursts open with its first track “Brightside Of Things,” which blends perfect with “Crashing Dow” and then throughout this ten song CD. The vocals are pushed to its maximum potential volume and the beat throughout the CD is where it should be to produce a great album. Each song are so entertaining they keep you singing along and stomping your feet. Songs For The Broken Hearted also packs in the solid ballad “So Lost Without You,” the potential sleeper song on this full length CD which is now set to hit retail on January 29.

Blackbird originally began playing the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California, before expanding its music ventures by participating in unique projects like the Tribute to the New York Dolls release in 2004. Vocalist/guitarist Arlee Patton along with brother Gabe Patton, the drummer joined forces with guitarist and vocalist Gary Jones and Michael Nightingale, the bass player for the band. They have clearly come a long way from the tribute album.

The ‘power pop band is loaded with originality and has offered fans of this genre great music for quite some time. “Blackbird is one of the final signings of the year after a brief signing freeze we had at the company,” says Don Lichterman, the head of eSunset Records and SRG’s Distributed Group of Labels. Lichterman goes on to say that “this is a great time to be a part of Sunset,” as the label group has just surpassed scanning over 115,000 downloads, streams and ringtones sold for the first three quarters in 2007.

The band is very optimistic and excited about being distributed at SRG. Arlie Patton, the bands main vocalist and guitar player states, “this is the perfect match for Blackbird” about eSunset / SRG with “their advanced technology and online distribution is above and beyond what we expected as a band.” “We are very excited to be part of the Sunset family” ends Patton with great excitement when asked about being distributed at SRG.

SRG, a privately owned Don Lichterman company, SRG is a fast growing Independent Record Label and Independent Distribution Company. The company has four major divisions, the Sunset Records Group of Distributed labels, the Sunset Strategic Marketing & Licensing Division, the Sunset-Digital Distribution Division and the Sunset-Filmed Entertainment Division. All corporate information and all information about the Sunset Group of Entertainment and media Companies are available online at www.SunsetHolding.com.

The songs flow refreshingly throughout the entire CD making up an energizing record from beginning to end. SRG is a fully serviceable record company and the band will now utilize these distribution tools to reach a global audience.
