"JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. – Tate Music Group announces the album release of local Christian Celtic band, Broken Oaks"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Free-Press-Release.com) December 28, 2010 --
JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. – Tate Music Group announces the album release of local Christian Celtic band, Broken Oaks. The husband and wife team of Joe and Julie Devine, along with Dave Armento and Patricia DiCarlo, release their new project, “Waiting for the Wind,” this week. Punctuated with the rich acoustic sounds of Celtic music, Broken Oaks finds inspiration from Rich Mullins and their own ancient Irish traditions.

Produced by Tate Music Group, the album includes 12 tracks and is currently available nationwide at the iTunes Store, Amazon.com, or directly from TateMusicGroup.com.




Joe Devine is a Celtic guitarist and vocalist well-known for his stunning harmonies and unique guitar work. He has been dubbed the Harmony Dictator by those who know him well. Joe has four grown children and is married to Julie, who provides vocals and flute work for the band. Originally a worship leader from Michigan who met and married Joe after retiring as a Chief from the Navy and relocating to upstate New York, Julie is the ignition behind the group's passion to combat homelessness and hunger both in the U.S. and overseas. This first album is donating 10% of every album to an orphans and widows ministry in Kenya.

Dave Armento provides vocals, guitar, and banjo for Broken Oaks. He is well known to most Celtic venues in Albany and is also a musical composer. Patricia DiCarlo provides vocals, keys, and percussion for the band. Her classical vocal training brings an angelic element to the group’s harmonies. Patricia, Joe, and Dave were long-time music partners playing in and around Albany, New York, before forming Broken Oaks. Patricia and Joe have opened for two well-known Irish groups, Trinity and Barley Corn from Ireland.

Bio

Broken Oaks has been compared to a USO for our nation's broken families.
And they do this seamlessly by storytelling set to Celtic harmonies, which makes up Broken Oaks Little Town Music with a mission....

The group believes that the church can no longer pretend that broken families are the exception in church -- we must instead attend to our wounded.

Most of the members of the band, Broken Oaks, had played the Northeast Pub circuits for years before turning to Christ and then several years later, forming the group Broken Oaks.

And after years playing music at the high profile events such as the Hunter Mountain Festival, and opening for groups like the Wolftones (Ireland's No. 1 Folk Band) it seemed ironic to be signed to a major label while focusing on low-profile gigs like juvenile jails and hometown churches.

Broken Oaks now blends their trademark Celtic/County sound (Distinctively just as great LIVE as in studio) with story songs about the Lord and His incredible love for broken people. The Broken Oaks' message is desperately needed.

The band includes long time Celtic guitarist and vocalist, Joe Devine /Capital Region NY [Joe is well-known for his stunning harmonies and unique guitar work]

Dave Armento / Vocals, guitar, banjo. Dave's nickname is "Squirrel Ives" for his soulful vocals and his run-ins with squirrels. We will leave that to your imagination. Dave has played w/Joe and Pat for many years in an around the Capital District in many venues.

Patricia DiCarlo / Vocals, keys, percussions.....Tricia, Joe, and Dave were long-time music partners playing in and around Albany/Capital Region NY [Patricia and Joe...have opened for 2 well-known Irish groups, Trinity and The Wolfe tones from Ireland. Patricia contributes angelic vocals, gifted harmonies. percussions, and keyboard instrumentation.

Julie Devine / Vocals & flute ~ Originally a worship/song leader from Michigan, who met and married Joe after retiring from the Navy and relocating to upstate NY. Julie and Joe love to write songs that are not only Outreaching but also "In-Reaching" -- Julie began teaching to help support the band, but it was her time as a teacher that honed the band's mission to broken families across America.

Recently, Joe saw what he thought was a gang member threatening a kid, and though he might feel proud to have stopped the fight, the would-be-bully reminded him of the REAL Power behind Broken Oaks. "Hey Joe, remember me...your God music helped changed my life!"

Albums are sold by Amazon, i-tunes, Tate publishing and many other retailers .
