MSC: News from Denice Franke

FINALLY, we have launched the new Denice Franke website! Check it out at (including photos from me!).

We hope you like the new look. There are a couple of new features - we've added an Archive Photo page (get to it from the Photos link). We will be adding more photos over the next few weeks. We haven't had a chance to label all of the photos or give photo credits yet but we are working on it.

You'll also notice a new Video page with some archive videos (Denice with Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith back in the mid-80s) and a couple of performances from Denice's recent tour in the Netherlands as well.

For venues and promoters, we have an updated EPK (electronic press kit) with new promo pics and a new downloadable poster. We also have an anonymously written piece about Gulf Coast Blue and a wonderful biographical piece written by freelance writer Lynn Adler (co-proprieter of noted live music venue Crossroads Coffeehouse & Music Co in Winnsboro, Texas, and one half of the duo Adler & Hearne).

DENICE'S NEW RECORD, Gulf Coast Blue, produced by Mark Hallman, will be released August 5! You can pre-order on the Store page of the website. (Thanks to the folks at the ConneXtion.) You can hear sound bites of the tracks by visiting the Music or EPK page.

WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE the first CD Pre-Release show will be close to home at Anderson Fair in Houston, Texas, on Saturday, August 2, so mark your calendars! There are several other releases planned around Texas in Austin (Aug 8), Dallas (Aug 15), Winnsboro (Aug 16), and La Grange (Aug 23). For more details or for a complete schedule of all of Denice's dates, please visit the tour page at

If you would like to host a concert or have Denice play a venue near you, please contact us at We are finalizing the '08 dates and booking '09 now.

MANY thanks to Sue Peete who has worked so hard to get the website ready for the new release. We also want to thank Tammy Peete for her help with the site as well. A very special thanks to Bill Peete who left us way too soon but who together with Sue made Gulf Coast Blue a reality.

And thanks to all of you for your continued support of Denice's music. Let us know what you think of the new site (comments can be posted on the Guestbook).
