– With a single already out, the duo of Burns and Pope may have their debut disc out in March.
If the names are familiar, that's because Keith Burns used to be one-third of Trick Pond. Michelle Poe had a solo career going, first signing with DreamWorks Records. She never released an album for DreamWorks.
The current single, Don't Get No Better Than That goes for ads Jan. 12, 2010.
Label head Steve Pope said an album could be out "maybe March."
The recording is "pretty much," done, he said. "They are still writing pretty writing regularly for it. Most of the songs have been cut for it."
The duo joined forces about a year ago and approached Pope about signing to Blue Steel Records. "It was kind of a no brainer really because they had so much going on," Pope says. "I didn't have to put a lot of effort into it."
The label originally was called J & V Records. Pope changed it to Blue Steel. "It just jumped out as me at being a better name. We've been rocking with it."
Anna Garrot, of Troy, Ala., released her debut in November. Lathan Moore is slated to release an album in 2010.
