"In the midst of a mainstream culture, inundated by studio “perfection,” Fisher and Jackson planned on doing the exact opposite, referencing the old adage that honesty is the best policy. On the heels of a very successful crowd-funding campaign, which raised in excess of $25,000.00, Flagship Romance headed into the studio in January 2014 to record their first full-length album, entitled “Fee-Fie-Foh-Fum.” The stripped tracks on this new album consist of full-takes, with no splicing or tuning. Given the intimate, yet energetic quality of their live performances, this new record is a raw, real, and organic experience. In addition to the album, Fisher and Jackson invited a team of professional cinematographers to travel with them and document the entire recording process. This behind the scenes documentary features the studio performances, the duo’s love-laced back-story, the beautiful nature surrounding the home-studio, as well as a featurette discussing Florida’s ever-growing water crisis."

New artists also include Scott and Michelle Dalziel of Dunnellon, Fla. Talk about a dynamic duo! Their new songwriting project is in the works and is expected to be released this fall. Sharon and Dan Pillen (Third Born Lefties) released a wonderful original song recording a while back and we look forward to the next one from this talented duo.In other news... this spring saw the release of our much awaited and long anticipated "Oklawaha County Jamboree: A Gamble Rogers Tribute", a fundraising project to benefit The Gamble Rogers Folk Festival held in St. Augustine every May. This project continues to receive lovely kudos and critical acclaim as it makes it's way out into the world. We are mighty pleased with and proud of all of great musical contributions as well as grateful for the financial support of the Florida folk community to make this dream a reality. Another milestone project for Gatorbone Records was the release of Flagship Romance's recording, "Fee Fie Foh Fum", featured at the right.
