Having Set the 'Scene in San Francisco' With a Billboard Top 30 Hit as Well as a Top 15 Hit on FMQB'S AC40 Chart, Ed Hale Keeps the Momentum Going With 'I Walk Alone'

While Working on His Solo Follow Up Album to 'Ballad on Third Avenue,' the Renowned Brit-Pop Modern Rocker (and Accidental AC Star) Is Set to Kick Off a Ten City Tour That Reunites Members of His Longtime Band, The Transcendence

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 19, 2012) - Modern rocker turned Adult Contemporary star Ed Hale ( has been feeling the love of thousands of new fans since he set the "Scene in San Francisco" -- his most recent hit single which reached the Top 15 on the FMQB AC40 Chart and Billboard's Top 30.

They'll no doubt be joining him in spirit as he takes a solitary stroll on "I Walk Alone," the new single from his solo album Ballad on Third Avenue.

The brand new digitally remixed and re-mastered radio version of the moody, melodic pop-rock anthem -- which differs significantly from the track that appears on the album -- will be released to iTunes on the same day (July 9) it hits radio nationwide. "New Orleans Dreams," the first single from Ballad on Third Avenue, also hit the Adult Contemporary Top 40 climbing to #10.

Those who have followed Hales' extraordinary career over the past decade know that he is not just about those soaring ballads. His band, long time indie-rock stalwarts Ed Hale and the Transcendence, are releasing yet another new album less than nine months after last year's rock epic All Your Heroes Become Villains. The bubblegum pop/indie garage rocker The Great Mistake will be released by mid-summer.

Hale and his band will soon embark on a ten-city tour that will feature songs from both Hale's solo albums and all the Transcendence albums. The shows will feature the entire crew of Transcendence alumni reunited and playing on stage together for the first time since 2008.

Ever the prolific musical over-achiever, Hale is also currently working on a new solo album due out in early fall. Hale is recording the as yet untitled collection at The Shire and Bear Creek Studios in Seattle, where many notable artists have worked over the years, including Fleet Foxes, Train, Soundgarden, Nirvana and The Foo Fighters.
