Long Island Based Singer/Songwriter Freddy Monday Takes Fans on a Colorful, Irresistible Journey of His Life With the New Indie Release 'Everything Anyhow'

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - To riff off the title of a bona fide blues classic, they call him FreddyMonday (www.freddymonday.com) -- the Long Island, N.Y. based singer-songwriter.

True to the title of his new 12 song album Everything Anyhow, the multi-talented performer has done it all, from touring the East Coast -- performing several times at the Nassau Coliseum -- to licensing many of his songs for film and television over the past few years. Tracks from his debut album Words in Pencil have been heard on the Lifetime sitcom "Side Order of Life,"CBS' classic soap "The Young and The Restless,""Moonlight" (also CBS), "Dark Blue" (TNT) and "Burn Notice" (USA).

Monday also co-wrote the title track to the Sunset Pictures Film "Born To Ride," due July 24, with Vincent Alfieri from Deetown Entertainment. Alfieri and Deetown have been huge in the film soundtrack world, with songs penned for blockbusters like the "Transformer" movies, "Alvin and the Chipmunks" and "Iron Man."

Even though his fans and TV and film music supervisors are always clamoring for more Monday, he's the one aiming to "Please" on his new grooving, country flavored pop-rocker, which was released as a digital single prior to the official drop of Everything Anyhow. In the recently completed video for the song -- shot in Chelsea to give it a distinctive NYC feel -- Monday "plays a woman like a guitar" the same way Paul McCartney did in The Beatles film "Help!" The song's co-writer John Snow also plays a riff on his 12-string at the end that is reminiscent of the classic Beatles tune.

Monday's musical history includes two iconic names you have most likely never seen side by side before: Jimmy Buffett and Davy Jones of The Monkees. When Monday's alt-rock band Sorethumb was down in Key West, Fla. cutting a track at Buffett's Shrimp Boat Studio, Buffett jammed with them at Margaritaville, where they had a popular annual gig every Spring Break. A few years after the Buffet coup, Monday snagged the always game Davy Jones to make a colorful cameo in a 60's mod themed video for his novelty rocker "I Want To Be Your Davy Jones," which received play on VH1.
