While self-quarantining together the Fogerty Family, featuring John with his sons Shane, Tyler (Hearty Har) and daughter Kelsy, gathered in their home studio to play some music together. An idea was spawned; why not film these session’s and release them as videos? Opening “Fogerty’s Factory,” done all from their home with very little pro equipment to film, Julie Fogerty produced the videos while the family played, to make this work. It was a total family affair with a new video released each Friday as part of a special YouTube series. Fans loved it, eagerly waiting each week to hear John’s songs, bringing back good memories and comfort during these scary and unchartered times.
What began as some quality time together, playing music as a family, has now become a digital EP. Via BMG, Fogerty’s Factory, is now available on all digital platforms in celebration of John Fogerty’s 75th Birthday!
John Fogerty comments: “Bringing a little light from our home to yours. We are having a little family fun together during the pandemic. It’s such a great feeling to be making and playin’ music surrounded by love. We all need to celebrate the life we have and remember how precious it is. I love music, I am listening every day. Makes everything feel better for me. Put the records on, pull out the old guitar, turn the radio up.. and dance to the music!”
