Cat on Thursday, November 11 with Jim Bianco opening. On November 2, Bleu released Four, “a stick of power-pop dynamite” (- LA Weekly), on his own The Major Label. With $40k in funding from fans (“It’s changed my whole world, I have a completely new outlook on my life and career”), Bleu’s new outlook has also inspired many of the ten tracks on Four. “Like everyone else, I’m always grappling with these issues of death, God, the afterlife, my legacy – all the real things,” Bleu notes of the album’s themes. “That’s reflected on this record; it’s not just a bunch of love songs.”   And he’s done it all in true Bleu style with infectious sing-a-longs on the opener “Singin’ in Tongues,” pays homage to his roots in the power-pop anthem “B.O.S.T.O.N”, and reflects on his life and legacy in gospel-inspired “Dead In The Morning”.   "It's hard not to hear a Bleu song and smile." - Twangville "How can you not love Bleu? This man is like a modern John Lennon, a musical genius... whatever he touches turns into gold." -Melodic.net  In addition to his solo work, production projects (Drake Bell, TV/TV, Air Traffic Controller, Chris Mann) and commercial tunesmithery, Bleu has organized and/or lent his voice and playing to inventive side projects like the rock band The Major Labels (with his pals and fellow pop geeks Mike Viola and Ducky Carlisle); the one-off ELO tribute L.E.O. (featuring Andy Sturmer of power-pop legends Jellyfish, Hanson, Matt Mahaffey of Self, and countless other aficionados of Jeff Lynne's musical confections); LoudLion (with Taylor Locke of Rooney); and numerous others.
