Frontier & Ronny J Morson Billy
Frank and Dave Gray are New Frontier. A chance meeting after
10 years brought them together. They had previously worked
in bands with record contracts, on theatre shows and writing
songs recorded by US artists. They found they had the same
musical tastes and New Frontier was started in the mid-1990s
as a vehicle for country material aimed at the US market.
Ronny J Morson is a UK based country singer and songwriter.
He has successfully toured for many years and released his
own albums for sale in the UK.
Comebacks Techno Cowpokes, A tribute
to the heyday of the singing Cowboys produced for a modern
age. Where the goodies dont necessarily wear White Hats and

O'Dea somewhat a veteran of the Midlands
music scene. Since his days fronting the torch bearers of
country tinged rock n roll here in the Midlands The Love Hounds,
Gary has delivered a no-nonsense approach and a collection
of songs to rival many an American roots artist
Wranglers roots lie close to the pioneering
rockabilly styles of 1950's masters such as Carl Perkins,
and Roy Orbison's original band, The Teen kings - acoustic
rhythm guitar and bass, with a strong beat centred around
guitar, in the fashion of Chet Atkins (among others). Add
to this equation country fiddle, accordion, steel guitar and
a second lead guitar, and the potential is there for some
fairly off the wall rocking country music.
Finally things evolved into a full family band (around 1994)
including Pete jnr. on steel guitar with Louise taking over
on accordion. The setup was completed when Irene joined in
1996, on steel (with Pete jnr. going over to drums).

a worldwide single release, featuring soul diva Chaka Khan
and supergroup Pink Floyd's rock Guitarist, Dave Gilmour.
