American Heroes on CD

The American Heroes CD contains approximately 125 of the best voicemail messages we've received from Americans across the USA thanking the troops. Six original, inspirational pop/rock songs written and performed by the father and son band, Live Free (tm), are also included on the CD. The title track for the CD, 'American Heroes,' has been written and recorded specifically for this project. Don't Tread on Me was first written as a dedication to the troops just after American forces went into Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein. It has been entirely re-written, re-recorded, and improved for this project. Band Introduction Live Free (tm) is a father and son project headquartered near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The band has two members, James Mayer and his eldest son, Adam Mayer (21). 'Although our band can probably best be categorized as pop/rock,' explains James, 'a number of our songs are better suited to other music formats. We expect quite a few of our songs to be well received by country music listeners, for example, not only because of their 'sound, but also because of the traditional American values reflected in them. Adam's solos songs are more alternative is sound and structure.' Both James and Adam enjoy and are influenced by a broad variety of musical artists and styles. Thus, it is only natural that Live Free (tm) offers listeners everything from alternative genre compositions, to lushly orchestrated ballads, to raucous rock, and lots in between. Rich melody, blended acoustic and electric guitars, and abundant vocal harmony, flavor much of the band's work. James and Adam are both active songwriters, each capable of hammering out the basics of a new song in a sitting. The band enjoys a rather loose organizational structure. One product of a flexible approach to music making is that some Live Free (tm) recordings have both band members (and occasionally others) performing on them, and some have the song writer doing all of his musical work solo. Because Adam and James play a variety of instruments and both sing, who plays what, and who does the vocal work varies from song to song. It can also be the subject of spirited debate.
