From melodicrock.com:

 

MelodicRock Records is very proud to announce a partnership with Trixter bassist P.J. FARLEY for the release of his debut solo album ‘Boutique Sound Frames’, due for release worldwide May 20.
‘Boutique Sound Frames’ is an outstanding musical statement from a dynamic singer/songwriter, who dives into 11 modern melodic rock tracks guaranteed to stay on high rotation in the months ahead.
P.J. describes the album he’s spent over a decade writing:
“I wrote and recorded these songs over the years alongside any band I was in at the time. I felt that the songs weren’t a good fit for any of those bands at that point. These songs are a lot more personal and I guess I always felt at some point I would release a solo record based on the nature of the lyrics.”
“They all came from a very genuine place creatively speaking. That there was no set goal with them enabled me to just write whatever I was feeling at the time, without having any pressure to conform to any certain mold, genre or label chirping. It took 12 years or so, haha, but a wise man once said, ‘If it’s good enough, it doesn’t matter when it comes out’”.
Well, it’s finally coming out May 20 and you can pre-order today! All pre-orders will receive a limited edition sticker of the album cover as well as getting the disc shipped ahead of the official release date.

P.J. FARLEY started his professional career as a musician at the ripe old age of 16 as the bass player for Trixter (www.trixterrocks.com). The band signed its first major label record deal with MCA Records in 1989. Trixter went on to sell well over 1 million records and had 3 #1 videos on MTV. They toured with bands like Kiss, Poison, Scorpions, Warrant and more.
P.J. has played just about every arena/theater/outdoor pavilion and club all over the world.
In 2002 P.J joined up with Active Rock chart toppers RA (Universal/Republic) in which he embarked on the 2nd chapter of his recording and touring career. Sneaking into the Modern Hard Rock genre and touring with bands like Staind, Seether and Sevendust , P.J. was able to remain relevant and creative in the music business while Trixter took a 13 year hiatus.
In 2009 P.J. was asked to join up with Lita Ford and toured worldwide with her for almost 4 years, along with a number of short stints with other artists such as
Ours, Jimmy Gnecco and Deepfield.
All along this timeframe, P.J. had been quietly recording songs. Writing, performing all instruments and producing. Those songs have become a cohesive collection that now make up his debut solo album titled‘Boutique Sound Frames’.

All bass players are aspiring lead guitarists, and all lead guitarists aspiring lead singers. Killed two birds with one stone here.

 

Sounds like something from a Foo Fighters album to me.

Haha. I'd like to know what Jez has to say about that. And maybe Paul, but I doubt he's ever on anymore.

I like the song, a decent amount of modern touch to it, making it like those songs that used to be covered by Boyce Avenue,

but I hope the album will contain more uptempo rockin' songs

You lost me at Foo Fighters.

 

I don't hear Foo Fighters at all, but that's just me. I don't know the Foo Fighters that well (by choice) but this just sounds like good modern rock to me. I agree with Shamus, that this reminds me a bit of 40ft Ringo and Stereo Fallout. Maybe a little more sing/songwriter than those two, but similar vibe. I like it.

That was my first thought. Not really my cup of tea, but I certainly respect the success FF have garnered over the years.

Only got through a few of them, but they sounded pretty good.

I don't mean to offend fans of either of those two bands, but if your description happened to be what the record company put on the promotional label of this CD I'd run the other way faster than Carl Lewis in Seoul, Korea circa September 1988.
