BlackHawk recently signed with Raleigh, N.C.-based Loud & Proud Records. The band, comprised of Henry Paul and Dave Robbins, is working on their first studio release in 12 years.
“Brothers of the Southland is the product of BlackHawk’s evolution,” says Loud & Proud Owner & President Tom Lipsky. “It represents the band through the years and their many hits, the adversity they faced and Henry and Dave’s decision to continue their musical journey together. BlackHawk’s sound remains a beautiful blend of melody and harmony with genuine and purposeful lyrics and Loud & Proud is excited to be their label partner. We know their legions of fans are going to love experiencing this new music.”
Along with third founding member Van Stephenson, Paul and Robbins made their Country music debut in 1993. The band notched several hit singles including “Goodbye Says It All,” “Every Once In A While,” “I Sure Can Smell The Rain” and “That’s Just About Right.”
In 1999, Stephenson was diagnosed with melanoma. After a courageous fight, Van lost his battle in 2001. Henry and Dave established the Van Stephenson Memorial Cancer Research Fund in his memory, donating the proceeds of their efforts to the Vanderbilt Cancer Research Center.
Loud & Proud Records is an independent record label founded in 2007 by Lipsky. The label’s current roster includes Jonathan Jackson (currently on ABC’s Nashville) and his band Enation, singer/songwriter Willie Nile, and bands The Winery Dogs, Walking Papers, and Starship featuring Mickey Thomas. Loud & Proud Records is a registered trademark of Lipsky Music, LLC, and is distributed in the U.S. and Canada by RED.
