The Preacher Of Punk, Greg Davis, Brings "Blood on the Saddle's" Catalog To Ton-Up Records

The Complete "Blood On The Saddle" Catalog Available For Streaming On DSPs Now Through Ton-Up Inc.

NEW YORK - eTradeWire -- Ton-Up Records, a division of Ton-Up Inc., has entered into an agreement with Greg Davis, the groundbreaking musician, songwriter, and founder of the legendary Country Punk band, Blood on the Saddle.  The new Ton-Up Inc. deal covers the worldwide rights to Blood on the Saddle's recorded music catalog, including classics such as "I Wish I Was A Single Girl Again," "I Thought I Heard Some Thunder," "Endless Highway," "Born With a Hole in My Pocket" and more.

One of the most influential and important bands to emerge from the early 80s Los Angeles' music scene, Blood on the Saddle arguably helped lay the foundation for the Alt-Country genre.  Greg Davis successfully developed the idea of mixing Bluegrass with the aggression of Punk Rock, demonstrated in the band's ten albums and forty-year career.

The original line-up consisted of: Singer/Songwriter/Musician Annette Zilinskas (The Bangles, The Ringling Sisters, Medicine), Drummer Hermann Senac (Guilty Hearts, Crowbar Salvation), and Bass Player Ron Botelho (Groovy Rednecks).  The current line-up includes veteran drummer Dave Frappier, who has been with the band since 1994,  and newly recruited bass player Joe Dean (The Wrinkling Bros.).

"I'm looking forward to working with Ton-Up Records," said Greg Davis. "The company is independent, artist owned, and they understand the music industry in the 21st century."

"Blood on the Saddle's music is exciting, unique, and has been a part of the culture for four decades," said Edward Star, CEO of Ton-Up Inc. "Greg Davis is one of the most innovative and exciting musicians of his generation and I look forward to working with him to bring Blood on the Saddle's music to the next generation of fans."
