The buzz has been building nicely with interviews and exclusive song streams in USA Today, Rolling Stone.com, Huffington Post, Le Soleil and more. The single "I Can't Stand the Rain" was recently #1 Most Added two weeks in a row on the AC Radio chart. Paul Rodgers' "The Royal Sessions" is available worldwide on 429 Records.
