Brogden Bay Presents is pleased to announce a CD Release pot luck party for “Five,” the most recent release by the Tall Men Group.

The Tall Men Group is five of L.A.s best songwriters at the top of their game. For eight years The Tall Men Group has been writing and performing songs. Year by year, they just get better and better. Plus, their concept is one of the most unique in the business.

Let founder Jimmy Yessian tell the story:

“In December 2011, I invited five friends, fellow Los Angeles performing songwriters whose work I admired, to join me for a monthly meeting at my home. The idea was to share new songs and help further each other’s musical endeavors. Just in case they thought they were too busy, I sweetened the pot by promising to prepare a gourmet meal for each meeting. To my delight, all five songwriters accepted. At the first gathering in January 2012 a songwriting challenge was proposed – to write a song about the coming year. Every month after that a new challenge was issued by someone in the group. We wrote songs based on many different topics including phone numbers, fears, historical events, loss, The Beatles… The songs that emerged from those challenges inspired us; we wanted to share them with the world, so we morphed into a live performing and touring act. Tall Men Group was born.”

Since then they’ve released four albums and are now releasing FIVE, their fifth!

Paul Zollo, a contributing editor for American Songwriter, writes about their first album:

“Really wonderful. Sure, you put six great singer-songwriters together who also happen to all be fine musicians, you would expect something good. But this is beyond good – this is great. These guys sound so happy and inspired making music together that they created a masterpiece … Each of these remarkable men are very well known in music circles in their own right. Together, they are mind-boggling! Such talent!”

Their shows are full of the easy camaraderie and humor that’s developed among them over the past several years.

If you are so inclined, please bring a dish to share for the potluck.

The Tall Men are Marty Axelrod, Severin Browne, John Stowers, Ed Tree and Jimmy Yessian.
