Welcome

Faster Than Light is a pop-rock band based out of Rockland County, NY. FTL is the brainchild of guitarist/songwriter Keith Lenn, a mainstay in the Rockland music scene for over 30 years. Fronted by Ken Reedy, and with long-time drummer Doug Maresca and workhorse bassist David Greenberg,  FTL puts together a brand of pop-rock not heard since the early 1990s. Fans liken FTL's sound to that of the Gin Blossoms, the Lemonheads, and Pearl Jam.

September 17th and October 1st! 

Faster Than Light has new music! FTL is debuting a track from the upcoming and, as of yet, unnamed and unfinished CD! The track is called Someone I Know and we hope you love it!

November CD Update and Cool Pic 

Hey everyone! Just a quick update to let you know that the new songs for the upcoming FTL CD are sounding great! We are hunkering down, not sharing much new music publicly, so be patient. And here is something supercool - check out Faith Federica Sciamanna, lead vocalist of Italy's The Shiver, holding up our CD! Like I said, supercool! Faith's website is here - FaithFedericaSciamanna.com and she's got some real cool new music out! Check her out! She rocks... hard!

Update on the new CD... 

I'm very excited that the band has begun to record the new CD. As of yet is untitled, but you have seen a lot of the "No Signal" promo pictures I have been posting all over social media and the FTL website... I'm not saying how "No Signal" connects with the Jessica Concept or this new collection of songs... for that you will need to be patient!

I've changed studios and engineers for this new collection of music. Johnny "Rod" at JROD Productions in Pomona, NY did a stellar job on the first CD and if you are ever in the position where you need a studio or engineer, JROD is top notch. He does a lot of work with some famous musicians such as DMC (Yes, that DMC from RUN DMC), Overkill, Generation Kill, and of course, Faster Than Light! Ha ha! I am now recording with Marco Ferreira from Goodbye Thrill and Zero at his home studio. It was just something that happened. We were in the studio, Marco said we should start recording some FTL songs, and it just happened. We have two songs almost completely done and the goal is to record between 14 and 16 songs and choose 13. The line up is the same, and the songs are killer. If you enjoyed the first CD, then you will love this one as well! Jessica makes her appearances, as do some familiar faces and places... Marco is engineering and it looks like he will be garnering some co-production credit as well, as he really has a unique take on my music. I look forward to this coming week when Ken gets into the studio and puts his stamp on the vocals!

Be patient... this is not going to be a quick process. I am hoping that this CD will be recorded, mixed, mastered, and reproduced/distributed by July, 2021. But I will continue to tease you with my promos as the songs build and the product establishes itself.

Until next time,

---Keith

 

 

Progress! 

Faster Than Light has just about finished the first two songs for the follow up CD to 2017's "Now We're Speaking French." I am not going to give away too much about the songs or the making of the CD, but I will say that there are a LOT of guitars on this bad boy and the songs may be just a slight departure from the first disc, but in a good way! It is definably Faster Than Light and I have high hopes for this collection of music! In the meantime, if you have not picked up a copy of "Now We're Speaking French" visit the FTL store on the website and grab a copy!
